WORK OF THE ISLAND MISSION— A BMND
GIRL'S CHOICE OF BOOKS.
Probably no money spent by the Island Mission
during the last year has given more pleasure than
the few dollars expended upon "Evangellne,"
Tennyson's "Princess" and selections from Long
fellow's poems, all In raised characters, for a young
blind girl in the epileptic ward of the City Hos
pital on Blackwell's Island. The girl is intelligent
and able to read with her fingers, but before these
stories were given her Bhe had only one book Id
raised characters, and In the Intervals of the at
tacks to which she Is subject spent long hours
sitting drearily In the dark. The books were her
None of the people in the epileptic ward are
capable of continuous effort, but they are, much
of the time, as well as any one. The island mission
has contributed toward the support of a teacher
for these unfortunate people.
The Special Diet Fund given by this mission
has been the means of helping- back to strength
many who have been sick In the City Hospital.
According to the report of the superintendent of
the New- York City Training School for Nurses, at
least three patients during the year must have died
without the delicate nourishment thus afforded.
Many ar.d varied are the benevolencles of this
society. The toddlers and feeble-minded children
of Randall's Island have been cheered by cages of
singing birds, which have been placed in the wards;
spectacles, yarn and knitting have been provided
for the aged of various Institutions- nelp has been
afforded in fitting out a diet kitchen In connection
with the CKy Hospital; small sums of money and
warm cardigan Jackets have been given to desti
tute male patients on leaving the island and a
course of medical lectures to the nurses by physi
cians of the visiting staff of the City Hospital has
been paid for by a special committee. Baby car
riages go-carts, baseballs, bats and croquet sets
have been provided for children who are Inmates
of the asylums and hospitals
The Island Mission was founded in 18SS. for the
purpose of i Ch erl the poor and sick in public

SOME WAYS OF COOKIXG EGGS.
Separate the white and yolk of a fresh egg. Beat
the white stiff, form it into a nest and place In a
thin, wide topped cup. Make a shallow hollow In
the centre of the nest and put into It the unbroken
yolk. Set the cup In a pan of boiling water: cover
and cook for three minutes. Remove carefully
from the cup to a hot plate, and season with but
ter pepper and «alt. This makes not only an at
tractive and palatable dish for an invalid, but Is
more digestible than when cooked in the shell or
whpn the wnite la unbeaten. Eggs cooked in this
manner and sprinkled with choppod parsley make
an attractive breakfast dish
To poach an- egg for garnishinjr purposes, put
one tablespoonful of vinegar and two teaspoonfala
cf salt into a pint of water. When the mixture is
boiling-. drop Into the point of greatest ebullition an
unbeaten egg. Let it boil hard for one minute, or
until it has rolled Itself up. Then remove to the
sld« of the range where it will not boll and allow
It to cook for five minutes.
An egg dropped in this way into plain boiling
water will be dissipated in the water. But tae salt
ana vfnfgar rnif=<= rhe temperature to co hich a de
gree that the albumen of the egg is At once
coagulated and the action of the bo Fling water rolls
the white about the yolk. The white of e"g«
cooked In this manner is leather> .
To poach an egg for breakfast or luncheon, break
a fresh en carefully and drop it into a buttere-i
egg poacher. Place the poacher in hot not boil-
Ing, water and cook until the white is set. Remove
to a buttered slice of toast and season with butter
pepper and salt.
TO STIFF EGGS.
Boil the number of eggs required for fifteen
minutes. Remove the shells, cut In two crosswise
and take off a thin slice from each end. so that
they will stand. Remove the yolks and rub them
to a cream. Season with butter, pepper, salt and
chopped chowchow to taste. Put the mixture into
the white, allowing it to be heaped slightly. Stand
the haJves on a platter and pour around them ■
mushroom sauce made as fellows:
Melt one tablespoonful of butter in the saucepan.
and when it bubbles add to it one tablespoonful
of flour. Cook these for three minutes without
browning, stirring with the bottom of th<- spoon
constantly. Add one-half cup of hot water and
cook and stir until smooth. Then put into the
mixture a can of chopped mushrooms with the
liquor and ccok for rifteen minutes. Season with
salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste. . Pour the
sauce around, not over, the eggs, and serve cold.

NONSENSE NOW AND THEN" IS AS GOOB
FOR A CHII.P AS FOR A MAN.
At the regular meeting of the Women's Confer
ence of the Society of Ethical Culture, held yester
day afternoon at the headquarters. Madlson-ave.
and Fifty-r.lnth-st.. William M. Salter. the leader
of the Chicago branch of that society, spoke on
"Children's Questions and How to Answer Them."
He was presented to the audience by Mrs. Luis
Sollgsberg. president pro tern., after th» regular
club business had been transacted. Mr. Salter
stated In part:
A child's desire to question means for itself In
tellectual development, for the best instruction we
receive through life is the return for some want
expressed, something craved for and sought after.
When a child asks some question in seeking for
knowledge which requires a little care and thought
on our own part to answer correctly, It Is often
est replied to by "Don't bother me; that'H a good
child. " which moans what is most convenient and
comfortable to ourselves. To question Is the natu
ral effort of the soul to advance, for those who
stupidly aceppt things as they are are no better
than the animals. The curious, restless. Inquiring
spirit is that which mak»s the intellectual man.
When the little one reaches out for what he does
not understand, every mother or every person who
enters Into responsive relations with the child
should be the teacher, and show respect to every
question the child asks. For a child with ener
gies and demands of its own is likely to be a fresh
force in the world. Give only true answers, or as
nearly true as possible, and do not think that any
thing will do.
I believe in fairy tales; they represent the fanci
ful side of iife, and a little nonsense Is as good
for a child as for older people. But let the tales
be told as tales.
What might be called troublesome questions can
tw» divided Into three classes — those relating to
nature, to morals and to God. In nature, the moon
and sunlight are the earliest objects to Interest
the child, and there, are for questions concerning
these many picturesque answers handed down as
legendary lore. I should nay that the sun was
ilke ,1 ball of fire, and like a live coal, only hot
ter and further away The moon is not hot, like
the sun. but a reflection, and once a part of the
earth, that was thrown off like mud from a flying
ball. The earth moving Is like a smoothly rolling
train of cars, by which the trees seem to move,
when really it is ourselves. If you are rusty on
these topics, study up a little on nebular hypothe
sis. The scientific Is being written for the un

Many of the remarkable religious or theological
questions which are frequently heard "out of the
mouths of babes" would not arise If they had not
been put into thetr heads. They are not honest
child questions. The notions of God as a giant and
th» departing soul as travelling on Us wings or
angel's wings, may have their picturesque side,
but as they are Impossibilities they should be
treated as fairy tales.
Mr. Salter. in conclusion, gave an Illustration In
a conversation between two boys.
First Boy— S»o how the grass grows.
Second Boy— Yes. but what makes it grow?
First Boy— Why. God. of course.
Second Boy— No. He doesn't; Its the fertilizer.

lead them to knowledge and a discriminating

HOW THE T. S. 8. ORIGINATED.
The Tribune Bunshlne Society has prown from
small beginnings until It is now an HMsdattoa
reaching out all over the t'ni'ej Btatea, and even
beyond its boundaries. The purpose of 'he s-ociety
is not new nor are its methods original. There
have been for years similar a3so -iatl his in this
and other countries doing precisely the saaas kind
of laudable work, out the growth >f The Tribune
Sunshine Society ha." surpassed all othvr*. chiefly
because of the kindly and charitable deposition of
the readers of this newspaper. Th- Tribune Sun
shine Society practically taniiliHH '1 Itself. It
began with a reference on this pagr- to "a hand Df
invalids and their friends" in Novvm .-r. !«%. and
these were spoken of as a "Shut-In Socie-y." The
next stage was reached on December 3, lS9t>, when
the following announcement appeared in The Trib
The Tribune Bhut-In Club is becoming so large
that the Only Woman's Page will hereafter devote
special time and space to its interests. . . .
Every person who sends in an idea for the Shut-In
Club Immediately becomes an honorary member.
. . . Every shut-in is Invited to send In her
"Christmas ideas" for the benefit of ncr fellow
That was supplemented on January 13. 1897. by
The Tribune Shut-in Society will hereafter be
known by the rame of "The Tribune Sunshine So
ciety" This change is made because of conflict
with a shut-In society organized In 1884. the head
quarters of which Is at No. 3T. We»t Thirtleth-st..
New-York City. . Chlnging the word Shut-In to
Sunshine doe 9 not interfere with tne club motto
A STEP FORWARD.
On February 22. 1900. the continued development
ot the society was noted n these words:
The great success of the Tribune Sunshine Bociety
has naturally outrun th.- modest arrangements
made at the out.-et for Its conduct. It was founded
in The Tribune office, under Tribune authority, by
Tribune employes, as a part of their office work,
and The Tribune freely used Its otamns In com
mending the beneficent plan and the time of its
employes in extending it.
Thus started and fostered, it has spread In a way
that brings at once gratification and concern. This
Journal has stood steadily behind it. and has thus
made Itself legally and morally responsible to many
thousands of re-i lers for th.- apn^als It has pre
sented to th.-m and the response* It has received.
Multitudes of Sunshine packages and no Inconsider
able sums of Sunshine money have been constantly
, sent to this aAce. The regular counsel of The
'Tribune advised that tinder such circumstance a both
tne contributors and this journal should be pro
tected by a legal organization and a treasurer under
Its supervision, otherwise it would be trifling with
the legal and moral responsibilities it assumed. An
incorporation was accordingly effected from among
members in its ofilce with time and aptitude for
the business details.
The object of the soi U ty Is to distribute In homes
a!l over the United States as much "sunshine" as
possible, particular attention being paid to "shut
ins" — people who are unable to any great extent
to enjoy the freedom of outdoor lif--. Throus the
Tribune Sunshine Society the members will receive
the many advantages arising from unity, fellowship
and co-cperation with those situatt-U under similar
circumstai as themselves.
Although th^ Tribune Sunshine Society la not a
charitable organization,, frequent donations of
money md regu contributions to the endowment
fund have enabled it in sundry ways to make life
brighter for others, b^'des paying postage and ex
pr^ssage on the many packages sent ou: from the
Its active membership consists of the actual
"shut Ins," the people who are desirous of bright
ening a "shut in" life by some thought, word or
deed, and those who live far from cities and who,
th"UE"h not shut in, are shu] out frurn much com
munication with their feilow beings.
HOW TO JOIN THE T. S. S.
