$25, the smallest 10 cents, but all
representing the warm heart of
our citizenship. Our people have
again demonstrated that spirit of
sympathy of suffering humanity
which marks them as worthy fol-
lowers of Him who never turned
a deaf ear to the cry of distress."

And not make a face or groan
'cause it's time for it;
Why, he never even kicks a mit!
