not only be valuable to the student, but will, as experience
has shown, arouse his interest, and this cannot but quicken
his progress in the mastery of the language itself. The
selections of this Reader all deal with Latin-American
subjects, and are supplemented by footnotes containing
fundamental information about Latin America. These
footnotes have been put into very easy Spanish and in-
cluded in the vocabulary, notes, and exercises. They
should be included in the assignments for translation.

Several unimportant modifications of the original texts
have been made, in order to meet the exigencies of an
elementary reader.

The editor is indebted to Professor M. A. DeVitis, of
the Main High School, Dallas, Texas, for the selection of
the articles and stories of this Reader, as well as for assist-
ance in many other respects. For many valuable sugges-
tions the editor is indebted to Professor H. R. Lang and
Professor A. H. Corley of Yale College, to Mr. E. W.
Supple of the Sheffield Scientific School, and to Mr. Gari-
baldi Laguardia of the United States Naval Academy.
