Aim of the

Other What is said of these departments may be said of each department of the school. It has been the purpose of the management to equip Departments thoroughly each department, and to place it in charge of the most competent instructors.

appreciate Ohio's prompt and generous reception of Halleck's Education of the Central Nervous System and Mrs. Wilson's Nature Study in Elementary Schools, recently placed on the O. T. R. C. list. There is no more stimulating book for teachers than Halleck's, and Mrs. Wilson's is the first really helpful guide for teachers of that subject.

Channing's Students' U. S. History meets the general and pressing demand for a broader study of our institutions. Already in use in forty leading high schools.
