ALL QUESTIONS ANSWERED.
A Rsferenoe Library Within Etay Reach
Everyono who reads, everyone who
mingles iu society, is constantly meet
ing wih allusions to subjects with
which he needs and desires further in
formation. In conversation, in trade,
in professional life, on the farm, in the
family, questions are constantly aris
ing which no man, whether well read
or not, can always satisfactorily an
swer. If the facilitiei for reference
ar at hand they are consulted, and
not only is curiosity gratified,
but bia stock of knowledge
is increased, and perhaps infor
mation is gained and ideas sng
gested that will directly contribute to
the success of the party concerned.
And how are these facilities for refer
ence to bo bad? How are the millions
to procure this library? How are they
to obtain the means of informing them
selves with respect to persons and
places, on questions of art and science,
religion and politics, literature and phil
osophy, commerce and manufacture?
How can the workingman hope to
bring within his reach the whole circle
of sciences and other points of human
knowledge that has developed up to
the present day?
The Encyclopedia Britannica answers
all of these questions and can now be
procured at less than one-fourth th
regular price, and at the unheard of
rate of 10 cents a day.
For the convenience of thoie busily
engaged during the day, The Tribune

looking over the volumes, even though
yon do not care to purchase. Or drop

any part of the city for examination
free, or the full set of twenty-five
volumes can be secured for a limited
time at $1.98 per volume, on easy

be continued indefinitely. You mean

TROUBLE AHEAD FOR ROBERTSON.
May Conduct a Four Month's Campaign
in This Viflnity.
The Pittston Gazette publishes the
following: "It will interest a great
many people to learn that there is a
possibility of the great evangolists,
Moody and Whittle, coming to this
neighborhood to conduct a great religi
ous campaign during the coming sum
mer. Last fall severul of the Chris
tian workeri of Pitlston, while in Chi
cago, broached the subject to Mr.
Whittle, aud it was received with
favor by him,
"Since then some correspondence has
passed between Mr. Whittle and the
people here, and a few days ago the
Rev. T. W. Swan received a letter
which made a definite offer to the
Christian leaders here. Mr. Moody
says that he in willing to corns to the
Wyomiug Valley and conduct a four
months' campaign during June, July,
Angu3t and September, providing tiio
Cbnrotljpeople aud business men raise
sufficient funds to purchase a tent ca
pable of seating 3,(1(10 people The idea
is to spend a few weeks in each of the
principal towns of the valley.
''.Mr. Moody says that heeannot prom
ise to be here every day during the
four months, bnt he will take charge
of the meeting?, he her the greater
part of the time aud attend to the work
of procuring evangelists and singers
for the meetings. Mr. Whittle says
that he will surely join Mr. Moody in
the work for one month, and longer if
his health permits. One very import
ant requirement of Mr. Moody is that
all the pastors concur in the call, and
it is likely that some action will be ta
ken shortly to got the clergymen to
gether for a discussion of the matter. "
