I GLADSTONE MEMORIAL. f The new residence for students using the St, DeinioFs Library, at Havsarden, and built as a memorial to Mr. stone by his sons and daughters, was dedicated by the Bishop of St. Asaph. It-forms an eastern wing of the hand- some Gothic building of the library itself, and has- been constructed at an expenditure of £ 10,000, the cost of the entire scheme having been, roughly, V,60,000, of which C40,000 was devoted to it by Mr. Gladstone himself. In founding St. Deiniol's Library the main design of Mr. Gladstone was the effective pro- motion of Divine learning," but he recognised that Divine learning, in order to reacn its fullest efficiency, ought to be associated with the various branches of human knowledge, espe- cially with history and philosophy," and the library was accordingly formed on the widest basis. He personally transferred his books to a temporary iron building near the church, and afterwards arranged them on the shelves with his own hands and according to his own plan of classification. Nearly 30,000 volumes were re- moved to their new home, and many of them are additionally valuable to the student by the fact that they possess Mr. Gladstone's marginal annotations.
