They ar lighter draft and easieron the horses.
The step-oyer is the lowest and narrowest

the great gift to the city by Mr. Bixby,
the work that had been done and gave a
dcscription of the building, and intro-
duced as the first speaker Congressman
Frank L. Greene of St. Albans, who
made a short address. The speaker
deplored the fact that the state pos
sessed no "History of Vermont," and
outlined a plan by which through organ
tzation and a labor of love such a work
could be written.
Judge Fish tlion introduced President
John M. Thomas of Middlebury college,
as the nrincinal speaker. President
Thomas held the close attention of his
audience in n scholarly, convincing ad
dress in which lie told of the things thut

who died in 1907. The library is on
Main street in the center of the city on
a high bluff commanding a fine view of
Otter creek and the Adirondack moun
tains. The grounds on which the
library building stands formerly be
longed and was the site of the residence
of Chief Justice John Pierpoint. From
the balcony on the west side a view is
afTorded of the basin below the falls,
made famous as the place where, under
the supervision of Commodore McDon
ough in the winter of 1814, the fleet
was built, with which he won the
memorable naval battle near Platts
burg, N. Y.
The building is of yellow tapestry
brick, with Indiana limestone pillars
and trimmings in white. There are
cement walks in front and driveways at

trees and later shrubs and vines will be
Running the whole length of the west
side of the building is a large porch,
from which a remarkably fine view can
be obtained of the foot hills of the
Adirondacks and the high peaks of
Mount Marcy and White Face. From
here, too, at certain seasons of the
year, as the sun sinks behind the dis
tant peaks of the Adirondacks, are to
be seen sunsets that rival in beauty,
and travelers who have seen both say
surpass, the famed ones of Italy. This
porch is accessible only through the
reading room on the first iloor and the
assembly room on the second floor.
The first floor contains a vestibule,
a rotunda under stained glass dome,
with mosaic floor, a large light reading

smooth steel with glass floors and a
small stair case running from the base
ment to the upper floor. A book lift
also runs from the basement to the top.
There is a marblo stairway to the
second floor, which has a gallory around
the open space under the dome.
The second floor contains an assembly
room over reading room, the trustees'
room, conversation room, study room,
