RmPATH takes you .back to the dawn of history, long before the
pyramids of JEgypt were built; down through the romantic
troubled times of Chaldea's grandeur and Assyria's magnificence; of
Babylonia's wealth and luxury; of Grecian and Roman splendor; of
Mohammedan culture and refinement; of French eleganceand British
power; of American patriotism and religious freedom, to the dawn of
yesterday. He covers every race, every nation, every time, and holds
you spellbound by his wonderful eloquence. Nothing more interesting,
absorbing and inspiring was ever written by man.
RIDPATH throws the mantle of personality over the old heroes of his
tory. Alexander is there; patriot, warrior statesman, diplomat,
crowning the glory of Grecian history. Xerxes, from his mountain
platform, sees Themistoclcs with three hundred and fifty Greek ships
smash his Persian, fleet of over a thousand sail, and help to mould the
language in which this paragraph is written. Rome perches Nero upon
the greatest throne on earth, and so sets up a poor madman's name to
stand for countless centuries as the synonym of savage cruelty; Napo

before the iron fact that at last the end of his gilded dream
has come. Bismarck is there, gruff, overbearing, a giant
pugilist in the diplomatic ring, laughing with grim disdain
at France, which says, "You shall not." Washington is
there, four-square to all the winds," grave, thoughtful,
proof against the wiles of British strategy and the poisoned
darts of false, friends; clear-seeing over tho heads of his"
fellow-countrymen, and on into another Century, the most
colossal world-figure of his time.
