WHEN the Right Hon. ROBERT Lowe (now Lord SHERBROOKE), a few years ago, addressed the working men of Halifax on the best methods of self-education, he did not hesitate to place THE POPULAR EDUCATOR as the first book in the first rank. He said :

"If you give a child instruction, you have given him the potentiality of "possessing any amount of knowledge he pleases. Another thing I will "mention for the benefit of those young men who are wishful to possess "that amount of knowledge-one or two excellent books, which, if they "would read, would place them in a position, and give them an intelligent "power of judging of the world and the things around them superior to that "of many honourable and other gentlemen with whom I am acquainted. "NOW, THE FIRST BOOK WHICH I WILL RECOMMEND "IS CASSELL'S 'EDUCATOR.' A man who has read, and "thoroughly knows the contents of this, is a man who will under"stand the greatest part of what is going on around him, which is "a great deal more than can be said of the best Greek or Latin 'scholar, or even the accomplished lawyer."

called for, yet so continuous and urgent is the demand that the Publishers have determined to re-issue in Monthly Parts the Revised Edition, which has recently been thoroughly brought down to the latest date in its various departments.

So rapid, too, and enormous has been the result of State primary education, that every year thousands of new readers and students take their place in the work of the world furnished with a key to the temple of knowledge. They know and feel keenly, with the new power in their hands, that the time has come when they must rely on their own efforts to raise themselves in the world, and hence the present demand for a New Issue of THE POPULAR EDUCATOR, a work which beyond all others will enable them to carry on without limit the process of self-education.

Testimony upon testimony has reached the Publishers from amongst the hundreds of thousands who have possessed themselves of the work, declaring that they could not refrain from expressing how much of their success in life they owe to the POPULAR EDUCATOR. These testimonies have never ceased to flow in, scarcely a day passing without some new correspondent expressing his gratitude for the work.

The Daily Telegraph in a recent issue said: "This, the latest triumph of cheap excellence in literature, may fairly lay claim to the character of completeness in its practical elucidation of the whole range of elementary, advanced, and technical education."

The Standard says: "There is probably no cyclopædia of education in existence which is so complete in its way as CASSELL'S POPULAR EDUCATOR."

"We have gone over the pages of this great work," said the Dublin University Magazine, "with sentiments of real wonder. WE KNOW OF NONE LIKE IT."
