Facts about the Orphan Fund. The objects of the fund are: (1) To provide weekly allowances from 3s. to 7s. per week according to the number of children in families of deceased members, until the youngest arrives at the age of fourteen, and, (2) To specially care for such children as have neither father nor mother, by purchasing them into homes for orphan children, or otherwise insuring that they are cared for. Although several families by the death of the father have been bereft of both parents, it has not been required to act upon the letter of these objects as the children have been adopted and cared for by those who were friends or fellow-workmen of the father during his lifetime. The Orphan Fund relies for its income on two sources. (1) On the regular payments made to it by each member of the Society, and (2) on the subscriptions and donations of the benevolent public. The first of these sources of income, although a reliable one, is inadequate to meet the liabilities already incurred ; and as these must necessarily increase year by year, the help and assistant of the benevolent public is therefore earnestly invited, with a view of supplementing the regular subscriptions of the members, and so enabling them to carry out the obligations they have undertaken. The Fund is managed free of cost beyond the mere necessary items of printing and postage. Periodical visits are made by the Society's Officers to the homes of the children, with a view to ascertaining that the amount allowed weekly is applied for the children's benefit, and that they are being properly schooled, clothed and cared for. Weekly payments have been made to 2,731 families, comprising 7,126 children, at a cost of $159,301 0s 2d., and we have at the present time 1,872 children on the Fund, at a cost of £188 9s 0d. per week, or £9,719 14s. 9d. per annum, and I am sorry to say our roll increases yearly.

The latest and most improved method of curing the Blind & Deaf. No operations necessary. The rush and push of modern life put a great strain on certain organs, more especially the senses of Seeing and Hearing. The roar of machinery, once of no account, is enough, in many works, to drive one distracted. The nerves suffer, and other complications follow. The speed of the electric and motor cars in our streets drives numerous persons to distraction. Accident, too, now frequently happen, and both Eyes and Ears suffer. This is not reckoning the large number either born with Impaired Vision or suffering from Deafness, left as a legacy from some past disease or workshop noises. These facts, therefore, prove the absolute necessity of the existence of a Specialist who has devoted his attention to the study of the best methods of curing diseases of the eye and ear. It stands to reason that one who, like Mr. Thomas Ison of Ison's Eye and Ear Dispensary, Leeds, has devoted the past thirty years in studying the best methods of curing these diseases may justly call himself an Expert in these matters. Thirty years is a long time to devote to one particular department of treating disease. Now Mr. Ison has conclusively proved that he makes no vain pretensions. He has cured hundreds of patients ; he still continues to cure those who place themselves under his skilful treatment. There are many good and noble men in the medical profession, but few devote themselves exclusively to studying the complex nature of diseases of the eye and ear. Still fewer can say that they have devoted the major portion of their lifetime in curing hundreds of complicated cases by original, yet simple means. No business or professional man suffering from either eye or ear troubles need give up his business to go in for a course of treatment, neither need the workman or workwoman give up a single day's labour in order to avail themselves of the Ison method of treatment. The cure is safe, permanent, and effective, and entirely without operation. No pain, no useless mechanical contrivances, no uncertainty, are the prominent features of the Ison Method. Eye and Ear Diseases. No one can better undertake to cure these than one who knows that every step he takes is a step towards recovery. This, too, not on the unsupported word of Mr. Ison alone, but he can, and does, produce ample testimony from living witnesses of the marvellous cures he has done in the past, and is still performing. Hundreds of grateful patients testify to the efficacy of the Ison Method of treatment. This, in great measure, is sufficient to justify Mr. Ison in urging all sufferers to place themselves in his hands, with every assurance that they will be skilfully, honourably, and reasonably dealt with. Those who do not find it convenient to attend the Dispensary at Leeds can be treated successfully by correspondence. Sufferers should write for particulars of the Ison Method of Treatment and printed Form of Questions to be answered, which, together with up-to-date testimonials, are forwarded free. One of the most remarkable cases Mr. Ison ever had under his care was that of Mr. Thomas J. Law, a well-known resident of Sheffield. He had been deaf for twenty years, was advised to undergo a serious operation, which would have endangered his life, and yet was permanently cured by Mr. Ison's system of treatment in six weeks without operation. Let Mr. Kaw speak for himself. He writes: "42, Middlewood Road, Hillsboro', Sheffield. Dear Sir – I am very pleased to be able to tell you that I have quite recovered my hearing in right ear, also discharge ceased after six weeks' treatment. Please excuse my not writing before as I have been waiting to verify facts which seemed almost impossible in my case of twenty years' standing – Yours truly, Thos. J. Law." Other cases pronounced incurable, yet under the Ison Method without operation have received their eyesight. Mr. George H. Fearn, a well-known gentleman, of 42, Armitage Road, Birkby, Huddersfield, writes to Mr. Ison: "Before visiting you I was almost totally blind. Since going under your treatment I have so far recovered as to be able to see to read with the aid of glasses. I may say that I was six months under an eye specialist, and also ten weeks in an eye hospital. At the end of that time they said they had done all they could for me. They gave me no hope of ever being able to see again." Intending patients would be well advised to pay him a personal visit if possible, and he will then be able to give the requisite advice and counsel as to future treatment. Mr. Ison has, for upwards of twenty years, made periodical visits to some of the most important cities and towns in Yorkshire, Lancashire, etc. Sufferers should write for particulars of the Ison Method of Treatment, which, together with a printed form of questions to be answered is forwarded free. Mr. Thomas Ison, Oculist and Aurist, personally attends in his private consulting rooms at same Hotels as for last twenty years, at York, Scarborough, Hull, Sheffield, Doncaster, Bradford, Huddersfield, Harrogate, etc. See Leeds and Local Papers. Attendance at Leeds: Every Tuesday (Hours 10 to 7); also Alternate Saturdays, October 21, November 4, 18, December 2, 16, 30 (Hours 10 to 7). Consultations Free. Artificial Eyes, 15s. Spectacles, 3s. to 10s. All letters to be addressed to Ison's Eye & Ear Dispensary, Ltd., 71 Great George Street (Opposite Infirmary), Leeds. On account of the extreme length of the programme the audience are requested not to unduly insist upon encores. Words. Programme of Organ Recital from 7 to 7.30. by Mr. Hubert Lunn, A.R.C.O. 1. – Sonata in D Minor- Merkel, 2. – Larghetto in D – Mozart. 3. – Canzonetta – Nicode. 4. – Postlude – Faulkes. Part I. Duet for Violin and Pianoforte "Mazur russe" – Mlynarski. Miss Gertrude Watson and Mr. Wallis Vincent. Song "Heavenly Aida" – G. Verdi. Mr. Kemp-Cartwright. Recit. What if ‘tis I am chosen, and my dream be now accomplished! Of a glorious array, I the chosen leader ; Mine glorious victory by Memphis received in triumph! To thee returned, Aida, my brow entwined with laurel, tell thee for thee I battled, for thee I conquer'd. Air. Heavenly Aida! Beauty resplendent! Radiant flower, blooming and bright ; queenly thou reignest o'er me resplendent, bathing my spirit in glorious light. Would that thy bright eyes once more beholding, breathing the soft airs of thine own land; round thy fair brow a diadem folding, thine were a throne next the sun to stand.

Mr. Kemp-Cartwright. Here a sheer old hulk lies poor Tom Bowling, the darling of our crew; no more he'll hear the tempest howling, for death has broached him too. His form was of the manliest beauty, his heart was kind and true; faithful below, Tom did his duty, and now he's gone aloft. Tom never from his word departed – his virtues were so rare ; his friends were many, and true-hearted, his Poll was kind and fair. And then he'd sing so blithe and jolly, Ah! Many's the time and oft; but mirth is turned to melancholy, for Tom is gone aloft. Yet shall poor Tom find pleasant weather, when He, Who all commands, shall give, to call life's crew together, the word to pipe all hands. This death, who kings and tars despatches in vain Tom's life has doffed; for though his body's under hatches his soul is gone aloft. Pianoforte Solo – Waltz in E flat – N. Rubinstein – Miss Mildred Langley. Violoncello Solo "Am Springbrunnen" – Davidoff. Miss Adelina Leon.

The minstrel boy to the war is gone, in the ranks of death you'll find him; his father's sword he has girded on, and his wild harp slung behind him. "Land of Song!" said the warrior bard, Tho' all the world betrays thee, one sword at least thy right shall guard, one faithful harp shall praise thee. The minstrel fell! But the foeman's chain could not bring his proud soul under; the harp he lov'd ne'er spoke again, for he tore its cords asunder! And said, "No chains shall sully thee, thou soul of love and bravery! Thy songs were made for the pure and free, they shall never sound in slavery." Thomas Moore. Violin Solo "Serenade Badine" – Gabriel-Marie. Miss Gertrude Watson.

Vocal Duet – "The Day is Done" – Lohr. Miss Florence Walker and Mr. Kemp-Cartwright. The day is done, and the darkness falls from the wings of night, as a feather is wafted downward from an eagle in his flight. Come, read to me some poem, some simple and heartfelt lay, that shall soothe this restless feeling and banish the thoughts of day. Such songs have power to quiet the restless pulse of care, and come like the benediction that follows after prayer. Then read from the treasured volume the poem of thy choice, and lend to the rhyme of the poet the beauty of thy voice. And the night shall be filled with music, and the songs that infest the day shall fold their tents like the Arabs, and as silently steal away. Longfellow. Archibald Ramsden, Ltd. 12, Park Row, Leeds. See the wonderful J. & P. Schiedmayer Pianos. "The Instruments that Sing." Madame Clara Butt says: "I recommend every singer to have a Schiedmayer, it is such a help to the voice." Sir Edward Elgar gives his testimony in the emphatic statement; "The tone of the instrument is superb ; it gives me the greatest pleasure to play on it." These great and famous artists have Schiedmayer Pianos themselves, and write thus after association with them in their own rooms. They are not merely testimonials from the concert platform. Be sure and see they are J. & P. Schiedmayer Pianos. There are Pianofortes with similar names, but they are not the genuine Schiedmayer instruments unless bearing the Trade Mark as follows on the Iron frame: Schiedmayer, J & P. S.
