MY VALENTINE
I sent my love a valentine—
She was but six while I was nine.
The card bore hearts and roses fine,
And read, "I love you, Valentine."
I sent my love a valentine.
Ah, many swains for her did pine,
With riches more, far more than mine,
But yet—"l love you, Valentine."
I send my love a valentine.
Each year I write the same dear line,
Content to us* the faithful sign
That still "I love you. Valentine."

An important'"event of the social sea
son is the "bal poudre" of the Good
Shepherd auxiliary to be given at Kra
mer's the evening of February 16. Most
elaborate preparations have been made
for this event, and the women interest
ed have lost no opportunity to arrange
for a delightful occasion. The Shrove
tide costume party of last year given
under the auspices of the Good Shep
herd auxiliary was one of the notable
successes of the year.
The Good Shepherd is an organiza
tion of women for the purpose of lend
ing a helping hand to the Good Shep
herd work in the preservation of young
girls who are in danger and in the
reformation of those who have become
more or less incorrigible. The officers
of the organization are: President, Miss
Susanne E. Lynrh: first vice' president,
Mme. Ida Hancock; second vice presi
dent, Mrs. Thomas "W. Phillips; secre
tary, Mrs. P. G. Cotter; financial sec
retary. Miss Marie Rose Mullen; treas
urer, Mrs. Dan Murphy.
Bishop Conaty introduced the Sisters
of the* Good Shepherd into Los Angeles
In June. 1908. and since that time hun
dreds of girls from the courts, from
the'humane societies and other sources,
not only belonging to Los Angeles, but
to the. entire state, have passed under
their influence. The gentle, kindly in
fluence which comes from those white
robed sisters whose lives are conse
crated to the reformation of women,
has been the means of saving many er
ring girls. They are taught the domes
tic duties and are trained to be inde
pendent, while they are encouraged to
look forward to the prospect of rid
ding themselves from any stain that
may have come from their previous life
of waywardness. More than 60 per cent
of the girls who have passed through
the Good Shepherd home during these
five years have been non-Catholics. The
efforts of the sisters have been to de
velop a sense of honorable womanhood
while not interfering in any way with
any religious opinions which they may
conscientiously-hold. At present sixty
five girls are in the institution, which
is supported largely by the free offer
ing of friends of the institution and
helped somewhat by the work which
the girls do in the sewing classes and
in the laundry. The experience of the
sisters teaches them that the active,
industrial life contributes largely
toward the upbuilding of a better sense
of self-reliance. The Good Shepher;l
auxiliary was formed to help the good
sisters and has met with a -splendid re
sponse on the part of all classes in the
community, so that the work of estab
lishing the laundry which was under
taken by the auxiliary has been com
pleted at their expense.
