Excerpt from Primary Reading During my sixth year, I spelt my way, under the dame, through the Shorter Catechism, the Proverbs, and the New Testa ment, and then entered upon her highest form as a member of the Bible class; but all the while the process of acquiring kw ledge had been a dark one, which I slowly mastered, in humble confidence in the awful wisdom of the school-mistress, t kw ing whither it tended, when at once my mind awoke to the meaning of that most delightful of all narratives, the story of Joseph. Was there ever such a discovery made before! I actually found out for myself that the art of reading is the art of finding stories in books, and from that moment reading became one of the most delightful of my amusements.
