Wisely's New Series of Grammars. By J. B. Wisely, A. M., Professor of Grammar and Composition in the Indiana State Normal School.


LANGUAGE FOR THE GRADES, 174 pages, Cloth, Illustrated. Price, 40 Cents.
A NEW ENGLISH GRAMMAR, 227 pages, Cloth. Price, 60 Cents.

LANGUAGE FOR THE GRADES deals with the problem of English as it should be presented in the grades from the time the child enters school to the end of the sixth year. It is based upon the idea that children in the grades need such work in language as will fix in them the habit of using good language.

A NEW ENGLISH GRAMMAR presents material for the seventh and eighth year grades of the common schools. The formal and arbitrary grammar work which pupils everywhere so much dislike, is banished from the class-room and the subject of grammar is made as interesting as history.

STUDIES IN THE SCIENCE OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR, is a book for advanced classes, high schools and academies. This book employs the searching of laboratory method. The problems are set, the material given, and the pupil set to build the material in accordance with the problem proposed. Revised and improved.


By Ellwood W. Kemp, Professor of History in the Indiana State Normal School; 300 pages; handsomely printed and bound; Cloth. Price, $1.00.

This book organizes history and shows how to apply the principles which underlie correct historical instruction.

The work during the first eight years of school life is definitely stated and model lessons given. The whole book is based upon the thought that to study history we must think it; to think it we must feel it, and in thinking it and feeling it we ourselves must be transformed by it. It has been received in the most favorable way by the public.


By Carrie B. Adams; 14 pages; bound in boards, with handsome cover design in four colors. Price, 35 cents. Special terms for introduction and in quantities.

The additional importance now being attached to music as a regular subject in our common schools renders such a book as the above a necessity. Mrs. Adams' experience in teaching the subject of music, and in training others for the work, has given her a practical insight into the needs of both teacher and pupil.

Her book is therefore full of tuneful exercises and pretty songs, all splendidly graded.


Arranged by Herman E. Owen, Supervisor of Music. Published in two sizes, heavy paper, strongly bound. No. 1. For the Grades.... Price, 5 cts. No. 2. For the High School and Academy.. Price, 10 cts. These little note books are prepared so the instruction may have permanent form. The pages are alternately blank and music-ruled. They are already immensely popular and many thousand copies are now in use in Indiana alone. Send stamps for samples.

One of the most unique ideas in the way of a help for teachers, and at the same time one of the most valuable, is Prof. C. M. Curry's "Reading Note Book." It is written with special reference to the REVISED INDIANA READERS, but teachers of reading everywhere will find it full of suggestions. It is arranged in the form of an encyclopedia, the name of every author and the title of every selection being entered. The chief facts in the author's career are given, and in most cases there are hints for further reading and biographical study. The main effort has, however, been expended in connection with the selections themselves. The circumstances connected with the writing, hints on the meaning or content, a series of questions designed to help a class in get ing at this meaning, and a few carefully prepared notes on passages likely to give trouble to the student are given in each article. In the judicious teacher's hands it becomes a great source of suggestion and inspiration. We have been enabled to put a maximum of material within a minimum of space. This "Note Book" was prepared by Professor Charles M. Curry. Many commendatory letters have been received from teachers and superintendents, all speaking in the highest terms of the helpfulness of this book. We take the liberty of quoting two of these letters:

From Lawrence MeTurnan, County Superintendent Madison County, Anderson, Ind.

I wish to say this aid to the teacher deserves the highest commendation from the teaches and pupils for whom it was written. It is a great help to me, and, I am sure. will be appreciated by the teachers of the State. Please allow me to congratulate you upon this work.

Some Pertinent Facts.

Many young people who feel the need of a better education are often at a great loss to know which college to attend. To them these pertinent facts should be of interest and assistance.


is a Fact

That it has sent out more graduates who have attained to distinction in the various avocations of life than any other similar institution.

That in this institution has been originated many of the educational methods which are considered the most practical of to-day. That it is now recognized as the leader of up-to-date, progressive methods of instruction.

That students who receive their training here are given a preference in the world, and experience less difficulty in securing desirable, wellpaying positions.

That no other institution of the kind maintains a more able body of trained and experienced teachers; and there is no other place where a student receives the same kindly, careful, personal attention, as is given him here.

That students are offered a grea er variety of studies to choose from for the one rate of tuition, than can be had elsewhere. That the library and apparatus at their command is more extensive.

That a course of study can be completed in this institution, better, in less time, and at less expenditure of money, than in any other similar institution.

That there is not a more pleasant and healthful town, possessing all modern improvements with delightful walks and drives, than Lebanon, Ohio. Its beautiful surroundings; its intelligent and hospitable people, who always manifest a deep interest in the comfort and welfare of the students, make Lebanon a most desirable place to attend school.

The cost to you of superior training, for which this school is noted, is not more than for ordinary training elsewhere.
