PRACTICAL PHILANTHROPY.
tnstltntloB for ths Train lu(c of Jewish
Youth at Hanover. ,
A novelty in practical philanthropy'
Is described by W. 0. Fox, formerly
consul to Brunswick, Germany, whot
has just returned to Washing-ton.
"During' my visit to Hanover," said
Mr. Fox in the courso of a recent conver
sation with a St. Louis Globe-Democrat
correspondent, "I examined an Insti
tution for the training of Jewish
youth. The institution is something1
entirely new. It has been established
by Alexander Moritz Simon. Mr.
Simon is the American vice consul at
Hanover, where he is also a prominent
banker. Those who have knowled
of the situation in Russia and Germany
to-day fully understand that ono of the
chief causes of the anti-Semitic move
ments in those countries is that the
Jews are solely dealers and traders.,
This is because children naturally ac-'
quire a taste for and follow the occu-J
pation of their parents and other rela-,
tives.
"Mr. Simon told me," continued Mr.,
Fox, "that in his visits to the United
States in 1S83 and li90, he remarked
the distressing conditions of the Jew-,
ish immigrants, arising mainly from
the fact that they wore unable to per
form such work as they could obtain
from labor. Knowing no mechanical
trade, they wero of necessitj' driven to
peddling. Mr. Simon, some time ago,,
became convinced that if many of the
Jewish youth in Russia and Eastern
Persia were properly taught trades, it
would be the best answer to the chief
argument of the anti-Semitic agitators.
Actuated by this belief, ho founded
this institution. Ho has purchased
some seventy acres of land near tho
city of nanovcr. Tho necessary build
ings havo been erected so that sixty
boys can be accommodated. The prime
object is to teach agriculture, garden
ing and fruit culture in all their
uicmcuics. v.iirpcmenng, lociisumuing, f
ehoemaking, baking and other trades j
will be taught. lho movement and
the institution have already received
the hearty indorsement and assistance 1
of prominent Israelites in Europe. (
There is every evidence that the ex- i
periment will prove successful and pio
neer the way for similar institutions ia
other parts of Europe.'"

WHUflWI
THE 3TAN OF HABIT.
IJCEOJin K. JEROME.
HERE were
three of ns in
the smoke-room
of the Alexan
dra; a very good
friend of nfino, a
man who has
knocked about
the world pretty
consider a b 1 y
which would
seem to be no
more than fair,
for before that
the world had
its turn, and a
pretty long turn, at knocking him
about myself, and, in the opposite
corner a shy-looking, unobtrusive man,
the editor, as we subsequently learned,
of a New York Sunday paper.
My friend and I were discussing hab
its, good and bad.
"After the first few months," said
my friend, "rfcis no more effort for a
man to be a saint than to be a sinner;
it becomes a mere matter of habit"
"I know," I interrupted, "it is every
whit as easy to spring out of bed the
instant you are called as to say 'all
right,' and turn over for just another
five minutes' snooze when you have
got into the way of it. It is no
more trouble not to 6wear than to swear
if you get in the custom of it. Toast
and water is as delicious as champagne
when you have acquired the taste for
It. Things are also just as easy, the
other way about. It is a mere question
of making your choice and sticking
to it"
He agreed with me.
"Now take these cigars of mine," he
said, pushing his open case towards me,
"Thank you," I replied, hurriedly,
"I'm not smoking, this passage."
"Don't be alarmed," ho answered,
"I meant merely as an argument. Now
one of these would make you ill for a
week."
I admitted his premise.
"Very well," ho continued. '-Now J
as you know, smoke them all day long,
and enjoy them. Why? Because I have
got into the habit. Years ago, when I
was a young man, I smoked expensive
Havanas. I found that I was ruining
myself. It was absolutely necessary
that I should take to a cheaper weed.
1 was living in Belgium at the time,
and a friend showed me these. I don't
know wrat they are probably cab
bage leaves soaked in guano they
tasted to me like that, at first but
they were cheap. Buying them by the
COO, they cost mo three a penny. I
determined to like them, and started
with ono a day. It was terrible work,
I admit; but, as I said to myself,
nothing could bo worse than the Hav
anas themselves had been in the be
ginning. Smoking is an acquired tasto,
and it must be as easy to learn to like
one flavor as another. I persevered, and
I conquered. Before the year was over
I could think of them without loathinjr,
at the end of two I could smoke them
without positive discomfort Now I
prefer them to any other brand on the
market Indeed, a good cigar dis
agrees with me."
I suggested it might have been less
painful to have given up smoking al
together. "I did think of it," he replied, "but a
man who doesn't smoke always seems
to me bad company. There is some-
i thing very sociable about smoke.
He leant back and puffed great
clouds in the air, filling the small den
w ith an odor suggestive of bilge water
and cemeteries.
"I knew one man," ho continued,
"who had a regular Mrs. Caudle of a
wife. All day long she talked to him
or at him or of him, and at night he

i fll aslpnn to tho risinrr n-n1 fallinr
rhvthm of what she thought about him.
At last she died and his friends con-
gratulated him, telling him that now j
ne would enjoy peace. But it was the
neace of the desert and the man did not
enjoy it For two and twentv vears I
her voice had filled the honse nene-
trated through the conservatory and
floated in faint shrilly waves of sound
round the garden and out in the road
beyond. The silence now pervading
everywhere frightened and disturbed
him. Tho place was no longer home
to him. He missed the breezy morn
ing insult, tho long winter evenings
reproaches beside the flickering fire.
At night he could not sleep. For hours
ho would Ue tossing restlessly, his ears
aching for tho accustomed soothing
flow of invective.
" 'Ah,' he would cry bitterly to him
self, 'it Is the old story; tve. never
know the value of a thing until wo
hue lost it
"He grew 111. The doctor dosed him
with sleeping draughts In vain. At last
they told him bluntly that hia life de
pended upon his finding anotber help

sleop.
"There were plenty of wives In tha
neighborhood of the type he wanted;
but the unmarried women were, of ne
cessity, inexperienced, and his health
was buch that he could not aSord the
time to train them.
"Fortunately, just as desnair was
nbout to take possession of him, a man

died in the next parish, literally talked J ewoke. His wife told him she had

She was a cantankerous old woman, ' man indeed I believe ho would have

fair, but his heart was in his work, ' peated aain on Thursday and again he

had won her for his own. "This state of things went on for a

that had distinguished her rival. From t at oce ttt crept aown tottie istciicnana

i fjarden he could not hear her at all; sc 5vc hc fell asleep,

co'nserratbryT "It" was all 'right forhiin
there so long as she continued to abuse
him; but every now,and,then, just as he
was getting comfortably settled down
with his pipe and his newspaper, she
would suddenly stop.
"He would drop his paper and sit
listening with a troubled, anxious ex
pression. " 'Are you there, dear?' he would call
out, after awhile.
" 'Yes, I'm here, where do you thinlj
I am, you old fool?' she would gasp
back, in an exhausted voice.
"His face would brighten at the
sound of her voice. "Go on, dear,' he
would answer; 'I'm listening. I like to
hear you talk.'
"But the poor woman was utterly
pumped out and had not so much as s
snort left
"Then he would shake his head sad
ly. No, she hasn't poor dear Susan's
flow of words,' he would bay. 'Ah,
what a woman that was!'
"At night she would do her best, bul
it was a lame and halting performance
by comparison. After rating him foi
little over three-quarters of an hour,
she would sink back upon the pillow
and want to go asleep, but he would
shako her gently by the shoulder.
" Yes,, dear,' he would say, 'yon
were Bpeaking about Jane, and the
way I kept looking at her during
lunch.'
"It's extraordinary," concluded mj
friend, lighting a fresh cigar, "what
creatures of habit we are."
. "Very," I replied. "I knew a man
who told tall stories till when he told a
true one nobody believed it"
"Ah, that was a very sad case," said
my friend.
"Speaking of habit," said the unob
trusive man in the corner, "I can tell
you a true story that I'll bet my bot
tom dollar you won't believe."
"Haven't got a bottom dollar, but I'll
bet you half a sovereign I do," replied
my friend, who was of a sporting turn.
"Who shall be judge?"
"Ill take your word for it " said the
unobtrusive man, and started straight
away.
'Ho was a Jefferson man, this man
Pm going to tell you of," he began.
"Ho was born in the town, and foi
forty-seven years ho never slept a
night outside it Ho was a most re
spectable man, a dry-salter from nine
to four, and a Presbyterian in his
leisure moments. He said that a good
life merely meant good habits. He
rose at seven, had family prayer at
half -past seven, breakfast at eight, got
to his business at nine, had his horse
brought around to the office at four
and rode for an hour, reaching home at
five, had a bath and a cup of tea, played
with and read to the children (ha was
a domesticated man) till half-past six,
dressed and dined at Keren, went round
to tho club and played whist till a quarter-past,
ten, home again to evening
prayer at half-past ten and bed at
eleven. For twenty-fiva years ho lived
that life with nevtr a variation. It
worked into his system and became me
chanical. Tho church clocks were set
by him. Ho was used by the local as
tronomers to check the sun.
"One day a distant connection of his
in London, an East Indian merchant
and an ex-lord mayor, died, leaving
him solo legatee and executor. The
business was a complicated one and
needed management, ne determined
to leave his son by his first wife, now
a young man of twenty-four, in charge
at Jefferson, and to establish himself
with his seeond family in England,
and look after the East Indian busi
ness. "He 6et out from Jefferson City on
October 4 and arrived in London on
tho 17th. Ho had been ill during tho
whole of the voyage, and reached the
furnished honse he had hired in Bay
water somewhat of a wreok. A couple
of days in Led, however, pulled him
round, and on tho Wednesday even
ing ho announced his intention of go
ing into tha city the next day to seo to
his affairs.
"On Thursday he did not wake till
one in the afternoon, nis wife said
that she had not disturbed him, think
ing the sleep would do him good. He
admitted that perhaps ii had. Any
how, he felt very well and got up and
dressed himself. Ue did not liko the
idea of beginning his flrut day by neg
lecting a religious duty and, his wife
agreeing with him, they assembled the
servants and the children in tho dining-room
and had family prayers aft
half-past one. After which ho break
fasted and set off, reaching tho city
about three.
His reputation for punctuality had
preceded him, and surprise was every
where expressed at his late arrival. He
explained the circumstances, however,
and made his appointments for the fol
low iug day, to commence from 9:00.
"Ho remained at his office until late
and then went home. For dinner
usually his chief meal of the day he
coald manage to eat only a biscuit and
some truit lie attributed ins loss of
appetite to want of bis customary ride.
He was strangely unsettled all the
evening. He said he supposed lie
missed his game of whist and deter
mined to look out for some quiet, re
spectable club without loss of time. At
11 he retired with his wife to bed, but
could not sleep. He tossed and turned
and turned aud tossed, but grew only
more wakeful and energetic. A little
after midnight an overpowering desire
seized him to po and wish the children
good-night He slipped on a dressing
fown und stole into the nursery. He
did not intend it, but the opening of
the door awoke them, and he was glad.
He wrapped them up in a quilt, and,
sitting ou the edge of the bed, told
tlim moral stories till one o'clock.
"Then he kissed them good night.
bidding them be good and go to sleep,
and, feeling painfully hungry, crept
downstairs, whero he made a hearty
meal oil cold beefsteak pie and cucum
ber in tha back kitchen.
"He returned to bed, feeling more
peaceful, yet still could not sleep; so
lay thinking about his business affairs
till five, when he dropped off.
"At one o'clock to the minute he
body could "understand it The doctor
treated him for water on the brain,
hypnotic irresponsibility and heredit
ary lunacy. Meanwliile his business
suffered and his health grew worse.
He seemed to be living upside down.
His days seemed to have neither begin
ning nor end, but to be all middle.
There was no time for exercise or
recreation. When he began to feel
cheerful and sociable everybody was
asleep.
"One day, by chance, the explana
tion came. His elder daughter was
preparing her home studies after dinner,
THET TAUGHT HTU POKES.
" What time Is it now in New York"?
6he asked, looking up from her ge
ography book.
" 'New York,' said the father, glanc
ing at his watch; 'let me see. It's justl
ten now, and there's a little over four'
and a half hours' difference. Oh, about
5:30 in the af ternoonl'
" Then in Jefferson, said the moth
er, 'it would be still earlier, wouldn't
it?'
" 'Yes,' replied the girl, examining
the map, 'Jefferson is nearly two de
grees further west'
" 'Two degrees,' mused the father;
'and there's forty minutes to a degree.
That would make it now, at the pres
ent moment, in Jefferson '
"He leaped to his feet with a cry:
" 'I've got it,' he shouted; 'I see it'
" 'See what?' asked his wife, alarmed.
" 'Why, it's four o'clock in Jefferson,
and just time for my ride.
That's
what I'm wanting.'
"There could be no doubt about it
For twenty-five years he had lived by
clock-work. He had changed his longi
tude, but not himself. Tbe habits of a
quarter of a cenutry wero not to bo
shifted at the bidding of the sun.
"He examined tho problem in all its
bearings, and decided that the only
solution was for him to return to the
ordor of hia old life. He saw the dif
ficulties in his way, but they were less
than those he was at present encounter
ing. He was too formed by habit to
adapt himself to circumstances. Cir
cumstances must adapt themselves to
him.
"He fixed his office hours from three
till ten, leaving himself at 0:80. At ten
ho mounted his horse and went for a
canter in the Row, and on very dark
nights he carried a lantern. News of
it got abroad nnd crowds would assem
ble to see him ride past
"He dined at ono o'clock in the morn
ing and afterwards strolled down to
his club. Ho tried to discover a quiot,
respectable club where the members
w era willing to play whist till four in
the morning, but failing had been com
pelled to join a small Soho gambling
hell where they taught him poker. The
place was occasionally raided by tho
police, but, thanks to his respectable
appearance, ho generally managed to
escape.
"At 4:30 he returned home and woko
the family up for evening prayers. At
five he went to bed and slept like a
top.
"Tho olty ohoffed him and Bays
water shook its bead over him, but that
lie did not mind. The only thing that
really troubled him was loss of spirit
ual communion. At five o'clock on
Sunday afternoons ho felt ho wanted
chapel but had to do without it At
seven he ate his simple midday meal.
Eleven ho had tea and muillns, and at
midnight he began to crave again for
hymns and sermons. At three he had
a bread and cheeo supper and retired
early at four a. in., feeling sad and un
sati&fid. "He was essentially a man of habit'
The unobtrusive stranger ceased, and
we sat gazing in silence at the ceiling.
