nile lists, however, are in "solid" brevier, with
authors' names in capitals, the contents of series
being given in solid nonpareil, an arrangement
that gives these divisions a closely packed ap-

We have been, for the last twenty years, personally cognizant of Mr. Allen's faitnfulness to the interests of his American customers. When a resident in Washington, ten years ago, we found that the immense Congressional Library largely supplied its shelves through Mr. Allen's London Agency. Many of the extensive libraries belonging to the Universities and Colleges in the East have also secured their Foreign Books from the same source, and we have heard from the officers of these Institutions frequent testimony to the scrupulous exactness with which their orders were always filled.

"We cannot, therefore, do a greater service to the Colleges and Universities of the West, to which these presents shall come, than to advise that they employ this inexpensive agency for replenishing their Libraries with English Books."-President WeLCH, Iowa State Agricultural College.

"No better indorsement of Mr. Allen's Agency is possible than the list of leading libraries that continue to use it. For 30 years, strict integrity and unexcelled facilities have held the oid and made new patrons. The very large business built up demands only a small commission instead of the customary 10 per cent. A library can safely entrust all its London orders to Mr. Allen without getting other estimates and feel sure that it is not making a mistake."-Melvil Dewey, State Library, New York.

(Established 1880)

Are the Standard Liquid Drawing Inks of the World.

They are used and endorsed by the leading Schools, Colleges and InstiThree-fourths of the professional draughtsmen of this country use no other drawing ink.


Jo. Pennell says of the Black Ink: "There is no ink equal to it for half a dozen reasons. From the time you open the bottle until you have put all its contents on paper you have no reason to find fault with it."

A. B. Frost says: "I use a great deal of it, and it is certainly the best." BLACKS.-Two kinds: Waterproof, white label (insoluble when dry); and General, red label (soluble).

COLORS.-Carmine, Scarlet, Vermilion, Brick Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Brown, Indigo, Violet.


(Bottles by mail, prepaid, thirty-five cents each. Color Card showing actual inks free.)



The new adhesive for mounting photographs, etc., tissue and scrapbook work, and general use as a substitute for mucilage, over which it has many advantages due to its superiority and economy in use. Not a starch or flour paste, but a Vegetable Glue, semi-fluid, of soft and unctuous consistency, pure white color, and free from lumps. Perfectly homogeneous, and hence the water never separates from the pulp, leaving the latter to shrivel up, as occurs in all common pastes. Spreads smoothly and uniformly, adheres at once and dries quickly. Will not warp, cockle nor strike through, nor change the tone nor injure mounts. Requires no preparation-always ready for use.
