The Club Rooms, a handsome ex­pression of the appreciation and inter­est of the Vice-President and Superin­tendent of Construction, Hon. Ausburn Birdsall, whose sagacity and energy are a power to the institution constitute an attractive feature of the house.

They are substantially and appropriately fur­nished, and the walls, tastefully fres­coed, are adorned with fine steel en­gravings, photographs, and chromos, presented by thoughtful friends of the institution, the collection comprising many portraits of English and Ameri­can men of letters.

There is pressing need of a well-chosen library, of not less than a thousand volumes; and if any happy reader of the “Atlantic,” moved by a spirit of benevolent emulation, would be flattered by the sense of a good gift judiciously bestowed, let him or her send to the secretary of the Ollapod Club a box or parcel, no matter how light, the weight will be in the gracious obligation, of “books which are books.”
