pictogram puzzle

We are looking for puzzle experts and lateral thinkers to help to decipher this pictogram puzzle from our collections.  The baffling advertisement features in the current Abbey House exhibition “Fate and Fickle Fortune”.  Dating from about 1860 is is advertising a lottery with a very handsome £30,000 jackpot prize.

The first line appears to read “Catch Fortune When You Can”, but we would appreciate help with de-coding the rest, so any suggestions would be very welcome.
