This Great Busy Man's Library

is made up of the six best known and most practical business books ever published. They are printed in clear type on highest grade antique finish book paper, handsomely and substantially bound in half morocco with titles stamped in gold leaf. These books are uniform i 5j^x8 inches—from 192 to 308 pages.

SALES PROMOTION:—A book which deals with the most vital force in the success of any business—how to make more sales—more profit. Not written exclusively for the man on the road—but for the entire force. The clerk who does not read it misses a chance to learn how to earn more money. The merchant or manufacturer who reads it will surely want to place a copy in the hands of every man who has anything to do with getting business. Not a word of theory in it—each chapter was written by a successful salesman or manager of salesmen.


would learn the art of writing conviction compelling—sales making;—money getting letters, this book was written. And it was written—not oy a theorist—but by successful business men who make their living by writing letters—men who have succeeded because of their ability to put conviction into the written page. They give you the knowledge gained by hard work and long experience.

ESSENTIALS OF BUSINESS LAW:-A work dealing with the practical points of commercial law which come up in every day business life, and written in plain understandable terms for the busy business roan. "What you want to know, when you want it ' is the keynote of this work by Francis M. Burdick, Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, than whom there is no higher authority. So entertaining is the author's style that it is a positive pleasure to read what is usually obscured by a mass of technicalities intelligible only to the trained legal mind.

THE CREDIT MAN AND HIS WORK:-Of all that has been written on the subject of credits, this book is the roost practical for it is not an expression of the ideas of one man but the combined work of twenty credit specialists. It gets right down to the heart of- the subject—it deals in a sane common sense way with the very problems that confront every man who has to do with credit sales—whether manufacturing, wholesale, retail or instalment. Not only does it tell how to determine the credit risk; but how to organize a credit department, either small or large; how to keep the records; how to handle collections.

MANUFACTURING COST:—Not a description of the intricate cost system of some great manufacturing plant, but a work

$1500 a Year for Life

Five shares in the creat commercial rubber orchard of the Conservative Rubber Production Company should, at maturity, yield you a sure and certain income of 11500 a year. No large cash payment down is required to secure them as they can be paid for as follows ■ 825.00 a month for the first year; $30.00 a month for the second year; $15.00 a month for the four succeeding years; then (20.00 a month the last year—making $1500 in seven years which covers the entire cost.

One or more shares are sold at a proportional rate.

The income derived from trees during the seven-year development period should average 25% on the money invested; then $1500 a year for life. This most conservative estimate is based upon government reports of the United States and Great Britain, the most reliable sources of information in the world. v *" On our splendid estate of 12,000 acres in tropical Mexico, we are changing the

production of crude rubber from the primitive and destructive methods hitherto emi>'oye<^ ky the natives to the most scientific and successful plan known to modern forestry, 'iw^r and under Anglo-Saxon supervision.

tjjftg. There is nothing speculative about crude rubber. It can be sold every day in the year in

„jjg any market in the world at a price that has been steadily increasing for years. For a quarter of

7s a century the world s supply has been spoken for months before it reached the civilized market.

v The price has doubled in a decade, and the question of future supply is of vast moment and can

only be solved by the scientific cultivation of the rubber tree.

We are now engaged in this new and immensely profitable industry on a large scale, and the unusual opportunity is open to you to secure shares in our plantation. Each share represents an undivided interest in all our land—6000 acres of which is being planted to rubber, and what has already been accomplished assures the success of the enterprise.

Every possible safeguard surrounds the investor. These safeguards are embodied in the contracts which provide that you are to pay no taxes, no salaries, no fines or assessments, and payments will be suspended for three months without prejudice and maybe made up at any time during the seven years.

Our literature gives conclusive facts, logical figures, and definite reference as to our Integrity ana responsibility, and proves that our proposition is bona fide, safe and enormously profitable. Such an investment insutes the absolute safety of your future and comfort in old age. Our booklet "Money Making; Opportunities of Mexico '* proves that our statements are absolutely correct. The Company is divided into only 6,000 shares which are being rapidly taken—over 900 people having already become associated with us.

Write to ua and we will furnish you with facta that will put you in close touch with every d stall of our plan.
Oui literature 1b Sent Free, and every request for It will receive Immediate attention. Write for It to-day.

OU will get the TECHNICAL WORLD MAGAZINE every month , for a full year— 12 big, handsome, and interesting magazines. It will be the best investment you ever made of $1.50—it will bring you the best

magazine you have ever read—a magazine which will interest and instruct every member of your family, every month— 12 magazines, each with 1 12 pages of reading matter making a total of 1920 pages for $1.50 or 13 PAGES FOR ONE CENT.

CThe TECHNICAL WORLD MAGAZINE has correspondents in every important city in the world who are constantly gathering the latest news that you want to know and getting wonderful photographs that bring you close to the scenes they describe and make you actually see them.

d. During the coming year we shall print all that is new, important, and interesting concerning Air Ships, Automobiles, the New Navy, Forestry, Irrigation, Astronomy, Agriculture, Geology, Electricity, Engineering, and hundreds of other subjects too numerous to mention. We shall describe how things are made — ordinary, everyday things and the rare and wonderful things as well. We snaU describe the romances and dramas of the commercial world, so little known to the average reader.

C. We cannot announce beforehand what these articles will be, because the events have not occurred nor the discoveries been made, but if you will look into any recent number of the TECHNICAL WORLD MAGAZINE, you can see what they will be like except that we shall make each number better than the one which preceded it

C Then we shall have a good live story—fiction—every month, some poetry, biography, stories of travel, etc., and finally we shall give some space to strange things which happen the world over —freaks of nature, wrecks and accidents which have a bearing upon our progress in knowledge of natural law.

C No other periodical in the world has attempted or can attempt to cover the field as well as the TECHNICAL WORLD MAGAZINE
