Rev. R.G. Toles, of "Baldwin Place, Home for Little Wanderers."

Rev. R. G. Toles, superintendent of the "Baldwin Place, Home for Little Wanderers", Boston, Mass., occupied the pulpit of the fourth Street Baptist Church on Sabbath morning, and delivered an eloquent appeal in behalf of this philanthropic institution. A choir of six girls sang some choice pieces of sacred music in a very creditable style. The appearance of the party of "little wanderers" now in the city is most attractive and they have mad many friends during their short stay. Mr. Toles missions promises to be successful in this section. At the close of the services a collection was taken up for the benefit of the "Home" and many of the church members took some of the children home with then for dinner. Mr. Toles leaves town today.
