A TkMksclvtac Appeal.
To those who are acquainted
with the methods and the good
worn accomplished by the Boys'
and Girls' Aid Society in rescu
!inan( carin for dependent and
delinquent children of the state,
it is unnecessary to say anything
but that the society needs the as
sistance of the public at Thanks
giving, but as there may be many
who have not studied the work
or had occasion to know of some
of the good accomplished, it
would be well to say that this so
ciety is located in the city of
Portland but cares for all child
ren throughout the state of Ore
gon who are in need. The socie
ty has never been known to re
fuse admission to any child pro
vided it is healthy and one that
can be placed in a private home.
Neither has it refused to accept
any bov or girl who through in
corrigibility has rendered himself
beyond the control of his parents
and for whom at an early date
the reform school, or worse, the
penitentiary, would open its
doors. But in order to defend
this class and keep them from
penal institutions, the Boys' and
Girls' Aid Society of Oregon
comes along and takes the boy or
girl in charge and retains his cus
tody until they have ascertained
if there is any chance for refor
mation, and if so, the child is di
rected in the right path and so
saved from having the disgrace
of being committed to a penal in
stitution. But if it is found on
the other hand, that the child is
a degenerate and its association
with other children is hurtful,
then it is placed in some institu
tion organized for the parpose of
caring for that class oi children.
The society has on its files at
Portland, 3253 cases that it has
handled and cared for during
the period of its existence. It is
supported by state and county
aid and charitable contributions,
and at this time of the year it is
reaching out and asking every
person who is a friend to the in
stitution or to destitute children
to put their hand3 in their pock
ets and make a small donation of
money or to send to the Home at
Portland some article of provi
sions, canned fruit, vegetables,
or anything that would be useful
in the household.
At every county seat there is
an advisory board whose busi
ness it i3 to look after the inter
ests of the society and its wards
who are placed out in family
homes. In this county Attorney
Benton Bowman, of Hillsboro, is
the secretary, and any person
who has anything to donate can
find out where to deliver the
same by 'phoning to him.
lhe railroad companies and
steamboats throughout the state
have co-operated with the society
so far as to say that they will
deadhead all supplies sent to
them from any source during
Thanksgiving. Therefore it is
hoped that this city and county
will at least do their share for
the firood of the little ones who
are dependent on charity for sup

"If the mail order house gets
$1000 out of this county each
month that belongs to the home
merchants, the fault is with the
home merchants themselves.
The mail order houses advertise
and give us prices on everything
they have for sale. They tell us
what they have and what they
want for it Of course we get
soaked once in a while, and if we
do, we can try somo other house.
Most of the home merchants
who advertise at all don't quote
prices. They neglect to tell us
what we want to know prices.
Of course we can go to the store
and ask the price of this article
and that, but you know how it
is one doesn't know so well
what he wants to buy when he
gets in a store as when he is at
home. And here is where the
mail order houses make their
hit. They send us their adver
tising matter into our homes and
we read it when we haven't any
thing else to do, and every mem
ber of the family who reads

order houses, and I believe in
many things he is much cheajtor,
but how are we to know if he
does not tell us about it?
"A merchant must not think
that even his best customers
know his goods so well that they
can tell what he has without
