IT WILL PAY THE FARMER. We give you Forms for Deeds, Mortgages, Satisfaction of Mortgagos, Bills of Sale, Cultivation of Land, Sale of Animals with Warranty, Home. stead and other Exemptions, Instructions for obtaining Public Lands of the government, and numerous other forms and information which might be as important to a farmer as his plough.

IT WILL PAY THE MECHANIC. Turn to the Lien Laws for the benefit of mechanics, Liabilities of Minors, Indentures for an Apprentice, Articles of Partnership, forms and rules prescribed for securing Patents, Contracts, Assignments: the index will exhibit other subjects equally useful to you.

IT WILL PAY THE EMIGRANT. We give you the Laws and Forms regulating Naturalization, Right of settling on United States Public Land, Homestead and other Property Exempt from Sale for Debts in the different States, Rates of Postage to Foreign Countries, Value of Gold and Silver Coins, besides business forms, &c.

IT WILL PAY Every Man. Look at the array of subjects already mentioned, besides Forms for holding Property in Trust, Promissory Notes, Compounding with Creditors, Landlord and Tenant's Agreements, Rights of Married Women, Dower, Rights to Military Bounty Land, Interest Tables, &c., together with another item giving great interest to this work, being a well-delineated MAP OF EACH STATE IN THE UNION, AND A MAP OF THE U.S. which Maps alone are worth three times what is asked for the whole work.

The special State Laws have been compiled at great labor and expense, from the latest statutes of the various States, so far as they could be reached, and will be found more complete and reliable than anything now beforethe public.

If we have now made it plain that it will be a valuable book to you, we ask you to buy it, not simply to promote our interest, but because we give you in return that information which every man ought to have at his command.
