PREFACE.

THIS

HIS book is designed for upper grades in grammar

schools, and for those classes in high schools, academies, and ungraded schools, that require a brief, practical, progressive course in English grammar. It is specially adapted to the needs of pupils who have completed the second book in the author's series entitled, “Practical Lessons in the Use of. English,” but it can be used independently of that work or of that series.

The aim of the work is not to teach the greatest possible number of facts about the English language, but to give the pupil a mastery of the leading grammatical principles as a means toward the right understanding and correct use of English.

The thorough training in essential principles which the pupil must receive from the use of this book will furnish him the best possible preparation for higher English studies or for the study of other languages.

The work does not consist of a mere statement of definitions and rules. Every principle is presented through the study of examples, by which means the pupil's knowledge of grammatical facts is based upon his own observation.
