Maine Destitute Children May1
Have a Chance.
_
Miss A. M. Kalloch, extension secre
tary of the State of Maine branch of the
New England Home for Little Wanderers,
has been in town for the past week. This
branch of the organization is located in
Waterville and on Tuesday afternoon in
the Red Cross rooms Miss Kalloch gave
a comprehensive talk on the work of the
Little Wanderers among the children of
Maine.
Miss Kalloch spoke of the different
phases of the Work and of the purpose of
organization—which is to rescue children
from want and shame, to provide them
with food and clothing, to give them in
struction in mind and heart and to place
them, wilh the consent of their parents
or guardians, in Christian homes.
The Little Wanderers’ Home has clung
tenaciously to this idea during the 56 years
of its existence—to give to the children
of New England a fighting chance.
Tile Study Home in Boston is the first
of its kind in the country to combine un
der one roof complete equipment in giving
children thorough physical and mental
examination and treatment. Every work
er by training and experience is adapted
to uie worx in nana. i nere are Dom men
and women on the staff which gives op
portunity for dealing with the older boy
problem, which would be difficult were
there only women on the staff. The
Study Home is especially equipped for
observing the so-called unusual child.
All the equipment of the Little Wan
derers' Home is available to the children
of Maine through the Waterville branch.
This branch during its six years of ser
vice has cared for over 1300 Maine chil
dren. All children placed in foster homes
by the Waterville branch are under care
ful supervision, especially as to their
physical condition, their mental equip
ment and moral training.
The N. E. Home for Little Wanderers
aims to assist and uplift the destitute,
the homeless and the orphan children of
Maine. It is their desire to be of ever
increasing service

THE FAIRY
A favorite story of childhood is that of the fairy who
offers someone to grant him any wish that he may make.
The nearest approach to a fairy in these prosaic times is a
savings account. Do you want to buy books, to get some
new furniture, to build a house, to educate your children,
to get married, to travel, or to satisfy some other com
mendable want? HAVE A SAVINGS ACCOUNT WITH
LS and you will be able to be your own good fairy and
not be compelled to ask favors of another.
