Outlines of International Law.
By Lieut.-Col. George B. Davis.
Professor of International Law at the U. S. Military Academy.
The generally disturbed conditions prevailing on the Continent and the extension of our interests in the East make this subject one of which every intelligent citizen should have some knowledge. Col. Davis's book has been brought absolutely up to date and is undoubtedly the most practical work on the subject.

Conditions and Possibilities
By William Dinwiddie.
In view of the general interest which has been aroused by the discussions of the Puerto Rican tariff bill, Mr. Dinwiddie's book, which has to do largely with economic conditions on the island, should have a renewed popularity.

Wealth against Commonwealth
By Henry D. Lloyd.
In view of the prominence of the trust problem as an issue in the coming Presidential campaign this work has a new interest. Public Opinion says of it: "His indictment of trusts and combinations is one of the most masterly attacks ever made upon an evil and ruinous system of economics."

Our Presidents-and How We Make Them.
By Col. A. K. McClure.
Colonel McClure's political and journalistic experience extends over a period of half a century. He has known many of the presidential candidates, and has been in personal contact with every national convention during that time. In his reminiscences he gives especial attention to Lincoln and Blaine, and the entire narrative is embellished with the hitherto unpublished details of political incidents, such as the quarrel between Buchanan and Forney and that between Cleveland and Dana, showing their bearing on national politics. Another important feature is a detailed account of every ballot taken in the national conventions of the past fifty years.
With Portraits, $2.50.
