LAST SETS NOW SELLING
This Beautiful Bookcase Free This beautiful bookcase, in Mahogany finish especially designed
by Maple Co. of London, will be given free with each set in the New Form while this offer lasts.
THE PUBLIC is entitled to a plain statement regarding our amaz
ing sale of the Encyclopaedia Britannica in the New Form at a saving of 46%.
You, especially, if at all interested in the Britannica, will want to know exactly what are your chances of getting one of these wonderful sets before they are entirely sold out.
The facts are these: We ordered 10,000 sets in this New Form for this sale, thinking that number would be ample for many months. But the demand has been enormous. Thousands of people jumped at the chance of getting the latest, large type Britannica, complete and unabridged, at a price reduction of nearly one-half.
As a result we are now near the end of our stock. This means certain disappointment for thousands. We shall have no alternative but to return all orders after the few sets now remaining are gone. No more half price sets after
the present stock is sold The reason is this: No more sets in the New Form at a reduction of 46% can be produced for nearly a year. To print the Britannica in any form is a stupendous undertaking. It takes three or four months to make the paper. It takes five months more for printing and binding. In any event we could not guarantee delivery on a new printing before next September.
Of course you will still be able to get the Britannica—but only in the Cambridge Issue, which sells for nearly twice as much. Only prompt action will get
one of these sets "Some day," you have said, “I will own the Encyclopaedia Britannica."

and mother to give their children every educational advantage, every business opportunity, or gifts of wealth untold, if the children have not also the moral control of sterling character woven into the very fibre of their being? A prominent judge, the other day, attributed juvenile delinquency in a large degree to the absence of the religious influence in the home.
What It Brings Every Week
1. Dr. Cadman's Radio Address
Fills a Real NEED in Family Life
This great family paper, published since 1878, going into nearly a quarter of a million Christian homes every week, has been called "the outstanding interdenominational religious weekly of our country.” If you believe it is worth while to have the eternal Bible Truths taught to every child in America and to all the peoples of the earth; if you think there is MORE to life than mental training, physical development, material possessions, and mechanical progress, then you will welcome this moulder of family ideals, this character-building influence in your home.

The regular price of Christian Herald is 5c a week, $2.00 a year (Foreign $3.00), but to introduce it in your home we agree to mail you a copy every week for 52 weeks (1 year) (regular news-stand price $2.60) and one beautiful 1926 Scripture Text Wall Calendar, size 9% x 16 inches (with a choice Bible verse for each day of the year)-BOTH for only $2.10, postpaid. For each month there is a reproduction in colors of one of the world's religious masterpieces, making a collection of twelve great Bible pictures in all. From an artistic standpoint, this Calendar is the equal of many calendars selling at $1.00 a copy. This low combination price of $2.10 for the Calendar with Christian Herald a full year (52 fine issues) would be impossible if the Calendars were printed by the thousand instead of by the million (3,500,000 Scripture Text Calendars sold last year). For Canada add 50c a year extra to cover postage. SPECIAL-Two Christian Herald Subscriptions for Christmas Gifts-Only $3.00
