"Would jou say that our friend Nellie

An F.nrlj Experience That a Crime Itecnllcd
tu New York rhysiclnn.
" It's a queer world," said a New York physi
cian as ho laid tho morning paper aside.
"What prompted that original remark?"
asked a visitor.
"Well. I was just reading an account of a
stabbing affair, and It Huddenly occurred to mo
thatlhad known the man who did the kill
ing." The doctor settled back in his chair and
drummed on the tablo with his Angora, and the
visitor ate his omeletto and waited for tho
story. Aftor a fow moments It camo.
"When I first began to practice I dldanlm
menso amount of charity work. Kvery fellow
does that at tho start for experience, and later
ho koepa It up for humanity's snko I had
pretty good success with children and made
auito a namo down In the tenement districts
and incidentally spent most ot my pocket
money on my patients. That was before the
day of free strillzed milk for sick bibios and
dozens of institutions for the relief of tha poor.
" Ono summer n woman began bringing a
sick baby to mo. A small boy, about X yoars
old, always camo with them, and seemed to be
fairly strong and well, but tho baby was a piti
ful littlo thing with a thin, white faco and big
bluo eyes with a look of pain In them The
woman seemed an Ignorant, honest soul, and
gonorally woro a thick dark v oil to hide a Mack
eja or great bluo bruises. It's easy enough te
figure out a thing llko that, jou know, but sho
neverspoko of hor husband or complained, so I
didn't ask any questions. She brought the
baby often, nnd eachtlme Itlooken more waxen
and sorawny, but I couldn't find out th.it the
child had any disease and all tho symptoms
pointsd to ft lack of nourishment At list,
one morning I said to the mother that
I believed tho baby was starving, and
that I didn't Intead tn allow hor to
leave the offlee until she had told me the truth
about the affair. Sho looked stubborn for a
moment and wouldn't ansiveF. hut then tho
tears bsgan to roll down her brulced. dlteol
oredchaeks. and she caufessd that she didn't
havo enough food to give the babj She worked
h-vrd, but her husband drank and took every
cent sho made, and beat her every day Into tho
bargain. Bho was fond of the brute in spite of
all that, and told me a long story about the
heavenly nature Hie fellow had before ho began
to drink so hard I told hor shit ought to go to
court and complain of him: but she wouldn't
listen to that nnd abused me roundly for ad
vising a wife to turn against hor man
" Finally I told hor I would givn her a quart
of milk every day I wouldn't glio her tho
money because I didn't covet the privilege of
buying bad whiskey for the husband; but I
would pay the nearest milk depot to uupplj her
with a quart aday That would feed the habr
and loavo a little for little Joe. who didn't look
quite so well as he did when the two first began
falling on me. After that I didn't hear any
mora about thooaseforavisek or two Thin
my friends turned upagatn 1 ho baby looked
worse than evtr. and tho woman's face was a
patchwork In bluo and green : but littlo Joe
was qulto rosy. I didn't understand. The
baby was In a bad condition, and 1 did what I
could for It. After I left my office I went down
to the milk depot The man said my womnn
had had her quart of milk everyday
"I puxzlod over the thing that night. The
noxt morning the trio were at myolllce Thp
baby's blue ej-ollds were closed, and I tbought
at first that It was not breathing, but fonnda
faint flutter. I couldn't see any reason for
such a state of things, so, once moro, I led the
woman into my private ofDco and shut tho
dbor. Then I said:
"'Now, look hero I There's a mystery about
this, and you'vu got to tell me what's tile mat
tr That baby's starving to death, and I want
to know what you've done with the milk.'
"Tho woman looked scared and turned palo
botween bruises. Then she cave a sort of wail
and jumped up. still holding tho baby.
"'No, the bahy didn't have the mllk sho
said In a frantic sort of way. 'I gave It to littlo
Joe. There wasn't enough to feed them both
and Joo betnn to get sick, nnd I loved him let
ter than I did the hahy I ain't had a crust to
cat mjself. but I couldn't let .Toe die. Tho
baby's only a girl, and If she does llvo she'll b
unhappy llko roe, and I don't lov her like I do
Joe I thought boro of them wire going to die,
and I couldnt live without Joe. bo 1 gave him
the milk, and just let tho baby havo a little.
May be -ou think I ain't suffered watching the
liaby, but I couldn't sparo Joe I coirldn't.
Homo day he'll be a man. and I'll be proud of
him A man enn do anything, hut a girl would
just do what I've done. Joe shan't die '
"Hhe was screaming the words out and
seemed nlmost crazy The thing was awful : it
made mo feel heiitslek,
'"Why, you idiot,' I paid. 'Why didn't you
tell me? Id have looked out for Joe, too '
"Just then the baby opened Its ojes great,
unranny. weird ejes In the tlnj fai It nt ired
at me Inn inli-orable way that inmle my heart
come Into my throat Then nil the light died
out of the eych, but the) ntdl htarf d

the mother fine snt.down and looked at the
baby in a quiet, stunmd wa-j 'then sho
naehod out and put one urm aiotiud little Joo
and hi !d him tlftht. I mM her I would keep on
paying for the milk as long as sh'1 wanted It,
and she and Joe nni' the liM) in-lit homo

These nro busy days for tho dlspensartcs and

neighborhoods and among the well-to-do. doc
tors are kept busy with the littlo ones. And
yet. In aptta of tha hent. thoro Is littlo oxcuso
for the prevailing sickness, according to ono
physician.
"Fully scven-tctithsof the Illness anions ba
bies Is directly duo to the Ignorance, 1n7lnesa
or Incompetency of tho mothers." said a physi
cian who hns gained vvldo reputation for his
HUceess In tho treatment of babies' diseases
and whoso practice covers tho worutof tho ten

tho moittilltj nmongehlldrenls not even gtvnt

of babies of forty jenrs ago are enough to make
01104 hair stand on end. and the worst nf
it Is, thettaditlons stick bo lightly that It is
very difficult to uproot them Tho mothers
among Hie poorer class nro too Ignorant to

tamest, nnd roidy to assist a physician: but
tho grandmothers nnd maiden stints, with tho
best Intentions in the world, play havoc with
the babies.
" Now right hero I want to say ono thing, nnd
Bay It strongly. There's an awful amount of
nonsmso talked about the carelessness and
Irresponsibility of fashionable mothers, nnd
about tho higher education of woman lending
to neglect of children. Peoplo assert thttt the
most devoted and self-sacrlflclng mothers nro
found In tho common walks of life. I saythnt
Is nbsoluto rot I'v 0 had experience with thou
sands nnd t homands of mothers of all sorts and
conditions, and I'vn found that the better edu
cated tho woman Is tho better mother sho
makes. Our college girls havo clear, logical
minds Thoy know something of physiology
and lihyslcs and ltrgleno. "i hen I explain to
ono of them the vital Importance of a
certain projiortlon of fat and BUgnr In
a babj's food or tho danger of slight
mistakes In diet or In tho caro of a
baby fho understands exactly what I mean,
feels tho responsibllltj-. and follows my direc

dulges tho child, neglects my directions, nnd
prol nbly fibs tome when I tax hor with having
dlsohoj-ed orders As for odcty women, I do
not find that they neglect the babies They
don't h.ivc them in their arms nil the time and
ure not perpetually feeding them, but that's
luckj for tho babies I know dozens of wealthy
mothers in this city, lenders in society, women
whose cheeks are good for thousands, some
times r millions, who spend hours evoryday
preparing their bablnV food, and will not allow
anj one elo to attend to the bottles, bcauso I
havo convinced them that one cannot rely upon

"Slothur devotion Is seldom lacking, but
Ignornncc can do as much harm as deliberate

A Form of Ofllrlnl Extinction nf Incorpo
rated Commnnltlcs Peculiar tnNcivTork.
The New Y'ork Legislature exerelsed until
18-10, whon tho power was given to local Boards
ot Supervisors, tho double right of creating and
of abolishing towns. Origlnnlli the Legislature
moro actlv ely engaged Inert atlng thnn in doing
aw ay with law fully organized towns. Thero now
exist what aro known as " obsolete towns," or
ploccH which onei existed, but do so no lonser
officially, having been, as It vrere. wiped from
tho map In this particular New Y'ork is excep
tional. Itslistnf obsob'to towns ls very much
largor than Its list of Incorporated cities; and
somo of those towns which hnvo been dono
aw ay with ofllcially had a brief existence. The
same remark applies to tho "obsolete villages,"
very much fewer In number.
It was In Westchester county, for Instanco.
tho village of Sawplts flourished for fourteen
jearsand was thon snuffed out like a candlo.
Among the obsolete towns are thoso of Church
Track In Livingston eountj-, Bolona In Gono
seo. Halfmoon In Saratoga, China In Wyoming.
Bnell in Y'ates. Jericho In ChounuBO. West
Grove in Allegany, SuftraBe In Otsego. Hobo iu
Wjomlng. Erin In Erie. Bncktooth In Catta
raugus, Oak Orchard iu Orleans, Rico in Catta
raugus, and Caughnnwaga in Montgomery.
The theory of town goiernment whloh pro
vnils in New England, which In tho six Now
England States has been carried to what may
be called tho logical extremity of setting up a
boparato and independent township govern
ment, has never been recognized to a large ex
tent In New York. Township In New England
are regarded in philosophical phrase as" po
litUn! entities" or onlts ot repro&ontation. and
In several o the New England States, dosplte
changes in their Courtitutiona and statutes,
each town, however small, however meagre
and diminished Its population, and however
fnhlgnifloaut when compared with the large
Cities in the same btate, is inviolably entitled to
representation in the LcgislatHro Such a
town cannot be abolished. The political rights
ot lt residents cannot be taken from them and
their title to a separate political exlstenco Is
beyond the power of tho State to niter.
But in New Tork towns and village are
created by the lyogislnture. Originally where
a town was to be admitted, to bo incorporated
application to the Legislature was mado by
at least twelio freeholders affected by the
division, and a notlee of Intended applica
tion posted In at least flo public places
and published in the local papers. A
biirrej and map of tho town woro
made and filed In tho Secretary's ofllco. There
were elected by ballot in each town (not ex
cepted by statute), a hupervlsor. Town Clerk,
thren Assessors, a Collector, two Overseers of
tht Poor, ono or three Commissioners of High
ways, and four Jiihtioes of the Peace and Con
stables As many Pound Masters ns the elec
tors dternrined were chosen by a viva voce
vote of the electors One Oiereerof Highways
for encli road district, wieept In New York,
Long Island and Staten Itdand. was appointed
by the Commissioner of Hlghwajs. Assessors
ond Commissioners ot Hlghwavs were elected
for three jears. Justices for four joars, and
most of ths others for one year,
The div Islos between villages and townships
ess marked in Ksw York than in some States.

Bo much of tragical Importance In the coun
try's history Is going on just now that tho mere
annexation of somo Islands In tho Paolflo causes
only n rlpplo of satisfied comment In tho exolU
ins present, yet there are pooplo to bo discov
ered In the act ot rejoicing ovor tho annexation
of the Hawallans people who have been thero
and experienced tho delights of the country
for themselves. The woman who has beon
thoro ls especially delighted. Tho reason
for this? It Is vanity and gluttony.
Why, just tho other day a woman
who had visited Honolulu was beaming over
tho hope that Americans, too, might be ablo to
oatpol overy day have It bottled up and sont
to thorn cheap and that womon could buy
beautiful kimonos at tho same low price that
purchases them upon our Islands tn the Paolflo.
Bho was not at all a Brecdy looking woman,
and hor loxelluoss would load ono to bcllevo
that sho had a soul far nbovo pol. or lieyond
flnmliiBO-scattcrnd kimonos, for that matter.
Yet bIio looks pityingly upon jou as sho tells
you, whon jou romonstrato over hor material
ism, that you don't kuow the kind of iol or tho
kind of kimonos they have In Hawaii. She con
vinces jou about the kimonos, but you still ro
ciuln in doubt about tho pol,
"It ls delicious," sho snj s enthusiastically.
"And what is It mado ot?" asks a listener.
"Of tho roots of a plant resembling tho calls
Illy."
"That doesn't sound nice," saj-s tho listener.
"Oh. but It Is, though." oontlnuos tho en
thusiast "The natives make it: nre the natives clean?"
asks tho llstcnor, dubiously,
"Oh, not at all Thoro ure iiw ful stories about
tho way thej rub out the roots with their hoots.
Oh I don't be shocked, though. Nice peoplo nre
very particular about where they buy tholr pol.
It's llko the Yankee pie; ou muBt know tho
lady as mukos It "
" A footless lady from a dime museum would
bo safest," suggosts the scoffer.
" Y'os," with a look of Injured dignity. " You
have to know that very clean, honest, self-respecting
Christian natives make your pol In
order to lie suro It Is all right "
" Certalnlj'." says tho scoffer in a tone too
serious to be entirely sincere.
"Thero is bo much that Is plcturosque about
It." goes on the enthusiast. " The natives beat
It out on white stones by tho waterside, nnd
then, whon you drlvo through tho town In tho
afternoons, thero aro llttlo whlto flags flutter
ing from tho houses having freshly mado pol
for sale. After It is beaten out It ls boiled, and
on the first day It looks like a vory gummy
white pasto. It Is dreadfully stringy, and tho
natives eat it tho first day with tholr Index fln
Bers. That day It Is called ono-flnBor jk!; the
next day two Anson? havo to bo employed be
cause the mlxturo ls thinner, and thon It 1b
called two-finger pol. and tiio third day threo
flngerpoi. It Is decidedly lormentod aftor ths
first day, you know."
"And did you oat the horrid fermented
paste?" asks the listenor.
" Y'es, certainly I did. It was two-finger pot
tho evening I ato it at tho houso of somo Eng
lish friends It was served with the roast meat.
The family had a calabash that ls, a hlg bowl
and they all stuck their forks In it In tho most
friendly fashion, just as tho natlvos do who
happen to have forks. Tlioygavo mo a littlo
bowl, though, all to myself, and watohei) with
speculotrvo amusemontto see. first, K I could
manage It, and then If I would like it after
performing the difficult feat of getting It up to
my mouth You have to dip jour fork In deep
and work It round and round very dexterously,
just as If jou were winding a piece of thread,
or rather lots of uncv en. sticky nlocesof thread,
and then lift it oulckh to your mouth."
'Umph." said the listener. "I'd feel as if I
were sw allowing a skein of embroidery silk."
" Well It does seem a liwlo llko that" admit
ted ths onthusfast. like that all mixed with
paste: but tho stringj part scums so soft and
delicate, jou know, that It goos down In a kind
of piquant pungent long-drawn sweetness "
The listener shook tier unbelieving head.
"Tell me about the kimonos," she demanded.
In a tone of hopo.
" Well, all the women wear them or Mother
Ilubbards W 0 got our Mother Hubbard stylea
from Honolulu, jou know."
"And oil the mon wish we d left them there."
said the listenor.
"My dear." went on tho enthusiast, "whon
you have lived as long as I have you will have
discovered that most men object to things In
their own families that they woll, you know,
positively admire abroad "
" In Honolulu, for lastance ?"
"Y'es, In Honolulu, and Paris, and. ohl lots
of places W hy, I have seen gallant young Eng
lish ofllcers making sheepa' eyes at slris In
Mother Ilubbards ontthem "
"Well, perhaps tho Mother Hubbards were
different.''
Oh. no: tho glrla were. You soe, eorsete
and conventionality aro not appropriate In that
ollmate Children and women, youne an old,
wear Mother Hubliards walk, drive and mar
ket In them. They ore made ot exquisite, fine,
airy materials, and, while I can't say I got quite
used to them. I did think they looked cooland
pretty out there As for ths kimoaos, they
wore charming My hestoss herself wore one at
that dinner. The repast was served, by the
way. In an Inclosed portico, with its shutters
opened toward tho bay. nnd the kimono Itself
reflected the shifting shadosof the water, beinr
an azure garment with changing lights of rose,
violet ami gold. The loveliest kimono, though,
was worn by a Japaneso a real Jp
aneso lady, whose beauty and butter
fly daintiness mado you bcllevo la the
rhapsodies of Edwin Arnold and Lafcadlo
Hcarn. Hhe wns the dearest llttls doll of a
thing, and her klmona was of a fawn color, a
shado darker than her satiny skin. The gar
ment wns embroldored In pink and white
cherry blossoms, and such embroidery! We
simply never get It upon Japaneso fabrios over
hero. The sleeves and folded-over front of the
Rown were faced with white creoe. and a soft
ttle Inner kerchief of rose color was folded
about tho Ivory throat and a wld ruse-colored
sash was tied Into a big soft bow behind, jnst
as wo see thorn on thn fans. By tho way,
kimono is a Japanese and not an Hawaiian
word."
" fiow lovely 1" said tho listener.
"Yes, the garment was exquisite, and it
suited the littlo Ivory doll with her tiny taper
fingers covered with rings and hor hair and
losom gleaming with jewels When I say
gleaming with jewels' I don't mean," clano
lng down severely, at tho listeners hands,
that they were onr kind of jewels, great knob
by diamonds and things thnUeoin leerlngthclr

as she was. dear and modest as tier laughter."
"You arngrowlng Poetic." said tho listenor,
as sho put her glistening hands behind hor,
"Oh. one couldn't help going wild over tho
jewels of a Japanese woman, the doar llttlo
filmy butterflies, glowing with uncut gems;

Tho supper was laid on tho tablo trim.
When out comes, roaring, my young Bon, Jim,
"Ohldaddj. the ratsl A do?en nrtivo.
Are gobbling the supper, and baby, too "
My wlfo, with a scream, seized Iron and
broom.
I clutched a bottle, and made for tho room.
Never was heard such a hullabaloo!
It woke up the eat. and the torrlcr. too
The tferrlor thought wo were hunting tho ent.
Got a grip ot her tail, as nlie wont for tho rat.
Jim. with his hatchet, tumbled over a pall.
And tried to hold torrlor hick bj tho tall.
I caught Jim bv the wool, but rather too late
The tablo rocelved such a bump from his pato
That teapot, plates, lamp, chairs, babj and all.
Were upset on the floor, 'mid crash and
squall.
Tho pooplo about shouted " Mu rder 1" " Flro 1"
And tho nollco rnshod In tho causo to Inquire :
They'd lfston to nothing wo wnnted to stato. i ;
But to the noxt station luggod mo off '
straight. Jj
Sworn I was drunk nearly murdered my
wifo. j
And of my poor Infant endangered tho life. 4
Broken tables, chairs, and cj-ockery ware ; j J
Yl hen the Juatlco said. " What a savage old 85
bear." ffj
Not heodlngn word my poor wlfo did swear. lit
Imprisoned and fined, I cursed my sad fate. I
When latoly I learned, hut rathor too late.
Instead of depending on trnps, dogs or eats. ti.
My only protection was Ilouoit on Bats." J J!
