'•Does it hurt a boy to read novels?11
Take a clean sponge and dip it into
a running gutter, and what is the re-
sult? The sponge can be cleaned and
purified again, but only after much la-
The human mind, my lad, is a sponge,
and it soaks up the good, bad and in- j
different with the same relish.
The great trouble with novels is the i
false ideas and vicious theories. It is '
the same with all serial stories iu the
so-called boys1 papers, and it is so to a
certain exteut in many of the hoy books.
In the first place the boy, no matter
what his age, is always made to per-
form feats of valor which common
sense teaches you are impossible. He
never acts nor talks like a boy. His
adventures as a hunter, detective or
runaway are too improbable.
Nevertheless, as you read you find
yourself half believing, at least, and the
next thing is to wonder why you can't
be a hero. The story makes you dissat-
isfied with school and home and family
government, and the first thought is lo
run away or plan some adventure.
Even if you say to yourself that you
won't believe a word of the story, the
mind will still soak up many of the
false theories and absurd ideas, and
later on in years it may cost you some-
thing to get rid of them.
If a stranger should tell you that, as
he was passing over a certain bridge
spauuing a creek, he saw a gold watch
lying in the water, but was in too great
a hurry to stop, you would probably be-
lieve the story. If you bad positive
intelligent, well-posted man? School
education, to begin with. If we learned
nothing after we'left school the world
would slip backward. His mind goes
on, day after day, week alter week,
picking up scraps of history; politics,
travel, botany, astronomy, and so forth,
and by and by he is a human eucyelo- ,
pedia. He may read love, stories'and
adventures all his days aud be no better
j off. Indeed, he will (v far worse off.
"Well, what shall a b< y read?'1
There are one or two boy papers of
good moral tone. The heroes are not
exaggerated, and tho adventures are not
improbable. If the story is of mining,
tho author fftuy some valuable infor- ,
mation in regard to-sninerals anil how
to mine. If if ii of hunting you are
tnught how to make snares and traps,
and are given the principles of taxi-
dermy. If it is of boa tine' vou am
taught the principles of
rowing. If it is of the
given the correct names
yards and sails, and the
mil in £
.sua, you are
of ropes and
traits of the people of other countries
are correctly stated.
There are a few boy books which are
i true to every-day life! R-ad these, and
if you have furt her time take history, or
something else which is certain to re-
turn some benefit—a daily paper—with
its news from every foreign country—■
its home happenings—its discussions of
all matters of interest—its incidents
and accidents, is geography, history,
grammar and orthography combined.
Think of these things, my boy. If
you were going to be a boy forever the
case would be different. No one w ould
expect anything great of you. But, as
the years roll on, you have got to pick
up tue colleges and factories anil rail-
roads and general business of the world
and keep them moving. Will such trash
as "llulialo lhll s Last Shut or '"Tho
