may hire a longshoreman for nine or

along the docks is thirty and forty cents
an hour, and in unloading vessels some
times 400 longshoremen make as much as

Chicago, Dec 30. Mrs. Potter Palmer

The effect of indiscriminate charity iti
breeding poverty must also lie taken into
account. Tie lord mayor's fund of $:iT.0,
OiKi, which was fluns out bv a charitable
impulse to the poor of east London a few
winters ago, caused far more poverty than
it cured. M.iny who were gel ting on fairly
well without it left their work to depend
upon this fund, and not only forfeited
their self re-pect, but sadly demoralized
themselves ly the deceit which they prac
ticed in getting it.
"The tendi ncy of the fund.'' wrote Mr.
Barnett shor ly after its distribution, "has
been to creat a trust in lies. Its organi
zation of vis tors and committee offered a
show of resistunre to lies, but over such
resistance lies easily triumphed and many
notorious evil livers pot by a Rood story
the relief denied to others. Anecdotes are
common as to the wav in which visitors
w-ere deceived, committees hoodwinked
and money wrongly gained."
i he effect of this distribution upon the
applicants at large, as one visitor sums it
up, was this, "The foundation of such inde
pendence of character as they possessed has
been shaken, ami some of thein have taken
the first step in mendicancy, which is too
often never retraced." Poverty which
must be relieved is always with us; the
problem is to administer the relief in ways
which will not tend to pauperize the recip
ient. That lesson has been very imper
fectly learned, and the net result of a large
share of our well meant charities is the in
crease of pauperism. Rev. Washington
Gladden in Century.

"The most pathetic scene I ever wit
nessed," said Judge R. L. Cawthorn, of
Texas, "was a third of a century ago, but
it is as plain to my eyes today as it was
then. We h id been bothered by horse
t hieves down on the frontier, and you know
what that Means in a wild country. A
crowd of us started out after the scoun
drels, and just before we reached the Rio
Grande we saw two horsemen off to tho
left who acted suspiciously. After them
we went, anl it was a pretty race for
awhile till they disappeared behind a
clump of tree. We had shot tostop them,
and when we got in sight again we found
that one horse had been shot and they had
deserted him, while loth were riding the
other. They were evidently Mexicans a
man and a bey and the man showed fight,
turning and firing at us, finally hitting
our deputy t heriff. We pained on them
rapidly, and presently a well directed fire
sent them all in a heap.
"When we reached them the 'bov' was
kneeling in rront of the dying Mexican,
sobbing and Moaning as if her heart would
break, while her hair, which had fallen
from her cap, feW below her waist. It was
a case of elo iemcnt, and they had taken
tis for her fat icr's servants, while we had
been equally stupid and had taken them
for horse thie .-es. When he becan to gasp
she drew a lii.tle pearl handled revolver,
and before any one could t hink of stopping
her placed the muzzle tinder her ear and
full into his f rins a corpse. Xo, we never
heard who t ley were. We buried them
and went, af.er the horse thieves." St.
