Fact and Rumor.
Berlin has a bookseller who can neither read nor write. He is well respected and sells good books, many of them scientific, and the best literature of the day. He has an excellent memory and a large trade. Some of the characters which he has devised for memoranda are said to be curious enough. It is the shape and size of books that are his chief guide, and he has seldom been known to make a serious mistake.
