THE FLYER RAILROAD TRAIN-New. 

f 1 — The most elegant and elaborate toy which we have presented to the public. It consists of 
a locomotive, tender and passenger coach, decorated in gilt and natural colors. The locomo- 
tive and tender together are twenty-six inches long, and are the most perfect model of a first- 
ciass American passenger engine ever made as a toy. The car is eighteen inches long, and 
represents a first-class Drawing Room Car, in natural colors, with the passengers at the 
windows. The whole train is about forty-five inches long when shackled up. 

The above cut is engraved directly from a photograph from the toy, and represents 
accurately the proportions and construction of the several parts. Every thing represented 
in the cut appears on the toy exactly as shown Price, $18 00 per dozen. 




THE EXCURSION STEAMBOAT-New. 

2 — This is the largest single toy we have ever made, it being twenty-four inches long, five 
inches wide, and nine and one-half inches high to top of smoke-stack. 

There are two tiers of cabins ; the decks are supported by posts, and the netting 
encircling the decks is represented in a neat and durable style. 

When the boat is drawn over the floor the walking-beam works up and down in a natural 
manner. The whole is beautifully finished in natural colors, and makes a very large and 
elegant toy for the price at which it is sold Price, $9 00 per dozen. 



THE TEXAS RANCH 



New. 

3 — A simple and pleasing 
combination toy with a 
cabin, men, horses, cattle, 
emigrant wagon, trees, 
fences, etc. The emigrant 
wagon is a most ingenious 
little toy in itself, with the 
oxen which may be yoked 

mto it. Also the horseback 
rider is made in such a 
manner that he may be 
placed on and removed 
from his horse at pleasure. 
A very desirable toy for the low price at which it is sold Price, $2 50 per dozen.

tures, ranging in size from 2^x3^ to 5x7^. Price, per 100, |3 00. A sample lot of 35 different

GRAND RAILROAD MENAGERIE SHOW. 

3a. A .complete anenagerie traveling by railroad. The toy in one f()im is a locomotive, ten- 
der, and train of four cars, representing the cages of a menagerie. The parts of the cars and 
locomotive, can be put together and taken apart at pleasure, and a great number of«0ther orig- 
inal combinations may be made, such as platform cars, wagons, carts, and representations 
of chariots, steam fire-engines, etc., etc. In fact the combinations are unlimited — all the parts 
are held in place by friction. The whole is put uj^in a bos; representing a Railway Station, 
and forms a toy which NEVER TIRES. The toy is put up in two forms. 

THE No. 1 TRAIN is in the depot box, but the decoration of the building and the cars 
are printed directly on the wood — the depot is varnished. Price, $9.00 per doz. 

THE No. 2 TRAIN is in a neat hinged box, varnished, and contains one-half as many 
parts as No. 1, and in same ^tvle. Price, $4.50 per dozen.

THE AGRICULTURAL FAIR.— NEW. 

Sb. This toy is a minature Agricultural Fair, with building, sheds, pens, race course, judge's 
stand, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, wagons, carts, ice cream tent, oyster stand. Punch and Judy 
show, etc., etc. 

The box containing the toy is in the form of an Agricultural Fair Building, 12 inches 
long. 'The decorations are very neat, and in some instances somewhat comical, representing 
the scenes often witnessed at such times. 

In this and others of our toys we introduce our superior style of animals, which for sym- 
metrical form and neatness of construction have never been approached in this country. In 
fact, no other cheap toy animals ever made have had the natural and life-like outline which 
are found in ours. Price, |9.00 per dozen.

CRANDALL'S BRIDGE. 




4^ — This beautifql, toy svpplies a want 
long felt and expresseii by boUi parents and 
children. The building of tte Bridge, which 



20 1879— Oataloglte and Frice List op CrA'MEfe and Novklties.— 1880. 



consists of ocer 120 pieces, affords a pleasure 
which is much increased by the fact that 
something is to be made — a specific object in 
view. It teaches the most prominent points 
which Architects must consider in building 
the immense structures tlial span our broad 
rivers, viz. : 1st, the Pier ; 2d, the Posts ; 
3d, the Stringers ; 4th, the Approaches ; 5th, 
the Braces ; 6th, the Floors ; and, 7th, Orna- 
mentation, etc. The building of this beauti- 
ful miniature Bridge requires the observance 
of all these points as truly as does the build- 
ing of the large and structures referred to. 
The various parts are'sb ^impl^,' and plainly 
suggest their places and Uses, that the illus-' 
trated chart given with each set i^ all thajt i^ 
necessary. Besides the Bridge, many hew 
and attraCliye designs can be made from t^e 
detached 'pieces, which will readily be dis- 
covered by the ingenious boy or girl who be- 
comes the fO'rtunate possessor of this set;

universal opinion is they are ^"Perfectly

tq the pressed leaves and ferns, in. that they 
being made of cloth and wire, are more dur- 
able, can be cleansed when soiled, arranged 
more gracefully, and will last for years. The

Mm'i PateDl Pencil HolfliDS Noiseless Slate. 

Half the noise in tlae School Room is produced by rattling 
slates. This is all remedied by using the Andreics' Slates. They 
will not rattle in their frames, and the frames will not rattle on the 
desks. If the slate is dropped, it is iwt broken and the noise is muf- 
fled and slight. 

We offer Andrew's Slates as the best School Slates ever put upon 
the market. They are an A 1 quality of slate, cemented into solid 
hard wood frames, the corners mortised, tenoned, and carefully 
glued together, surrounded by strong felted or corded bands glued 
I and nailed on, which project beyond the surface of the frame, and 
render the Slate noiseless if dropped. In one side of the frames is 
a deep cavity inclosing a strong spring, which receives and retains 
the pencil when not in use.

Ttie Bonanza Money Holder. 

An article for carrying smal,, pieces oj coin in a 
compact form in tJie porkei. 




The inconvenience of carrying a lot of 
small change loose in the pocket is known by 
everybody. It is difficult to find a five cent 
nickel or a ten cent piece without diving into 
your pocket three or four times, and then 
you are obliged to pull out everything, very 
often dropping two or three pieces of money 
before finding what you want. I^p",i ■* 

The Bonanza' Money Holder is a small 
nickel-plated Tube, which holds the coin in a 
compact form, registering the amount of cash 
on hand, and is always ready. It is worked 
by a spring on the, inside, which presses the 
coin to each end. By a| slight pressure of 
the thumb on the top, you can slip a piece off 
into your hand, and another appears in.|its 
pli^ce. Every time a coin is taken off the 
gauge raises one notch,, ancj indjcates , the 
number left. This can tie done as fast as you 
can count. It, is an article that ever^^body 
needs and will have wh^n tjiey se,e how 
handy and cony^nji^nt. it is to cany in the 
pocket.

THE DANOma SKELETON. 

695— A jointed 
figure of a skele- 
ton, 14 incht-s in 
height, will dance 
to music, slow or 
fast, keeping ex- 
act time, and per- 
forms various gy- 
rations and move- 
ments, while the 
operator may be at 
any distance from 
it. The figure 
may be examined 
by the spectators, 
who cannot dis- 
cover the motive power. Wiieii iiiiudci u .ck 
to the operator, it is simply placed upon a 
chair, when it seemingly beconn's endowed 
with life, and begins to move. At the com- 
mand of the operator, who may be in any 
part of the room, it will lie dpwn, stand up, 
dance, etc. , ; . , 

For exhibitiou in'the parlor, before social 
gatherings, or for public exhibition in the 
school or lecture room, there is nothing more 
acceptable. It never fails to create a sensa- 
tion, and is so substantial as to last for years. 

We send full and explicit directions with 
each Skeleton, by the aid of which any (me 
can readily make it perform, to the astonish, 
ment of their friends or the publjci

Th3 Enchanted Bottle. 

697 — A wonderful 
conjuring trick, very 
simple to perform, and 
very astonishing in its 
results. It consists of 
a small bottle which

to an erect position, 
when laid down by 
any member o f t h e 
company, but the per-

fools around it much will find this out to his 
sorrow. It is to all appearance a harmless 
and ornamental box, but in sliding back the 
lid, a Toy Snake is liberated, which springs 
forwatd' and gives the finger a sharp prick 
with a pin, much to the discomfiture of the 
victim and the unbounded delight of the 
spectator. Black walnut box, very neat.

of the above cut. Price, $3 00 per dozen.

The O^'iental Ball Trick. 

700— The won- 
derful Obedient 
Ball, or Oriental 
Bdl Trick, is 
made from a pe- 
culiar solid, hard 
wood, and its 
brilliant color 
gives it a very at- 
tractive appear- 
ance. Its action 
is a Ways as sure 
as fate. At the 
word of the per- 
former, it moves 
either fast or 
slow on the 
string, and stops 
suddenly at word 

-J I .of command. 

•>!i.l. It ha-< an excit- 
ing feature about 
it which is often of great utility to the per- 
former. Should an outsider desire to try the 
trick, the performer without hesitation gives 
it into his hands. The novice puts the ball 
ih position, and, with a' look of gratified 
triumph, prepares to manipulate it, when lo ! 
the ball descends with a crash upon the toes 
of the now agonized aspirant, who drops the 
apparatus in disgust, and limps painfully 
away, amid the boisterous laughter of the 
audience. ' Price, $2 GO per dozen. 

Samples mailed, post paid, on receipt of 2.5c. 

THE WEDDlNMINfi BOX PUZZLE,

and yet something is heard to rattle 
^ inside. This is the wedding-ring,

abstracting it may keep it; but, 
great as her desire will be, she will 
find all her endeavors useless, and 
yet the performer takes it out in a second. 

Price, $1 75 per dozen. 
<j(>^ Samples mailed, post-paid, 20c.

der and amusement to 
everybody. Astonish 
and delight old and 
young. The eggs are

white pea, but place one 
on a plate and set fire to 
it, when — marvelous to 
behold ! — a serpent h 
yard long uncoils itself 
from the burning egg. 
The snake may after- 
wards be kept as a won- 
derful curiosity. '

Tie BloMott Gjroscop Top. 

The Greatest Wonder of the Age. 

Weight Suspendei In the Air hy an Unknown Law, 
None of the Scientists can Explain 





Why this little Top will maintain any angle 
between the horizontal and the perpendicular 
without any support. It will make a semi- 

^ transparent globe, if placed on the round 
screw-head on a smooth surface, like a plate, 
glass or marble; will walk a string or gyrate 
about the top of a wooden pedestal, if placed 
at an angle; and it will spin for some minutes 
in any position shown in the cut above, and 

- a multitude of others.

A NEW ARTICLE FOR ORNAMENTAL PURPOSES. 











747 — We give above a few cuts of Ornamental Work made with our Honey-Comb Spirals. 
The Spirals are delicate shavings of wood in various colors, which can easily be made into 

BASKETS, BOXES, SCREENS, FRAMES, WALL POCKETS, 

and other articles of utility and ornament too numerous to mention. 

As the cost of the material is trifling, and the process of construction simple^ it will afford 
old and young pleasing employment. Instructions and diagrams of some of the articles 
which can be made. 

These goods will work up into far handsomer articles than the common spliijts, and will 
take the place of the splints which have now so large and extended a sale. 

They come in all shades: plain White, or assorted Red- White, Blue-White, Pink-White, 
Green- White, Purple-White and Yellow- White. 

These goods are put up 350 Spirals in bunch, 20 bunches in pasteboard box, 20 pasteboard 
boxes in wood case. 

Prices of White, 5 cents per bunch, (250 Spirals.) Prices of White, 85 cents per box of 20 
bunches. Prices of Colored, 8 cents per bunch, (250 Spirals.) Prices of Colored, (assorted 
colors in boxes,) |1 40 per box of 20 bunches. 

Sample bunches mailed, post-paid, on receipt of price and 5 cents extra to cover postage. 

As far as may be possible, order in full even boxes, as the goods pack and ship much 
better when put up in original packages. 

Cotton Covered Wire, used for shaping Spiral Fancy Work. Price, 5 cents per coil of 5 
yards. 

Dealers handling Spirals will find it very convenient and largely increase their sales by 
having samples of the goods made. We oiler samples of the following Ornaments which are 
very pretty :
