Volume 4. Air For 4 W«*WU fyiie THE -BEST! Local The Best Farmer's Paper. The Best News and Political Paper And a Maguificent Picture AND BETTER STILL. Almost every body knowa the high val ue of tbe American Agriculturist, a journal that haa just completed its 37th successful year. It is a lagre, beautiful Journal, full of plain, practical rdiabte, most unefttl in• fonmtion, for every roan, woraaii and child, It print* every year 700 to 800 original En gravines of labor-saving, labor helping contrivances, many of them home made also of animals, plants, construction of buildings, etc., etc. The American Agri culturist also constantly publishes expos ures of the various humbuits and swindlers that prey upon tbe people with their artful schemes These exposures save tens of thousands of dollars to its readers every year. With all its splendid features, and an out lay of over $25,000 a year )n collecting and preparing information, engraviugs, etc., the circulation is so large- that It is sunpli ed to subscribers, post-paid, foronly |1.60 each year. BUT we are happy to annoutce that we have made arrangements to furnish to cash sub scribers, BOTH the Weekly Press and Da kotaian and the American Agriculturist, for the small turn of only $3.00 a year, both post-paid, which is but a trifle over five cents a week. Who will not smoke one cigar less a week, or save five cents from some other needless expenditure, if necessa ry, to constantly supply himself and family with both of these journals? Remember, only $3.00 pays for the Weekly Press and Dakotaian and the American Agriculturist, both sent post-paid for a WHOLE EAR. Please tell your neighbors of this.' Send in your subscription at once. The American Agriculturist is just entering its 38th Annual Volume, and now is the time to subscribe. AND STILL BETTER. The publishers of the American Agricul turist have secured Marshall's new, large, magnificent STEEL PLATE, TBE FAR MER'S PRIDE," one of the finest works of this great artist, whose pictures of Wash ington and Lincoln are of world wide repu tation. So fine is this new work that Mr, Marshall received $3,000 for engraving the steel plate alone. It was so highly valued that thirty good judges subscribed $25 each for 30 copies of the first or artist proofs, and no copy of the picture can be bought for less than $3.00. But the publishers of the American Ag riculturist, have just secured the Plate, and having the large facilities for multiplying it, they propose to present this Splendid En* graving, on fine plate paper (22 28), deliv ered post-paid, to every subscriber for volume 38 of that Journal, who sends 20 cents extra to cover cost of packing, mailing, and postage on the engraving. THEREFORE Subscribers can secure, through this office, the Weekly Press & Dakotaian and the American Agriculturist both post-paid for one year and also (delivered free) copy of the above named Steel Plate Engraving, that will be a great adornment to every home —ALL THREE for the small sum of only $3 00. BQTThe three would be CHEAP at $8 or $10. The WHkly Prats and Dakotaiun and the Weak' ly Inter-Ocean, the best political and news journal in the nest, both one year for $3.
