FOR PUBLIC LIBRARY Ashdow n Improvement Club Would Enlist Interest in Library Ituiid inir for Ashdown. The Ashdown Improvement Club has started a move for a public library building in this city, and announce that they will scon call a public meet ing for the purpose of enlisting public sentiment in the enterprise. The lad ies would hope to erect a building which would be a permanent home for a public library. It would possibly contain a library room an assembly room lor the club meetings, a kitchen, cloak rooms, etc. They believe that they can manage to erect the building if some of the public spirited citizens would provide them with the site. No public enterprise would be more valuable to the town than the one pro posed. A public library to grow into what it should be should have a per manent home, a reading room easily accessible to the public. The ladies have maintained a library for a num ber of years, and! have increased the number of volumns yearly but in mov ing from place to plaice they find that they have not been able to take proper oare of the books. With the proper co-opertion the people of the town 1 could easily put the proposition over. |-o--y ' WANTED—Pine, Oak or (Sunt Logs. I \ See me—W. H.
