MANY questions of selection and annotation were discussed with Dr. W. H. Clawson of the University of Toronto. Information concerning cowboy life was received from Mr. and Mrs. Will A. Emmert, formerly of Delta county, Colorado, as well as from Professor Lomax of the University of Texas. The manuscript was read and criticized by Professor Albert F. Kuersteiner of Indiana University, Mr. Joseph S. Ragsdale, principal of the McCracken County (Kentucky) High School, Mr. Garnet G. Dodds of the Emmerich Manual Training High School of Indianapolis, Miss Selma A. Stempel of the Fort Madison (Iowa) High School, and the General Editor of the series. Professor Cross's suggestions saved the section of new Ballads from spiritual resemblance to life in Tantallon Castle. The indebtedness to Child and Gummere is infinite.

Cordial thanks are due besides to the living authors and their publishers, whose permission to use copyrighted matter is duly noted in loco.

So far as this volume is mine to do with, I dedicate it to my parents and my wife, in the name of that Tradition through which days are Bound each to each by natural piety.”

G. H. ST.
