The steamers of this Company are twin screw, electric lighted throughout, combin. ing greatest speed with comfort and safety. Delightful climate, beautiful scenery and the most
hospitable people in America.
At the many, prettily situated towns in the Annapolis Valley, tourists can spend the summer in a cozy retreat in a very inexpensive manner. The bracing air, filled with pure ozone, is the greatest appetizer in the world, and has made the “ Land of Evangeline" famous as a health resort. The poet Longfellow, in " Evan. geline,” has only faintly outlined its manifold charms.

THE NATION, New York: As an Encyclopædia of American interests for American readers it is un. doubtedly the best and fullest in existence.
THE SUN, New York: As it stands, the New Inter. national is the most helpful Encyclopædia in English that we have seen.
HAMILTON WRIGHT MABIE: I have found the New International Encyclopædia ready to answer all my questions and give me all the information I ask. The most careful person need not fear to trust it implicitly. It happily combines scholarly exact. ness of knowledge with simplicity and interest of statement.
WILLIAM R. HARPER, D.D., Pres't University, Chicago : I have had occasion to use the New International Encyclopædia. The articles I have consulted are well written and show evidence of a thorough and satisfactory grasp of the subject. The name of President Gilman as chief editor guarantees that the work has been thoroughly done.
An entirely new work. Not a revision of nor based upon any existing work. Every subject completely, exhaustively treated down to the year 1903. Comprehensive, accurate, trustworthy, impartial, and intelligible. The most competent specialists have contributed to its various departments.
The advance sales have already exceeded $1,000,000. Over 700 public libraries have purchased this Encyclopædia. · It is not a Dictionary but a perfect Encyclopædia worthy of its name. 17 Royal Octavo volumes. More than 16,000 pages. 65,000 separate articles-double the number found in any other Encyclopædia in the English language. 100 full-page colored lithographs. 600 full-page engravings. More than 7,000 illustrations. Everything arranged for quick reference by busy men and women.
The New International, now practically complete, is still offered at a special introductory price, so low and on terms so easy that every book-loving individual may possess it and not feel the outlay.
There is a host of reasons why The New International Encyclopædia is best for American readers, but it is impossible to present them in an advertisement. We have therefore prepared an 80-page book containing handsome illustrations and maps, and fully describing this monumental work, which we will send you free upon request.
