REPORT OF WORK
Secretary United Charities and H» I
mane Officer Was Busy With
Many Cases During
Month of May.
Work Is Made Possible ThrougK tR5
Kindness and Financial Co
operation of People
The monthly report of David A.
Glascoff, humane office^ andg general
secretary of &e United CharitieB, has
been prepared for the month of May.
It is interesting to note the work
which Mr. Glascoff has been doing for
the two associations, and his report
gives evidence of the need of the so
cieties and the good that is being
done here by them.
His report follows:
Naturally with the approach of
warm weather there ls^ a diminution
in the numbers of depdndent^ asking
material aid. This is In part due to
the fact that many of them possess
small plats of ground where they raise
a little garden truck and also to the
fact that there is more city work.
This cessation does not mean that the
work is at a standstill but rather that
there is a chance for a change. A
chance to do more preventive and
constructive work. We are now -turn
ing our attention to these phases and
hope to Inaugurate some features new
During the month of May there
were thirty families brought to our
attention from the following sources:
Private and Individuals, twenty ap
placants In their own behalf, ten Y.
W. C. A., two, and city and county
officers, two. This group of distress
ed humanity represented forty-nine
individuals over fourteen years of
age and twenty-three under that age.
Socially they were divided as follows:
Twelve married couples, four widow
ers, three widows, two divorced or
separated couples, four single men
residents, two single men transient,
and three single women.
Give Substantial Aid.
Through the hearty co-operation of
our friends we have been able to do
the adequate thing in a few Instances
as Indicated by the following: Twen
ty-seven meals were served to two
old women and sleeping accommoda
tions were furnished for eight nights.
Groceries were provided twenty-six
times, work once, rent paid once,
furniture moved once, transportation
secured twice, thirteen were -helped
to get along without public assistance
and five others were referred to oth
er organizations or officers. Our at
tention was directed to suffering an
imals in five instances and in four it
lay within our power to correct con
ditions, while in the fifth there was
no need of interference as there was
In order to do this work, ninety
four visits were made and the tele

Institutions, the county and several in

thus making possible the work ac
Nearly three years ago there was
employed In one of 'the great cotton
mills of Virginia-a young man about
twenty years of age. His health had
been gradually failing and there were
days when he could not work and oth
er days when he would not have gone
to the mill if it had not been that his
widowed mother needed his earnings.
Finally the time came when the fam
ily physician told him he would have
to change climate if he would live.
He had tuberculosis and went to
Denver, Colo., where for two years
he lived the lonesome life of all one
lungers who are neither blessed with
friends or an abundance of money.
Under these circumstances it is not
to be wondered at that he did not re
gain his health and six weeks ago the
city physician told him he had better
start home if he wished to reach there
alive. Selling a trunk and a suit of
clothes, he paid his way to Omaha,
Neb., here he disposed of more of his
belongingB and paid his way to Des
Moines, Iowa. At the latter place he
had the good fortune to become ac
quainted with a stock buyer who gave

him a pass permitting him to ride on
a freight train to Burlington. At this
place he disposed of the remainder of
his personal effects and purchased a
ticket here. He was now striving to
reach a sister in St. Louis instead of
going home. His sister could give
him a home and so he waB sent on
his way rejoicing, for he was going
straight to her. This waB made pos
sible by the kindness of the captain
of the steamboat W. W. and two
friends who contributed money enough
to buy a ticket from Quincy to St.
Army Officer's Widow.
The widow of a Wisconsin attorney
who during the civil war Berved iis
country first as a captain and later
as a brevet, major, was sent to our
offlce with the hope that we might be
able to do something for for her. Her
story was a sad one, since her hus
band's death, and the loss of consid
erable property. She and her son,
who was supposed to be making a
living for the two as an itinerant
painter and decorator, had traveled
mucfi and lived a hand-to-mouth ex
istence in spite of the fact -that she
drew a pension. He could do a pret
ty fair job of decorating or (painting
a set of scenes for an opera house
but like many of his kind, was over
fond of his cups. An Injury to one
of his eyes and the idea that the only
place where it could be properly cared
for was Chicago, his home, caused
him to borrow all the money his moth
er had, thus leaving her stranded and
to the mercy of the public. After
satisfying ourselves that she should
really be in Chicago, we were able to
raise money enough to pay for her
ticket and give her a little money, BO
she would not reach her destination
Seeks Missing Husband.
Stranded and with no chance of

Bent her to us, asking that we take
care of her if possible. We found her
to be alone so far as relatives who
could or should take care of her were
concerned, and greatly in need of
help for the next month. We under
took her care and are providing
rooms, provisions and other necessit
ies of life. All this 's costing money
and the carrying out of our plan has
been made possible through the co
operation of churches, societies and In
dividuals. When she is able to travel,
the mother and her children will re
turn to a relative who can give her
a home, but nothing more.

To Keep Skin in Fine

It would he much better for the

Mixed with perspiration, dust and
grime, these things are anything but
beautifying. Ordinary mercollzed wax
will do more for the complexion, and
without giving an oily, streaked, spot

ideal application for the season, as It
not only keeps the pores clean, but
daily removes particles of scarf skin
which have been soiled by dirt or
weather. 3y constantly keeping the
completion clear, white, satiny, it
does more toward perpetuating a
youthful countenance than any of the
arts or artifices commonly employed.
One ounoe of mercollzed wax, obtain
able at any drugstore, will completely
renovate the worst complexion. It is
applied at night like cold cream and

Burlington Hawk-Bye: The city
conncil met In,regular session yester
day at 9:00 a. m., with all members
present. Councilman Wiesley return
ed home Wednesday evening. The
council was also favored with the
presence of a distinguished visitor,
Mr. R. O. Marsh, of Warsaw, 111.
Mr. Marsh is the man who Is pro
moting a new bridge and says he will
bring a new railroad Into Burlington.
He appeared before the city council
to explain the situation and his plans,
and also to Insure the city council that
his project 1b not dead, but is as alive
as ever. Matters have been moving
slower than he had hoped for, but he
believed the situation was Buch that
they could soon proceed with the
work without delay.
The company, he said. Is at present
working a big force of men between
Quincy and Warsaw, and expect '.o
reach the latter town by August 1.
From there they will work toward Ft.
Madison, reaching that point by De
cember. From there they go to Niota,
and from Niota to Burlington. No
rails nor ties have been laid as yet,
but It is expected to begin this work
the latter part of August or Septem
ber. In the building of the new bridge
at this point, he desires the coopera
tion of the city, and he was positive
this new bridge would surely be of
material Interest to the merchants and
citizens of Burlington. He estimated
that a bridge could be built across the
Mississippi at a cost of about 1600,
Mr. Marsh Is still a young man and
is quite enthusiastic over his scheme,
and while it iB working a little slower
than he hacf hoped for, he predicts
and sees only'success.
