The editor of The Garpen Is
land has received a letter from a
conern styling itself "The Paper
Mission", offering reading matter
to the people of Kauai free of
charge. Neither the institution
nor the writer of the letter are
known to this paper, but the liter
at ure accompanying the letter
seems to substantiate the claim
that the offer is genuine and that
the object of the Mission is an ex
ceptionally worthy one. The let
ter referred to above is as follows:
"I represent a religious organi
zation The Paper Mission (inter-denominational)
is to supply poor families who do
not have access to public librarits
and reading rooms with the best
magazines, papers, and books
religious, secular and temperance.
(Such publications as The World "si lfoaX rlaces. as well as country
Work, Review o f Reviews, St.
Nicholas', Youth's Companion,
American Motherhood, The Christ
i a n Herald, Sabbath Reading,
Union Signal, etc. etc. also a
great many of the best church
papers when a special requpst is
made for them and denominational
preference is given.)
"Not only do we regularly sup
ply thousands of homes with high
class reading by mail, but we ship
by freight and express boxes of
sucli literature to missionaries and
all other Christian workers who
will agree to distribute i t free
among the people who need it.
" This literature is all sent absolutely
free, and transportation prepaid.
"Our work is supported bv vol
untary contributions of the mem
bers of the organization and bv oc
casional free-will offerings from
the recipients of literature.
"We began this work about
twenty-five years ago and a great
deal of good has been accomplish
ed as vou will see by a reference
to our printed circulars, year book,
etc. Many thousands of homes
that were without good reading,
and in most instances unable to
buy the best, have been regularly
supplied by our Mission.
I am writing to ask vou to!
kindly help us enlarge our sphere
of usefulness by giving space in
vour paper for the enclosed an
nouncements. If vou can't use
ali of them pleas? insert as manv
towns and villages, who do not
have access to pnblic libraries and
free reading rooms. For the bene
fit of such The Paper Mis
sion, with a western Branch at
Woodward, Oklahoma, send free
and postpaid high class reading
matter to all who anplv. Litera
ture will be sent regulatly to a
family for a year or more if de
sired. Generous Loxes of whole
some reading is sent to missiona
ries and other Christian workers
who will distribute it among those
who naed it. This Christian or
ganization is constantly supplying
some 50,000 families, missionaries
Sunday-schools, Itospitals, college
and mission school reading rooms,
penal institutions, mining camps,
etc. with good reading. Almost
all the current magazines and pe
riodicals also such publications
as Youth's companion. Christian
Herald. Sabbath Reading. Union
Signal, St. Nicholas, Ladies' Home
Journal, etc. etc. are sent. All of
