Why This Half-Price Sale
Mark a Twain wanted everyone in America to own a
set of his books. So one of the last things he asked us
was that we make a set at so low a price that everyone
might own it.
He taid, Don't make tine editions. Don't make
editions to tell for $200 and $300 and $ 1000. 'Make
good books, books good to look at and easy to read, and
make their price low."
So we have made this tet. And up to now wc were able
, to tell it at rhit low price. But a thing has happened that
Mark Twain could not foresee.
Gat your sat Worst these f o. Remember, never again will a set of Mark
at such a price as this. When this edition it tone there will be no more.

Railroads to File
Tariffs to Cover
Increase in Rates
. . .
ashington, April 23. The Inter
state Commerce commission today
prescribed the method of procedure
in the IS per -cent rate advance cases
by permitting the railroads to file
supplemental tariffs covering the in
crease. This is in line with the com
mission's tentative order entered a
few days ago.
The new tariff will be subject to
protest, suspension, complaint, inves
tigation and correction, the commis
sion announced, and their riling is
only preliminary to detailed consider
ation of the application and does not
dispose of the cases.
Indications are that the commis
sion will soon set dates for hearings
at which the merits of the increases
will be considered and shippers will
be given an opportunity to state their
The effective date of the order,
should it be finally approved, is
changed from June 1 to July 1.

As Children We Lored Him
They say that children know the
inwardness of things. A child knows
the heart of a man. We as children
instinctively knew Mark Twain was
so mfich greater, so much truer than
anybody else that there was no one to
compare him with.
Now, grown up, we knowthe reason
rhv. He had the heart of a child; he
had the style of a master; he had a
character of rare beauty.
Big Elevator and
200,000 Bushels of
. Erie, Pa., AprH 25. More than
200,000 bushels of wheat and a large
wooden grain elevator known M
"Elevator A" of the Western Trans
portation company, owned by the
Great Lakes Transit corporation, were
destroved by fire here tonight with
a loss" estimated at $600,000.
The grain, it is said, was consigned
to the allies. Officials of the company
assert that the fire started from n
overheated pulley in a tower on the
lake side of the elevator.
The elevator was the remaining one
of three elevators, built by the cor
poration, the other two having been
destroyed by fire more than a year
ago, with a loss of more than $800,000
in grain consigned to Europe.

The Great .tVmericu
He was American, He had the
idealism of America the humor, the
kindliness, the reaching towarfi a big
ger thing, the simplicity. In his work
we find all things, from the ridiculous
in "Huckleberry Finn" to the sublime
of "Joan of Arc," the most spiritual
book that was ever written in the Eng
lish language, of serene and lovely
beauty as lofty as Joan herself. A man
who could write two such books as
"Huckleberry Finn" and "Joan ol
Arc" was sublime in power. His youth
and his laughter are eternal; his genius
will never die.
