An illustrated magazine with its wealth of illustrations, its stories of adventure and . love, its descriptions of travel which carry you to the remotest ends of the earth, and its instructive articles for young and old these are the first requisites for your own enjoyment and the entertainment and proper education of your children. ' - ' To secure for you the best and most interesting of the great illus, ' trated magazines at the lowest possible price has been the aim of the : editor of this journal. That we have succeeded we leave our readers to judge. A special contract recently entered into with The Cosmo politan, which seeks to become better known in this neighborhood, has enabled us to offer you a year's subscription to the greatest of the illus trated magazines together with a year's subscription to this journal, ; Both Togeth er 0 ne Yearfor 0 nly $ 1.80 In this way you secure your own home paper and an illustrated '. magazine at a price that is only about a fourth of what some of the -illustrated magazines sell for. For three years The Cosmopolitan has .; undisputedly claimed that it reached the largest clientele possessed by . any periodical, daily, weekly or monthly, in the world. It was The Cosmopolitan which sent Julian Hawthorne to India to let the world know the real horrors of famine and plague. It was The Cosfnopol-;' . itan which established at its own cost a great Free Correspondence University which now has over 20,000 students on its rolls. It was The Cosmopolitan which offered a prize of 3,000 for the best horse-... less carriage and prizesfor best plans for public baths, and best arrange- .. ment of sewer and pipe systems for cities. It was The Cosmopolitan which set the presidents of great schools and universities seriously ' discussingthe defects of existing educational systems. It is The Cosmopolitan whose enterprise is always in the lead in advancing the .world's civilization. ' :so succeeded in arranging for two additional offers in lection willi this journal and The Cosmopolitan. . After phcing on your book -table the best of the illustrated magazines ' in connection with your home paper, probably the most important ; thing in a household for every household, in fact js the proper keeping of accounts.

More people fail in business because they lo not keep their accounts straight than from any other cause.. Fanners and mechanics, husbands and wives, students and .profes sional men, young and old, rich and poor, all need some knowledge of accounting. By the "Ellis System" this is easily acquired through -hnme study. ) , N The cheapest price at which this is sold at retail is $1.75 (express from Michigan unpaid), but The Cosmopolitan has purchased many ... thousands of sets so that it may offer them if taken in connection with this paper and The Cosmopolitan I Three Together for Only $ 2.25 One other opportunity we offer you.
