A FOUNDLING.
_____

Left to Battle Against the Chilling
Blasts of Winter.

     Saturday night, Mr. Horace Johnson, in passing Mr. Chas. Hank's residence in East Dallas, had his attention attracted by a noise like a child crying on the front portico. Proceeding to the union depot, he reported the fact to Officer Alexander, who returned with him and, sure enough, there was a four-months old baby girl wrapped in a shawl and lying on the porch. The little one's face was exposed to the chilling blasts and the snow had drifted over it. With Mr. Hank's permission, they carried it into his room where it was warmed back to returning life. It was then wrapped up closely and the officer carried it to the depot and delivered it to the tender care of Mr. R. D. Strother. It is a beautiful little one and will be well cared for. Written in the snow near the spot the little one was picked up, were the words: "Call it Snowdrop," which it has been duly christened. Had not Mr. Johnson been attracted by its cries, the child would probably have frozen to death.

THE WOMAN'S HOME.
_______

Work Accomplished During the
Month of September.

     The ladies of the Woman's Home held their third quarterly meeting this morning, Mrs. P. S. Pfouts presiding.
     On the 11th, a young woman applied and was admitted as an inmate by the president of the home. Two years ago, the same young girl was led to the altar, and there the vows were taken that should have bound her husband to her for life, but, forgetting all his vows to cherish and protect, the wife gave up all for him, he cruelly deserted her, and about to become a mother. She sought the friendly shelter of the Woman's Home. No father's tender welcome greeted the little baby boy, born on the 17th, and the young mother, feeling herself inadequate to the task of providing for the child as it should be cared for, a lady in a distant county adopted the little one as her own, and the young mother, crushing back for the benefit of the babe, her natural affection, gave it into the care of one fully able to raise it and educate it to be a respectable citizen of Texas.
