Through the kindness of A. L. Kavanagh, esq., the children from the Healy Asylum were given an outing at Fish Hatchery Hill Thursday afternoon. They were supplied with baseballs and bats, a football, watermelons and bananas. The broad-tufted plateau encircled with pines furnished an ideal playground.
