In\e".I public opinion expressed i'lf adversely in petitions to the city council and police commissioners to put do\vu the movement for the establishment of 6iK'i.a home in fair Atlanta. There is no doubt however that the pnr- poe of the home was not understood generally but the motives of the promoters were urely not misinterpreted. The home was established first at one place then another nd another then it was moved again and rLOBBNCB'CBITTEXDEN HOME. Bfer some time was still again removed u the present place on the city's land and i. a few weeks it will be mo-mi for the t-h and last time.

The city of course has the' right to send any girl who is under eighteen and Is in condition that makes It necessary for her to enter the home but recently two sent cut by the city were not received for good and sufficient reasons.

Was Started. About a year ago irs.'M. . Wolfe of New Orleans came to Atlanta to secure money for a home for fallen girls in New Orleans. She brought with her letters of introduction from the mayor of that city and brought testimonials from th best and ni'ij prominent citizens of the same place. la the course of her stay In the city she ca-d ou Dean Robert Barrett who had b'-eii nun\ to her an one who would lend hr -very aid in his power. Mrs. Wolfe caiii-j 011 him and the result was that she d the co-operation of one of the most fari'-st workers in Atlanta and one who t-'s bored early and late for the gnccess of the home Mrs. Kate Barrett But let Mrs. Barrett tell the story "I h -ard of Mrs. Wolfe and her mission WM r.Ms. Barrett speaking to me "but at the time although I approved most heartily t' --v \vnrktdid not have the least Idea of f" riii into it as I hare done. One day JI"- Wolfe came to gee Dean Barrett and t- "at.,1 me jnto the room and Introducefl e ' her telling me that the work was in KY line "Sh. explained to me the work and I saw lbs IT was-a good one. With other ladies J prcrailed upon Sirs Wolfe to come to A' where we determined to begin the IM work. 'V 'e rented a house out on Marietta p.ivjnp three months' rent in ad\Ve had no idea that we would f"- -'rrheil but soon found out that we j mistaken. The people living near it up a wrong idea of the character of work and petitioned the police com- K.neri to hare UK moved. This we r bilged to do although we protested i' We were using the kouse ft a private I" .f-noe and not ns a society. At that Jiuj- we had three girls. We then moved T 'lifTerent street on the other aide of n. but in less than three days were rr r.f. to mo\'e again on account Of j--i-ijcins. We lost four months' rent h had all been paid in advance and t.i--g T' been able to get a cent back. this took place in the summer and fall M we neTer ceased to try. 1 went be- l"ft the city council and so did Mrs. Wolfe llrt i also went before the board of police liwionws where I had been um- 1 to show cause why we shouldn't be hed for breaking a city ordinance was the first of Noremher that -we rt formally under the protection of city on Mitchell itreet but. In our & forther Friendless tnoTed from the "Peters street place to the new home \Ye decided to take up residence In that place. It appeared however as if the people wherever we went refused to understand our work and a petition was presented for our removal. I also heard that there were threats to burn us out. The city council finally granted us the use of four acres of the city's ground lust this side of the garbage ground and allowed us $1UU each month. There was a little cottage out on the place already and after patching it up a little 'to moved out and decided to go to work immediately to raise money for the building cf a home. 1 can assure that we didn't make very much progress until Mr. Oiitenden came to our aid and let us have $1,500. we to call it the Florence Crittenden Home. This we gladly consented to do and from then 0:1 our work appeared to be easier. Wheu the house is finished it will have cost us $7,000 exclusive of the outhouses. The house will have thirty-eight rooms in it and a nursery a sewing room and everything complete. We will make our own gas. and have already got the large warm- air furnace in place. "The girls are all as earnest as they can be and work the day long. They have their own garden which they made themselves and they do a great deal of sewing and are always glad to get any work to do. All of the above was told by Mrs. Barrett as we drove out to the home. When we reached a small white cottage on a roadside out in the country Mrs. Barrett announced that it was the home. "But it is not the new home. added Mrs. Barrett. "There is the Florence Crittenden Home on that hilltop all surrounded by the pinetrees you can' hardly see it from here. At the opposite end of the four-acre lot just as Mrs. Barrett described it. stood the home. It was hardly visible at tirst as the top was stained preen and seemed to n.elt in with the waving branches of the preen pines. As we passed along the road to the still incomplete house Mrs. Barrett stopped to look at the garden. "All this said she "was done by our girls. They did nil the plowing themselves and it touk four of them. The horse had never been plowed before and it took two f them to lead him while two guided the plow. They have potatoes English peas radishes corn and all sorts of vegetables. and they are nice ones too. A barbed wire fence that looked a little weak was pointed out as the handiwork of the girls. There was a Ions string of it and it had beep put up on Memorial Day. There is a cow and lots of chickens at the home and the poor girls who are shut off from the world enjoy the work the attention to these affords them. The Thlrtj-Eifht Koom House. The entrance to the home is an arched doorway the entire affair being three stories in height and a fine basement. On the first floor is the reception room the nursery the dining room tho kitchen and a number of bedrooms. On the second floor is the matron's room and twelve bedroom Ou the third floor is the sewing room seven bedrooms and the maternity ward. The nurse's room which is on this floor is nest to the maternity ward and is the only egress aLd Ingress to the sickroom. The house as stated is otill in a state of erection but it will not be long before it is completed. The finishing will he in hard-oiled pme. In the basement will be the hot-air furnace and the fuel. The gas machine will be situated some distance from tbs house in order to lessen the danger. Mrs. Barrett hopes to get an endowment for a chapel as there is no assejnbly room proper for the inmates. At present in the home there nr thirty-three persons twenty girls and thirteen children. Eleven of these are from Fulton county and six are from Atlanta. Notwithstanding this the greater part of the money was raised out- Kide.of Jhe city but Atlanta still has a chance to assist in this good work as there is about S'.H still needed on the home which will fall due in a few days. The home will b opened formally by June 1st.

A London zoologist had a pet cat which he taught to sit at the table with him. One day having caught two mice she dropped one on his plate and one on her own a perfectly fair division. At Walnut Hill Court a pet colt jumped its pasture bars went uninvited to the church where its mistress was being married. and walked down the aisle to the altar. No gray colt was ever torn except -where the sire or dam is gray. The color is not persistent and when once bred out never.returns. It is growing therefore less common all the time. Animals which perform tricks are many. Boiing cats and kangaroos wrestling li one horse jockey apes and schoolmaster dogs are recent examples. A black and tan dog knows over eight hundred words so says a drummer and can spell them by means of alphabet cards. Canary birds can fire off small cannons and push wheelbarrows. The hand or- gun playing elephant Is a chestnut. A dog's sense of smell is something marvelous. If. in the course of your day's journey any dojr comes and sniffs at your knee your own dog knows it when you. get home. The political arrangement of bet' and ants are more complex than those of savages of the lower grades. Most animals have a very recognizable moral sense. Alabama's Progreii. Montgomery .Ala. May 5. The annual meeting of the Montgomery Industrial and Commercial Association has brought out many important facts. The increase of the enrollment of school children since 1890 has been 15 per cent indicating an Increase of about 4,100 in population during that time. The increase in the assessment of oroperty has been $2,000 .XXi. About 1.000 TJufloings have been erected during that period. There are 115 new establishments employing 2WO hands and turning out an annual product valued at $9,000,000. The increase in these establishments In three years has been forty-five.
