W. J. Rodgers of Nevada County held his institute in Grass Valley April 7-11. Hon. Thomas J. Kirk, superin. tendent of public instruction, Prof. A. B. Coffey of Stanford University, Professor Augsburg of Oakland, and others assisted. "The Grass Valley Tidings" speaks of Augsburg's work as follows:

"Prof. D. R. Augsburg is recognized as a leader in draw. ing. He is plain spoken and did not hesitate to ask the ladies to remove their hats when he took the floor, much to the satisfaction of those oceupying the rear seats. is full of enthusiasm on his subject, which he brightens by happy introductions of incidental ideas that make his talks peculiarly interesting. He also illustrates his ideas by drawings, which speak with great significance. In his remarks he dwelt on the fundamental principles which lie at the bottom of drawing in whatever way the subject might be presented.

"After a recess of a few minutes Mrs. Kleine rendered very sweetly a vocal solo, and was followed by Prof. Alex. B. Coffey of the University of Washington. He is a man of strong personality and from the time he took the floor till noon intermission held the undivided attention of the teachers. His talk was general, but very interesting, and he has a peculiar way of "hitting the nail on the head"

ton, compiler; Butler, Sheldon & Co., publishers. I use the word compiler advisedly. Text-books are not created. They are compiled. There is no writing of original matter. Eliza Morton has done ber work well. She has produced a better book than Frye's, a better book than Tarbell's, a better book than Redway's and Hinman's, better than Tarr's and McMurry's. There is a definite statement under each topic. When the pupil studies a topic there is a definite result. He has more than training; he bas a fact or two that may be of service. The illustrations are new, the maps are the best ever reproduced. The only criticism is that the entire matter in the primary and advanced should be in one book, and that a book of less than one hundred pages. It is a shame to dilute the facts of geography to such an extent that pupil must buy so much waste paper to get so few facts. A text-book in geography should not be a geographical reader. However, as a book in competition with books now on the market, Morton's is far in advance of the others.

The ability of the American engineer to design steel structures of great strength and pleasing architectural effect is shown in the eight half-tones on the handsome souvenir mailing card issued by the Joseph Dixon Crucible Company of Jersey City, N. J. The card is a piece of artistic advertising on the part of the company, and will prove of decided interest to constructing engineers and architects, to whom it will be sent on request.

Dixon's Silica-Graphite Paint, which protects these structures from corrosion, has been extensively used in the south, west, and sea.coast sections of the United States, also in Mexico. Australia, China. Japan, West Indies, and Philippine Islands, and has proven its protective and wearing qualities in all climates.

him in educational causes Indeed, directly or indirectly, this entire coast has been responsive to his call to higher endeavor and higher life, and is saddened at the news of his decease.

We want those who have stood nearer to him to know that we mourn his loss with them and regret with them that his newest plans might not have been more completely realized within his own life. Perhaps the best tribute that we can pay this most strenuous educator of America is the pledge that we shall not forget nor cease to emulate the great lesson of his life. that of high professional purpose and endeavor.

Will you kindly bring this letter to the attention of others, whom we seek to speak to thru you, either at representative associations or in some appropriate journal? We are fraternally yours,
