(DEDICATION.) To the Scholars of the High and Normal School. For you this sketch was written : permit me to dedicate it to you, in fact, to intrust it to your care. Pupils to-day, to-morrow you will be teachers; to-morrow, generation after generation of youth will pass through your guardian hands. An idea received by you must of necessity reach thousands of minds. Help me, then, to spread abroad the work in which you have some share, and allow me to add to the great pleasure of having numbered you among my hearers the still greater happiness of calling you my assistants,

tion of teachers and others interested in the instruction of the pupils of our public schools. It treats of the First Steps in Reading,” “Learning to Read,'

“ “Should we Read as we Talk," « The Use and Management of the Voice," “ The Art of Breathing,' “ Pronunciation,” “Stuttering," " Punctuation, Readers and Speakers," "Reading as a Means of Criticism," “On Reading Poetry," etc., and makes a strong claim as to the value of reading aloud, as being the most wholesome of gymnastics, for to strengthen the voice is to strengthen the whole system and develop vocal power.

By REV. HENRY WARD BEECHER.

Neatly Bound, Cloth, 40 Cents.

ම්.

HE attention of all persons interested in the Art

of Expression is invited to our new issue of

Henry Ward Beecher's unique and masterly exposition of the fundamental principles of true oratory.

Training in this department,” said Beecher, “ is the great want of our day; for we are living in a land whose genius, whose history, whose institutions, whose people, eminently demand oratory."

It must be conceded that few men ever enjoyed a wider experience or achieved a higher reputation in the realm of public oratory than Mr. Beecher. What he had to say on this subject was born of experience, and his own inimitable style was at once both statement and illustrative of his theme.

From The School Journal, New York City :-" Richly freighted with the golden fruit of observation, experience, sympathy, understanding, knowledge, and

reason."
