FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1894.
A glance at the head of the

Messrs. Baskerville, Roberson and

to . lose these earnest colleagues,
and would, by wayof parting,
ascribe to their efficient labors a
great share of this paper's success.

her various lovers. This is the

taken to mean exactly what the
editors have painfully studied to
avoid. Speaking of the intended

Many salutary changes have
recently been made in the Library.
All the public documents and law

on those high inaccessible shelves,
have been taken down and ar
ranged in the new steel cases ac
cording to subject a n d d a t e.
Among these many very valuable
documents were found.
Seventy-five new volumes have
just been added, catalogued and
are now ready for use. Lists of
all the new books are made and
posted in the Library, where they
may be read.
During the last year 1,800 new
books have been added.
