- Women's Rights · Human Rights · Society

The South Otago Progress League has started a move­ment to raise £2000 for the es­tab­lish­ment of a women’s rest house in Bal­clutha. It is in­tended to pur­chase a sec­tion and build a suit­able place for women and chil­dren to visit, in­stead of hav­ing to wan­der about the

streets.

The rest house is for coun­try women when vis­it­ing the town. All mod­ern ac­ces­sories will be pro­vided, and an at­ten­dant en­gaged.

The farm­ing com­mu­nity was ap­pealed to by Messrs H. Sim­son and R.R. Grigor for funds last Fri­day, and col­lec­tors have been ap­pointed through­out the dis­trict.
