Am very much interested in your article on Peter Veregih, in your Nov. 17 issue, l'age 17. To me, this is a positive proof of the authenticity and correctness of your news, as your article on the death of Peter Veregin was more interesting, contained more facts and was nearer correct in detail than any of the newspapers right here in Winnipeg. Thought you might be interested in this fact. We have an elevator at Veregin and I have been there personally; and we also have a Douk buying grain for us there, who has told me many interesting incidents about
Are you going to get out those cards this year to your subscribers giving them an opportunity of sending TIME as a Christmas present? Hope you do.

Ever since I received my first copy TIME the world has been mine oyster, lemon juice, catsup and pepper on the And every week I find three or four e "Of Yesteryear," in the issue of N. was the biggest and most valuable of many I have found thus far.
But on occasions the oyster becomes cocktail, and the succulent natural juiT the mollusk are dissolved by the relish refer to the sentence in "Deep Briny 18, col. 2) in your issue of Nov. 10, in wh you described how a sounding lead was ered six and a quarter miles into the Pas Ocean and "dangled clear of the bottor far down in the absolute dark of the co and little fishes, strange little monsters radiolight spots, wandered around it deep.'

In view of the fact that I have never read a single item in your publication TIME, the following incident may interest you.
Last week, I attended a performance of The Second Mrs. Tanqueray, Directly in front of me sat a middle-aged gentleman with his wife, both faultlessly attired in evening clothes. From his general appearance, should promptly classify him to be a man of culture and education.
At the drop of the curtain on the first act, I was surprised to see him calmly pick up a fresh copy of TIME and start in with the very first paragraph; he read during the intermission that ensued, without once stopping. This he repeated at the close of the second and third acts; and I found my curiosity so aroused that I leaned over to see each time what he was reading and how far he had gotten in the magazine. Before the end of the play he had gone half way through the magazine, his companion quietly passing the time surveying the audience.
"Having perused well the chronicle of the week," and having fortified himself with a dose from Webster, the Instructor in Journalism "views with alarm" the accession of his favorite weekly to the conspiracy to pervert the small adjective "due" to the rank of a conjunction (TIME, p. 10, col. 3, Nov. 24, 1924). How can he keep his students from this barbarous usage when his best ally deserts him?
CHAS. F. ROBINSON.
Subscriber Robinson is agitated not without cause. TIME's sentence read: "Due to the strike's tremendous unpopularity, it was believed that the strikers were utterly defeated."-ED.
For some months, I have been premal myself to write you a personal protest a one of your editorial idiosyncrasies, find today, in reading the last issue of T that either you yourselves have become of its inane offensiveness, or else some else has effectively protested along this s line.
I refer to your former custom of refer to people as "one Joseph Smith" or "a Abigail Jones." Regardless of how ins cant a person may be so far as public s is concerned, the fact remains that each son so named is an individual personality as such is entitled to respect.
am a booster for TIME and have her direct means of adding several mat your list of subscribers. But this one ness I detested, and I am glad you last to abandon it.
HERE are two men of equal position and business income. Which of them represents you?
They read about the same number of hours each week. But one has no plan for his reading; at the end of the year he has little or nothing to show.
The other talks like a man who has traveled widely, though he has never been outside of the United States.
He knows something of Science, though he had to stop school at fifteen. He is at home with History, and the best biographies, and the really great dramas and essays. Older men like to talk to him because he has somehow gained the rare gift of thinking clearly and talking interestingly.
What's the secret of his mental growth? How can a man in a few minutes of pleasant reading each day gain so much?
Dr. Charles W. Eliot. from his lifetime of reading, study, and teaching, forty years of it
as President of Harvard University, has answered that question in a free booklet that you can have for the asking.
"For me," wrote one man who had sent in the coupon, "your little free book meant a big step forward, and it showed me, besides, the way to a vast new world of pleasure. This free booklet describes the contents, plan and purpose of
Every well-informed man and woman should at least know something about these famous "Harvard Classics."
FIFTEEN MINUTES A DAY
The free booklet tells about it-how Dr. Eliot has put into his Five-Foot Shelf "the essentials of a liberal education," how he has so arranged it that even "fifteen minutes a day" are enough, how in pleasant moments of spare time, by using the reading courses Dr. Eliot has provided for you, you can get the knowledge of literature and life, the culture, the broad viewpoint that every university strives to give.
Every reader of this magazine is invited to have a copy of this handsome and entertaining little book. It is free, will be sent by mail, and involves no obligation of any sort. Merely clip the coupon and mail it to-day.

. Now electric light and power company operators can telephone over their own power transmission lines carrying thousands of horse power. Yet they talk and signal with ease with a few thousandths of a horse power by the use of the Western Electric Power Line Carrier Telephone Equipment.
It is the most satisfactory means yet devised for communicating between the stations of companies which cover a wide area and where commercial telephone facilities are not available. It is an important aid in emergency and it helps maintain service twenty-four hours a day.
Here is a worthy newcomer to the long list of products manufactured by the world's largest maker of telephones.

However, with all his verbal grace he must retain the fervor of persuasion. From this combination comes the success of the work of James Wallen.
