To our Correspondents.
Wilfrid Welford suggests : “If you would put the address in your lists of merit we should then know if any of our friends had been commended, and how high they had got.” He should bear in mind that inserting the addresses would take three times the space set apart for the publication of the names, and that if these are printed in full, sufficient means of identification exist, especially considering that, as a general rule, the papers from a particular school are examined at the same time, and the names of the writers therefore easily found.
Charley Saunders hopes he has not offended us by sending too large a sheet of paper. He may rest assured on that point that we are rather amused than offended. He sends us this month an anecdote of some children at the sea side, which is fairly interesting, but has two bad features. In the first place, it is not written anything like so well as he can write if he likes ; in the second place, it is written on both sides of the paper, which is against our rule.
Ernest Green writes: “I was so pleased to see my name in the second class that I now feel I must try with all my might to reach the first class. The more I try the more I seem to learn something fresh every time.” He goes on to say that he should like to be a parson, and asks us what we think of it. We advise him to read over very carefully the first paper in this number on patience, and make up his mind to be as “strong and patient" as possible.
It appears that one of the papers sent from Turton National School was overlooked in the marking last month. The fact of there being only one complaint of this kind shows that in all other cases the names of the writers were duly classified. Several papers reach us every month without signature, and with these of course we can do nothing. In this case, however, it appears to have been signed, and we are therefore unable to account for its non-appearance.
A gentleman writes concerning the numbers of the Young Scholar that have been issued :
I find them a great help, as the boys read the very suitable selections which have characterised the magazine so far, with a zest truly gratifying to a teacher. There has been a marked improvement in the reading, both as to style and fluency, since we began to use them.
We are glad to receive such a valuable testimony as to the good work which the Young Scholar is capable of doing in schools,
Another gentleman writes :—,
Allow me, my dear sir, to thank you first for your publication, and again for the mode which it is conducted. My pupils now work industriously at their composition, and, on each arrival of the publication, are extremely anxious to ascertain their “position on the list.” I wish you could see
your way to offer like stimulus in other subjects, as grammar, geography, arithmetic.
In deference to the wish of our correspondent, we have this month selected an arithmetical problem as one of the questions to be answered.
Another gentleman writes :
I congratulate you on your little periodical. Several of our lads take it, and I use it as a class book for reading, to the great delight of the youngsters.
A young scholar writes :
It is with great pleasure that I compete for those prizes that are offered in your inimitable boys' book, the Young Scholar. If not successful I will not get faint-hearted, but with real British pluck go in each time with a determination to win. In searching over those books which I must do before I can write a neat account, I have acquired more knowledge than I otherwise should have. So if I am not one of the prize winners I really do gain something. Hoping that your magazine will be the favourite of every schoolboy in the British islands, &c.
Several additional examination papers have been received, but owing to their being sent after the prescribed time, we have been unable to include them in the list.
