GREAT PREMIUM. WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED FREE, Last year THE TRIBUNE offered to five years' single subscribers the unprecedented gift of WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED QUARTO PICTORIAL DICTIONARY, which retails in all bookstores for $12. The offer proved probably the greatest success in the history of newspaper premiums. TEN THOUSAND of theso nuge Dictionaries were aliserijuted, and not one single subscriber complained that he was dissatistied with his pre. miun. We have at last su ceeded in renewing the very favorable contract with the poblishers (which alone enabled us to offer this magnificent premium), until April 1, 1879. The pubiishers positively refuse to let it extend beyond that tim. We therefore urge all to avail theurselves of the offer at once, and to advise their friends and neighbors of the oppor tv. We are extending the terms of the offer, this year, a litele, as follows:

We will sena Webster': Unabridged Pictorial Quarto Dictionary (edition of 1879), bound in sheep, the latest and best edition, as a gift to any one remitting us $10 tor :1 singletiva, years'subscription, in advance,{THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE. $15 for a singl five years' subscription, in advance, or, $20 for ten one-year subscriptions to

{THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE. $30 for a slugle three years' subscription, in ad.}THE DAILY TRIBUNE.

We believe this to be the most valuable and liberal newspaper premium ever offered. We cannot make it any more liberal, and to avoid useless correspondence we give notice that the Dictionary will only be sent on exact compliance with the above terms. It is not offerer, under any circumstances, to persons remitting for clubs at regalar club rates.


A $210


THE TRIBUNE makes an offer to churches, musical societies and others, more amazing thau anything yet done in the history of newspaper premiums. For 200 subscriprione from one Post Office, or its immediate vicinity, to THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE, at the lowest club rate (*195 each), we will send, postage paid, the 200 papers, augressed to in. dividual subscribers, for one year, and will send also to the church or person forwardios the club the $210 Estry Organ, confessediy one of the best in the market-s'yie 0:01, ciouble reed. seven stops, viz.: diapason, melodia, viola, vox Jubilants, tremolo, 1 forte and 11 forte. Thus, for 200 subscriptions to THE WEEKLY TRIBUN'E at the lowest clale rate, the club receives $250 in newspapers, and $2101n one of the finest organe of its sizu made in America.

In the year 1880 there will be sis eclipses, four of the Sun and two of tho Moon :

1. A Total Eclipse of the Sun, January 11, invisible in this country except along the Pacific coast and the region of the Rocky Mountains, where the sun will be more or less partially eclipsed just before sunset. The central path of the eclipse begins near the La. drone Islands, curves southward till it almost touches the Equator, and then runs in a northeasterly direction, passing south of Honolulu, and reaching the Pacific coast of the United States, near San Francisco, where the eclipse begins at 2:41 p. m, and ends a fow minutes before sunset.

II. A Total Eclipse of the Moon, June 22, invisible here.

III. An Annular Eclipse of the Sun, July 7, invisible in America. It will be seen as a partial eclipse in a large part of South America. the South Atlantic Ocean and the Capo of Good Hope. The central line, along which only the eclipse will be annular, begins near the Falkland Islands, and follows a sharp curved path wholly confined to the higher lati. tudes of the South Atlantic.

IV. A Partial Eclipse of the Sun, December 1, invisible here.

V. A Total Eclipse of the Moon, December 16, visible only on the Pacific coast be. fore the Moon sets. At San Francisco the eclipse begins at 5:35 a. m. and is total at 6:44 a. n., the Moon setting at 7:14 a. m., totally eclipsed.

VI. A Partial Eclipse of the Sun, December 31, visible in the eastern parts of the United States at sunrise, and for a short time afterward as follows, the beginning of the eclipse being invisible at the places named, because taking place before sunrise :

There will be an occultation of Mars by the Moon on March 17 (St. Patrick's Day). At Washington the immersion occurs at 6:22 p. m. and the emersion at 7:38 p. m, the occul. tation lasting 1 hour 16 minutes. At New York the immersion will take place about 15 minutes later. The Moon being then between six and seven days old, the planet will disappear behind its dark edge at an angle of about 90° east, by direct vision, from the north point of a perpendicular line passing through the centre of the Moon. Owing to the great dis. tance of Mars from tho Earth, however, the planet will not be conspicuous, and the occultation will, therefore, be much less striking than if Mars were near its opposition.
