Forty-second street, New York will

This i 150 per cent off the usual

judged by the following from the
Cleveland Plain Dealer:
"There is certainly no publication
that attracts readers more easily than
the New York Sunday Telegraph, and
this agreeable state of affairs is due to
its clever knack of giving the reader
just the kind of news he wants and
presenting it in just the manner he
likes to read it. The Sunday Tele
graph s popularity is enhanced by
special features not to be found in any
other newspaper, and by a supple

equal to those of the best magazines."
