Measured by every standard, what could be more valuable, more concretely useful, as well as more delightfully entertaining than the Victrola?
Second only to the actual physical needs of the body is the imperative hunger of mind and spirit for their essential "foods "—music, literature, inspiration, education, comfort and laughter. The Victrola is their tireless servant, bringing to them at any place, any time, the greatest art and entertainment of the whole world.
Victrolas by the tens of thousands are in daily use by our military
Send the Victrola to the boys in camp to cheer and inspire them!
There are Victors and Victrolas in great variety from $12 to $950.
Any Victor dealer will gladly demonstrate the Victrola and play any music you wish to hear.

A POET'S PREDICTION OF
THE FALL OF KAISERISM
The following poem, which a subscriber finds reprinted in the Toronto " Mail and Empire," was written by the well-known Scottish poet Charles Mackay in 1871 at the time when William I was proclaimed German Emperor. The fulfillment of its prophecy has been long delayed, but is now strikingly complete:
THE KAISER'S CROWN
(VERSAILLES, JANUARY 18, 1871)
The wind on the Thames blew icy breath,
lea; As I sat alone in London town And dreamed a dream of the Kaiser's crown.
Holy William, that conqueror dread,
From every jewel, from every gem,
In that imperial diadem
There came a voice and a whisper clear—
I heard it, and I still can hear—
Which said," 0 Kaiser great and strong,
God's sword is double-edged and long!"
"Aye," said the emeralds, flashing green— "The fruit shall be what the seed has
been— His realm shall reap what his hosts have
"Aye," said the rubies, glowing red—
"There comes new life from life-blood
"Aye,"8aid the diamonds, tongued with fire;
"Thinks not that Germany, joyous now, Cares naught for the crown upon his brow, But much for the Freedom—wooed, not
"Aye 1" said they all, with one accord,
Sad words those—" Too Late"—for they always emphasize what might have been and should have been but was not—especially in life-insurance.
In March, 1915, a man living in Florida wrote to the Postal Like Insurance Company for insurance-information, which was promptly forwarded.
As he did not reply, other letters, with printed matter, were sent suggesting that he protect his family by. taking out a policy even though a small one. He put it off.
Finally, in October, 1918, the Company wrote him and inclosed an interesting booklet entitled: "How much insurance ought I to carry?" Then, after more than three years, an answer came—not from him but from his wife, who wrote:
Your letters and your interest in my husband's insurance appreciated. He died one week aS° from pneumonia— without insurance and leaving two children."
Like most husbands he doubtless intended to take out a policy, but like many careless ones, he put it off until too late.
It was too late to protect his family after he was dead, or even after he was sick. There was a time he could have done it quickly and at little cost, but he waited until too late.
As the cost increases with each year's advance in to insure is now, and in a company which stands for safety , service and saving—the Postal Life.
To find out how easy it is and how little it costs, just drop a line to the Company, mentioning The Outlook, giving (a) your exact age and (b) your occupation. Insurance particulars will be promptly sent you— by mail only. Address,

IF you are in the habit of buying The Outlook at a news-stand, it will be to your advantage to place a standing order with your newsdealer. The War Industries Board has requested publishers to discontinue the acceptance of unsold copies from newsdealers, and in conformity with that request The ( hitlook is now non-returnable. To prevent loss, therefore, newsdealers must limit their orders to actual sales. Buyers at news-stands may co-operate and avoid disappointment by giving their dealer a standing order for the weekly delivery of The Outlook.
