H Mrs. Josephs Says Her
K Church Refused Ade-
H quate Help.
HH Biohop Boud Declares That the Ward
Hj I Has Helped Her and Will
jH Help Her.
M If the well-dressed crowd that surges
jH up and down Main .street and in and
H out of shops, chatting and smiling,
Bm could know that today, wlth'Jn a short
Hj distance, a mother, two Httlo children,
hH and a dangerously sick baby, are In
V positive want for food, what would
flH they do? That Is the case of Mrs. Em-
yLw ma Josephs and her children, living
flH at 42 Depot avenue. At the appproach
ml of Christmas, when moat mothers are
)fl ; planning how they will fill the stock-
flfl , ihgs of their little ones, this mother Is
I wondering how she can fill the mouths
D , of her children, even from one day to
another. And with it she tells a story
of those who have failed her In her
WM hour of greatest need, the members of
MB the church she was "born into."
M Dingy Boom Her Home.
WM Last night she sat In the ding) room
mm she calls home, with Its bare floors and
BE its curtalnless window. Her two little
HD girls, one of them Just recovering from
Hfl a serious illness, and her baby boy, of
flH . whose life the doctors despaired, and
HH who is still very sick, were in one cor-
HJ ncr of the room asleep.
HJ "It 1b about nine months ago that
MM my husband deserted me," she said.
OH "He had never supported me the -way
HH he should have done since we were
HH married. You see, he hated children,
jMJ nnd when my babies were born he
IB begged mo to give them away; but
HI there Is no man on earth I would do
J that for. Since he has left me he has
mm Bent the children a nlckle or a dime
HJ I in a letter. Beyond that he has done
PJ ' nothing. I do not know where he Is.
Hj j Forgot How to Sleep.
flH "I took in washing to support myself
HA and children until the baby took so
HI slclc He had pneumonia. But some
HJ of the people I wash for thought it
HH jnlght be diphtheria, and so they took
HJ their washes away from me. Perhaps
HH it was Just as well, for from that time
Ml ! I hardly had the child out of my arms,
HJ and the doctors Said that it was my
HJ watching him that saved him. Night
HJ , after night I sat with him, and I had
HJ ' no sleep for so long that when I could
HJ . take It I had to have something to
HJ make me sleep. And not a woman in
HJ this ward volunteered to relieve me
HJ during six weeks. I was a Mormon,
H . "but I do not think I care to belong to
Hj the same church with such people.
B Appealed to the Ward.
H "During that time some days we had
HJ nothing to eat, and I was almost In de-
IHJ spair, yet no one came to me. At last
HJ ' I appealed to the ward. They sent me
HJ some flour and a bottle' of preserves.
HJ! We lived on that until it was gone and
HJ t thon the county sent me $5 to help pay
H my rent, and some flour. Again we
mm lived on that, but when that was gone,
flj j I felt ashamed to ask the county for
HJ -more, so I appealed to the church. They
HJ sent back word that there was nothing
M In the ward for me. Then someone else
HJ j corrected that and said there was, and
flj ! that they would send something, but
Mb , that was a long time ago, and nothing
HJ has been sent.
HJ "I asked one of the Mormon slaters
Hj to sit with me only one night, when the
Hj doctors thought my baby was dying,
HJ and she refused. I then asked her who
Hj I could get. She answered that she
Hj knew of no one.
H Served Her Bight
HJ "The teachers ward teachers came
Hj to investigate my circumstances about
HJ this time, and when they found my
Ml condition, they told me It served me
iDI right for not marrying In the church
Hi my husband is not a Mormon. They
HJ did nothing for me.
UB Besonted the Telephone,
MJ "One of them wanted to know how
MR it was that a poor woman like me could
flH afford to have a telephone. They
WM sneered about It and did not wait to
HJ hear how it is that I have one. At
HJ the time the Consolidated Oil company
was robbed my uncle from the coast
Hj was visiting me. He was so Impressed
m by the occurrence that he insisted on
putting a 'phono in my house, for which
he paid, for he eald a woman alone
H with three little ones, as I am, is in
PI dancer. I do not know what I would
M have done without It. I cannot leave
HH the house and that has been my only
pi means of calling a doctor.
BB Two Weeks to Move.
H "I cannot tell how depressed I have
HJ felt today. The landlord came to tell
HHI me that he has sold this place, and
HHJ that I have two weeks to get out. . 1
Hj have no money to pay the rent and no
HI . money to pay for removal. We have
HIE nothing to eat in the house and the
HJl baby is too sick for rne to leave him
IMF to hunt for work. I had Drs. Wilcox
H Odell and Walte all here at one tlnv
IBJ and the child nearly died. Tim blttci:-
HJD est part of this to me is that the ward
HP has refused me when I asked for help.
HJH They yald I was not grateful, but I am.
H only I cannot gush over people, and
HJ when I say I am grateful it means
Mfl everything. The county has been kind
Hfl to me, but I do not like to appeal for
Ufl more help.
Hfl Help From Methodists.
("And another thing. It was not help
from the Mormons that I got, but from
the Methodist church, during the long
Illness of my children. Think of It' The
greatest kindness has come to me from
outsiders. I only wlah I could get to
working again, for it hurts me to see
my children go to bed crying from hun
Dr. Walte, when asked about the wo
"She is certainly in a destitute con
dition. I understand tho county, did J
something for her, and the county doc
tor was there when I attended her chil
dren. You would better go and sco for
yourself her condition. Imagine a hus
band who would send five and ten cents
per month to his sturvlng family!"
Tho Bishop's Statoment.
J. W. Boud, bishop of the ward, was
asked concerning the woman's story.
"What nhe says Is falso. The church
did help her, and a woman of our
church went there and helped to nurse
her baby during the sickness of hor
two children. Not only have we assist
ed her, but we arc willing to asslwt her
"Id it Into that you said there was
nothing In the ward for her and her
"No; It is not, I was not at homo
when tho woman'o little girl came to
my wife, but as soon as I came I sent
the ward teachers to Investigate "
"But that was some time ago, was it
"Yes. but I ordered them to have somo
provisions sent to her."
"They were never Bent, though, were
"I understand not, for Mrs. Joseph
sent an Insulting letter to' those who
hold the funds, as ehc was very Indig
nant at not receiving attention at
Doe3 Not Boliove It.
"Is it true that the provisions were
refused to her on the .grounds that she
married a non-Mormon?"
"I do not bcllevo that story. It Is
true that provisions were refused her
by those who take charge of them be
cause she had no order from me. Like
any other well-regulated business, the
work Is systemlzed and she needed an
order from me. I am sorry that she
saw fit to allow this trouble publlRhed.
I do not know the woman personally.
We shall look Into her case at once."
When Mrs. Josephs was asked about
the insulting letter she said: "Yes; I
did write a letter to the woman who
keeps the provisions, but I did not know
It was Insulting. I simply wrote to
her begging her to do something for
me. I told her I had asked for help
time and again and It had not come. I
said In that letter that I. would leave
It with the L,ord whether she had proved
a true sister In the church to me when
she could allow my Uttlo children to
cry for bread. If that Is lnoultlng, I
did not know It. I want to say that the
doctors and the county were very good
to me, and if it had not been for them
and the help of outsiders, I do not know
what I would have done, nor what I
shall do In tho future, unless somo of
them help me. I can not look to the
Mormon's for any help, for they have
failed me In my greatest need."

Tung Liang Cheng, tho Chlncso minister

Traditional Policy." Among olhor thlngo,
"For 2000 years China has not Bwcrvcd
an lota from steadily pursuing a. conHlat
ent policy of peace. This may bo put
down to the fact that all tho men who

affairs havo Invariably been true followers
"It may bo urged that tho Chinese peo
ple have broucht much unnecessary suf
ferings upon themselves by their firm ad
herence to tho principles of peace. It Is
true that they havo loft their country
virtually exposed to foreign Invasions.
Thoy maintain no effective army, thoy
havo no battleships. Thcso weaknesses
aro patent to all. But China's strength
does not lie bo noar tho surface.
"They may bo wanting In thoso ohowy

thoy aro endowed to an eminent degrco
with thoso hardy virtues which toll moat

"With a view of reducing tho possibility
of war as much as possible arbitration la
the method now beat recommended for tho

Is a stop In tho right direction. But an
long as nations aro armed to tho tcoth
