HAD THB ANCIENTS CHEAP
Mn. S. E. Duinon rcmmks, In liis
lectin c on Copyright, Hint it is a
very common error to suppose Unit
the nttcicnt world was very hndly
supplied with hooks to transfer to
the times of the Greeks, Romans
and Egyptian civilization, the dnik
nens and dearth of mcdiieval Euroi)c.
The fact is, that in those days every
gcutlcmnn's homo had Hs library,
and every city had Ha public library.
In every wealthy household was a
servant to read aloud, and another
to copy books. In those days' a
publisher or bookseller kept n staff
of skilled slaves. "When a book was.
to be published, one of these read
and the others wrote, and in. that
manner, by means of cheap slave
labor, large editions ef books were
published. Alliens, Ciuri's friend,
kept a large number1 of slaves trans
fecribing, and made a great deal of
money by the sale of books so manu
factured. The literary activity of
the countries round the Mediterran
ean was very great,
estimate it. Ilora;
for us the names 1
in whose shops l
and wc under-
used to lounge.
Maitial refers a shJi
fibby fellow called
Lupcrcus (who wanted to borrow
his epigrams) to his bookseller Atrcc
tus. lie tells him the shop is " op
posite the former of Caesar, and
placards arc posted inside giving the
names of poets," evidently as is the
custom of booksellers to this day.
The price of the volume the first
look of Ins epigrams he says is live
denarii, equivalent to three shill
ings and sixpence sterling Now,
this first book contains one hundred
and nineteen epigrams, or over seven
hundred verses. It appears else
where that cheaper copies were pro
vided. Martial refers to copies well
rubbed with pumice and adorned
with purple. The . cheaper copies
could be had at half that price, but
this was in the best style. So that
if we compare the pi ice with the
published prices in England of
" Maud," oi 'iry of the small origi
nal volumes uf Tennyson's poems,
which wcic issued at live or six
shillings, the Roman publisher docs
not seem to be much dearer than the
English one. Communicated.
As announced, the Hawaiian Ama
teur Minstrels gave an entertainment
in the Music-IIall. The house was
a bumper one, there being over 300
taken in casli at the door. Previous
to the concert Mi. Dodd sent the
'bus round with thc-band which seem
ed to draw people out of the ground.

Vi: have received a copy of the

lo bo rather a late date to circulate,

after its appearance, but wc suppose
thai the proverb, "belter laic than

The report shows much that is
cheering in the progress of the good

things have to be done yet, bolli

The following cxliact is from a
Caito paper: "The Bedouins wero
greatly pu.Icd by the garb of the
Highlanders, who, they caino to the
conclusion, were not soldiers, but
thoi wives of tho soldier?. Distanco
of course encouraged this delusion,
as bare legs wero obviously more
discernible than tho men's faces,
covered as they wcic with veils.
Tho . Bedouins noticed that tho
soldiers' women camped by them
selves, and they resolved to' go
down and spoil the infidel soldiers
of their wives; and a body of them
actually went, with a lcsult which
must have added to the wonderment
of both, forllie liiitish harem tinned
out with lilllo and bayonet and

amorous Bedouins bit tho dust.

were not again attacked by Arab
