TO HONOR MARK TWAIN.
Ettinger Wants Books Mentioned in Schools on Author's Birthday.
City Superintendent of Schools Ettinger has notified district superintendents and principals that as Nov. 30 will be the eighty-fifth anniversary of the birth of Mark Twain, Samuel L. Clemens, the attention of pupils, especially of those in the upper grades, ought to be directed to such books as "Tom Sawyer," "Huckleberry Finn" and "The Prince and the Pauper." He says that it might also be worth while to mention that the last named story has been dramatized and is now being produced in this city.
"I understand," he says, "that the production is notable both from the standpoint of the actors concerned, and the historical correctness of the scenery and costumes."
