THE PACIFIC MONTHLY— ADVERTISING SECTION. iii



The Pacific Monthly

Has made arrangements with the Press Publishing Association to enable
its subscribers to participate in the distribution of the $25,000.00 in prizes.

Each cash subscriber to The Pacific Monthly for one year will re-
ceive a certificate which will entitle him to a guess on the population of
the United States and Territories, and to participate in the distribution
of the prizes.

In case of a tie, or that two or more estimators are equally correct,
prizes will be divided equally between them.

This contest will close one month before the population has been
officially announced by the Director of the United States Census at Wash-
ington, D. U., and The Pacific Monthly will announce the date when the
guessing will close.

To aid subscribers in forming their estimate, we furnish the follow-
ing data:

Year Total Population . Increase Per Cent.

1780 3,000,000

1790 3,929,214 929,214 31

1800 5,308,483 1,379,269 35

1810 7,320,881 2,012,398 37

1830 12,860,020 3,221,567 83

1840 17,069,453 4,209,433 33

1880 50,155,783 11,597,412 30

1890 62,622,250 12,466,467 25

The population of 1900 at an increase of 21% over the population of

1890 would be 75,772,922; an increase of 13,150,672.
At an increase of 22% it would be 76,399,144; an increase of 13,776,894.
At an increase of 23% it would be 77,025,366; an increase of 14,403.116.
At an increase of 24% it would be 77,651,588; an increase of 15,029,338.

The

I GREATEST PREMIUM^^
^ EVER OFFERED



^



WE have been on the out-look for a premium that would be acceptable to the great
majority of our readers. This is not always an easy matter. What one may
like may be strictly opposite to the taste of another. What may be acceptable
to a gentleman is oft useless to a lady. What a boy would revel in inay be distaste-
ful to a girl. Thus in the search for a suitable premium it is very diflBcult to select
one that is acceptable to one and all alike. If it is possible to get hold of such an
article, we think we have succeeded in our selection of the noted

POST FOUNTAIN PEN.

Where is there a gentleman or a lady that would not find one useful? Show us a
boy or a girl that would not appreciate a present of one of these useful articles. Now
there are fountain pens and FOUNTAIN PKNS. A good one is a boon, while an in-
ferior article is a nuisance. The "Post" is considered one of the best if not THE BEST in
the market. It is the constant companion of some of the leading men in the country,
and the list of testimonials herewith submitted cannot be excelled. In this list will be
found leading men in Politics, Finance, Law, Religious Movements, Literary Men, Bankers
and Business Men- Men who never before allowed their names to be used in this way
have not hesitated to recommend the "Post" and in terms of praise simply unqualified.

One and all designate the "Post" as the nearest to perfection of anything yet found.
In the words of Dr. Josiah Strong, " The post leaves nothing to be desired." The testi-
monials submitted here state very clearly the many advantages of the Post Pen over
all others. It is a Self-filler and Self-cleaner, two points which carry it far ahead of all



4h




others in the market. The retail price of the "Post" is $3.00. It cannot be purchased
under this price any where. The patentee has a very hard-and-fast agreement with the
trade and agents that $3.00 shall be the minimum price at which it retails. By a spec-
cial agreement we are in a position to make

The subscription price of the Pacific Monthly
is $1.00, the Pen is $3.00. We offer three
subscriptions to the magazine for one year
and the Pen for $3.00, which is a saving to those who embrace this great opportunity
of $3.00. The Pen will be carefully packed and sent to your address, or any address
you send us, with printed directions, postpaid. Subscribe to-day. Fill in accompanied
subscription blank and forward without delay to The Pacific Monthly, Portland, Oregon.

Mbat some
people eaie
about tbe
post...




"I have tried every pen
of the kind on the market,
and nov? unhesitatingly
give the preference to the
Post. It not only feeds
itself with less care, but
has the immeasureable
advantage of re-supply
without inking the fin-
gers. I do all my work
with it."



/^ju^ ., Yy cK/J^-<^tAi\




"A perfect fountain
pen at last! I have been
hunting for it upwards
of twenty years. I have
tried many, and I can
assure you they have
tried me. I have had lit-
tle satisfaction even
irom the best, but the
Post leaves nothing to be
desired I am delighted
with it."

"The pen is all
promised I carry
fountain pens, and now
the Post makes the fifth,
and the fifth is by far the
best I have • and all are
good."





S



A recommendation from
former Governor, the late
Hon. Roswell P. Flower,
was worth a great deal'and
we value very highly the
accompanying testimon-
ial, which he sent us in his
own handwriting a short
time before his death:

"This is written with
the Post, a new fountain
pen, the simplest and best
I have ever seen."

"I have used the Post
pen for some time and
have had great satisfac-
tion with its use. It nev-
er fails or gets cranky.
Onecan at least have clean
hands by using the Post,
whatever the heart may
be."

"A fountain pen was
given me a couple of years
ago and it proved almost
like St. Paul's thorn in
the flesh, unless in con-
stant use it wouldn't go.
I never knew when it was
empty, and when I did
want to fill it I never could
find where that nipple
business was. Now tke
plunger makes the ink
come, tells me when the
pen is thirsty, and sucks
the tube full out of any
body's inkstand I happen
to be near. It is a perfect
pen."
