The "Necessary" Magazine



Theodore Roosevelt.—“The REVIEW OF REVIEWS does really im-
portant work because it gives not merely an epitome of what is going
on in the world, but a chance to every man of whatever political creed,
who writes seriously and deeply, to reach the classes of our people
most interested in the vital government and social problems of our time.
I know that through its columns views have been presented to me that
I could not otherwise have access to; because all earnest and thoughtful
men, no matter how widely their ideas diverge, are given free utterance

in its columns."

[ocr errors]


EVERAL hundred thousands of Americans find the AMERICAN MONTHLY REVIEW OF REVIEWS very useful and helpful reading. In the political year it becomes fairly necessary. In no presidential year will this be more true than in 1900, with the many important problems created by the country's new colonial duties. In Dr. Shaw's editorial survey of the month, in the timely contributed features, in the departments reviewing the other magazines of the world, the alert reader finds each month a full and accurate presentation of the political news, with able discussions of the economic and social questions which are interesting everybody. The authoritative character sketches of the presidential candidates and other notable figures appear at the hour when public interest is greatest in these subjects. The portrayal of current history in the best caricatures of each month is not the least attractive of these many helps to a right understanding of one's own times, and one's own public duties.

Each number is illustrated with nearly a hundred timely pictures.
