"Reading in the schools, when properly conducted, has reference to three
objects: to an ability to give easy utterance to written language; to the ac-
quisition of general knowledge and discipline; and to the power of properly
expressing thought and feeling by the tones of the voice."-DR. SEARS.

"The voice of the young orator should be first modulated by the practice
of reading select passages from the best poets.”—QUINTILIAN.
