In the greatly awakened interest in the common-school
subjects during recent years, geography has received a large share. The establishment of chairs of geography in some of our greatest universities, the giving of college courses in physiography, meteorology, and commerce, and the general extension of geography courses in normal schools, academies, and high
schools, may be cited as evidence of this growing appreciation of the importance of the subject.
