Agents should be careful in
directing their orders to us, as several small unprincipled imitators of our
styles have sprung into existence lately, who copy our advertisements, and
"promise" the same Premiums that we have "given agents" for years. Those parties
can not fulfill those promises; consequently, agents can not be dealt with
honorably by them. Those parties who advertise those Premiums require agents to
send them from $40 to $50 in cash for their poor imitations before they can
receive any thing. "We" do as we have done for years, present our customers with
a Beautiful Gold or Silver "Hunting-Case Watch" on the spot, or send it with
their "first order." No delay, no promises. We do it, and guarantee all our
watches as perfect time-keepers, OR REFUND THE MONEY AND PRESENT THE GOODS.
Agents will notice that our Prize Packages must be of extra quality, and meet
with a ready sale, or they could not be imitated. We are the sole importers of
the beautiful watches we present to agents, and no other Houses have them. Look
at the list of articles contained in each one of our popular, unexcelled, and
valuable extra large size STATIONERY, RECIPES, and YANKEE NOTION PRIZE PACKAGES.
Fine Writing Materials, such as Paper, Pens, Pencils, Envelopes, Blotters,
