tcmatic, more accurate, and besides introduces a number of invaluable features
which have never before been combined in a German grammar.
Among other things, it may be claimed for Prof. Worman that JIP lias been
the first to introduce in an American text-book for learning German, a ^;. t-U'iu
of analogy and comparison with other languages. Our best teachers are also
enthusiastic about his methods of inculcating the art of speaking, of understanding
the spoken language, of correct pronunciation; the sensible and convenient origi-
nal classification of nouns (hi four declensions), and of irregular ve bs, aJso de-
serves much praise. We also note the use of heavy type to indicate ttymological
changes in the paradigms. nd, in the exercises, the parts which specially illustrate
Worman's Elementary German Reader
Worman's Collegiate German Reader
The finest and most judicious compilation of classical and standard German
Literature. These works embrace, progressively arranged, selections from th
masterpieces of Goethe, Schiller, Korner, Senme, Uhland, Freiligrath, Heine,
ScLlegel, Holty, Lenau, Wieland, Herder, Lessing, Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Win-
kelmann, Hnmboldt, Ranke, Raumer, Menzel, Gervinus, &c., and contains com-
plete Goethe's " JpLigenie," Schiller's " Jungfran;" also, for instruction in mod-
ern conversational German, Benedix's " Eigensinn."
There are besides, Biographical Sketches of each author contributing, Notes,
explanatory and philological (after the text), Grammatical References to all lead-
ing grammars, as well as the editor's own, and aa adequate Vocabulary.
Worman's German Echo
Consists of exercises In colloquial style entirely in the German, with an ade-
quate vocabulary, not only of words but of idioms. The object of the system de-
veloped in this work (and its companion volume in the French) is to break up the
laborious and tedious habit of translating the thoughts, which is the student's
most effectual bar to fluent conversation, and to lead him to think In the language
in which he speaks. As the exercises illustrate scenes in actual life, a considera-
ble knowledge of the manners and customs of the German people ia also acquired
from the usa of thia manual.

Front the New York Tribune.
" The discipline of the school should prepare the child for the discipline of life.
The country schoolmaster, accordingly, holds a position of vital interest to the des-
tiny of the republic, and should neglect no means for the wise and efficient discharge
of his significant functions. This is the key-note of the present excellent volume.
In view of the supreme importance of the teacher's calling, Mr. Phelps has presented
an elaborate system of instruction in the elements of learning, with a complete de-
tail of methods and processes, illustrated with an abundance of practical examples
and enforced by judicious counsels, which may serve as an aid to the teacher in the
performance ot his arduous duties, and in the attainment of the highest excellence
in his profession. The author's directions may not always be accepted without
challenge by experienced instructors, who, however, are encouraged to think tor
themselves ; but they are always suggestive, and cannot fail to be of signal value
to those who are just entering upon their profession and beginning to comprehend
its difficulties, as well as to discover its secrets."
