Makes a Surface which Rivals the Best Wall Slates.
It is perfectly Black; never Crumbles ; always remains Hard and Smooth.

It is successfully applied to any kind board or wall, and is invaluable in renovating old wooden blackboards. It has been used twelve years in some of the best schools of New-England. The surface is as smooth and perfect now as when applied. This proves its durability. It is put up in tin cans, and sent safely by Express.

By following directions, any teacher may easily apply the Eureka Slating, and make a perfect slate surface, wonderful in color, smoothness, and durability.

PRICE, $1.75 PER PINT; $3 PER QUART. 5 per cent discount on five gallons, and 10 per cent on ten gallons or more.

One pint will cover about 30 square feet; hence it makes a cheap blackboard. In Chicago, New-York, Philadelphia, Boston, and vicinities, we will apply it at ten cents per square foot.

Do not confound EUREKA LIQUID SLATING with slating known by other names, or manufactured by other persons, for it has its imitations. But no other slating can produce the perfectly smooth dead-black surface of the EUREKA.

Prominent teachers and school officers in every part of the country have so thoroughly tested the EUREKA SLATING, that we do not hesitate to warrant it.

TESTIMONY FOR THE EUREKA SLATING.

OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS, BOFFALO, July 5, 1866. Three years ago " Eureka Slating" was applied to blackboards in our public schools. They are now in fine condition, and do not seem worn in the least by constant use. I recommend this Slating to teachers and school officers.

JOHN S. FOSDICK, Superintendent.

GALESBURG, ILL., April 12, 1866. I have used " Liquid Slating" to restore old and to make new blackboards, as I visit the schools of my county. In every case it gives perfect satisfaction. I shall continue its use, believing it to be the best preparation made for blackboard purposes.

J. H. KNAPP, Co. Supt. of Schools, Knožc Co., III. I take pleasure in recommending the “Eureka Slating" whenever an opportunity offers.

NEWTON BATEMAN, State Supt. Public Instruction, Illinois. The Eureka Liquid Slating will always give satisfaction when properly applied. JOHN D. PHILBRICK, Supt. Public Schools, Boston, Mass.

New-HAVEN, CT., April 23, 1866. I have used it nine years, and it seems to improve. From my own experience I think it will last FIFTY YEARS.

E. ROBBINS. MINNESOTA STATE NORMAL SCHOOL, WINONA, March 13, 1866. Our blackboards are finished with “Eureka Slating." When properly applied it leaves nothing to be desired. It is equal to the best Vermont and Lehigh slåtes, besides being cheaper. I recommend it to the teachers of the

North-West.

WM. F. PHELPS, Principal. N. Y. STATE NORMAL SCHOOL, ALBANY, N. Y., June 22, 1866. I recommend “Eureka Slating,” having found it durable and cheap.

OLIVER AREY, Principal. ALBION COMMERCIAL COLLEGE, MICHIGAN, May 8, 1864. We find “ Eureka Slating' surface equal to the best stone slates.

THE

SCHOLAR'S DIARY ,

FOR THE

USE OF ALL WHO GO TO SCHOOL.

BY EMERY F. STRONG.

This little book is designed to exercise the young in the important practice of making a daily record of items and events. It will help to cultivate and strengthen habits of observation and accuracy; and these habits, formed in youth, will have a favorable influence in subsequent life. Such a record, faithfully kept, will prove a history of the writer's life, and its value will increase with passing years. If persons now in active life were in possession of a manuscript diary of their school-days, they would esteem it a treasure indeed.

The Scholar's Diary contains:
I. Specimen pages of a diary, which will suggest the manner of

making the daily entries.
II. Rules and maxims for pupils.
III. Subjects for Compositions, with simple suggestions.
IV. Rules for the use of Capital letters.

V. Rules for Punctuation.
VI. Blank pages for making the daily entries of an ordinary school

term.

In some cases it will be found sufficient for preserving copies of the compositions written during the term.

Price of the Scholar's Diary, per dozen, $2.50. Specimen copies sent by mail, prepaid, for 20 cents. J. W. SCHERMERHORN & Co., Publishers.

REWARDS REDUCED TO A USEFUL AND PERFECT SYSTEM.

The good effect of an accurate register of deportment and scholarship in promoting a wholesome spirit of emulation and scholarly pride is acknowledged by all. Yet such a register is rarely kept. Teachers generally have not time to record each recitation as it occurs. Other duties crowd upon them so that the record must be neglected for the time, and afterward made up from memory. Perfect accuracy being impossible in such cases, confidence in the record is weakened, and its moral force, in a great degree, lost.

The Aids secure the good results of accurate records and reports, with less expense of time and labor, and also an active parental in. terest naturally awakened by a system of daily reports.

The Aids may be used in various ways. The following is convenient: In the morning give each pupil a Card, (five merits representing a perfect day,) to be forfeited for misdemeanor, or failure in recitation. SINGLE MERITS and Half Merits are for pupils who fail to retain their CARDS and yet.are worthy of some credit. Five cards held by any pupil are exchanged for a CHECK, (twenty-five Merits,) representing a perfect School Week. Four Checks are exchanged for a CERTIFICATE OF MERIT, representing one hundred Merits, or a perfect Month. These Certificates bear the pupil's name and are signed by the teacher. The number held shows the pupil's standing in School.

If a PRIZE is to be awarded at the close of the Session, there can be no mistake in determining to whom it belongs; and the decision being made by each pupil exhibiting the Cards and Certificates received, no suspicion of favoritism can arise.

The Aids are neat in design, and are beautifully printed in colors. The Certificates are prizes which children will admire and cherish. The Single Merits and Half Merits are printed on card-board; the Cards and Checks on heavy paper, and may be used many times. This makes the system very cheap. The Aids are put up in sets of five hundred, there being eighty Certificates, one hundred and twenty Checks, two hundred cards, and one hundred Single Merits and Half Merits. Price, per set, $1.25. By mail, prepaid, $1.35. J. W. SCHERMERHORN & CO., Publishers,
