TO THE PUBLIC.

        In former times, the country was overrun with an endless number of competition School Books in every line of instruction. The present condition of the country has delivered us from this evil. Will that last hereafter? That is the question. "To be, or not to be?" We, for our part, have advocated the rule of "Monas," with regard to School Books, ever since our establishment came into existence. We have seen the beneficial consequences of it in such countries where the same plan has been adopted and carried out even as a law.

        We do not presume to claim perfection for this little book, because we happen to be the publishers of it; but we request again the public most respectfully to assist us in carrying out the beneficial plan of uniformity in the use of School Books.

        Under the present circumstances, the scarcity of materials is in itself a safeguard against a fruitless competition in the publishing business; but it is not the publisher's mission to depend upon physical incidents. He should rest safe upon public opinion.

S. H. GOETZEL.
