Certificates. I have thoroughly tested the new
"National Revolver," and find it an effective weapon, of sure fire and
convenient size. At fifty yards, I think I could with this Pistol kill at every
shot. I take pleasure in recommending it as a weapon in every way desirable. In
company with Capt. Scott, Provost-Marshall, and other officers, I fired this
pistol a large number of times, and not one cartridge failed to explode.
(Signed,) JOHN CHARLESTON, Chief of Police, Cairo, Ill. We
have one of the " National Revolvers" now in use, and pronounce it one of the
most perfect things of the kind we over saw. It is simple in construction,
substantial, sure fire, and shoots with the force and accuracy of a rifle. Any
one in want of a good and reliable weapon can not do better than procure a
"National Revolver." (Signed,) J. S. VINCENT, Editor and Proprietor " New Era."
We, the undersigned, having used and thoroughly tested the National Revolvers,
have no hesitancy in saying that, for accuracy, force, and convenience, we think
they are far superior to any other Revolver yet produced. M. C. LOOMIS, with J. G. and W.

OPINIONS OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. Saturday Review. A healthier novel we have not
seen for many a season. To have depicted such a character as Mattie Gray, and to
have depicted it successfully, is no slight achievement either ethical or
aesthetical. Athenoeum. "Mattis ; a Stray," is a novel
that ought to take a higher rank than that of an ephemeral work of fiction.
Mettle is a charming heroine. She and her life are painted after the life. The
story is full of interest at every page. Spectator. There is great ability
in this book. Sent by Mail, Postage prepaid, on
receipt of Price.
