of education is the primary de

its primary department. Here

lected from the best literature,
history, folk lore and myths.
These are told not merely to
give the children pleasure, but
also to help them in their selec
tion of books.
Last Saturday Miss Spencer
had her first “Story Hour”.
Twenty eight little people came
to the Library and listened to
two or three old stories. Dur
ing the summer, the hour from

girls under ten who care to come,
to belong to her Story Hour.

vaulkinburg in April, lbUb, died
at the home ol her father-in-law,
D. Vanvaulkinburg, in Rulo, on
Monday evening, May 24th, ’09.
A few months ago they went to
Denver, hoping that the change
of climate would be beneficial.
She seemed to gain lor a while,
but in a short time began to de
cline and was brought back to
Kulo several days ago to await
the summons which she knew
would soon come. The funeral
took place from the M. E. church
conducted by Rev. Bennet Maze.
She leaves a husband and little
daughter, mother and sister, and
numerous other relatives to
mourn her early departure. The
sorrowing relatives have the
profound sympathy of a host of
friends. During her stay here
Ethel made many friends, and it
seems sad for her to be taken
' from home and loved ones so
young, but if she lias missed
some happiness here, she has al
so missed many sorrows, and
she went with hopes of a resi
dence in a brighter home. Beau
tiful flowers covered the loved
form, which was tenderly borne
to its last resting place. *
