A High Compliment. Our friends abroad are discovering the excellency of the STATE NORMAL MONTHLY, as well as the friends at home. Recently we publish od a paper on Hegel's Philosophy of History, by Miss Mary S. Taylor, of our faculty. Doctor Chrisman wrote to Commissioner Harris calling his attention to it, and was gratified to receive the following reply:

Your very kind letter of March 22nd came to hand duly. I had already read the article on Hegel's “Philosophy of History'' by Miss Taylor, and had admired it very much. I think it is a very remarkable production and I am glad to know that the young lady undertook the work at your instigation. If she will work over Hegel's "Philosophy of History” once in two years, or once a year, (as I have done eighteen or twenty times,) I am sure she will agree with me in saying that the book has more ideas in it than any other book she has ever seen.

Very truly yours,

W. T. Harris. Commissioner.

Phllomathian Society. Success, hope, patriotism, and good cheer in society are doing much to make blue and white the popular spring colors. Many new students are finding a permanent home in the hall where these colors reign supreme, and old students are rallying around as if they had heard the bugle call. Miss Daisy Ott, better known as Parthenia, Messrs. Lockhart, Burnap, Griswold and Stewart are among those welcomed back.

The officers who will see that the high standing of society work is kept up during the next four weeks are Margret Turney, Z. E. Wyant, C. T. Rhinehart, C. W. Jones, Metta Johannes and Roy Rankin.

Mr. W. L. Dunbar and Miss Blanche Neiman have been chosen to take first and second place in the next oratorical contest. Mr. Thoroman has again received merited honor in being selected as the best parliamentarian of the school for the position of president of the interstate association.

He was formally elected at the executive meeting at Normal, Illinois. The Philomathians all will join in yelling, “Hurrah for St. Clair," and

"Rah! rah! rah! rip! rah! ren!
Unfold old gold, K. S. N."

The following reports from the alumni show where “Old Gold” will wave: W. S. Picken, '87, superintendent city schools, Burlingame; A. C. Wheeler, '97, superintendent schools, Garden City; Miss Nettie Barber, '98, teacher city schools, Halstead, Kansas.

The purpose of this book is to set forth some general considerations, which lead many to regard “Venus and Adonis,” the sonnets and "A Lover's Complaint" as constituting, in that order, a work in which Shakespeare unfolds his scheme of poetic development, or of the natural evolution of the poet. The sonnets show the constantly shifting relation of Shakespeare to the youth. They show the youth as his ideal of

Victor Serenus. A story of the Pauline Era;
By Henry Wood 12mo. Cloth: 500 pages.
Lee & Shepard, publishers, Boston

1 50
The scene is located in that very dramatic
period of the world's history,the Pauline era,
and through graphic character delineation
deals with the thought, customs, and relig.
ous systems of that time. Its aim is to draw
a true and well-proportioned picture of the
actual conditions, avoiding an overdrawn
and debasing realism, so often employed for
the sake of exaggerated contrasts. With un-
important exceptions, Paul is the only his.
toric character, and those who have been
privileged to read the advance sheets are of
the opinion that the various dramatic and
psychological situations which are depicted
during his unique development are remarka-
ble. Victor Serenus, and the other leading
personalities that are emploved, are repre-
sentative creations. While the historic
framework is carefully preserved, there is a
range of the fancy and imagination in the
movement, and a wealth of mystical, psy.
chical, and wierd phenomena deftly woven
into the fabric for the story. Love, advent-
ure, romance, idealism, and magic are han.
dled in action to combine entertainment, in.

TOPEKA, KAN., Jan. 1, 1898. To Teachers of Bookkeeping :

The bookkeeping blank books which we are furnishing for use with Stevenson's Introductory Bookkeeping were prepared especially for use with that book by the author, who placed upon the covers many helps by way of suggestions, directions, time-table, principles, etc., etc., which add much to their usefulness to teacher and student, and will lead to uniformity in the work of the school.

We are sure that our blank books, because of superior ruling, extra quality of paper, and a different colored cover for each, will please your pupils far better than common stock blank books, which will eventually bring trouble because of their unfitness for use with Stevenson's Bookkeeping: Ask for the "STEVENSON'S BLANK Books." Your bookseller can furnish them without one bit of extra trouble.

Have you provided yourself with a copy of the Teacher's Reference Book, or Key to Stevenson's Introductory Bookkeeping? If not, you should send for one at once. It has every set worked out in detail for the special benefit of busy teachers. Price, 75 cents, sent postage prepaid upon receipt of price. (This Key can only be had by sending direct to the undersigned publisher.)

Yours truly,

J. S. Parks,
