TEE COSSITT LIBRARY.
THUNDEROUS ARGUMENTS AGAINST
Ita LOCATION ON THE BLUFF.
An Expert Arcblteot and a Famous Li
brarian Strongly Braos the Opposi
tion or Judgs Hammond Case of the
Newberry Library, Cbloago.
Among the many long-headed, public
spirited citizens of Memphis, it is some
what remarkable that tho question ot a
si to for the Cossitt Library has not been
taken up by thorn (or wide-spread and se
Jutige Hammond alone, of all the capa
ble) outsiders, has entorod protest against
its location on Jtho bluff south of and ad
jacent to the custom-houso.
It was but a few days ago that Tub Ap
teal contained an interview with Judo
Hammond on this important question. In
the talk reported tho Judgo took tho
ground that tho river front and extreme
western border of the city wos no placo
for a public library, or any other public
building. For a very few years, barring
noises made by railroad trains and steam
boats, tho proposed site might be bo made
to do. With the growth of the city, and
dispersion of banks from Madison Btrcet,
certain to come at no far distant day, the
character of tho locality would undergo a
marked change Tho river front will be taken
np with warehouses, and given over to
warehousemen, draymen, truckmon, aud
become tho center of shipping itcrcsts.
With this almost certain revolution in his
mind's eye, and the undeniable fact that
a library should be located with a view to
permanency and fitness, the Judso stood
squarely upon the ground that tlio Cossitt
Library should not be located upon tho
bluir, as nearly as possible in the heart of
tho city of the near future.
Some unknown "old Meruphinn," now
o resident of Chicago, sent Judo Ham
mond a copy of the Chicago Jhrald, of
Saturday, Juno 8. -The paner contuiued a
lengthy article on 4Tho New Newberry
Library Sito," in which was much that
should claim tho best Judgment and most
studious consideration of tho Cossitt
Library trustees. On the margin of the
paper, the sender had written his senti
ments, as follows:
"1 havo been interested in your ideas on
tho location of the Cossitt Library. This
the article referred toj covers tho ground
as to such surrounding If Memphis is
evrrtobe anything more than a stage
route village with ono street, sho must
look to something except the lllnll for lo
calities for public buildings. My location
for the Cossitt Library is the triangle at
New and Old Maiisou streets and Charles
ton avenue, converted into a public park,
city hull and library."
Tho article Intended for the coni.idern
lion of Judgo Hammond was bated upon
an act of tho Newberry Library trustees,
changing tho sito fur tho proactive insti
tution. Tho chuugo was inllueuced bv
Henry Ives Cobb, architect of tho Library,
aud Librarian W. l'oolo. The former
w as appointed bv the truHleos about a year
ago, since which time be has U'cn devot
ing his thought to tho study of libraries
and library buildings. Ho details tho re
sult of his research in foreign cities, and
cites one rxamilo at home, the new lkv
ton Library, all of which pay high regard
to tho valuo of space about theiu. Con
tinuing, Mr. Cobb says:
"Another, and certainly the most im
portant point of view from which you
liave already rnrvliillr considered the
'Homestead Ixit' is that of convenience
to the majority of tho people to whom Mr.
"Newln-rry left his great pilt. Where do
there people live, and where will they livo
niiy or iw years irom nowf a lew, per
haps 1 per cent., will live rut of Suite
street, but that 1 percent isliablo to have
many books of their own. The great mans
of the people for whom the library is to be
built will live west of Blato street. Owing
to tho great future size of our city, nustt ail
tho visitors to the library will dejiend
upon some means of public convevance to
reach it; hence, tho present anj future
means of public transportation about the
Site are of vital importance,"
Tho recommendation of Architect Cobb
was submitted to W. K. l'oolo, ono f the
greatest librarians of the country. In tho
midst of his elaborate reply Uiii gentleman
"Tho selection of a location for the per
manent building 1 rogarJ as the most im
portant question connected with the or-
Siniuitlon of the Newberry Library. The
eclsion must he made not with reference
l (he needs ol tho library for a decade, a
..ill century, or a century; but for all time.
Itetnoval from a dwcllum-boute. store or
factory is attended with koine embarrass
ments; but the removal of a large library,
' which has been establish.! fur years, Irom
its original site, is stteoded with great dif
ficulties snd w ith enormous expemio, Tho
city of lloolon, in moving the location of
its public library building whoso corner
stono was laid less than thirty-four years
ago to row pawing through this expe
rience, r-tich a removal U a practical
abandonment of the wholo structure and
of all the improvements nindo iixn the
pienilw. Tho bent selection, in view of
all tho elements in tho problem, should,
therefore, bo mado st lirst; for fifty or a
hundred years benco it will not lie poMiblo
to procure a location large ami central
cnoiiirli for the purpose of the New berry
JJhrary without an luiaicnw expenditure
further on it Is said t
"It may be said that sn Institution of
the linH)rtancc of the Newberry Library
will stlmrt to it scholarly reader wher
ever It is located. Tho remark is truo con
cerning a Iji go class of readers; sud vet
experience shows that another larjio class
of reader will not visit a library habitual
ly if Its location le remoto from the usual
lines of travel. Tho fai t is shown In tho
two branches of the I'hiUdelphia IJbrary
(,'onipsny. Tho branch on Juniicr street
I much Ircqiieutcd Ixvaiiso it is cssl'jr ac
cessible; while the Kidgewiiy branch on
Uroad street, having a structure which
cost $SUO,0ii has only a score of Visitor
dailv, been uso it is not resdily accessible
"It may t objected to tho Ogden lot
that busincM has nlnsdy Invaded tho
Vicinity, whereas. In the region of Ontario
and I; nidi streets, quietitdo and somno
lence rcicn supremo a coudilion which is
supMvil to be conducive to literary and
Scientific pursuits. Assuming tho supo
Sition which is questionable to he cor
rect, it might be adwsahloto usolho Home
stead lot for a few year if a niinririit
library building loiild be movod with the
facility of a circus tent aud a new hicatiou
ss eafily be found for It, business I In
vading the whole southern portion of the
' North Invlsion. and the Honisstel lot
cannot etK-si this inevitable tnoveiuent.
"A location so umr the groat center of
trade must eventually yield to the do
tuand of business. Tho distance from
Ontario street to tho river is the same as
from tbe river to Madison street on the
fcouth Hdo; and Oak street .a the same
diatano from the river a Is Harrison
street. Rush street, if it evor was first
cist property from the bridge to Ontario
street. Is so bo longer, but is given np to
mall shops, boarding-houses and flats."
The foregoing, from iiwrt, taken with
what Judge llsnitnonJ basset forth, should,
aud uo dvubl will, have weight with the
trusties. There is no ssiuraui of this,
however, remombering what "President
Madden, one of tha Board, has stated.
He is content to go npon record as hold
ing thac, since the bluff lot has been set
aside for the library, could not be disposed
of anyhow for other than a public purpoao,
and that no oue has come forward to con
tribute a lot elsewhere, the library must
go there. .

HOW SHALL I SAVE MY BOYS
How Can I Make Their Horns so Attract
ive That Tbey Will Seek No
"How shall I keep my boys at home
nights, aud away from tho saloon and
sirect corner?" ''Make their home bright,
cheerful and tempting." I bad occasion
rccontly w hilo calling at a lovely home to
go up stairs to tho boys' room, and I
didn't wonder that they went somowhore
else to spend their evenings. The par
lors, sittiug-room, diniug-room, etc., were
elegantly furnished cosy chairs, solas,
lounges, pictured and an abundance of
littlo elegancies. Tho boys' rooms wero
bare walls, littlo strips of carpet near tho
beds, plain cheap bedsteads, common
chairs, mirrors, etc.; not a bit of ornamen
tation, not a'.bracket, not a picture nor a
booksholf. What was there to make tho
boys feol that they were wanted at homo,
or in love with "their rooms? Thoro is
nothing that pays so largely on the invest
ment as money spent in having tho homo
full of tho truo aud tho beautiful. Tho
feelings and disposition of every person
are largely influenced by the immediate
surroundings. And especially Is it so
with children, their charactor is entirely
made by the iuiluenco of their home ap
pointments, one bright nd cheerful, fitted
with convenience and cosiness, will mako
the children's lives and characters as
bright, cheerful and attractive. Think
ing of these matters, ponder
ing over the Influence of littlo
things, and wondering if it cost so very
much to make a home attractive, I
stepped into "22b Second street to examine
the beautiful designs for homo decoration,
and the specimens of that wonderful now
material, "l'a Crusts." Just then one of
the leading gentlemen of Memphis camo
in, with a look of trouble on his face, to
talk bueiness.and I listened. Said bo: "Mr.
Degunn, I recently road an article in one
of' our papers containing much informa
tion given by you concerning forms of
Iioiiho decoration. I was much interested
in the facts you stated, and the knowledge
shown by you of tho early times of vour
business, and I thought how much better J
those old heathens ina.lo their homes in
some resjiccts than we do with all our
advancement. My boys are getting old
enough to be ruined, and I want to save
them. I want to keep them nt homo,
have them love to be there, and I havo
concluded, sinco reading that article, that
you can help mo. Of course money is not
to bo counted as against the saviug of my
boys. Hill, I don't want to waste it My
boys havo each well-dellnod and distinct
tastes, and 1 wish to consult theso tastes
in fitting up their rooms. What
can you do lor mo in that?" "I can
do anything you want My new pat
ent process of wall decoration and room
ornamentation is capablo of unending va
riation. 1 can tit up a room in any way
you wisli. 1 can imitate tho style of any
age or country, or any era in the history
ot this or any other nation. If tho boy
has any seciul mechanical or scicntilic
tosto or bent, I con make the trimmings
snd decorations to suit that, and have all
his surroundings indicative of and a means
of promoting and encouraging his peculiar
tastes and wishes," His face lighted up.
"Copitnl, capital. I can make our homo
tho most attractive and enticing placo
in tho world to our boys; consult
their wishes and taste and encourage
them in all good things. Why, that
sort of work is an invalm.blo aid to
a parent in this wav, Ixvido all its
beauty and adaptability of adornment.
Now, how about tho coats?" "I can put
it np at anv cost from plnin, elegant and
tasty, but inexpensive, up to any price you
are willing to pay. It all deiiends on tbe
elaboration and Intricacy of design. I can
carry out and reproduce any design, form,
Impe or style you wish to suit tho taste
fancy or whim of any lxy or girl. 1 will
axree to this, 1 w ill tako any room you
have in your expensive house as it now is
and will relit It as you want it,
and in corresponding style sud appear
ance, for ball what it has cost vou
as it stand now. There 1 no material or
process 'ever offered to the people of
Miclby County that Is capable of pro
ducing such results in beauty sod effect st
treble tbe cost a this I now have. I will
do this for any house, or for any office,
flaco of business, or place of amusement,
have had scores of ladies, some of the
best, most refined and cultured one of our
city, within the past few days examining
my work and offering me desixna to imi
tate, and every one was charmed with
the work, and also with the inex
pensiveness. Is it ermsneut? Cer
tainly it is; more lasting and less affected
by weather and accident than any other
form of decoration now offered to our
leople, ouuido of stone or plaster. The
old homes of tireeco, Itome or Kurope
can show nothing more lasting or more re
teutivo of its beauty than this. Here at
tractivcncM and cheapne-s ol cost go hand
iu hand, (iivo me the order and I will
make your sous' rooms too attractive for
outside temptations to draw the in from
home." He got the order snd tho results
will n bo seen in ono of tho most beau
tiful of tho homes of Memphis.

18S0 nnd has had a stormy career. Tho
first few years of its history it bad a strug
gle against the hostility of a portion of the
citizens of Byhalia, who favored another
local school. After years of bitter conten
tion it was discovered to bo tho course of
wisdom to harmonize all differences and
let each school stand upon its merits, with
out detraction or abuse from cither side.
Tho result has been that both school
have prospered, and are a source of grati
fication and prido to the cilUcns of llv
halia and tho surrounding country. Tho
Waverly Inslituto occupies spacious
f rounds on tho summit of n gently sloping
dll, which overlooks tho town below and
affords an admirablo view of the neigh
boring hills aud valleys, which alternate
in tho landscape. Tho building appro
priated to tho use of tho classrooms aud
dormitories is largo and commodious, and
occupies a healthy site, sheltered by a
dozen or so ol lofty oaks and opening on
an iuimcnso lawn, that would afford
play-room for a thousand rhd
ilreii without crowding. Tho sani

unexceptionable, the air coming frcjli and

tendance next year. The people b! Syuh
Mississippi aro to bocfihgratulatod at hu,vV
ing so near to thorn an institution of so
much mtrit as tho Wavorly Instituto of
THE TOWS OF nVIIALIA.
Tho town of Byhalia is in Marshall
County, Miss., about twonty-eight miles
from Memphis, and derives its porno from
an Indian word, which meaus White O.ik,
a wood that abounds in the neighborhood.
It is au old town, and was established
some forty years, in tho day when largo
landed estates wero tho rule, nnd tho
wealth of the couuty divided among a few
lordly ownei'aot tho soil, a coudilion of
things that militated against the growth of
interior towns. Sinco tho war the town
seems to have,. imbibed a now lease of life,
and the history of recent years would in
dicate that the commercial activity of tho
placo is likely to reach very respectable
proportions. The soil of the neighbor
hood is a rich, red clay, extremely fertile
aud generously responsive to the cultiva
tor' a en io. Tho hilly lauds that stretch
for miles In tho rear of the town aro nu
merously studded with farms of average
size, nil showing evidences of tho own
ers' thrift and prosperity. Kven the
negroes have taken to becoming owners
of tho soil and some of them ow n farms of
respectable siie, while others are content
w ith twenty or thirty aero lots. The pri n
cipal crops are cotton and corn and a
great uuinv devoto their attention to stock
raising. Tho result is that the people
from whom liyhalia derives its trade aro
well-to-do farmers who are beginning to
appreciuto tho advantages of education
and abundantly able to secure such ad
vantages to tiieir children. This of course
makes liyhalia a favorable locality for an
educational center, which it is fust becom
ing, there being another school thoro bo
sides tho Waverly Institute, which is also
enjoying a largo patronage). Put the citi
sous ol liyhalia are looking in other direc
tions for expansion, nnd talk of manufac
turing enterpisea. No belter place than
ltyhaliit could be found (or extensive brick
works anl manufactories of earthenware,
the clav found in the neighborhood being
admirably adapted lor either purpose. In
Holly Springs there aro two pottery manu
factories In full blast, both paying large
Tho annual trade ot ltyhalia is already
of lair proportions, amounting to a half
million dollars. Its annual shipments of
cotton approximate h.ihki bales, and most
of the proceeds aro spent at home. If
manufacture aro once established there,
with tho surplus capital of Its citizen or
that of far-sighted strangers, i:s rapid
growth is assured, its proximity to Mem
phis being in itself no incoiisidor.il. lo fact
