RIDPATH'S enviable position as an historian, is due to his wonderfully
beautiful style, a style no other historian has ever equalled. He pic
tures uie great Historical events as though they were happening before
your eyes; ne carries you with him to see the battles of old; to meet
Kings ana queens ana warriors: to sit in the Roman Senate; to

marcii againBt aaiaam ana his dark-skinned followers; to sail the
soutnern seas witn uraice; to circumnavigate the globe with
luugoimn; to watcn mat thin line of Greek spearmen work

to iuiuw jaajioicon as you know Kooscvclt.

T ATHERS aualify your boys and eirla for the ereat battle of life.
J? It is admitted the best foundation of an education is
to acquire the habit, of reading good books. Text to the Bible
Ridpath's History of' the World is the most valuable work you
can place in your home. It' will acquaint your children with the
great facts of history and give them the habit of reading that which
is true and ennobling instead of dime novels and trashy literature.
Ridpath 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. The day must
come, in the course of events when the chair of your boy or girl will
be empty b,y your fireside and they will be out struggling alone in
'the world. Equip them- now for the struggle by placing Ridpath's
History of the World in your home. It will repay you a thousandfold.
MOTHERS, you know, as all the world knows, that the success in
life of your boys and girls is heaven to you. There is little else
in the world worth living for. "Give your boys and girls a chance."
Give them an education which will fit them for the stern realities of
life. Teach them to love home by making the home so at
tractive that it is worth loving, Placo in your home good,
interesting, truthful books for your children. In this day
and age of fierce competition it is little short of a misfor
tune for any .boy or girl to grow up without the equipment
of a good education, and especially a knowledge of; his
tory. In the words of Lincoln, "Give your boys and girls
