they have done nothing my wife
and I could not have done. The
' high, cost of living has not kept
us poor, it has been a lack of com

tion to make even slight sacrifices
that accounts for'our present con
dition. "I waste no sympathy on my
self and have none to waste on
those whose condition is the same

MOUNDS A -HOME FOR OLD
y FIRE HORSES .
Mrs. Jacob Ehrlich of New
York, who founded the "Mills"
hotels for horses, is now engaged
in raising a furid for a home for
decrepid fire and police horses.
These faithful animals, after
they have served their usefulness
in city departments are sold, oft
en falling into the hands of junk
dealers, rag peddlers or huck
sters who frequently illtreat
them.
Enlisting the interest of Ella
Wheeler Wilcox, Homer Daven
port, Mrs. Minnie Maddern Fiske
and others, Mrs. Ehrlich visited
Police Commissioner Waldo. The
result is that the city charter is
likely to be amended so that Mrs.
Ehrlich or others who show
proper credentials may purchase
the horses without the necessity
of their being sold to the highest

Thus their days will end in
peace and comfort.
If the pet of a fire battalion has
served his days of usefulness Mrs.
Ehrlich will be able to bid him
