MJss Giles said in handing in her re
port to The Argus. "We only wish
that those who contributed to the
fund could have witnessed the scenes

have enough to do to see to it that the
poor families are carried through the
winter without suffering the need of
fuel and clothing and medical atten

children who received gifts this year
through The Argus Santa Claus Fund
in former seasons were overlooked:
that they waited in vain for a visit
from Santa. It Is a great disappoint

can appreciate, since we all have lived

NEW RECORD SET AT ,
THE POLICE STATION
No Arrest Made Yesterday and Only
One Man Spends Night Behind
the Iron Bars.
Yesterday and last night made a
new record at the police station, in
asmuch as there was not a single
arrest for any reason whatsoever and
only one man spent the night at the
station. This man was what the po
lice term a "sleeper" that is, an In
dividual who has no place to rest bis
weary head for the night and who
applies to the police for permission
to occupy a cell until morning. At
this time of the year there are or
dinarily from five to ten sleepers and
as many prisoners who are under ar
rest on charges of disorderly con'
duct or petty larceny or the like.
The record follows a run of real
light business at the station, as for
several days past there has been a
comparatively "clean slate." There
have been very few arrests made dur
ing the past week and those which
did take place were minor cases. It
looks to the police as though the
making of New Year resolutions had
would likely have been sprung. A
southern wind started, however, about
midnight, and this morning the mer
cury had risen to about zero. For th
