The TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL is the widest read, best printed, best illustrated, most progressive and interestina magazine for Farmers, Fruit Growers, Poultrymen, Dairymen and the rural Inhabitant of any publication west of tlie Rockies. Twenty-five thousand people on the Pacific Coast take the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL into their homes and read it, because it's a great paper and has a message of interest for them— every Issue. But we want the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL to go into five thousand more homes on this coast. Hence, we make tlie following offer. When you finish reading this you will be compelled to say that it is fair and that there is no "string" to it. It is mado open and above board, and is going to cost us a bunch of money. We don't mind that, so long as you read what wo say and act on It. Now, as stated, we are going to GIVE AWAY 10,000 plants of Bar* bank's Crimson Winter Rhubarb. This creation of the great Burbank is one of the most wonderful plants in tl e world. It is called the "Mortgauo Lifter," because it is bo prolific and always sells so readily at a good price. A single plant will produce from 80 to 100 stalks at a time— and it keep! growing. Not only that, but it is as ornamental ns the palm or banana tree. Its leaves are very large and of a beautiful rich green, and that at a time of year when green vegatation is scarce.' Remember that we don't ask you to pay anything for the Rhubarb plants. They are free. We will send them to you postpaid and won't aek you for a cent. But to show that you are willing to be as liberal with us as we are with you, we want you to send us 50 cents for the 1 OWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL lor a year. Now hold on I Don't say that you knew that there was a "string" to our offer. There isn't. The most liberal part of this offer is yet to come. Read on : Write us for the Rhubarb Plants NOW. It will cost you nothing but the postage stamp on your letter. When we send them we will also mail you some sample conies of the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL, and will continue to mail them to you for three months. If at the end of that time yon are dissatisfied with it — if it does not prove up to your expecta- tions— write us and say so, and without a word of argument we will send you back your 50 cents. That will give you the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL three months FREE, to say nothing of the two Rhubarb Plants. Now, isn't that a fair offer? Isn't it a liberal one? A FINE ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE FREE That is what it will amount to— and a valuable premium to "boot." Of course if you don't tell us at th. end of three months to stop the paper, we will keep on sending it and will enter your name on our sub- scription books for a year. Now, we have secured only 10,000 of these'wonderful Burbank Crim- son Winter Rhubarb Plants. They're not bo plentiful as they might be and as they're sure to be some day.
