THE LAST OF THE ROMANOFS

By Charles Rivet, The Petrograd correspondent of the Faris Temps
Translated, with an Introduction by Hardress O'Grady.

Illustrated. Net, $3,00

The New York Herald says: "A distinct addition to the important literature of the part Russia has played in the world struggle. Mr. Rivet knows Russia and the Russians, and he has the happy faculty of being able to impart his information convincingly and strikingly. In this book he gives the whole story of the Russian revolution and tells why it had to be. And in conclusion he says that it would be a crime against humanity not to rejoice greatly at what has happened in Russia."

GONE TO EARTH

By Mary Webb, Author of The Golden Arrow," "The Spring of Joy"

Net, $1.50

Rebecca West, author of "The Return of the Soldier," in the New York Sun, says: "The year's discovery has been Mary Webb, author of 'Gone to Earth.' She is a genius, and I should n't mind wagering that she is going to be the most distinguished writer of our generation."

Mr. Overton, in the New York Sun, says:

"GONE TO EARTH is the most impressive English novel since Thomas Hardy gave us Tess of the D'Uibervilles. It has many points of resemblance to Tess. The chief of these is its possession of the great secret of tragedy, mastered by the Greeks and lost and reconquered in these later years only in a few solitary instances."

Does it pay to make soup at home?

Figure it out for yourself. Figure it on the basis of real economy. Good home-made soup means retail prices paid for materials. It means labor and time used in buying and preparing them, fuel consumed in cooking them. Yet after all this bother and expense you have nothing better-nothing more appetizing and wholesome than

Campbell's Vegetable Soup

This gives you all the home-made quality without the trouble and fuss. We make the rich nourishing stock from selected beef. We include high-grade vegetables in well-balanced variety-potatoes, carrots, rutabagas, baby lima beans, small peas, green okra, Country Gentleman corn, Dutch cabbage and a puree of fine tomatoes.

We add alphabet macaroni, barley and rice, with a touch of leek, onion and sweet red peppers. Also parsley, celery and appropriate seasoning. A highly nutritious and health-giving combination.

Let your grocer bring you a dozen or more at a time, and save delivery cost, disappointment and delay.

Some National Achievements of 1917

A Statement by Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of the Interior

IN

N the every-day turmoil of preparing gigantically for a great world war, with some details here and there going wrong before the great machine is well oiled and running smoothly, we are very apt to get a clouded view of what in reality is being accomplished.

Therefore the question is pertinent-what did the country actually achieve in 1917?

A part of the answer lies in the record for the year in producing some of the essential resources with which I am familiar through the activities of the Department of the Interior.

Our three-quarters of a million coal miners produced 644,000,000 tons of coal, an increase of 54,000,000 tons over the previous year, notwithstanding transportation conditions in certain regions were worse than ever before in the industry.

In the production of petroleum we broke all previous records with an output of nearly 342,000,000 barrels, 14% greater than the former record output of nearly 301,000,000 barrels in 1916.

Of iron ore, the basis of all our guns and ships, and one of the most vital war needs, we produced over 75,000,000 gross tons; whereas our normal production has been about 55,000,000 tons.

We produced 640,000 tons of lead, an increase of 17,000 tons over 1916.

Of sulphuric acid we produced in 1617 (stated in terms of 60°B acid) 600,000 tons more than in 1916.

The increased outputs of these war-making materials show very clearly how faithful, how energetic, how patriotic has been the army of miners upon whose efforts depends our production of these vital supplies.

Certainly, in the accomplishment of the results I have recorded we have not been lax. We have met in a great way the great demands of an unprecedented situation. If the demands increase this year our efforts will also increase What we must achieve

we shall.

The Hercules Powder Company is glad to give publicity to this statement by Secretary Lane. Our interest in the figures he cites is dual. They show graphically the steps which the Nation is taking toward victory. They have to do with a phase of the Country's industrial life with which we are very familiar.

Secretary of the Interior

Hercules Explosives have played and are playing a vital part in the production of the very resources which Mr. Lane mentions, resources essential for the winning of the war. Without the use of explosives it would be utterly impossible to mine the vast quantities of metals and minerals of which he speaks.
