Augustana bulletin for the first quar-J
ter of the present year is Just out of
press and has many interesting feat
ures. This number is devoted to the
Denkmann Memorial library and con
tains about a hundred pages. Besides
numerous illustrations, numbering near
ly thirty, depicting every phase of the
building, exterior and interior, in pho
to, the book contains a full account of
all the exercises held in connection
with the magnificent library structure.
The first article is 8n historical sketch
by President Gustav Andreen, which
is followed by a biographical sketch
of the donors written by Dr. E. F. Bar
tholomew. The full program of the
laying of the corner stone is then giv
en, the addresses of Dr. G. A. Andreen
and Dr. W. S. Marquis upon that oc
casion being reproduced. Probably
one of the most interesting parts of
the bulletin is a report of the dedica
tory exercises. Here are recorded the
addresses of Professor C. L. Esbjorn,
Mayor H, M. Schriver, Dr. Edward T.
Horn, Professor Walter M. Smith, li
brarian of Wisconsin university, the
greetings of the several delegates from
different colleges and universities rep
resented, and an account of the deliv
ery of the keys and transfer of the
building to Hhe college. These books
will be ready for distribution within
the next few days. As the bulletin is
very neatly gotten up, much credit is
due the editor, Dr. E. F. Bartholomew.

The April American Magazine. The
April American magazine contains a
very remarkable character study of the
late Joseph Pulitzer, the blind propri
e'tor of the New York Wprld, who re
cently died, leaving a fortune of $20,-
000,000 or $25,000,000. The article is
by one of Mr. Pulitzer's secretaries,
and is accompanied by several unpub
lished photographs taken on the yacht
"Liberty," where for years and years
Mr. Pulitzer lived and worked most of
the time, assisted by a corps of read
ers and secretaries "whose combined in
tellectual vigor and capacity scarcely
matched that of their chief, who has
been called "the most amazing crea
ture in the world." It would take a
Robert Louis Stevenson to imagine
such a yacht and such a crew as Al
leyne Ireland, the author of this re
markable article, describes.
In the same issue of the American
Senator La Follette continues his auto
biography, and Ida M. Tarbell writes

ease through American prisons.
Inez Haynes Gillmore writes another
Phoebe and Ernest story; Edna Ferber

story, and James Oppenheim, Clifford

full of fresh facts and ideas.
