In one family there-are three children sick with whooping cough and another down with pneumonia, and the father with no source' of income except &uch odd jobs as he can,get now and then. What these men need and want is work. 'They are willing to accept! common laborer's wages and they will do any sort of work. : Now therefore, if there are any firms about town, or if there is any individual, who has work he want!^ done, or can make work for which he can afford to pay a reasonable wage, or who can suggesfc any method by which employment might be afforded, they are asked to get in touch, either with the Salvation Army or with Secretary Dorscy, of the Cliambei^ of Commerce. Thej very best help that caia be given nnyboily in need is to help him to help himself.
