As a special introductory offer to those who are occasional readers, but not regular subscribers to The Outlook, we will send you the next ten issues for $1.

[ocr errors]

This special introductory rate means a saving of 3343 per cent from the regular news-stand price of 15 cents per copy. It enables you with but little outlay to become acquainted with The Outlook, which one reader describes as “a welcome ambassador from everywhere."

“In many ways you are like Benjamin Franklin," writes another, “nourishing us as he nourished his fellow-men. You show the same universal sympathy for common men and the same entire faith in them. You have the same poise, simplicity, practicality, and fundamental Americanism, and the same zeal to serve."


“To be a constant reader of The Outlook means more to me than a college degree ; it is a distinction and education in itself," writes another.

“ The editorial opinions have the weight of a jury's decision," declares still another reader.

Readers of The Outlook usually feel lost without it. It has one of the highest records as to yearly subscription renewals of any American periodical of general character.

A CHANCE TO WIN $50 Three prize letter contests have recently been conducted, and two more are shortly to be announced.

A first prize of $50, a second prize of $30, and a third prize of $20 will be paid to winners of each of the remaining contests, and numerous letters, not winning prizes, will receive cash pay. ment.

Why not watch for these prize contest nouncements and compete for the money? Any one can enter.

Everybody likes to build, but nobody likes “ repair jobs.”

Repair jobs inevitably represent an additional investment without any, addition to value.

That point is worth digesting.
When you build, whatever you build, you like to build " for keeps."

Some people change their minds about styles, in building the same as in wearables; our tastes develop and result in changes in our wants; but nobody changes his or her mind as to wishing to get the greatest possible endurance, or wear, out of the things they buy, and especially is this true of building investments.

Yet, singularly enough, as many people know so little about woods and their relative values and special utilities ; so many people think that “lumber is lumber” and never attempt to specify the KIND of wood they wish used; so many people believe that repair bills are " necessary evils,” that we believe we shall be able to render a real public service by continuing the publication of THE CYPRESS POCKET LIBRARY, convenient in size, authoritative in character, of probable value as a technical guide, and careful and scrupulous in its every statement or inference.

We have not, and do not, by any means, recommend the use of Cypress without discrimination ; Cypress is not the best wood for every use; but where it IS appropriate it is so emphatically and demonstrably) the one best wood that the many should know about it instead of the comparatively few who formerly profited by their special knowledge.

WRITE FOR VOLUME I, with full text of U. S. Government Report on Cypress, and containing complete list of all the +3 volumes in the library. Then write us for the volumes that will best serve you.

It may be of interest that many of the volumes of The Cypress Pocket Library have become established as standard works of reference-text books -in a number of eminent educational institutions and Government Departments. This is a gratifying tribute to the broad and helpful spirit in which these booklets have been produced, and more than justifies the theories behind the original pioneer idea of such a Library for Lumber USERS.


“RHYMING GEOGRAPHY," a subscriber A

writes in answer to an inquiry in our issue of August 10, was published about the year 1814 by Victorianus Clark, of Cornwall, Connecticut; it dealt only with the United States. Another rhyming geography was by George Waters, and was published in 1852. Here is a sample of its "poetry:" In New York State, where Hudson

meets the brine, New York and Brooklyn in their

trade combine. On the same side West Point and

Newburg stay; Poughkeepsie, Hudson, Troy, and Al

bany. Schenectady, with Utica and Rome, l'pon the Erie Channel find a home.

“Dentists," says the “Service Magazine," "generally agree that an ingrowing toe-nail is one thing that cannot be cured by extracting all your teeth."

Curious advertisements sometimes appear in Irish local papers. An example:

Take Notice.--Any person or persons found taking or gathering Crabs on any of the Lands of which I am Caretaker, will be prosecuted, as I have found Stolen Potatoes in the Bags containing Crabs. (Signed)

Michael ('on roy. Crabs in this case appears to mean crabapples. Evidently it has been the custom on large estates to allow this comparatively worthless fruit to be carried off without hindrance, but the privilege seems to have been abused.
