Help a Good Cause

From the December 6, 1901 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

An Opportunity to Help a Good Cause.

Miss Welty, a deaconess representing the Ensworth Hospital at St. Joseph, spoke to a large and interested audience at the M. E. church Sunday morning. A collection of sixteen dollars was taken for the benefit of the hospital and a movement set on foot to collect a barrel of canned fruit, jellies and other delicacies for the sick to be sent about the middle of December. Mrs. L. N. Torrey will solicit for this purpose east of town, and Mrs. Lillie Burris west. In town Mrs. S. L. Russell will look after the west side and Miss Grace Parrish the east side. Persons having anything to contribute can leave it with T. L. Howden at the postoffice any day next week.
