WHAT SOLDIERS READ. I According to Miss Beatrice Harnu den, who is the librarian of the Endell Street Military Hospital, soldiers like Nat Gould's books best. Among the books in demand are: "Regiments at the Front," "Freckles," Horner's Penny Stories, Charles Garvice, Browning's poems, "Treasure Island,' "The Last Days of Pompeii," "The Scarlet Pimpernel," Rex Beach, and the Encyclopaedia. The Anzacs like bushrange,r stories, and all overseas soldiers like books about England, Baroness Orczy and Charles Garvice are prime favouri tes. Mrs. Henry Wood is in great demand, particularly with "East Lynne," and Tolstoy's "Resurrection" is so popular that several copies have had to be bought. The popularity of "The Last Days of Pompeii'' puzzled the librarians un- til they found that the soldiers who asked for it had seen it on the film.
