"The demand during the past few years for the

"Was the war accountable for it?" we asked, in
what we religiously thought was a duty to try .
least to discover why such a state of affairs 'could
exist. It had occurred to us that in the midst of
battles and slaughterings of a world-wide nature,

manager as he walked away to wait upon someone
whose trade was more remunerative than our own,
and we sadly departed, in the belief that the world

book man. We asked him if the line of talk we had

"People," said he, "go to the movies, and see fine
surroundings in the stage properties. They see
something that looks good to tfiem and ask them-
selves the question:: 'Why can't:I have something
of the same nature in my own home?' And, forth-

the sort, as 'well as good."
And the question arose as to whether the movies
were unconsciously influencing our lives as to read-
ing. Seeing the spectacular and the extravagant and
the exciting picture, do we unconsciously enter the
book store and demand the novel, or the maga-
zine, of like nature.
