In piy judgment-it is for a library Building. The other day I visited the exquisite Wrenn Library of the State University.

The room is mag- nificently fitted for the 6,000 precious volumes. To handle a book owned by Ben Jonson and See his name written by his own hand, to.peruse a beautifully written manuscript of Edgar Allen Poe, and the like—this experience gives one thrills. And what marvellous bindings! In his Dedication address Dr. Griffith, the Curator, said: "Now a library is not all of a university. Far from it! Yet the library, and tne use made of it —th...
