COUNT THE COST.
PEOPLE of CONNECTICUT,
SUNDRY POLITICAL SUBJECTS,
PARTICULARLY ON THE PROPOSITION FOR A NEW CONSTITUTION.
BY JONATHAN STEADFAST

A TALE OF THE SELKIRKS
By Ralph Connor
I think I have met "Ralph Conner." Indeed, I am sure I have once in a canoe on the Red River, once on the Assinaboine, and twice or thrice on the prairies to the West.

He has seen with his own eyes the life which he describes in this book, and has himself, for some years of hard and lonely toil, assis...

OF THE COMMISSION APPOINTED BY
THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA
IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUEST OF THE LATE HENRY SEYBERT
WITH A FOREWORD BY H.H. FURNESS, JR.
Now, at the present time, when the attention of the public is turning
towards questions of Psychology and Psychiatry, it is most appropriate
that a volume such as the present Report be again placed in the hands
of the public. While it cannot be said that the conclusions reached by
the Seybert Commission w...

The Fugitives, by R.M. Ballantyne.
A group of people from a British ship have gone ashore to stretch their
legs, when enemies approach, the ship's boat retreats to the ship and
they are left stranded ashore. The book deals with their efforts to
find what they hope will be civilisation in the capital of the Island of

the reigning Queen has a hatred of Christianity which had been brought
to the Island by missionaries ...
