T. Boaz, the super intendent, at his best, the annual meeting of the trustees, supporters and friends of the Tennessee Orphan Home today was one of the notable events in the history of that splendid institution. The meeting was a large and rep resentative one, including people from this, Bedford, Marshall, Giles, Lawrence and a number of other counties. They came in automobiles. in buggies, in wagons, on the train and by most every sort of convey ance. To them the Tennessee Orphan Home is their greatest and best in-, stitution. Its work is unquestionably as noble as any ever done by any organization.- It touches the heart strings, it gets next to the best that is ln man or woman. They have an intimate personal interest in the work. They came to see, to hear the reports, to talk with the little folks and to plan for better things for the coming year. There were probably not less than 50Q people present when the hour for dinner arrived. Two long tables. beautifully decorated in the flowers of the season, and literally burdened with their loads of good things to eat, invited the numerous guests to par take of all that they desired. There were pickles and cakes and custards, and pies and breads of all kinds, fried chicken, barbecued lamb and shoat, coffee, such a menu as would have brought joy to the heart of the possessor of the healthiest appetite. It was there in abundance and more than sufficient for the wants of all. Before the dinner hour, Superin tendent Boaz assembled the trustees and all who were interested in the work and read a a complete, detailed and itemized report of the receipts and disbursements for the past year. Every cent of receipts of more than $7,000 was accurately and minutely accounted for. It was such a report as gave every person present an Inti mate idea of the financial side of the honre and also made them appreciate what a burden the superintendent of such an institution must bear. In the course of his remarks and comment on the work of the home during the past year Superintendent Boaz paid a high tribute to the King's Daughters. He said that case after case had been sent to the hospital, but that no charge had ever been made against the home. The occasion was a great one. It gave to everyone who attended, who saw the splendid opportunities that this institution gives to all who oth erwise would be cast a adrift, a high er and better conception of this mag nificent charity. They went away more than ever convinced of the good that their dollars Invested in this home have done for the cause of hu manity. The trustees were all loud ln their praises of Superintendent Boaz and his splendid wife, to whose Untiring effirts la due the lion's share of the credit for the success of the home.
