Salem's Public Library
Grows Steadily In Favor
The Salem public library contains
about two-thirds of a book to -every
person living in the city, estimating
the population, at 17,000, according to
the report for the year 1915 recently
issued by the librarian. Miss Anne D.
Several interesting facts regarding
the library are shown by this annual
report. One is the greater interest be
ing taken as shown by the average
daily attendance. In lit 1.1 it was 5S, in
1914 this average had grown to S4 and
i last year it was 113.
j Although the circulation of the libr
ary for 191.1 was 53,S"2, yet from this
; total number only lo9 books wore miss
ing and this was due possibly to the
fact that a few books wore taken out
j without being registered at the desk.
I Kach year the circulation grows.
! Last year was 5til." larger than the year
i before and 4."i99 larger than the ban
ner year of the library, 191.1.
A book hospital is part of the reg
ular equipment. Hooks are not only
rebound, but they are varnished, mend
ed and brought into proper condition to
he placed on the shelves. In fact, the
hospital department of tho library
cared for tho re-binding of 220 books
and the mending of 1200.
School children are becoming active
patrons of the library. Last year the
circulation from the city schools was
29,".j9, showing an increase of 3070
over the preceding year.
Philosophical readers, or rather those
interested in philosophy arc rather
in the citv and vicinitv. At-
though 3872 adult books were issued in
Januarj - , 1!1. -, only 48 were interested
in philosophy. Readers of the useful
arts are also scarce as onlv 89 books
on theso subjects were issued last
December, which was about the month
ly average for the year.
I Books on religious topics were not
in demand to any very great extent.
The greatest call for these books was
in February ISMo, when 40 were cir
culated. The desire for religious rend
ing was lowest last July, when 13
books were called for.
Readers of fiction find January the
best month to read. In January of
1913 exactly 28,")2 books of fiction were
circulated with February as the next

Plant Pathology department of the O.

of loss each year in the state of Ore-I

necessary since this disease can be sat
isfactorily controlled with one spraying
given at the proper time of year, as the
experience of a great number of grow
ers in all parts of the state indicates.
This article is written for those who in
the past have failed to control t.iis dis
ease and for those who will have this
disease to contend with in their newly
planted orchards. The writer is confi

grower can control this disease to his
own satisfaction if he follows careful-lv-

whole leaf may be effected. In fact
the whole twig niav be affected, but in
other instances there may occur only a
few separate patches of leaf surface af
fected by the disease. By the middle of
the spring the surfaces of these dis
torted leaves become powdery with the
spores or reproductive bodies of fun-
Igus which are being discharge .1 at this
time. These are carried bv air currents
nil through the .-orchard and will even
tually result in the infection of the
next season. After discharging their
spores, the leaves that are infected
shrivel up and hang, deafl and brown,
to the branches for a long time. Great
injury is done where a large per cent
age of the. leaves on a peach, tree are
effected even though the tree may put

incnts are now under way at the Ore

whether or not. this is true under Ore
gon conditions as well. Whatever is the
results of these tests may be, it is the
experience of Oregon growers that 1
thorough aplijation given within two
weeks before the opening of the buds
will have successful results. We recom
mend, therefore, at the present time,
that the peach grower spray their trees

buds are expected to begin to come out.

MY IDEAL GIHL
An ideal girl is hard to find.
There's few in this wido world;
But when a fellow falls in love,
It's alwav-s the Tdeal Girl.
The one which I have now in mind,
Is the Ideal Girl for me.
Perhaps to some she'll not appeal,
Our tastes are unlike you see.
Her eyes are blue and filled with tho't,
Her hair is light and brown:
Her teeth arc white, her lips are red,
Her skin as soft as dawn.
She always feeds we hungry boys,
On pies and cakes and fruit.
Her motto is, to please the man.
"Just feed and stuff the brute."
Around her home she is alert,
To keep things clean and bright.
And when sho cooks n meal with pies,
It always taste's iust right.
j She lies a smile for everyone,
Who ha opens to come her way.
1 A companion to boys and girl-s alike,
A friend to all each day.
'Her morals are high, her tho't-s are
For she is a girl of prayer,
And everyone she does inspire,
! She influences unaware.
! . VIII.
I Her faith and works are in her God,
In church -lie does her part;
j Her talent everyone admires,
i For music is her art.
She never dances or play the cards,
Winch lead one from the church,
And modesty she ne'er forgets,
From truth she never shirks.
There is so much 1 'd like to say
About this Meal Girl,
That 1 believe that 1 could keep
On writing forever more.
But I will close with just one word,
A prayer for my Ideal Girl,
May God in heaven keep her pure,
From the stains of the outside world.
