M C ELROY AT OMAHA, But Forgets to Mention One of Its Best Features, Which Was His Own lilttle Speech. E. P. MoElroy furnishes our readers n interesting little report of the brary congress at Omaha, but forgets 0 mention his own speech, in which he old how the clubs In Algona instead of eeplng libraries of their own had put hem into the public library. He was berally applauded. Mr. McElroy lands high with the librarians of the tato. He writes of the congress as a hole: The sessions of the library congress t Omaha were well attended and of reat interest. The topics discussed we of a popular character and the peakers were men and women who are nthusiasts in library work. Thursday venlng was devoted to addresses of welcome and responses. Friday morn- ng Butherford P. Hayes, formerly a member of the Ohio State Library commission, read an admirable address pon " Library Legislation and Library Joramissions." D. A. Campbell, state brarlan of Nebraska, spoke of the ack of state support in that state and lie consequent inefficiency of the work one. F. A. Hutchins, secretary of the Wisconsin Free Library commission, eliyered a very earnest address on the orklngs and beneficial results of the raveling library system in the Badger Lo. He said " the traveling library s a great boon to the country dls- riots." The consensus of opinion was 1 favor of organizing state commis- ons and pushing the work of travel- ng libraries in all the states. At the venlng session on Friday W. C. Lane, brarlan of Harvard university, pre- ided, and spoke briefly of the llbrari- n's privilege of imparting knowledge nd power to his fellow men, and of his esponsibillty as a public servant. The eneral subject of the evening was The Value of the Library to the Community," and was presented In very In- eresting and thoughtful papers by everal Individuals. The closing ud- ress of the evening by Bev. Mary A. afford of Sioux City, was an earnest nd thoughtful presentation of "The pirltual Value of the Public Library o the Community." She said that the brary was a blessing not only to those ho read, but to all who indirectly feel ,s Influence. The debt of religion to ne library, she said, is far greater tian is usually realized, for religion ot grounded in Intelligence is nothing igher than superstition. It is not nough to mean well, good intentions must be wedded to right thinking, and he library in use, adds to the educa- ion of the thinking faculties. "So much of wrong doing and suffering is rought about simply by ignorance, hat the library becomes a most im- iortant factor in the uplifting of the ation's life." She did not deplore the euding of fiction as in this oommer- ial age It was a stimulus to the itn- raagination and broadening In Its ten- ency. The session of Saturday was of profit o the library workers and as a whole he congress was most successful and timulatlng. It was good to be there. THE COUNTY FAIE. state, it seems as though a larger display of farm produce might have been gotten up for the fair. It is dot on account of the lack of inducement that the display was not larger. The premiums offered were large enough and covered sufficient ground, but the fault lies with the farmers in not putting the products of their labor on display. It is something that every farmer should be interested in, as all he does In this direction is to his own benefit. Swea City Herald: We have no hes- tancy in declaring this the most suc- essful fair ever held in the county. Armstrong Journal: Lots of people rom Seneca took in the fair at Algona and reported a fine display of our Bounty's wealth. Ledyard Leader: Quite a number of ur people attended the fair at Algona ast week and they report it the best air the county ever had. Burt Monitor: Four days of good weather and an excellent program made ,he county fair last week a great sue- seas, both as to exhibits and in attendance. H. P. Hatch writes in the Whltte- more Champion of the closing day and says: Everybody voted it the most en- oyable day of the kind they had ever cnown. Whittemore Champion: We were }1 eased to note that all sorts of fakes ind fakirs were conspicuous by their absence, and hope this rule may be continued in the future. Emmetsburg Democrat: The fellow who sold spoons hauled in a fine string of suckers at Algona during the fair. [f people are becoming wiser the actions of many don't show it. Wesley Beporter: On the whole our fair this year was a success, but after all was not what it could and should be. The exhibits in every department should be doubled, and this we believe can be done if the matter is thoroughly agitated some weeks before the fair is held. Wesley News: Wesley was well represented at the county fair at Algona last week, and all report'a splendid time. Great credit is given the management for having prepared ample attractions to entertain the large crowd, and those who were present were well repaid for the time and money spent. Emmetsburg Reporter: The Kossuth county fair, held at Algona during four days of the, past week, was a marked success fn every way. The exhibits of every kind were very large, that of corn, vegetables, and fruit being decidedly so. In fact the Kosauth county fair grows better ye,ar by year, anfl stands at (he head of the list of county fajre of northerp Jpwa, The, people of , take great pp}d,e }s> it, vie with each Qtber in PERSONAL MOVEMENTS.

GALBBAJTB & CO. Sui-vcyoi-s at Work on a Line to Bun From St. Paul to Oitiaha by Way of Algona. There seems to be something in the rumor of a new line of railway to be built by the Northwestern from Algona to Denison. The Odeboldt Chronicle says surveyors are at work on the lower end of the line, but thinks it may be a bluff to keep the Illinois Central from building from Port Dodge to Council Bluffs. A look at the map will show that the Northwestern by putting in the line contemplated would have a very short cut from St. Paul to Omaha. Stranger things have happened than that the line should be built. Here Is what the Chronicle says of the matter: The Northwestern has had a gang of surveyors working in the Boyer and Soldier valleys in Crawford county for the past two weeks. At first it was thought that the surveyors were locating the new line which the Illinois Central will build between Omaha and Fort Dodge, but some supplies which came dead-head to Wall Lake for the party furnished conclusive evidence that the Northwestern was behind the scheme. The natural route for such a line would be Irom Algona to Sao City, passing through Pooahontas Center, thence to Wall Lake on the Moville line, and thence down the Boyer to Denison. This would be practically an air line from Omaha toSt. Paul, for the Northwestern has a line from Algona to St. Paul and from Denison to Omaha. The only object in building the road would be to get a shorter line from Omaha to St. Paul than the Northwestern now has via Sioux City, for there would be practically no business along the line that does not now go to that company. The necessity for a shorter line arises from the contemplated extension of the Illinois Central from Port Dodge to Omaha, the latter company controlling the Minneapolis & St. Louis, which would give it a shorter line than the Northwestern now has between Omaha and St. Paul. It may turn out, however, as has often been the case, that the new line is a bluff, designed to keep the Illinois Central from taking the Boyer valley route. Moreover, the distance from Wall Lake to Denison via Maple River Sunctlon is only 15 miles longer than the route surveyed along the Boyor between Wall Lake and Denison, and it does not seem probable that the company will build 26 miles of new road in order to shorten the distance 16 miles, when it already gets every pound of freight shipped along the line of the survey. The Chronicle does not believe the line will be built; but there is no telling what a railroad company may do. AN AFTERNOON OF BPOET.
