JEFFERSON'S NEWEST AND BEST MONU
MENT. Editorial i- The World, N. Y., Sept. 3, 1900:
Several monuments have been made to perpetuate
the Memory of Thomas Jefferson, but the newest
and best is this Cyclopedia. Other monuments
have preserved his physical characteristics. Here
we perceive his mind, his patriotic purpose, his
wisdom, his liberality, his toleration, his vision of
the true position of the people in states, his 'largo
discourses of reason,' in short, all the moral and
intellectual qualities that made him great."

"Tarry Thou Till I Come"
Or SalathicI, the Wandering Jew.
A HISTORICAL ROMANCE. BY GEORGE CROLY.
Introduction by Gcn Lew Wallace.
A historical novel, dealing with the momentous events that occurred,
chiefly in Palestine, from the time of the crucifixion to the destruction
of Jerusalem. It reveals the struggles between tho Romans and the
Jews, which finally ended in the overthrow and the dispersion of tho
Jewish nation, picturing forth tho conflict between Judaism and early
Christianity. The book, as a story, is replete with Oriental charm and
richness, and the character-drawing is marvolous. No other novel ever
writton has portrayed with such vividness the events that convulsed
Rome and destroyed Jerusalem in the early days of Christianity.
Exquisitely Illustrated by
T. de Thulstrup,
The brilliant Amorican Artist, with a beautiful frontispiece in colors
sixteen full page drawings, and throo illustrated bastard title pages
all by this famous artist.
