THE LADIES' HOME JOURNAL

can i)roiiiise some really great features for 1900.
You will hear about theui now very soon.
Meantime, there are some good things to
be pul)lished next nioiUli and Ix-'Nond.



^c^



HER BOSTON EXPERIENCES is going
to become more interesting with each install
ment, and the other great feature, entitled




THE THEATRE AND ITS PEOPLE, by
Franklin Fyles, will develop into one of the
best Journal serials it has ever published ;
both were begun in the October number.



Of course, you remember the pictures of
HOUSES AND GARDENS that The
Ladies' Home Journal published last year.
Every one seemed to like them so much that
the Journal feels encouraged to offer another
great PICTORIAL TREAT, which has a
little wider scope. It is to be called




THROUGH PICTURESQUE AMERICA, in

a hundred pictures, with Luther L. Holden.
Mr. Holden has crossed the American Continent
over fifty times and knows every step of the
way. The idea is to give a sort of illustrated
SERIES OF LECTURES, for a descriptive
text will accompany each photograph. It will
be just as if you were going over the ground



with him. THE START will be made where
America begins, on the MAINE COAST, and
he will take us through the country, even
to ALASKA, CUBA, PORTO RICO, and
to the PHILIPPINE I S L A N D S— giving
altogether the best \iews ever published of
the sublime and marvelous scenery to be
found in this broad land of ours.

TWO FULL PAGES will be in each num-
ber. The hrst installment will come very soon.

It is possible to make The Ladies' Home
Journal more pictorial the coming twelve
months than ever before, because it will
hereafter be printed on the FINEST PAPER.
All the pictures will be clear and distinct.





Plioto^rajjh by W. Kurtz.



The Ladies' Home Journal is about to
present MR. ARTHUR B. FROST, tlie great
character draftsman, in some full-page pictures
of AMERICAN COUNTRY TYPES.
Such scenes as THE COUNTRY STORE,
WHEN THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN,
LOITERERS AT THE RAILROAD STA-
TION, and THE TOWN MEETING are
some of the subjects which have been chosen.




THE NOVEMBER NUMBER will be too
good for you to miss. It will contain some
pictures of our NEW AMERICAN GIRLS
—those who live in PORTO RICO. They are
beauties. Very few people have an idea of
the culture and refinement to be found on
that island. The pictures \vere taken under
special conditions by an official photographer
connected with the United States Army.

MR. FINLEY PETER DUNNE, the clever
AUTHOR OF "MR. DOOLEY," has created
another inimitable character by the name of
MOLLY DONAHUE. "Molly" lives across
the street from Mr. Dooley, and these sketches
of her will run through several numbers of the
Journal.

MR. DOOLEY has a good deal to say to
Molly, and he gives her plenty of advice.
Incidentally he expresses his opinions regard-
ing modern tendencies of women in general.



DAN BEARD'S next illustrated article for
boys will tell them how any one can have
A WILD -WEST SHOW in the House.
Professor ALBERT W. SMITH has written a
series of verses, illustrated by RAY BROWN,
which are called FUNNYLAND. They are
the quaintest doggerel imaginable : better than
anything of the kind ever done.

MADAME RONNER, the greatest living
PAINTER OF CATS, has sent the Journal
a lot of photographs of her most recent pictures.
They will be given a whole page in November.

The Anecdotal Side of ROBERT E. LEE
will be in the November issue. Pictures of
THE HOUSE WHERE HE WAS BORN,
WHERE HE DID HIS COURTING, the
General on his famous horse, "TRAVELER,"
and a number of other photographs will be given.

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A GIRL,

written by a girl — telling of her life's dawn, of
her hopes and fears as she enters the great
world through the portals of a boarding-school
— is in the coming number. Her own SWEET
LOVE STORY develops in the subsequent
numbers. No striving for effect ; just a plain,
straightforward narrative of a girl's life.

SIR HENRY IRVING has contributed
a most interesting and instructive paper on
SHAKESPEARE IN SMALL COMMUNI-
TIES. The nu)st recent portrait of the author,
with other PICTURES, ilkistrates this article
in the November number of The Ladies'
Home Journal.



THE GOVERNOR'S LAST LEVEE, by
Sara Beaumont Kennedy, in the November
Journal, is the first of a series, to be called
LOVE STORIES OF COLONIAL DAMES.

These pretty stories are splendidly illustrated.

REV. CHARLES M. SHELDON, author
of "IN HIS STEPS," has a paper, entitled
IS CHRISTIANITY PRACTICABLE? and
IAN MACLAREN writes an article, called
THE MUTINEER IN THE CHURCH,
for the readers of the November Journal.




' .'"'^ialM : :■ M. '■



STATELY HOMES OF OLD VIRGINIA,

a double page of pictures in the November
Journal, is a collection of twenty photographs
by Mr. Robert A. Lancaster, Jr., and Mrs.
Thaddeus Horton. Many old mansions are to
be found throughout the Old Dominion, but
they are, as a rule, remote from the railways,
and are not visited by the tourist. Only a few
people, comparatively, know of them, and The
Ladies' Home Journal takes great pride in
presenting for the first time such comprehen-
sive views of these MAGNIFICENT OLD
HOUSES, where wealth and culture have had
their domicile since early Colonial days.




THE PRACTICAL ARTICLES have not
been ignored. Mrs. Burton Kingsland's first
paper of a series to run from now on, called
GOOD FORM FOR ALL OCCASIONS,
tells what to do at all times when brought
into contact with polite society.

CORRECT CHINA PAINTING, by Amelia
C. Austin, is illustrated by photographs of
celebrated pieces of porcelain and their marks.
A CHRISTMAS-PRESENT PAGE comes
just in time, giving a lot of suggestions.



Then comes the CHRISTMAS JOURNAL,
which will be better than ever, with plenty
of GOOD, SEASONABLE STORIES.
Mrs. Charles Terry Collins' new serial, entitled




THE PARSON'S BUTTERFLY, will begin
in one of the early issues. It is the story
of a very young girl who becomes a minister's
wife and does the best she can, but makes an
awkward and pitiable figure in her new role.
A MERRY WOMAN'S LETTERS TO
A QUIET POET, or some reminiscences of
WHITTIER and GAIL HAMILTON, form
interesting reading in the Holiday Journal.
The pictures have never been published.

ARCHDEACON BRADY will have some-
thing very interesting to say to The Ladies'
Home Journal readers about the work of
A MISSIONARY IN THE FAR WEST.

But few of the things which the Journal
promises have been enumerated. The maga-
zine will be, from now on, really much stronger
than it has ever been. New thought, contributed
by new people, with better illustrations, will
make the next TWELVE NUMBERS of
The Ladies' Home Journal the best invest-
ment for ONE DOLLAR ever offered.



[E MAGAZINE
HARD TO GET HEREAFTER

Unless one is a subscriber, or buys it
on day of publication. If ypii are a
subscriber, each copy is received
promptly as it appears, with no effort
oh your part and with no risk of dh
appointment because of an exhausted
edition .

This year over 50,000 subscribex-s
have been disappointed because our
editions have been exhausted. This
will continue to be true, because
we are printing to our capacity.



A DOLLAR NOW SENT
WILL POSITIVELY INSURE
THE MAGAZINE FOR A YEAR
