AYRnHnIx CATTL.-This is one of
the recognized dairy breeds, and comes
to us from Scotland, The specialty of
the Ayrsh ire is that of a milk-produi
cer, for the manufacture of chees' and
the supply of cities with the lieteal
fluid. The milk of the Ayrshire Is not
especially rich in cream, but in all the
other essentials that go to make up
good milk it Is equal to the best; and
the breeders of Ayrshiros claim that
the quantity produoed by their favo
r'tes is grcater than that pro
dued by any other bree(l. They
are of lair Hize, and possess moderate
beef producing qualities. In color they
are not vtry uniform but red and
white prominate. Small red, black,or
brown spots, - on a white ground, is
perhaps a more uniforn marking than
any other, alt hough in many cases the
red predoniuates. The cows usually
have small heads and horns, light
neeks t1id shoulders, deep flanks, and
heavy ihhadquariters,with all the marks
of deep milkers.

11aving had numberless iaquiries for
advertising eards from ladies in all
parts of the country who are interest
ed in the prevailing fashion of making
"Card Collections," we af'e having
printed for them a set of seven beauti
fl cards, ech in six colors and on a
gold background, in the very highest
degree of art, illustrating Shakspeare's
"Seven Ages of Man," We have spared
no expense in these cards-they are
simply little art gems. Our only aim
has been to publish the finest cards yet
shown. Applications tor them have
come in so rapidly that nearly the
whole edition Is engaged before the
receipt by us of the cards from the
artist. We have therefore been obliged
to adopt the.following plan fMi the dis
tribution of the remainder: No more
of the gilt Shakspeare cards, seven in
the series, will be sent excepting upon
the receipt of a statement from a grocer
that the person applying for the cards
has bought of him on that day at least
seven bars ot Dobbins' Electric Soap,
with price pt.., for same. All apply
ing in this manner toill. receive the full
set of seven cards graati by mail. This
will. insure us that our frienus and pa
trons get their share of these beautiful
designs, although it in no manner re
pays us for the Costof the cards, Your
grocer has the soap or will get it, and
the purchase by you of seven bars of
it at one time will secure for you gratis
seven really beautiful cards. The soap
improves with age, and is an artiole of
necessity in your house every week.
Therefore you are not asked to buy a
useless article, but one that you must
have anyway. Please send us your
application at once, and tell your lady
friends making "Card Collections," to
do the same. grocers do not have the
cards to deliver. Buy the soap of then,
send us their bill, and we will mail you
the cards free. Yours respeetfully,
I. L. CRAGIN & CO., 116 ;outh 4th
Street, Philadelphia, Pa.
P. S.-Ladies not wishing to buy
soap can get the oards by remitting
