THE STUDIOUS MAN.
Out through the gates of Lpalian
One morning rode a studious man.
A cake of Ivory Soap in view.
"No nlknli this soap contains.
"Ah, whither bound?" a traveler cried. It leaves the lace and takes the stains ;
Who rested by a fountain side. It cons from oils, sweet as the rose
"I go to seek," replied the sre, Thr.t in the palace garden grows ;
"The greatest wonder of the age." It floats like cork upon the wave;
" Then from your saddle now descend With this we may both wash and shave "
And call your journey at an end, " Enough, enough!" the student cried;
For here within this sack I hold "You've saved me from a longer ride,"
The greatest wonder bought or sold." And turning round his wisdom showed.
And stooping down, the speaker drew Tor back to Ispahan he rode.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the
Ivory';" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remark
able qualities of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

If some of your citizens would rather
own the bridge, I will build it for them,
and at a much less price than any other
contractor will charge. Moreover, I will
guarantee my bridge to stay put.
I am right glad to ieirn that the $300
of time and expense I lost with you last

to reduce his rates, You and the farmers
opposite reap the benefit of it.
All along the river ferry rates are fall-
