In the April issue War Geography and Maps was treated; in the May number, Preliminaries of the Present World Conflict. Other topics will follow.


The monthly War Supplements are being reprinted as fast as they appear, in an inexpensive pamphlet form for use in classes, reading circles, clubs, and public meetings. The Reprints are sold at from 10 to 25 cents each, with a generous reduction in these prices when a quantity is ordered.

The study of Historical Geography by means of the filling in of Outline Maps by the pupil, is now recognized as a necessary part of high school work in History. Many colleges are requiring similar work in their freshman and introductory courses in History, and often it is used with profit in more advanced courses, where maps showing new historical material are to be constructed. Even in the grades it is found that much time can be gained by the use of printed map outlines, in place of the laborious map-drawing by pupils. Many colleges use outline maps in entrance examinations in history; and for ten years the College Entrance Examination Board has included among its questions in history, the placing of historical data upon McKinley Outline Maps. No series of Outline Maps is so well constructed, so conveniently prepared, so varied in its assortment,

or so well adapted to different needs, as the McKINLEY SERIES OF OUTLINE MAPS

The Series includes large wall outline maps; desk outline maps in three sizes; envelopes of loose maps, assorted as desired; bound maps, in atlas form, for nine periods of history; bound maps, with notepaper in. terleaved, for six periods of history; and skeleton maps, with coastlines only, for elementary history and geography classes.
