THE SUGGESTIVE MENTAL ARITHMETIC FOR TEACHERS.
By ALBERT ELSOM.
Complete Edition, 136 pp., in Cloth Boards, 2/-. Or in two parts. Part I. for Stds. I. to III., limp cloth, 1/2. Part II., for Stds. IV. to VII., limp cloth, 1/4. Mental Arithmetic is a subject in which any class or any school may excel if only the teaching be systematic. Many books on this subject have been published, but, as a rule, they consist of page after page of examples often well graduated, but their very multitude and the sameness in the appearance of the pages are found wearisome, and the book is soon laid aside. For this reason the author has laid down a definite amount of work for each lesson. If some of the lessons appear short, it must be remembered that this is a SUGGESTIVE MENTAL ARITHMETIC. For each example set down here the teacher may often give half-a-dozen on the same model.
NEEDLEWORK PRACTICALLY EXPLAINED.
By HARRIETT A. HARTLEY, B.A.
A Manual in Four Graduated Courses, for the use of Student Teachers. Illustrated with upwards of 300 Diagrams from Designs by the Authoress, including numerous Full-page Patterns and Folding Plates.
195 pages, size 10 × 7 inches. Printed in two Colours (Black and Red), and tastefully Bound in Art Vellum, 4/6 net.
This book has been specially drawn up for the use of Pupil Teachers, and those who are preparing for the King's Scholarship Examination. The writer has endeavoured to set forth clearly, by the aid of a large number of diagrams, the various stitches and processes used in Plain Needlework leading up to this Examination. It is particularly suitable for Students in Secondary Schools.
The subject matter is arranged in four graduated courses, each of which is planned out as one year's work. It is hoped that young teachers will find the diagrams an aid when instructing the little ones in the elements of sewing.
DOMESTIC ECONOMY FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.
By Mrs. ADA COLLEY.
202 pages and 30 Illustrations, Crown 8vo, in Cloth Boards, 2/6.
In compiling this book the Authoress has taken the greatest care to avoid following on the lines of previous works. It will be found particularly suited for Pupil Teachers, and also to Students of the first year in Training Colleges. All the facts needful for the Scholarship Examinations are set out in an interesting way, which, together with the clearness of style, will at once make the lessons plain to the Student.
PUPIL TEACHERS' SCHOOL MANAGEMENT.

Mr. Bailey, who is an instructor in School Management, has had much experience, and his book will prove a veritable boon to Pupil Teachers.

This is a strong plea in favour of re-organising our educational system, and placing it under the central control of a State Department. The author's arguments will be found very clear and convincing.

Part II. for Years III. and IV., 8d.
Part I. for Years I. and II., 6d. The compiler was led to undertake this work in the belief that many P.T. Instructors, as well as Head Masters and Mistresses, responsible for their tuition, would welcome a suitable and ample set of Exercises, which would largely economise the time of the classes by enabling the teachers to at once indicate the work to be prepared at home. The books may also be used in actual class teaching, in this way saving much time. BROWNS' PUPIL TEACHERS' CRITICISM LESSONS RECORD. Meets all requirements of the Code. 1/- net.
