TO ASK COUNTY TO CONTRIBUTE. Library Board Will Try for an Annual Appropriation. SUBJECT TO BE BROUGHT UP THIS FALL. To Enlarge its Scope to a City and Count;' Library. INSTITUTION HAS DONE GREAT GOOD. Meeting of the Board Tonight to Discuss Rules for the Permanent Government of the Library. The Library board lias decided to ask the County board for an annual appro priation toward the support of the li brary, so that the institution may serve the purpose of city and county, thus ex tending its usefulness. Mr. Nash, presi dent of the board, says that the County board is clothed with the authority to make such an appropriation. When the library was established, wholly by the voluntary subscriptions of the citi zens, the city government considered the library of such value to the com munity that a resolution appropriating $1,300 a year was passed, which sum is to be used to meet current expenses. The Library board, however, while it has been judicious in its expenditures, apprehends that the reading public is multiplying very fast, and with this growth larger amounts of money will be necessary. Then again to bring the library within the free reach of the county will entail much additional cost, inasmuch as there will lie a greater de mand for books, which will compel quite extensive purchases. The Library board is to meet tonight, and Mr. Nash will submit rules and regulations for the governance of the board and for the transaction of its busi ness, It is likely the plan which will be submitted will be adopted. Mr. Nash says that the appreciation shown by the public in the library is very gratifying to the board, and now that the fall is here and winter is com ing the rooms of the institution will be made more attractive.

CRAIG STRICKEN DOWN IN THE VERY PRIME OF MENTAL AND PHYSICAL MANHOOD. Two weeks ago James E. Craig, of Springfield, Mass., returned to Manitowoc, the home of Ids child hood, to visit friends of other davs. particularly Dr. Banzhaf. In company with the doctor he called at the Pilot office. He was full of life and laughter. Standing at the gateway of manhood; erect, hand some and frank, he looked athwart into the future, confident in his ability to achieve a high place among men, equipped for the tattle of life with a splendid physique, for health seemed to flash from Ids bright eves. This admirable young man who left his Manitowoc friends a few days ago to rejoin his girl-wife, no sooner reached his New England home than death, like a thief in the night struck a cruel dart at Ids heart, and to-day his tongue is silent, his eyes have been closed in their long sleep, and his form is laid to rest in Mother Earth, beneath the weeping willow, and those who survive him can say with Tennyson: Which weep n loss forever new. A void where heart on heart reposed. And. where warm hands have prest and closed. Silence, till 1 he silent too. Which weep the comrade of my choice. An awful thought, a life removed. The human-hearted man I loved. A spirit, not a breathing voice. WHAT THE MILWAUKEE GERMANIA THINKS OF LOUIS G.
