By the author of Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son. A
new series of papers in which Old Man Graham preaches the gospel
of good business and tells some of his characteristic stories. This Life
Story of a Self-Made Merchant, by George Horace Lorimer, will be
one of the features of coming issues of the magazine. The Lettera
from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son met with universal favor, and
there is every reason to believe that the new series by the same author
will be equally popular. In the new series old Graham tells the story
of his own business career : how he began life as a farmer's boy, worked
his way to the front and became the biggest pork packer in the West.
