New Orleans (La.) Item

Noticing in the Item of Saturday [June 22] the stories of suffering in the direction of Barataria by victims of the Hymelia overflow, the Christian Science publication committee for Louisiana has delivered to the Item checks to the amount of $315.85 for use in immediate relief of stricken people. The checks received were from banks of the following cities: Canajoharie, N. Y.; Malone, N. Y.; Peekskill, N. Y.; Johnstown, N. Y.; Montgomery, Ala.; Newark, N. J.; Geneva, N. Y.; Lowville, N. Y.; Fort Edward, N. Y.

The Item diverted $110 of the above amount on Monday to the purchase of two thousand sacks for the people of Gretna, who are now fighting the water lapping over the back levees of their thickly settled community.
