MOTHER AND TOTS ENTER COUNTY HOME

Less than five years ago John HARTZELL, a Sumneytown resident, led one of
the village's young women to the altar as his bride, with every promise of
loving and caring for her as only a devoted husband should. Last week, the bride
of five years, and now the mother of three small children, deserted by
husband, bereft of parents or friends, heartbroken and penniless, entered the County
Home with her infants by her side. To her charity is the only solace, the
only hope in her hour of illness and need. To the three little ones the bounty
of the county is the only shield against starvation, and within the home they
must remain until they can look after themselves, unless some outsider will
take pity on them and their mother.
