*THE ART OF MONEY MAKING.--Mr. R. POTTER, of West Springfield, Pa., who has been canvassing cities east, has had the success of delivering hundreds of copies of the above work. It is one of the best books published. It is high-toned and lively, particularly adapted to bankers, merchants, clerks, mechanics, young men,, ladies in business, and all persons supporting themselves. It teaches also the art of saving and investing money. Mr. POTTER will solicit orders in this town, and we commend him to the courtesy and patronage of our citizens, to whom the work will prove highly valuable and interesting.
