SPEAK OF THE PATHOS OF THE LIT
TLE CRIPPLE'S LIFE.
X large number of men and women well known
to society and Interested In philanthropic work
gathered yesterday at the annual meeting of tbe
New-York Orthopedic Dispensary and Hospital.
No. US East Fifty-ninth-st.. which was founded
thirty-three years ago by a few young men, among
whom ¦were Theodore Roosevelt, sr.. and Howard
Potter, brother of Bishop Potter.
The Is MB was cpen for Inspection, from. 3 until 6
o'clock, and many visited the different rooms and the
•workshops In which the apparatus Is made, showing
great Interest. At 4p. m. all assembled In the large
consulting rooms to hear the reports. The presl
dent,: O. ; Egerton :.rr.'..:-. . in his opening address
referred with deep feeling to the death In the last
year of three valued members of the Boar:. Dr.
Edward A- Smith. H. "Welter Webb and Buchanan
"Wlnthfop, the last an honorary member.
The entire expenses .-: the year Just- passed -were
SMja. and the total Income J29.196. The president
called attention to the discrepancy, and urged the
claims of the hospital upon the benevolent, saying:
"To be poor Is sad enough, but to be a poor and
crippled child is heartrending."
Miss E. 8. Hamilton, secretary of the Board of
Supervisors, road her report of the admirable work
dene by the Board in supplementing the surgical
aid rendered with moral and educational assist
ance and needful diversion. She called attention
to the otttvtstttng work, for which the salary Is
paid by a member of the Board. Mrs. Whltelaw
Reid, as home; one of the most Important features
of the charity. The duties of this nurse are
to visit discharged patients at their homes and
ass that the prescribed treatment Is carried on. In
this way assuring many cures with which the
Ignorance or neglect of parents would have in
terfered. Several friends contributed summer
- -n<-s to patients.
The curgeon-In-ch!ef, Russell A. Hlbbs. reported '
treatment of 244 patients In the year, of whom
£75 were discharged cured and 417 greatly improved.
Seventeen thousand nine hundred and two days'
--» was given to free patients in the hospital. Dr.
Hlbls cpoke cf the need of a home in the country
'<•- tuberculosis caaes, saying that euch a home
trouia tend to more rapid cure.
The president then introduced Bishop Potter as
one -whose presence always brought sunshine. The
P --,-. began In a jesting manner by saying that
Lord P— const! rid once was asked what he would
do to Interest a man in conversation who showed
¦o Interest in him. "Beaconsfleld answered: 'I
should say. "How Is the old complaint That al
ways ¦ Interests people, and they can talk In
definitely on that subject. 'I think that I have
a more personal Interest In this institution than.
Perhaps, any other here. Many years ago I was
hi the Tosemlte. and my horse fell on me. Last
year a doctor of my acquaintance looked at the in
jured ankle with the X-ray and told me that two
of the bones had never knit." Then, turning to ex-
Governor Roosevelt, be added: "I think that even
the Governor, after his Ban Juan, will admit that
I deserve some credit for doing my duty for
twenty-five years with a broken leg!"
In more serious vein be spoke of the work of
the hospital and the relation of the individual con
tributor. "Tour duty is not discharged by giving
of your means and coming here on anniversary
days." he added. "You must give the touch of
Tour band, the sympathy of our presence. The
danger of modern life is ovecinstltutlons. How
over mean the home, the child taken to the hos
pital loses something that the hospital cannot give,
unless you are mother and sister to It, bringing
your heart to Its help."
Ex-Governor Roosevelt was the next speaker, ,
•ad was Introduced as the son of one of the found- i
«•*- He said: "I notice that I wan not introduced
*s my friend, the Bishop, was, as 'one whose
presence always brings sunshine to every one/ "
Some of his earliest recollections, he said, were of
hearing bis father and Bishop Potter's brother
«alk over the affairs of the Orthopedic DjsjMsMnr.
All of us feel the Infinite pathos of a chlld'a suf
rering, and realise as peculiarly cruel tbe suffering

said Colonel Roosevelt, adding, emphatically: "I
Would think mighty poorly of the man or woman
who la not touched by such a spectacle, but I
con t care a rap for the sympathy that does not
take a practical form. I have no respect for the

A DISCUSSION HELD AT A MEETING OF THE
LEAGUE OF UNITARIAN WOMEN.
A speech on "Points of Contact between Judaism
and Christianity" by Mrs. Frederick Nathan was
the feature of the day at the meeting of the New-
York League of Unitarian Women In All Souls'
Unitarian Church yesterday. The Jewish religion,
pure and simple, is the oldest of all religions, said
Mrs. Nathan. She quoted Dr. McGlffen. of this
city, who asserted that "Christianity, as the. old
Apostles believed it, was Judasim and nothing
more." She described some of the ancient Jewish
customs, which vary only slightly from many now
In use in Christian churches. The charity and love
taught by both Jews and Christians, she declared.
is the basis of both religions. She deplored the
fact that the spirit of Christ's teaching la not
more universal after nineteen hundred years, and
that the peace which He proclaimed seemed yet
so far away.

QUEEN WIMIRI^MIN.vs WEDDING GOWN IS
CLOTH OF SILVER, EXQUISITELY
The rumor that Queen Wllhelmina's marriage to
Duke Henry may not take place after all would
consign to at least temporary retirement one of
the most magnificent wedding gowns on record.
The wonderful embroidery that Is to be used lav
ishly la being executed In the Royal School of Art
Needlework, In conjunction with the Rljks Museum
at Amsterdam. This institution Is directed by Mme.
Van Emstede Wlnkler. who Is a practical worker
herself. She has selected her eight or nine most
highly skilled students, one of whom, Mrs. Tue
Laer. is an American by birth, and for some weeks
past they have all b*-«n continuously employed upon
their royal task. The entire dress Is to be of cloth
of silver, so exquisitely supple and fine In texture
that it suggests those Indian muslins which "could
be pulled through a ring." It has been specially
woven, and. naturally, at great cost, and will be
made up over the richest white glace silk. Tho
whole front of the jupe will be worked In a tapering
de-l*n. harmonizing with the train, broad at tho
hern and narrowing toward the v. .r. ; Th, f.;;
court train of two and a half metres on the ground
falls from the waist, and Is surrounded by two
Jroad bands of the embroidery. The general Idea
or this is detached sprays of orange blossoms and
their foliage connected In artistic style by scrolls
and ribbons. Each one of the clusters of the flowers
has & single fully opened bloom, and Is surrounded
by buds more or less developed. Fine seed pearls
are being used for these, while the foUage Is Indi
cated by sliver threads and paillettes. In addition
to tbe pearls and paillettes no fewer than six kinds
of silver bullion twist are employed to produce the
different effects required, and most of the Inter
lacing ribbon suggested Is highly raised, or. In
technical t->rm. "couched." The embroidery is
worked upon the silver tissue and the white silk
foundation as well, thus Imparting to It richness as
well as firmness. No work Is to appear upon the
bodice, which, according to Dutch custom for a
State wedding, will be cut low. It is to be draped
with Brussels lace, of which the Queen possesses
an extremely valuable collection, both of antique
.-md modern examples, and the veil will be of the
hamo lov. .v .., .-
The robe of State prepared for the reception to be
held by tbe Queen at the conclusion of the honey
moon is of equal magnificence, being of the richest
white velvet, with a court train lined and bordered
¦with the choicest ermine. En suite Is a cloak of
white velvet and ermine, and It is said that all the
great fur BAarfceta of the world have been searched
for the finest skins.

A (ALL FOR VOLUNTEERS.
PRACTICAL WORKERS ASKED TO ASSIST
THE LEAGUE FOR POLITICAL
Volunteer workers are loudly called f r by th*
League for Political Education, and as the easaa is
one in which there is a large and general Interest
the league is hopeful of obtaining many. Robert E.
Ely. one of the managers of the work, said yester
day at the league rooms. No. 23 West Forty-fourth
st., that the organization does not attempt so much
to introduce new methods as to make those already
existing more effective.
"We have no political axe to grind, no special
party to serve. The aim of the league is so to edu
cate the less fortunate that they will be fitted for
"There is room for a vast number of workers in
the city and so many lines of carefully systema
tized work that every one may choose the line she
prefers. We use the Senate districts as a basis,
making a map of each district, on which Is indi
cated all existing agencies for good and evil. Every
school, church, college or other neighborhood set
tlement and library, every saloon and low club, are
on the map. so that one can see at a glance what
needs to be done and what efforts are being made
to do it.
"We put the volunteers into relations with kinder
gartens or settlement work, or establish classes for
lectures on civics and kindred topics. Last year we
had a staff of twenty-live ready to give occasional
talks on social and political subjects.
"One of the important features of this branch
of our work is that we bring the various agencies
for improvement In harmonious relationship. Half
Of the workers have not known of the work of the
other half heretofore, and co-operation leads to a
vast increase in effectiveness. Then, we invite the
Alderman of the ward or the Assemblyman of the
district to visit the organization, and see Its work
and the necessity for it.
"Some of the details might be of interest. For
Instance, at the Nurses' Settlement. No. 255 Henry
st., last year, a class of about thirty boys between
the ages of fifteen and eighteen met twice a
month for the study of civics. The members of the
class were regular In their attendance, and showed
an inspiring interest in the subjects discussed.
This class will be resumed.
"On one evening a week a class of about forty
young men and women— school teachers, students,
clerks and mechanics— studied eccnomics at the
Young Man's Benevolent Association. East Broad
way and Grand-st.. and the samo lecturer took
some young men through a more advanced course
at the Students' Club, No. 129 Leyington-ave.
"At the Bible House a series of lectures was
given to a group of men on sociological subjects, a
short course on 'Citizenship' to a boys' club In
East Forty -slxth-st., and a course on 'Civic Affairs'
to a men's club at the Greenpclnt Settlement.
"At the King's Daughters' Settlement, No. 43
Henry-6t.. the Home Makers' Club had monthly
talks from Miss Georgle Gordon, on 'Woman's
Part In Civic Life.' at which there was an average
attendance of thirty, and a keen Interest shown
in the meetings, and In the friendly chats which
"It Is hoped that these classes also may be re
vived this season. But these are only a few of the
many avenues for usefulneas by volunteers. In
the district bounded by Fifteenth and Third sts.
and Thlrd-ave. and Hudson-st multitudes of young
men and women are employed In the many shops
ana the need of inculcating In them the habtt of
thrift is great. This region comprises a large part
of the old village of Greenwich, and In it are
wretched houses hidden behind respectable street
fronts. There are rear tenements in back courts
which are sometimes closed so lha* access from
the street must be through the halls of the houses
In front. Model tenements are greatly needed,
especially for negroes, who are compelled to pay
exorbitant rents for rooms In rear tenements, and
whose children are constantly subjected to evil
Miss Adele M. Fielde or Robert E. Ely will be
at the league rooms every day from 10 to 11 a. m.. to
meet all who desire to enroll themselves In any
line of work.

the foot may be straightened so that she can wear
a shoe and stocking. She is one of seven, and her
parents are poor and have a struggle to get along.
I am doing what I can to lessen the expense of the
operation, and reading of the quantities of articles
received by you which would amuse a child. I
thought that perhaps there might be something
left for poor little Sarah. She will have to He In
