"Worthless reading makes worth
less people." Put that in big let
ters and hang it up in your sit
ting-room where you can see it
every day, and where the young Hi
people can see it. Maybe it will s
call thek attention to the books L<
they are reading, which are up
lifting or degrading, says the Ohio lt
State Journal. They are one or
the other. Parents don't seem to te
realize this. Nine out of ten of U
them do not seem to understand tr
the significance of a book. An l
education amounts to nothing it a
boy or girls turns it into shallow '
reading. Their minds are filled w
I with trash and their thinkiong isn
weak, when they read the kind of
books that are mostly read these
days. It is a sad mistake to al
low this matter to go at random,
S and to allow the youth's taste for
reading to grow rank and wild.
The highest triump of an educa.
e tion is the desire and habit to read
rt good books. It makes no differ
o, ence how well a boy gets along in
I- his mathematics or language, if he
has no taste for good reading it is '
U all waste. Parents will take great
interest in the marks their child
gets at school, but they are hope
lessly careless as to what those
marks mean for him in his after
life. It is time they were giv ,LI
attention to this subject.
