The well-known ability of the author in this difficult department of literature gives assurance that the forthcoming work will be of real interest and value.

THE PIONEER BOY,

and honorable career.

By VIRGINIA PENNY.

12mo. pp. 500. $1.50. This work contains five hundred and thirty-three articles, over five hundred of which are descriptions of the occupations in which women are or may be engaged; the effect of each on the health; the rate of wages paid for those carried on in the United States; a comparison in the price of male and female labor of the same kind; the length of time required to learn the business fully, and the time required to learn the part done by women; whether women are paid while learning; the qualifications needed ; the pros pect of future employment in each branch; and much other valuable information of like character. In addition are articles on unusual employments in England, France, the United States, and other countries; minor employments in the United States, England, and France.

“ Unlike most books that have been prepared for the purpose of extending the sphere of woman, Miss Penny's volume is of a thoroughly practical character. ..... The information is also well arranged; and the whole book is one of the many proofs that could be quoted of the ability of woman to engage with success in those pursuits which are supposed to be peculiarly the province of man." Boston Traveller.

PHOTOGRAPHIC AND DAGUERROTYPE

ROOMS,
No. 96 Washington St., Boston.

(UP STAIRS.)
JOHN A. WHIPPLE, PROPRIETOR.

Tais establishment (one of the oldest in the country) is supplied with all the conveniences and instruments necessary to the production of the finest and most accurate representations of persons or places.

The apartments are large and airy. The operators and artists are skilful and experienced.

Daguerrotypes, Photographs, and Stereographs

taken of overy size and in all styles.

MR. WHIPPLE gives his personal and unremitting attention at the Rooms, and will spare no pains to satisfy his customers, and no expense in receiving every improvement in apparatus or methods of operating.

The generous patronage he has received for years has so diffused specimens of his work over the country that it is unnecessary to advertise the numerous recommendations his establishment has received. It has made itself known far and wide; and its past performances are, it is believed, a sufficient guaranty of its present ability. To meet the fashion of the times, particular attention is now paid to

OARD PHOTOGRAPHS. Mr. WHIPPLE is prepared to take fac-similes of buildings and estates, in town or country, machinery, patterns, engravings, — in fact, of any objects of which there is a desire to multiply copies.

He would call special attention to his success in PHOTOGRAPHING GROUPS.
