This moni?y is' t.hc balance held by the lodge in tiia treasury, \y the lod^els now practically non-existent, the balance has been turned ower to the nib^t worthy cau^e ot pibvldlng CUrlstmas cheer tor the needy ohesi " The objective'of ?1000 is being rapidly approached. The fund already totals over $800, and there should be no difficulty in raising the balance. The object in raising the ?100n, wiiich is three times the suni generally aimed at by .tlje Herald, is that not only.every kiddie be looked after on Christmas, but that -a sum of at least $500 be pi-ovided for the Nursing mission to aid in carrying forward' the extra work of relief with which the mission has been burdened as a result of the recent epidemic. Many families hitherto with a steady income now have that income cut off, and are facing a rather uncertain future. These families will need little comforts from time to time throughout the winter. . The 'Slission ordinarily receives an annual grant from the city of $1500, but tills will not commence to do the work that should be done. The Mission is the only organization of relief maintained in the city, and ndbly has its work-been accomplished. The work should not he allowed to suffer .through lack of funds. . . , Haw Hun Leaders Tried f oiStop The Revolution emitlMO'^lMt^ifi^finVwhten show f�r >^h� 1\m Mrn4 tha dMperate ililfiHiMj^lfhjlhr'rqTltt^^^^^ authorl-^i^t in^MrUntLtnatfe te\.cfruttrate 4he Gtrmaii,^rev6lutlon, Kaye come into the han'd* of the ,T�jagraph's Berdn correaportdant.
