NOTICE TO PURCHASERS


For Index see third cover page

=SINGLE COPIES.= Any printed book will be sent prepaid on receipt of the
list price. Keys and translations will be supplied to teachers only.
Transportation charges on blank books, drawing books, blanks, and
tablets will be at purchaser's expense.

=ORDERS.= Each order should be clearly written and signed by the
purchaser. It should give the post-office, county, and State, and also
indicate whether the goods are to be sent by mail, express, or freight;
and, where the name of the railroad or express station differs from that
of the post-office, it should be so stated.

=EXACT TITLES.= All orders should give the exact titles of the books as
printed in our price lists; otherwise we can not be held responsible for
errors in shipping.

=ORDER EARLY.= Orders are usually filled on the day on which they are
received, but just before the opening of schools this is not always
possible. To insure prompt delivery due allowance should be made for
unavoidable detentions and orders should be sent early.

=REMITTANCES.= Remittances by draft are preferred, but post-office money
orders or express money orders may be used, if more convenient.

=EXCHANGE.= Special terms for books desired for exchange will be made on
application. In such cases, the names of the books to be displaced as
well as those to be introduced must be given.

=MAIL, PARCEL POST AND EXPRESS.= Packages of printed books under 8 oz.
may be sent at the rate of 1c. for 2 oz. Packages between 8 oz. and 50
lbs. may be sent by Parcel Post in accordance with the new zone rates,
ascertainable at any post office. Packages of any weight may be sent by
express. In the absence of specific instructions, we will send packages
by the cheapest transportation.
