THE

Children's Third Reader

BY ELLEN M. CYR

Cloth. Fully Illustrated. 260 Pages.

For Introduction, 50 Cents.

The plan adopted in Cyr's Second Reader of making the children acquainted with some of our poets is continued in this book. Stories from the lives of Lowell, Holmes, and Bryant are introduced. A large proportion of the prose lessons has been carefully selected from such writers as Lucy Larcom, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Elizabeth Phelps Ward, Celia Thaxter, Louisa M. Alcott, Abby Morton Diaz, and Julia C. R. Dorr, thus making the book a representative of a child's library.

The days of vacation, of rest and of fun,
When rosy-cheeked faces turn brown in the sun,
When the meadows are sweet with the scent of the hay,
And the tinkle of cow-bells is heard far away.
And this is the month of the glorious Fourth,
When flags are unfurled from the south to the north,
When cannons and crackers and sky-rockets, too,
Go blazing away for the red, white and blue.

Taken from "A Little FolksCalendar for 1897,"

VACATION DAYS.

In the Lake Regions of Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota, along the lines of the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway, are hundreds of charming localities preeminently fitted for summer homes, nearly all of which are located on or near lakes which have not been fished out. These resorts range in variety from the full dress for dinner'' to the flannel shirt costume for every meal. Among the list are names familiar to many of our readers as the perfection of Northern summer resorts Nearly all of the Wisconsin points of interest are within

short distance from Chicago or Milwaukee, and none of them are so far away from the "busy marts of civilization' that they cannot be reached in a few hours of travel, by frequent trains, over the finest road in the Northwest-the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. Send a two cent stamp for a copy of Vacation Days' giving a description of the principal resorts, and a list of summer hotels and boarding houses, and rates for board, to Geo. H. Heafford, G. P. A., Chicago, Ill.
