NEW EDITION FOR NEW CODE, 1875. John Heywood's Complete Series of Home Lesson Books,
for use in Public Elementary Schools, in Six Books, corresponding to the Six Standards of the New Code, 1875. By ALFONZO GARDINER, Head Master of the Outcote-Bank Board School (Huddersfield School Board). Author of “Acoustics, Light, and Heat,” “Magnetism and Electricity,' “Electricity," in • Extra Subject" Series, “The
Standard Lesson Series,” &c. The Books in this Series, now so largely used in the Public Elementary Schools of the country, have been thoroughly revised and entirely rewritten, so as to adapt them to the requirements of the Revised Edition of the Code.
The new features are : (1)—Simplification of Standards I. and II. (2)—Lessons for only 42 school weeks, thus leaving a few weeks for revi.
sion of the Grammar, Geography, or History, before the examination. (3)—Special Lessons in Grammar and Geography, for Standards II. and
III. (4) An arrangement of the Geography in Standards IV. to VI., so that it can be taken either as laid down in the Code, or as a THREE YEARS'
This is a distinguishing feature of the series, and cannot fail to be appreciated, especially in small schools. (5)-The new Arithmetical requirements of Standard V. are fully provided
for. (6)—The Literary requirements of Standards IV. to VI., including both
pieces for repetition, and an explanation of "meanings and allusions, is another useful and important feature. From four to six pieces of suitable poetry will be found in each book, fully anuotated. In schools where expense is an object, this will be a great help to both teacher
and pupil. (7)—An entirely new and corrected edition of the keys in six books (one for
each Standard) at 2d. each. Great care has been taken to make these
keys accurate. (8)—Many other alterations, several of which are the suggestions of
practical teachers, will be observed on comparison of the new edition
with the old one. It may fairly be said that this edition of the Home Lesson Books will be the cheapest, the most useful, and the most helpful series of text books for children's use that has ever been presented to the profession.

Continued. “The Historic Reader' is a happy idea, well worked out.
The editor calls the chief historians of Great Britain to the front, one by oue, lets each speak for himself in some great event or epoch, ant links all together by an explanatory chronological chain There is literary culture and literary knowledge in this method of becoming introduced to history. Altogether, the Manchester Historic Reader' is a pleasing and satisfactory novelty."-School Board Chronicle.

“In these two books, together comprising 480pp., we have some flesh on the bones. * We can warmly commend this work as a decided step in advance in the matter of reading books for the higher classes in schools."--National Schoolmaster. The Scripture Reading Book. Containing a Series of Lessons from Holy Scripture for the use
of Schools and Private Families. By the Rev. A. ADAMS, M.A., Rector of St. Thomas's Manchester. F'cap 8vo, bound in strong cloth, 1s. 6d.-The SCRIPTORE READING Book is to enable teachers to put into the hands of their scholars a series of narratives, didactic and prophetical selections from Holy Scripture, which will give a comprehensive view of the sacred volume without necessitating its constant use. At the same time it should be remembered that it is not intended to attempt to drive the Bible from the school, but rather to form a basis upon which the future
study of the Bible may become more easy and profitable. “This volume contains a capital collection of readings from Scripture in the language of the Bible. There is no comment that is left to the teacher himself. To those who object to certain passages in the Bible we can commend this volume. The selections do credit to the judgment of the compiler, and any teacher will be able to make a selection of readings for different classes.-Educational Reporter.
“Mr. Adams has very cleverly constructed one continuous narrative from the four Gospels, without any alteration from the text. Beyond question the editor has done his work well."-School Board Chronicle,
