and fraternalism is brotherhood as

The great bargain we off er the new Encyclopaedia
Britannica, unabridged, complete, in a new handy form
at an unprecedentedly low price was all created before
the war, the preparations, contracts and purchases
made. We could offer this bargain, we could make
these prices, only because of huge purchases at very
low prices and great economies in manufacture. We
could not do it now; nor can we obtain any more sets
at anything like present prices.
- After next Saturday you will have to pay from $11

for identically the same work.
If you are thrifty, you will save this money ; if you
are careless, hesitating, you will lose it,
because you need the Encyclopaedia Britannica
in your home. Your family needs it ; the children es
pecially. And if it is the right kind of a home you will
have it there.

brings you this splendid reference library
The Tremendous Cost of the New
It seems almost unbelievable to say that a million and a
halt dollars could be spent on any single set of books (espe
cUUy if these books were to be sold for a total of fifty or sixty
dollars). Only one work in the whole history of publishing
his ever cost so much and that is the new Eleventh Edition of
the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
It cost this enormous sum first of all because it is a work of
the highest authorities in every field of human knowledge. It
could have been compiled by hack writers for a tenth this
sum; but it would not have been the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
The contributing staff includes representatives from
81 different universities in 21 different countries, and from 65
other colleges, a total of over 700 university and college experts.
And all of these have wot, distinction in their especial fields.
The 1500 contributors furnished a total of over40,000articles.
Every one of these 40,000 articles had to be verified, edited,
compressed and trimmed into its allotted space. Thousands
of these articles were submitted to two or more, experts for
revision and criticism.
It is this sort of patience and thoroughness and prodigal
outlay which has made the Encyclopaedia Britannica the one
work of its kind in all the world. If you buy anything else
you buy something Inferior something cheaply made, just
A Library To Be Proud Of
If you have a taste for a smartly kept home
whether large or small
it in that home you have a well-selected collection
of books whether it be large or small ,
if in your conversation you reveal a knowledge of
books and events and history
and it your children are bright and well-informed-yon
Inevitably gain distinction in the eyes of your
neighbors and your friends.
Towards all this the possession of the Encyclopaedia
Britannica contributes immensely. Everyone knows
that it is the greatest reference work in the world
the highest authority the last word.
From It you can cultivate as richly stored a mind
as most people get from the finest university training
(and the odd thing to it is that the 41,000
articles of the Britannica form a mine of in
teresting reading as well) .
A dollar, with the order form adjoining, brings
you the complete work.

What Every Woman Should Know
In these days of Woman's Clubs, Suffrage mee tints, Better
Mother, Better Babies, and Better Homes, the modern woman
must be far better "prepared" than the woman of former times. .
But very few women have any real, chance to gain
thorough education or really to learn much. Not one woman
in 200 in the United States goes to college.
This is Just why the Encyclopaedia Britannica has been
such a splendid uplift and aid to many brilliant women, and to
lots of others who Just want to know a little more than they
da Mrs. Kate Waller Barrett, President of the National
Council of Women, says that her children were very largely
brought up on the Encyclopaedia Britannica and that she Her
self owes to it an immense debt
In hundreds of women's clubs it has already become known
as an unfailing source of reference in debates and discussions.
Actually many women's clubs have purchased it
Almost every woman in the land can now own the newest
edition of the Britannica in the daintiest and most attractive
, form in which this or any other encyclopaedia was ever issued.
And the volumes of the Britannica lend an unusual stamp '
of distinction and refinement to every home in which they are
A Miracle of Compactness
If you are familiar with the older issue of the En
cyclopaedia Britannica, you instinctively think of it as
a huge work in 25 to 35 volumes, occupying eight
feet or so on your bookshelves.
The 29 volumes of the new "Handy Volume" Issue
take up only 32 inches on the bookshelf and weigh
only about 60 pounds. , ,
Yet every one of the 30,000 pages of the great
Cambridge University issue is here, without
the abridgment of a line or a word.
In the handsome bookcase here shown yoq can
flick it up and move it anywhere you like (or put it
n your trunk and take it off to the country with yon
if you like). ' '
And each volume, printed on the beautiful India
paper, is so light that you can hold it in your hand and
read for an hour with no aense of fatigue.
Never was any great work of reference issued in
such a compact ana handy form.
And the amazing thing of it is that it actually costs
you only one-third the price charged for the larger
