JaruenU. I'.laino rofu. tho ai'l of a ntonog
ra'lieriri writing liis book on the political Lia
U.ry of the past twenty years. Th fact of tha
mat tor is, Jiltino can write fast as ha can
(Jietate. A rhort-haml writer only bother
tun. As noon ail he gols ouo in front of him
his tliouKhts aro at croHs-purpobo-i, and coiu
position is hIow ami laborious. I had pcraoual
exj'cricneo of thin fact during tho campaign of
17H. 1 waa tl.cu on tho local utaff of ThaChl
eaio Times. A Kpurioui interview with
niaiue had hocu printed iu that paper. It ridi
cule i his views to t inrvMouiiij; extent. It pr.t

"you know how Hhaniefully 1 was mitoepre
Honted in your pjiar. i must tlycliuo to bo in

I ansuroil Mr. Piaino that the 'iinn.-s
was doairous of laying h: viawa
of the political ui. nation Cor
rectly l eforo tho country, and that anything hs
mijtot chiiodu to say would be Kiveu in hid o

""Well, i-iitiio to Mr. IJurrows' house in Kalama
zoo, to-m ;T-ow morning, and I will aeo what I
can do "or you. " I wad on hand at 11 o'clock
tho next morning. Mr. blaino was shaking
hands with a crowd of citizens. "Coin this
way," said he, as soon as he had disposed of
this busiuesH. Wre went into Mr. Burrows' li
brary. "Now," said he. "1 have told you I am
never interviewed. I tlo not want to be inter
viewed. You want an articlo, do you not" I
told him I would prefer an interview, even if
he asked as well aa answered the questions
himself. 'Do you write short-hand?" ha
asked "Yes," I replied. "Well," ho continued,
"1 will noon sou whether yon writa fast Wa
have soma quick stenrrraphera iu Washing
ton." I made sure he was going to fire one of
his impetuous speeches at mo, and got ready
half a dozen poneils. "Xow, said he, "you
must take down every word I say, and promise
to print it without changing a word. 1 am nok
going to give you a formal interview; I will re
late a conversation hetwe-ou some of these ga.i
tlempii and myself on the cars. "I oon
found out tlm're was no range for alarm
as to my ability to 't ko him down.'
it took bim fifk-eti "minutes to shape, an intro
duction of about a dozen hues. I was with
him iwo hours. Ho would form a sentence, ko
over it once or t a ice, and then curefuily re
model it. lietwetu sentences he would ply
me with queatious about almost everything un
der the sun. He be;ama well acquainted wi.h
my career up to dm, and knew my views on a
variety of subjects, from iuterviowinr to
astronomy. Ho" would pause in hia qu stloas
to dictate another soiitem'e, aud thon go at ma

thought running on tho subject iu hand.
Winlo not in orthodox form, the iiiter.-it.-w w s

on the journey from Nile to Kalamazoo. Blaine,
of course, waa the principal talker, and ho
gave hie views on the qnes ion of tho day wi'h
great freedom. The article wis suppoied to
be wormed out of one of tho party by tho re
porter. On tho platform J.laine speaks four
columns an hour. Yet, in two hours, he only
composed, with the ski of a stcnogr-.ipher, ona
column of The Chicago Times Hia book re

Let any one who doubts apeu J au hour ia
ttudying the habits of the tiniest brooklet,
which are in miniature the habits of the Mis
sissippi. Call the great ilver a mile wido ba
twee . levees, and tha brook a foot wide from
bank to bank. A confining levee, or embank
ment, ten. feet high along the river would ba
represented proportionately in the casa of the
brook by one less than half an inch high. How
much, think you, would the brook be re
strained by a-.ich a barrier after a sudden thun
der shower in the Bummer or a
prolonged rain? Tha United Btatos govern
ment can do it, of course t It can do anything!
and tha mere building of a continuous quad
ruple chain of mountains along th great
rivers rnav be effected if the nation sets about
it Then there is that other pleasant little pro
ject which contemplates storage reservoirs,
wherein tha anrplus waters of early spring
thall ba retained until they are wanted during
tha drought of summer! If tha re
doubtable Co!. Kellers had though!
of tha Mississippi he need never have
wasted his time in providing eye-water at a
dollar a bottle for the forr hundred million of
weak-eyed Asiatics. Tua whole couutry Is
interested in having tho river made as useful
and as harmless as possihltf, bt.t the way to do
this is to learn the habits of the river, an1
adapt ourselves and our neceasitica to its c in
Toiucnce. No strait-jacket can ba made that

Never cut open the pages of a book or mag

Never deface books in anv way. Never

Never wet your fingers to tarn over a leaf
Be warned by tha fate of tho king iu the Ara

Kever let books lean sideways for a Iona
time, as it racks the covers. If the ebsonce oi
one or more books from a shelf make it diffi
cult to kep thf Tetnalniag volumes wpvlght,
insert a wooden block in the place ef the mie

It is beet not to cover the hooks of a library
with paper. As Mr. William i Toole puts i
the covering is expensive, troublesome, and
quite as muen an iajury as a p? rtection to a
book." A book covered w.th paper is hkely to
ned rebindiug sooner thaa if it be Bjt cov
ered. A room fnll of hooks covered with
paper is dull and nionotor.ou.3 ; and bo one
wiio has over glaacod into such a room will be
inclined to di-.asree with Mr. Pooie when he
eava that "books lose tln-ir individuality by be
ing covered." This is not only an aesthetic dis
advantage; it also reduces the usefulness of
the hooka, as they are ieas easily handled aud
kept apart and in" onk-r. However, It may
well to cover children's school books, but with
raa!in, cot with paper.
