Husband 'My dear, our boy Kobsrt graduates from the public schools very soon, you know. Uave
you thought what he had bsst do thee.'"
Wife "Well, John, I'd ever sr. much like to send him to college if you think you could afford it."
Husband "I'm afraid that is out of the question, my dear. Do you know that it would cost us at
the very le. st a year for him at any good college .'''
"Goodness, as much as that? Of course, we can't send him. Dnt 1 do wan t to give him a good start
in the world, and I don't think a public school education is euoutjh tj equip him for the battle of life."
Husband "No, it ia not today, when education is so general. Now, I've been set a thinking by an
advertisement 1 saw in THE TRIBUNE the other day, and that is why 1 brought up tho subject tonight
The trouble is. I tbiuk, that most youue persons stumble into buaiueiB, are thrown into it by accident cr
necessity, or are drawn into it by misguided ambi'ion or perverted fancy, without any serious thought as to
their real fitness for it. When the years for burning the theory aud practice ot their trade or profession
aro passed tbey often awako with regret and dismay to the fact that thsy have not only mide a mistake in
their selection, but have wasted the precious years of early manhood uyon a wrong pursuit.
"Now, the chief thing for our boy's buc cess in life is not education as much as PROPER EDUCA
TION that is, education along the line of his imtoral bent It's a year or t-.v. before lie craduatef, I'm
goinc to give him an epportunity of doing a little study at Lome during this time. I was looking at THE

very possible sul ject at bis band, and it is the most reliable information in the world. Whatever his nat
ural teut is, he can find proper development for it in this Encyclopedia, whether it's the law, mechanics,
engineering, literature or any of the arts and sciences. I think when ha is reedy to railu'it w will all
have made up our minds what he is best fitted for by his use of tbese books. B?si lss, thi?re hi will fin 1 the
life stories of all the great men of tbe past, and he will kuow of their rlforts, their struggles and their suc
cesses, and he in ay have a better and more serious view of life. These books have in tbetu all tiie instruc
tion he can get in a college education. Honestly, THE TRIBUNE has given as a great opportunity Now,,
my dear, what do you think of my scheme .''
Wife "It's just splendid, John; but what will the books cost:''
Husband -"Why, that is the most mrrrising part of it. We cau get them for only ten cents a day.
Just think ot it. "
On payment of $4.50 the entire 25 vols, will be sent, the balance to be paid in
monthly payments of $5; or on payment of $3, the first twelve volumes will ba
