The New Pace for Children [excerpt]
The death of President McKinley has set people to thinking as to the insidious influences that may have operated on the mind of the wretched and pitiable assassin, little more than a perverted boy; and, as a consequence, a healthy reaction has set in against the sensational newspaper. It will be well if this shall extend to all newspapers of the class. But it will be best if the country can be aroused to substitute for them decent newspapers, magazines, and books, and particularly to study carefully the kind of reading which goes to the formation of the character of children.
What boots it at one gate to make defense
And at another to let in the foe?
