GIFT FOR MONMOUTH COLLEGE
Andrew Carnegie Offers $30,000 for Li
brary, but With a Proviso.
Monmouth college is in receipt of a
letter from Andrew Carnegie offering
to give $30,600 for the erection of a
library for the Institution provided a
like sum is raised to carry it on after
it is built.. Mr. Carnegie did not take
the initiative in the matter, as repre
sentations had been made to him of
the need of a library by officers of the
college. It was pointed out that $50,-
000 would be acceptable, but Mr. Car
negie considered that sum larger than
necessary for a college of its size.

That the popularity of the interur-
ban road does not wane with the end
of the season of summer resorts when
sweltering residents of the cities cease
to take every opportunity to seek re
fuge in the coolness of the woods is
shown by the I. & I. between .Daven
port and Clinton. The unmistakable
signs of fall have brought littlefor no
diminution in the business of this line
in passenger travel by residents of the
cities and it is being used more and
more by the farming communities
through which it passes as a means of
reaching market. The express car is
carrying good loads on every trip and
this business, once established, will
last the year round.
But to the pleasure seeking city peo
ple the line offers greater attractions
than ever now that autumn is at band.
The scenery is enhanced in beauty and ;
the breath of the woods is fragrant
and bracing. Nutting parties are com
ing in vogue and will be popular
through October. It has also been dis
covered that the I. & I. furnishes
ready means of access to new and in
viting fishing grounds along the Mis
sissippi and the W'apsie. particularly
the latter, and daily parties fitted out
with apparatus to lure and capture the
finny creatures may be seen boarding
north bound cars.
During the summer the roadbed has
been ballasted and made equal to the
best in the country, and renders abso
lutely safe the quick schedule now followed.
