to destroy books. Of comae books ara
not as cxpensrve or as hard to get now
as they were a quarter of a century ago,
but all the same they are too valuable
to waste or throw away.
Children should be taught how best
to take care of books and ought never
to bo permitted to throw or bang them
about or tear them in pieces. They
should be encouraged to accumulate
volumes, and to do this must have a
place in which to keep them. Good,
plain bookshelves cost bat little, and
every child should have a set
In one well ordered household there
are five youngsters, between the ages of
6 and IS years. Each child has a book
case, one of the ordinary, plain sort
that coat $4 or 95. There are curtain
made from the skirts of wornout dresses
or of paper muslin, for the family has
but little or this world's goods to use,
and every dollar, even every cent, has
to be counted. But there is in this
household a spirit of consideration that
will not allow interference with private
property, and each member is expected
to take care of tats or her own
sions, to be responsible for them and to
exercise absolute control and ownership
over tnero. Especially is it the case
with books and toys. These are borrow
ed and loaned only with the owner's
consent New books are carefully cov
ered and marked with the owner's
name, not only on the cover, but also
across the first page of the story or read
ing matter. Names on the flyleaf may
be obliterated or torn off, but when
placed across the beginning of the sub

It is a carious reflection that

ones of the earth. "Such great divinity

venture to assert their independence or

bad only recently been finished.
Alas for the credulity of the human

foundations of the building had been

doubt, congratulated himself on that
uninterrupted view of tbe country which
be bad had before, be was startled to
find that an increased army of builders
arrived to augment tbe number of those
who bad been employed.
Oddly enough also, a huge Quantity
of bricks and mortar appeared on tbe

If tha various Grand Army posts of
tbe country were disposed to take ad
vantage of an offer made at tbe last
sion of congress, they might materially
increase the warlike spirit supposed to
pervade every patriotic family, says tbe
Washington Post The offer was to sup
ply warlike implements, which, if they
have outlived their usefulness, will
serve aa ornaments for post headquar
ters and might inspire tbe rising gener
ation with much patriotic fervor. This
could be accomplished by accepting the
tender of several hundred abandoned
cannon and shot and shell which con
gress has decided to give to any Grand
Army post that may apply for them
and which are now lying useless and
neglected at the navy yards.
These cannon are mostly old style
models of engines of war, which might
have been considered Just tbe proper
thing SO years or more ago, but which,
with the march of progress and tbe ad
vanoe of invention, have been placed
upon the retired list Their places have
been filled by guns and munitions of
war of a more improved type, and as tbe
abandoned articles are valuable only as
old metal the government decided that
it could put them to no better purpose
than to give them to the veterans of tbe
late war, who fought on tbe Union side
with these same guns.
But it is surprising to count np just
how few posts of the immense Grand
Army have taken advantage of this of
fer. Since the passage of the Joint reso
lution last winter the records in the of
fice of tbe secretary of the navy, where
such applications have to be filed, show
less than 100 from tbe entire country.
There are still guns on baud for about
700 mare posts, yet strangely enough.
tbe Grand Army has made no effort to
provide itself- with an armament
which, although it would be of little
service in time of war, ia valuable front
an artistic standpoint in time of peace.
