IN GENERAL. Managers of charitable institutions are cau

tioned against professional charity "promoters;" and all persons are advised not to buy tickets for entertainments of which they know little or nothing, especially when offered by persons of whom they know less. It is not stated or implied that all such “promoters are frauds, but only that the methods adopted may lend themselves to fraudulent use, so that it is well to inquire of this society before employing them or purchasing tickets for entertainments goiten up by them.
