James chalks the above figures on the
board, and explains the peculiar result as
"The folks over to the CITIZEN - office
said if I'd give 'em $3.00 they'd send me
the value of $1.50 plus $2.40, an' dad an' I
decided to do it."
James was a wise boy, He learned that
$3.00 was the clubbing price at which he
could get the CITIZEN for the family and
"Wide Awake" for himself and the girls;
both for a whole year. Our readers should
know that "Wide Awake" is the famous
Boston magazine for young people (100
pages every month) and costs $2.40 alone.
But with our usual enterprise we have
arranged to offer that magazine and the
CITIZEN for a while, for $3.00. The CITIZEN
will take care of all orders, and show any
one the magazine.
