full of advice and instruction
especially intended for them,
and which is calculated to in
fluence, fo'i good and for happi
ness, the whole future' of their
lives.
It would iVe a's impossible
for us to enumerate beforehand
.1.1" .i
an tne goau tilings wuicii we
shall publish within the com
ing year, as to' tell in advance
what the weather will be for
every da'y.
Distinguished public men,
including Foreign Ministers,
of the Cabinet and Senators in
Congress write for the Ledger,
SI ore Motiey ia spent u po n
the Lodge? to make it a good
paper, than is spen't tfp'ofi any
other paper in tire world!.
More people take it nnd like
it than ever took any oiher
Taper on' this continent;
Jt is so interesting that
families who once begin to take
rt cmt never bear to give it .up
and they always consider that
the small price winch it costs
afford theni more fov the
money than' anything else that
they buy.
The Ledger is 'al frays full of
life. Nobody ever Comshihn
fhat even a sincrle number is
lull.
. It has the largest number of
great and distinguished
writers.
It contains the purest,
stvei&st and most delightful
love storie3, striking nan a-'ti very
and instructive biographical
and historical sketches,
It has the' most popular and
cnrefull) prepared collection
of scientific fa'ctl
All .questions growing, out
of the .domestic relations,
lovers' quarrels, law and busi
ness matters, are regularly an
swered hi its cokmns. A vast
iirtfount Of useful information
given through this attractive
department ot the Ledger.
Slany of the most distin
guished clergymen of the
country wrife for it. .
All the old wriferstlieir
names- are faniilar to the pub-
he, and it is nee'cHess to repeat
them there will continue to
write for the Ledger; and we
have engaged exclusively for
,the Ledger the very best and
most popular ot the rising
authors.
Good as the Ledger lias
heretofore been,the volume for
1872 will be better than any
jone yet published.
; The' best tn'at a long expe
rience enables us to select, and
that money, without strnt, Can
