We take pleasure in calling your attention to several styles of our ERASABLE TABLETS,

designed especially for use in the School-room

ERASABLE LEAF TABLET.

$1.00 per dozen.

This is a single leaf of our board, about the size of a commercial note sheet, and is designed for the school-room. By using it in place of the slate, all the noise caused by the latter will be avoided. Scholars will find them invaluable for noting down such things as are desirable in the preparation of home lessons ;” and, being about the size of a common school-book, can readily be placed between the leaves, and carried home.

PAYSON'S ERASABLE SPELLING TABLET.

$ 1.20 per dozen.

This is designed expressly for pupils who write their spelling lessons. It is ruled in double columns, one for spelling, the other for correcting the misspelled words. Those who use blank books for writing their spelling exercises, will find the SPELLING TABLET much more ECONOMI. CAL.

PAYSON'S ERASABLE ARITHMETICAL TABLET.

Price $8 per dozen.

This we regard as one of the most valuable Aids, to the teacher, that has ever been presented to the public. With it the teacher can accomplish, in ten minutes, more than he can in an hour by the ordinary method, by the use of the slate. He can assign a separate example to each pupil in his class in less time than he can dictate a single example for slate practice, and can detect every error by a glance at the Ker. This last (price 50 cents) is a book of 65 pages, containing the answers to nearly 3,000 examples in the four fundamental rules of arithmetic.

SCHOOL TABLETS. Two Sizes.

(EDGES NEATLY BOUND WITH MUSLIN.) 5x7 INCHES, . . . $2.00 per doz. | 6X9 INCHES, . . . $3.00 per doz.

These are for use in school, instead of the ordinary slate; and, such is their excellence, that, wherever they are once used, nothing will induce the pupils to return to the old stone slate.

FOLIO TABLETS. Two Sizes. 5 X 7 INCHES, . . . $3.75 per doz. 1 7 X 9 INCHES, . . . $5.00 per doz.

These are designed for school use, and are especially adapted for young ladies. They are Deatly bound in fine muslin, and are very firm and durable,

All the above Tablets are manufactured from the best Bristol Board; and are in every respect EQUAL, and in some respects SUPERIOR, to ivory plates. We can refer to a number of schools where the Tablet has been in use for nearly a year, in all cases giving perfect satisfaction.

All of our Tablets are coated with a transparent water-proof composition (for which Letters Patent was granted Oct. 24, 1865, and Aug. 7, 1866). An ordinary lead pencil should be used, and the marks erased with a piece of damp woolen cloth. For the school-room, they are considered by teachers, who are using them, as indispensable.

We will mail samples for examination at the following prices (postage paid):

READ WHAT THE PAPERS SAY: It already excels every child's paper that we know of in this country.- Chicago Even. Journ.

THE LITTLE CORPORAL.-The Pittsburgh Christian Advocate says: “The best paper for children, published in this great country of ours, is The Little Corporal. It is a gem in the cata. logue of monthlies.”

Forney's Philadelphia Daily Press says of it: The Little Corporal is destined to become the great children's paper of America."

"It is, without doubt, the best and cheapest children's gazette published anywhere."--Marshall (Mich.) Statesman.

The Little Corporal.—Though modestly calling itself by a subordinate title, it is really a very Major General among the children's magazines.-Chenango Telegraph. (Norwich, N.Y.)

The most interesting and instructive monthly in the Union.-Louisville Democrat. Universally admitted to be the best juvenile paper now in existence.-Dubuque Daily Times.

It strikes the right key, and is admirable-neither heavy nor silly, but simple, fresh, buoyant, and earnest.-Adams' (N. Y.) Visitor.

Its influence for good can never be estimated.-Grand Haven News.

Indeed, there is no paper of the kind published that approaches it as a juvenile journal. - Poughkeepsie Daily Press.

It is the cleverest thing of its kind yet realized in America.Ro.cbury (Mass.) Journal. The Little Corporal. Certainly we have seen nothing in the shape of a child's paper which could compare with this which comes to us from over the prairies.- Portland (Me.) Daily Press.

The Little Corporal is conducted with a great deal of tact, taste, and care. Either this paper or Our Young Folks—and it would be hard to choose between them-would prove a welcome present for the children. The Nation.

It should be in every household.-N. Y. Teacher.
It is now, as it has been, the child's magazine of the country.- Norwich (N.Y.) Telegraph.
The brave, beautiful, and good Little Corporal conquers all.- Vermont State Journal.

It is a gem. Chaste, elegant and excellent in its every department.-- Lancaster (Pa.) Repub.

After a careful examination, we can cheerfully say of The Little Corporal that it deserves all the praise that has been lavished upon it by the press everywhere.-- Philadel. Episcopal Recorder.

The above are only a tithe of the many beautiful notices our young soldier has received. Address ALFRED L. SEWELL, Care of Dunlop, Sewell & Spalding,
