some book, elegantly illustrate!, filled
to the covers with interesting matter,

by wishing Yick many years of pros
perity, and recommending all-of our
readers to inclose ten cents -to him
for one or two of his superb catalogues.
This work, although costing bnt five
cente, is handsome enough for a gift

Address .IxV.nes'Yick, Rochester, New
It is a fact long since established,
savs the Helena Herald, that the mer-elin-nf
wim Hhi.ri!lv mrrouizes the ad
vertising columns of the press, sells his
wares cheaper than the one whose name
is seldom or ever seen. The reason is
patent, for by thus advertising, his sales
are tripplcd and a less proportionate
profit makes him the greatest gainer.
