Happy Hours A Weekly Paper for Young Folks Vol. 14 No. 8 Feb. 19, 1899

Regular price $10.00

Happy Hours A Weekly Paper for Young Folks and Older Ones with Young Hearts Vol. 14 No. 8 Feb. 19, 1899 is a typical news sheet of the times providing stories, poetry and moral values for young people.

It is a single sheet of newsprint, front and back, measuring 21 inches by 14 1/2 inches, folded to make four pages 10 1/2 inches by 14 1/2 inches

It was published and edited by David C. Cook of Elgin, Illinois and Chicago who started his publishing ventures in 1875 and built a career "in non profit disciplinship resources promotion" and may still exist but not by publishing Happy Hours.

The little poem is by Margaret Sangster (1838-1912), a popular poet of the time. The pictures enhance the stories.

This copy of Happy Hours is browned with age and getting to be a bit fragile with tears beginning at some folds.  It was owned by a cousin of my father, Agnes Clarke, whose name appears in pencil on the first page. She was probably ten or eleven years old at the time and lived her life in Cornish, Maine.
