IMPORTANT TO EVERYBODY.
OR the last three years I have been engaged
in a business known only to myself, and,
comparatively, few others, whom I have instruc
ted for the sum of $2OO each, which averaged
me at the rate of $2,000 to $3,000 per itnntun
and having made arrangements to go to Europe
in the fall of 1857 to engage in the same bust
ness, I am willing to give full instructions in the
art to any person in the United States or Cane
dos, who will remit me the sum of $l. lam
induced, from the success I have been favored
with, and the many thankful acknowledgements
I have received from those whom I have instruc
ted, and who are making from $5 to $l5 per
day at it, to give any person an opportunity to
engage in this business, which is easy, pleasant,
and very profitable, at a small cost. There is
positively No 11.113c0 in the matter. Referen
ces of the best class can he given as regards its
character, and I can refer to persons whom I
have instructed, who will testify that they are
making from $5 to $l6 per day at the same. It
is a business in which either ladies or gentlemen
can engage, and with perfect ease snake a very
handsome income. Several Ltules in various
parts of New York State, Pennsylvania and
Maryland, whom I have instructed are now ma
king from $3 to $6 per day at it. It is a gene
ral business, and hut a few shillings is required
to start it. Upon receipt of $l, I will immedi
ately send to the applicant a printed circular con
taining full instructions in the art which can he
perfectly understood at once.
All letters must be addressed (post-paid) to

have got a new article, from which from five to

male or female. It is highly respectable bust.
ness, and an article which is wanted in every
family in the United States. Enclose me two
dollars by mail, at my risk, and I will forward
by return mail a Circular, with full instructions
in the art. The business is very easy. 'Try it,
if you are out of employment, and you will ne

the above sum, and insure a good business,
than to pay twenty•five cents for a spurious ad

DWIGHT MONROE, New York.
I sent one of my circulars to an Editor iu
and he gave me a notice in his paper
like the following:
"Mr. Monroe'sent me one of his Circulars,
and I will just say to my readers that whoever
of you are out of employment that Mr. Monroe's
business is a good business, and money can be
made out of it by any ono who engages in it,
for it is no humbug."
