One company has 3.530 agents in Europe and in this country. The report of the committee on char- ity organization was read. There are seventv-eight charity organization so- cieties in the United States. The cities in which they are located have an ag- gregate population of 11.050.000.

It costs each to ferret out tbe frauds and to pre- vent tbe unworthy from obtaining as- sistance. On the same basis it costs SS7.27 each to make the 1.807 families self supporting.
