city. With us you save the jobbers', dealers' and agents' profits, also freight and expenses.
Our terms are cash, if you can spare it; time, if you want it.

Averag'e Circulation 190,000.

^ »? »? 1?



FOR nearly a quarter of a century Thk Record has had the
remarkable good fortune to go steadily forward in a career of
undeviating prosperity. In good years and bad years, and
under circumstances of peculiar peril, it has steadily kept the good
will of its constituency and broadened its field of influence.

It will continue to build and to spread itself upon the founda-
tion of independence, truthfulness and decency it has already
established, so as not only to keep its place but deserve to keep it.

j^ j^ jS/

THE RECORD especially appeals to business men bec£.use of
the completeness of its financial and trade news. Its market
reports have achieved such a reputation among business men for
fullness and accuracy as to make its quotations the standard for
buying and selling.

The circulation of The Record in all parts of Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland makes it the best advertising,
medium in those States, and there is no part of the country in
which it does not have readers. It has rivals, but no equals in
affording to the advertiser the largest measure of publicity.



THE RECORD is printed every day in the year, and sent, post-
age free, to all parts of the United States, Canada and Mexico
for Four Dollars per year, payable in advance ; or for Three Dollars
per year, or Twenty-five Cents per month, without the Sunday issue.
To subscribers in Philadelphia or its suburbs The Record is
delivered at Eight Cents per week, or without the Sunday paper at
Six Cents per week — payable to the carrier.
