nied its removal to a new building. . . . The plan of an addition to the building, with special reference to the needs of the children, was largely hers; she was spared to see its completion, and met her death while placing the new rooms in order. She died literally in harness, as she always wished to die; and her name will be forever associated with the most important formative period of her beloved institution. After Miss Hayward's death the care of the library devolved for several months upon the first assistant, Miss Etta L.

From the first the cooperation requested has been given by the Overseers of the Poor, and to a smaller extent by some of the churches and benevolent organizations. The more extensive and complete this is, the more satisfactory will be the work that the Associated Charities can accomplish; and under the skillful, trained direction of the general secretary, it is confidently expected that the cooperation, which has been steadily growing the past year, will continue to increase. Up to March, 1895, the expenses averaged a little over $1100 a year, principally for the salaries of the registrar and paid agent. Since then the increase in the amount of work and the employment of more experienced officials has increased the expenditure for salaries, while the cost of rent, printing, and postage is much larger, so that it is estimated that from $3000 to $4000 annually will be required to carry on the work satisfactorily.
