THE ROCK ISHAND ARGUS, THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1912.
Daily United States Weather Map
In a few days The Argus' Dictionary distribution must be withdrawn. We now find that there are many who have not
taken advantage of our generous offer because they didn't get a chance to clip the entire set of coupons. We want to
give them this LAST CHANCE. We want to close this great educational distribution in a blaze of excitement. We want
you and every one of your friends to have this wonderful book. Thousands of The Argus readers who have received a
copy of the beautiful Webster's New Illustrated Dictionary, are loud in their praise of its many excellent qualities which
make it a HOUSEHOLD TREASURE as well as a DAILY HELP in business houses, public and private institutions, schools
and colleges. It is an individual necessity.
