Read what the New York Tribune, Nov. 8th, says:
THE. UNION PRIZE STATIONERY AND RECIPE
PACKAGE.

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, public benefactors.

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.
