like light, water and the telephone It will do for you
efficiently what you cannot do for yourself It is as
useful as the other public utilities you depend on so much
and as indispensable. Perhaps you say that you have
got along without it for a long time. That is just what
your grandfather probably said about the telephone.
Can you afford to do without it any longer? Who would
want to do without running water or telephone service
after once having them, even if his home had been
without them for years before?
Practical, everyday pcqple who have used the Bri
" How did we ever get along without the nctc
Drilannical" Or they call it "The most
useful Ihing that ever came into the house."
A Many-Sided Service
The Britannica differs from other utilities in being
useful and necessary in more ways than any other 'one
thing you can have in the house. It gives you the
benefit of the best expert advice in every- field nnd on
The Britannica service makes you more efficient.
It helps you do your own work quicker and better it is
concentrated, storcd-up energy, a store-house of live,
valuable information, a true "power-house." Because
it supplies you with the means of saving time, trouble
The Britannica puts at vour service expert advice
as the telephone connects you with your physician.
You need it for the unforeseen emergency as well as for
the countless everyday things' that you know you want
help on. All the difficulties that can present themselves
to you are problems other people have had to meet.
Men and women the world oyer have worked, each of
them for years, some of them their whole lives, to solve
these problems. Their experience is in the Britannica
for you to profit by. They arc at your call when you
have the Britannica. For Si down and 10 cents a day
for a few months you may own this wonderful service.
It is as if for that small sum you could call by telephone
the best authority or expert in the world to answer any
question that came up, to give you advice on any sub
ject you wanted IicId on!
Do You Want Help in Your
You can get it in the Britannica just as many other
people have done. For instance, a. North Carolina
cotton broker said that the article on Cotton was" worth
' the price of the whole set. A New York lawyer got
just the information he needed in a lawsuit about iron
and steel. He couldn't find it anywhere else or get it
from his client who manufactured car-couplers. A
manufacturer of flavoring extracts learned from the
Britannica enough about his own business to save the.,
cost of the whole set.
(He and txerynf till miW in IM pjratrafh faiJ at
lean three limes as much as you need fay for tne Bnlanmea),
Do You Want Help at Home?
Planning a house or remodeling one, studying decora,
lion or ventilation, you get expert advice and valuable
suggestions from the Britannira. Equally useful is
what you will get from this same wonderful, all-around
service on the care of babies and .children, food, diet,
cookery, rules for health, directions for-first aid to the
injured, study aids and supplementary reading for school
boys and girls and for young men and women in college,

Improvements in Service
Other utilities have been improved, cheapened and
made more convenient by long and gradual processes,
so that we hardly, notice the change.
The service of the Britannica has been improved
wonderfully fast in the last few years, The- new
eleventh edition with more in it and of better quality
has been sold right along at a lower price than previous
editions, and quality and quantity considered, at a
lower price than apy other encyclopaedia. Now the
lmore convenient and compact "Handy Volume"
issue of the pew edition is offered for 64 less than the
FREE BOOKLET COUPON
big-volume form It Is Three Times a Easy to
Buy and just as valuable because it contains every
thing in the set that costs three times as much.
The Utility is More Usable
The new Britannica is the; first encyclopaedia to
appear in a form that is npt repellent, awkward and in
convenient. The word "encyclopaedia." like the phrase
"unabridged dictionary," probably brings to your mind's
eye a picture of a heavy, cumlcrsomc volume or shelf
after shelf of such volumes, The "Handy Volume"
Britannica, printed on India paper, light, thin, strong and
opaque, changes all that. The volumes are only an inch
thick and the page is only 8j inches high and 6J inches
wide not as big as a magazine page, instead of being as
big as the page of an unabridged dictionary.
A "Handy Volume" weighs only ai ounces (1 lb,
5 oz.). That is a good deal less than the average weight
of a novel. It is about one-sixth the weight of a volume
of the encyclopaedia printed on heavy paper and with the
o!d-fash;-Jicd, awkward, big pages. But everything in
the bis, awkward volume is in the light, attractive
"Handy Volume" which costs 6 1 less. It is exactly
as useful because it has the full 100 of the contents of
the bigger set, and much more usable because in smaller

The new form of the eleventh edition of the
Encyclopaedia Britannica is nothing less than mar
velous. To put that great work in such small com
pass and in so.uscful a form Is of Itself an achieve
ment; to do so dnd yet make a page which I can
certify is no more trying to a pair of bad eyes than
the original edition, is a landmark in bookmaking.
You arc doing u public service In putting these in
dispensable volumes within the reach of everyone.

An Incomparable Value
For 150 years the Encyclopaedia Britannica has
been the world's standard. It has always cost more than
other encyclopaedias. Yet more copies of it have been
sold than of all other encyclopaedias published all over
the world. It was always so much better.
Now that its supremacy is still more marked
Now that it is published in such a compact and con
venient and wonderfully usable form
Now that it is cheaper and more convenient.
It Is Yours for Only JlDown

The Encyclopaedia Britannica and with the form of the
"HANDY VOLUME" Imuc To anyone who Is not tatltlled
lor anv reaton and returns the sat within three week), we

that the "HANDY VOLUME" Imuc Ii authorlted by the
publisher of the new Encyclopaedia Britannica; that the
contents arc Identical, page for page (Including every map

now selling at three tlmos jhe price; that the "HANDY
VOLUME" Issue Is printed on the same quality of India
paper, from newly made plates, and Is manufactured by th
same printers and binders as the more expensive book; and
that, because It It smaller, it I an easier hook to handle
than the Cambridge Issue,
Plenty of Time to Pay the Balance

as little as Sj.oo a month, That means'only 10 cents a
day for this short time. But you make no payment
except the St.OD down until you get the set in your own
home Then you pay at the very time you arc using the
Britannica and getting actual value out of it.
You run no risk. Wc take all the risk. Or, to put

docs not mean very much to you. You probably don't
often ponder a long time over sucli a small expenditure.
Perhaps you often spend a dollar and have little to show
for it afterwards. This time think over the expendi
ture carefully. Because you wilt have a good deal to
show for it afterwards.
