BELIEFS OF FIREMEN
SUPERSTITIONS OF THE BOY8 WHO
' RUN WITH THE MACHINE..
How They Scheme to Win the Smile of
the Goddesa of Fortune M ascota Large
and Bmall Power of the Black Man's
Touch When They Expect Fires.
Superstition, fanaticism, whichever or
whatever you ploa.se 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, telograjh 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 imotible to find any one, if one
. will acknowledge it, but has some "sign" or
vague act in which tbuy religiously and
truthfully believe. ThLi marked feature or
common peculiarity is nowhere found so
strongly prevailing as in the minds of mem
burs of the lire department, and in mention
ing this particular culling we speak compre
hensively, including every member of the
4,000 departments of thin country aud like
organizations the world over.
For theso fearless men, the expression "they
carry their lives in their hands" might have
been origlnn tod. To ascertain If possible to
what extent this feature prevailed in our own
dopartneut a Olnbu reporter was detailed to
visit the Miveral iiounes and interview the
TOLVII1SO TIIE NEGRO'S RAND.
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 np against or touching the
hand of a colored man. This simple process
is warranted by "Iwlievors" to forever initi
ate you into tlio good will and graces of the
"god of luck," and through the simple me
dium of a male colored gentleman your lot
can forever le made a lucky, and conse
quently a happy and enviable one. The engi
neer of engine company No. 3 would in all
probability ruther 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
como in direct contact with a darky shortly
previous. Ho has been known to follow a
"son of Africa" three blocks in a pitiless
downpour of rain for tho satisfaction of hit
ting his hand as ho poxsed him. When a col
ored man comes into tho engine house this
fireman would as soon renounce his birth
right as to permit that darky to leave the
house before couuting the buttons on his coat,
and woe betide that fireman's peace of mind
if the number happens to be "fatal thirteen."
One of tho call men of No. 7 wooes tho "god
of luck" by dropping a peuny down the back
of his neck and watching which pants leg it
comes out of.
A former member of No. C used to count 16
and then watch the tail of the hose horse; if
it went to tho right, tho man was happy; if
to the left he always found some pretext to
skip the next firo and thereby save his life.
A member of No. 1 always takes a rainv
day to discover his destiny, and tho first two
consecutive pair of black hose that he sees
under feminino skirts controls his fute.
A brave member of No. 2 Invariably
soothes his peace of mind by crawling into
his bed from tho 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

A DOG, OF COURSE.
Among the many other sigus and symbols
connected with this superstitious belief none
are more promineut than the so called
"mascots," which may consist of almost any
thing from a white elephant to a suspender
button. Tho hxk and ladder company are
possessors of a real, live, genuine "mascot" In
tho form of a hnndsomo bull terrier, named
Isabelle, or "Bell," as she is better known and
loved by tho department at large. Upon
Bell's small but well developed shoulders
rests the destiuy of the company, and to say
that she well cares for her charge is saying
little. Seldom if ever does tho sonorous voice
of the great fire bell tell the waking or sleep
ing citizens of Hartford that the red destruc
tive firo 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 the truck boys
flutter with dread if her form was not seen
through tho dusk at her place in front of the
noble black and gray which draw the great
nfcW aerial truck.
The truck was called 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 hub deep, and the great
eighty-hundred track was stalled on Front
street. "Bell," owing to domestic duties
which at that time were 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 Asylum street "Bell" was
absent then, owiug this time to her inability
to slide down the 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 three at a time, and
when one has occurred the remark la fre
quently and invariably heard, "Well, I won
der when well have tho second one." The
firemen also as a rulo behove, in tills, and after
a run ore prepared for the second and third.
Another strange coincidence is the fact In re
gard to Baturday niut or Sunday runs.
Mouths, sometimes a year, will elapse before
a fire will occur on these Rjiecial days, and
then without regard to time Urea 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 Tempts 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 sees a pocket book protruding out
of a woman's pocket, and the temptation is
so great that he sneaks up behind her and

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'eeuil of
the hall presented. Madame Adelina Patti
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,
as an Irishwoman. Every phrase of her de
livery was interrupted with ill suppremed
applause, and at the conclusion of her ren
dering of the mad scene of "Lucia" she was
called upon to receive such a hurricane of
bravos and hand clapping that the now build

all I knew. Subsequently the fair songstress

The following is the translation of the
Latin text accompanying tho quaint cut
which served as frontispieco in The Book
Lover. The cut and text, both in fac-simile,
were taken from that most famous of cradle
books, "Tho Nuremberg Chronicle" (MSB):
"Forty thousand books belonging to the
most famous library in tho world wero once
burnt up In Egypt Ancient writers praise
the seal there evinced in collecting books.
Aristotle bequeathed both his Library and his
school (Lyceum) to Theophrostua. And he
(Aristotle) was the first (as Strabo opines) who
collected books and instructed the Egyptian
kings how to arrange their libraries. Theo
phrastus thereafter left his library to Nelous.
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 tho
worst disorder. Ptolonueus 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 been the ornament
and object of care to the illustrious
kings. In truth, it was not so, but
rather a kind of studious luxury; indeed, not
studious even, to speak more correctly, be
cause they accumulated books, not for study.

many ignorant and servile collectors are not
Instruments for study, but only a sort of

The destruction of the library is described
by Abulfaragius: "John the Grammarian, a
famous peripatetic philosopher, being in
Alexandria and In high favor with Aniru, the
conqueror of 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 be of no use,
since tne ivoran contained all necessary
iruuis; nut tr tney contained anything con
trary to that book they ought to bo de
stroyed; and, therefore, whatever their con
tents were, he ordered them to be burned.
Pursuant to this order, they were distributed
among the publio baths, of which there -was
a large number in the city, where for six
months tbey served to supply the fires."
