THE LOCAL PAPER.
The local paper should be found in
every home. No children should grow
up in ignorance who can be taught to
appreciate the home paper. It is
said to be the stepping stone of intel-
ligence in all those matters not to be
fouud in books. Give your children
some foreign paper which contains
not a single word about any person,
place or thing which they ever saw or
perhaps ever heard of, and how could
you expect them to be interested.
But let them have the home paper
and read of people whom they meet
and of places which they are familiar
with and soon an interest is awakened
which Increases with every arrival of
the local paper. Thus a habit of
reading is formed and those children
will read the paper all their lives and
become intelligent men and women—|
