A Michigan mother (and competent critic) writes to the Editor of “St. Nicholas”: “I am convinced that no child who is without ’St. Nicholas’ can successfully compete in the race of life with those who have had the benefit of its wonderful pages.” And a prominent clergyman of Chicago informs us that one of his parishioners recently said to him: “‘St. Nicholas’ has saved my boy from ruin."

“If I could not get another bicycle I would not give mine for its weight in solid gold. For fifteen years I lost from three to eight days every month with stubborn sick headache. Since I have been riding the bicycle I have lost only two days from that cause, and I haven’t spent a dollar for a doctor.”
