That mystrrloiis virtue which lies concealed In a pile of clean simd. lurks about the eaves of a play? house and twines Itself Into the rolls of a rope swing I? one of those things which defies analysis, yet no one can deny Its existence or Its power over Childhood. It baa only lately been forced Into gen? eral notice In the recent iigltatlou of the question of public pinks and playgrounds for the children of the streets, but philanthropic individuals and societies long ago tried the same means for lessen? ing the woa-s of forlorn little waifs. The virtues ,,f the sand pile were discovered as far beck ns some twenty years by the physi? cians of the Xew-York Hospital and Infirmary for Women These doctors were among the first to establish free play yards for the poor children of the neighborhood. Though the s.-heme has been given up by them, the back yard of the hospital being only large enough for the children of the Institution, their good example has been followed successfully by many others. "Perhaps the largest public playground in the city Is the one In W.-sl Tblriy-sevenlh-st. which was I founded by Miss Grace Dodge, it covers severa! acres and has grounds for baseball and other out? door gnm?-s. It Is open to all children, a klnder gar'.-n teacher being In charge throughout the day, i and, needless to sny, It Is a godsend to that quar? ter Of th- city. Testent?) was a trying day for the children ?le? pen !> m upon these playgrounds for amusement. The foul sir of the tenement-house? is worse than usual on ? warm, rainy ?lay, and It Is next to Im? possible to ke.p the small incorrigibles Indoors. A r.porti-r from The Tribute ?topped at the Nurse?' Settlement, at No, j'? rlenry-st., yesterday to look Bl th.? playground which is kept through? out the summer In connection with nn open-air kindergarten. Several little lots, boya and girls. ?ere busy at work pulling up weed? so small that they must have sprung Up since morning In (he Bower-.la "Th. -v make :ny exCUl ? to ' onu." said one of the teachers, after telling then to run borne and seep out of the rain. "I! almost takes one person's tisse i . -.-nd them away on rainy days. They are enthusiastic aboui Ihe kindergarten, too, which is hardly more thin play. COnsiStfRR only of outdoor exercises I often hm.ro children as far away as ' II..na.n, it stop m?- at,,I ask me to ;?*t them come 10 th'- Bcuppln' -cbool.' as they call it." This playground is .of the most sttractlre In the city, tliouci small.

I'nder ? bright colored awning is ? sand pile, big enough and white enough to delight Ihe heart of ?he Fairy Queen of Siuidtown. Around the yard Is ., border of Bowers, snd the high well Is almost covered with vin??, carefully trained by loving little bands. A chief delight of the children Is to care for these Bowers, snd not a single weed la permitted to thrive In the ?acred flower-bed?, Sev.-ra. toy? for the ground have been donated by the neighbors, who are greatly Interested in it, ami by lbs boys' dubs, th?- siembera of which haw? access In II,.- evenings, A great feature'of Hi.- place Is ihe pigeon-house and birds, which af toid no end oi amusement. "It's h double-aiecker, snd Ihe birds are lots of fun; but they're gone in now .nit of ihe rain," a-x plaiiie.l one small urchin. When this playground was first established i' was open to all children, but as it came lo be known the children flocked there in su.-h crowds that It was soot. Impossible fcn- them to ptsy to? gether. They would come by the hundreds an I aland outside on the ?treet? begging to be admit? ted This sensor, It was found necessary to make some restrictions, in ihe morning it is given up to the kindergarten, which number? about sixty. The afternoons are reserved for the mothers with their little ones, and ttie? evenings ate monopolize,I by the working girls and the boys' clubs. So It's blessings are no! by any means limited to the children. Un Saturday afternoons a larger num? ber than usuai ?re admitted, snd entertainment? are frequently glv?-n. which are attended by sev? eral hundred children. The Fourth of July celebration lasted four even? ings, the guests of every evening being different.

Strlckeji ?it the age of forty-five with what was at that tlm?* BSPPSaad IS be Bh Incurable disenso, she was confined to her bed for nearly forty years before the Path, r callad her home-. She was also a suffert-r for many years from elys-x-psla, the re? sult of the change from aetlve life to the bed. No word of complaint ever passeel her lips. In Btosd of repining, she busb-el her mind with plans to help others. 8he llv?rd with her daughter anil husband, who were proprietors of a boarding school not far from New-York City, and there must be many of the quonelam punlls of that school In that vicinity who wll remember "Grandma Bullard." Her room was always the preferred sitting-room for the family, and her many callers never left It without feeling that It was good for them to have been there. Whenever able her fingers were busy piecing ?pillts, knitting, making and mending for those whose hands were "o'er fud." With her slender means she would send and buy good books to se'.l to those who would buy from her that she might he enabled to give to those who could not buy, Htid many a one can date a change of life from a good book and a good word from her kind thought Her chief thought always was, what could she do for some one else. She marie her Influence felt In many ways, although she never left her bed or room except on rare occa? sion?, when ?he was carefully carrier! The lu?t years of her life were rendered still more painful by a cancer, which was borne with the same sweet resignation which accepted all from her Father, whose reward she knew was sure.
