Local Notes
We learn by letter that Joseph and
Mike Hesser, who left this city about
a year ago for Pensecola, Florida, and
have since been operating a paper mill
there, have decided so change their
location to Orange, Texas, where
better inducements have been offered
them. They closed down their mill a
few weeks ago and expected to have
the packing and loading of their
machinery finished by July 5. One
of the inducements for their removal
to Orange is that the city have offered
a ten-acre tract of land, three blocks
from the center of the city, for $2,500;
the land is valued at $25,000. Labor
and fuel are cheaper at Orange, and
the shipping facilities are very good.
Orange is a hustling city of about 8000
inhabitants, and has a very bright
“The way to gain a good reputation
is to endeaver to be what you desire
to appear.” That is precisely the
manner in which Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy has gained its reputa
tion as a cure for coughs, colds, croup
and whooping cough. Every bottle
that has ever been put out by the
manufacturers has been fully up to
the high standard of excellence
claimed for it. People have found
that it can always be depended upon
for the relief and cure of these ail
ments and that it is pleasant and safe
to take. For sale by John E. Daly

day noon from Appleton where he

secure the next reunion for Grand
Rapids, but as the Wood County
delegation was decidedly in the
minority he thinks it doubtful
whether our city will receive this
honor next year.

f ANNUAL REPORT OF 1901-1902.
To the Board ol Trustees of the T. B. Scott
Free Public Library of Grand Rapids, Wis.
Gentleman:—l herewith submit to
you the 12th annual report of the TANARUS,
B. Scott Library for the year ending
June 30, 1902.
Having taken up the work last
September 1 have endeavored to keep
it up to the standard, established by
Mrs. Evans, your former librarian.
The card catalog is now' completed
and is in constant use as the patrons
are rapidly becoming accustomed to
refering to it for the call numbers,
title, or any information In regard to
books in the library. This lightens
the work in the book room and allows
more time for reference work
A reading list with “roll of honor”
for the 4th and sth grades has been
posted in the childrens room and
quite a number of the children in the
tw'o grades are interested in reading
the books on the list.
The library commission has agreed
to furnish the library with 10 vol. of
back numbers of the St. Nicholas and
making about 20 volumes in all, as
these magazines contain a great
amount of good material for reference
work for the children of the lower
grades it w’ould be advisable to
purchase a St. Nicholas index as soon
as possible. Such an index would
cost about $4.00.
Something should be done to better
the ventilation in the reading room,
as during the winter months it is
almost impossible to prevent the
atmosphere from becoming very
impure. It will soon be necessary to
construct new shelving in both the
reference and book rooms as the
sections are very much over crowded.
Rubber tips are needed on a good
many of the chairs.
Grand Rapids now has a population
of about 5000 and during the last year
the library has loaned 1658 G books —
4805 less than last year making a
circulation of about 4 books per capita,
not including work done by people in
the reference room or persons accom
modated in the magazine room, as
stated to you last year. The useful
ness of a library is not shown by the
number of books loaned, but by the
reference work it does as well. The
circulation is not as large as last year,
the reference work has been heavier as
we now have 4 clubs and about the
same number of literary societies.

Bond city of Grand Rapids 750
This bond .was entered last year as
$1250, but one payment was made
sometime a fe r o and not endorsed. With
the payment of $250 this year leaves
the bond at $750 and the same is at
the First National Bank for safe
keeping. Respectfully submitted,
Isaac P. Witter,
To the Slractors of the J. 0. Witter Free
Traveling Libraries.
Gentleman:—About BO new books
have been added to the libraries since
last July; also an entire new library
making a total of 33 libraries now in
the system with from 40 to 45 books in
each library.
The circulation seems fair at all
stations except the three abandoned,
which are Dexterville, Seneca and
Bethel. Port Edwards now has good
school and Sunday school libraries so
the librarian thought best to surren
der the traveling library for a short
time. Babcock, South Centralia and
the town of Grant have returned their
libraries until fall when the school
teachers will again take charge of
Two new associations have been
formed—one at Van Driessen and the
other at Auburndalc; both stations
seem well pleased with their
The card catalog, which has been
written at odd times, is now completed
and has proved a great time saver in
the work with the libraries. The
accession book lias also been kept up
Libraries sent out since July 1, 1902.
