BEGGARS, AM) ROM TO TREAT THEM.
One of the most difficult things in the
world is the right administration of mate
ial help in eiiies like these, where beggary
s reduced to a fine art; where it largely
consists in impudi nee and roguery. Do
tot 1 know that 1 have been analyzed,
watched, and studied ? Have not 1 known,
ittentimes, when applicants for assistance
lave come to me, that they have inquired
ivhat sort ot a person I am, and where my
weak side is? The moment they began
0 present their case, 1 saw that they were
?oing to try to get on that side, and I
straightened myself up combatively, and
wiid, “Xo, you don't
There are a great many cases in which
1 turn away from my door persons who
ipply for help, that I am sorry about for
Months afterwards; but I cannot help it.
1 have the reputation of being a recklessly
jeuerotis man—which is not so; and I
lave a great many friends who like to in
crease that reputation by saying to every
poor dog that comes to them for help,
"Mr. Beecher is a very kind-hearted man ;
?o to him. and he will look into your ease.”
[ suppose there are five hundred cases, in
the course of a year, of persons who come
to me, and say that they were sent by
members of my society, who assured them
that I was a kind man. I always say to
inch persons, "Who sent you?” They
cay. "Mr. So-and-so sent me." I say,
"Did ke give you anything?” If they say
[hat he did not, I sav, “Then I shall not
gi\e you anything. Go right back to him,
and tell him to do something for you, anil
send me a letter, over his own signature,
assuring me of the fact, and then I will do
something for you.';
Of course 1 ilo not suppose that any of
vou ever did such a thing! Of course, I
know that any of you would yourselves
give to persons in need tiiat applied to you
for help, instead of sending them to me.
But when there is such an organized sys
tem of beggary, one is perplexed to know
what to do.
Mnt there is a hopelessness in this mat
ter of administering help, arising from the
eonscinusness that in so many eases one is
deceived by applicants for aid. There is
this feeling often: “1 have given away a
hundred dollars this month, and I am
pretty certain that ninety-five dollais of it
have been squandered, and what a thank
less business git ingis, where in nine times
out of ten what you give is undeserved
and thrown away!”
Then right on top of that will come the
case of a person apparently in distress, of
which I will say, “1 am sure this is all
right;” and I will give live or ten dollars,
| as the case may be ; and before the person
gets out of the house something or other
will turn up, something will appear on the
surface, that will satisfy me that 1 have
been taken in again.
1 always pity the next two or three folks
that come after that! They get punished
for the imposition that has been practised
by others on me! And then 1 turn upon
myself and say, “A pretty fellow, vou are!
These last were worthy cases, and you re
fused to help them because you were so
stupid as to be taken in by those artful
cases!" And there it is. A man that is
lull of feeling cannot help being imposed
upon.
I suppose I do slop over sometimes.
Well, 1 never saw a pan just full of milk
that did not slop over. If you do not want
any slopping-over, take a pint of milk and
put it in a big bucket. There will be no
slopping over then. And a man who has
only a pint of feeling, in an enormous
bucket, never slops over. But if a man is
lull of feeling, up to the very brim, how is
lie going to carry himself without spilling
over? lie cannot help it. There will be
dripping over the edges all the time. And
as every tlower or blade of grass rejoices
when the rain falls upon it, so every recip
ient along the w ay in which a man with
overflowing generous feeling walks is
thankful for his bounty.
Howto carry a nature full of feeling,
and administer without making mistakes,
i do not know, you do not, nobody does,
nobody ever did, and nobody ever will;
so we must take it and get along as best
we can. Life is a kind of zig-zag any
how ; and we are obliged to resort to ex
pedients, and make experiments, and
learn from our blunders, which are inevit
able. We fipd out a great deal more from
men's mistakes than from their successes.
But after ail, 1 am not sorry that I have
been imposed upon, and that 1 have trus
ted men that were not w orthy to be trusted.
I tun not sorry that l have been duped.
It falls out from an abundance of generous
feeling. It is the mistake of a disposition
that 1 think is a great deal better to have,
with all the impositions which it suffers,
than that kind of cold caution which pre
vents you venturing anything on the side
of kindness, because vou/alwavs want to
be safe.
1 was much impressed with what 1 once
heard my father say. His chance sayings
have been like rudders to me all my life
[ long. A man whom he had befriended
[ and done a great deal for, turned against
hint, and acted very meanly. One day
father came home very much excited about
it, and 1 expected he’ was going to blow
out—for he shook his head in a peculiar
way that he had when his feelings were
very much wrought up. He said, (raising
his hand, and bringing it down slowly,
but with great emphasis,) “Well, when I
have acted honorably toward a man, and
he goes away and acts meanly toward me,
1 am never sorry that 1 acted houorabfy
toward him!”
Now, 1 think that was a sign of nobility.
He had a great many of those signs in him.
Never be sorry, then, for any generons
thing that you ever did, even if it was be
trayed. Never be sorry that you were
magnanimous, if the man was mean after
ward. Never be sorry that you gave. It
was right for you to give, e\ en if \ ou were
imposed upon. You cannot aflbrd to keep
i on the safe side by being mean. You hail
: better, many times in tour life, for the
.-ake of ke ping yourself in the practice
of benevolence, do things that are ques
tionable, rather than judge so narrowly
I that you w ill always be on the side of cold
[calculation, (live your heart some head
way, and in the long run it will be safer
