Since the new free public library build ing was opened it has been besieged from morning till far into the evening with book fanciers, mostly young people, The librarians and assistants have been kept busy during every minute of the time dur ing which the building has been open, The rush for books upon the first few days was enormous; and the number of books given out each day since the new building was opened has been almost as large as the lareest number given out upon any day of the preceding year. Last Saturday 1U books were given out, and upon the Saturday after the blizzard about 1,000 dooks were taKen Dy inose wno neia ciroa- lation cardg- The ,an ha8 oeased some- what now and the librarians consider that the circulation has nearly settled down to its usual figure The cause for this great increase in the circulation during the past few days was, of course, the closing of the library entirely during the period of its re moval irom toe out to tne new Duuaing. This occupied only a few days, but the in crease which followed the reopening of the library was a remarkably good test of the popularity which the library has gained among all classes, of citizens and of the great interest which is taken m it. The new building seems to please the patrons of the library in every respect.The manner of obtaining 'books is simplified and rendered much more easy. The three entrances to the building in place ot tne one in the old building renders crowding at all times out of the question, and the spacious hall within and the absence of a long flight of steps to climb, are the most pleasing features to the ladies who come ? i i jY'i. .1 : lor UUUKS. Alio rooUiUK IWWBIireuiin; furnished with convenient paper, desks I and chairs and will accommodate Hundreds lf readers. The ventUationisbadandhas been complained I of by -many, but this will soon be remedied, as the directors believe, by a plan which the building committee is The day upon which the most books are taken from the library is Saturday. Upon this day the school children, who are among the most constant book takers, flock by the hundreds and Librarian Stet son and his assistants are kept very busy by the little ones. Most of them know just how to obtain their books and just what books they want and they do not need scarcely more attention than tne older book takers. After school hours in the- afternoon and in the early morning is aJ8 W time at the prary with the children. Most of them take light stones of notion by the popular writers of -juvenile stories and this branch of the library's circulation is a large and active one. During the afternoon and evening is also a time when the young ladies come to the library in large numbers. They are among the steady patrons of the library and se lect their books with a great deal ot delib eration and jare. They fancy, as a rule, the current novels, and rarely take a book twice, as is often the case with the chil dren. Standard works of fiction by the popular novel writers 'are among the books which it is always hard to find in the li brary, and they never have an opportunity to get dusty upon the shelves. In fact, adult fiction leads the entire class of circu lation. The librarian's report for 1890 showed that 69,722 volumes of this charac ter were taken during the year, while of juvenile fiction there were 29,116, of gen eral works and literature 4,880, of history 4,115, of biography 2,100, of travels 3,606, of useful arts l.ooa, ot natural sciences l.oiz, or re ligion 809, of philosophy 623, of sociology 7Bo and of philology 187. The total circu lation for last year was 120,845 volumes. This total was 4,482 less than the year be fore, but for 1891 the indications are that the circulation will far exceed this num ber. The time of the year has another bear ing upon the circulation. During the win ter and early spring months people stay at home during the long and cold evenings and do more reading. The circulation for each of the six months from November to April averages from 2,000 to 4,000 above that for the months of the other half of the year. The number of volumes in circulation is comparatively small. It does not reach lo,0U0, hardly more than the number ot books issued during the busy months. The works of juvenile fiiction are taken out, upon the average, about thirty times each during the year while the works of adult fiction are issued not over twenty two times each. The others range, upon the average from one to five times each. The school teachers are a most interest ing class or book arawers. They display tastes ot all vanties out most ot them take at least one or two solid substanial volumes upon scientific or educa tional subjects. A large number have availed themselves of the privilege of taking out cards entitling them to five books at the same time for school use. It seems to be the general opinion among libraries that the public benefit of such privileges is amply sufficient to justify the granting ot tms privilege, xn some HDra ries the number of books allowed each is ten or even fifteen. In addition to this some libraries have purchased several hun dreds of duplicates and place them in the schools themselves. The valuable results which follow amply compensate for the outlay. lint there is no immediate pros pect that this course will be practicable for this library, nor that the number of books allowed can be soon increased. The books added within the past few months have been the principal new books of general interest besides standaid works and some important sets. Among the more noticeable may be mentioned the fol lowing: Johnson's Cyclopaedia In eight volumes; Cambridge Bible for schools, over ao volumes; JLiitteu's ljivme Age, x ia vol umes: Atlantic Monthly, 35 volumes to complete the set; a considerable portion of Bonn's Libraries, Deutscher Novellen- Schatz, 43 volumes: Scientific American, nearly complete set: McClintock & Strong's Cyclopaedia of .Biblical Lit erature, 12 volumes; Benton's Debates of Congress, 16 volumes; Knight's English Cyclopaedia, 23 volumes; Supple ment to Encyclopaedia Britannica, 4 vol umes; Quarterly Review, 143 volumes; Jones' Grammar of Ornament; Franklin's Works, 10 volumes; 18 years' numbers of the Kevue des deux Mondes; V volumes oi Library Journal, completing the set. A large proportion of the books purchased only ruled the place ot others worn out. About one-hub ot the number has to be deducted to give the number of real ad ditions; that is about 1,800 new books ad ded by purchase. The cause of so many books being worn out is readily seen in the number ot tunes that the notion is issued. Another notable fact is that the number of persons holding circulation cards is about the same as the total number of books The average number of books tak en by each borrower during a year is from twenty to thirty. Librarian Stetson con siders that the new quarters will greatly increase the public interest in the library and elevate its tone as well as the mental life of the book takers. As they read they call for a higher grade of books and perhaps a wider range in character of books. "It is expected," he says, "that more and more costly and many rare books will be called for. - Therefore any great addition to the book funds would not increase so much the number of books bought as add more valuable and useful books. . The average cost per volume may reasonably be doubled witnin a tew years, judging from the ports of other libraries as well as the theo retical aspects ot the case. , The present amount available for books will therefore not seem any less required on account of the growth in the number of volumes, but will probably seem even more inadequate. Indeed it will be some, time before, considering only the number of the books alone, popular demands can be met as is desirable. Oar library is still one of the smallest In comparison to the size of the citv in this country or elsewhere, seems proper that the need of greater re sources should be kept prominently in view. While the library is doing a great work, it oucht to do much more: ana to this end (I trust I may be perdoned for ex pressing the opinion that) a city appro priation not less than Springfield and Lowell have made for years would none too great. ' - The library building, interior as well be as exterior, has been examined and criticised by hundreds of prominent citizens and others who are Interested in the library. J.ne exterior stui Dears a stmong resem blance to what one is accustomed to fash ion in the mind as a church edifice and will probably always remain so. Within, However, mere is litue to remind one this style of edifice save, perhaps, the gal lery pillars, and these have been feBtooned and adorned by the sxiu ot Architect am son until they present a handsome and even secular appearance and do not seem to overawe, even a little bit, the ught- I hearted pleasure of the occasion by their I solemnity. .These new galleries nave Haiurlira l'VnsYli MfTldrt HnvV' &n4 sTsmn4-ar look bud they rfll bo wed for book storage when needed. The galleries rest on iron beams. t Under the galleries, separated from the nave by partitions, partly wood and partly glass, on the north side is the reading room for periodicals and reference books: on the south side, the reading room for newspapers. The middle portion of I the building is for books.- The front part is the delivery department, where the pub lie receive and . return books . and consult catalogues. In the . space behind the delivery desk are the bookcases. - As the library grows the rear rooms on the first and second floors can be utilized for book storage. - The capacity for this purpose may be stated in round figures as 4,800 square feet, capable of holding 100,000 volumes. As it will be years before the upper - rear room will be required for books, it has been planned to fit it ud as a lecture room. The room for merly used as a pastors' study, in the southeast corner, has been devoted to the purposes of a directors' room, suiting the purpose admirably. Hard wood floors are laid throughout the entire building except in the front vestibules, which are tuea. GENERAL ASSEMBLY. A Good Deal of SUensslon and Very Little Dome The . House Takes a 1 a Reeeaa Until January 20 The Senate Adjourns Until Tuesday. Hartford, Jan. 8. Special. To-day the usual crowd of lawyers, would-be officeholders and curiosity seekers gave their undivided . attention to the house, in which body it was expected all the important business relative to the gover norship would be transacted. Early this morning the fair count returns of elec tions and the canvass of votes forming a big lot of papers and books were given to the house when the latter body was called to order by Speaker Paige at 10:15 o'clock, Representative Walker of Hartford was on the floor the first thing with the reso lution to grant Jacob'F. Graham of Nau- gatuck a seat in the house on the ground that the town has over 5,000 inhabitants. This resolution was referred to the com mittee on contested elections with the documents from the census bureau setting forth the official count of the population of Naugatuck. The chair then announced the commit tee on house rules, consisting of Messrs, Comstock of Nor walk, Green of Norwich and Healy of Windsor. Before the speaker had time to utter a few words to Judge Harrison Mr. Walker once more had the floor on a question of privilege, asking that the chair enforce the house rule prohibiting strangers taking the seats of members on the floor. This rule was a blow aimed at the gentlement occu pying seats with the members for the pur pose of coaching them, and caused con siderable discussion, in which Representa tives Green of Norwich.Saxe of Waterbury and Healy of Windsor Locks took part, The speaker finally declared that it was an unwritten law of the house to allow the friend of a member to occupy a seat at his side, and here the question was dropped, A resolution ottered by Mr. dudson ot Stratford was passed authorizing the com mittee on contested elections to sit during recesses and summon papers and persons. The resolutions from the senate declar ing all the democratic state officers elected to their various positions was next read. Mr. Ureen-ot .Norwich arose and oirered resolution which set forth the action of the house regarding returns and canvass of votes.and likewise the action of the sen ate, and provided for the appointment of select house committee ot eignt.to be ap pointed by the chair. This committee is to have power to examine into the returns of the late election, to summon persons and papers necessary to an extrinsic and explanatory examination, and to sit dur ing recesses for the prosecution of the worx. Mr. Boot of Waterbury made a strong argument against the adoption of the reso lution and amended it so that the scope of the latter should not extend to the election or office of comptroller. MfNudson of Hartford opposed this amendment as did Mr. Hotchkiss of New Haven and Porter of Pomf ret. On motion of Mr. Greene the original resolution was put and carried by an aye and nay vote, with tne following result: Whole number cast, 249; necessary for choice, 125; aye, 132; nay, 117. This was after the amendment was voted on and lost. Mr. Healy of Windsor Locks submitted second amendment which set forth that whereas John J. Phelan was elected secretary of state, as appeared by the returns, that tne resolu tion should not be included in the former resolution. Mr. Markley of New Britain held that the house committee had no power to issue summons with con currence on the part of the senate. Mr. Markley was followed by Kepresentatives Saxe of Waterbury and Callahan of New Haven, who fully set forth the law on the subject as they unerstood it, and held that no committee could go behind the returns made by the moderators, both gentlemen favoring the amendment. Alter tnrtner discussion by Messrs. Judson of Stratford and judd ot juitcnneia, tne amendment was lost by an aye and nay vote, resulting in the casting of 240 votes, 132 yeas and 108 nays. Mr. xuttle then introduced a number or petitions and affidavits relating to the November elections wnien were rererrea to the house committee on the canvass of votes. He also moved a recess until January 20 at 10 o'clock and this was car ried. The house committee to examine returns had been appointed, consisting of Greene, republican, Norwich; Hotchkiss, democrat, JNew uaven; J nelson, republi can, Stratford; Tuttle, republican, East Haven; Markley, democrat, New Britain; Card, democrat, Sharon; sorter, republi can, Promfret; and Bissell, republican, Clinton. The Senate. GENERAL WATSON APPOINTED GENERAL GRAHAM WANTS A HEARING VARIOUS GUBERNATORIAL APPOINTMENTS. The senate came to order at 11 o'clock and Governor Bulkeley sent in a resolu tion which read: I have the honor to announce the appointment during the recess of the senate of Thomas L. Watson to be brigadier general in the place of Charles P. Graham, honorablv discharged from the service, said appointment to continue until I the further action ot the senate tnereon. Morgan U. sui.kei.ky. Governor. The resolution was referred to the com mittee on executive nominations to be raised. A letter from General Graham was also received, which set forth his discharge in March, 1890, by the governor and in con clusion said:. "I had no opportunity to be heard before a military tribunal upon any charges and no cause is assigned in the order discharging me from the service of the state. I would respectfully request that you inquire into the matter before taking any action with reference thereto. After some discussion the matter waB tabled. A recess was then taken from 11:30 to 12 o'clock, and when the senate again came to order Governor Bulkeley sent in another resolution appointing Thomas S. Brown sheriff of Middlesex county until 1894; Charles A. lSliiott a director of state pris ons until July, '92; H.J.Ransom of Vernon a county commissioner of Tolland county, and Ueorge ft. Martin ot JNew Haven a harbor commissioner, the term of each of the three latter gentlemen to expire in July, 'a. AFTER RECESS. -.At 2:30 the people had begun to crowd into the senate chamber, as the house had taken a recess until January 20 and they were anxious to see what action the senate would take in the matter but it was 3 o'olock before the speaker called the sen ate to order once more. Senator Pierce of the Fourth moved that the senate take a recess for half an hour, ana n was so voted. At 8:20 the senate was , called to order onee more. . ' Senator Pierce of the ' Fourth said the senate is likely to have business of impor tance before it soon, and I move we take a recess until 4 o'clock. Promptly at 4 o'clock Senators Pierce, Fox, Seymour, Holden and Cleveland, who had been in the ante-room, aai the speaker called tne senate once more to order. A BBNBATION AND A DISAPPOINTMENT. It was now thought that something very Important would occur as the rumor was that the demooiaQo state officers, who were at the residence of Attorney Hammersly, would appear before the senate and take the oath of office, after which they would make a formal demand for their respective offices, and . if ' refus ed, - would then ;. bring an action of quo warranto to obtain possession of them. That there was any foundation iox these rumor the leading democratic sena tors denied, and when Senator Pierce of the Fourth moved to adjourn until Tues day at 1:30 p. m. the motion was carried ana the senate declared adjourned, muoq to the disappointment of -toe spectators, who bad waited in., expectancy of a strug gle forth offices. ;. - : .:. .

Medical aid was sum moned and her wonnds were dressed. It is thought she will recover. She has been slightly demented for some time. The board ot trade of .Norwich the other night voted to co-operate with the Sons of the Revolution in placing the old town house upon the green at Norwich Town on the ground that the building should be preserved and cared for as a rare feature of historic interest and as a credit and honor to that town. Jonathan Trumbull, in advocating its preservation, said that the building had a history and should be preserved, for it bears the same relation to Norwich that Faneuil and Independence halls do to Boston and Philadelphia. It is proposed to start a popular subscription to which every man, woman and child may contribute and thus own a share in the historic relic, which can be fitted up with a- hall, committee and reception rooms. The wedding of the iiev. Oliver 1. flat tery of Portland and Miss Adelaide Brain ered occurred Wednesday morning at the bride's residence in that town.

The New Preston correspondent of the Litchfield Enquirer, not to be outdone by the favorable reports about the ice crop in other parts of the state, says: "As for the crop on Waramang lake, it is twelve inches thick, more crystal-like, trans parent, colder and better than any from Nova Zembla or Greenland could possibly be, and needs no ecomium. Mr. Frank Hosf ord, with a brand-new set of ice tools, plows it out for everybody who has the cash." CONDEMNED AS UNSAFE. A Two Story Brick Tenement on Mea dow Street to be Torn Down. The large two-story brick tenement house, which formerly stood at 204 Mea dow street and was removed seventy-five feet to the rear in order to make room for the newirailding of Price, Lee & company, has been declared unsafe by the fire marshal and will be immediately torn down. The walls of the structure were ascertained to be eight inches out of plumb and Mr. Charles H. Webb, who is the agent of the owner, Mrs. Elizabeth S. Peck, was consequently notified to tear down the building so as to remove the danger of its falling, or to cut oS a section of the building about two feet in width to see whether the rest of the building would settle. The chance of effecting a remedy by the latter method seemed so remote that the owner of the house decided to tear down the two upper stories of the building, leaving the bakery, in the base ment untouched, and rooms for storage about six feet high on the floor over the basement. ; The bakery is occupied by John S. Gil bert, the tenement on the first floor by John Malone and the second floor by Charles Anderson and family. The Ma lone' family have already vacated the premises and the Andersons will follow suit immediately. By the tearing down of the two upper floors the danger of the building collapsing will be removed and Mr. Gilbert will not be obliged to vacate the premises.

" From tbe St. Louis Republic If still living, Miss Nancy Taylor of Grant township, Taylor county, la., is possessed of one of the most remarkable pair of eyes ever heard of this aide of the realms of wonderland. Her curiouB opti cal defect has been known to her parents ever since she was a small child, and to the people of that portion of Taylor coun ty since the child first started to school, but her fame on account of the freakish characteristics of her eyes did not spread beyond the limits of the state until about 1877, when Miss Nancy had reached the mature age of ten years. Persons with but a smattering of optics know that oculists have a theory that everything we see is seen in its inverted order; daily association from the cradle up being all that makes such objects ap pear in regular order, the impression con veyed to the brain by the optic nerve showing objects standing just the reverse to the way our "seeing sense" teaches us they are. In this lies the Taylor girl!s re markable optical deformity. When she reads a book or paper she does so by hold ing it inverted before her eye. WhUe rela tives standing a few feet away appear all right to her, the paper or book must be turned upside down before a word can be read. A Twenty-Second Talk.

The Opening Higher Prominence In Sugar Henneries Strong Spot Here ana xnere in tne List. Riw York, Jan. 8. . BaUroad bonds were more active, but failed to display as strong a front as during the past few days, though few losses resulted.

Among the Important advances Atlantic and Pacific fours lKto74. Stocks opened fractionally higher and with the coal stocks In the lead farther advances were made all along the line In the. forenoon. Lacka wanna rose nearly per cent. Sugar Refineries also prominent. The fluctuations outside of these stocks, however, were slight, and while firm tone there was little vim In the market, the waiting disposition becoming most marked after the announcement of the action of the presidents when, except in a few shares, dullness became the ruling feature and continued so until the close. The trading element was inclined to take advantage of this apathy, and hammered stocks. their operations resulting in a partial loss of the early gains. There were strong spots here and there In the list, however, and no impression was made upon the prices.
