to the transportation of fruits and

Federated Bible Classes at Banquet.
The federated Bible classes of the
First United Brethren Church, East
Fifteenth and East Morrison streets,
held a business meeting Tuesday night,
which was followed by a banquet. J.

of the Congregational Church of Laurel
wood, spoke on "Organized Adult Bible
Class and Its Mission." Mrs. C. H.
Blanchard, superintendent of the South
Mount Tabor Sunday school, spoke on,

ager of the Bulgln union meetings,
urged support of these meetings. Presi

Injured Worker Mat Get $60.
Believing that Nels Byrn, a laborer in
the water bureau, is entitled to some
thing from the city in the way of dam
ages for injury received while handling
water pipe some time ago. City Com
missioner Daly has recommended that
the Council pay him a month's salary,
amounting to $60. This action has been
taken because Mr. Daly got Byrn to
sign a waver, releasing the city from
all damages on account of the injury,
on condition that Mr. Byrn be given
some light work at a nominal salary.
It was found after this was done that
the civil service rules made the ar
rangement impossible, so the payment
of salary during the period Mr. Byrn
was on work was decided upon.

To All My Friends: I wish you a
Happy New Tear; also thank you for
the many favors you have shown me in
behalf of the Salvation Army Rescue
Home at 392 East Fifteenth street
Tou may ask why I should be Inter
ested in the home. I. like many another
man, did not realize what misfortune
was until the Salvation Army asked
me to see if I could not make rooms
out of the attic of the home. I agreed
to do this and it took me three weeks
to do the work, but I did it gratis. I
learned from the looks of many of the
children and the mothers as well, that
it was a good institution. I did not
know but that the home was paid for,
but later on I learned different! There
had been paid only $155 on it, but they
had obligated themselves to pay $65 a
month and 6 per cent interest. There
was not sufficient money coming in to
meet their obligations, so they came to
me to help them out by soliciting for
the home. I had seen enough or tne
work to be quite interested in it. I
therefore, consented to make the home
a present of one year's work at a salary
of $3 a week. I now have held tn
same position for over eight years, and
I have taken out but little for myself
during those years.
Inmates Number 20 to 40.
There is always a family of from 20
to 40 in the home, and no individual is
a member of the Salvation Army, but
girls, women or children who have had
sickness or other mishap.
Tou may ask. What has the Envoy
to do with this? I have helped to re
duce the debt from $7000 to $1700 as
well as putting $1000 of improvement
on the home, paying $500 street assess
ment and buying about $1000 -worth of
furnishings for the home, so you can
see that it is not to make my own liv
ing that I am begging. It is for the
Tou would like perhaps to know
where the money has gone. Money
came hard this last year. I am glad to
tell you I did get $1457.69 in cash and
food donations amounting to $214,
Then you may want to know what the
home got out of it.
I expended for room and board for
myself during the year $200; streetcar
fare, $21; railway fare, $8.75; stage
fare, $26.75; salary for myself for year,
$80. The total income from my work
for the year was $1671.70; expenses for
myself for the year $336.50, leaving
balance on hand for the home of
Expenditures Are Shown.
What does the home do with its
money? Payments on the home, $780;
street improvement, $74.25; new bath
tubs and fixtures. $125; fuel for the
year, $210; electric light for the year.
$40: telephone, $30; gas, $40; water, $12
Tou will understand that when there
is a family of from 20 to 40, it takes
something to feed them.
The girls and women stay, in the
home from three to four months, then
we get situations for the girls and
great deal of the time we care for the
children while their mothers are at
I wish you all to understand that the
Salvation Army, in general, stands for
lifting up humanity and to build the
Kingdom of" God in every individual.
We perhaps are not as good as you
think we should be, but we are always
trying to do better.
Last, but not least, I wish to men
tion the kindness of the different rail
ways in granting me free transporta
tion during the year and various other
benevolences which they have extended
to the Rescue Home."
I must also tell you that I have
preached in over 200 different places
in the interior of the state, where a
preacher, perhaps, visits but twice a
month and that is where my stage
fare has generally gone.
God bless you all.
