Complimentary.—With pleasure I
certify to the comfort derived from the use of Mr. McCord’s spectacles. My daughter, for several years has been troubled with impaired vision, and in consequence was obliged to use glasses. By advice I purchased a pair, as I be lieved, to suit her eyes. She could see with these glasses, but their use occa sioned a constant headache, which gave us much anxiety. We called on Mr. McCord, and, after a careful exam ination, he pointed out the cause of the trouble in one of the lenses being ground differently from the other, be sides an unsuitable focus. Mr. McCord furnished her with glasses, by the use of which she has not been troubled or annoyed with headache as heretofore. I take great pleasure in recommending him to any person who is suffering from impaired or defective eyesight. F. C. Probasco, Bridgeton, N. J. John McCord, Optician, 59 Bank St., Bridgeton, N.

PROCLAMATION EY THE GOV ERNOR. State of New Jersey, ) Executive Department, Trenton. August 9th, 1884. j The World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Ex position, New Orleans, un der the joint auspices of the United States of Arner » ica, the National Cotton , gj" Planters’ Association and .. - the city of New Orleans, authorized the Governor of this State to ap point a Commissioner for New Jersey, who would attend to the duties of representing the State in connection with the Exposition. In pursuance of this authority, I appointed Caleb Henry Barney, Esq., of Bergen County, as such Commissioner. The Exposition derives its National character from an act of Congress, entitled “An act to encourage the holding of a World’s Industrial and Cotton Exposition in the year eighteen hundred and eighty-four,” approved by the President of the United States, February 10th, 1883. Under this act, which is substantially like the act under which the Philadelphia Centen nial Exposition was held, the President issued a Proclamation, Sept ember 10th, 1883. The United States Government has, by legislation, provi ded for a loan of §1,000,000, and the expendi ture of $300,000 additional, for making a collec tive Government exhibits. Nearly every State in the Union has made appropriations for a proper State exhibit, and I deem it of great im portance to New Jersey that its manufactures, agricultural interests, resources and advan tages should be fully and properly presented to the attention of the citizens of the United States and other countries that will attend the Exposition. The exhibit of our State at the Centennial of 1878, in Philadelphia, was one highly creditable and, I am convinced, was of advantage, not only to those engaged in manufacturing indus tries, but also to those engaged in other indus tries and occupations. I desire that the exhibit of our State in Now Orleans in 1884. shall be equal, if not superior, to that in Philadelphia, in 1870. To secure proper results, it is necessary that our citizens shall personally and actively interest themselves iu securing a proper exhibit, and to that end. I issue this Proclamation, urging upon all in dividuals and corporations, and all State oili cials, to aid in securing both individual and State exhibits, that will reflect credit upon our Commonwealth and the enterprise of its citizens. factoring and other industries of the State, the State officials, and all citizens interested in the Exposition, to meet for consultation in the Ex ecutive Chamber, in the City of Trenton, Au gust 19th, 1884, at 10 o’clock in the lorcnoon. I will be present with the State Commissioner, and F. C. Morehead, Esq., the Commissioner General of the Exposition, to give all informa tion desired. I shall, at that time endeavor to secure the appointment of an Advisory Com mitter* of our citizens to act with the State Commissioners in making our State exhibit one in which we shall all feel a just State pride. Given under my hand and the Great [l. s.] Seal of t lie State of New Jersey, at Tren ton, this ninth day of August, A. 1). eighteen hundred and eighty-four. 13y the Governor, LEON ABBETT. Henry C.

Friends, and enemies too, if we have them, passing through Philadelphia, are invited to make a con venience of the Big Store. It is between the Broad street station of the Penn sylvania R. R. and every where else, and is on the way from almost every station. It would be old news to tell you what the store is here for. We’ll skip that. For our present purpose it is here to be walked through, looked at, get rested in, and to hold your .baggage* while you run about town As you enter the door, any door almost, you see a place to leave your bag. Leave a dozen parcels there, if you like; no charge. Go all over the store, up-stairs and down; ask for a guide, if you need one; go alone, if you like unu oeuer. /liter you nave walked a few miles and climbed a pyramid or two, it may be lunch-time. In the basement is a place to get a bite ; and that’s the only part of the entertainment you pay for. We’d like to have that free, too, if we could. We fear the wrong people would come In a sense we do not pay much attention to visitors. We do not invite them in so often as we would, if the newspapers didn’t make us pay for every hospitable word. When they come, one or ten-thousand at a time, we simply let them alone, unless they ask for help We have our hands fuli any way; besides, we don’t want people to think that we ask them here to draw them into buying things. What we really do want is that everybody every where should have a pretty accurate notion of what is going on here; and that’s the whole of it. John Wanamaicer. Chestnut, Thirteenth and Market ?
