book to the atten
(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.
E. LEGOUVÉ. PE commend this valuable little book to the atten
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 Man. agement 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 BEECHE
Neatly Bound, Cloth, 40 Cents.
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. 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."

FROM THE AUTHORS' PREFACE:
“ 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 rewsed until a fresh supply seems to be an imperative demand.
“ This little work has been prepared with the design of partially rupplying 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 mne careful preparation of Motion Songs, Charades, Tableaux, Dialogues, Concert Recitations, Motion Pieces, Drills, etc. 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 pre paring matter for use by young minds."
