But It seems to me speak the English language fall easv r Charity Begins at Home (No. 2) Ada, like all other cities, has her constant calls for charity. “The poor ye have with you always” was spoken two thousand years ago, almost, and no process for the elimination of poverty has yet been discovered. The hand of misfortune rests heavily when it falls, and there are many who thru no fault of their own .have never yet been able to escape the blow of misfortune’s hand. The poor we shall have with us always in Ada. Not only the poor but oftimes the prosperous are stricken. An epidemic or an isolated class of illness may bring to the door of charity a family that has always been thrifty and prosperous. A week’s misfortune may abolish a bank account and vitalize a mortgage. When calamity comes the whole world becomes neighbors and must accept the responsibility imposed by chance and fate. Ada will always gladly take care of her own. But two pennies a month is a small contribution from the prosperous. A postage stamp is no evidence of giving till it hurts. Each month the people of Ada give for purposes of local charity only two cents per capita. This is the average for our ten thousand T>eople, as will be seen when we recall that the monthly budget of our United Charities is only $200.00. And one can read the expression on the Recording Angel’s face when at the bar of the last reckoning some citizen of Ada pleads: “During the blizzard of 1919 I gave a postage stamp to save the unfortunate of our city from cold and hunger.” DU.
