illustration from the best writers, the book will be a joy to all lovers of good literature and a stimulus

THE BOOK OF REVELATION NOT A MYSTERY
By DAVID KEPPEL

A brief, graphic, and deeply interesting interpreta-
tion of the Book of Revelation. The author brings
to his task both adequate scholarship and thorough
sanity. A most wholesome and timely book for all
who would understand the relation of the Apocalypse
to the present world crisis.
16mo. 76 pages.
Cloth. Net, 50 cents, postpaid.

THE CONFESSIONS OF A BROWNING LOVER
By JOHN WALKER POWELL

A fine interpretation of the message of Browning to
our time. Believing that Browning is primarily an
artist, the author holds that both by intuition and
inspiration he is a philosopher aud a theologian and
that his teachings are of the highest order. Agnos-
ticism and materialism are met and answered. Dr.
Powell's chapter on Immortality is unusually helpful.
Crown 8vo. 248 pages. Cloth.
Net, $1.00, postpaid.

12mo. 234 pages. Cloth. Net, $1.00, postpaid.

SIDE-STEPPING SAINTS

By GEORGE CLARKE PECK

The breeziness that characterized "Men Who Missed
the Trail" is also to be found in this later volume
by the same author. It is tonic, wholesome and
steadily reverent-even if sometimes it upsets your
preconceived notions. It is a real breeze for mind
and heart.
12mo. 329 pages. Cloth.
Net, $1.25, postpaid.

THE MAYFLOWER PILGRIMS
By EDMUND JAMES CARPENTER

DR. CARPENTER has given a popular and highly in-
teresting account of early New England days. True
to history, the rugged and heroic life of the Pilgrims
takes new beauty and power under the author's skil-
ful handling. In view of the Tercentenary of the
landing of the Pilgrims, this volume is most timely
and will surely help to an understanding of the spirit
and purpose of the sturdy pioneers to whom the
nation owes so much.

256 pages. Cloth. Net, $1.50, postpaid.

RELIGION AND THE SCHOOL, By EMIL CARL WILM This book demonstrates two important things. First, the necessity for religious education in our public schools, and second, how such instruction may be given without becoming sectarian in its character. The subject is excellently well treated, and the discussion is especially valuable because of the standing of its author in matters philosophical, Professor Wilm being the successor of Professor Borden P. Bowne, at Boston University, and lecturer on Philosophy at Wellesley College. 16mo. 54 pages. Cloth. Net, 35 cents, postpaid.

Odell's PETER SAT BY THE FIRE WARMING HIMSELF

In this paper Reverend Joseph H. Odell, who has, as he says, 'probably written more in defense of the ministry than any other clergyman,' attempts to bring home truths to clergy and laity. Many will defend hiwritings at this time; many condemn. My soul has waxed hot within me as I have watched the part played by the Christian ministers during the present crisis.' Each, 10 cents; $5.00 per hundred.

Joubert's NEIGHBOR HANS

As proof of the almost unbelievable perversity of character which marks the German officials and officers, Wilfred A. Joubert offers the story of his experiences with a Junker-born neighbor in southern Mexico. The man was a university graduate of the military caste. His code of ethics, and his absolute disregard of the right of his neighbors, so nearly coincide with the spirit which caused the European calamities of the last three years, that the experience reads almost as a parable. Each 10 cents; $5.00 per hundred.
