An interesting account of "The Scandinavian Countries and the War" is given by Johan Castberg in the "Contemporary Review" for February. Denmark, the writer states, is still bitter over the tyrannical conduct of the Germans towards a quarter of a million Danes in Schleswig; and there is bound to be a coldness between the Scandinavian countries and Germany until this is changed. On the other hand, all Scandinavia-but Sweden in particular -mourns with Finland in her suffering, and fears Russia. Since the opening of the European war, however, the Scandinavians have felt the Russian danger to be less imminent; and their deep sympathy for Belgium has increased their anti-German feeling. They welcomed British interference in the war, and Germany's defense of her action has had no effect.
Louis Bertrand, in "Revue des Deux Mondes" for December 15, discusses "Nietzsche and the War." The works of Nietzsche, M. Bertrand believes, were tremendously influenced by the war of 1870, which made a profound im
pression upon the German philosopher's diseased sensibilities. And his writings and others like them produced the present war. Were Nietzsche living to-day, he could say in very truth," This is my war."
In the same number of the "Revue" is a discussion of The European Conflict, According to the Diplomatic Docu ments," by Professor Guglielmo Ferrero. Professor Ferrero's conclusions are that Germany is to blame for the war; that the war was caused by the pan-German propaganda, which created a situation which the German government could not resist. He suggests that further investigation of the question may prove that the responsible element in Germany was reduced to playing the role of executors of the will of the irresponsible."
John Bassett Moore, in an article entitled, "Is there a Latin America?" ("Independent," January 18) calls attention to the remarkable character of the "A, B, C" media. tion of last spring. The efforts of the representatives of the three leading South American republics, he writes, relieved the strained relations between the United States and Mexico, and set a precedent by recognizing those powers as equals of the United States, and admitted by implication that "differences which gravely menace the relations of individual American states are matters of concern to all the American nations." If these principles are adhered to, the relations of the American nations will eventually be placed upon a basis of "confidence, respect and friendly cooperation."

AT FIRST SKEPTICAL-NOW
I want to tell you how pleased I am with the Sanford History Maps. It is safe to say that there is no one set of maps anywhere that will be found as helpful to the teacher and to the student as this series.
I was rather skeptical as to the value of such a chart in history teaching in the high school, but I find myself using it constantly. It is a ready source of information, it expresses concretely many things that would take long to explain; it affords a basis for map work. The maps on the development of the West, the growth of population, immigration, railways, etc., are especially useful.
I think that no school history room is complete without this series.

An attractive new history course that gives the needed background for the interpretation of present events
Outlines of European History
In the present state of European affairs, schools desire, for class or reference use, some authentic work that will shed light on the origin and development of the great European powers as to-day constituted, and the relations that these powers bear to each other.
OUTLINES OF EUROPEAN HISTORY, written by authorities in their subjects, not only fills this need admirably, but is in full accord with the new spirit in the teaching of history. With these two volumes in hand, the teacher can cover general European history satisfactorily in two years, leaving the third year for American history. Emphasis throughout is placed on conditions and institutions rather than on unrelated events, while by devoting Part II to the history of the last two hundred years, the course directs the pupil's attention especially to the problems and developments that are of present-day import.
