PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF THE DEPENDENT CHILDREN OF THE SOUTHWEST "Pure religion, and undefiled, before God the Father is to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction."—James 1 :27. A MUSICAL TREAT BY THE WEDNESDAY MUSIC CLUB One of the best and by far the most appreciated program ever rendered by the Wednesday Music Club of Itasca, was the one given for the benefit of the workers and children of the Home on Friday afternoon, March 21. For some time it had been noised around that these ladies were coming to the Home, and while the kiddies did not know just what they were go- ing to do, they were sure if they came from Itasca it would be all right. And it would have done your heart good to see how the lit- tle rascals as well as the older ones listened with keenest interest to the beautiful numbers.

Worth and Dallas Presbyterials Our Home Life (Opal Dodson) I shall tell you something about how we live anil what we do at the Home. There are five children's cot- tages, three for the girls and two for boys. There are usually from eighteen to twenty children in each cottage; but at the little boys' home, F. M., there are thirty-one or -two. The reason for this is that the little boys are collected into one cottage, while the little girls are scattered in the three girls' cottages. The Steward has the big boys at Demaree Cottage to do the farm and barn work. Each cottage has a house- mother who is, you may be sure, a very busy mother, with all those children to 'tend to.

Matthews was at the helm here and he is a mover. Home Mis- sions was again the feature of the meeting, with Dr. Weaver in charge. The visitors were taken for a boat ride that afternoon at 4:00 o'clock, but wasn't it too bad that the land lubber from the hills of the Hill could not enjoy ...
