LITERATURE— (Continued)

tended to correlate this branch of nature study with shopwork, and is planned to come at that period in the student's life when he is in constant contact with the various woods used in construction. Besides this, the leaf form is studied as the best means of identification, and the particular uses for the various kinds of wood are explained. The book is profusely illustrated with pictures and diagrams.

devoted entirely to the milling machines made by this company. The fact that the book is written by the manufacturers is a guarantee of its absolute accuracy; and to anyone engaged in running one of these machines, which will be found in nearly every well-equipped machine shop, the book is invaluable, explaining clearly and fully, with diagrams, their principles and operation.

The book is written especially for those not familiar with the machines, with the object of aiding in having the machines well understood, properly cared for, and profitably operated. Going beyond this, the book contains much of interest and instruction to those who are well versed in both the theory and the practice of milling. Roth the universal and the plain milling machines are taken up.

Among the many important operations described, may be mentioned the cutting of bevel gears, in the universal milling machine, also the cutting of spirals, as particularly interesting.

LITERATURE (Continued)

interesting book, well illustrated and full of valuable information. Among the many authors whose work has been laid under tribute, we find the names of Sir Edwin Arnold, Pierre Loti, Lafcadio Hearn, Arthur Diosy, and several others, whose years of residence and travel in Japan have made them very familiar with the country and the people. The book contains fifty articles, grouped -under the following headings: "The Country and Race." "History and Religion," "Places and Monuments," "Manners and Customs," "Arts and Crafts." In these divisions are found chapters on Japanese gardens, architecture, painting, pottery, porcelain, carving, lacquer, etc.

The article devoted to New Japan is of special value at the present time as it gives an insight into existing conditions and the spirit that animates the little island nation, whose fighting qualities have astonished the world.

Russia as Seen by Great Authors. Edited by Esther Singleton. Dodd, Head * Company, Hew York. Price, $1.50.

This is a companion book to "Japan as Seen by Great Authors," but in our opinion is not so valuable a work. The book is not well balanced, several subjects of no special moment receiving too much space, and thus necessitating the curtailing of subjects which deserve a more extended treatment. One-third of the volume is occupied by descriptive articles on particular places, cities, the Volga basin, the Caucasus, the Trans-Siberian Railway, etc., followed by a number of chapters on the manners and customs of the people. Thirty pages are devoted to the discussion of the architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and literature of Russia; and the concluding chapter contains some statistics, and general encyclopedic and geographical information. The book is well illustrated with photographs. Many of the chapters are from the pens of such well known writers as Prince Kropotkin, Harrv de Windt, Theophile Gauthier, and W. R. Morfill.

Ropp's New Calculator is from beginning to end an entirely new. reconstructed and vastly improved publication. It contains a new system of tables, new rules, short-cuts and up-to-date methods; also 48 cuts illustrating the principles of mechanics and mensuration. It has more than double the contents of the old edition, of which

It is the Calculator that positively calculates, instantly and correctly—not merely a limited number of easy examples, as ordinary Ready Reckoners, but almost every conceivable example or problem that is likely to occur in daily business transactions, whether the given quantities be large, small, even, odd or fractional numbers.

Ropp's New Quadruplex System is by far the greatest labor-saving improvement ever devised in the construction of mathematical tables, and is as simple and plain as it is new and unique. It consists of an ingenious arrangement of different sized figures, so spaced as to always show the whole answer at a glance, however large the given numbers, thus saving the labor, time and trouble of looking for. and of combining, three or more partial answers—scattered over as many pages or columns to find the total answer.

Ropp's New Calculator is the consummation of devising and improving system after system; of expending thousands of dollars in experimenting; of making millions of miscellaneous calculations, and of doing a vast amount of vigorous thinking, during more than 35 years, by an analytic, practical and persevering mind.

It prevents mistakes, relieves the mind, saves labor, time and money. Makes you independent, sure and self-reliant in figures.

A great paper says: "A new publication that must prove of incalculable benefit to the commercial world— unless the book itself can calculate its own worth—for it calculates almost everything that is calculable."
