There is no reason why you cannot meet with just as good
success, if you will try our method, as follows:
The “ Hawthorne Library Certificates," which we send you (FREE,) are to be placed in the hands of your pupils, each one acting as a representative in obtaining subscriptions for his school library. Some pupils will dispose of only two or three, while others will sell as many as ten or fifteen shares.
The subscriber is given a certificate of his subscription and his name is written in the blank space for that purpose, and the certificate is then signed by the pupil.
This work has a good effect on the pupil, making him feel that he is an important factor in securing a library for his school, thereby stimulating his interest in the matter.
One teacher writes us that the entire amount ($10.co) was raised in two hours, by this method, but everyone, of course, cannot expect such excellent results as this : the average time being from four to ten days.
You are under no ob ation, do not enter into any contract to order a library unless you succeed in disposing of the certificates. Less than 1% of those who try to secure a library by our method are unsuccessful and return the certificates to us.
Write to us to-day for circulars, certificates and catalogue. (Free.)

What Does it Mean?
Aggravate is often erroneously used in the sense of provoke, exasperate.
Aggravate means an increase in weight or inton. sity, to become worse or more burdensome.
The ills and burdens of school teaching become worse and more burdensome by the continued use of poor lead pencils.

When the Best Books are decided upon, they should be read complete. Abstracts and epitomes are but the bones of books without the flesh, and all selections and extracts are nothing more than specimens—and who shall judge of a house by a specirien brick ? Selections may be gems, but they almost invariably lose lustre by being torn from their settings.

The custom of giving pupils some little token at the close of school is an excellent one, and teachers everywhere observe it. It has been, however, difficult to secure appropriate gifts -- something attractive, which would be kept, without too great cost. The want is supplied by

On the face of first is printed the name of school, town, teachers, date, officers, etc., 8.8 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 without crowding.

A new feature, which will render them much more valuable than ever before, is now provided for our Souvenirs. It consists in copying and transferring to the title card of the Souvenir the teacher's photograph. Those ordering Souvenirs with photograph should send a cabinet-sized photograph from which to copy, and make extra remittance of 25 per cent of the regular price for the number of Souvenirs required.
