BREAD FOR THE POOR
STARVING MEN WAIT NEARLY ALL
NIGHT FCR A HALF LOAF.
Few Eyee See Their Woe and No Ques
tions Are A - t .1 A Private Charity
That Helps Many a Hungry Wretch and
Saves Hundreds of Men from Crime.
Gaunt ami ui gainlj- are the shadows
which stretch on oover a part of East Tenth
street between he hour of midnight and
:e first gray of the early dawn. Broad
way lies on one side, with its long lines of
great business 1 uildings piling up and up
and on and onus far as the eye can reach.
A block away, over on Fourth avenue,
there is more 1 ght, more life, more wan
derers mostly flashy boisterers from the
Bowery resorts, a little way below. Be
tween, in the cr street, closed in by high
massive walls cn either side, there it is
that the shadov s grow dark and desolate
On a dark nig it it would appear that
way were it no; for a little street lamp
which sheds it? glimmering ray out
through the dai kness until it meets and
dances merrily up on the shadowy walls.
Then its light dt nces on down the street
until it reveals a dark, dense, suspicious
looking mass, hi ddled in a long line close
against the buih ing's walls, almost buried
into oblivion by he deeper shadows at its
base. Watch closely from the distance
and your eyes dc not deceive you this big
black mass movi s about quietly, intermit
tently, orderly. You are not mistaken; it
is composed of n en.
Curiosity ma; draw you nearer. You
begin to distinguish the component parts
of the gathering. As you see them dis
tinctly they do not'inspire a great deal of
confidence. Th re is nothing prepossessing
or reassuring ab rat them. Indeed, as you
see how thread 1. are and ragged and dirty
and hungry air lost cadaverous they look
you pause and debate whether it would
not be safer to n tire while the opportunity
yet remains. Y in fail to understand what
is causing a con,rcgation of these rough,
poor, destitute ndividuals at such an un
timely hour. You are uncertain whether
it is a strike, a ockont, or only a group of
sleepy laborers - raiting for orders to begin
their daily toil.
If you decide to approach and investi
gate you find tb tt they are waiting in an
orderly line, tlie head of which stands
close to a wide, low little door in one of
the big buildirgs. There are anywhere
between 100 and 200 of them; and within
the little doorwiy there are two or three
lights, and two or three men busily en
gaged in nil llm ,nto lnmps some white
material and th -owing them into a mam
moth basket wl ich takes up nearly all of
the door space. Behind them stands a big
pile of the wfcMl stuff which they are so
rapidly cutting up and transferring to the
The mob of ragged, hungry men are
waiting at 2:30r clock in the morning, each
for one of these hunks of bread which the
three men inside are getting ready to dis
tribute. Vint r or summer, rain or clear,
freezing, biting or blowing, hot, sultry or
suffocating, however the night may be,
this same hungry mob can be seen there
every morning, waiting for the three busy
men Inside to d ile out the mite which pos
sibly alone can -ieep them from starving.
Tbe loaves ar all cut up into halves or
thirds, and the doling out begins. It is
first come, tir-it served. Kvery one knows
it, and there is no fighting, no crowding,
no pushing, no wTsngUng. The line moves
up steadily, am as each ragged individual
grasps his quot i of the white, sweet bread
he bites off a iuge mouthful and walks
away into t!ie deserted streets, continuing
the first oporut on till every crumb of bis
chunk of bread has U-en safely stored
away He has no questions to answer.no
certificates ;f ; invert y to present, no tales
of misery or of misfortune to unfold, for
the proprietors of the great baking com
pany, which tlrQ disposes of its left over
bread, are satisfied that none but the
worthy, the destitute, the starring, would
wait in the Btn rt until 2 or 3 o'clock in the
mornint; for th : bumble stipend. It is the
only private d. le in all of the big metropo
lis indeed, tin only one of any size or ex
tent in the country.
Kor fifteen ears this same crowd of
poverty strick -n and starving mm has
waited patient y early every morning be
fore the little door on Tenth street, and
many years before that the baking com
pany bewail its practice of distributing its
leftover breai of the day before among
the poor In 1 VT7, the numlier of starving
men and wotm n who flocked to its doors
became so large that the present system
of the early t lOrning dole was adopted.
Women who were known to be destitute
and worthy were given cards. They call
during the da; and get the quota which
is saved for th. m, they also are frequently
given Ooffec or something else to drink.
The women vhogo regularly every day
for their aba e of bread Dumber about
thirty, while he gathering of men who
stand in the dark street every morning
scarcely ever f ills short of WO. An average
of MO loaves f bread is tbe daily amount
divided iunoni them.
With the services of the three men who
have charge o the dole and other inciden
tal expenses, i he cost of keeping these 180
or 200 itidividi als from starving, possibly,
amount to at out tlOO per month, or lie
tween three a id four cents a day for each.
This includes the cost of the coffee, a cup
of which is gi .-en to each man every morn
ing during th cold winter months.
Touching ate the tales of gratitude which
occasionally r Sscb the ears of the men who
dole out the bread and the superinteadent
of the comp my, although they seldom
question the tagged recipients of the char
ity regarding their misfortunes. Mothers
with starving little ones at home, hus
bands with A-ivcs and babies sick and
dying, brotbe -s and si..ters whose faces are
haggard with hunger and wan with weary
watching ov t father, mother or loved
ones, hundrei s of them find their way at
one time or another to this quiet dole,
where they jet the meager loaf which
tides them vcr for another day's battle,
and no one is the wiser, for they come anil
go at the dead of night, while the well fed
city sleeps uu 1 no mortal ear can listen to
their sighs at d groans of hopeless despera
tion. New York Recorder.
