SLUM SETTLEMENTS
Like cam In the arid deserts, th*
Salvation Army Slum Settlements art
planted in the heart* of the congested
foreign population of the big cities.
In the eleven of these modern, fire
proof, bualnaae-lfka structure* more
than 48,004 children were cared for
last year In the United State*. Crowd
ed to the limit day and night, the de
mand* upon them are always far be
yond their resource*.
The worker* from these settlement*
visit thousand* of poor families yearly,
and become acquainted with their
need* and their troubles. They know
th* futility of preaching religion to
the starving and shivering, and they
provide the bowl of aoup and loaf ot
bread, the warm ghrment and the bit
of medicine and nursing attention that
Is needed as tbe opening for tbelr re
ligious work.
Dressing like the poorest ot their
neighbors. In gingham dress and apron,
bare headed with a little shawl about
their shoulders, these women who have
dedicated their lives to the Master’s
service go forth with scrub pall, and
brush and scrub doors, wash dishes,
launder clothes, and ■preach, pray and
h)p tbe wpak, sick and sinful. The
settlement* have been called Light
house* on s Rocky Coast.
The root absorbing and truly aitru
latte part of their work Is that ot the
nurseries. There the babies and wee
toddlers ot the community, under six
year* of age, are brought by the work
ing mothers on their way to the shop
' factory. The little one* are tended,
fed, bathed, amused, put to bed In
snowy crib* for their naps—and given
loving oare—for five cents a day, If
the mother can pay It It she cannot,
Baby gets the care anyway. One Is
never refused while there Is room
for It.
The nickel does not pay for tbe
bread, butter, milk and soup served
them at noon and at four o’clock, but
the payment ot U does help to restore
self-respect to the mother.
Toy* are provided, and the first les
son* In cleanliness, decency, unselfish
ness and Americanism are inculcated
la tbsse Utile foreigners who will some
day bear fruit in splendid citizenship.
The slum workers also coax tbe bad
boys and girls ot the neighborhood
Into tbe Halls tor Sunday School to
keep them from tbe demoralizing influ
ence of the streets.
They likewise conduct Mothers’
meetings where with a cup of tea end
cake, the hard worked women in the
bright cheer of the uplifting service
and attractive surroundings get In
spiration and encouragement to try to
■otter their condition.
