A Notable
Contribution to
Kindergarten and
Primary Education

to and through



Five years ago Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator, opened her first “House of Childhood” (Casa dei Bambinı) in Rome, and began to apply her revolutionary methods of education to the teaching of little children. To-day her methods are transforming the schools of Italy, and are making rapid progress in other countries. The method aims toward the full functional development of the individual child. Remarkable attainments in reading, writing and arithmetic result naturally from a basic sense training method.

For anything like a complete understanding of the spirit, methods and materials of this wonderful system, it is necessary to read Dr. Montessori's book itself, which is glowing with the inspiration of a great idea, and is thorough in its treatment of every detail.

Every American teacher and every mother of little children should own and read this remarkable book. The accompanying coupon, properly signed, and enclosing 20 cents, will bring to you a descriptive booklet of absorbing interest. You should mail the coupon to-day.

Height 5 inches “ Clipless "'--that one word ought to tell the story. This unique little instrument fastens together from two to ten sheets of paper instantly and without a clip; the paper itself forms the fastening.

Either the stand machine, as shown above, or the hand machine, like a punch, does the same thing. Each is made of the finest tool steel, as carefully as a surgical instrument. Guaranteed for five years.

The coupon above is just as good as 50 cents to you. Use it. You will wonder how you ever got along without a Clipless."

With one of these machines on your desk it is the simplest
at one move. Think what that will save you- no lost
sheets - no hunting for pins or clips, each set of papers
when desired. Get a Clipless” when you are in Chicago.
