No. 503-A TRIP TO ALASKA-Price, »i3o.oo

How many of our readers realize that a trip to Alaska in the summer is one of the
most invigorating and agreeable trips in the world? Most people consider Alaska as a
sort of big white elephant. It is big, certainly, being twelve times as large as the State
of New York, but instead of an elephant it is a beautiful land of the midnight sun, for
in summer the daylight never fades. Think of it! Always day. Always something
to look at when you are not asleep, and something well worth seeing too.

First, there is the sail on the Pacific, without a wave to disturb the equilibrium of
your stomach ; a sea whose color is a cross between turquoise and aqua marine. The air
will be bracing and clear, and you will have an everlasting appetite, with plenty to feed it
upon. Aside from the bountiful steamer's stores there are the salmon and halibut, never
so good as when taken fresh from the clear waters and grilled and eaten without loss of
time. Then you will see no end of straits, channels and islands, great and small, and you
will pass through narrow seas bordered by lofty mountains, and there will be numberless
glaciers. These are the white elephants for you, so monstrous you will think of the glaciers
you have seen before as mere snow or ice balls. At Douglas Island, near Juneau, you will
see the largest quartz mill in the world, at the Treadwell mine. And you will see Indians —
the squaws are said to be unusually ugly, but you might think otherwise — and they will
offer you all kinds of knickknacks at a high price, but you are not obliged to buy, for you
can obtain whatever you fancy at stores in Sitka and Juneau.

So reader, if you want a trip to Alaska and back (from any part of the United
States), read our directions, get up your club for the Califoknian Illustrated Mag-
azine, and any time from May to September provide yourself with waterproof, umbrella,
warm shoes and woolen clothing, take your trip and come home again in the belief that
you have discovered the elixir of youth.

It takes about a month to go and return from San Francisco by the shortest route.




THE MUIR GLACIER

The steamers are commodious, and as comfortable as any in the world. The
passengers are all well cared for, their wants anticipated by the officers, who aside from
being unusually courteous, know every rock, and mountain and glacier and every inch of
the route by heart, explaining them all in the most graphic and interesting manner.

This trip to Alaska is becoming a fad with Eastern people who desire to escape their
hot summer weather. Many of the best people of the land may be met on these steamers.
As they are greatly crowded, it is well to secure the passage a few weeks ahead of the time
you wish to go. See The Californian for March, May and June, 1892, for beautifully
illustrated articles on the glaciers of Alaska.

The price for the round trip from San Francisco to Alaska, including board r n one
of these fine steamer - , is $130.C0. We will give this round trip ticket as a premium for a
club of 200 yearly subscribers at $3.00 each, or 75 yearly subscribers at $3.00 each and
$80.00 cash, or 50 yearly subscr ibers at $3.00 each and $110.00 cash.

The Charm of Women

| The baby girl must have pretty clothes,

| the little miss dainty laces, the young lady

I every aid to her toilet. The wife thinks

I long of that which will be most becoming,

I while the dear grandmother folds the white

I tissue over her breast with all the care and

I grace of her earlier years. The wish to be

beautiful is woman's heritage. She never

loses it ; it brightens every day of her life.

There is one charm within the reach of

every woman : the charm of healthy,

white teeth.



RustfoAm



Will win this charm for you. It is perfect
in its effect upon the teeth. It cleanses

tern from all impurities, arrests decay, restores their natural whiteness, is
lelightful in use, acts as food to the gums, and relieves that extreme

:nsitiveness that causes you so much suffering. Rubifoam will prove an

Teeable friend to women. Sample Vial Free.

T^e JHfe of -A gassiz,



BY

Charles Frederick Holder, lit,. D.

Editor of the " Californian."

.uthor of a " Life of Charles Darwin," " Living Lights," " Elements of Zoology,'
"The Ivory King," "A Strange Company," etc., etc.



Notices of the Press:



This book is a valuable contribution to our oio-
graphieal literature, and the work is most carefu.lv
and admirably done.— American Journal of Education
and Natural Educator, St. Louis.

The book is brilliant and discriminating, and will
no doubt serve as a stepping-stone by which young
Americans will be led into the pleasant paths of
science.— Philadelphia Ledger.

A worthy biography of a most worthy subject.— De-
troit Free Press.

Prof. Holder's volume is written in his usual attrac-
tive style, and will be lound of interest net only to the
younger people, to whom it is more particularly ad-
dressed, out to older readers also.— Book Chat, New
York.

Dr. Holder is already well krown from his numer-
ous works on natural s( ien< e and his lately-issued
life of Darwin. No one could b<> more thoroughly in
touch with his subject or better fitted to do it justice.—
Boston Journal of Education.

Mr. Holder is a very pleasant writer; more than
this, he is painstaking and discriminating. He has
made a most interesting biography of the life and
works of the devout philosopher. The author's pur-
pose has been to give the story of the philosopher's life
in brief and to call attention to its salient features
and helpful lessons.— New York Observer.

One of the most useful and entertaining of the Put-
nams' Series of Leaders in Science is the " Life and
Work of Louis Agassiz" by Charles F. Holder. Like
the author's life of Darwin it is freely illustrated and
supplied with maps from the scenes of the philoso-
pher's investigations.— Brooklyn Eagle.

It is difficult to believe that any one having a taste
for natural science can read this biography without
becoming fired with new zeal, reflectt d from the love
of nature which Dr. Agassiz had from iiis early years
to the day of his death.— Buffalo Express.

In the matter of scientific equipment Charles Fred-
erick Holder was well qualified to write the life and
work of Agassiz i or the Putnam "Leaders in Science
Series," being by this knowledge better able to under-
stand the capacity of the subject of his sketch. * * *
A feature of it which will be welcomed is the lavish
introduction of letters of Agassiz and quotations from
his works.— Cleveland Leader.

The biographer is an enthusiastic scientist who
possesses the faculty of making his facts intensely in-
teresting, and in this work he has added not a little to
the facts already recorded in Mrs. Agassiz's "Life."—
Times-Star, Cincinnati.

Taken as whole no more useful life of Agassiz has
been prepared, and this volume can be warmly rtcom-
mended to all who wish to gain familiarity with one
whose name and fame will live always.— Boston Times.

A graphic, readable account of the great savant.— Re-
public, St. Louis.



We commend this book to our younger readers who
will be captivated by the story of this hero's life and
by the charm of the style of him who tells the story.
The volume is richly and copiously illustrated.— Liv-
ing Church, Chicago.

The lover of biography will find every page of this
neat little volume charmingly interesting and instruc-
tive. — Inter-Ocean, Chicago.

Prof. Holder is most fortunate in his selection of a
subject for his latest work, and in his graceful, schol-
arly style, has succeeded in bringing lorward all the
most attractive and ennobling qualities of one already
much beloved.— Baltimore American.

The author has furnished a clear and connected ac-
count of the principal features of the career of the
great "theistic philosopher of the scientific world in
which he lived.' —Boston Gazette.

A compact, well-arranged book, a handy contribu-
tion to American biographical literature.— Philadelphia
Telegraph.

As a biography and character sketch this'isa deeply
interesting work, while scientists will find in it much
of special interest to them.— Indianapolis News.

The book will prove a valuable addition to every
library, both public and private, and its interesting
account of the life so beneficently crowded with ac-
tivity and usefulness will be read and reread.— Boston
Herald.

Not so much an elaborate analysis of Agassiz's life
and its effect upon the scientific world, as a rather
brief story of its salient features, and an impression
of the good he accomplished, destined for younger as
well as older readers.— Book Chat.

The student and general reader are indebted to Mr.
Holder for a charming sketch of the life of a great,
true man, whose career possesses a strong fascination
for all.— Utica Press.

The book has interest for young and old alike, but it
is especially a volume to be read by young people, be-
cause it presents to them in concrete form a noble li f e
dedicated to high ends, and lived with a singular
purity and fidelity. — Christian Union.

This review of the life and attainments of the re-
nowned Louis Agassiz is as interesting as fiction could
ever be, since its incidents are of the kind that teach
us to marvel at the work of one man. The volume, as
a whole, is handsome enough for any library.— Colum-
bus Dispatch.

One of the cleverest books in G. P. Putnam's Sons
"Leaders in Science" series is "Louis Agassiz; His
Life and Works." The author, who has invested it
with an interest rarely found in works of this charac-
ter, has evidently considered it a labor of love, and
has devoted considerable space to showing the hu-
man side of the scientists' character. Aside from its
value as a contribution to the scientific literature of
the day, the work is a valuable addition to belles letters.
— San Francisco Post.
