THE END

EXTINCT ANIMALS

By E. RAY LANKESTER, F.R.S.
With numerous illustrations. $1.75 net, postage extra

An account of animals, many of which lived on the earth in ages before written history. The author bases the book on his popular lectures, and although the story is told so simply that children cannot fail to understand it, it is in no way lacking in scientific value, and will be full of interest for older people as well. The story of these animals is in some measure the story of the earth itself.

THE COUNTRY DAY BY DAY

By E. KAY ROBINSON

Illustrated. $1.75 net, postage extra A diary of nature for a twelvemonth, descriptive of English country scenes, but of interest to the American nature-lover by reason of its marked literary quality and the wealth of detailed observation which it contains. It is a note-book of birds, flowers, animals, and all the varied life of the woods and fields, unfolding, in a way which will delight those who know the country, the progress of nature day by day throughout the year. There are numerous pictures from photographs taken in the field by the author.

THE OPEN ROAD

Compiled by EDWARD V. LUCAS Some 125 poems and twenty-five prose passages, representing over

sixty authors. $1.50 "The selections tell of farewells to winter and the town, of spring and the beauty of the earth, of lovers, of sun and cloud and the windy hills, of birds, blossoms, and trees-in fact of everything that makes work wellnigh impossible when the world of nature begins to awake from its long sleep."-Critic.

"A very charming book from cover to cover."-Dial.

WAR AND ITS RESULTS

By Dr. WOLF VON SCHIERBRAND,

Author of "Germany of To-day."

13 maps, 334 pp. $1.50, net. (By mail, $1.62.)

This book treats the present conflict and its probable results as only preliminary to larger considerations. It considers America's relations to all the countries affected by the Panama Canal, to those on both coasts of the Pacific, and to the islands, besides analyzing the strength and weakness of our rivals.

Public Opinion:-“A most interesting treatise ... having an important bearing upon our future progress.

Review of Reviews:-" His observations on the Panama Canai and the future of the Dutch East Indies are particularly interesting and suggestive."

Outlook:—"An interesting . . , survey of a broad field. ... The work contains a great variety of useful information concerning the many countries under review ... especially valuable to American exporters."

Philadelphia Ledger:-"Will repay perusal by every thoughtful business man.. Presenting in a forceful and attractive manner the importance of the Pacific as the future field for the world's political and commercial activity.”

Russian Politics

By HERBERT M. THOMPSON. With maps, 12mo, $2.00.

An account of the relations of Russian geography, history, and politics, and of the bearings of the last on questions of world-wide interest.

Outlook :-" The result of careful study, compactly, clearly, and effectively presented. .. The author's aim is to stir the friends of freedom throughout the world to a deeper interest in the cause of Russian liberty. His work is vivified by the fact that his heart is in it. The chapters upon the methods by which the Russian serfs were emancipated, and the manner in which they have been almost reenslaved by debt and taxation, are particularly worthy of the examination of students of social politics
