Advertisement. IN offering to the publio, for their approbation and patronago, "TAR PROGRESSIVE READER, or JUVENILE MONITOR, po apology is deemed necessary. Among the many Reading Books heretofore published, but few are adapted particularly to the capacities of children when they first leave the Spelling-Book.

The compiler does not design, in the present publication, to introduce any new system for learning to read-neither does he at. tempt an improvement upon the old plan. by interspersing an end, less variety of « tropes and figures," as unintelligible to a child as they are perplexing-but, on the contrary, his leading object is simply to embody in the work, a variety of matter, suited to the capacities and tastes of children, and which shall, at the same time, have a moral and instructive tendency. Many of the lessons aro accompanied with appropriate cuts, calculated to excite the atten tion of the pupil to the subject following.

Respecting the usual instructions to teachers, and lengthy stric. sures on pronunciation, &c. which are seldom regarded by the child, It has been wisely recommended by another, that the teacher who is deficient in the knowledge requisite to his employment, had better examine the criticisms of Walker or other distinguished wri.

Nothing original is claimed in this work; but a judicious selec tion from the great mass of matter already before the public, the compiler flatters himself, will insure its admittance into our.com mon scnools-devoutly hoping, through the blessing of God, that it will serve the bumble purpose for which it is designed.

THE COMPILER. Concord, July, 1890
