Michigan in condensed form to date. This work, in three volumes, has been furnished to all township, county and state officers and can readily be consulted by all teachers. The numbers in this little book refer to the sections in the Compiled Laws and the amendnents made by the legislature of 1899 have been propurly noticed by marginal notes or comments.

This edition omits the uniform text-book law of 1897, which was repealed in 1899 and mentions briefly in the appendix three laws passed by the legislature of 1899. We present this edition as a correct, although somewhat abridged, treatise on the school law of Michigan.
