The proof of each blank is sub
mitted to the scrutiny of Register

the Land Service of the Government,
is a practical printer.
These blanks, to be brief, ure
warranted to be perfect in wording,

Big reductions made on lots of
500 or more.
The blanks here named will be
added to constantly until we can
supply every blank needed at the
land office, whose printing by us is
justifiable on business grounds.
We mean precisely what we say,
and wish every atom of Saxon in
this statement to have its full
weight: We are not to be bucked
off the track by foreign opposition.
We buy our printing paper in Kan-
eas. ana, as a ruic senci
outside of the state which can be
had within it. When we know we
are getting an article reasonably, we
don't haggle about pi ices either.
We aim to assert, in letters of Hi ing
light Jo be observed especially by land
'attorneys in this land district, that
if any foreign agency offers bargains.
you can, upon authenticating properly
its offer, have it duplicated right in
Don't send away for what vou
can buy reasonably at home. That
is not the way to build up a country!
If land agents will not work for
the region of country in whose
lands they deal, who can be expected
to do so?
Cash must accompany all orders.

A Charming Testimonial.
We did not ask for the testimonial
which is hereto appended. Our sui prise
at receiving it "was, therefore, great, and
correspondingly pleasant. The history of
the case is this: Mr. Sadler, the advance
agent of the Johnson, Simpson & Co.
circus, while in town, among other work
ofdeied us to do the printing of 200 of
Johnson, Simpson & Co's Hotel Contracts.
We told him w e would print them so as
to send them to him at Hays City. We
did so. On the back of one of them he
writes to us as follows:
Lacrosse, Aug. 21, 1885.
W. S. Tilton, Esq, Ed. World:
Please except my thanks for the metro
politan wo?k you did for me. It is a con
solation to know that there are printers in
a country job office, as well as in the
cities. I speak from an experience amid
job work ot 16 years, and I can say, with
out tbe least exaggeration, that I never
had a better contract printed in the best
show printing establishments of the
country than the one you did for us.
Very cordially yours,
T. B. Sadler.

Please Take Notice I
There are certain persons seeking to
make the impression that I am not a
bona fide citizen of Trego count'; that at
most my residence is only temporary.
Such statements are wholly untru e. They
are made, either through ignorance of the
facts, or purposely to prejudice my can
didacy and mislead the unwary. Those
who favor fair dealing and believe in
honest politics, please tako notice.
