The Brrt ei'n will be at Spartan

is t1ouiht it will save expenses
and the committee finds that it has a
tight hold there on witnesses and has
already material enough to begin
The purpose is to do what work i;

thinks it unfair to the committee for

offering to help prove the charges.
The chief work of the committee
today, in fact about the only thing
that was done other than canvass the
situation and the work done, was to
arrange to borrow additional money.
The committee was voted S3,ooo out
of the dispensary fumds when it be
gan work. it has spent nearly all of
this money, but the committee thinks
that it has now gone so far that it
must either throw up the sponge or
borrow money with which to push the
work and pay the expenses of the
witnesses it is expected to summon.
and the other expenses that have
been provided for.
The committee feels that it is war
ranted in arranging for additional
money on the ground that it is nec
essary and that what money has
thus far been spent has been conser
vately expended, an'd that whatever
may be the result of the investiga

Care Of Books.
Marginal notes are usually super
fluous and undesirable.
Corners should not be turned down
or leaves folded in halves.
Exposing books to heat or strong
* sunlight warps the binding.
Never bend back the covers of a
.book, but keep them both level.
Do not turn a book on its face or
place any weight on an open book.
Never open a large book from the
ends or cover. but from the center.
Bookcases should not be placed
against outside walls on account of
the probable dampness.
A blunt knife of ivory, wood or
metal should be used for cutting new
books, not a sharp instrument.
If any liquid be spilt on a bok. wipe
it off at once gently with a soft
cloth or absorb it w~ith blotting paper.
Do noc dry it by a fire.
Dragging a book out from the shelf
by the b:nding at the top is hurtful.
N books are wedged in too tightly
if! a case they become shabby.
