eral occasions to assassinate the young
Knn. anil his escapes from injury have
led In the popular belief that he lias a
chin rued life, another fact thai contrib
utes to hi unusual popularity.
It has been sal.) of him that Spain's
ureal llkliin for Its KIhk has largely
intllieiiceil the people In beini; satisfied
with their present form of novcrninoiit.
There Is a pronounced belief that when
Spain's monnrchv falls It will not be
Alfonso, but nun nf Ills succnssius, who
will kd down in the crash.
In thoiiKlil and action Alfono has
been a republican rather than n royal
ist and tt Is because ho Is the most
democratic ruler that the country hits
ever had that the hand of thoe who
would like lo see Spain a lepubllc lme
been stayed.
One of Alfonso's most recent acts,
which demonstrates the character of
the man, was his proposal a few months
itKo to visit the I'lllted Stales next enr
with the Idea. It Is understood, of com
batlnK the notion that there Is any
hard feellm? between tho I'nlted States
and Spain because of the nil pleasant no as
over t'tib.i bark In IS'.iS. The KlnK
lies been urKltiK his Ministers to per
mit him to make the trip and a hope
exists In the hearts of Americans that
Alfonso will have his own way about it
Alfonso lias had an unconventional
way of dolnp thlnnn. oven to his selec
tion of a Queen In l'rlncrss Una of
HattenberK. irrnndduiiKliter of Queen
Victoria, whom he married In liiOC. This
was nnit of the few royal marriages
for love, another reason for hi popu
larity wllh the people.
Alfonso had been proclaimed King
only elKht montliH when In January,
IU03, he wan shot at by a man as lm
was rldlnif home from church with
the Duke of Sotomayor. The would bo

Why Doesn't Someone Invent
a New Filing Method?"
How often have you heard that question ? How
often have you asked it yourself?
Library Bureau has answered it.
Library Bureau has invented a new filing method
one that combines the advantages of the
numeric and alphabetic methods by giving a
direct alphabetical reference and, at the same
time, providing a positive numerical check on
misfiling. This new filing method is wonderfully
simple. It is called
The L. B.
Automatic Index
Letters and folders are filed by number, checked by name ;
or filed by name, checked by number. No Index Is necessary.
It pays for Itself in the space it saves. It permits of quicker
work. The cost of operation is very small. Install it and
your filing clerk will never wish to change it.
Some of the most progressive business houses in the country
have adopted the "L. B. Automatic Index."
