THE AMERICAN WOODs. Beautifully excib. ited by actual specimens in a novel and unique publication, by Romeyn B. Hough, B A., Lowville, N. Y.
The design of this work is to show in as compact and perfect a manner as possible the beauty and characteristic structure of the various timbers of our North American for. ests. For this purpose three thin slices-about two by five inches in size, and from one-eighti. eth to one two-bundreths inch thick-of each wcod are made, one transverse and two longi. tudinal (radial and tangential) to thế grain, showing both the heart and sapwood. These three exhibit the grain from all aspects, and, being so thin as to admit light through them, they reveal much that could not otherwise be seen, and that surprises even those who have spent a lifetime in wood.working, without ever hav. ing known how much there is that is wonderful and beautiful in the structure of word. They are exquisitely beautiful and instructive preparations.

Price, Boards, 30 cents; Cloth, 40 cents. 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 author's well-known charm in story-telling has never shown better than in this little book. The style is smooth, flowing and beautiful. Wind, stars, rain, snow, rainbows and the whole phenomena of nature are woven into charming stories which will feed the imagination without injuring the children. The book is illustrated by twentythree striking pictures, vivid with Indian life and activities.
