fuse now life into the crew of tho Scotch
yaobt, who, naturally enough, havo been
rather crestfallen since their defeat by the
Yankee boys on tho Volunteer, and to give
them stouter hearts for their long sail across
the Atlantic. For tho past week they had
been preparing the cutter for her voyage.
She was stripped of her racing spars, all of
whioh will be shipped to England on the
Anchor Lino steamer FurnesHia. Tho racing
ails hove been stowed away between docks.
The Thistle's ocean spars aro in place and
ore very strong. Sho will not carry much
canvas. The mainboom lacks twclvo feet of
reaching tho taffrail, which shows it to bo
about twenty feet shorter than the racing
boom. The present tophamper looks like
' the rig of a New York lightor, but it is very
substantial and will stand a big blow. Tho
cutter's long, black hull looks as rakish as
ever, ami those on board contemplate with
joy ratner than dread their voyage.
The crew were up and about very early
this morning putting a few extra turns on the
ropes and making everything shipshape. At
8 0. SO Capt. Barr sang out the order to man tho
anchor capstan, and the clink, clink sound,
ou vory musical over tho water. The jib
was up in stops, tho cutter was

was clear of tho mud, theTTilf Vas broken

way. She moved through tho water very
gracefully. Tho foro stay.sail was then set,
and at 6. SO o'clock, when off Stapleton, the

her long sea voyage in earnest.

ertriiL coiiuebpondenci or tux kvenino world.
London, Oct. 8. There is no placo In the world
where so much Is given by the public to charitable
purposes as In 1mdon. Throughout the city there
aro many large hospitals which are dependent en
tirely upon voluntary contributions from the
public for their Biipport. The dovernracnt never
gives them anything. Bomo of these Institutions
arc so old that the property which they havo
acquired In their early period has so Increased In
valuo as to now give them comfortable Incomes.
Nearly every hospital has a particular day when It
makes special appeals to the public. Then they
have a Hospital Sunday In tho year, when all col
lections taken up In tho churches are for the
hospitals. The Saturday preceding Hospital Sun
day ladles throughout London take their places In
the streets to solicit alma for hospitals. Tho
women of the highest class take part In this publlo
begging. 1 saw elegantly dressed ladles upon tho
last Hospital Saturday, seated to the number of
one or two In a square, all through tho principal
streets of London. Any one who looked halt way
at them was sure to be aaked to contribute Upon
such days large sums are raised, owing to tho
energy of tho thousands of agents who combine
their labors. Then on the special hospital days
small societies make peraonal appeals for Individual
charities. Yesterday coming home from
Kew Hardens I met a great moving
host of people parading In tho Interests
of a noted west Kensington hospital. They
had bands of music and banners. Organized so
cieties carried banners upon which were printed
appeals to the public. The people turned out for
miles to witness the parade. Along the outskirts
of the procession were active agents of tho hos
pital, who carried boxes In which were placed the
contributions which they succeeded In getting
from the crowd. A dozen men carried long tin
tubes, 15 or 20 feet In length. With wide, flaring
mouths and solid bottoms. They would use these
tubes for reaching up to tho windows of the houses
for contributions. The children all along the line
seemed to think It waB the greatest possible fun to
shoot pennies Into these clinking tubes. These
collectors received something from nearly every
window. Tho tubes were also used for the pur
pose of soliciting from people upon the tops of
In all of the public places boxes are placed for
the hospital funds. The public are Invited by a
sign to put In a penny for the benefit of the hos
pitals. About every hospital thcro Is a box within
easy reach ot the public. If the hospital Is back
In an lnclosure the box hangs upon the outside
gate. Tho English people do contribute largo
amounts through theBC boxes. It Is different
with us. I am told by those who are experi
enced In hospital management In tho United Mates
that the boxes placed In public receive very little
notice from the publlo. There la In the station at
Washington, right aver the spot where Garfield
was shot, a box for the reception of contributions
to the hospitals named after him. Yet the amounts
received here during tho year aro so small as to
constitute nothing but a most trivial Item In tho
account of the receipts of this Institution.
One of the most striking and picturesque chari
ties in London is tho Foundling Hospital for tho
education and care ot the children o'f mothers who
have been betrayed or wronged. Ho child Is ac
cepted at this hospital who la not the offspring of a
first offense. Kach mother Is obliged to present
herself to tho Board personally and tell her story.
If the child Is the result of misfortune. It Is taken
Into the hospital, which stands ever after to the
child In the place of the parent. Tho mother sur
renders the child absolutely, but If she marries and
Is In a position of life where it would be for the
advantage of the child to be, restored to her It Is
surrendered. Hut the child has always the privi
lege of returning to the hospital, and In the event
of Its being Ill-treated or Improperly educated, the
hospital can require Its return. This hospital was
founded In 173d by Capt. Thomas Coram, an old
sea captain. He received the assistance ot Hogarth
and of Handel. Ills picture, painted br Hogarth,
Is one ot the most valued treasures of tho Institu
tion. The manuscript of Handel's oratorio of "The
Mesclah" Is also the property of this Insti
tution. Capt. Coram discovered the idea
of this most beautiful child's home in an
Incident In his own life. Ho found a deserted
baby In the street, and from that finding devel
oped the Idea of this home for deserted children.
"1 ne happy union of the warm-hearted philanthro
pist, Capt. Coram, the artistic genius of Hogarth
und the brilliant Inspiration of Handel formed tho
basis of this great charity. From humble begin
nings It has grown to become a powerful corpora
tion owning property In Its neighborhood which
to-day yields It a net Income of 18,000 a year. It
therefore makes no appeal to the public for aid.
It Is situated near the nrltlsh Museum, and Is
reached from Oxford street through Ked Lion
street. The buildings are quaint, roomy and most
.substantial. One ot the best examples of tho
worktof Benjamin West, "Christ Blessing Little
Children," two or three examples of Hogarth, the
most notable of which Is "The March to Finch
Icy," and a great cartoon byHaphael are among
the most notable of tho art treasures of this Insti
tution. But these things are ot secondary consideration
to the visitor who is all Interested In children. The
children themselves Bhow the splendid results of
this school of training and education. I have
never seen In any publlo charity such refined, delicate-looking
faces. There are soo boys and 800
girls In this Institution. They are taught to read
and write and are also taught the common
branches of English education and music. The
singing of these children attracts every Sunday a
large number of visitors to their church service.
In church the children are grouped to the right
and left of the lofty organ directly over tho rec
tor's head, the glrla upon the right, the boys upon
the left. The girls wear peculiar white muslin
caps. They are charity caps of the period when
tho Bchool was founded. They half encircle
the head and the conical crown rises
sharply. They are very becoming anil
arc worn even by the smallest. They wear
brown stuff dresses made with short sleeves.
White muslin kerchiefs are fastened about their
necks In Quaker fashion, and white aprons cover
the fronts of their dresses. Their arms are covered
with long black gloves. Just Inside the band at
the neck of the dress a little red line gives a touch
of color to this picturesque and dainty-looking cos
tume. The boys wear dark-blue uniforms pinked
with red, with snowy white broad collars. Small
boys, not largo enough to wear coats, appear In
kilts, with a red sash about their waists. Tho
scats of the children are In tlr,", as a chorus Is
seated In an oratorio concert. Tho smallest
midgets aro In front and the oldest, who are nearly
ready to go out Into the world, aro on the back
rowa. At the church service a week ago Sunday I
Baw little children not over three years old In this
front row. These little waifs looked rosy and
round and as carefully attended to as the children
of the most fond mother. Tho little ones were
spared the sermon and wero permitted to retire
after the communion service.
There is no more Interesting sight in London than
thli chllds' Home. It would be impossible to give
all of Its advantages In any mere newspaper artl.
clc. But the strong essential feature connected
with It, differing from any other like charity In the
world. Is that It stands back of Its children all of
their lives. Any child once accepted by this instl.
tutlon can always come back to It when In trouble
or distress. Tho children are always taught a
trade. If they hava any aptitude In a mechanical
dlroctton. If not, they aro given a training vihlch
will make them good domestlo servants. Their
training Is so good that they are sought after by
the best people throughout the United Kingdom.
These children are not permitted to carelessly go
from the institution. No family can havs one of
them In Its service without the consent and
approval of the Board of Control. The per.
"on employing one of the graduates of thl. ustltu.
Hon is required to make a report to the Institution
twice k year. The graduate la also required to
make a report concerning his or her employer,
and In case the agreement made with the Board
for proper care and treatment Is not carried out

child shall always have thovrhllege of coming

him to show them the way to Sliofer's Hotel,
which ho agreed to do. But before reaching
tho hotel, near tho Union depot, they took
hold of him violently and threatened to kill
him if he said a word. They carried him and
placed him in a caboose attached to a train of

"Weeping Joe," the Kvancellst.
Frum a Jiffertonilll (nd.) Bptetat.
"Weeping Joe" Is undoubtedly the most ex
travagant evangelist of all, If the Information re
ceded concerning him Is correct. He Is a Ken-,
tucklan, whose right namo la Joseph Hardy; Is
flno looking, of dark complexion, black mus
tache, and about thlrlj-flvo years old, He has
wandered all over tho States, and sprang Into no
tice here by preaching at Hlbernla, a little town
up the river, where he crested a great sensation.
Ills preaching Is rambling, full of funny stories,
jokes, and Interlarded with extravagant actions
and anything else to attract attention. He Is now
drawing unusually lurgo congregations at Hl
bernla, and Is creating much excitement among
both saints and sinners. There Is a division among
church people. Some think, him grand, while
others denounce him, aud a rupture la threatened.
The queer part of It is thut beseems to care noth
ing about remuneration, taking whatever Is
given him. Ho startled the congregation a few
days ago by breaking off In the middle of bis ser
mou by jumping from a window and returning by
the door, lo illustrate a point. He thinks any
thing Is right that will sate souls; that old-sl)lo

A joint snake (vpMtaurus ventrotts) was killed
near tho Institute a week or more ago. He waa
canned u sections aud deposited In the museum.
This Is the true joint snake that baa often beeit tho
subject of marvellous stories, such as that you
might take one joint miles away and beat It into a
jelly and that the head part would never rest till it
found all stray pieces ami rejoined them. The
above anake waa atxiut three feet lone (very large
of the kind), and when struck it broke Into about
a dozen pieces from a half to two Inches In length.
About afoot remained attached to the head. Tho
snake belongs to the lizard family, aud It la only
the long tall that exhibits such Irlttleuess. The
snake would undoubtedly live without the tall, and
would hardly go looking around for It.
