THE ELKS AND CHARITY As
heretofore announced PJiocnix lodge
Xo. 335 B. P. O. E. has a charity
committee appointed for -the purpose
of making happier the Christmas of
poor children and families in the
community. To accomplish that end
the lodge has invited the public to
inform the secretary of the commit
tee, R. C. Whit marsh of the Pacific
Gas & Electric Co., by letter, of
needy and deserving persons. The
committee desires to say that respon
sive to that announcement many let
ters have been received that were
not signed by anybody. Due to the
fact that the committee has no time
to go and hunt up the people at the
addresses given, to discover their
worthiness or their needs, it Is fur
ther announced that such letters
should be signed. If a letter Is re
ceived from a responsible person It
is" quite likely one or more members
of the committee will know; or know
of that person, or be able to easily
find out. The committee can then
act accepting the word of the letter
writer as evidence of the worthiness
of the object of solicitation. By rec
ognizing unsigned letters the commit
tee might, easily be imposed upon by
designing persons- The signatures to
letters, are wanted merely, as an evi
dence of good faith and not for, pub

Before Remedy was Found.
Miss Minerva Remlnger. Upper Bern.
Pa., writes: ''For several years I had
nervous prostration, ana was utterly
wretched. I lived on bread and beef
tea because my stomach would not re
tain anything else. I took many rem
edies, but obtained no relief until I
took Hood's Sarsaparilla, when I began
to gain at once. Am now cured."

parilla, which purities and enriches the
blood, cures, so many nervous diseases.
