Patronage During February Not
Much Affected in Spite of the
Heavy Snow Storms
Harrisburg people are using their
new public library at a rate which has
not only been a surprise but almost a
source of embarrassment because the
patronage has been far larger than ex
pected, particularly by school children.
The big storms had a comparatively
small effect upon the patronage during
February, as 10,616 books were circu
lated as compared with 11,888 in Jan
uary, the first month in which tht>
library was open to the public. Even
on some of the blizzard days 2 50 to 300
books were taken out, although, of
course, the service among school chil
dren fell off.
In February 7,060 were taken out
by adults and 3,456 by Juveniles, the
January figures being 7,725 adults and
4,163 children. The library is handi
capped by the demands upon its store
of books for children. It has 2,000
books of this class and less than 350
were on the shelves to-day, with a
steadily Increasing registration of
school children. During February
3,694 readers were at the library,
against 4,409 in January. Of the Feb
ruary number 2,148 were adults and
1,446 children. The reference division
answered t26 questions, most of them'
by students of the schools. This is a
larger number than in January, and
some of the questions Involved consid
erable search. The registration thus
far amounts to 3,945 adults and 1,476
The library will have its first visit
from out-of-town library experts on
April 1, when the class of the Pratt
library school attached to the Pratt
Institute, of Brooklyn, will Inspect It.
The class Is coming on a visit to Penn
sylvania cities and will visit the State
Library and the Capitol and Inspect
the new Harrisburg Library.
Lewlßtown, Pa., March B.—Joseph
Flchthorn, a well-known tinner, met
with a peculiar accident early yester
day morning. Before the family was
up William, a son, heard his father
moaning and he quickly went to in
vestigate the cause. A heavy orna
ment from the top of the headboard
of the oak bedstead had broken loose
and had fallen, striking the father on
top of the head. Mr. Flchthorn Is 82
years old.

It has been a long time since Or
pheum audiences laughed as heartily as
they are this week at Rodger Imhof,
of legitimate fame, and an excellent
supporting cast, presenting a military
travesty called "Surgeon Louder, U. S.
A." At least this is the first oppor
tunity we have had to see an artist of
his style at all since we viewed John
and Emma Ray some weeks ago. The 1
comedy efforts of the two, howevei, -■
will bear excellent comparison. Not
only because in each instance these
players assume roles of "brave" sol
diers, with all apoloigies to tbat adjec
tive, but because of the similarity of
their comedy antics. The scene of their
fun is laid In the lied Cross quarters of
a Western military camp, where Imhof
appears on the scene as a wounded sol
dier in search of medical aid. He for
gets his Ills by trying to make a deaf
(surgeon understand his troubles, but
the fun of the act begins when the
surgeon hires him to fire a cannon at
sunrise and sunset. Imhof knows
nothing about cannon or powder, and
his antics with a huge powder can and
a big cannon keep his audiences in con
stant convulsive laughter. The act Is
easily one of the comedy hits of the
season and is creating no end of good
fun as one of the sterling attractions
