asking the merchants to put up
with this little inconvenience until
the Christmas shopping days are over
after which another system will he devised.

t urn of 1760 000. will he printed by the
purchaser as he sues fit to have them
lithographed. The bonds as is well
known, will be in certificates of it.000
each and there art! many purchasers
who have their own lithographing designs
it will be left to them to do with
the bonds as they please.
