HAND That's the natural thing to do when you need help. When your hand is extended toward us, we place in it, Free, our 200 page book. Every one is apt to be interested in the description of the means by which a friend has had his health restored.

This book is just that--500 times multiplied; all told in the very words of real and reliable folks; people with “a local habitation and a name."

One other thing; this book is not of interest to those only who feel that their case is serious; it contains the witness of many over-taxed and run-down people to the fact that Drs. Starkey & Palen's COMPOUND OXYGEN has been to them the one thing needful to put them on the right side of the line of health and happiness.

Will you hold out your hand? Help is yours for the asking. DRS. STARKEY & PALEN, No. 1529 Arch St., Philadelphia, Pa. 120 Sutter St., San Francisco, Cal. 58 Church St., Toronto, Canada.

The One-Hoss Shay

T was a happy idea

of the publishers to put together in one

volume three poems With its Companion Poems

which are among the How the Old Horse Won the Bet

best of Dr. Holmes's &

humorous ballads, and The Broomstick Train

a no less happy idea By Oliver Wendell Holmes

to employ Mr. Howard With 62 Illustrations by

Pyle to illustrate them. Howard Pyle

It is not necessary In leather binding from designs of

to say anything about

such well-known Mrs. Whitman

poems as “The One 16mo, $1.50

Hoss Shay” and “How the Old Horse

Won the Bet,” but a word may be said about “The Broomstick Train, or, The Return of the Witches." "The Broomstick Train" is nothing less than an electric car, and Dr. Holmes represents the Salem witches, long imprisoned in a rather disagreeable locality, as having at last escaped, and been put to practical use by running the electric train; their broomsticks being alone visible.

All the poems picture precisely that period which Mr. Pyle excels in illustrating. The designs, which ornament almost every page, are in his very best vein. They are always humorous, never farcical, and his attention to detail does not detract from the general telling effect. His country, racing, and sporting scenes in “The One-Hoss Shay" and "How the Old Horse Won the Bet," are in every way inimitable, and remind one of Mr. Randolph Caldecott in his very best moments. The "Broomstick Train” is very properly treated in a more ideal manner than are the other poems.

The book is one that we take up again and again, to enjoy ourselves, or to laugh over with others. Doctor Holmes has written a clever preface to the volume; and the binding has an old-time flavor, in accord with the poems and illustrations within it.
