Report us librarian in which she
Jshowed that the incrcaso in patron

enal and that since September the
borrowers had increased from 6T
jta 402, showing the added interest,

I Mr. Sidwell read the treasurers re-'
port, showing what had been done
'with the money so far received und
tho balance in the treasury, which
was a small -sum. However, it was

ismall funds at hand. It was also
ahown that tho bill of tho library
3uui been paid with tho exception of
:f25.00 of the January salary of the
librarian, and that she had received
so far no salary for February. Tho
committee however, stated that these
items would be taken caro of by sub

the paying subscribers would not be
called upon after this month.

appropriation of $50.00 a month be.
made, beginning with March 1st and
ending July 1st, to support the li

support of the library will come be
fore tho people at the Juno election.

change asked for in the G. A. R.
cemetery for street purposes, nnd
stated that the G. A. R. would agree
