We a;prMe tbe true reason is that, as all
men repe1 Itnowie'life, ana especially
knowllje of which they only dimly per-
ceire the ne, they retcard a library as a
deposit of bott!el widona, by which they
can hardly profit indeed, bnt which they

undoubtedly is the ff-elinf of that extra

men who become by a aort of voluntary
selection attendants in libraries usually

though they rarely read, and are still more
rarely litterateurs, have a sort of worship
of htioks to which they will occasionally
Ctnftwt. They are seldom seen in Indon
except occasionally in seconlhand book
shops, but they are frequently to be met
with in country towns, srmetimes, though
not often, with an extraordinary knowl
edge of and interest in bibliography. They
do not know books, lust they know about
books: they handle thetn reverently and
they grow irritated by the ill tisase of any
book to the shaking ofl of all conventional
reticence of lantruae.
Indeed, we are not sure whether the
same feeling of respect for hooks as books
has not a great influence with the culti
vate'! also. They k now of con rse, or wou Id
know if tliev thought abont it, where the
charm of a great collwtion of books lies.
namely, its power, if well consulted, of
transforming the student's relation to any
given subject. He becomes when he has
read up a topic really read it up, that is
with an o--n mind and a keen attention as
regards tLat topic a new man, bigger,
Winer and more of a superior than he was
before, and this sometimes to a degree
which Ls startling in his own eye. The
depository or containing casket of power
like that is sure of rewpect from the man
who knows of its existence.
It is a fact which every ownerof a library
will confirm th.it the reluctance to weed
one is the greatest of all oltacls to Ita
collection. A private man who loves books,
unless exceptionally rich, is always, as he
advances in life, tormented by the difficulty
of finding room for them. They grow and
grow, and the wall space does not grow",
and the shelves do not grow eit her: and
unless he rt-sorts to the unspeakably de
testable expedient of reduplicating the
books on each shelf a device which not
only destroys the back rows, but imperils
their owner's chance of heaven, the book

being, with results in evil wishes and lan
gnage there comea a time when be is at
his wit's end.
Not one room in ten will allow of shelves
being Kt at right angles to the walls in
stead of along them, though that quadru
ples book space, and the collector, with
weary highs, either heaps books aljove each
other or leaves them in packing cases, or
in desperate emergencies puts them on the
floor. All this while if he would only
weed them there would be plenty of room,
and the opportunity of weeding is almost
We vent ure to say there are not five men
in England possessed of 3,000 books apiece
who not know perfectly well that half their
volumes are Inmlisr, )Kks which they
will never re a1 or consult or open for any
purpose whatsoever. They are the books
of foagotten periods of life, the looks of
whim, the books of abandoned studies, or,
more numerous than all, the books about
which their owner's only thought is a
wonder how the devil they ever got there;
books he can no more account for than he
could account for the foolishness of early
day dreams or for the morsels of absolute
ly useless knowledge packed away in his
He knows perfectly well the lumber

sends it, unless indeed he changes his
house; nor. if he ia rich enough to keep a
'librarian" or library clerk, will that in
