LITERATURE FOR ALL MOODS
That Is What Librarians Are Expected
to Select for Their Exacting
Infinite are the requirements and
profound the judgment of librarians.
The other day a little girl who doos
the family marketing rushed into a
branch library with the announce
ment that the sewing society was go
ing to meet at her mother's house that
afternoon and wouldn't the librarian
please send around a book suitable
for the elocutionists of the circle to
read aloud while the others worked
The young woman appealed to sent
the sequel to a particularly charming
story that had beguiled the tedium of
that same circle on a previous after
noon. In a short while the little girl
returned the book.
"Ma says this ain't the kind of a
story they need today," she said.
"They ain't workin' on baby clothes
and shirtwaists today. They're darn
in' men's socks and mendin' shirts,
and they want something suitable."
There was a consultation of librar
ians. Just what kind of literature
would fit the mental attitude of women
engaged in darning socks and mend
ing shirts was a question hitherto un
considered. They decided on a wo
man's rights pamphlet called "The
Eternal Warfare." Apparently it
suited, for the child did not bring it
TWENTY WORDS IN THE LEAD
Cleveland Lawyer's New Stenographer
Kept Well Ahead of Him When
A Cleveland corporation lawyer has
a new stenographerthe second new
one in a week. Strange to say, he
didn't discharge the first one because
she was incompetent, but because
she was too good. Let him tell it.
"This girl came to me well recom

letter, I found her extremely rapid
and accurate. So I employed her on
the spot. She fell right in with the
work, and I decided that I had found

gave me a shock.

The boy's appetite Is often the

have such an appetite take Chamber

Cave of Bones.
An extraordinary "bone cave" may
be seen in the island of Teneriffe.
It is situated near the summit of a
lofty sea cliff near Orotava, close to
the small plain of Le Paz, where
peace was finally made between
the conquering Spaniards and
Guanches, the original inhabitants ol
Here the Guanches made their last
stand, and the cave formed a shelter
for the small remnant left of the
tribesmen after the Spanish had fin
ished with them. In former times
the place had evidently been a burial
ground of the Guanches, and when
first discovered mummies were found
in it now, however, only a large pile
of bones remains. Access is obtained
'by descending a rope through a hole
dug in the roof, but the original oc
cupants must have had a difficult and
dangerouB scramble down the face
of the almost perpendicular cliff to
the natural entrance.

an old Irishman and his mate were
set on to replace a floor in a little

of the business. They had just fin

when the old man bethought himself
that a floor ought to be level.

One That He Forgot.
Two black-faced minstrels were
giving an entertainment on the sands
of a certain seaside holiday resort
recently. While one of them was
telling funny stories about the hum
ors of boarding house landladies, the
other went among the crowd making
a collection. He at length went up
a stern looking woman, who
promptly snatched the tambourine
from his hand and poured the con
tents into her lap. As she returned
the empty tambourine to the aston

Odd Superstitions That Are Prevalent
Among the Inhabitants of Euro
In Spain the wedding is spoiled if
of the guests appears entirely in
black or if the bride looks into a mir

are fastened in her headdresB
When a person's hair ends split it is
taken by the superstitious for a sign
that she is either a witch or has been
bewitched. AS blond hair splits more
readily than dark hair, all witches,
sprites and sorcercesses have blond or
red hair, according to popular belief.
Likewise, according to the standard of
On the marriage eve there is often
much good natured rivalry between
the groom and the bride in the Slav
countries as to who shall blow out the
candle, for the person who does will
be "first to die." It is impossible to
trace the origin of this superstition,
yet it prevails in aristocratic society
as well as in the peasant's hut, even
as like this, that "to insure the life
and health of the children" the wom
en must occupy the right side of the
bed In addition, she must not smoke
pefore her forty-fifth year.
