BALLARD PATENT BREECH- LOADING RIFLES AND CARBINES,
Carrying the copper water-proof
cartridge, and also using ordinary loose ammunition. This arm is now admitted by
all competitors to be superior to any other ever offered to the public. Its
simple construction and perfect workmanship are a sure guarantee against getting
out of order. The great advantage of loading with either fixed or loose
ammunition alone makes it superior to all others. These arms are made for both
sporting and military purposes, and have been adopted both by the General
Government and a number of States. We have the highest testimonials of their
efficiency and durability.
We also offer to the Public our
new Cartridge and loose ammunition loading revolver. This arm has no equal as a
belt or pocket weapon. No one wishing a first-class arm should be without one.

FINE WATCH FREE,
And $15 Per Day Easy.
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
