I All THE GOOD STORES I
I IN IAMONT. ADVERTISE f
M. E. S. S. RAISED $136
FOR STARVING PEOPLE
Despite the fact that Sunday
was a bad. disagreeable day, and
the usual number failed to attend
church, did not stand in the way
of the Methodist Sunday School
when it comes to raising money
for the starving children cf the
Near East and China, and this
paper rejoices with them over
their wonderful success. To be
exact $l36.r,2 was raised, but
they, are not going to stop there.
In fact the members of that or-
ganization are working as one
person on the serious proposition
of feeding and keeping alive the
•tarring people, and by all proba-
bilities a considerable amount will
be added to the above sum before
another we?k is paat.
The raising of the money didn't
•top them, for they at once tele-
graphed the amount to the Meth-
odiat Board of Missions, at the
New York office with orders to
cable it on to the devested coun-
tries. So >ou ace, right now,
while you are reading this article
the money they sent is in action

Just because you live in a land
of plenty, and do not hear the
wails and cries, nor see those
withering bodies of the starving
children, is no excuae for you,
dear reader, not to do your part
toward helping those who are un.
fortunate in the foreign lands.
Two weeks ago the Valley News
made an appeal to its readers,
asking for cash donations for the
Near East and China, where
women and children are dieing
for the want of food, where
mothers with all the motherly love
any woman can possess, see their
b*bes slowly ebbing from this
life all for the want of a little
nourishment. We stated that $10
would save a life. The statement
is true, and we believed that
many people from this community
would rejoice in giving that sum,
rejoice of the fact that they could
sacrifice a little in order to aave
the life of one of those little
You no doubt realize that the
writer is rather disappointed
You also have the realization that
possibly you haven't done your
share ao we ask you once more,
and for the last time through
these columns, to make your do-
nation at once-pay in at either
of the banks, or to the Valley
New8 office, or to parties who
solicit you with a petition. A
very small sum has been raiaed
mi 1 the fact that time is short
jnd quick action necessary, by
Wednesday morning, whatever
amount o/ money we have will be
on its way.
