If a child loves books at all, you can
hardly begin too early to instruct her
or him (there is no reason for always
saying "him") with really -valuable
books. The fine book sets a standard
of treatment for the .rest. If the child
has only cheap, flimsy volumes, "al
ways coming to pieces, a book will
seem to be worthy of no care, and the
library will not be valued. But a
choice work, beautifully' bound, is so

owner will come to see that a book
is, of may be, a matter Worth consid

to supplement these methods. Filtration
is usually effective, but many times
cannot be used. The method is so ex
pensive that the vast majority of
towns are obliged to do without it.
Again, there are many times when the
polluted water of a reservoir must be
purified at once. An epidemic is at
hand, and ttyere is no time for slow fil
tration. Then it is that Dr. Moore's
discovery helps us. By his method, in
