PROBLEM IS A PERPLEXING ONE
It Una Been Sogftestcd That Paper
for Kilos lie Printed on Special
Paper, lint ThU Would
The most valuable volumes in the public
library are the newspaper files not the
most valuable measured In dollars and
certs If they were to be sold, but rather
becuise impossible to replace if they
should be destroyed. That is why the
preservation of the flies of local news-
rapers In the Omaha public library
I alnst time, rough usage find disintegra
tion Is one of the perplexing problems
confronting the library authorities.
"In ttn or fifteen years our paper,
o-" thirty and even twenty years ago will
be unfit for use," says Miss Edith Tobitt,
librarian. "Tne significance of this iies
in the fact that the dally newrparers arc
the chief source of Omaha history. It Is
to the Omaha newspapers that historians
of the s;ute and the general public go
for dat.j on lecal events. What Is hap
Fer.ini; to our old files will be true with
ci.r pnpr-rs cf the future unless something
is done to prevent. The only files avail
able for the public, when there are gone,
will be thofe in the Congressional library
in Washington, D. C.
The Omaha library did not begin saving
papers until it became public In :S7I. So
the early papers on file there are well
preserved because they have been given
by private individuals and have never
been in general use. Among these old
papers are the Omaha Arrow of 1S.'4;
Omaha Times, 1S37; Omaha Nebraskan,
1SC3; Omaha Weekly Bee. 1S73.
ltnpitlly Going to Pieces.
The pages of these papers are still white
and flim because they are not out for
general ue, but the papers used con
stantly by the public have almost gone
to pieces. The oldest paper In use is
a Bee of 1S78. The paper Is turning dark
and Is torn et the edges. All the file? of
the last twenty and thirty years are in
the same condition.
H. A. Sonter, head of the chemistry de
partment In the high school, says that
the light and dampness enure a chemical
change in the paper which make it yellow
and brittle. He says that the only way to
rave the papers Is to keep them in a dark,
On a recent visit to eastern libraries
Miss Tobitt discovered a librarian In
Duquesne, Pa., who ..ad solved the prob
lem of preserving newspaper f)les for the
luture. He has Induced the local papers to
print one copy each day on a durable
linen paper especially for library flies.
Miss Tobitt nisconragrd.
Miss Tobitt recently addressed inquiries
V the publishers of Omaha dailies to as
certain whether it would be possible to
have a special copy of each day's issue
likewise printed for the library upon
linen paper, but has not received much
encouragement. One answer was that it
was possible to do so, but only at an
expense that would be prohibitive. The
reason is because the method of printing
the newspaper today on rapid-fire presses
has superseded the old plan of taking
flat Impressions, one side at a time, by
which alone a linen paper copy could be
had, and in addition the constant and
rapl changing of pages In a dally news
paper office would leave no opportunity
to make a special print.

The board of governors of Ak-Sar-Ben
has been preparing the celebration at the
Den tomorrow night to be the biggest and
best of th.i year. A number of sensa
tional additions have been made to the
circus and concert, it Is said, and special
equipment for stating and feeding has
been Installed at the Den.
As Lincoln night Is next to tlv9 last
night, the circus promoters are working
up the performance so that there may be
considerable momentum when tho grand
climax, a week away, comes.
The last night at the- Den, a week from

It is rather unfortunate that the date
of September 2 was selected for Lincoln
night this year on account of that date
being fixed as Lincoln diy at the state
fair. It Is also the date g:'t by the stat
committee, for the unveiling of the mag
nificent IJncoln monument, but notwltn
