The Britannica Is a Utility
like light, water and the telephone It will do for you
efficiently what you cannot do for yourctf It is as
useful as the other public utilities you depend on so much
and as indispensable. Perhaps you say that you have
got along without it for long time. That is just what
your grandfather probably said about the telephone.
Can you afford to do without it any longer ? Who would
want to do without running water or telephone service
after once having them, even if hit home had been
without them for years before?
Practical, everyday peqple who have used the Bri

A Many-Sidcd Service
The Britannic differs from other utilities in being
useful and necessary fn more way than any other one
thing you can have In the house. It give you the
benefit of the best expert sxMce in every- field and on
every subject.
The Britannica service make you more efficient.
It helps yon do your own work quicker and better it is
concentrated, stored-up energy, a store-house of live-
valuable irJormatkm. a true "power how." Because
It supplies you with the cneaea f aaving time, trouble
and energy.
The Britannica puts at ymrr servW espert advice
as the telephone connects you with your physician.
You need it for the unforeseen tma,tficy aa well as for
the countless everyday thirujsHhat you know you want
help on. AH the difficulties that can present theniaetvea
to you are problems other people have had to meet.
Men and women the world over have worked, each of
them for years, scene of them their whole lives, to solve
these problems. Their experience la in the Britannica
for you to profit by. They art at your call when you
have the Britannica. For i down and to cents a day
for a few months you may own this wonderful service.
It ia aa if for that small rum you could call by telephone
the best authority or expert In the world to answer any
question that came up, to pn you advice on any sub
ject you wanted help oot
Do You Want Help In Your
Day's Work?
You ran get it in the Britannica )utt aa many other
people have done. For irmance, a North Qarolina
cotton broker said that the article on Cotton was' worth
the price of the whole act. A New York lawyer got
just the information be needed in a lawsuit about iron
and steel. He couldn't find it anywhere else or get it
from hia client who manufactured car-couplers. A
manufacturer of flavoring extracts learned from the
Britannica enough about hia own business to save the.
cost of the whole set.

Do You Want Help at Home?
Planning a bouse or remodeling one, studying decora
tion or ventilation, you get expert advice and valuable
suggestions from the Britannica. Equally useful is
what you will get from this same wonderful, all-around
service on the care of babies and children, food, diet,
cookery, rules for health, directions for first aid to the
injured, study aids and supplementary reading for school
boys and girls and for young men and women in college.
Aa owner ol the Britannica. ho was bora in Denmark, says: "In
my country instead ol 'cacyclcpasdia' we say 'familjebok,' that is
'lamily book.' 1 he Britannica Is aa Ideal 'family book.' "
Improvements in Service
Other utilities have been improved, cheapened and
made more convenient by long and gradual processes,
so that we hard), notice the change.
The service of the Britannica has been improved
wonderfully fast in the last few years. The- new
eleventh edition with, more in it and of belter quality
has been sold right along at a lower price than previous
editions, and quality and quantity considered, at a
lower price than apy other encyclopaedia. Now the
jrnore convenient and compact "Handy Volume"
issue of the pew edition is offered for 64 less than the
big-volume form. It I Three Times aa Easy to
Buy and just as valuable because it contains every
thing in the set that costs three times as much.
The Utility is More Usable ,
The new Britannica ia the first encyclopaedia to
appear In a form that is not repellent, awkward and in
convenient. The word "encyclopaedia." like the phrase
"unabridged dictionary," probably brings to your mind a
eye a picture of a heavy,' cumbersome volume or shelf
after shelf of such volumes. The "Handy Volume"
Britannica, printed on India paper, tight, thin, strong and
opaque, change all that. The volumes are only an inch
thick and the paga is only 8 inches high and 6) inches
wide not as big as a magaaiae paga, instead of being as
big as the page of an unabridged dictionary.
A "Handy Voluma" weighs only at ounce (r lb.
3 01.). That is a good deal less than the average weight
of a novel. It ia about one-sixth the weight of a volume
of the encyclopaedia printed on heavy paper and with the
oM-faahioned, awkward, big pages. But everything in
the big, awkward volume Is in the light, attractive
"Handy Volume" which costs 6j ls. It ie exactly
as useful because it has the full 100 of the contents of
the bigger set, and much more usable because in smaller

Plenty of Time to Pay the Balance
You make small payments for twenty-one months
as little as $3.00 a month. That means only 10 cents a
day for this short time. But you make no payment
except the ?i.oo down until you get the set in your own k jj ft j
"vi"- n twii yj my time jju arc using ine
Britannica and getting actual value out of it.
You run no risk. W'a take all the risk. Or, to put
it another way, we don't see any risk. Ve are so sure
that you'll be satisfied. But if there is any risk, it is
ours, not yours. Our whole offer means that we have
absolute confidence in the "Handy Volume" issue
of the new Britannica.
Ceo dement
The new form of the eleventh edition of the
Encyclopaedia lMtannlca is nothlnt less than mar
vcloua. To put that treat work In such small com
pas and In ao. useful form Is of itself an achieve
ment; to do so and yet maka a pat which I can
certify la no more trying to pair of bad eyes than
the original edition, is a landmark In bcokmaking.
You are doing public eerrLce la putting thee ln

An Incomparable Value
For 150 years the Encyclopaedia Britannica has
been the world's standard. It has always cost more than
other encyclopaedias. Yet more copies of it have been
told than of all other encyclopaedias published all over
the world. It was always so much better.
Now that its sujemacy is still more marked
Now that it is published in such a compact and con
venient and wonderfully usable form -
Now that it is cheaper and more convenient-.
