making an effort to vote a negro who
worked with Mr. McGill, and when
Mr. McGill interposed he slapped
McGill in the face and cursed him
violently. This brought on the shooting,
in which Mr. Jas. McGill, the

killed. Macomson killed the old gen

lepends the child's progress in all
>ther piadies and reqoires our particuar
atteution. There ate so many
nethodb of teaching reading that it is
mposible to say which is the one
nethod. In fact each teacher has bis
)r her method of teaching and of
:ourse thinks that the correct one, or
t good one at least, it noc mey wouiq |
lot use it.
I think it would be weli to employ
,hese principles in all reading classes:
1. The child must be interested.
2. It must recognize the words at
3. The words in the book mnst express
the same thought to them that
:he spoken words would.
4. It must gain knowledge from
reading, iu other words, it must know
more from having reaa.
First, as we said before, the child
nust be interested, make it feel that
.here is a pleasant occupation before it,
md not the terrible task that some
jhildren seem to think. Ask questions
Dn the lesson, such questions as the
;hild will understand and be able to
inswer. Have cach and all of them
;o tell something about the lesson. If
hey don't seem to understand the
subject keep asking questions and explaining
until they do.
Of course tbe cmici muse recognize
:he words at sight. Never allow them
:o pass over a word without pronouncing
it distinctly ni:J correctly. ?lf there
ire difficult in the lesson explain
the meaning of them and have the
:hil<fen u^c them in sentences. You
night write the words on the board
md see who can make tbe greatest
oumberof sentences for the next day.
Many a time a child reads a sentence
without once thinking what it means.
Daestion them on each sentence in the
paragraph and see that thay understand
it. Let the words in the book convey
the same meaning that they would if
you were relating an interesting little
story to them.
At the close of the lesson hare them
tell in their own words what they
have learned from the lesson; and I
think a good plan would be to have
them write a short story about the
lesson, telling the most important
things. Of course this need Rot be
done every day.
Do not leave one lesson until you
are sure it is understood by all. This
is one great trouble in teaching reading;
the child becomes tired of one
lesson and wishes to see what the next
one "tells about." Try to invent some
plan by which the child will be interested
until you are satisfied lo leave
one lessen for another.
Some teachers seem to think there is
no nse in navin? narticular attention
to punctuation. I heard one say, not
long since, don't teach a child to" raise
its voice at a question and lower it at
a period. I may be wrong but think
it best to teach "them this until they
are old enough to see that they can
make pauses, raise and lower their
voices according to the meaning conveyed
As to the little ones, of course we
do not teach them the letters. Tell
them the -words and don't, under any
circumstances, allow them to spell the
words after the letters have been
learned. The habit when once ac
quired is, oh,, so hard to break! It is
n/->f nnn?c:oi-ff "fAT" /^Vn MI'PTl trt tnAW
the letters before they begin to read.
What a comfort not to have to spend
so many weary days teaching the
letters. The "objective method" of
teaching reading is very good for beginners,
aud I think before long will
be used to the exclusion of all others.
Is it well to confine a child to one
particular book? I do not think so.
Let them find nice little stories at
home and bring them to read. It
would be well to keep several books
in the room and have them use first
one and then another.
It is a long road to travel and re0aires
time and a great deal of pa
tience. without which no teacher can
expect to be successful. Put your
heart iuto the work, be interested in it
and the child cannot help being interested.
