The lead ing men of Toclimwal took the mat ter up with enthusiasm, because the intended recipient was- so worthy, and the matter so urgent "don't you know?" The public subscribed in a most unheard of manner, and the providing of a home for the homeless, promised to have a speedy realization, but alas ! more than six months have passed, and the home still a thing of the future.
