to resist tne epreadiug notion that
the uewspuptr is to be a mere pur

press to futility ana impotence, even
as they would the pulpit from

That the press may greateu its

Fili to be enjoyed must be fresh,

was doled out, aud the ice cream and

in the matter of pstr. nage, tbe
newcomers were esptcally generous,
aud gave endence of their apprecia

it was to them in th books, papers
and maguziues thus made available.
The ladies having tbe work in baud

that in less than three years, with
out a dollar to start with, they have
purchased tbeir lot, auu erected the
tine Library building, aud now have
tbe same paid for, wiib a surplus iu

Tbe ladies intend now to add some
new book; to tbe shelves, aud thereby
make the Library a center of itill
greater interest for our townspeople

lu this connection The Examiner
is aware that iu tooie commuuities
tbe citizens donate books to the li

not so fortunate. It ia a good prac
