/ like the Californian from Start to Finish." Octave Thanet.



THE NOVEMBER CALIFORNIAN well carries out the policy
of representing the Pacific Coast of North America, yet providing
a bountiful feast of literary and pictorial good things relating to the
world at large. It will contain ten illustrated articles, among
which is "Irrigation in California" by W. A. Lawson. Charles
Edwin Markham, the poet, gives his impressions of the Pacific
Coast Exhibits at the World's Fair, while Arthur Inkersley will
describe his experiences among the Villagers of Mexico. A popu-
lar paper on "The Early Americans, " by Professor Richardson,
^^■■■■BflHESH te ^ s an interesting story, and the frontispiece

of the November number will give a graphic
view of the last of the Cliff Dwellers, a concep-
tion of Alexander Harmers, who has made a
special study of Indian life.

" Sport in the West" is treated in a
timely article on foot-ball by Mr. Clemans,
Captain of the Stanford University team.
Maurice Neumann describes our Parks and
Reservations. The literary article is by John
Vance Cheney, who gives a delightful essay
on an old book of poetry. The Californian's
series of articles on "The Chinese" have attracted widespread
attention and in this issue are continued by Mr. Walsh, who describes
the destruction of food-fishes by these aliens, demonstrating beyond
a doubt, that American food-fishes are being destroyed that China
may be supplied with shrimps and shell-fish. John Hamilton Gilmour
writes on the Brahmins and India.

Among the papers that will commend itself to thinking people
is "The Source of Reform," by Richard H. McDonald, Jr. In
poetry and fiction the November number will be particularly rich.
Clifford Howard has a beautifully illustrated poem, entitled "Music,"
while short stories and verse, book reviews, and editorials on current
questions of the day make up one of the most readable issues of
the fourth volume.




^H MEDICINE



Pale Faces

and sallow complexions are in almost
all cases results of Depleted Blood.
They go hand in hand with Loss of
Flesh and Wasting Diseases. There
is no nourishment in the blood, and
the whole system is starving for want
of an easy fat food that can be assim-
ilated.

Scott's Emulsion

of Cod-liver Oil, with hypophos-
phites of lime and soda, enriches the
blood and brings back a healthy col-
or to the skin. It is a fat food that
the weakest stomachs can deal with
and the most obstinate systems as-
similate without effort. Physicians, the

world over, endorse it.

Growing Children

must have the kinds of food found in Scott's Emulsion or they
will be thin and poorly developed. Babies grow fat on it.

NOTICE! Why should you go contrary to the Phy-
sician's advice by allowing some inferior preparation to

'■ be substituted for Scott's Emulsion?

Do You Wish to Reach the Moneyed People of the

Pacific Slope ?

If so, it will pay you to patronize the Californian Illustrated
Magazine of San Francisco.

The Californian has the largest circulation of any magazine of
the first class published west of New York.

The Californian is seen monthly by over a quarter of million
persons, and is the best advertising medium in Western North
America.

Manufacturers in the East find it the most valuable medium
through which to reach Pacific Coast buyers and consumers.

The Pacific Slope has grown with phenomenal strides within the
last ten years; towns and cities have sprung up like magic, and thou-
sands of happy homes dot the fertile valleys.

The Californian Magazine can be found in most of these homes;
it is the popular home magazine, and the only Illustrated Magazine
that has been accorded rank with the Century, Harper's, Cosmopolitan
and Scribner's, published in Western North America or west of New
York.

The Californian is the leading literary monthly of the West.

Since its very first issue the newspapers have passed
favorable comment upon the Californian. The verdict
of them all may be summarized in the exquisite com-
pliment paid to the Editor by M. Octave Thanet:

"I like the Californian from start to finish."
The New York Observer in a recent number writes:

"The Californian has moved its [publication, not editorial] head-
quarters to New York, but its Californian flavor is pronounced and
attractive. This magazine surprised us when we saw the first
number. As regards literary ability and thoroughness, it has had no
infancy. It was full fledged from the start, and has maintained its
character and worth right along. The illustrations, as well as the
articles, are of a high order."

Better than this the Editors could not say for them-
selves; but better than it ever has been readers may be
assured the magazine always will be.

"THE CALIFORNIAN is one of the best paying magazines
* in America to canvass for. It covers the unique field
of Pacific Coast life, and its superb illustrations, its splendid
stories, and its live editorials leave it without a competitor.
It appeals to the patriotism and the interest of the people of
the Great West as no other publication does. Agents have
made a great deal of money canvassing for it, and, as the
magazine is constantly improving, it will always be compara-
tively easy to obtain subscriptions to it. Sixty to One Hun-
dred Dollars a month should be made in this way by active
workers.

NOTICES OF THE PRESS



This book is a valuable contribution to our biographical
literature, and the work is most carefully 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 Ameri-
cans will be led into the pleasant paths of science.— Phila-
delphia Ledger.



A worthy biography of a most worthy subject.
Free Press.



-Detroit



Professor Holder's volume is written in his usual attrac-
tive style, and will be found of interest not only to the
younger people, to whom it is more particularly ad-
dressed, but to older readers also.— Book Chat, New
York.

Dr. Holder is already well known from his numerous
works on natural science and his lately-issued life of
Darwin. No one could be more thoroughly in touch with
his subject or better fitted to do it justice.— Boston Jour-
nal 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 purpose has been to
gtte 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 < >f t lie Putnams'
Series of Leaders in Science is the " Life and Work of
Louis Agassiz," by Charles F. Bolder. Like the author's
life of Darwin it is freely illustrated and supplied with
