When Japanese Children Tle.
We stopped one day at a pretty and
rather modest temple shriue, where sat a
clean polled, benevolent looking priest,
with bijz rimmed spectacles astride his
little nose. Before and above and about
the shrine hung little children's frocks,
their tiny shoeH, pretty littlo belts, dolLt,
and other playthings.
"What is this?" we asked our guide.
"When little children come to die their
mothers bring their dresses and play
things here, and put a little money in this
box. Every day the priest offers prayers
that the littlo ones may be made happy
after death, and havo nice things and
pretty playthings when they go to stay
up there with Ood.
As we talked, a heart stricken mother
came and tossed her coin Into the box,
nnd as she placed the little bundle of her
dear one's pretty clothes in the tender
priestly hand, we thought there was but
one thing better than this, the saying,
"Suffer little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not." Japan Letter.
A Carloua Negro Saperitltlon.
There is an old "darky" superstition
which still holds a place iu the miuds of a
great many of our colored population
V lien the ilrst thunder morm or the year
comes the superstitious negro makes a
beeline for tho nearest river or creek. Ho
may be seen watching the rolling waters
for nome time, till at last he spies a dark
object on its surface. He grabs it as it
floats near the bank. With one-exulting
exclamation lie binds the object around
his wrist nnd goes hi3 way in peace, se
cure, as he thinks, from the rheumatism
and kindred ailmeuts. What was the
object? The skin of a water snake. Snakes
are said to shed their skins when lightning
first appears, and the negro believes that
winding a snake skin around his wrist at
this time exerts a counteracting Influence
on nearly all diseases. Charlotte (X. C.)
The Crow In India.
Crows are as gentlo ns are sparrows
with us. Indeed, much more so. I saw
one iu Calcutta taking its meal from a
quarter of beef which a butcher had on
his head, and several times I have seen
them steal food from a man's dish when
he was eating before his door. They
come within five or six feet of natives at
every railway station, but eye very sus
piciously a foreigner, and can hardly be
tempted with crumbs nearer than ten feet
or so. There are vast numbers of them
in every part of the land. In Burmah
they are black; here they have a mouse-
colored neck, and look as if they wore a
cape. A uative hurts nothing if he can
help it. Carter Harrison's Letter.
The Codfish. Disappearing.
In about another decade the American
and Canadian legislative bodies will not
be absorbed with arguments on the home
and habits of the festive codfish. He is
slowly disappearing from our coasts, and
the banks of Newfoundland which knew
him once know him no more. Fishermen
now practice deep sea nshing with, very
poor results, as the cod seems to fight shy
of all bait. While we consider these facts
our attention i3 directed to the other side
of the globe, where immense schools of
codfish are reported on the west coast of
Africa, although they have never been
heard of in that quarter before. They
must have grown tired of the eternal
squabbling about their feeding grounds
and have emigrated to neutral territory,

LIFE IN LIBRARIES.
SOME OF THE QUEER FOLKS WHO
READ PUBLIC BOOKS.
The Sain Old Man Who Head the Sana
Old Volume How the Alitor Library
ITelpa . Young ArtUta Visitor at Cooper
Libraries, especially the big public ones of
this tovrn, somehow seem to have about them
something puthetic. Take the Astor, for in
stance -that magnificent stone and iron home
of a quarter of a million volumes. It isn't
tho unidentified books softly growing gray
under the gathering dust of years that ap
peal to ono, so much as the living delvers
who dig through this accumulating forget
ful ness in search of an idea. There they sit,
day after day, generation after generation,
patiently, 6ilently, hungrily hunting a fact.
Tho inarblo stairways huvo been worn into
little hollows by their feet. Some of these
footsteps have long ago lost their way in tho
enchanted region of Bohemia, and some of
tbem, youthful and springy, show their own
ers to be still seeing rainbow visions of prom
ise behind tho soft swinging doors. Minister
and mechanic, artist and artisan, physician
and fiction writer jostlo elbows ono against
tho other, and for each ono the shelves have
a different story to tell. Tho Academy of the
Immortals, tho hospital or the morgue are
tao rewards of those who labor here.
SEEKING MECHANICAL LORE.
Over against the alcove where patent re
ports are kept sits an old man. Tho table in
front of him is strewn with drawings on card
board and tracings on oiled paper. Nino vol
nines, an iorojuaing looking, are piled up
about him, and the tenth lie ha3 spread open
before him. For four years ho lias sat tho
same way. As sure as comes the postman
and the s.un, so surely copies this strange old
man, searching, probing, questioning tho
Sphynx pages that say so little or so much,
pieaamg wun tno Diaeis volumes to give ur
their secret. Ho speaks to no one, and is
jealously careful that no alien eye shall rest
upon his drawings. If ho were searching for
the secret of perpetual motion he could not
be more guarded in every action. Now and
then the favorite works on mechanics are re
placed by some raro and all forgotten screed
teaching discoveries made by the old alchem
ists in their experiments toward making
gold. He is only a type. His clothes aro
poor. He spends barely ten minutes at lunch
during the day. Sometimes he does not go
out at all. And, after all, the academy may
not hold a niche for him.
For tho artist the library is a mine, and
the figured wall paper in your hallway has
probably come from some old scroll that
Japanese works here show. Just in the samo
way the delicately hammered griflina that
ornament your silver service may be copies
from some forgotten volume, or if not copies
yet suggested by something seen there. Tho
beautiful in art is tenacious of life, and has a
lucky way of surviving the tooth of time that
bids one hope. There is no busier table than
this at which these workers bend.
When spring comes laughing in, a new
order changes tho routine of tho library.
The very dust upon the books seems to feci
tho quickening breath. Volumes that havo
not been touched for months are taken down.
The number of feminine visitors increases.
There is color and perfumo and lightness to
set ofl! tho Ebade that hangs over all. Tho
far alcove to the south sees pretty heads
bending above colored plates in old books
whose type makes it difficult to tell an S from
an F. And what ore thoy looking for in
these old volumes, yoa ask? For fashions.
With the coming of blue skies there is an in
stinctive turning to new designs in dress.
And where can one get better ideas than
from thoso old plates that tell of "tea cup
times of hoop and hood," when our grand
mothers dreamt of moonlight and blue eyes.
So the pretty Easter bonnet that your Phillis
wears today is only a modification of one
that her grandmother found fair half a cen
tury ago. So, too, when fancy dress balls
ore in vogue, the old library always sees an
influx of feminine readers hanging over old
fashion plates, studying up new ways to be
beautiful, for the beautiful is as old as wo
COOPER nfSTTTCTE'S VISITORS.
J ust around the corner tho library of Cooper
institute has very different visitors. Like
tho Astor, it is a reference library and no
books are allowed to be taken away. New
York has no great public circulating libra
ries like those of Boston and Chicago. The
free circulating library of this town and
several smaller ones allow books to be taken
out, but they are supported by private sub
scription and tho city has no voice in their
There is no novel reading at the Astor be
cause no novels are kept, and at the Cooper
library the percentage of fiction is said to bo
smaller than at any other library in the
world. Its reading room is the home of
workingmen, and they read to improve their
minds or for some specific purpose, not for
fun. Early in the morning there is always a
rush for the daily newspapers. The town is
never without its contingent of unemployed,
and these haunt tho files, pouring over ad
vertisements in the hope of finding a clew to
a job. In the good old times when men
feared God and honored the king, before the
struggle for existence became a hand to hand
tight, things were not so. You can tell one
of these unemployed by the aimless way he
walks the moment he enters the room, just
as you can tall a policeman's drawling step
among the thousands that sound outside your
Of course there are the usual loungers
among the 2,000 people that come every day
into the reading room. During the winter
they come into the room to get warm, take a
book in hand, forget themselves and are soon
asleep. These are soon gotten rid of. For
the past four months one Anarchist looking
man has been taking a thorough course in
chemistry. Another middle aged man sits
every day by a post near the end of the halL
For nearly six months he has not missed a
day. Ho comes in early in the morning,
reads until noon, goes out to lunch, and re
turns and spends the afternoon in the same
chair. The ladies have an alcove set apart
for their own use. Many who do not have a
fire at home drop in to read an afternoon
away in a cozy nook. - In the same way, a
number of elderly men who have small in
comes come day after day to their favorite
corners and dream over tales of adventure.
The New York Historical library, a few
blocks away, is saturated with intense and
almost painful respectability. It,, too, is a
reference library, devoted almost wholly to
American history, to genealogy and to
heraldry. In this, our new couutry, the
study of genealogy is not what the library
hopes to see it, and every assistance is given
to the author who compiles a volume on the
decline and fall of the Joneses. F. A. Duneka
