The teacher's and minister's ideal vacation ground is quiet, peaceful, healthful, beautiful Nova Scotia. Last year we had a delightful time and acquired much helpful experience and information in connection with our personally conducted party composed of over twenty ministers and teachers, with whom, in delightful fellowship, we climbed old Blomidon, sailed the picturesque Basin of Minas and rested in the romantic valley of the Gaspereau. We became acquainted with the routes and the accommodating officials of the railway and steamship companies, and acquired valuable information as to hotels and boarding houses. If you think of going to Nova Scotia next summer it would be well to communicate with us. We shall organize two parties during vacation, in connection with which you can go more cheaply and far more pleasantly than alone. Our trips this


will include one giving the tourists a week in the beautiful Evangeline valley, with headquarters at Wolfville, whence a side trip can be made to Parrsboro, across the basin of Minas. Another week will be spent chiefly in touring, taking in Halifax, Digby and Annapolis, with a side trip, if desired, to St. John. This party will leave Boston immediately after the schools close, returning before the great Christian Endeavor Convention in Boston, in July. Another party, July 18 to Aug. 13, only $59.00. Write for prospectus to associate editor of EDUCATION.

Schools and Universities.

These Photographs are published in three sizes and are exceptionally suitable for the library, hall or stair case.

One of the most beautiful books of summer travel ever issued is that just out, entitled “Beautiful Nova Scotia," published by the Yarmouth Steamship Company. Outside, the delicate blue cover is outlined in white with gold letters and a spray of golden rod in colors across the picture of a farmhouse in Arcadia. Inside, there are thirty exquisite half-tone engravings, most of them full page, and fifty-eight pages of beautifully printed text describing the many beautiful and too-little-known regions in Nova Scotia, with the best ways of reaching them. The Yarmouth Steamship ('ompany does nothing by halves, and in issuing books as in providing for the comfort of passengers it spares neither trouble or expense. “Beautiful Nova Scotia" can be had by sending the necessary postage (10 cents) to Mr. J. F. Spinney, 43 Lewis Wharf, Boston.

EXCURSIONS TO DENVER AND BEYOND. Teachers and all others interested in the meeting of the National Educational Association, at Denver, in July, will be pleased to read the announcement of the proposed excursion, arranged by Messrs. Raymond & Whitcomb, for those who attend from New England. Three separate dates of departure are announced, the route westward being on the Boston & Albany Railroad, and its direct connections. Visits will be made by each party to Niagara Falls, Chicago and attractive points in Colorado. A choice of routes is given returning. For persons who can take time for a more extended tour, excursions to Utah, the Yellowstone National Park, Alaska, etc., have been planned. The trip to Alaska will be made in an elegant steamer, especiallly engaged for the teachers and their friends. All these tours are offered at surprisingly low figures, and such opportunities for unexpensive trips do not often occur. As Messrs. Raymond & Whitcomb will attend to the (luties of the several tours, everything in connection therewith will be well arranged. (See advertisement on outside cover.)
