"End of the Century."

Boston Globe

On the closing day of the last year, which the Chicago Times-Hearld accepted as the closing day of the nineteenth century, that paper improved the occasion to issue a special "end of the century" number, which is notable in many ways, and contains information of the progress of the one hundred years between 1800 and 1900 that will cause it to be preserved by many for future use.

The number contained sixty-four pages, with a vast amount of space devoted to "The Progress of the World in the Nineteenth Century." In separate chapters the subjects treated include a review of the political, scientific, mechanical, inventive, agricultural, transportation, medical and surgical, chemistry, mining, Christian, and educational progress.

Two other chapters review the century in the progress made in war's accessories and in the startling list of assassinations of public men.
