Mrs. J. H. McDonough, of Dallas, Texas, has written a letter to The Southern Messenger, published at San Antonio, in regard to the supply of reading for the young. She has a definite plan capable of application to many places, and expressed in these words:

The intelligent, inquiring American child of to-day will read somethingif not clean, moral books suitable to his age, then books of the Midnight Marriage stamp, and pastors, parents, and teachers are responsible. So the question arises how to provide proper literature for the children in the formative period of their lives, thereby cultivating a taste for the best, and making the reading of dangerous and trashy books, in after years, no temptationsimply an impossibility. Now there seem to be only two ways open to usone is to create a demand for Catholic books in the public libraries, the other is to establish parish libraries. I have been told that books requested by a number of public library patrons would be purchased, but in the Southwest, where the Catholic population is numerically small, I fancy the number of Catholic books which reached the library shelves during a year, through this method, was rather insignificant. The more effectual plan, though involving work and sacrifice, is the establishment of parish libraries in connection with the Sunday-Schools. These being under the direct supervision of the pastor will be a great influence for good—will reach all the children alike, rich and poor, will foster a love for reading, and raise the thoughts and minds of the children to higher things. In the Cathedral parish, Dallas, a Sunday-School library was opened last year with a limited number of books, which through the donations of friends has been increased to 300 volumes. For six months the circulation was 1,542 books, and the library has been open only one hour on Sunday between the Masses. The ambition of those in charge is to furnish the room with bcok-cases, desk, tables, etc., to increase the number of books, and open at least twice a week. This they hope, with our Lord's help and the kindly assistance of friends, to accomplish. To see the avidity with which the children read and demand such writers as Father Finn, S.J., Father Spalding, S.J., Father John Talbot Smith, Charles W. Stoddard, Marion Ames Taggart, Maurice F. Egan, Marion J. Brunowe, and other standard Catholic writers, is to prove that they know what is good, and that every effort spent in this direction will bear fruit a hundredfold.
