THE A.M.A. “TRUE BLUE” CARD.
SPACED FOR COLLECTING FIVE CENTS.
For each five cents collected, prick a hole with a pin in one of the squares below—each space representing that sum.
Letters from the “Children’s Missionary” will be sent to each collector upon returning the card with amount of collection—not less than Five Dollars.
Six of these cards will entitle the collector to a Life Membership in The American Missionary Association.
“GATHER UP THE FRAGMENTS, THAT NOTHING BE LOST.”
[Following this is a large
square containing one hundred small
squares, which are the ones to be pricked.]
Ralph read the card very distinctly and carefully, and then said,
“O Auntie, may I have one to prick.”
“Indeed you may,” answered Miss Hill. “I was just wishing for a young collector. When will you begin?”
“Oh, right off,” exclaimed Ralph, impulsively.
Then taking the card he approached Aunt Inez with a low bow and said, “Miss Hill, I called to see if you would not like to give me a small sum, five or ten cents for the poor negro.”
“You’ll do,” said Aunt Inez, smilingly, handing Ralph the ten cents, while he energetically pricked two very distinct holes in the blue card.
“There,” continued Ralph, “Now see if I don’t get a missionary letter for the next Sunday-school concert. Before the year is out, I’ll be a life member of the A.M.A.”
Is there any other boy or girl who would like to be a collector?
If so, please raise hands.
