The Work of The Library.
A meeting of tbe members of the
library was held at tbe home of Mrs. F.
L. Houghton last evening. This was
the regular annual meeting, and election
of officers took place. So well had the
work of the present officers been done
that all were desirous of retaining them,1
but such was not the will of tbe ladies
in qnestion and the offices are to be
lied as follow 8 during the coming year:'
enea out ot tneir peaceful slumbers in
tbe night last night were persuaded that
the "wind bloweth where itlisteth" and
we have heard of a few who took to the
basement, making up their minds to
build a cyclone cellar today, unless the
wind had all blown away by morning.
Others came to the conclusion that they
had the ague, at least they were a little
shaky. The "zephyrs" still continued
tc make their presence felt today, much
to the disgust of the girl with bangs, who
bad also a hat to hold on, a dress to hold
up, numerous packages to carry and her
self to keep on the sidewalk. If there's
one thing The Dalles excels in its wind,
and its citizens are compelled to "be
blowed." However, we are told it is our
salvation, keeping the place healthful
and the atmosphere clear.
By Special Request.
Mrs. Dr. Frank, tbe celebrated eye
specialist, will devote Sunday from 2 to
5 o'clock to the examination of the eyes
of those who are unable to come ou any
other day. From 1 to 3 she will devote
her time cheerfully to those who may
be unable to pay, and will give any
treatments which may be required free
of charge. Room 38, Chapman block.
ness calling npon him for light. The
mayor's veto of the light ordinance was
then read, and a silence followed, which
showed that each was studying the ques
tion or had already decided the only
course to take, and a vote being taken
Clough, Johns, Gunning, Stephens,
Barnett and Butts voted for, and Kuck
and Keller against. No diecussion of
the matter was had, but everything
passed off very pleasantly.
" Now that the counciHuts "done what
j seemed their duty to the city in regard
to this matter, the only qnestion arising
is, can the mayor and recorder, who have
the contract to arrange with the Electric
Light Company, come to a satisfactory
agreement with them? It is thought no
difficulty will arise in'tbis matter, and
that lights are now assured.
Many are inquiring as to the length of
time it will require to place them io
position. We are Informed by Mr.
French that it will require a month at
least ; the exact time cannot be esti
mated. The following bills were presented and

The work7 accomplished during the
past year was very gratifying to the
members and has also been appreciated
by those who have shared in its fruits.
The money raised from tbe special edi
tion, gotten out some time since, has been
expended very judiciously, and to the
books which the library already con
tained 210 have been added, and -the
number will be raised to about 300 in a
few days. The expenses have also been
paid up to date, leaving the association
in a good condition financially.
The ladies have worked diligently and
deserve credit as well as encouragement.
New members should be taken in every
day, as no admission fee is charged, and
but 25 cents a month does.
