San Jose citi/ens generously bought tags to the amount of $2600 in nid of the Associated Charities. No one will say that all these contributions did not represent a generous sentiment; yet it rermuned for the people of Hak- ersfield to reach the hiah water mark in tlie measure of their giving, and in proportion to its people this city outdid any coimiiimi- ty in the wtate. With n population of but little more than lO.IKHI men. women and children, nearly $5000 were contributed in Hakersfield and Kem to provide a home for tlu Children's Shelter. With some assistance from the outlying and smaller towns, the amount will pass the .*~>000 mark.
