Orphans Home at York.
For the Hews.
York, Neb., March 4, 1800.
Several years ago when Dr. Armstrong,
of Park Hill, Platte county, waaplowiiiK
his fields le was strangely impressed that
hia farm should be devoted to an orphan
age. He then and there decided to do
nate the valuable property for that
worthy object." His daughter, Miss Lena
Armstrong, now in India was then study
ing medicine in Philadelphia. Upon her
return, during the vacation she brought
several orphan boys with her. The doc
tor welcomed thorn to his home nnd has
since, with a faithful guardians regard,
cared for his new wards. Being advanc
ed in years, be realized that soon some
one else must bear the responsibility.
Advising with Mrs. Isabel 8purlock,of
Plattsmouth, and Mrs. Angie Newman,
of Lincoln, he offered bit property to
the Women's Home Missionary society of
the M. E. church. The following year
Mrs. M. E. Roberts again offered the
property urging acceptance. Last No
vember, Mrs. Warner, of York, and Rev.
M. Hiltner, pastor of the church there
accompanied by Dr. Armstrong, attended
the annual meeting in Indianapolis, and j
there urged that the national Orphanage
be located at York, pledging $10,000 in
cluding Dr. Armstrongs farm.
Mrs. Clark. Cincinnati, treasurer of the
society, and Mrs. Aitkin, secretary, hav
ing already visited Nebraska aud being
much pleased with the climate and en
terprise of the people, urged its location.
Last week Mrs. Clark came on from
Cincinnati and located the orphanage at
York. She bought a farm containing
160 acres, all fenced. There is on this
land a young orchard, house nnarly new,
containing twelye rooms, seven closets,
bath room, store room, etc. Alio a barn
arranged for thirty cows and the horses
in use, a milk room with cold water vats
and refrigerators, house for the poultry,
corn cribs, windmill with one large tank
near the house another by the barn. The
property is valued at $12,000 and is nil
paid for by citizens of York except $3
500, the value of Dr. Armstrong's farm.
The citizens of York also gave oOO more
and this with the 600 generously donated
by Mrs. C'ark, will enable the society to
open the orphanage very soon. Boys as
well as girls will be admitted. All re
