DEAR READER: Do you know which of the subjects in
this circle your child will ask about?
Of course not; for he may be a genius on any one of
them. But you cannot be prepared to answer him on all
of them; if you were you would know everything.
And yet he should have his questions answered while he
is eager, or he may lose interest in what would otherwise
make him successful and, maybe, famous.
Is is not better to tell the child that you do not know,
if you don't, and invite him to help you look up the ques
tion in the Encyclopedia Britannica?
In this way he soon becomes an investigator.
Your child now has a chance to secure a set. THE
TRIBUNE will supply this splendid library to you at 10
cents a day.
A. 1W X
Scranton, Pa., Nov. 13, 1893.
The Encyclopedia Britannica, with American Ad
ditions and Revisions is a work every family should
have. The price at which the enterprising TRIBUNE
offers it to its readers, combined with the easy plan of
Sayment, brings the Encyclopedia within reach of all.
fo one eager to own this most valuable compendium
of knowledge need now complain that it is too costly. I
have examined the work and find the print, paper and
binding just what are wanted in a book of reference.
Any plan that spreads the advantages of educational
facilities deserves the patronage and consideration of
the public. J. C. LANGE,
Principal High School.
The oiler, as extended by THE TRIBUNE, to furnish the
Britannica at wholesale prices and on easy monthly payments
can remain open hut H) days more.
Why wait for the last day and then subscribe because you
know it's your last chance? You have resolved that you would
have this great library and such it truly is. Secure it now!
On receipt of $4. 50 we will send the complete set, the bal
ance to be paid on easy monthly payments. If asked it you
mean to possess this great work you unhesitatingly say, Yes!
Our niftlinil is suited to the cirriimst.incea ot nil.
Remember, that it costs no more on the easy payment plan than if vou paid cash! Start it on the
"10c. a day" plan and any time you desire and circumstances will warrant you can close the account by
one payment, as hundreds have done. The people who wait until they can lay down the cash are the
people who are without an Encyclopedia.
The books can be seen any time during the day or evening at 437 Spruce Street.
If yon are fully occupied a volume will be sent to any part of the city for examination.
In ordering by mail address all communications to
