A short time age Horace found that

he hadn't time to look- around the city,
no he Inserted an advertisement In one
of the local newspspers. Another trusty
employ of the land office read the ad.
and wrote him a letter, which la sub
stance read, as follows:
t If you desire nice, quiet apartments
within three blocks of the federal
bonding.- at a price, so reasonable you
would not notice the outlay, ring up
Main I4 and get further particulars.?
-The letter wsa not signed. Horace
decided to ring up. He did not know
that Main lit was the number of the
county jail, as given m the telephone

found weight with the members.' . Dun

Kellaher asked for consideration of
the East Third street franchise just as
Sharkey moved to adjourn. Kellaher
was primed with much heavy ammuni
tion with which to blow holes in the
franchise to - the Harrtman lines, but
Sharkey succeeded In proving that the
auditor bad received no proof of the
publication of the advertisement of tne
ordinance In the official paper. The
council adjourned forthwith.
The McCusker gas franchise was laid
over until the past meeting.' '
Back to . the license committee went
the matter of the revocation of the li

tioneer at til H First street, eealnst
whom complaint had been made to the

granted a license, but one had been Is

Could. there be a more vital help te
poor, hard-working mother than to re
lieve her of the care of her young chil
dren during the day and thua enable her
to go te her work feeling that the little
ones will be weU cared for and safe
from harm? . This Is the work that the
Flower Mission Is doing at the Day
Nursery on Fifth and Burnalde. Here
children are cared for-from T a. m. to
I p. nv When they arrive In the morn
ing thslr outer garments are removed
and they ; are bathed and dressed In
little" blue and white pinafores, they are
then allowed to play In a large, pleasant
room furnished with IttUe chairs and
the long tables, such as are used in
kindergartens, On . the wall are Mother
Goose pictures snd there are many toys
for the cblldren'a enjoyment , At 10
o'clock every morning they are given
a generous bowl of bread; and milk but
their principal meal comes at noon when
they are given plenty of good, whole
some food, probably much better than
they ever get at home. After dinner
the blue pinafores are changed for pink
snd white ones and the children taken
for a tide or otherwise amused by the
Jadles of the Flower Mission. . Children
under the age of 4 years take a nap. in
the afternoon. Before a child Is allowed
to come to the nursery the parents are
required to fill out a card stating name,
age and home conditions. All precau
tions are taken against disease, and
children must be vaccinated. There are
three visiting physicians who look after
the health of .the little ones. The

will be remembered that the Fruit and
Flower Mission won second place In a
popular voting oontest not long ago
and the 1600 received wss the fund used
to start the Day Nursery1, -which' wss
opened two days - after Easter. They
feel that they have not received the help
