The annual report of the Wo
man's Guild of Christ Church is
most encouraging. There are
about thirty active members.
At the election of officers Miss
Mary Harrison was retained as
President, Mrs. Didlake as Vice
President, Mrs. Williamson as
Secretary, and Miss Johns as
Treasurer. Mrs. SafTarans was
elected 2d Vice President. The
Treasurer reports $843 received
during the year and a balance in
the treasury after liberal dis
bursements. Two of the latest
of these were $10 to the Bishop's
fund and $10 to the Woman's
Auxiliary. The annual mem
bership fee of twenty-five cents
was collected for the ensuing
year. Mrs. Cronley's "quarter"
came in the shape of a full-grown
five-dollar bill. The
Which was sealed at the begin
ning of Lent as a receptacle for
pennies of self-denial from the
members as an extra offering to
be applied to the purchase of a
stone baptismal font for the
Church of the Good Shepherd,
was opened and the sum of
twelve dollars represented the
savings. Miss Marv Downinir's
Sunday School class added eight
dollars, saved in the same way,
to the .sum, and thus the Guild
has twenty dollars towards the
price of the font, which will be
twenty-six dollars. This monev
dropped into the tcmpory bank
at odd times aud never missed,
is just so much picked up from
an unrealized source. Mrs. Cron
ley, with her customary comiiig-to-the-rescue
promptitude, will
donate the uccessarv lettering on
on the font, which will be set in
place as soon as finished.
Mrs. Ockford,' chairman, re
ports 68S garments made during
the vcar, thirtv-seven women
employed, five hundred garments
sold, and one hundred aud fif
teen given away. Mrs. Winston,
Mrs. McDowell and Mrs.
each gave a whole piece of cloth
to be made up. The cutting
committee consists of two ladies
who volunteer each each week, i
all taking turns, to spend an
hour Thursday morning at this
arduous task. The women come
in groups and take the work
home. Sometimes twentv-five
or thirty garments are cut at one
Airs. Wm. Warren, chairman,
reports $928.96, all given in ten-
cent pieces. Let not the Guild,
in the larger interests of the In
firmary, lose sight of the smaller
interests of the Church Home.
To raise fifteen hundred dollars
from so small a beginning seems
at first chimerical, but money
planted in good soil will grow.
The Home is a noble institution,
giving aid to many whom mis
fortune has cramped in worldly
resources. The advisability of
a permanent endowment fund
should not be overlooked. Mrs.
Wa-ireu has the sum out at in
terest in two portions and guards
her treasure with commendable
One of the most complete
Lenten offerings was the Dorcas
Pag, which contans several dozen
garments for a new-born babe and
its mother, a complete outfit
made by the deft fingers of Mrs.
SafTarans, Mrs. Harbison, Mrs.
Peckley, Mrs. Swift aud Miss
Gabie Swift. There are little
wrappers, flannels, napkins,
nightgowns, (for the mother),
pins, strings, powder-bag every
thing. And to this charming
array of useful and pretty things
Mrs. Winston added a hot-water
rubber bag. The outfit is to be
loaned to the mothers among the
poor for six weeks, after which
period the articles will be re
turned, neatly laundried, to the
Dorcas bag for the next applicant.
CIETY Has made perhaps the best re
cord of all tlve various branches
of Guild work. There are now
enrolled twenty mothers, who as
semble every Friday from three
to five at the Good Shepherd
Mission to learn to sew aud to
provide themselves with needful
clothing. Part of the time is
taken up in singing gospel
sons. The women are regularlv
organized. They have been thus
associated about two months aud
have paid in S10 for garments.
Their savings bank, to feed
which seems the most delightful
thing that they do, shows five
dollars hoarded by extra exer
tion, or some special act of self
denial. Cast-off clothing is made
over by their faithful fingers into
habitable articles. Mrs. (iood
loe, Mrs. Wm. Prucc, Mrs. Ock
ford, Mrs. Peckley, Mrs. SafTa
rans and Miss Harrison have
been in attendance at the meet
ings. Another sympathizer in
the good work has played the
organ and sung songs with them.
The Rev. George W. Duulap
made a brief but timely address
to them one day, full of encour
agement and feeling. The do
nations to this society have thus
far been $5 from Mrs. Woodward,
5 1 from Mrs. Cronley to buy
soap, 25 cents from Mr. Duulap
to the little savings bank, piece
of cotton from Airs. France, piece
of calico from Airs. Wm. Prtice,
garden seeds from Mrs. A. H.
Lyne, seed from Mrs. Muir,
large box of clothing from Mrs.
Ward, basket of clothing and
bundle of papers from Mrs.
Potts, and a bundle of papers
containing cuts of famous horses,
from Airs. Lewis Cook. The
papers were were given to put
on the walls of the dwellings.
Auv kind of cast-off clothing is
acceptable. Stockings that are
worn may be shaped anew and
made over. Donations will be
received at the Mission on Fri
day afternoon of each week.
This charity bears more prolific
promise of outgrowth than any
previous attempt in the direction
of helping the the poor. A friend
took some literary papers last
week and they were seized with
as much eagerness as though the
society had been a literary as
sembly. TIIK COAL
Supply has given out and no
more will be bought till next
season. Miss Pean, chairman,
reports one thousand bushels ap
plied during the six months just
past. One hundred and twenty
one families were made com
fortable, some of them more
than once. No other church so
ciety has such a record. Py
conferring with committees from
other churches it has been
learned that their plans and
modes of operating in the lines
of charity are altogether different.

"Oil, pupa !" cried Douglas, run
ning into his father's study; "Al
bert lias taken all my monev !
He says it is his!'' and the little
fellow fobbed aloud in his grief.
13 It
monev ! What did he do that for?"
and the father turned quickly
from his desk. "Come, come,my
boy, don't cry. Tell me about it."
The kind arm was around him
aud the boy eobbed out his tale
of woe.
"Why, I took Albert's sled out
coasting and I broke it and
he he says I mmt pay for it
and betook my pretty new silver
quarter out of my savings-bank. "
Then Douglas broke out afresh,
rubbing his big black eyes with
his soiled fist till his fiu-e was
smeared with tears and dirt.
'Hush ?h,inyboy. Pe quiet
and talk so that I can ;et at what
you mean' said his father, taking
him on his knee.
"That's all papa. I broke his
sled on the hill out there. The
other sleds ran against me, and
now Albert is so angry, that he
sa s I must pay for it but, oh,
papa, I didn't want him to have
my new quarter !"
"And so he shall pay for it,
papa !" shouted Albert, bursting
in with cheeks all rosy f rom the
cold and fiom anger. He bad
caught the last words as lie slam
med the door. "Tin t's no wuv
to treat anybody. I wouldn't be
so mean !" and the boy flung his
cap on a chair and stood up to
the lire.
"Take care, Albert," said his
father gravely, "reniembt r where
you are. Go hang you cap in the
proper place; then come back and
I will hear your story."
Albert obeyed, but was so ex
cited that he began his speech
almost before he got back.
"Stop, stop," said his father;
"not so fast. Pegin again and
talk quietly."
"Papa, it was my new sled,"
the boy burst out again; he didn't
ask me to lend it to him. He took
it while I was at school, and now
one of the runners is all broken.
And I was going to have such a
good time with the boys ! I'm
going to take it to the shop and
he shall pay to have it mended."
"Well, did you ask him to pay for
it?"" No, papa, he didn't," put iu
Douglas, who felt that he had a
"Hush one at a time," said
his father.
"Mouse asking him: I knew
he wouldn't doit," said Albert, iu
in sullen tones, and looking down.
"Do you thiuk it fair to take
his money out of his box? AVould
I go to a gentleman's safe and
take money that he owed me? I
grant that Douglas did not treat
you well. Put think about it and
see if you have behaved houor
ably. You have broken out iuto
