Fresh Air Children.
Mr. J. Hassler Dietrich of New York
has been through here arranging to
have children placed in good homes
for a period of two weeks, by the New

This is a work of charity that ought
to be heartily encouraged by all who
are in position to do so. To be able
to give happiness, and new and higher
life aims to a child in distressing need
of both is not without its reward,even
in thie life. ;
Two things we wish to impress in
the minds of our readers. One is that
the children are respectable but poor
parentage. They do not come from
the slums They are not from the
well-to-do classes, but from that class
that earnestly endeavor to make an
honorable living. The other is, that
the children come clean, and free
from contagious diseases, The latter
is an important consideration, but we
assure our readers that every one sent
out is subjected te a thorough and
rigid medical examination before be<
ing allowed to *‘go to the conntry.”
