Reading remains for consideration. In
this connexion there is much that can only be
taught in actual practice, as for instance when the
boy should take breath, at what point he should
introduce a pause into a line, where the sense ends
or begins, when the voice should be raised or
lowered, what modulation should be given to each
phrase, and when he should increase or slacken
speed, or speak with greater or less energy.
