public institutions, some private foundations, others sustained in part by the federal, State, or city governments, in part by private endowments and contributions. Some are for the whole State, and others for Boston alone, but all are more or less for the benefit of its poor, and largely sustained by its liberality. Some again are penal and reformatory as well as charitable, unless the last term may be construed to embrace them all. The first general division is into out-door and in-door relief. The in-door relief emraces : Hospitals, Homes and Asylums. The out-door enumerates the societies for alms-giving, for furnishing employment, and those embracing religious instruction as well as pecuniary assistance, where this last is considerable. Both follow the arrangement in the almanac of 1871, sent herewith, and to which reference is made.

IIOUT-DOOR CHARITIES.
