Well-Behaved Boys at Eddyville

In Eddyville last Friday we were surprised to see a troupe of well-dressed, well-behaved Boys, ranging in age from 10-17, come marching from the depot under the care of some individual from New York, and upon inquiry learned that they were from the Children's Aid Society of New York, and were brought here in search of homes. Quite a number of the citizens of Eddyville and vicinity adopted these poor children, and probably by this time, all have been taken. A group of girls was expected in a few days.
