the winter of 131-2, when letters came
from horns, telling me the Wviunn's Ciub
and Library Association had decided to
turn ofcr their library to the City Council
as a foundation for a Free Public Library.
Then came the thought of the necessity of
a building suitable for a Public Library
and Reading Room. I at once consulted
with my husband's sister, whose ready
eympathy and kind words assisted me in
my decision. I also received tho hearty
approval of my brother to go on with the
work, offering a ready hand to assist me in
carrying out my heart's desire. How well
he has performed his part, you all know
better than I can tell you. I wish here to
thank each one who has, by word or deed,
assisted me carrying out my plans. E
pecial thanks are due and gladly given Mr.
W. P.IIalliday, Mr. W. B. Gilbert aud Dr.

A feature of the exercises that does not
appear in the foregoing, wa3 a neat little
address by Mrs. Laura J. Rittenhouse, iu
which she presented to Mrs. Safford, in be
half of the citizens of Cairo, two bronze
statues representing Clio and Concordia,
Mythological characters. These statues
are about four feet high and are very grace
ful works of ait. They will occupy the ni
ches in the front wall of the building out
side, We regret that we could not produce
Mrs. Rittenhouse's nor Mayor Halhda'a
nor Rector Davenport's address in this
The building proper covers three lots,
though tho premises belonging to it and
surrounding it comprises half a square. It
is built in the Queen Ann style of architec
ture, a style that is unique and beautiful,
observed iu the constructure of some of the
principal institutions of art in the world.
It lias the form of a cross, with vestibule
in front, having a broad stair-cise on cither
side. The windows are a notable feature
of the building, being broader than they
are long, with three s ishen, and a circular
transom of stained glass protected from
without by wire screens. It lias a slate
roof, with ornamental iron cresting!. Its
brick walls are profusely decorated with
fancy terra cotta work. Tho window-sills,
cornices and gable ends (of which there
are there) are all of blocks of terra cotta,
and ornamental woik representing festoous
ot grape vines strung gracof'uily over doors
and windows, gives a finishing touch to
the outer walls, that has a most pleasing
effect. Near either corner of the front
wal's of the vestibule, outside, on a level
w ith the platforms of the stair-cases, is a
uiche, two by six, in which will be placed
bronzj statues provided by citizens at
the solicitations of several public-spirited
la lies. So much for the exterior.
Entering the building, you pass through
a wide doorway into the vestibule, and
from thence through another equally spa
cious opening, on either side of which is
also a niche for statues, into the hall.
Hire the object that will first rivet the
visitor's attention is a life size marble bust
of A. 15. Safford, deceased, standing upon a
bronze pedestal in a niche at the rear cud
of the hall. Trie niche is eight feet high,
his a cr.imon bick ground which brings
out clearly the outlines of the statue which
is protected in front by a single pane ot
French plate glass. The bust was manu
factured in Italy and brought over by Mrs.
Safford when she returned from her Eu
ropean tour. On this occasion, the base of
niche wa9 adorned with a bed of beautiful
ly natural flo .vers and evergreens, with two
huge bo'i'iets in vases oa either side; while
over hoa 1 were the last words spoken by
Mr. Siffn 1, 'Til Try," worked in ham
mered brass and set in a crimson velvet
frame, the work of Mrs. F. Korsuieyer.
To the left of the niche is the entrance to
the librarian's private room, which is fur
nished with wardrobe, toilette stand, etc,
and from this a door leads into the library
room. To the ruht ot the niche is the en
trance to the reference room.
On the left of the hall is the delivery
iclf. at which the public will bo served !
with books. It is an opening eight feet
wide an i about equally lontr. Has a cir
cular transom of turned spindles so as to
be open for ventilation, cassd in square
above with curved spindles. An orna
mental sliding screen is adjusted in the
casing, so as to be easily raised or lowered
when the delivery is to be opened or closed.
The library takes up all of the south wing;
it has twa hundred feet of shelving, seven
feet high. The shelving is placed along
the walls, and iu regular order on the floor.
Numerous gas jets will give all neaded light
at night, and three of those huge windows
admit light to every corner of the room by
On the right of the hall is the broad
stairway leading to the second tloor, and
mmcdiately back of this stairway is the
entrance to the reading room, which is fur
nished with tables and chairs of oak, and
on the walls of which are several steel en
gravings preseuted by Mr. II. II. Caudee
The stairway is over six feet broad, has
a low, ornamental baluster, aud wainscot-
ting of walnut, gum and oak, graduated so
a3 to give an attractive effect.
Upstairs to the left is the lecture room,
the largest in the building. Its ceiling is
nineteen feet high, finished iu oak on the
rafters. It has a seating capacity for two
hundred people and is furnished with the
requisite number of chairs, aud with plat
form, desk and a piano. A crayon draw
ing of Mr. A. B. Safford adorned the wall
back of the platform last night, 'over which
were placed, iu letters of evergreen, "Not
Words, but Deeds." From th'i3 room a
largo folding door leads into tho club room
of the W. C. aud L. A., aud over this door,
also in letters of evergreen, was tho club's
motto, "Dio et Literis." This room is
about fifteen by thirty feet in dimensions
and was furnished at tho direction mid
cost of tho W. C. end L. A. itself. While
all tho other rooms iu tho buildingjaro fur
nished in ornamental oak, this one is fur
nished in walnut. It contains, when in tho
usual order, a fancy desk, a table aud a
number of chairs. The walls are decorated
with pictures of noted literary men, and
Beveral beautiful Scenes produced by Mr,
E. M. Hough and prcsonted by him to the

paitof the building. Besides these pic
tures, there aro three or four brackets on
the walls, upon which stand large plaster
paris busts of Shakespeare, Benjamin
Franklin and others. The ladies havo also
purchased a large Smyra, reversable rug,
for the centre of this room. It is nine by
twelve feet in dimensions, and of elaborate
On the left of tho hall, up stairs, and in
front of the club room, is tho museum, in
which fifty feet of show cases stands upon
six or eight tables placed in regular order
in tho centre of the floor, besides several
large side cases. The show cases are all
filled with cuiiosities of various discriptioas.
each class to itself.
The circular transoms of the windows are
all finished off square inside, with carved
panels in spandrllls, and cases moulded,
with rosetts at the intersections. The doors
axe a special feature all with Urge tran
soms over them for ventilation, and nicely
finished off. They were designedly Mr.
Bayley, as were also the wainscotting,
paneling, hall ceiling and, in fact, all tho
carved wood finishings in the building.
The wainscotting in the hall,' stairway and
reading room is of beaded and fluted wal
nut, gum and oak, with heavy mould at
top and house. The riginal design was to
finish everything in pine, but Mr. Bayley
changed it with the best effect. Another
notable feature is that there isn't a particle
of paint used inside the building. All the
woodwork ispoliohed in oil.
A large cistern in the rear of the build
ing furnishes water which is conveyed by
one of Louis C. Herbert's Buckeye force
pumps to a huge tank, elevated so as to
furnish a free flow of water through a sys
tem of pipes that permiates all parts of the
The Lancaster it Rice Manufacturing
Company had the contract for putting up
the building, and their foreman, Mr. J. S.
Jenkins, deserves credit for tho admirable
manner in which they ex-cutcd their large
contract. They either manufactured them
selves or obtained from resident dealers,
everthing used in the cons'ruction of the
building, if it was possible to do so. The
stained glass and terre cotta work was
selected by Mr3. Safford herself and was
furnished by the Northwestern Terre Cotta
Works, of Chicago; and tho tables and
show cases were furnished by the Excelsior
Works, of Quincy, Ills. The gas fixtures
were furnished by the Cairo City Gas Com
pany; the plumbing was done by Mr. Louis
C. Herbert. Mr. Richard Walsh and Mr.
Henry Stout superintended the masonry
which was a very particular job; Mr. Wm.
M. Davidson did the galvanized iron work,
and the painting was done under the
supervision of Mr. George Devine.

The following poem was read by Mrs.
H. H. Csndee, President of the W. C. & L.
A., at the Safford Memorial Library presen
tation last night.
DEO ET LITEMS.

And let our eyes through ceiituries gaze
On countleM pictures clear and brlcht.

And those fair days when Earth was young
Through pre hWtorlc yean, to those
When emjis spoke and poeu sunt;.

While sweet Concordia attunes

And all the blessings of our erth
W ith fai'.h, hopo, chant and love,
And other priceless thing of worth.
Among them Memory best gift
A key to halls of noble grace
Which opens wide a treasure house
Where we may linger for a space.
Deo et Linn'i, motto Hi;h,
Our little band has striven to seek
Aud builded better than it knew
Fassing in years to strong from weak.
Giving to ns a stronger riew
Across the fertile landscape wide,
Opening a vista of doligLt
That fills our heart with grateful pride.
A stately templo high and grand
With many a lofty cclumu white
Aud shining dome of golden ray
And painted windows rich and bright.
Is literature our chosen theme
When student, scholar, sags and bard,
For ages long have wandered free
Nor lound Us polished pathways hard.
When Israel chanted songs of praise
Of old, tn her prophetic days,
Then tho foundation tnes wera laid,
And David In his psalms of praiss,
Was followed by the inspired tongues,
Who wrote ol wonders yet to be,
And the glad story of the cross
Was spread abroad o'er land and sea.
And many nations camo to aid
Iu building up the massive tiers,
Blind Iloinar and the Mantuan bard
And Northern skaldz, anil Aryau S cut's.
From tho wide desert's sandy plains
Tyraiutd and obelisk havo been won
To five thoir sambro scents up
And yield the mysteries of their stoues.
From where the Tyrlan purple shoae
Across Mare Intkhmixb'h blue,
And Alexandria's aud myriad towers,
Sighted the world with fiery hue.
From Hellas' and her ollvo groves,
Where trod philosopher and sage,
When sculpture, poetry and art,
IUmnad In turn the golden ago.
TJp to fair Britain's early dnys
When CVdtnon snug aud Uirda wrote
' Aud'Arthur his scathlcss knights
Gave to gay chivalry its note.
When Haldur In tho frozen North
Was matched by Spain's heroic C'lds,
And Troubadour and Trouvenr
Viod with the Neboluogon Lied.
With Dante In bis gloomy night
Through dim Tartarlon shades we rove
Aud gentle petlrarthi woudrous'fame
Ilrlngs nel'her bapptiiess.uor love.
When comes a shlnlnit Klaxy
That forms a cornice Arm sad strong
With Father I'hsucer at the head
And, centre of the brilliant throng,
Shakosoeare, the "mtrrial minded," shows
Hid mighty power, with suMle baud
Transporting us with muijlc touch
Into tie realms of fairy Uud.

Our wn young world presents her sh ire,

The ynaker poet calm and mild,
Irving and Hawthnrr.e. who yet live on.
And high above, like a flagging star,
Itadiant and ciwur, und sweet and strong,
The children's poet thrills our soul,
With themuivelous nidorty of his song.
Of all the solace that life afford
From the weary round of toil aud piln,
Nothing cm rest or strtngtheu ns more
Than an entrance into this'palace to gain.
Its halls are wide, itsjeys complete,
And a generous hand unbars a door.
Opening a portal hereto-night,
For high and low, rich and poor.
In memory of a coble heart
Who loved to help his fellow men,
Whose gentle spirit still lives on,
Although removed from mortal ken.
O, Brother, friend, now pissed away
What fonder tribute could be paid
To thy dear nuinery oflove,
Than this one that her hands have made.
No costly mausoleum grand
With gilded fame or fretted spire,
Conld llin.rrate so ell thy life,
And all thy noble heart's desire.
As this, that stretches forth a hand
To help and elevate mankind
Boarlng through long years yet to come
Tho earnest workings of thy mind.
Here eager youth and weary age
May lay their worldly burdens by,
And little children whom yon loved
May learn to say like you, "I'll try."
As years shall pass away, we trust,
The good example thou hast set,
Will raise and elevate our lives,
Aud bring us greater blessings yet.
May all these treasures thau didn't lovo
Books, pictures, rare and curious things.
I'p lift us to a higher plane,
Asbirds mount up on soaring wings.
May God, our Father, bless the thought,
That gives to ns this sacred place
And wisdom aid, and knowledge bring,
Our hearts the comfort of His grace.

After tho birth of my first child my
recovery was very slow, and it seemed to
me that I should never, get well again.
The doctors who treated me did not seem
to understand my case, or if they did, were
unable to restore mo to my former health.
I grew weaker and poorer for months and
thought I should die. Finally I was in
duced to try Merrell's Female Tonic, and
to my joy and surprise I found myself get
ting stronger almost from the first close, and
after using ono bottle I was as strong and
as well ever before. Respectfully,
