The Courier reporter had occa
sion In visit the post library of tho
Stih rtsdmrnt and was agreeably
surprised to nolo what ait un-lo-date
institution 111, Judged from
the standpoint of equipment and
otherwise. Tho largo number of
soldiers In attendance was a true
index Into tho deep interest that Is
being manifested, as welt as tho
ttmttgrsl evidence of thorough ap
preciation of Uie advantage offered
by this splendid library. Mag.v
tines of every description and dally
papers of alt large cities are re
ceived on yearly subscription. Tho
efficiency of tho stair, consisting of
Librarian James MacDougall nnd
his two able atslslanls, Jerrel Fos

Mone. The service, they glvo Is of
tho iMiilest and tho very highest.
