AKE the average young man?perhaps without the advantage of a college education?who is ambitious to get on in the world, and realizes that the collection and use of a good working library will be a great means to bring about this desired result. The problem' is "What books shall I buy?" "What general plan of reading should be mapped out in order to get the best results ?" "What will be the cost of a good working library?" These questions are fre quently asked us. We give below just a brief list of helpful works, as well as a few of the works of standard authors in sets, of which we have a most comprehensive stock. We suggest that you cut this list out and preserve it; get a few of the works now and others from time to time; ask our advice freely; we have experienced bookmen who will be glad to give you helpful suggestions as to a plan of reading. The cost will not seem much even to one with a moderate income if a few of the works are purchased at a time. This is an ideal time to begin the collection of your library?the long evenings can be profitably and delightfully spent in reading the fascinating works of Parkman, Fiske and other writers on American history in the early days. Books of travel will entertain and instruct, and an occasional reading of some work on political economy, municipal problems, social questions, etc., will give added zest to the lighter read ing. The result will be a season of greater enjoyment and profit, and the development of a taste for reading that as the years go by will not fail to bring a broader, more accurate view of affairs and events, and many pleasant hours that the true book lover finds in his books.
