Topical Inder.
Note.-In looking up any topic, the reader should scan the whole page referred
to by the index, because one topic is often alluded to several times on the same
page, but the index gives the number only once. More than three thousand topics
are indexed, which, with the number of pages assigned to each topic and the num-
ber of times which that topic occurs on the page, makes a total of about one hun.
dred thousand gems of thought thus made available in this one volume.
