Omahtni Adopt French Orphans.
, Omaha people have ent $4,830 to
the lociety for fatherlest children ot
Fnnce, which has headquarters in New
York City. Madam August Mothe
Borglum hopes to be able to receive
an additional $170, so that when the
goes east the latter plrt of June or
the first of July to spend the summer
In Connecticut, sue win oe ame to re-
Ort $5,000 apent to care tor little
omeless French children. The com
mittee haa asked to meet Midline
Borglum when she comes to New
York and to receive a report of Oma
ha's interest in the work.
Ninety-two Omaha people now
have "adopted" these little orphans.
One friend of the cause collected
enough to adopt half an orphan, so
that now Madame Borglum is looking
for someone to take the other half.
Everyone has some little desire to
put money to some good use, and
what could be more sympathetic than
to save 10 cents a day to apply direct
ly to the needy object?
. A Chicago society editor tells the
atory of a young man of her ac
quaintance who adopted a little
French girl. (The young men, by the
way, seem to prefer to be "big broth
ers" to "little sisters" rather than to
"little brother.") This particular lit
tle girl sent her picture to her big
guardian, and a little later the mother
ent a photograph f herself, with
what intention t,he young man did not
Omaha men are not behind the Chi
cago gentlemen in adopting little
French girla. One benedict, who
(hall be nameless here forevermore,
telephoned to Madame Borglum:'
"Have you an- French girls left for
adoption?" "How old shall she be?"
madame replied. "That i the trouble,"
he aaid, "I have to be very careful
about the age, I fear I dare not take
one over 10."
Little Elinor Kountre received the
funniest letter from her French girl
the other day. Perhaps tome time you
have received a letter from a little
American tot wha was just learning
to write? Little Elinor a letter was
from a littl French girl who was just
beginning to write.
A charming letter came to Omaha
the other day from a little boy named
Roger. "Dear little benefactor: I
thank you for your sympathy and
your great kindnes to me. It is a
very deep happines to think that
away over there acroit the ocean
there is another littl on who share
my aorrow. I am to glad about the
45 francs you sent me, for it will give
my mamma much comfort. I am 10
year old and I live in the country
with my mamma and little brother,

him and that he is buried in the ceme

war, and mamma works very hard to
aupport my little brother and me,l for
we are not rich. - i
"In my great graitude to you, dear
little friend, I pray for your happi
ness and for your health, also for
the health and happiness of your good
parents. With my thsnks I tend you
one thousand good wishes.".
