Elementary Lessons in English.

By Mrs. N. L. KNOX-HEATH.

PART FIRST: "How to Speak and Write Correctly."

12mo. Cloth. 192 pages. Mailing Price, 45 cents; Introduction, 40 cents; allowance in exchange, 15 cents.

THIS part contains no technical grammar. It is designed to give children such knowledge of the English language as will enable them to speak and write it with accuracy and force.

PART FIRST: Teachers' Edition. 12mo. Cloth. 323 pages. Mailing Price, 70 cents; Introduction and Teachers' Price, 60 cents.

The teachers' edition contains the entire text of the pupils' book, and in addition full directions and suggestions for conducting the work to the best advantage.

PART SECOND: "The Parts of Speech and How to Use Them." ix + 396 pages. Mailing price, 70 cents; for introduction, 60 cents; allowance for old book in exchange, 20 cents.

This book contains all the technical grammar that is required below the high school grade. Like Part First, it has a practical aim, -the knowledge of our language and the ability to use it. The best means to this end have been ingeniously devised and adopted. The needs of those who leave school before completing the course have been carefully studied.

PART SECOND: Teachers' Edition. 12mo. Paper. 95 pages. Introduction and Teachers' Price, 15 cents.

This book consists of Oral Lessons, Observation Lessons, Exercises, Dictations, Vocabulary Lessons, Exercises in Parsing, Reviews, Cautions, Subjects and Plans, and, in short, everything required to elucidate and supplement the pupil's book. The Appendix contains Business Forms and Models for Letters, with a List of Books for Children.

S. T. Dutton, Supt. of Schools, | pals, I have no doubt of their being New Haven, Conn.: The Knox-Heath the best text-books for languageLanguage Series has been in use in teaching now in the market. New Haven, the first book for five years, the second book for one year. From my observation of the results attained by their use, and from the testimonies of teachers and princi

They are better suited to develop power in the correct use of English, and at the same time furnish teachers with a better method, than any other books I have seen. (Oct. 1887.)

Whitney's Essentials of English Grammar.

For the Use of High Schools, Academies, and the Upper Grades of Grammar Schools. With a Supplement of Extracts for practice in parsing. By Prof. W. D. WHITNEY, of Yale College. 12mo. Cloth. 260 pages. Mailing Price, 85 cents; Introduction, 75 cents: Allowance for old book, 25 cents.

THIS HIS is an English grammar of the English language, prepared by the best philologist in the country. It is clear, practical, and complete. It proceeds from facts to principles, and from these to classifications and definitions. Mechanical forms, unnecessary classifications, and abstract definitions are avoided.

The exercises, selected from the best English writers, leave none of the usual and regular forms of English structure untouched.

The facts of English grammar are presented in such a way as to lay the best foundation for the further and higher study of language in all its departments.

F. J. Child, Prof. of English, Harvard University: I do not know that I ever before saw an English grammar which I would permit my children to look into, so great the chance

has been that they would learn nothing or be taught something false. I regarded Prof. Whitney's undertaking and book as a service to humanity as well as to education.

Enunciation and Articulation.

A Practical Manual for Teachers and Schools. By ELLA M. BOYCE, Supt. of Schools, Bradford, Pa. 12mo. Boards. vi+88 pages. Mailing Price, 35 cents; Introduction Price, 30 cents.

EVERY ONE will concede that one of the greatest faults in our

public schools is their failure to cultivate clear-cut speech. Correct enunciation requires years of practice, and only by daily drill, with constant effort on the part of the pupil and constant watchfulness on the part of the teacher, can it ever be secured.

The exercises in this little work have been tested in the schools for two years, and the results of the drill have received the praise and congratulations of both school authorities and parents.

A. H. Fetterolf, Pres. Girard get it into general use as soon as College, Philadelphia: I wish to possible.
