VIEWS TO ILLUSTRATE THE CHARACTER OF EARLY WESTERN SETTLEMENTS. No. 1. Boonesborough, Ky., in 1775, the first fort erected in Kentucky, and the first permanent settlement in the State. Note the stockade connecting the outer walls of the houses; the windows and doors all face the interior of the enclosure.
No. 2. Astoria, in 1811, embodying the same principles of construction as seen in the Boonesborough picture.
No. 3. Fort Frye, Ohio, in 1792. This old engraving gives an excellent idea of the construction of the block-house with its overhanging story. One of these is placed at each angle of the triangular stockade.

Neither scholarship, simplicity, nor interest can, by itself, make an ideal history text-book. The great success of
Theodore Roosevelt endorses Breasted's Ancient Times
Morey's Ancient Peoples
is due to its rare combination of these three desiderata.
In The Outlook for Feb. 14, 1917, Mr. Roosevelt writes in
an article entitled, The Daun and Sunrise of History: “D UT one of our own men, the distinguished Orien
talist and Egyptologist, Professor James Henry
Breasted, of the University of Chicago, has now produced the best book of its kind that has ever been written on the subject. His “Ancient Times : A History of the Early World,' is written with the avowed purpose to be simple enough for use in high schools; but, perhaps for that very reason – inasmuch as the very best book for intelligent and well-grown boys is usually an uncommonly good book for grown-up men and women - his work is absorbingly interesting for every one who, without being an original student, is yet able to appreciate the tremendous drama of the ages which Mr. Breasted unfolds before our eyes.” For full descriptive pamphlet, address the publishers
