For businesa. purposes, and we have forwarded
inch samples as have been at onr command.
We now find in the Sovert'ujn of industry, the

Is the owner of Shares of stock
in Co-operative Store No. (town)
(State) . Entitled to the tenefits and
subject to the restrictions as defined
in the Articles of the Association.
(The attempt is here made to condense and
simplify co-opeiation. There is no necessity
for a President and Seoretary nor formal meet
ings nor resolutions. The three best men for
Directors, with the right to drop them for
sufficient cause at any time, is all that is
required, and any company of stockholders
can elect them in the simplest democratic man
ner. Yet, if a more complicated system of by
laws and the like is preferred, there is no
objeotion to it.)
The Grange Room.
The Grange is a family. No other associa
tion on earth so fully repretents this sacred
and holy relationship. It is in this home-like
social feature that the great attraction and
strength of our Order is found. In the multi
plicity of business with which our meetings
are crowded care should be taken thot the social
family feature 19 not overlooked or neglected.
As at the close of the labors of the day on the
farm, the family gathers together in some
pleasant room for social, mutual lntercouroe,
and tojtnder the evening pleasant and profita
ble, so jhould the family of the Grange,
leaving'tbe cares and labors of the farm and
househould, assemble together to exchange
views, to broaden the sphere of thought, to en
joy social Intercourse, recreation and rest, and
thereby renew their energies for the labors of
One important thing in this connectioo is a
pleasantly situated and a pleasantly furnished
room in which to meet. Where circumstances
re such as to admit of such a thing, this pre
paration should not be neglected. But what
ever may be the room, a few pictures on lht
walls, bouquets of flowers on the officer's desks,
a few evergreens tastefully displayed here and
there, can always be obtained,, especially in
this region, such as will give an appropriate,
cheerful and home-like aspect to the place is
meeting. The expense, if any, and trouble of
but trifling, while the gain in enjoyment can
not be computed in dollars and cents.
Brother Bmedley, in bis valuable little volume
just published "Manual of Jurisprudence and
Co-Operation of the Patrons of Husbandry,"
in alluding to this matter says: "I can con
eeive of no more beautiful and enlivening
eene than a Grange room, furnished with sim
ple erace and taste, with music and singing,
the brothers and slaters putting away for a
time the burdens and cares of dally tabor and
entering folly into the spirit of the occasion.
To woman, more especially, is this occasion
one of inestimable value. vitn our lsoiawa
homes, wilh the burdens of daily responsibility
resting upon the women of our country, the
meeting of the Grange furnishes a season of
reJt and enjoyment, which is an absolute ne
cessity to the sisters of the Order. The place
of meeting should be made the most pleasant
and attractive in the neighborhood. Let the
beauty of the room, the genial, harmonious
Bpirit of the member, the beauty and Bacred
ness of our ritualistic work, the music both
instrumental and vocal, and the social spirit ot
the occasion, all tend to make these gatherings
so attractive, that all should look forward to
the meeting of the Grange with pleasing antici-Dations."
We are happy to Btate that the suggestions
of Brother Smedlev are cretty generally
carried out here in California. Many of our
Granges have constructed elegant and con
venient halls for their especial use, and in
places where ,such an expense would be too
great a'burdea upon the Grange, care is taken
to provlde'lhe best accommodations which the
place will afford. Music, both instrumental
and vocal, is almost universal, while a good and
appropriate use is made of the flowers which
abound with such profusion in our genial Call

A $4.00 BOOK FOR $1.50.
Tho People's Common Sense Medical
Adviser, in plain English, or Medicine Simpli
fied, by It. V. Pierce, M. D Counsellor-in-Chief
of the Board of Physioians and Surgeons
at the World's Dispensary, Buffalo, N. Y. The
above work a book of about nine hundred
largo pages, profusely illustrated with wood
engravings and colored plates, and well and
strongly bound will be sent postpaid to any
address for One Dollar and Fifty Cents, mak
ing it the cheapest book ever offered to the
American people. Other books treating of
domestic medicine, of like size and style of
binding, and not nearly as well illustrated,
with no colored plates, and some of them con
taining no prescriptions, and making known
no means of self cure for the diseases which
they discuss, sell for from three dollars and
a half to five dollars. Were Dr. Pierce's Work
not published by the author, printed and bound
with his own machinery, and were it sold
through agents, as other like works are, the
price of it would have to be not less than four
dollars. For when the publisher pays the au
thor a fair price for his production, then adds
a profit to bis investment large enough to sat
isfy himself and compensate him, not only for
his labor, but also for the risk of peenniary
loss which he assumes, in taking the chances
of the enterprise proving a success, and when
the State, county and canvassing agent has
each received bis profit, they have added to
the expense of a book, that originally cost
about $1.25, so much tint the people have lo
pay not less than $1.00 for it. Tue People's
Medical Adviser, on the contrary, is placed
within the pecuniary reach of all classes by the
author, who adoptH the plan of tho Grangers,
dispeni-ing with middlemen and giving the
benefit of their profits to the people, offering
his book at a price little above actual cost of
publication. That those desiring the book
may run no risk of losing their money, in
sending it through the mails, the author adver
tisex that money addressed to him at Buffalo,
N. Y and enclosed in registered letters, may
be at bis risk of loss. The author's large cor
respondence with the people upon medical
matters, which we are credibly informed fre
quently exceeds three hundred letters a day,
and requires several trained and skillful medi
cal assistants and short-hand reporters to enable
blm to enttrtain and answer them, as well as
his large daily dealings with disease at the
World's Dispensary, appear to have peculiarly
fitted him for writing the work, by rendering
him very familiar with the every day medical
needs of the people. He endeavors in this
work to answer all the numerous questions
relating to health and disease that have been
addressed to him by the people from all parts
of the land, and hence it contains important
information for the young and old, male and
female, single and married, nowhere else to of
found. All the most prevalent diseases be
both sexes are also plainly and fully considered
and means of self cure made known. Unlike
other works on Domestio Medicine, it includes
the subjects of Biology, Cerebral Physiology,
Hvoiene. TemDeramenta. Marriaee. Beoroduo-
tion. etc.. all of which are treated in an original
and interesting manner. It a if compendium of
Anatomical, rnyiioiogicaiara aieaicai oaence,

Our long experience in obtaining patents for
Inventors on this Coast hits familiarized us
with the character of most of the inventions
already patented; hence we are frequently
able to save our patrons the cost of a fruitless
application, by pointing them to the same
thing already covered uy a patent. We aro
always free to advise applicants of any
knowledge we have of previous applications

We invite the acquaintance of all parties con
nected with inventions and patent right busi
ness, believing that the mutual conference of
legitimate business and professional men is
mutual gain. Parties in doubt in regard to
their rights as assignees of patents, or pur
chasers of patented articles, can often receive
advice of importance to them from a short
call at our office.
Remittances of money, made by individual in
ventors to the Government, sometimes mis
carry, and it has repeatedly happened that
applicants have not only lost their money
but their inventions also, from this cause and
consequent delay. We hold ourselves re
sponsible for all fees entrusted to our agency.
The urincipal portion of the patent business of
tuls coast nas oocn uone, una is sun ueiug
done, through our agency. We are familiar
with, and have full records, of all former
cases, and can more directly judge of the
value and patentability of inventions discov
ered here than any other agents.
Situated so remote from the seat of government,
delays are even more dangerous to the invent
ors of the Pacific Coast than to applicants in
the Eastern States. Valuable patents may be
lost by the extra time consumed in transmit
ting specifications from Eastern agencies back
to this coast for the signature of the inventor.
We take great pains to preserve secrecy in all
confidential matters, and applicants for pat
ents can rest assured that their communi
cations and business transactions will be held
strictly confidential by us. Circulars free.
We have superior artists in our own office, and
all facilities for producina fine and satisfac
tory illustrations of inventions and machinery,
for newspaper, book, circular and other
printed illustrations, and are always ready to
assist patrons in bringing their valuable it
coveries into practical and profitable use,
