Successful Canvassing

Mr. John Connor, deputy collector for Allen’s Grove, obtained on Monday afternoon and Tuesday of last week, the sum of $38.50 for the Relief Association of the county, in about one-fourth part of the township. Mr. Connor obtained besides large quantities of pillows, sheets, shirts, bandages and lint. Everybody, he says, seemed willing to give, and only regretted their inability to give more.
