Don't be content to read Dickens without a knowledge of the author himself. If you are a lover of nature and can find an appreciative audience, read John Burroughs "Pe pacton", "Winter Sunshine" and Oth ers; also Maurice Thompson's "Byways and Bird-notes" and learn something from them. If you want history and can't endure "dry bones" there is noth ing better than McMaster's "History of the People of the United States", and Green's "History of the English People". If you yearn for poetry, be sure and satisfy yourself with strong meat, Shakespeare, Tennyson, Gathe, Longfellow, Lowell, Lanier and Whit tier.
