HE mind has been endowed with no more laudable or profitable ambition

than that of self-improvement. The educated man, in every walk of life, carries with him his own capital—a capital unaffected by monetary crises; an

investment whose interest is not regulated by the success of a speculation; a treasure which none can dispute and of which none can deprive him. It is the greatest source of pleasure and profit and is the best legacy he can leave to his children. A duty which every man owes to himself and his family is to provide a means for obtaining PRACTICAL EDUCATION which will enable them to fight successfully in the GREAT BATTLE OF LIFE. THE WERNER EDUCATOR WILL PROVE OF INESTIMABLE VALUE TO ALL SEEKING EDUCATION. To the student it will prove the equivalent of a college training; the business man will find it teeming with simple business laws and forms which may save him from bankruptcy; the lawyer, the doctor, the farmer, the laborer and the members of every home circle will find it a sure guide along the road to prosperity. * Best English Cloth, Gold Back and Side Stamps, Marbled Edges...

[ocr errors]

An accurate and graphic account of BISMARCK. A fitting memorial of one of the most extraordinary political careers in the history of the world.

A book that appeals not alone to the Patriot and

Hero Worshipper, but to every intelligent person Germain

interested in noting the upward steps of mankind.

Throws a searching light upon the condition of European affairs during the last fifty years. The recital of the events of such a life is not commonplace.

But the text is of no more importance than the

Illustrations, which are of the highest order.
Size, 12 x 15 inches.

The book is furnished with over SEVEN HUNDRED PICTURES, chiefly from photographs, and there are TWENTY FULLPAGE COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS, many of which are copyrighted by the publishers, and ARE FOUND NOWHERE ELSE THAN IN THIS BOOK.

Among these is a pencil sketch of Bismarck on his death-bed, by the only artist whom the Bismarck family permitted to visit the death chamber.

A noteworthy feature is the HISTORICAL CORRECTNESS of the Illustrations.

“GERMANY'S IRON CHANCELLOR” stands apart from all other publications on BISMARCK.

Affords a wonderful insight into the

POLICY AND CHARACTER OF ONE OF THE GREAT MAKERS OF HISTORY.

MANUAL
USEFUL
INFORMATION

[ocr errors]

HIS Manual presents in accessible form,

facts and figures of general interest to
teachers and scholars; to the man of

affairs, the student and the people at large. It contains not one useless or superfluous sentence. The grain has been sifted from the chaff; the precious metal extracted from the ore. In it will be found terse answers to thousands of questions, the solution of which is a matter of daily need to busy men. The work is designed as a compendium of useful knowledge, of problems not covered by other books, or of information that, to seek out personally, would require the possession of many volumes. The ruling idea in its preparation has been to furnish in as few words as possible such data as would be of service to men of inquiring minds, to scholars and to their instructors.

EMINENT EDUCATORS SAY. From G. B. HARRINGTON, Supt. Bureau County, Illinois:—“It is great." From J. M. GREENWOOD, Supt. City Schools, Kansas City, Mo.:—"Full to overflowing

from cover to cover." From CHAS. W. GROVES, Supt. Harvard, Ills.—“I know of no other book containing so

much carefully selected information presented in so apt a form.” From WILLIAM RICHARDSON, Supt. of Schools, Wichita, Kansas:—"It's scope is broad,

and its treatment of topics terse and direct.” From B. S. COVELL, County Supt. of Schools, Kandiyohi County, Minn:-“It is a store

house of important facts.” From FRANK H. HALL, Supt. Waukegan, Ill. :—"Am surprised and delighted by the amount

of valuable information it contains."
