From S. P. ROBINS, LL.D., M.A., formerly Secretary and Superintendent of Schools of Protestant Board of Commissioners, Montreal, now Principal of McGill Normal School.
Rev. Prin. Macvicar, LLD.
High School, Metcalfe St.,
Permit me. after a careful examination of your Arithmetical text-books, the Primary and the Complete Arithmetic, to say that I consider their introduction into the Schools of the Protestant Board of School Commissioners of this city will prove of the greatest assistance to teachers. The more important and peculiar advantages of these books appear to me to arise from the very careful analysis of the subject of arithmetical teaching as a whole, and of each rule in particular, which has preceded the methods of treatment adopted. Hence the books are admirably arranged with reference to the systematic and gradual progress of pupils, and even the most complete processes are presented with great clearness and simplicity. This will be at once evident to every practical teacher who may examine the mode of treatment of such subjects as fractions or square and cube roots.
From S. P. RoWELL, formerly Head Master, Ann Street School, now
Dr. Macvicar's Primary Arithmetic, now in use in this School, proves to be a very valuable book for class work. The clearness and conciseness of rules, the definitions and explanations in both the Primary and Complete Arithmetic, coupled with their suitability for young pupils, the careful graduation and diagram illustration of the principles of the different subjects, the objective method employed, and the practical business nature of the examples, are all points that cannot fail to recommend the work to every experienced teacher. Too great importance cannot be attached to the plates illustrating Solid Measure in the Primary Arithmetic. The author has shown a thorough practical knowledge of the wants of both teacher and pupil in presenting his subject in a method so attractive and instructive. I hope soon to see these Arithmetics in general use throughout all our Public Schools.
From S. H. PARSONS, A.B., formerly Head Master, Point St. Charles School, now Head Master of Victoria School, Montreal.
The want of a clear, concise and practical Arithmetic for Canadian Schools, at such a price as would bring it within the reach of all, has been long felt. Macvicar's Elementary Arithmetic. lately published by Dawson Brothers, Montreal, seems to fill that want as no other work published in Canada has done. All rubbish has been rejected, while the mechanical work and typography is all that can be desired.
From C. A. HUMPHREY, formerly Head Master, Royal Arthur School,
We have used Macvicar's Arithmetic in this School for the last six months, and find it far superior to any Primary Arithmetic that it has been our lot to meet with.
From REV. JAMES MITCHELL, Rector High School, Quebec.
I have carefully examined your "Primary Arithmetic," and I think it is the very best book for junior pupils that exists in Canada. The "Complete Arithmetic, oral and written," is in reality what it professes to be "complete." In it there are no roundabout demonstrations that do more to perplex than instruct the pupil; but everything is plain, logical, thorough and common-sense. most cordially commend your two Arithmetics to every teacher, as being by far the cheapest and best in the Dominion.
From W. H. LAW, B.A., M.D., Principal, Brockville High School, Ontario.
I find the Arithmetic to be concise yet exceedingly clear in its explanations, with a sufficient. number of problems to illustrate each successive principle. It appears to be admirably adapted for drill-work, and is calculated to make the student thorough, accurate aud self-reliant. The diagrams found through the work constitute an additional feature to recommend it, especially to the junior pupil.
From REV. THOMAS NICHOLSON, Inspector of Schools, New Brunswick.
They are far superior in many excellent qualities to any I have seen. The illustrations are admirable, and readily give an intelligent conception of the different rules to even a very younă pupil Dr. Macvicar has confered a great boon on the public by such works.

The Corporation of McGill University is associated with the Superintendent of Public Instruction in the direction of the McGill Normal School under the regulations of the Protestant Committee. The Normal School is intended to give a thorough training to Protestant teachers.
The complete course extends over a period of four annual sessions, an Elementary School Diploma being obtained at the close of the first session, a Model School Diploma at the close of the second, and an Academy Diploma at the close of the fourth. All these Diplomas are valid as authorizations to teach in any part of the Province of Quebec, without limitation of time.
None are admitted to the School but those who agree to devote themselves to teaching in the Province of Quebec for at least three years. To such persons, however, the advantages of the School are free of charge, and the sum of $1,200 is annually distributed in bursaries to aid in the payment of the board of the forty most successful pupils that do not reside at home during the School session. A small allowance for travelling expenses is made to those who reside more than ninety miles from Montreal.
All candidates who present certificates of having passed in Grade III. Model School Course, and all holders of Elementary School Diplomas, are exempt from examination for admission to the Elementary School Class. All candidates who have passed at the A. A. examinations, taking two-thirds of the aggregate marks, and who have passed in French, and all holders of Model School Diplomas, are exempt from examination for admission to the Model School Class. Holders of Elementary School Diplomas, desiring admission to the Model School Class, are examined in Algebra, Geometry and French only. The conditions of admission in other cases may be learned by consulting the prospectus of the School.
The next session of the School opens in September, 1890. Names of candidates will be enrolled on the 1st and 2nd days of the month, examinations will be held on the 3rd, successful candidates will be received and lectures will commence on the 4th.
Forms of application and copies of the Prospectus of the School may be obtained by application to the Principal, Dr. Robins. When issued, the Prospectus of the School will be sent to every Protestant minister of Quebec, as far as addresses can be found.
