Rev. Mr. Toles and His Little Wanderers
The first public appearance of Rev. Mr. Toles and his "Little Wanderers" in this city was in the Burlington Mission School which meets every Sunday morning in the vestry of the congregational church. Mr. Toles made an interesting statement of the work of the institution he represents is doing, and several beautiful pieces were sung by his choir of children. At the close a collection was taken up for the "Home" amounting to $10.00, which was very liberal considering the circumstances.
