BOOKS BY KATE DOUGLAS WIGGIN AND NORA ARCHIBALD SMITH.

FROEBEL'S GIFTS.

I vol. 16mo, $1.00. This is the first book in a series of three volumes which are devoted to, and will bear the title of, The Republic of Childhood, having for its motto Froebel's remark: “ The Kindergarten is the free Republic of Childhood.”

This book answers a very general need and an emphatic wish for a book on kindergarten work not too technical, though, from the kindergarten point of view, strictly scientific and systematic, and so clear and definite as to afford positive aid and direction to the uninitiated. Both Mrs. Wiggin and her sister, Miss Nora A. Smith, know very thoroughly kindergarten principles, ideals, and methods, and fortunately they have the literary gift to set these forth very effectively and attractively.

THE STORY HOUR. A book for the Home and the Kindergarten. Illustrated. 16mo, $1.00. " Happy is the woman who has these ready when the children impatiently cry' Give us a story - Newark Advertiser.

CHILDREN'S RIGHTS.

A Book of Nursery Logic. 16mo, $1.00. “I esteem the book on “Children's Rights' as a new and desirable addition to that portion of our Kindergarten literature which is valuable not only for teachers but for parents. It is written from the highest plane of educational sentiment, and without any of the mere sentimentality which disfigures so much that is written by those belonging to the school of Froebel.” — WILLIAM T. HARRIS, the eminent United States Commissioner of Education.

"Pushing to the Front.” By Orison Swett MARDEN. With twentyfour fine portraits of notable characters. Uniform with “Pushing to the Front." I 2mo, $1.50.

This volume possesses the same remarkable qualities as those which procured for “Pushing to the Front” so hearty a welcome from the press and the public. The press pronounced that one of the most successful books of its class that had ever appeared ; and the verdict has been justified by the public, which has absorbed nearly a dozen editions. It has been adopted in the public schools of Boston and other cities, and has received hearty commendation from other countries.

Among the subjects of the new volume are: Wanted — A Man, Dare, Will and the Way, One Aim, Self-Help, Work and Wait, Grit, The Grandest Thing in the World, Rich without Money, The Might of Trifles, Guard your Weak Point, Nature's Little Bill, Decision, Curse of Idleness, Integrity, Ideals, etc. It teaches that a passionate love of achievement laughs at all impediments and defies opposition.

The volume is filled with a wealth of facts, tersely stated, with wise men's sayings, epigrams and poetical gems, and quotable passages. Although on the same lines as “Pushing to the Front,” this book does not repeat that, but continues and supplements it.

A Sketch of the Life and Work of the Painter,

Domenico Morelli.
By Ashton R. WILLARD, author of “A Legislative Handbook Relating to

the Preparation of Statutes.” With a Portrait and seven Illustrations. Square 12mo, $1.25.

Mr. Willard gives an interesting account of Signor Morelli's checkered, and at one time even stormy, career- of his up-hill fight against poverty, public indifference, and the academic narrowness of critics and juries. The criticisms and appreciations are temperate and scholarly; and the several fine plates with which the volume is enriched certainly bear out Mr. Willard's generous estimates. The Dial.

The publishers have done their part extremely well — clear type, very broad margins, and a tasteful binding. Lovers of art will be very thankful to Mr. Willard for this exposition of Morelli, and to the publishers for the handsome form in which they have presented it. The Pacific Churchman.
