Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...of the Woman's Boards from such sources for the past year have been only about $224,000, or $76,000 short of what they are entitled to receive. Legacies Legacies are becoming less and less a dependable quantity. The actual cash receipts from estates were only $65,465.28, the smallest sum for many years.
