It books were rightly treated when they were newly bound there would be less likelihood of their backs be ing broken afterward by rough han dling. The covers should be opened one at a time, and laid as far back as the table upon which the book Is rest ing; then gradually all the leaves, a few at the back and a few at the front of the book, should be laid upon the covers. The book will then be In con dition for ordinary wear and the cov ers will not break away if not abuse!.

A benevolent-looking i old man who sat next to him proved, however, that a mild question as well as a mild answer will turn away wrath. Just after the "sport" had In dulged himself In another violent out burst of profanity the old man be stowed upon him a gentle glance through Ms gold-rlmmed spectacles, and with the utmost gravity drawled out the Innocent inquiry: "Say, my brother, where do you preach to morrow."
