Excerpt from The Inter Ocean: Curiosity Shop; For the Year 1881

The three preceding annual volumes of Our. Curiosity Shop are so well known to the readers of The Inter Ocean that this one, the fourth, needs no introduction. Since the issue of the number for the year 1880, numerous and hearty commendations have been received from representatives of many of the leading professions educators, lawyers, editors, and business men generally in regard both to the aim and the character of this form of Our Curiosity Shop; and all have in various ways expressed the opinion that, in its treatment of the myriad subjects it touches, it has been at once thorough and concise, so that none were compelled to search through the usual bushel of chaff for the single coveted golden grain.

The intelligent reader will, upon a moments reflection, appreciate the fact that each year the labor of preparing a work of this kind for the general public is materially increased. An annual encyclopedia confines itself to the recording of the events of the year; it Is, as the newspaper, the hasty historian of the day. With Our Curiosity Shop, however, it is somewhat different More than a barren chronological record of a twelvemonth or a decade, it reaches out and appropriates for the benefit of its readers the most recent developments and discoveries of science; it seeks to explain the greater or lesser social and political movements of the past and of the hour; it compresses into the smallest space possible the best thought of religious teachers and other educators; and it presents for the noble emulation of the young the outlines of the lives and characters of those who have risen to distinction in the several walks of life. And the cost of this miniature library of miscellaneous information for the people is so trifling that it rests lightly upon all who are moved to purchase copies of it for themselves or for the use of their friends.

The attention of the readers of the following pages is invited to the Index, which has been compiled with considerable care, and without which Our Curiosity Shop would resemble a windowless, doorless storehouse, containing, perhaps, "many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore," but which, were it not for it, might remain "nameless here forever more."
