learned had perused lie would be ignorant as they The theorizing meta physician had but little relish for books and frequently said that authors were like sheep who kept continually trudging on in the beaten tracks and that their works were nothing but copies of extracts of previously written books Happily for authors such men as Hobbes are vastly in the minority as one ean dearly perceive by visiting any of the libraries in the city Disregarding the numerous circulating iblaries which supply their readers chiefly with the latest novels the large puWic libraries such as that of the Historical Society the Astor and others ate the places where the principal types of the world of readers ara largely represented There may be found the thoroughbred bibliomaniac who day after day rain or shine wends his way to the halla of learning to satisfy his appetite for knowl edge the litterateur buried beneath un wieldy volumes and the schoolboy with a literal translation of some abstruse author endeavoring to get through with his work of preparation as soon as pos sible The Astor Library on account of its distinctive nature as a reference library and the great facilities which it affords for researches and studies of all kinds is es pecially the magnet forstudents few who come here read simply for amusement all that frequent it are hard workers Even the outward appearance of the building solid unadorned yet elegant is sufficient to deter anyone from entering merely to direrfc himself and long array of alcoyes inside all closely tilled with solemn massive learned looking vol umes the numbers of men quietly read ing and taking hotesthe absence of all noise which prevails elsewhere will drive out any prefane visitor from the temple of books The little world of the readers of this library is quite cosmopolitan in its nature The sedate solemn looking Ger man who of course is most largely rep resented in a place like this closely en gaged with some to an outsider dull but to him highly interesting philological work sits beside a mercurialFrenchman hurrying over the witty pages of Moliere or the grand pathetic effusions of fiacine Some years ago a young Japanese and an Armenian came every day for some time to study English literature They ex changed a solemn bow in the morning and then set to work with an energy worthy of being crowned with success Swedes and Russians have also of late been fre quently noticed attracted no doubt by the large stock of Scandinavian works of which the library boasts TITUSY1LLE ERIDAY MAY 11 1877 WHOLE NO 4354 fr VI

highly benettcial among the working girls Though not very large it is sufficient for the wants of the readers and contains plenty of works on all subjects Light literature of course is principally read There are many girls however who read nothing but the severer and more laborious kinds of books There was a Canadian woman a fur worker who a few years ago was one of the most constant readers of this library She read nothing but history and philosophy In dress and manner she was very eccentric and re turned and received her books without saying anything but a simple good even ing When she was in the humor how ever she could talk with the greatest fa cility and critical acumen upon literary subjects It takes most of the girls who I belong to this library a long while to read itustained by
