Did I say new? Yes, but as old as the hills, A for inside the bright new covers are “Heart

Throbs”—tender sentiments of humanity from the time of Christ down to the present day. Such a book as this, for real heart interest, has

never before been conceived Not one man's compiling, nor one hundred, nor one thousand, but over fifty thousand people have unbosomed themselves in lending their tenderest sentiments to the publishers.

What an unfolding is here, O ye of pessimistic faith and discouraged mein! A realization of the spirit found personified in this book will cure you for all time.

"Heart Throbs” was not planned as a book. It was simply the effort of an editor to learn something of the little poems or stories of heart sentiment, which the people are treasuring. Fifty thousand responses came, and the book, like Topsy, “just growed.” It demanded to be a book and it is.

Here's an incident:

The copy for the book was placed in the hands of eight printers who had no knowledge of the work. Every one of the eight has placed an order. "I want that book," they said.

But why? Printers are surfeited with such things.

If you could see the book you would know just as everyone who has seen this volume knows. It is a treasure trove. The heart strings of fifty thousand people, attuned to all that is high, noble and cheerful, playing in one grand sympathetic symphony, will strike a chord in your own soul. Get a book and see if it does not.

Please send me one volume of "HEART THROBS" bound in cloth and gilt with illuminated cover, for which I agree to pay $1.50 on receipt of book.
