Source text (please read only from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/29043Harper'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 38th issue of the serial was published on July 20th, 1880. In this issue, "The Moral Pirates" decide to sail at night to avoid the day's heat and have a terrifying encounter in the darkness in the eighth part of their story; little Dot Calliper finds she's not the only creature picking blueberries on the mountainside in "The Biggest Blackberry Picker"; and, Dora and Gil Norman take an unexpected hay ride in "How Gil Played Ventriloquist". Other highlights of this issue include a how-it's-made-style description of pearls in "Pearls -- Real and Imitation"; a natural history of amazing "Beetles" from around the world; and, the second part in "The Story of the American Navy" which describes some of the naval battles of the Revolutionary War. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
