desirable things in a watch—cheapness and reliability. When it is known that for

TO PHYSICIANS AND INVALIDS.
The Rev. CHARLES E. KING,
formerly Secretary to the London Evangelical Alliance, and recently connected,
as resident Minister and Physician, with the Venezuelean Mission, will send Free
of Cost the Prescription with which he successfully treated, while in charge of
the large Mission Hospital, upward of one hundred cases of CONSUMPTION in the
first, second and third stages.
The remedy is equally adapted to
the treatment of Asthma, Catarrh, Bronchitis, and all affections of the Lungs,
Throat, and Air-Passages; while it speedily invigorates the enfeebled NERVOUS
SYSTEM, and energizes the deranged functions of the Stomach, Liver, and Bowels.

Agents should be careful in
directing their orders for our Original and "only Genuine" Extra Large Size
Stationery Prize Packages, which have become so popular through the fine quality
and value of their contents. As we have several imitators, who copy our Styles,
Advertisements, Premiums, &c., for the purpose of deceiving Agents, we are the
only manufacturers of the "Celebrated Rickards Prize Packages," and none are
genuine unless bought direct from us. Those parties who advertise to give a
"Premium Watch" to agents will not do so unless the agent first pays them from
$40 to $50 in cash. This "we challenge any of them to deny." We will present a
case of 100 of our Finest Packages to any agent who obtains a watch from them
without first paying the above-named amount. Their attempt to present premiums,
after our long-established custom, is in this case but a poor dodge. We still do
as we have done for years past, present free to every one who acts as our agent
a Fine Gold or Silver Hunting-Case Watch, "Genuine English Movements," and
warranted a correct time-keeper. These watches are presented on the spot or sent
with the first order. No one else does this. Our Wonderful Packages contain more
really valuable articles than any half dozen others ever sold. Among the
surprising contents of each package will be found Fine Stationery, Pens,
Pencils, Envelopes, Ladies' Fashion Plates, Designs for Needle-work, Cottage
Keepsakes, Household Companions, Letter-Writer's Instructor, Parlor Amusements,
Gent's Pocket Calendars for 1864, Union Emblems, Camp Companions for Soldiers,
Military Likenesses, Games, Army Advice. Rare Recipes, Many Ways to get Rich,
Yankee Notions, Fancy Articles, Rich and Costly Presents of Fashionable Jewelry,
&c., &c., all together worth many dollars, for only 25c. Agents make immense
profits. 100 to 200 per cent. allowed. We guarantee smart agents can make $15
per day. Our regular agents average that. Our Packages stand same as ever, above
all others for quality and quantity of contents. Agents wanted in every camp and
town in the country. Goods sent safe to all parts of the army. Send for our
Great New Circular for 1864, containing Extra Premium inducements, free. S. C.
