The New York World has got the cost
of printing down to a minimum. Its
latest offer of its monthly newspaper
magazine is interesting if from no other
cause than that it shows the acme of
"how much for how little."
The Monthly World is a 32-page mag
azine with colored cover. Its pages are
about the size of the pages of the
Ladies' Home Journal, and it is copi
ously illustrated in half-tone. The il
lustrations are the result of the best ar
tistic skill, 'aided by all the latest print
ing press appliances, . making a maga
zine unrivalled in the quality of its con
tents and its appearance.
Each issue contains stories of romance,
love, adventure, travel J stories of fiction
and fact; stories of things quaint and
curious, gathered together from all over
the world ; the results of scieptific re
search, and editorial reviewB. It num
bers among its contributors the leading
literary men and women of the day.
A feature each month is a full-page
portrait of the moet famed man or

The August Smart Set.
The Smart Set can never be accused
of dullness. In its 100 pages of etories,
verses and witticisms there are sur
prises and delights for the most blase
reader. The August number opens with
a novelette of remarkable power and
originality, entitled "Miss Sylvester 'a
Marriage," written by Cecil Charles.
Miss Sylvester, the niece of a eociety
leader in New Y org, has some of the
wild blood of the South American Span
iard in her veins, and she is fascinated,
by Count Geraldina, a daring adven
turer, who claims to be worth millions
as the beneficiary of a pearl fishery con-'
ceseioo. The story of their sensational
marriage and its strange results is told
with great realism and admirable art. 1
