-NATURAL ELEMENTARY GEOGRAPHY, by Jacquis W. Redway, (144 pp.; 60c.), represents in many ways the great advance which is taking place in geography teaching. As we have said elsewhere that is characterized by efforts at unification. Instead of the miscellaneous collections of information which have characterized our texts we are now seeking to bring the facts dealt with into natural and necessary relations. This is illustrated for example in the book be. fore.us by the complete abandonment of the old and arbitrary groupings of the states of our union, and the treatment of them by natural characteristics, as the northern
section, the southern section, the plateau section and the The Fastest Largest and Finest Steamer in the World.
