The embarrassment which results from a lack of knowledge of correct spelling is surely the most annoying. Constant use and practice and a never failing watchfulness and correction make good Spellers. No one ever became such by applying the few rules which we have given, but there must be a care ful training of the ear as well as the eye to the right formation of the word. Orthography is learned almost altogether by the eye, therefore the teacher's drills in orthography must be of a nature to require the pupil to constantly observe the word forms and print them retentively upon the memory. Cor rect pronunciation is also an absolute aid to correct orthography, therefore in this work we have given the correct pronunciation and syllabication of each word.
We have endeavored to acquaint the learner with the words which are most essential to a practical education. It embraces about words. Special attention is directed to the lessons on business and law, and ayno nyms and antonyms. There are also lessons devoted to the different ocon pations, professions, etc., which will be of special interest to all. We believe the book to contain a more exhaustive and a better classified list on these subjects than any other book published, and it cannot fail to be of special help to any student. The definitions are necessarily brief, and even meager in some instances, yet they meet the ordinary requirements.
