Latest Additions Are Works Which
Will Be of Vast Use to
People of City
Some of the books recently added to
the collection of the Harrisburg Pub-
Itc Library are of especial Interest.
Two of the works of the East Indian
post, Rabindranath Tagore, recent re
cipient of the Nobel prize for lit
erature, are "Sadhana, or the Realiza
tion of Life," being his philosophical
leotures delivered at Harvard Univer
sity. and the "Gardener." lyrics trans
lated from the original Bengali by the
Josephine Preston Penbody's latest
book is a poetic dmma, "The Wolf of
Gubblo," the story of the play being
taken from the "Little Flowers of
St Francis of Assist."

readings from his poems, has been In
vited to come to Princeton University
us lecturing professor. The library
has his complete poems and his poetic
play, "Sherwood," and has recently
added "Tales of the Mermaid Tavern,"
one of hla long poems, which remark
ably reproduces the spirit of the Eliz
abethan period.
One of the popular books of last
year was "Crowds," by G. S. Lee. More
recently has appeared "Crowds, Jr.,"
which also promises popularity.
A book of much Interest locally is
Dr. Thomas S. Blair's extensive work
on "Public Hygiene," which covers
very fully a subject becoming of more
and more importance with the in
crease of population and consequent
need of careful oversight of the public
Additions are being made aa rapidly
as possible to tlio children's collection,
upon which such hoavy demands have
been made. The boys will welcome
Harper's "Aircraft Book" and Sweet
sor's "Book of Indian Braves;" and
not only children, but all lovers of
Mother GOO6O and of artistic illus
trations. will enjoy Mother Goose Illus
trated by Arthur Hackham.
Wright's "Encyclopedia of Garden
ing" is a timely addition, for as Spring
opens the library hopes to supply an
Increased demand for the literature of
gardens and flower lovers.
Numbers of new titles have been
added to the Action list which will at
tract the general I reader, and the
library expects to supply extra copies
ol popular books as it becomes pos
The coming fair weather has boosted
the attendance at the library and Sat
urday's figures show how it is being
used. On that day there were 844
books circulated and there were 477
readers at the rooms. This number of
readeito is the greatest on any day
since the library has been opened and
included 266 children. The Saturday
story-telling class was attended by 74
youngsters. Thirteen questions were
answered at the reference desk on
Saturday alone.
If a merry comedy that alternates
roars, screams and yells with Gatllng
gun rapidity Is what theatergoers
want, they will crowd the Majestic
Theater to-night when the funniest
play ever written, "Baby Mine," will
make Its long-awaited appearance, and
Judging from the advance sale it is
evident that everybody Is going.
'•.L.aby Mine" is Justly entitled to the
title, "the world's funniest comedy." It
not only ran for one solid year at
Daly's Theater, New Yor, but Is now
playiiyj In London—Us second year In
the British metropolis. Aaverise

did musical hit reveals the new forces
and tndencles of the time In theatrical
entertainment. Beyond such details It
Is too well known as a marked suc
cess to require further Introduction. It
Is Interesting: to note the many hands
that have been utilized in welding it
Into a satisfactory whole. The story
originally traces Itself to ••Villa Prim- .
rose," a farce by Georges Berr and I
Marcel Gullleemaud, of the Parisian
stage. -C. M. 8. McLellan adapted It for |
the American stage, Ivan Caryll adapt
ed it for America's musical score, Klaw
and Erlanger made the production and
Herbert Gresham staged It for them,
while Julian Mitchell looked after the
Jlrl numbers and ensembles. The pro
ucers have wisely kept their big hit
Intact. The original production and
company of over 100 people remains In
every part of the same.—Advertisement.
Novelty is the keynote of the Or-'
pheum bill this week, if the bill of
variety that went on view yesterduy
Isn't replete with unusual features. It
Isn't anything. Somebody remarked
at the matinee that the bill ought to
be called a St Patrick cocktail bill on
acount of Its many rare and unusual
Ingredients. To-day that expression Is
at least appropriate and utter looking
Into the contents of that beverage, the
management may brand It that. Start
ing with the headllner, a screeching
comedy called "Wrong Prom the
Start, we have the first and biggest
novelty, Keith vaudeville has never
served up a comedy that oan be com
pared with this Irresistible laugh- 1
ringer. The playlet Is a whole;
"melodramer" In four acts, with special
sceenry for each "act. It Is a blood
thirsty sort of story, so ridiculously
thrilling that it's funny, and Is staged
!ind played along such ''rube" lines that!
t kofeps the audrenoe In constant laugh- !
er. Then there is a Chinese baritone
singer, offering a budget of tuneful 1
ballads. He is programed as Prince I
Lai Yon Kim, ana Is the only Chinese |
baritone trlller over seen here. Ed Vin
ton and "Buster" Is another of the de- I
olded bits of novelty, "Buster" is really
a wonderful dog. He plays the piano
and prays and does all sorts of stunts
without any apparent cues. Much origi
nality is also injected in a comedy
musical act presented by Kline, Abe
and Nicholson; as \yell as a musical
skit, "Traveling," with Hopkins, Ax
tell and company. Several acts of merit
I round out the bill.—Advertisement.
I Hodge and Lowell, an eccentric duo,
In a good comedy and singing turn, are
the bright lights of the variety bill
that was Introduced at the Colonial
yesterday. Grouped 'on the same bill
Is Alberta Whitman and her Picks in a
song, dance and comedy turn; and Josh
Dreano and company In a skit of songs
and patter. "The Intrigue," a splendid
Kalem moving picture feature, In two
Barts,8 arts, will be a special attraction to

piece of Henry Arthur Jones, "Hood
man Blind," In Ave acts, will be shown.
This picture Is recommended by the
largest motion theater In the country
as being one of the best ever produced
"A Stronger Hand" Is a two-act Ma
jestic picture which holds Its audience
from start to finish. "Kid Love" Is a
Keystone picture, showing the child
