FOR THREE BEST ADVERTISEMENTS. The Chicago Daily News has reduced its price from two cents to One Cent per copy. For a year past its sales have been over "a-million-a-week," and it believes it now sees the way to safely lead in placing an ideal Amerioan daily paper upon the basis of the lowest unit of American coinage ONE cent. To successfully accomplish this end two things are essential : First- To make as good a newspaper as the best, if not a little better; second- to let every man, woman and child in the Northwest know U's being done, and done at one cent a day. The Daily News believes that it is competent to take care of the first named condition, and knows of no better way of meeting the second than by general newspaper advertising. To do the latter most effectively it here sohcits the co-operation of all who believe themselves competent to write an effective newspaper advertisement. To induce the best effort in its service in this matter The Daily News will reward the writers of the three best advertisements submitted, with three cash prizes, aggregating Fifteen Hundred Dollars, divided as follows : First Cash Prize- For best advertisement, $1,000.00 Second Cash Prize- For second best advertisement, 300.00 Third Cash Prize- For third best advertisement, 200.00 Total'. $1,500" The advertisement may be a single announcement, or a series of announcements not exceedieg six in numker. The space required must not exceed that occupied by this advertisement- eight inches deep, srx and one-quarter inches wide. For the general guidance of all who enter the competition, the following ten points are briefly stated as being those which The Daily News will require to be most prominently brought out.
