Postville Post (Newspaper) - August 31, 1882, Postville, Iowa  children s books. Children s books abound nowadays but i question if children Are As Well off As when their libraries were scan tier. The Opportunity for Choice is so Large that Barents Are commonly too bewildered to make selections and end by taking the Book the bookseller recommends or which recommends itself by having the greatest number of pictures. Of illustrated books there Are now a Hundred where the reused be to one. Illus  traction is in itself a Good thing when the work is As Well done As we find it to Day but except for the smallest juveniles it ought not to be made of More importance than the text. It is a Well known fact that Many publishers select pictures and then order a Story written to fit them an author so hampered cannot produce so Good work As though his invention were Given free play and the result of his labor is often of the poorest. Comparatively few fathers and themselves seriously to provide the Best possible mental food for the growing intelligences in their charge. The want of a sense of responsibility in this matter is As astonishing As with regard to matters More important still. A child s mind in just As much dependent for its Best development on the Quality of the food furnished it As its body is upon its physical support. A child often gets More real mental culture from browsing at will in its father s libary than it gets a from All its school lessons. The school teaching is mainly Good for discipline of the mental faculty secondarily for information while the Reading of books May be made a powerful instrument for moral training As Well As for education of the higher qualities of the intellect imagination humor and the like. There is a notion of the necessity for writing Down to the supposed level of the childish intelligence which is quite mistaken. A milk and water diet is inferior to one of milk undiluted figuratively As Well As literally spearing. A co input Sory cramming of the child s mind is one thing and a very bad one to surround it with the Best literature and leave it to its natural reaching out after what it can comprehend and enjoy is quite another thing to be done. The intellect of Many grown persons As Well As children is dwarfed or becomes flabby Nei Veless and inactive for want of wholesome and substantial sustenance. Ohil Dren s Reading it seems to me is at present especially defective in stimulus to the imagination. Fairy tales have not the Vogue they had Twenty years ago. I have seen children whose rending i knew was limited to that of flavor less literature so plentiful now and it was Plain that their prosaic Little minds needed above All things some of this culture of the fancy and imagination they knew nothing of the most fascinating plays of childhood in which my brother and i used to live out of ourselves and of the world of every Day having transferred our personality entirely for Itie time being into that of some favourites of fiction Robin Hood and his men Friar tuck and King Richard or any of the Long list of Waverly novels heroes. A move has been made in the right direction of late by the publication of certain classes of literature in a form suited to children s capacity. Such Are the abridged editions of Froissart s chronicle Mallory s King Arthur and other books which i have noticed on bookseller s counters. Some of these Are unfortunately gotten up with so much elegance that people of moderate Means cannot indulge in in their Purchase. The established favourites in the line of fairy tales ought never to be allowed to get out of print for the newly written ones do not approach the old ones in Merit. Injurious habits.

A veritable instance of the Peculiar fascination which the Snake exerts was witnessed within a Short distance of our City. The gentlemen who saw this says he was walking leisurely along the Road when his attention was directed to the movements of a Brown Thrush which was fluttering about near a Small Plum Bush and at intervals giving a Ory As of distress. He walked up to the Bush supposing he would find a Brood of Young Birds. He looked carefully but saw nothing and was. Walking off when he noticed that the Thrush had returned to the Bush from which he had fright ened it. He waited a moment to Wafon Ite movements when he saw it Fly Down on the ground beneath the Plum. There it stood still a Short while then began to Ciro e around the Bush still crying in its Peculiar tones. This circling was kept up for a while and then Tho Thrush Sei med gradually to weaken and at length stood perfectly still immovable with its wings partly open and with its head Bent Forward. He Drew nearer to the Bush when he heard an ominous Hiss and looking Down under the Plum saw a huge Black Snake coiled up and about to Spring upon the Bird. He frightened the Snake away and picked up Tho Bird which made no Effort to escape and seemed powerless in a few minutes , the Bird revived and shortly afterwards flew p to Rah Iru r i x a physician writes in have found that or.
