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. “Endowed School, Will you kindly

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."
