"Some  Record  There  Must  Be" 


Some  record  of  appreciation  for  the  many  courtesies  of  friends  and 
customers  during  the  past  year. 

Some  record  of  delight  at  the  increased  demand  for  GOODALL'S 
PLAYING  CARDS  in  1905. 

Some  record  of  gratification  for  the  fact  that  GOODALL'S  PLAY- 
ING  CARDS  have  always  given  satisfaction. 

Some  record  of  avowal  that  GOODALL'S  PLAYING  CARDS  will 
continue  to  be  the  best. 

Some  record  of  results  that  it  will  pay  you  to  handle  GOODALL'S 
PLAYING  CARDS. 

Several  new   designs  out  this  year. 
Trade  supplied  through  the  Wholesale

OFF    FOR     ANOTHER     YEAR 


AND  still  we  grow  !  In  the  year  1903  this  paper 
gave  its  readers  a  volume  of  twelve  numbers, 
totalling  354  pages.  In  the  year  1904,  a  volume 
of  thirteen  numbers  was  provided,  there  being  an  extra 
issue  on  account  of  the  Toronto  fire,  and  the  total  of 
pages  was  run  up  to  500.  Last  year,  twelve  numbers 
were  issued  with  a  total  of  568  pages.  So  in  tabular 
form  our  growth  looks  like  this  : 

1903 12  issues 354  pages 

1904 13  issues 500  pages 

1905 12  issues 568  pages 

Naturally  much  of  this  increase  has  been  occasioned 
by  the  growing  demands  of  advertisers  upon  our  space, 
but  we  have  always  gone  on  the  principle  that  increased 
advertising  patronage  demands  increased  reading  mat- 
ter, so  that  during  1905  we  gave  our  readers  more  in- 
formation and  more  illustrations  than  ever  before. 


This  month  we  have  pleasure  in  reproducing  the  in- 
terior of  J.  J.  Taylor's  store  at  Sault  Ste.  Marie. 
Though  we  have  never  seen  Mr.  Taylor's  store,  traveling 
men  pronounce  it  to  be  one  of  the  best  in  Western  Can- 
ada, and  that  is  saying  a  good  deal.  Next  month  we 
will  show  pictures  of  Mr.  R.  A.  J.  Little's  store  in 
Oshawa,  and  in  following  months  other  stores  have  been 
arranged  for.  We  hope  to  be  able  to  illustrate  a  few  of 
the  stores  in  the  Maritime  Provinces  during  the  year. 
Several  of  these  places  of  business  were  inspected  last 
Summer  by  a  member  of  our  editorial  staff,  who  found 
them  most  interesting.  At  the  opening  of  the  year,  let 
us  repeat  our  offer  to  illustrate  any  up-to-date  store  in 
Canada. 

•-.  • 

In  the  next  Bookseller  and  Stationer  we  will  pub- 
lish an  article  which  we  have  secured  from  an  advertis- 
ing specialist,  on  the  power  of  the  small  advertisement. 
The  lessons  it  contains  should  be  taken  to  heart  by 
many  of  our  readers.  We  all  know  how  few  booksellers 
advertise;  some  because  they  do  not  believe  in  it,  others 
because  they  imagine  they  cannot  afford  it.  We  use  the 
word  imagine  advisedly.  If  the  bookseller  would  cease 
looking  upon  advertising  as  an  out-and-out  expenditure, 
and  rather  view  it  as  an  excellent  investment,  he  would 
not  be  so  diffident  about  it.  Money  put  into  advertising 
— the  proper  kind  of  advertising — is   an   investment   that 


pays  a  good  dividend.  Learn  this  lesson  and  then  begin. 
As  our  instructor  shows,  the  investment  need  not  be 
large.  The  small  advertisement  can  be  made  to  pay  its 
dividend  as  well  as  the  large  one.  For  brain  power  the 
small  man  often  surpasses  the  big  man.  The  New  Year 
is  an  excellent  time  to  begin  this  small  advertising.  If 
you  have  any  questions  to  ask  do  not  hesitate  to  write 
to  us. 

*  *  * 

There  are  a  few  good  points  to  be  found  this  month 
in  our  editorial  pages.  Perhaps,  reader,  you  are  not 
accustomed  to  read  these  pages,  deeming  them  to  con- 
sist of  mere  dryasdust  platitudes.  There  you  are 
wrong.  We  endeavor  to  make  the  editorial  pages  the 
kernel  of  the  whole  paper,  and  every  month  some  sug- 
gestion is  to  be  foun'd  there  that  would  do  your  business 
good.  But  be  this  as  it  may,  we  have  started  the  year 
with  an  appeal  to  our  readers  to  get  out  of  the  rut  and 
do  things. 

Have  you  noticed  how  the  bankers  are  doing  business 
now  ?  They  no  longer  are  content  to  sit  behind  their 
wickets  and  wait  for  customers.  No,  they  advertise, 
they  canvas,  they  lobby,  and  they  work  for  business  in 
a  way  that  the  old-timers  regard  as  scandalous. 

Have  you  watched  the  local  printer  ?  He  doesn't 
wait  in  his  office  for  the  jobs  to  come  in,  like  he  used  to 
do  not  so  long  ago.  No,  he  puts  on  his  coat  and  scur- 
ries round  town,  leaving  blotters  here  and  there,  offering 
suggestions  and  making  work  come  to  him. 

The  bookseller  and  stationer  should  wake  up  and  do 
likewise.  Let  him  be  a  miniature  wholesaler,  with  a 
local  traveling  staff.  Blank  books  to-day  among  the 
business  men,  greeting  cards  before  Christmas,  books 
among  the  literary  people — there  are  great  chances  on 
every  hand. 

*  .  • 

We  would  like  to  hear  from  our  readers  now  and

worth  writing  about.  But  others  may  be  suffering  from

A.  C.  McClurg  &  Co.,  Chicago. 

A.  C.  McClurg  &  Co.,  of  Chicago,  are  planning  for 
l!)0(i  a  very  interesting  list  of  books,  covering  a  very 
diversified  field.  Their  plans  for  fiction  during  1900  in- 
clude a  historical  romance  entitled  "Nicanor  :  Teller  of 
Tales,"  which  will  be  brought  out  as  a  companion  volume 
to  their  successful  volume,  "For  the  White  Christ,"  with 
pictures  in  full  color  and  decorations  by  the  Kinneys,  who 
have  become  celebrated  the  country  over  for  their  ability 
to  produce  rich  and  striking  illustrations.  Also  "For  the 
Soul  of  Rafael,"  a  picturesque  and  dramatic  story  of  an 
old  Spanish  mission  town  of  Southern  California,  by 
Marah  Ellis  Ryan,  which  will  have  some  altogether  un- 
usual and  unique  photographic  illustrations  of  a  kind  sel- 
dom hitherto  used  for  book  illustrations.  Also  a  new 
novel  of  Irish  life  by  Katharine  Tynan,  author  of  "The 
Dear  Irish  Girl,"  "A  Daughter  of  the  Fields,"  "Julia," 
etc.,  who  can  always  be  counted  on  for  a  delightful  story, 
with  four  delicate  and  graceful  illustrations  from  pen  and 
ink   drawings  by  George   Alfred  Williams. 

Those  who  have  enjoyed  Randall  Danish's  remarkably 
popular  works  will  be  interested  to  learn  that  there  will 
be  a  new  story  by  this  author  in  which  the  Custer  massa- 
cre will  provide  the  dramatic  climax  ;  and  there  will  be  a 
sombre  and  powerful  tale  of  mediaeval  Italy,  entitled 
"Ridolfo  :  The  Coming  of  the  Dawn,"  by  Kgerton  Wil- 
liams, who  has  already  secured  flattering  recognition  for 
his  charming  book,  "Hill  Towns  of  Italy"  ;  and  a  bril- 
liant character  novel  of  English  social  life  by  Netta 
Syrett,  called  "The  Day's  Journey,"  with  four  illustra- 
tions by   Jay   Ilambidge. 

The  Macmillan  Company  of  Canada,    Limited. 

Fortunately  for  the  Macmillan  Company,  'their  stock 
of  books  had  not  been  received  when  the  company's 
premises  were  damaged  by  the  lire  in  the  Oxford  Press 
building.    Only    the  office  furniture   was  destroyed. 

At  present  the  manager,  Mr.  Frank  Wise,  is  busy 
transferring  to  his  office  the  stock  of  titles  carried  up  to 
the  present  time  by  Morang  &  Company,  Limited.  Ship- 
ments of  books  from  England  are  arriving  daily 
and  Mr.  Wise  will  soon  have  a  long  list  of  titles  in  stock. 
He  will  cover  the  trade  early  this  Spring. 
Tre  Westminster  Company. 

The  Westminster  Company  have  in  the  press  a  relig- 
ious work  by  the  young  Montreal  divine,  Rev.  John 
MacKay.  The  book  is  called  "Religion,  as  Friendship 
with  God."  It  is  pronounced  an  admirable  piece  of  writ- 
ing, throwing  an  entirely  new  light  on  a  time-worn  sub- 
ject. 

A  new  book  by  Marian  Keith,  author  of  "Duncan  Po- 
lite," will  be  issued  in  February  by  the  Westminster 
Company.  It  is  entitled  "The  Silver  Maple."  Admirers 
of  the  first-named  book  will  find  "The  Silver  Maple"  even 
better  than  that  clever  story. 

McLeod  &  Allen. 
By   arrangement  with  the  English  publishers,   McLeod 
&   Allen  will   shortly    bring    out  a   Canadian  edition    of 


"Divine  Fire,"  by  May  Sinclair.  This  book  has  had  a  re- 
markable run  both  in  Britain  and  the  United  States,  and 
a  Canadian  edition  at  $1.25  should  be  welcome. 

McLeod  &  Allen  intend  to  push  vigorously  the  sale  of 
"The  House  of  One  Thousand  Candles,"  by  Meredith 
Nicholson.  This  book  came  out  too  near  the  holiday  sea- 
son to  have  justice  done  to  its  merits.  It  should  have  a 
splendid  sale,  as  it  is  certainly  a  most  readable  book. 
$1.25  cloth  and  75  cents  paper. 

Poole  Publishing  Company. 

This  month  the  Poole  Publishing  Company  will  bring 
out  a  Canadian  edition  of  "A  Prince  of  Lovers,"  by  Sir 
Wm.   Magnay,   in  a  cloth  binding  at  $1.25. 

About  February  1  the  Poole  Publishing  Company  will 
probably  place  on  the  market  an  edition  of  "The  Long 
Arm,"  by  Samuel  M.  Gardenhire.  They  expect  a  heavy 
demand  for  this  book. 

"The  Conquest  of  Canaan,"  by  Booth  Tarkington,  has 
been  a  good  proposition  on  the  Canadian  market  and  it 
is  still  selling  well. 

The  Musson  Book  Company,  Limited. 

The  Musson  Book  Co.,  Limited,  of  Toronto,  have 
opened  up  an  office  in  London,  England,  at  Mansion 
House,  Queen  Victoria  street. 

A  Canadian  edition  of  Guy  Thome's  next  novel,  the 
title  of  which  will  be  "It  Was  First  Ordained,"  is  in 
preparation  by  the  Musson  Book  Company.  Mr.  Thorne 
in  dealing  with  social  questions  is  one  of  the  strongest 
writers  in  the  English-speaking  world.  His  first  book, 
"When  it  Was  Dark,"  is  still  very  popular,  and  "It  Was 
First  Ordained"  will  be  one  of  the  leaders  for  1906.  It 
will  be  ready  about  the  first  of  April. 

L.  C.  Page  &  Company,  Boston. 

L.  C.  Page  &  Company's  first  publication  for  190G 
will  be  "The  Passenger  from  Calais,"  a  detective  story 
by  Arthur  Griffith,  which  will  be  issued  about  January 
1(J.  This  will  be  followed  on  February  1  by  Morley  Rob- 
erts' new  novel,  "The  Idlers."  "The  Idlers"  has  already 
appeared  in  England,  where  it  is  receiving  much  atten- 
tion. Its  exposition  of  the  smart  set  of  London  is  com- 
pared to  Mrs.  Wharton's  treatment  of  the  American  social 
class  of  the  same  name,  in  her  "House  of  Mirth." 
William  Briggs. 

Mrs.  Henshaw's  superb  work  on  the  "Mountain  Wild 
Flowers  of  Canada"  is  now  in  course  of  issue  by  William 
Briggs  and  will  be  ready  in  time  for  the  travelers  to 
carry  on  their  Spring  trips.  Mrs.  Henshaw  has  had  the 
good  fortune  to  secure  endorsation  for  her  work  from  the 
Government  botanists,  Prof.  Macoun  and  Dr.  Fletcher. 
In  a  letter  for  inclusion  with  the  volume  Prof.  Macoun 
says  :  "It  was  the  one  book  needed.  That  the  work 
should  have  been  done  as  you  have  done  it  is  more  than  I 
could  have  hoped.  The  beauty  of  the  photographs,  the  ab- 
solute correctness  of  the  grouping  of  the  flowers,  the 
concise  and  yet  complete  descriptions  make  it  easy  even 
for  the  visitor  of  a  day  to  identify  all  the  plants  he  is 
likely  to  see."  It  is  gratifying  to  know  that  in  competi- 
tion with  leading  American  engravers  the  Grip  Company 
of  Toronto  secured  the  order  for  the  half  tone  engravings 
(100  full-page  plain  and  a  colored  frontispiece),  both  as 
regards  quality  of  work  and  price.  A  handsome  cover  de- 
sign has  been  made 'for  the  book  by  Mr.  C.  W.  Jeffreys. 
It  will  retail  at  $2  net. 

The  forthcoming  reprint  of  Mrs.  Traill's  valuable 
work,  "Studies  of  Plant  Life  in  Canada,"  (William 
Briggs)  will  be  embellished  with  20  full-page  engravings, 
reproductions  of  the  exquisite  and  marvellously  accurate 
paintings  of  Mrs.   Agnes  Chamberlin.     Eight  of  these  will

be  reproduced  in  colors.  The  book  will  be  one  to  be 
prized  by  lovers  of  the  wild  flowers.  Mrs.  Traill's  de- 
scriptions are  most  charming  and  Mrs.  Chamberlin's 
drawings  are  not  only  accurate  but  exceedingly  beautiful. 
The  work  has  the  endorsation  of  Prof.  Macoun  and  Dr. 
Fletcher,  the  Government,  botanists,  and  will  be  useful  to 
students  of  botany. 

William  Briggs  will  have  several  notable  volumes  on 
his  list  for  1906.  Among  these  are  new  novels  by  Sir 
conan  Doyle,  S.  R.  Crockett,  Mrs.  Humphry  Ward, 
Marie  Corelli,  Ellen  Thorneycroft  Fowler,  Ileadon  Hill, 
Guy  Thome,  and  other  popular  writers,  announcement  of 
date  of  issue  of  which  will  be  made  in  due  time. 

The  reviewers  are  giving  high  praise  to  the  verse  in 
both  Wilfred  Campbell's  and  Isabella  Valancy  Crawford's 
recently    published   volumes.     It   is  matter   of  congratula- 


Miscellaneous.

tion  that  our  young  country  can  claim  these  books  as 
her  own.  Both  are  notable  volumes  in  the'  literature  of 
poetry.  Both  should  find  their  way  into  Canadian  homes 
from  Atlantic  to  Pacific  to  have  a  place  in  the  little 
"corner  bookshelf"  of  special  favorites.  Both  have  the 
rare  stamp  of  genius  and  are  distinctly  Canadian.  Miss 
Crawford's  "Canada  to  England"  and  "The  Rose  of  a 
Nation's  Thanks,"  and  Campbell's  "Canada,"  "England," 
"Crowning  of  Empire,"  etc.,  are  noble  poems,  stirring 
the  pulse  of  the  patriot  like  a  bugle  call. 

William  Briggs  will  publish  a  Canadian  edition  of 
"Vikings  of  the  Pacific,"  Agnes  C.  Laut's  new  book,  a 
valuable  contribution  to  the  history  of  the*  west  detailing 
the  doings  of  the  early  navigators,  Spanish,  Russian  and 
English,  on  the  Pacific  coast.  The  work  will  make  a  fine 
companion  volume  to  "Pathfinders  of  the  West."

biographical  notice  of  Montaigne  throws  an  interesting 
light  on  his  life.  As  usual,  the  books  come  in  cloth  or 
leather  bindings  at  two  and  three  shillings,  respectively. 
They  are  of  a  conveniently  small  size,  and  yet  not  too 
small  to  be  unsuitable  for  the   library   shelf.

BEVERIDGE,  ALBERT  J.— "The  Young  Man  and  the 
World."  New  York  :  D.  Appleton  &  Company.  Cloth, 
$1.50  net.  Senator  Beveridge  is  himself  a  young  man 
and  he  understands  his  audience  thoroughly.  His  book 
is  a  modern  "Self  Help,"  teaching  a  lofty  morality 
and  an  honest  ambition.  It  is  illuminated  with  a  store 
of  literary  allusions,  that  add  to  the  charm  of  the 
style.  A  number  of  aspects  of  the  question  are  dis- 
cussed— the  old  home,  the  college,  the  new  home,  pub- 
lic speaking,   the  young  man  and  the  nation,  etc. 

CAMPBELL,  WILFRED.— "Collected  Poems."  Toronto  : 
William  Briggs.  Cloth,  $1.50.  Of  the  numerous  band 
of  contemporary  Canadian  poets,  none  occupies  a  more 
representative  position  than  Campbell.  His  verse, 
which  is  here  collected  for  the  first  time  into  a  single 
volume,  breathes  a  lofty  patriotism  and  an  ardent  love 
of  nature  that  gives  a  distinction  to  his  writing.  His 
dramatic  gift  is  also  notable  and  some  of  his  drama- 
tic verse  is  of  a  high  order  of  merit,  giving  indication 
of  still  better  things  to  come.  It  is  a  pleasure  to 
have  so  choice  a  Canadian  edition  of  a  Canadian  poet. 

COBB,  BENJAMIN  F— "Business  Philosophy."  New 
York  :  Thomas  Y.  Crowell  &  Co.  Cloth,  $1.20  net. 
This  admirable  book  needs  to  be  read  to  be  appre- 
ciated. The  philosophy  it  contains  is  not  of  the  dry 
scholastic  variety,  but  is  clever,  keen  and  practical. 
The  author  is  a  business  man,  who  has  passed  through 
a  variety  of  experiences,  and  his  advice  is  full  of 
sound  common  sense,  interspersed  with  illustrations 
that  every  business  man,  big  or  small,  can  appreciate. 
This  book  should  be  read  and  re-read  by  every  man  of 
affairs. 

GRAHAM,  E.  MAUD.  —  "A  Canadian  Girl  in  South 
Africa."  Toronto  :  William  Brig-gs.  Cloth,  $1.00. 
Miss  Graham  was  one  of  the  Canadian  teachers  who 
went  to  South  Africa  in  1902  to  instruct  the  young 
Boer  children  in  the  concentration  camps.  In  this  book 
she  gives  a  narrative  of  the  trip  to  South  Africa  and. 
her  experiences  there.  Her  observations  of  men  and 
things  are  clever  and  amusing  and  her  story  reads 
with  all  the  freshness  and  charm  of  a  good  novel.  The 
.  many  illustrations  scattered  through  the  book  add 
much  to  its  value. 

LONG,  JOHN  LUTHER— "Seffy."  Indianapolis  :  The 
Bobbs-Merrill  Company.  Cloth,  decorated  pages  and 
illustrations,  $1.50.  Seffy's  love  story  was  full  of 
troubles.  He  was  a  lovable  chap,  with  his  curly  yel- 
low hair,  and  Sally,  the  girl  he  adored,  was  a  beauty 
and  liked  him,  but  then  the  ways  of  the  Pennsylvania 
Dutch  were  against  him  and  because  he  was  slow  his 
rival  ousted  him  and  married  Sally.  But  even  then 
there  was  hope  for  poor  Seffy  and  in  the  end  he  was 
able  to  gratify  his  father's  cherished  wish.  The  story 
is  cleverly  written  and  the  colored  illustrations  add 
much  to  its  charm. 

MERTINS,  GUSTAVE  FREDERICK.— "The  Storm  Sig- 
nal." Indianapolis  :  The  Bobbs-Merrill  Company. 
Cloth,  $1.50.  Despite  a  few  defects  in  the  working  out 
of  the  plot,  this  book  can  truthfully.be  pronounced  a 
remarkable  novel.  Its  main  theme  is  the  negro  prob- 
lem in  the  southern  states  and  the  storm  signal  de- 
notes the  menace  that  is   threatening   American  civil- 


ization. As  a  picture  of  the  life  and  character  of  the 
negro  to-day,  the  book  is  powerful.  Some  scenes 
reach  a  height  of  passion  that  thrills  the  reader.  Sev- 
eral whites  are  introduced  into  the  story  and  the  love 
interest  worked  out  among  them  gives  a  contrasting 
picture  to  the  villainies  of  the  blacks. 

SAINT  MAUR,  KATE  V.— "A  Self-Supporting  Home." 
New  York  :  The  Macmillan  Company.  Cloth,  illus- 
trated, $1.75.  This  is  a  practical  book,  the  result  of 
several  years'  experience.  The  writer  had  been  a  city 
woman,  striving  to  keep  up  a  home  for  her  husband  on 
a  small  allowance.  She  conceived  the  happy  idea  of 
taking  a  small  farm  out  in  the  country  and  going  in 
for  poultry  raising,  dairying,  etc.  By  this  means  she 
was  able  to  establish  a  self-supporting  home.  The 
book  is  full  of  information  and  sound  advice  on  the 
various  problems  that  confront  the  person  who  wishes 
to  go  in  for  this  kind  of  life. 

SANGSTER,  MARGARET  E.— "Radiant  Motherhood." 
Indianapolis  :  The  Bobbs-Merrill  Company.  Cloth, 
$1.50.  This  is  a  book  to  be  highly  recommended  to 
mothers  both  old  and  young.  It  is  a  sympathetic 
study  of  the  problems  that  confront  the  mother. 
Divided  into  chapters,  each  one  is  found  to  treat  of 
some  important  phase.  There  are  "The  Child  and 
Religious  Training,"  "The  Children  in  School,"  "Out- 
door Life  and  Pets,"  "Manners,"  "Home  Reading," 
and  many  more.  Mrs.  Sangster  knows  her  theme  and 
writes  down  much  good  advice,  which,  if  followed,  will 
make  the  coming  generation  a  blessing.

TIONAL S.  S.  LESSONS  FOR  1906.  637  pages.  In. 
dianapolis  :  The  Bobbs-Merrill  Company.  This  splen- 
did large  volume  is  to  be  the  first  of  a  series,  designed 
to  be  helpful  to  the  Sabbath  school  teacher  in  coming 
years.  The  most  advanced  methods  of  training  the 
young  are  introduced  and  the  system  followed  is  de- 
signed to  secure  the  very  best  results.  In  each  lesson, 
after  explaining  the  text  and  giving  suggestive 
thoughts  from  helpful  writers,  suggestions  for  teach- 
ing the  lesson  are  given,  with  illustrative  thoughts 
and  sentence  sermons.  Then  in  order  to  emphasize  the 
lesson,  the  personal  thought  is  introduced  and  subjects 
for  discussion  are  suggested.  The  geography  of  Pales- 
tine is  explained  and  general  information  about  the 
Bible  is  given. 

VAN,  VORST,  MARIE— "Miss  Desmond."  New  York  : 
The  Macmillan  Company.  Cloth,  $1.50.  A  modern 
character  novel,  with  the  scene  laid  in  Southern 
France.  Miss  Desmond,  a  puritan  New  Englander,  is 
brought  by  circumstances  into  the  gay  life  of  the  old 
world  and  there  gradually  her  narrow  vision  is  en- 
larged. She  is  very  beautiful  and  natural,  and  soon 
men  begin  to  pay  homage  to  her.  Her  love  story  is 
prettily  and  sympathetically  told  and  the  development 
of  her  character  and  outlook  is  carefully  worked  out. 

WATSON,  H.  B.  MARRIOTT— "Twisted  Eglantine." 
New  York  :  D.  Appleton  <fo  Company.  Cloth,  $1.50. 
When  that  famous  court  gallant,  Sir  Piers  Blakiston, 
of  Hone,  after  being  storm-tossed  in  the  Solent,  land- 
ed one  evening  in  the  harbor  of  Lymington,  he  was 
plunged  by  fate  into  an  unexpected  love  affair  that  al- 
most proved  his  undoing.  He  who  had  successfully 
conquered  the  affections  of  many  a  court  beauty  was 
compelled  to  bite  the  dust  by  the  pretty  country  girl, 
Barbara  Garraway.  The  book  is  full  of  the  intrigues 
by  which  he  strove  to  win  her  love,  but  she  had  virtue 
and  a  worthy  lover  on  her  side  and  withstood  all  his 
advances.  The  picture  which  the  author  has  drawn  of 
Sir  Piers  is  a  masterpiece.

THE  OXFORD  PRESS  VISITED  BY  FIRE. 

HOW  sudden,  rapid  and  complete  is  the  devastation  of 
fire  was  well  illustrated  on  the  morning  of  Wednes- 
day, December  27,  when  the  handsome  warehouse 
and  show  room  of  the  Oxford  Press  at  25-27  Richmond 
street  west,  Toronto,  were  visited  by  the  destroyer  and 
$30,000  worth  of  books  completely  ruined,  all  inside  an 
hour.  The  fire  originated  shortly  before  eight  o'clock 
from  some  undiscovered  source  and  soon  gained  control  of 
the  entire  ground  floor,  penetrating,  to  the  front  of  the 
first  floor  as   well. 

By  quick  work  on  the  part  of  the  salvage  corps,  the 
stock  stored  in  the  basement  was  covered  over  before  any 
damage  had  been   done  by   water,   but  everything  on   the 


ground  floor  was  destroyed,  including  all  the  finer  stock. 
This  comprised  a  valuable  supply  of  Bibles,  prayer  books, 
hymn  books,  and  beautifully  bound  Oxford  editions  of  the 
poets,  novelists,  etc.,  besides  a  stock  of  fine  note  paper, 
and  all  the  office  fittings.  A  large  number  of  Revel] 
books,  for  which  the  Oxford  Press  are  agents,  were  also 
destroyed.  The  building  and  stock  were  entirely  insured. 
Mr.  S.  B.  Gundy,  the  manag-er,  immediately  opened  a 
temporary  office  on  the  second  floor  of  the  building  and 
cabled  for  a  new  stock.  Fortunately  the  samples  were 
saved  and  the  travelers  will  go  out  on  the  road  just  as 
usual  without  any  loss  of  time.  The  remodelling  of  the 
building  will  be  begun  at  once  and  the  arrangements  for 
office  accommodation,  show  rooms  and  stock  rooms  will

ABOUT  CANADIAN  AUTHORS. 

REV.  FREDERICK  GEORGE  SCOTT  spent  a  few 
days  in  Toronto  recently,  at  a  meeting  of  the  offi- 
cial committee  of  the  Anglican  church,  charged 
with  the  preparation  of  a  new  hymn  book.  Mr.  Scott 
has  not  been  cultivating  his  music  very  assiduously  of 
late,  but  has  been  doing  some  good  work,  the  better, 
perhaps,  because  of  its  not  being  forced.  Hon.  Joseph 
Chamberlain,  in  a  recent  speech,  did  Mr.  Scott  the 
honor  of  quoting  two  stanzas  from  his  "Hymn  of  Em- 
pire," a  noble  poem  well  worthy  of  a  place  by  the  side 
of  Kipling's   "Recessional."

It   seems    that    Andrew     Carnegie's    gift   of    Wilfred 
Campjbell's  collected  poems  to  his  libraries   did  not    in- 
clude the  Canadian  libraries.     This  rouses  speculation  as 


W.  L.  Mackenzie  King,  Deputy  Minister  ol  Labor  of 
the  Dominion  of  Canada,  has  written  a  volume  entitled 
"The  Secret  of  Heroism,"  as  a  memorial  to  his  assist- 
ant, Henry  Albert  Harper,  who  lost  his  life  in  an  at- 
tempt to  rescue  a  young  woman  who  had  fallen  through 
the  ice.  Although  Harper  was  yet  a  young  man  at  the 
time  of  his  death,  his  brilliant  services  to  the  Depart- 
ment of  Labor,  and  his  exceptionally  strong  and  beauti- 
ful character,  had  made  such  an  impression  that  by  pub- 
lic subscription  a  statue  was  presented  to  the  Canadian 
Government  and  unveiled  on  the  grounds  of  the  Parlia- 
ment Buildings,  Ottawa,  Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier  accepting 
the  statue  on  behalf  of  the  Government.  The  volume 
is  written  biographically,  with  extracts  from  Harper's 
writings,  and  is  intended  to  be  more  than  a  memorial — 
an  inspiration  to  young  manhood  everywhere.     The  book

to  whether  the  exception  was  due  to  the  candid  criticism 
of  the  big  millionaire  from  this  side  of  the  line,  or  be- 
cause he  took  advantage  of  the  probability  that  the 
Canadian  libraries  would  buy  the  book  for  themselves. 
Even  for  millionaires  a  penny  saved  is  a  penny  gained.

Robert  E.  Knowles,  the  Canadian  clergyman  whose 
novel,  "St.  Cuthbert's,"  has  had  a  most  flattering  sale, 
and  added  literary  laurels  to  a  name  known  all  over 
Canada  for  pulpit  eloquence,  will  be  a  guest  of  honor  at 
the  approaching  dinner  of  the  New  York  booksellers.  In 
addition  to  his  presence  there,  Dr.  Knowles  has  been

CURRENT  FEATURES. 

T  STEAD  discusses  the  new  British  Cabinet  in 
the  January  Review  of  Reviews.  There  is  a 
good  article  with  illustrations,  "Farming  as  a 
Business  Enterprise."  J.  P.  Gerrie  writes  "A  Year  of 
Canadian  Progress,"  and  Agnes  C.  Laut  takes  up  "Eng- 
land's Problem  of  the  Unemployed." 

"Out  With  a  Moving  Picture  Machine"  is  one  of  the 
most  interesting  articles  in  the  January  Cosmopolitan. 
It  is  fully  illustrated.  "Germanizing  the  World,"  by 
Charles  Edward  Russell,  in  this  number,  is  a  strong 
presentment  of  an  important  subject. 

The  publishers  announce  that  the  February  Century 
will  be  a  Mid-winter  Fiction  Number.  Dr.  S.  Weir 
Mitchell's  short  serial,  "A  Diplomatic  Adventure,"  will 
begin  its  course.  There  will  be  articles  on  "The  Presi- 
dent and  the  Railroads,"  "The  Portraits  of  Keats,"  and 
"Saving  California's  Fruit  Crop."  Mrs.  Humphry 
Ward's  serial,  "Fenwick's  Career,"  will  be  continued,  as 
will  also  Frederick  Trevor  Hill's  biography  of  "Lincoln, 
the  Lawyer." 

"Affairs  of  State,"  a  serial  by  Burton  E.  Steven- 
son, who  wrote  "The  Marathon  Mystery,"  will  begin  in 
the  March  number  of  the  Woman  at  Home. 

Among  the  live  contents  of  the  February  World's 
Work  will  be  found  "The  Marvels  of  Photography,"  with 
eight  pages  of  illustrations;  "The  Diplomatic  Masters  of 
Europe,"  "Conditions  in  Haiti,"  "The  Cotton  Mills," 
by  Arthur  Page,  "A  City's  Fight  for  Beauty,"  etc. 

In  the  January  number  of  the  London  Magazine  will 
be  found  the  first  chapters  of  an  important  serial  en- 
titled "The  Surge  of  War,"  being  memoirs  of  an  aide-de- 
camp  to  Frederick  the  Great.  This  is  attractively  illus- 
trated. There  is  also  an  interesting  interview  with  Guy 
Thome,  distinguished  as  the  author  of  "When  it  Was 
Dark." 

Arnon^  the  noteworthy  contents  of  the  current  issue 
of  Munsey's  are  "The  Jew  in  America,"  'The  Automo- 
bile in  America,"  "The  Prisoner  of  the  Vatican,"  "Eng- 
lish and  American  Journalism,"  "Lord  Curzon  of  Ked- 
dleston." 

The  January  number  of  the  Grand  Magazine  contains 
a  short  life  of  Sir  Henry  Irvine:,  a  story  by  Morley 
Roberts;  "Do  We  Take  too  Much  Exercise?"  "Traps  for 
the.  Charitable,"  "Music  in  the  United  States,"  "Is 
Disease  a  Blessing  ?"  and  a  number  of  interviews  with 
actors  and  actresses  on  "Mv  First  Appearance." 

A  new  serial  by  Stanley  J.  Weyman,  entitled  "Chip- 


pinge," begins  in  the  January  number  of  the  Cornhill. 
This  periodical  may  always  be  depended  on  for  excellent 
serials.  It  now  contains  two,  the  second  being  "Sir 
John  Constantine,"  by  A.  T.  Quiller-Couch. 

Twenty-five  years  ago,  in  January,  1881,  the  Critic 
was  born.  Since  then  the  Critic  has  grown  and  flourish- 
ed, becoming  the  literary  authority  of  America.  One  of 
the  most  notable  features  of  the  January  issue  is  a 
paper  on  Franklin,  by  the  Hon.  Joseph  H.  Choate.  There 
are  several  excellent  pictures  connected  with  Franklin's 
life. 

McClure's  Magazine,  with  its  staff  of  special  writers, 
is  unique  among  current  magazines.  At  present  Ray 
Stannard  Baker  is  contributing  a  series,  which  he  en- 
titles "The  Railroads  on  Trial."  Lincoln  Steffens  is 
writing  character  sketches  of  eminent  American  poli- 
ticians, and  William  Allen  White  is  working  along  the 
same  line.  Ida  M.  Tarbell  is  giving  attention  to  modern 
commercial  phases. 

The  special  acticles  in  the  January  Forum  are  "Fin- 
ancial Japan  After  the  War,"  "The  New  China,"  and 
"Russia's  Economic  Future."  The  various  reviews  of 
politics,  finance,  foreign  affairs,  science,  etc.,  are  most 
entertaining. 

The  complete  novelette  in  the  February  number  of 
Lippincott's  will  be  "One  Way  of  Love,"  by  Jennette 
Lee.  There  are  to  be  six  short  stories  in  this  number 
and  an  article  on  "Early  Days  in  Opera  in  America."  A 
poem  by  Ella  Wheeler  Wilcox,  entitled  "Love's  Confes- 
sions," will  also  be  a  feature. 

Short  stories  by  Edith  Wharton  and  Sir  Gilbert 
Parker  are  announced  for  publication  in  the  February 
and  March  numbers,  respectively,  of  Appleton's  Book- 
lovers  Magazine.  W.  A.  Fraser  will  contribute  an  East 
Indian  racing  story  to  the  February  number. 

A  number  of  valuable  articles  are  announced  for 
publication  in  the  February  number  of  the  World  To-day. 
A  few  of  the  best  of  these  are  "The  Origin  of  Life," 
"Japan  and  Its  New  Crisis,"  "The  Kansas  Land 
Frauds,"  "Workingmen's  Insurance,"  "The  Trolley  as  a 
Social  Factor,"  "The  New  English  Art  Club,"  "How 
Immigration  is   Stimulated,"   etc. 

Chambers's  Journal  begins  1906  with  a  serial  story 
by  Lady  Napier  of  Magdala,  entitled  "A  Stormy  Morn- 
ing."* The  January  number  presents  an  exceptionally 
good  bill  of  fare,  the  articles  being  of  a  bright  and  in- 
structive character.  Newsdealers  should  find  Cham- 
bers's a  good  seller  in  this  country. 

Norman  Duncan  contributes  a  thrilling  story  of  ice 
adventure  in  Newfoundland  to  the  February  Pall  Mall, 
entitled  "Her  Majesty's  Mail."  Another  interesting  fea- 
ture in  this  number  will  be  "Sport  on  the  Roof  of  the 
World,"  by  a  soldier-sportsman,  telling  about  a  shooting 
expedition  in  Central  Asia. 

"Sir  Nigel,"  the  new  historical  romance  by  Sir  A. 
Conan  Doyle,  began  its  serial  publication  in  the  Strand 
(English  edition)  December  issue.  It  is  not  appearing  in 
the  American  edition,  as  the  rights  have  been  sold  to  a 
syndicate  of  United  States  newspapers. 

The  Royal  for  January  is  a  bright  number.  The 
cover  is,  as  usual,  a  striking  one.     Among  the  leading

Great  Men  Woo,"  and  "The  Saving  of  H.M.S.  Calliope." 
The  stories  are  numerous  and  clever.  Altogether  the 
Royal  is  a  capital  magazine. 

No  fewer  than  four  serials  of  exceptional  interest  are 
to  be  found  in  the  current  issues  of  St.  Nicholas.  "The 
Boy's  Life  of  Abraham  Lincoln"  is  the  most  important 
feature.  "The  Crimson  Sweater"  and  "Pinkey  Per- 
kins" are  absorbing  boys'  stories,  and  "From  Sioux  to

many  illustrations,  is  an  ideal  publication  for  the

ENNISON  originated  and  has  maintained  the  Crepe  Paper  industry  of  the  country. 
Little  by  little  we  have  shown  people  how  it  can  be  used  and  have  thus  devel= 
oped  its  field  until  now  it  is  looked  upon  as  the  most  popular  material  for  all 
manner  of  home,  table  and  gala  decorations. 

At  the  present  time,  Dennison  is  spending  many  thousands  of  dollars  for  advertising  in 
the  leading  magazines  and  home  journals.  This  advertising  is  awakening  the  artistic  interest 
of  the  whole  country.  Every  appeal  we  make  is  just  as  much  in  the  interest  of  the  dealers  of 
this  land,  as  ourselves.  We  want  all  orders  to  come  through  dealers,  and  we  ask  the  dealers 
to  keep  a  sharp  lookout  that  they  may  reap  the  benefit  of  our  extensive  advertising  campaign. 

We  have  published  for  years  the  book  "Art  and  Decoration"  for  the  sole  purpose  of 
educating  people  in  the  simple  art  of  making  beautiful  things  from  Dennison's  Crepe  and 
Tissue  Papers.  The  seventeenth  edition  is  just  from  the  press.  Many  dealers  have  availed 
themselves  of  this  book  in  increasing  the  knowledge  as  to  the  use  of  our  goods  among  their 
customers.  As  an  adjunct  and  support  to  a  Dennison  stock,  they  are  invaluable.  If  you 
can  use  some  to  advantage,  communicate  with  our  nearest  store. 

Dennison's  Crepe  and  Tissue  Papers,  Passe=Partout  Bindings  and  our  Pure  Adhe- 
sives  in  the  Dennison  Patent  Pin  Tube — air-tight,  all  appeal  to  business  and  home  people, 
and  our  purpose  is  to  make  it  easy  for  them  to  obtain  the  Dennison  goods. 

In  this  campaign  of  education,  as  exemplified  by  the  attractive  and  interesting  exhibi- 
tions and  displays  in  each  of  our  stores,  we  hope  every  dealer  will  decide  to  participate. 

We  are  always  glad  to  assist  dealers  in  every  possible  way  that  will  put  before  the 
people  the  unlimited  and  wonderful  possibilities  of  our  Crepe  Papers  and  other  goods,  and 
to  that  end  solicit  your  particular  attention.  All  inquiries  will  have  our  careful  considera- 
tion; or,  visit  our  nearest  store,  talk  with  the  Manager,  and  see  the  advanced  ideas  exhibited.

that  we  refer  to  the  every-day  counter  trade  of  the 
dealer  or  to  his  staple  business.  We  refer  rather  to 
profitable  trade  opening's  such  as  we  shall  enumerate  in 
the  following  paragraphs— openings  which  are  his  by 
right  and  which  with  a  little  care  and  cultivation  he 
may    successfully    pursue. 

Nearly  every  town  and  village  to-day  possesses  a 
library.  Naturally  there  must  be  frequent  purchases  of 
books  for  these  libraries.  Let  us  ask,  in  how  many 
places  are  the  orders  for  these  books  placed  through  the 
locaL  bookseller  ?  The  truth  is,  in  very  few.  It  is  found 
that  in  the  great  majority  of  cases  the  order  goes  to 
some  library  supply  company  in  the  city. 

Now  it     seems     to    us  that  with  a  little  policy  the 

i 

local  bookseller  can  get  some  or  all  of  this  trade.  The 
body  that  sanctions  the  purchase  of  the  books  is  the 
library  board.  The  library  board  is  usually  composed  of 
business  and  professional  men,  who  get  their  living  from 
the  town.  A  little  convassing  of  these  men  should  do 
much  to  turn  their  sympathies  in  the  local  bookseller's 
direction.  They  are  usually  reasonable  men,  and  they 
should  readily  see  the  strength  of  the  dealer's  position. 
Finally,  a  plain,  direct  business  letter  to  the  secretary 
of  the  board,  just  before  the  annual  meeting,  will  be 
found  to  clinch  the  argument. 

A  second  direction  in  which  the  stationer  should  ac- 
tively bestir  himself  is  in  the  matter  of  bookkeeping 
systems.  There  are  to-day  two  or  three  strong  firms 
manufacturing  modern  loose-leaf  systems  in  Canada. 
These  firms  are  placing  their  goods  direct  in  many  offices, 

' stores  and  factories,     and  are  gradually  driving  out  the

UNTILLED  FIELDS. 

FOR  a  long  time  it  has  been  our  earnest  purpose  to 
arouse  the  trade  from  the  sort  of  lethargy  or  in- 
activity that  at  present  characterizes  it.  Whether 
it  is  from  lack  of  energy  or  lack  of  enterprise,  or  a  mis- 
taken notion  of  the  functions  of  a  bookseller  and  sta- 
tioner, the  truth  is  that  dealers  have  come  to  take  a 
back  seat  in  local  trade  circles  and  to  sit  patiently  by 
while  others,  more  keen  and  more  energetic,  take  the 
rewards. 

In    making    this    statement    let    it   not   be    understood 


It  behooves  the  stationer  to  learn  all  he  can  about 
loose  leaf  systems.  There  are  manufacturing  firms  who 
do  supply  them  to  the 'trade,  and  they  will  gladly  do  all 
they  can  to  help  on  their  trade  customers.  Let  the  sta- 
tioner acquaint  himself  thoroughly  with  the  system,  and 
then  try  to  steal  a  march  on  the  firms  who  sell  direct 
to  the  consumer.  He  should  make  an  annual  or  semi- 
annual canvas  of  all  local  houses  who  require  book- 
keeping supplies,  and  see  to  it  that  they  get  their  goods 
from  him,  whether  they  be  new  style  or  old  style.  If 
he  does  do  this,  he  will  find  some  day  that  the  loose- 
leaf  men  will  get  in  ahead  of  him  and  his  trade  will 
dwindle  away. 

A  great  many  other  instances  might  be  cited,  where 
with  a  little,  enterprise  a  good  trade  might  be  built  up, 
if  only  the  dealer  would  get  out  of  his  shop  and  canvas. 
Let  us  refer  to  but  one  more.  Local  hotels  are  accus- 
tomed to  purchase  such  articles  as  toilet  paper  in  good 
quantities  from  traveling  men  or  peddlers.  There  is  no 
reason  why  the  local  stationer  should  not  get  this  trade. 
He  has  a  right  \to  it,  just  as  much  as  the  butcher  has  a 
right  to  the  meat  trade  and  the  grocer  to  the  supply 
trade.  He  has  a  strong  argument  in  his  favor  and 
should  make  use  of  it.

papeterie,  handsomely  boxed,  with  sealing  wax  enclosed 
and  separate  drawer  for  note  paper.  It  might  also  be 
noted  that  a  new  shipment  of  the  favorite  Silk  Attire 
papeterie  has  arrived.

The  Hippodrome  Lead  Pencil  Exhibit  will  be  found

By  the  addition  of  a  complete  line  of  turkey  leather

W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.,  Toronto,  are  finding  that  their

branch  of  their  business  which  was  sent  out  to  the  trade 
a  few  weeks  ago  has  brought  in  a  large  number  of  orders 
and  inquiries.    The  loose  leaf  system  has  now  become  per-

During  the  holiday  season  an  exceptionally  good  de- 
mand was  noted  for  the  Shakespeare  and  Burns  packs  of 
Goodall's  playing  cards.  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  were  al- 
most cleaned  out  of  these  packs.  They  wish  to  state, 
however,  that  their  stock  has  since  been  reinforced  and 
they  are  now  prepared  to  fill  all  orders.

A  convenient  sealed  packet  of  note  paper  and  envelopes 
has  been  put  up  by  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  for  the  benefit 
of  dealers.  Often  customers  ask  for  5  cents  worth  of 
paper  and  envelopes  and  it  is  a  convenience  to  the  sta- 
tioner to  be  able  to  produce  a  packet  already  done  up.  A 
5-cent  packet  contains  eight  sheets  of  ordinary  note  paper 
and  envelopes  to  match.  A  10-cent  packet  of  mill  rem- 
nants contains  10  sheets  of  different  finish  paper  and  en- 
velopes to  match. 


manently  established,  and  very  many  of  the  alive,  up-to- 
date  merchants  will  have  no  other  kind  in  their  office.  As 
W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.  are  selling  these  goods  through  the 
trade,  enabling  the  dealer  to  supply  his  customer  at  the 
lowest  market  price,  it  would  be  advisable  for  all  dealers 
interested  in  this  line  to  get  full  particulars  from  the 
makers,  as  much  of  the  loose  leaf  business  can  be  secured 
by  local  dealers  if  they  merely  would  devote  a  little  at- 
tention to  it.

The  Puritan  pin  pyramid,  sold  by  The  Copp,  Clark 
Co.,  has  one  advantage  over  the  ordinary  pyramid,  which 
should  make  it  popular.  This  is  a  cushion  in  the  centre, 
where  pins  can  be  stuck.  When  a  pin  has  once  been  re- 
moved from  the  ordinary  pyramid,  it  cannot  conveniently

The  Brown  Brothers,  Limited,  have  recently  issued  a 
complete  catalogue  of  their  wood  rose  inkstands,  in 
which  are  illustrated  upwards  of  thirty  designs,  most  of 
which  are  made  in  the  above  mentioned  three  finishes, 
and  some  are  made  in  gold  decorated  mahogany  and  na- 
tural birdseye  maple. 

Dimity,  "the  paper  that  made  Hamilton  famous,"  is 
still  gaining  in  popularity.  Each  year  since  it  was  first 
introduced  it  has  almost  doubled  the  sales  of  the  year 
previous,  until  now  it  is  a  standard  of  good  stationery.

W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.,  Toronto,  have  been  very  busy  the 
latter  part  of  December  with  their  annual  stock-taking. 
It  has  terminated  a  very  successful  year.  The  fact  that 
they  own  their  own  paper  mills  has  enabled  them  to  fill 
orders  promptly  for  writing  and  book  papers,  and  has 
been  a  very  large  factor  in  the  production  of  the  excellent 
values  this  firm  now  offer  in  envelopes,  writing  tablets, 
and  other  lines  of  stationery  of  which  their  mill  papers 
form  the  raw  material.  They  state  that  the  year  now 
opening  will  see  much  improvement  still  in  all  depart- 
ments of  their  business. 

Lorraine  stationery,  the  staple  line  of  Warwick  Bros. 
&  Rutter,  Limited,  is  now  made  up  in  three  sizes  and 
two  colors,  making  six  distinct  numbers.  The  note- 
paper  is  banded  in  quires,  with  envelopes  to  match. 
These  are  of  the  deep  square  variety  with  wallet  flap. 
The  shades  are  azure  and  white.  Lorraine  is  a  staple, 
medium-priced  notepaper. 


Naples  linen  is  the  name  of  a  new  line  of  stationery, 
including  natepaper  and  envelope,  which  continues  the

INVALUABLE  REFERENCE  BOOK. 

A  BOOK  which  has  become  indispensable  to  those  who 
have  once  purchased  it  is  the  Canadian  Almanac, 
issued  in  revised  and  enlarged  form  each  December. 
The  issue  for  1906  forms  the  fifty-ninth  in  the  series,  the 
almanac  having  been  published  continuously  since  1848. 
It  contains  452  pages  and  is  full  of  valuable  information. 
Among  the  more  important  contents  may  be  noted  full 
lists  of  the  members  of  the  Dominion  and  Provincial  Gov- 
ernments, a  complete  clergy  list  of  all  denominations,  the . 
post  offices  of  Canada,  the  newspapers  of  Canada  and 
their  circulations,  a  full  Canadian  militia  list,  banks  and 


their  branches,  a  complete  customs  tariff,  etc.,  etc.,  be- 
sides the  customary  astronomical  calculations,  eclipses, 
tide  tables,   etc.,   always   associated   with   an   almanac. 

The  same  careful  editing  which  has  always  character- 
ized the  Canadian  Almanac  is  evident  in  the  new  edition. 
The  lists  can  all  be  relied  on  and  the  work  has  been  done 
thoroughly  in  every  respect.  Copies  of  the  almanac  can 
be  procured  from  any  bookseller  or  from  the  publishers,

THE  FOUNTAIN  PEN. 

(Liverpool  Post  and  Mercury.) 

ONE  of  the  most  remarkable  economic  developments 
of  our  time  is  concerned  with  the  fountain  pen. 
Nowadays  scarcely  anyone  who  has  to  do  much 
writing  but  is  armed  with  one  of  them.  The  trade  in 
steel  pens  has  been  seriously  affected,  and  many  employ- 
ers have  been  saved  quite  a  considerable  sum  of  money 
by  the  tendency  of  their  clerks  to  purchase  their  own 
fountain  pens  rather  than  be  condemned  to  the  use  of 
the  commonplace   steel. 

The  taxpayer,  too,  has  been  saved  some  thousands 
of  pounds  annually,  for  in  the  civil  service  the  use  of 
the  privately-owned  fountain  pen  has  had  an  appreciable 
influence. 

The  number  of  inventions  in  connection  with  this 
modern  contrivance  is  remarkable.  There  are  clips  for 
the  pocket,  patent  fillers,  pens  which  need  no  fillers, 
peculiarly  suitable  inks,  non-spilling  reservoirs,  and  even 
devices  to  prevent  the  pen  from  falling  on  its  point,  no 
small  catastrophe  when  the  writer  has  hit  on  a  satisfac- 
tory pen  after  a  prolonged  search. 

But  no  one  has  succeeded  in  inventing  some  arrange- 
ment to  enable  the  absent-minded  man  to  remember 
where  he  laid  the  thing.  Here  is  an  invention  which  is 
badly  needed.

LEADING    CANADIAN 
STORES 


* 


J.  J.  TAYLOR,  SAULT  STE.  MARIE. 

ONE  of  the  largest  and  most  progressive  dealers  in 
books,  stationery  and  fancy  goods  in  Ontario  is 
Mr.  J.  J.  Taylor,  of  Sault  Ste.  Marie.  Starting 
about  three  years  ago  with  small  capital,  he  took  advan- 
tage of  the  splendid  opening  that  offered  itself  in  a  town 
which  was  then  at  the  height  of  its  prosperity,  and  soon 
built  up  a  splendid  trade. 

The  store  in  which  he  first  started  business  was  one 
ideally  suited  for  the  purpose  at  the  time.  But  within 
two  years  it  proved  entirely  too  small  to  accommodate 
his  ever    increasing    stock  and    trade,   and   arrangements 


The  stock  consists  chiefly  of  books,  stationery,  wall 
paper,  fancy  goods  and  sporting  goods.  In  each  of  these 
lines  his  stock  is  strictly  up-to-date  and  consists  of  the 
best  lines  in  the  market.  It  is  the  general  opinion  that 
the  stock  has  been  very  well  selected  and  no  pains  have 
been  spared  in  arranging  and  caring  for  the  multiplicity 
of  attractive  articles. 

During  the  Christmas  season  this  store  appears  to  be 
the  Mecca  for  the  shopping  public.  In  the  Summer  a  large 
business  is  done  with  the  traveling  public,  who  can  al- 
ways find  here  the  latest  in  books  and  novelties.  In  fact, 
visitors  to  the  "Soo"  always  find  their  way  sooner  or 
later  to  Mr.  Taylor's  store.

were  made  for  larger  quarters.  This  was  the  adjoining 
store,  which  is  eighty  feet  long  and  twenty  feet  in  width. 
This  new  store  was  appropriately  decorated  and  fitted  up. 
The  ceiling  was  covered  with  sheet  metal  of  a  beautiful 
design,  which  gave  good  effect  to  the  splendid  stock  be- 
neath. Three  silent  salesmen  were  installed  at  the  front 
of  the  store  and  each  was  filled  with  the  very  latest 
goods.    Other  improved  devices  were  installed. 

Mr.  Taylor  realizes  that  the  cheapest  and  most  effec- 
tive system  of  advertising  is  an  attractive  window.  With 
this  idea  always  in  view,  he  makes  it  a  point  to  have  his 
window  well  dressed  with  only  the  best  goods  in  the 
market,  and  also  sees  to  it  thajt  changes  are  made  fre- 
quently. 


IN  THE  WRONG  SHOP. 

A  commercial  traveler  representing  a  firm  of  whole- 
sale stationers  spins  the  following:  yarn  which,  he  says, 
he  picked  up  in  a  bookstore  in  the  Eastern  Townships  : 

A  girl  went  into  a  bookstore  and  asked  to  see  a 
copy  of  "The  Pioneer."  She  looked  at  it  for  a  few 
minutes,  and  then  banded  it  back  to  the  clerk. 

"  'Tain't  what  I  want,"  she  said.  "I  want  a  book 
on  pi-ano  playing." 

"Did  you  think  'The  Pioneer'  was  such  a  book  ?" 
asked  the  proprietor. 

"Why,  yes,"  she  replied.  "Wouldn't  you,  from  that 
name  ?"

GOODALL'S  NEW  LINES. 

Described  by  Our  London  Correspondent 

Your  correspondent  had  an  opportunity  of  looking 
over  some  of  the  new  lines  for  the  coming  season  in 
Messrs.  Goodall's  showroom,  and  while  there  are  not  as 
many  new  patterns  to  the  front  this  year  as  last,  there 
will  be  a  new  "Souvenir"  card,  with  views  taken  from 
points  west  of  Port  Arthur  to  Vancouver,  and  with  the 
provincial  coat  of  arms  of  British  Columbia  and  Mani- 
toba    separately     on   the   back,    thus   making   a   distinct

card  representing  views  of  Canada's  Northwest  and 
British  Columbia. 

Added  to  the  series  of  fancy  backs  are  about  10  new 
lines,  amongst  which  are  very  attractive  "The  Ballet 
Dancer,"  "Chrysanthemum,"  "Poppy,"  and  a  specially 
designed  back  with  initial,  which  will  retail  at  25c.  per 
pack. 

Among  the  best  selling  lines  during  the  present  year 
are  the  "Clan-tartan"  cards  representing  16  different 
elans.  These  will,  of  course,  occupy  a  prominent  posi- 
tion amongst  the  samples  now  being  made  up.  A  great 
favorite  also  is  the  "Linette"  card,  the  special  feature 
of  which  consists  in  the  surface  of  both  back  and  face 
being  granulated  or  linen  grained,  instead  of  being  per- 
fectly smooth.  These  cards  have  a  very  pleasing  feel  in 
the  hand,  are  easily  dealt,  and  are  subject  to  less  chance 
of  misdeal  than  those  of  ordinary  finish. 


RE 


Novelty  in  Playing  Cards. 


"Draw  Bridge"  the  New  Game. 

A  decided  novelty,  destined  to  be  the  craze  of  the 
year,  is  the  new  game  of  "Draw-Bridge"  for  two  play-, 
ers.  Messrs.  Goodall  &  Sons,  Limited,  hold  the  exclu- 
sive rights  for  the  manufacture  of  the  automatic  part- 


ners used  in  this  game,  as  shown  herewith.  A  glance  at 
block  No.  1  shows  the  double  deck  stand  of  polished 
mahogany  or  walnut,  with  neat  wire  racks  to  hold  the 
cards  in  slanting  position,  six  on  the  upper  row  and 
seven  on  the  lower,  as  seen  in  blocks  Nos.  2  and  3.  This 
clever,  yet  simple,  arrangement  of  the  dummy  stands 
makes  it  impossible  for  one  to  see  the  cards  of  his  op- 
ponent's dummy,  although  they  are  almost  at  his  elbow 
and  are  plainly  visible  to  the  player  for  whose  use  they 
are  intended.  As  played  with  these  dummies,  by  two 
persons,  all  the  original  features  of  the  four  hand  game 
of  bridge  are  preserved,  and  the  dummies  can  also  be 
used  for  other  four-handed  games,  such  as  whist,  etc., 
it  being  remembered  that  the  cards  held  by  dummies 
can  be  seen  by  their  respective  partners,  but  not  by 
their  opponents.  Not  a  few  first-class  bridge  players 
have  declared  their  opinion  that  the  invention  opens  a 
new  era  in  card  games  for  two  persons.  The  "Draw- 
Bridge"  sets  are  boxed  in  pairs,  to  retail  at  a  moderate 
figure,  and  a  set  of  hints  and  rules  for  play  accompanies 
each  set. 


GET  READY   FOR  SPRING  SPORTS. 

IT  is  none  too  early  to  be  thinking  of  sporting  goods 
for  Spring  and  Summer.     There  is  always  an  active 

demand  for  baseball  supplies  just  after  the  snow  goes, 
and  "the  early  bird  catches  the  worm." 

Dealers  might  take  note  that  the  Kelk-Sutcliffe  Com- 
pany, of  Toronto,  have  secured  by  special  arrangement 
from  the  manufacturers  an  extra  good  line  of  baseball 
mitts,  masks  and  bats,  which  they  will  be  able  to  sell 
at  popular  prices.  In  the  regular  way  these  goods  would 
go  at  a  high  price. 

Their  staple  stock  of  baseball  sundries  is  complete. 
They  also  offer  lines  of  boxing  gloves  and  striking  bags 
at  a  discount  of  from  a  quarter  to  a  third  off.  For 
croquet  playing  they  also  show  attractive  sets,  and  their 
other  lines,  such  as  hammocks,  express  waggons,  etc., 
are  as  extensive  as  ever. 


GREAT  VALUE   IN  BOATS. 

THE  display  of  import  samples  of  200  different  styles 
of  boats  in  the  showroom  of  the  Kelk-Sutcliffe 
Company,  Toronto,  is  a  remarkable  one.  There 
are  accurate  models  of  all  the  famous  racing  craft,  full- 
rigged  yachts  and  schooners,  sailing  vessels  of  all  de- 
scriptions, houseboats,  life-boats,  row-boats,  etc.  Every 
boat  is  handsomely  painted  and  varnished,  and  with  its 
rigging,  hatches,  bulwarks  and  crew,  presents  a  life-like 
model  of  the  real  thing.  The  keels  are  leaded  in  most 
cases,  making  the  craft  entirely  seaworthy. 

But  the  marvellous  thing  about  these  boats  is  their 
price.  It  seems  impossible  that  such  elaborate  creations 
should  be  produced  so  ridiculously  cheap.  Some  of  the 
smaller  boats  sell  as  low  as  5c.  retail,  and  from  this 
amount  prices  rise  as  high  as  $2.  The  range  from  10c. 
to  50c.  is  extensive,  and  should  form  the  basis  for  a 
good  trade.     Import  orders  are  now  being  booked. 


The  Canadian  Kodak  Company,  Limited,  have  been 
empowered  to  increase  their  capital  stock  from  $150,000 

to  $300,000.

THE  HEIGHT  OF  ATTRACTION. 

WIIKN  will  the  limit  be  reached  ?  When  will  it  be 
possible  to  say  that  nothing  better  in  the  post 
card  line  can  be  produced  ?  Every  month  the  eye 
is  delighted  by  some  new  creation,  which  seems  to  exceed 
in  beauty  and  attractiveness  anything  seen  before.  This 
month  it  is  the  line  of  the  National  Art  Company  that 
calls  forth  ardent  admiration  and  that  seems  to  defy  com- 
parison. 

The  National  Art  Company  are  the  artistic  branch  of 
the  American  Colortype  Company.  Their  post  card  crea- 
tions are  carried  in  Canada  by  The  Copp,  Clark  Company, 
Limited,  who  now  have  in  stock  a  range  of  sixty-six  dif- 
ferent cards.  These  are  excellent  specimens  of  advanced 
three-color  work,  being  reproductions  of  paintings  of  well 
known  artists  and  cartoonists.  The  latest  additions  to 
the  line  include  the  following  sets  : 


series  of  flags  of  all  nations,  showing  in  each  case  a  girl 
in  the  garb  of  her  native  land,  holding  her  flag  aloft  ;  the 
city  girls,  one  for  each  of  the  principal  American  cities  ; 
the  sporting  girls,  one  for  each  of  the  sports  ;  the  four 
seasons  ;  and  a  number  of  charming  natural  scenes,  re. 
produced   in  appropriate  tints. 

Many  of  these  cards  are  suitable  for  framing  and  their 
sale  for  this  purpose  might  well  be  pushed.  At  any  rate, 
they  can  be  used  to  excellent  advantage  for  window  dis- 
play.   When  seen  they  are  sure  to  be  asked  for. 

THE  STAR  SERIES. 

FRANKEL    &    CO.,    245    Shaftesbury    avenue,    London, 
England,   are  the  sole  publishers  of  the  Star  series 
of  pictorial  post  cards,   which  are  all  made  in  Ger- 
many.   Through  the  courtesy  of  the  publishers,  Bookseller 
and  Stationer  is  able  to  describe  several  of  the  best  lines.

An  attractive  effect  for  Souvenir  Post  Card. 

Designed  and  Engraved  by  Gatchel  &  Manning,  Philadelphia. 


THE  FOUR  BELLES.  These  are  from  paintings  by 
Lillian  W.  Hunter  and  depict  in  delicate  colors  the  faces 
of  four  charming  maidens  representing  the  east,  west, 
north  and  south. 

THE  FOUR  BIRDS.  These  are  reproductions  of  car- 
toons by  Martin,  called  the  Gay  Bird,  the  Jail  Bird,  the 
Highflyer  and   the   Birdcage. 

THE  FOUR  DUTCH  CHILDREN.  These  are  quaint 
pictures,  each  containing  two  children  in  the  Dutch  garb. 

THE  FOUR  CHINESE.  Four  pictures  entitled  re- 
spectively "A  Holiday  in  Chinatown,"  "Celebrating," 
"Ah  Lea"  and  "The  Lantern."  These  reproduce  Chinese 
life  to  perfection. 

Among  the  many  other  cards  might  be  mentioned  the 


English  actresses  are  portrayed  in  several  different 
styles,  black  and  white,  steel  engraving,  imitation,  hand- 
colored  and  machine-colored.  There  are  forty  different 
subjects. 

Comics  are  produced  in  great  variety.  The  samples 
shown  are  attractively  colored  and  amusing.  Burlesque 
characters  and  laughable  scenes  make  up  a  goodly  number. 
Studies  of  child  life  form  a  third  variety,  of  which  about 
thirty  new  series  are  coming  out.  The  work  on  these 
cards  is  of  a  high  order  of  merit  and  the  subjects  are 
most  life-like. 

British  warships  J,o  the  number  of  twelve  present  a 
very  fine  appearance.  These  are  splendid  cards  for  display 
purposes.

Orano  cards  are  produced  by  a  new  process.  The  sub-

POSTAL  CARD   STAND. 

EVERY  dealer  nowadays  handles  postal  cards  and  the 
sale  of  these  popular  goods  is  greatly  helped  by 
having  a  suitable  display  stand  to  show  them.  W. 
J.  Gage  &>  Co.,  Toronto,  are  selling  a  very  attractive  one 
as  shown  in  accompanying  cut.  This  is  made  of  metal 
and  revolves  on  an  iron  base.  It  displays  49  varieties  and 
each  compartment  will  hold  about  three  dozen  cards.  This 
stand  is  very  reasonable  in  price,'  and  dealers  not  already 
supplied   should  write  Gage  &   Co.    for   particulars.    This 


firm  also  sell  a  cheaper  postal  card  stand  made  of  wood 
which  can  be  set  up  on  the  counter  or  hung  on  the  wall. 
This  one  will  hold  27  varieties  and  is  an  excellent  article

COLONIAL   EXPORT  DEPARTMENT 

PHILIP  G.  HUNT,  pictorial  post  card  printer,  of  Man- 
chester, has  recently  opened  up  a  branch  house  in 
London,  England,  as  an  export  colonial  department. 
He  hopes  in  course  of  time  to  work  up  a  very  nice  Cana- 
dian business,  and  with  the  facilities  at  his  disposal  he 
should  have  no  difficulty  in  doing  so. 

Mr.  Hunt  makes  a  specialty  of  printing  local  views  to 
his  customers'  orders,  and  has  turned  out  some  very  nice 
work  of  this  class.  He  produces  autobunt  cards,  which  is 
the  same  process  as  typochrome,  but  with  four  colors  ; 
also  glossy  gelatine  surface,  real  photo  with  matt  or 
glossy  surface,  collotype-platinum  and  hand  colored  collo- 
type, photo  type  and  Victoria  chrome  cards. 

Mr.  Hunt  has  gotten  out  a  very  attractive  little  folder 
giving  prices  and  detailed  information,  which  he  will  be 
pleased  to  mail  to  readers  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer 
who  ask  for  it.  Apart  from  this  work  of  reproducing  cus- 
tomers' own  subjects,  Mr.  Hunt  publishes  a  range  of 
post  cards  of  his  own,  which  are  very  attractive  and  of 
fine  workmanship.  Communications  addressed  to  34  Pat- 
ernoster Row,  London,  England,  will  receive  prompt  at- 
tention. 


SELLING  DEVICES. 

YY7ARWICK  BR°S-  &  RUTTER,  LIMITED,  have 
\A/  purchased  the  Canadian  rights  for  a  suspending 
post  card  rack  to  hold  from  twelve  to  fifteen 
cards.  These  can  be  attached  in  strings  and  are  very  use- 
ful for  display  purposes.    The  price  is  5  cents  each. 

A  large  revolving  post  card  rack,  capable  of  holding 
hundreds  of  cards,  can  be  procured  from  this  house  at  $10. 
The  business  of  selling  post  cards  has  attained  such  pro- 
portions that  the  small  racks  are  inadequate. 

An  entire  new  range  of  post  card  albums  is  now  in 
stock,  ranging  in  price  from  10  cents  up  to  $2.  Shipments 
will  be  made  shortly. 

An  attractive  show  card  in  two  colors,  on  which  four 
Canadian  views  are  reproduced,  is  sent  out  by  Warwick 
Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  to  push  the  sale  of  their  Ocean 
to  Ocean  cards. 


MacFARLANE'S  BUDGET  OF  NEWS. 

WG.  MacFARLANE,  72  Bay  street,  Toronto,  will 
issue  this  month  a  forty-page  catalogue  covering 
his  full  line  of  picture  post  cards,  souvenir  view 
books,  burnt  leather  novelties,  post  card  racks,  post  card 
albums,  etc.,  etc.  The  catalogue  is  well  illustrated  and 
is  something  every  dealer  should  have.  This  catalogue  is 
being  sent  out  to  all  dealers  on  Mr.  MacFarlane's  trade 
list  and  any  firm  not  receiving  one  will  be  forwarded  one 
immediately  on  receipt  of  their  inquiry. 

Mr.  MacFarlane  claims  to  have  the  largest  assortment 
of  post  cards  of  any  firm  in  Canada.  In  Canadian  view 
and  fancy  cards  he  carries  over  six  hundred  subjects,  his 
range  of  import  lines  of  fancy  and  comic  post  cards,  Eng- 
lish view  cards,  real  photos  and  genre  cards,  actresses, 
etc.,  is  very  large.  He  also  does  a  great  deal  in  season- 
able cards  such  as  Valentine,  Easter,  Christmas  and  New 
Year  cards.  A  striking  novelty  is  the  multiple  post  card 
which  has  had  a  big  range  in  England  and  which  has  made 
a  good  start  in  this  country.  This  firm  has  contracted 
for  a   large   number   of   these  cards   for    this   market    and

they  have  secured  from  the  Photochrome  Co.,  Limited,  of 
London,  the  exclusive  agency  of  the  line. 

Mr.  MacFarlane  has  secured  the  exclusive  agency  for 
Stewart  &  Woolf  line  of.  cards  in  fancy,  comic,  Christmas 
cards,  etc.  No  dealer  should  place  his  order  for  Christ- 
mas cards  without  having  seen  this  line,  as  it  proved 
most  popular  in  Canada  during  the  Christmas  season  of 
1905.  The  new  1906  samples  of  this  line  will  not  be  re- 
ceived before  March  of  this  year  and  dealers  would  do 
well  to  reserve  their  orders  until  they  see  these  samples. 

Very  large  business  is  being  written  by  Mr.  MacFar- 
lane in  contract  editions  of  view  cards,  the  popular  styles 
being  the  collotype,  chromotype  and  autochrome,  silver 
print  imitation  and  real  photo.  These  are  all  import  lines 
of  excellent  quality. 


NEW  SERIES  AT  WARWICK  BROS.  &  RUTTER. 

ANEW  series  of  Indian  post  cards,  embracing  twenty 
different   subjects,     have     been   stocked   by   Warwick 
Bros.   &  Rutter,   Limited,  loronto.    The  cards  are 
colored  bromides,     resembling    hand-colored    photographs. 
They  sell  at  $15  per  $1,000. 


A  choice  line,  just  ready,  is  a  series  of  twenty  differ- 
ent comics  of  the  "rite  away"  style. 


For  variety  and  excellence,  a  set  of  sixty  different 
hand-colored  bromide  prints  are  worthy  of  mention.  They 
include  pretty  heads,  groups,  poses,  fancy  pictures,  etc. 


A  RESTRICTION  REMOVED. 

THE  new  issue  of  the  Post  Office  Guide,  to  be  pub- 
lished this  month,  will  contain  an  amended  regula- 
tion of  the  British  Postmaster-General  affecting  pic- 
ture post  cards.  Picture  post  cards  sent  to  places  abroad 
are  no  longer  debarred  from  bearing  a  communication  on 
the  left-hand  half  of  the  address  side,  and,  so  far  as  the 
British  post  office  is  concerned,  now  pass  at  the  post  card 
rate.  The  concession  has  been  accepted  by  Austria,  Bel- 
gium, Denmark,  Egypt,  France,  Germany,  Holland,  Hun- 
gary, Italy,  Luxemburg,  Mexico,  Norway,  Portugal,  Rus- 
sia, Sweden,  Switzerland  and  Tunis.  It  is  not,  however, 
universally  accepted,  and  no  guarantee  can  at  present 
be  given  that  such  cards  will  be  allowed  to  pass  at  the 
post  card  rate  in  countries  other  than  those  mentioned. 
Positive  information  has  been  received  that  cards  of  the 
kind  described  will  not  be  allowed  to  pass  as  post  cards 
in  Japan,,  Spain  or  the  United  States. 


A  new  line,  ready  shortly,  in  a  superior  high-class 
card,  will  show  a  series  of  pictures  of  limited  expresses, 
ocean  greyhounds,  fire  engines,  etc.  These  are  produced 
with  the  latest  effect  in  embossed  and  tinselled  design, 
hand-colored,   and  are  extremely  handsome. 


Orders  are  being  booked  for  view  cards  produced  in 
borders  resembling'  picture  frames.  These  are  being  es- 
pecially prepared  for  collectors.  The  effect  produced  is 
striking  and  at  a  distance  the  card  looks  just  like  a 
framed  picture. 

•  *  • 

A  pack  of  100  leading  Canadian  views,  selected  from 
the  Ocean  to  Ocean  series,  should  be  a  good  seller  every- 
where. The  views  include  pictures  of  Canadian  cities  and 
towns,  mountain,  river  and  lake  scenery,  scenes  from 
Evangeline's  land,  etc.    The  trade  price  is  $1  per  hundred. 


NOTES. 

"S.  Hildesheimer  &  Co.,  Limited,  art  publishers,  of 
Clerkenwell  Road,  London,  England,  have  appointed 
Aubrey  O.  Hurst  agent  for  Canada.  The  company  special-

Portraits  of  King  Edward  and  Queen  Alexandra,  the 
Prince  and  Princess  of  Wales,  in  eight  different  styles, 
embossed,  tinselled,  colored,  jeweled,  etc.,  are  a  popular 
high-priced  line,  that  should  take  well  with  patriotic 
Canadians.  In  the  same  style  are  fifty  pictures  of 
actresses,  etc.

MONTHLY    REPORTS 
FROM  TRADE   CENTRES 


HALIFAX. 

Excellent  Reports  of  Holiday  Trade— Dealers  Well  Satisfied— 

Creighton   &    Marshall    dissolved,   January  1st — 

C.  H.  MacKinlay  Home  from  England. 

Halifax,  January,  11,  '906 

THE  holiday  business  was  on  the  whole  better  this 
year  than  last.  Some  of  the  retailers  found  it  the 
"best  ever,"  while  others  found  it  fair. 
A.  &  W.  Mackinlay,  Limited,  did  not  cater  extensively 
to  the  retail  trade,  but  found  sales  of  lines  in  their  re- 
tail stock  suitable  for  the  holiday  trade  large.  The 
wholesale  trade  in  advance  of  the  holiday  season  was 
good  and  judging  by  mail  orders  the  outlook  for  the  year 
opening  is  good.  The  travelers  of  the  firm  have  just  gone 
out  on  their  first  trip. 

* 

At  the  Methodist  Book  Room,  S.  F.  Huestis,  D.D., 
book  steward,  trade  was  good.  The  Book  Room  really 
occupies  a  large  three-storey  building  on  Granville  street 
fully  stocked,  and  has  been  in  operation  for  about  forty 
years.  At  this  establishment  are  handled  all  William 
Briggs'  publications,  and  though  dealing  largely  in  re- 
ligious works  the  trade  is  not  confined  thereto,  though  no- 
thing irreligious  is  handled. 

*  *  * 

J.  L.  Connolly,  Barrington  street,  says  the  holiday 
trade  was  "the  best  ever."  His  Christmas  advertising 
included  a  90-lamp  electric  light  sign  of  the  name  "Con- 
nolly." Large  selling  books  for  the  holidays  were  "Evan- 
geline," illustrated  by  Christy,  and  Bret  Harte's  "Her 
Letter,"  both  being  holiday  editions.  "The  House  of 
Mirth,"  "The  House  of  One  Thousand  Candles,"  "Mys- 
tery of  June  13th,"  and  Father  Devine's  "Across  Widest 
America"  are  selling  well.  The  printery  is  rushed  and  the 
printers  got  the  eight-hour  day  without  any  friction. 


somewhat  shorter  than  usual.  The  run  on  Christmas 
cards  and  calendars  was  very  heavy. 

*  •  * 

At  the  store  of  E.  P.  Meagher",  Limited,  the  holiday 
trade  was  fair  and  continues  so.  The  firm  carried  a  side 
line  of  expensive  mechanical  toys  and  dolls  for  the  holi- 
days. Fiction  sellers  are  "The  Gambler,"  "Nedra,"  "The 
Masquerader,"  "Hearts  and  Masks,"  "House  of  One 
Thousand  Candles,"  and  "House  of  Mirth." 

*  *  * 

The  firm  of  Creighton  &  Marshall,  dealers  in  charts, 
navigation  works,  nautical  instruments,  etc.,  and  paper 
rulers,  was  dissolved  the  first  of  the  year,  H.  M,  Creigh- 
ton and  Edward  Marshall  continuing  under  the  old  firm 
name.  The  firm  has  been  in  business  twenty-six  years, 
and  for  twenty-five  years  previous  to  this  copartnership 
being  formed  Mr.  Creighton  was  in  partnership  with  his 
brother  (A.  &  H.  Creighton)  in  the  same  line.

Day  &  Robinson  are  booming  business  in  Morris  street 
in  the  south  end,  and  got  a  large  share  of  the  holiday 
business  in  that  part  of  the  city.

Mrs.  and  Miss  Mackinlay.

At  C.  C.  Morton's,  George  street,  trade  is  reported 
good,  and  was  brisk  through  the  holidays,  the  demand  for 
cards  being  heavy.  J.  L.  G.

MR.    GEORGE    J.    McLEOD,   of  McLeod   &   Allen,    is 
at  present  visiting  New  York  and  Boston,  renew- 
ing    the     firm's    arrangements   with    the      various 
American    houses    represented   by    them    in    Canada.      Mr. 
Allen  is  also  away  in  New  York  at  present. 


At  T.  C.  Allen  &  Co.'s  the  holiday  trade  was  good 
and  all  late  books  sold  well.  There  was  a  heavy  run  on 
cards  and  card  albums.  "The  Gambler"  and  "St.  Cuth- 
bcrt's"  continue  to  sell  well,  and  "The  Cherry  Riband" 
and  "Red  Fox"  are  having  a  run.  The  printing  and  bind- 
ing department  has  lots  of  work  and  the  prospects  for 
1906  are  good.

At  the  B.  A.  Book  and  Tract  Depository  the  holiday 
trade  was  reported  fair  and  business  continues  so.  Miss 
E.  C.  Baker  is  acting  manager  and  J.  R.  .Mellish  book- 
keeper.

At  L.  Clyde  Davidson  &  Co.'s  the  holiday  trade  was 
brisk.  At  the  time  of  writing  Mr.  Davidson  is  confined 
to  his  residence  by  illness  but  is  improving  and  is  ex- 
pected to  be  out  in  a  few  days.

G.  J.  Kline,  the  north  end  stationer,  whose  store  is

ment stores  was  noted.

MONTREAL. 

Office  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer, 

232  McGill  Street,  Montreal. 

January,  11,  1906. 

NOW  that  the  annual  rush  occasioned  by  the  holiday 
season  has  ended,  retail  book  dealers  and  stationers 
are  busily  engaged  re-arranging  their  stock,-*  stock- 
taking, and  getting  rid  of  all  articles  which  are  liable  to 
prove  a  drug  if  held  much  longer.  Numerous  methods  are 
used  in  getting  rid  of  this  superfluous  stock.  Managers  of 
the  book  and  stationery  departments  in  our  largei  depart- 
ment stores  are  placing  goods  in  many  parts  of  thel  store 
and  by  means  of  large  discounts  these  goods  are  selling 
freely  and  quickly.  All  merchants  are  anxious  to  dispose 
of  old  stock  and  each  is  following  a  scheme  which  he  be- 
lieves will  appeal  to  his  own  particular  class  of  trade. 

•  .  • 

Popular  works  of  fiction  sold  quite  freely  during  the 
last  two  weeks  of  December  and  the  trade  of  the  holiday 
season  was  much  better  than  that  of  previous  years.  As 
a  rule  a  better  class  of  books  were  purchased  for  Christ- 
mas purposes  and  the  business  transacted  in  this  particu- 
lar branch  was  much  better  than  the  merchants 
had  anticipated.  "The  House  of  Mirth,"  "The 
Conquest  of  Canaan,"  "Nedra,"  and  "The  Gambler"  were 
quite   prominent   among   the  works  purchased   for   holiday 

gift  purposes. 

•  * 

* 

Stationery  was  also  an  article  purchased  in  large 
quantities  previous  to  Christmas  and  New  Year's.  Money 
had  a  better  circulation  during  last  December  and  as  a 
result  a  better  class  of  stationery  was  purchased.  Many 
of  the  local  dealers  in  stationery  are  of  the  opinion  that 
the  higher  class  of  stationery  will  have  a  better  sale  next 
season  and  as  a  result  many  are  devising  schemes  for  sell- 
ing the  cheaper  grades  on   quick  notice. 

•  *  * 

"Mr.    Wm.    Drysdale,     of     Wm.    Drysdale   &    Co.,    book- 
sellers and  stationers,  of  St.   Catherine  street,  this    city, 


Mr.  John  Morgan,  who  for  many  years  has  managed 
the  department  of  fancy  goods,  stationery  and  books  for 
the  firm  of  Henry  Morgan  &  Co.,  is  severing  his  connec- 
tion to  become  the  resident  ag-ent  of  Raphael  Tuck  & 
Sons'  Company,  whose  headquarters  are  in  New  York 
city.  Mr.  Morgan  has  been  in  the  em.play  of  the  Colonial 
House  for  a  number  of  years  and  when  he  severs  his  con- 
nection on  February  15  he  will  be  greatly  missed.  During 
the  last  few  years  Mr.  Morgan  has  superintended  all  the 
purchasing  of  fancy  goods,  stationery  and  books. 

•  *  • 

The  sale  of  picture  post  cards  is  the  theme  of  special 
interest  among  the  local  retail  stationers.  The  demand, 
which  has  always  been  good  at  this  point,  is  increasing 
and  the  outlook  in  connection  with  this  branch  of  the 
trade  is  brighter  than  ever.  Comic  cards  are  selling  freely 
among  the  smaller  stores,  but  the  houses  which  command 
the  higher  class  of  trade  are  paying  more  attention  to 
the  cards  which  portray  views  of  different  parts  of  Can- 
ada. Another  card  which  is  coming  into  prominence  is 
one  pic'turing  the  prominent  men  of  the  world. 


COLORS  FOR  TINTING. 

A  J.  MeCRAE  is  placing  on  the  Canadian  market  for 
the  American  Crayon  Company  a  new  box  of  col- 
ors, called  No.  4030.  The  box  is  made  of  neat 
yellow  cardboard,  3^  by  5J  inches  and  contains  eight 
transparent  and  indelible  colors  and  one  cup  of  foundation 
white,  for  use  in  diluting  and  making  body  tints  from  the 
eight  transparent  colors.  The  main  use  for  these  colors 
is  to  tint  photographs,  magazine  pictures  or  drawings  or 
to  color  fancy  goods  and  burnt  wood  articles.  At  10 
cents,  the  box  is  a  marvel  of  utility  and  cheapness. 


POINTS  WORTH  NOTING. 

St.  Valentine's  Day  falls  on  February  14.  Watch 
your,  stock,  especially  post  cards. 

There  is  not  much  chance  of  a  decline  in  the  price  of 
rubber  goods,  owing-  to  the  high  value  of  crude  rubber. 
Rubber  bands  are  still  quoted  at  twenty-five  per  cent, 
off. 

American  makers  of  blank  books  have  withdrawn 
prices,  and  an  increase  of  from  10  to  20  per  cent,  may 
be  looked  for  in  the  American  market.  The  increased 
cost  of  leather,  duck  and  other  binding  materials  is  said 
to  account  for  the  advance. 

The  sale  of  blank  books  during  December  for  Janu- 
ary delivery  was  the  most  satisfactory  in  years. 

The  Christmas  trade  in  ipapeteries  was  entirely  satis- 
factory, there  being  an  immense  demand  for  the  numer- 
ous dainty  boxes  turned  out  by  Canadian  manufacturers. 

Supplies  of  picture  post  card  albums  ran  short  just 
before  Christmas,  the  manufacturers  being  unable  to 
cope  with  the  demand.  The  situation  has  since  been 
relieved. 


S.  W.  Fisher,  Phm.  B.,  has  opened  a  new  drug  and 
stationery  store  in  New  Vegreville,  in  the  Vermillion 
has  been  appointed  appraiser  of  stationery  and  fancy  goods  Valley.  Mr.  Fisher  has  had  a  lengthy  experience  in  a 
at  the    custom  house.     This  appointment  removes   from      Montreal  drug  store.

"Agnus  Dei." — For  chorus,  solo  voices  and  organ. 
By  Samuel  C.  Colburn.  This  clever  composition  was 
recently  awarded  a  prize  at  Harvard  University. 

"The  Blue  Hills  Far  Away."— Song.  By  Charles 
Manney.    A  first  rate  song  for  mezzo-soprano  or  baritone. 

"My  Jean." — Song.  By  Charles  Manney.  Published 
in  F  and  D.  A  little  gem,  and  undoubtedly  one  of  the 
prettiest  of  recent  songs.  The  composer  has  caught  the 
spirit  of  Burns'  immortal  lyric. 

"A  Father's  Lullaby." — Song.  By  Franklin  Riker. 
For  medium  voice.  A  touching  lyric  with  appropriate 
setting. 

"Voices  of  The  Past." — Vocal  duet.  For  soprano 
and  alto,  or  mezzo-soprano  and  baritone.  By  Edwin 
Greene.  An  effective  scoring  for  two  voices  of  this 
popular   song. 

"Sing  Me  to  Sleep." — Vocal  duet  for  soprano  and 
tenor,  soprano  and  alto,  or  alto  and  bass.  By  Edwin

for  solo  voice. 

"There  Let  Me  Rest." — Song.  By  Edwin  Greene, 
the  composer  of  "Sing  Me  to  Sleep.*"  Published  in  F, 
E  flat,  D  and  C,  with  violin  or  "cello  obligate  A  pretty 
melody  with  refrain  in  three-four  time,  reminiscent  of 
this  composer's  other  songs.  The  same  song  is  pub- 
lished in  duet  form  for  soprano  and  alto,  and  mezzo- 
soprano  and  baritone. 

"Voices  of  The  Past." — This  popular  song  by  Edwin 
Greene,  with  effective  guitar  accompaniment.

By  Florence  Allen.  Two  charming  lyrics  by  Bliss  Car- 
man, with  appropriate  musical  settings. 

"The  Nativity." — A  cantata  or  service  for  Christ- 
mas. By  F.  F.  Bullard.  For  solo  voices  and  chorus, 
with  orchestral  and  organ  accompaniment.  A  grateful 
and   attractive   composition.

voices  and  chorus.  By  Edmund  Turner.  A  beautiful 
composition  with  deep  devotional   spirit. 

"Te  Deum  Laudamus." — By  Edmund  Turner.  A  Te 
Deum  well  adapted  for  small  choirs. 

"Exercises  for  Training  the  Boy's  Voice." — By 
Ernest  Douglas.  An  admirable  little  manual,  indispens- 
able to  directors  of  male  choirs.  The  underlying  prin- 
ciples of  voice  production  are  those  accepted  to-day  by 
leaders  in   the  profession. 

"Lullaby."— Chorus  for  mixed  voices.  By  Anton 
Dvorak.  One  of  the  finest  of  modern  choral  composi- 
tions.    An  exquisite  setting  of  a  lovely  melody. 

"Dinah."— Sentimental  negro  ballad  arranged  for 
mixed  voices.  By  Clayton  Johns.  An  old-time  planta- 
tion melody,  successfully  scored  for  chorus  work. 

CANADIAN  PATRIOTIC  AIRS. 

"Our  Father's  Land  and  Ours."— Patriotic  song. 
Music  by  C.  W.  Coates,  of  Methodist  Book  Room,  Mont- 
real. A  first-class  song  with  the  proper  suggestion  of 
military  ring  and  swing.  This  song  is  worthy  of  a  place 
beside  such  national  favorites  as  "The  Maple  Leaf  For- 
ever."   Whaley,  Royce  &  Co.,  Toronto,  publishers,

WALL      PAPER

LOOKING  TOWARDS  SPRING. 

WITH  Christmas  over  and  the  holiday  trade  a  thing 
of  the  past,  merchants  can  now  turn  their  atten- 
tion with  some  degree  of  care  to  the  necessaries 
for  Spring.  Will  this  Spring's  business  bulk  up  more 
than  last  year's  ?  That  is  the  important  question,  be- 
cause week  for  week  and  month  for  month  the  merchant 
should  attempt  to  excel  his  previous  records. 

To  accomplish  this  there  must  be  no  let-up  in  energy 
and  enterprise.  Make  all  the  departments  go  with 
an  additional  hum.  Take  time  to  look  over  every  man's 
samples.  There  is  no  knowing  when  something  may  turn 
up  which  will  just  suit  your  particular  trade.  Even  if 
there  is  nothing  you  want  it  will  freshen  you  up  to  take 
a  look  at  what  others  are  buying. 

However,  there  is  another  way  to  increase  business, 
and  that  is  to  take  a  department  which  has  not  hitherto 
been  pushed,  or  has  been  altogether  neglected,  and  make 
a  feature  of  it. 

Profit  in  Wall  Paper. 

Have  you  really  worked  the  wall  paper  department 
for  all  it  was  worth  in  the  past  ?  The  chances  are  you 
haven't.  Supposing  you  lay  out  from  now  till  Spring  to 
open  up  a  good  live  campaign.  Make  your  selection  of 
papers  now  when  you  have  the  complete  range  to  choose 
from.  Plan  big.  Order  enough  to  make  a  good  big 
showing.  You  can  do  this  without  any  great  expenditure 
of  capital,  for  wall  paper  can  be  bought  in  very  cheap 
grades. 

You  will  not  find  a  department  which  will  prove  more 
satisfactory  than  this.  It  is  neat,  clean  stuff  to  handle  ; 
it  is  sold  in  definite  quantities,  that  is  to  say,  in  com- 
plete rolls  ;  there  is  no  cutting  nor  measuring  required  ; 
and  finally,  it  is  sold  in  large  enough  quantities  to  make 
each  sale  worth  while. 

Prepare  in  Advance. 

Anticipation  is  the  keynote  for  the  present.  The  de- 
partment is  quiescent  now,  but  none  the  less,  now  is  the 
time  to  complete  preparations.  Selections  should  be  made 
and  the  necessary  quantity  estimated.  Then  decide  upon 
the  way  you  will  handle  the  stock,  where  you  will  keep 
it  and  how  bring  it  before  the  public. 

It  is  too  often  the  case  that  merchants  do  not  look 
beyond  the  week  in  which  they  are  living.  After  all,  is 
not  this  one  of  the  chief  reasons  of  success  for  such  men 
as  Timothy  Eaton,  namely,  that  they  can  see  far  enough 
ahead  to  anticipate  the  wants  of  the  public  ?  Be  provi- 
dent and  decide  upon  your  course  now  while  you  have 
time.  Novel  schemes  for  assisting  sales  should  be  figured 
out  during  the  quiet  season,  not  while  the  stress  of  busi- 
ness is  upon  one. 


"Yes,"  said  the  general  merchant,  "it  is  true  that 
we  propose  to  establish  a  hospital  as  an  adjunct  to  our 
store."  "To  treat  the  victims  of  the  bargain  rushes  ?" 
was  asked.  "Yes,  but  that  is  merely  a  beginning.  Later 
on  I  expect  to  see  the  business  branch  out,  and  I  dare 
say  we  shall  treat  all  comers  for  all  sorts  of  complaints 
at  exceptionally  low  figures.  In  my  mind's  eye  I  can 
see  our  advertisement  reading  : 

"  'SPECIAL  THIS   DAY  ONLY  ! 

"  'Appendicitis  Operations  at  Cut  Rates. 

'  'Positively,    Only   One   Operation    to    Each    Customer  !

We  Have  Been  Asked  the  Question 


"  Why  do  you  claim  'Kohinoor'  Pencils 
to  be  the  Standard  Pencils  of  the  world?" 

We  will  tell  you : 

BECAUSE  of  their  splendid  quality. 
BECAUSE  every  sale  makes  a  pleased  customer. 
BECAUSE  they  never  become  "dead"  stock. 
BECAUSE  they  are  worth  their  cost  always. 
BECAUSE  they  suit  every  purpose  c  f  a  pencil, 

being  made  in  17  degrees. 
BECAUSE  a  dealer  can  always  suit  a  customer 

with  "Kohinoor"   Pencils,    and  rarely 

can  with  others. 
BECAUSE  dealers  don't  have  to  carry  a  stock  of 

thousands      of     slow    selling     pencils. 

Kohinoor    Pencils   sell   quickly,  and 

without   special   effort   on  the  dealer's 

part. 
BECAUSE  it  pays   to  handle  and  be  identified 

with  such  high  class  goods. 

We  can  give  more  reasons,  if  necessary, 
and  we  believe   other  dealers   can  too.

The  H.  W.  Wilson  Company,  Minneapolis,  publish-

partments. A  new  company,  the  Index  Press,  has  been 
organized,  in  which  the  H.  W.  Wilson  Company  hold  a 
controlling  interest,  to  do  the  manufacturing  work  of  the 
H.  W.  Wilson  Company.  The  new  company  will  occupy 
the  basement  of  the  new  building  which  has  just  been 
erected  for  the  H.  W.  Wilson  Company  and  will,  hi. addi- 
tion to  doing  the  printing  and  binding  of  the  Wilson 
Company,  do  commercial  printing  and  binding  also.  The 
new  building,  which  is  now  practically  campleted,  will  be 
occupied  by  the  II.  W.  Wilson  Company  with  its  book 
store  and  publication  department,  including  business  of- 
fices and  editorial  rooms.  The  building  is  absolutely  lire- 
proof,  two  storeys  and  a  high  basement,  constructed  of

Naples  Linens 

The  extra  wide  laid  effect  shown  in  our  new 
Naples  Linen  Stationery  is  the  latest  novelty  in 
fine  Note  Paper  and  Envelopes.  The  exquisite 
writing  surface,  together  with  the  general  high- 
class  appearance  of  the  stock  itself,  will  make  it 
one  of  the  most  popular  numbers  made  for  the 
Canadian  trade. 

Wexford  Weaver 

The  most  successful  hit  in  the  way  of  fine 
Stationery,  is  the  proper  term  to  apply  to  our 
Wexford  Weave.  The  two  first  makings 
are  already  exhausted,  but  the  third  is  ready  for 
delivery,  and  orders  can  be  filled  immediately. 
Ask  for  a  show  card  if  you  have  not  received 
one.      It  will  help.

OUR  OFFER  TO  THE 
TRADE  IS 


LIBERAL 


i 


BUT  OUR  POLICY 
AS  PRODUCERS  IS 

CONSERVATIVE 

Why  are  we  Conservative  ?  Because,  while  we  are 
constantly  watching  scientific  developments,  with  n 
view  to  improving  our  goods,  if  possible,  we  don't  make 
changes  "hap-hazard"  before  we  know  they  are  for  the 
better. 

Why  are  we  Liberal  ?  First — because  we  like 
such  a  policy,  and  then  we  find  the  trade  appreciates  it. 

We  take  our  stand  on  the  attractiveness  of  our 
packages — which  draws  the  attention — and  on  the 
quality  of  our  goods — which  holds  the  patronage  If 
you  haven't  investigated  these  claims  for  vourself,  win- 
not— DO  IT  NOW?

What 
%wmoon   Has  Done 


The  Dennison  Manufacturing  Company  is  a  pioneer  in  paperdom.     One 

of  their  greatest  achievements  was  the  "Tag  "  which  they  made  practical  years 

ago  by  their  patent  paper  eyelet.     This  Tag  was  first  used  as  a  shipping  tag,  but 

has  been  steadily  promoted  to  fill  a  thousand  other  good  offices,  until  to-day 

systematic   business   can   not  get  along  without  it.     The  consumption  of  tags    to-day  is  enormous  all 

because  Dennison  demonstrated  ways  for  the  tag  to  help  in  every  kind  of  business. 

So  also  has  Dennison  originated  Crepe  Paper,  and  to-day  makes  the  only  fine  grade  suitable  for 
artistic  purposes.  This  Crepe  Paper  is  another  example  of  the  Dennison  progressiveness.  The  people 
have  been  shown  in-  picture  and  told  in  print  of  the  thousands  of  beautiful  decorations  and  embel- 
lishments that  can  be  made  from  this  paper.  Its  extensive  range  of  colors  and  tints — Decorated  Crepe 
with  designs  in  harmonious  colors.  It  is  the  ""art  simple  "  in  which  people  can  create  beautiful  things 
to  decorate  the  home,  table  and  church  bazaars  at  little  cost. 

Dennison's  dainty  Crepe  Paper  Napkins  in  color  designs  are  considered  indispensable  at  all 
informal  society  jollifications. 

Dennison's  Passe-Partout  Bindings  in  all  colors  for  Home  Picture  Framing,  and  the  Patent  Pin 
Tubes  of  Glue,  Paste  and  Mucilage — air-tight. 

What  Dennison  is  Doing  Now ! 

Spending  thousands  of  dollars  in  the  leading  magazines  and  home  journals  telling  the  women  of 
the  entire  country  what  they  can  do  with  this  remarkable  Crepe  Paper,  the  Passe-Partout  Bindings  and 
the  wonderful  Patent  Tubes  of  Qlue,  Paste  and  Mucilage. 

What  does  all  this  mean  to  the  dealer?  If  he  co-operates  with  us,  it  means  profit  to  us  both  !  The 
advertisements  now  running  bring  in  replies  at  the  rate  of  a  thousand  per  day,  and  our  answer  to  all  is 
"your  local  dealer  keeps  a  supply  of  Dennison's  Goods!"    Do  you? 

We  are  fast  establishing  a  good-will  with  dealers  throughout  this  broad  land.  We  welcome  your  cor- 
respondence and  inquiries,  and  are  prepared  to  furnish  all  with  our  handsome  booklets  which  tell  by  word 
and  picture  how  to  make  delightful  things  with  "Dennison's  Goods."  Consider  this  outburst  as  applying 
to  you,  and  write  us.

THE    BRITISH    PUBLISHER    AND    CANADA 


IN    commenting   in    a   recent   number  of   Bookseller   and 
Stationer  on  the  establishment  of  a  branch  office  of 

MacMillan  &  Company  in  Canada,  the  statement  was 
made  that  "For  a  long  time  it  has  been  the  ha'bit  of 
English  publishers  to  disparage  Canada,  but  the  day 
when  .such  disparagement  is  in  keeping  with  conditions  is 
long  past." 

This  statement  has  evoked  some  comment,  and  we 
are  glad  that  the  attention  of  English  publishers  has 
been  awakened.  The  following  letter  will  prove  of  in- 
terest in  'this   connection. 

A  Protest. 

The  Editor  Bookseller  and  Stationer  :— I  was  sur- 
prised to  read  your  statement  in  the  November  number 
of  the  Bookseller  "That  it  has  been  for  r<  long  time  the 
habit  of  English  publishers  to  disparage  Canada."  I 
cannot  understand  this,  as  the  number  of  books  on  and 
about  Canada  published  on  this  side  tend  to  show  that 
this  is  far  from  being  the  case.  I  enclose,  for  instance. 
a  selected  list  of  a  dozen  books  published  by  us  on 
Canada,  and  I  know  I  could  add  many  others.  Apart 
from  this  may  I  be  permitted  to  say  that  I,  for  one, 
have  had  the  pleasure  of  calling  personally  on  a  large 
number  of  the  leading  Canadian  booksellers,  and  my  rep- 
resentatives have  from  time  to  time  made  special  jour- 
neys since  that  date.  In  addition  to  this,  I  might  add 
that  for  some  considerable  time  previous  to  the  an- 
nouncement you  make  in  your  November  issue,  I  had  my 
regular  agent  in  residence  at  2  Carlton  street,  corner 
Yonge  street,  Toronto,  (now  at  21  Richmond  street 
west)        *»»»******     ****«»»* 

I  cannot  help  feeling,  however,  that  the  English  pub- 
lishers do  not  always  get  that  support  from  the  Can- 
adian booksellers  which  they  deserve;  one  hears  constant- 
ly of  Canadian  booksellers  supplying  American  editions 
of  English  books  in  cases  where  only  the  United  States 
market  was  sold  to   the  American  publishers. 


Let  me  add,  I  read  your  journal  from  month  to 
month  with  a  great  deal  of  interest,  and  am  always  glad 
to  give  consideration  to  any  suggestion  that  you  make 
for  the  promotion  of  business  between  England  and 
Canada. 

T.   FISHER  UNWIN. 

London,  Dec.   8,   1905. 

Our  Position. 

So  far  as  Mr1.  Unwin  is  himself  concerned,  and  a  few 
other  English  publishers  whom  we  might  name,  our 
charge  falls  flat.  But  at  the  time  we  wrote  the  sentence 
referred  to,  we  were  generalizing  on  the  experiences  of 
our  London  representative.  He  had  patiently  and  per- 
sistently visited  the  publishers  of  London  and  com- 
municated with  English  publishers  outside  London,  and 
it  was  his  experience  that  the  average  English  publisher 
disparaged  Canada  and  saw  no  use  in  cultivating  the 
Canadian  field.  With  this  first-hand  evidence  we  felt  no 
uncertainty  in  making  the  general  statement  which  we 
did. 

It  is  a  pleasure  to  observe  the  change  which  is 
gradually  taking  place  in  the  attitude  of  English  pub- 
lishers towards  Canada.  The  opening  of  branch  offices 
shows  that  the  English  publisher  is  beginning  to  grasp 
the  situation  and  to  realize  that  now  is  the  time  to  get 
in  on  the  ground  floor.  In  a  few  years  the  advantage 
now  offered  may  cease  to  exist. 

A  New  Feature. 
A  new  and  noteworthy  feature  of  the  situation  just 
at  present  is  the  announcement  of  the  establishment  of  a 
branch  office  of  the  Musson  Book  Company.  Limited. 
of  Toronto,  Canada,  in  London,  England.  Particulars 
as  to  the  functions  of  this  office  are  given  elsewhere.  In 
brief  it  will  serve  as  an  agency  for  securing  Canadian 
editions  of  English  books,  handling  English  books  for 
the  Canadian  market,  and  placing  Canadian  books  on  th« 
English  market.

McLEOD  &  ALLEN. 

A  cheap  edition  of  "The  Pillar  of  Light,"  by  Louis 
Tracy,  has  just  been  placed  on  the  market  by  McLeod  & 
Allen.  The  paper  edition  is  issued  at  25  cents  and  the 
cloth  edition  at  50  cents. 

McLeod  &'  Allen  have  just  brought  out  a  Canadian  edi- 
tion of  "Divine^Fire,"  by  May  Sinclair,  in  cloth  at  $1.25. 
This  is  probably  the  most  talked  of  novel  of  the  moment. 

"Karl  Grier"  is  the  title  of  Louis  Tracy's  new  novel, 
which  will  be  issued  almost  immediately  in  cloth  and 
paper  editions  at  $1.25  and  75  cents  respectively.  Karl 
Grier  was  possessed  of  a  sixth  sense  called  "telegnomy," 
which  enabled  him  to  beat  off  the  attack  of  rascals  three 
thousand  miles  away. 

Gordon  Holmes,  who  wrote  "A  Mysterious  Disappear- 
ance," has  surpassed  himself  in  a  new  story  of  love  and 
mystery,  which  he  has  called  "The  Arncliffe  Puzzle."  Mc- 
Leod &  Allen  will  publish  the  novel  shortly.  ($1.25  and 
75  cents.) 

Among  other  early  publications  of  McLeod  &  Allen 
are  "Alton  of  Samasco,"  by  Harold  Bindloss,  "Double 
Trouble,"  by  Herbert  Quick,  and  "The  Storm  Signal," 
by  Gustave  F.  Mertins.    (Cloth  $1.25,  paper  75  cents.) 

"The  Weight  of  a  Crown"  is  the  title  of  a  new  novel 
by  Fred  M.  White,  author  of  "The  Crimson  Blind."  The 
plot  introduces  the  problem  of  dual  identity,  there  being 
two  girls,  identical  in  appearance,  who  change  places  for 
a  short  time.     (Cloth  $1.25,  paper  75  cents.) 

WILLIAM  BRIGGS. 

William  Briggs  has  secured  the  Canadian  market  for 
several  of  the  most  important  novels  of  the  year.  Proba- 
bly the  most  interesting  will  be  "Sir  Nigel,"  the  sequel 
to  "The  White  Company,"  by  Sir  A.  Conan  Doyle,  which 
is  at  present  running  serially  in  the  English  Strand.  It 
will  not  be  published  in  book  form  until  the  Autumn. 

Miss  Marie  Corelli's  new  novel,  the  title  of  which  has 
not  as  yet  been  announced,  will  be  published  this  Autumn 
by  William  Briggs. 

S.   R.   Crockett  has  been  lavishing  particular  care  on 


his  new  romance,  "The  White  Plume."  This  will  also  be 
among  the  early   Autumn  publications  of  this  house. 

Still  another  important  Fall  publication  will  be  a  new 
novel  by  Robert  Hichens,  author  of  "The  Garden  of  Al- 
lah." William  Briggs  also  has  on  his  list  new  novels  by 
Ellen  Thorneycroft  Fowler  and  William  le  Queux,  the 
titles  of  which  will  be  announced  later. 

A  second  75-cent  cloth  edition  of  "When  it  was  Dark," 
by   Guy  Thorne,   will  be  ready  shortly. 

About  March  1  William  Briggs  will  publish  Canadian 
editions  of  two  remarkable  novels  by  Baroness  Orczy, 
"The  Scarlet  Pimpernel"  and  "A  Son  of  the  People." 
Both  books  have  created  great  interest  in  England,  where 
their  sale  has  been  enormous.  (Cloth  $1.25,  paper  75 
cents.) 

"Lady  Betty,"  by  C.  N.  and  A.  M.  Williamson,  au- 
thors of  "The  Lightning  Conductor"  and  "The  Princess 
Passes,"  will  be  issued  in  June.  The  story  narrates  the 
adventures  of  an  English  girl  in  America. 

In  March  will  be  published  "The  Mayor  of  Troy,"  by 
A.  T.  Quiller-Couch,  and  "The  High  Toby,"  by  H.  B. 
Marriott  Watson.    Both  authors  are  Englishmen. 

A  special  paper  edition  of  "The  House  with  the  Green 
Shutters,"  by  the  late  George  Douglas,  will  be  ready  on 
March  1.  This  book  won  a  remarkable  success  when  it 
was  first  published  several  years  ago.     (35  cents.) 

The  first  of  William  Briggs'  Spring  publications  to 
appear  is  "Madame,  Will  You  Walk  ?"  by  Beth  Ellis. 
This  book  has  just  appeared  in  a  cloth  edition  at  $1.25. 

MUSSON  BOOK  CO.,  LIMITED. 

The  Musson  Book  Company  have  just  published  the 
Canadian  edition  of  Ellen  Glasgow's  new  book,  "The 
Wheel  of  Life."  The  success  that  this  firm  has  had  with 
Miss  Glasgow's  former  books,  "The  Voice  of  the  People," 
"The  Deliverance,"  "The  Battleground,"  etc.,  would  in 
itself  justify  their  expectations  of  big  sales. 

'  The  Musson  Book  Company  announce  the  publication 
of  "Barbara  Winslow,  Rebel,"  by  Elizabeth  Ellis.  12  mo. 
cloth,  illustrated,  $1.50.  The  fearless  heroine  of  the  story 
is  most  fascinating.  The  cover  design  and  illustrations 
are  works  of  art. 

A  Canadian  edition  of  W.  Clark  Russell's  latest  ro- 
mance, "The  Yarn  of  old  Harbor  Town,"  is  on  the  Mus- 
son Book  Company's  Spring  list.  It  will  be  ready  in 
cloth  and  paper  editions  about  March  1.  ($1.25  and  75 
cents.) 

The  Musson  Book  Co.  will  be  the  Canadian  publishers 
of  the  new  novel  by  Guy  Thorne,  author  of  "When  it  was 
Dark."  The  title  is  "When  it  was  Ordained."  The  book 
will  be  issued  in  April. 

1HE  MACMILLAN  CO.,  OF  CANADA. 

"Tarry  at  Home  Travels,"  by  Dr.  Edward  Everett 
Hale,  is  announced  by  the  Macmillan  Company  for  Spring 
publication.  The  volume  will  be  richly  illustrated  from

form with  the  recent  one-volume  edition  of  Dr.  Hale's 
"Memories  of  a  Hundred  Years."

ley,"  which  the  Macmillan  Company  will  presently  issue. 
The  book  is  intended  to  meet  the  demand  for  a  life  of 
Wesley,  accurate  and  comprehensive,  yet  moderate  in  size 
and  attractive  in  style,  which  shall  be  of  interest  to  the 
general  reader  as  well  as  to  the  student  of  religious  his- 
tory. 

"Napoleon  and  His  Times"  is  the  title  of  the  new 
volume  in  the  Cambridge  Modern  History.  It  is  likely 
to  be  completed  in  time  for  issue  during  March.

of  preparation  by  the  Macmillan  Company^  who  hope  to 
bring  it  out  in  February.

list,  "If  Youth  but  Knew,"  by  Egerton  Castle,  "The 
Vine  of  Sibmah,"  by  Andrew  Macphail,  and  "The  Port- 
reeve," by  Eden  Phillpotts.  The  latter  appeared  on  Feb- 
ruary 9,  the  two  former  are  due  in  the  Spring. 

A  notable  demand  for  Mr.  Winston  Churchill's  life  of 
his  father,  "Lord  Randolph  Churchill,"  exists  in  Canada 
and  the  publishers  are  delighted  with  the  sale  to  date. 

"The  Garden,  You  and  I"  is  a  new  work  to  be  brought 
out  shortly,  written  by  Mabel  Osgood  Wright,  who  has 
made  public  the  fact  that  she  is  the  author  of  "The  Gar- 
den of  a  Commuter's  Wife." 

The  new  edition  of  Tennyson's  "In  Memoriam,"  which 
will  be  published  this  Spring,  will  contain  several  hither- 
to unpublished  poems  and  the  author's  own  notes.

W.  Deming,  and  Henry  Fangel.  No  recent  fiction  has 
been  so  elaborately  illustrated.  The  book  has  already 
been  enthusiastically  commended  by  various  United  States 
critics. 

Two  new  volumes  in  "The  Makers  of  Canada  Series" 
are  in  press  and  will  shortly  be  ready  for  sale— "Laval,"

has  just  appeared  with  the  imprint  of  the  Westminster 
Co.,  Toronto,  and  bearing  the  title  "Religion  as  Friend- 
ship with  God."  The  writer  elucidates  a  somewhat  new 
conception  of  religion,  introducing  modern  explanations 
of  difficulties  presented  by  old  doctrines.  His  style  is 
simple  and  didactic  and  the  book  will  he  found  most  help- 
ful to  the  perplexed  seeker  after  knowledge.  Rev.  Mr. 
MacKay  is  a  young  divine  from  whom  great  tilings  are  ex- 
pected in  the  Presbyterian  Church  in  Canada.

the  most  exciting  incidents  of  that  campaign.  The  book 
will  be  ready  in  the  early  Spring. 

John  Oxenham,  author  of  "Hearts  in  Exile,"  etc.,  has 
written  a  modern  English  novel,  "Giant  Circumstance," 
which  attracted  much  attention  during  its  serial  run  in 
Chambers's  Journal.  The  scene  opens  in  the  Soudan  but

Among  other  Spring  publications  may  be  mentioned

"Dearlove,"  by  Frances  Campbell,  and  a  volume  on  the

ception of  a  plantation  in  Virginia,  where  she  goes  to

Long  Arm,"  by  Samuel  M.  Gardenhire,  has  been  consid- 
erably held  back.    It  will  be  ready  about  February  15. 

A  paper  edition  of  "Nancy  Stair,"  by  Eleanor  M. 
Lane,  is  now  in  the  press.  This  charming  story  has  been 
in  growing  demand  for  many  months,  and  small  wonder, 
as  it  is  certainly  one  of  the  most  delightful  of  modern 
novels. 

A  cloth  edition  of  "The  Head  of  Gold,"  by  Mark  Ash- 
ton,  is  now  on  the  market.  In  paper,  this  book  sold  well

IMPORTANT  CONNECTIONS  MADE. 
The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  Arrange  for  Record  Import  Business 

MR.  WILLIAM  COPP,  vice-president  and  manager  of 
the  book  department  of  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.,  Lim- 
ited, has  just  returned  from  a  two  months'  trip  to 
the  Old  Country.  That  he  spent  the  time  to  excellent  ad- 
vantage is  evidenced  by  the  long  list  of  agencies  which  he 
secured  and  the  splendid  arrangements  lie  has  made  for 
import  book  business. 

First  and  foremost,  he  has  secured  the  exclusive  Cana- 
dian agency  for  all  the  publications  of  the  important 
London  house  of  James  Nisbet  <x  Co.  The  number  of 
books  published  by  this  firm  is  enormous,  including  many 
interesting  series  of  juveniles  by  such  well  known  authors 
as  R.  M.  Ballantyne,  Mrs.  Marshall,  Agnes  Giberne,  and 
others.  James  Nisbet  &  Co.  are  also  the  publishers  of 
the  works  of  Frances  Ridley  Havergal,  Susan  War- 
ner, and  J.  R.  Macduff.  The  trade  should  note 
in  this  connection  that  Nisbet  &  Co.  will  not  in  future 
send  a  traveler  to  Canada,  but  that  all  orders  must  be 
placed    through   The   Copp,    Clark   Co. 

Another  house  for  which  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  are 
now  the  sole  Canadian  agents  is  that  of  H.  Grevel  & 
Co.,  London,  publishers  of  works  on  art.  Their  list  is 
verj  extensive,  but  it  mieht  be  as  well  to  note  a  series 
of  monographs  on  artists,  richly  illustrated  and  tastefully 
bound,  and  also  a  series  of  illustrated  monographs  on  the 
history  of  the  great  art  centres  of  the  world. 

The  sole  Canadian  agency  for  Arthur  C.  Fifield,  Lon- 
don, has  alsoibeen  secured  by  Mr.  Copp.  In  Mr.  Fifield's 
lis.t  may  be  noted  the  "Simple  Life  Series,"  consisting  of 
23  booklets,  tasteful  in  gel-up,  suggestive  in  matter  and 
appealing  to  thoughtful  people,  and  the  "Brochure"  series 
of  tastefully  produced  booklets,  printed  in  old  style  hand- 
set type  and  printed  on  heavy   antique  paper. 

A  Scotch  publisher,  Alexander  Gardner,  of  Paisley, 
has  given  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  exclusive  control  of  his 
publications  in  Canada.  He  has  a  long  list  of  works  by 
Scotchmen,  including  R  Scott  Fittis,  David  Macrae,  Rob- 
ert   Ford   and  others. 

Other  Old  Country  publishers  for  whom  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  are  agents  in  Canada  are  Methuen  A;  Co., 
Duckworth  &  Co.,  and  R.  &  T.  Washbourne,  publishers 
of  Roman  Catholic  books.  These  are  in  addition  to 
Blackie  &  Son,  of  Edinburgh,  and  Isaac  Pitman  and  Cas- 
tell  Bros.,  of  London,  all  of  whom  have  Jieen  represented 
in   Canada   by  The  Copp,    Clark   Co.   for  several  years. 

When  in  the  Old  Country  Mr.  Copp  arranged  for  the 
exclusive  control  in  Canada  of  certain  publications  of  the 
following  publishers  :  Hodder  &  Slouch  ton,  John  Long, 
C.  Arthur  Pearson,  George  Allen,  James  Clarke  &  Co., 
Bradbury,  Agnew  &  Co.,  Chapman  &  Hall,  T.  Fisher 
[Jnwin,  Hutchinson  &  Co.,  and  A.  Constable  &  Co.,  of 
London  ;   David  Bryce  &   Son,  of  Glasgow. 

Finally,  special  terms  were  made  with  the  following 
publishers  for  supplying  particular  publications  :  Wm. 
Heinemann,  Chat  to,  tV  Windus,  George  Bell  &  Sons,  John 
Lane,  Cassell  &  Co.,  Grant  Richards,  David  Nutt,  Kegan 
Paul  Trench  &  Co.,  Wm.  Collins,  Sons  &  Co.,  Seeley  & 
Co.,   Hurst  &   Blackett,  and  Pall  Mall  Gazette. 

In  addition  to  t lie  annuals  which  The  Copp,  Clark  Co. 
handled  in  previous  years,  such  as  Cassell's  Magazine, 
Quiver,  Little  Folks,  and  Canadian  Children's  Treasury, 
they  will  this  year  control  the  Child's  Companion,  Cot-, 
tager  and  Artisan,  and  Our  Little  Dots,  three  publica- 
tions of  the  Religious  Tract  Society. 

To  complete  the  list  of  publishers  for  whom  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  are  agents,  mention  must  be  made  of  the  two 


American   houses  of   L.    C.    Page   &    Co.,   Boston,    and   W. 
B.  Perkins,  of  New   York. 

The  book  travelers  of  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  start  out 
almost  immediately  with  a  complete  line  of  import  sam- 
ples. 


LIBRARY  PARAGRAPHS. 

THE  TORONTO  PUBLIC  LIBRARY,  the  Toronto 
University  Library,  and  McGill  University  Library, 
are  the  proud  possessors  of  the  only  three  copies 
of  a  remarkable  book  which  have  come  to  Canada.  This 
is  the  "Catalogue  and  Investigations  in  Jade,"  printed 
by  Theodore  L,.  DeVinne  &  Co.,  of  New  \ork,  in  a 
limited  edition,  and  prepared  by  George  F.  Kuntz,  the 
gem  expert  of  Tittany's.  The  book  is  an  exquisite  piece 
of  workmanship,  and  the  illustrations  are  all  from 
copper-plate.  Jade  is  a  mineral,  and  the  book  tells  all 
that  is  known  about  it  up  to  the  present  time. 

Mr.  W.  H.  Lovering  has  been  elected  chairman  of  the 
Hamilton  Public  Library  Board. 

The  total  number  of  books  in  the  Vancouver  library 
is  now  11,013.  The  number  of  books  issued  during  the

cards  issued  was  1,352,  making  a  total  of  15,600  bor-

number  of  books  issued.  The  total  receipts  for  the  year 
were  $15,811.33,  and  the  disbursements  about  the  same 
amount.  Librarian  Hunter's  salary  lias  been  increased 
$100  a  year. 

The  Niagara  Falls  Public  Library  contains  6,000 
volumes,  and  its  membership  numbers  125.  $117  was 
spent  on  new  books  during  1905,  and  $56  on  magazines.

patrons  of  the  Tillsonburg  Public  Library.  There  was  a 
decrease  in  the  number  of  books  of  fiction  issued  and  an 
increase  in  the  number  of  magazines.  Books  of  history,

Rebel 


BY 


ELIZABETH  ELLIS 


Not    a    Civil    War     story,     as    the    title    might    imply,     but    a 
delightful     and     enthralling    tale    of    adventure    and    romance. 

"A  HEROINE  FEARLESS  OF  HEN,  HICE  AND  DEVILS." 


"This  novel  contains  some 
of  the  most  dramatic  scenes 
in    recent    fiction." 


The  following  TOAST 
well  describes  the  be- 
witching heroine  : 

"To  the  bravest  comrade 
in  misfortune,  the  sweet- 
est companion  in  peace, 
and  at  all  times  the  most 
courageous  of   women  — 

BARBARA 

WINSLOW." 


A  most  unusual  and  beauti- 
ful cover   in    several    colors.

THE  SCARLET  PIMPERNEL 

BY  baroness  orczy 

Cloth  SI. 23 

This  book  is  a  leading  seller  in  England. 
Ten  editions  have  already  been  called  for.  As 
the  book  has  been  dramatized  there  is  sure  to 
be  a  big  and  steady  demand  for  it.

A  SON  OF  THE  PEOPLE 

Cloth  $1.25 

"The  Scarlet  Pimpernel"  has  run  into  about 
ten  editions  in  ten  months'  time,  and  so  great 
was  the  rush  for  the  last  edition  in  England 
that  the  publishers  lost  the  sale  of  thousands  of 
copies.     The  book  has  been  dramatized. 

"A  Son  of  thi  People,"  by  the  same  author, 
is  to  our  mind  even  better  than  "The  Scarlet 
Pimpernel."  These  books  will  be  very  popu- 
lar daring  1906.

February,  1906 


THE   AMERICAN   ILLUSTRATED   MAGAZINE   Eor 
February   has    an    exceptionally     good     automobile 
article,   entitled   "The  Heart   of   the   Automobile," 
which  describes  the  evolution  of  the  motor  car  from  the 
grotesjque  productions  of  a  century  ago.     Several  of  these 
odd   vehicles  are   illustrated. 

The  publishers  of  McClure's  Magazine  announce  a  new 
serial  by  Rudyard  Kipling  to  begin  in  the  May  issue. 

Mr.  Clement  K.  Shorter  has  resigned  the  editorial 
chair  of  the  Tatler  and  has  been  succeeded  by  Mr.  Arthur 
Croxton. 

Archibald  Constable  &  Co.,  Limited,  are  now  the 
English  publishers  of  the  Atlantic  Monthly.  The  price 
in  England  is  one  shilling  per  number. 

Frank  A.  Mvtnsey  announces  a  new  magazine,  to  be 
called  the  Scrap  Book.  He  is  also  making  extensive 
improvements  in  Munsey's  Magazine,  beginning  with  the 
March  number. 

John  Brisben  Walker  has  resumed  the  publication  of 
the  Twentieth  Century  Home,  which  he  suspended  last 
May  when  he  sold  the  Cosmopolitan  to  Hearst.  It  sells 
at  five,  cents  a  copy. 

In  the  March  Pall  Mall  will  be  found  a  valuable  ar- 
ticle on  "Manchester  and  its  Industries,"  written  and 
illustrated  by  William  Hyde.  "Music  as  a  Theme  for 
Art"   is  another  notable  article. 

In  the  March  Atlantic  Monthly  will  be  found  "Love  of 
Wealth  and  the  Public  Service,"  "Some  Equivocal 
Rights  of  Labor,"  "Shakespeare  and  the  Stage,"  "Ana- 
tole  France,"   and  several   stories. 

The  most  notable  contribution  to  the  February  Critic 
is  "The  Great  Commonplaces  of  Reading,"  by  John  Mor- 
ley.  "Journalism  the  Destroyer  of  Literature,"  by 
Julian  Hawthorne,  is  a  strong  attack  on  journalism. 

The  February  Windsor  is  largely  a  fiction  number 
with  stories  by  Anthony  Hope,  H.  B.  Marriott  Watson, 
Justus  Miles  Forman,  and  others.  "The  Art  of  Mr. 
George  W.  Joy"  is  illustrated  with  numerous  reproduc- 
tions of  his  paintinsrs. 

In  Chambers's  Journal  for  February  is  to  be  found 
"Tips  and  Tipping,"  "A  Sea  Railway,"  "Toastiana," 
"Fish  Hospitals."  "The  Hurry  and  Bustle  of  Modern 
Life,"  "The  Habits  of  Wild  Animals,"  "Bygone  Perth- 
shire,"  "Old  Trish   Silver,"   etc. 

The  publishers  of  the  Cosmopolitan  will  create  a  sen- 
sation when  their  March  number  appears.  It  will  con- 
tain the  opening  article  of  a  series  in  which  David  Gra- 
ham Phillips  will  attack  the  United  States  Senate.  A 
serious  condition  of  affairs  will  be  disclosed. 

The  Royal  can  always  be  relied  on  to  produce  a  strik- 
ing cover.  The  February  design  is  particularly  taking, 
showing  an  open  hand  containing  four  pennies,  the  price 
of  the  magazine.  Surely  dealers  should  have  little  diffi- 
culty in  disposing  of  this  bright  publication. 

"Frenzied  Finance"  is  concluded  in  the  February 
number  of  Everybody's,  though  Thomas  W.  Lawson  will 
continue  to  contribute  articles  on  financial  subjects  to 
future    numbers.       Sir    Gilbert    Parker's    novelette.      'The 


Stake  and  the  Plumb  Line,"  begins  in  the  February   num- 
ber. 

A  discussion  on  the  Canadian  customs  tariff  will  be  a

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


jaunt  through  Europe,  by  the  automobile  enthusiast, 
Henry  Norman,  M.P.  The  title  of  his  article,  "The 
Flowing  Road,"  suggests  the  well-known  style  of  this 
popular  writer,  who  has  infused  such  genuine  enthusiasm 
and  love  for  the  outdoor  life  into  this  fascinating  ac- 
count, that  all  who  read  the  March  Scribner's  will 
surely  become  enthusiasts  of  this  wonderful  modern 
traveling  machine. 

Thomas  Nelson  Page,  one  of  the  must  popular  Am- 
erican writers  of  the  day,  contributes  a-  short  story,  and 
Francis  Wilson,  the  American  actor,  and  by  the  way, 
a  charming  scholarly  gentleman  as  well,  writes  most 
entertainingly  of  the  personality  of  the  late  .Joseph 
Jefferson,  famous  all  over  this  continent  for  his  inter- 
pretation of  Rip  Van  Winkle. 

A   STUPENDOUS  UNDERTAKING. 

PROBABLY  the  largest  enterprise  ever  undertaken  by 
any  publisher  in  popularizing  the  best  of  the 
world's  literature,  is  being  undertaken  by  J.  M. 
Dent  &  Co.,  af  London,  England,  already  famed  as  pub- 
lishers of  the  Temple  Editions  of  Shakespeare,  Scott, 
Dickens,  etc.  The  new  enterprise  is  to  include  1,000 
volumes,  embracing  every  work  of  importance  in  the 
literature  of  the  world,  and  the  series  is  to  be  known  as 
Every  Man's  Library. 

The  volumes  are  printed  in  clear  type,  on  a  specially 
made  paper,  which  is  almost  as  thin  as  India  paper  and 
absolutely  opaque.  It  possesses  many  advantages  that 
India  paper  lacks.  By  this  means  lengthy  works  are 
compressed  into  handy  volumes.  The  size  of  the  book  is 
somewhat  larger  than  the  average  •classical  reprint,  be- 
ing more  of  a  libtrary  edition.  The  bindings  are  limp 
roan  or  cloth. 

It  would  be  impossible  to  enumerate  even  a  fraction 
of  the  titles,  but  it  might  be  explained  that  the  library 
is  divided  into  sections,  as  follows  :  Biography,  child 
ren's-,  classical,  essays  and  belles  letters,  fiction,  his- 
tory, philosophy  and  theology,  poetry  and  drama,  ro- 
mance, science  and  travel. 

As  regards  price,  the  leather  edition,  which  will  un 
doubtedly  be  the  favorite  edition  in  Canada,  is  sold  at 
2  shillings.  Contrast  this  with  the  average  3s.  bd. 
classical  reprint,  and  one  wonders  how  it  can  be  done. 
The  sale  of  Every  Man's  Library  in  Canada  is  controlled 
by  William  Briggs,  and  advance  orders  to  date  have  been 
exceptionally   large. 


TEE  E.  H.  HARCOURT  CO.,  LIMITED. 

IN   one  or  two  issues  of  Bookseller  and   Stationer  there 
have  been  brief  references  to  the  E.  II .  Harcourt  Com- 
pany, Limited,  Toronto,  Canada.  Bookseller  and  Sta- 
tioner is  now   glad   to    be     able   to    tell   something     more 
definite   about   the   company   and   its   president. 

The  E.  H.  Harcourt  Company,  Limited,  was  incor 
porated  in  October,  1905,  as  lithographers,  printers,  pub- 
lishers and  manufacturing  stationers,  and  in-  Novemlber  of 
the  same  year  purchased  the  valuable  and  historic  build- 
ing and  property  at  and  adjoining  255  Wellington  street 
west,  Toronto.  The  interior  of  the  larger  portion  .of  the 
building  has  beeni remodelled  and  work  in  this  direction  is 
still  proceeding.  The  lot  on  which  the  building  stands  is 
35x121  feet  and  the  plans  of  the  company  are  to  erect  a 
three-storey  structure  at  the  base  of  the  lot,  thus  giving 
12,000  square  feet  floor  space  in  all.  The  lot  adjoining, 
56x121,  will  be  utilized  as  occasion  demands. 

The  advent  of  the  E.  H.  Harcourt  Company  into  the 
publishing  and  manufacturing  stationery  field  is  but  an- 
other of  the  many  instances  which  prove  not  only  Can- 
ada's growth  in  general  but  Toronto's  growth  in  particu- 


lar. Yet  while  opportunity  is  usually  the  stepping-stone 
to  successful  industry,  no  company  in  this  day  of  weighty 
competition  could  hope  to  pilot  itself  through  on  the 
strength  of  the  country's  growth  alone.  A  new  company 
must  know  its  possibilities  and  limitations  at  the  nut 
set  and  be  prepared  to  do  things  in  the  genesis  of  it- 
career. 

Just  here  the  potency  of  the  E.  H.  Harcourt  Coin 
pany  lies.  Instead  of  following  in  the  beaten  path  the 
company  will  hew  out  a  course  of  its  own.  A  feature  will 
be  made  of  manufacturing  specialties,  such  as  tablets, 
exercise  and  scribbling  books,  note  and  drawing  books. 
and  all  school  blanks.  The  company  now  have  presses 
going  and  a  staff  engaged  turning  out  orders,  and  we  are 
informed   that   samples  will   be   ready    shortly. 

Mr.  E.  H.  Harcourt,  president  of  the  company,  is  a 
man  of  large  experience  arid  ripe  judgment.  He  has  had 
an  uninterrupted  connection  with  the  trad^  for  a  period 
extending  over  a  quarter  of  a  century.  Vet  he  is  just 
forty-two  years  of  age — in  the   prime  of  life. 

Mr.    Harcourt   commenced  his   "road"    days   before    he 


reached  his  majority.  He  made  his  first  trip  for  The 
Copp,  Clark  Co.,  Limited  (then  Copp  &  ('lark)  at  the 
age  of  sixteen.  The  territory  covered  was  the  north  and 
west — scattered  enough  in  those  days. 

Mr.  Harcourt  continued  to  travel,  at  intervals,  for 
about  ten  years,  all  the  while  imbibing  and  assimilating 
that  knowledge  of  trade  and  country  now  so  valuable  to 
him.  In  1890  he  made  his  first  buying  trip  and  in  the 
same  year  was  appointed  manager  of  the  stationtery  de- 
partment, which  position  he  held  with  credit  to  himself 
and  satisfaction  to  the  company  for  eleven  years.  In 
1901  the  managership  of  the  manufactory  was  tendered 
and  accepted  and  Mr.  Harcourt  continued  to  act  in  that 
capacity  until  his  withdrawal  to  form  the  E.  II.  liar  . 
court   Company,    Limited. 

The  best  wishes  of  friends  an'd  former  associates  and 
the  confidence  of  the  trade  will  be  heartily  extended  to 
Mr.  Harcourt  now  that  he  has  entered  into  broader  ac- 
tivities. And  surrounded  by  capable,  practical  and  far- 
seeing  directors,  the  company  of  which  he  is'  the  head 
should  rapidly  gain  that  measure  of  recognition  due  the 
enterprise  and  sagacity  of  its  promoters.

STILL  BOOMING. 

LAST  year  many  people  were  heard  to  proclaim  that 
the  picture  post  card  business  in  Canada  had  reach- 
ed its  high-water  mark.  They  prophesied  a  decline  this 
year.  They  said  it  would  be  impossible  for  the  craze  to 
last  much   longer. 

Five  years  ago  a  similar  class  of  people  were  pro- 
claiming that  the  post  card  trade  on  the  continent  of 
Europe  had  reached  a  climax.  They,  too,  said  the  busi- 
ness would  begin  to  fall  off  the  following  year.  Were 
they   right  in  their  prophecy  ? 

Returned  travelers  from  Europe  tell  us  that  there  is 
no  apparent  let-up  in  the  volume  of  the  post  card  trade 
in  Germany,  France  and  other  continental  countries,  while 
in  England  it  is  as  huge  as  ever.  The  ingenuity  of  thou- 
sands of  artists,  printers  and  publishers  is  being  taxed  to 
the  utmost  to  keep  the  insatiable  public  supplied  with 
novelties. 

What  is  the  natural  inference  ?  To  us  it  seems  that 
the  croakings  of  the  pessimists  are  unfounded  and  that 
the  picture  post  card  trade  in  Canada  will  flourish  and 
increase  for   several   years   to   come.     The  evidence   up   to 


the  present  time  this  year  is  overwhelmingly  in  favor  of 
this  belief.  A  large  supply  house  in  Toronto  is  authority 
for  the  statement  that  to  date  their  sales  have  been  three 
times  in  excess  of  the  sales  over  any  similar  period  in 
previous   years.     This    is    a    splendid    start    for    19<!(j.

KEEP  CONTRACTS. 

A  FLAGRANT  instance  of  modem  business  morality, 
as  applied  to  the  literal  keeping  of  a  contract  to 
sell  goods  at  a  certain  figure,  recently  came  to  our  no- 
tice. A  certain  line  of  stationery  sold  through  the  job- 
bing trade  at  a  listed  price  was  cut  by  a  weak-kneed 
house  upon  the  insistence  of  a  slick  retailer. 

This  is  but  an  example  of  modern  complicated  busi- 
ness methods,  which  as  they  become  more  varied,  offer 
temptations  to  dealers  to  be  dishonest  without  bearing 
the  penalty.  It  is  apparent  that  if  the  present  case  be- 
came general  in  the  line  referred  to  the  manufacturer 
would  solve  the  problem  of  the  distribution  of  his  goods 
in  a  different  way.  Probably  this  would  first  lead  to  the 
elimination  of  the  jobber,  to  the  detriment  of  the  better 
class  houses,  who,  although  anxious  for  business,  abide 
by  the  letter  of  their  contract.  Jobbers  wilfully  break- 
ing prices  of  standard  lines  stand  in  vtheir  own  light.  Fur- 
thei\  the  retailer,  once  the  jobber  was  eliminated,  could 
only  deal  directly  with  the  manufacturer,  and  the  possi- 
bility of  securing  cuts  would  be  out  of  the  question.  In 
fact,  manufacturer,  jobber  and  retailer  alike  suffer  and 
nothing  can  kill  a  line  so  quickly  as  incidents  of  this 
kind. 

Warnings  respecting  honesty  are  superfluous  for  the 
ordinary  transgressions,  like  thieving,,  burglary,  etc., 
where  the  legal  penalty  is  swift  and  certain.  It  is  mod- 
ern business  morality  where  the  distinction  comes  in,  and 
it  seems,  according  to  the  many  disclosures  of  frenzied 
finance  in  America^  that  the  transgressor  is  only  wrong 
when  he  is  caught.  In  many  insidious  ways  business 
morality  is  being  sapped  by  modern  slickness.  An  exam- 
ple like  Marshall  Field,  who  accumulated  a  vast  fortune 
by  business  methods  not  only  legally  correct,  but  by 
legitimate  methods  approved  by  all  honorable,  high-mind- 
edj  right-thinking  men,  shows  that  the  golden  rule  ulti- 
mately brings  its  own  reward.

RETAIL   CO-OPERATION. 

MANUFACTURERS  have  solved  the  problem  of  the 
most  economical  distribution  of  their  wares  in  al- 
most every  case  by  the  assistance  and  co-operation  of  the 
retailer.  In  many  cases  they  have  gone  still  further  by 
an  expensive  but  judicious  education  of  the  consumer  to 
ask  for  a  certain  line  of  goods,  with  the  prime  object  in 
view  of  aiding  the  retailer  to  readily  turn  over  his  stock. 
To  secure  the  best  possible  results  from  the  efforts  of  the 
manufacturer    the   active   assistance  of   the  retailer   is   es-

sential.  In  a  certain  degree  the  retailer  is  the  king  of 
his  business  and  his  customers  depend  upon  his  say-so. 
Still  it  is  recognized  as  folly  to  push  other  than  well 
known  lines,  even  if  the  profit  on  individual  sale  is  high- 
er. Usually  advertised  lines  are  of  tested  intrinsic  merit 
and  are  disposed  of  so  quickly  that  profits  finally  are 
much  better. 

It  is  in  this  particular  that  many  firms  complain,  as 
retailers  are  not  disposed  to  keep  their  stocks  complete. 
Many  times  a  demand  is  created  that  is  not,  taken  full 
advantage  of.  Some  system  is  needed  by  every  dealer  to 
tabulate  the  inquiries  for  lines  not  stocked,  or  which  he 
has  run  out  of.  If  this  is  done  for  even  a  short  period 
the  necessity  for  constantly  replenishing  and  keeping 
stocks  complete   will  be  apparent.

A  NOBLE  LIFE. 

NOTHING  in  the  life  of  the  late  Marshall  Field  is  so 
striking  as  the  respect  which  he  was  able  to  com- 
mand even  from  his  business  rivals.  It  was  said  that  in 
all  his  long  career  he  never  brought  about  the  ruin  of  an- 
other man.  When  we  consider  that  his  wealth  was  esti- 
mated at  $150,000,000,  it  is  the  greatest  of  all  tributes 
to  say  that  in  the  making  of  it  he  wronged  no  man  and 
made  no  enemy. 

It  would  be  well  for  all  successful  business  men  if  the 
same  thing  could  be  said  about  them.  Even  material  suc- 
cess does  not  necessarily  imply  the  ruthless  crushing  of 
every  weaker  man  who  may  be  in  the  w*ay.  "There  is  no 
sentiment  in  business"  is  one  of  the  common  phrases  to 
excuse  grasping,  selfish  aggression.  We  have  seen  it  here 
in  Canada  ;  we  see  it  every  day.  Yet  the  men  who  in- 
dulge in  it  are  not  the  men  to  whom  life  is  pleasant. 
Such  men  do  not  command  the  respect  of  their  fellows  nor 
the  admiration  of  the  public.  In  the  amassing  of  their 
wealth  they   have    lost   the    human  qualities   which   alone 

make  life  worth  living.

ENCOURAGE  TOURIST  TRAVEL. 

CANADA  has  become  a  great  resort  for  tourists.  Dur- 
ing last  year  over  50,000  people  were  carried  to 
Muskoka  and  Georgian  Bay  alone  and  three-quarters  of 
these  were  Americans.  This  fact,  with  its  possibilities,  is 
of  first  importance  to  the  retail  merchants  of  the  country. 
Consider  what  it  means  in  dollars  and  cents.  We  may 
fairly  assume  that  the  expenditure  of  each  of  the  fifty 
thousand  would  be  fifty  dollars.  On  this  basis  the  amount 
spent  in  Muskoka  alone,  including  transportation,  would 
be  $2,500,000.  Every  trade  profits  directly  from  this  ; 
the  visitors  buy  extensively  of  clothing,  fur,  cutlery, 
fancy  goods,  etc.  When  this  same  thing  is  going  on  all 
over  the  country  it  will  be  at  once  seen  that  the  amount 
derived  from  this  source  is  very  great. 


Merchants  throughout  the  country  should  take  ener- 
getic steps  to  support  the  railways  in  developing  this 
tourist  business.  Few  towns  have  not  some  Summer  at- 
tractions which  they  could  make  known  to  the  public. 
Wherever  a  share  of  this  transient  business  has  not  been 
had  in  the  past,  the  retail  merchants  of  the  towns  should 
get  together  and  devise  means  of  attracting  it.  The  bene- 
fit to  be  derived  from  it  is  both  direct  and  indirect.  In 
the  first  place  tourists  are  liberal  in  their  purchases  and 
they  pay  ready  cash.  They  come,  too,  at  a  time  when 
ordinary  business  is  rather  dull  so  that  trade  from  an 
outside  source  is  all  the  more  desirable.  Indirectly  mer- 
chants reap  a  great  harvest  from  the  fact  that  this  large 
amount  of  money  is  left  in  the  country.  Somebody  is  get- 
ting it  and  every  merchant  will  benefit  eventually. 

Much  credit  is  due  to  the  Grand  Trunk,  the  Inter- 
colonial and  the  Canadian  Pacific  railways  for  their  suc- 
cess in  interesting  Americans  in  the  beauty  spots  of  Can- 
ada. They  have  brought  much  monev  into  the  country 
and  have  aided  materially  in  its  development.  Organiza- 
tion among  merchants  in  seconding  these  endeavors  should 
be  undertaken  at  once  so  that  the  coming  Summer  will 
exceed  all  previous  ones  in  the  number  of  visitors.

COMPROMISE   ON    TRAVELERS'   TAX. 

IN  partial  response  to  public  opinion  the  Government  of 
the  Province  of  Quebec  have  reduced  their  obnoxious 
tax  on  commercial  travelers  from  $300  to  $100.  Although 
this  is  a  partial  relief  it  does  not  cover  the  whole  case. 
The  objection  which  The  Bookseller  and  Stationer  has 
consistently  made  to  the  tax  is  that  the  principle  is  bad 
and  detrimental  to  business.  The  burden  is  somewhat  re- 
lieved by  lessening  the  amount,  but  the  unfairness  is  pre- 
sent just  the  same  as  before. 

When  the  tax  came  up  for  unfavorable  criticism  some 
months  ago,  the  Provincial  Treasurer  stated  that  the 
Government  needed  money  and  that  this  was  a  legitimate 
means  of  raising  it.  Whatever  may  have  been  the  revenue 
to  the  province  before,  at  its  present  figure  it  cannot 
yield  a  sum  worthy  of  consideration.  Why  not  make  the 
surrender  complete  ?  We  cannot  believe  that  the  Province 
of  Quebec  is  willing  to  bear  the  reproach  of  raising  up 
barriers  to  trade  which  have  long  been  discredited  by 
practically  the  whole  world,  nor  that  it  is  anxious  to 
arouse  the  ill  will  of  the  enterprising  countries  who  seek 
foreign   business. 

Mention  need  only  be  made  of  the  resolutions  of  the 
British  chambers  of  commerce  and  of  Canadian  bodies 
such  as  the  Dominion  Commercial  Travelers'  Association 
and  the  Canadian  Manufacturers'  Association  to  show 
that  intense  hostility  is  felt.  In  fairness  to  her  own  mer- 
chants and  to  the  merchants  of  Canada  at  large,  we  urge 
the  Government  of  the  Province  of  Quebec  to  -consider 
still  further  this  tax  and  complete  the  good  work'  which 
has  already  been  begun.

numerous  cards.  These,  to  the  number  of  416,,  they  have

They  include  actresses  in  bromochrome,  hand-colored  and 
real  photo  processes  ;  four  sets  of  child  studies  to  retail 
at  ~>s.  fid.  a  gross  ;  a  most  amusing  set  of  stock  ex-

representing    various    views    of    Egypt. 

The  Pictorial  Post  Card  Co.,  Limited,  will  be  glad  to 
send  their  catalogue  of  latest  productions  to  all  mention- 
ing Bookseller  and  Stationer,  This  is  a  pamphlet  of  some 
!••  pages,  setting  forth  in  detail  all  the  cards  published 
by  this  firm.  Amongst  others,  mention  is  made  of 
actresses  in  six  different  processes  ;  count rv  views  in 
chromo  and  photorette  of  neatly  all  the  leading  British 
towns  and  places  of  interest  ;  an  extensive  range  of  Lon-

vast  assortment  of  fancy  and  comic  cards.  This  firm  are

and   Leipsig. 

SOME  GOOD  THINGS  FROM  EUROPE. 

BY   the    courtesy     of     Frankel  &   Co.,   245  Shaftesbury 
avenue,    London,    England,    Bookseller   and   Stationer 
is  able  to  draw  the  attention  of  Canadian  post  card 
dealers    to    four    exceedinglv    high-class    productions,    such 
as   should   appeal    to   those   who  are   looking   for   cards   of 
really  artistic  merit  and  finished  workmanship. 

The  first  set,  which  is  said  to  be  the  latest  novelty 
in  this  line  of  business,  is  a  very  fine  "metallic  lustric" 
card,  for  which  Frankel  &  Co.  have  secured  the  monopoly 
for  Great  Britain  and  Canada.  It  is  printed  in  colors 
after  the  fashion  of  ordinary  chromes,  but  in  addition, 
there  are  added  two  layers  of  bronze,  which  have  a  most 
charming  effect.  These  cards  can  be  printed  from  cus- 
tomers' own  originals  and  should  be  ordered  in  lots  of 
not   less   than   5,000. 

Another  of  Frankel  &  Co.'s  productions,  which  is  al 
together  out  of  the  common,  is  a  brome  tone  card,  high- 
ly glazed,  with  gelatine  surface.  Already  36  photographs 
of  the  leading  stage  celebrities  have  been  taken,  and  more 
ate  expected  shortly.  So  perfect  is  the  workmanship  of 
these  cards  that  it  would  require  an  expert  to  detect  that 
they  are  not  real  photographs  hand  colored.-  Being,  how- 
ever, in  reality  done  by  a  patent  machinery  process,  they 
can  naturally  sell  these  at  a  comparatively  lower  price. 


A  third  group  which  deserve  notice  are  several  studies 
of  children's  rural  life  and  similar  subjects.  These  are 
very  pretty  bromide  cards  carefully  hand  colored,  the 
whole  effect  of  which  is  very  pleasant  and  artistic. 

Frankel  &  Co.  are  general  export  agents  for  some 
beautiful  hand-painted  cards  These  all  emanate  from  an 
academy  of  capable  German  artists,  and  should  appeal  to 
all  those  who  have  a  taste  for  hand-paintings.  The  range 
is  very  extensive,  and  the  workmanship  superior.  A  some- 
what similar  production  is  a  line  of  hand-painted  initial 
cards  of   unique  designs. 

Although  this  firm  produce  such  high-class  works  as 
those  just  mentioned,  it  might  be  remarked  that  they 
handle  also  the  cheaper  and  more  common  ones  in  large 
quantities.  Their  comics  are  amusing,  without  being  vul- 
gar, and  their  ordinary  chrome  cards  are  of  very  fine 
finish.  Elsewhere  will  be  found  Frankel  &  Co.'s  proposi- 
tion for  Canadian  dealers  all  over  the  Dominion.  When 
ordering  cards  or  sending  negatives  for  reproduction, 
please    mention    Bookseller   and    Stationer.

a  full  range  of  English  Easter  cards,  issued  in  connec 
tion  with  Hill's  "For  the  Empire  Series."  Last  year

The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  assure  the  trade  that  they  will 
have  a  sufficiency.

nerve  to  keep  the  market  supplied.  The  Copp,  Clark  Co. 
have  a  reliable  source  of  supply  and  will  be  able  to  fill 
all   requirements.

"KOH-I-NOOR"  Pencil  Talk

STINO     DETAILS 


Tlie  phenomenal  sale  of  "  KOH-I-NOOR  "  Pencils — an  Austrian  product — in  the  United  States  and 
Canada  within  a  few  years  of  their  introduction  has  bewildered  American  Manufacturers. 

It  hasn't  been  a  matter  of  "low-priced  foreign  labor"  either — far  from  it,  the  pencil  came  to  the  market 
at  almost  double  the  price  of  any  that  had  previously  been  sold  and  yet  those  first  judges  of  pencil  quality 
— the  Architects,  Engineers  and  Draughtsmen — adopted  it  immediately. 

The  price  in  fact  was  so  much  higher  than  other  makes — that  retail  dealers  felt  that  the  demand  would 
stop  there — the  public  had  never  been  formerly  known  to  buy  the  same  pencil  as  the  Draughtsmen  used, 
but — the  public  had  never  known  such  a  pencil,  that  was  the  reason. 

To-day  the  public  uses  it. 

Note  the  number  of  bright  yellow  polished  pencils  in  use  to-day  compared  to  some  years  ago.  They 
are  either  "  KOH-I-NOORS  "  or  imitations,  for  the  popularity  of  the  "  KOH-I-NOOR  "  has  driven  every 
manufacturer  to  the  making  af  a  yellow  imitation. 

Yellow  is  the  "  KOH-I-NOOR  "  color. 

Roughly  speaking,  these  pencils  cost  the  consumer  twice  as  much  as  what  is  called  an  "ordinary  "  lead 
pencil,  but — they  last  four  and  a  half  times  as  long  and  every  inch  of  them  is  pure  and    perfect  satisfaction. 

The  reason  why  : — 

The  lead  in  a  "  KOH-I-NOOR  "  pencil  is  compressed — intensely  condensed — and  that  secret  process  of 
manufacture  is  what  has  made  the   "  KOH-I-NOOR  "  famous.      It  outlasts  others.      It  is  smoother. 

The  best  evidence  of  this  success  is  its  number  of  imitations  ;  not  only  has  the  color  been  imitated,  but 
the  very  style  of  lettering  and  phrases  have  been  copied. 

We  have  the  only  complete  stock  of  L.    &  C.   HARDTMTJTH'S  goods  that  there  is  in  Canada.

February,   1906 


We  Have  Been  Asked  the  Question 


"  Why  do  you  claim  'Kohinoor'  Pencils 
to  be  the  Standard  Pencils  of  the  world?" 

We  will  tell  you : 

BECAUSE  of  their  splendid  quality. 
BECAUSE  every  sale  makes  a  pleased  customer. 
BECAUSE  they  never  become  "dead"  stock. 
BECAUSE  they  are  worth  their  cost  always. 
BECAUSE  they  suit  every  purpose  of  a  pencil, 

being  made  in  17  degrees. 
BECAUSE  a  dealer  can  always  suit  a  customer 

with  "  Kohinoor "   Pencils,    and  rarely 

can  with  others. 
BECAUSE  dealers  don't  have  to  carry  a  stock  of 

thousands     of     slow    selling    pencils. 

Kohinoor    Pencils  sell   quickly,  and 

without  special  effort   on  the  dealer's 

part. 
BECAUSE  it   pays   to  handle  and  be  identified 

with  such  high  class  goods. 

We  can  give  more  reasons,  if  necessary, 
and  we  believe   other   dealers   can  too.

Brothers'  big  lines.  The  covers  are  all  made  by  first-class 
pocket  book  makers  in  Brown  Bros.'  own  factory,  which 
fact  is  a  guarantee  of  good  quality.  The  "refU"  comes 
in  live  sizes,  as  shown  in  cut.  The  fillers  are  always  in 
stock  and  as  every  stationer  carries  these  books  it  is  al-

i he  country  you  may  be  in.

Bunt  in,  Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited,  have  added  some  new 
lines  to  their  assortment  of  tablets  that  are  very  attrac- 
tive. The  covers  are  right  up  to  date  and  the  paper  is  the 
same  as   that   used  in    their  most   popular   lines. 

*  *  * 

The  latest  in  board  clips  is  what  is  known  as  the 
railroad  file,  because  it  is  used  almost  entirely  in  rail- 
road offices.  In  place  of  springs  for  holding  the  papers  to 
the  board,  the  file  is  provided  with  a  screw  clamp,  which 
makes  any  slipping  of  papers  entirely  impossible.  War- 
wick Bros.   &   Rutter,   Limited,  are  handling   it.

The  illustration  of  L.  &  C.  Hardtmuth's  propelling 
pencil  is  inadequate,  as  it  of  course  fails  to  bring  out  a 
distinguishing  feature,  that  besides  a  propelling  pencil  it 
is  also  a  repelling  one.  A  simple  twist  forces  the  lead 
outwards  and  the  reverse  repels  it.  This  is  an  innova- 
tion which  has  obvious  advantages  and  is  appreciated  by 
all.  It  is  a  Koh-i-noor  and  comes  in  two  lengths,  a  lower 
vest  pocket  size  to  retail  with  a  generous  profit  at  35 
cents,  and  the  ordinary  length  to  retail  at  40c.  It  is,  to 
be  sure,  filled  with  Hardtmuth's  lead.  Copying  lead  users 
will  find  this  pencil  indispensable,  as  its  adjustment  abso- 


keeping  track  of  hours  and  wages.  It  sells  at  5  cents  re- 
tail. For  the  employer,  the  monthly  or  weekly  time 
book,  just  out,  is  very  useful.  It  is  bound  in  foolscap 
size,   limp , board  cover  and  is  cheap  at  35  cents,   which   is 

the   retail   price.

The  yellow  finish  is  quite  the  rage  just  now  in  pencils 
and  penholders.  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  show 
a  series  of  four  "all  yellow"  penholders.  No.  1  is  the 
Flexo,  an  anti-nervous,  tireless  holder,  with  flexible 
tip  of  vulcanite.  No.  2  has  a  pure  rubber  corrugated  tip. 
No.  3  has  a  solid  vulcanite  tip,  which  expels  the  pen  when 
necessary,   and   No.   4   is  a  plain  straight  tapering  holder.

The  latest  contribution  to  standard  notepapers  is 
Naples  Linen,  a  product  of  the  manufacturing  house  of 
Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited.  They  state  that  it  is 
undoubtedly  one  of  the  best  hits  they  ever  made,  it  having 
caught  on  far  better  than  they  anticipated.  Naples  Linen 
is  a  high-grade  paper,  with  a  slightly  different  finish  from

Gage  &  Co.  in  this  issue  call  special  attention  to  the 
"Swiss  Lawn"  initial  papeteries.  These  will  be  made  with 
all  the  letters  of  the  alphabet  except  Q,  U,  V,  X  and  Zi. 
This  line  of  initial  stationery,  which  the  trade  can  retail 
at  25  cents  with  a  good  profit,  is  sure  to  meet  with  a 
large  sale,  as  it  has  been  difficult  to  supply  a  full  sized 
papeterie  with  cloth  finished  paper,  embossed  with  ini- 
tials,  at   this  figure  heretofore.

Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter's  new  line  of  canvasboard 
notes  and  receipt  forms  is  complete,  comprising  twelve 
different  sizes  from  the  small  pocket  to  the  largest  office 
receipt  form.  They  have  also  just  completed  another  sup- 
ply of  full-bound  canvas  pocket  memo  books  to  retail  at 
15  cents.  These  come  in  four  sizes  and  two  rulings.  Their 
canvasboard  blotters,  which  have  not  been  procurable 
since  September,    are  also  ready   for  delivery. 

•  .  • 

The  Lemon  copying  book  is  the  name  of  Warwick  Bros. 
&  Rutter's  new  letter  book.  The  paper  is  made  in  a  light 
yellow  or  lemon  shade,  which  makes  the  copies  from  type- 
written letters  all  the  more  legible  by  contrast.  The 
books  contain  either  500  or  1,000  pages.

A  new  proposition  is  the  individual  vest  pocket  time 
book  for  workmen.     It   is  ruled  and  printed   specially   for 


ceptionally   wide   dandy   and   is  neatly   packer  a

Buntin,  Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited,  are  finding  a  ready 
sale  for  their  Diva  copying  pencil,  a  new  line  that  they 
had  made  specially  for  themselves.  Each  pencil  is  finished 
with  a  nickel  cap  and  also  a  point  protector,  making  it  a 
very  complete  article  for   5  cents.

Among  recent  stationery  importations  of  Warwick 
Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  is  Newton  Deckle  Edge  Linen. 
This  is  a  very  choice  English  product.  The  paper  is  hand- 
made linen  faced  with  deckled  edges.  Warwick  Bros.  & 
Rutter  are  also  ordering  it   in  papeterie  form. 


MORE  DENNISON  SPECIALTIES. 

ANOTHER     new    idea   lately   marketed  by    this   firm    is 
an    embossed    initial    seal    which    will    permit     every 
young  lady  to  have  such  a  luxury   without   any  at- 
tendant  paraphernalia  of   wax,   seal,   etc.     The  retail  cost 
is  infinitesimal  and   the  work  is   in   keeping  with   the  gen- 
eral excellence  of  Dennison's  lines. 

An  electric  lamp  shade  in  the  form  of  a  tulip,  made 
from  their  crepe  paper  in  a  rich  red  shade,  with  green 
leaves,  gives  an  artistic  setting  to  the  home  and  has  been 
employed  successfully  by  many  storekeepers  in  their  win- 
dow displays.  The  effect  needs  to  be  seen  to  be  appre- 
ciated. Particulars  of  any  of  these  lines  will- be  eladly 
given  upon  application  to  their  Montreal  office,  121  Coris-

Clearing  Sales   Make  Active  Trade— St.   Valentine 
Day   Sales— Gossip   in   Trade   Circles. 

Office  of  Bookseller,  and  Stationer, 

232  McGill  Street.  Montreal. 

February  10,  1906. 

P  RE-INVENTORY  sales  were  judiciously  pushed 
throughout  January,  preparatory  to  stock-taking 
day  the  end  of  the  month,  and  in  most  cases  sale 
results  proved  satisfactory.  Price-cutting  served  to  clear 
many  undesirable  lines  of  books  and  essentially  holiday 
stationery,  as  well  as  the  many  specialties  indulged  in  by 
the  book  and  stationery  stores  of  the  city.  The  continued 
mild  weather  really  promoted  trade  in  these  lines,  as 
shopping  could  be  done  without  discomfort.  After  inven- 
tory day  the  usual  procedure  of  bringing  out  lines  brought 
to  light  in  this  way,  was  indulged  in,  and  the  bargain 
giving  merrily  continued. 

*  *  * 

Preparations  for  St.  Valentine's  Day  sales  were  made 
early  and  window  displays  and  interior  table  decorations 
were  of  an  artistic  nature.  The  class  of  goods  available 
to-day  is  unusually  dainty  and  chaste,  and  judging  by  the 
crowds  around  these  tables,  the  interest  in  this  period 
shows  no  sign  of  abating.  In  fact,  the  matter  rests  en- 
tirely with  the  retailer  and  his  efforts  always  keep  up  the 
interest  in  such  events.  St.  Catherine  street  stores  re- 
ported an  active  trade,  although  the  department  stores 
seemed  to  cater  for  the  bulk  of  the  business. 


"Materialism,"  by  Craig  Ruie,  is  a  successful  pub- 
lishing venture  of  E.  M.  Renouf,  St.  Catherine  street,  and 
he  reports  sales  as  satisfactory.  In  the  realm  of  bio- 
graphy, travel  and  history,  "Lord  Randolph  Churchill" 
and  "Mrs.  Fitzherbert  and  George  IV"  have  had  a  phe- 
nomenal sale  for  this  class  of  literature.

Mr.  P.  E.  Phelan,  proprietor  of  the  well  known  St. 
Catherine  street  bookstore,  has  returned  from  an  extended 
trip  to  the  West  Indies,  by  way  of  New  York.  Mr. 
Eugene  Phelan,  his  brother,  of  the  Canada  Railway  News 
Co.,  accompanied  him.

The    Trade     in    Valentines— Some     Personal     Paragraphs- 
Trade  Generally  Good. 

Office  of  Bookseller  a»d  Stationer. 

10  Front  Street  East,  Toronto. 

February,  10.  1906. 

VALENTINES  of  all  kinds  have  been  on  sale  all  the 
past  week  and  the  valentine  counters  of  the  various 
stores  selling  these  lines  have  been  well  patronized. 
The  sale  has  not  been  confined  solely  to  the  orthodox  val- 
entine,   but  pretty   gift  books,    tied  with   ribbon,    and   ap- 
propriate pictures  have  been  in  extensive  demand. 


Toronto  has  been  very  gay  socially  of  late  and  there 
have  been  numerous  dances,  card  parties,  dinners  and 
other  functions.  Naturally  there  has  been  an  active  de- 
mand for  invitations,  cards,  programmes  and  all  the  other 
accessories. 


Every  store  is  making  a  big  bid  for  magazine  business, 
and  new  fixtures  and  ideas  are  being  installed  continually. 
The  main  idea  is  to  show  the  goods  as  prominently  as 
possible  at  the  front  of  the  store.  The  window  display  of 
The  Busy  Man's  Magazine  by  F.  E.  Phelan  created  a  great 
deal  of  comment  and  promoted  the  sale  of  this  new  ven- 
ture in  a  remarkable  degree.  The  Harmsworth  Self-Edu- 
cator has  also  secured  the  active  co-operation  of  the 
trade  and  sales  are  satisfactory.  The  book  and  stationery 
trade  is  gradually  forging  ahead  in  the  sales  of  magazines 
and  gives  the  newsdealer  much  trouble  to  keep  up  his  end. 

•  *  * 

The  social  season  is  being  catered  to  by  most  of  the 
stores,  and  playing  cards,  tally  cards  and  all  requisites 
are  displayed  in  a  wide  variety.  The  picture  post  card 
craze  is  given  new  zest  by  the  arrival  of  new  subjects  con- 
tinually and  the  end  of  innovation  never  seems  in  sight. 
Every  field  has  been  explored  to  give  life  to  a  trade  which 
shows  no  signs  of  diminishing.  The  political  series  is  now 
having  quite  a  run  and  new  comics  are  well  taken  hold  of. 

•  *  * 

Among  the  old  favorites  in  fiction  "The  House  of 
Mirth"  and  "The  Conquest  of  Canaan"  still  remain  at 
the  head  of  the  list.  "Foolish  Finance"  is  a  new  arrival 
in  smart  fiction  and  the  style  rivals  the  eloquence  of 
Thos.  W.  Lawson.  New  books  well  spoken  of  include  "On 
the  Field  of  Glory,"  "Ben  Blair,"  "Peter's  Mother"  and 
"Vivien."  The  use  of  steel  pillars  in  window  displays 
along  with  glass  shelves  gives  a  great  deal  of  space  avail- 
able in  a  small  window  and  they  have  been  taken  up  by 
rnanv  stores. 


Trade  in  general  during  January  has  been  satisfac- 
tory. There  has  been  a  steady  demand  for  books,  sta- 
tionery and  magazines.  At  the  time  of  writing  the  val- 
entine trade  is  quite  active.

Mr.  H.  Bell,  of  the  Consolidated  Stationery  Co.,  Win-

Miss  Hattie  Tweedie,  of  Moncton,  N.B.,  has  been  in 
town  during  the  week.  She  called  on  many  of  her  old 
friends.  Miss  Tweedie  is  very  fond  of  Toronto  and  comes 
west  at.  least  twice  a  year.  No  one  gets  a  heartier  wel- 
come here.

William  Tyrrell  &  Co.  had  a  window  full  of  The  Busy

OLDEST    RAILWAY  NEWS   AGENT 
IN   AMERICA. 

TRAVELING  backwards  and  forwards  on  the  Port 
Dover  branch  of  the  Grand  Trunk  Railway  is  a 
"newsy"  who,  if  he  lives  until  the  27th  day  of 
.March  next,  will  have  reached  the  allotted  three  score 
years  and  ten.  If  this  does  not  give  him  the  title  to  be- 
ing the  oldest  railroad  news  agent  in  America  many  peo- 
ple will  be  much  mistaken. 

This  veteran  agent  is  Mr.  E.  W.  Hyde,  a  native  of 
Hamilton,  and  still  a  resident  of  the  Ambitious  City. 
His  father  was  a  lawyer  in  London,  England,  who, 
owing  to  continued  ill-health,  came  to  Canada  and 
settled  on  a  farm  in  the  county  of  Wentworth,  near 
Hamilton.  He  worked  the  farm  and  also  taught  the 
youth  of  the  section  in  the   "Slabtown"   school. 

Mr.   Hyde,   when  a  boy,  lived  for  a  number  of  years 


with  his  aunt  in  Hamilton,  and  what  education  he  re- 
ceived was  obtained  in  the  public  schools  of  that  city. 
He  entered  upon  the  business  of  news  agent  in  the  Buffalo 
&  Goderich  branch  of  the  Grand  Trunk  Railway,  in  1861, 
and  worked  on  the  trains  running  between  Goderich  and 
Buffalo  for  over  thirteen  years. 

When  the  Hamilton  &  North  Western  Railway  was 
opened  he  took  charge  of  the  news  business  on  that  line, 
and  was  so  engaged  for  a  number  of  years.  Later,  when 
the  management  of  that  line  changed  hands,  Mr.  Hyde 
retired  from'  the  service,  and  for  several  years  conducted 
a  business  of  his  own  in  Hamilton.  Afterwards,  when 
the  Canadian  News  Company  assumed  the  management 
of  the  news  business  on  the  Hamilton  &  North  Western 
Railway,  he  gave  up  his  own  business  and  entered  the 
employment  of  the  C.N.C.,  and  has  been  in  their  service 
ever  since.  His  route  is  between  Hamilton  and  Port 
Dover. 

Mr.  Hyde  has  been  twice  married,  and  is  the  father 


of  10  children,  of  whom  7  are  living.  He  is  of  a  very 
quiet,  unobtrusive  but  genial  character,  much  beloved  by 
his  intimate  friends  and  respected  by  all  who  know  him 
as  an  honest,  upright  man.  This  is  evidenced  by  the  fact 
that  he  has  been  made  the  recipient  of  favors  from  the 
traveling  public  at  Christmas  time  for  several  years 
now.  His  many  friends  hope  that  he  may  for  many 
years  yet  be  spared  to  grace  the  decks  of  the  Port 
Dover  trains  with  his  genial  smile  and  manner. 

(The  editor  is  indebted  to  Conductor  J.  (!.  Gibson, 
of  the  Grand  Trunk,  for  this  interesting  sketch.  Mr. 
Gibson  has  known  Mr.  Hyde  for  30  years,  and  during  the 
past  seven  years  Mr.  Hyde  has  been  news  agent  on  his 
train.) 


A  FORETASTE. 

JUST  to  be  able  to  keep  the  trade  posted  on  the  mo- 
mentous subject  of  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter's  Spring 
opening  of  import  samples,  a  representative  of 
Bookseller  and  Stationer  found  his  way  out  to  the  big 
King  street  warehouse  of  the  company  the  other  day, 
and  made  some  enquiries.  Members  of  the  firm  very 
courteously  accompanied  him  to  the  top  floor,  where  he 
found  that  the  first  shipments  of  samples  had  been  re- 
ceived. Workmen  were  already  getting  the  fixtures  and 
display  stands  into  place  and  stowing  away  the  samples. 
In  about  four  weeks,  he  was  assured,  everything  would 
be  in  readiness  to  receive  the  numerous  patrons  of  the 
company. 

From  the  glimpses  the  Bookseller  man  was  vouch- 
safed of  the  early  arrivals,  he  came  to  the  conclusion 
that  the  1906  samples  were  going  to  be  hard  to  beat. 
There  was  some  Pompeian  ware  that  will  tickle  the 
fancy  of  the  connoisseur,  and  a  few  pieces  of  Grecian 
pottery  were  as  delicately  molded  and  tinted  as  any- 
thing- he  ever  saw.  A  great  variety  of  smokers'  sup- 
plies had  just  come  in,  which  gave  promise  of  being  ex- 
tremely popular.  But  so  early  in  the  game  it  would 
never  do  to  tell  all  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter's  secrets. 
Let  the  trade  restrain  their  impatience  until  March. 


NOVELTY  POST  CARD  RACK. 

SOMETHING  entirely  new  in  a  post  card  rack  is  be- 
ing introduced  by  the  Great  Western  Fixture 
Works,  195-199  Fifth  avenue,  Chicago.  The  rack 
consists  of  a  series  of  units,  a  form  of  small  case  with 
open  front,  standard  size,  each  with  a  capacity  of  30 
cards.  Each  unit  or  case  has  a  small  arm  or  hanger 
which  can  be  extended  and  fastened  to  the  case  above 
or  hung  over  a  rod.  This  arm  is  attached  to  the  case 
in  a  way  that  permits  it  being  turned  in  to  make  an 
easel  rest  for  the  case  for  showcase  displays. 

Many  arrangements  may  be  had.  They  can  be  set  up 
in  rows  on  the  showcase,  hung  in  lines  from  a  rod,  or 
attached  to  other  cases  to  make  a  hanging  rack  of  any 
length.  Some  are  furnished  to  hold  the  cards  in  hori- 
zontal, others  to  hold  them  in  upright  positions. 

The  material  is  gun-metal — strong  and  durable.  The 
units  are  sold  by  the  hundred,  in  which  quantity  they 
can  be  put  in  the  retailer's  hands  for  $5. 

The  Great  Western  Fixture  Works  also  make  several 
other   devices   for   showing  goods   that    merit    the    atlen 
tion  of  dealers. 


Mr.  A.  E.  Yandervoort,  who  has  represented  for  some 
time  past  Brown  Bros.,  Limited,  wholesale  stationers,  haa 
resigned  his  position  with  that  company  and  joined  the 
selling  force  of  the  National  Typewriter  Co.,  Limited, 
who  represent  the  Smith  Premier  typewriter  for  Ontario.

TWO  NEW  BOOK  TRAVELERS. 

Two  new  faces  will  be  seen  by  the  trade  among  the 
men  of  the  road  this  Spring.  They  are  the  new  book 
travelers  to  be  sent  out  shortly  by  The  Copp,  Clark  Co., 
Limited— Messrs.     Harold     Copp   and   John   Henry.      Both 


have  had  a  considerable  experience  with  the  firm  at  head- 
quarters and  they  are  familiar  with  the  inside  of  the  book 
trade  from  the  ground  up. 

Mr.  Harold  Copp  has  been  with  the  company  for  nine 
years  in  various  capacities.  For  the  past  year  or  more 
he  has  been  city  traveler  in  Toronto  and  has  been  highly 
successful  in  pushing  the  sale  of  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.'s 
books.  He  will  still  cover  the  Toronto  trade  but  will 
also  add  Eastern  Canada  to  his  route. 

Mr.  John  Henry  has  been  with  the  company  for  nearly 
six  years,  during  the  greater  part  of  which  time  he  has 
been  in  charge  of  the  import  book  department.  He  will 
take  the  western  trip  for  the  firm. 

The  enthusiasm  with  which  these  young  men  are  en- 
tering upon  their  enlarged  duties  speaks  well  for  the  suc- 
cess of  their  efforts. 


NEW  BRITISH  M.P.'s.

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


A.  O.  Hunt  recently  returned  to  Toronto  from  a  trip 
to  New  York,  where  he  made  arrangements  by  which 
Cupples  &  Leon,  101  Fifth  avenue,  will  take  over  the 
United  States  agency  for  the  Goodall  lines,  with  the  ex- 
ception of  a  few  of  the  larger  cities. 

An  exhibit  in  the  window  of  the  Victoria  Book  & 
Stationery  Company,  Victoria,  B.C.,  which  attracted 
much  attention  recently,  especially  :  from  the  ladies,  was 
a  magnificent  silk-embroidered  court  gown,  just  about 
large  enough  for  a  big  doll,  which  was  nevertheless  worn 
by  a  very  much  alive  little  woman,  Mrs.  Tom  Thumb,  on 
the  memorable  occasion  when  she  was  presented  to  her 
late  majesty,  Queen  Victoria. 

The  book  and  stationery  business  formerly  carried  on 
by  0.  B.  Ormond  at  94  Government  street,  Victoria,  B. 
('.,  has  been  taken  over  by  a  new  company,  to  be  known 
as  the  Standard  Stationery  Co.  This  company  will  con- 
tinue the  business  in  the  same  premises,  carrying  a  com- 
plete line  of  stationery,  novelties  and  office  supplies.  The 
management  will  be  in  the  hands  of  James  and  Alt'.  S. 
Huxtable,  the  latter  of  whom  was  for  years  in  the  em- 
ploy of  Waitt  &  Co.,  while  the  former  has  for  the  past 
ten  years  been  an  efficient  member  of  the  staff  of  the 
Victoria  Book   &   Stationery   Co. 

The  American  branch,  of  L.  &  C.  Hardtmuth,  Irving 
P.  Favor,  manager,  which  recently  moved  from  Barclay 
street,  New  York,  is  now  thoroughly  established  in  its 
new  quarters  at  34  East  Twenty-third  street.  The  change 
is  an  advantageous  one  in  every  respect.  The  location  is 
easily  accessible  from  all  parts  of  the  city,  being  within 
a  few  steps  of  the  subway  entrance,  and  the  offices,  which 
occupy  half  of  an  entire  lot  on  the  fifth  floor,  are  bright 
and  pleasant,  being  directly  opposite  the  fine  new  Metro- 
politan Life  Building  and  looking  into  Madison  Square. 
The  offices  are  reached  by  a  swiftly-moving  passenger  ele 
vator,  which  in  itself  will  strike  most  folk  as  a  big-  im- 
provement over  the  old  quarters  on  Barclay  street.  The 
interior  of  the  offices  have  been  arranged  after  Mr. 
Favor\s  own  plans  and  consist  of  a  main  or  outer  office, 
a  private  office  and  sample  room.  The  furniture,  parti- 
tions, etc.,  are  of  quartered  oak  and  the  general  decora- 
tions are  all  in  good  taste  and  in  keeping  with  the  hijeh- 
class  character  of  th'e  "Koh-i-noor"  goods.

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


February,  1806 


PERSONAL  PARAGRAPHS. 

Mr.  R.  J.  Soden,  the  Peterborough  bookseller,  was 
noticed  in  Toronto  recently. 

Mr.  S.  A.  Flatt;  of  Flatt  .&>  MacKenzie,  Fort  William, 
called  on  the  trade  in  Toronto  recently. 

Mr.  John  H.  Thompson  has  been  promoted  to  be  city 
traveler  for  the  Brown  Brothers,  Limited,   Toronto. 

Mr.  Charles  M.  Rogers,  who  has  been  on  the  road  for 
Morang  &'  Co.,  Limited,  is  out  this  Spring  for  the  Mac- 
millan   Company   of   Canada,   Limited. 

Mr.  John  L.  Swain,  who  has  been  with  Warwick  Bros. 
&  Rutter,  Limited,  for  the  past  eleven  years,  is  now  on 
the  traveling  staff  of  the  Kelk,  Sutclifie  Co.  He  will 
cover  the  eastern  ground.  Mr.  Swain  started  as  a  boy 
with  the  old  house  of  W.  H.  Bleasdell  &  Co.,  and  knows 
the  fancy  goods  trade  thoroughly. 

Mr.  Leslie  C.  Stark,  representing  Jacobsen,  Welch  & 
Co.,  Hyde,  England,  called  upon  the  wholesale  stationery 
trade  in  Montreal  and  Toronto  last  month,  with  an  ex- 
tensive line  of  papeteries.  Mr.  Stark  speaks  enthusiastic- 
ally about  the  prosperous  conditions  in  Canada.  Mr.  H. 
L.  Lyman,  Montreal,  the  Canadian  agent  for  this  firm, 
accompanied  Mr.  Stark  to  Toronto. 

Mr.  John  Morgan,  late  manager  and  buyer  of  the  sta- 


tionery and  fancy  goods  department  of  Henry  Morgan  & 
Co.,  Montreal,  will,  as  announced  in  a  previous  issue  of 
Bookseller  and  Stationer,  be  the  Canadian  sales  manager 
of  the  firm  of  Raphael  Tuck  &  Son,  Limited.  Mr.  Morgan 
leaves  this  month  to  spend  some  time  in  their  New  York 
house  and  expects  to  return  to  Montreal  the  beginning  of 
April,  when  as  soon  as  suitable  premises  can  be  prepared 
a  warehouse  and  office  will  be  opened. 

Mr.  J.  M.  Young,  who  has  for  a  number  of  years  re- 
presented The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  in  the  western  provinces, 
working  from  Port  Arthur  to  the  coast,  has  resigned 
from  the  road  to  take  charge  of  the  manufacturing  de- 
partment of  the  concern.  Mr.  Young's  knowledge  of  the 
needs  of  the  largest  buyers  in  the  west  particularly  quali- 
fies him  for  the  branch  of  the  work  he  is  undertaking.  Mr. 
Young's  territory  will  be  divided  between  Mr.  R.  J. 
Plaskett  and  Mr.  T.  F.  Townley,  both  of  whom  have  been 
with  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  for  a  number  of  years.  Mr. 
Young  hopes  to  take  an  occasional  trip  to  the  west,  but 
at  present  his  energies  will  be  devoted  entirely  to  his 
duties   in   Toronto. 

Mr.  W.  0.  Husten  is  the  new  Canadian  manager  of 
the  Dennison  Manufacturing  Co.,  succeeding  Mr.  H. 
VanDuyne,  who  has  returned  with  the  good  wishes  of  a 
large  number  of  friends  to  the  New  York  office  of  the 
firm.  Mr.  Husten,  who  has  been  with  Dennison's  for  over 
thirteen  years,  comes  direct  from  the  New  York  office, 
equipped  with  a  wide  experience  and  the  requisite  energy, 
judgment  and  executive  ability  to  adequately  fill  the  mani- 
fold wants  of  his  new  duties.  An  addition  is  made  to  the 
staff  in  the  person  of  Mr.  William  E.  P.  Howell,  who  also 
came  direct  from  the  New  York  office.  Mr.  A.  M.  Clark, 
for  a  long  period  well  known  to  the  Canadian  trade,  will 
call  upon  his  usual  territory.  The  Canadian  headquarters 
of  the  firm  remain  at  121  Coristine  building,  Montreal, 
and  they  will  •  cover  the  trade  from  Windsor  to  the  At- 
lantic ocean. 


NEW  GERMAN  DESIGNS. 

FROM  Gustav  Ferd.  Schacht  &  Co.,  Leipzig,  comes  a 
package  of  new  and  novel  post  cards  that  are  en- 
tirely different  from  anything  yet  put  upon  the 
Canadian  market.  Each  card  shows  that  close  atten- 
tion to  detail  that  characterizes  the  German  card.  The 
card  is  a  complete  work  of  art  in  itself,  and  is  not 
thought  of  as  being  identical  with  thousands  of  other 
cards. 

First  comes  a  series  of  fifteen  sun  and  moonshine 
pictures.  These  are  beautifully  colored  natural  scenes, 
woodland,  seashore,  riverstde,  Winter,  villages,  etc.  In 
each  an  embossed  representation  of  the  sun,  moon  or 
stars  gives  a  highly  realistic  effect. 

The  "Brilliant"  series  have  a  glittering  appearance 
that  is  in  keeping  with  the  scenes  pictured.  Sunset 
scenes  in  the  mountains,  south  polar  scenes,  woodland 
scenes  in  the  evening  give  scope  for  a  glorious  mingling 
of  colors.  A  set  of  butterflies  and  two  or  three  pictures 
of  angels  are  included  in  this  series. 

The  "Angels  of  Religion"  cards  are  handsomely  em- 
bossed and  richly  colored  pictures  of  angels,  including 
one  or  two  pictures  of  Christ.  Some  of  the  cards  are 
white  and  some  are  of  brilliant  hue. 

The   series   reproducing   great   paintings   numbers   ten 


cards.  These,  too,  are  handsomely  embossed  around  the 
edges  and  the  coloring  is  very  fine.  Some  of  the  dresses 
of  the  figures  painted  are  heavily  embossed  in  gold,  giv- 
ing a  rich  appearance. 

Nature  and  art  cards  to  the  number  of  three  are 
hand-painted  pictures  of  chickens,  grouse  and  partridges, 
very  realistic  in  their  setting. 


COMIC   FACE  LANTERNS. 

IN  the  accompanying  illustration  is  shown  a  half-dozen 
of  the  new  comic  face  designs  in  Japanese  lanterns, 
furnished  the  trade  bv  the  American  News  Company, 
39-41  Chambers  street,  New  York.  These  lanterns  are 
both  attractive  and  striking  and  are  something  out  of  the 
ordinary.  They  also  have  American  flag  designs  in  great 
varietv.

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


WALL      PAPER 

SELLING  for  Spring  is  complete  and  the  mildness  of 
the  season  has  been  such  as  to  induce  several  mer- 
chants to  ask  for  deliveries  at  once.  It's  an  ill 
wind  that  blows  nobody  good.  The  Spring-like  weather 
during  a  greater  part  of  December  and  January,  while  it 
retarded  the  sales  of  heavy  goods  in  clothing  and  woolen 
goods,  has  been  propitious  for  the  wall  paper  trade. 

Manufacturers  of  wall  paper  in  Canada  are  unanimous 
in  their  satisfaction  over  the  business  just  completed.  Re- 
tailers bought  even  better  than  was  anticipated.  The 
wave  of  prosperity,  it  is  felt,  will  make  itself  evident  to 
a  great  extent  in  the  luxuries  of  life,  housefurnishings. 
This  department  is  the  first  to  feel  the  benefit  of  pros- 
perous times,  just  as  it  is  the  first  to  suffer  in  times  of 
adversity. 

The  present  open  Winter,  with  every  prospect  of  an 
early  break-up  in  the  Spring,  will  stimulate  business  in 
house  decorations.  House  building  is  being  carried  on  un- 
interruptedly and  every  one  has  to  be  papered.  Not  for 
many  years  has  the  future  looked  so  bright 


STAUNTONS'  ENLARGED  PLANT. 

GROUND  was  broken  in  December  for  the  foundations 
for  a  large  addition  to  the  already  big  wall  paper 
manufacturing  plant  of  Stauntons  Limited,  on 
Yonge  street,  Toronto.  For  the  past  two  or  three  years 
a  steadily  growing  business  has  made  increased  accommo- 
dation necessary.  The  new  building  will  cover  a  space  of 
350  by  60  feet,  with  frontages  on  both  Yonge  and  Mc- 
Murrich  streets.  The  new  structure  will  be  erected  on  the 
property  to  the  south  of  the  present  factory,  forming  an 
entirely  separate  building,  which  will  be  used  exclusively 
for  manufacturing  purposes. 

The  construction  will  be  of  the  most  improved  fire- 
proof type,  the  walls  being  of  brick,  and  the  floors,  roof 
and  supporting  columns  of  reinforced  concrete.  Fire-proof 
windows  with  metal  frames  and  wired  glass  will  be  used 
throughout.  Even  the  racks  or  runways,  on  which  the 
paper  when  printed  is  hung  to  dry,  will  be  of  metal,  so 
that  there  will  be  practically  nothing  combustible  in  the 
whole  structure. 

When  the  building  is  complete  the  most  modern  ma- 
chinery and  processes  will  be  installed  throughout,  and 
the  arrangements  will  be  such  as  to  insure  the  very 
greatest  economy  of  time  in  turning  out  the  product  of 
this  large  establishment.  Nothing  that  will  tend  to  im- 
prove the  quality  of  the  goods  and  to  reduce  the  cost  of 
manufacture  will  be  omitted.  Before  the  plans  were  pre- 
pared the  important  wall  paper  mills  in  the  United  States 
and  in  Europe  were  personally  visited,  and  points  of 
superiority  in  them  all  have  been  made  use  of  to  supple- 
ment the  advanced  ideas  of  the  management. 

The  present  buildings  will  be  used  almost  entirely  as 
warehouse,  offices  and  salesrooms,  and  will  give  the  com- 
pany most  needed  additional  accommodation  for  the  stor- 
age of  their  goods. 

The  business  now  being  operated  in  the  name  of  Staun- 
tons Limited  has  been  under  the  management  of  the 
Staunton  family  for  fifty  years,  the  third  generation  now 
being  in  personal  charge  of  its  affairs.  Probably  no  other 
reason  contributes  so  much  to  the  excellence  of  the  goods 
manufactured  by  the  company  as  the  close  personal  super- 
vision to  details  given  by  the  present  managers.  It  is 
worthy  of  mention  that  this  enlargement  is  the  fourth  ex- 
tension that  has  been  made  within  the  last  ten  years.  It 
is  expected  that  all  the  improvements  will  be  complete 
and  the  machinery  in  operation  by  July  1.

THE   POWER   OF   THE   SMALL  AD. 

Specially  written  by  W.  L,  Martin. 

WITHIN  the  Canadian  business  man's  reach  there 
are  more  than  five  millions  of  people.  He  is  on 
the  straight  road  to  fortune  if  he  can  do  two 
things  :  First,  have  the  goods;  second,  get  the  fact  into 
the  people's  heads.  Having  the  goods  is  easy,  but  get- 
ting the  fact  into  the  people's  heads  is  a  different  pro- 
position. It's  far  harder,  first  because  most  people  are 
hard-headed,  and  secondly  because  it's  hard  to  get  at 
'em  anyhow. 

The  problem  is,  how  to  do  it. 

There  are  various  ways  of  going  about  it. 

First,  you  can  tell  your  friends  that  you  have  the 
goods.      That's  doing  it  in  a  small  way. 

Or  you  can  stick  some  of  the  goods  in  your  window 
and  with  thern,  a  sign  card.  That's  doing  it  on  a  little 
bigger  scale. 

Or  you  can  pay  a  boy  to  distribute  dodgers  at  your 
door  to  people  who  go  by.     That's  going  one  better. 

Or  you  can  send  out  letters.  Or,  finally,  you  can  buy 
some  space  in  the  newspapers  and  tell  the  readers. 
That's  best  of  all. 

Each  of  the  plans  mentioned,  however,  belongs  under 
the  same  head.  They  are  all  Advertising.  Merely  a 
difference   in  degree. 

Most  business  men  prefer  the  medium  of  the  news- 
paper. 

Why? 

Because  it  takes  his  story  to  the  greatest  number 
of  people.  It  does  this  with  the  smallest  amount  of 
effort  on  the  part  of  the  man  behind  the  goods.  He 
merely  writes  the  ad,  or  hires  somebody,-  else  to  write  it 
for  him,  and  pays  the  Newspaper's  bill  for  space  when 
it's  'due.  The  newspaper  attends  to  circulating  his  ad. 
It  tells  its  subscribers  what  that  particular,  merchant 
has  to  sell  every  time  it  comes  out. 

Consider  the    Small  Dealer. 

In  these  days  of  department  stores  and  "Limiteds" 
and  full  page  ads,  the  small  dealer  is  apt  to  feel  a  good 
deal  smaller  than  he  is.  The  impressiveness  of  the  big 
black  headlines  overpowers  him.  He  gazes  at  the  sweeps 
and  dashes  of  the  big  ad-artist  with  bulging  eyes.  "Just 
see  me  !"  cries  the  Big  Fellow,  "how  I  bestride  the  com- 
mercial world  like  a  Colossi-octopus  !  The  Terror  of  the 
Twentieth  Century  !     I  am  IT  ! " 

The  little  fellow  stares  in  blank  astonishment.  He's 
only  a  drop  in  the  bucket.  What's  the  good  of  HIS  little 
ad — His  little  inch-and-a-hall'  ?  Why,  'twould  never  be 
seen  !  Throwing  his  money  away  !  Putting  in  wee  ads 
in  short  pants  for  ;the  Big  Fellow  to  mock  at  1 

Are  you,  Mr.  Merchant,  one  of  those  little  fellows  ? 
Do  you  ever  find  yourself  thinking  in  little  circles  like 
that  ?  Do  you  allow  yourself  to  be  overwhelmed  by 
mere  Size  ?— by  Big  Type  ?— by  Sweeping  Assertions  and 
Broad  Claims?  If  you  do  you  are  making  a  mistake. 
You  are  allowing  yourself  to  We  .deceived. 

■You  are  thinking  in  the  wrong  channel,  a  channel 
that     narrows     as     you  go   along.      Get  out  of  the  rut. 


Shake  yourself — freshen  up  your  ideas.  If  you  are  one 
of  those  unhappy  "always  scared  to  death"  men  when 
you  look  at  the  handiwork  of  the  Big  advertiser,  don't 
think  of  the  Big  man  at  all.  We  know  he  is  Big.  We 
know  he  is  Successful  and  "does  things."  We  know  he 
is  a  .power  to  reckon'  with.  But  we  needn't  let  him 
worry  us.  Let  us  think  a  bit  of  some  of  the  Little  men 
we  know  of.     Don't  some  of  them   "do   things"  too  ? 

The  question  before  us  is  the  power  of  the  small  bus- 
iness with  the  small  ad.  What  can  advertising  do  for 
the  small  man  who  has  much  bigger  houses  to  compete 
with  ?  How  is  he  to  advertise  effectively  in  a  Email 
way  ?  These  are  questions  not  easy  to  answer,  but  in 
these  days  of  almost  universal  advertising  it's  up  to 
every  man  to  answer  them  in  the  best  way  possible,  and 
act  up  to  the  answer,  fori  advertise  he  must. 

Persistency  the  Key  Note. 

In  advertising  there  can  be  no  set  rule — except  Per- 
sistency, with  a  great  big  P.  General  advice  and  general 
plans  are  very  nearly  useless.  First  of  all  we  must  re- 
alize that  We  have  to  fight  a  hard  fight  on  a  business 
battlefield,  where  the  contestants  give  no  quarter.  The 
idea  is  for  everybody  to  take  all  the  quarters  he  can  get, 
by  hook  or  by  crook,  and  sometimes  by  crookedness.  The 
lines  on  which  the  smaller  advertiser  can  successfully 
fight  the  battle  with  more  formidable  rivals  must  vary- 
according  to  the  field  of  conflict  and  the  conditions  under 
which  the  strife  is  waged. 

The  Big  advertiser  is  very  much  of  a  Reality.  To 
the  small  man  who  is  easily  discouraged  his  armor 
doubtless  looks  like  a  wall  of  adamant.  But  the  small 
man  has  no  need  to  be  discouraged.  To  paraphrase  an 
old  legend  and  bring  it  up  to  date,  the  faint  heart  "don't 
get  there."  As  I  said  before,  the  small  man  is  apt  to 
feel  smaller  than  he  really  is.  And  he's  apt  to  think  the 
Big  man  is  bigger  and  more  impregnable  than  HE  is. 
"Tell  me  what  you  think  and  I  will  tell  you  how  big 
you  are" — whether  you  feel  able  to  hold  your  own  against 
all  odds,  or  like  two  cents  in  the  Bank  of  Montreal. 

We  are  all  to  quite  a  large  extent  very  much  crea- 
tures of  our  own  thoughts.  Those  words  will  stand 
careful  thinking  about.  If  you  "think"  in  small  circles 
you'll  "act"  in  small  circles,  and  there's  not  much 
chance  of  your  working  in  bigger  ones. 

If  you  want  to  fight  with  the  Big  advertiser  for  your 
share  of  trade,  look  for  the  weak  spots  in  the  Big  fel- 
low's armor.     Then  keep  jabbing  there. 

Maybe  the  Big  advertiser  in  your  line  of  business  lives 
and  thrives  on  a  bargain-giving  basis — he  generally  does. 
His  flood  of  "bargains"  never  seems  to  cease.  Each  day 
brings  its  list  of  attractions,  counted  on  to  draw  people 
in  and  lead  them  to  buy  other  things  in  regular  lines 
which  show  a  large  per  cent,  of  profit.  His  bargains  are 
his  bait  ;  they  are  his  most  powerful  way  of  advertis- 
ing.- Take  that  power  from  him  and  he'd  be  as  helpless 
as  a  great  big  whale  flopping  about  out  of  the  water. 
He'd  be  out  of  it  for  certain.  His  full-page  ads  would 
be  like  soup  with  the  salt  left  out.  His  two-inch  black 
type  would   "tell   of"   a  great   deal,   but     they   wouldn't

"tell   for"   much.    His   one-hundred-dozen   lots    would     lie 
upon  his  hands.    He'd  he  IT  no  longer. 

The  small  man  cannot  hope  to  meet  on  his  own 
ground  the  advertiser  who  thrives  on  bargains  and  cut 
prices.  The  Big  fellow  can  outdo  him  in  bigness  and 
splurge  and  space.  To  attempt  to  copy  those  tactics  in 
small  space  would  be  out  of  the  question. 

Talk  Quality  and  Merit. 

How  then  can  the  small  ad  be  made  to  shine  ?  It 
can't  be  done  by  talking  Price.  It  can't  be  done  by  talk- 
ing Quantity.  But  it  can  be  done  by  talking  Quality. 
It  can  be  done  by  talking  Satisfaction.  It  can  be  done 
by  talking  Good  Service.  It  can  be  done  by  talking  Ex- 
cellence of  Merchandise — up-to-dateness  of, Style.  The  Big 
fellow  preaches  Price  and  Quantity.  He  can  be  check- 
mated by  preaching  Quality  and  Merit,  and  by  everlast- 
ingly hammering  at  it  in  strong,  clear  notes.  When  the 
small  advertiser  has  a  point  to  make  let  him  make  it 
with  no  uncertain  distinctness.  Let  him  leave  no  room 
for  doubt  in   the  mind   of  the  prospective   purchaser. 

Here  is  where  the  small  advertiser  can  make  his  small 
ad  shine  and  scintillate  and  twinkle.  He  can  give  his  lit- 
tle ad  a  lustre  that  would  turn  the  Big  ad  green  w'th 
envy.  His  little  ad  can  be  set  up  in  a  neat,  clean-cut, 
distinct  style,  with  his  firm  name  plain  and  bold,  and  it 
can  be  kept  always  in  the  same  garb.  The  reader  will 
recognize  it  at  a  glance.  He  will  know  that  Jones'  ad 
always  has  something  fresh  and  interesting  and'  pointed 
to  say,  and  he'll  read  it  as  sure  as  a  gun. 

The  Big  ad  must  divide  its  fire.  It  has  forty  songs 
to  sing  at  each  appearance — all  different. 

Now  the  small  ad  can  focus  its  fire  on  just  a  few 
vital  points  and  keep  pounding.  It  can  sing  at  each  ap- 
pearance just  one  simple  song,  and  if  it's  sung  well  it 
will  "stick."  Eternal  harping  on  one  or  two  strings 
may  not  be  picturesque  to  the  harpist,  but  where  it  is 
done  with  skill  and  power,  with  repetition  of  subject  but 
with  change  of  word  and  form,  it  will  in  time  make  an 
indelible  impression  on   the  public  mind. 

Bargains  Gain  Credence. 

The  advertiser  who  harps  on  Quality  and  Merit  and 
Exclusiveness,  if  he  happens  to  have  an  occasional  bar- 
gain to  offer  will  tell  it  to  wide  open  ears.  The  public 
will  flock  to  his  store,  because  they  know  that  they'll 
surely  GET  a  bargain.  They  know  that  Jones  is  cele- 
brated above  all  things  for  Quality  and  Merit  and  Relia- 
bility. The  advertiser,  therefore,  who  builds  his  business 
on  the  solid  rock  of  Dependability  and  Trustworthiness 
builds  better  than  he  knows,  and  it  will  pay  him  a  thous- 
and fold  to  Advertise.  In  proportion  to  the  Big  full-page 
advertiser  he  will  cast  no  mean  shadow— a  shadow  that 
won't  "grow  less"  as  it  grows  older. 

The  small  man's  business  has  its  own  Points  of  Ex- 
cellence in  which  it  need  play  second  fiddle  to  nobody, 
not  even  the  Biggest  houses.  If  it  hasn't  it's  a  pretty 
washy  affair.  These  Points  of  Excellence  should  be  taken 
up  one  by  one  and  laid  before  the  reader.  They  might  be 
worked  into  the  small  advertising  space  under  the  general 
heading,  "Jones'  Points  of  Excellence."  In  each  change 
of  copy  one  point  only  should  be'dealt  with,  and  the  most 
should  be  made  of  it.  Careful  thought  will  be  called  for 
in  framing  each  ad.  Even  a  trained  hand  can't  do  a 
small  ad  of  this  sort  justice  by  "dashing  it  off  in  a  min- 
ute." It  is  harder  to  say  a  whole  lot  in  a  few  words 
and  make  a  clear  impression  on  the  reader's  mind  than 
it  is  to  say  it  in  unlimited  space.  But  once  a  point  is 
made  and  made  clearly  in  a  few  expressive  words  it  will 
"stick"  in  the  reader's  mind  far  better  than  a  long-wind- 
ed argument. 


Whatever  you  may  have  to  say,  don't  say  it  in  an 
apologetic,  half-hearted  way.  Say  it  earnestly,  simply 
and  plainly.  It  will  sink  into  the  reader's  mind  and 
carry  with  it  conviction.  If  your  little  ad  has  in  it  the 
proper  brand  of  yeast  it  will  eventually  raise  the  reader's 
curiosity,  and  presently  he'll  be  irresistibly  tempted  to 
give  you  a  trial. 

Once  you  have  him  hooked  it's  up  to  you  to  land 
him.  And  once  you  have  him  landed — well,  that's  a  story 
of  so  many  aspects  that  we'll  have  to  deal  with  it  later 
on. 

MAMMOTH   ADVERTISERS. 

The  L.  E.  Waterman  Company,  who  use  the  pages  of 
Bookseller  and  Stationer  extensively,  are  said  to  be  regu- 
lar advertisers  in  160  trade,  technical  and  other  special- 
ized publications,  in  addition  to  their  advertising  in  street 
cars  and  by  means  of  posters;  etc. 


SPOKEN  LETTER  BY  MAIL. 

"  La  Nature." 

THE  phonopostal  is  an  apparatus  which  registers  and 
afterward  reproduces  the  human  voice,  by  means 
of  a  sheet  of  pasteboard,  shaped  like  a  post  card. 
Jules  Verne  conceived  the  idea  of  replacing  the  old  wax 
cylinder  used  in  other  phonographs  by  a  sheet  of  paper. 
which  could  be  posted  like  a  letter. 

The  advantages  of  the  phonopostals  are  numerous. 
The  records  are  made  by  an  ordinary  phonograph  of  the 
simplest  possible  type  simply  by  means  of  a  stylus  pro- 
vided with  a  sapphire  point.  This  point  presses  on  an 
impressionable  substance,  called  "sonorine,"  spread  on 
the  surface  of  the  card.  The  merit  of  the  invention  con- 
sists in  the  discovery  of  a  substance  which  can  be  easily 
spread  on  a  sheet  of  cardboard,  and  possesses  all  the 
advantages  of  the   wax-coated  cylinders. 

Sonorin'e  is  able  to,  stand  the  strain  of  transmission 
by  mail.  The  sounds  are  inscribed  in  a  spiral,  which 
commences  at  the  outside  edge  of  the  card  and  continues 
in  an  ever-narrowing  curve  until  it  forms  a  small 
circle  hardly  the  diameter  of  a  small  coin.  The 
record  is  so  deeply  engraved  in  the  coated  cardboard 
that  not  more  than  two  or  three  syllables  are  lost  by 
the  two  stampings  of  the  post  office  on  the  concentric 
lines. 

Seventy-five  or  eighty  words  can  be  inscribed  on  a 
phonocard,  which  is  sufficient  for  news.  One  object  of 
the  phonocard  is  to  replace  the  illustrated  post  card. 
Further,  it  is  possible  to  be  far  more  chatty  on  a  phono- 
postal  than  on  an  ordinary  post  card,  for  on  the  latter 
there  is  only  a  little  rectangular  space  left  which  can  be 
written  on. 


AT  CARDINAL  HOUSE. 

Now  is  the  time  for  dealers  to  make  their  selection 
of  goods  for  the  Summer  and  early  Fall  trade.  Thev 
should  carefully  consider  what  lines  to  handle  and  also 
where  to  buy  them.  A  good  place  to  secure  amateui 
photo  albums,  pictorial  post  cards,  etc.,  is  Cardinal 
House,  St.  John's  Lane,  London,  E.C.,  the  premises  of 
Ferd.  Anthony  Horle  &  Co.  This  firm  have  several  ex- 
cellent lines   on    display; 

Should   the  dealer  also  decide  to  take  up  a  few 
fancy   lines,    the   Cardiral   Boxed   Serviettes,    supplied     by 
the  above  firm,  can  be  recommended.     These  arc    just  the 
thing   for   picnics.     Price   lists   of   a]l    these   goods   will    be 
sent   on  application.

R.   A.   J.  LITTLE,    OSHAWA,   ONT. 

IT  was  in  November,  1897,  that  Mr.  R.  A.  J.  Little 
landed  in  Oshawa.  He  had  absolutely  no  experience 
in  bookselling-,  and  it  was  somewhat  of  a  daring- 
thing  for  him  to  take  over  the  business  previously  con- 
ducted by  Mr.  E.  E.  Rogers.  But  Mr.  Little  had  confi- 
dence in  himself;  he  realized  that  Oshawa  was  bound  to 
grow,   and  he   was  willing  to  learn  from  experience.

The  Little  store   is     in     two   parts,   being  practically 
two  stores  joined  by   a   twenty-foot  archway.     The  south 
section  is  devoted  to  fancy  goods,   wall  paper,   and  roller 
blinds.      The   north    section    is   given    over    to    books,    sta

With  cautious  steps  and   watchful  eyes  he  set  to  work      etc.      The      frontage     extends     Eortj   two      feet    along    the 


to  develop  his  business.  He  succeeded.  Soon  his  orig- 
inal quarters  became  ton  small  to  accommodate  his 
ever-growing  trade.  Year  by  year  he  enlarged  his 
premises.  To-day  he  occupies  four  times  the  floor  space 
he  did  at  the  outset   eight    years   ago. 

Mr.  Little  speaks  candidly  of  the  reasons  for  the 
growth  of  his  business.  "We  attribute  our  success;"  he 
said,  "to  hard  work  on  the  part  of  hustling  and  obliging

use  of  all  the  latest  devices  for  displaying  his  wares.  One 
feature  is  a  wire  netting,  stretched  the  entire  length  of 
the  store,  on  which  are  hung  sheet  music,  pictures  and 
similar  lines.  Credit  for  this  suggestion  is  due  Mi

a  personal  friend  of  Mr.  Little's.     A  system  of  cash  car 
triers  connects  all  parts  of  the  store  with  the  desk. 

An  excellent  staff  surrounds  Mr.  Little— one  that  is 
much  larger  than  is  to  be  found  in  many  city  stores. 
Assisting  Mr.  Little  in  the  management  of  the  store  is 
Mr.  S.  Babe,  who  takes  charge  of  the  general  arrange 
ment,  and  has  also  particular  supervision  of  the  depart- 
ment devoted  to  sleighs,  wagons,  sporting  coo. Is,  wall 
paper,   roller  blinds,   etc. 

The  fancy  dry  goods  department,  which  contains 
silks,  wools,  braids,  pom  poms,  girdles,  etc.,  is  in  charge 
of  Miss  Richardson.  Miss  McCoig  looks  after  the  leather- 
goods,  including  albums,  leather-bound  Ribles,  hymn 
books  and  poets,  fancy  boxes,  trinkets,  etc.  Miss  Arm 
strong  presides  Over  the  toys,  games,  dolls,  pictures, 
music,  violins  and  musical  instruments.  The  stationery, 
school  supplies,  newspapers  and  magazines,  come  under 
Miss  Babcock's  care.  Miss  Kemp  is  the  firm's  book 
keeper,  and  she  also  takes  charge  of  magazine,  and  news- 
paper subscriptions,  and  attends  to  the  correspondence, 
ordering,  etc. 

In  addition  to  this  regular  staff  there  is  a  corps  of 
extra  clerks  for  busy  days,  consisting  of  Miss  Mabel 
Babcock,      Miss     Mamie     Ford,     Miss   Elva   Trull,    Miss

Miss  Halfacre,  Mr.  Mervin  Rowe,  Mr.  Frank  Hall,  and 
Master  Harry  Harrison. 

Mr.  Little  runs  a  lending  library  in  connection  with 
his  store.  The  charge  is  two  cents  a  day  for  one  book, 
and  the  latest  fiction  is  supplied.  The  department  is  ex- 
tensively patronized  and  pays  well.  This  scheme  also 
was  a  suggestion  of  Mr.   Stewart's. 

Dodgers  and  novelties  are  used  to  good  purpose  by 
Mr.  Little  for  advertising  his  business.  He  issues  a 
vest-pocket  street  car  time  table  every  Summer,  with  an 
advertisement  on  it.  Another  device  is  a  handy  phone 
directory  to  hang  on  the  telephone  with  the  names  of 
local  telephone  holders  printed  alphabetically  on  it.  Still 
another  is  a  match  scratcher  with  a  local  view  on  it. 
All  these  articles  are  made  in  Oshawa  by  the  local 
printers,  and  are  attractively  tied  with  cord  or  ribbon. 
They  are  prized  by  those  who  receive  them,  and  are  care- 
fully preserved.  In  addition  Mr.  Little  issues  dodgers 
each  week,  which  are  placed  in  every  house  in  the  town 
by  a  special  distributor. 

One  reason  which  might  be  suggested  as  a  cause  of 
Mr.  Little's  success  is  that  he  does  not  keep  his  nose  to 
the   grindstone    all   the   time,    but    travels    around    in    the 


Magazine  and  Picture  Section. 

ronto  he  buys  the  most  of  his  goods  from  the  travelers. 
He  believes  in  standing  in.  with  the  travelers,  which  is 
a  good  principle,  as  they  can  often  do  a  merchant  favors 
that  the  firm   would   not  do. 

Some  of  these  travelers,  among  whom  are  George 
Stewart,  Jiinmie  Anderson  of  the  Fancy  Goods  Co., 
George  Bryant  of  Warwick's,  etc.,  say  they  seldom  call 
at  this  store  without  getting  an  order,  unless  the  pro 
prietor  is  away,  which,  the  travelers  tell  us,  is  often 
the  case.  They  say  he  takes  a  week  in  mid  winter 
visiting  his  old  home  at  llespeler;  two  weeks  in  June  at 
the  Oshawa  Fishing  &  Hunt,  Club's  quarters  near  Al 
gonquin  Park,  in  Parry  Sound  district;  a  few  weeks  in 
mid-summer  when  business  is  dull,  and  two  "weeks  in 
November,  deer  hunting,  after  which  trips  the  travelers 
say  they  always  watch  for  an  express  parcel  containing 
a  string  of  trout  or  a  piece  of  venison.  Mr.  Little's  plan 
is  a  good  one.  A  business  man  works  to  much  better 
advantage  by  taking  plenty  of  holidays.  It  seems  to 
clear  the  cobwebs  away  from  a  fellow's  brain,  especially 
if  there  is  a  great  amount  of  worrying  detail  in  e.onnec 
tion  with  the  business.

February,   1906 


THE  MUSSON  BOOK  CO.  STAFF. 

THE  book  trade  of  Canada  will  be  interested  in  the 
announcement  by  the  Muason  Book  Company,  To- 
ronto, of  •  the  fact  that  Canada's  oldest  book 
traveler,  the  genial  W.  C.  Bell,  (Billy),  joins  forces  with 
them  this  month.  It  would  be  impossible  to  find  a  book- 
seller in  the  Dominion  who  has  never  seen  or  heard  of 
W.  C.  Bell,  so  thoroughly  has  he  covered  every  part  of 
the  country  since  his  initiation,  at  the  early  age  of 
fifteen,  as  a  commercial  traveler  for  the  once  famous 
publishing  house--  of  James  Campbell  &  Son,  of  Toronto, 
representing  them  as  far  east  as  Halifax.  Many  years 
have  passed,  many  changes  have  come,  still  this  juvenile 
traveler  retains  all  his  youthful  energies.  Mr.  Bell  will 
cover  the  same  ground  for  the  Musson  Book  Company 
that  he  has  been  doing  in  the  past,  and  the  already 
rapid  growth  of  the  company  will  be  given  increased 
stimulus. 

L.   A.    Gemmefl,   who  has  represented     them    on     the 
coast  trip  in  former  years,  has  been  placed  in  charge  of 


land.      This      is     altogether      a    new    feature    in    the    book 
trade,  and  opens  a  field  for  large  development.

sented I  he  Musson  Book  Company  in  Eastern  Ontario 
and  the  Maritime  Provinces,  will  continue  to  do  so. 

These  changes  will  not  prevent  the  many  customers 
who  look  forward  regularly  to  meeting  with  the  happy 
president  of  the  Musson  Book  Company  from  having;  the 
same  pleasure  just  as  often,  for  during  1906  he  will  be 
on  his  usual  trips  with  a  fuller  line  of  samples  than  ever. 

The  rapid  growth  of  this  company  since  its  organiza- 
tion about  five  years  ago  has  been  remarkable.  Each 
year  they  have  been  compelled  to  increase  their  prem- 
ises, and  at  the  beginning  of  the  present  year  we  find

BACK  FKOM  EUROPE. 

A  REPRESENTATIVE  of  Booksellei  and  Stationer 
had  the  pleasure  of  an  interview  with  Mr.  G.  R. 
Warwick,  president  of  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter, 
Limited,  who  returned  on  the  steamer  King  Albert  from 
Naples,  after  having  visited  all  the  manufacturing  centres 
of  Germany,  Austria,  France  and  England,  in  search  of 
new  goods  for  the  holiday  trade  for  1906. 

In  speaking  of  his  trip,  Mr.  Warwick  states  that  one 
of  t he  most  noticeable  features  in  connection  with  the 
trade,  not  only  in  England  but  in  every  European  town 
and   city,    was    the    marvelous   growth   of   the   picture   post

February,  1906 


BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


card  business.  Five  years  ago  it  was  presumed  this  trade 
was  at  its  height  on  the  continent,  but  it  is  certainly, 
up  to  the  present,  showing  no  signs  of  diminishing. 

The  demand  is  constantly  increasing  for  the  better 
class  of  scenic  cards,  rather  than  for  the  ordinary  comic 
and  lower  grades.  The  smaller  stores,  while,  of  course, 
having  a  good  supply  of  the  low  price  lines,  give  every 
prominence  tu  those  which  retail  at  what  would  he  equiva- 
lent in  Canadian  currency  to  from  four  to  twelve  cents 
each,  and  these  goods  seem  to  find  a  ready  market  every- 
where. 

This  great  boom  on  the  better  grade  of  goods  is  due 
to  the  widespread  popularity  of  making  post  card  collec- 
tions, and  this  has  in  its  turn  created  a  large  and  profit- 
able sale  for  the  post  card  albums,   the  demand  for  which 


the  manufacturers  find  it  almost   impossible  to  cope  with. 

As  an  illustration,  Mr.  Warwick  was  shown  a  com- 
munication from  one  of  the  large  English  houses  offering  a 
considerable  premium  above  the  prices  at  which  their  ol- 
der was  hooked,  if  these  albums  could  be  shipped  in  a 
reasonable  time. 

The  labor  troubles  with  which  Germany  has  had  to 
conl end  during  the  last  year  seriously  interfered  with 
business  in  general,  but  these  have  now  righted  them- 
selves to  a  great  extent,  and  manufacturers  are  putting 
forth  every  effort  to  supply  the  market  with  new  effects 
for  the  coming  season. 

Mr.  Warwick  reports  that  he  was  very  successful  in 
finding  many  novelties,  which  he  is  certain  will  interest 
the  Canadian  trade.

DO  YOU  WANT  TO  DO  MORE  BUSINESS  ? 

The  Berliner  Gram-o-phone  and  Victor  Talking  Machine  trade 
is  i  l;M  at  your  very  door.  The  general  advertising  we  have 
done  and  the  quality  of  the  instruments  and  records  have  brought  it 
there.  A  little  local  advertising — which  w6  are  willing  to  do  to  help 
new  agents  — will  bring  it  right  inside. 

We  published  188  New  Records  in  January  and 
shall  publish  85  New  Records  in  February,  while 
about  60  will  be  published  in  March,  including 
some  magnificent  Red  Seal  Records  by  Mesdames 
Melba  and  Schumann- Heink  and  other  world  renowned 
vocalists,  musicians  and  bands. 

THERE  IS  MORE  MONEY  TO  BE  MADE  in  handling 
our  instruments  and  records  than  in  books  and  sheet  music,  and  we 
will  convince  you  of  this  if  vou  will  write  us  for  our  netv  and 
liberal  discounts  to  the  trade,

It  goes  into  homes  that  bar  other  newspapers. 

The  London  Times'  Cable  News  Reports  appear 
in  this  country  exclusively  in  THE  NEW  YORK

the  day. 

The  Magazine  Section  accompanying  the  SUN- 
DAY TIMES  presents  a  variety  of  interesting  illus- 
trated features  and  a  unique  selection  of  the  best 
stories  about  men  and  women  of  prominence. 

The  Financial  Section  gives  a  weekly  review  of 
current  prices  of  stocks  and  bonds;  also  the  dealings 
in  securities,  including  high  and  low  prices — com- 
prising a  compact  and  convenient  reference  publi-

BUT  OUR  POLICY 
AS  PRODUCERS  IS 

CONSERVATIVE 

Why  are  we  Conservative  ?     Because,  while  vre  aie 

onstantly    watching    scientific  developments,    with    a 

view  to  improving  our  goods,  if  possible,  we  don't  make 

cha   ges  "haphazard  "  before  we  know  they  are  for  the 

better. 

Why    are     we.   Liberal  ?      First — because    we    like 
such  a  policy,  and  then  we  find  the  trade  appreciates  it. 

We  take  our  stand   on    the  attractiveness  of  our 

packages— which  draws  the  attention— and  on  the 
quality  of  our  goods — which  holds  the  patronage  If-

Card  players  everywhere  prefer 

Bicycle  Playing  Cards 

and  are  dissatisfied  if  they  cannot  get  them  from  their  dealer. 

Bicycle  cards  are  good  cards.     That  is  why  there  are  more  of  them  sold  than  of  all  other  popular- 
priced  brai.ds  combined.      That  is  why  players  want  them — why  dealers  have  so  many  calls  for  them. 

Then — the  dealer  knows  he  can  recommend  them  safely— because  they   always   give   satisfaction, 
and  a  satisfied  customer  is  a  dealer's  best  advertisement. 

Progressive   dealers  use  them   for  leaders,   and  thus  get  the  benefit  of  years   of   advertising  and 
reputation  for  good  quality. 

Orders  should  be  placed  with  jobbers.

PROMINENT  DEALERS  DISCUSS  THE  POST   CARD  TRADE. 


A  FEW  dealers  here  and  there  throughout  the  more 
important  trade  centres  of  Canada  have  favored 
Bookseller  and  Stationer  with  their  views  of  the 
picture  post  card  business.  They  one  and  all  agree  that 
the  trade  has  had  a  phenomenal  growth.  Some  consider 
that  it  has  reached  its  limit.  Others  hold  that  it  will 
still  grow.  Their  varied  experiences,  their  selling 
schemes  and  their  difficulties  will  be  of  interest  and 
value  to  our  readers. 

Cloke  &  Son,  Hamilton. 

Last  year  we  sold  more  post  cards  than  ever  before, 
but  we  don't  find  any  of  the  phenomenal  sales  we  hear 
about.  Our  best  sellers  are  local  view  cards  and  comics 
and  our  equipment  consists  of  three  large  revolving 
stands.  We  expect  the  sale  to  continue  for  some  time 
longer. 

We  think  our  trade  should  keep  the  better  cards, 
keep  up  prices,  sell  none  less  than  3c.  or  2  for  5c,  even 
though  the  cost  is  small.  We  think  the  cards  that  are 
put  up  in  envelopes,  6  in  a  set,  should  be  sold  only  in 
sets.  This  rule  seems  to  prevail  in  most  places,  and 
works  well,  and  means  a  15c.  sale  instead  of  a  smaller 
one,  and  the  poorer  sellers  are  not  left  on  hand.  A  little 
courteous  firmness  is  all  that's  needed. 
R.  A.  J.  Little,  Oshawa. 

The  post  card  business  had  been  booming  for  some 
time  in  other  parts  before  we  could  work  up  any  great 
demand  for  souvenir  cards  in  our  town.  At  last  we  decided 
to  get  a  big  variety  and  advertise  and  show  them  well, 
and  try  and  create  a  good  demand,  which  we  did.  Among 
other  lines  we  got  a  close  price  from  W.  G.  MacFarlane 
on  3,000  colored  cards  of  one  view.  We  had  the  follow- 
ing advertisement  printed  on  the  address  side  of  about 
2,000  of  these  cards  (A)  and  had  them  delivered  to  every 
house  in  town.  It  seemed  to  give  the  post  card  business 
a  start. 

We  kept  the  cards  well  displayed  on  poultry  netting 
up  the  sides  of  the  windows,  also  on  large  sheets  of  col- 
ored matting  suspended  from  the  ceiling  of  the  windows. 
In  making  a  post  card  window  we  had  two  large  post 
card  racks  and  an  automatic  display  machine.  These 
made  a  good  background.  On  the  bottom  of  the  window 
we  showed  cards  laid  flat  in  boxes.  We  think  more  of 
these  boxes  for  showing  cards  than  we  do  of  the  dis- 
play racks.     When  we  have  the  boxes  and  the  racks  side 


oy  side  on  a  table  in  the  store  customers  will  look  the 
cards  over  in  the  boxes  and  not  seem  to  notice  the 
racks.  These  boxes  are  the  ordinary  stock  boxes  that 
Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter  ship  their  cards  in.  Each  box 
holds  one  hundred  cards.  And  in  using  them  for  display 
purposes  we  use  the  lids  as  well,  as  each  lid  will  hold  as 
many  as  the  box.  We  bought  a  few  dozen  extra  boxes 
from  them  at  a  very  low  cost. 

The  style  of  card  we  have  had  the  best  success  with 
is  a  sepia  with  egg-shell  roughening,  which  we  got  from 
W.  G.  MacFarlane.  It  is  not  an  expensive  card,  but  a 
ready  seller,  as  it  has  a  good  appearance  and  the  pic- 
ture is  very  clear.  We  had  souvenir  books  of  the  town 
published  by  this  fir.ni,  and  had  them  use  the  same  cuts 
in  making  cards.     In  this  way  we  got  a  very  close  price 

IT   IS  SOMETHING  AWFUL 

The  way  we  are  selling 

F»OST    CARDS 

We  have  just  received  a  lot  of  new 
ones  of  Churches,  Streets,  Hotels. 
Private  Residences,  Park  and  Lake 
Scenes.  Also  a  pretty  little  book  of 
Oshawa  Views  to  sell  at  25  Cents. 
We  also  have  a  nice  assortment 
of  Xmas  Post  Cards.  Some  pretty 
designs. 

LITTLE'S. 

and  a  large  variety  of  cards  without  having  to  take  too 
many.  Another  way  we  took  of  getting  a  good  variety 
of  views  without  much  outlay  was  to  visit  the  local 
printers  and  get  a  collection  of  cuts  of  town  scenes 
which  they  had  used  in  one  way  and  another.  Of  these 
we  had  only  a  few  hundred  of  each  printed,  merely  to 
have  the  variety. 

We  have  boomed  the  post  card  business  because  there 
is  money  in  it.  We  advertise  the  new  cards  as  we  get 
them.  We  keep  a  good  assortment  of  comic,  colored  and 
leather  cards,  with  the  souvenir  ones,  as  they  brighten 
up  the  display  and,  of  course,  are  easily  sold.  Occa- 
sionally we  have  customers  who  want  these  comics  with 
the  name  of  the  town  on  them.  We  sometimes  have  the 
words  "From  Oshawa"  printed  on  a  number  of  cards  to 
fill  this  demand. 

By  means  of  advertising  we  have  worked  up  a  great 


BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


March.  1906 


demand  for  post  cards  for  special  seasons,  such  as 
Christmas,  St.  Valentine's  Day,  Easter,  etc.  We  show 
there  early  in  the  season  in  the  windows  and  mention 
them  in  the  newspapers  or  on  the  dodgers  which  \vc 
send  out  every  week. 

We  sell  a  great  many  albums  by  having  them  dis- 
played near  the  eards. 

Although  the  craze  is  getting  to  be  an  old  one,  it 
does  not  seem  to  be  lagging  any,  as  there  seems  to  be 
more  demand  than  ever  for  the  good  cards,  and  we  see 
no  reason  why  it  should  not  last  for  years. 

Charles  L.  Nelles,  Guelph. 

The  post  card  business  has  reached  its  limit,  in  fact 
it  did  that  a  year  ago,  and  How  it  is  more  of  a  staple 
line  than  a  novelty.  The  sale  was  created  from  the 
album  business  and  the  rivalry  of  procuring  the  greatest 
number  of  different  cards  from  all  parts  of  the  world, 
but  it  has  become  so  cheap  and  extensive  that  the  col- 
lecting has  become  tiresome  and  the  number  so  great 
that  they  are  too  common. 

As  far  as  our  business  in  concerned,  they  will  al- 
ways be  kept  for  transient  use,  this  being  the  easier  way 
of  reminding  those  at  home  of  your  whereabouts,  but  we 
do  not  expect  the  volume  of  trade  we  had  last  season, 
and  within  a  short  time  it  will  be  restricted  to  local 
views  and  cards  for  the  seasons  such  as  Valentines  and 
Christmas  ones. 

Four  or  five  years  ago  we  put  up  our  own  cards. 
Special  photos  were  taken,  half-tones  made,  cards  cut 
from  cream  bristol  boards  and  printed  by  local  men. 
These  we  sold  in  thousands  until  the  Canadian  manufac- 
turers got  the  craze,  and  now  we  have  special  views  put 
up  by  them.  The  sale  last  year  would  be  from  20  to  30 
thousand  in  my  store.  We  also  have  an  exclusive  book 
of  Guelph  views  made  up  by  the  Albertype  Company, 
Brooklyn,  and  which  retails  for  fifty  cents.  Of  these  we 
sold  900  in  three  months. 

Do  not  think  I  am  pessimistic  and  that  the  post  card 
business  is  finished,  as  it  is  not,  but  I  consider  that  it 
has  reached  its  highest  point.  Besides,  the  cheap  comic 
lines,  some  of  which  are  too  nasty,  have  helped  consid- 
erably to  bring  down  the  tone  of  the  whole  line,  and  also 
to  reduce  the  price.  At  present  I  have  an.  order  in  for 
twelve  thousand,  which  goes  to  prove  that  I  am  not  yet 
quite  out  of  it. 

As  for  general  business,  I  think  1906  will  hold  its 
own  in  all  lines,  but  it  will  be  a  very  difficult  thing  to 
beat  1905,  which  was  a  record-breaker,  I  think,  in  all 
these  parts  of  Ontario. 

Jas.  I.  Anderson  &  Co.,  London, 

The  development  of  the  post  card  trade  with  us  in 
the  last  few  years  has  been  quite  wonderful.  We  remem- 
ber with  what  fear  and  trembling  our  first  order  was 
placed  for  3,000  cards,  and  our  elation  at  the  rapid  dis- 
posal of  them.  We  were  the  first  here  to  handle  the  lo- 
cal souvenir  cards,  and  for  the  first  two  years  had  quite 
a  snap,  but,  alas,  for  competition,  which  develops  quite 
as  rapidly  as  the  article  itself.  Soon  all  the  other 
stores  were  in  line,  and  now  bazaars  and  even  drug 
stores  have  entered  the  contest. 

The  cards  in  greatest  demand  are  those  of  local  in- 
terest, though  there  has  been  an  increasing  demand  of 
late  for  Canadian  views. 

We  find  it  difficult  to  make  a  proper  display  of 
cards,  the  variety  is  so  endless.  Our  local  views,  with 
some  special*  lines,   we  show  in  a  revolving  stand  on  the 


counter,  and  the  other  lines  are  shown  in  baskets.  As- 
sortments of  Canadian  scenes  in  one,  comics  in  another, 
fancy  in  another,  and  so  on.  With  regard  to  the  pos- 
sible continuation  of  the  trade  we  are  rather  pessimis- 
tic. There  will  always  be  a  demand,  more  or  less,  for 
the  local  view  cards,  but  for  the  others  we  fear  a 
slump  at  any  time.  There  are  signs  now  that  in  comics 
and  fancy  cards  the  demand  is  slackening. 

There  are  altogether  too  many  making  souvenir 
cards  ;  the  market  is  fairly  flooded,  and  speaking  from 
our  own  experience,  if  we  were  to  place  orders  with  all 
the  travelers  who  call  on  us  soliciting,  instead  of 
thousands  we  would  soon  have  millions. 

One  regrettable  feature  of  the  card  trade  has  been 
the  placing  on  the  market  by  some  dealers  of  numbers  of 
comics  which,  to  put  it  very  mildly,  are  decidedly  vul- 
gar, and  the  writer  has  been  more  than  surprised  that 
some  of  the  better  class  of  retailers  have  given  these 
cards  a  place  on  their  counters. 

We  suppose  the  souvenir  card  line  will  be  much  the 
same  as  other  lines,  outside  of  those  strictly  staple;  sales 
will  fluctuate,  some  lines  will  drop  out,  and  only  those 
which  appeal  to  the  public  will  remain. 

E.    G.   Nelson  &    Co.,   St.   John. 

The  post  card  business  has  grown  with  us  from  a  very 
small  beginning  about  three  years  ago,  to  one  of  the  most 
important  branches  of  our  business.  We  sell  more  of  the 
local  view  cards  than  any  other,  but  at  the  same  time  it 
seems  that  almost  any  artistic  card  will  sell.  We  ddnot 
ihink  there  will  be  any  sudden  drop  in  the  business  and 
have  little  doubt  that  it  will  be  good  for  some  time  yet. 


AN  IRREGULARITY  IN  THE  BOOK  TRADE. 

IN  the  jobbing  business  in  Canada  there  is  an  injustice 
being  done  that  it  might  be  well  to  refe"  t'j   at    the 

present  time  in  the  columns  of  Bookseller  and  Sta- 
tioner. Most  Canadian  publishers  represent  certain 
other  publishers  either  of  Great  Britain  or  the  United 
States.  As  their  representatives  they  alone  are  given  a 
range  of  samples,  enter  into  an  agreement,  in  some  cases 
introduce  the  whole  line  for  the  first  time,  and  quite 
justly  feel  that  they  should  be  the  proud  possessors  of 
the  right  to  profit  thereby. 

The  irregularity  and  injustice  comes  when  another 
jobber  with  coveteous  eye  observes  that  he  has  missed 
something,  and  immediately  sets  out  to  out-do  the 
rightful  representative  in  a  legal  but  nevertheless  not  a 
straightforward  way. 

An  instance  of  this  comes  to  the  writer's  notice  at 
the  present  time.  The  Musson  Book  Company  have  en- 
tered into  an  agreement  with  I.  N.  Foulis,  of  Edinburgh 
and  London,  to  be  their  sole  representatives  in  Canada. 
Their  success  with  this  line  last  year  prompted  others  to 
endeavor  to  secure  the  agency,  who,  being  unsuccessful, got 
some  English  publisher  to  buy  samples  in  such  a  way 
that  they  are  not  suspected  as  having  been  bought  for 
Canadian  trade,  hoping  to  be  able  to  practice  the  same 
deception  with  the  filling  of  subsequent  orders.  In  the 
meantime  the  Musson  Book  Company,  who  are  the  right- 
ful representatives,  suffer  to  the  extent  that  the  other 
benefits.     . 

Again,  how  often  the  Canadian  resident  representa- 
tives of  the  English  and  American  publishers  are  un 
justly  dealt  with,  rand  in  some  cases  the  esteem  in  which 
these  publishers  hold  their  representatives  is  lessened  by 
an  attempt  on  the  part  of  Canadian  publishers  to  deal 
direct.  Surely  there  are  regular  channels  through  which 
trade  should  pass,  and  the  reputation  of  all  Canadian 
publishing  houses  suffers  because  of  the  petty  smallness 
of  some  few.

"Karl  Grier,"  the  new  novel  by  Louis  Tracy,  which 
introduces  the  man  with  the  sixth  sense,  was  published  on 
March  1  and  is  selling  remarkably  well.  It  is  a  Tracy 
book  and  that  is  sufficient  to  sell  it. 

Upton  Sinclair's  powerful  novel  dealing  with  the 
Chicago  stock  yards  and  entitled  "The  Jungle"  will  be 
out  on  March  15.  This  book  has  aroused  intense  feeling 
in  the  United  States,  where  its  socialistic  tendencies  have 
been  bitterly  assailed. 

"The  ArncliiTe  Puzzle,"  by  Gordon  Holmes,  and  "The 
Weight  of  a  Crown,"  by  Fred  M.  White,  two  stories  of 
the  detective  variety,  were  issued  late  in  February.  Both 
have  been  in  strong  demand  both  in  cloth  and  paper  edi- 
tions. 

"The  Dawn  of  To-Morrow,"  by  Frances  Hodgson  Bur- 
nett, and  "The  Last  Spike,"  by  Cy  Warman,  were  pub- 
lished on  March  1.  The  latter  volume  is  of  particular  in- 
terest to  Canadians  as  its  author  is  a  resident  of  London, 
Ontario.    The  book  contains  a  number  of  railroad  stories. 

March  publications  of  McLeod  &  Allen  include  "The 
Golden  Greyhound,"  by  Dwight  Tilton,  "The  Girl  from 
Tim's  Place,"  by  Chas.  Clark  Munn,  and  "Alton  of 
Somasco,"  by  Harold  Bindloss.  (Cloth  $1.25,  paper  75 
cents.) 

WILLIAM  BRIGGS. 

William  Briggs  has  secured  for  publication  in  April 
"The  Expiation  of  Eugene,"  by  Frederick  H.  Balfour^  a 
strong  novel  by  an  English  writer.     (Cloth  only  $1.25.) 

He  has  also  arranged  for  the  publication  of  a  Cana- 
dian edition  of  "Count  Bunker,"  by  Clouston,  the  author 
of  "Lunatics  at  Large."    (Cloth  only  $1.25.) 

William  Briggs  has  just  placed  on  the  market  Cana- 
dian editions  of  "The  Scarlet  Pimpernel"  and  "A  Son  of 
the  People,"  both  by  Baroness  Orczy.  These  two  books 
have  been  extremely  popular  in  England  during  the  past 
Winter.     (Cloth  $1.25.    Paper  75  cents.) 

"The  High  Toby,"  by  H.  B.  Marriott-Watson,  being 
episodes   in   the  career   of   a  noted   highwayman,     will   be 


ready  about  March  15,  as  will  also  "The  Mayor  of  Troy," 
by   A.   T.   Quiller-Couch. 

The  next  McCutcheon  book  has  been  secured  by  Wil- 
liam Briggs.  Its  title  is  "Cowardice  Court."  As  usual 
the  first  edition  will  be  beautifully  illustrated  and  will 
have  a  unique  cover  design.  It  will  be  ready  on  April  1. 
(Cloth   $1.25.) 

"How  to  Prepare  for  Europe"  is  the  title  of  a  new 
guide  book  which  is  claimed  to  be  the  best  yet.  Every- 
thing is  compressed  into  a  single  volume,  which  contains 
all  the  information  and  maps  necessary  for  a  journey  to 
any   part  of  Europe. 

A  Canadian  edition  of  "Broke  of  Covenden,"  by  J.  C. 
Snaith,  will  be  published  immediately  by  William  Briggs 
in  cloth  and  paper  editions   ($1.25  and  75  cents). 

On  April  1  William  Briggs  will  bring  out  a  rattling 
romance,  "A  Motor  Car  Divorce,"  by  Louise  Clossen 
Hale.  In  view  of  the  immense  popularity  of  motoring, 
this  book  should  be  in  considerable  demand. 

William  Briggs  has  secured  a  25-cent  paper  edition  of 
"John  Chilcote,  M.P.,"  by  Katharine  Cecil  Thurston. 
This  is  none  other  than  "The  Masquerader,"  masquerad- 
ing under  the  title  the  book  bore  in  the  Old  Country.  At 
25  cents  the  book  should  have  a  phenomenal  sale. 

THE  COPP,  CLARK  CO.,  LIMITED. 

Two  of  the  Spring  publications  of  this  house  are  now 
on  the  market,  "Saints  in  Society,"  the  prize  novel  by 
Mrs.  Baillie-Saunders,  and  "Carolina  Lee,"  by  Lilian 
Bell.  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  are  also  placing,  for  the  Amer-

Dillon,  author  of  "The  Rose  of  Old  St.  Louis." 

"My  Sword  for  Lafayette,"  the  new  Pemberton  book, 
will  be  ready  about  the  end  of  the  month.  Advance  or- 
ders are  very  satisfactory. 

S.  R.  Crockett's  new  book,  which  is  being  marketed 
in  the  United  States  under  the  title  of  "Fishers  of  Men," 
will  be  published  in  Canada  with  the  original  title,  "Kid 
McGhie  ;  A  Nugget  of  Dim  Gold."  It  is  said  to  be  writ- 
ten in  Crockett's  most  popular  and  characteristic  style. 
(Cloth,  illustrated,  $1.25.) 

The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  will  have  the  only  bona  fide  new 
novel  by  Guy  Thorne  written  since  "When  It  Was  Dark" 
was  published.  It  bears  the  title  "Made  in  His  Image," 
and  is  a  remarkable  study  in  sociology,  contrasting,  the 
beliefs  and  methods  of  two  Oxford  graduates,  both  of 
whom  struggle  for  the  amelioration  of  the  human  race. 

"The  Corsican  Lovers,"  by  Charles  Felton  Pidgin,  is 
a  story  of  the  Vendetta,  to  be  published  this  Spring.  Its 
author  will  best  be  remembered  from  his  earlier  book, 
"Quincy  Adams  Sawyer,"  of  which  over  3Uu,U0u  copies 
have  been  sold. 

Among  Spring  books  arranged  for  by  The  Copp,  Clark

Great  Refusal"  by  Maxwell  Gray,  "The  Healers"  by

"The  Freemasons"  by  L.  S.  Gibson,  and  "A  Diplomatic 
Adventure,"   by  S.'Weir  Mitchell. 

"Common  Ground"  is  the  name  selected  by  Sydney  H. 
Preston,,  of  Toronto,  for  his  new  novel.  It  is  an  amusing 
story  of  a  man,  a  woman  and  a  chicken  farm.  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  will  bring  out  the  Canadian  edition. 

"Landscape  Painting  and  Modern  Dutch  Artists"  is  an

Muslin   Books  for  children.     These  are  rag   toy  books  and 
as  the  saying  goes 

"They   may   be   washed 

And  the  colors  will  not  run. 
A  child  can  chew  them 
And  have  lots  of  fun." 
The  Muslin  Books  come  in  four  sizes,   which  retail  at  15, 
25,  50  and  75  cents  according  to  size. 

THE  MACMILLAN  CO.,  OF  CANADA. 

"The  Portreeve,"  by  Eden  Phillpotts,  which  appeared 
on  February  8,  is  enjoying  what  the  publishers  consider  a 
phenomenal  sale. 

The  Macmillan  Company  have  just  brought  out  a  new 
"Life  of  John  Wesley,"  for  which  they  expect  great 
things.  It  is  written  by  Professor  Winchester,  of  the 
Wesleyan  University,  whose  former  writings  on  criticism, 
etc.,  are  well  known.  The  treatment  is  from  an  entirely 
new  standpoint  and  will  represent  the  feeling  of  the  mod- 
ern  Methodist   Church.     ($1.50.) 

New  novels  shortly  to  be  published  are  Egerton  Cas- 
tle's "If  Youth  but  Knew,"  Owen  Wister's  "Lady  Balti- 
more" (April)  and  Winston  Churchill's  "Conniston" 
(J une V 

Among  books  of  reference  the  Macmillan  Company 
have  already  issued  "Who's  Who"  (1906)  and  they  will 
shortly  publish  "The  Statesman's  Year  Book"  and  "The 
Writers'   and   Authors'   Year  Book." 

A  book  which  will  have  great  interest  for  Canada  is 
Andrew  Macphail's  "The  Vine  of  Sibmah."  This  author 
is  very  well  known  in  Montreal  circles  and  will  be  remem- 
bered for  his  "Essays  in  Puritanism."  In  fact,  this  new 
book  of  his  is  the  fiction  side  which  developed  from  the 
study  of  the  material  used  in  his  essays. 

New  books  that  are  still  selling  extremely  well  are 
Lord  Randolph  Churchill's  "Biography,"  Crawford's 
"Salve  Venetia,"  B.  L.  Putnam  Weale's  "Re-shaping  of 
the  Far  East,"  Holman  Hunt's  "PreRaphaelilism,"  and 
the  new  edition  of  "In  Memoriam"  with  Tennyson's 
notes. 

HISTORICAL  PUBLISHING  CO.,    TORONTO. 

The  first  illustrated  edition  of  "Wacousta,"  a  tale  of 
the  Pontiac  Conspiracy,  by  Major  John  Richardson, 
which  was  originally  published  in  1832  in  London,  Eng- 
land, will  be  published  about  the  end  of  the  month  by 
the  Historical  Publishing  Company.  Many  critics  con- 
sider "Wacousta"  to  be  the  greatest  Canadian  novel.  At 
any  rate  the  present  edition  will  be  a  handsome  one, 
with  a  striking  cover  design  and  five  full-page  illustra- 
tions by  Charles  W.   Jefferys. 

OLJFHANT,  ANDERSON  &  FERRIER. 

Oliphant,  Anderson  &  Ferrier,  of  Edinburgh  and  Lon- 
don, announce  a  book  for  young  men  which  is  sure  to 
awaken  interest  in  many  people  in  this  country.  The 
author  is  the  Rev.  Albert  G.  Mackinnon,  whose  father 
was  a  minister  in  Hopewell,  Nova  Scotia,  and.  George- 
town, Prince  Edward  Island,  and  whose  brother,  the 
Rev.  Clarence  Mackinnon,  is  so  well-known  throughout 
the  Dominion.  Mr.  Mackinnon  is  minister  of  the  Lmited 
Free  Church,  Lochmaben,  Dumfriesshire,  Scotland,  and 
his  Sabbath  evening  lectures  are  regularly  published  in 
the  local  paper.  The  volume  is  for  young  men,  and  it  is 
written  in  the  language  of  to-day.  The  title  will  be  : 
"Spiritually  Fit  :  A  Young  Man's  Equipment." 

THE  MUSSON  BOOK  CO., 

The  paper  edition  of  "My  Friend  the  Chauffeur. "  is- 
sued last  month,  isi  meeting  with  quick  sales. 

The  reading  public  is  being  attracted  not  only  by  the 
pretty  cover  but  by  the  literary  merits  of  "Barbara  Wins- 


low,  Rebel,"  by  Elizabeth  Ellis,  of  which  the  Musson  Co. 
are  marketing  the  Canadian  edition.  The  American  pub- 
lishers have  already  printed  five  editions  inside  of  four 
weeks. 

The  Musson  Book  Company  have  just  brought  out 
"The  Truth  about  Tolna,"  by  Bertha  Runkle,  author  of 
"The  Helmet  of  Navarre,"  in  cloth  only.  In  this  story 
is  to  be  found  a  five-sided  battle-royal  between  three  men 
for  the  hearts  of  two  bewitching  maidens.  Both  heroines 
have  not  only  beauty  and  wealth  but  mind  and  character. 

Already  the  first  Canadian  edition  of  "The  Wheel  of 
Life,"  by  Ellen  Glasgow,  has  been  sold  out  and  the 
second  is  moving  well.  Ellen  Glasgow  has  won  many 
friends  among  Canadian  readers  to  all  of  whom  her  new 
novel  will  be  welcome. 

Guy  Thome's  new  novel,  "First  it  was  Ordained," 
will  be  ready  shortly.  This  is  unquestionably  a  strong 
novel,  with  a  remarkable  dramatic  plot,  full  of  fiction. 
It  is  an  appeal  to  all  against  the  greatest  social  curse  of 
the  Anglo-Saxon  race. 

Other  novels  to  be  ready  at  an  early  date  are  "What 
Happened  to  Pam,"  by  Bettina  van  Hutton,  author  of 
"Pain"  ;  "Kenelm's  Desire,"  by  Hughes  Cornell,  a  story 
of  British  Columbia  and  Alaska  ;  "The  Wire  Tappers,"

fices of  an  attractive  English  girl  in  behalf  of  an  electrical 
inventor  ;  "Sands  of  Pleasure,"  by  C.  Young  ;  "Folly,"

charming  high-spirited  heroine  and  the  keynote  of  her  life's 
action  ;  "Hazel  of  Heatherland,"  by  Mabel  Barnes- 
Grundy.  A  new  and  illustrated  edition  of  "The  Fight  for 
Canada,"  by  William  Wood,  will  also  be  published  at 
$2.50  net, 

POOL  PUBLISHING  CO.,  LIMITED  LIMITED. 

About  March  15  the  Poole  Publishing  Company  will 
issue  "The  Genius,"  by  Margaret  Potter.  It  is  a  study 
of  temperament,  the  chief  figure  being  a  man  who  because 
he  was  endowed  with  the  genius  of  a  musician,  had  to 
fight  out  his  life  problems  in  that  solitude,  of  soul  which 
is  always  the  school  of  those  who  would  encompass  any 
enduring  achievement.     The  scene  is  laid  in  Russia. 

A  further  supply  of  "The  Principles  of  Money  and 
Banking,"  by  Charles  A.  Conant,  a  monumental  work  on 
finance,  is  now  on  hand. 

"Men  and  Things,"  the  first  of  Mark  Twain's  series 
of  books  of  humor,  is  now  ready.  The  noted  humorist  is 
merely  acting  as  an  editor  in  this  series  and  the  writings 
of  several  other  humorists  are  included. 

In  the  series  of  "Heroes  of  American  History,"  the 
volume  by  Frederick  A.  Ober  on  "Columbus,  the  Dis- 
coverer," is  now  on  the  market. 

Since  the  last  issue  of  Bookseller  &  Stationer  the 
Poole  Publishing  Co.  have  brought  out  .'The  Long  Arm," 
by  Samuel  M.  Gardenhire,  "Randvar  the  Songsmith,"  bv 
Ottilie  A.  Liljencrantz,  "Silas  Strong,"  by  Irving  Bachel- 
ler,   and   "Miss  Primrose,"  by  Roy   Rolfe  Gilson. 


The  Spring  announcement  list  of  A.  &  C.  Black,  for 
whom  the  Macmillan  Co.  act  in  the  Dominion  as  the  sole 
agents,  shows  many  interesting  additions  to  their  beauti- 
ful color  books  ;  principally  among  these  we  may  mention 
"Thames,"  "Constantinople,"  "Greece,"  "Sussex,"  "Wes- 
sex,"  "Algeria"  .and  "Tunis"  in  the  $t>  series,  and 
"Drudges"  and  '"The  Highlands  and  Islands  of  Scotland" 
in  the  $3.50  series,  and  other  color  books  among  which 
is  included  one  on  "English  Costume."  "The  Blackmore 
Country"  will  be  a  color  book  which  will  appeal  to  a  very 
large  circle  of  readers  on  account  of  the  familiarity  that 
everyone  has  with   "Lorna  Doone."

ELLIS,  BETH.— "Madame,  Will  You  Walk?"  Toronto  : 
Wm.  Briggs.  Cloth,  $1.25.  A  charming  book,  dainty 
in  style,  full  of  sprightly  wit,  and  a  keen  apprecia- 
tion of  the  social  amenities  of  the  time  of  Queen 
Anne.  With  facile  pen  the  writer  has  depicted  the 
stately  dames,  the  gallant  gentlemen  and  extravagant 
wits  of  the  period  in  a  series  of  pretty  stories  in 
which  the  same  characters  are  made  to  appear  in 
separate   tableaux. 

GRIFFITHS,  ARTHUR.  "The  Passenger  from  Calais." 
Boston:  L.  C.  Page  &  Company.  Cloth,  $1.50. 
This  is  an  odd  story  of  the  chase  for  the  heir  of  a 
British  nobleman,  here  and  there  through  Switzer- 
land, France  and  Italy.  Variety  is  added  by  the 
fact  that  the  different  characters  are  each  called  on 
to  give  their  experiences  from  time  to  time.  The 
The  chase  is  the  result  of  a  divorce  case,  the  mother 
determining  to  keep  her  child.  She  is  aided  by  a 
sister,  who  resembles  her  closely,  and  a  British  offi- 
cer. On  the  other  side  are  the  husband  and  several 
detectives. 

MAGNAY,  SIR  WILLIAM.— "A  Prince  of  Lovers."  To- 
ronto :  Poole  Publishing  Co.  Cloth,  .  A 
rattling  good  story  of  the  Zenda  variety,  with  a 
beautiful  princess,  a  prince  incognito,  a  plotting 
prime  minister,  secret  meetings,  assassinations,  an 
elopement,  a  robber  chieftain  and  all  the  other  set- 
tings that  go  to  make  an  absorbing  romance.  Withal 
the  story  is  ably  handled,  not  a  scene  is  overdrawn 
or  burlesque  and  the  interest  is  kept  up  to  the  very 
end. 

RIVES,  HALLIE  ERMINIE.— "Tales  from  Dickens." 
Indianapolis  :  The  Bobbs-Merrill  Co.  When  Charles 
and  Mary  Lamb  wrote  their  "Tales  from  Shakes- 
peare," they  did  a  service  to  the  youth  of  the  land 
that  will  not  soon  be  forgotten.  Following  their 
example,  Miss  Rives  has  attempted  in  this  book  to 
treat  the  novels  of  Charles  Dickens  after  the  same 
fashion.  She  has  succeeded  in  simplifying  fifteen  of 
the  longer  novels  and  putting  them  in  a  form  suit- 
able for  youthful  readers.  A  short  sketch  of  Dickens' 
life  is  inserted  as  a  preface  and  before  each  tale  comes 
a  table,  giving  time,  scene  and  characters.  A  list  of 
all  the  characters  is  appended.  The  book  is  printed 
in  large  type  and  contains  several  excellent  illustra- 
tions. 

ROBERTS,  MORLEY^-"The  Idlers."  Boston  :  L.  C. 
Page  &  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  In  "The  Idlers"  Mr. 
Roberts  presents  a  picture  of  modern  high  society 
life  in  London,  with  its  gossips,  its  scandals  and  its 
evil  influences.  He  plunges  his  hero — a  fine  looking 
but  brainless  young  aristocrat— into  this  fast  life, 
from  which  he  finally  emerges,  singed  it  is  true,  but 
none  the  less  a  sadder  and  a  wiser  man.  The  por- 
trayal of  the  various  characters  in  the  book  is  ad- 
mirable. 

SIENKIEWICY,  KENRYK.— "On  the  Field  of  Glory." 
Boston  :  Little,  Brown  &  0...  Cloth,  $1.50.  A 
romance  of  the  seventeenth  century  in  which  a  tender 
love   story   is   interwoven   with   historical   occurrences' 

.  in  Poland  at  a  time  when  the  Turk  threatened  the 
invasion  of  that  country  and  the  famous  John 
Sobieski    was    the   ruling    sovereign.      Feasting,    love, 


chivalry  and  the  tumult  of  warfare,  all  play  a  part 
in  this  brilliant  tale  by  an  already  famous  author. 

WARMAN,  CY.  —  "The  Last  Spike."  New  York  : 
Charles  Scribner's  Sons.  Toronto  :  McLeod  & 
Allen.  Cloth,  $1.25.  Here  we  have  another  choice 
little  volume  of  those  stories  of  railroad  life  for 
which  Mr.  Warman  is  justly  famous.  The  title  comes 
from  the  first  story,  which  tells  of  the  completion  of 
a  great  transcontinental  road.  Our  own  Grand 
Trunk  Pacific  gives  occasion  for  two  or  three  sketches 
of  engineering  life  in  the  west.  "The  Mysterious 
Signal"  is  a  weird  story  that  is  as  good  as  anything 
in  the  book.     Altogether  there  are  seventeen  stories. 

WINTLE,  GILBERT.— "Strange  Partners."  Toronto  : 
Poole  Publishing  Co.,  Limited.  Cloth,  $1.25.  A 
story  of  two  burglars  who  engage  in  several  ventures 
with  an  amount  of  ingenuity  worthy  of  a  better 
cause  and  in  every  instance  are  successful.  Contrary 
to  wont  they  are  not  overtaken  by  retributive  jus- 
tice but  escape  with  their  ill-gotten  gains. 

ASHTON,  MARK. -"The  Head  of  Gold."  Toronto  : 
Poole  Publishing  Co.,  Limited.  $1.25.  A  story  of 
the  Australian  gold  diggings.  Rupert  Layburne, 
through  the  commission  of  a  crime,  becomes  pos- 
sessor of  a  wonderful  nugget.  Though  made  rich  his 
life  proves  a  failure.  His  partner,  Reginald  Steele, 
after  a  varied  career  as  digger,  bushranger  and  Lon- 
don City  magnate,  is  reclaimed  through  the  devotion 
of  his  long  lost  though  ever  loyal  wife,  thus  fulfilling 
a  superstition  connected  with  the  famous  nugget. 

BOYCE,  NEITH.— "The  Eternal. Spring."  New  York: 
Fox,  Duffield  &  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  Showing  love,  the 
eternal  spring  of  happiness,  as  exemplified  in  the  lives 
of  two  young  Americans  who  meet  in  Italy.  Carle- 
ton  goes  to  Italy  a  nervous  wreck,  thinking  he  is  in 
love  with  a  former  friend,  but  meeting  her  after  a 
lapse  of  several  years  he  finds  it  is  not  really  love  he 
feels  for  her  but  merely  friendship.  He  transfers  his 
affections  to  her  cousin,  a  young  musician,  who 
fancies  she  has  inherited  insanity  and  should  never 
marry.  However,  all  comes  right  in  the  end,  when 
they  find  eternal  spring.  A  very  interesting  and  en- 
joyable little  love  story. 

ELLIS,  ELIZABETH.-"Barbara  Winslow,  Rebel."  To- 
ronto :  The  Musson  Book  Co.,  Limited.  Cloth,  $1.50. 
A  tale  of  adventure  founded  upon  incidents  in  the 
■  Monmouth  Rebellion.  The  heroine,  Barbara  Wins- 
low,  is  endowed  with  beauty  and  courage.  A  merry 
heart  and  a  ready  wit  carry  her  safely  through  un- 
looked  for  misfortunes,  while  her  womanly  sympathy 
and  tact  bring  comfort  to  many  who,  like  herself, 
suffered  unjustly  in  those  troublous  times. 

PHILLPOTTS,  EDEN.  —  "The  Portreeve."  Toronto  : 
The  MacMillan  Co.  of  Canada.  $1.50.  A  story  of 
unusual  power.  The  scene  is  laid  in  Devonshire.  Mr. 
Phillpotts  has  caught  the  spirit  of  the  moor  and  in- 
fused it  into  the  men  and  women  who  live  in  this  his 
latest  book.  The  sombre,  passionate  earnestness  of 
Dodd  Wolferstan,  the  Portreeve — the  kindly  humor  of 
Dicky.  Barkell,  the  gentle  cynic  and  freethinker — and 
the  cruel  vindictiveness  of  Primrose  Horn,  are  re- 
alistic human  expressions  of  the  wide  moorland  coun- 
try vivid  in  portraiture  and  true  to  nature, 

QPTCK,  HERBERT.— "Double  Trouble."  Indianapolis  : 
The  Bobbs-Merrill  Co.,  Toronto  :  McLeod  &  Allen. 
Cloth.  $1.25.  Herbert  Quick  has  created  quite  a  dis- 
tinctive comedy  novel,  based  on  the  old  idea  of  a 
dual  personality.  Florian  Amidon,  a  quiet,  reserved 
business  man,  starting  off  on  a  holiday  trip  to  some

fishing'  reserve,  suddenly  awakes  to  find  himself  trans- 
lated into  another  man  and  well  on  the  way  to  New 
York,  it  happens  that  the  other  man  has  the  repu- 
tation of  being  a  loud,  sporty  individual,  and  the 
lover  of  any  pretty  woman  who  chances  in  his  path. 
This  occulation  of  the  hero  into  the  body  of  such  a 
man  gives  opportunity  for  the  working  out  of  many 
a  dramatic  situation. 

REMINGTON,  FREDERIC— "The  Way  of  an  Indian." 
New  York  :  Fox,  Dufficld  &  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  The 
weird  mystery  that  surrounds  the  life  of  the  Indian, 
influencing  all  his  actions,  is  painted  very  vividly  in 
this  book.  White  Otter,  on  the  brink  of  manhood, 
visits  the  land  of  the  spirits  and  communes  with 
them.  He  finds  his  shadow  in  a  brown  bat,  which  he 
kills  and  carries  thenceforward  as  an  amulet.  Then 
he  sets  out  to  become  a  warrior,  stealing  ponies  and 
killing  an  Absaroke.  The  book  continues  his  life  un- 
til he  becomes  a  chief  and  eventually  dies  after  a 
fight  with  the  white  men. 

RUSSELL,  W.  CLARK.— "The  Yarn  of  Old  Harbor 
Town."  Toronto  :  The  Musson  Book  Company. 
Whether  or  no  the  reader  is  convinced  after  reading 
this  novel  that  it  would  be  possible  for  a  girl  like 
Miss  Lucy  Acton,  the  heroine,  to  marry  Mr.  Walter 
Lawrence,  the  hero,  after  he  had  cheated  her  father 
and  run  after  her,  is  neither  here  nor  there.  The  fact 
is  he  did  do  all  this,  abducted  the  girl  in  one  of  her 
father's  own  ships  and  started  across  the  Atlantic 
with  her.  A  pursuit  followed  and  he  was  captured. 
Then  Lucy  relented. 


MONEY  IN  THE  TABARD  INN    LIBRARY. 

CANADIAN  booksellers  and  stationers  are  offered  a 
splendid  opportunity  to  reap  all  the  advantages 
accruing  from  circulating  libraries,  with  only  a 
small  investment,  by  the  attractive  proposition  of  the 
Tabard  Inn  Library,  affiliated  with  the  Booklovers' 
Library  Company,  of  Canada,  with  head  office  at  59(i 
St.  Catherine  street  west,  Montreal.  A  perusal  of  their 
advertisement  in  this  issue  clearly  .shows  the  advantage- 
ous terms  for  the  first  bookseller  introducing  this  feature 
in  his  town. 

A  25-book  library,  with  which  is  furnished  an  attrac- 
tive bookcase  free,  is  sold  at  $25.  It  is  obvious  that 
even  in  a  small  town  a  membership  of  25  can  soon  be 
gained,  and  each  member  pays  the  bookseller  $1.50  for 
his  first  book,  thus  giving  a  clear  profit  of  50c.  at  the 
start  from  each  member.  The  bookseller  makes  $12.50 
on  securing  his  membership,  and  soon  gets  back  his  or-, 
iginal  investment  from  the  rental,  which  is  left  to  his 
discretion.  In  two  months  the  original  investment  shows 
a  nice  tidy  profit,  and  if  larger  libraries  are  possible  a 
handsome  income  is  assured.  The  revolving  bookcase 
illustrated  in  the  advertisement,  valued  at  $50,  is  given 
free  with  a  two  hundred  book  library,  costing  $175. 

Booksellers  are  aided  in  every  conceivable  way  to 
make  the  investment  a  sure  success  and  the  privilege  of 
exchanging  books  at  a  cost  of  only  5c.  insures  keeping  on 
hand  constantly  bright  new  readable  matter.  In  the 
selection  of  the  original  library  an  extensive  list  of  over 
500  titles  is  afforded.  Circulars  and  full  particulars  may 
be  had  by  writing  the  Canadian  headquarters  at  Mont- 
real, mentioning  The  Bookseller  and  Stationer.  It  is 
obvious  that  a  library  of  this  nature  is  valuable  in  at- 
tracting customers  to  the  store. 

The  present  offer  of  the  Booklovers'  Library  Com- 
pany, of  Canada,  is  made  owing  to  the  many  calls    for 


this  service  in  Canada  as  a  result  of  the  success  of  the 
Tabard  Inn  Library  in  the  United  States.  This  has  de- 
cided them  to  enter  upon  an  active  campaign  in  Canada. 


1906  YEAR  EOOKS. 

ADAM   AND   CHARLES    BLACK,    London,    England, 
have  seen  to  it  that  their  three  valuable  publica- 
tions—"Who's  Who,"  the  "Who's  Who  Year  Book" 
and   "The  Englishwoman's  Year  Book"— should  continue 
to  grow  in  bulk  and  contents,  and  a  glance  at  copies  for 
1906  shows  that  they  are  thoroughly  up  to  date. 

Scarcely  a  day  passes  but  what  some  man  or  woman 
performs  some  act  or  accomplishes  some  work,  which 
claims  for  him  or  her  a  place  amongst  present-day 
celebrities.  All  such  as  these  have  their  names  added  to 
the  ever-increasing  list  of  prominent  persons,  which 
"Who's  Who"  contains.  It  contains  something  over  17,- 
000  condensed  biographies  of  nobilities,  notables,  novel- 
ists, artists,  soldiers  and  celebrities  of  the  day.  Each 
miniature  biography  has  been  carefully  revised  by  the 
subject  of  the  sketch  in  question,  so  that  those  who  re- 
fer to  this  book  can  place  all  confidence  in  the  facts  and 
statements  it  contains.  Such  a  publication  is,  for  many 
reasons,  almost  indispensible  to  professional  men,  and 
business  men  also  should  find  its  information  of  great 
value. 

*  *  * 

The  "Who's  Who  Year  Book,"  which  originally  form- 
ed part  of  "Who's  Who,"  is  the  companion  to  the  latter 
book,  and  is  published  at  Is.  6d.  It  is  composed  of  num- 
erous tables,  which  at  first  formed  the  nucleus  of  the 
book  which  eventually  developed  on  different  lines  into  a 
biographical  annual.  The  "Who's  Who  Year  Book"  con- 
tains numerous  lists  of  societies,  their  official  secre- 
taries, registers,  etc.,  which  it  would  be  difficult  to  ob- 
tain anywhere  else. 

*  *  * 

"The  Englishwoman's  Year  Book,"  which  is  edited 
by  the  organizing  secretary  of  the  National  Union  of 
Women  Workers  of  Great  Britain  and  Ireland,  is  now  in 
its  24th  year,  and  in  its  eighth  in  its  enlarged  and  re- 
modeled form.  Women  workers  of  all  classes  will  find' 
the  large  amount  of  information  it  contains  a  great 
help  to  them  in  their  labors.  All  those  who  are  con- 
nected with  the  social  or  industrial  departments  of 
women's  work  will  find  many  items  of  intelligence  in  this 
volume,  and  their  efforts  will  be  lightened  by  the  posses- 
sion of  such  a  handy  book. 


.The  great  number  and  variety  of  topics  dealt  with  in 
"The  Little  Red  Book,"  as  the  "Daily  Mail"  Year  Book 
is  familiarly  called,  renders  the  task  of  reviewing  it  by 
no  means  an  easy  one.  It  is  one  of  the  most  instructive 
books  published,  and  possesses  the  great  advantage  of 
being  totally  devoid  of  party  feeling  or  bias.  It  presents 
to  its  readers  .the  essential  facts  of  the  main  questions 
of  the  day,  and, an  unvarnished  summary  of  all  the  chief 
events  of  the-  past  year,  leaving  them  to  draw  their  own 
conclusions  from  the  mass  of  information  it  offers  in 
connection  with  each  individual  subject.  Facts  and  fig- 
ures have,  however,  been  carefully  "boiled  down"  and 
rendered  as  comprehensible  to  the  ordinary  intelligence 
as  possible. 

There  probably  is  not  another  book  published  which 
contains  such  a  volume  of  useful  information  in  so  small 
a  space.  The  Year  Book  contains  some  450  pages,  and 
is  published  at  Is.  6d  by  the  Amalgamated  Press,  Lim- 
ited, Carmelite  House,  London,  England.

MAGAZINE  NOTES. 

Beginning  with  the  March  issue,  the  price  of  the 
World  To-Day  has  been  advanced  to  fii'teen  cents  per 
copy,  or  $1.50  for  yearly  subscriptions.  The  trade  price 
is  eleven  cents,  returnable.  This  gives  a  4c.  margin  to 
dealers,  instead  of  only  2ic.  It  has  long  been  matter  of 
wonder  that  the  publishers  could  get  out  such  a  high- 
grade  periodical  as  the  World  To-Day  at  a  dollar  a 
year. 

The  Munsey  publications,  especially  the  new  Scrap 
Book,  are  receiving  considerable  advertising  in  the 
newspaper  press  and  in  the  magazines.  This  is  the  first 
advertising  done  by  the  Munsey  Company  in  twelve 
years.  An  innovation  in  Munsey's  Magazine  is  the  carry- 
ing of  reading  pages  in  the  advertising  section,  so  that 
advertisers  may  be  given  preferred  positions  opposite 
reading  matter. 

Everybody's  for  March  is  a  strong  number,  opening 
with  an  entertaining  character  sketch  of  the  late  Mar- 
shall Field.  Among  other  readable  articles  in  this  issue 
may  be  mentioned  "The  Invisible  World,"  giving  an  ac- 
count of  the  life  and  work  of  spiritualists,  "The  Old- 
Time  Revival,"  and  "Soldiers  of  the  Common  Good." 

The  March  Cosmopolitan  is  chiefly  notable  for  the 
opening  chapters  of  "The  Treason  of  the  Senate,"  in 
which  David  Graham  Phillips  begins  his  attack  on  that 
body.  A  set  of  drawings,  illustrating  an  article  on  "The 
Girl  of  the  Middle  West,"  by  Elbert  Hubbard,  is  an  at- 
tractive feature  of  the  issue.  "Famous  Forgeries"  and 
"The  Logical  Death  of  Sarah  Bernhardt"  are  other  in- 
teresting contents. 

Pearson's  (American)  contains  eight  short  stories  and 
the  opening  chapters  of  a  new  serial,  "The  Plow- 
Woman,"  by  Eleanor  Gates.  It  also  numbers  among  its 
contents  "Historic  Weddings  of  the  White  House," 
"Maryland"  in  the  series  of  the  States,  and  "The 
Stories  of  the  Squaw-Man  and  Peter  Pan." 

A  lengthy  and  instructive  article  on  "Texas  and  the 
Texans"  appears  in  the  current  issue  of  World's  Work. 
Other  contents  are  "The  German  Army,"  "The  Growth 
of  Fletcherism,"  "Growing  Oranges  in  California," 
"Automobiles  for  Everybody,"  "The  Average  Man  and 
his   Money." 

The  most  notable  contribution  to  the  current  issue 
of  the  World  To-Day  is  a  paper  on  the  "Liberal  Policy," 
by  Sir  Henry  Campbell-Bannerman,  the  British  Premier. 
Other  contents  are  "Measuring  the  Earth,"  "The  Girl 
Behind  the  Counter,"  "The  New  Kival  of  the  Steam 
Engine,"  "Commercializing  Amateur  Athletics,"  "De- 
serted Ireland,"  "Birds  that  Nest  in  Colonies,"  etc. 

"The  Story  of  Actaeon,  a  Virginia  Deer,"  is  a  prettily 
illustrated  nature  article  that  opens  the  current  number 
of  St.  Nicholas.  In  "The  Coward  of  the  Eleven," 
Ralph  D.  Paine  tells  a  good  football  story.  There  are 
instalments  of  the  three  serial  features  now  running  in 
St.  Nicholas,  verses,  stories  and  pictures,  all  of  interest 
to  the  young  folk. 

the  contents  of  the  March  Review  of  Reviews  are,  as. 
usual,  lengthy  and  varied.     Some  of  the  more  attractive 


titles  are  "The  late  King  of  Denmark,"  "A  Park  of 
Patriotism,"  "The  Imperial  Chinese  Special  Mission," 
"What  England  can  Teach  us  in  Athletics,"  "The  Child- 
ren's Court  in  American  City  Life,"  "Three  Unarmed 
Men  Cross  the  Sahara,"  "Some  Methods  of  Regulating 
Immigration." 

Chambers's  Journal  is,  as  usual,  replete  with  good 
things.  From  the  March  table  of  contents  the  following 
interesting  titles  may  be  picked,  "Chinese  Cities,"  "A 
Veritable  Magnum  Opus,"  "Father  Rhine,"  "Domestic 
Service,"  "American  Gold  Prospectors,"  "A  Winter 
Shore,"  "English  Public  School  Education  from  a  Col- 
onial Point  of  View,"  "Bishops  as  Legislators,"  "Relics 
of  the  Inquisition,"  "Persian  Irrigation  Channels." 

Among  the  features  promised  for  the  April  issue  of 
the  Atlantic  Monthly  are  "Making  Education  Hit  the 
Mark,"  "Criminal  Law  Reform,"  "The  Testimony  of 
Biology  to  Religion,"  "Railroad  Securities  as  Invest- 
ments," and  "The  Re-shaping  of  the  Far  East." 

The  novelette  in  the  April  Lippincott's  will  be  "The 
Battle  of  the  Fools,"  by  Samuel  Merwin.  The  story 
deals  with  a  struggle  between  a  big  railroad  and  a  man. 
The  number  will  be  out  on  March  21. 

For  their  next  issue  the  publishers  of  Appleton's 
Booklover's  Magazine  promise  articles  on  "Tom  John- 
son," by  D.  G.  Phillips;  "The  Modern  Public  Library," 
"The  Ancient  American  Mystery,"  "The  Looting  of 
Alaska,"  poems  by  Bliss  Carman  and  Florence  Wilkin- 
son, and  stories  by  Edith  Wharton  and  others. 

The  xVrena  for  April  will  contain  "Federal  Regula- 
tion of  Railroad  Rates,"  "Main  Currents  of  Thought  in 
the  Nineteenth  Century,"  "The  Single  Tax,"  "Prelimin- 
ary Strikes  and  the  Eight-Hour  Struggle,"  "The  Color 
Line  in  New  Jersey,"  "A  Calm  View  of  the  Divorce 
Question,"   "America  in  the  Phillipines." 

The  American  Magazine  for  April  will  contain,  in 
addition  to  a  gooly  supply  of  fiction,  "Light  :  The 
Great  Civilizer,"  "Speculating  in  Manslaughter,"  "From 
YerkeS  to  Dunne,"  the  story  of  Chicago  traction  control 
and  a  series  of  individual  portraits  of  the  justices  of  the 
U.   S.   Supreme  Court. 

The  first  of  the  important  series  of  "Railways  of  the 
Future"  will  appear  in  the  April  Scribner's  and  will  deal 
with  "The  Pan-American  Railway."  Ernest  Thompson 
Seton  will  describe  "The  Caribou  and  his  Kindred." 
"The  Waters  of  Venice"  will  be  a  beautifully  illustrated 
article  by  Arthur  Symons,  while  Sir  Francis  Seymour 
Hadden's  etchings  will  be  the  subject  of  a  choice  article. 

The  romantic  development  of  steel  and  iron  in  Am- 
erica and  incidentally  the  story  of  a  thousand  million- 
aires and  the  history  of  the  billion-dollar  steel  trust  will 
begin  in  the'  April  issue  of  Munsey's  Magazine  and  will 
extend  through  twelve  issues.  It  will  be  lavishly  illus- 
trated. The  same  number  will  contain  "The  Irish  in 
America"  in  the  series  of  race  articles. 

Rudyard  Kipling's  new  serial,  "Robin  Goodfellow, 
His  Friends,"  will  begin  in  the  May  number  of  Mc- 
Clure's  Magazine.  It  is  the  first  serial  from  Mr.  Kip- 
ling's pen  to  appear  since  "Kim"  was  published  in  the 
.  same  magazine  five  years  ago.

Bookseller  and  Stationer 


Two  features     in     fiction   will   be  found   in   the  April 
Pall  Mall.     Mr.  Lawrence  Mott  will  contribute  "A  Day's 
Work  with  the  Mounted  Police,"   and  Mr.   Cutcliffe  Hyne 
will  introduce  Commander    McTurk  in  a  new  and  thrill 
ing  situation  in  a  story  entitled  "Taking  Water." 

A  remarkable  human  document  will  appear  in  print 
for  the  first  time  in  the  April  Century.  It  is  a  narrative 
of  the  events  during  and  after  the  Battle  of  Waterloo, 
written  by  Lady  de  Lancey,  wife  of  Colonel  de  Lancey 
of  Wellington's  staff.  There  will  also  be  published  let- 
ters from  Sir  Walter  Scott  and  Charles  Dickens,  written 
in  admiration  of  the  narrative.  Not  the  least  interest- 
ing feature  of  the  story  is  the  light  it  throws  upon  the 
primitive  conditions  of  Wellington's  surgical  service. 

The  publication  of  the  Harmsworth  Self-Educator 
goes  steadily  forward.  Number  6  appeared  early  this 
month.  It  is  not  too  much, to  say  that  this  great  work 
has  been  a  pronounced  success  in  Canada  and  many 
earnest  people  are  deriving  great  benefit  from  it.  Can- 
adian dealers  are  also  finding  it  a  good  proposition  to 
handle.  The  bright  red  cover  and  the  advertising  devices 
which  have  been  supplied  from  the  head  office  render  dis- 
play easy.

Circulating  Libraries  for  Sale 

THERE  are  now  in  circulation  in  the  United  States  and  Canada  fully  a  million 
Tabard  Inn  books.  People  carry  them  around  with  them  everywhere  and 
exchange  them  wherever  they  tinda  branch  Tabard  Inn  Library.  The  immense 
number  of  these  books  in  circulation  has  created  a  growing  demand  among  store- 
keepers   for   branch    libraries.     To  meet  this  demand  we  are  selling  Tabard  Inn 

.  Libraries  outright,  giving  with  each  sale  the  privilege 
1  of  exchanging  all  tne  books  in  bulk  for  other  books 
?  as  often  as  the  merchant  chooses  and  at  very  small 
expense.  A  25- book  library  costs  $2500;  a  50- 
book  library  costs  $45  00;  a  75-book  library  costs 
$62.50;  a  100-book  library  costs  $85.00.  With  each 
library  purchased  we  give  a  handsome  Tabard  Inn 
Book  Case  FREE. 

We  give  you  a  Book  List  of  500  Titles  to  choose 
from.  ¥ou  make  your  own  selection  of  Books  and 
we  ship  these  Books  and  the  Book  Case  by  freight 
immediately  upon  receipt  of  your  order.  We  sup- 
ply full  directions  as  to  the  best  method  of  managing 
the  Library,  not  only  to  attract  customers  to  your 
store  but  to-  make  a  good  profit  for  yourself  out  of 
the  Library  business.  There  is  no  way  in  which  you 
can  invest  One  Hundred  Dollars  and  get  from  it  such 
large  daily  cash  returns. 

How  to  Make  Money  Operating  a  Library 

The  usual  charge  for  exchanging  a  Tabard  Inn 
Library  book  is  Five  Cents  for  each  exchange.  A 
few  Libraries  charge  Ten  Cents  ;  others  charge  a 
cent  a  day  or  two  cents  a  day,  or  five  cents  a  week 
or  ten  cents  a  week.  When  you  purchase  your 
Library  outright  you  have  the  privilege  of  making 
whatever  local  terms  with  your  members  that  you 
choose.  The  labels  in  the  Books  are  adapted  to  any 
of  the  above-mentioned  prices.  One  Hundred 
Books  rented  at  Two  Cents  a  day  will  bring  you 
$50.00  a  month,  or  at  One  Cent  a  day,  $25.00  a 
month.  You  get  your  original  investment  back  in  a 
month  or  two.  A  200-Book  Library  will  bring  you  a  handsome  income.  But  the 
storekeeper  must  not  overlook  the  fact  that  the  Library  will  attract  custom  to  his 
store.  Some  merchants  find  the  income  from  this  source  more  valuable  than  the 
Library  fees  that  are  charged.  There  is  nothing  so  pleasing  in  a  shop  as  a  display 
of  Beautiful  Books. 

We  Exchange  Libraries.  You  can  send  back  Library  Books  as  often  as  you 
like,  and  we  shall  exchange  them  for  others  at  a  cost  to  you  of  only  Five  Cents 
per  volume,  you  to  pay  the  carriage  both  ways.  In  this  way  you  can  keep  your 
library  fresh  and  attractive  all  the  time  and  at  very  small  expense  Write  for

books." 


THE  PICTURE  POST  CARD. 

WE  are  inclined  to  believe  that  the  picture  post  card 
has  come  to  stay.  While  it  may  never  again  be 
the  rage  it  is  at  present,  yet  like  the  bicycle  it  has  a 
utility,  which  will  ever  ensure  a  demand  in  years  to 
come.  In  simple  phrase  it  will  pass  from  the  novelty 
stage  to  the  staple  stage. 

No  doubt  when  the  ordinary  post  card  was  introduc- 
ed to  the  astonished  public  years  ago  it  aroused  quite  as 
much  interest  as  the  picture  post  card  did  a  few  years 
back.  And  yet  the  ordinary  post  card  is  quite  a  com- 
mon and  useful  commodity  to-day. 

The  function  which  the  picture  post  card  will  fill  in 
years  to  come  will  be  identical  with  that  of  the  photo- 
graph. The  traveler  must  bring  home  with  him  pictures 
of  the  scenes  he  has  visited.  A  few  years  ago  the  fav- 
orite plan  was  to  purchase  photographs.  Then  came  the 
camera,  and  to-day  no  traveler  with  any  pretensions  to 
a  complete  outfit  travels  without  his  or  her  kodak.  But 
an  improvement  on  both  these  plans  is  the  picture  post 
card.  A  good  post  card  has  all  the  merits  of  a  photo- 
graph. It  is  ridiculously  cheap  and  a  traveler  can  pur- 
chase dozens  of  cards  at  as  small  a  cost  as  he  could 
make  a  single  print  himself. 

As  long  as  people  travel  and  as  long  as  there  is 
curiosity  to  see  different  parts  of  the  world,  so  long 
will   there  be  a  demand  for   the   picture  post  card. 


COURTESY  DEMANDED. 

RECENTLY  a  valued  reader  of  Bookseller  and  Sta- 
tioner asked  us  why  we  didn't  teach,  some  lessons 
in  courtesy  to  bookkeepers  and  other  subordinate  officers 
of  wholesale  firms.  It  had  been  his  experience  that  these 
persons  were  in  several  instances  abusing  their  authority 
and  behaving  in  a  careless  and  discourteous  manner  to 
customers. 

We  wonder  if  this  will  not  account  for  breaks  which 
have  occurred  in  the  relationships  between  some  jobbers 
and  their  old  customers — breaks  for  which  the  former 
have  long  sought  to  discover  the  cause. 

If  we  are  to  believe  our  correspondent  there  is  a 
great  deal  of  discourtesy  evinced  in  letters  coming  from 
certain  Canadian  wholesale  houses.  Simple  questions 
are  answered  curtly  or  not  at  all;  when  explanations  are 
requested  why  such  and  such  a  thing  was  not  done,  the 
reply  comes  couched  in  autocratic  terms.  Of  course 
these  letters  were  not  written  by  the  principals,  nor  were 
they  dictated  by  salesmen.  Certainly  the  travelers  had 
nothing  to  do  with  them.  They  must  have  come  from 
employes  not  directly  connected  with  the  sales  depart- 
ment. Perhaps  if  their  authors  realized  how  they  were 
undoing  the  hard  work  of  salesmen  and  travelers,  they 
would  not  allow  their  impatience  and  their  superior  airs 
to  express  themselves  in  their  correspondence. 


STREET  CAR  ADVERTISING. 

PUBLICITY  is  rapidly  becoming  an  essential  factor  in 
the  upbuilding  of  a  successful  retail  business.  Mer- 
chants are  advertising  in  many  ways  with  varying  suc- 
cess. The  local  newspapers  are  receiving  their  share  of 
patronage;  circulars,  are  being  distributed;  posters  are  be- 
ing used  to  reach  the  public.  These  different  means  of 
attaining  the  same  end  have  been  in  vogue  for  many 
years.  Within  the  past  decade,  however,  a  new  and 
profitable  advertising  medium  has  been  brought  before 
the  notice  of  the  progressive  retail  merchant. 

A  better  means  of  placing  the  name  of  an  advertiser 
and  his  goods  before  the  general  public  it  is  hard  to 
find.  Advertising  apace  in  street  cars  is  not  very  ex- 
pensive when  the  benefit  derived  from  it  is  considered. 
A  clever,  catchy  advertisement  on  lithographed  paper, 
when  placed  in  street  car  advertising  space,  is  bound  to 
bring  results.  It  will  be  read  by  a  greater  number  of 
persons  than  would  an  ad  in  a  newspaper,  because  when 
using  the  cars  the  public  is  very  easily  interested.  This 
is  the  judicious  advertiser's  opportunity.  If  he  cannot 
interest  a  man  or  woman  now.  he  can  never  do  anything 
with  them.  An  attractive  advertisement  will  catch  the 
eye  now  if  ever  it  will.  But  do  not  attempt  to  adver- 
tise your  whole  stock.  Take  a  certain  line  and  push  if 
for  all  it  is  worth. 

As  stated  before,  the  cost  is  comparatively  small. 
Most  large  manufacturing  houses  are  only  too  glad  to 
supply  beautiful  lithographed  cards  free  of  all  cost,  so 
that  the  retailer's  expense  really  amounts  to  nothing 
more  than  the  space  in  the  car.  and  when  the  good  de- 
rived from  the  advertisement  is  considered  this  is  small 
indeed.

Calendars! 

If  "good  wine  needs  no  bush" 
then  there's  little  need  for  us  to  say 
much  about  our  Calendars. 

You  know  they  were  the  best  line 

on  the  Canadian  counters  last  season 
and  when  we  mention  that  we  have 
15  designs  of  "Ten  Centers"  and  12 
designs  of  "Five  Centers"  you  will  note 
we  are  doing  better  than  before. 


The  effect  of  color  and  design  is 
beautiful.  Half-tone  blocks  don't  do 
them  justice.  Yon  need  to  see  onr 
samples. 

Already  we  have  evidence  of  an  enormous 
increase  in  the  demand  forthe  comingseason's 
lines,  and  we  are  only  commencing  to  show 
samples. 

How  much  will  you  need  to  increase  your 
order  this  year? 

Think  it  over  against  the  time  our  repre- 
sentatives call  on  you  and  be  ready  for  them.

HUMOR  IN  PICTORIAL  CARDS, 

ILLER    &    LANG,    Glasgow,    Scotland,    whose     an- 
nouncement    appears     elsewhere  in   this  issue     of 
Bookseller  and   Stationer,   are  fine   art  publishers 
on  a  large  scale,  and  their  "National  Series"  of  pictorial 
cards   have   secured   a     well-merited   reputation   on     both 
sides  of  the  Atlantic. 

One  particular  line,  which  deserves  special  mention, 
is  their  various  sets  of  humorous  cards.  The  publishers 
long  ago  realized   that  productions  of   this  kind,   appeal- 


ETURNED 


from  the  famous  Scottish  poet,  are  perhaps  even  more 
laughable.  There  are  many  other  sets  of  a  similar  na- 
ture, but  to  repeat  them  all  would  require  more  space 
than  is  at  our  disposal.  The  "Telephone"  and  "Devil" 
cards  merit  special  mention. 

Apart  from  this  range  of  comics,  Bookseller  and 
Stationer  has  received  from  Miller  &  Lang,  Limited, 
three  other  packets,  representing  "Scottish  Lochs," 
"Moonlight  Studies,"  and  "The  Manual  Alphabet."  The 
first  two  are  charming  reproductions  of  landscape  and 
seascape  scenes,  whilst  the  third  represents  all  the  let- 
ters of  the  alphabet  for  deaf  and  dumb  persons. 

It  might  be  mentioned  that  all  the  above  cards  are 
produced  in  colors,  the  workmanship  being  entirely  of 
British  origin.  Miller  &  Lang,  Limited,  will  be  pleased 
to  send  catalogues  of  their  latest  lines  to  those  men- 
tioning Bookseller   and   Stationer. 


IMPORTED  CARDS. 

AHOLZMAN,  the  very  funny  post  card  man,  has 
•  taken  a  new  departure  in  the  post  card  business, 
and  is  now  advertising  an  addition  to' "his  line 
of  a  large  assortment  of  imported  cards.  His  imported 
Easter  cards  are  attracting  attention  everywhere,  as  the 
assortment  is  comprised  of  every  subject  suggested  by 
the  Easter  season — rabbits,  chickens,  eggs,  and  artisti- 
cally arranged  flower  sprays  ornament  the  different 
cards,  and  are  unique  enough  to  charm  the  pennies  from 
any  pocket.  For  the  convenience  of  purchasers  these 
cards  are  offered  in  an  assortment  of  500  for  $12.50,  and 
a  display  stand  is  given  away  with  the  first  order,  thus 
enabling  the  dealer  to  spread  out  the  entire  line  for  in- 
spection. 

In,' art  subject  post  cards  but  little  of  value  has  been 
shown  the  American  purchaser,  but  the  importation  of 
copies  of  Old  World  scenes,  done  in  steel  engraving 
effects;  paintings  in  oilio  (miniature  oil  paintings)  and 
the  soft  sepia  toned  cards,  will  induce  many  a  passer-by 
to  examine  and  yield  to  the  desire  to  possess  these  ar- 
tistic  little  gems. 

In  putting  up  this  line  for  the  post  card  dealer 
thought  has  been  given  to  the  demand  for  a  higher  grade 
of  card  and  the  assortment  will  please  the  eye  and 
gratify  the  artistic  taste,  as  well  as  furnish  almost  every 
subject  conceivable  and  every  style  of  work  knownto  the 
post  card  designer. 

1,000  of  these  imported  cards  for  $15  brings  the 
price  so  low  no  one  would  hesitate  to  purchase  all  they 
could  use  and  still  call  for  more. 


ing,  as  they  do,  to  the  majority  "1  the  people,  form  ;i 
most  profitable  side  of  the  post  card  business,  and  con- 
sequently they  have  devoted  considerable  attention  to 
their  numerous  series  of  humorous  productions.  men- 
tion of  the  titles  of  some  of  them  will  give  sufficient  idea 
of  the  subjects.  Packet  No.  340  is  an  amusing  set  of 
"Canoodling;"  cards;  No.  33b  contains  an  "Autograph" 
set  Nos.  .'5.37  and  338,  "Pilgrims  of  the  Night"  and 
"Jack  Ashore,"  respectively.  The  "Football"  and  "Con 
nn'drum"  sets  are  most  amusing:,  whilst  the  "Burns" 
series,    which      are     humorous    illustrations   of   quotations 


THE  "STAR"  SERIES. 

FRANKEL   &   CO..   whose  announcement   appears     else-

DAVIDSON  SERIES.  The  excellence  of  the  David- 
son cards  has  lone-  been  commented  on  bv  the  Canadian 
trade.  They  are  beautifullv  executed  both  from  an  artistic 
and  a  tvpographical  point  of  view.  The  majoritv  are 
comics,  designed  by  such  artists  as  Tom  Brown  Dudlev

adapted  from  photographs  sent  in  by  customers.  The  fol-

certainly  is  a  high  commendation  of  these  cards  :  "I  am 
sending  you  some  more  pictures  for  1,000  each  post  cards 
the  same  print  as  those  sent  before,  which  I  am  delimited

popular  number  being  2688,  Miss  Edna  May,  the  London 
favorite,  who  has  recently  toured  Canada.  There  is  a  be- 
wildering line  of  children,  cats  and  animals  in  pretty  pos- 
ings  and  quaint  groupings.  A  double  panel  card  of  the 
King  of  Spain  and  Princess  Ena  is  one  of  the  successes 
of  the  moment.  The  actress  cards  are  as  beautiful  as  one 
could  wish  and  the  new  coloring  in  reds  and  greens  is  very 
striking.     Many  are  also  touched  with  gilt.

By  actual  count,  Bookseller  and  Stationer's  repre- 
sentative reckoned  that  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited, 
have  nearly  two  hundred  different  picture  post  card  al- 
bums on  show  among  their  import  samples.  These  em- 
brace all  shapes,  sizes  and  designs.  The  trade  can  well 
understand  that  in  such  a  multitude  of  numbers,  every 
want  can  be  supplied. 

THE  MACFARLANE  LINE. 

WG.  MACFARLANE,  72  Bay  street,  Toronto,  and 
.  15  Coal  &  Iron  Exchange,  Buffalo,  N.Y.,  reports 
a  very  active  demand  for  contract  editions  of 
post  cards  from  customers'  own  photos.  Dealers  who 
have  not  placed  their  orders  for  their  Summer  editions 
should  do  so  at  once  if  they  desire  to  get  their  cards  in 
time  for  Summer  trade.  It  takes  from  eight  to  thirteen 
weeks  to  get  out  editions  of  cards  ;  collotype  and  photo- 
gloss  requiring  eight  weeks,  hand-colored  collotype  and 
chromotype  and  naturotype  requiring  ten  weeks  and  auto- 
chromc  requiring  three  months.  This  firm  have  done  tre- 
mendous business  in  contract  editions  as  they  offer  a 
variety  of  eleven  styles  to  select  from  and  are  in  a  posi- 
tion to  give  the  lowest  quotations.  They  have  booked  a 
very  large  business  in  collotype,  chromotype,  autochrome 
and  photo-gloss. 

This  firm's  six  travelers  are  now  showing  a  number 
of  new  lines  of  stock  cards.  One  of  these  is  the  Musee 
line  of  reproductions  of  the  world's  most  famous  paint- 
ings. The  subjects  embrace  fifty  or  more  numbers,  in- 
cluding the  finest  things  in  sacred  and  secular  art,  includ- 
ing the  most  celebrated  Madonnas  and  classics.  This  line 
retails  at  10c.  The  demand  for  this  line  all  over  the 
world  has  been  so  great  that  it  has  been  found  difficult 
to  fill  orders.  It  is  the  acme  of  perfection  in  post  card 
publishing. 

In  Easter  cards  a  good  assortment  of  designs  is  shown 
in  the  celebrated  Stewart  &1  Woolf  line.  They  offer  eight 
different  sets  with  six  separate  subjects  in  each  set.  They 
also  have  a  very  fine  line  of  embossed  and  air  brush  tint- 
ed Easter  eggs  and  lilies. 

The  firm  now  are  tinselling  cards  and  any  cards  cus- 
tomers desire,  either  view  or  fancy  cards,  can  be  tinselled 
and  inscribed  with  Easter  or  birthday  greetings. 

Mr.  MacFarlane  has  a  line  of  comic  post  cards  of  his 
own  publication  ;  the  humor  of  this  line  is  in  good  taste 
and  the  line  is  meeting  with  general  acceptance.

the  finest  architecture  of  the  chief  centres  and  also  the 
leading  scenic  regions  of  Canada.  The  execution  is  in 
collotype,  chromotype,  autochrome,  photo-gloss  and  na- 
turotype. 

One  of  the  strongest  features  of  the  line  will  be  a 
series  of  about  one  hundred  subjects  reproduced  from  oil 
paintings  illustrating  western  life,  also  the  Rockies,  In- 
dians, and  the  architectural  and  historical  features  of  the 
leading  cities.  These  will  represent  the  best  in  view  post 
card  work  and  will  be  a  strong  selling  line. 


T 


POINTS  ABOUT  SOUVENIR  POST  CARDS. 

'HE  AMERICAN  NEWS  COMPANY  offer  the  trade, 
cards.  Of  the  miscellaneous  cards,  such  as  comic, 
in  view  cards,  three  different  styles  of  souvenir  post 
leather,  novelty,  and  fancy  post  cards,  they  have  an  end- 
less variety.  They  make  a  specialty  of  always  having  an 
elaborate  edition  of  cards  appropriate  for  each  particular 
season.  For  instance,  now  Easter  cards  are  to  the  front. 
Their  line  of  these  cards  is  very  complete.  These  cards 
are  put  up  principally  in   sets.     One  set  consists  of    six 


^yt 


I  CAUCHT  A  STIUNC  0T  SUCKEHl 


This  firm's  collection  of  Canadian  subjects  is  very 
large.  New  additions  are  made  to  this  line  every  week, 
with  the  expectation  of  making  it  the  strongest  line  in 
Canada  when  the  Summer  trade  begins  in  active  fashion. 
The  stock  lines  comprise  particularly  subjects  illustrating 


different  cards,  beautifully  illuminated  in  many  colors.  A 
unique  feature  about  these  cards  is  that  they  are  trans- 
parent when  they  are  held  to  the  light.  Easter  eggs,  rab- 
bits, chickens,  and  many  other  beautiful  symbols  of  the 
joyous  season  show  up  on  these  cards  in  illuminated  form. 
These  cards  retail  at  5  cents,  with  a  very  liberal  margin 
of  profit  to  the  trade.  Another  set  consists  of  ten  very 
attractive  subjects  typical  of  the  season,  all  different. 
These  cards  are  embossed  and  printed  in  many  colors,  and 
can  be  retailed  as  low  as  two  for  5  cents,  and  still  afford 
the  dealer  a  good  profit.  Their  specialty  is  publishing 
cards  for  the  trade  over  the  dealer's  own  imprint  from 
photographs  supplied  by   the  dealer. 

The  highest  type  of  post  card  perfection  is  exemplified 
in  their  poly-chrome,  or  highest  grade  colored  cards.  These 
are  printed  in  twelve  colors,  and  the' intermediate  shades 
thereby  obtained  produce  a  picture  which  can  only  be  ex- 
celled by  an  oil  painting.  Owing  to  the  great  skill  neces- 
sary to  produce  the  poly-chrome  cards,  it  is  absolutely 
necessary  that  they  be  published  in  immense  editions,  in 
order  to  bring  their  cost  down  to  the  lowest  possible 
figure. 

The  company  have  also  another  grade  of  colored  cards, 
the  litho-chrome  quality,  which  is  surpassed  only  by  the 
v/r»*    Hwiy-chrome  cards. 

Their  litho-chrome  cards  are  claimed  to  be  superior  to 
ny  other  line  on  the  market,  and  differ  onlv  from  the 
poly-chrome  cards  in  that  only  eight  colors  are  used,  but 
even  this  gives  most  beautiful  results.  The  special  advan- 
tage of  the  litho-chrome  cards  is  that  they  can  be  pub- 
lished in  smaller  editions. 

Their  Excelsior  (artistic  black  and  white)  cards  are 
in  a  class  by  themselves.  These  cards  are  produced  by 
the  gelatine  process,  being  actual  reproductions  from  orig- 
inal photographs,  and  the  results  achieved  are  a  decided 
improvement   on   the  photographs   themselves. 

The  unsolicited  testimonials  which  the  American  News 
Company  are  constantly  receiving  from  satisfied  custom- 
ers would  fill  a  large  volume,  the  best  dealers  in  the 
trade  taking  the  trouble  to  write  in  words  of  the  highest 
praise. 

To  introduce  their  Improved  Paragon  Revolving-  Post 
Card  Display  Stand  the  company  are  giving  a  very  valua-

ble  and  desirable  assortment  of  cards  as  a  premium  with 
each  stand,  charging  only  for  the  stand,  and  making  no 
charge  for  the  post  cards.  This  makes  it  easy  for  every 
dealer  to  start  in  the  post  card  business  at  once,  at  little 
expense.  The  responses  they  have  so  far  received  to  their 
previous  advertisements  of  this  stand  have  kept  them 
busy  working  night  and  day  to  fill  their  orders. 

A  LINE  TO  CONJURE  WITH. 

DAVIDSON  BROS.'  (London,  Eng.)  showroom  is 
looking  more  than  usually  bright  with  its  display 
of  calendars  for  1906-07.  These  5  and  10  cent 
goods  have  had  a  remarkable  run  during  the  past  season 
and  the  new  designs  show  a  distinct  improvement  on  those 
that  preceded  them.  The  list  of  numbers  in  both  lines 
has  been  increased,  so  there  is  a  greater  variety  than 
ever  to  choose  from.  A  noticeably  strong  design  in  the 
5-cent  series  is  No.  10,  "Basket  of  Flowers,"  as  shown  in 
the  advertisement.  The  10-eent  line  is  well  represented 
by  No.  31,  "Fairy  Bells." 


... 


In  humorous  post  cards  there  is  a  splendid  showing  of 
new  designs  by  Tom  Browne,  R.I.  and  R.B.A.  This  is  a 
name  to  conjure  with,  for  no  English  artist  equals  "Tom 
B."  in  hitting  off  the  humorous  aspects  of  everyday  life. 
"Spring  Cleaning,"  "Seaside  Comforts,"  "Billiards  Made 
Easy,"  and  others  are  represented  in  sets  of  six  cards 
each.  These  are  only  a  few  titles  out  of  the  series  of 
twelve,  all  by  the  same  artist,  just  issued.  They  have 
more  color  and  a  better  finish  than  the  former  "Tom 
Brow  lie's,"  and  this  heightens  the  eflect  very  consider- 
ably. Many  new  models  are  noticeable  in  the  series  of 
actresses  and  stage  beauties.  These  are  all  real  photo- 
graphs done  in  plain  glossy,  colored  glossy  or  color  and 
jewelled  effect.  A  graceful  specimen  is  shown  herewith. 
(Mrs.  Camille  Clifford.) 

NEW  FRAMES  SHOWN. 

To  their  series  of  fifteen  frames  for  framing  picture 
post,  cards,  Warwick  Bros.  &  Butter,  Limited,  have  added 
a   new   series   with   embossed   relief   effect,    that   are   very 


handsome.  Now  that  so  many  prettv  cards  are  shown 
which  are  well  worth  possessing,  these  frames  come  in 
very  useful. 

THE  GAGE  LINES  OF  CARDS. 

W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.  report  that  the  sale  for  picture  post 
(aids    is   on   the   increase.    These   goods   are  certainly   one 


jK.    BBTJRNED

4=r 


of  the  best  selling  and  most  profitable  lines  ever  handled 
by  the  stationery  trade  and  have  proved  a  great  money- 
maker. 

The  dealers  in  the  small  towns  and  villages  all  over 
Canada  are  placing  orders  for  cards  with  local  views  so 
as  to  keep  up  with  the  demand.  Cage  &  Co.  show  a  very 
tasty  line  of  embossed  designs  adapted  for  local  views, 
some  of  which   are  illustrated  herewith. 

These  cards  they  manufacture  to  special  order  in  quan- 
tises of  250  of  a  view  and  upwards,  and  can  supply  them 
in   ten  days  after  receipt  of  the  photos. 

W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.  are  having  a  large  and  increasing 
sale  for  their  colored  picture  post  cards.  These  are  of  the 
highest  class  of  workmanship  and  finish,  and  the  firm  car- 
ries in  stock  the  best  selling  views  of  the  leading  Cana- 
dian points,  covering  Quebec,  Montreal,  Ottawa.  St.  Law- 
rence River,  Toronto,  Winnipeg,  western  views,  and  Brit- 
ish Columbia  views.  As  well  as  the  above  stock  lines 
they  supply  local  views  of  their  colored  postals  to  order 
in  quantities  of  one  thousand  and  upwards.  All  the 
dealer  requires  to  do  is  to  furnish  photos  of  the  views 
wanted. 


SECTIONAL  HANGERS. 

A  useful  sectional  hanger  for  storing  and  displaying 
cards  is  shown  by  Warwick  Bros.  &  Butter,  Limited.  The 
complete  hanger  contains  ten  sections,  each  of  which  will 
hold  fifty  cards.  The  outside  card  is  fully  displayed  and 
thus  ten  different  cards  can  be  shown.  At  45  cents  for 
the  set  of  ten  sections,  the  hanger  very  soon  pays  for 
itself.

CALENDARS    FOR  1907. 

The  Brown  Brothers,  Limited,  expect  boon  to  be 
showing  their  1907  samples  of  Woodbury  E.  Hunt's  calen- 
dars, pictures,  etc.  This  company  have  the  exclusive  con- 
trol of  this  line  for  Canada,  and  have  built  up  a  very 
large  trade  Eor  them  in  this  market  purely  on  their  mer- 
its. The  trade  do  no1  need  any  description  of  these  goods, 
as  the  dealers  are  well  aware  they  are  in  a  class  by 
themselves,  notwithstanding  the  many  attempts  at  imita- 
1  ion. 

The  Brown  Brothers  state  that  in  past  seasons  they 
have  found  that-  a  great  many  of  their  calendars  have  been 
sent  out  as  souvenirs,  so  that  this  season  they  lave  in- 
troduced a  new  idea  which  will  make  this  line  more  than 
ever  popular  for  sending  to  friends  across  the  seas.  It 
was  not  learned  just  what  the  new  departure  is,  as  the 
Brown  Brothers  are  now  preparing  a  special  circular 
which  will  describe  it  in  a  practical  way.  These  will  be 
mailed  to  the  trade  shortly.

TUCK  INVADES  CANADA. 

i.\   this  issue  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer  will  be  found 
a  most  important  announcement  that  will  arouse  con- 
siderable interest     in    the  trade.     It  is  to   the  effect 
that  the  great  English     house     of  Raphael  Tuck  &  Sons 
Company,    Limited,      are   about  to    establish   a   branch    in 
the  Dominion. 

No  more  flattering  evidence  of  their  appreciation  of 
the  practically  unlimited  possibilities  of  the  Canadian 
market  could  well  be  given.  Booksellers  and  stationers 
throughout  the  Dominion  will  hail  with  pleasure  the  fact 
that  "Tuck"   is  to  be  domiciled  among  them. 

So  well  and  so  widely  known  are  the  products  of  this 
concern  that  it  is  scarcely  necessary  to  attempt  adula- 
tion. It  may  be  mentioned,  however,  that  their  lines  for 
the  season  of  1906-7  exhibit  the  usual  marked  improve 
ment  over  previous  efforts.  An  endless  profusion  .  of 
Christmas  cards,  calendars,  toy  books,  juveniles  and 
giff    books,      photogravures,     etc.,      will   he   exhibited    by 


their  travelers.  In  this  connection  it  may  be  stated 
that  the  Raphael  Tuck  &  Sons  Co.,  Limited,  were  the 
pioneers  of  the  post  card  business  in  the  United  King- 
dom, and  their  collection  of  publications  of  this  class 
embraces,  in  addition  to  a  large  variety  of  miscellane- 
ous subjects,  historical,  interesting  and  educative  views 
of  almost  every  important  spot  in  the  old  world  and  the 
new. 

Bookseller  and  Stationer  extends  a  warm  greeting  to 
the  Tuck  Company  on  behalf  of  the  Canadian  trade. 


STATIONERY  NOTES. 

Buntin,  Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited,  Hamilton,  are  show- 
ing a  decidedly  up-to-date  new  line  of  papeteries  to  retail 
at  popular  prices. 

Writing  tablets  with  covers  for  you  only  should  in- 
terest you.  Write  to  Buntin,  Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited, 
Hamilton,  for  full  particulars  regarding  this. 

Buntin,  Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited,  Hamilton,  are  adver- 
tising ink  on  the  back  cover  of  this  number.  Their  stock 
is  complete,  and  stationers  ordering  might  bear  them  in 
mind. 

An  exceptionally  large  line  of  mat  and  mounting 
boards  is  carried  in  stock  by  Buntin,  Gillies  &  Co., 
Limited,  Hamilton.  Their  assortment  comprises  light, 
medium  and  heavy  weights  in  all  the  best  colors. 

Although  W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.  have  moved  their  ware- 
house to  their  factory  building,  82-94  Spadina  avenue, 
Toronto,  they  are  still,  for  the  convenience  of  their  cus- 
tomers, keeping  their  sample  room  at  the  old  stand,  54 
Front  street  west.  The  sample  room  is  in  charge  of  Mr. 
Chas.  J.  Campbell,  who  will  be  glad  to  see  any  of  the 
trade  when  visiting  the  city  and  give  them  personal  at- 
tention. 

With  the  coming  of  Spring  there  arises  a  demand  for 
flags  for  outdoor  celebrations  of  all  sorts.  The  Copp. 
Clark  Co.,  Limited,  have  a  splendid  range  of  the  best 
cotton  flags,  including  Dominion  Ensign,  Union  Jack, 
Stars  and  Stripes  and  French  Tri-Color.  The  material 
used  is  a  strong,  heavy  cotton  and  the  designs  are  litho- 
graphed, not  printed,  and  so  will  withstand  the  weather. 
They  come  mounted  on  nicely-finished  split  sticks.  It 
might  be  noted  that  the  Dominion  Ensign  has  been  pro- 
nounced authoritatively  correct  by  the  Government 

The  series  of  loose  leaf  books,  styles  "The  Simplex," 
published  by  W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.,  Toronto,  are  having  a 
large  and  steadily  increasing  sale.  This  firm  reports 
receiving  within  the  last  few  days  some  large  and  very 
gratifying  orders  for  these  goods,  which  goes  to  show 
they  are  making  what  the  trade  require  at  the  right 
prices.  We  might  state  for  the  information  of  the  retail 
stationers  and  printers  that  Gage  &  Co.  are  selling  their 
loose  leaf  goods  through  the  regular  dealers  and  not  di- 
rect to  consumers,  as  has  been  the  custom.  Catalogues, 
samples  and  full  particulars  will  be  gladly  furnished  upon 
request. 


A  TREMENDOUS  IMPORT  DISPLAY. 

Nine  thousand  different  articles  ! 

For  a  moment  it  is  hard  to  grasp  the  significance  of 
this  figure. 

A  display  of  a  couple  or  three  hundred  articles,  many 
of  them  duplicates,  would  make  up  a  fairly  good  fancy 
goods  stock.  But  multiply  this  by  fifty  and  weed  out  the 
duplicates  and  you  get  some  idea  of  what  nine  thousand 
means. 

The    privilege    of    making    a    selection    from    this    enor-

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


March,  1906 


mous  number  of  samples  is  open  to  every  Canadian  deal- 
er, through  the  energy  and  progressiveness  of  Warwick 
Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  Toronto,  who  for  the  twenty- 
eighth  consecutive  time  have  just  opened  their  annual 
display. 

The  upper  floor  of  their  splendid  new  building  presents 
a  gorgeous  appearance,  with  its  elaborate  decorations  of 
red,  white  and  blue  bunting,  its  clusters  of  electric  lights, 
its  gaily  decorated  stands  and  tables,  on  which  are  ranged 
in  rows  and  tiers  the  thousands  of  beautiful  articles  that 
make  up  the  show. 

To  commence  to  enumerate  and  describe  the  various 
articles  would  be  useless  and  all  but  impossible.  The  trade 
will  take  it  that  after  so  many  years'  experience,  War- 
wick Bros.  &  Rutter  know  their  business  from  top  to  bot- 
tom. They  understand  the  market  where  they  buy  and  they 
have  access  to  the  most  desirable  goods,  and  they  arrange 
to  furnish  these  goods  to  the  Canadian  trade  upon  the 
most  advantageous  terms.  They  understand  the  needs  of 
the  Canadian  market.  And  in  addition  they  possess  an 
enormous  advantage  in  selling  by  samples.  They  are  able 
to  show  an  immense  range  and  it  is  immaterial  to  them 
how  many  of  any  one  article  their  customers  purchase. 

In  conclusion,  Bookseller  &  Stationer's  representative, 
who  inspected  this  year's  show,  can  but  emphasize  the 
fact  which  impressed  itself  upon  him  as  he  strolled 
through  the  various  sections  of  the  exhibition  that  here 
was  to  be .  found  everything  that  a  dealer  could  possibly 
desire.  Every  conceivable  aeticle  was  represented  in  many 
different  styles  and  finishes.  The  prices,  too,  were  right, 
ranging  from  the  very  cheapest  up^  and  centreing  for  the 
most  part  around  twenty-five  cents. 


Mr.  Samuel  M.  Toy,  senior  member  of  the  firm  of

ITEMS    OF    INTEREST. 

The  Thompson  Stationery  Company,  Limited,  Ade- 
laide street  east,  Toronto,  have  assigned  to  E.  B.  Burt. 
The  liabilities  are  about  $3,000. 

Mrs.  W.  C.  Irving  has  purchased  the  stationery  and 
fancy  goods  business  formerly  carried  on  in  the  Heenan 
Block,  Pembroke,  by  Miss  Murray,  and  will  continue  the 
same  in  all  its  branches. 

The  1906  catalogue  of  Premo  cameras,  manufactured 
by  the  Rochester  Optical  Co.,  is  out,  and  is  as  compre- 
hensive as  ever.  The  cover  design,  a  pretty  golf  girl,  is 
an  attractive  one  and  should  cause  the  catalogue  to  be 
in  demand. 

The  Boost  Club,  of  New  York,  held  an  "instructive"' 
smoker  on  February  27,  in  their  rooms,  82  Duane  street. 
The  affair  was  quite  a  success  and  the  "boys"  had  a 
thoroughly  good  time,  as  they  generally  manage  to  do. 
This  was  the  first  of  a  series  the  club  intends  to  hold. 

In  a  letter  to  Bookseller  and  Stationer,  Miss  L.  J. 
Frazer,  of  Hamiota,  Man.,  reports  that  she  found  the 
best  selling  books  at  Christmas  to  be  "A  Specimen 
Spinster,"  by  Kate  Westlake  Yeigh;  "St.  Cuthbert's," 
by  R.  E.  Knowles,  and  "The  Lure  of. the  Labrador 
Wild,"  by  Dillon  Wallace. 

Gatchel  &  Manning,  Philadelphia,  have  splendid  facili- 
ties for  turning  out  high-class  engraving.  They  employ  a 
staff  of  forty  artists  in  their  designing  and  illustrating 
rooms,  who  are  kept  constantly  busy  producing  high- 
grade  designs  and  illustrations.  They  can  undertake  all 
kinds  of  book,  catalogue,  advertising  and  general  com- 
mercial work. 

The  Chas.  H.  Elliott  Company,  Philadelphia,  have 
just  got  out  two  characteristic  black  and  white  pictures 
that  should  be  popular  decorations  for  club  rooms,  bach- 
elors' dens,  etc.  They  are  entitled  respectively  "The 
Customer's  Point  of  View"  and  "The  Bartender's  Point 
of  View,"  which  express  very  well  the  nature  of  the  pic- 
tures. The  execution  is  excellent  and  the  price  $6  per 
100. 

With  a  share  capital  of  $100,000,  the  Standard  En- 
velope Company,  Limited,  have  been  incorporated  by 
Ontario  charter,  to  manufacture,  buy,  sell,  and  other- 
wise dispose  of  envelopes,  letterheads,  billheads,  paper 
and  stationery,  photo  mailers,  etc.,  and  to  carry  on  the 
trade  or  business  of  general  printers,  lithographers,  em- 
bossers and  engravers,  etc.  The  incorporaters  are  H.  W. 
Brick,  G.  H.  Wheeler  and  J.  A.  Stewart,  of  Perth;  J. 
M.  Lawson,  of  Toronto,  and  Edward  Newell,  of  New 
York. 

A  new  playing  card  company  will  soon  be  in  opera- 
tion in  the  United  States,  known  as  the  Frank  A. 
Cleland  Playing  Card  Company,  with  office  at  377  and 
379  Broadway,  New  York.  Mr.  Frank  A.  Cleland,  the 
head  of  the  company,  was  formerly  salesmanager  for  the 
United  States  Playing  Card  Company  and  the  Kalama- 
zoo Paper  Box  &  Card  Company.  The  factory  site  is 
now  located,  the  machinery  has  been  ordered,  the  designs 
for  the  cards  drawn  up,  and  everything  is  almost  in 
readiness.  Gold  bonds  have  been  issued,  guaranteed  by 
the  State  of  Missouri.

business   and     increasing  your   net   profits  during 
the    coming    season  ?     Money     is  to  be  made  in 
business.     Many  men  are  making  comfortable  fortunes. 

Are  you  going  to  be  satisfied  with  the  same  busi-

as  last  ?  Or  are  you  going  to  strike  out  into  new  lines 
and  compel  new  business  in  your  store  ?  These  are  per- 
tinent  questions  and  they  are  asked  to  you,  the  reader. 
Is  it  not  enough  for  you  to  consider  them  general  propo-

have  never  thought  of  such  a  thing.  If  so,  don't  let  the 
novelty  of  the  idea  scare  you.  Carpets  and  curtains  are 
manifestly  a  part  of  the  general  stock,  and  wall  papers 
are  essentially  part  of  the  same  department.  They  per- 
tain to  the  same  class  of  decoration.  It  would  be  in  the 
last  sense  arbitrary  to  say  that  it  was  right  to  sell 
decorations  and  coverings  for  windows  and  floors  and  not 
for  the  walls.

DESPITE  the  fact  that  this  season  is  considered  as 
a  poor  time  to  sell  books  and  stationery,  Mont- 
real booksellers  do  not  complain.  Business  is 
quiet,  they  say,  but  they  cannot  expect  it  to  be  other- 
wise. Most  of  them  did  a  greater  volume  of  business 
this  February  than  they  did  during  the  same  month  last 
year,  and  this  being  the  case  they  are  satisfied.  The 
magazine  trade  has  been  very  good  during  the  past 
month,  and  certain  books  had  a  good  sale.

A  meeting  of  the  directors  of  the  L.  E.  Waterman

cers for  the  ensuing  year  was  as  follows  :  President, 
F.  D.  Waterman;  vice-president,  W.  I.  Ferris;  secretary 
and  manager,  E.  J.  Kastner.  The  report  read  by  the 
secretary  showed  that  a  splendid  business  had  been  done 
during  the  past  year.  The  outlook  for  the  coming  sea- 
son is  even  brighter.

Splendid  business  has  been  done  lately  in  illustrated 
post  cards.  One  dealer  remarked  that  "He  did  not  know- 
where  they  all  went  to."  This  heavy  business  certainly 
proves  that  these  post  cards  are  as  popular  as  ever  with 
the  public,  contrary  to  the  sayings  of  a  few  pessimists 
who  declare  the  business  to  be  dead.  Many  booksellers 
in  dressing  their  window's  form  a  background  of  illus- 
trated post  cards,  and  when  taste  is  displayed  in  the 
dressing  the  effect  is  very  pleasing  to  the  eye,  and  does 
not  fail  to  attract  the  attention  of  buyers.  Other  deal- 
ers prefer  to  show  the  cards  on  tables  in  the  shop.  Com- 
plaints are  made  in  some  quarters  of  losses  sustained 
through  light-fingered  boys,  who  do  not  seem  to  have 
any  scruples  in  appropriating  as  many  cards  as  they 
desire.  J.  J.  (I.

BUSINESS  during  February  and  the  early  weeks  of 
March  has  been  of  a  steady  character.  The  open 
Winter  has  made  shopping  easy  and  there  has  been 
no  interference  with  the  retail  trade.  Books  have  been  in 
fair  demand,  though  stationery  lines  have  been  the  leading 
feature  so  far  as  sales  are  concerned.  The  picture  post 
card  sells  steadily,  pending  the  Summer  rush. 

*  *  * 

The  tendency  in  high  class  stationery  lines  this  past 
Winter  has  been  towards  plainer  styles.  Tinted  notepaper 
has  gone  largely  out  of  fashion  with  the  exception  of 
light  greys,  which  are  still  considered  correct. 


Mr.  E.  M.  Renouf  has  published  a  catechism  of  the 
Protestant  religion,  which  has  met  with  the  approval  of 
the  Protestant  clergy  of  the  Province  of  Quebec.  The 
catechism  has  been  recommended  for  use  in  the  public 
schools  under  control  of  the  Protestant  board  of  school 
commissioners.

Several  new  books  have  appeared.      A  new  one  by  W. 

^lark  Russell,  "The  Yarn  of  Old  Harbor  Town,"  is  re- 
ported as  selling  well  so  far,  and  "A  Staff  Officer's  Note 

•Book,"  by  Ian  Hamilton,  is  also  doing  very  well.  Deal- 
ers expect  to  do  big  business  with  Louis  Tracy's  new 
book,   "Karl   Grier."     Some  booksellers  have  had  a    few 


Social  activities  during  the  Winter  have  kept  the  sta- 
tioners busy  getting  out  invitations,  programmes  and 
cards  of  all  sorts.  Never  before  has  there  been  such  a  run 
of  gaiety  in  the  city.  Even  the  coming  of  Lent  does  not 
seem  to  have  put  a  stop  to  the  social  functions.  Bridge 
has  been  in  extraordinary  favor  all  Winter.  The  result 
has  been  a  steady  demand  not  only  for  cards  and  score 
pads,  but  for  bcfoks  of  instruction  and  all  sorts  of  fancy 
articles,  which  could  be  used  for  prizes.

FEBRUARY  was  a  busy  month  with  most  Winnipeg' 
book  stores  and  the  turnover  was  large.  The  Val- 
entine trade  was  larger  than  ever,  and  it  deserved 
to  be,  for  the  local  stores  went  after  it  in  the  right 
way  with  effective  window  and  interior  displays,  aided 
by  a  judicious  use  of  printer's  ink.  This  trade  does  a 
great  deal  to  eke  out  what  was  once  a  dull  month  in  the 
book  and  stationery  stores. 

The  picture  post  card  trade  in  Winnipeg  is  always 
large  and  local  stores  are  preparing-  for  a  big-  business 
this  coming-  Summer  among  tourists.  Views  of  Winni- 
peg and  typical  western  views  are  always  good  sellers 
here,  while  the  picture  post  card  of  a  general  nature 
finds  a  ready  sale. 

Special  sales  in  two  or  three  of  the  stores  were  the 
feature  of  the  -month.  Russell,  Lang  &  Co.  conducted  a 
very  successful  clearing  sale,  which  lasted  more  than  two 
weeks.  Evidently  the  object  was  to  clear  out  stock,  for 
tempting  reductions  were  made  on  all  lines.  As  a  leader 
in  the  new  books  "St.  Cuthbert's"  was  sold  for  75c. 

C.  H.  Black,  Limited,  a  new  firm  of  office  furnishers,

CHARLES  C.  MARTIN,  who  has  been  identified  with 
the  retail  stationery  business  of  Halifax  for  over 
thirty  years,  is  to  leave  the  city  in  April,  and  is 
at  present  selling  off  the  stock  in  his  store  on  George 
street.  He  has  purchased  the  book,  stationery  and  fancy 
goods  business  of  R.  W.  Eaton,  at  Kentville,  N.S.,  and 
will  remove  there  altogether  next  month. 

John  L.  Connolly,  the  Barrington  street  stationer,  is, 
and  has  been  for  two  or  three  weeks,  confined  to  his  bed 
by  illness.  At  his  store  business  is  reported  as  brisk  as 
usual,  and  in  the  picture  post  card  line  a  great  run  on 
local  moonlight  views  in  colors  is  noticed. 

At  T.  C.  Allen  &  Co.'s  trade  is  good  and  in  fiction 
work  sales  "Fair  Margaret"  and  "The  Gambler"  continue 
to  hold  their  own,  while  "When  it  was  Dark"  and  "Con- 
quest of  Canaan"  figure  largely.  In  the  picture  post  card 
trade  the  firm  handle  only  their  own  series  of  twenty- 
eight  local  views,  plain  and  colored,  and  thev  think  the 
card  craze  is  at  the  top  notch  this  season.  Allen  &  Co. 
also  issued  a  series  of  six  local  views  on  letter  cards, 
and  there  is  quite  a  demand  for  them. 

At  L.  Clyde  Davidson  &  Co.'s,  Barrington  street, 
Thome's  "When  It  was  Dark"  is  reported  as  the  great 
seller  in  fiction,  though  it  is  not  a  new  book.  It  seems 
the  rage  here  just  now,  and  Davidson's  have  sold  out  two 
or  three  times  and  have  placed  another  order  in  England. 
"The  House  of  One  Thousand  Candles"  continues  to  sell 
well.  Moonlight  scenes  in  colors  and  plain  embossed  are 
the   picture  cards   in   demand,    and    the   magazine   trade   is 


reported   very   brisk.     The  uovell  v    i  hi     wei  '

time  Mr.   Smith   was  in  despair  of  gelling  a  central   loca 
fcion  suitable  for  his  business  and  feared  he  might   have  to 
remove  from   the  city.     But    he  has  just   secured  a  lease  of 
a  fine  store  in  the  Whitehall  building  on  Barrington  s1 
just  north  of  the  city  hall,  and  this  will  doubtless  prove  a 
good  stand   for   trade.

ANNUAL  MEETING. 

TH  1l   annual   meeting  of   the   shareholders   of   the   Mus- 
son    Book    Company,     Limited,      of    Toronto,    was 
held  at  their  offices   on   the  seventh   inst.     A    most 
satisfactory    statement,   was   presented,    and    the    company 
have  decided     to    increase     their     authorized  capital     to 
$100,000. 

They  have  been  gradually  adding  to  their  premises 
more  space,  and  from  the  list  of  new  and  forthcoming 
books  given  in  their  advertisement  in  this  issue,  their 
standing  as  Canadian  publishers  of  fiction  cannot  be 
questioned. 

Their   London  office  at  the  Mansion  House   Building,, 
Queen   Victoria   street,    London    (EC.)    England,   is   under 
the  management     of     Frederic  ('.   Tort,   who   represented

C.   W.    COATES,   THE   MONTREAL  BOOK  ROOM. 

A  SALIENT  and  peculiar  example  of  the  best  ideas 
taken  from  the  old-fashioned  bookshop,  together 
with  some  of  the  essentials  incorporated  from 
modern  stores  and  methods,  is  afforded  by  the  es- 
tablishment of  C.  W.  Coates,  the  Montreal  Book 
Room,  2176  St.  Catherine  street,  Montreal.  A  glance  at 
the  illustration  of  the  interior  shows  how  the  small 
space  is  utilized  to  advantage  and  gives  an  inkling  of 
how  the  store  has  kept  pace  with  new  and  laudable  im- 


Publishing  House,  the  Montreal  Book  Room  naturally 
takes  its  stand  as  a  forcible  educating  and  uplifting 
power.  The  business  specializes  largely  on  Sunday 
school  requisites  and  text  books  for  various  theological 
colleges,  as  well  as  hymn  and  revival  books  of  various 
creeds.  In  this  way  a  steady  jobbing  trade  is  transact- 
ed as  well.  By  progressive  cultivation  a  growing  family 
trade  in  the  better  class  of  fiction  has  been  acquired, 
and  this  is  looked  after  with  a  good  deal  of  attention. 
In  modern  fiction,  pernicious  literature  is  avoided  and  a 


provements.  There  is  only  about  seventeen  feet  frontage 
and  thirty-five  feet  deepth,  but  the  very  high  ceiling  and 
the  spacious  shelving  allows  for  the  arrangement  of  a 
largftc-stock  of  book  and  stationery  lines.  A  good  dis- 
\^m  window  is  regularly  changed  and  the  entrance  door 
«rused  to  announce  the  new  arrivals  by  means  of 
placards  pasted  thereon.  In  a  quiet,  dignified  way  dis- 
play ideas  are  employed  and  a  showcase  and  display  rack 
illustrate  modern  ideas. 

As  a  branch  of  the  Toronto     Methodist    Book     and 


worthy  effort  is  made  to  sell  only  healthy  fiction.  An 
expanding  trade  is  being  done  in  musical  publications, 
particularly  church  music,  and  the  firm  acts  as  agents 
for  a  number  of  music  houses.  In  all  lines  a  large  as- 
sortment is  kept  and  the  stock  is  constantly  replenished 
from  the  surplus  kept  in  the  basement.  The  magazine 
trade  has  hot  been  attempted,  but  some  daily  and  week- 
ly papers  of  a  standard  nature  are  sold.  In  the  better 
class  of  Christmas  and  Easter  cards,  etc.,  a  bid  is  made 
for  business.

I.LY.  PUBLISHERS'  AGENTS. 

ANEW  firm  of  publishers'  agents  lias  recently  been 
established  in  Toronto,  under  the  name  of  Smith  & 
Todd,   with  office  and  sample  room  at   21   Richmond 

street  west.  Mr.  Smith,  the  senior  member  of  the  linn, 
arrived  in  Canada  frotn  Engknd  over  twelve  months  ago 
as  representative  of  several  English  publishers,  notably 
T.  Fisher  Unwin,  Gale  &  Polden,  and  George  Allen.  Since 
then  he  has  added  several  others  to  his  list.  lie  has 
traveled  practically  all  through  the  Dominion,  starting  at 
Halifax  and  going  as  far  west  as  Victoria,  prospecting  for 
future  business  and   receiving   much   encouragement'. 

Having  found  it  necessary  to  establish  himself  perma- 
nently in  Toronto,  Mr.  Smith  li.  s  taken  Mr.  Frank  II. 
Todd  into  partnership.  Mr.  Todd,  though  very  youthful 
in   appearance,   has   had  a  long  experience  in    the   insurance

business,  and  enters  the  book  business  with  a  solid  back- 
in::   of  brain  and  energy. 

Togethei  Mr.  Smith  and  Mr.  Todd  will  cover  all  parts 
of  the  Dominion  from  time  to  lime.  They  contend  that 
they  have  some  oi  'he  linest  lines  possible  to  put  on  the 
market  and  are  placing  their  firms  in  line  with  the  re- 
quirements  of    the   Canadian   trade.

accurately  gauged  by  the  profitable  growth  of  the  busi- 
ness. His  rugged  physique,  which  entirely  discredits  the 
Osier  theory,  was  gained  bv  his  earlv  farm  life,  as  he 
was  born  in  Augusta  township  in  1835.  At  the  age  of 
sixteen  he  entered  the  employ  of  the  Prescott  Telegraph, 
where  he  remained  for  four  years,  showing-  remarkable 
aptitude  and  progressing  well.  His  ambition  carried 
him  to  Toronto  in  1858,  as  a  periodical  clerk  of  the  To- 
ronto Book  Room.  He  was  moved  to  Montreal  as  man- 
ager in   1875,   and  has  remained  there  ever  since. 

From  the  trade  in  Montreal  many  a  spontaneous 
tribute  to  his  character  and  worth  is  heard,  it  may  be 
said  that  his  is  a  true  example  of  scrupulous  and  down- 
right honesty  ir.  business  affairs.  In  the  conduct  of 
business  he  exercises  systematic  detail  and  thoroughness. 
and   incorporates     every     available    facility    for   improve-

2o  the  Consumer: 


Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain  Yen  is  perfect 
in  every  detail  of  construction.  It  is  so 
simple  that  it  cannot  get  out  of  order  except 
by  accident  or  by  the  tinkering  of  some  one 
who  does  not  understand  it.  It  contains  only 
selected  materials  of  the  highest  grade  put 
together  and  adjusted  by  workmen  ^skilled 
and  of  long  experience. 

A  perfect  fountain  pen  is  the  greatest  boon 
to  those  who  write.  We  have  made  an  ex- 
haustive study  of  the  requirements  of  all 
ers,  and  whether  pens  are  intended  for 
personal  correspondence,  business  offices, 
*ju*iting  rooms,  editorial  desks,  stenogra- 
phic reporting  or  manifold  work.  We  can 
Knit  the  most  exacting. 


The  Spoon  Feed 


RE  T^MfiS 


The  action  ot  Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain 
Pen  depends  on  the  Spoon-Feed,  a  patented 
device  which  insures  absolute  certainty  and 
uniformity  of  ink  to  the  pen  point  when  writ- 
ing and  prevents  blotting  or  flooding  of  trie 
last  few  drops— a  common  objection  to  al- 
most all  other  fountain  pens. 

The  Spoon-Feed,  which  has  cups  in  the 
side,  cannot  be  used  in  any  other  make  than 
Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain  Pen. 


R] 


Ideal  Clip-Cap 


is  strong  as  well  as  simple.  Made  usually 
of  German  Silver,  it  is  fastened  on  to  the  Cap"' 
in  such  a  way  as  to  make  it  almost  part  of 
the  cap  itself. 

It  is  permanent- 
ly secured  with  a 
one-piece  rivet 
that  leaves  no  ob- 
struction inside. 

It  enables  one  to 
carry  a  fountain 
pen  in  the  coat  or 
vest  pocket  with 
an  absolute  sense 
of  security.

Fountain  Pen  Ink 


Any  good  fluid  ink  may  be  used  with  satis- 
faction in  Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain  Pen. 
Anybody  that  uses  our  pens  knows  that. 


There  is  only 
one  ink,  how- 
ever, on  which 
you  can  always 
depend,  and  that 
is  one  which  is 
especially  made 
for  fountain  pen 
use.  To  be  al- 
ways certain  in- 
sist on  Water-

It  sometimes  occurs  that  the  use  of  differ- 
ent kinds  of  ink  results  in  a  chemical  action 
that  unfits  it  for  use  in  any  fountain  pen, and 
dealers  should  not  overlook  the  fact  that  our 
ink  is  an  unusually  fluid,  blue-black,  espec- 
ially adapted  to  fountain  pen  use. 

It  is  put  up  in  regular-sized  bottles,  rrom 
two  ounces  to  a  quart,  as  well  as  in  the  Desk 
and  Travellers'  Filler  styles  that  are  now  so

To  the  Consumer: 


Waterman's  (deal  Fountain  Pen  is  perfect 
in  every  detail  of  const  met  ion.  It  is  so 
simple  that  it  cannot  get  out  of  order  except 
b>  accident  or  by  the  tinkering  of  some  one 
who  doesnot  understand  it.  It  contains  only 
selected  materials  of  the  highest  grade  put 
together  and  adjusted  by  workmen  skilled 
and  of  long  experience. 

A  perfect  fountain  pen  is  the  greatest  boon 
to  those  who  write.  We  have  made  an  ex- 
haustive study  oi  the  requirements  of  all 
writers,  and  whether  pens  are  intended  for 
personal  correspondence,  business  offices, 
counting  rooms,  editorial  desks,  stenogra- 
phic reporting  or  manifold  work,  we  can 
suit   the  most  exacting. 

The  Spoon  Feed 


The  action  of  Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain 
Pen  depends  on  the  Spoon-Feed,  a  patented 
device  which  insures  absolute  certainty  and 
uniformity  of  ink  to  the  pen  point  when  writ- 
ing and  prevents  blotting  or  flooding  of  the 
last  few  drops — a  common  objection  to  al- 
most all  other  fountain  pens. 

The  Spoon-Feed,  which  has  cups  in  the 
side,  cannot  be  used  in  any  other  make  than 
Waterman's  Ideal  Fountain  Pen. 


Ideal  Clip-Cap 


is  strong  as  well  as  simple.  Made  usually 
of  German  Silver,  it  is  fastened  on  to  the  cap 
in  such  a  way  as  to  make  it  almost  part  of 
the  cap  itself. 

It  is  permanent- 
ly secured  with  a 
one-piece  rivet 
that  leaves  no  ob- 
struction inside. 

It  enables  one  to 
carry  a  fountain 
pni  in  the  coat  or 
vest  pocket  with 
an  absolute  sense 
ot  security. 

When  vests  are 
discarded    it    is   a 

boon  to  the  man  who  would  carry  his  pen  in 
his  coat  pocket. 

Clip-Caps  are  made  in  German  Silver, 
Sterling  Silver,  18-Karat  gold  filled,  and  H- 
Karat  Solid  Gold  at  prices  shown  in  the 
next  column.

NOTES    FROM    THE     EDITORIAL    SANCTUM 


ACCORDING  to  our  custom  in  past  years,  we  will 
make  the  May  issue  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer 
a  Summer  Reading  number.  The  usual  lists  of 
books  suitable  for  holiday  trade  will  be  provided  and 
full  information  given  regarding-  cheap  editions.  The 
number  will  also  pay  special  attention  to  souvenir  goods. 
The  demand  for  novelties  to  attract  the  tourist  trade  is 
always  strong,  and  anything  we  can  do  to  assist  dealers 
in  securing  an  attractive  stock  will  be  done.  The  num- 
ber will,  of  course,  be  considerably  larger  than  our  or- 
dinary issue  and  will  be  well  illustrated. 


Some  complaints  have  reached  us  that  our  reviews 
of  books  are  not  as  impartial  as  they  should  be,  and 
that,  were  booksellers  to  follow  our  advice,  they  would 
make  mistakes  in  their  purchases.  We  protest  strongly 
against  any  such  assertions.  In  the  first  place  we  hold 
that  the  bookseller  is  himself  the  best  judge  of  the  sale- 
able qualities  of  a  book  for  his  particular  district.  Ac- 
cordingly, in  our  reviews  we  do  not  express  dogmatic 
opinions,  but  endeavor  to  assist  the  bookseller  by  telling 
him  what  a  given  book  is  about.  The  great  bulk  of  cur- 
rent fiction  is  mediocre,  and  we  would  be  the  last  ones 
to  attempt  to  magnify  the  value  of  a  poor  book.  It  is 
our  aim  to  state  briefly  what  a  book  is  about.  If  we 
can  conscientiously  praise  any  feature  of  it  we  do  so. 
Thereafter  we  leave  it  to  the  intelligence  of  the  book- 
seller to  decide  whether  or  no  he  can  sell  the  book. 


That  the  advertising  contest  which  we  conducted  last 
Fall  was  appreciated  by  our  readers  is  evident.  In  the 
course  of  a  letter  to  Bookseller  and  Stationer,  C.  L. 
Nelles,  the  Guelph  bookseller,  writes  :  "I  might  as  well 
continue  and  make  an  observation  about  the  advertising 
contest  held  by  your  good  paper  some  months  ago,  in 
which  R.  A.  Land  was  judged  first.  This  seemed  to  be 
(by  the  ads  shown)  a  decision  of  a  man  who  approves 
more  of  the  solid-reading  than  the  display  style  of  ad- 
vertising. There  is  a  great  diversity  of  opinion  amongst 
expert  advertisers,  some  of  them  sticking  almost  ex- 
clusively to  solid  matter,  whilst  a  great  many  others 
consider  display  ads  as  being  more  catchy  and  attrac- 
tive. However,  I  hope  your  contest  gave  some  good  re- 
sult to  the  trade,  as  there  is  no  doubt  that  a  number  of 
them  require  brightening  up  on  the  side  of  advertising." 


The  special  attention  of  our  readers  is  directed  to 
the  offer  which  we  make  at  greater  length  in  the  editorial 
pages,  with  regard  to  sending  lists  of  best-selling  books 
to  local  newspapers.  This  is  a  form  of  advertising  for 
the  retailer  that  costs  nothing,  and  on  the  face  of  it 
looks  to  be  advantageous.  A  paragraph  in  any  news- 
paper giving  the  names  of  the  six  books  which  are  in 
greatest  demand  in  Canada  is  certain  to  arouse  some 
interest  and,  if  we  are  not  mistaken,  to  lead  to  an  in- 
quiry for  the  books  mentioned.  To  repeat,  we  will  send 
to  any  newspaper  with  which  an  arrangement  is  made 
by  a  local  bookseller,  an  advance  proof  every  month  of 
our  list  of  best  sellers  for  the  preceding  month. 

*  *  * 

A  department  which  we  hope  to  be  able  to  place  on 
a  permanent  footing  soon  is  the  department  devoted  to 
the  interests  of  the  window-dresser.  The  difficulty  in  the 
past  has  been  to  secure  illustrations,  for  without  an 
illustration  it  is  almost  an  impossibility  to  give  a  pro- 
per lesson  in  the  art.  However,  it  is  our  hope  that  soon 
we  shall  be  in  a  position  to  insert  an  occasional  illustra- 
tion that  will  be  of  value  to  our  readers.  The  depart- 
ment of  good  advertising  will,  at  the  same  time,  be 
sedulously   cultivated. 

*  *  * 

It  is  gratifying  to  us  to  find  our  readers  appealing 
to  us  to  make  public  certain  grievances  which  are  inter- 
fering with  the  smooth  running  of  their  business.  This 
month  our  attention  has  been  particularly  directed  by  a 
correspondent  in  the  Northwest  to  the  inadequacy  of 
the  news  companies'  service  in  that  part  of  the  Do- 
minion. On  receiving  his  letter  we  immediately  re- 
ferred it  to  our  Winnipeg  office,  and  the  manager  there 
did  the  best  he  could  in  a  short  time  to  size  up  the 
situation  by  interviewing  prominent  dealers  there.  We 
would  like  any  of  our  readers  in  the  west,  who  are  in- 
terested, in  the  matter,  to  drop  us  a  line,  believing  that 
there  is  a  great  deal  of  efficacy  in  combined  action. 

*  *  * 

A  monthly  letter  from  London  is  to  be  a  feature  of 
future  numbers  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer.  It  will  be 
written  by  a  capable  correspondent  in  our  London  office. 
and  will  give  a  thorough  account  of  trade  conditions  in 
the  Motherland.  A  section  of  the  letter  will  deal  with 
books,  and  the  balance  will  discuss  stationery  and  fancy 
goods  lines.

"Lady  Hetty  Across  the  Water,"  by  C.  N.  and  A. 
M.  Williamson,  authors  of  "My  Friend  the  Chauffeur,"  will 
be  published  by  the  Mnsson  Hook  Company  on  May  5.  It- 
is  a  bright  and  vivacious  Anglo-American  love  story— not 
an  automobile  story  this  time,  but  with  enough  of  the 
"bubble"  in  it  to  attract  the  motor  lovers.  Lady  Betty 
is  sure  to  dance  right  into  popularity,  for  she  is  the  most 
fascinating,  pert  and  clever  little  lady  imaginable,  and  it 
is  no  mystery  why  every  man  she  meets  falls  in  love  with 


the  honor  of  recognition  nol  accorded  to  any  other  writer 
since  L849,  when  Fronde's  famous  "Nemesis  of  Faith" 
was  publicly  burned  by  the  Union  Society  of  Oxford. 
"First  it  Was  Ordained"  is  a  story  full  of  action.  This 
subject,  one  of  vital  importance  to  the  state,  the  church 
and  the  home,  as  shown  by  the  disclosures  of  the  census, 
treats  of  The  diminishing  birth  rate.  There  is  absolutely 
nothing  in  the  story  that  would  offend  the- susceptibilities 
of  the  most  captious.'  The  subject  has  been  handled  with 
wonderful  care  and  restraint.  In  Great  Britain  "When  it 
Was  Dark,"  by  the  same  author,  has  reached  a  sale  of 
175,000  copies.  It  is  expected  this  new  novel  will  exceed 
that. 

"Pam  Decides,"  by  Bettina  Van  Mutton,  author  of 
"Pam,"  (cloth,  $1.25)  will  be  ready  about  the  end  of 
April. 

"Uncle   William,:'    by    Jenuette    Lee,    author   of    "The

her.  The  book  contains  eight  illustrations  in  four  colors 
by  Orson  Lowell.     (Cloth,   $1.50.) 

"The  Truth  About  Tobia,"  by  Bertha  Runkle,  author 
of  "The  Helmet  of  Navarre,"  a  highly  amusing  novel  of 
to-day,  is  meeting  a  splendid  welcome  by  the  reading  pub- 
lic. Frontispiece  in  four  colors  by  Henry  Hutt.  (Cloth, 
12mo.,  $1.50.) 

"Kenelen's  Desire,"  by  Hughes  Cornell  (cloth,  $1.50), 
is  now  ready.  This  attractive  story  of  events  real  and 
imaginary  gives  a  glimpse  into  the  true  character  of  its 
hero,  Kenelen,  who  is  an  Alaska  Indian,  adopted  and  edu- 
cated by  a  white  family  of  British  Columbia.  The  author 
has  received  high  praise  for  his  faithful  and  realistic  de- 
lineation of  the  Indian  character. 

Guy  Thome's  latest  novel,  "First  it  Was  Ordained," 
(cloth,  $1.25)  is  now  ready.  This  is  the  last  and  undoubt- 
edly the  greatest  of  all  the  writings  of  Ibis  great  author, 
who  because  of  his  criticism  of  church  establishment   has 


Son  of  a  Fiddler,"  (cloth,  $1)  is  a  most  entertaining, 
whimsical  and  lovable  character  who  has  come  to  refresh 
a  weary  world.  Uncle  William  liked  to  loaf  and  he  loved 
the  sea,  like  the  true  Nova  Scotia  fisherman  he  was.  The 
tender  absurdities  of  this  old  man's  experiences,  and  the 
unfolding  of  a  very  pretty  love  story,  make  a  tale  of  rare 
charm. 

Rider  Haggard's  new  book,  "The  Way  of  the  Spirit," 
will  be  published  by  the  Musson  Book  Company  about  the 
end   of-  April. 

"The  Fight  for  Canada,"  by  William  Wood,  a  navy 
league  secretary,  major  in  the  Canadian  militia,  and 
president  of  the  Literary  and  Historical  Society  of  Que- 
bec, (8vo.,  cloth,  $2.50  net)  contains  portraits  of  Wolfe 
and  Montcalm,  battle  plans  and  maps.  Major  Wood  views 
the  entire  campaign  in  the  aspect  of  a  combined  naval 
and  military  operation,  in  which  sea  power  is  now  made 
to   assume   its   proper    relation    to   British   conquests.     He

takes  a  broad  and  statesmanlike  view  of  the  events,  and 
his  brilliant  work  in  the  battle  of  the  plains  is  rendered 
particularly  attractive  by  his  skill  in  setting  forth  the 
situation  and  the  freshness  of  his  illustrations. 

The  Canadian  edition  of  "Bird  Guide,"  by  Chester  A. 
Reed,  B.S.,  author  of  "North  America  Birds'  Eggs,"  and 
Frank  M.  Chapman,  author  of  "Color  Key  to  North. 
American  Birds,"  in  parts  I.  and  II.  (cloth,  50c.  each 
part ;  leather,  75c.  each  part)  will  be  published  by  the 
Musson  Book  Company  on  April  20.  This  work  is  un- 
doubtedly the  best  and  only  book  answering  all  the  re- 
quirements of  teachers,  students  and  beginners  in  bird 
study.  The  volumes  are  small  so  as  to  render  the  student 
practical  aid  in  his  study  and  travels. 

Two  important  books  just  published  by  the  Musson 
Book  Company  are  "Encyclopaedia  of  Etiquette,"  by 
Emily  Holt,  containing  nine  illustrations  (net  $2),  and 
"The  Complete  Housekeeper,"  by  the  same  author  ($2 
net). 

William  Briggs. 

William  Briggs  announces  to  the  Canadian  trade  that 
he  is  now  the  agent  for  the  Ernest  Thompson  Seton 
books,  in  succession  to  Morang  &  Co.,  Limited.  All  the 
old  books  on  animal  life  can  be  procured  from  him  and 
he  will  handle  all  the  future  work  of  this  author. 

William  Briggs  also  announces  that  all  Morang  & 
Co.'s  trade  editions  can  in  future  be  bought  through 
him,  he  having  arranged  to  act  as  selling  agent  for  the 
Morang  books. 

The  edition  of  George  Barr  McCutcheon's  new  novel. 
"Cowardice  Court,"  which  has  just  been  placed  on  the 
market,  is  a  beautiful  example  of  book-making.  The 
cover  is  handsomely  designed,  the  illustrations  are  all 
choicely  colored  inserts  and  each  page  is  elaborately 
decorated.      (Cloth,  $1.25.) 

Another  paper  edition  of  "A  Welsh  Singer,"  by  Allen 
ltaine,  is  ready,  and  also  a  second  paper  edition  of  "The 
Garden  of  Allah,"  by  Robert  Hichens.  Both  books  still 
sell  well,  and  there  is  also  a  constant  demand  for  "God's 
Good  Man,"  by  Marie  Corelli. 

"A  Motor  Car  Divorce,"  by, Louise  Closser  Hale,  and 
"An  Opal  Serpent,"  by  Fergus  Hume,  are  Willian 
Briggs'  latest  fiction  publications.  Both  were  issued  on 
April  5  in  cloth  and  paper  editions.     ($1.25  and  75c.) 

The  Oxford  University  Press. 

On  April  2  the  Oxford  University  Press  moved  into 
their  renovated  offices  on  the  ground  floor  of  the  Claren- 
don Building,  Richmond  street,  Toronto.  Several  im- 
portant changes  have  been  made  in  the  building  since  the 
fire,  notably  the  division  of  the  ground  floor  into  two 
offices.  That  on  the  left  hand  is  now  occupied  by  the 
Oxford  Press,  while  the  right  hand  office  will  be  taken 
by  the  Baptist  Book  Room  on  May  1.  In  the  opinion  of 
Bookseller  and  Stationer  the  change  will  be  advantage- 
ous to  the  Oxford  Press,  as  it  concentrates  all  depart- 
ments and  makes  the  premises  conform  better  to  the 
modern  notion  of  a  publishing  house. 

To  the  left  of  the  entrance  is  located  Mr.  S.  B. 
Gundy's  private  office,  shut  off  by  a  high  partition  and 
furnished  with  hard  wood  desk,  chairs  and  bookcase 
Adjoining  it  is  the  business  office,  also  handsomely 
furnished  and  conveniently  arranged.  The  door  of  the 
office  opens  into  the  large  sample  and  stock  room.  Down 
the  centre  on  a  special  sloping  stand  are  spread  out  the 
sample  books,  while  to  left  and  right  high  and  deep 
shelving  admits  of  the  storage  of  an  immense  stock  of 
books.  The  depth  of  the  shelves,  which  furnish  room  far 
four,   five  and  six  rows   of  books,   make   the   arrangement 


of  the  stock  most  convenient.  At  the  rear  are  the  ship- 
ping department   and  freight   elevator. 

The  Oxford  Press  also  use  the  commodious  basement 
for  storage  purposes,  and  they  are  reserving  a  large 
room  on  the  top  floor  of  the  building  for  emergencies. 
The  first  floor  is  occupied  by  the  Maemillan  Co.,  of  Can- 
ada. ' 

To  admit  of  future  enlargement,  Mr.  Gundy  has  so 
arranged  the  partition  on  the  ground  floor  that  the 
front  portion  can  be  readily  removed,  thus  giving  room 
for  a  large  showroom  and  more  space  for  storage. 

The    Copp,    Clark    Co.,    Limited. 

Within  the  last  few  weeks  several  books  have  issued 
from  the  presses  of  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  The  first  to 
arrive  was  the  £100  prize  novel,  "Saints  in  Society," 
by  Mrs.  Baillie-Saunders,  which  has  had  a  splendid  re- 
ception. The  next  was  "The  Corsican  Lovers,"  by 
Charles  Felton  Pidgin.  Following  it  came  Lilian  Bell's 
much-heralded  novel,  "Carolina  Lee."  Max  Pember- 
ton's    "My      Sword     for     Lafayette,"      John   Oxenham's 


Mrs.   Baillie-Saunders 
Author  of  "Saints  in  Society.''      (Copp,  Clark  Co). 

"Giant  Circumstance,"  and  Mary  Dillon's  "In  Old 
Bellaire,"  have  just  appeared  as  we  go  to  press. 

The  volume  on  "Landscape  Painting  and  Modern 
Dutch  Artists/'  by  E.  B.  Greenshields,  of  Montreal,  was 
published  last  month.  It  has  taken  hold  well,  and  its 
sales  have  been  large,   especially  in  Montreal. 

For  publication  in  the  immediate  future,  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  announce  the  following  in  the  order  named  : 
"The  Healers,"  by  Maarten  Maartens  ;  "The  Great  Re- 
fusal," by  Maxwell  Gray  ;  "Dearlove,"  by  Frances 
Campbell;  "The -Freemasons,"  by  L.  S.  Gibson;  "A 
Diplomatic  Adventure,"  by  Dr.  S.  Weir  Mitchell',  and 
"Kid  McGhie,"  by  S.   R.  Crockett. 

The  title  of  E.  P.  Oppenheim's  new  book  has  been 
changed  from  "The  Malefactor"  to  "Mr.  Wingrave, 
Millionaire."     It  will  be  ready  shortly. 

The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  are  now  the  agents  in  Canada 
for  the  famous  John  Henry  books,  of  which  over  half  a 
million  copies  have  been  sold.  The  latest  of  these  hum- 
orous productions,  "Skiddoo,"  is  announced  for  early 
publication.

McLeod  &  Allen. 

McLeod  &  Allen  have  just  published  the  Canadian

Woman,"  will  be  ready  for  the  Canadian  market  shortly. 
Marchmont  is  a  favorite  with  a  wide  circle  of  readers  in 
this   country. 

Those  who  read  "The  Grafters"  a  year  or  so  ago, 
will  welcome  Francis  Lynde's  New  story,  "The  Quicken- 
ing," in  which  he  has  introddced  again  the  elements 
which  went  to  make  his  earlier  work  so  engrossing. 
"The  Quickening"  will  be  ready  this  month. 

"The  Golden  Greyhound,"  by  Dwight  Tilton,  and 
"The  Girl  from  Tim's  Place,"  by  Charles  Clark  Munn, 
are  now  ready  in  Canadian  editions. 

"Judith,"  by  Grace  Williams,  is  a  strong  story  of 
the  early  days  ofi  settlement  on  the  Ohio.  It  introduces 
two  rather  remarkable  characters  in  Judith  and  her 
parson  lover.     It  is  now  ready  in  a  Canadian  edition. 

To  counteract  the  flood  of  socialistic  and  destructive 
literature  that  is  pouring  from  the  press  to-day,  D.  M. 
Parry,  president  of  the  National  Association  of  Manu- 
facturers of  the  United  States,  has  written  a  striking 
novel,  "The  Scarlet  Empire,"  in  which  he  endeavors  to 
snow  what  life  would  be  like  were  the  world  to  accept 
the  tenets  of  socialism. 

Books  to  be  published  almost  immediately  by  Mc- 
Leod &  Allen  are  "The  Day  Dreamer,"  by  Jesse  Lynch 
Williams,  and  "The  Prisoner  of  Ornith  Farm,"  by 
Frances  Powell. 

A  great  stir  has  been  caused  by  the  publication  of 
Upton  Sinclair's  novel  dealing  with  the  pork-packing  in- 
dustry of  Chicago,  "The  Jungle."  It  will  rank  among 
the   most   remarkable    books   of   the   year.      Already     the 


Canadian   edition  has  been   exhausted  and  a  new  edition 
called  for. 

Morang  &  Co  ,  Limited. 

Four  volumes  have  recently  been  added  to  that  con- 
cise little  series  of  handbooks,  Morang's  Literature 
Series.  They  are  "Hawthorne's  Wonder  Book,"  edited 
by  J.  C.  Saul  ;  "Selections  from  Longfellow,"  edited  by 
J.  C.  Saul;  "Narrative  Poems,"  edited  by  J.  C.  Saul, 
and  "High  School  Prose,  Part  II.,"  edited  by  ().  J. 
Stevenson. 

The  Macmillan  Co.  of  Canada. 

The  Macmillan  Company  have  just  published  Owen 
Wister's  new  novel,  "Lady  Baltimore."  The  advance  sales 
have  been  satisfactorily  large  and  when  the  merits  of  the 
hook  are  grasped  by  the  public  it  will  undoubtedly  be- 
come highly  popular. 

"If  Youth  but  Knew,"  the  novel  on  which  Agues  and 
Egerton  Castle  have  collaborated,  is  also  ready.  It  has 
all  the  lightness  and  charm  of  "The  Pride  of  Jennico." 

About  the  end  of  April  the  Macmillan  Company  will 
have  ready  "The  Vine  of  Sibmah,"  by  Andrew  Macphail. 

"Coniston,"  by  Winston  Churchill,  publication  of 
which  has  been  postponed  so  many  times,  will  not  likely 
be  ready  now  unti'  the  end  of  June. 

The  publishers  are  delighted  with  the  success  achieved 
by  "The  Portreeve,"  by  Eden  Phillpots.  Sales  have 
been  three  times  as  large  as  they  anticipated. 

The  Macmillan  Comnany  of  Canada  have  added  to 
their  list  of  agencies  those  of  Swan,  Sonnenschein  &  Co., 
Whitaker  &  Sons,  and  James  Maclehose. 

Among  the  many  new  works  arranged  for  by  the  Mac- 
millan Company  are  the  following  :  "Cyclopedia  of  Edu- 
cation" ;  "Anthology  of  French  Poetry"  ;  a  new  series  of 
six  shilling  color  books  including  "English  Gardens," 
"Norfolk  Broads,"  "Oxford,"  "The  Rhine,"  "Spain," 
"Holland,"  etc.  ;  Crane's  "Reminiscences  of  an  Artist"  ]

ALEXANDER,    GRACE.— "Judith."     Indianapolis:   The 

'  Bobbs-Merrill  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  The  love  story  of 
a  young  and  beautiful  maiden  of  Camden,  on  the 
Ohio,  and  a  Methodist  preacher  from  New  England. 
The  tragic  element  centres  round  Judith's  betrothal 
to  a  playmate  of  her  childhood's  days,  which  causes 
agony  to  her  and  a  puritan's  remorse  to  her  parson- 
lover.  Several  passages  in  the  story  are  told  with 
uncommon  strength.  As  would  naturally  be  inferred, 
the  ending  is  made  conventional  by  the  death  of  the 
third  character. 

BATLLIE-SAUNDERS,  MARGARET.— "Saints  in  So- 
ciety." Toronto  :  The  Copp,  Clark  Co..  Limited. 
Cloth,  $1.25.  Mark  Hading,  the  hero  of  this  book, 
is  a  strong  portrayal  of  a  man  risen  from  the  ranks 
to  high  social  position.  As  a  labor  leader  he  starts 
out  with  high  aims,  but  his  over-mastering  ambition 
and  self-sufficiency  ultimately  prove  his  ruin.  Even 
more  interesting  as  a  character  study  is  his  young 
wife,  Clo  Hading.  Less  gifted,  but  with  purer  mo- 
tives, she  attains  to  a  higher  degree  of  excellence, 
and  remains  uncontaminated  by  the  follies  of  the 
fashionable  world  in  which  her  husband's  success  has 
placed  her. 

GARDENHIRE,  SAMUEL  M.— "The  Long  Arm."  To- 
ronto :  The  Poole  Publishing-  Co.  Cloth,  $1.25.  An 
American  Sherlock  Holmes,  by  name  Le  Droit  Con- 
ners,  occupies  the  centre  of  the  stage  in  this  volume 
of  short  stories.  He  is  very  much  like  Sherlock,  pos- 
sibly a  trifle  more  rapid  in  his  deductions,  and  his 
exploits  are  chronicled  by  a  friend  who  parallels  Dr. 
Watson.  The  stories  are  all  absorbing,  some  like 
the  first,  "A  Brother  of  the  Heart,"  rather  ex- 
travagant, and  others  like  "The  Adventure  of  the 
Counterfeiters,"  quite  realistic.  There  are  eight 
stories  in  all. 

GLASGOW,  ELLEN.— "The  Wheel  of  Life."  Toronto  : 
The  Musson  Book  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  An  intense  and 
thrilling  story.  Tn  Laura  Wilde  the  author  has  laid 
bare,  with  wonderful  insight  the  workings  of  a  beau- 
tiful human  soul  in  its  struggles  upward  towards 
light  and  freedom  through  the  entanglements  of  the 
emotions  and  the  poetic  temperament.  She  finds 
both  at  last  in  self-renunciation  and  conformity  to 
the  Divine  Will.  The  other  characters  are  well  sus- 
tained and  interesting  in  the  parts  they  play,  but  the 
absorbing  interest  of  the  book  centres  in  the  heroine. 

HOLMES,  GORDON.— "The  Aencliffe  Puzzle."  Toronto  : 
McLeod  &  Allen.  Cloth,  $1.25;  paper,  75c.  A 
pleasing  story  with  a  good  plot  and  a  well  sustained 
mystery,  in  which  a  British  lawyer  and  a  Scotland 
Yard  detective  are  nearly  baffled  until  the  situation 
is  relieved  by  a  clever  American  amateur.  The  de- 
nouement is  concerned  with  the  happiness  of  two 
pairs  of  lovers  and  is  quite  conventional.  The  book 
contains  just  enough  of  horror  to  be  thrilling,  and 
just  enough  of  sentiment  and  humor  to  be  enter- 
taining. 

MKMORTALS    OF    BEV.    FREDERICK    WHITFIELD,-»- 

Edited  by  R.  S.  B.  Whitfield.  London  :  Chas.  J. 
Thynne.  Cloth,  2s.  6d.  The  simple  story  of  the  life 
of  an  Anglican  clergyman,    recently    deceased,   whose 


principal  work  was  done  at  Hastings.  His  was  a 
great  and  good  life,  and  his  name  will  be  perpetuated 
in  a  number  of  beautiful  hymns,   which  he  composed.

This  is  a  practical  handbook  for  investors  and  others 
which  treats  the  subject  of  Wall  street  investing  in  a 
simple  and  sensible  manner.  The  book  is  made  up  of 
ten  chapters  covering  all  sides  of  the  stock  and  bond 
question,  and  is  written  in  an  attractive  and  enter- 
taining style.  It  is  useful  to  almost  every  business 
man. 

NEWLANDS,  J.  C— "Voice  Production  and  the  Pho- 
netics of  Declamation."  Edinburgh  :  Oliphant,  An- 
derson &  Ferrier.  Cloth,  2s.  Gd  net.  A  valuable 
hand-book  for  the  embryo  public  speaker,  giving  in- 
structions that  will  aid  the  beginner  in  the  proper 
development  of  his  powers  of  oratory.  It  has  been 
prepared  by  a*  noted  lecturer  on  elocution  in  several 
Edinburgh  colleges. 

ORCZY,  BARONESS.— "The  Scarlet  Pimpernel."  To 
ronto  :  William  Briggs.  Cloth,  $1.25.  Taking  as 
their  badge  the  little  flower  of  the  scarlet  pimpernel, 
a  band  of  young  Englishmen  set  themselves  the  task 
of  saving  the  lives  of  French  aristocrats  doomed  to 
the  guillotine  in  the  days  of  the  Revolution.  The 
utmost  secrecy  is  preserved  and  the  identity  of  the 
daring  leader  carefully  concealed.  Not  until  the  book 
is  more  than  half  read  does  the  hero  emerge  from 
the  group  of  characters,  which  the  author  has  creat- 
ed. The  romance  is  intensely  exciting  from  first  to 
last. 

WHITE,  FRED.  M.— "The  Weight  of  the  Crown.  To- 
ronto :  McLeod  &  Allen.  Cloth,  $1.25  ;  paper,  75c. 
The  interest  of  this  story  centres  around  a  political 
game  played  between  the  English  Foreign  Office  and 
the  secret  agents  of  the  Russian  Government  for  the 
possession  of  a  small  kingdom  in  the  Balkans.  The 
Russian  agents  are  foiled,  the  King  of  Asturias  is 
killed  in  a  railway  accident  and  three  pairs  of  lovers 
are  made  happy  in  orthodox  fashion.  Intrigue, 
masquerading  and  rapid  action  characterize  this  very 
exciting  book. 


BOOKS  AND   STATIONERY  IN  THE  WEST  INDIES. 

MR.  F.  E.  PHELAN,  who  recently  returned  from  a 
trip  to  the  West  Indies,  has  many  interesting  ex- 
periences to  narrate.  Such  an  old  bookman  as 
he,  although  he  did  make  the  trip  solely  for  pleasure, 
could  not  help  but  to  observe  the  condition  of  the  book 
and  stationery  trade  on  the  islands.  Mr.  Phelan  says 
that  there  are  one  or  two  really  excellent  bookstores  in 
Kingston  and  St.  Thomas.  Altogether  there  are  not 
more  than  half  a  dozen  good  stores  scattered  over  the 
islands,  but  there  are  numerous  little  depots  where  every 
description  of  oddities  may  be  obtained,  and  in  these 
stores  a  few  books  and    magazines  are  often  kept  in  stock. 

In  the  one  or  two  larger  stores,  which  are  owned  by 
Englishmen,  the  stocks  are  fairly  large  and  well  kept. 
The  clerks,  who  are  natives,  are  extremely  polite,  and 
serve  customers  most  faithfully  all  the  time  they  are  in 
the  store.  Books,  periodicals  and  newspapers  from  New 
York,  Boston  and  other  places,  are  obtained  at  a  fairly 
early  date  after  publication — according  to  the  location 
of  the  town — in  some  cases  New  York  papers  are  ob- 
tainable three  days  after  date  of  publication. 

A  great  business  is  transacted  in  all  sorts  of  sou- 
venirs  during   the   tourist   season.

BARONESS  ORCZY,  t lie  talented  authoress  of  "The

a  Hungarian  by  birth  and  never  came  to  England  or 
spoke  a  word  of  English  until  she  was  fifteen.  She  is  the 
last  descendant  of  an  ancient  Hungarian  aristocratic  fam- 
ily. Early  developing  a  taste  for  art,  she  devoted  herself 
to  painting,  producing  some  pictures  which  were  deemed 
meritorious  enough  to  be  hung  in  the  Royal  Academy. 
While  studying  art  she  met  her  husband,  Mr.  Montagu 
Barstow,  likewise  an  artist.  Both  of  them  of  late  years 
have  done  considerable  work  for  the  magazines. 

It  was  only  six  years  ago  that  Baroness  Orczy  dis-

Baroness  Orczy's  latest  novel,  "A  Son  of  the  People,"

NEWS     COMPANY     SERVICE     IN     THE    WEST 


A  LETTER  from  a  subscriber  in  Wetaskiwin,  pub- 
lished elsewhere  in  this  issue,  raises  the  question 
of  the  character  of  the  service  given  western 
booksellers  and  newsdealers  by  the  Canadian  news  com- 
panies. Inquiry  among  the  trade  in  Winnipeg  reveals 
general  dissatisfaction  with  the  service  given,  although 
the  booksellers  freely  acknowledge  that  the  news  com- 
panies are  doing  their  best  with  inadequate  facilities  to 
supply  a  rapidly  growing  trade.  The  complaint  is  made 
that  there  are  delays  in  delivery  of  magazines  and  that 
it  is  impracticable  to  order  extra  supplies  of  any  maga- 
zine on  which  there  is  a  special  run  because  of  the  long 
delay  in  filling  orders.  In  fact,  the  leading  Winnipeg 
dealers  obtain  their  supplies  almost  entirely  from  New 
York  and  St.  Paul.  Undoubtedly  there  is  a  strong  feel- 
ing in  the  west  that  the  time  is  ripe  for  the  opening  in 
Winnipeg  of  a  branch  depot  of  a  Canadian  news  com- 
pany, or,  failing  that,  for  the  organization  of  a  dis- 
tinctively western  news  company,  with  headquarters  in 
Winnipeg.  It  would  be  no  surprise  to  Bookseller  and 
Stationer  to  learn  of  the  organization  of  such  a  com- 
pany at  an  early  date. 

But  while  the  trade  seem  unanimous  in  their  opinion 
that  the  opening  of  such  a  depot  in  Winnipeg  would  be 
a  great  convenience,  some  of  the  shrewdest  dealers  are 
doubtful  whether  the  enterprise  would  be  profitable. 
They  point  to  the  large  expense  of  maintaining  such  a 
branch  or  independent  concern  in  Winnipeg-,  and  consider 
it  doubtful  whether  the  field  is  yet  large  anough  to  war- 
rant the  expenditure.  The  general  feeling  seems  to  be 
that  the  Canadian  companies  would  establish  Winnipeg 
branches  if  they  considered  the  enterprise  profitable  and 
that  they  are  in  the  best  position  to  know.

W.  A.  Davis,  Winnipeg,  when  interviewed  on  the  sub- 
ject by  Bookseller  and  Stationer,  said  that  for  some 
time  he  had  almost  entirely  discontinued  buying  from 
the  Canadian  news  companies  because  of  irritating  and 
costly  delays  in  the  delivery  of  magazines. 

"I  am  buying  practically  all  my  magazines  now  in 
New  York,"  said  he,  "and  since  I  made  the  change  I 
have  had  very  little  trouble." 

"The  Canadian  service  is  not  satisfactory,"  he  con- 
tinued. "Take  th»  case  of  the  Delineators,  for  which  an 
eastern  news  company  are  sole  agents  in  Canada.  Of 
course  we  have  to  buy  our  Delineators  from  this  firm, 
and  what  do  we  find  ?  Very  often  it  happens  that  the 
Hudson's  Bay  Company  have  their  supply  a  week  before 
I  can  get  mine.  Now  that  isn't  right  or  fair.  The  Hud- 
son's Bay  Co.  are  agents  for  the  Delineator  patterns,  but 
they  are  not  agents  lor  the  magazines  and  the  ordinary 
book  stores  should  be  able  to  get  their  Delineator  mag-a- 
zines  as  soon  as  the  big-  department  store." 

"Did  you  have  any  trouble  in  getting  additional  sup- 
plies of  any  magazine  in  special  demand  ?'■'  Mr.  Davis 
was  asked. 

"Yes,  we  had  a  lot  of  trouble,"  was  the  reply. 
"Sometimes  it  would  take  two  or  three  weeks,  and  oc- 
casionally a  month,   to  get  a  new   supply.     I  find  I  can 


send  to  New  York  and  get  my  magazines  back  in  eight 
or  nine  days  at  most." 

"Would  you  favor  the  establishment  of  a  western 
news  company,  or  the  opeuing  of  a  branch  here  by  an 
eastern  house  ?" 

"It  would  be  a  great  convenience  to  have  a  whole- 
sale supply  here  in  Winnipeg,  but  I  doubt  if  the  country 
is  large  enough  to  make  the  enterprise 'profitable." 

Russell,  Lang  &  Co. 

Lisgar  R.  Lang,  when  questioned  on  the  matter  by 
Bookseller  and  Stationer,  said  that  his  firm  get  their 
magazines  in  St.  Paul.  A  Winnipeg  news  company 
would  be  a  great  convenience,  but  he  was  very  doubtful 
whether  it  would  be  a  paying  venture.  The  expense 
would  be  at  least  $4,000  per  year,  and  he  doubted 
whether  the  business  is  sufficiently  large  to  warrant  it. 

John  A  Hart     Co. 

John  A.  Hart  informed  Bookseller  and  Stationer 
that  he  gets  his  magazine  supplies  in  New  York.  He 
was  disposed  to  think  that  there  is  an  opening  for  a 
western  news  company.

foreign  member  of  the  Royal  Academy.  Another  feature 
of  the  number  will  be  a  story  by  Lawrence  Mott,  "One 
of  Three,"  depicting  the  life  of  the  trappers  and  Indians 
in   the  Canadian  wilds. 

Beginning  in  the  May  number  of  the  Canadian  Maga- 
zine will  be  the  first  of  a  series  of  six  articles  by  J.  E. 
B.  McC'ready,  editor  of  the  Daily  Guardian,  of  Charlotte- 
town,  under  the  title  of  "When  the  Dominion  was  Young." 
hi  the  May  number  will  be  found  "Nova  Scotia  and  Im- 
perialism" by  P.  Blake  Croft  on,  "Winning  a  Seat  in  the 
Imperial  House"  by  A.  C.  Forster  Boulton,  M.P.,  "One 
Hundred  Years  in  British  Columbia"  by  Harold  Sands, 
and  "The  Trent  Valley  Canal  Fishinjr  and  Shooting 
((rounds"  by  Harold  Sands. 

The  Educational  Monthly,  heretofore  published  by 
Morang  &  Company,  Limited,  Toronto,  has  passed  into 
the  hands  of  the  Educational  Publishing  Company,  36 
Shuter  street.  It  will  be  discontinued  by  the  new  pro- 
prietors and  a  new  journal,  the  Teachers'  World,  will  be 
published  in  its  place  about  May  15. 

In  the  May  issue  of  the  Atlantic  Monthly  will  be  found 
"Man  and  the  Actor"  by  Richard  Mansfield,  "Life  Insur- 
ance House-Cleaning"  by  C.  J.  Bullock,  "Camping  with

by  R.  W.  Child,  "Baedeker  in  the  Making"  by  J.  F.  Muir- 
head,  and  four  stories  as  well. 

The  noted  Canadian  soldier-engineer,  Sir  Percy 
Girouard,  will  contribute  an  important  article  on  "The 
Cape-to-Cairo  Route"  to  the  May  number  of  Scribner's 
Magazine.  This  will  be  the  second  paper  in  the  series  of 
the  "Railways  of  the  Future."  In  the  same  number  will 
be  found  "A  Corner  of  Normandy"  by  Madame  Wadding- 
ton,  "Vanishing  Indian  Types"  by  E.  S.  Curtis,  and

The  May  number  of  Lippincott's  Magazine  will  be  a 
humor  number.  In  "Marked  Mit  Cats"  by  Caroline  Lock- 
hart,  the  publishers  consider  that  they  have  the  funniest 
story  of  the  year.  Charles  Battell  Loomis  has  also  writ- 
ten a  laughable  advertising  tale  for  this  number.  In  it, 
too,  will  be  found  the  first  of  Lucy  Copinger's  humorous 
"Miss  Lucy"  sketches  and  Frederick  J.  Burnett's  delight- 
ful "Adventures  of  the  White  Carnation."  The  novelette 
is  a  detective  yarn  by  Dr.  Monroe  Hopkins,  entitled  '"The 
Strange  Case  of  Doctor  North." 

A  novel  and  striking  cover,  that  is  so  unusual  as  to 
be  almost  impossible  to  describe,  renders  the  cover  of  the 
April  Royal  unique.  A  window-full  of  these  red  and  black 
covers   would   make  a  strong  display. 

Fourteen  beautiful  illustrations  of  the  work  of  J.  C. 
Dollman,  A.R.W.S.,  appear  in  the  first  pages  of  the  April 
Windsor.  This  art  feature  in  the  Windsor  is  one  of  its 
strongest  points.  Anthony  Hope's  serial,  "Sophy  of  Kra- 
vonia,"  is  still  appearing,  as  well  as  a  series  of  stories 
in  the  life  of  Ulysses  McCleod,   by  Justus  Miles  Forman. 

A  juvenile's  life  of  Robert  Louis  Stevenson  is  to  be 
found  in  the  April  number  of  St.  Nicholas,  told  most  en- 
tertainingly by  Ariadne  Gilbert.  In  the  same  number  ap- 
pears a  sketch  by  Charles  C.  Johnson  of  the  manual  train- 
ing and  physical  culture  taught  in  New  York  public 
schools. 

Among  the  illustrations  in  the  April  World  To-Day 
are  a  series  of  pictures,  "In  Maple  Sugar  Time,"  and  ex- 
cellent portraits  of  Andrew  Carnegie,  Grover  Cleveland 
and  Joseph  G.  Cannon.

CATERING  TO  SCHOOLS. 

A  COMMON  incident  in  many  Canadian  towns  is  to 
see  some  city  school  supply  house  come  along  and 
get  the  local  business  in  maps,  crayons  and  other  neces- 
saries. Beacuse  they  haVe  the  latest  goods,  know  their 
business,  are  familiar  with  school  affairs  and  give 
prompt  attention  to  orders,  they  are  found  highly  satis- 
factory,  and  having  secured  business  once  they  retain  it. 

Meanwhile  the  local  dealer  sits  calmly  by,  apparent- 
ly quite  indifferent  as  to  the  loss  of  his  custom.  He  may 
rail  at  the  school  people,  may  call  them  traitors  to  the 
interests  of  their  tow-n,  and  may  make  dire  threats  of 
revenge,  but  as  for  stepping  forth  from  behind  his  counter 
and  repairing  the  injury,  such  a  thought  never  seems  to 
enter  his  mind. 

There  is  a  good  deal  of  wisdom  in  that  old  remark 
of  the  Mohammedan  prophet,  "If  the  mountain  won't 
come  to  Mahomet,  then  Mahomet  will  go  to  the  Moun- 
tain." Applied  to  the  supply  trade  it  will  be  found  very 
helpful.  If  the  school  authorities  won't  come  to  the 
dealer,  then  it  is  up  to  the  dealer  to  go  to  the  school 
authorities.  The  other  fellow  from  the  city  does  that. 
He  comes  along  with  his  interesting  proposition  and  lie 
gets  the  business. 

Now,  lest  we  may  be  accused  of  talking  generalities, 
let  us  cite   a   particular     instance     where    a    wide  awake 


local  dealer  may  do  some  business.  There  is  a  new  map 
oi  Canada  just  out,  showing  the  new  provinces  and  the 
new  railways.  It  is  complete  in  every  respect  and  right 
up  to  date.  Every  school  should  have  one  of  these  maps 
and  every  school  will  possess  one  sooner  or  later.  The 
question  is  :  Who  will  sell  this  map  ?  We  believe  if  the 
local  dealer  will  only  get  after  the  school  authorities  and 
tell  them  about  the  map,,  he  should  have  no  difficulty  in 
placing  one. 


AN  IMPORTANT  DECISION. 

FOR.  a  great  many  years  past  it  has  been  the  custom 
of  French-Canadian  publishers  to  appropriate  the 
works  of  French  authors  and  bring  them  out  in  Canadian 
editions,  without  paying  any  attention  whatever  to  copy- 
right. The  smallness  of  the  market  and  the  insignifi- 
cance of  these  pirated  editions  have  led  French  publish- 
ers and  authors,  up  to  the  present  time,  to  ignore  the 
theft. 

But  the  evil  was  not  to  go  any  longer  unchecked. 
Last  year  the  Parisian  Syndicate  determined  to  make 
an  example  of  the  pirates.  M.  Mary,  a  noted  French 
novelist,  was  induced  to  bring  suit  against  Le  Com- 
pagnie  de  Reproduction  Litteraire,  of  Montreal,  for  the 
unauthorized  publication  of  one  of  his  works,  "Tante 
Berceuse."  In  January  the  case  came  up  before  Mr. 
Justice  Fortin,  in  the  Superior  Court,  and  was  argued 
by  Mr.  Aime  (Jeoffrion,  K.C.,  for  k  the  prosecution,  and 
Mr.  Pierre  Beullac  for  the  defendants. 

Judgment  was  handed  out  by  Mr.  Justice  Fortin  on 
the  23rd  ult.  The  learned  judge  ruled  that  England  be- 
ing one  of  the  contracting  nations  at  the  convention  at 
Berne,  the  international*  copyright  law  was  applicable  to 
all  the  British  colonies,  and  that,  consequently,  the 
plaintiff  was  protected  in  Canada,  although  he  had  not 
conformed  with  the  requirements  of  the  Canadian  copy- 
right law. 


A  SUGGESTION  TO  BOOKSELLERS. 

READERS  of  this  journal,  especially  those  who  sell 
books,  are  naturally  interested  in  the  list  of  best- 
selling  books  which  appears  monthly  in  the  Book- 
seller and  Stationer.  This  list  is  compiled  from  returns 
sent  in  by  dealers  in  the  larger  centres  of  the  country, 
and  gauges  fairly  closely  the  condition  of  the  Canadian 
book  market. 

The  Bookman,  published  in  New  York,  originated 
this  scheme  several  years  ago,  and  its  list  is  accepted  as 
the  authoritative  list  for  the  United  States.  The  Book- 
man's list  is  quoted  very  extensively  in  the  American 
press,  and  many  people  do  their  reading  of  current  fic- 
tion under  its  guidance. 

It  would  be  to  the  advantage  of  Canadian  booksellers 
if  they  would  see  that  the  Canadian  list  is  given  as  wide 
a  publicity  as  pcfssible.  Apart  from  the  fact  that  our 
summary  of  best  sellers  for  the  Dominion  is  an  interest- 
ing news  item,  and  consequently  of  value  to  the  press, 
booksellers  who  advertise  have  a  right  to  ask  their  local 
papers  to   insert  it.

BOOKSELLER    AND     STATIONER 


WHAT  DENNISON  IS  DOING. 

IF  every  concern  adopted  the  methods  followed  by  the 
Dennison     Manufacturing     Company,    the    path    of    the 

stationer  would  be  a  rosy  one.  Here  is  a  company 
that  actually  creates  new  lines  of  business,  putting;  their 
time,  energy  and  money  into  real  development.  First 
they  invented  the  shipping  tag,  after  which  they  sought 
new  uses  for  it,  until  to-day  Dennison's  tags  are  known 
and  used  the  world  over  not  only  for  shipping  but  in  a 
thousand  different  ways,  most  of  which  were  perfected  by 
Dennison. 

In  the  same  way  Dennison's  crepe  paper  was  originat- 
ed. At  first  the  possibilities  of  this  material  were  not 
understood  and  its  use  was  limited.  In  ordinary  hands  it 
would  probably  have  been  hut  a  passing  fad,  but  not  so 
under  Dennison  direction.  Expert  decorators  were  em- 
ployed, artists  retained,  money  lavishly  spent  in  creating 
new  uses  for  crepe  paper,  until  now  it  represents  an  in- 
dustry in  which  every  stationer  is  interested. 

The  passe-partout  method  of  framing  pictures  was  al- 
so a  Dennison  creation.  By  demonstration,  by  the  printed 
word,  it's  merits  were  made  known  until  there  is  hardly 
a  home  in  the  land  the  walls  of  which  are  not  graced  with 
pictures  framed  with  Dennison's  passe-partout  binding. 

So  it  was  with  crepe  paper  napkins.  A  few  years  ago 
all  the  paper  napkins  used  in  this  country— and  they  were 
comparatively  few— came  from  Japan.  To-day  there  is 
hardly  a  retailer  who  does  not  handle  quantities  of  Denni- 
son's crepe  paper  napkins,  the  sale  running  so  far  into  the 
millions  tha't  it  is  almost  beyond  belief. 

Such  success  as  this  can  only  come  where  there  is  a 
determined  disposition  to  help  the  dealer,  the  real  clear- 
ing house  for  every  article  manufactured.  If  there  was 
any  doubt  about  this  being  the  policy  of  the  Dennison 
Manufacturing  Company,  it  would  be  quickly  dispelled  by 
the  enormous  amount  of  money  they  are  now  spending  in 
advertising.  All  the  magazines  of  importance  are  carrying 
full-page  announcements  of  an  educational  character,  the 
object  befng  to  dispense  free  literature  and  thus  increase 
the  consumption  of  the  Dennison  goods. 

One  noticeable  thing  about  this  advertising  is  its  re- 
ference to  the  dealer.  Every  effort  is  made  to  direct  the 
purchaser  to  the  retail  store,  so  that  every  dealer  who 
handles  the  Dennison  goods  may  be  benefited. 

Furthermore,  all  the  replies  to  the  Dennison  advertis- 
ing, numbering  over  a  thousand  a  day,  are  immediately 
turned  over  to  the  dealers  in  the  town  from  which  they 
are  received,  the  inquirer  being  directed  to  the  nearest 
dealer. 


PERSONAL 
GOSS  IP 

A  NEW  INK  MANUFACTURING    FIRM. 

MONTREAL  has  a  new  industry  in  the  Canadian  Ink 
Manufacturing  Company,  37  Wellington  street, 
which  recently  opened  a  factory.  The  firm  is  com- 
posed of  Messrs.  J.  L.  P.  Barrie  and  Andrew  Gorrie. 
Their  specialty  will  be  the  manufacture  of  inks  for  com- 
mercial and  other  purposes,  but  it  is  their  intention  to 
manufacture  also  carbon  papers,  mucilage  and  other  sta- 
tionery lines  of  like  nature.  Samples  have  been  sent  out 
to  the  trade  of  blue  black  writing,  blue  black  copying  and 
red  inks.  These  inks  are  manulactured  on  an  entirely  new 
and  scientific  principle,  and  the  firm  guarantees  their 
worth.  The  inks  are  free  from  any  sediment  or  dust,  and 
will  not  thicken.  The  blue  black  copying  will  five  from 
three  to  five  first-class  copies  which  will  last  forever.  The 
prices  of  all  the  inks  compare  favorably  with  those  of 
other  manufacturers  and  may  be  obtained  for  the  asking. 
Samples  are  also  sent  on  request. 


Mr.    A.    M.    Clarke,    representing*   the    Dennison    Manu- 
factusing    Co.,    with    Canadian    headquarters    at    Montreal, 
left  that  city  the  beginning  of  April   for  his  Western  On- 
tario ground. 

Mr.  John  Morgan  has  just  started  out  for  a  tour  of 
Ontario  in  the  interests  of  Raphael  Tuck  &  Sons  Co., 
Limited.  He  carries  a  full  line  of  the  Tuck  goods  for 
holiday    trade. 

Mr.  "Jack"  Hill,  representing  the  Dodge  Publishing 
Company,  of  New  York,  has  been  showing  his  firm's 
goods  in  Toronto  recently.  He  returned  to  New  York 
on  the  7th  inst. 

Messrs.  John  Allan  and  .J.  B.  Fraser  are  working 
Montreal,  Quebec  and  Ottawa  tandem,  in  the  interests  of 
Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter.  They  carry  complete  lines  of 
the   firm's   import   fancy  goods. 

Mr.  Lome  Twiss,  who  has  been  in  charge  of  the 
sample  room  at  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Toronto,  has 
gone  to  Winnipeg  to  join  the  company's  western  traveler, 
Mr.  H.  C.  Woods,  and  to  assist  him  in  showing  import 
fancy  goods. 

It  is  a  popular  trio  who  are  showing  the  people  of 
the  Maritime  Provinces  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter's  im- 
port fancy  goods— Messrs.  George  Hazen,  Douglas  Biggs 
and  Edward  Hazen.  According  to  latest  advices  they 
were  sojourning  in  Fredericton,  N.B. 

Mr.  George  Macdonald,  who  has  for  some  time  been* 
in  charge  of  the  school-book  department  of  W.  J.  Gage 
&  Company,  Toronto,  has  resigned,  and  will  go  into 
business  for  himself  in  the  Northwest.  He  has  not  yet 
decided  where  to  locate,  but  it  will  probably  be  Calgary 
or  Edmonton. 

The  English  agencies  held  for  so  many  years  by  the 
late  W.  Macpherson,  Toronto,  nave  been  transferred  to 
Mr.  Hector  Prenter,  who  has  been  for  over  twenty  years 
in  the  employ  of  Hart  &  Riddell,  Toronto,  and  who  re- 
ceived his  early  training  in  the  famous  house  of  Marcus 
Ward  &  Co.,  Belfast,  Ireland. 

Among  the  out-of-town  buyers  noticed  in  Toronto 
during  the  last  few  days  were  Messrs.  James  I.  Ander- 
son, London  ;  R.  S.  Porter,  Lindsay  ;  R.  J.  Soden, 
Peterboro  ;  Geo.  Moore,  Parry  Sound  ;  R.  McLaughlin. 
St.  Thomas  ;  F.  J.  Weaver,  Berlin  ;  F.  H.  Chappb\ 
Gait  ;  R.  J.  Craig,  Cobourg,  and  W.  H.  Kerfoot, 
Smith's  Falls. 

Mr.  James  Eshelby,  late  of  the  firm  of  C.  L.  Nellcs. 
of  Guelph,  stationery  and  wall  paper,  has  joined  tin- 
staff  of  A.  H.  Stratton  &  Co.,  Peterboro.  Mr.  Eshelby 
is  a  wall  paper  expert  and  thoroughly  understands  the 
book  trade.  Mr.  Stratton,  it  is  said,  intends  to  extend 
his  jobbing  business,  and  Mr.  Eshelby.  in  addition  to  his 
other  duties,  will  look  after  the  outside  trade. 

The  Art  Emporium,  2255  St.  Catherine  street,  Mont- 
real, had  an  interesting  and  instructive  exhibit  of  crepe 
papers  the  first  two  weeks  in  April.  The  demonstration 
took  the  form  of  the  possibilities  of  making  the  heme 
beautiful  by  the  judicious  use  of  crepe  paper.  The  ex-  ■ 
hibit  was  put  in  by  the  Dennison  Mfg.  Co.,  and  a  young 
lady  from  New  York  was  in  charge.  The  ingenious  air- 
ship and  a  Japanese  kimona  were  the  two  most  notable 
features.  The  move  is  in  keeping  with  the  efforts  of 
Dennison's  to  benefit  the  retail  stationer'.

THE  PRIVATE  CHRISTMAS  GREETING   CARD. 

By  Thomas  E.  Menzies,  Manager  of  Meuzies  &  Co.,  Toronto. 

LAST  year  showed  a  most  gratifying  increase  over 
former  years  in  the.  private  Christmas  greeting  card 
business,  and  even  at  this  early  date,  before  sam- 
ples of  general  Christmas  cards,  calendars  and  pictures 
are  on  the  road,  numerous  inquiries  for  samples  and 
quite  a  few  record  sized  stock  orders  have  been  received 
by  the  manufacturers  and  jobbers. 

It  has  been  pointed  out  before,  and  one  can  easily 
figure  it  out,  that  certain  ways  of  handling  the  private 
Christmas  card  business  are  of  doubtful  profit,  no  matter 
what  the  percentage  may  be.     For  instance  : 

(1.)  To  stock  only  cheap  cards,  listing  under  $10 
per  hundred  retail. 

(2.)  Selling  at  less,  than  50  per  cent,  profit  over  all 
cost. 

(3.)  Compressing  the  business  into  the  two  or  three 
weeks  before  Christmas,  when  it  requires  all  your  time 
to  sell  staple  Christmas  lines  and  general  Christmas 
cards,   calendars,   etc. 

(4.)  Having  no  one  in  particular  looking  after  this 
particular  business,  thereby  causing  worry  to  every  clerk 
in  the  establishment,  as  well  as  considerable  vexation  of 
spirit,  and  ofttimes  profanity,  on  the  part  of  the  cus- 
tomer (we  exclude  the  ladies  here)  when  disappointed 
as  to  time  of  delivery  or  detail. 

On  the  other  hand,  I  respectfully  submit  a  few  sugges- 
tions, and  I  am  writing  now  for  the  stationer  who 
wishes,  to  make  the  private  Christmas  greeting  card 
trade  a  profitable  venture  and  a  permanent  branch  of  his 
business,  not  for  the  dealer  who  grudgingly  orders  thirty 
dollars  worth  because  he  knows  he  must  have  them,  and 
piously  inserts  the  parenthesis  that  he  only  hopes  he 
may  get  rid  of  them  all. 

Order  early  for  stock  and  order  with  an  eye  to  har- 
mony as  well  as  assortment. 

Make  up  a  sample  book  that  enhances  the  appear- 
ance of  the  cards,  both  by  reason  of  the  arrangement 
and  the  appearance  of  the  scrap  book. 

Make  a  feature  of  your  expensive  cards  ;  use  the 
cheap  cards  more  as  a  foil.  It  has  been  demonstrated 
that  selling  cheap  cards  only  does  not  actually  result  in 
a  profit,  and  it  ruins  the  business. 

Most  important  of  all,  start  the  business  early.  T 
can  best  advance  this  suggestion  by  stating  that  many 
of  our  biggest  customers  are  often  the  small  stationers, 
who  send  outy  their  salesman  off  and  on  during  the  Sum- 
mer and  Autumn  months  with  his  book  of  samples,  when 
he  can  easily  be  spared  from  the  store,  and  in  this  way 
secures  business  that  would  not  otherwise  materialize. 

Moreover,  it  has  been  proved  by  experience  that  the 
high  priced  cards  (i.e.,  25,  30,  40  and  50  cents  apiece) 
are  more  easily  sold  early  in  the  year  when  payment 
seems  distant,  than  at  the  last  moment,  when  Christ- 
mas expenditure  has  become  a  nightmare. 

A  circular  letter  is  an  excellent  help,  and  a  few 
handsome  show  cards  distributed  about  the  store  also 
brings  the  matter  to  the  customer's  mind  early  in  the 
season. 


I  am  glad  to  note  that  the  west  has  taken  the  pri- 
vate card  business  up  in  the  right  way.  Last  year 
nothing  was  too  good  for  them,  while  few,  if  any,  cheap 
lines  were  ordered  in  privates. 

The  private  Christmas  card  business  is  just  catching 
on  as  a  universal  custom.  Ten  years  hence  will  still 
find  its  popularity  on  the  increase,  and  the  stationer  who 
leaves  it  out  of  his  campaign  is  simply  losing  money. 


TUCK    LINES    FOR    CANADA. 

WITHIN  the  next  few  weeks  Canadian  stationers 
and  fancy  goods  dealers  will  have  an  opportunity 
of  inspecting  the  1906-1907  line  of  Christmas  and 
New  Year  cards,  calendars,  pictorial  post  cards,  toy 
books,  etc.,  which  Raphael  Tuck  &  Sons  Co.,  Limited, 
have  prepared  for  the  holiday  trade.  Their  travelers  are 
just  starting  out  to  cover  the  Dominion,  each  carrying 
a   most   comprehensive   line   of   samples. 

As  usual,  the  new  and  elaborate  productions  of  the 
firm  are  so  numerous  as  to  render  a  detailed  descrip- 
tion impossible.  In  the  space  of  this  article  attention 
can  only  be  drawn  to  a  few  of  the  more  striking  novel- 
ties. 

A  series  of  celluloid  cards  in  a  variety  of  sizes  gives 
scope  for  an  elaborate  floral  treatment,  producing  rich 
effects.  The  cards  are  folded,  containing  inserts  bearing 
greetings  and  holiday  verses. 

For  the  purchaser  of  six  or  more  cards,  the  series  of 
boxed  cards  will  be  hailed  as  a  boon.  Six,  eight,  nine, 
ten  or  twelve  cards  are  to  be  had,  enclosed  in  a  dainty 
box,  bearing  a  design  in  harmony  with  the  general 
scheme  of  the  cards.  The  price  is  so  arranged  as  to  be 
practically  uniform,  irrespective  of  the  quantity  in  the 
box. 

"The  World's  Masterpieces"  calendar  is  a  clever 
conception.  Each  day  of  the  year  the  fortunate  posses- 
sor of  this  calendar  can  gaze  on  a  different  artistic  gem, 
there  being  365  pictures  in  all.  A  blank  space  for 
"engagements"  appears  at  the  bottom  of  each  page. 

Upon  "The  Fool's  Calendar"  it  is  said  that  Sidney 
Drew  has  been  engaged  for  three  years,  with  splendid  re- 
sults. The  design  is  a  picture  of  an  old-time  jester,  be- 
neath which  hangs  the  calendar  pad.  For  each  day  of 
the  year  there  is  a  clever  little  sketch,  accompanied  by 
a  witty  saying.  The  popularity  of  this  calendar  seems 
to  be  guaranteed  at  the  outset. 

Among  the  regular  Christmas  lines  the  Gem  pend- 
ants are  noteworthy  as  being  a  new  conception,  combin- 
ing in  a  novel  and  attractive  way  the  booklet  and  the 
Christmas  card. 

A  calendar  that  is  bound  to  attract  attention  has  an 
outer  cover  with  an  opening  just  the  size  to  frame  the 
various  colored  pictures  inside.  This  g-ivps  the  effect  of 
a  framed  picture.  When  the  possessor  wishes  to  con- 
sult the  calendar  the  cover  can  be  lifted.  For  a  lady's 
desk  this  will  be  a  choice  number.

Easter  BusinessOccupying  Attentionof  Retailers  at  Present- 
Several  New  Books  Noticed — Personals 
of  Interest  to  the  Trade. 

Office  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer, 

232  McGill  Street,  Montreal. 

April  5,  1906. 

EASTER  trade  is  occupying  the  attention  of  book- 
sellers and  stationers  here  at  present,  and  many 
Easter  cards,  books,  etc.,  are  being  displayed. 
Much  better  business  is  expected  this  year  than  was 
transacted  during  the  same  season  last  year,  and  in  con- 
sequence Easter  stocks  have  received  particular  atten- 
tion. The  modes  of  display  adopted  to  attract  the 
Easter  trade  are  many  and  varied.  Each  store  is  mak- 
ing a  specialty  of  some  line.  Prayer  books,  bibles,  and 
hymn  books  are  featured  by  many.  Most  have  a  large 
table  display  of  Easter  cards  and  illustrated  post  cards 
suitable  to  the  season,  within  the  store,  and  the  tying 
up  of  handsome  leather-bound  books  with  colored  rib- 
bons is  practiced  by  nearly  all  bookstores.  These  rib- 
bons are  of  various  colors,  and  the  words  "Easter 
Greetings"  are  generally  inscribed  upon  them.  A  book 
fixed  up  in  this  manner  is  very  much  in  demand,  as  it 
makes  a  very  dainty  gift. 


Several  new  books  have  found  their  way  onto  the 
counters  of  Montreal  bookstores  during  the  past  month. 
All  of  these  have  met  with  a  more  or  less  good  sale.  In- 
deed one  of  them,  "Hearts  and  Creeds,"  heads  the  list 
of  best  sellers.  The  authoress  of  this  book  is  Anna 
Chapin  Ray,  who  wrote  "In  the  Shrine  of  Good  St. 
Anne,"  and  this,  and  the  fact  that  the  book  deals  with 
a  burning  question  in  this  province,  will  tend  to  make 
it  a  good  seller. 

*  *  * 

Among  the  other  new  books  a  new  one  by  Morley 
Roberts,  "The  Idlers,"  has  enjoyed  a  very  good  sale. 
"Saints  in  Society,"  "The  Mayor  of  Troy,"  and  "The 
Lady  Noggs,"  are  regarded  as  coming  good  books.  The 
Copp,  Clark  Co.  have  published  a  beautiful  book  by  E. 
B.  Greenshields,  of  this  city,  "Landscape  Painting  and 
Modern  Dutch  Artists."     It  is  selling. well. 


Montreal  booksellers  have  received  a  circular  letter 
from  a  large  American  magazine  publishing  house,  in 
which  the  latter  i  state  that  dealers  will  have  to  make 
some  new  arrangements  to  meet  the  action  of  the  Cana- 
dian post  office  authorities,  who  have  seen  fit  to  with- 
draw the  second-class  matter  privilege  whereby  Ameri- 
can houses  have  been  able  to  send  their  magazines  into 
Canada  at  the  rate  of  a  cent  a  pound  postage.  By  the 
new  regulations  postage  will  cost  six  cents  a  pound.  As 
the  magazines  mentioned  in  the  circular  retail  at  ten 
cents,  it  would  be  necessary  then  to  sell  them  at  fifteen 
cents,  which  it  is  not  deemed  would  be  a  wise  policy. 
To  offset  the  changes  in  postage,  however,  dealers  will 
hereafter  receive  these  magazines  by  express.

The   window   displays   of  the   Harmsworth   Self  Edu- 
cator  which    were    seen    in    two    or   three   uptown     book- 


stores during  March  attracted  much  favorable  comment. 
The  displays  were  a  credit  both  to  the  retailers  and  to 
the  Harmsworth  people,  who  supplied  the  necessary 
books,  posters,  etc.,  required  for  the  dressing  of  the 
window. 

•  •  * 

Paper  editions  of  the  latest  fiction  are  selling  well. 
Many  stores  are  making  a  special  display  of  these,  and 
are  giving  such  books  a  share  of  newspaper  advertising. 

•  *  * 

Mr.  E.  M.  Renouf  reports  a  very  good  sale  of  the 
pamphlet  he  published,  "Science  and  Religion,"  by  E. 
W.  McBride.  This  is  an  address  which  was  delivered  by 
Mr.  McBride  before  the  McGill  Y.M.C.A.  Mr.  Renouf  has 
issued  a  couple  of  very--  handsome  catalogues.  They  are 
neatly  prepared  and  profusely  illustrated.

Mr  Foster  Brown,  who  recently  underwent  a  serious 
operation,  is  almost  entirely  recovered,  and  is  able  to 
get  down  to  his  store  every  day  now. 

•  *  * 

Mr.  R.  J.  Soden,  of  Peterboro,  and  Mr.  Stevens,  of 
Ottawa,  both  of  them  booksellers  and  stationers,  were 
in  Montreal  on  business  the  latter  part  of  March.

Mr.  E.  J.  Kastner,  manager  of  the  L.  E.  Waterman 
Company,  of  Canada,  Limited,  is  expected  back  from 
Europe  the  middle  of  this  month.

Mr.  W.  R.  Houston,  of  Toronto,  editor  of  the  Cana- 
dian Financial  Review,  and  the  "Directory  of  Directors 
in  Canada,"  was  in  the  city  for  a  few  days  week  of 
March  12.

EASTER  novelties  are  being  featured  by  John  A. 
Hart  Co.,  Russell,  Lang  &>  Co.,  W.  A.  Davis,  and  one 
or  two  other  stores.  Results  seem  to  be  favorable, 
although  the  goods  have  been  displayed  only  a  few  days. 
March  business  has  been  fairly  active  for  the  season  of 
the  year,  but  none  of  the  local  stores  have  been  excep- 
tionally busy.  Following  the  special  sales  in  February, 
trade  has  been  of  moderate  volume. 

•  *  * 

The     recent     visit  to   Winnipeg  of  Dr.   W.   11.    Drum 
mond  gavt    the  local  stores  a  good  opportunity   to   push 
the   sale   of   the    "Habitant"    sketches.      The   books   were 
prominently  displayed  and  results   were   satisfactory. 

•  *  • 

Blackwood  &  Hagel  have  moved  from  their  location 
on  the  corner  of  Portage  avenue  and  Main  street  to  a 
store  on  Main  street  near  the  C.P.R.  tracks.  The  stores 
on  the  corner  of  Main  and  Portage  are  to  be  removed  to 
make  room  for  a  new  office  building. 

•  *  * 

"When  It  Was  Dark"  and  "St.  Cuthbert's"  seem  to 
be  the  best  sellers  among  the  new  fiction.

Personal  information  for  the  guidance  of  buyers  of  stationery  and  fancy  goods,  especially  procured  by 

"The  Monthly   Visitor." 


This  useful  loose-leaf  device  is  the  product  of 
the  C.  E.  Sheppard  Co.,  80  Maiden  Lane,  New  York. 
It  consists  of  a  two-piece  metal  back — oxidized  or 
nickeled — to  which  is  attached  two  strong  board  covers 
attractively  bound  in  corduroy  and  russia  leather,  mak- 
ing a  pleasing  and  durable  binder.  It  is  constructed 
with  a  screw     mechanism,     and     is   the  latest  improved

model  of  a  loose-leaf  ledger.  It  is  made  on  an  entirely 
new  and  original  principle.  One  of  the  most  important, 
things  about  this  new  book  is  the  fact  that  it  has  direct 
power — the  motion  is  regular  and  there  is  no  lost  power 
or  unnecessary  mechanism. 

The  power  is  applied  to  the  leaves  by  means  of  a 
screw  which  operates  a  plate  in  which  slots  run  diagon- 
ally. The  upper  and  lower  bars  in  which  the  posts  are 
riveted  are  connected , with  the  slots  in  the  plate  by 
means  of  metal  pieces  called  lugs.  It  can  readily  be 
seen  that  the  power  is  applied  from  the  screw  directly 
to  the  sheet  without  any  lost  motion,  and  as  there  is 
no  greater  method  of  transmitting  power  than  by  a 
screw,  it  is  easy  to  understand  why  the  leaves  could  not 
be  held  any  tig-fiter  than  the  mechanism  of  the  Imperial 
will  hold  them. 

The  leaves  in  the  Imperial  ledger  are  held  in  perfect 
alignment  when  the  book  is  expanded,  by  the  posts — 
5-16  inch  in  diameter — which  are  so  placed  in  the  top 
and  bottom  bars  as  to  bring  two  large  and  two  small 
posts   in  each  bar. 

The  leaves  always  have  a  bearing-  on  the  large  posts, 
but  when  the  binder  is  in  use  the  power  applied  brings 
such  pressure  on  the  sheets  that  they  can  in  no  way 
work  loose  and  get  out  of  alignment.  A  test  was  made 
with  this  ledger,  and  the  sheets  were  held  in  the  book  by 
the  pressure  without   any  posts. 


I  noticed  some  new  papeteries  in  the  sample  room 
on  Front  street,  Toronto,  of  W.  ■!.  Gage  &  Co.,  which 
are  worthy  of  special  note. 

The  LONSDALE.— This  is  put  up  with  deckle-edged 
paper  and  envelopes,  kid  finish,  in  the  Royal  size,  and  is 
the  first  deckle-edged  papeterie  turned  out  by  this  firm. 
This   is   a    very   aristocratic   number   and   is   most   taste- 


fully put-  up  in  a  box  of  heraldic  design.     This  line  will 
retail  at  50c. 

The  MAPLE  LEAF  LINEN.— Another  particularly 
attractive  papeterie  to  retail  at  25c,  made  in  cloth- 
finish  paper,  Oxford  size,  with  wallet  flap  envelopes.  One 
special  feature  of  the  stock  used  in  the  contents  is  that 
each  sheet  is  water-marked  with  maple  leaves,  making  it 
a  particularly  Canadian  article.  The  design  on  the  box 
is  also  brought  out  in  maple  leaves  done  in  colors,  and 
I  think  this  line  is  one  which  will  appeal  to  the  trade 
very  largely. 

The  ULSTER  LINEN— This  papeterie  has  been  got 
up  by  W.  J.  Gage  &  Co.  as  a  leader,  to  retail  at  15c, 
and  as  such  it  is  bound  to  have  a  very  large  sale.  It 
contains  24  sheets  of  fabric-finished  white  paper  in  either 
octavo  or  Oxford  sizes,  and  24  envelopes  to  match,  and 
is  handsomely  boxed  with  embossed  gold  and  colored 
labels.  Boxes  at  this  price  have  been  on  the  market 
containing  18  sheets  and  18  envelopes,  but  here  you  get 
one   full   count.

Holiday  papeteries  are  now  being  shown   by   Buntin. 

Gillies  &  Co.,  Limited,   of  Hamilton.  Their  assortment 
is   very   attractive   and   should   interest   most    stationers. 

They  have  none   that   retail  for  fancy  prices,   contenting 

themselves  with  an  excellent  range  of  the  popular-priced

The  store  has  a  frontage  of  70  feet  on  Yonge  street, 
with  156  feet  on  Temperance  street,  giving  unlimited  op- 
portunities for  attractive  display.  Its  dignified  store

Corner  in  Stationery  Department.  Ryrie  Bros.,  Limited. 


The  history  of  the  rise  of  Ryrie  Bros,  from  humble 
beginnings  is  an  interesting  one.  Starting  business  some 
thirty-five  years  ago  in  a  little  store  on  the  east  side  of 
Yonge  street,  the  two  brothers  by  dint  of  hard  work 
and  persistent  advertising  soon  expanded  their  business 
to  the  full  capacity  of  the  store,  and  were  compelled  to 
take  in  an  adjoining  store  to  accommodate  their  increas- 
ing stock.  In  time  the  double  store  became  too  small 
and  negotiations  were  entered  into  for  the  lease  of  a 
store  on  the  north-west  corner  of  Adelaide  and  Yonge 
streets.  Subsequent  enlargements  both  to  west  and 
north  gave  them  the  fine  large  store  from  which  they  re- 


fire  alarm  system,  its  telephone  switchboard  with  twenty- 
four  long  distance  'phones  from  the  various  depart- 
ments, its  handsome  offices  where  the  click  of  the  al- 
most miraculous  adding  machines,  the  ever  welcome 
sound  of  the  pneumatic  cash  carrying  system,  and  the 
familiar  voice  of  the  typewriters  sound  like  the  buzzing 
of  a  busy  beehive,  are  all  features  that  make  the  store 
one  of  unusual  attractiveness. 

Nothing  has  been  overlooked  that  could  tend  to  make 
Diamond  Hall  a  pleasure  to  those  who  visit  it  and  those 
who  labor  in  it.  In  the  basement  are  to  be  found  the 
receiving   rooms,     the      shipping   rooms,    the   department

NEED  OF  WESTERN  NEWS  CO. 
Editor  Bookseller  and  Stationer, — I  beg  to  trespass 
on  your  time  for  a  few  moments  to  present  to  your  no- 
tice a  subject  of  importance  to  western  booksellers  and 
newsdealers,  and  which  I  would  like  to  see  discussed  in 
some  future  number  of  your  valuable  paper,  namely,  the 
establishing  of  a  western  news  company.  A  few  years 
ago  no  doubt  the  eastern  news  companies  were  quite 
capable  of  handling  the  western  business.  But  times 
have  changed,  the  west  has  grown,  and  is  still  growing 
at  a  tremendous  pace,  and  it  behooves  the  newsdealers 
of  the  west  to  keep  in  step  with  the  advance.     The  east- 


ern news  companies  are  no  longer  able  to  do  justice  to 
the  needs  of  the  western  newsdealers,  and  it  is  up  to  us 
to  find  some  solution  of  the  difficulty. 

As  conditions  are  at  present,  our  parcels  of  maga- 
zines are  often  days  late  in  reaching  us,  and  occasionally 
lost  in  transit.  With  a  western  news  company  estab- 
lished at  some  central  point— Winnipeg,  Regina,  or  even 
as  far  west  as  Calgary--much  of  this  would  be  avoided. 
Then,  again,  on  account  of  special  articles,  there  is  often 
an  extra  large  demand  for  some  magazine,  and  the  sup- 
ply is  sold  out  in  a  few  days.  As  the  dealers  are  so  far 
from  the  source  of  supply  it  would  take  too  long  to  re- 
order copies,  and  consequently  a  great  deal  of  business  is 
missed  that  newsdealers  should  have,  and  would  have,  if 
the  source  of  supply  was  nearer  and  more  central. 

Surely  the  time  is  ripe  for  the  establishment  of  a 
western  news  company.  The  west  is  growing  rapidly, 
the  centre  of  population  in  Canada  is  moving  steadily 
westward,  and  before  very  many  years  Winnipeg  will  be 
the  centre  of  population  in  Canada.  Now  is  the  time 
for  western  newsdealers  to  wake  up  and  look  after  their 
own  interests. 

,  I  would  like  to  see  this  matter  discussed  in  your 
columns  at  some  early  date,  as  it  is  a  matter  of  vital 
interest  to  western  dealers.  It  might  be  a  good  idea  to 
get  some  expression  of  opinion  in  regard  to  this  from  the 
leading  dealers  in  the  west. 

Before  closing  I  wish  to  add  a  few  words  in  appreci- 
ation of  your  corner  on  "Good  Advertising."  I  consider 
these  monthly  talks  one  of  the  most  valuable  features  of 
your  interesting  journal.  They  have  helped  me,  and  they 
will  help  all  who  will  study  them  carefully. 

Thanking  you  for  your  attention  to  this,  and  hoping 
to  see  a  discussion  of  this  matter  at  an  early  date,  be- 
lieve me,  Yours  very  truly, 

W.    J.    STEPHENSON.

THE   "OCEAN  TO   OCEAN"    CARDS. 

IN  the  array  of  popular  picture  post  cards  nothing-  has 
succeeded  in  finding-  a  more  rapid  sale  than  the 
"Ocean  to  Ocean"  series  published  by  the  well- 
known  firm  of  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited.  These 
beautiful  s'ceni<j  cards  depict  the  wonderful  beauty  spots, 
the  fertile  plains,  mountain  heig-hts,  and  Summer  haunts 
of  the  tourist,  besides  illustrating  the  splendid  business 
centres  of  commerce  and  manufacture,  pretty  parks  and 
suburban  retreats  of  Canada's  rapidly  growing  cities 
and  towns.  The  views  are  alike  educational  to  the  Can- 
adian and  a  source  of  national  pride,  which  can  be  sent 
abroad  as  a  world-wide  testimony  of  the  greatness  and 
possibilities  opening  up  in  this  wonderful  north  country  of 
America.  Each  card  in  this  series  is  most  beautifully 
brought  out  in  natural  colors,  realistic  to  a  degree.  Al- 
though   each   box   of     cards    contains    one    hundred,    there 


as  methodically  as  conditions  permit,  covering  an  area  of 
180  square  feet.  We  cany  in  stock  not  less  than  $5,000 
worth  of  cards.  A  window  display  will  not  get  the  trade 
unless  one  has  the  stock  behind  it.  invariably  collectors 
coming  into  the  stores  for  two  cards  go  away  with  $1 
worth.  Our  prices  range  from  5  cents  a  pair  to  15  cents 
each. 

How  to  systematize  the  card  business  is  a  problem  the 
writer  has  grappled  with  for  some  time.  A  logical  classi- 
fication seems  almost  impracticable  owing  to  the  super- 
abundance of  production.  We  have  a  dozen  of  the  largest 
size  whirling  racks,  and  a  thousand  card  cases  each  with 
a  capacity  for  100  cards.  These  are  spread  over  our 
tables  and   silent  salesmen. 

In  each  store  we  employ  a  lady  clerk  whose  special 
duty  it  is  to  keep  the  cards  properly  systematized.  This 
combined  with  intelligent   tact   we  find  has   increased  our 


Specimen  from  the  "Ocean  to  Ocean''  Post  Card  Series.    (Warwick  Bros,  and  Rutter,  Limited.) 


are  no  two  alike  in  the  lot,  and  many  new  views  have 
recently  been  added  to  this  important  series,  which  be- 
speaks much  for  the  enterprise  of  the  publishers,  and 
comprises  new  views  gathered  from  the  Atlantic  to  the 
Pacific.  No  dealer  should  be  without  this  attractive 
assortment  of  cards  for  the  Summer  season. 


SOME  IMPRESSIONS  OF  THE  RETAIL  TRADE. 

By  A.   L    Merrill,  Toronto. 

IN    response   to   your   request    for  impressions  of   the  pic- 
ture  post    card    business,    incident    to   counter   sales   of 
Canadian  stationers,  a  few   words  may  be  in  order.     In 
our   two  Toronto   stores   the  average   weekly  counter   sales 
of  post  cards  have  exceeded  $15(1  since  last   June. 

Our    window    display   consists   of   1,000   cards   arranged 


daily    sales,    and   we   can    readily    understand   how    an     in- 
different clerk  or  dealer  will  complain  of  small  sales. 

Confident  in  the  Future. 

We  have  every  confidence  in  the  future  possibilities  of 
the  card  business.  Cheap  comics  are  rapidly  becoming  a 
thing  of  the  past  and  we  have  decided  to  cut  them  out 
altogether.  They  appeal  to  a  cheap  class  of  customers 
who  monopolize  your  time  and  space,  generally  making 
only  a  five  cent  purchase. 

Cards  which  are  a  factor  in  education  will  flourish  for 
years  to  come.  Likewise  there  will  always  be  a  demand 
for  reproductions  of  masterpieces,  especially  those  which 
when  framed  take  the  place  of  oil  paintings. 

It  is  a  psychological  fact  thai  when  a  habit  is  once 
uniformly  established  even  the  lapse  of  many  years  will 
not  change  that  habit  or  custom.

Tho  habit  ol  collecting  cards  is  as  firmly  established 
as  the  habit  of  smoking,  church-going  or  reading  the  news- 
papers. 

It  is  a  regrettable  fact  that  "the  average  stationer 
does  not  carry  a  sufficient  lv  large  assortment  of  high-classi 
cards  to  impress  and  incite  customers  to  make  extensive 
purchases,  and  we  are  in  doubt  as  to  whether  the  im- 
pressions published  in  your  last  issue  from  one  or  two 
prominent  dealers  will  have  the  necessary  effect  of  a  ma- 
terial increase  in  the.  volume  of  wholesale  card  business. 
One  dealer  almost  gives  the  business  a  black  eye  by  faint 
praise.  He  tells  us  he  has  given  an  order  for  12,000  cards. 
Good.  We  have  placed  orders  for  250,000  cards  for  the 
summer  of  1906  and  expect  to  double  that  in  1907.  An- 
other dealer  sneers  at  the  "phenomenal  sales"  he  has 
heard  of.  We  can  assure  him  that  such  sales  are  the  regu- 
lar thing  among  those  dealers  who  have  the  stock. 

In  conclusion  may  we  ask  all  dealers  to  join  us  in 
maintaining  the  dignity  of  the  card  business  if  possible  on 
a   level   with   Great   Britain    and   other   lands     across   the 


son.     They  come  in  twenty-three  letters  of  the  alphabet, 
each  subject  being  an  entirely  different  pose  and  effect. 

CARDS  FOR  MEXICO. 

A  shipment  of  60,000  cards  was  sent  to  Mexico  re- 
cently by  Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  Toronto. 
The  cards  showed  pictures  of  Mexican  scenery  and  other 
Mexican  views,  and  were  made  in  Toronto.  This  speaks 
well  for  Canadian  enterprise. 


PEOPLE  AND   EVENTS. 

THAT  ever-popular  knight  of  the  grip,  "Billy"  Bell, 
embarked  on  a  three  months'  trip  to  the  west  last 
week.  He  is  carrying  the  line  of  the  Musson  Book 
Company  this  time  and  a  remarkably  fine  showing  it 
makes.  During  the  greater  part  of  March  Mr.  Bell  was 
assisting  Mr.  C.  J.  Musson  in  the  sample  room  at  the 
King  Edward  in  Toronto.

seas.  Let  us  taboo  every  traveler  who  has  the  cheapest 
cards  and  welcome  the  man  witli  the  costly  cards  even 
at  $1  each.  If  we  are  ever  to  accomplish  anything  in  the 
card  trade  we  must  educate  the  people  to  the  value  of  the 
most  costly  and  artistic  reproductions. 

These  are  some  of  my  impressions  after  great  expense 
of  time  and  money  and  a  trip  of  10,000  miles  to  study 
the  conditions  of  the  trade. 

INITIAL  LETTER   CARDS. 

INITIAL  letter  post  cards  are  a  new  feature  with 
Warwick  Bros.  &  Rutter,  Limited,  Toronto,  and  are 
reproduced  in  brown  and  white.  Each  card  has  an 
artistic  initial  of  large  dimensions  in  the  rear,  with  a 
beautifuli, statuesque  figure  in  the  foreground,  artistically 
posed,  giving  a  most  pleasing  effect.  The  cards  are 
beautifully  toned  down  in  shaded  effect;  and  immediately 
attract  the  attention.  Beyond  question  this  series  will 
have  a  strong  hold  on  the  public  during  the  coming  sea

Your  Store  Signs 

Your  store  and  windows  are  the  most  important  part 
of  the  advertising  problem.  They  furnish  reading  for  the 
people  passing  by.  All  other  advertising  gets  people  at  a 
distance  and  if  it  interests  them  enough  to  eome  out  of 
their  way  to  buy  in  your  store,  how  much  more  will  sign 
advertising  attract  them  on  the  spot  ?  Why  not  let  us  quote 
you  for  signs,  show  cards,  and  price  tickets  ? 

We  have  the  best  factory  in  Canada,  devoted  entirely 
to  making  of  art  signs.

ery  business  as  a  youth,  he  got  a  thorough  grounding  in 
the  elements  of  the  trade  and  when  five  years  ago  he  en- 
tered into  partnership  with  T.  E.  Knowlton,  as  Knowlton 
&   Menzies,   he  was   able   to   launch   a   business   which   has 


A  NEW  PARTNERSHIP. 

BY  the  admission  of  his  son,  John  Bevan  Hay,  into 
partnership  with  him,  Mr.  M.  G.  Hay,  the  St. 
Thomas  bookseller,  has  not  only  rewarded  a  capable 
and  energetic  employe,  but  has  materially  strengthened 
his  business  as  well.  The  new  firm  of  M.  G.  Hay  &  Son 
will  undoubtedly  continue  to  develop  the  business  which 
Mr.  Hay,  Sr.,  has  so  skillfully  built  up  in  the  four  years 
since  he  purchased  it   from   W.    H.   Murch. 

Mr.  M.  G.  Hay  started  business  a  good  many  years 
ago  in  Ridgetown,  and  after  he  had  conducted  it  success- 
fully for  several  years,  he  sold  out  to  become  collector  of 
customs.  In  1902  he  resigned  this  post,  came  to  St. 
Thomas  and  purchased  the  Murch  business.  With  his 
characteristic   push  Mr.    Hay   immediately  set   about   reno- 


J.  B.  Hay 

vating  the  store,  putting  in  modern  show  windows  and 
improving  the  interior  arrangements.  At  the  same  time 
he  gradually  cleaned  out  the  old  stock  and  began  to 
specialize  on  those  lines  which  to-day  make  his  store  one 
of  the  best  in  Western  Ontario 

Mr  J.  B.  Hay,  prior  to  entering  his  father's  store, 
had  a  serviceable  training  in  the  Molsons  Bank  branch 
at  Kingsville.  He  is  very  popular  in  St.  Thomas — a  fact 
which  should  stand  him  in  good  stead  in  a  business  way. 
The  active  management  of  the  business  will  gradually  de- 
volve upon  him. 

M.  G.  Hay  &.  Sen  carry  a  splendid  stock  of  books. 
They  also  specialize  a  high-grade  stationery,  and  Mr.  Hay, 
Sr.,  devotes  considerable  attention  to  the  wall  paper  de- 
partment, which  has  grown  to  be  an  important  adjunct 
to  the  main  business.

BOOKSELLER     AND     STATIONER 


THE  LATE  W.  JVIACPHERSON. 

A  FAMILIAR  figure  in  the  Canadian  stationery  trade 
passed  away  on  February  19.  in  the  person  of  Mr. 
W.  Macpherson,  of  Toronto,  Canadian  resident 
agent  for  several  -  of  the  large  English  manufacturing 
stationers  and  publishers.  .Mr.  Macpherson  was  born  in 
Inverness,  Scotland,  and  Learned  the  stationery  business 
in  that  place,  later  entering  the  employ  of  the  great 
Glasgow  house  of  William  Collins,  Sons  &  Co.,  where  he 
served  in  the  export  department  under  Mr.  M.  Riddell, 
now  a  member  of  the  firm  of  Hart   &    Riddell,   Toronto. 

In  due  time  he  was  given  charge  of  the  Canadian 
route  for  his  firm,  and  for  some  ten  years  he  visited 
Canada  annually.  It  was  about  the  time  the  Marquis  of 
Lansdowne  was  the  Queen's  representative  at  Ottawa 
and,  because  of  a  somewhat  remarkable  resemblance  to 
that  nobleman,  Mr.  Macpherson  received  the  nick-name 
of  "The  Markiss." 

At  the  expiration  of  ten  years  Mr.  Macpherson  set- 
tled down  in  Toronto  as  resident  agent  for  William 
Collins,  retaining  the  position  for  several  years.  It  was 
then   that,   the   western   fever   seized   him,    and   he   set   out 


The  late  W.   Macpherson 

for  Winnipeg,  starting  in  business  there  for  himself.  But 
he  soon  had  enough  of  the  west  and  returned  to  Toronto, 
to  again  take  up  agency  work.  He  first  formed  a  con- 
nection with  Thos.  De  La  Rue  &  Co.,  of  London,  and 
later  with  M'Caw,  Stevenson  &  Orr,  of  Belfast  (succes- 
sors to  Marcus  Ward  &  Co.),  adding  from  time  to  time 
C.  J.  Clay  &  Sons,  London;  Eyre  &  Spottiswoode,  John 
S.  Downing,  Hyde  &  Co.,  Chapman  &  Hall,  etc. 

His  work  carried  him  from  Newfoundland  to  Van- 
couver every  year,  he  being  absent  from  January  to 
August.  Everywhere  he  was  well-known  and  well-liked, 
and  this  year  his  many  friends  all  over  the  country  will 
miss  his  accustomed  visit. 


A  fire  in  the  wholesale  stationery  warehouse  of 
Grand  &  Toy,  corner  of  Wellington  and  .Jordan  streets, 
'I'm  onto,  on  the  evening  of  March  15,  damaged  the  en- 
tire stock  and  caused  a  loss  of  $50, 000.  Insurance  for 
$42,000  covered  a  good  portion  of  the  loss.  The  ware? 
house  was  rapidly  repaired  and  was  re-opened  for  busi- 
ness on  March  2S.  . 


THE    factory      of      the    Canadian     Oliver    Typewriter 
Company,    Montreal,    was   partially    destroyed     by 
fire  last  month.     Repairs  were  rapidly  made     and 
new  machines  can  now  be  supplied. 

R.  L.  McKay,  druggist  and  stationer,  Stoughton, 
Man.,  is  dead. 

Susan  Anderson,  fancy  goods  dealer,  Guelph,  is  sell- 
ing out  her  stock  by  auction. 

G.  S.  Borrowman,  druggist  and  stationer,  Leaming- 
ton,  has  removed  to   Guelph. 

E.  F.  Bishop  &  Co.,  Vancouver,  dealers  in  wall 
paper,  are  going  out  of  business. 

E.  J.  Wood,  stationer  and  fancy  goods  dealer,  Tilson- 
burg,  is  offering  to  compromise  with  his  creditors. 

C.  R.  Stevens  has  opened  a  book  and  stationery 
store  near  the  corner  of  Sparks  and  Bank  street, 
Ottawa. 

Harper  &  Bro.,  the  New  York  publishers,  have  in- 
creased their  capital  stock  from  $2,000,000  to  $3,000,- 
000. 

The  Electro  Tint  Engraving  Company,  1227-1229 
Race  street,  Philadelphia,  send  out  catalogues  showing 
samples  of  their  color  work,  duplicate  plates  of  which 
are  for  sale.     The  suibjects  cover  a  wide  range  of  interest. 

To  more  adequately  meet  the  wants  of  their  Cana- 
dian business,  the  Dennison  Mfg.  Co.,  with  Canadian 
headquarters  at  121  Coristine  Building,  Montreal,  are. 
removing  to  more  commodious  premises  at  101,  in  the 
same  building,  where,  for  the  convenience  of  their  cus- 
tomers, a  complete  stock  of  crepe  papers  will  be  car- 
ried. 

For  season  1906,  C.  F.  Rumpp  &  Sons,  Philadelphia, 
have  sent  out  a  small  catalogue  of  their  fine  leather 
yoods.  A  great  many  articles,  particularly  interesting 
to  men,  are  shown  in  elaborate  half-tone  illustrations. 
The  Rumpp  stock  is  a  most  attractive  one,  including  not 
only  products  of  their  own  factory  but  a  great  many  im- 
ported  specialties. 

An  interesting  calendar  has  been  issued  by  N.  K. 
Luxton,  manager  of  the  Taxidermy  Store  at  Banff, 
Alta.  It  bears  pictures  of  eleven  animals'  heads  mount- 
ed, illustrating  the  class  of  work  done  in  the  store.  The 
Taxidermy  Store  also  deals  in  all  kinds  of  curios  and 
souvenirs  of  the  Canadian  Northwest.  A  card  to  Mr. 
Luxton  will  bring  one  of  these  calendars  to  any  appli- 
cant. 

The  same  artistic  taste  which  has  made  previous 
catalogues  of  the  Premo  camera  so  attractive  is  again 
noticeable  in  the  new  1906  catalogue.  The  cover  design 
depicts  a  white-gowned  girl  sitting  on  a  piece  of  rock  in 
the  foreground  of  a  pretty  natural  scene.  The  cata 
logue  supplies  full  information  about  the  various  styles 
of  Premo  cameras  and  outfits,  with  numerous  illustra 
tions. 

The  offices  of  the  Macmillan  Company,  of  Canada,  on 
the  first  floor  of  the  Clarendon  Building,  Richmond 
street,  Toronto,  are  now  inhabited  by  Manager  Wise  and 
his  staff.  They  have  been  tastily  finished  in  dark-stained 
wood  and  dark  green  paper,  with  office  furniture  and 
rugs  to  match.  The  well-filled  bookshelves  are  a  delight 
to  the  booklover,  and  Mr.  Wise  assures  the  patrons  of 
the  company  that  they  will  always  be  welcome  to  drop 
in  and  browse  among  the  literary  treasures.

Announcement  is  made  from  New  York  of  the 
merging  of  the  publishing  houses  of  Herbert  S. 
Stone  &  Company,  Chicago,  and  Pox,  Duffield  lV 
Company,  of  New  York.  The  New  York  firm  has  pur- 
chased the  entire  good  will,  assets,  plates,  sheets  and 
publishing-  plant  of  the  Stone  Company,  whose  publica- 
tions will  henceforward  be  catalogued  in  the  Fox,  Duf- 
field list.  "The  House  Beautiful,"  edited  by  Herbert  S. 
Stone,    will    be   directed,   as  heretofore,    in    Chicago. 


BEAUTY    OF   NEW  DESIGNS. 

Sf'CII  is  the  excellence  of  the  new  lines  of  Spring 
wall  papers  of  domestic  manufacture  that  many 
merchants  are  drawing  attention  to  the  fact  by 
ticketing  their  window  displays  with  the  familiar  motto. 
"Made  in  Canada."  Indeed,  the  T.  Eaton  Company 
went  one  better  in  their  Toronto  windows  last  week  and 
boldly  challenged  comparison  by  showing  Canadian-made 
and  imported  goods  side  by  side,  each  ticketed  as  such. 
You  often  hear  the  remark,  "There  is  no  sentiment 
in  business,"  and  when  choice  lies  between  a  superior 
and  inferior  article  sentiment  will  not  go  for  much 
When  values  are  equal  T  believe  that  the  average  cus- 
tomer will  only  be  too  glad  to  give  preference  to  Can- 
adian-made  goods.

THE  NEED  FOR  GOOD  COMPOSITION. 

By  Arthur  Conrad. 

RECENTLY  a  writer  in  this  department  let  fall  some 
words  of  wisdom  about  the  power  of  the  small 
advertisement.  Few,  indeed,  after  reading-  his  ar- 
ticle, would  deny  that  he  had  made  out  an  excellent  case 
for  the  small  advertisement.  But  his  argument  was 
based  on  a  condition,  which  does  not  always  prevail. 
That  is,  he  assumed  that  the  small  advertisement  was 
well  written  and  well  set.

ADDRESS   HERE 


First   Prize  Book    Advertisement. 

Passing  over  the  wording  of  an  advertisement  for  the 
present,  allow  me  to  refer  to  the  composition  of  the  ad- 
vertisement, by  which  I  mean  the  putting  of  the  words 
into  type.  Composition  can  spoil  the  best-written  adver- 
tisement, and  that  is  why  it  is  important  to  consider 
composition  first.  If  a  printer  can  set  up  a  good-looking 
advertisement  from  poor  copy  he  can  usually  be  depend- 
ed on  to  make  a  strong  ad  from  good  copy. 

In  order  that  an  advertisement  should  be  powerful, 
it  is  essential  that  the  right  words  should  be  empha- 
sized or  displayed.  There  are  so  many  advertisements 
in  the  average  newspaper  and  they  are  crowded  so 
closely  together  that  only  those  which  display  some 
striking  word  or  phrase  will  appeal  to  the  great  mass  of 
readers.  The  advertiser  knows  the  words  he  wants  dis- 
played. The  printer  cannot  be  expected  to  know  unless 
he  is  told.  It  follows  that  the  advertiser  should  indicate 
the  word;;  he  desires  to  have  emphasized,  and  should  see 
to  it  that  the  printer  follows  his  instructions. 

In  order  to  illustrate  just  how  much  good  composi- 
tion helps  an  advertisement,  I  am  reproducing  on  this 
page  the  first  and  second  prize  advertisements  in  a  recent 
ad-setting  competition  held  by  The  Canadian  Printer  and 
Publisher.  It  happens  that  a  popular  novel  was  the  ob- 
ject to  be  advertised,  which  makes  the  illustration 
much  more  instructive  to  readers  of  Bookseller  and 
Stationer. 

The  competitor  who  set  the  first  prize  advertisement 


has  made  a  correct  choice  of  the  words  to  be  displayed. 
He  has  noted  that  "Nedra"  is  the  central  word— the 
keynote  of  the  advertisement — and  he  has  accordingly 
given  it  a  strong  central  position.  lie  has  gone  farther 
and  has  observed  that  the  sale  of  "Nedra"  is  going  to 
depend  largely  on  the  popularity  of  the  author's  earlier 
books,  "Graustark"  and  "Beverley  of  Graustark."  He 
has,  therefore,  given  a  secondary  display  to  these  names 
and  has  connected  the  three  by  a  few  well-chosen  lines  of 
display  type.  Having  accomplished  this  he  feels  that  he 
has  succeeded  in  emphasizing  the  real  point  of  the  adver- 
tisement and  he  proceeds  to  set  the  description  of  the 
book  in  ordinary  type. 

The  second  prize  advertisement,  it  will  be  observed, 
differs  slightly  in  the  words  selected  for  display.  The 
emphasis  is  laid  entirely  on  the  book  itself,  while  the 
compositor  endeavors  to  whet  the  reader's  appetite  by- 
displaying  the  expression,  "You  will  surely  want  to 
read."  The  placing  of  the  cut,  illustrating  the  book's 
cover,  is  such  as  to  make  it  stand  out  clearly  among  the 
neighboring  advertisements. 

While  speaking  of  this  ad-setting  competition,  allow 
me  to  refer  to  one  point,  and  that  is  the  use  of  the 
illustration.  Glance  for  a  moment  at  the  two  prize 
advertisements  and  imagine  how  much  their  value  would 
be  diminished  if  the  cuts  were  not  there.  The  cover  pic- 
ture lends  character  to  the  advertisement  ;  it  stamps 
it  as  essentially  a  book  advertisement. 

There  is  no  reason  why  any  bookseller's  advertise- 
ment should  not  have  a  similar  illustration.  Publishers 
are   usually    only     too     pleased    to    supply    cuts    to     their

this  direction  and  see  if  they  cannot  improve  the  ap- 
pearance cf  their  advertisements. 

If  readers   of   this   page   will    consider   how   much     this 
proper    display   means   in   the   composition   of    the    advei

Huid,  or  midway  between  a  fluid  mucilage 
and  a  non-fluid  or 
set  paste.  It  spreads 
with  great  ease  and 
smoothness,  catches 
quickly,  dries  read- 
has  great  adhesive 
power,  and  does  not  warp 
the  paper.  Very  popular 
for  general  office  or  home 
use.  The  brush-holding 
device  (our  own  patent) 
forms  an  attractive  method 
of  holding  the  brush  for 
display.  In  use,  the  brush 
is  withdrawn,  the  inner  disk 
or  lining  of  the  cap  removed, 
and  the  brush  passed  up 
vertically  through  the  cap 
In  this  position  it  can  be 
adjusted  to  any  desired 
height  with  reference  to  contents,  thus  always  insuring  the  proper 
quantity  of  paste  on  the  brush.  It  is  a  splendid  general  paste,  put  up  in 
a  novel,  practical  and  beautiful  manner.

All  good  ink  may  be  used  with  satisfaction  in 
WATERMAN'S  IDEAL  FOUNTAIN  PENS. 
Every  Dip-no-more  knows  that,  but  mixing  dif 
ferent  inks  generally  results  in  a  chemical  action 
that  unfits  them  for  use  in  any  fountain  pen. 
Therefore,  make  it  a  point  to  carry  one  ink  on 
which  you  can  always  depend. 
Providing  suitable  ink  for  our  own  pens,  we  are 
in  a  position  to  offer  a  fluid  that  can  be  depended 
upon  under  all  circumstances  and  at  prices  that 
compete  with  those  who  are  not  compelled  by 
circumstances,  as  we  are,  to  make  one  that  is 
always  perfectly  uniform.

ler," by  Katharine  Cecil  Thurston,  about  May  20.

Company. 

The  new  Norman  Duncan  book,  called  "Adventures 
of  Billy  Topsail,"  will  be  published  in  September  by  S.

Labrador.

the  Puritans,  by  Dr.  McPhail,  of  Montreal,  will  be  ready

of  Canada. 

About  the  end  of  May  the  Macmillan  Company  will 
bring  out  the  new  book  by  the  author  of  "The  Garden

You  and  I." 

The  Oxford  Press  reports  that  the  demand  for  "Jack- 
son's System  of  Upright  Penmanship"  is  on  the  increase. 
This  system  is  employed  largely  in  New  Brunswick  and 
Nova  Scotia. 

Twenty-five  cent  paper  editions  of  "When  it  Was 
Dark,"  by  Guy  Thorne,  and  "The  Purple  Robe,"  by 
Joseph  Hocking,  are  being  placed  on  the  Canadian  mar-

Most  flattering  reviews  of  "The  Secret  of  Heroism," 
in  which  W.  L.  MacKenzie  King  pays  a  tribute  to  the 
late  Henry  Albert  Harper,  of  Ottawa,  have  appeared  in 
various  English  reviews.  The  Spectator  gave  the  book 
a  long  and  commendatory  notice. 

William  Briggs  has  had  the  good  fortune  to  secure 
Mrs.  Humphry  Ward's  new  story,  "Fenwick's  Career," 
for  the  Canadian  market.  It  is  being  published  early 
this  month,  an  interim  copyright  meanwhile  securing  the 
market  against  outside  editions. 

The  first  edition  of  Ralph  Connor's  new  000k,  "The 
Doctor,"  will  number  25,000  copies.  This  figure  is  far 
in  excess  of  that  of  any  other  first  edition  ever  publish-

PUBLISHERS'      ANNOUNCEMENTS 


Bookseller  and  Stationer 


William  Briggs  has  just  issued  "Penwick's  Career," 
by  Mrs.   Humphry  Ward.     A  large  demand  is  anticipated. 

The  Macmillan  Company  of  Canada  are  delighted 
with  the  sale  of  "Lady  Baltimore,"  by  Owen  Wister.  One 
Toronto  bookseller'  said  he  had  never  handled  a  novel 
that  went  c>IT  v\ith  such  a  vim. 

Arrangements  have  been  made  by  which  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  will  publish  the  future  works  of  F.  M.  White 
in  Canada.  Mr.  White  is  the  author  of  those  popular 
books,  "The  Crimson  Blind"  and  "The  Weight  of  the 
Crown."  His  new  story,  "The  Corner  House,"  will  be 
ready  in  the  early  Summer. 

E.  P.  Oppenheim's  story,  announced  as  "The  Male- 
factor," will  be  published  as  "Mr.  Wingrave,  Million- 
aire." Other  books  to  be  issued  shortly  by  The  Copp, 
Clark  Co.  are  :  "On  Common  Ground,"  by  Sydney 
Preston;  "Made  in  His  Image,"  by  Guy  Thorne,  "The 
Voyage  of  the  Arrow,"  by  T.  Jenkins  Hains,  and 
"Henry  Northcote,"   by  J.   C.    Snaith. 

"That  Preposterous  Will"  is  the  title  of  a  new  story 
by  Miss  L.  G.  Moberley,  an  English  writer  who  has 
achieved  some  fame  as  a  writer  of  magazine  stories.  She 
belongs  to  the  same  class  as  Rosa  N.  Carey,  but  is 
claimed  to  write  a  better  story.  The  book  will  be  issued 
early  in  the  Summer  by  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.,  who  will 
in  future  publish  her  stories  in  Canada. 

"A  Vision  of  Immanuel,"  is  the  title  of  a  poem  of 
some  J  20  stanzas  from  the  pen  of  the  Rev.  John  John- 
stone, of  Napinka,  Man.,  published  in  a  tasteful  little 
volume  by  William  Briggs.  As  the  title  suggests,  the 
book  is  an  effort  to  present  in  verse  the  life  and  work  of 
Jesus  Christ.  The  composition  is  said  to  be  marked  by 
great  dignity  and  beauty;  a  really  remarkable  poem. 

"Canadian  Nationality,  the  Cry  of  Labor  and  Other 
Essays,"  a  collection  of  bright  and  clever  essays  by  Mr. 
W.  Frank  Hatheway,  of  St.  John,  N.B.,  is  announced  for 

issue  by  William  Briggs  during  the  present  month.     As      y       -^^yyi^^V-J 
the  title   suggests,   Mr.    Hatheway   is   an   intense  patriot/--' 
and   a  keen   sympathizer  with   the  working  classes.     His 
book  is  well  worth  reading  and  deserves  a  large  sale. 

A  new  Canadian  edition  of  "Roland  Graeme, 
Knight,"  by  Agnes  Maule  Machan,  has  just  been  pub- 
lished by  William  Briggs.  This  wholesome  story  should 
find  its  way  into  Sunday  and  day  school  libraries 
throughout  the  length  and  breadth  of  Canada.  Like  the 
same  writer's  "Marjorie's  Canadian  Winter,"  it  should 
be  read  by  Canadian  boys  and  girls  for  long  generations 
to  come. 

An  innovation,  being  made  by  the  Macmillan  Com- 
pany of  Canada,  is  the  supplying  to  the  Canadian  trade 
of  fine  illustrated  editions  of  standard  books  at  popular 
prices.  These  are  collected  into  uniform  series — Macmil- 
lan's  Dollar  Juveniles,  Macmillan 's  Dollar  Library, Mac- 
millan's  Globe  Library,  etc.  A  list  of  these  books  has  just 
been  issued.  It  deserves  the  careful  consideration  of  all 
Canadian  booksellers. 

Rev.  Canon  Low's  racy  volume  of  essays  or  sketches, 
entitled  "A  Parson's  Ponderings,"  is  now  ready  and  be- 
ing placed  on  the  market  by  William  Briggs.  Among  the 
topics  dealt  with  in  the  fresh,  vigorous  and  always  in- 
teresting style  of  the  worthy  canon,  are  theosophy,  high- 
er criticism,  philosophy  and  the  faith,  the  wise  men  of 
the  east,  etc.  The  chapters  originally  were  contributed 
as  sketches  to  the  Toronto  Week  and  the  Ottawa  Com- 
monwealth. 

A  work  long  needed  in  Canada  is  happily  being  sup- 
plied by  Mr.  Archibald  MacMurchy,  at  one  time  rector 
of  the  Collegiate  Institute,  Toronto,  in  a  compact  hand- 
book of  "Canadian  Literature."  Mr.  MacMurchy  treats 
only   of  English-Canadian   writers   and   their   works,   but 


concerning  these  he  has  accumulated  and  presented  a 
great  deal  of  interesting  information.  The  results  of  his 
research  will  be  hailed  with  satisfaction  by  instructors 
in  public  and  high  schools,  who  long  have  felt  the  need 
of  such  a  work. 

Mrs.  Henshaw's  work  on  "Mountain  Wild  Flowers" 
promises  to  be  in  every  respect  a  handsome  volume.  An 
exceptionally  fine  series  of  engravings  (over  one  hundred 
in  all)  from  photographs  taken  at  high  altitudes  by  the 
author  himself,  will  make  this  one  of  the  most  attrac- 
tive nature  books  on  the  market.  In  typography  and 
binding  also,  the  book  will  be  well  representative  of  the 
progress  of  modern  art  in  book  manufacture.  Messrs. 
Ginn  &  Co.,  of  Boston,  who  control  the  American  mar- 
ket, regard  the  work  as  one .  of  the  best  of  recent  works 
on  the  wild  flowers.  William  Briggs  expects  to  have  the 
Canadian  edition  ready  early  in  June. 

Another  notable  work  undertaken  by  William  Briggs 
this  Spring  is  a  re-issue  in  sumptuous  form  of  Mrs. 
Catharine  Parr  Traill's  "Studies  in  Plant  Life  in  Can- 
ada "  The  volume  will  contain  those  parts  of  the  or- 
iginal work  dealing  with  the  native  wild  flowers,  flower- 
ing shrubs  and  grasses.  It  will  make  a  book  of  some 
250  pages  in  large,  clear  type,  and  it  will  be  embellished 
by  eight  full-page  plates  of  flowers  in  their  natural  col- 
ors, and  twelve  in  black  and  white,  all  reproductions  of 
Mrs.  Chamberlin's  exquisite  paintings.  Lovers  of  the 
wild  flowers  will  be  fortunate  in  having  this  find  old  Can- 
adian nature  classic  placed  within  their  reach  in  such 
elegant  form.

William  Briggs  has  at  length  secured  the  plates  of  Dr. 
Fitchett's  new  life  of  John  Wesley,  entitled  "Wesley  and 
His  Country  :  A'  Study  in  Spiritual  Forces,"  and  will 
have  t\t\  Canadian  edition  ready  before  the  close  of  this 
month-  A.  fine  portrait  engraving  of  Wesley,  in  meggo- 
tint,  will  •  form  a  frontispiece  to  the  volume.  Other 
illustrations  sjlow  reproductions  of  autograph  letters  and 
pages  from  Wesley's  journals.  One's  expectations  are 
aroused  by  the  thought  of  a  personality  such  as  that  of 
the  great  founder  of  Methodism,  presented  by  the  pen 
that  gave  us  such  works  as  "Nelson  and  His  Captains," 
"Deeds  that  Won  the  Empire,"  "How  England  Saved 
Europe,"  etc.  It  is  almost  certain  to  be  the  most  popu- 
lar of  all  the  biographies  of  Wesley.

PROFITABLE  CIRCULATING  LIBRARY. 

ANEW  idea  in  the  circulating  library  has  resulted  in 
the  establishment  of  the  Tabard  Inn  Library,  which 
is  run  along  lines  somewhat  similar  to  the  old  plan 
used  by  libraries  circulating  books.  That  part  of  the 
Tabard  Inn  Library  which  will  most  appeal  to  the  book- 
seller is  the  fact  that  there  is  good  profit  in  the  under- 
taking for  the  man  who  lias  the  energy  to  take  advantage 
of  the  proposition.  The  library  has  headquarters  at  596 
St.  Catherine  street  west,  Montreal,  but  branches  are 
rapidly  being  established  all  over  the  country,  and  those 
who  have  already  taken  the  matter  up  seem  to  be  thor- 
oughly   pleased    with   the   beneficial   results   obtainable. 

Through  the  Tabard  Inn  plan,  a  library  containing 
twenty- live  books  is  sold  for  $25,  a  handsome  bookcase 
being  supplied  free  of  cost.  The  bookseller  is  supposed  to 
obtain  twenty-five  members,  which  should  be  a  very  easy 
matter.  Members  pay  $1.50  for  the  first  book,  and  may 
exchange  it  at  any  time  on  payment  of  five  cents.  This 
plan  is  eminently  satisfactory  to  readers  and  profitable  to 
the  bookseller.  The  bookseller  makes  a  profit  of  $12.50 
on  securing  his  membership,  and  it  is  only  a  very  short 
time  until  he  receives  in  rental  the  full  amount  of  his 
original  investment.  The  bookseller  may,  if  necessary, 
exchange  his  books  at  the  head  office  on  payment  of  five 
cents  for  each  book.  Full  particulars  may  be  obtained 
from  the  headquarters  in  Montreal  by  writing,  mentioning 
Bookseller  and  Stationer. 

A  CANADIAN  CATALOGUE  READY. 

A  CANADIAN  catalogue  is  being  prepared  by  the 
Edinburgh  house  of  Oliphant,  Anderson  &  Ferrier. 
which  should  be  a  boon  to  Canadian  booksellers. 
This  firm  of  publishers  make  a  specialty  of  religious 
works  and  high-class  fiction.  They  are  the  publishers  of 
Dr.  Alexander  Whyte's  admirable  six-volume  series  of 
"Bible  Characters,"  and  his  three-volume  series  of 
"Bunyan's  Characters."  of  which  new  editions  are  in 
preparation.  They  also  publish  all  of  Anne  S.  Swan's 
novels  in  two  styles  at  3s.  6d  and  Is.  6d  respectively. 

Of  this  season's  books  they  have  issued  an  excellent 
and  helpful  volume  for  young  men  entitled  "Spiritually 
Fit."  This  is  by  Albert  G.  Mackinnon,  M.A.,  who  be- 
longs to  an  old  Nova  Scotian  family,  and  is  at  present 
minister  of  Lochmaben.  Scotland.  "Prayers  for  School 
Boys  and  School  Girls"  is  a  neat  little  book  of  evening 
and  morning  devotion  prepared  by  Rev.  William  Watson. 
"Voice  Production  and  the  Phonetics  of  Declamation," 
already  referred  to  in  this  paper,  is  a  guide  book  to  the 
proper  production  of  the  voice  by  J.  C.  New-lands, 
lecturer  on  elocution  at  New  College,' Edinburgh. 

All  Canadian  booksellers  interested  should  write  for 
Oliphant,  Anderson  &  Ferrier's  catalogue. 

AN    IMPORTANT    PROJECT. 

ONE  of  the  most  important  publishing  undertakings 
of  recent  years  is  now  being  undertaken  simul- 
taneously in  the  United  States  and  Canada.  In 
this  country  it  is  being  carried  on  by  the  Authors'  and 
Newspapers'  Association  of  Canada,  with  McLeod  & 
Allen,  of  Toronto,  as  exclusive  selling  agents.  This  as- 
sociation has  made  arrangements  with  twelve  prominent 
authors  for  the  publication  of  their  next  new  novels  un- 
der unique  conditions.  Each  author  is  writing  a  $1.50 
novel,  which  will  be  run  serially  first  simultaneously  in 
100  of  the  leading  newspapers  of  the  United  States  and 
Canada.  One  novel  a  month  will  be  published  in  this 
way.  Immediately  after  each  novel  is  run  serially  this 
way  it  will  be  brought  out  in  regular  $1.50  style,  fine 
cloth     and     three  ink   embossing,    two-color   titles,     four 


multicolor  illustrations  by  the  best  artists,  and  a  fac- 
simile autograph  page  of  the  author's  manuscript,  320 
L2mo.  pages  with  printed  jackets,  and  equal  to  the  usual 
$1.50  novel.  While  the  books  will  all  be  in  the  $1.50 
style  and  with  the  price  printed  on  the  wrapper,  the  as- 
sociation requires  that  all  books  be  sold  by  the  book- 
sellers at  75c.  each— one  half  off  to  the  public. 

The  authors  who  will  contribute  to  the  series  are 
Robert  Barr,  Amelia  E.  Barr,  E.  F.  Benson,  Mrs.  Harri- 
son, Gertrude  Atherton,  Mary  E.  Wilkins,  Eden  Phill- 
potts,  Max  Pemberton,  Anna  K.  Green,  Ian  Maclaren, 
John  Oliver  Hobbes  and  Cutcliffe  IPyne.  The  first  book 
to  be  issued  will  be  by  Robert  Barr,  and  will  be  ready- 
on   June  1.     It  will  be  entitled   "A   Rock   in  the  Baltic." 

THE  SUCCESSFUL  BOOKSELLER. 

HANDBOOKS  for  the  guidance  of  tradesmen  in  almost 
every  business  have  been  produced  at  various  times 
but  seldom  has  a  comprehensive  handbook  on  the 
business  of  booksellir.g  been  published.  This  fact  makes 
all  the  more  valuable  a  volume  which  has  just  appeared 
in  London  treating  in  a  very  thorough  manner  the  art  of 
bookselling. 

This  book,  aptly  entitled  "The  Successful  Bookseller," 
is  attractively  gotten  up  and  conveniently  arranged.  It 
is  divided  into  twenty-four  chapters,  each  of  which  dis- 
cusses a  particular  phase  of  the  business.  The  great  value 
of  the  book  lies  in  its  practicability.  It  is  not  theoretic 
in  its  applications  of  principles  but  every  rule  that  is  laid 
down  is  derived  from  actual  business  experience.  In  the 
course  of  the  treatment  of  the  subject  in  hand,  the  in- 
struction given  is  personal  and  direct.  There  is  little 
generalization  ;   it  is  all  particular  "information. 

Stationery  and  fancy  goods  are  included  in  the  volume 
as  well  as  books,  and  hints  are  given  as  to  how  to  run  a 
news  agency  and  a  circulating  library.  There  are  chapters 
devoted  to  advertising  and  to  window,  dressing,  to  pur- 
chasing goods  and  to  selling  goods,  to  the  treatment  of 
customers  and  to  office  management.  In  fact,  so  compre- 
hensive is  the  book  that  it  would  be  almost  impossible 
to  name  a  subject  that  is  not  handled  in  it. 

The  publishers  of  Bookseller  and  Stationer  have  riiade 
arrangements  to  handle  this  book  in  Canada  and  any 
dealer  desiring  a  copy  can  procure  one  through  the  Mac- 
Lean   Publishing   Co.,    10   Front   street  east,   Toronto. 

NEW   EDITION  OF  WACOUSTA. 

.  The  Historical  Publishing  Company  are  doing  good 
work  for  Canadian  literature  in  placing  on  the  market 
an  edition  of  Major  Richardson's  "Waconsta,"  worthy 
of  that  really  remarkable  story.  The  book  will  be  an 
established  favorite  in  Canadian  libraries,  public  and 
private,  not  only  because  of  its  absorbing  interest  and 
high  literary  merit,  but  also  as  a  particularly  good  piece 
of  book-making.  No  expense  is  being  spared  in  adding 
to  the  attractiveness  of  the  book.  In  addition  to  a 
splendid  series,  of  original  illustrations  in  four  colors, 
and  a  strikingly  effective  cover  design,  executed  by  Mr. 
Chas.  W.  Jeffreys,  one  of  the  cleverest  of  the  younger 
school  of  Canadian  artists,  the  same  artist  has  furnished 
a  series  of  illustrated  chapter  initials  which  add  im- 
mensely to  the  appearance  and  interest  of  the  volume. 
Following  a  recent  fashion,  Mr.  Jeffreys  has  also  de- 
signed for  the  book  a  special  design  for  the  end  papers, 
giving  it  a  distinctive  appearance.  The  book  will  be 
ready  about  the  middle  of  this  month.  We  understand 
the  demand  in  advance  has  been  quite  exceptional.  Curi- 
ously enough,  the  larger  number  of  orders,  both  for  the 
trade  and  private  parties,  have  come  from  the  United 
States.

FENWICK'S    CAREER 

By    Mrs.    HUMPHRY    WARD 

Author  of  "  Tht  Marriage  of  "William   Ashe,"   "  Lady  Rose's   Daughieri"  etc- 

TV/fRS.  WARD'S  new    novel  follows   the   career  of  a   poor  young  artist  of  brilliant  talents  and  promise    who 
comes  to  London  to  win  bread  and  recognition  from   the   great,  uncertain   public.     Many  of  the  scenes 
portray   that  social   London  which  Mrs.  Ward's  recent  novels  have  pictured   so   wonderfully   and   with  such 
insistent  charm. 

Fenwick  leaves  behind  him  in  his  Westmoreland  home  his  young  wife,  while  he  faces  the  world  alone, 
living  in  a  little  London  garret.  His  talent  soon  attracts  the  attention  of  a  nobleman,  and  Fenwick  is  drawn 
out  into  the  social  world.  Through  a  succession  of  unforeseen  happenings  Fenwick  finds  that  he  has  allowed 
his  patron's  daughter  and  other  London  acquaintances  to  think  him  unmarried.  Failure  to  clear  away  this 
wrong  impression  culminates  in  a  tragic  climax  in  which  Fenwick's  wife,  by  a  hasty  and  unreflecting  act. 
deserts  her  husband  on  hearing  him  unjustly  accused. 

The  further  progress  of  the  story  leads  up  to  the  beautiful  reconciliation  that  is  eventually  accomplished. 

Throughout  it  is  an  engrossing  tale,  told  with  Mrs.  Ward's  consummate  skill  and  finished  art.  In  placing 
her  hero  in  humble  life,  however,  Mrs.  Ward  has  made  her  novel  markedly  different  from  its  predecessors.  The 
illustrations  are  by  Albert  Sterner.

MONTH

CASTLE,  AGNES  AND  EGERTON.— "If  Youth  but 
Knew."  Toronto  :  The  Macmillan  Company  of 
Canada.  Cloth,  $1.50.  This  story  of  the  Kingdom 
of  Westphalia  in  the  days  of  Jerome  possesses  a 
quaint  and  delicate  charm  that  is  entirely  lacking  in 
most  romances  of  to-day.  The  tale  concerns  the 
fortunes  of  a  young  Austro-English  nobleman,  who, 
under  the  guidance  of  an  eccentric  old  musician,  is 
introduced  to  a  young  maiden  of  noble  birth.  The 
vicissitudes  of  their  early  love,  happily  overcome 
through  the  fatherly  care  of  the  old  man,  give  to  the 
story  its  necessary  motif. 

CHENEY,  WARREN.— "The  Challenge."  Indianapolis: 
The  Bobbs-Merrill  Co.  Toronto  :  McLeod  &  Allen. 
Cloth,  $1.25.  Paper,  75c.  The  scene  of  this  pretty 
love  stor}'  is  laid  in  Alaska — a  land  but  little  ex- 
ploited by  the  novelist.  A  community  of  Russian 
fur-trappers  furnishes  the  stage  upon  which  the  little 
drama  is  enacted,  and  the  mysterious  forces  of  Na- 
ture play  their  part  in  influencing  the  outcome  of  the 
story.  The  writer  has  shown  that  human  passions 
are  the  same  on  whatever  stage  they  may  be  dis- 
played. A  loyal  love  enobles  the  youthful  lives  of 
the  lovers  Ivan  and  Motrya,;  superstitious  fear 
makes  a  coward  of  the  well-born  Mikhail,  and  vindic- 
tive hate  recoils  upon  the  head  of  the  crafty  priest. 

MAARTENS,  MAARTEN.— "The  Healers."  Toronto  : 
The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  Cloth,  $1.25.  The  Dutch  nov- 
elist has  entered  on  a  new  field  in  his  latest  work, 
and  has  introduced  the  reader  to  the  company  of  doc- 
tors and  to  the  study  of  disease.  The  interest  cen- 
tres around  an  idiot  boy,  who  is  an  English  baronet 
and  the  owner  of  great  estates.  The  hero,  son  of  an 
eminent  Dutch  bacteriologist,  undertakes  the  task  of 
curing  the  boy.  Ultimately  he  attains  a  measure  of 
success.  There  are  a  large  number  of  secondary 
characters  in  the  story,  each  one  of  whom  is  skil- 
fully portrayed.  The  touch  throughout  is  light  and 
amusing. 

OXENHAM,  JOHN— "Giant  Circumstance."  Toronto  : 
The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  Oxenham  has 
woven  material  for  at  least  three  stories  into  this 
book.  The  hero  is  depicted  at  various  times  as  a 
soldier  in  Egypt,  a  philanthropist  in  London,  and  a 
lover  in  the  Highlands.  Despite  its  somewhat  dis- 
jointed character,  the  book  contains  elements  of 
greatness.  Its  tone  is  healthy.'  The  lesson  which  it 
teaches  of  the  ultimate  blessings  that  follow  mis- 
fortune is  helpful,  and  the  various  characters  that 
we  meet  are  nearly  all  lovable. 

PARRY,  DAVID  M.— "The  Scarlet  Empire."  Indian- 
apolis :  The  Bobbs-Merrill  Co.  $1.50.  A  remark- 
able book  in  which  the  case  Individualism  versus 
Socialism  is  put  with  considerable  ability.  The 
reader  is  transported  to  an  imaginary  fabulous  com- 
munity, where  the  theories  of  Socialism  are  put  into 
operation  and  worked  out  to  their  logical  conclu- 
sions. The  minutest  details  of  life  are  placed  under 
State  regulation,  which  is  shown  to  be  the  natural 
sequence  of  the  Federation  of  Labor,  the  fundamental 
axiom  being  :  Might  is  right,  or  tyranny  in  its 
worst  form.     In   this   imaginary   community   cases  of 


individual  thought  or  leadership  are  regarded  as  a 
reversion  to  type,  treated  as  insanity  and  punished 
as  crime.  The  book  is  a  strong  arraignment  of 
Socialism. 

PEMBERTON,  MAX.— "My  Sword  for  Lafayette."  To- 
ronto :  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  Cloth,  $1.50.  This  is 
a  stirring  romance  related  in  Pemberton's  usual 
dashing  style.  Of  plot  there  is  very  little.  The 
reader  is  merely  afforded  glimpses  into  the  life  of 
Zaida  Kay,  a  worthy  American  soldier,  as  he  jour- 
neys from  France  to  America  with  the  Marquis  de 
Lafayette,  fights  beside  him  in  the  War  of  Independ- 
ence, and  re-crosses  the  Atlantic  to  enter  the  thick 
of  the  French  Revolution.  True,  there  is  a  bright 
little  love  story  that  inter-weaves  its  course  through 
the  pages  of  the  book,  but  in  the  main  the  tale  is 
one  of  wars,  stratagems  and  spoils. 

PIDGIN,  CHARLES  FELTON.— "The  Corsican  Lov- 
ers." Toronto  :  The  Copp,  Clark  Co.  $1.50.  A 
story  of  the  Vendetta,  the  chief  scenes  of  which  are 
laid  in  Corsica.  Two  pairs  of  lovers  divide  the  in- 
terest of  the  reader.  They  are  befriended  by  a 
benevolent  Italian  countess,  and  an  equally  benevo- 
lent British  admiral.  A  happy  consummation  is 
reached  through  the  timely  removal,  under  the  work- 
ing of  the  Vendetta,  of  all  the  villains,  of  whom 
there  are  a  goodly  number.  The  incidents  are  lively 
and  the  excitement  often  intense. 

RUNKLE,  BERTHA.— "The  Truth  About  Tolna."  To- 
ronto :  The  Musson  Book  Co.,  Limited.  $1.50.  A 
brilliant  society  novel  in  which  the  reader  is  intro- 
duced to  members  of  the  smart  set  in  New  York. 
The  central'  figure  is  a  wonderful  tenor  opera  singer 
about  whom  the  gay  world  goes  mad.  The  action  is 
rapid,  the  conversations  bright  and  racy,  and  the 
love  affairs,  of  which  there  are  several,  after  some 
misunderstandings  finally  adjust  themselves  to  the 
satisfaction  of  everyone. 

WATSON,  H.  B.  MARRIOTT.— "The  High  Toby."  To- 
ronto :  William  Briggs.  Cloth,  $1.25.  With  all  the 
daredevil  bravado  of  the  gentleman  of  the  road, 
Dick  Ryder  comes  galloping  into  this  book  and 
throughout  its  pages  keeps  the  reader  on  pins  and 
needles,  as  he  thrusts  himself  into  all  sorts  of  haz- 
ardous corners.  Dick  had  a  soft  heart  for  beauteous 
damsels  in  distress,  and  so  many  of  the  yarns  he  re- 
lates deal  with  his  exploits  on  behalf  of  the  fair  sex, 
but  he  also  ruffled  it  with  Bloody  Jeffries  and  other 
notables.  The  last  story  of  Ryder's  gruesome  re- 
venge on  Timothy  Grubbe  is  most  realistically  nar- 
rated. 

WISTER,  OWEN.— "Lady  Baltimore."  Toronto  :  The 
Macmillan  Co.,  $1.50.  A  delightful  book.  With 
rare  felicity  of  expression  the  author  has  produced  a 
picture  of  the  grace  and  chivalry  which  characterized 
colonial  life  as  it  was  before  the  reconstruction  of 
the  South.  An  old  world  atmosphere  pervades  the 
story,  rendering  the  invasion  of  the  modern  spirit  of 
wealth,  commercialism  and  vulgarity  not  simply  in- 
congruous but  almost  a  desecration.  In  many  of  the 
situations  there  is  much  of  pathos  flavored  by  a  gen- 
tle humor  which  gives  a  charm  to  a  book  one  closes 
with  regret.

TURNED 
IN     1  1906 


Money   in   the  Tabard   Inn 

WIDE  awake  Booksellers  and  Stationers  should  give  serious  thought  to  the  hard 
cash   possibilities  in  a  lending  library  of  their  own,  operated  under  the  Tabard 
Inn  system. 

1I"To  commence  with,  we  want  to  tell  you  what  has  happened  since  we  started  a  short 
while  ago : 

WHAT  HAS  BEEN  DO^E 

HEarly  in  March  we  decided  to  take  up  and  push  this  idea,  and 
with  our  plans  still  incomplete,  advised  the  trade,  expecting  to 
get  a  few  orders  for  25  book  libraries.  Out  of  all  our  orders 
(we  are  just  catching  up  with  them  now)  only  TWO  were  for 
that  quantity,  the  great  majority  being  for  HUNDRED  book 
libraries.  Some  who  ordered  50  books  to  start  with,  immediate- 
ly on  receipt  of  the  books  increased  their  order  to  100.  We 
opened  in  Montreal  on  March  31st,  and  at  date  of  writing 
nearly  2000  exchangeable  books  have  been  sold.  These  are  live 
facts  and  speak  for  themselves. 

WHAT  IS  OUR  PROPOSITION  ? 


We  sell  these   libraries  to   you  outright  for  cash  at  the 
following  prices : 

25     books

These  prices  include 

A  HANDSOME 
BOOKCASE  FREE 


tYou  are  given  a  large  list  to  choose  from,  including  fiction, 
biography,  travel,  etc.,  enough  variety  to  suit  every  taste.  The 
books  are  the  best  published  in  the  last  two  or  three  years,  and 
each  one  is  enclosed  in  a  strong  cloth  covered  case.  (This  case  is  a 
familiar  sight  all  over  U.S.,  Canada  and  Europe.) 
IT  You  have  the  privilege  of  exchanging  your  books  for  others  on  I 
the  list  as  often  as  you  like,  at  a  cost  to  you  of  5  cents  per  volume. 
Hlf  you  want  to  increase  your  stock  we  sell  you  new  publications, 
cased,  ready  for  use,  at  $1.08  for  $1.25  books,  and  .$1.18  for  $1.50  books. 

WHAT  YOU  GET  OUT  OF  IT 


^You  sell  your   members  books  at  $1.50  each.     These  books    carry  the  privilege  of 

exchange  at  any  rate  you  set. 

IF  A  fifty  book  library,  for  example,  costs  you  $45.     Sell  25  books  and    you  get  back 

$37.50  right  away,  your  investment  thus  standing  you  $7.50.     Against  this  you  have 

on   hand  25  books    and  a  book  case,  and  a  fortnight's  exchange  fees  should  wipe  out 

this  $7.50. 

ITThis  talk  contains  but  a  small  portion  of  what  we  have  to  say  on    the    subject  and 

if  you  will  write  us  we  will  gladly  send  you  full  information. 

THE  FIRST  APPLICATION  FROM  A    TOWN    OR    CITY 
DISTRICT  WILL  HAVE  THE  PIPST  CONSIDERATION.
