THE "SHAKESPEARE" BIBLE.
Fatuous Boole Sold at Auction to u
American for S1.050.
At Sotheby's recently there was of
fered for sale an imperfect copy of
the Bible printed by It. Barker in 1613
the New Testament dated 1611
valueless except for some MS. inscrip
tions of more or less interest. The
Bible bajonged to W. Sharp Ogden, of
Rusholme, Manchester, whose grand
father, a well-known collector of
books and prints, bought it for a sov
ereign or two in 1850, and later re
fused $75 for it.
On the reverse of the title of the
New Testament is "William Shake
speare, 1614," and on the end cover,
"Willm. Shakspere, off S. O. A. (Strat-ford-on-Avon),
his Bible, 1613." There
are several other inscriptions, one -of
these showing that seventeen years
after Shakespeare's death it belonged ;
to John Fox, of Warwick. The catal
ogue also suggests some connection
between Thomas Hall and James
Hall, to whom, early in the eighteenth
century, the Bible belonged, and John
Hall, who married Shakespeare's
slaughter. But no evidence on the
point is forthcoming.
The pedigree of the book was re
garded by dealers as satisfactory. ' As
to the Shakespeare signatures, opinion
, -varies within wide limits. The folio
was started at about ?250, and
Messrs.- Pearson Dought it "on behalf
of an American client for $1,000
quite as much as was anticipated.
Several other classics of the sale
room were also bought by private col
lectors for considerable sums. "Robin
son Crusoe," with th "Further Ad
ventures" and "Serious Recollections,"
three volumes, original calf, made
$1,250 not very far short of the au
thor's record established in 10G3; the

Nothing Too Good.
In the remote fastnesses of the
Southern mountains there are many
cabins in which sugar, even of- the un
refined variety, is -unknown. . Most
things go unsweetened, 'but for espe
cial'occasions there is reserved a jug
of molasses or -corn syrup, known fa
miliarly as "long sweetening."
. It was in such a cabin that an itin
erant preacher was called upon to pass
the night. The mountaineers were de
lighted at the honor of entertaining
such distinguished company. When
supper time came, the usual repast of
biscuits and frizzled pork was increas
ed by the addition of boiled potatoes.
But when it came to pouring the cof
fee, the hostess was in her glory. She
produced a demijohn of "long sweeten
ing," and filled the minister's cup more
than half full of it
The minister viewed this proceeding
"There, there, my good woman," he
protested, vehemently, "that will do,
that will do! No more, I beg of you!"
But ""my good woman" mistook the
cause of his protest. .
"Lawsy me!" she exclaimed. "Don't
be worrited, parson. Why, all larses
aint too good for the minister."

as because of the educational advan

summer In the Chicago "Ghetto," the
first day brought to the schoolhouse
many times the number of children
that could be cared for. The teachers
were In a quandary, as they were way
laid by mothers and. ' fathers and by
the children themselves, pleading for
'chance in the school." At last the
superintendent hit upon an easy meth
od of classification which would admit
the very poor and exclude all others.
The children had erowded Into, a
great assembly-room, and there be ad
dressed them. "Now, children," he
said, "first of all I want those of you
whose fathers peddle from wagons to
raise your hands." i
There , was a rustle, and up shot
nearly a fourth of the hands In the
room. Their owners waved them
"That Is fine," said the superintend

"Now all those whose fathers ped

have fathers who carry a basket on

them and peddle?" '
Nearly every remaining hand was
raised, and the superintendent smiled.
I thought that would fix It" he said,
"You are the children this school is
meant for. You will all be assigned
to seats by the teachers."
Those he had sent Into the hall were
