KEEP COOL. Don't adopt every book that comes along.

Don't condemn a book after brief examination. But when your neighbors have thoroughly tested a book and pronounce it superior - don't you owe it to your pupils to try it? We have in mind Tarr's First Book of Physical Geography and Lewis' First Book in Writing English.

DON'T THINK these are our only successful high school

books. Channing's Students' U. S. History is the book the best high schools have been waiting for. Stopford Brooke's is "the best history of English literature ever written," and the best algebra for drill is Hall & Knight's. Tarr's Geology is all right.

REST assured we shall keep right on publishing books of the

highest merit. Mrs. Wilson's Nature Study and Carruth's Wilhelm Tell, each a pronounced success, show what we intend to do along these lines. You will like our new series of English Classics.

NOTE. — The Ohio Teachers' Reading Circle has adopted Halleck's
Education of the Central Nervous System ($1.00) and recommends Mrs.
Wilson's Nature Study in Elementary Schools (.90).
