Bucks Biographies

Excerpt from Bucks Biographies The revival of pageants, and their success, has shown us how interesting local history may be made if the events connected with a town or county are illustrated in a series of striking scenes. N 0 written words can arrest the attention of children as do these living pictures, but the pageants give us a hint that a set of historical Vignettes and the lives of a few famous men and women may be more interesting than a connected history condensed within the limits of a school reading-book. The recent remarkable progress in the Schools of the county, in Nature study and drawing from Nature, have made the Bucks child well acquainted with the trees, owers, and birds Of the neighbourhood, with the conditions of vegetable growth in the educational school-garden, and with the geography of the parish. It is desirable that this Spirit of observation and of original research which appeals to every intelligent child, should be extended to the human interests of the com munity past and present. Both the domestic and church architecture of Bucks are very interesting; there are Jacobean manor-houses, now usually farm-houses, and admirable specimens Of Queen Anne and Georgian houses in the market towns; while the beautiful Old cottages in the Villages repay attention at least as much as the homes Of the birds and the spiders.
