The Much Disputed Value of "a
Million Cancelled Stamps.
From the Ladle's HomelJournal.
J Letter addressed to the CJnited
datea minister to Switzerland,
promptly replied to by him. die
closes the fact that at Locie, a
small Swiss town near Neuchatei,
there exists a model orphanage
for girls, whose funds have been
for many years largely increased
by the sale of cancelled postage
stamps. The home was establish
ed in 1814 by a Swiss lady, and was
designed as a place of shelter for
orphan girls, irrespective of creed
or nationality. A house was tak
en, and soon as manj aB a hun
dred were sheltered. The stamp
rade in this connection was start
ed by a lady, who, on hearing
that old postage stamps might be
sold advantageously, volunteered
to help tbe orphans by begging
stamps from her friends and sell.
Them through the medium of cer
tain stamp dealers, who waB will
ing to waive their rights to any
commission. Her effort soon be
came known, and now benevolent
people the world over are helping
the institution by sending to tbe
orphanage packages of old postage
stamps, which are sorted and dis
posed ot to the best advantager
As a help to those who may feel
anxious to send stamp offerings to
contribute to the support and edu
cation of these destitute children

them with the information that
managers of tne orphanage only
accept parcels of stamps from
benevolent friends, and that no
notice whatever will be taken of
