Institution, formed by local philanthro
pists, who. In 185, aaw the need of
aorae Inatltutlon to be organised for the
care of ' the dependent and neglected
' children of the atata. Among these
local phllanthroplata can be mentioned
"the names of "the Hon. tV. B. OUbert,'
the late W. H. .Corbett, F. H. Beach,
Mine Helen F. Spauldlng. the late U I
Hawkins, and others. - J
The work of thla ' Inatltutlon ' haa
grown year by year until now It ha
become . -almost- a household word
Proteges of the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society. -
throughout the. entire1 state of Oregon,
and many' children have had cauae to
bleaa tha efforts of thla aoclety, and
many mothers to be thankful that their
aona were aaved from Uvea of crime.
The receiving home of the society is now
very crowded, but the management aa
yet hare not refused a aingle child.
Fifty-six little children are on hand and
the capacity la but 40.- These children
come not only from Multnomah county,
but from nearly every county in the
atate It la to all Intanta and purpose

who are placeable find homes In fami

The placing of children In family
homes la certainly tha most" economical
manner of disposing of large numMers
of children, eapeolally when such chil
dren are placeable. The Boys and Qlrls
Aid society haa-now under' Ita direct
care between 400 and 600 children, and
every one of these children. If they were
not placed in family homes, would have
found refuge In an orphan asylum or
some pltfce of. that character, and at a
very great expense to the state. It, 1
true that to dojhe work of planing out
properly there is to be considerable
money expended for visiting . agents,
clerlctj hire and other employes, for it
Is one thtng'to place In a family homo,
and another thing' to aee that the aanie.
child Is accorded the care and attention
It requires; but- compare the total cost
of the maintenance of a placlng-out In
atltutlon with any orphan asylum. '
Take, for instance, the Soldiers' Or
phans' home at Davenport, Iowa, one
of (he beat Institutions In the country
of thla class. For each child there the
state paya 10 per tnortth,and the county
from which" the' chnd cornea ( per
month, or a total for each child of tl44
per annum. The average atay of the
child will be several years. Therefore,
compared with thla -the-maintenance of
a child-placing Institution Is a mere
trifle, and the results obtained, far supe
rior. As an old friend, for 10 year
auperlntendent of an Industrial school,
truly aaid. "Kvenan average family
home la a better place to rear children
than, tha beat man-made Institution ever
devised." so Institutional , men them
selves being judges. The placlng-out
plan la the beat for all normal, children
and tlie work la done at a fraction of
the cost 'of the orphanage plan. '
