How Could They ?
Editor of The Standard : In
yesterday's issue of your paper I
was shocked to se Buchan account of
the OxfordOrphanAsjliun,and while
I am not in the habit of writing
for papers, I shall put in a few words
tf I1m ft-. ...

feel it my duty to correct the state
ments of the James boys, because I
taught two years m the Asylum and
know whereof I speak. I do not
know these boy, as they have been
received there since I left last July
a year ago; but I am quite sure they
have sadly misrepieenttd Mr.
Lawrence and the institution gener
ally, No doubt they were lonely nnd
homesick perhup? sick, but e all
know how easily children become
prejudiced and ho v they can draw
on their imagination.
In the first place Mr. Lawrence is
not cruel to the children, nor are any
of the teachers or matrons. Mr.
Lawrence is a Christian gentleman
and is as much inter, si j J ;a ihe
welfare of the many orphans en
trusted to his csre as onecas possible
be in any work. I am in direct com
niun3C:;lon with seysral of the
children and have never yet heard a
word against Mr. Lawrence or hi3
treatment of them, -nd they are de
voted to his wife also, who is a
mother to each of them. As to their
nut gr-tting enough to eat I contra
diet this too, unless ttiinga have
hanged very much since I left, and
i think if anything, supplies are
more abundant. The State appro
priates a r.eat sum annually, and the
Masons (under whose direct super.
vici ii thi institution is conducted)
contribute liberally besides private
donations r.r.d their income from the
different departments of the Asylum,
viz : The shoe shop, broom factory,
farm, printing office, etc, "The
Orphans Friend ' at $1.00 per year
with several thousand subscriptions
would alone bring in a neat little
sum. Then the singing class trayels
during the summer giving concerts
in all parts of the State often mako
ing as much as $300 or $400 in one
place, Now with all this can the
Oxford Orphan Asylum be in such a
condition as represented by the little
boys ? Even if Mr. Lawrence were
disposed to mistreat the children he
could not do so without being found
The "Advisory Board" consisting
of five or six of the best men of Ox-,
ford and Grainville county are right
there to see every thing. And tbe
Grand Master and Board of Directors
also visit and inspect the whole in
stitutionaccounts and all. I am
personally acquainted with the ma
tron of the boys' building and know
her to be kind and sympathetic.
The boys all love her and would do
anything for "Miss Maggie." The
children do not have a variety of
edibles at one time as it would be
impossible to prepare so many differ
ent dishes for so many children
(about 225 I think).
They have good, plain, substantial
food, well cooked, and served to all
alike, consisting of nice light bread,
which is, by the way, baked by two
boys who were raised there, also

Pis tc.j ahrurd ?bon.fc not getting
enough water. They have a good
well and system of water works
which certainly afford a sufficient
supply of water for drinking, cook
ing and running the laundry. The
tew children who ran away there
were sent tor and brought back. I
do not know that the rule has been
changed. The Oxford Orphan Asy
lum is a grand institution a credit
to the founder and to the State. It
is mn in a most systematic way and
tbe advantages of the children there
far surpass many of our schools, for
they are not only educated, but re
ceive good instruction in housekeep
ing, cocking, sewing, printing, shoe
making, telegraphy, short hand and
music. There are three grades at
the Boy's Building and four at the
Girr.3 Building each under the
care of a competent teacher and
each of the other departments has a
capable matron who sce3 that the
children do the work well. I could
write a great deal mora concerning
this work, but do not want to be te
dious or take up too much valuable

more sympathy for an orphan than
I have, and I am glad they have
such a home as they haym Oxford.
Before I went - litre I had quite a
different idea of tLepkce from what
I haye cow, ami I sup pore manv
have the R-e idv t I had thac it
vas a place whav H e poor little -orphans
were kept, ragged and sick,
and with very little to eat and mea
gre advantage?. But my eyes were
opened and iusteid 1 found aj nice
and prttty a set of children as one
can tiad anywhere happy nnd well
most of the time. During my two
yenrs stay there only three died.
When eick they 're carried to the
hospital and cared for by the ma
tron, until well. If a doctor is
needed he is sent for and if the
children are very siclc their friends
are notified. I hope the readers of
The Standard Lwill not allow the
awful account ot the boys to preju
dice them in any way against the m
stitutKn. Again, I say it is a
worthy institution under the care
of good Christian people, and should
be supported by the citizens of our
Mrs, J. E. Smoot.
Forty Horses at the Fair Grounds,
I have 40 Oregon horses, whose
ages range between 3 and G years, of

They are at the Fair Grounds
where I exhibited my horses two
years ago, and where you have space
enough to see them well and do
These horses are the very best
Western horses ever brought here
and that they muet be sold, is rea
son for you getting a good horse for
a small sum. Respectully,

We hive really seen a man smile
he is ell kaown to the public
and one that is generally complain
ing and usually wears a sour expres
sion, and one that has lately enter
tained the opinion that the world
and its inhabitants had gone back
on him, but today we see him shak
ing hands with old friends and tell
ing them how it came about. Ht
says : "I cmie to today loaded with
things from my farm. For butter 1
got 15 cent; for eggs 12i; for chick.
ens 18 to 25, and to beat all cotton
has "gone yonder." I received 8 121
ceuts for my cotton, and if the- ad
vance wouldn't make an old man
like mycelf smile, nothing would.
In fact, every man that had any
thing on the market today got a
good price for it. Corn and wheat
are about the only things that are
down. Old corn is bringing 55 to
58 cents, but that can be eaten."
