It is both natural and fitting that the boys and girls of America should be interested and familiar with the legends that have woven so much of poetry and romance about the life of the Red men. And when these sanciful tales are presented as a part of the life history of the little Red children they touch the kindred love of the marvelous in the civilized children of to-day with a peculiar closeness. All barriers of race and centuries of time fade away and the red and white children clasp hands in joy and delight in their mutual love of Nature's wonder-tales.

The School Souvenirs Consist of two cards tied together with silk cord. On the face of first is printed the name of school, town, teacher, date, officers, etc., as may be desired, in the brightest gold letters, and on the second the names of the pupils. Heavy embossed cards are used and the Souvenirs are gotten out in a highly artistic manner. Where two cards are not sufficient, additional cards are attached so as to accommodate all the names of the pupils without crowding.
Remembe: we now furnish Three Styles of Souvenirs, all of the same size and with the names of teacher, officers and pupils, differing only in the style of the outside card. Notice the price of each and mention the one wanted in your order. These three are called
