It seems' that after a 2-I-foot stag- Ing plank was already supporting four men, foreman MacVane ordered a fifth man, one Harry Neileon, to also take a place on the already well loaded plank.

We must have our farm lands tilled so as to produce the largest possible crops." Dr. Tltns again referred to the ne- cessity of operating the fruit and veg- etable cannery this coming year. It Is very likely that the cannery will run to its capacity and will bo able to take care of all the raw product that is brought In. Dr. E. L. Kniskern, one of the members of tho library board, gave a very Interesting talk on the new library. He said- that many people were sending fn second hand hooks and that they were greatly appreci- ated. Dr. Knfskern compared tho Centralla library with that of Cheha- lis. not In a manner of belittling the latter, becase, as he said, the Choha- Its library has a lot of good points that could be copied with profit. Tho Chehalia library has an income of per month; the one here has a monthly Income of ?L25. The Che- halis librarian gets a. salary of a the one here, receives assistant In the former city receives 20c per hour, or an average of per month. For the present tho as- sistant librarian in Centralia re- ceives no salary. The Chehalis li- brary pays per month, on aver- age for- lights, and-, about -per month for binding magazines. The lights here will cost about per month, as the building is about twice as large as tile otio In Chehalis. And about half as much money will be spent at present for binding books. Chehalis has no janitor nor heating exenses, both being furish- ed from the city hall, which ad- joins the library. The Centralia li- brary Is getting janitor service for per month, and the fuel hill has not yet been determined. The jani- tor is a gardener and is able to do odd jobs about the city in addition to performing his duties at the li- brary. After paying all the estimat- ed expenses, the Centralla library will have in the neighborhood of per month with which to purchase hooks. Not a very largo amount, it Is true, but it is hoped the amount will grow. Dr. Kniskeru said that the band would be offered the nso of the unfinished room down stairs for practice one night a week. It is not thought that the practicing will annoy anybody. This room Is also open as a meeting place for other societies. Secretary Herbert spoke a few words on the subject of tho band. He said that the recent destruction of the I', and I. hall by fire also de- stroyed a lot of music. L. E. Freltag 'the leader of the band, has undertak- en the task of financing the institu- tion, providing the members will give two nights a week to practice. All Mr. Frlelag asks of the citizens Is their moral support.. If the band gives a concert he would like to have i It patronized as liberally as possible.
