For the New Carnegie Library.
Perry R. Conn today began the re
moval of the two buildings on the site
of the Carnegie library, on Ferry Street,
to the lot on Third street the corner
building to be at the west side ot the
lot and the building on the alley to be
at the east side ot the inside lot. This
leaves the Ferry street lot 67 by 101,W
feet for the library, which will be
placed in the middle of the lot, facing
Ferry street. The size of the building
is not yet determined, but it will need
a depth of at least 55 feet, and the
frontage will probably be more than
that. The liberality of Mr. and Mrs.
Young in giving the Ferry street lot
for the library will be generally appre
ciated. There will be ample room for
a neat lawn at each end and the main
entrance and step3 in front.
Plans for the structure with evidence
of the transfer of the property will be,
when prepared, transmitted to the Car
negie people for approval, before ac
tual work can be begun on the struc

The Minstrels.
A large crowd enjoyed the perform
ance of Richards and Pringle's minstrels
last night. They are the oldest of all
of them, at lease thirty years, and one
fellow. Watts, sang, who has been with
the Company twenty-three years. The
scene in opening is the front of a St.
Augustine, Fla., hotel, and the songs
are darkey frivolities, full of good
voices. A Henroost Raid is a socond
part novelty, with genuine hens and
roosters, aided by human "crows."
Mr. Schultz says the minstrels per
sonally were the cleanest lot of people
who have been in the theater, a bier
difference between them and some of
the white companies, abiding strictly by
the house rales, leaving no tobacco
juice or cigarette stumps in the back
part of the honse, nothing broken or
stole, and no whiskey bottles. Well
behaved, clean lot of men, and their
managers, Holland & Filkins, are

Broadhead, Wis. They had a big time
up in thi jwoode, making the trees shake

made Miss Geddes the mother ot the
four Lathrop girls, a joke appreciated.

That was certainly a novo! party given
by Misses Louise Pirtle and Juanita
Riley, during all of last night, in honor
of Miss Helen Gilbert, who is to leave
next week for Portland to begin her
studies at the Good Samaritan Hospital
as a professional nurse. Just a dozen
were in it, and it was a complete
surprise to the young lady. At 9 o'clock
tnere was a theater party, followed by
a pocial session until 12, when the party
went to the arbor ot tne at. Unarlea,
prettily illuminated with electric lights,
where a feast of fried chicken, roasted
corn, hot biscuits and marmalade was
enjoyed until 2 o'clock, when tho party
retired for the night, in bunks, on the
spot, under the canopy of the heavens,
enjoying intense sleep, more or less, for
two hours, arising at 4 o'clock, taking a
walk to tho home of Miss Riley, on Hill
street, where a four course breakfast
was engaged heartily, when the girls
departed for their homes, delighted with
the novelty of tho experience.
