MANUFACTORIES AND WORKSHOPS, AND THE BEST MEANS AND APPLI-
ANCES FOR PREVENTING AND AVOIDING THEM. By GEORGE H. IRELAND,
Springfield, Mass. Prize,

$200

That these essays may be placed in the hands of every family in the country is the earnest desire of the association, as well as the heartfelt wish of the public-spirited and philanthropic citizen whose unpretentious generosity and unselfish devotion to the interests of humanity have given us these essays, but the financial inability of the association renders it impossible to distribute them gratuitously;-therefore a price covering the cost has been placed upon these publications. It is to be hoped, however, that government departments, state and local boards of health, sanitary and benevolent associations, etc., will either publish these essays. or purchase editions at cost of the association, for distribution among the people.

Although a copyright has been placed upon these essays for legitimate protection, permission to publish, under certain conditions, can be obtained by addressing the secretary.
