About Knives, A cheap Pocket-knife can be bought at every Store, but it is not the kind you want. One dollar is the ïowest price that a really good knife can be sold for. This ïiloumn is placed in this paper to adveri e the very best Pocket-knife ever sold. It is .1. ('. Tiumarsh's Sheftield Steel Knife. Never buy a knife only beeause it looks well. Jf blades are not the best Sheffield steel they will soon bend, no matter how they will look. Still, you want a fine-looking knife. The United States law provides that only samples to agents and to the trade will be admitted free of duty. You can, therefore, see the advantage that I have in sending sar f es to agents over those who deal in ahettield goods in America. I am an advertising agent ! I am eotrusted with a certain amourt to spend advertising these knives (the best value ever seen in America at One Dollar each). Now, the knife is ita own best advertisement. Imagine a Pocket-knife (3i inches long) with the most beautifully-grainea vory handle- genuine African ivory in ind withtwo blades of the very best Sheffield steel that will last a lifetime and out like a razor. The tips of the handles are heavily plated with sterling silvei-. And then a very nice chamois leatber case goes with each knife. Now. .rould it not be easy work selling this knife at One Dollar eavh? I know it would. for it looks as if it were worth two dollars. And so it is if you compare it with the value offered in the ordinary Store. _ Is not thi knife its own best adver tisement. You can make $4 per day selling the e knives. This is a genuine and straigtforward statement. This is counting that you show it to only twelve buyers every day. And every one that sees it wiil say it is a good value for $1. The knives are sold to you at $8 per dozen ; you sell them at $1 each. I determined to use large sum of advertising money entrusted to me in sending out free samples to those who promise to act as agents for the sale of these knives I will send you a free sample, but ■ you must sign the promise at the foot of this column, and make a deposit to show that in asking for the knife you are acting in good faith The deposit that I ask of you is 44 cents about half the wholesale cost ot the knife, and less than one-third what you would have to pay for a knife liko it, if you bought one. Send the money by a Postal Order or one-cent atamps for 4 Jets., and put a Qve-cent striinp on the letter, which must not veih more than one-half ounce. The deposit of 44 cents will be placed to your credit, and will be deducted from your iirst order at the dozen rate. I am an advertising agent, contractor and publisher with one of the largest Advertising businesses in the world,and absolutely guarantee to send, postage paid and duty free, the knife described Iabove free to anyone who signs the promiso below. and ends it with the deposit as stuted. Let me advise you not to part with your sample, even if you should lose a sale at $1 by refusing-, as it will take time to replace it. I could not send you another even if you sent the f uil tl. After the sample they can only be supplied to you by the dozen as there is duty on them to be paid. Any English Banker can give you information about my high standing, or write to the publisher of this paper, who knows that I do a large and straightforward advertising business. and that I do exactly as I say. I have taken this pace in this paper 'or three years ! The lirst one answerng this advertisement after this numaer of the paper has come out will, if ie likes, have his name printed in this space as agent for these knives. The Editor of the Sprinyjidd (Ohio) .Y ■■ Era writes, in his paper of June K 1S94: - "I have received a sample cnife from Mr. Sears, and am very much pleased with it. He is the owner of a verv large advortising business ii London, and is, 1 believe, perfectly esponsible and straightforward." Sign your name and address to the ollowing, cut it out and send it with Jostal Order or stamps for 44 cents, and you will receive by return of post the beautiful knife as described above. F. W.
