W think we can show how much cheaper it is to take the Lady' Book at Three Dol lar than any other magazine at Two Dollar. W wilt take a late number of both. Tb Two Dollar Magazine contained 86 articles, the Lady's Book 2. The Tvvo'Dollar Magazine contained 32 en gravings, the Lady's Book 5ti. The Two Dollar Magazine contained 64 pa ges, the Lady's Book 100. Twenty-four "more engravings, twenty six more articles, and thirty-six more pages, nearly double the quantity. The lowest club price of the Two Dollar Magazine is $1,25; lowest club price of Lady's Book $1,07, only 42 cents difference in the price, which is three and a half eent on each number, and for that urn (three and a half cents), you receive twenty-six more articles, twenty-four more engravings, and thirty-six more pages month ly certainly a very cheap three and a half cents' worth. This view of the rase has probably never before been presented, but it it a true statement, which any lady can con vince herself of bv comparing the two maga zines. TERMS, CASH IN ADVANCE.
