oupersuuou, ranaticism, whichever or
whatever you ploase to call it, a belief In a
direct agency of superior powers, in certain
extraordinary or singular events, or in omens
and prognostics, is an inherited trait, peculiar
to every child of Adam. Even In this en-
lighted century of steam cars, steamships,
telephones, telegraph and a thousand and one
other devices originated for man's comfort
and prosperity, a tinge of superstition courses
through the blood of the most intellectual.
It is almost impossible to find any one, if one
will ocknowledgo it, but has some "sign" or
vague act in which thuy religiously and
truthfully believe. This marked feature or
common poculiurity is nowhere found to
strongly prevailing as in the minds of mem
bers of the fire deitartnient. and in mention
Ing this particular culling we speak compre
hensively, Including every member of the
4,000 departments of this country and like
organizations the world over.
For tbeso fearless meu, the expression "they
carry their lives in their bands" might have
been originated. To ascertain if possible to
what extent this feat ure prevailed in our own
dopartmout a Globe reporter was detailed to
visit the suveral houses and interview the
TOUCH I SO TIIE NEORO'9 HAXD.
The simplest and probably the oldest pre
tended omen of good luck is the finding and
picking up of a pin. The oddest and newest
is the rubbing up Against or touching the
nana or a colored man. Tnis simple procesB

ate you into tho good will and graces of the
"god of luck," and through the simple me
dium of a male colored gentleman your lot
can lorever ie tn:ulo a lucky, and conse
quently a happy and enviable one. The engi
neer of euglne company No. 3 would in all
probability rather rofrain from eating for a
whole month, resign from the work which he
loves, anything in fact, than be summoned to
a fire with the guilty conscience of not having
coino in uirect contact with a darky shortly
previous, no ana ooen known to follow
son or Africa" three blocks In a pitiless
aownpour or rain ror tho satisfaction of hit
ting his band as ho passed him. When a col
ored man comes into the engine house this
nreman would as soon renounce his birth
right as to permit that darky to leave the
nouse Dei ore counting the buttons on his coat,
and woe betide that fireman's peace of mind
if the number huppens to bo "fatal thirteen."
One of tho call men of No. 7 wooes tho "god
of luck" by dropping a penny down the back
of his neck and watching which pants leg It
comes out of.
A former tnenilter of No. C used to count 16
and then watch the tail of the hose horse; if
it went to the right, the man was happy; if
to the left ho always found some pretext to
skip the next flro and thereby save his life.
A member of No. 1 always takes a rainy
day to discover his destiny, and tho first two
consecutive pair of black hose that he sees
under feminine skirts controls Lis fute.
A brave member of No. 2 Invariably
soothes his peace of mind by crawling into
his bed from the foot and rooting up between
the clothes like a hedgo hog, and never will
he allow the top layer of the hoso ou the reel
to remain thirteen, for that means poor luck

everlasting ruin by a dutiful member of the

A DOG, Or COURSE.
Among the many other signs and symbols
connected with this superstitious belief none
are more prominent than the so called
"mascots," which may consist of almost any
thing from a white elephant to a suspender
button. The hook and ludder company are
possessors of a real, live, genuine "mascot" In
the form of a hnndsomo bull terrier, named
Isabelle, or "Bell," as she is better known and
loved by the department at largo. Upon
Bell's small but well developed shoulders
rests the destiny of the company, and to cay
that she well cares for her charge is saying
little. Seldom if ever does the sonorous voice
of the great fire bell tell the waking or sleep
ing citizens of Hartford that the red destruc
tive fire fiend is abroad, but what this faith
ful four footed mascot is at her post of duty,
and faster than her four white feet strike the
pavement would the hearts of tho truck boys
flutter with dread if her form was not seen
through tho dusk at her place in front of the
noblo black and gray which draw the great
new aerial truck.
The truck was colled to Box 31 for a small
and unimportant fire. The rain, which had
continued all day, was coming down in tor
rents; the mud was bub deep, and the great
eighty-hundred truck was stalled on Front
street. "Bell," owing to domestic duties
which at that time wero taking up her undi
vided attention, was absent; had she been
- there the truck would have passed over the
mud like a ball over a waxed floor. Last sum
mer the truck came into collision with pro
peller no. 4, on Asyium street, "tteu" was
absent then, owing this time to her inability
to slide down tho pole from tho bunk room.
These instances are only two of many which
pace forbids us to relate.
There are many more peculiarities in con
nection with .this subject, but the most con
spicuous is found in connection with our de
partment, but outside of it. Fires as a fact
occur in successions of throe at a time, and
when one has occurred the remark is fre
quently and invariably heard, "Well, I won
der when well have the second one." The
firemen also as a r olo believe in this, and after
a run are prepared for the second and third.
Another strange coincidence is the fact In re
gard to Saturday night or Sunday runs.
Months, sometimes a year, will elapse before
a fir will occur on these special days, and
then without regard to time fires will rage on
several Saturdays or Sundays consecutively.
Whether there really is anything in super
stition or fanaticism, whatever you please to
call it, we dare not say, but will echo with
Job, "It's queer, very queer." Hartford
It Tempt Them to Steal.
It may look queer, but it is true, that the
stores that have large exhibitions In their
how windows do more toward educating
young boys to steal than anything else. The
reason of this is that large crowds, mostly
women, gather about the windows to look at
the displays. Well, a young gamin comes
along and tees a pocket book protruding out
of a woman's pocket and the temptation is
ao great that be sneaks up behind her and
steals the wallet May be this is his first

Pattl in Dublin.
One of the finest publio buildings in Dub
lin is without doubt the new Leinster hall. I
chanced to be paying a visit to the city when
this splendid concert hall was opened for the
first time, and shall not easily forget the ex
citement created by the event. All the
beauty and fashion of the place mustered in
brave numbers to do honor to the occasion,
and murmurs of enthusiastic approval were
heard on all sides when the heavy curtains
were thrown back and the fine coup d oeuil of
the ball presented. Madame Adelina Pattl
was the bright particular star of the evening,
and appeared for the first time after ten
years' absence, to be greeted with an over
whelming cordiality by the faithful Dub-
liners, who, for the reason that she is of
Italian parentage, born on Spanish soil and
educated in America, claim her, one and all.

people watching the czar and his magnificent
retinuo as they passed on their way to the

Suddenly en anarchist or nihilist In the
crowd pulled a gun, and, poking the muzzle
under the arm of a man in front of him,
blazed away at the czar.
"Brock" McVickar was the man in front of

grabbed him, and, despite his desperate strug
gles to get away and lose his identity in the
crowd, hung on until the officers arrived and
hurried the man to prison.
The czar inquired who had stopped the
murderous nihilist. He was told that the in
dividual was "Brock" McVickar, of Chicago.
He sent for him, and "Brock" brushed up a
littlo and went The czar thanked "Brock'
for the service he had rendered and decorated
him with various orders as a reward.

were taken from that most famous of cradle
books, "The Nuremberg Chronicle" (1403) :
"Forty thousand books belonging to the
most famous library in tho world wero once
burnt up in Egypt Ancient writers praise
the zeal there evinced in collecting books.
Aristotle bequeathed both his library and his
school (Lyceum) to Theopbrostus. And he
(Aristotle) was the first (as Strabo opines) who
collected books and instructed the Egyptian
kings how to arrange their libraries. Ttaeo-
phrastus thereafter left his library to Kelous.
Neleus carried it to Scepsis (a city in Mysia),
where it came into the hands of ignorant
men, who kept the books shut up and in the
worst disorder. Ptolemseus Philadelphus
also collected a large number of books. And
as Seneca notes, 460,000 volumes, a most
beautiful monument of royal opulence, were
consumed by fire in Alexandria. Livy says
that this library had bean the ornament
and object of care to the illustrious
kings. In truth, it was uot so, but
rather a kind of studious luxury; indeed, not
studious even, to speak more correctly, be
cause they accumulated books, not for study,
but for the sake of display, just as books to
many ignorant and servile collectors are not
Instruments for study, but only a sort of
(showy) furniture in their dining halls."
The destruction of tho library is described
by Abulfaragius: "John the Grammarian,
famous peripatetic philosopher, being in
Alexandria and in high favor with Amru, the
conqueror or the city, begged that be would
give him the royal library. Amru told him
that it was not in his power to grant such a
request, but promised to write to the caliph
for his consent Omar is said to have replied
that if those books contained the same doc
trino as the Eoran they could bo of no use,
since the Koran contained all necessary
truths; Dut it tney contained anything con
trary to that book they ought to be de
stroyed; and, therefore, whatever their con
tents were, be ordered them to be burned.
Pursuant to this order, they were distributed
among the public baths, of which there -was
a large number in the city, where for six
months they served to supply the fires."
