A. number of ladies connected with the various places of worship are taking a kindly interest in the enterprise, and will lend their add at the stalls during the week The Mission, which is a far-reaching one, owes its existence to the late Earl of Shaftsbury, K.G., and Mr John A. Groom, and seeks to encourage help and guide the numerous classes of girls who seek their livelihood by selling flowers in the street of our large towns. It has an Orphanage at Clac ton-on S ea, and seaside and holiday home for Blind and Crip- pled girls. The orphans are trained for domestic service, and the Crippled and Blind girls arei taught the .beautiful art of flower- making.
