INCORPORATED 1892 THE THE New York School of Applied Design for Women was organized for the purpose of

affording to women practical instruction which will enable them to earn a livelihood by the application of ornamental design to manufacture and the numerous arts and crafts.

No fixed period for the course of instruction is established. Each pupil is allowed to proceed as rapidly as she masters the successive steps in the course of instruction, and she is allowed to pass from the Elementary Department to that of the Applied Design whenever hei attainments justify the promotion.

The ability and industry of each pupil thus largely determines her rate of progress and the length of time during which she will be obliged to remain in the School, but the Ele mentary Department is intended to cover a year and a half for those students who have had no previous instruction in drawing.

No examination is required for entrance into the Elementary Course. Studer liberty to choose which of the Advanced Departments to enter after passing the examinations.

G. P. Putman's Sons

The Spell of Holland

By Barton E. Stevenson A charming and delightful book of travel, a book as charming as the country it describes and as delightíul as a trip through Holland always is. Mr. Stevenson's narrative is alive with humor. Every page has a twinkle in it, and some have two or three. Yet it is filled with information, served up in so smiling a way that one scarcely realizes one is learning as well as enjoying. There are numerous photographs taken by the author, and a helpful folding map. A true book of Holland study! Price, $2.50 net; carriage extra

The Wit and Humor of Colonial Days

By Carl Holliday

The author of this book finds the beginnings of American humor in the very
beginnings of American life and settlement. And he advances many an amus-
ing argument in support of his proposition. He performs a real service in
demonstrating that our Revolutionary forefathers enjoyed a laugh and often
indulged in it-an idea that will be new to many people. Drawing upon many
forgotten sources for his material Mr. Holliday has recreated a new chapter in
early American history, the study of which as he presents it, will be found as
entertaining as it is new.
