Toe Herald considers it much inoro satisfactory io baud the mouey over to'organlzatloas dealing directly with the helpless and tbe is sure to where it will do [be mosl good. Oi these three tnstllutions little need be said: The Detention Home iu charge of Mrs. Corry takes caro of many helpless cluljren. just kind that should Mil forth a generous response. This Institution should appeal to people all over Southern Alberta, for the children come from all parts, The .Nursing Mission IE more of a city charity. This organization does an immense work looking after tbe sickly poor Hhp cannot afford a nurse and too frequently not even the ordinary comforts of life. It is depended on public support, and the Herald 'cheerfully recommends its claims at this festive season. .Tlie. Salvation Army has a poor fund spent in providing a meal or a bed for tbe stranded.
