ems, by Alan Seeger

The poems of Alan Seeger are very beautiful, of the very first order. They are oo beautiful to admit of translation in verse. This is absolutely my conviction several earnest attempts which in spite of all my experience were nevertheless failures. In my opinion the English text should be published with no other ition than one as literal as possible, word for word, to serve as a guide to the h reader."— Jean Richepin, of the French Academy.

This book contains . . . the record of a short life, into which was crowded far
of keen experience and high aspiration of the thrill of sense and the rapture of
- than it is given to most men, even of high vitality, to extract from a life of twice

in a deadly flurry of machine-gun fire, and fell. . . . To his friends the loss
ievous, to literature it was — we shall never know how great.” William Archer.
o England the war gave as its poet-hero Rupert Brooke; as token of the love
great republics, it gave to America and France this other soldier-poet, eternally,

We are publishing this advertisement as a warning that if you want Encyclopaedia Britannica printed on genuine India paper, you must buy within a short time. If you were warned that your fire insurance policy about to expire, you would be quick to renew it. You must also be quick you would secure the Britannica, which is insurance against ignorance.

We cannot secure more India paper on which to print this monumen work of knowledge. This thin but tough paper has transformed the Britanni volumes into the handsomest, most convenient books you ever saw.

When the comparatively few sets now on hand are gone, as they very s will be, we cannot renew this opportunity to secure the greatest of all w -the Britannica-in the most valuable form-printed on genuine India pa This is a bargain that cannot be duplicated-act upon it at once by sending coupon on the adjoining page.

Whether you buy or not, you should at least investigate. You can do it simply marking and mailing the coupon on the opposite page.

War cuts off the supply of India paper

Just as we were about to reprint a further supply of the Encyclopaedia Britannica on superb paper, word came that no more flax (from which India paper is made) could be obta because of the war.

The superior grade of flax used for India paper (the kind used in making linen) is grown on Germany, Belgium and Great Britain. War has crippled the flax industry in the first two count indefinitely and Great Britain has placed an embargo on her supply. We are advised that this cannot be bought in sizable quantities for years to come. Hence the comparatively few se the Britannica now on hand are the last printed on India paper that can be offered.

They will be sold to first applicants for only $1 down and $3 a month for the "Handy Vol Issue (for cheapest binding).

The point we wish to emphasize here is not the low price and convenient terms, the scope and reliability of the Britannica, or the many advantages of India paper-you can lear about these points by sending the coupon. What we want to impress upon you here is that sets now on hand printed on genuine India paper are the last that we can offer and that this is
