TESTIMONIALS.

BOSTON, Jan. 31, 1867. We have used Peirce's Patent Slates for some time in our schools, and, from our experience, and their present improved character, we believe they are superior to any other slates we have ever seen and shall favor their more extended use.

C. GOODWIN CLARK, “ Lincoln The following is from “The Father of the Public School System of Pennsylvania," and, for many years, State Superintendent:

LANCASTER, Jan. 4, 1867. “From its origin to its present improved and satisfactory condition, I have watched the prog. ress of the artificial Slate (or Stone) Surface of Mr. I. Newton Peirce. I have seen it introduced in many schools and institutions, and have never known its use to be abandoned, or to fail of giving satisfaction. In facility of application, rapidity of drying for use, cheapness and dura. bility as a wall surface, in lieu of the old black-board, it is all that can be desired. Its merite, in the shape of Portable Slates, Tablets, etc., need not be asserted. In this form it will speak for itself, on inspection."

THOMAS H. BURROWES.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 7, 1867 I have used "Peirce's Book Slater and Tablets" in my school for one year and a half. I find them so satisfactory, that I do not wish to ever again use a stone slate in the school-room

The only TEXT-Book which presents Physiology as a study for Schools, in the light of the service it may be to a pupil in determining and impressing THE LAWS OF HEALTH.

JARVIS' PHYSIOLOGY.
Reoominendations not heretofore Published.

BOSTON, Feb. 28, 1866. I have examined your text-books on Physiology with great satisfaction. The “Primary libysiology” appears to me to be just the thing for all Common Schools, while the Physiology and Health" is admirably adapted for High Schools and Acndemies. In the preparation of these text-books you have rendered a very important service to a much neglected branch of education.

JOHN D. PHILBRICK, Supt. of Public Schools.

OVID, N. Y., Nov. 19, 1866. “Jarvis' Physiology” is received, and fully met our expectations. We immediately adopted

H. R. SANFORD, Prin. East Genesee Conference Seminary.

WESTCHESTER, PA., Sept. 3, 1866: A thorough examination has satisfied me of its superior claims, as a text-book, to the attention of teacher and taught. I shall introduce it at once. WM. F. WYERS, Prin. Academy.

BOSTON, Feb. 13, 1866. The very excellent " Physiology” of Dr. Jarvis, I had introduced into our High School -wliere the study had been temporarily dropped, - believing it to be by far the best work of the kind that had come under my observation; indeed, the re-introduction of the study was delayed for some months, because Dr. Jarvis' book could not be had, and we were unwilling to take any other.

HENRY G. DENNY, Chairman Book-Com. Dorchester, Mass.

JEFFERSONVILLE, OHIO, Aug. 13, 1866. I have carcfully examined “Jarvis' Physiology and Laws of Health'," and am highly pleased with it. It should have a place in every school-room, and in e.ery family.

J. L. SCOTT, Trin. Union School.

FALL RIVER, Mass., July 9, 1866. I have examined Jarvis "Physiology and Laws of Health," which you had the kindness to send me a short time ago. In may judgment, it is far the best work of the kind within my knowledge. It has been adopted as a text-book in our Public Schools.

D. W. STEVENS, Supt. Public Schools.

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, ANN ARBOR, MICH., Feb. 14, 1866. I have examined Dr. Jarvis' “ Physiology” with care, more particularly because some works of the kind, designed for schoole, are superficial, and somo present extravagant and erroneous views, and am happy to find this work, not only free from errors, as I believe, but full of correct. information aud sound instruction. It is precisely adapted to our High Schools and Seminaries. I think that all our youth, of both sexes, should study the subject; and have no hesitation in saying, that this is the most thorough and satisfactory work of the kind that I have examined.

E. O. IIAVEN. It is a standard work, by an educated man; and written in a style at once clear, practical and instructive to all classes. The publishers have done a public good in issuing this attractivo volume; and we hope a demand for it will spring up for copies by the hundreds of thousands, for it well merits it on account of its sterling value and the needs of the times.- Hall's Journal of Health, April 1866.

The work before us teaches, an plninly as mute lips can, all that one needs to know of this too oft neglected subject; and teaches it, too, in the most admirable manner. It attracts our atten. tion, and claims our commendation, not so much by the presentation of new physiological truths, as by the clear systematic way in which it takes bold of those well established, describing the organs, and explaining the various phenomena of animal life. ...Altogether the book is such a one as we take pleasure in recommending to lovers and teachers of this important study. The Juichigan Teacher, June 1866.

We take pleasure in calling your attention to several styles of our ERASABLE TABLETS,

designed especially for use in the School-room.

ERASABLE LEAF TABLET.

$1.00 per dozen.

This is a single leaf of our board about the size of a commercial note sheet. and is designed for the school-room. By using it in place of the slate, all the noise caused by the latter will be avoided. Scholars will find them invaluable for noting down such things as are desirable in the preparation of " home lessons;" and, being about the size of a common school-book, can readily be placed between the leaves, and carried home.

PAYSON'S ERASABLE SPELLING TABLET.

$1.20 per dozen.

This is designed expressly for pupils who write their spelling lessons. It is ruled in double columns, one for spelling, the other for correcting the misspelled words. Those who use blank books for writing their spelling exertises, will find the SPELLING TABLET much more ECONOMICAL.

PAYSON'S ERASABLE ARITHMETICAL TABLET.

Price $8 por dozen.

This we regard as one of the most valuable AIDS, to the teacher, that has ever been presented to the public. With it the teacher can accomplish, in ten minutes, more than he can in an hour by the ordinary method, by the use of the slate. He can assign a separate example to each pupil in his class in less time than he can dictate a single example for slate practice, and can detect every crror by a glance at the Ker. This last (price 50 cents) is a book of 65 pages, containing the answers to nearly 3,000 examples in the four fundamental rules of arithmetic.

SCHOOL TABLETS. Two Sizes.

(EDGES NEATLY BOUND WITH MUSLIN.) 5X7 INCHES, . . . $2.00 per doz. | 6X9 INCHES, . . . $3.00 per doz.

These are for use in school, instead of the ordinary slate; and, such is their excellence, that, herever they are once used, nothing will induce the pupils to return to the old stone slate.

FOLIO TABLETS. Two Sizes. 6 X 7 INCHES, . . . $3.75 per doz. 1 7 X 9 INCHES, . . . $5.00 per doz.

These are designed for school use, and are especially adapted for young ladies. They are neatly bound in fine muslin, and are very firm and durable.

All the above Tablets are manufactured from the beet Bristol Board; and are in every respect EQUAL, and in some respects SUPERIOR, to ivory plates. We can refer to a number of schools where the Tablet has been in use for nearly a year, in all cases giving perfect satisfaction.

All of our Tablets are coated with a transparent water-proof composition (for which Letters Patent was granted Oct. 24, 1865, and Aug. 7, 1866). An ordinary lead pencil should be used, and the marks erased with a piece of damp woolen cloth. For the school-room, they are consid. ered by teachers, who are using them, as indispensable. We will mail samples for examination at the following prices (postage paid): Erasable Leaf Tablet,
