is not necessarily good because it Is thick and heavy;
some of it is made of wood stock, and some of rags. A
thin sheet of rag paper is better than a thick sheet of
wood paper ; It will fold better, take ink better, and, if it
is to be subjected to a good bit of handling, will last a
great deal longer. Wood paper can be furnished at a lower price than rag paper;
mind, we do not say it Is cheaper. It may serve for a blank that is to be used only
once or twice?but after being folJoJ several times it will crack at the fold, maybe
break in two. You can notice this in wood envelopes?the edge will appear rough,
and the liability of bursting in the mails is about two to one, when compared with
rag stock. We furnish either grade?but we cannot furnish the rag grade at the

is pronounced by those who have tried it
as the veiy best biood purifier and nerve
