Tho bill providing for the appropriation
of money for the support of institutions
established to reclaim fallen women having
become a law, a GLOBE reporter was sent out
on a mission of investigation to see what he
might discover in connection with those in
stitutions which might lay claim to share in
the appropriation. As he had previously
visited the Christian Woman's Home and
opened it to the view of the outside world,
and as there was but one other institution in
the city which professes to deal with the
social evil, his undivided attention was
directed to that. It is true there is a sort of
hybrid disorganization which holds secret
conclaves discussing the savory subject, but
as it will hardly lay any claim for a moiety
of the appropriation, seeing it does noth
ing but talk, and that too wide of the mark,
it will be left to a more convenient time to
disclose its modus operandi of dealing with
To the House of the Good Shepherd then,
the reporter's attention was directed, and
when inquiry disclosed to him the fact that
this was no other than a nunnery, a chilly
feeling ciept down his vertebiel column, and
hlled him with tiepidation as imagination

tures. writhing victims and a cruel sister
hood, hard featured and as imphcable as
fate. Though possessing the courage of a
Custei and the enterprise of a Stanley, he
began to regret his fate, that he was on the
staff of a paper inexorable in its laws where
the gatheiing of news is concerned,
or that some other of his thou
sand and one colleague news gath
erers was not detailed for this paiticular
service. However there was no time for re
giets,and a GLOBE man knows not lebellion.
It was not therefore many minutes before he
stood before the associate bishop of the dis
trict with the strange request for a peimit
to make a thorough inspection of the prem
ises of the Good Shepherd's
WITHIN THE POET\LS.
The couiteous bishop at once conceded,
and fuither stated that he had no doubt
Father Shanley would be glad to do the hon
ors. "You will take the sisters at a disad-
vantage,*' said the bishop, ''not expecting
jou, but I doubt not they will be pleased to
show you their little flock of sheep and
lambs." Being somewhat reassured by the
presence of his guide, the newspaper man,
fat out for Wilkin stieet and soon appeared
befoie the dread establishment. Passing
along a well kept walk through the lawn to
the front entrance, the door was open
leading- into the hall and after ringing a bell
Father Shanley and the reporter entered, the
lattei's pulse rising a little nearer the nine
ties than usual. The hall is
a small apartment with three doors,
the one in front being giated,
giving it something of a prison-like appear
ance, but a glance aiound upon the texts
adorning the walls, indicated more the
dwelling place of mercy and peace than of
punishment and restraint. "I am the good
shepherd, and give my lite for my flock." ''I
came not to call the just, but sinners to re
pentance." "Blessed are they who dwell in
thy house 0 Lord they will sing thy praises
On the one side of the hall is a reception
loom and on the other tvo small reception
parlors. All are scrupulously clean and
tidy, neatly furnished and comfortable.
The one side of these parlors is sepa
rated from a passage way, or corridor, by a
giated screen. Heie is where the inmates
have communion with their friends. The
visitors had barely time to inspect these
rooms when a door leading into the screened
corridor opened and a handsome, stately
lady entered, diessed in the habit of the
order and with the badge of the Sacred

THE GLOBE reporter and explained
tho natuie of his visit
Mother Superioress, at
once expressed a cheerful readiness to show
the reporter over the whole establishment,
and the door leading from the hall into the
interior of the building was opened, and
the reporter found himself "within the murel
walls of a nunnery." A staircase led to
the second floor, at the head of which upon
the light was the "sisters' assembly room,"
neatly furnished and provided with a good
piano upon the other side of the landing
was the chapel. The leporter entered by
the chancel, which contained the staJls of
the sisters on each side, with that of the
Mother Superioress at one end. Over each
stall was a small scriptural picture. A cab
inet organ, and a life-sized painting of St.
Paul, by Wemard, completed the furniture
of the chancel, which was sepaiated from the
sanctury by a grated screen. Father Shanley
opened the gate in the screen and the re
poiter stepped into the sacred enclosure,
the mother superioress withdrawing, and
the father kneeling without the screen. The
sanctuary is calculated to awaken every feel
ing of awe and reverence to take the mind
away from grosser things in the contempla
tion of the beautiful and spiritual. A hand
some altar is surmounted by a fine oil paint
ing of the Good Shepperd. On the ends of
the altar are two large seraphim, with folded
wings and bowed in adoration.
On the one side is the shrine of the virgin
and on the other that of St. Joseph. The
sanctuary is separated from the part of the
chapel devoted to the inmates by a similar
screen to that dividing it from the chancel,
but instead of its being "A secret grate of
iron bars," the reporter found this as all
other gratings in the establishment only a
trail net work of wooden lattice, which
would require no great exertion to break
Leaving the chapel, the reporter was join
ed by Father Shanley, the Mother Superioress
and Sister Aloysius and again descended to
the first floor and entered the sisters' work
room, a comfortable apartment with sewing
machines, work tables, etc. On the same
floor is the Sisters' dining-room and the
sacristy. This completed the nunnery,
from which a covered way conducts to the
asylum. The first department entered here
was the spacious kitchen in which cooking
is done for over one hundred and thirty peo
ple. A more scrupulously clean apartment
than this it would be difficult to imagine
the floor and the tables are alike snowy
white and the culinary utensils are bright as
The manufactuing room on the same floor
was next visited, and immediately upon the
party passing the threshold all the occupants
of the room rose from their seats and re
mained standing till the visitors were seated.
There were same forty or fifty young women
here assembled, from the age of sixteen to
six and twenty. They were at the time en
gaged in making overalls for Aurbaeh, Finch
& Culberson. As it was the intention to re
turn again to this apartment a long stay was
npt made, but the visitors passed up stairs to
the infirmaryfew hospitals are so complete
ly arranged as this apartment. From it
a door communicated with the dormitory,
which contains forty-five beds, each one of
which nightly has its occupant. The room
was void of any impure or confined smell,
the painted floor was without a speck, the
coverlets were immaculately clean and show
ed a deftness of bed making rare in the
best disciplined domestic. Each inmate
has to make her own bed, and one is ap
pointed each morning to sweep and dust the
room. Down stairs again and another work
room is reached. In this room fine
needlework is done shirt-making,
embroidery and children's and
ladies' underclothing. Some work
was shown the reporter, which testified to
the skill of the practised fingers which
wrought it. The refectory is another cheer
ful room, in which the Magdalens take their
meals. Behind this is the Magdalen's chap
el, a recent addition to the establishment,
being erected in January last. To this chapei
the Magdalens, the penitents and the in
mates generally, have access at all hours. To
it thy can withdiaw at all times for pri
vate prayer and devotion.
The visitors having completed the in
spection of this apartment now proceeded
across the grounds to an isolated frame
building. This is the industrial school,
where fifty three children, from seven to
twenty years of age, are being educated and
trained in useful knowledge and industry.
There are two large class-rooms on the first
floor, communicating with folding doois. In
these rooms the children were assembled
when the visitors entered, and were engaged
in various kinds of needle work. As in
every other department, all rose and re
mained standing till the visitors were seated.
Every little child and young woman
was attired neatly, and were as
tidy and clean as if just
fresh from their toilet. Glancing over this
assemblage of the unfortunate, the afflicted
and the destitute, the reporter could not but
notice the expression of deep pleasure which
lit up each face and foi a moment flushed
the wan cheek of disease as the two Sisters
entered. Theie could be no mistaking the
fact that these two ladies had succeeded to
the highest degree in winning the hearts of
their charges, and the love light danced
ahke in the eye of the child and the woman
as they met the glances of their friends and
These poor waifs are some of them or
phans, and all might equally as well
be orphans as for all earthly good
their parents are or have been to them.
Some aie daughters of indifferent and even
abandoned women, some of dissolute, brutal
fathers all would have sunk down to the
lowest depths of degradation and sin, or to
a premature grave had not the merciful
hand of charity been extended to them and
dragged them up out of the filthy mire of
vice which their parents are wallowing.
One little child about seven years of age,
with large, sorrowful, mournful eyes, and
cheek as pallid as death brow and neck and
lips and hands waxen-hued as a corpse,
would elicit a painful interest in the most
callous. The poor, frad little
thing, the Bisteis said, was suffering
from consumption. Her mother was a very
poor woman, unable to attend to her suffer
ings, or administer to her wants, so the sisters
had taken her with the object of rendering
her last feeble, lingering momenta as com
fortable as they could.
At the request of Sister Aloysius Beveral
eagerly brought their work for THE GOLBE
man to see. It consisted of hand-stitching,
hemming, felling, and other plain sewing, with
embroideryguipuie satin stitch, and but
tonhole stitch, embroidery in silk, on cash
mere and flannel, and well nigh every other
kind of fancy needlework. The work was
not only well done, but kept remarkably
clean. To show that the fortunate little un
fortunates received other than mechanical
teaching, several of the children recited, and
well, too, played the piano and sang. The
sisters say the morning of each day is given
to study and the afternoon to work. The
motto, "No Place Like Home," on the wall,
indicated the spirit animating the breast ot
the estimable lady managers of this institu
Leaving the school rooms, the reporter
was shown up to the dormitones of the
children, which, like everything he had seen,
was clean and neat to a fault, the beds look
ing very inviting to the weary, with their
pink and white coverlets and snowy pillows.
In the basement of this building is the
laundry, and such a laundry! Washing days
are proverbially disagreeable, and perhaps
never before was a man content to remain
and to enjoy it, too, in the vicinity of the
disagreeable operation. But in this laundry
everything is so different from the idea gen
erally entertainedno damp floors, murky,
air, impregnated with suddy smells, heaps of
dirty linen. The ironing room displayed
strings and strings of children's clothing
and gentlemen's shirts, which would even
rouse the envy of a Chian Lung.
WITH THE INMATES.
Ketuming from the industrial school
the visitors again entered the manufacturing
department when, as before, every one rose
upon their entrance. Work was, in cour
tesy to the visitors, suspended, and Sister
Aloysius asked several of the women to sing
and play, the room being furnished with a
piano. While this was being done the re
porter bad an opportunity of scanning well
the countenances of the penitents and mag
dalens. The picture was a study, and one
calculated to arouse eveiy feeling of com
miseration. Theie were there features
which betrayed the ravages of vice, counten
ances showing the effects of remorse, faces
exhibiting resignation and acquired peace,
and all showed that contentment at least
was theirs. The sisters informed
the writer there were several present who
were sent to the assylum for punishment.
After spending npwaids of half an hour
with the Magdalens, the writer returned to
the reception parlors having seen every part
of the institution and its inmates. He saw
and heard sufficient to know that the House
of the Good Shepherd is one, if not the very
best managed institution in this city, and is
doing a noble but thankless taska task in
which it is hard to awaken the public sym
pathy. These women, it is thought rush
headlong into sin, and if in their
recklessness they bring upon themselves
punishment in disease and shattered consti
tution they have themselves to thank. But
there is a wrong impression of which the
popular mind should be disabused. It is,
that undue restraint is used and liberty is
forbidden the unfortunate creatures who
find here an asylum from destitution and
misery. Never was a greater mistake. The
most potent force used is that of affection
and sympathy, and any one will not be sur
prised at the extraordinary power that Sisters
Bernard and Aloysius have over their charges,
after they have themselves conversed some
minutes with these estimable ladies. Some
of their patients, when sent by the city au
thorities, display a spirit of rebellion so
strongly, it requires sometimes the efforts of
more than one man, by main force to get
them within the building, but within a day
or two they became tractable and manag
able and it generally ends with a desire to
remain. The Sisters are often annoyed
greatly by disreputable people trying to in
fluence the inmates to leave and return to
their shameful life.
The Sisters say the method pursued is,
that when a patient enters no allusion is
made in any way to her past lifethe past
is completely buried and a new life com
mences. Everything is done to keep the
mind from dwelling upon the reckless life
which led to suffering, but every effort is
made to lead to a hopeful future.
It is a rule for the Sisters never to divulge
^l^VSS" V^pwy- -s|B(^r -jg^j
tho past Uvea of the inmates to other in
mates or to those outside, and the writer is
restrained from telling the history of any
child of am whom he saw at this most ex
cellent of asylums for the sinning and sinned
against. Before dismissing the subject it
should be stated that the House of the Good
Shepherd, for the great public and humani
tizing, to say nothing of Christian work it is
doing, is deserving of every public confi
dence and public aid to strengthen the hands
of the devoted hearts who have sacrificed
themselves to the holy' work of saving the
outcast and helpless, the frail and sinning
sisterhood from the horrible consequences of
misfortunes, the despairing sequence of sin.
And the cry is still they come.

RESCUINGAWIDOW SNATCHED AS A BRAND FROM
The Pitiful Tale of a Young-FemaleDr.
Boy and Rev. McKlbben to the Bescue
A "Globe" Missionary on the TrailHe
Visits the Home Nest of Kate Hutton
And finds the Widow Did Not Fall a Great
WaysRumors Less Romantic When
A reporter of HE GLOBE incidentally heard
yesterday that a young, beautiful and inno
cent widow had been driven by dire necessity
to seek the shelter of Kate Hntton's bagnio,
there to commence the downward path to
ruin, disgrace and degradation. When the
intelligence reached the reporter's attention
it was clothed in all the roseate hues of ro
mance. The widow had, so rumor said, been
discovered by Dr. Roy, when in professional
attendance upon one of the women of the
establishment named. The widow's evident
artlessness had struck the professional gentle
man, as being entirely out of place in the
palace of sin. Knmor further stated that the
widow had called upon him for medical treat
ment, and that he had then elicited from her
a tale of heart-rending woe, to the effect that,
although only 17 years of age, she was a
widow, having been married last June, and
her husband had died within three months
of the ceremony. Her parents' family, so it
was represented, was steeped in poverty, and
consisted of eighteen months to feed, so that
avenue of support was barred to her. Stray
ing to St. Paul, she had ineffectually
endeavored to procure an honest
living, and at length, and with her
eyes wide open to the consequences,
she had deliberately sought out and entered
the bagnio. Touched to the quick by this
mournful narrative, the charitable doctor
called upon Bev. Wm. McKibben, before
whom he laid the case, and through this
gentleman's instrumentality the woman was
placed at once in the Magdalen Home.
Here then, thought the reporter, is rich
ness indeed, and he immediately set forth on
his round of inquiry after the involved ''true
inwardness And here the reporter men
tally thanked Kev. Henry Ward Beecher for
the convenience of that phrase.
Manifestly, the first person to gee and
interview was Kate Hutton. As he stretched
forth his hand with virtuous trepidation to
ring the door-bell of her house, the jingle of
a piano manipulated with unskilled fingers
was the only approach to the ''sounds of
revelry by night" which greeted the report

ed by a tolerably fair specimen of female
frailty, who was modestly and plainly
ReporterCan I see Miss Hutton for a

not see her.
R.I will only detain her a moment tell
her I want to see her.
F. F.She's in bed.
That was a poser, so the reporter plainly
stated his mission, which had the affect of
inducing the doorkeeper to throw open the
portal and permit the man of pencils to step
inside the hallway, the door to the first
room, whence the sounds proceeded from
the rasped piano, being banged to at the

F. F.Well, I don't know much about

R.When did she come?

R.Did you ever see her?
F. F.Yes, I was lying on the lounge

R.Did she say she was driven to come
here by starvation?
F. F. with all the contempt she could
throw into the monosyllableNo!
R.What did she say
F. F.Well, she wanted Miss Kate to take
her in as a boarder. Miss Kate asked her if
she had ever been in a sporting house before,
and she said "Yes." Why, she has been in
the lowest places in the city.
F. F.Yes, and that was the reason Miss
Kate sent her away.
R.Is the widow young i
F. F.Yes, she looks as if she might be
young. I didn't see much of her.
Ths reporter here backed out, and was
soon breathing God's free air in search of
Dr. Roy, but that individual could not be
found in his office, or any where else, so his
chance for immortality in this article was
Rev. Wm. McKibben was the next object
of search by HE GLOBE missionary, and the
ensuing tramp was nearly equal to Stanley's
through Africa's sunny jungles. The door
bell of his residence was answered by a
hired girl of apparent foreign extraction.
ReporterIs Mr. McKibben in?
Hired girl, taking a pin from her the bos

door in the reporter's face, and permitted
him some minutes to view and study the
beauties of nature on East Tenth street.
Hired girl, taking to the pin againWell,
he'll be home to supper about half-past six.
A second visit to the house was so aT suc
cessful as to lead the reporter to understand
Mr. McKibben might be found at the rooms
of the Young Men's Christian Association,
whither he hastened. Entering the room,
the missionary from HE GLOBE discovered
a number of gentlemen and about an equal
number of empty chairs, upon each of the
latter being a bible, or what, to the benight
ed vision of the reporter, appeared such.
Mr. McKibben sat immediately next the
door, and was immediately informed of the
business of the man of news.
Mr. McKibben, answering the reporter
like the courteous gentleman he isI know
nothing about the facts of the case, further
than Dr. Roy told me where the woman was.
I never saw her, but I told some of the la
dies of the Magdalen home, who took her in

to communicate about the matter?
Mr. McK.No. There is one point, how
ever, you may make, if you wish. You can
say that I and those who are associated with
me in this task of reclamation do not wish
to drive these poor women into the streets.
Oar institution is ready to receive them with
open arms. All we desire is their temporal
and spiritual reform and welfare.
R.I will cheerfully do so. Thank you.
Good night, sir.
And thus, from the bagnio to the pulpit,
HE GLOBE missionary ended his inquiries.
Hunting Ice In the Torrid Zone.
Some ten days or more ago, an agent of a
St. Louis ice company came to this city with
instructions to engage the requisite aid to
secure as much ice as possible, to be shipped
at intervals to St. Louis. Not finding it
possible to do anything in this line here
abouts, he went to White Bear and there
the warm, mild weather again frustrating
his pnrposes, he took the train for Duluth,
where he was still doomed to disappoint
ment. Determined not to be foiled, he yes
terday morning chartered a tag and started
for Prince Arthur's Landing, 200 miles
down the north shore, where there was re
ported to be then about four miles of ice in
Thunder bay. Whether the mild weather
i has again defeated him remains to be seen.

The steamer Victory, which left St. Louis
on Saturday for Reeds Landing, turned back

Capt. J. H. Reaney visited Stillwater
yesterday, with the view to making arrange

The boat, however, had not arrived from
La Crosse, but was momentarily expected.
Yesterday morning the early freight on
the St. Paul & Sioux City railroad, carried
a determined would-be suicide from Hamil
ton, a station 15 miles from this city, on the
way to the asylum for the insane at St.
Peter. The man, a middle-aged Swede,
first attempted self-destruction by drowning,
but was unsuccessful, owing te the shalow
ness of the creek into which he plunged.
He next carved his throat with an old butch
er knife, and was again unsuccessful. His
wounds dressed, he was secured, his demon
strations being so violent on the night of
