scribers. Among the authors in the
coming series are; Wilkie Collins,
Walter Besant, Mrs. Oliphant, Mary
Cecil Hay, Florence Marryat. An

wish to take advantage of this unusual
opportunity, send one dollar for Staf
ford’s magazine, aud your first number
of the fifty-two novels (one each week)
which you are to receive during the
year will be sent you by return mail.
