a Valuable Secret
The' U. S. Governmentf uses' paper for its' currency
made by a secret process from the very finest materials.
This paper is used exclusively for making legal tender.
It is tne only paper that will stand the wear.
Library Bureau Standard Cards are also of a peculiar
quality. The process is a secret. No other manufac
turer knows how to make the same kind of stock.
It is used exclusively for making L. B. cards. It is
the only stock that will stand the wear.'
-The superiority of L. B. Standard 'Cards naturally
makes them cost a trifle more per thousand than
ordinary cards. They are worth it. A large user
found that each card cost about one-fifth of a cent,
while the cost of writing it .up was approximately
twenty-five cents. A card representing an invest
ment of that amount should have the longest possible
life and the quality to resist wear. All L. B.
Standard cards have just that.
We have also any quality of card for any land of
record. Ten grades and ten prices Whatever your
requirements, whatever the price"!,. B. Cards are
right. Why not send to usto-day for estimates
