A special war edition of Prof. James A. Harrison's notable book on the Spanish Peninsula, from the earliest times to the present critical hour, is announced for immediate publication by the Werner Co., Akron, Ohio.

The revision of Prof. Harrison's "History of Spain," a book as entertaining as it is accurate, is a matter which would attract attention and general interest among the readers and purchasers of good books at any time. The announcement coming at this juncture proclaims nothing short of an "event" in the world of letters; and the appearance of the new book will be awaited with a ten-fold degree of interest.

dom presents to its fascinated reader such a panorama of different nationalities, so many vicissitudes of fortune, such dazzling heights of splendid power, such a sorrowful spectacle of uninterrupted decay as does that of Spain. It is the story of overweening pride, coupled with impotency; of treachery and cruelty chained fast to ritual and dogma.

The recital is relieved now and again by gleams and flashes of better things; brief periods when the arts and sciences flourished in Spain as nowhere else in Europe, when she was the home of chivalry, sculpture, painting and discovery.

Spain is the land of romance, story and song. No European country is more interesting to visit, or excites in the intelligent observer such mingled feelings of admiration, wonder, dread and horror.

The author, Prof. Harrison, who has long held the Chair of History and Modern Languages in Washington and Lee University, is well and favorably known as a scholar and writer.

He has taken advantage of the splendid opportunity offered, and has produced a book at once interesting and authoritative. It stands, without question, the best brief history of Spain yet written.

Prof. Harrison's work gains much from the new supplementary chapters and special introduction for the present war edition contributed by a well informed and cultured writer, a widely read student of history.

The book is profusely and interestingly illustrated. It appears in striking and emblematic dress, the first of the "Flag Series" the Werner Co. purpose bringing out, now announced for the first time. The book is an 8vo., contains between seven and eight hundred pages, price $1.75.

Messrs. Macmillan & Co., New York, send out a new and revised edition, with many additions, of the popular work entitled "Social Evolution,' by Benjamin Kidd. It is a plain, clear, honest discussion of conditions as they exist the world over among progressive nations. The author is no alarmist.

He believes the race is advancing, and the world growing wiser and better, and that the best is yet to be achieved. The writing is not that of a partizan, but of a student of history, past and present.

The Awakening of a Nation; or, Mexico of To-day," by Mr. C. F. Lummis, is published by Messrs. Harper & Bros., New York. The book describes the wonderful progress of Mexico during the last twenty years.

Hereafter the Funk & Wagualls Company, New York and London, will be the sole publishers of the famous Loisette Memory MORTON, PHILLIPS & CO., System," presented in Professor A. Loisette's remarkable book, "Assimilative Memory; or, How to Attend and Never Forget." Professor Loisette's extraordinary success in perfecting more or less faulty memoris is attested by prominent educators and professional, scientific and business men throughout the world. Heretofore the secrets of the system have been most 'carefully guarded. The announcement that the system will now be offered to the public at a nominal sum will be welcomed by many who have previously felt unable to subscribe for the exercises.

The poorest natural memories i:ave been effectively trained by this original system. Surprising results have, indeed, attended

only a slight practice of its methods.

Memories which were exceedingly unre

tentive have been made to easily and

accurately remember names, places, dates,

principles, facts, and prose or poetry. One

of the most valuable features of this system

is its method by which a book or article can

be thoroughly remembered after a single reading. It is also of material assistance in the study of foreign languages. Students of music, both instrumental and vocal, have found the Loisette system of considerable assistance in their work.

There are methods, too, by application of which public speakers can easily speak without use of notes, and by which listeners can retain a clear outline in their minds of all that is said.

The book is 12mo, cloth, and will be sold at the reduced price of $2.50 net. The original price was $5.00. Special inducements are offered to schools.


The Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Hunter, Rose Company, Limited, will be held at the Company's Office, Temple Building, Toronto, on Tuesday, June 21st, at 11 o'clock a.m.

'Many books have been published on the Care of the Sick by medical men and by nurses, but, for the comprehensiveness of its contents and general utility, none has ever equalled the volume now under consideration. Dr. Billroth is a medical scientist of world-wide reputation, is Professor of Surgery in Vienna-it is not often that a man of his position will condescend to produce a book for the use of families and nurses. The translation is excellently well done—it has a large number of diagrams for the help of the reader, those dealing with bandaging and splints being especially useful. Dr. Billroth deals with everything connected with the science and art of nursing, whether in the home, hospital, or in epidemics; and the chapter on the care of nervous patients and those mentally diseased, of great value. A special chapter is devoted to aid in accidents, and a whole chapter to the important subject of food and diet. No details are considered too small or unimportant. Both author and translator may be congratulated on the admirable

way in which their work has been done; those who wish to practice nursing in private or in hospitals should certainly study it carefully, and keep it at hand ready for reference in the various emergencies which they will have to encounter."-The Lady's Pictorial.

"Nurse Woodford chose 'The Care of the Sick,' by Dr. Billroth, as her Prize in the Post-Card Examination Series; and Nurse Robinson 'The Life and Works of Shakespeare,' both charming books.” THE NURSING RECORD.

"Dr. Billroth's admirable work will be read with interest by Medical Men, and by Professional and Amateur Nurses. It contains the Main Principles to be observed in the Care of the Sick, clearly laid down, and in accord with both sense and science."-Morning Post.

some hundreds of copies awaited its issue. The book is one of the greatest interest and value. There are in it 12 full-page half-tone plates— portraits and historic scenes and 23 pen-and-ink portraits by Mr. F. H. Brigden. In all, including the group pictures there are shown the portraits, with names, of nearly 100 men who have played their part in the making (or in Riel's attempted un-making) of the West. It is the best picture-gallery of the West yet given to the public.
