THE. UNION PRIZE STATIONERY AND RECIPE
We have been shown a package of
Stationery and Jewelry put up by Messrs. Rickards & Co., of No. 102 Nassau
Street, and must express our surprise at the quantity and quality of the
articles they give for 25 cents. We must confess we were sceptical at first, but
seeing is believing. There is no secret in their trade. As they are largely
engaged in the manufacture of Jewelry, and purchase all their other articles for
cash, they manage, by their large sales and strict business integrity, to make a
small profit on each package. There is no need of our citizens going to
stationery stores when they want small quantities, and paying exorbitant prices,
when they can get a dollar's worth for twenty-five cents. They have completely
revolutionized the Stationery business, and now a poor man can get as much
Stationery as he will want in a year for twenty-five cents. They are, indeed,
AGENTS — EITHER MALE OR
FEMALE, will be convinced, by sending a stamp for our circular, that our
Prize Package. Contains more Articles, of a better quality, and Sells more
Readily than any other in the market. For your benefit we enumerate each article
in the package :—Six sheets commercial note paper, six sheets ladies' note, six
sheets ladies' billet paper, one accommodation penholder, two fine steel pens,
one fine pencil, one sheet blotting paper, one fine engraving (6x10) of General
McClellan, six white envelopes, with patriotic Union designs in colors, six
ladies' white envelopes in beautiful colors, six buff envelopes, Seventy-five
Valuable Recipes, which alone make the package sell rapidly. In addition to
these articles, we give with each package a
SUPERB PIECE OF JEWELRY,
of a richer quality than anything
in the market, and WORTH DOUBLE THE PRICE paid for the whole, consisting of the
following articles:—Brooches, lockets, sleeve buttons, rings, crosses, gents'
pins, &c. If the contents of one of our packages were purchased elsewhere they
would cost at least $1. Agents can make from $5 to $10 a day.
Read what the New York Times,
Nov. 9th, says:
A BLESSING FOR POOR PEOPLE.
A man who gives a dollar's worth
of anything for twenty-five cents in these hard times is a friend to the poor
man, in the broadest sense of the term. Rickards & Co., No. 102 Nassau Street,
are public benefactors. They put up a Stationery and Jewelry package containing
such a quantity of useful articles, that if bought elsewhere, would cost about
one dollar. We are assured by parties who sell their package that $5 a day can
be realized by agents. RICKARDS & CO., 102 Nassau Street, N. Y.
