Rules for Debate.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Principles of Procedure in Deliberative bodies. By George Glover Crocker, President Massachusetts Senate in 1883. Second Edition. 16mo, cloth extra, 75 cents.

"The treatment of the subject is scientific and at the same time eminently practical, so that the book is adapted to the use of those experienced in parliamentary procedure, as well as of begiuners." -J. D. Long, ex-Governor of Massachusetts and ex-Member of Congress.

"It seems to me to be an admirable book for those who desire a knowledge of the ordinary rules of parliamentary practice, and will, I have no doubt, be very useful in extending such knowledge." -James A. Beaver, Governor of Pennsylvania.

"Mr. Crocker, preserving all his usual accuracy and clearness, has condensed into a pocket manual what others who have treated the subject have not been able to say as well as in ponderous volumes." -H. L. Dawes, Senator for Massachusetts.

"The author is evidently an authority on this subject. The book has a carefully prepared topical index, and is in every way adapted for use by clubs, societies, and deliberative bodies of all kinds." -Indianapolis Sentinel.

"In no treatise which we have seen can a knowledge of parliamentary procedure be gained so easily as in Mr. Crocker's little volume." -Providence Journal.

"It is clearly and concisely written and its rules embody the best usages on all points. The book is of convenient size, and the mechanical work on it of rare excellence." -Register, Wheeling, W. Va.
