Reading Ough. to Be Made Joy and Not Duty for Family of Children By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Mrs. Thomas was in the habit of reading to her children every day. She chose excellent books, and normally the reading hour should have been very enjoyable. But before she started she always questioned her audience as to what she had read the day before, and if the children did not at once remem- be, was apt to close the book and refuse to go on. The result was that the hour which should have been so delightful was soon positively unpopular among the youngsters, and they listened to the reading with only perfunctory attention. If children are to enjoy books and reading aloud the element of duty and edification must be eliminated. Perhaps they will not always remember what has gone before, but if so, the fault lies not in the child, but in the reader or the choice of the book. Sometimes, of course, a child's attention wanders and he misses something of importance. But he is far more apt to turn back and look for the connecting link or to inquire about it if left to himself than if examined and reproved for lack of interest. If a parent really wishes to introduce a child to the best in literature, she can accomplish the purpose best by making the classics a joy rather than a duty. It it just the element of work connected with them which makes them so distasteful to the ch'Id who is obliged to read them in school, and the chief reason for reading them to him is to take them out of the scholastic atmosphere and make them recreation. The school hours comprise enough formal education for any child, and whatever else is necessary is much more easily and effectively instilled by suggestion and unconscious guidance than by direct teaching. The blue grass belt, extending southeastward from Kentucky to the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains in Watauga, Ashe and Allegheny counties in North Carolina, ends so abruptly that the change is noticeable within 50 feet.

Globe-Gazette's Quilt Pattern SNOW Here is a favorite among our English sisters as well as American women. In early New England days the diamond was used in making 'best quilts," and the combination of diamond and hexagons make a :ood looking quilt that is used for the "state occasions." "Snow Crystals" is made of blue, soft pink and white on a light blue block, anj alternated with a plain white block. This pattern is from Quilt Book No. 24 which contains six other patterns. For your copy send 10 cents in stamp or coin to Quilt c'.epart- ment, Mason City Globe-Gazette. 200 Fifth Avenue, New York, N. Y. Be sure to ask for book No. 24. Miss Eloise G.
