SUNDAY SCHOOL LIBRARIES.
Hany or fhm Boaka ma I molt ta tb &t
'telUseaea of Yomcc People,
Edward W. Bok has been making
careful and comprehensive examination
cf Snnday school libraries, and in The
Ladies Home Journal he confesses him
eeli disgusted with tlie literature thus
placed in the hands of our boys and
girls." A less complete invrsstigation,
Mr. Bck says, wonld not hare made it
I losnble for him to believe that the li
braries of onr Snnday scliools were
stocked with such pilns of rubbish
"vriahy washy literature," as he terms
it. -He quotes th titles and sires the
themes of a number of books he obtained
from Sunday sehool libraries, and these
seem to completely warrant his cnnclu
sious. 'Such books," lie contends, "are
an insult to the intelligence of the
yocng people and have a pernicious in
fluence. Instead of being healthy books
tbey are decidedly unhealthy in tone
and teaching. Surely we ore cultivating
a ' dangerous taste for reading in the
young when we feed them on such rub
bish." Mr. Bok unhesitatingly lays a part of
the blame upon the publication boards
and societies, which are influenced by
a denominational spirit that narrows
their choice of books. Then, again, it is
shown that the most mediocre sort of
"talent" in employed to write these
books, and that beggarly prices less
than $30 per book aro paid. A share
of responsibility, Mr. Bok asserts, rests
upon the men who purchase Sunday
school libarries, who, as is most fre
quently the case, ere not qualified for
the task and whose object is to secure a
library as cheap as possible, Mr. Bok
warmly nrges that the selection of Sun
day school books be left to women, who
"instinctively know and feel the kind
of a book which a boy or girl will read
and enjoy." He insists that women
should be given carte blanche to moke
the selections so far as the prescribed
amount of money will go. "A hundred
good books, " Mr. Bok concludes, "are
far better than 500 books of indifferent
interest," which are bought simply be
cause they are cheap. "A Sunday school
library cannot be created in a day, and
no discouragement should be felt if the
financial means of the church are con
tracted and necessitate the purchase of
only a few books at a time."-
Helptesa aa to Bread.
Captain Bliss was like all seamen, a
strict disciplinarian, and bis crew re
spected him beyond measure. Not one
of them would have dreamed of inter
preting a command otherwise than ac
cording to the strict letter of the law.
Things must be done shipshape under
One day, while the ship was in a cer
tain port, the captain gave a dinner to
some town acquaintances, and as the
resources of the ship wero not great
some of the sailors were deputed to wait
on the table to re-enforce the insufficient
number of stewards.
As these men were not used to such
work each one was told exactly what
service would fall to bis share.
The hour came, and the dinner went
merrily on. Presently, however, one of
the ladies wanted a niece of bread.
There was none very near her, and the
uneiy disciplined stewards seemed to be
quite oblivious to her need. She turned
her head and epoke very softly to the
man at her elbow.
"Bread, please," she said.
He looked regretfully at the bread
and then at her. It was evident that he
would fain have helped her if it had
been in his power. He saluted in fine
naval style. - - .
"Can't do it, ma'am," said he. "I'm
told off for taters." London Tele
graph. Lord Kelson's Spirit.
Captain Alfred T. Mohan writes an
account cf "Nelson In the Battle of
Copenhagen" for The Century. Captain
Mahan quotes the following from the
account of the engagement written by
Colonel Stewart of the British forces:
"Lord Nelson was at this time, as he
had been during the whole action, walk
ing the starboard side of the quarter
deck, sometimes much animated and at
others heroically fine in his observa
tions. A shot through the mainmast
knocked a few splinters about us. Ee
observed to me with a smile, 'It is warm
work, and this day may be, the last to
any cf us at a moment, and then, stop
ping short at tho gangway, he used an
expression never to be erased from my
memory and said with emotion, 'But,
mark you,' I would not be elsewhere for
thousands." With this spirit may be
compared his rebuke some days after the
battle to a lieutenant, who during the
action had made a hopeless report about
the grounded ships, "At such a moment
the delivery of anything like a despond
ing opinion, unasked, was highly repre
hensible and deserved much more cen
sure than Captain Foley gave you."
Brain Blgtr Thma Man'a.
According to Professor Max Weber of
Amsterdam, the only animals which
surpass man in the absolute weight of
their brains are elephants and whales,
but there are several that rank ahead
cf him in the ratio of the brain weight
to tho total weight of the body. All f
these, however, are comparatively small
animals. Among them are many mon
keys and certain members of the squir
rel and mouse families. No animal of
greater bodily size than man has a brain
which is relatively as large as his. Up

General Schuyler Hamilton gave some
interesting incidents from the life of his
grandfather tnd described a meeting be
tween Aaron Burr end Mrs. Hamilton,
dacghter-ic-lawcf Alexander Hamilton
and the niotbor of the speaker, in 1830.
"As Colonel Burr entered the room, " he
said, "my mother, in extreme agitation,
seemed abcut to faint. Colonel Burr,
noticing thid, bat not knowinp her, im
mediately went to the sideboard, peered
ont a gkss cf wttcr and advanced to
hand it to her. It was all done most
naturally, gracefully aud courteously.
My mother shock her head and mur
mured, 'I am the daughter of Alexander
Hamilton.' Without a word. Colonel
Burr placed tho glass of water on the
sideboard, bowed in silence to the
