The Year-Old Association Is Splendid- ly Entertained by Its Accomplished President, and Eloquence and Wit Enliven the Rich Banquet Board- Progress ot the Work Explained and Congratulations are Exchanged Over the Bright Auspices. A significant event in connection with the progress of the Albert Lea library association, which occurred tbe. evening of the 14th in St., as a matter of interest and record de- serves more note than the STANDARD was able to give it last week. It was the reception and banquet extended by Mrs. O. N. president of the association, at her spacious home in The Park 10 the other lady members of tbe board and to a few others wbo had taken a special interest in its work, altogether to the number of thirty. After social greetings the doors of tbe dining ball were thrown open and the guests were seated at tbe bounteous board. The table was hand- somely decorated with carnations and smilax and presented a rarely inviting picture. Misses Clara and Vera Olberg, Zada and Joy McMillen, Lottie Ellick- son and Helen fiatchelder charmingly served the table and the discussion of the delicious feast was long prolonged. Tnen followed a program of toasts and responses, W. S. Krebu, with pleasing eloquence and wit, officiating as toast- master. Mrs. W. S. Krebs responded to "Library Work of the Past Year." She aaid: A retrospective glance at any work, basinets. or of life. Is satuilaetorjr onljr when It hasoeen marked with snoeess. Bow Is It wltb our li- brary? A lltt'e over a year ago a meeting was called to oritmaiie a library association. We lound ourselTes a library association wltbout Nine-Tenths of WorK Repairing After some Gun Repairer, Bicycle Repairer, or Sew- ing Machine Repairer, has spoiled them. In other words, it is a positive fact, that if there were not so many poor repairers I would have to saw wood for a living. a library, without a book, or a penny to buy one, bat we had a loom ana an abundance of room lor work; so acting on tbe principle of tbe proverb, "We can who tblnk we can." We bave tbe following results We have received from different sources In money 53. Our first fund was f 16 from an old library fund The rest of the amount bus been from membership fees, entertainments and donations. We now have 548 carefully selected volumes, besides valuable pamphlets, patent, office reports, a fine set of cyclopaedia and a dictionary given by tbe travel class. The librarian reports books taken out by tbose holding tickets and by tbose paying 5 cents a week for the privilege. Much credit Is due our president and all connected with tbe work for tbelr enthusi- astic Interest and tbe iplrlt of harmony tbat has prevailed, so It Is wltb satisfaction tbat we stand at this point of view and look back on tbe year's work and see success and not failure written over it. D. R. P. Bibbs' theme was "Eecollec- tiona of Former Libraries." Ue gave an account of tbe first attempt in Al- bert Lea to found a library, the articles of incorporation for which were filed March Tbe in corporators were Frank Hall, Samuel Eaton, Cbas. Kit- telson, D. G. Parker, J. H. Parker, J. Smith, S. fiatchelder, T. G. Jobns- rud, 0. W. Ballard, Augustus .Arm- strong, C. W. Levens. A. M. Tyrer, H. D. Brown and F. B. Fobea. Tbe officers were, Frank Hall, president; S. Batch- elder, vice president; D. B. P. Hibbs, secretary; J. H. Parker, director. Pleas- ant rooms for this library were fitted up over the present post office and af- ter about a year when interest lapsed and tbe library was closed the financial account showed the receipt of and disbursements of 8450.88, leaving a balance of 815.31, which on the orga- nization of the present association was turned over to its treasurer. Among the valuable bopks secured were 108 volumes of the rebellion records, which with others of the total number of 176 volumes were by resolution turned over by librarian J. C.

'he rebellion records and a few other olumes that were left have now come nto the possession ot the present as- ociation. Mr. Hibbs related many in- erestmg incidents, among others this omcidence: The year of the existence f the Brst library in Albert Lea was he first year ot no-license, neither asting longer. Tbe preseiii library ssociation was organized about the ime of the second adoption of no- icense a year ago, and has since flour- shed; but whatever may be the result s to the license question, gives assur- nce of becoming permanent. Dr. Blackmer entertainingly dis- ussed "Impressions of the Patrons of he R. S. Clements hand- omely treated "The Ladies of the Library Board" in well-chosen words, when Mrs. C. E. Brainard responded o "Prophesy ot the which was rich in imagination and lively with ersonal reference. Senator Knatvold oncluded the program with a thought- ul and humorous disquisition on "Im- mediate Prospects ot the Library." ocial amenities followed, and extend- ng hearty congratulations to the hos- ess on the success of the gracious and rofltable event, the guests at a late our dispersed, all being imbued with ncreasrd fealty and earnestness in the ause of the association which had been o fittingly celebrated.

All mothers are nvited to call and see the albums. J. A. FULLER. "Ice Cream" and "Mint Julep" Con- tinue to get Mixed up. To the Standard My friend "Mint Julep" comes back ai me with a sober article on the San- day law in which he states that the only places of business which should beallowed to remain open on Sunday are post offices, h very-stables and drug- stores. This last one 13 perfectly in ac- cord with his side's view of things Of course, the drug-stores should be open on Sunday and also likely the blind-pigs, and there should be a kind and easy going doctor handy ro furnish prescriptions to needy wayfarers who are not on to the game, at the rate of fifty cents a -prescript." But if any wicked clothing, dry-goods, grocery merchant or cigar dealer should be au- dacious enough to open his place of business long enough to sell a clean pair of socka, a loaf of bread or any other such unnecessary luxury he should be dealt with to the full extent of the law. Mint Julep" is much more moderate tban.tbe framer of the "Blue Laws." The open door of the saloon is a thousand limes worse than the back alley doggery, forty-rod whiskey or the quiet and secluded club-room where uundreds of young men have tasted their first glass of liquor during the past two years! Ueceivlng license money from saloons is a hundred times worse than spanding the same amount of money ma futile effort blmd-piggera and boot-leggers! How- ever, strange as it may seem, the good people of this town, appear to have had their fill of this state of affairs and will say so in a decisive and emphatic man- ner, April fifth. Until then, good by oh fragrant "Mint Julep." ICE CREAM, Beneficent Advantages of the B. L. Association. The semi-annual report of the Albert Lea building and loan association which was published in the STANDARD last week, shows it to be in a remark- ably sound condition.

The as- sociation is now offering to loan money on more favorable terms than it can elsewhere be obtained, the rate of in- terest being low and the provision for monthly payments is a special advan- tage to those of limited means who desire to build or buy homes.
