The present winter has been a trying one on some impoverished families of Warrensburgh. John J. Archer, Poormaster, has been helping about a dozen families to get through and he reports several sad cases of destitution, two in particular, and both living on the outskirts of town where they have been literally snowbound and were found by the Poormaster in a condition of dire need, incapable of self-support on account of sickness.
John Archer has done what he could, and for the present the pitiable creatures are looked after with humane care. In this undertaking he has received warm-hearted support from the citizens who have contributed liberally to these suffering souls, brought low through force of circumstances over which they have no control. It is gratifying to live in a Christian community like Warrensburgh.
