FROM THE AUTHORS' PREFACE:

a

“ Much experience in the preparation of school entertainments bas shown the great difficulty of finding new material of just the right quality for presentation. These entertainments have multiplied to such an extent during the last few years, that the good and sprightly matter contained in the old books has been used and revsed until a fresh supply seems to be an imperative demand.

“ This little work has been prepared with the design of partially supplying this demand, and much care has been taken to make of it a book meet for the purpose. School entertainments of the present time generally present a much more varied performance than of old, and the call for variety has been met in this book by ine careful preparation of Motion Songs, Charades, Tableaux, Dialogues, Concert Recitations, Motion Pieces, Drills, etc. The preser. vation of a pure, moral tone throughout them has been kept in view, since it is not possible to take too much care in this respect in pro paring matter for use by young minds."

THIS

HIS work shows in a simple and concise way how any

person of ordinary perseverance and good common sense may become a ready and effective public speaker. The author has had abundant experience both in teaching and practicing the art of discourse, and is therefore able to lead the student along the road to success.

The book is purposely made small because a few principles, well illustrated and applied, have more value than long and involved discussions, which will be forgotten as soon as read.

The young speaker is here shown how to gather thoughts, how to arrange them to the best advantage, and how to form clear outlines. He is then shown how to overcome timidity, how to secure ease and fluency of language, and how to acquire such a mastery of the arts of the Orator as will give him confidence and power.

To beginners this book will come as a revelation of unknown and unhoped-for possibilities. Its wide circulation and careful study will enable many to speak well who now speak ill, and give voice to many others whose mouths in public are now sealed altogether.
