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 attrac tively.

THE STORY HOUR.

A book for the Home and the Kindergarten. Illustrated. 16m0, $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. 16m0, $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.

A Romance of Achievement under Difficulties, a companion volume to "Pushing to the Front." By ORISON SWETT MARDEN. With twentyfour fine portraits of notable characters. Uniform with "Pushing to the Front." 12mo, $1.50.

66

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.

The series is doing an immense service to the reading public and to the cause of history in bringing forth adequate though brief records of the lives of eminent men of whom the general knowledge has become vague, erroneous, or traditional. New York Times.

Prof. Goldwin Smith, speaking of the series of American Statesmen in The Nineteenth Century, says: "It seems to us a very valuable series. It furnishes a history of American politics in the attractive and impressive form of biography."

The educational value of such books is not to be easy overestimated. To young men especially they will be a political library of the utmost value. - Boston Traveler.

Every young American ought to read, and, if possible. own this valuable political library. - The Critic.

No American should be without this inimitable series. — The Christian at Work.

Invaluable to the student of American history. - N'ea York Examiner.

These books are not mere State Histories; they are something much more and very much better than that. They are attempts to embody what is most distinct and peculiar in the political life and history of each State, and to show how that has contributed to the development of the whole. The

widespread interest awakened in the past of our nation will
find much to satisfy it in these volumes, for the design is
original and the execution excellent. - GEORGE WILLIS

T has instantly interchangeable carriages, one having harder rubber specially for manifolding. You are for instance writing a contract in manifold. Letters arrive requiring immediate answer. Simply lift off the carriage and substitute the extra one. Your manifold work remains in the carriage undisturbed. As easy to change as to take a hat off a hook and put another in its place.

This is the fourth point named in which the Densmore excels all other typewriters. The other three are: Lighter Key Touch, Greater Speed, More Convenient Paper-Feed. Will announce Number Five of this series next month. We stand ready to demonstrate and defend each claim.

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 12m0, $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.

[ocr errors]

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.
