An appeal is made to the charitable peo P e of this place and the surrounding country, to assist the Womeu’s Christian Association of Memphis, '1‘enn , in paying for a liefuge Home for unfortunate, help less girls. A piace has been secured fcr the sutn of $5'00 00. The committee of ladies have about $750 00 but fully $5000 00 more will be required to fiuish paying for and nuking some necessary additions and improvements. As most of the girls w ho seek the pro tection of this Christian home (now car ried on in a rented, unsuitable house) come from other localities in Tennessee, and from our neighboring stales, and very few from the Ci.y of Memphis, the ladies in charge feel impressed to solicit dona tions n! |l from every one who is willing to help the most severely criticised and neglected of God's suffering creatures. During the pa<t twenty-live years that this work has been carried on, over one | thousand girls have been rescued and re stored to friends, built up into respecta i ble womanhood, and are leading good, useful lives. | An appeal is made to every parent, and especially to every woman, to send us $1 loward- the reformation of some one else’a poor, misguided, unfortunate child. Having no endowment fund, this work has always been dependent on voluntary offerings. It is undenominational, being under the care of the Christian women from all the Protestant churches. Will not some good woman in each church help in this woik by soliciting con tributions of SI each ? Any contribution sent to '• Refuge Com mittee, ” Memphis, Turn., care of The Ollver-Finnie Grocer Co., will be turned over to the commute in charge and grate fully acknowledged by them.
