o( fuinlllest which can manage to <.'ko
out a llvethopd BO long as everything
goese smoothly with them, but as soon
as the rent money is demanded for
medicine they are compelled to turn
to tho public charily.
Probably Iho most typical as well ns
the largest of clinics for free medical
treatment Is that conducted by the
University and llollovue Hospital Med?
ical College, which is the madldl
school of New York University, nt
? 'it 11 street utid 1st .avenue, in the heart
ot the polygot Vgasiiouso" district
Last year the clinic handled ill.S.V.t
cases , and the number is now av rag?
ing 8,50(1 a mouth. The ''gashousG''
district is one of tue sections of the
town which up to a few years ago re?
tained a population of docldely Irish
complexion, hut of late tin Gaels have
been getting forced out by the o.vor
w in lining incursion of Italinus mid
Jews, itending up from the lower East
Side. This means to a clinic
fewer broken bones and battered faces,
and more eye, ear and thtoat troubles.
World's Saddest Street.
'I'hi' medical school, with Iis spaci?
ous laboratories und lecture halls and
its great clinic, is situated at the
bead of what has been called the sad?
dest block in the world. On the op?
posite tdde of the Street is llollovue,
the Iii;; froo hospital of the city, con?
stantly crowded with over l.nuu pati?
ents, ami offering a wealth of clinical
material for the students of the
school. Farther down the street is
the morgue, ami at the foot of tho
street, on the river front, are the of?
fices of the department of charities,'
from which boats are constantly
leaving crowded with drunks or petty!
crooks, bound for the workhouse on
Illnckwoll'a Island, or with the pltlalile
flotsam and jetsam of society tlinl
drifts lo the public ulnihouso. A
stranger who strolled Into the block
would get the Impression, thai he had
found the gateway of all the sorrows
of the world.
It is a sad procession that moves in
und out of tho clinic every day while
the doors are open, between the hours
of HI and :t o'clock. There are little
sores and many of I hem Buffering
from diseases''Iho child need never
know: old women scarcely abb- to
totter out from their squalid rooms to
the place where lhe "free doctors" arc;
huge truckmen or 'longshoremen who
swnger in ?Ith cuts or bruises proba?
bly received in some brawl; frail
young wone u already palpably marked
for consumption, the white plague or
the tenements; drunken men; women
who have been beaten by their hus?
bands, and all the various types of
human IHIness and disease.
Ragged, clothes are the rule on the
pnrt of those who come to the clfrilc
for I real men t "Put on old clothes for
the free doctor." is n maxim of the
gnsllOIISC district, but most of the pati?
ents do not have lo dress for the part.I
Their working clothes are often their
only ones, and these uro sufficiently
ragged lo enlist sympathy.
As the patients enter the spacious
wailing room of the clinic they go lo
the receiving disk, where they tell
their symptoms to a kindly-faced mh'ri
who has lh?. faculty of taking n per?
sonal Inleresl In the most uuprepos
sing, and receive numbered cards to
the physicians in tin different depart?
ments. Then I hey take seats on the
rows of benches assigned to tho dif?
ferent classes of ills, and -wait until
their number Is balled and the physi?
cian Is ready for them.
To the Stray observant the pllirulty
dejected appearance of the straggling
line that moves lo the desk is height?
ened by that glimpses of white clad,
children, some of them n
qlorl physicians and nrirsos bustllug

Tho Shilling Trick.
A wandering sleight of band man
was entertaining some loungers with
an exhibition of his tricks. After
showing a good number of them he
"Hill I have one good trick that I
call the shilling trick."
Of course I bey all wanted to see
(hat, so be instructed a good number
of them to give him n shilling after
having marked It and carefully noted
the date. About a dozen of the by?
standers did so, and he took them
all, shook them up and then showed
each Minn another shilling than the
one lie bad marked, accompanying
each shilling wiih (lie question:
"Is that yours?''
Each man of course said "No," and
he strolled awny, saying:
"Thon they must all be mine."?Lon?

origin was little .suspected by It.; ador?

"Garibaldi's Defense of the Roman
Republic" this origin la explained by
Admiral WhlhlngtmVIngrhm, who was
In Montevideo In 184(1, win ti and where

Gladstone translated." In the same
letter be gives bis impression of the
