THE "BILLY TOPSAIL" BOOKS

By NORMAN DUNCAN

THE ADVENTURES OF BILLY TOPSAIL

Illustrated, cloth, $1.50

"There was no need to invent conditions or imagine situations. The life of any lad of Billy Topsail's years up there is sufficiently romantic. It is this skill in the portrayal of actual conditions that lie ready to the hand of the intelligent observer that makes Mr. Duncan's Newfoundland stories so noteworthy. 'The Adventures of Billy Topsail' is a wonderful book." Brooklyn Eagle.

BILLY TOPSAIL AND COMPANY

Illustrated, cloth, $1.50

Every boy who knows Billy Topsail will welcome this continuation of his adventuresome life in the North. Like its predecessor, the new volume is a stirring story for boys, true to life, among the hardy sons of the sea, clean, pure and stimulating.

To Chauncey Lewis and to "Buster," good friends both, sometimes to recall to them places and occasions at Mike Marr's: Dead Man's Point, Rolling Ledge, the Canoe Landing, the swift and wilful waters of the West Branch, Squaw Mountain, the trail to Dead Stream, the raft on Horseshoe, the Big Fish, the gracious kindness of the L. L. of E. O., (as well as her sandwiches), and the never to be forgotten flapjacks that "didn't look it" but were indeed "all there."
