A GIFT WITH A THOUGHT IN IT.
What other Christmas present costs
so little and means so much as a sub
scription to The Yquth's Companion
52 weeks for $1.75? It is a gift which
benefits not only the one who receives
it, but every member of the same
With many Christmas presents the
sense of novelty wears off by the
week's end, but The Youth's Com
panion is as new and sought after the
fifty-second week of the year as the
first. It is elastic in its adaptability,
too; for it does not matter whether the
prtesent is for a boy or a girl, young
married people, sedate couples, grand
parents-there never was one yet who
did not set store by The Youth's Com
panion. You cannot make a mistake
if you give The Companion-and it is
only $1.75 a year now. On Jan. 1.
1912, the price will be advanced to
The one to whom you give the sub.
scription will receive free The Com
panialon's Calendar for 1912, litho.
graphed in ten colors and gold, and
yeaou, too, as giver of the subscription,
will receive a copy of the calendar.
