We have jnst entered upon another year of woik, and we wonder if our friends are sufficiently interested in us to be willing to assist us the coming year so ere can go on with a work whieh we feel deserves liberal patronage. The past year, üie nuinber in our sewing school has been steadily inereasing. We have seven regular teachers beside several who come in occasionally to assist us. Mrs. Mahan and Mrs. Tozer, superintenr1 the cutting and fitting. Miss Annie Wilsey and Miss Seyler have charge of a large class of little girls from flve to ten who arejust beginning to learn to sew. We promote them as fast as they are able to go in the advanced classes. We teach the other gids to cut and baste as well as sew. The past year we have sent out over seventy garments. The last half hour is epent in singing. Miss M ahan has charge of thi3 Department. We havereceived the following donations during the year.
