A MESSAGE To Canadian Readers .V t ft recent, issue of THE LITERARY .DKIIIBT is-published the result'of ari a'b- soJtitcly impartial canvass; made by its editors ainoiig-. the editors of. American newspapers to determine how the sympathies of Ihb American press ami-public in the present war are divided. The article shows, (hat in. round figures 28 per cent, of the newspapers 1'avor the cause of tlie 5 per cent, favor the Germans, and 65 :per cent, state 'that: the editors are neutral. The editorial re- plies also show that public sympathy is divided as per cent is for the Allies. 10 per cent, for the Germans, and 38 per cent, is neutral. This article is just one of the many important features, oi' the war news which Canadians will read with interest and which is exclusive with THE LIT- EEARY DIGEST. Xot only in recording the war news is THE LITERACY .DIGEST giving immense satisfaction to the Canadian and American public, but in all other.important topics of interest to invention, science, business, reliffio.ii. amusements, the same impartial spirit pervades. A Real Magazine For Real Canadians "The outcry against-THE LITERARY DIGEST is evi- dence of sheer bigotry and stupidity. As a ccMsctor and condenser of universal opinion THE LITERARY DIGEST is one of the most valuable magazines published on this continent. It is of inestimable value to the-eager but busy reader, to the student of-world politics, to the man whose business it is, or who makes ..it his business, to know the trend ,of opinion and events throughout the world. Those who profess to find pro-German and anti- British sympathies in THE LITERARY .DIGEST are gift- ed with the preternatural instinct for discovering what their prejudices (Canada) "The attitude of THE LITERARY DIGEST on the war has been the same as Its attitude on all other leading temperance question, reciprocity, the Mex- ican war, the attitude of strict Impartiality. There has not been a large issue on the horizon In the -last fifteen years but THE LITERARY DIGEST has pre- sented both sides of. it, snd It is for that reason THE LIT- ERARY DIGEST !c bought and read.
