WE WANT SOME GOOD LOVE STORIES
AND WILL PAY $1000 FOR FOUR
Here is the offer:
$500 for the Best Short Love Story                  $150 for the Third Best Love Story
$250 for the Next Best Love Story                   $100 for the Fourth Best Love Story
These prizes are worth trying for. It's possible to get fifty cents a word, for if the bet ntory that comes to us
happens to contain only a thousand words we shall give $500 to the author. But there must be in every case
at leat one thousand words and not more than three thousand. We want bright tories of romantic intereg:
want them well-told, grong and original. Probably we shall buy a great many. It is an advantage to us to
have the manuscripts typewritten. All mut be in our hands by July 25. Address

CAN YOU TELL PEOPLE
HOW TO RAISE FLOWERS?
If you can, tell us. It is the little hints we want; not long essays.
Have you found out something about weeding that your neighbor
doesn't know ? Do you know a way to make a special variety of
flowers grow fast? Or a new way to treat the soil: to take up
flowers, or to care for them in winter: protecting them from in-
sects or making them bloom: anything out of the ordinary: any-
thing good: anything helpful that another flower-lover can do or
learn from. And in return we will pay:
$25 for the Newet and Moft Practical Hint
$15 for the Next Bent Hint
$10 for the Third Bent Hint
$5 for Each of the 25 Next Bent Hints
$17 5 in all for 28 Hints
BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THIS
You may send as many hints as you like. But EACH MUST
BE WITHIN 100 WORDS, and each must be written on a
separate sheet of paper, so that each can be considered by itself.
We want a large number, so have no hesitation in sending all you
can. Mail not later than August I next to
THE FLORAL EDITOR OF
THE LADIES' HOME JOURNAL
THE QUESTION BOX
FOR FEBRUARY AND MARCH
The answers to the Question Box for both February and
March were so numerous that it was impossible, up to the date
that this issue went to press, to decide on the awards. We
hope to announce these awards, however, in the next Journal.
