Are Many Heeding Aid.
Crippled, unable to run around with
the other little people, and no toys.
Quite a combination, isn't it? And one
about which endless remarks might be
made, but the St Nicholas Girl only
wishes to Impress upon the minds of
those who read this column each day
MUt there are many such, whose little
hearts will ache Just as badly as will
this little cripple girl's, should they re
celre no gifts next Christmas morning.
Just whaT one person can do by ap
proaching the right parties can be
shown by the following; incident Mrs.
Graves, of Calvary M. E. Church,
lit. Pleasant, went to the members
of the Calvary 31. E. Home Missionary
Society, and asked for small donations.
They did not give very much,- but they
gave enough so that Mrs. Grove could
buy a whole boxful of dolls.
Perhaps not more than 25 cents was
contributed by each Individual, but
there was enough to purchase a very
substantial addition to the Balnt Nicho
las girl's stock of toys.
Bought Ten Coupons.

To be purchased and paid for by The Washington limes.
The ads in the classified advertising columns of The Washington Times are "littrl nuggets
of gold" they contain money-making, money-saving news -in wonderful abundance. We want
every reader of our news columns to read the classified advertising columns, for we want you to
.know of the many unusual opportunities to be found there; so we have devised a plan to draw
your attention to them.
Last Saturday we began to scatter through the columns of the classified pages a series of
separate sentences not parts of any of the advertisements. You are to choose ONE WORD
from each of these sentences and put all the chosen words together to form a well-known
proverb which we have hidden in the sentences. ;
For instance take the proverb "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today." It
contains 10 words; so you would find ten sentences scattered through the classified advertising
columns, from EACH of which you will choose ONE word to form the proverb. A new proverb
will be thus hidden away EVERY DAY.
Each day two pairs of reserved seat tickets to Chase's Theater will be awarded for correct
solutions. 1st prize, two tickets; 2d prize, two tickets.
Names of the winners will be published each day, and they will also be notified by mail.
Tickets will be delivered only upon presentation of letter of notification, at The Times office,
Room 727 Munsey Building..
