Miss Clara B. Comstock, who brought the New York children here to be distributed among thepeople of this section, has personally visited each home where the children were placed and is well pleased with the homes and re[orts the children thus far happy and contented. She made only one change, that of Arthur Clark, aged five, who now has a home with Mr. and Mrs. O.W. Stevenson in town. Little Arthur seems happy and contented.  She expects to return with children for parties who have applied for them, and may apply to the local committee. Thursday morning Donald Buckley, a lad about seventeen years old, arrived from New York and through Miss Comstock's influence, secured a place to work on the farm of Clarence Welsh.  Miss Comstock left town Thursday evening, very favorably impressed with our town, school, and people.
