DR. BARNARDO’S HOMES.

In its quarterly issue for March, "Night and Day” has an absorbingly interesting story to tell about Dr. Barnardo’s Homes, which it represents. It speaks about a family of 8000 inmates, admitting from below the poverty lino eight or nine hoys and girls every day, and comprising cripples, incurables, babies, deaf and dumb, and blind and helpless among its varied flock. No wonder that it needs money—money for the victualling. clothing, and countless needs of a big town ! This is the month of emigration, when the Homes- send off to Canada their spring party. Some 850 boys and girls, carefully chosen for health, for intelligence, and for industrious habits, have gone forth, bringing the grand total up to 18,994, of whom, it is the Homes’ proud boast, that 08 in 100 have proved themselves worthy and successful colonists. The Magazine report* a busy year, and its figures preach eloquently and surprisingly as to the need which still exists for rescue work such as Dr. Barnardo’s Homes have carried on for forty years. 2,091 Permanent admissions a year means an unthinkable 1 amount of child-suffering alone ! The general contents of "Night and Day” are informative and interesting, and the illustrations from photographs are illuminating. The Naval Branch has had a ship given to it. A new Branch Home has been opened at Clapham. Sir Gilbert Parker, M.P., and the Bishop of L ondon speak strenuously in favour of the work. The Bishop describes the characteristic of the' Homes as being "No red tape.” A volume of "Tales for the Hornets” (price ssi) has just been published.
