Billy Arnold, erstwhile minstrel,
who abandoned the stage to take up
evangelistic work, is to spend Christ
mas day tr Rock Island, and in the ev
ening will conduct a meeting at the
shelter maintained by the Christian
Volunteers at 122 Twentieth street.
Arnold has frequently appeared in
tri-city theatres. He went the pace un

penniless. Broken in spirit, he had de

converted at a street religious meet

The Volunteers' sheiter is the haven
of the "down-and-outs," unfortunates
who otherwise would be compelled to
sleep at police headquarters. Major
Lampson, who is in charge of the
shelter, fixes a nominal charge for
lodging at the shelter, but will not turn
a man away If he happens not to have
the price of a bed. He has had us
high as 40 guests in a night.
Not All Bad.
"Not every man who is out of mon
ey and without employment is bad,"
Major Lampson said. "Of course many
of those who come to us are drinkers.
They have been put where they are by
drink. But they are not made better
by turning them aside. Sleeping in a
city jail is a hardener. I find what the
most of these fellows needs is a cheer
ing word, a little encouragement. For
many of them work is found in the
city. To prove that the majority of
them are honest and want to work, the
other morning a police officer came to
the shelter and said he knew where
two men could get jobs. I walked in
to the main room where two dozen- of
the boys were seated about the stove
and asked all those who wanted work
to rise. Every last soul was on his
feet. As it happened, there were jobs
for two only. Both of these men are
working every day. Their employers
are satisfied with theni, the men are
happy, and likely will remain and make
