A MEMORIAL. An appropriate memorial to Lewis Carroll, the author of "Alice in Wonderland,” is to take the form of an endowment of a cot in the Hospital for Sick Children, London. It is to be known as the “ Alice in Wonderland Cot." The sum of one thousand pounds will be necessary to establish this memorial. Any who desire to aid in this movement to commemorate one who is dear to all children and who, himself, was full of kindly sympathy for the suffering little ones can send subscriptions to The Macmillan Company, 66 Fifth Avenue, N.

THE COMPLETE POCKET-GUIDE TO EUROPE. Edited by Edmund Clarence Stedman and Dr. Thomas L. Stedman. 1 Vol., full leather bind. ing. Price, $1.25, postpaid.

This guide is a thoroughly revised edition for 1898 of the well-known “ Cassell's Pocket Guide to Europe." The work needs no special Introduction to frequent travelers, for by them It has been thoroughly tested and the indication of their approval is its popularity.

It is complete, concise and handy, being so compact as to be carried in a man's coat or hip pocket, or in a woman's dress pocket or muff - an advantago apprecia:ed by a trarelor.

Mrs. ELIZABETH WHEELOCK, Magnolia, Iowa, in the following letter describes her recovery from a very critical condition:

“ DEAR MRS. PINKHAM: I have been taking your Vegetable Compound, and

am now ready to sound

its praises. It has done wonders for me in relieving me of a tumor.

“My health has been poor for three years. Change of life

was working upon me.

I was very much bloated

and was a burden to myself. Was troubled with smothering spells, also palpitation of the heart and that bearing-down feel. ing, and could not be on my feet much.

I was growing worse all the time, until I took your medicine.

“After taking three boxes of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Lozenges, the tumor passed from me.

“My health has been better ever since, can now walk quite a distance and am troubled no more with palpitation of the heart or bloating. I recommend your medicine to all sufferers from female troubles."

It is hardly reasonable to suppose that any one can doubt the efficiency of Mrs. Pinkham's methods and medicine in the face of the tremendous volume of testimony.

SEED.TRAVELERS. ByC. M. WEED. Boston: Cinn & Co.

This book consists of a series of simple discussions of tho more important methods by which seeds are dispersed. The subject as a whole is treated in a palu"al and logical way, the first part dealing wich the “Wind as a Seed Distributer," the second with “Seed Dis. semination by Birds," and the 'third with “Seed Dispersal by Spines and Hookg.” The familiar plants of the northern states have been chosen for these object lessons, and the aim of the writer has been to lead the children who read these essays to fuller observation of the significance of the simplest facts of nature.

A MENTAL ARITHMETIC. By W. J. Milne, Ph.D., President of the New York State Nor. mal College, Albany, N.Y. Cloth, 12mo, 176 pages. Price, 35 cents. New York: American Book Company.

A few years since grammars were banished from the schoo)-room- and restored; then the spelling book was tabooed for a decade or so, and was likewise restored. The old mental arithmetic shared the banishment of the grammar and spelling book, but it has only been partially restored to its former place and favor in the schools. Of late, however, atten. tion has been called to the fact that, in much of the modern teaching, children do not show reasoning powers of so high an order as were to be found in the schools of a generation ago. Much of this logs is chargeable to the lack of drill formerly given in the study of mental arithmetic. Hence, to correct this defect, the restoration of this branch is demanded.

This new text-book will do much to aid and encourage the study of mental arithmetic in our schools. It embodies the latest methods of presenting the subject, and supplies abun. dant and carefully gradod examples in the fundamental processes of arithmetic. At the end are a list of miscellaneous problems, and tables of weights and measures. The book is so planned that it may be used to supplement any series of school arithmetics, or for inde. pendent work. While it is elementary enough for beginners, the gradation is such that pupils will imperceptibly find the quality of the work furnished strong and rugged enough to employ and test their best efforts.

HISTORY have had remarkable memories. A slight investigation will show that the most successful business men are possessed of wonderful memories. The training of the memory should be the basis of education. The demands of commercial life are dally becoming more onerous: more detalls must be mastered - more facts and figures remembered. Only the possessor of a powerful memory can win and hold a chlet position in the world of work. Price, $1.00. Post paid on receipt of price. LACONIC PUBLISHING CO., 123 Liberty Bt., N.Y.
