A BINDER GIVEN AWAY.
The most valuable feature of our tem-

strips of metal. Each strip or piece
of iron binds one number of the LAND
OWNER; so any one number can be
taken out and carried to court or else.
where, and replaced again without dis-
turbing the others. No pins or needles
being used, there is no mutilation of the
paper. See further description on third
page of cover. You can get this improved
binder FREE by sending two subscriptions
with your own ($9). A    few minutes'
canvassing among the lawyers of yopr
place will secureit.
As the LAND OWNER is issued every
two weeks, and claims to publish every
land department ruling and circular of
importance, no respectable land attorney
can possibly do justice to his clients
without it.

HON. W. A. J. SPARKS.
The newly-appointed Commissioner of
the General Land Office was born near
New Albany, Indiana, about fifty years
ago. of Virginia parents. They removed
to Illinois when he was seven years of age,
and died shortly therealter, leaving him in
destitute circnstances. Blessed with a
strong mind and excellent constitution, he -
worked by day and studied by night, until
at eighteen he was regarded by his neigh-
bors as something of a prodigy. By teach-
ing school he secured means to attend
MeKendree College, where he graduated
with honor. In 1850 he studied law under
Chief Justice Breese, and was admitted to
the bar in 1851. He was appointed Re-
ceiver at the Evansville Land Office when
only twenty years of age, and filled the
office creditably until it was closed, with
the other land offices in Illinois.
He was Presidential elector on the Dem-
ocratic State ticket in 1856, the last time
it was carried by the Democrats. He was
elected to the lower branch of the Legis.
lature, and, after serving with distinction
therein, was elected to the State Senate in
1863. He was delegate tothe Presidential
conventions of 1868 and 1884, and was
presiding officer of most of his State con-
ventions, and otherwise prominent during
the same period.
In 1814 he was elected to Congress as a
Democrat in a district regarded as Repub-
lican, and was re-elected in 1876, 1878 and
1880. In the recent apportion'ment, as the
only way of defeating him, the Republi-
cans tore his district asunder, and dis-
tributed it-among the four adjoining dis-
tricts.
During all this political labor he prac-
ticed law successfully, and had a wide rep-
utation as a jury lawyer. He is noted as
a ready speaker, and ranks high as an
orator. Through his extensive law prac-
tice and well-chosen investments, he is in
possession of a liberal fortune.
In personal appearance, the Commis-
sioner has handsome features and a large,
well-shaped lead, is fully six feet high,
and weighs above two hundred pounds.
He impresses the visitor as a man of great
mental power and rare physical ehergy
and strength. He is very courteous and
polite, and gives a patient hearing to every
comer without distinction.
Like his name-sake, Andrew .ackson, he
is noted for his great firmness of charac-
ter, and-has the reputation of being stub-
bornly honest. The land service is to be
congratulated on his appointment.
