He is a Christian gentleman of refinement and has a winning personality.— Albion Journal. The principal speaker of the day was Prof. Elbert Waller, and he captivated the audience. His remarks were confined to the subject of community betterment, and he presented logical arguments in favor of better schools, better churches, better homes, a better city and a better community. Prof. Waller is an able orator, and he handled the subject in a manner which indicated that he was conversant with the facts that he presented.— The Grayville Mercury. PROF. ELBERT WALLER, AUTHOR OF ILLINOIS HISTORY, ADDRESSES THE ASSOCIATION. Prof. Elbert Waller addressed the teachers on Civic Righteousness. In this address the speaker took up the nations of old and came up to the present, making the application to present-day problems. His address was of a high order and was greatly appreciated. He addressed the assembly again in the afternoon on The Tragedy of the Incompetent. He spoke for an hour and his speech was accepted with enthusiasm. They all pronounced it good and many expressed a desire that he might return and address the teachers again.— Greenville Advocate. PROF. WALLER SHOWS POWER AS SPEAKER BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL AUDIENCE. Each day adds new interest to the institute and the habit of concentration and study is rapidly being re-established by the teachers who are ready for the winter's work after the long rest and vacation. Prof. Waller lectured both in the morning and in the afternoon, making the subjects increasingly interesting. Prof. Waller indelibly impresses his subject upon the memory of those who hear him. At the evening session last night Prof. Waller lectured on The Tragedy of the Incompetent. He has a wonderful precision of speech. His mind seems to reach out and grasp the needed word with unfaltering accuracy which makes his subjects alive.— Cairo Bulletin. WALLER'S HISTORY OF ILLINOIS. This book was written for use in the Seventh and Eighth Grades. It is brief and yet it is so thorough and the matter so well selected that it is used in Teachers' Training Classes all over the State. One teacher writes, The children are always happy when it is time to study it. A County Superintendent writes, It is the cream of Illinois History, triple strength. A college president writes, It gives the wheat without the chaff and fills the bill everywhere. A normal president writes, I want to congratulate you on your fine power of condensation and selection. It is easily adapted to any course of study and can be taught topically or otherwise as the matter is arranged chronologically and is carefully indexed. Teachers and students alike appreciate the suggestions to students, the Quizzes numbered to paragraphs, the maps and illustrations that illustrate and the rare material in the Appendix as well as the good printing and binding, all of which taken together make it an attractive book. It is used in all parts of the State—in rural schools, in large cities and in more than a score of counties. It is gaining ground every day. Price, 60 Cents. 20 per cent discount on five or more.
