Well! there they live—always at home-knock at their doorsENQUIRE WITHIN, NO FEES TO PAY !!

We have taken so much care in selecting our information, and have been aided by so many kind friends in the production of our volume, that we cannot turn to any page without at once being reminded of the GENEROUS FRIEND WHO ABIDES THERE.

To some extent, though in a far less degree, we have been indebted to the authors of the following useful books. In the first place we must express our chief obligations to “Dr. KITCHENER's Cook's ORACLE,” to “THE Cook," in " Houlston and Stoneman's Industrial Library;" to “ THE SHOPKEEPER’s Guide,” to “ Mrs. RUNDELL'S COOKERY,” to “ HOME TRUTIS, FOR Home Peace," and also to "THE FAMILY FRIEND,” “ TREASURES IN NEEDLEWORK," "THE PRACTICAL HOUSEWIFE,” and to “The FAMILY TREASURY.” We now invite the thousands who may “ ENQUIRE WITIIIN” to our future monthly INTERVIEW, wherein we will endeavour to supply whatever ENQUIRERS may not find by ENQUIRING WITHIN. Our INTERVIEWS will be varied, genial, and entirely original in their arrangement. The pleasure of your company is earnestly solicited.
