The list of our popular war books is presented below. They are all standard and well bound in leatherette covers. We send a choice of any two of these volumes free, postpaid, to' every subscriber, with the paper for one year, all for $r. We give the two books whether the subscription is sent direct to us or handed to a club-raiser. Those wishing more than the two books we send wTitli each yearly subscription, can get one volume as a premium for each subscriber sent in. Tlrus any two of tlese books is sent for a club of 2 ; three for a club of 3, and so on. But for a club of 9 we will send the club-raiser all the 13 books, while each subscriber gets his two, according ljo choice. f , To GlubRaisers: We furnish this blank for your convenience. You will find it useful when sending in your club, using a pencil in writing upon it. Subscriptions may be taken either at $2, for which we send, postpaid, both the paper for one year and the two volumes of Greeley's American. Conflict, or at $1, for which we send the paper one year and any two of our 13 " War Books," described on this page. In raising a club for a premium, a subscription counts just the same, whether in the $1 or $2 combination. We advise club-raisers to take the $2 subscriptions for the paper and the Greeley books, because, in our opinion, this is much the greater bargain, and the subscriber will appreciate this fact when he gets the Greeley books. After March 30 the price of the Greeley books will be $2 alone, and the price, therefore, of both paper and Greeley books, $3. Write plainly the titles of the two books selected opposite each subscriber's name. Gapturing a Locomotive. What It Is, and What Is Said of It. One of the most serviceable watches ever made, a stem-'winder and Etem Efeiter. The case is nickel, having the exact appearance of silver. THIS IS NO TOY, but an ordinary modern watch which will last for years, nd one will send this watch by mail to any per son who will send us a club of only FOUR YEARLY SUBSCRIBERS.

A watch like this a generation ago would have cost $20, but the fact i3 it contains appliances unknown at that time. In addition to the watch we send in every instance a handsome chain and charm, so that the outfit is ready to put on and wear as Eoon as received. We do notsell this watch without the paper, and no one can secure one of these splendid timepieces by itself. "We one year, and we will send you tho watch, chain and charm, postpaid, to your address absolutely free of charge. In addition, the subscribers will each receive two great war books, described elsewhere. This makes club-raising easy. No one, therefore, need be without a watch equal for keeping time to any in the neighborhood. It will not take an hour for anyone to get up this small club of only four subscribers at $1 each for the best family newspaper in the U. S. LADY'S FANCY CHAIN This chain, which is now the fashion for ladies to wear around the neck and attached to -watch, fan, glasses or purse, or any other article they wish to keep safely, is made of pale-hlue and amber heads.
