The Ghlldpcn Are Taklnu a Great
Interest In The Tribune's
Twenty Dollars in Gold to Be Given
as a Christmas Present to the Boy
or Girl Making the Largest Num
ber of Words Out of the Letters in
"T-H-E H-O-M-E P-A-P-E-R."
Ton Dollars in Gold to the Second,
and rive Dollars in Gold to the
Third Seventeen Other Cash Pre
sentsIt Costs Nothing to Enter
the Contest It Is Free to All Chil
dren Whose Parents or Guardians
Are Subscribers to The Tribune.
Only a Few Simple Rules An
nouncement Made Only a Week
Ago, Yet Several Lists Have Al
ready Been Received.
Considerable Interest Is already being
taken in The Ti Hume's Junior Kdueu
tlonnl Contest, announced last Satur
day, In which twenty cash Christinas
presents are to bo given to the young
readers of the paper. A similar contest
was conducted last year and it proved
so popular that It lias been decided to
tepoiu If this year, the only difference
being that Instead of the presents be
ing sleds, skates and the like, they will
all be in cash, so that the successful
little ones can select their own gifts.
These twenty presents are to be given
to the boys and girls who succeed In
making the largest number of words
out of the letters In "The Home Paper."
It Is not a very difficult matter, but It
! surprising how many mistakes are
made. Last year there were a whole
lot of hoys and girls who used words
with wrong letters, or used the same
letter too many times, and then there
weie a great many lists which did not
begin to have the full number of words
that could be found.
What the Twenty Presents Are.
The llrst present, which is to lie
given to the boy or girl who has the
l.ugest list of correct words, will make
an elegant Christmas gift for any one.
It is to be a twenty-dollar gold piece
a double eagle. Is not that worth try
ing for? Theie are veiy few hoys and
girls that get twenty dollars for a
Christmas piesent, but some one In
Scranton or vicinity is to get one this
year, for The Tribune Is going to give
it, and The Tribune never falls to do
what It promises.
Hut suppose you don't succeed in
getting tlic llrst pilze. Tlieie are other
presents that should make any young
person happy. There are two more
pie-etils in gold the first a ten-dollar
gold piece, and the second a live-dollar
gold piece. These will go to the boys
or girls sending the next largest num
ber of wolds.
llesldes these thn-e gold gifts there
ale seventeen other.-, all to he given
In cash. There ate two presents of
$..."0 each, live of $1 each, and ten of
fifty cents each. Twenty presents In
all, making a total of $."u.
The Conest Is Entiiely Free.
One attractive I'eatiuo. of this contest
is that it is entirely free. It costs
nothing to enter and the i tiles ate very
simple. Any boy or girl, whoe parents
or guardian is a subscriber to The
Tribune, can send In a list of words
at any time before live o'clock on Sat
urday afternoon, December 20, and the
list will be counted. If the paper is
not coming to your house, then all you
have to do is to get your father or
mother to order It sent every morning,
and you will be entitled to enter the
eonte-u just the same as other chiidien
whose parents are already taking the
paper, I'ei haps you have neither father
or mother; in that en--p the relative or
friend with whom you reside should
Some have asked how long they will
lie expected to take The Tribune. We
expect all who subset Ibe to take the
paper for at least one month, and they
must be subscribers when the lists are
sent In. After you have taken The
Tribune ono month we feel sure you
will like It so well that you will wish
It continued, but you are not obliged
to continue If you don't want to. Thn

Parish House. These Lessons (Lecture-Recitals,
one hour in length) are given every Saturday at
1 1 o'clock.
Fold the list do not roll.
The question has been asked as to
what will ho done. In cose two or more
have the same number of words. Some
think that the prizes should bo divided,
but The Tribune doca not consider this
a very satisfactory plan, as there Is
not much pleasure in winning u frac
tion of it prb.c. Accordingly It has
been decided to give tho llrst present
to the one who llrst entci'R tho largest
number of words. However, there Is
not much prospect of tics, as there was
not an absolutely perfect list In the
large number received Inst year, and
it is hardly likely tlint conditions will
change In this contest.
A Few Explanations.
Last ycor theie were a few who did
not clearly understand the rules, al
though Tho Tribune endeavors to make
them very clear. The received several
lists containing only four or five words,
the contestants evidently believing that
after a letter had been used in ono
word It could not be used again. This
Is wrong. Tho same letters ennnot bo
used more than once In the same word,
unless It appears moro than once In
"Tho Homo Paper," but the same let
ter can be used over and over again
In just as many words ns can be found.
There were also a few lists in which
The Tribune was never able to discover
what plan was pursued, as almost every
woid had letters that weie not in the
sentence used at all.
If the rules are not clearly under
stood, write a letter to "Contest Editor,
Scranton Tribune, Scranton, Pa.." and
your questions will be answered by
mall or through The Tribune.
Educational Advantages of Contest.
After the close of last year's contest
The Tribune received many letters from
the parents of children -who bad sub
mitted lists of words, expressing ap
preciation of the plan whereby their
children were aided in thelrv education.
The parents themselves were many
times surprised at the large number of
words that could be made out of so
few letters, and said the children were
enabled to learn many new words and
their meanings that had never been
bi ought to their attention before. They
also had fixed In their minds proper
combinations of letters and were great
ly aided In their spelling generally.
The system is certainly an educator
and will bo of value to any boy or girl
who endeavors to build the words, even
if they do not win even ono of the
List of Words Submitted Yesterday.
Quite a number of young people sent
In their lists of words yesterday. It
will be noticed that most of these
come from out of town. There Is plenty
of loom for others the last one re
ceived Is quite likely to win a present
as the first. Tliorougqhness is just as
important as promptness. Lists have
been received since the last announce
ment from the following young people:

against Dr. AV. A. Paine, the present

to seat Mr. Evans, but referred the
whole matter to the consideration of

Pew Relief Cases.
A'ery few relief cases were consideied
by the board. The most pathetic was
that of Mrs. Mary AA'ashburn, of 1131
South Washington avenue, whose son
was recently injured In Newnrk. She
recently received a letter from the
nurse who has been attending him,
stating that he is out of his mind as
the result of Injuries received and that
tho only thing ho Is able to say is his
name and the name of his mother.
Mrs. AVnshburn, with tears flowing
down her furrowed cheeks, asked the
board to allow her. transportation to

for lier son from the latter city to

him," she pleaded, "but I can't afford
The board decided that it could not
pay to send people all over tho country,
and inasmuch as the son is in a. hos
pital under good care, it was decided to
dismiss the case.
Mrs. Mnrgarot Moran, an old lady Gl
years old, whose husband died some
years ago, asked the board in the most
matter-of-fact, unconcerned way to
send her to the Hillside Homo, to. pass
the "rest of my days In pence," as she
said. The board decided to send her to
tho home, and she announced to Super
intendent Beemer that she was ready
to start at once.
The report of Superintendent Beemer
for the month ending October 31 was
read and accepted. It showed that
there are at present 4SS Inmates at the
home, an Inctease of nine In one month.
These inmates are classified as follows:
Insane males, 121; sane males, 151; In
sane females, 143; sane females, 07.
This report shows that tho homo Is
at present in a very overcrowded con
dition, and to relieve this state of af
fairs the members of the board have
practically decided to build a new alms
house, Architect Davis has prepared
preliminary plans, which are now being
considered by the homo committee.
There are at piesent two almshouses
tit the home, ono on each side of the
central building, which Is used for in
sane patients. It is proposed to con
nect these two wings with the main
building and use them for relieving the
overciowded condition of the Insane
The now almshouse will be erected on
the northerly side of the present build
ings, and will probably cost between
?IO,0UO and $50,000, It will bo built to
accommodate about 230 paupers. Tho
