THE UPPER DES MOINES, it will be granted, fully covers the local field, and We want all to secure the benefit of our splendid picture premiums. We have secured the services of several wide-awake young men to make a thorough house-to-house canvass of Kossuth county to present our liberal offer and take subscriptions. They will call at every home and place possible, and we are sure you will be glad to see them, for they will show you the finest specimens of large CRAYON AND WATER COLOR PORTRAITS you ever saw, and if you subscribe for THE UPPER DES MOINES, or already a subscriber, you will be entitled to one on our premium terms, to be made from any good photograph or tintype you wish. The Portraits are Real Works of Art, and hand-worked, not cheap prints, such as you may have been offered before, but true likenesses of yourself or friends, such as you will ever prize. Remember these portraits will be offered free of charge, as the only expense you will be asked to pay will be the regular subscription price of THE UPPER DES MOINES a year in advance and the slight cost of the materials for the portraits and actual expense of shipping and delivering them. We are able to offer fine portraits on these superior terms on account of our large contract for them and by reason of the advantage in having a large increase to our subscripiion list. Remember this offer will be only temporary, as it will involve a heavy expense. Look through your albums and select the picture you want enlarged.
