ISSUED BY
THE CHICAGO DAILY NEWS COMPANY

[Copyright, 1907, by The Chicago Dally News Co.]

PREFACE.

When The Daily News Almanac was first issued, in 1885, it was a little paper-covered book of sixty-four pages. It contained, in addition to the calendar, the political platforms of 1884, various election returns for the same year, local and national population statistics, lists of the principal government and state officials, a very brief record of sporting and other events and some miscellaneous matter. The table of contents occupied half a page on the inside of the back cover. The present issue is a volume of 544 large pages, to index which requires some 2,700 lines, or ten full pages. In other words, the little almanac and political record of 1885 has developed into a year-book that is almost encyclopedic in scope and size. It may be added that this issue contains over forty per cent more matter than the volume for 1907, the size and number of pages having both been materially increased. The comparison is made merely to show that the purpose of The Daily News Almanac and Year-Book to keep pace with the ever-widening range of topics concerning which ready and reliable information is demanded by the reading public has been carried out to a degree which it is believed fully meets all reasonable requirements.
