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.

Moreover, an exact knowledge of the Pan-German political and plot throws a flood of light on all the essential problems of the war; it brings deep-seated cause of the war; it explains the immediate causes, which are ost unknown; it shows why it is indispensable to the freedom of the world Allies should achieve, not a hollow and treacherous peace, but a complete resulting in the destruction of Prussian militarism."

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.

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
