1902 printing of the 1902 copyrighted text. The author is credited as a Ph.D. and as Associate Professor of English in Lewis Institute and as the author of additional books. This revised and rearranged version of an earlier text is best adapted for the first two years of high school. The six chapters are composition in general, punctuation and sentence-structure, correctness in the sentence, description, narration, exposition and argument. The first chapter drills the student in reproduction, summary, and letter writing. The second chapter asks students to learn by hearty forty typical sentences with their punctuation. The third chapter covers practical grammar and idiom. The last three chapters are the second year, dealing with types of discourse; principles of unity, sequence, and contrast; the description chapter uses pictures; and spelling. Exercises are used throughout. The Schultz Archive's copy is roughly the complete text.
