Excerpt from The New Basis of Geography: A Manual for the Preparation of the Teacher

Within a certain pigeon-hole of my letter file there is an interesting collection of letters, including among the writers several teachers, a well-known traveller and author, an officer of the navy, a college president, and a prominent business man. Most of the letters are purely of an inquiring turn, but in some of them a suggestion of "see here, you" is apparent. The purport of each is a query about the alleged newness which popular usage is connecting with the science of geography.

Now I should like uncommonly well to know something definite about it myself, but after a thorough research I fail to find that the earth is either more or less round like a ball or an orange than when, some forty odd years ago, I learned to sing the capitals of the states to a birch-bark accompaniment. According to Mr. Milton:

"...a gryphon through the wilderness,
With winged course o'er hill or moory dale,
Pursues the Arimaspian, who by stealth
Had from his wakeful custody purloined
The guarded gold."
