Tho Charity Organization,
The charter, for this institution
authorizes the summary dispo
sition of beggars, tramps, and
uncared-for children wherever
found. In its workings it proves
to be the great artery whence
flows patronage 1 to various
branches. Children may be le
gally bound to the Home, if it
is proved that they are not be-
ing brought up in comtort and
in morality. They may be
sent to the hospitals if sick, and J
to good homes if able to work.
While in the Home they receive
instruction. There is no class
of criminal, or wanderer for
whom a suitable refuge may not
be found by this charity. Mrs.
