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 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. A., Chicago, Ill.

but such as are treated are handled vigorously and practically and others, such as public finance and taxation, which cannot be satisfactorily discussed in an elementary text, are frankly omitted. The student is thus not trifled with, but taught to look upon his work seriously. Controverted points again are handled independently and where opinion is nearly evenly balanced both sides have been presented as fully as possible. We are impressed with the directness, vigor and common sense of this treatise which we confidently predict will make its way to a foremost place among our economic text-books. American Book Co.

-Carpenter's GEOGRAPHICAL READER, Asia, by Frank G. Carpenter (304 pp.; 60c.), presents the results of a two years' tour through that continent by the author. Many of the descriptions were written on the spot by the visitor, and they are not only exceedingly graphic, but present such aspects of life in different countries of this great continent as afford most interest and instruction to young readers. Mr. Carpenter writes entertainingly, with a quick eye for what is most characteristic, and his book has a freshness and charm which we do not expect to find in a 'Reader.” The colored map and numerous half-tone illustrations add much to the attractiveness of the book.

-STORIES OF MISSOURI, by John R. Musick (288 pp.; Soc), continues an interesting series of state histories which will do much to improve the teaching of United States History. Mr. Musick is a practiced writer, known as the author of the Columbian historical novels, and he has at his command a series of novel and stirring events which might give effectiveness even to the composition of a novice. He has made good use of them, and few who begin the book will be willing to lay it down before the last page has been read. The adventures of the early explorers and settlers, the tales of the early schoolmasters, the rangers, the pilgrims and the mormons, the slavery debates and the civil war all contribute distinctive material for this varied and delightful history.

-Bible ReaDINGS FOR SCHOOLS, by Nathan C. Schaeffer (217 pp.; 35c.), arranges the selections under the rubrics, narratives, parables, sayings and discourses, the law, selected psalms, proverbs, from the prophets and selected topics. Thus both the Old and New Testament are chosen from, and the purpose of the book to afford ethical inspiration and guidance is apparent.

-A Brief LATIN GRAMMAR, by W. D. Mooney (272 pp.). has been made by omitting exceptional usages, stating the leading facts simply and concisely, and reducing the quotations. The examples are taken from the classics usually read first. Peter Paul Book Co., Buffalo, N. Y.

-Heart Tones, and other Poems, by D. O'Kelly Branden, (169 pp.; $1.25), comes from a young Catholic writer who has been making his way for some years as a contributor to the eastern press. Rev. Dominick Brennan, who has written under several press names, is director of St. Mary's Preparatory College, in charge of the Passionist Fathers, at Dunkirk, N. Y., and a pupil of Brother Azarias, whose writings have attained large popularity. The volume before us is a collection of miscellaneous verse, classified under the heads, poems of the sentiments, patriotic poems, and visions of St. Paul of the Cross. About half the book is religious, the prevailing tone of which is related to suffering and sorrow, themes of the passion of Christ. We discover the same tone pervading the poems of the sentiments. One selection shall illustrate it. This is called

There is no Peace.
Deep in the sullen, surging ocean

Ever mad battle is raging.
High in the murky sky the storm fiends

War elemental are waging.
Far in the matted, lawless jungle

Lion is lamb devouring,
Low in the languid, sleeping valley

Vulture o'er victim is hovering.

-The Library Journal, ($5.00 per year, 59 Duane St., N. Y.) is recognized as the foremost periodical in its field now published. Of course with the development of library technique a good deal of each issue is taken up with matters of management and details important to librarians, and it has made itself indispensable to intelligent workers in this field. It has besides much of interest to general readers and especially to teachers. Every year it issues a school number (in April this year) devoted largely to the relations of schools and libraries. Library workers all over the country--and they are fortunately increasing rapidly at present-contribute to it, and from it derive fresh stimulus as well as knowledge of the latest devices and improvements in library art.

-McClure's Magazine for June opens with an article by Prof. S. P. Langley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, describing the "flying-machine" that he himself has lately completed, after ten years of laborious experiment, and which is the first "flying-machine'' ever made by man that has actually flown. Apropos of the sixtieth anniversary of the reign of Queen Victoria, it contains a series of life portraits of the Queen, the earliest showing her, a child on her mother's lap, at the age of two years; the next at four, the next at five, and so on, almost year by year, down to the present day. The reproductions are, in most instances, directly from the originals, and by the finest process. No such series has ever been published before.

--- The Library Journal ranks foremost in the English lan. guage of publications devoted to library, science and technique, Libraries have long recognized it as indispensable for their work, and it appeals to all interested in the management of circulating libraries, or in the topics connected with such work. The April issue was distinctively a school number, containing a symposium on Work between Libraries and schools with numerous articles on phases of library work in connection with public schools. It is published at 59 Duane St., New York; yearly subscribtion $5.00.

-William J. Shearer, superintendent of schools at Elizabeth, N. J., has evolved a system for grading students in the public schools which allows, more than any other ever has, for the individuality of the student. The success of his system has attracted to it the attention of all thoughtful educators, and he has written in the June Atlantic a most interesting and instructive description of it under the title "The Lock-Step in the Public School.” Incidentally he shows the weak points in the usual grading system, and points out effective remedies.

- The Northwestern Journal of Education, published at Lincoln, Neb., is distinguishing itself by its special numbers. The July issue is devoted to "The Physical Child," and contains valuable papers on games, kindergarten games, physical training, defects of hearing, sight, speech, foods, clothing, health and the schoolhouse.

-Silver, Burdette & Co. aunounce the "Beacon Series of Vocal Selections," a number of choice new selections admirably adapted for commencement and memorial day use. Among them is a spirited song, No. 99. "The Marathon

Race," which can hardly fail to attract attention at the I present time.
