She was onlte a precocious youngster and had I shown marked ability In her studies. ..'It was the first time I had been thrown PBtS. children who are being taught to rend by the '(phonetic" method and Mt was quite a revelation to me and to Bee how readily tils young miss was > learning that art. She could not only 53jbd every lesson In hor primer but Qjsnld by spelling and pronouncing the words phonetically read In the readers L Attended' for much further n/ivonm^ pupils than she was. This child would come Into a room wheer I was sitting reading a magazine and begin to spell $bonetlcally some conspicuous word ijqpr the magazine cover and In every Instance she pronounced the word cor ie had no Idea of how to epell the.word In the ordinary way nor pad she any Idea of what the word meant yet She could pronounce them absolutely correctly by the use of the ynethod which she was being taught and was acquiring so readily. There was no such system In vogue when I was a child and It has not been bo many years since It sprung Into popular_ favor. When I was a j child I was taught my letters first. I thn to spell and finally to read and I I can reme&her how I and my sisters | jg = ! a t;? II To Wa \70U fellows who ahva | * be mighty glad if y this great sale.

Great stress was laid on spelling in the days of our fathers and mothers < grandfathers and grandmotheres and spelling Ibees were very much In vogue 1 In olden times. My mother was a > good speller and could hardly be stump ed on a word and had the roputallon the country round for her good spellIng. ' Of course to be a good reader Is an 1 art but we think to be a good speller Is also an art. However, wiser heads 1 than ours are planning and working 1 out the systems being taught the 1 children those days and we do not 1 believe they will let these tots bo ' neglected when It comes o acquiring an education. This child I ain tolling you about In the brief tlmo I was associated with her taught me a great deal of the rudiments of the phonetic method. Such an apt pupil was this child that her teacher has already predicted that she will make her mark as a teacher of English and small as she is she Is often called upon by the neighbors to teach them the phonetic method of reading in order that they might assist their small tots In mastering the are as she was mastering It. There have been a wonderful lot of changes In teaching methods In the last decade and one of theni 1 heartily w.th had been changed In my school days and that Is doing away with the dreaded examinations and substituting In their stead the test or rating sys- > torn.
