PREFACE

BIS little work is intended as a safe and trustworthy

The innumerable points of law and valuable business belps and hints it contains are not scattered bapbazardly through the work, but are all arrangod systematically, under appropriate headings, with index commencement words printed in bold. faced type, so that the eye of the reader catches the particulas information wanted immediately.

Besides its legal and practical business information, the work contains: 1-A comprehensive symposium on Finance, Credit and Commercial Exchange, Trade and Speculation. The principles underlying business success. How to advertise, and how to Invest Small Savings Successfully. 2—The Parcels Post System of the United States with Rates and Chart. Easy Lessons in Penmanship, Bookkeeping and Letter Writing. 3-The latest census tables, interest, limitation and exemption laws of all the States, and a large amount of statistical information that cannot be found in any other publication. 4. Tables for rapid computation and ready information, constructed so simply that they can be easily understood and practically used by every one having the slightest knowledge of figures. 5. A miscellaneous collection of useful information pertaining to all the business and social relations of

life.

Altogether it forms not only an almost indispensable safe counselor and guide for the business man, but also a convenient volume of general reference that is of incalculable value to every citizen.
