is known as the richest church in the
word its property consisting of acres
of tenements on the lower west side
Of Manhattan Island comprising what
originally was the Trinity farm. De
spite the religious character of the
Trinity corporation the tenements were
allowed to run to the lowest ebb of
hygienic repair, and this excited much
criticism a few years ago.
The first and most powerful critic
was Miss Dinwiddle, who was instruct
ed by the Charity Organization society
to thoroughly investigate Trinity's ten
ement conditions and report. She lid
so, and her article was illustrated by
photographs showing some of the most
broken down and poverty infested
houses owned by the church.
Naturally the story caused a great
furore. and the newspapers followed
with severe arraignments of the man
agement which permitted a church
from which Christianity was preached
to violate those ethics with its tenants.
Something had to be done, anil Trin

Her duties consist of visiting the

of those who pay Trinity for their

Trinity will make amends for past

Miss Dinwiddle has the satisfaction
of knowing that, although she began

The Meaning of Millions.
In ns:ronomileal calhu:ations it is
most difficult to grasp the meaning of
milious of miles, but some idea in this
ronnectin may be gathered from the
statement of the time that would be
conrumed by an express train or the
shot from a cannon to cover celestial
space. Now, the distance from the
earth to the sun is about 02,000,000
mUes. and light traveling from the
solar luminary comes to us at the rate
of 186,700 miles a second in vacuo. It
traverses this distance in eight and a
quarter minutes. but a railway train
proceeding at sixty miles an hour
wou'd take 173 years to cover tie dis
tance to the sun. The circumference
of the ellipse forming the orbit of the
earth around the sun is about 577.700,.
000 miles in length, and the earth cov
ers this distance in 865% days, travel
ing at the rate of 05.010 miles an hour
or 1,008 miles a minute. or nearly 1,100
times as fast as a train going at a
mile a minute. It is therefore clear
that a train proceeding at this speed
would require nearly 1.100 years to ac
complish the journey around the
earth's orbit.-London Tit-Bits.
Hard Penance In Mexico.
The Mexicans are extremely re
ligious, and their faith enters into
their daily lives to a remarkable ex
tent. During Holy Week the native
women who are anxious to do penance
for their sins go on. their knees from
one shrine to another, devoting hours
to tie painful task. At this time tem.
porary shrines are set up. and to the
remote villages it is no infrequent
sight to see half a dozen parties of
penitents traveling in this manner
over the sharp stones and gravel from
one shrine to the other, apparently ob
livious to the burning rays of the sun
and the discomforts of their progress.
Sometimes an attendant spreads a
serapo or blanket before them to pro
tect their knees, but this is consid
ered to detract from the merit of the
penance, and most of the women--it
is always the females who undertake
the task-go through with it scorning
any such protection.-Wide World
