EDITED IS THB INTEREST OF TUB CAIRO
The entertainment to bo given by tho
Library Association on tho occasion of its
seventh anniversary, March Cth, 1882, prom
ises to be one of unequal excellence. A
very interesting programme is being pre
pared, both musical and literary, and our
best home talent will take part. The enter
tainment will take place in the Methodist
church, and will bo like those preceding
it, an event to be looked forward to with
interest, and remembered with pleasure.
Mrs. Marvin Adams, the efficient assist
ant librarian of the Public Library was
called home suddenly last week by the ill
ness of her mother. Her place will be fill
ed while she is absent by Mrs. Joseph
Wenger, who will assist Mrs. Powell in her
work at the library.
An interesting report of the Indianapolis
Public Library has recently been received
by the secretary of tho Library Association.
The Indianapolis Public Library is support
ed by tho levy of an annual tax of two mills
on tho dollar, and is a part of tho public
school Bystem, and a most valuable
auxiliary thereto. On tho organization of
the Public Library, it received a valuable
donation of 4,000 volumes being the entire
collection of tho ''Indianapolis Library As
sociation." This society of public spirited
citizens had for years been gathering to
gether, by much exertion and self sacrifice,
a collection of books, which by their gener
ous and munificent donation became the
nucleus of tho full public library. In Sept.
1880 tho library was transferred to a new
and commodious buildings which included
a reading room, book room, work room,
librarian's room, patent referenco room and
offices for use of tho school btmrd. Small
referenco libaries wero placed iu fourteon
of tho larger school buildings, including
the Encyclopedias, world's altas, natural
history, etc., etc., which Boon becamo popu
lar with tho school children, and greatly
increased tho interest iu and uso of tho li
brary. Tho reading room iB furnrahed with
seveuty-fivo of tho bcBt leading literary
journals of tho world, and, bcinu comforta
ble, well lighted and opeu day and evening,
furnishes a deBirablo and popular place for
young people to spend their time, sur
roundod by its best influences. Tho man
agement of tho library is in tho hands of
competent and exporiencod citizens, ladies
and gentlemen, and is already on a footing
in point of efficiency and usefulness, with
similar institutions of much greater age.
The Indianapolis library now coutainsSl,
827 volumes and 3,208 pamphlets, careful
ly seloctod from different departments of
literature. Ths reading room has an av
erage daily attendance of 330, and, for its
size, conveniences and liberal supply of
American and foreign periodicals, has few
superiors in this country. What has been
accomplished in Indianapolis can also be
done elsewhere. The lato gratifying action
of tho Cairo council, respecting tho offer of
tho Woman's Club and Library association
to transfer its books as tho foundation of a
free public library and reading room for
the city of Cairo, is an indication that the
time is not far distant when wo shall possess
an institution, creditable to tho city and to
tho association, which has, for seven years
of patient, persistent effort, held this end
Mrs. Annie L. Downs read a very inter
esting lecture upon Westminster Abbey,
before the Rhode Island Woman's club,
on Wednesday, Jan. 3. Tho attendance
was large, and the boautifull paper was

Ik you want to read a sensible, instruc
tive, and elevating book, go to any library
and ask for the one that is called for the
least. Tho Judge.
One of the brightest, sweetest and most
wholesome books for young girlhood, in tho
library, or indeed in pvint, is Mrs. Whitney's
"A Summer in Leslie Goldthwaito's Life."
Liko all else Mrs. Whitney has written, its
teachings are the purest, and its fancy as
delicate as it is instructive.
Miss Alcott's "Moods" her first book
which was so cruelly cut up and altered
by tho publisher who issued it that its
drift and teaching were quite different from
what the author intended has been re
published by Messrs. Roberts Bros., with
the omit'ed passages restored, with some
other passages omitted, and with its de
noument changed. The book lias been for
some time out of print, wo believe; at
least, iu its present form it will bo practi
cally anew book to tho multitude of read
ers whom Miss Alcott has won since alio
mado this first venture in literature, and
who will sympathize with tenderness which
she feelsjfor her first book.
Mrs. Helen Ekin Starrett has just
entered upon her third year as editor of
I the Western Magazine, which under her
careful management, is rapidly growing in
popular favor. The Western Magazine has
already a circulation of 15,000 copies; it
is handsomely illustrated, and contains only
the best literary Jtliouglit of the day.
Mrs. Starrett is president of tho Illinois
social science association, and lectured
Cairo, last May.

Oscar Wilde appeured recently in Brook
lyn. At'tor tho lecture ho submitted, as
usual to the newspaper interviewer. The
reporter found Mr. Wilde in the dressing
room, "half sitting on tho 'marble topped
table, drawing off his kid gloves." He ex
pressed himself so well pleased with tho
Uuited'Statcs tho men and women of
America are splendid, be declared as be
ing fond of the excitement of the lecture
field, as having been delighted with his
Boston audience, in spite of the sixty Bun
thornes, and as being unalterably averse to
traveling, punctually and time tables.
His Brooklyn address, taken as a whole,
appears to have been a success. Tho lec
ture hail been announced on yellcw posters
printed in green letters, and tho stage ap
pointments wrc Wildean in the highest de
gree, liiestago represented an esthetic
Irawing room, opening out upon a balcony
overlooking a Florentine garden scene.
There was a carpet of gorgeous pattern in
primary colors. The furniture was of ebony
of Queen Anno stylo, upholstered in plush.
There was a Japaneeso scrence and an
ebony pedestal bearing a vaso filled with
autumn leaves, out of which there rose a
withered and bilious sun flower. A plaque
painted with a "design of arbutus flowers
rested upon another pedestal, aud there
was a cushioned easy chair, '.the frame of
which was made of the decorated and pol
ished horns of Texas steers. The scenery
represented satin-hung walls, with great
i?ilt cupies aver the sido doors.
The lecturer, who was rather late in
making his appearance, was dressed in knee
breeches, black silk stockiugs, low patent
leather pumps almost without heels and
tied willi a bunch of black silk ribon,a
swallow-tail coat, a low cut, doubled
breasted Marseilles vest, Marseilles shirt,
low turn-down collar, and voluminous
white stain necktie with fringed ends, lie
wore a single stud, in which wero set two
milky pearls and a diamond, and a rich fob
chain hung below the edge of his vest.
Tho audienco was quiet and intelligent,
and applauded occasionally during tho
lecture. Some hilarious individuals in tli.i
outside circles admonished tho lecturer,
before his appearunce, to "urry 'hupp, Hos
car," but duridg the course of tho address
the whole audienco was decorous and at
