had recovered entirely from the effects
of his trip Into the South American Inn
Kits. Fle da vii at SKamor Hill have
brought hack Ills full measure of strength
find chased away the line which fur
rowed his face when he returned.
As he. sat on the broad veranda of his
home on the crown of the hill today,
looking over tha tofts of the trees below
the bay, he appeared to be as fit' phys
ically as before he went away. There
are a, few. more Bra' hairs In his mus
tache and his weight hna been reduced
considerably; otherwise there were no
flgns of change In his appearance from
the day he set forth for the southern
Ilnlila War Council.
When Colonel Roosevelt returned to
this country some concern was folt an to
his condition, and a period of rest was
prescribed. Ho protested that he wanteJ
to obey Instructions, but the fact was
that he seldom had been aa busy as at
the present time. He found time today to
take a Ionic walk across the country with
Mrs. Roosevelt. The remainder of the
day was given to & long council of war
with a few of his assistants and to work
with his stenographer.
Tha political outlook In New York and
Ohio na taken up today. Plans for a
vigorous campaign In New York state
were outlined. Much of Colonel Hoosevelt's
time and energies are to be directed to tho
fight In this state, which Is expected to
give one of ther severest tests of tho
strength of the new party. Theodora Doug
las 'Robinson, chairman of the state com
mittee, and Regis II. Post, forrrrar gov
ernor of Porto lllco, who was ono of tho
pioneers In this state In the formation
of the party, spent several hours at Sag

So far as could be learned the proposal
that Colonel Roosevelt accept the pro
gressive nomination for governor of New
York was not brought up. Although the
former president has been urged by some
of his assistants to consider the pro
posal, it can bo stated authoritatively
that he can forsee no contingency in
which he would give the matter serious
Colonel Roosevelt would nay nothing to
indicate that the stato ticket had been
discussed today. It Is understood, how

On a Gigantic Scale
10,000 sets at a time. Printers and binders
could be employed continuously, as long as
there was a ready demand, and a new printing
could follow immediately after the preceding
one was off the press. The demand, fortunately,
was constant, so that the mere saving in print
ing and binding in large lots was sufficient to
justify the publishers in keeping the selling
price at a low figure. If the manufacturing had
been in small lots instead of large lots, we
should long ago have had to increase the prices.
When you buy the new Britannica, therefore,
you profit not only by an idea Tvhich has given
the public the best, tho fullest and most nearly
