It is a pure- ly voluntary organization, and is doing :i splendid work for the poor of the city. The ladies, who give their time freely to this cause, look to the people of the city to assist them financially, for it is thc only ciiy charity that does not receive a grant from the city. It had heen the intention of the ilissiou to conduct 'a tag day during the Dry-Farming Congress, but the idea was dis- couraged by the Board of Con- trol, as it was thought that il would not. be wise to attempt, to tag strangers who were here for ihe Congress. The ladles yielded to the Board's wishes, tlioiiBh it meant io them an opportunity of making several thousand dollars. In- stead of this plan, the Mission can he assisted la another way, and that is through con- tribution boxes, which will be placed in conspicuous points throughout the city ou Satur- day. The Nursing Mission is con- ducted ai a cost of a month. Ail this money is rais- ed in a voluntary way. The Indies are looking for the as- sistance of all classes of citi- zens, and they should not he disappointed, for the cause is of generous support. The Nursing .Mission does its work more or less unosten- tatiously, but those who are familiar with it, do not hesi- tate to endi-ri-'o it. as one of the clnritu's citizens should back- up with li'wal gififi.
