binding them together in a dainty little
booklet -all by hand, as Elbert Hnbbard
Tbia special magazine- contained two
continued stories both by well-known
writers and also a history in monthly
installments. When one of the stories
was completed she took the numbers it
appeared in and removed the pages of
the story by bending up .the wires at
the back and slipping off the leaves.
The story was then all placed-togetber
and bound byyi wire run through the
holes already in the leave (in place of
wire, an invisible hairpin will do quite
Of course, many pages of the story
were printed on sheets on the other aide
of whicbTwae material not wanted'in'the
book. But the pages not belonging to
the story were easily covered by illus
trationspictures which had been need
as frontispieces or at the beginning of
chapters. If there should not be
enough of these pictures for the space
to be covered, other magazine pictures,
not originally intended for the illustra
tion of the story but yet appropriate,
might be found; or, failing that, some
short poem which has appealed to the
bookmaker. In pasting leaves together,
fastening in a few places will be suffic
ient and more artistic, for if the leaves
are pasted all over, they will be sure to
wrinkle somewhere and have a gener
ally mussy look. All this pasting should
be done, of course, before the parts are
Then comes the cover, where one may
display much or little artistic skill.
Gray, brown or other colored cardboard
with the title letters in a contrasting
color is effective, and the cardboard
covers can bo fastened on the back of the
book by passe-partout binding; or, if Jhe
book is small, by a silk cord passed
through the hole. Anyone who can
paint a little will, of course, see other
-ways to decorate each a cover. Bind
ings still prettier and easier to fasten
on are made from brown linen or from
chamois, the chamois lettered in gilt or
painted and the linen painted or em
broidered. But the ways of covering
such books are endless, and will readily
Next Christmas almost anyone would
be glad to receive one of the new novels,
daintily bound, or perhaps a collection
of short stories, or a history really valu
able to the student.
It is unnecessary to speak of the
beautiful pictures, colored and other
wise, which may be taken from maga
zines and mounted on cardboard and
passe-partout. They are often as stun
ning as posters, which we pay a dollar
for at Christmas time. Magazines which
contain pictures of actors and actresses
can be put to good use in this work of
bookmaking, for souvenir books of stage
artists are in great demand nov, and one
made at home is quite as interesting
and much prettier than those sold in the
theatres or book stores.

John Smith, Esq. My Dear Smith: I
know that a warm friendship has always
existed between us, but I can not con
ceive how any man in his right mind
can allow such a villainous whelp as
that of yours to remain around his
house, and I must insist that you pay
me the full amount of my fine bird dog,
.jwhich is now lying at the point of death
'as the result of an encounter with your
cut -the last time he followed me to
your house. He came home three days
after I lost him, and if he ever does re
cover he is ruined forevermore. I don't
want to quarrel with you, Smith, but
this is a serious matter, and, while no
money can replace my fine old Brutus, L J
feel that it will be only justice for you f
to pay me $250, which is the price I paid
for the dog two years ago.
John Smith Sir: Complaint corao3
to this office that you are violating city
ordinance 41,143, which makes it a mis
demeanor to allow a vicious dog to rue

policeman to your neighborhood to in
vestigate this matter if you do not im
mediately take steps to abate this nuis
ance. The maximum fine in your case
is $100, er fifty days' imprisonment.
