HISTORY TOPICS AND OUTLINES have been called for so much that we have exerted ourselves to find, and can now offer our patrons, a most excellent series. The topics are arranged in three periods of two sections each; carefully chosen after practical test, and will be found fitted to the ordinary school, both in matter treated and books of reference. The references are carefully revised, and will be found especially accurate. Teachers of Colonial History will find their outline in one series, those of Revolutionary History in a second, and Constitutional History in a third, and each separate.

A GOOD pencil sharpener is the teacher's greatest saver of time and labor. There is no question but that E. L. Kellogg & Co., 25 Clinton place, New York, have hit upon the simplest, most effective, and cheapest sharpener yet put upon the market. We can speak from actual knowledge, as we have one in constant use in our office. Only $1.50 each, and yet as effective and certainly better than a $5 machine.

FIVE HUNDRED CHOICE SELECTIONS, by Frances W. Lewis, is meeting with marked success. An exchange says of it:-"Here is an unpretentious book and yet a valuable one both for use in the schoolroom and at home. It presents a drill-book in the most important grammatical rules and constructions, and in addition a collection of poetic and prose extracts from a wide range of literature. As an aid to correct writing and to storing the mind with the finest moral and religious sentiments it will be worth to any person many times its cost." Price 75 cents. Send for a copy.

LONGMANS' JUNIOR SCHOOL COMPOSITION. BY DAVID SALMON. A First Book on
"This is a better book by far than any in common use in this country, with the possible exception of Professor Whitney's Essentials, and the latter is not so full. It is thoroughly logical and scientific, though the author would probably claim to be a teacher and grammarian rather than a scientist. He has produced one of the best working grammars we have ever seen, and this applies to all its parts. It is excellently arranged and perfectly graded."- New York' Teacher.'
LONGMANS' JUNIOR SCHOOL GRAMMAR. BY DAVID SALMON. 124 pp. 12mo. 30 cents.
The Junior School Grammar is an adaptation of the first half of the author's School Grammar, with some of the explanations simplified, with many of the exercises amplified, and with a few of the diffculties omitted. The characteristics of the book are, in addition to its inductive method, the number and variety of its exercises and the omission of all the minor distinctions of grammar. It thus provides much to do, and not much to remember.

Our list of good candidates is rapidly decreasing. Over four hundred of our teachers have secured positions, either through us or otherwise, during the past two weeks. Two weeks more will see another decrease of four hundred, and a corresponding increase in the demand. Boards get anxious and urgent, as one by one the good applicants withdraw their applications. New openings, suddenly made vacant by elections to more important positions, are known at once to the Association; school boards write and telegraph us daily for teachers for these places.
During June, July, and August changes are sudden. The RUSH will soon be upon us. Available candidates become few. If you would accept a better place at a larger salary, write us, state your qualifications fully in your first letter, to save time. Circulars and manual sent free. Address,
