PUBLIC SCHOOL LIBRARI[S
There ar Now over 800 and Probab

"Since the public school library
law was enacted about two years and
a half ago, nearly 800 libraries have
been established in places where none
had eKisted before,' said State Super
intendent 0. B. Martin. "Many of
those have enlarged and improved.
The number should reach the 1,000
mark by the close of this year. When
a library is once established, it should
be increased every year. The act
was amended to provide for this very
thing, and also to provide for a suit
able book case for the Ebraries.
"The case adopted by the State
board of Education is a bargain for
$10. I have had many inqniries as
to whether the library books and book
cases can be bought Iv individual
citizens at the contract price. I am
very glad that such is the case. I
am also very much gratified that the
libaries in the schools have improved
the libraries in the homes.
rAis community in this state can
raise $10 in order to secure $30 worth
of good books, and an elegant book
case. I have heard of many instances
where the teachers appointed com
mittees of pupils and they raised
more than the required amounts in a
few hours. Again I have heard of
the money being raised by meais of
entertainments, such as dialogues.
readin-s, eharades, etc.
"It is very easy to get patrons to
eontribute refreshments and provis
ious, and $10 can be raised at one
time by means of a dinner or supper.
There are numerous othe ways which
have been devised by earnest. pro
gressive teachers. Let us continue
this good work with renewed energy
during the coming session.
"Before ordering a library, the li

Whin the money is collected in the
community. the trustees should de

take his receipt. and dyaw a warrant

and Figures About the Service.
Washington, Special.-At the an- a
nual convention of the National Ru
al Letter Carriers' Association which a
was held at Peroria, Ill., a letter was p
submitted from P. V. DeGraw, Fourth
Asistant Postmaster General, regret- G
ting his inability to attend the con
vention. The communication recites
the status of rural delivery through- ,
out the country, and instances itz h
many advantages to farmers, not only a
from the viewpoint of the accomoda- e
tion, but from its great educational
influence, the improvement of roads, b
and the palpable increase in the value
of lands, and points out how by co
operation with the Department, rural
carriers may aid in minimizing the P
many vexatious problems which sur- 0
round the establishment and mainten- t
ance of the service. The letter, in
part, is as follows: t a
"It is costing the government over t)
$2 a year for each of the 13.500,000 n
persons now receiving the service, but 12
there is no doubt that the expendi
ture is fully justified by the results p
obtained. It is generally conceded 0
that rural delivery of mail has been E
a leading factor in the great increase
in the value of farm lands and rural s
real estate in all parts of the country. c
Some remarkable reports of increased 3
land values have been received and in
nearly every case the advance is at
tributed to the beneficial effect of
rural delivery. C
"The amount of money appropriat
ed by Congress for the rural delivery 0
service for the current fiscal year is G
