The New Zealanders are about to
spend a considerable sum of money
in acclimatizing the humble-.boo, so
as to assist the agriculturists in
cultivating clover. Common bees
are not strong enough to force their
way into the petals of the clover

as they fly from one to the other.
For this purpose, therefore, the
humble-bee is needed, but so far
the nests sent out have been de
stroyed. Attempts to acclimatize
the common boe in some hot oli
matos have so tar proved useless.

"Sanford's Arithmetics are superior to
any that I have seen. in the fullness of the
examples, the clearness aud simplicity
of the analyses, and the accuraoy of the
rules and definitions. This opinion is
based upon a full and tho.zough test in
the sohool-room. To those teauhers who
may examine these Arithmetiot with
reference to introduction, I would es
pecially commend the treatment of Per
centage and Profit and Loss. No text
