FICTION CALLS DECREASE
Jliss Isom Sums Up the Good Work
Accomplished During the Past
Year by Portland's Pub
Miss Mary Francos Isom, Public Libra
rian, has made hor fourth annual report
to the directors of the Portland Library
Association, detailing the work of the
Association for its forty-second year. The
reports shows the year to have been one of
keen Interest and accomplishment. The
renovation and rearrangements of the sec
ond floor of the Library, doubling the
space available for library purposes, and
the annual conference of the American
Library Association, are mentioned as
two matters of Importance. In every de
partment the Library shows rapid and
substantial growth, and the extension
work has brought on the end of establish
ing It as a county Institution In the minds
of all residents of Multnomah County.
Miss Isom's report is lengthy and full
of interesting detail, a ss-nopsls of which
will give the public an Idea of the splen
did work being accomplished under her
Intelligent and careful guidance. Begin
ning with the various departments, the
report says, in part:
It is a matter of congratulation that,
iiotwithstanding the distractions of the
Pair without, and the many Interruptions
within, the Library hs more than held its
own in every department during the past
vear. The circulation is 177.07G. against
174.3S5 in 1P04, and this in spite of the fact
that six duys must be discounted from
the usual number; first, because of the
resolution to close the fiscal year on De
cember L7, thereby throwing the last days
of the month Into 190C: then the Library
was entirely closed to the public a day
and a half for the purpose of Inventory,
the day of the opening of the Fair and
wiie-half day on Portland day of the Fair.
The statistics of the reference depart
ment in some respects are unsatisfactory
this year, due to the chunge of conditions,
which necessitates different methods. The
attendance, for Instance, thas been accu
rately kept only since the first of July:
before that It was estimated. The new
reference-room was opened the 1st day of
July, and the orderly quiet, the comfort
and the "possibility of reserving books and
a special table day after day have been
delightfully appreciated, and more solid
work has been done by students than ever
The results of the year's work In the
children's department are particularly
gratifying. In spite of the cramped quar
ters which existed until July and of no
adequate increase of the number of books
on the sholves. there are 1C09 more mem
bers than in 1904, and an increase in cir
culation of 142S. The addition of more
books to this department of the Library
is one of the most pressing needs to be
considered during the coming year. There
are now 310C volumes for the use of 31&9
children: these books were drawn for
home use 40,050 times, an average of near
ly 13 times for each book.
In the Periodical Room.
The attendance in the periodical-room
department Increased by leaps and bounds
as soon as the new room was thrown open
and shows an increase of S573 over 1904.
During the noon hour, and often In the
evenings every seat In the room Is occu
pied. Eighteen new magazines, largely
technical, were subscribed for last year:
five were dropped. Papers from all over
the State of Oregon are generously sent
tree to tnc Library, and are mucn used
The Increased size of the room, permitting
the newspapers to be added to this de
partment, thereby doing away with the
unsupervised newspaper-room m the oasc

ful friends of the newspaper have followed
It upstairs, and there is no diminution of
Its use. while there is the possibility of
Its readers being won to less ephemeral
literature by the dally Influence of the
books about them. The directories are
shelved in this room, and the small col

uregon towns and elcht from cities out

made with San Francisco and Omaha.
Many Gifts of Books.
The Library has been abundantly re
membered by Its friends during the past
year. Miss Mary F. Falling has continued

purchase of art books for the Henry Fall

"With no special Incentive from the Li
brary, and. In fact, almost neclected dur
ing the busy Summer, the county sta
tions nave continued to multiply and to
read more and oetter nooks. The libra
rians in charge, whose services are vol
untary, have almost without exception
shown a delightful Interest in their small
collections, and have taken pains to bring
to the Library for exchange packages of
book little read or of books thoroughly
read, thereby keeping their collections
alive and interesting.
The talks to the first-year pupils of the
High School on the use of the Llbrnrv

Xeed of Branch Stations.
The limit of book distribution has not
yet oeen reached m the Portland Llbrarv
but It soon will bo. and it will be -well to
anticipate the demand and to sunnlv the
needs of this growing city by establishing
nrancnes ana aenvery stations in the most
prominent centers of population. The
quality of the books read has lmnroved.
In the month of December, the fiction per
cent fell to 5S, which, perhaps, is a happy
Indication of the Winter's reading. The
apparent decrease In the use of the Li
brary by the schools is due to the fact
that from the first or tne year both teach
ers and pupils were so absorbed in the
preparation of their exhibits for the Fair
that the regular work was necessarily
neglected. Since the opening of the
schools In the Fall, the Library has been
straining every nerve to meet the dc-
mands made upon it.
In December, encouraged by the nromn
co-operation of Fire Chief Campbell, the
Library offered small collections of books,
apportioned to the number of men to the
engine-houses. The flreboat, Engine No.
5 and Hose Company No. 3 immediately
availed themselves of this opportunity.
The first of the year will, doubtless, see
ail the engine-nouses supplied with good
and entertaining literature.

Council does not grant his request about
closing that place, he intended to put a
big light on the corner and surround the
place with officers, so that every one who
goes Into the building will be publicly
"Three cheers for a Mayor like that, I
say. I admire a man with a backbone
we all admire a man who does what he

Dr. Rader referred to the privilege vot

what they want a privilege not shared

ness of the Anti-Saloon League to let peo

If Yeu Fear Diphtheria Beware of a Cold,
The best authorities now agree that the
chances for contracting diphtheria are
greatly enhanced by colds. If the child
has a cold it Is much more likely to con
tract diphtheria. The same Is true of any
or tnc mucn-ureaaeo, catciung diseases.
The cold prepares the system for the re
ception and development of the germs of
these diseases; that Is why ono child will
contract a disease, and another exposed
at the same tlmo will not take it. Tho
one that takes it. as a rule, has & cold.
Even slight colds are dangerous, and
should have prompt and Intelligent atten
tion. Whether for a child Kr an adult
you will find no better preparation than
Chamberlain's Couch Remedy. It can al
ways be depended upon to effect a quick
cure. There is no danger In giving it to
children, as it contains no harmful drug.

Argued by Lawyers and Taken
Under Advisement by Court.
HINGES ON HER MEMORY
Attorney fcndcnhall Tells Judge
CIcland Aged Mother Could Xot
Have Given Good Description
"A -woman 73 years old who had been
ill for a long time, and confined to her
bed, could not bo expected to describe
from memory boundaries by motes and
bounds of 140 acres of land of a quarter of
section of land which sho owned."
This statement was made by Attorney
Al Mcndenhall beforo Judgo Cloland yes

the mother of the litigants.
S. H. Haines, the attorney who wrote tho
deed, testified that Mrs. Reeder gave him
the description and used no memorandum.
Mr. Mendenhall argued that this was Im
possible, and said there was not a per
son In the courtroom who could, after
having read the description over a num
ber of times, repeat it from memory.
He said the deed must have been pre
pared In J. L. Recder's house before Mr.
Haines went to see Mrs. Reeder.
J. L. Reeder under this deed gets all of
the land his mother owned except 20
acres. The other children assert that he
took advantage of his mother's falling
mind to Influence her to sign the deed.
A witness to the instrument testified that
Mr. Haines did not read it to Mrs. Reeder,
and Haines testified that he did read it to
Mr. Haines said ho told J. L. Reeder
about the deed, and J. L. Reeder testified
that he did not remember that Haines
told him that Mrs. Reeder executed the
deed, and did not know about the deed
until long afterward.
A large number of witnesses were called
on both sides to testify concerning the
mental capacity of Mrs. Catherine Reeder.
The defendant called 15. who testified
that her mind was as good as ever up
to the time of her death, and contradicted
evidence of plaintiffs to the contrary.

under the law and evidence, the deed
ought to stand.

Travel Now and Fifty Years Ago.
DRAIN. Or.. Jan. '3D. To tho Editor.)
Fifty years ago we old pioneers were glad
to hear the bell of the bell mule and pack
train coming into camp, with freight 4
to 6 cents a pound. Then came, ten years
later, the wagon, and freight 1 to 2 cents
a pound; and now railroads at Vi cent a
pound and less for same distance. In
those days wc rode horseback. After a
while came the stage, fare 10 cents a
mile, and hotels, cold and uncomfortable.
Now we have railroads, 3 cents a mile.
with cushion seats or chairs; also for a
little more cost a bed In a Pullman. You
even get meals as you go along in a
dining-car. Much difference In 50 years
and less. To read the growls on rates and
so on It would seem we soon forget.
Probably in the next few years $50,000,000
will be expended on new railroads, and
I think we ought to encourage Instead
of putting stumbling-blocks In the way
of these new railroads. Fare in New
York State Is 2 cents a mile, here 3 cents:
and we have only a handful of popula
tion, and In time competition and larger
population win matce things as cheap here
as there. james w. STERLING.
