"As previously announced, the second chapter of "The Jungle" will be printed next week—No. 484—thus giving an interval of two weeks between the publication of the first chapter and the second. This was done in order that the names of the new subscribers could be put on the mailing list in time to receive the second chapter. This putting on of new names is a big job—especially true at this time when the new names are beginning to roll into the office in a flood. . . ."

A front-page piece explaining that the second chapter of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle would appear the following week, delayed to accommodate the flood of new subscribers the series had precipitated.
