That tho board of associated chari

denced by tha faot that since Mrs. V.

The board, through Mrs. Dnggan,

the relief agent.
Many persons who have come to the
Board of Associated Uliantus for help
have baen either given employment by
the board s agents or nave uhu directed
to persons who hare given fietu employment.
particularly interesting caso in
this connection is that of a man whose
home was in New York state and who
was compelled to relinquish a desirable

piritnone exhllarants, He drifted to
Scran ton and, happening into a meet-

covered that she was not, morally, what
she should be. He made a motion that
the vote be reconsidered and that the

cast the only aflirmative vote, when,
upon motion of Mrs. bwa.i, seconded

From the Icy North to Land of Flowers
and P.op'tual Youth.
A dainty novelette entitled "Snow
balls to Oranges," and written by
Helen K. Ingram, has recently been
issued by the New Florida Short Line,
which is composed of the Pennsylvania
railroad, the Richmond and Danville
railroad aud the Florida Central and
Peninsular railroad, the popular route
to the south.
It is the story of a young man who
for years was considered his uncle's
heir, hut finds on his death that the
$2,000,000 loft him is only a trust aud
that it is his duty to search for the roal
heir. lie decidos that if the unpleas
ant errand wore done ut all it were
well dono quickly, consequently takes
the New Florida Short hue from New
York, the land of snowballs, to Florida,
the region of warm suusiiins and
oranges. Hie travels from New York
to the south, where he expects to find
the missing owner of his uncle's mil
lions, are vividly described. The beau
ties of tho country through which this
most excellent line passes are dwelt
upon, and the glorios of tho Piedmont
seetiou given a prominent place.
The hero visits the Interesting cities
of Columbia, Augusta and Savannah.
He saunter among the pines of health -giving
Ashuvillo.spends a day at Aiken,
goes to Brunswick, to Fernandina, to
Jacksonville, to Tallahassee and to
Ocala. So absorbed, in fact, does he
bocome in the charms of the country
that he all but forgets the object of his
visit until one duy in Tampa a name
dispels the glamour of tho place and
seen and stern realities force them
selves upon him; he continues his
search and succeeds in finding the
rightful heir, or more properly, heiress,
whom ho, of course, marries, aud ever
afterwards blesses th road that led
him so safely to a wife, fortune and
lifelong friends.
The tale is prettily told, and is made
doubly absorbing by the delightful il
lustrations of the always interesting
South that crowd its pages, and the
lainty binding of white and gold,
le SOrated with Snowballs and Oranges
adds to its value. It is a book well
worth reading, and all who want a
