New Numbors 38-40 CONGRESS AVENUE WEST HA VEX. FAIR HAVEN. TWO FOREMEN GO. SOME ONE ANSWER Question Raised of Furnishing Fiction to Readers of Pub lic Libraries. ONE CITIZEN THINKS, NOT Reports Show That the Public Uses ; Jt'uch More Yictton Than " Other Books.. On looking over the reports of the librarians of the numerous libraries of this county this seems to be a ques tion which must sooner or later be met and answered. Why should the city spend the money of the people on what is simply entertainment for a small percentage of its population who use the library, that it may read the mass of stuff called fiction? Why should not the city build thea ters and hire actors to provide vaude ville or trashey plays for the use of the publlc? There is as much reason in such a "COFFEE COUGH" Woman Feared Consumption but Spe cialist Said Cough Came from Coffee . Quite a relief to learn your cough, which even-one said was aurely con sumption, is really caused by reflex irritation from coffee drinking Tou can quit the coffee, but con sumption is hard to "shake." A- Wis. woman coughed to hard and so much she and her friends thought sure she had consumption, but a spe cialist in lung diseases found her lungs were all right the cough came from coffee. She "-rites: "I had a very bad cough that re fused to yield to medicine After five months doctoring with home doctor end fearing consumption, I consulted ft specialist ""-ho examined my lungs thoroughly. He said thev were all right, but I must quit drinking coffee as that was prcbably the cause of it I was very nervous, also "He suggested I drink Fostum. and gave me ' no medicine, only said he -ould write to my home doctor. I came home glad in one way and sorry In another. I thought it was hard to give up coffee, for I did net care for breakfast without it "The doctor's letter miscarried and I got no medicine for 2 weeks, but I left off coffee and b?gan to use Pest um, and mv cough began to get hot ter. I steadily improved in other ways digestion got all right and I was not nervous. "A short time ago I went to a pic nic where they served only coffee and I drank some, but found my great love for it was entirely gone "I would have been glad to have proposition. The same argument will answer both questions; it would !erve to keep off the street people that had nothing else to do and in that way keep them out of mischief. In the beginning the library was of service as an educational institution and the use made of resources was along that line. What do the reports show to-day? Take the report of the Young Men's Institute here In our own town. Nine teen hundred and nineteen volumes of fiction, 56 volumes of history, 46 vol umes of essays, for the month of No vember. The librarian further reports that half of the people cannot tell who the author was of the last novel they read. The New York Times in ft late issue tells of the librarians trying the plan of giving a serious book out with every novel, but speaks of the plan as un likely to be of any value, as the li brary help are not capable of doing such work. There la no question but public li braries should be maintained for the use of reference and study. The ex pense of maintaining a library for such purposes would be much less than the money spent for useless fic tion would go : far towards adding books of permanent value. Certainly the giving of libraries In the way Mr Carney' has been doing is unwise On ton which accepted his donation (which the time was sadly in need of a pun vater service was compelled to go for three years longer, without fit drinking water and the inhabitants were obliged to pur chase spring water. It seems time to look into this matter and see whether the people's money l not being wasted in the foolish purchase of books of fiction The bookseller as a taxpayer has a right to question In this matter, his main revenue is ftom this class of books and there is no reason why peo ple who desire to amuse themselves should not be made to pav for it the same as they do when, they want to go to the theater.

This Is a symphony full of beau tiful melody. It has been analised by the great critics as embodying every human and barbaric passion; as being the apotheosis of the dance, as a bacchic feast, a village wedding; as embodying the Joy of Germany deliv ered from the French yoke. The other orehestnl number on the program is Goldmark's beautiful over ture, Sakuntala. The Tschaikovski B flat minor piano concerto, which Miss Katherine Good son will play to-morrow evening is the very work that this now noted pianist played in Vienna when she made hlr debut at one of the. private concerts given by her teacher, Leschetizki, In Vienna during her student diys.
