She had cleared her hst, a magazine

or on the dresser, but wherever I put

I occupy the room."
Miss Reed Is not ambitions In the
sense that actresses usually speak of
their soul asplratlona.
"I want to be a dependable leading
woman for a star," she said seriously.
"Of course If I could be a star I'd be
happier, but It's better to aim at a
leading lady lamp-post and hit It than
aim at the star and miss Itdon't you

ravages of consumption and now the
other two are dying from the disease

Grand Opera Enjoyed.
After the distribution of the delica
cies and Toses those able to walk went
to the assembly hall, where a splendid
programme was given by Miss Diana
Bonnar, soprano; A. Stark, tenor, and
H. Johnson, pianist. Popular songs and
love songs received rounds of applause,
but a selection from grand opera fairly
brought down the house and the thump
ing of canes and crutches was added to
the noise of hand-clapping. "Silver
Threads Among the Gold" was greeted
with smiles mingled with tears. The
artists gave of their best and were
amply repaid with the appreciation of
their audience. Afterward they went
into the rooms occupied by the helpless
and bed-ridden, singing sweet songs of
hope and good cheer.
Among those at the farm are many
well educated and refined persons who
after long years of work and 111 heaitli
have reached a point when there was
no one to turn to but the county. When
the time came to say goodbye the
women of the mission and the enter
tainers were implored to come again
and were showered with words of gratitude.
