When a man was fixed in that wy
and had a wife, a pig or two a ad a
cow, he felt more independent that)
any kiDg upon bis throne. As time
rolled on the moet c the homes! oadi
enlarge! info large farms on which
everything for the raaintfficance of
tha family and its help was predac
cd even to the eugar wbuVu wa3 pro
duced from maple trees. All kinds
of tradesmen settled at conveaitnt

Blackenuirbs, coopers, Khoe-ruukeri?,
clock-iaitkers,- furnitnre-makerp, dis
tillers, hht makers, farnace and forge
tueii, graiD cycle and grain crudfl
oiakers. The iron makers Kld their
iron to the blacksmiths and they
inad e toob, implements and ail the
hardware that waa ths-u required.
Now corporations furnish almost ev
f rytbiog in the way of iron things,
and the occupation of t!;e blacksmith
isalmfist eotirfily gone, except to
shoe horse?, and the smith uo longer
wakes horse shc?s and cails. Tua
carpenter nw bays ulujost every
thing, 6isb, foorp, worked flooring,
and if ho chnoars morticed frame
work, and ail be has to do is to put
tho lioi-eo together. Tho farmer
slaughtered bis own cattlf; the local
lancer tanned th hide?; tbrj local
shf-erDakerrrtade the shoes. Now he
bjys his shoes readv made. The
! flaece from his sheep and the tiax
from hi-t farm was span into yarn hy
his family and woven into cloth for
clolhing and bed clothing, &c, by the
local weaver. Now he buys his
clothing ready made. The pewipg
used to be done with a penny needle.
Now it ia done by an expensive co-operation

The year 189G closed with more

The failures were chiefly in the west,

k New Eight-volume En
cyclopaedia At Aljcat Your Own Price,
Every one who ha.? had occasion to
consult the cumbersome old encyclo
paedias for Borne needed information,
cCi'cctuiilly concealed in some long article,
will he glad to know of tho appearance
of a new general reference work built
along different lines, so tKat any cliild
viho con roadana? successfully consult
!t ' ' r
Such a work is The 2ew Standard
American Encyclopa-.lia in eight large
quarto volumes, and which embraces
the substance of all the other encyclo
pedias, besides a very largo amount of
new r.p-to-dato matter none of them
contain. It introduces a vast number
cf now words, name, facts, ideas, in
vention!1, methods and developments.
It treats, In all, over C0.0O0 topics,
vhich ii from 0,000 to 10,000 more thaa
an7 other work. Tho publishers of the
".Standard American"' have also lavishly
embellished the new work. The:, are
over 3,500 illustrations, which over
every conceivable subject, lending rxv
Interest to tho descriptions, and forming
a succession of pleading surprises. It also
contains over 300 colored mav8, charts,
and diagrams, and constitutes a com
plete atlas of tho world such as no ether
encyclopedia lias undertaken to present.
This feature will be found of the highest
value in tha education of the young, for
the pictures and colored maps will liavo
r. distinct fascination for them, ud thu
7rove an important iucentivo to roailin
The professional or business mp.n,
whose time is money; tho teacher, who
is called upon to at once answer all surra
or questions; the toiling student aud
inquiring scholar, at home or the !:-s!s,
will fmd in tho r.w v. cri tlio moot use
ful and practical library in tho world ior
nu'ck and rady icfcrei-cc ?il sub
kets. Ono who ovrr.s it v. ii! posscii
the eciuivalent of a Ecoro of !Jicr r
erenre books which wo; VI cot n.a.y
times the price of th'x.-f.
O Another feature in whkh the new
work stands absolutely alone, i3 in its
very full appendixes, which cmbrico
over 100 subdivisions, including a H:o
graphical Dictionary, a Dictionary of
Technical Term3, a Gazcteor of the
United States, Presidential Elections in
tho United States, Religious Summaries,
Statu and Territorial Election Statistics,
Statistics of the population of the world,
end a veritable mine of information on
thousands of subjects of universal inter
est and importance.
But it is in its treatment of recent
subjects that the Standard American
will be found of paramount valu3. Ali
other encyclopedias are from five to ten
years old, and aro silent regarding hun
dreds of topics that every reference work
should contain. Such, for Instance, aa
"The X-Ray," "Argon," "Horseless
Carriages," "Tho Atlanta Exposition,"
"Color Photography," etc., etc. It also
gives biographies of hundreds of people
who have lately become famous, such as
Trof. Roentgen, discoverer of the "X
Bay," Ian Uacl&ren, Dr. Nansen, the
cspiorer, Rudyard Kipling, etc., etc.,
On account of its lateness in all these
matters, as well as its accuracy, it has
become the standard in Schools, Col
leges, 1 Courts, Public Libraries, and
wherever important questions come np
It would therefore seem that no pro
fessional man, artisan, mechanic, teacher,
pupil, or farmer, can well afford to be
without this most useful, practical and
latest of all encyclopaedias, especially as
its price has been so arranged as to
make the work a great bargain, and
render its possession possible to almost
any one who earnestly desires to own it.

work and hoTtr to seenra it at practically
