SHOWS INCREASE OF THE COMMUNITY la her August report. Mis3 Margar et Green, city librarian, says: "The book circulation for the month was i greater than that of last month by four hundred." and from all accounts, the library Is steadily growing In fa vor, not only with children, but with the adults, particularly strangers in the city. The report proceeds as follows: There have been two noticeable features in the library work this month. The first in the increase In the number of borrowers. There have been seventy added since the first of August, thus making the number of borrowers to date, 948. The second feature, a very gratify ing one. Is the increased demand for non-fiction books and especially on industrial subjects, such as carpen try. concrete construction, electric ity. steam engines, etc. Books on these subjects are needed very much. A list of such books has been hand ed to the Book committee. A number of government reports have been received. These are the latest government publications on Al aska and are in constant demand. The following new books have been added by purchase: The Far-Country, by W. Churchill. The Harbor, by Ernest Poole. Scudder's Children's Book. King Arthur and His Knights. New Books Received The books donated by the Shakes peare Club have been received, ac re ioned and prepared for the rhelves. The presentation of twelve books to the Library by Mr. Knapp, General Secretary of the Inland Empire Sun day School Association was very gratifying. Mr. Knapp spent sever al days in thd^Llbrary during July and his donation was the result of his Investigation of our resources and of his Interest in our welfare. A temporary foreign borrower gave a modern book on the war in Eur ope. entitled, "How Belgium saved Europe." To date there are 1700 accessioned books In the Library, aside from the government reports, etc. The Dally Skagway Alaskan was presented to the Library. Also the American Socialist, and a magazine called The Masses. Circulation Department The book circulation for the month! was much greater than last month by four hundred. It is gratifying to no tice increased demand for non-fiction especially among the children. 125 Juvenile class was issued and 119 adult class. 910 adult fiction and 669 Juvenile fiction, making a total of 1823 books issued during the month. There have been fifty books cata logued and otherwise prepared for circulation. The work on the index catalogue is progressing slowly owing to the rush of other work that is more es- i sential. It is hoped that by the time < we are ready to move into our new quarters the index catalogue will be ' finished. Mrs. Thatcher's help on several oc casions other than her regular day, has enabled the work on the catalogue to progress a little more rapidly than last month. We are indebted to Mr. Thatcher 'or his offer and service In marking ho call number on the book:;. This [3 a now way of marking books and is much more satisfactory, and cer :ainly is much neater. Cash Report Cash taken In during the month amounted to $9.20. Fines. $7.80. Cards. 90 cents. Collections, 50 cents. Total $9.20. Reading Room The attendance In the reading room has been excellent this month. A number of visitors have been In. The sailors from the flotilla spent a great deal of time 'reading the magazines and newspapers. There have been times when the reading room was so crowded that iato comers had nq place to sit and had to leave. Reference Work This branch of the Library work Is very interesting. It shows that the Library is being used for solid study and practical purposes. The Indus trial books will be very serviceable in the work. Altogether the mouth has been very satisfactory. Respectfully submitted, MARGARET DUNCAN GREEN. Librarian. SOUTHWESTERN GRAND JURY MAKES REQUESTS Reporting to Governor J. F. A. Strong, the Grand Jury which recent ly was In session at Naknek and Knik has made the following recommenda tions: 1. That the Legislature be instruct ed to mako some provision for the keeping and schooling of minors con victed of crime. 2. That the Department of Justice provide a sea-going launch for the use of the marshal in serving war rants. 3. That a government school be bnilt at Naknek, where there are at present fifty children of school age. a number far in excess of the number in many districts where schools have already been established. 4. That a wagon road be construct ed from Illamna Bay on Cook Inlet to the head of Iliamna Lake. The Jury reports that this road, which would be a little less than 15 miles in length, would save the necessity of making an ocean voyage of 1200 miles. 5. That a deputy game warden be appointed in order to prevent the "wanton slaughter" of caribou which is going on at the present time. In regard to the last recommenda tion. it is the impression of the Gov ernor's office that the game condition are really very much better this year than they have been in previous years, and that a great many of the reports of violation of the game law are really unfounded. In connection with the problem of schooling for children who have been convicted of crime there will probab ly be no action taken. There has already been made provision for such coses and there is available a fund which can be drawn upon to defray expenses whatsoever may be Incurred In that connection. The law provides for a Board of Guardians for delin quent children, of which the District Judge is chairman, and the marshal and one woman who Is appointed by the Governor. The boards of Guard ians throughout the Territory con stst of the following: First Divis ion, Judgo Robert W. Jennings, U. S Marshal ,H. A. Bishop and Mm. J. Q Held; Second Division, Judge J. R. Tucker, Marshal E. R. Jordan, and Mrs Joseph CUne; Third Division, Judge Fred M. Brown, Marshal James R. Brenueman, and Mrs. Geo. C. Treat; Fourth Division, Judgo Charles E. Bunnell, Marshal L. T. Krwln and Mrs. Luther C. Hess. SUES TRU8TEES OF M0RRI80N FISH CO. Suit has been filed by A. C. Will iams, as trustee of the Katalla Pro duce Company, against W. G. Smith and Charles Rosenberg as trustees of the Morrison Fish Company, Gor man & Company and the First Na tional Bank of Katalla. Tho plain tiff charges that ho gave a chattol mortgage to secure a consideration of $1536 and that upon the payment of this mortgage tho defendant trus tees refused to cancel the mortgage, and the plaintiff alleges that it has cost $80 to defray attorney's expen ses to enforce this cancellation. Later it seems that tho holdings of tho various Interests making up the Morrison Fish Company were pooled, and that the total valuation of the pool amounted to $10,000, Smith and Rosenborgor were appoint ed trustees. The plaintifT further charges, that as trustees of this pool, the defendants collected the sum of $5000, and out of that fund havo sat isfied only the claims of the Katalla bank as creditor, completely Ignoring the claims of other creditors to their serious and irreparable damage. Wil liams alleges that there is due him tho amount of $368.83 plus $58.92 in terest, and another amount of $255. 24. The complaint asks that the Court restrain the defendant trustees from further disbursements to the Katalla bank, that the trustees be obliged to furnish the plaintiff a full and com plete statement of tho accounts of the pooled company, and for judg ments in the two amounts alleged to be due and unpaid. O. A. Tucker will represent the plaintiff. No answer has boen filed and the case will probably not be hoard until late In the next term of court. HENDEE'S ARM WILL BE AS GOOD AS -EVER According to information received from the hospital this morning J. C. Hendee will in a short timo have re gained the use of his arm. Dr. Dawes and Dr. Mahone who have had charge of tho case have stated that the op eration which was performed Satur day. at which timo the injured larger bone was plated and tho broken ends of the smaller bone wired to the larg er one, has proved remarkably suc cessful and they are very hopeful for Hendee's speedy recovery. Owing to the fact that neither tho muscle nor the main arteries were in jured, it haB been possible to accom plish much more than was at first hoped. Hendee will undoubtedly have full use of his fingers, and will have almost as good an arm as he ever had, is the general opinion of those who have had charge of the case. Wake up!

Good Joke On Old Harvard "Nick" Longworth tolla this ono on himself: "When I was traveling,In China I met a very delightful Chinese man who seemed to know something of America, and as we . chatted he asked me: " 'What was your college?' "'Harvard,' snld I, proudly. " 'Ever Interested In rowing In your dayt* he Inquired. '"Quite a bit,' I replied. " 'What's tho length of the Harvard slide now?' he wanted know, and I Immediately sensed he had known something of the boat. So we talked of oarsmanship and water men, and at last I asked: "'When you were In America were you ever at New London for the rac es?' "'Oh yes,' he replied softly. 'For three years.' " 'Then you've seen Harvard row?" I offered. "'No, never saw her,' he almost lisped. "'You were at New London and never saw Harvard row? How could that be?* " 'I was cox'un In tho Yale boat, and Harvard was so far behind each year that I never saw her row!'" Boy Speed Marvel Found A marvel of speed and stamnia. Dana Jenkins, of Eunice, La., is the greatest sprinter In Dixie, and possi bly will develop in another season in to the fastest cinder path racer ev er produced In America. A schoolboy of 19, country born, and bred, Jenkins Is only In the first stage of athlotlc development. Yet he is now the holder of two southern A. A. U. records, is unofficially credited with another, and has established a batch of lnterscholastlc records that which stand for some time. Gets Two Marks The A. A. U. records were estab lished this year, and are 32 1-5 sec onds for the 220-yard dash and 50 sec onds flat for the 440-yard dash. The unofficial mark is 9 4-5 seconds for the century dash. All of these per formances wore done in one day, the 220-yard dash following lmmodla.ely after the quarter. A runner who "runs only as fai.t as he must to win." Je nklns' perform ances are considered by southern people as only examples of what the newest prodigy in athletics can do in fast company. Experts agree that he has never boen extended, neither has he been properly conditioned or fa vored by a fast path. Was High School Sprinter Jenkins first gained recognition as the representative of the Eunice (La.) high school, when he astound ed followers of athletics by wonder ful one-day performances for exhibi tions of speed and stamnla which have never been equalled. Meet af ter meet was won by the Eunice team but It was only Jenkins who was scor ing points and in time they called hlra the Eunice team. Here is a sample of one of Jenk ins' one-day performances this year at the Louisiana state high school rally: Makes Good Marks. Fifty-yard dash, beat and final, 5 3-5 seconds. 880-yard run, 2 minutes and 9 sec onds. 220-yard hurdle, heat , and final, 26 seconds. Hop, step and jump, 42 feet, 8 inch es. And another one week lator: 100-yard dash, heat (10 1-6) final 10 flat. 440-yard dash, 54 seconds. 220-yard dash, heat (23 2-5) final, 23 flat. Broad Jump, 21 feet, 1-2 Inch. 220-yard hurdle, heat and final, 27 seconds. Then on the following Friday he won the A. A. U. Junior 100-yard dash in 10 flat. On Saturday he turned tho three record performances men tioned above. Jenkins comes from a family of 11, three brothers before him having won athletic fame under the colors of the Louisiana state university. Next sea son Dana will start his college career on the Tigers' track team, and south ern college sprinters should beware of this speed marvel.
