. I he library room was the scene, on
Friday afternoon at three o'clock, of a
most gritirying and interesting episode
in the history of the
WOMAN'S tl.CM A NO I ILK KY ASVt I A.
At Ihe request ot the young ladies and
gentlemen of the Juvenile Wide Awakes,
a special meeting ol the W. C. and L.L.A
had been called by the president, and the
greater number or the member ol both
associations, together with a few friends
who were aware ol the interesting oc
casion, gathered in the pleasant and taste
ful room to participate In a delightful
A lew moments after the appointed
hour, the meeting was called to order by
the president of the Library Association,
who remarked that she was u.:ablc to ex
plain the object of the meeting fully, and
referred the explanation of it to the
president of the Juvenile Wide Awakes,
who occupied the platform at her left.
In the center ol the platform, upon a
table, stood soiue mysteriously veiled ar
ticles, which the audience regarded with
eager interest. At the conclusion ol the
introductory remarks, Miss Bcttie Kor
meyer stepped forward and delivered the
I'RESKNT ATION SI'KECII :
Mm. President and
Ladies of the Library As-
Allow mo to express my heartiest
thanks in the name ot our club to the
president, Mrs. Candee, tor calling this
meeting together, and giving us this op
portunity to tuliiil a w ish lor w hich mo
ment we have all looked forward with
great anxiety. Our weak effort to aid in
ornamenting this hall was crowned with
success, and well may 1 say that we feel
proud to be able to-day to give more
than mere words or promises, ibrough
tne aiuu advice oi Jir. saiioru, wc were
directed to Boston to procure wbat we
wished, aud no one belter could we think
of to aid us in our selection than Dr.
Mary Saflord-BIake, through whose
kindness we succeeded In procuring these
busts of Shakespeare, Humboldt, Frank

who well deserve to ornament tills
institution of which wc are all so proud.
.nay tins utile silt irom latin lolks give
you all as much pleasure and satisfaction
as the work lor this purpose gave th
Juvenile Wide Awakes. And here I
wish to express the thauks ot the whole
club to Messrs. Safford and Hyslop for
tneir great Kindness extended to us.
During the clear and forcible delivery
of this address by the young president ot
the Wide Awakes, and just at the names
of the pieces, they were unveiled by-
Misses Jennie Schutter and Clara Rob-
bins, and a
Ml'R.MUR Ot ADMIRATION
Ran through the audience at the beauti
ful and munificent addition to the Inter
esting anJ valuable objects al
ready contained in the room
la reply to Miss Korsmeyer's ad
dress, Mrs. Candee spoke as follows:
Miss President and young ladies and gentlemen
oi me .luvenne w lde .Awakes:
In behalf of the Woman's Club and
Library Association to w hich yoH have
just presented your graceful, appropri
ate and most generous gift, allow me to
thank you most heartily tor it, and tor
this great proof of your interest in the
association aud its work, and to assure
you of the grateful appreciation of its
members, and their warm admiration of
your own endeavors toobtaiii in the days
ot your youth a culture that w ill ennoble
and purify your own lives, and prove a
blessing to your friends and the world.
An invitation was then given to all
EXAMINE TnE STATUARY
and loud and cordial were flic expres
sions of admiration from those who
crowded around the stand. The luis
areola heavy composition, dazzling
white, having the appearance of marble,
and the faces are all remarkably perlect,
natural and hcaittilul. The ladies who
are the delighted recipients ot sueli a
noble and unexpected gilt, are indeed
most grateful to the geuerous young
folks who are so "wide awake" to the
value of the true aud the beautiful, as
well as those outside of the club w ho so
kindly assisted In the cnterprlsj. The
which explains itself, will be read with
interest by all the friends of tho writer
and those to whom it was addressed;

Tj Mid Komuieyer and Miss Jeuuie Sahutter:
My Dkar Yoino Ladies : Your note
has been duly recelveJ. 1 hastened to
execute your commission to the best of
my judgment. It seemed to me that
busts of literary, historic and scientific
persons would be more Inspiring than
pXces of mythological character or those
fancy ones drawn from tho brains ot
poets. I trust my selection will meet
ttie approval of all concerned. It c?ined
to me most appropriate that the king of
drama, "the lirst In all literature,"
Shakespeare should have a prominent
place in your hall, as also Humboldt, the
prince of scientists, who, like hlmke
peare, belongs to all n..tions. as his work
to all time. Our own Ben Franklin
always has In store for us srood precepts
and practise w hich it would be well for
the youths of America to know and
heed. He ouce said : "My rulo is to go
straight forward in doing what appears
to me to be right." No one can over
look upon the face of Charles Sunnier
without remembering what a truu f riend
he was to the oppressed, and how man
fully be always stood for justice and
equality for man as for woman. 1 am
very much pleased that the young peo
ple of Cairo are interesting themselves
in such good works. We never know
what gtand results may grow from 6mall
beginnings, so persevere in doing the
most possible to cultivate your own
talents in using them for tho best good ot
yourselves and others.
Very truly yours,
Mary J. Safford-Blake

We clip the following from tho Padu
cah AW : "The Harmon io society
held meeting last night at Lebrer's hall,
the purpose being, as staled in jester
day's -Vu, tho fixing ol a day for their
proposed visit to Cairo. Tuesday next
was selected for the trip, and r ureent
request made that all Members of the
society who desire faking a put should
bo In attendance upon a rehearsal inue!
Ing Friday nlht. The soeiet, will j-o
on the fayoiltc Jimmy Fi-k, and will r.o
doubt be attended by quite ntt ex nr-lot,

Of failing energy, that to which the
lagged out man of bnim's-, the brain
fatigued author, the tired advocate or the
weary nrti.--.ui can resort with tho im-at-
est certainty that it will revivu his over
wrought powers, is Hostctter's Stotn
ali bitters, a most gonial tonic cordial,
as well as a benign reinodv for disorder
of the stomach, liver, bowels and urinary
orgi'tis, and a means of r radicating and
preventing Intermittent mil remittent
fevers. It not only enriches the Mood
ana creates a new fund of e nergy In the
system, but it has the t-U'ect of expelling
Impurities from the li to current which
beget disease. Tho injurious inlliifnco
oi aorupt transition of temperature, of an
unwholsoine climate and injurious diet,
are counteracted by it, and it promotes
digestion, appetite and sound re
