Cloth, small 4to, 124 pages 55 cents
A book of blank schedules, adapted to Gray’s Botanies, for pupils’ use in writing and preserving brief systematic descriptions of the plants analyzed by them in field or class work. Space is allowed for descriptions of about one hundred and twenty-four plants with an alphabetical index.
An analytical arrangement of botanical terms is provided, in which the words defined are illustrated by small wood cuts, which show at a glance the characteristics named in the definition.
By using the Plant Analysis, pupils will become familiar with the meaning of botanical terms, and will learn how to apply these terms in botanical descriptions.
Apgar’s Trees of the Northern United States
Their Study, Description, and Determination.
For the use of Schools and
Private Students. By AUSTIN C. APGAR.
Cloth, 12mo, 224 pages. Copiously Illustrated $1.00
This work has been prepared as an accessory to the study of Botany, and to assist and encourage teachers in introducing into their classes instruction in Nature Study. The trees of our forests, lawns, yards, orchards, streets, borders and parks afford a most favorable and fruitful field for the purposes of such study. They are real objects of nature, easily accessible, and of such a character as to admit of being studied at all seasons and in all localities. Besides, the subject is one of general and increasing interest, and one that can be taught successfully by those who have had no regular scientific training.
Copies of either of the above books will be sent, prepaid, to any address on receipt of the price by the Publishers:

Elementary Manual of Chemistry
By F.H. STORER, S.B., A.M., and W.B. LINDSAY, A.B., B.S.
Cloth, 12mo, 453 pages. Illustrated. Price, $1.20
This work is the lineal descendant of the “Manual of Inorganic Chemistry” of Eliot and Storer, and the “Elementary Manual of Chemistry” of Eliot, Storer and Nichols. It is in fact the last named book thoroughly revised, rewritten and enlarged to represent the present condition of chemical knowledge and to meet the demands of American teachers for a class book on Chemistry, at once scientific in statement and clear in method.
The purpose of the book is to facilitate the study and teaching of Chemistry by the experimental and inductive method. It presents the leading facts and theories of the science in such simple and concise manner that they can be readily understood and applied by the student. The book is equally valuable in the class-room and the laboratory. The instructor will find in it the essentials of chemical science developed in easy and appropriate sequence, its facts and generalizations expressed accurately and scientifically as well as clearly, forcibly and elegantly.
