THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SUNDAY, JANUARY 5, 1913.
'Chip In" Cent Apiece to
Help Out "Rose," Who Is
In Need of Shoes.
Rose needs some shoes.
The soles of Rose's feet are on the
ground, which Is pretty uncomfortablo
on days when the pavements are wet
and cold. Rose's shoes what there Is
left of them, are soaked through and
through on such days, and the damp
ness and cold gets Into her poor old
bones and make her ache all over.
"Why don't she get some new shoes,
or stay at home In bad weather?" is
the question that some might ask.
There's a reason.
Tt Isn't that Rose hasn't a home, for
she has. Out In a dreary section of
the city Rose lives in two- tlnv rooms,
for which she pays the munlflclent sum
, of Ka month.
Rose sells papers for a living. Tou can
see her almost any day up in H street,
not far from Fourteenth. She sella
The Times, and on Thursdays she sells
the Saturday Evening Post, and when
he is lucky, she makes sometimes as
much as $1.60 a week, though it is more
often a, solitary dollar.
In all kinds of weather you can see
old Rose, who says she is fifty-nine
years old. She reckons her age from
the time the war broke out.
TTow Rose Is too big to believe in
Santa Claus, and. there are other rea
sons, too, why she doubts the exist
ence Of that kind old saint. But there
afcel other- .people who do, and one of
them Js alary, who also sells papers.
' Mary Ha san Idea.
This other, woman Is poor, extremely
poor. She lost everything she pos
sessed in the San Francisco earthquake,
and since then has been making her
Hvtac l?y selling papers In the various
cities between California and Wash
ington. Though she is sUIl poor; though she
Is compelled to keep her business going-In
all sorts of weather; though the
returns from her Investment are small,
MaryBailey still has that happy,
buoyant, gladdening 'smile that cheers
everybody who passes her place of busi
ness. Fifteenth and G streets.
Mary Bailey wanted to do something
for Rose, but she hadn't enough money
to buy the shoes that Mary needs so
badly. She had an idea, though, an
idea that was prompted by her own
sympathy for the poor old blind news
paper woman who had no shoes. She
had heard of the St. Nicholas Girl of
The Washington Times, who is only a
St. Nicholas Girl about three weeks in
the year, and at other times only an
ordinary newspaper person. So between
editions, when Bhe wasn't so busy,
JJary Bailey brought this other news
paper seller, the blind one, down to the
Munsey building and asked to see the
St. Nicholas GirL But that she thought
that it would be so much sweeter and
would mean so much more to Rose and i
the boys (meaning the little news mer-i
ccants of the downtown streets) it the
".pennies -with- which to buy the shoes
Newsboys to Rescue.
Mary had already collected 5 cents
from the newsboys near Rose's place of
business, and these 5 cents meant as
much to the five little ragged chaps who
gave them, as $100 might from the men
and women who could afford to give
them. TVhen the source and purpose of
these-five pennies had been explained, it
was not long before 13 more had been
added to the 5 cents that Mary had col
lected, a.nd every one of these 113 pen
nies had been cheerfully given by the
little newsboys who collect in The Times
alleyway, back of B street, each day.
to' obtain "their bundle of merchandise.
It's only a little study in optimism;
only a little straw blown across the
pathway of a busy writer, which goes
to show that there is no movement or
kindness or philanthropy which does not
cast its seed la the mo3t unexpected
places. The spirit of giving found Its
v ay up a back alleyway of a busy city,
and into the hearts and minds of these
little newsies, some of whom, perhaps,
had been unable to make any gift for
the Christmas season other than this.

"Turkey Trot" Tabooed
By Boston Society
BOSTON, Jan. 5. Boston society has
triumphed over the "turkey trot." At
the most exclusive dance of the season,
the Assembly, at the Copley-Plaza, the
insidious "trot," despite its appeal to
the younger and more vivacious ele
ment, waa rigidly suppressed.
Protests were futile, and some of the
dancers, whp see no harm In the "tur
key trot." or who think Boston Is too
straight laced, left early.
