MARY STUART

QUEEN OF SCOTS

BY ALEXANDER DUMAS
Translated by J. M. HOWELL.

[graphic][ocr errors][subsumed]

The story of “MARY STUART, QUEEN OF SCOTS,” as told by Alexander Dumas, READS MORE LIKE FICTION THAN HISTORY, being devoid of dry details and touching the heart of the matter in every incident related of her checkered

career.

HER CHARACTER,

HER MOTIVES, and

HER ACTS

are painted with few and strong strokes, with a result so life-like and so moving that the UNHAPPY QUEEN seems once more, on the pages of this book, to live her exciting and ill-starred life.

*The story is as interesting as a novel, and certainly the great author has given us a welldefined idea of the unhappy queen's character.”Cincinnati Tribune.

“The story has never been more charmingly told than by Dumas.”Chicago Inter Ocean.

"This excellent translation places before us a vivid picture of the turbulent times which this woman of strangely mingled strength and weakness strove to rule the unruly Scots. These times were exciting and picturesque, and Dumas knew well how to make us feel the thrill of that excitement and see the drama with fascinated eyes."-San Francisco Call.

For all Americans there is an unfailing interest in the scenes and places of that historic little country that gave us our laws, our language, our conquering instinct and our faith. Divided many times by the bitterness of those contests that have made us what we are, she turns again to us and we to her, as the Mother Land, whose splendid story is also so largely ours, and in common with whom we claim the genius of Shakespeare, the laws of Alfred, and the dominant instinct of that Saxon lineage which wins and conquers and subdues by processes known to us two alone – the American and the Briton side by side. And as the centuries have passed England has grown nearer to us. She is no longer a far-off land of which we have only heard. The first voyages of those who made America, and made it English, occupied nine stormy and perilous weeks. It required two centuries to reduce that time one-half. Now our green shores and the white cliffs of Albion lie less than one week apart, and for thirty years we have talked with England under the sea in a common language, about common interests. To go and to return is an incident of daily life.

The Saxon, English and American, traveis more than any man, and with a stouter purpose to see, to know and to appreciate. England and America exchange visits every year in the person of thousands of individuals. The Briton finds with us brighter skies and higher mountains, and larger rivers, and broader lakes, and taller trees and more stupendous waterfalls than his islands know. And for the old, the storied, the historic, we go to him. What he has is in a sense our own. It is a hand-made and a time mellowed beauty; for us the beauty of history and association, ours as well as his. We give him stupendous Nature dotted with new cities that seem old enough

He gives us the story of our common race written in piled stones and clustering ivy, representing the toil and hope of centuries; a toil and hope which we inherited, and whose memorials are also ours.

Wool Soap is an absolutely pure soap, and contains no alkali or adulteration or filling of any kind.

There is no purer soap than Wool Soap, no matter at what price, and there is no better soap for toilet and bath purposes. The most expensive soaps, such as the highest grade of French and other imported soaps, cost more to make, and are more carefully moulded or milled and of finer texture, perfumed with costly perfume, enclosed in expensive wrappers and handsome boxes, paying high duties, but none of these expensive soaps are intrinsically better than Wool Soap.

The economical side of Wool Soap is of particular importance. Few families can afford to use the higher priced soaps in the toilet and bath, and thousands compromise by using costly soaps in the spare room, low-priced soaps for the bath room basin, and ordinary laundry soap for the bath tub. The Wool Soap user needs only one kind of Soap for the spare room, the bath room and the bath tub. Wool Soap costs so little per cake that the whole family may use it freely and at all times without thinking of the price. Swift and Company, Makers, Chicago
