It may 1?? gathered from these many cases of library depredations that they are very common, that perpetual *lgft- ance Is necessary In order to guard the books aad that In nearly all cases some form of punishment -would be wiser than pardon. In many cases of detected theft strong appeals are made by the culprit ! WANT COLUMN ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? or hH f fiends to save exposure by public proceeding*. These appeals are commonly made not so much to avoid pay- Ing flues imposed by law as to avoid the disgrace attached to publicity. It Is probably true that in the majority of cases such influence has been strong enough to overcome the determination of the library authorities to let the law take Its course. Unfortunately, the consequence of such leniency seems to encourage the extremely lax conception of the sacredness of public property entertained by so many men and women of LOCAL PROVISION QUOTATIONS LOST Umbrella left in park Sunday af: ternoon.

Washington (la.) Democrat. " While it may be taken for grafted that the great body of readers who frequent any public library are honest, both in practice and intention, there will always remain a certain number who are conspicuously the reverse. In all public libraries a large number of volumes disappear during the 12 months of a year; a few of these may have been lost through carelessness while iii circulation, Ijut the greater number of them have been stolen, says the Philadelphia Record. Ths fact being freely admitted in the reports of all librarians, the question naturally arises: Who are -the thieves? Do they steal the books in order to sell them, or does their dishonesty arise from a diseased love of literature? . Melvil Dewey, who may be regarded as an authority on the subject, has truthfully declared that it is almost impossible to tell a library thief at sight. He may hide his dishonesty beneath an exterior as smug and sanctimonious as that of Pecksniff. A prominent lawyer of Brooklyn, of distinguished appearance and fine manners, made a regular practice of stealing the periodicals in WANTED WANTED???

Being caught at It one day and accused by the librarian, he put on an air of great dignity, hotly declared he was insulted and walked out But the magazine the lawyer had stolen was found thrown down in the entry, and he ne.ver again reappeared in that library. At the New York mercantile., library a young, .woman, was dlicbyered leaving the rooms with one book, which she was entitled to. in her hand, and five others hidden under her cloak. She proved to belong to a well- to-do family, and was amply able to buy all the books?she could need. The late Dr. William F. Poole. who haTI charge of the Chicago public library, declared that many clergymen had, as regards books, an imperfect appreciation of the laws of meum tunm. He had found ministers more remiss in returning books than any other class of men. He did not intend to reflect on a noble and sacred profession by charging tee derelictions of the few upon the many, but he believed the truth about the matter should be told. He had had unpleasant experiences with men of that calling, who, after stealing books from .the library, had removed the book plates ??ttd library stamp and covered the volumes with heavy paper, carefully pasted down inside the covers. This statement seems to be borne out by the record of the Union theological seminary at New York, in its dealings with ministers and theological students. According to the librarian's report the seminary has lost 1,000 volumes, taken out and not returned. This, of course, included what were charged out, but could not be recovered. The long history of the Mercantile library of Philadelphia "Furnishes many strange cases of this form of petty larceny. At a certain period in the somewhat checkered career of this time- honored institution a number of valuable books were missed from its shelves. and moans were taken to dttect the culprit. This led to the discovery that the thief was a physician in the most respectable rank in society, snd more thar 50 volumes were found upon the shelve* of his private library and rfco'- Other examples of kleptomania in sons of accepted social position ha^ tonished the custodians of thi?? li froTg. time to tnr^, but the WANTED???
