Holp the Sufferers
The story of the terrible disaster
that swopt so many todcathiu Johns
town, Pennsylvania, aud neighboring
towns, has gone round the world, and
its pathos lias awaken efforts to
relieve those that lost their all
iu the mnd sweep of the waters.
The dead cannot he recalled, lnit
there arc houseless and homeless wan
derers, in many eases the last of bro
ken family circles, whose wants can
be alleviated. To do this is the work
of willing hearts and hands.
A11 offering from Thonmsvillc
would be appreciated, aud it would
he a timely recognition of that Provi
dence that iias shielded our beloved
town from disasters of nil kinds. To
canvass for such a cause is incongru
ous and out ol‘place, but to give with
out solicitation is the highest form of
charity. The hearts and purses of our
Northern brethren have always been
opened when misfortune came to the
south, let us give now that misfortune
aud disaster have conic to them. The
Timi-h-Entewkihi-: will gladly take
