Through the generosity of W. W.
Brown, of Eastern Oregon, and also
through tho efforts of those interested
in the Old Peoples' Home, it is probable
that within a year there will be erect
ed a suitable home for old people at a
cost of about $25,000.
Mr. Brown has made the generous
offer of $10,000 provided a like amount
bo raised by the institution by July of
nest year, it is felt among those inter
ested that of the iplO.OOO to be raised,
half of tho amount will be contributed
from points away from tho city, and
that all Halem will be asked for, in
order to secure the $13,0(10 for the
home, will be ."i.000.
Hiuce the institution of the Old Peo
ples' Home six years, those in charge
have nover gone before tho public ask
ing tor contributions. But with the
needs of the home constantly growing
and tho necessity of refusing entrance
to many entitle, 1 to the home, along
with the opportunity of seeming the
$10,000 offered by Mr. Brown, it is the
intentions of the board o' . directors to
bring the matter before their friends
sometime this fall. i
The homo on Twelfth street is not
properly situntcd for the comfort of
the old people, nor is it large enough,
as applications from worthy old people
are being constantly turnud down.
There is uo indebtedness, tho home is
has $,,000 that can be added to Mr.
Brown's Rilt and the $10,000 to be
raised, to bo used for the building of a
todllO home in tho city.
Prom a business standpoint, the home
is a benefit to the city s it, disburses
from $250 to $300 a month among the
businessmen, and of this amount $2000
annually comes from funds contributed
outside the city.
The efforts of the board of directors
to raise the $3,000 in the city, in order
that Halem may receive $15,000, has
been endorsed by tho Commercial club
and the Business Men's League.
Jn tho home now are five who are
over 80 years old and two who arc en
tirely blind. There arc many steps in
the present structure that makes it in
convenient for old people besides many
other arrangements to bo desired to
moke it comfortable fur old people.
While no plans ns yet have been out
lined regarding the laising of the $5,
000, Uiobo in charge feel there are
enough men of large affairs in tho
city who will help.
Mrs. Fred W. Selce, president of the
board, has shown Jier interest in the
home by giving $300 and it is hoped
there are others who will give a like,
amount, or assume the responsibility
of raising $500. Those especially inter
ested are doing their share as Mrs. ft.
l,. H'eeves has agreed to give $100 and
B. K. Carrier also will give $100.
For those who are not familiar with
tho work of tho institution, the board
cxteuds an invitation to visit the homo
Salem week. It is entirely nou-seetannn
Moreover, it is not a charitable institu
tion, ns it is maintained by an endow
ment funds and donations from those
who are interested.
But there is great need of a larger
and bettor equipped home for old peo
ple and in a more desirable location,
and with the offer of Mr. Brown of
$10,000, provided a liko amount is rais
ed by next July, tho directors feel that
now is the time to cull on their friends
in Halem, especially since of the
000 to be secured, tSnlem will be asked
to contribute only $5,000.

whose lives are punctuated with punches. How the "fightin'

by Dutin Farnum who is the star of this production.
