This Company is formed to acquire, work, and ex- tend, both at home and abroad, the successful and valuable business and rights of Ma.ypole Soap, and provide adequate working capital to cope with its marvellous growth. Maypole Soap may be said to be unique, and ts a proved success, it being a greater novelty than the majority of Soaps upon the market. It not only washes and thoroughly (-Ieanses the fabric, but also simultaneously and permanently dyes the same almost any desired colour or tint. The word Maypole" has been registered as part of trade mark, or applied for in nearly every civilised eountry, both in respect of Soap and other kindred Articles, and is daily becoming more valuable, and bids fair to be soon world renowned. Maypole Soap was practically only put upon the ■arket in January last, the advertising, which has been on a moderate scale, commencing towards the end of that month the result has been a phenomenal and striking success, the demand largely increasing month by month, showing already upon present Sales and Contracts (as per Messrs Izard and Izard's Report) profits at the rate of no less than £ 27,058 per annum, without allowing for any increased sale, and this Wonld be sufficient to pay dividends on 50,000 Cumulative Preference Shares at 7 per cent £5,500 160,000 Ordinary Shares at 12 per cent. £18,000 Rel,500 waving £5,558 as a margin for Administration Ex- penses, Reserves, etc., &c. jyjAYPOLE SOAP, J^JAYPOLE SOAP, MAYPOLE SOAP.

The minimum quantities specified km the Contracts already entered into will, when the Contracts are fully operative, amount to 6,990 dozen yer week.

Wo also find that upwards ef 50 per cent, of the 1 present orders are repeat orders, and that the trade is an the increase. j Taking, therefore, the net profits as per the fore- going certificate at £ 27,058 per annum (sufficient to j pay the Preference Dividend nearly eight times over), and without making allowance for any increase, I although the Colonial and Foreign Trade is quite in its Infancy, the directors have every reason to believe that the profits will be amply sufficient to pay the J above-mentioned dividends of 7 per cent. on the Pre- ference Shares and 12 per cent, on the Ordinary Shares < while a further large increase in the present rapid ] growth of the business is anticipated forthwith, owing j Jo the fact that since the above results were obtained, Maypole Soap, which has hitherto only been recom- I Bended for dyeing Silk, Satin, and Cotton Goods, Ac., tit now made to dye Wool, or Mixtures of Cotton and J Wool.

COWLEY, 32, Carmelite-street, London. E.C. PROSPECTUS. The Company is formed for the purpose of purchasing and carrying on the well-known and highly successful Evening Nemspaper the Evening News." The Evening News was first published in the year 1831, and a large sum of money. exceeding (it is believed) 2180,000, was expended by the original and subsequent owners in the establishment of it. In the voar 1894 Mr Alfred Harms worth with others purchased the "Evening News" from the then pro- prietors at the time of purchase the paper had acquired a large circulation, and by the energy dis. played in the management since it has become the most largely circulated of any Evening Newspaper and one of the most successful Newspapers published in the United Kingdom. The net sales of the paper, after deducting returns, for the first year of the Vendors' ownership was 40,532,000, for the second year it was 51,358,000 copies, and the sales for the months of September, October, and November, the first months of the third year, show an increase of 327,125 copies over the corresponding period of last year. The Company will acquite the leasehold premises in Whitefriars-street, the goodwill of the Newspaper, the complete and extensive printing plant employed in the production of it ia plant which is claimed to be the most modern and complete of its character in the United Kingdom), and the stock and book debts of the Vendor Company as on the 1st September, 1896. The business will be taken over as a going concern as from the 1st September, 1295, the Company paying intorest at 5 per cent. per annum upon the purchase money from that date until the ompletion of the purchase. The purchase will include the stock of paper, book debts, and other commercial assets at las September last. It is considered that a sufficient working capital will thereby be provided, but, in view of the increasing circulation, a sum of £10,000 will be provided out of this issue for meeting the requirements of the further extension of the business. The newspaper will be conducted under the present management, which has proved so successful. It is univeis illy known that an established Daily Newspaper, with a large and increasing circulation, constitutes one of the safest and most lucrative invest- ments in the commercial world. The books of the Vendor Company have been audited from the commencement of its operations, namely, the 1st day of September, 1894, by Messrs Deloitte, Dever, Griffiths and Co., and they have given the following certificate 4, Lothbury, London, E.C., 10th November, 1896. To the Directors of the Evening News," Limited. We have acted as Auditors of the Evening News for some time nast, and have regularly prepared the Balance Sheets and Profit and Loss Accounts, and we beg to certify that, during the two years' ownership of the Paper by you the profits have been as under For the year ending 31st August 1895 1:14,018 0 0 „ to 1896. 225 357 0 0 These profits are arrived at after providing for depreciation of Plant and Machinery, but before charging Interest, Income Tax, or Directors' Fees. The net sales of the Paper, after deducting returns, were 40,532,000 copies in the first year, and 51.358,000 copies in the second year. DELOITTE, DEVER, GRIFFITHS & Co., Chartered Accountants. The above figures show that the profits have amounted during the last financial year to £ 25,357, thus being more than four times the amount required to pay the Preference Dividend. The Preference Shares now offered for subscription are Cumulative as to Dividend and Preferential as to Capital, and it is provided by the Articles of Associa- tion that no Debentures or Debenture Stock can be created without the consent of a three-fourths majority of the holders present in person or by proxy at a meeting specially summoned. The Preference Shares will theiefore practically be a first charge upon one of the most successful and progressive Newspaper businesses in the United Kingdom. The holders of Preference Shares will not be entitled to vote at General Meetings of the Company unless the Preference Dividend shall not have been paid, or unless a matter directly affecting their interests as against any other claes of Shareholders or in respect of any proposed Debenture issue be under discussion. Mr Kennedy Jones will continue to act as Editor and Managing Director for eight years from the incorporation of the Company without remuneration, he being satisfied with the profit anticipated to be received by him as a. large holder of Ordinary Shares. The other Directors have also agreed to act without remuneration. The purchase price has been fixed by the present Owners of the business, who are the only Promoters, at 2240,000, of which Z115,000 will be paid in cash, and the balance by the allotment of the whole of the Ordinary Shares credited as fully paid up. The following Contracts have been entered into, dated 8th December, 1896 (1.) Between The Even- ing News," Limited (the old Company), and Harold S. Hamsworth, its Liquidator, of the one part and The Evening News," Limited, of the other part. (2.) Between Kennedy Jones of the one part and The Evening News," Limited, of the other part. The Company acquires the benefit of the existing Contracts entered into by the Vendor Company in the ordinary course of its business, which are too numerous to specify. Subscribers will therefore be deemed fo waive the insertion of the dates aud names of parties to such Contracts and any further compliance with Section 38 of the Companies Act, 1867, than herein appearing, and applications for Shares will only be entertained on that footing. The Vendor Company (which is the only Promoter) will pay all expenses relating to the formation of the Company up to the allotment of Preference Shares, and accordingly has entered into arrangements or con. tracts with various persons, and the waiver mentioned in the last clause must be deemed to apply to such arrangements and contracts. Copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Associa- tion of the Company, the above-mentioned Contract, and the Auditors Certificate may be seen at the Offices of the Solicitors of the Company. Application will in due course be made to the Corn. mittee of the Stock Exchange to grant a settlement and quotation.

The one mile Tandem Cham- pionship of the World was also won on a Raglan Tandem.
