THE ONLY REMAINING

Complete Sets of The Living Age,

At a Large Discount.

The publishers have a small number of Complete Sets of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE, which they offer at a large reduction from former prices.

As the Sets cannot be reprinted, the last opportunity is now offered not only to procure them cheaply, but to procure them at all.

The last number of the year 1872 completed the Fourth Series, and the One Hundred and Fifteenth Volume, from the beginning of the publica

The regular price of volumes has been, in numbers, two dollars per volume, or, bound in cloth, three dollars per volume. The publishers now offer the Complete Sets (115 volumes), as follows:

In numbers, or sheets, ready for binding, at one-half the subscription price, viz: $1.00 per volume; or, bound in black cloth, gilt backs, at $1.75 per volume.

A few surplus Sets of the First Series (36 volumes), and of the Second Series (20 volumes), remain, which will be sold separately, at the same rate, if desired. None of the Third or Fourth Series can be sold separately, and the publishers can no longer supply any odd volumes, or numbers, published prior to Jan’y 1, 1868. A few of the Sets of the First Series, only, are bound in red leather backs, cloth sides, which will be sold to those preferring them to the cloth bound sets, at the same rate per volume. With this exception, those desiring a leather, or half leather binding, should purchase the numbers and have them bound in such style as they may prefer.

It is hardly necessary to say to those acquainted with the work, that the same amount of such valuable reading cannot otherwise be purchased with three times the money for which it is here offered ; and while this reduction in price places Sets within the reach of individuals possessing or forming private libraries, the attention of those interested in State, City, Town, College or School Libraries, is particularly called to this last opportunity of supplying their shelves with a complete work which it is believed no library in the country can (under this offer) afford to be without

Applications for Sets should be made immediately.

When packing boxes are necessary in forwarding Sets, the cost of the boxes will be added to the bill.

HYMN FOR A LITTLE CHILD.
God make my life a little light,

Within the world to glow;
A little flame that burneth bright,

Wherever I may go.
God make my life a little flower,

That giveth joy to all,
Content to bloom in native bower,

Although its place be small.
God make my life a little song,

That comforteth the sad;
That helpeth others to be strong,

And makes the singer glad.
God make my life a little staff

Whereon the weak may rest,
That so what health and strength I have

May serve my neighbours best.
God make my life a little hymn

Of tenderness and praise;
Of faith-that never waxeth dim,

In all his wondrous ways.
Good Words.

M, BETHAM-EDWARDS

seen.

Hushed be each word and thought of wrath

and scorning; Turn not away in weariness or pride; When the light dawns of life's eternal morning,

The poorest, frailest, may be at thy side.
