ON THE HEIGHTS. A Novel. By Berthold Auerbach. 16mo. With Pictorial Title. Price, $2.00.

"'On the Heights,' in its calm beauty, is like a hillside meadow on a bright May morning, when every blade of grass holds a sparkling world, and the air is stirred by no sound save the matin songs of the birds, and no darkness falls upon the ground save the occasional shadow of a cloud, which creeps slowly away, giving place to the full flood of sunlight.

"The 'Heights' are heights of social position, of intellectual striving, and of moral purity; and the problems treated are the deepest problems of life." — Rochester Democrat.


It is the experience of a young man in search of the true church, with sketches of the Baptists, Congregationalists, Methodists, Episcopalians, Quakers, Swedenborgians, Spiritualists, Universalists, Unitarians, and how he found the City with the name The Lord is there. 1 volume, 16mo. Price, $1.50.

"The remarkable thing about this book is the knowledge as well as the candor displayed in describing the different sects, their peculiar beliefs, the varieties of belief existing in the same sect, and the history of the various denominations; and while there are now and then sharp thrusts at some of the denominational points, a genuinely charitable and Christian spirit pervades the whole." — Springfield Republican.

THE PRODIGAL SON. Four Discourses, by Rev. W. Morley Punshon, with a Preface by Rev. Gilbert Haven, editor of "Zion's Herald." 16mo. Paper covers, price, 25 cents; cloth, 50 cents.

A BOOK ABOUT BOYS. By Ascott R. Hope, Author of "A Book about Dominies." 16mo. Price, $1.25.

"Often playful, but always in earnest, the writer says a great deal which will be entirely new to minds that should be familiar with all that concerns the lives of boys. His book, indeed, is one that demands the best attention of parents, especially, and ought to receive it." — The Leader.

A BOOK ABOUT DOMINIES. By Ascott R. Hope. One volume, 16mo. Price, $1.25.

"Not since Henry Taylor wrote his essay on children have we seen anything on the important subject of this work so sensibly conceived or uttered so gracefully. It ought to find its way at once to the hands of every pupil teacher in the country; but the oldest member of the profession will be a man of no ordinary accomplishment and experience if he does not here find something to encourage, to incite, to instruct, and to console him." — London Daily Review.

STORIES OF SCHOOL LIFE. By Ascott R. Hope. In Press.
