Ths Loeper Home.
We have. before us the hi annual
report of the Board of Control of
this home made to the Governor and
the General Assembly. This home
is entihli-h,.d on the Indiantl Camp
'lantation, in Iherville. Whi e on.

financial affairs, its interior manage.
ment is in the handa of the good
Sisters of Charity. Of the work of
these lhu.nle servants of the Lord,
Mr M. I). Logan, President of the
oardl, says :
"The chief credit of what is being
done at the Ieper Home is due to
Sister Superior Beatrice and the
three other Sisters of Charity in
charge, who relieve us so entirely of
all the details of management of
domd ste affairs, the nursing and
providing for the canfoit of the
ptients. What we may all do for
the Lepier Holme is nothing tmciparel I
to their unoutentalious work."
Elsewhere' he says : "the affairs of
the Home, thanks to ti e watchfiiuess
and patience of the Si-teis, run
Dr. Pierce, the physician in charge,
also speaks highly of the good woilk
of the Sisters. lie says:
"The rest of the patients. on the
whole, have enjoyed excellent health,
and are happy and content~ed as l,
sible under the solicitous and sym
pathetic care of the Sisters, who wash
and dress their sores, administer
their medicine and nourishment when
sick, providing for their amusements,
giving daily readings to those who
wih it, and nsmatructing-the young ini
the primary branchdies of learning."
The present number of p.tlients
living in the Home is thirty, among
wh mi are several'under twenty-one
years of age. There is a girl of 11
years, another of 13 years and a boy
of 12 years. Iu the girl of 11 and
the boy of 12, the disease made its
appearance when they were only
sevea years of age.
The helpless condition of mrny of
these unfortunate patients is thus
noted by Sister Beatrice in her re.
"It is painful to witness the break.
