"THE WORLD'S NEWS." The colossal issue of 150,000 of the Christmas number of the "World's News" shows what a domand there ia for tliis fascinating and informative penny publication. It is a mighty is sue, but it will be insufficient to meet popular requirement, and many thou sands will hear.newsagents say, "Sorry, sold ont." It is a truly notable num ber of delightful pages, admirably pro duced by the finest and latest machi nery in the Commonwealth. The illus trations come out sharply, clearly, and yividly, and enhance the interest of the letterpress. The fortunate possessors of the Christmas number of the "World's News," and who, for the first time, have handled a copy of this won derful weekly, must not hold the idea that this number is so special and BO good that the usual issues are very much inferior. That is a mistake they will find out for themselves when they secure the ordinary issue. The aim and determination of tho piibjishers are to make every issue an illuminating reco...
