FAIRYLAND OF FLOWERS. I believe teachers will find the Fairyland of Flowers very helpful. I know from my experience with teachers, that it is just what most teachers need. Plant study is the easiest and most promising division of nature study and such a book will help teachers who know nothing about plants, if they will study the plants and not merely the books. The illustrations are unusually good. Busy teachers who want to correlate nature study with literature will find the poems and stories interwoven with the plant descriptions, very helpful. They help teachers to realize that plants are more than mere structures to be picked apart or analyzed and described.

“ It has a clean cut symmetrical look that pleases the eye, and compared to which a chain wheel seems to be encumbered and complicated.

New York Herald. “The construction of the new chainless wheel is simplicity itself.

Boston Journal. “Viewed from whatever standpoint, the new wheel represents the highest form of a bicycle development." - Philadelphia Ledger.

" The factory that has turned out this novelty is more than twice as large as any bicycle establishment in existence, and for twenty-one years has achieved one unbroken series of successes. Chicago Inter-Ocean.

“ It will run longer with a single turn of the cranks than the easiest running wheel now in use." - Philadelphia Press.

“All the driving mechanism is enclosed, so that it is impossible for dust to get in the bearings." New Orleans Picayune.

“The wheel runs smoothly, easily and is admirable in up grade work. It's a beauty and no mistake.” - Buffalo Commercial. It costs more, to be sure, but then good things always come high.

Evening Gazette, Haverhill, Mass. “The wheel is a model of grace and beauty." · Baltimore American. “Finest bicycle ever made and easiest to propel." —New York Press.

The Library received. The children are satisfied with it in every respect. I find it a great help in the school wvvik and also of great value as books of reference. When I first thought of getting a Library I had but slight hopes of succeeding. I have only thirteen scholars in a small country school.
