come one other than the occupauts of
the house. Had the boys kept in the

Help the Orphans.
How to help in the great work of res
cuing and training Armenian children
left destitute orphans by the Turkish
massacre. There are 40,000 orphans to
care for. Think of it! Only GOOO of
these have been brought into Christian
homes and Orphan Homes during the
four years since the Turks slaughtered
their fathers, and often their mothers
also. Christ goes out to seek the one
lost sheep, but who is seeking these un
cared for thousands who are perching
on the mountains of Armenia? As
children we sang, "Happy New Year to
all," but are you doing your beet to
make that true? How about those
orphans? Shall they be happy in the
Homes, or shall they be slaves in a
hartim, or wander from house to house?
Only $25 sent to Brown Bros. & Co., 59
Wall street, New York, will make some
orphan boy or girl happy a whole year.
If you cannot do it alone, get others to
help you. Have an Orphan club.—Help
