Consul Appeals for Aid
For Sufferers in Italy
MR. F. A. SCHAEFER, Italian Consul, has opened a subscription
list at his office for the relief of the sufferers by the earth
quake in Sicily and southern Italy, and he will be pleased to
receive any donation that may be offered for that purpose. Where
immediate relief is essential and the calamity is appalling, gifts
should reach the sufferers as early as possible to do the most good.
No doubt this community will heartily respond to this appeal
in order to share in the helpful sympathy which is world-wide,
and to assist in relieving the distress consequent upon this terrible
During this forenoon subscriptions amounting to about a
hundred dollars were received, and it is hoped that the response
to the appeal will be general and generous.
