now full to overflowing, with 'soic
two hundred applicants waiting fpr
admission. Three hundred children
are now in the cottages and schools of
the Home. Children with living fa
thers, even the deserted, cannot be
received. The children need and de
serve help, but Ihe State should see
that fathers (o their duty by their
