On 'lie  second point, a clear inference would  seem ,to be that large-type Bi-hlcs arc  chosen because they arc meant to be  read, and no doubt we-read."  Mr. Frowde added ��������� that in rough  nunvbers the Oxford Press produces  aLoutia million Oxford Bibles in the  year. ; In 1875 the figures were about  500,004).  On this point Mr. Frowde had also something interesting to say, although he could only speak in general  terms,  ...  '���������'Some years ago we attempted to  work out figures showing, the sale of  our Bibles in different countries,  i-cr  heiid      ..of   populjajtaon.    The   figures  were: ��������� For. England   and   Wales   1.0;  for    ^Scotland, 1.5; for Ireland, .03;  lor,.Canada, 0.7'5^ ,and. for the United  States  of America  0.35.   It.  will    lie  seen, v therefore,  that on the basis of  inhabitants      Scotland  buys- Bibles,  best,   while  the United . States,      by  virtue of their huge population, buys  the greatest number."  Australia imports   Bibles  largely,  and   New  Zealand still  more  largely  per head of her people.   Mr.  Frcwde  compared   New   Zpalhnd   with   Scot  land  as a Bible-buying country.  "It-is set up for some .previous ed  ition,  and  then it is correct ed   from  yet another edition.    This  goes     en  until each nsw edition of the,Bible  has been read four .times by (different  readers  from four, different editions.  As  you  will gather,  the Oxford    ������i-  ble   is   thus  continually  being  read  and -re-read. It is a work, which goes  on  from  one  year's end  (o  another,  with  thc  result  that  there  is     'ery  little chances  of errors surviving."

The seriis consists  of a  do/en  'ids.,  showing twelve of Canada's leading  statesmen   attending   the   well-known  McClary   "Sunshine','   Furnace.     Thc  sketches  were drawn by a cartoonist  who  i.s  well  up in character sketching and     .the illustrations" are ".rue  represeiilalions  of  the  different   >oli-  Hcinns.    The  ads.   will   not   only  be  interest ing,   but   sliould   prove educative, as they will give the readers of  The Ledger an opportunity to-become  familiar -,-ith   the men  who arc guiding  the affairs of Canada.     The i.3Xt  of  the  adveitisemcnt  is  very     brief,  and   quite  in' keeping  with   1hc    ar-  toon sn-le of  the drawings.    Only   a  phrase   is  used  pnd   they  are  all   in-  leiesting as each one is p-uMicu'larly  applicable to Hie politician to  whom  it  refers.    For  instance,   the  phrase  in  the ad. in  which Sir Wilfrid  .\,au-  rier  is      used,   refers  to   t'i*c Prime  ?.Iinisier's sunny  ways,   for  which hc  is noted  on   two continents.  The ��������� d-  vcrlisemcnt   in      which   the  Hon. R.  L.
