OF THINGS WORTH KNOWING,
AND TABLES OF REFERENCE.
Includes Statistics of Census 1891.
Revised up to date. Pronounced by all as "INVALUABLE."
CONDENSED PRESS OPINIONS. "EVERYBODY'S POCKET CYCLOPÆDIA (Saxon & Co.) has reached its 200th l'hnusand. It ought to reach its Two Hundredth Million, for a cheaper or better sixpennyworth of universal information the world has seldom the chance of obtaining."- Weehly Times and Echo.
"It is a very long time since we have seen a more compact and skilfully arranged volume than this, issued at the ridiculously low price of sixpence. It affords information not to be found in more pretentious and more expensive volumes. It would be impossible to give even a slight résumé of all the valuable information contained." - Society Herald, March 26.
“This is a unique work--a marvel of cheapness. It contains much matter not to be met with elsewhere, and of a valuable nature to all. . . . There are military, religious, agricultural, and other statistics; information for the household, and on architecture, chemistry, diseases, food, inventions, population, astronomy, sports, &c.
There is a medical guide; particulars regarding great events and persons, ancient and modern; tables and directions of all kinds, and facts and fancies innumerable."-Border Advertiser, March 14.
