FTEN THOUSAND PUNTS OF
Yt&& BURBANK'S WONDERFUL
r^ ■ CRIMSON WINTER RHUBARft
We are going: to give them away
Read'our liberal offer.below, before you pass on.
The TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL is the widest read, beat
printed, best illustrated, most progressive and interesting magazine for
tanners, Fruit Growers, Poultrymen, Dairymen and tbe rural inhabitant
of any publication west of the Rockies. T
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 togoinloflve
thousand more homes on this coast. Hence, we make the following offer.
When yon finish reading this you will be compelled to say that it is fair
and that there is no "string" to it. It is mndo open and above board,
and is going to cost us a bunch of money. We don't mind that, so long
as you rend what we say and*act on it.
Now, as stated, we are goin^ to GIVE AWAY 10,000 plants of Ihir-
bank's Crimson Winter Rhubarb. This creation of the great Burbank is
one of the most wonderful plants in t» e world. It is called the"Mortgaite
Lifter," because it ie so 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
keeps growing. Not only that, but it is as ornamental aa the palm or
banana tree. Its leaves are very large and of a beautiful rich green, and
that at a timo 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
apk 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 TOWN
AND COUNTRY JOURNAL tor a year.
Now hold on I Doh't say that you knew that there was a "string" to
our offer. There isn't. The most liberal part ot this offer is yet to come.
Read on :
Write us for the Rhubarb Plants NOW. It will codt you nothing but
the postage stamp on your letter. When we send them we will also mail
you some sample copies ot the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL, and
will continue to mail them to you for three months. If at tho end of that
time you are dissatisfied with it-— if it does not prove up to your expecta-
tions — writt 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 thJ 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 so plentiful as they might be
and as they're sure to be some day. So you would better hurry up. Write
us NOW, if you want them. They're bound to go like wildfire, so act
quickly and secure them.
