Give your child a Newspaper.
--A child beginning to read becomes delighted with a newspapers, because he reads of names and things which are very familiar, and will make progress accordingly.
A newspaper in one year is worth a quarter's schooling to a child, and every father must consider that substantial information is connected with advancement.
A mind occupied becomes fortified against the ills of life, and is braced for any emergency.
Children amused by reading and study are, of course, more considerate and more easily governed.
How many thoughtless young men have spent their evenings in a tavern or grog shop who ought to have been reading!
How many parents who have not spent twenty dollars for books for their families, would have given thousands to reclaim a son or daughter who had ignorantly and thoughtlessly fallen into temptation.
