Second Volume of McMaster's United States.
A HISTORY OF THE
PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES,
From the Revolution to the Civil War.
BY JOHN BACH
The second volume of McMaster's "History of the People of the United States' extends from 1790 to 1804, including the greater part of the administration of Washington, all of that of Adams, and the first term of Jefferson. It will be found to be a singularly vivid and stirring picture of the period, throwing not a little new light on many political questions, and affording an insight into the manners and social condition of the people not elsewhere to be found; while some of its portraits of leading men are likely to provoke considerable discussion.

ticularly the latter! Lives of Americans, obscure and illustrious, the former always preferred; Books throwing light, or claiming to throw light, on the misty origin and weird, romantic life of the Red Men-their ethnology, their tongues, their stone, metal and earthen relics of past ages; Genealogy; Criminal Trials; The rude Rhymes illustrating the slow but sure growth of American Poetry; Narratives of Soldiers and Pioneers; and other odd, curious and out-of-the-way things peculiar to America.

HISTORY OF CHINA. By ROBERT K. DOUGLAS. 12mo, cloth, illustrated, $1.50. In this volume we have an authentic, scholarly and most interesting summary of Chinese history from the earliest period to the present time. In addition to the careful editing of Mr. Arthur Gilman, the book has had the advantage of the critical abilities of the young Chinese scholar, Mr. Yan Phou Lee, of Yale College. The volume is richly illustrated with appropriate engravings, and will rank among standard books.
ITS SOUTHERN COAST, ALASKA, AND THE SITKAN ARCHIPELAGO. By E. RUHAMA SCIDMORE, Fully illustrated, 12mo, cloth, $1.50. No book yet published bears any comparison with this volume in respect of valuable and authentic information relating to the history, geography, topography, climate, natural scenery, inhabitants, and rich resources of this wonderful terra incognita.
LOTHROP'S HISTORICAL LIBRARY includes, beside China and Alaska; The American People, by ARTHUR GILMAN; India, by FANNIE ROPER FEUDGE; Egypt, by CLARA ERSKINE CLEMENT; Spain, by PROF. J. H. HARRISON; Switzerland, by H. D. MCKENZIE; each fully illustrated, scholarly, authentic, and altogether the best brief histories of these countries.
THE EVOLUTION OF DODD. By WILLIAM HAWLEY SMITH. Extra cloth, 12m0, $1.00. This remarkable book is destined to create as great a stir, in its way, as "Ginx's Baby," although written in an entirely different style. It treats of phases of young life as seen through the spectacles of a keen-eyed man, sharp enough to let none of the intricacies of the newer systems of education evade him. It should be read by every , parent, teacher, and public school officer in the country.
A ROMANCE OF THE REVOLUTION. (A Double Masquerade.) By REV. CHARLES R. TALBOT. Extra cloth, 12m0, $1.25. With illustrations by Share, Merrill and Taylor, made from careful studies.

MANY COLORED THREADS. Selections from the writings of Goethe, edited by CARRIE ADELAIDE COOKE. Extra cloth, $1.00. Eloquence, pathos, romance, philosophy-a wide range of sentiment and feeling, characteristic of the life of Goethe-are revealed in these selections.

Hughes; Living Truths, Charles Kingsley; Right to the Point, Dr. Čuyler. WIDE AWAKE, VOLUME T. Plain cloth binding, $1.75; extra binding, covers stamped in colors and gold, $2.25.

THE FAMILY FLIGHTS. By REV. E. E. HALE and MISS SUSAN HALE. Fresh, piquant, graphic, full of delicate humor, marked by grace in diction and thorough scholarship, these books are not only unsurpassed, but unequalled by any books of similar character. The authors have drawn their material from original sources, the countries referred to having been actually visited, and the descriptions embody the results of personal observation. The illustrations are not only numerous and excellent, but in perfect harmony with the text. While specially attractive to the young, adult readers who have themselves visited the lands described, are among the most appreciative and enthusiastic readers of these books.

No. 603 Fifth Avenue, New York, N. Y.
Thorough and extended courses of study in Mathematics, Science, Literature, and History.
Twenty-seventh year began September 24, 1884.
MRS. ROBERT H. GRISWOLD AND DAUGHTERS,
In their School at Lyme, Connecticut,
Are assisted by Miss G. B. FORD, who was educated at Mt. Holyoke Seminary. They teach Latin, French, German, the higher mathematics, with the ordinary school studies. They offer also special advantages for the piano, harp, guitar, mechanical and free-hand drawing, painting, art embroidery, etc. This School is recommended to young girls taking the ordinary course, to those who wish to pursue particuTerms moderate. lar studies, and to graduated young ladies desirous of higher attainments in special branches.
The very large, commodious, elegant old house is cool in summer, thoroughly warmed in winter, and very pleasantly and healthfully situated. With its refined influences, it is a charming home for young ladies of any age, especially for those who have no permanent home of their own.
Mrs. Sylvanus Reed's Boarding and Day School for Young Ladies,
Nos. 6 and 8 East 53d Street (Central Park), between Madison and 5th Avenues.
The success and reputation of this school for twenty years is due, with God's blessing, to its own merits and to that "Eternal vigilance which is the price of safety." It is supported by that class of citizens who demand and appreciate the best educational advantages and fidelity to the true interest of their children.
Each year brings it nearer to the idea of its founder, and it has lately been relieved from the peril of depending for existence upon the tenure of a single life. The standard of the Collegiate Department for the coming year has been materially raised. The staff of instructors has been greatly reinforced by professional talent, men of distinction in the respective branches assigned to them. DR. LABBERTON will give class instruction in this school in the Departments of History and Historical Literature,
DR. WILLIAM H. CARPENTER, of Columbia College, will have charge of English Grammar, Rhetoric, Critical Literature, Composition and Philology.
Lectures in Popular Astronomy by PROFESSOR REES, of Columbia Observatory. Physics and Chemistry, PROFESSOR BOWEN, of School of Mines. Art, PROFESSOR GOODYEAR. Latin, French, German, Mathematics, Psychology and Logic will be in charge of the same able teachers as heretofore. Resident teachers speak the French and German languages with purity.
Pupils prepared for examinations of any class in Columbia or other colleges.
Special students are admitted to any or all of the courses without examination.
The Primary and Preparatory Departments will be continued under the same teachers. The twenty-first school year begins October 1, 1884.
