KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

BETWEEN SEED TIME AND HARVEST Is a good opportunity to enquire about farming lands in South Dakota, only one day's ride from Chicago. Bountiful crops of Wheat, Corn, Barley and Flax reward the tiller of the soil. As a stock and dairy country South Dakota leads all the world. First class farm lands with near by markets can now be bought for from $10, $12, $15, and upwards, per acre, and this is the time to invest. For further particulars write to Geo. H. Heafford, General Passenger Agent, Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway, Old Colony Building, Chicago, Ill.

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 preeminentlyfi tted 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 a 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.

“Work with Words”

CHICAGO & NORTHWESTERN RAILWAY

A Practical Etymology and Word Analysis. This book has an extensive use in the best schools of the country. It teaches word analysis by a pactical method. It gives the root words only, requiring the pupil to make his own derivations and to go to the dtctionary for his etymology.

If you are teaching this subject, do not continue in the old way, but mention this paper, your school, and enclose forty-five cents for a sample copy for examination with a view to its introduction.

ing clues for the arrangement of the work, the constitutional history connects itself logically and necessarily with this, while industrial and social history is distributed thru it with such regard for chronology as is possible. The chief difficulty with the plan is, indeed, the disposition of this material so as to get from it a clear conception of the advancement of country. There is a good deal more of it than we are accustomed to find in such manuals, and it is in general judiciously selected, but the plan of the work does not allow that unity and continuous development of it which is attained in the political history. We do not, however, know a manual superior in this respect to the one before us. The general characterisicts of the Leading facts" series may be detected here. It is surprising how few names of persons occur, and still more so how devoid of character sketching the book is. Events, tendencies, "leading facts'' lucidly set forth fill these pages and give one a sense of mighty organic growth rather than of struggling individuals. A good deal of pains has been taken to make the book useful by cross-references, by an extended bibliography to which numbers in the text continually refer, and by an unusually full index. We heartily commend the work to the attention of high school teachers of history.

-STORIES FROM ENGLISH History, from the earliest times to the present day, by Albert F. Blaisdell (191 pp.; 50c.), contains forty narratives, beginning with the early Britons and ending witb the Sepoy rebellion in India. They are narrated in simple language, so as to be easily understood by children from eight to twelve years of age; most of them are authentic, but several are not above suspicion of being mythical. This does not lessen their value for such a book as this, whose aim is to interest the young, make them familiar with striking tales of the past, and so lure them on to larger and more serious studies. No lack of interest will be charged to these stories, which afford points of attachment and elementary conceptions for subsequent readings of history.

-SHORT STORIES, Third Reader Grade, by Elizabeth A. Turner (128 pp.; 30C.), aims to entertain rather than to instruct, though some of the stories are instructive, and especially to induce little folks to read for themselves.

-A Few FAMILIAR Flowers, by Margaret Warner Mor. ley (274 pp.; 70c.), studies the morning glory, nasturtium, snap-weed, geranium and hyacinth. It is a manual for teachers of young children, showing how to use the material which is right at hand to cultivate observation, love for beautiful things and a real knowledge of plants. The plans are simple and clear, and will manifestly accomplish these ends under the management of any fairly good teacher.

-The Fifth Book of XENOPHON'S ANABASIS, edited for the use of schools by Alfred G. Rolfe (115 pp.; 45c.), provides headings for the sections of the text, sufficient notes and a good vocabulary. The fifth book has been chosen because it is easy and interesting, and the book is designed for rapid reading. It is in the handy form of the School Classics'' series.

-ELEMENTARY ARITHMETIC, by William W. Speer (314 pp.; 55c.). is built upon the conception that mathematical relations become known by continued activity in judging of relative magnitude. Approached in this way, fractions are as simple as whole numbers. "By exercising ourselves upon things which lie within the range of sense, we obtain the means of discovering the relations of things which lie beyond. Mathematical processes should spring naturally from the needs and purposes they are to serve. They are easily mastered by the active." These words from the introduction explain the plan which has been patiently and skillfully realized in detail in the text. D. Appleton & Co.

-IN BROOK AND BAYou, or life in still waters; by Clara Kern Bayliss, (180 pp.; 6oc.), belongs to "Appleton's Home Reading Books," edited by Dr. Harris. Some of the simplest forms of life, of which young readers usually know nothing, are here treated in a pleasant and attractive style by one who is evidently an enthusiastic student of them. She has made an abundance of pictures, some of them
