CHILD OF GOD
By Cyrus Townsond Brady
The iferarx Efepst
THE LITERARY DIGEST for May 1st will be rqad with intense interest because it
deals with the one question which is in everybody's mind "When Will the War End?"
The editors of THE LITERARY DIGEST have gone to the best source of informa
tion open they have consulted the belligerents themselves. THE DIGEST'S editors wrote
to the editors of every paper of importance in France, Russia, Germany, and England,
asking them to give their views upon the length of the war. Many replies have been
received and a selection of them is published in this week's issue, on sale to-day.
Notwithstanding the fact that both sides are suffering from the muzzle of a press
censorship, as two editors very candidly 6tate, a surprizing amount o information has
This is the first publication of a complete consensus of opinion from the people
of the warring nations who are most likely to know "When the War Will End," and it
will be read and studied with interest by thinking people the world over.
"Southern Feeling 50 Years After Appomattox"
"Harnessing Democracy to the Water Wagon"
are two other subjects from many of particular
timeliness which every one will enjoy reading.
The number of readers of THE LITERARY
DIGEST has increased immensely during the past few
months, and now numbers nearly 2,000,000 weekly.
These readers represent the thoughtful classes the men
and women who recognize and appreciate the essential
things in life.
They find THE LITERARY DIGEST something
more than merely a weekly magazine, because it sup
plies them with a definite and indispensable service
which saves their time and money.
Science, Invention, Literature, Art, Religion, Pol
itics, Education, Industry, Sport, Drama, are treated
weekly with the importance which they deserve, and
in a couple of hours' reading the reader can get a far
clearer understanding of the world's thought and
activity than he can get through any other source.
