the most si ltish hearts would bo touched,
and the Christmas joy, which loving hands
now cold in death, once so gladly provided,
would bo given them without stint

it is that some ear should hear their pe

The people of this city have es
tablished the commendable custim
of remembering the little inmates
of the home al Christmas time.
Manv things have already bes.'n contribu
ted that will bring gladness to the little
lit arts But the number at the Home this
year is tlouble that of last Consequently
much more will lie needed. So let all who
are willing to contribute something to the
Inppiness of the little fatherless ones leave
their offering at Blaik Bros,' Store not later
