A Convincing Aniirer,
There are many people who do not
care for libraries who pride themselves
on having "only the books they read"
about them, but the answer made by .
a distinguished scholar to one of those
persons very well illustrates how valu
able is this Idea as to what a library
should be. The scholar was connected
with an Institution of learning which
had been greatly helped by a liberal
man of the neighborhood, but the liber
al man was not much of a sympathizer
with the idea of Increasing the library.
When appealed to In tbe matter, he re
plied: "More books? Dear me, it seems to
me you've got more than you can read
now. Have you read all you have al
"No," returned the scholar, "and I
never expect to read them all."
"Then why do you want more?"
"Let me ask you," said the scholar,
"did you ever read the dictionary
"Certainly not," was the reply.
"Well, sir," Bald the scholar, "a libra
ry Is my dictionary."
The answer Was convincing, and the
merchant provided the professor with
the funds he wished for. Pittsburg
It Can't Be Done Now.
"An Increase of salary!" exclaimed
tbe pompous manager of a small omni

made that request. "I am afraid, sir,
that you are too extravagant!"

who returned his stare boldly. It was
the set phrase on such occasions, and
the applicant had heard It all before.
He meant to have that rise or go
"Excuse me, sir," he replied respect
fully, "I haven't any chance to be ex
travagant on what I earn."
"Young man," continued the pom
pous gentleman, "I have risen from
the monkey board. How? By being
careful. When I was young I made
money by saving 'bus fares."
"Ah, that was In the old days," said
the young man, with a knowing wink.
"But with the bell punches and the
present system of Inspection, you

without being collared, however care

Quickaanda Hidden Tinder Clay.
Curious but dangerous freaks of na
ture frequently found in the deserts of
Arizona are called sumlderos by the
Mexicans and Indians. They are mask
ed pitfalls of quicksand that occur In
the dry plains and are covered with a
treacherous crust of clay that has been
ipread over them in fine particles by
the wind and baked dry by the sun.
The peculiar properties of the soil
retain all the moisture drained Into
them after the infrequent rains and al
low It to be filtered to unknown depths,
10 that a man or a horse or a cow or a
Bheep that once steps upon that de
ceptive crust Instantly sinks out of
light beyond hope of rescue. The
sumlderos are on a level with the sur
face of the desert. There Is no dan
ger signal to mark them, and their
lurface cannot be distinguished by the
srdlnary eye from the hard clay that
surrounds them.- They occur most fre
quently in the alkali covered flats and
are often 15 or 20 feet in diameter.
Sometimes they are only little pockets
or wells that a man can leap across,
but the longest pole has never found
their bottom. A stone thrown through
the crust sinks to unknown depths,
and no man who ever fell Into one of
them was rescued. They account for
the mysterious disappearance of many
men and cattle. Chicago Hecord.
Getting Rope Sense.
A peculiarity about roping horses or
steers with a lasso Is that after getting
a hard fall a few times they quickly
get "rope sense." I have often seen
them, in a corral, stand stock 6till
when the rope falls across their backs
even when, as a matter of fact, they
are not caught. If any reader has ever
encountered a clothesline while run
ning at full speed In the dark, the line
stretched at about the level of the
throat, he will notice that he doesn't
run across that lawn any more after
nightfall, lie's got "ropo sense," In
fact Wide World Magazine.

"My good woman, I am glad to hear

"Oh, sir," she replied, "when you

Four Courtship Sundays.
The four Sundays of November are
observed as fete days in Holland. They
are known by the curious names Re
view, Decision, Purchase and Posses
sion and all refer to matrimonial af
fairs, November in Holland being the
month par excellence devoted to court
ship and marriage, probably because
the agricultural occupations of the
year are over and possibly because the
lords of creation from quite remote
antiquity have recognized the pleas
antness of having wives to cook and
cater for them during the long winter.
On Review Sunday everybody goes
to church, and after service there is a
church parade In every village, when
the youths and maidens gaze upon each
other, but forbear to speak. ..
On Decision Sunday each bachelor
who is seeking a wife approaches the
maiden of his choice with a ceremoni
ous bow and from her manner of re
sponding judges whether his advances
are acceptable. Purchase Sunday the
consent of the parents Is sought if the
suit has prospered during the week.
Not until Possession Sunday, howev
er, do the twain appear before the
world as actual or prospective brides
