    As A
    =special inducement=

    for our subscribers to interest others in “The Great Round
    World,” we will give to each subscriber who sends us $2.50 to
    pay for a year’s subscription to a new name, a copy of

    =Rand, McNally & Co.=
      =1897 Atlas of the World.=

    =160 pages of colored maps from new plates, size 11 1/2 x 14
    inches, printed on special paper with marginal index, and well
    worth its regular price — — — — $2.50.=

Every one has some sort of an atlas, doubtless, but an old atlas is no better than an old directory; countries do not move away, as do people, but they do change and our knowledge of them increases, and this atlas, made in 1897 from =new= plates, is perfect and up to date and covers every point on

    =The Great Round World.=

Those not subscribers should secure the subscription of a friend and remit $5 to cover it and their own.  A copy of the atlas will be sent to either address.

ANNOUNCEMENT

IN THIS NUMBER OF the great round world IS BEGUN THE STORY OF “THE GREAT ROUND WORLD, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED ON IT,” BY MME. ZENAeIDE A. RAGOZIN, AUTHOR OF THE STORY OF “CHALDEA,” “ASSYRIA,” “MEDIA AND BABYLON,” “VEDIC INDIA,” ETC., ETC.

FROM TIME TO TIME the great round world HAS PUBLISHED BRIEF HISTORICAL SUPPLEMENTS EXPLANATORY OF THE NEWS; SO MANY QUESTIONS HAVE ARISEN THAT REQUIRE A KNOWLEDGE OF THE ANCIENT PEOPLES OR BEGINNINGS OF HISTORY, THAT IT HAS BEEN DECIDED TO FURNISH THIS SERIES OF ARTICLES.  WE HAVE ARRANGED WITH MME. RAGOZIN, TO WRITE THESE FOR the great round world. SHE IS THE ACKNOWLEDGED AUTHORITY AND MOST BRILLIANT WRITER OF THIS CLASS OF HISTORY.  MME. RAGOZIN NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY; HER WORK HAS MADE HER WORLD-FAMOUS, AND HER ABILITY AS A TEACHER IS UNIVERSALLY RECOGNIZED. WE FEEL THAT THIS SERIES SHOULD PROVE INVALUABLE TO OUR READERS.

The troubles between Turkey and Greece do not show any signs of reaching a peaceful settlement.  In fact, from the news this week, the Powers seem to be growing angrier as the days go by.

England has boldly declared that she will never allow Thessaly to be placed under Turkish rule again.
