Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 35, June 29th, 1880, by Various
Harper's Young People is an illustrated weekly publication for children that includes short stories, tales from history, natural history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 35th issue of the serial was published on June 29th, 1880. In this issue, "The Moral Pirates" battle nature and their dinner in the fifth part of their story, a young man tries his hand at piano tuning with off-key results in "Miss Pamela Plumstone's Piano", and city girl Julie sets off on a secret quest to locate the characters of Catskill folklore in the continuation of "Miss Van Winkle's Nap". Other highlights of this issue include the story of a dare that goes rather hairy in "Mr. Martin's Scalp"; the saga of "How the Little Smiths Got Their Fourth-of-July Money" by preparing for a patriotic family contest; and a lesson in the anatomy of flowers to find out "How Do They Grow?". This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
