Ancient and Modern

Greek Prose Composition

By Henry Carr Pearson, A.B., Harvard; Shady Side Academy, Pittsburg, Pa. Price 90 Cents.

"Pearson's Greek Prose Composition seems to me an excellent book for use in schools. I would especially recommend, for work with Xenophon closed, the hundred or more exercises in Part III. These are expressed in idiomatic English, they are brief, and they give opportunity for practice in writing continuous narrative. Such writing the author encourages. Secondly, I like the lists of words for review practice distributed through the book. They give good opportunity for drill in forms, and convenient material for new exercises to be made by the teachers. Thirdly, the selection of points for grammatical study seems to be very wisely made,'

CHARLES P. PARKER, Instructor in Harvard University.

Xenophon's Cyropædia.

Abridged for Schools.

By C. W. Gleason, A.M., Roxbury Latin School.

Price $1.25.

An abridged edition of the Cyropædia which may alternate with, or in some cases be substituted for, the Anabasis. Only the more important passages have been included, thus shortening the work nearly one half. It is believed that the publication of this edition will make the reading of Xenophon's Cyropædia practicable in the classes of those teachers who have heretofore thought that the work was too long.

A Brief German Grammer

With Exercises

By Hjalmar Edgren, Ph.D., University of Nebraska, and Laurence Fossler, A.M., University of Nebraska,

Price 75 Cents.

Designed for college students, or for pupils of equivalent training in academic schools. It aims to prepare the way rapidly but thoroughly, for critical reading and for practice in writing and speaking, on the basis of a systematic knowledge of the essentials of German grammer and syntax and the elements of a German vocabulary rationally acquired. Besides numerous novel features of arrangement and method-features which are logical and practical—of special importance is the introduction of GERMAN WORD FORMATION and of GERMAN-ENGLISH SOUND RELATIONS which will be found of immediate practical benefit to students and will quicken a desire for a more serious study of German.

But your order

Must Reach us Before April 1st., 1898.


Is published at Dansville, N. Y. It is read by over 100,000 teachers each month; is the largest, most complete most widely circulated and most prosperous educational journal in the world. It has recently been enlarged and improved, and the price is to be increased to $1.00 on the 15th day of January, 1898. As a result of these recent improvements and contemplated increase in the price,new subscriptions are being received in unheard-of numbers. County and city superintendents are lavish in their recommendation of it to their teachers. By a fortunate arrangement with the publishers of this excellent paper and of Craig's Question Book we are enabled to make the liberal offer above announced. If you are not familiar with NORMAL INSTRUCTOR, and would like to see a copy, send direct to the publishers for one.


Craig's is the Prince of all Question Books. It is larger, better made, more thorough, more practical, more reliable than any other Ques ion Book ever published. Nearly 200,000 copies have been purchased by the teachers of America, and it would be hard to imagine any way by which they could have secured so much benefit from any one book. It treats the very subjects on which you need help, and can always be relied upon.

It weighs nearly two pounds, has 520 pages, and contains 8,200 questions and answers fully covering all the subjects taught in our common schools. It is fully revised up to date, is well bound in cloth, and sells everywhere at $1.64 postpaid. It can be procured from us in combination with this publication and NORMAL INSTRUCTOR for only $1.50.

Remember that $1.50 gets this publication one year, NORMAL INSTRUCTOR for the same period, together with Craig's Question Book postpaid, but you must order before April 1st, 1898.

Never in the history of the world have teachers been given an opportunity to secure so much REAL VALUE for so little money as by taking advantage of this offer. We regard ourselves as being particularly fortunate in being able to place the matter before you on such liberal terms, and only regret that the time during which it is to continue is so short. It is ample, however, if all will act promptly. WE NOT ONLY INVITE YOU TO SUBSCRIBE OR RENEW AT ABOVE COMBINATION RATE, but ask that you invite your friends to subscribe also. Address all orders to

Southern Educational Journal, Atlanta, Ga.
