a generous public has afforded the lit

Mount St. Joseph's ov,phan asylum four
weeks. ago.. In song and prayor the
tots joined in a thanksgiving "service
at which a benediction was read by
Father Hannigan of the cathedral. .
The day was "one of reunion., of
thanks, of keen gratitude, enjoyed and
participated in not only by the chil
dren themselves but by parents, guar

While the large structure at Ellis
and. Franklin streets is yet somewhat
cheerless -and barren of many com
forts, there was. a genuine hospitality
offered by the sisters and their charges
and all through'the great halls and
spacious rooms of the place the happy
laughter of the children could be
.heard.^ \ O-"'",' '- -/' s '
Father Hannigan, who_ has been
deeply" interested in the work of the
orphanage.^sent an organ to the little
improvised chapel yesterday, where
the service was held. .
During, the morning and until late
in the day little blue gowned ligures
were- constantly crowded at th,e door
of the new home, waiting for the fa
miliar face and the soft voice, in most
cases, of "mother." Up the stone steps
a constant parade of rne'ri and women
trooped with-sweets; clothing.'toys and
the inevitable doll that speaks . and
sleeps and weeps, with-, a broken saw
dust heart. . :'.
