BARKER Illustrations by P. W. SWAN The First Reaper—2000 Years Old THE DAWN OF PLENTY (The Story of Bread) This Picture Story carries you around the world and from the beginning of time down to now. It traces the rise of agriculture—how we get enough to eat. It shows how plenty to eat has given us prosperity and happiness. Every factory, every railroad, every skyscraper is a monument to cheap bread. There never has been an entertainment like this—an entertainment so full of the unexpected. A story that grips, and tickles, and inspires—a story that moves swiftly from beautiful picture to beautiful picture; from pleasant surprise to pleasant surprise.

One of the First Steam Engines THE DAWN OF POWER (The Story of the Wheel) To see and hear this Picture Story is like being present at a procession of the ages. The world is seen to turn from nowhere to somewhere. Plodding along, man evolves a stick into an engine, a footpath into a railroad, a skin into cloth, a cave into a house. Back of almost every picture is a smile, and back of that is a thought. To see the first wheels grow into the all-powerful modern wheels—wheels that do the world's work and give us time to play—to see this is to see that which is rarely seen.
