Acknowledgement of Collection Moth
er's Day-Funds Needed. .for
A collection of $9.05 taken up at
the union celebration of "Mothers'
Day" in the Methodist church last
Sunday, was generously donated to
the Home Charity Association. The
act was a most becoming one in that
it reflected the spirit of the occasion
and typified the mother-love w'iich
finds its highest expression in minis
tering to the happiness of Ethers.
Due acknowledgment of the contri
bution is hereby made, and it is
doubly appreciated at a time when
the funds of the association are run
ning very low owing to the heavy
drain being made by no less than
twelve dependent families in the
The limited resources of the as
sociation calls for the utmost econ
omy and discretion in extending
help, and only the most deserving
persons are admitted to its list of
The present revenues of the asso
ciation, from membership dues of
twenty-five cents a month, amounts
to only $35 a month, which is $10
less than current disbursements for
bread, meat and milk a month. At
this rate the small surplus now in
the treasury will soon be exhausted.
When this happens the association
will be compelled to make a direct
appeal to the public for special con
tributions to enable the association
to continue to minister to the wid
ows and orphans who are absolutely
dependent upon charity for the bare
est necessities of life.
The best way in which the men
and women of Lafayette who feel
any interest in supporting the work
of the Home Charity Association can
do so, is by ehrolling themselves as
members of the Association and pay
the regular monthly dues of twenty
five cents. Those who wish to join
the Association may send in their
names by mail or telephone to either
one of the following officers: Mrs. J.
J. Davidson, vice-president; Mrs. W.
A. LeRosen, secretary; Mrs. F. V.
Mouton, treasurer. For the conve
nience of members 'the monthly dues
are collected from them, at their
homes lty Miss Marie Josse.
Donations of clothing, shoes, etc.,
suitable for women and children will
be received by whichever one of the
following members of the Associa
tion whose home may be nearest to
the. donor: Mrs. J. R. Jeanmard,
Mrs. J. J. Davidson, Mrs. H. L Du
crocq, Mrs. P. D. Beraud, Mrs. Chas.
Checks for cash contributions may
be mailed to one of the officers of the
Association, and acknowledgment of
the same will' be duly made.

The "sandwich man," whom many
correspondents are trying to trace to
birth, existed long before the '40s.
And it seems highly probable that

Boz," written about 1S3fi. he remarks:
"So he stopped the unstamped adver
