YEARS AGO 1 From the ran of Ibo Doily Telegram. Preparations were being made for i special session of United Statos ?lrcult court with Judge Nathan Ooff in the bench to try the Daltlmore ind Ohio and the Grafton and Be ington railroad companies for al eged discrimination in the dlslri >ution of coal cars. Harry Bland, of Salem, brought lere as a suspected lunatic, had ty phoid fever in the county jail. R. M. Hite, of Fairmont, pur chased 116 acres of coal near Co umbla mines from John K. Stout or $23,200. Lee L. Malone. of Fairmont, gen | ?ral manager of the Fairmont Coal i Company, left for the Northwest to j nspect, with other officials of the \ :orapany, holdings of the Northwest jrn Fuel Company. Governor VV. M. O. Dawson was ixuxtounced for an address at the rsourt house here on the new state ; :ax laws. J. Plnkus. chairman of the execu tive committee of the National Lit srary Society for the Blind, received word In this city that George C. 3turgiss, of Morgantown, had do nated a fifteen acre tract at Morgan town for the establishment of a na | tional free circulating library for the j blind. A bold burglary took place at Tin Plate. Two unidentified men enter ed a house occupied by Greeks and stole three watches and a pistol. When policemen reached the scene the burglars were not there. Charles P. Dallas resigned his po rtion at the Traders hotel bar pre paratory to going to Parkersburg, where lie hud purchased a half in terest In the Phoenix Cafe. A kick was made because the city crematory was being operated only one day a week and fears were en tertained for the health of the com munity. Mr. and Mrs. Gale Ebert, of Par kersburg. were visiting the former's j aunt, Mrs. C. J. Lang. A. O. Ashburn, of West Union, | was in the city looking after his cam paign for state senator. He was the . Republican nominee. Report was declared to he untrue (that the Syrian lepor who died at ! Pickens did not have a "decent" burial. Men sent from Elkins buried the remains, putting a barrel of lime below th" coffin box. another in the box containing the rolfin and still an I other barrel of lime above the box. CHARITY IS LOVE IN THESE DAYS ome Lofty Expressions by Lo cal Minister Who Discusses Associated Charities. (By the Rev. J. M. Allsup.) The word "charity" in our modern rnes hns been changed into thnt ofter and more kindly word, "love." et, when the average individual speaks of the relief extended to the destitute, the bereaved and the needy, that old. harsh word, "char ty," finds a ready issuance from the lips, and with Its utterance, the sub ject of the relief is dismissed, and the whole matter forgotten until an other arises to again bring it to re-| meinbrance. While God's Word tells us that "it j is more blessed to give than to re ceive," yet the cold extension of financial aid, with little or no thought given to the Individual receiving it, is sometimes actually numbing to the sensibilities of the recipient; and the oue extending aid in this heartless maimer will find very little blessing accruing to himself by reason of such "charity" thoughtlessly given. Stingy Han in Church. In this connection. I am reminded of the stingy man In church, who, when the collection plate was passed, j P'aced upon it what he though to be j a penny, but immediately he dls-1 covered it was a *5 gold piece. Call-! ing back the usher, he explained his! Patsy Belottl 106 W. Pike street. CABINET MAKER Artistic Wood Curving ALL HANDWORK Antique Furniture Repaired. Period Furniture Reproduced. B mistake, when the latter replied: 1 "Oh. well, lft it go at that; you will j get credit with the Lord for a penny, j and the church will get the benefit of the $4.D!?. So it i? with the mere j tossing, to the wayside beggar, of I alms. Almost invariably, these street beggars are impostors, and to givo to them is actually to discourge dls j houesty. For several years there sat day I after day on the Main srteet bridge 1 spanning tlie canal at Cincinnati, a | man with only one arm. grinding t away a little hand organ. Nickles and dimes made a merry rattle almost continuously into the little tin cup upon the top of the organ, for this is one of the busy shopping districts of that city. Some years ago this man said to the writer: "The world owes me a living, because I have only one arm. And I am getting it, too. I own today seven houses, with the lots upon which they stand." and he named a beautiful suburb of the city in which these houses were located. 4,A11," said he, "bought with the money dropped into my lit tle tin cup day after day." Chronic Condition. Pauperism, with all that word means, thus becomes a chronic condi-! tio nof those who would, with loving} encouragement, become self-support-; ing, and an honor to the community,! instead of a problem. Again, the fact is not to be over looked, that with such thoughtless giving, there is a duplication of ef fort. with its harmful features. Thrift, independence and industry arc thus positively discouraged, and those who are thus papuperized, be come a harmful element in the com munity; i in posters, beggars and vag rants infest the city. The average man, when appealed to for aid will take the easiest course. He will hand out his money, and thus dismiss from his mind any further claims upon his time and atten tion. But to give money or supplies j to an applicant for aid. when em ployment is the greater need, Is but to make a pauper of the man, and to destroy his self-respect.

Dangerous Body. Possibly >011 may be one of those I who Bay: "I would rather be? im posed upon time after time, than to: miBH giving to one of God's worthy poor." That is Ann sentiment. but | do not lose Bight of the fact that, in encouraging the many unworthy, a ? dangerous body of dishonest people I are being encouraged to prey upon Boclety: and that from the criirn* of professional pauperiBm, they gradu ate into greater criminal practices upon the community. Not only can poverty be cured, but pauperism and impoBitlon can be prevented. Hut it can only be done by an Intelligent understanding of the needs of the individual helped. And in no better way can this be done than by on", central, fully or ganised institution for the study and relief of individual requirements, where the funds may be administer ed so as to do the largest possible amount of good. fteiuton for Existence, Just here is where the Associated Charities finds its reason for exist ence. All cases of destitution and suffering are here intelligently handled; duplication of effort is avoided; imposters soon And that this city is no comfortable place for them to exist, and the average citi zen at all timea feels that his obli gation to the needy has been Intelli gently discharged, and his generosi ty ha? not been abused.

The Associated Charities inviteB you cordially to visit its rooms in the Latstetter building, with a mind open to conviction, and you will leave these rooms an ardent advo cate of scientific and organized dis tribution of relief to the needy of our city.

(?V ASSOCIATED PftKBS> "WASHINGTON. Oct. 21.?Organ-! ized labor's first official appeal to its | membership in behalf of President Wilson's re-election was made public today, at the American Federation; of Labor headquarters. It is in tin* form of a circular letter to all of ficers of organized labor, calling on them to hold special meetings if nec essary to consider the issues of the campaign, and see to it that wage earners go to the polls to protect their interests against "Wall street." The letter is signed by Samuel Gompers, president; James O'Connell, vice president; and Frank Morrison, secretary, as the federation's labor representation committee, and it has been sent to the heads of all affiliated organizations. In reviewing the record of the administration, it prais es the president's course in foreipn affairs, declaring that without war he has secured all the protection and benefits that would have accrucd from a successful war. and asserts that at home the labor movement "has been able to secure recognition for the rights of human beings and opportunity for all to participate in the affairs or the nation in a degree that never before has been accom plished." Following is the letter in part: "Greeting:?Never at any time within the last fifty years have the workers had mor?* at stake in any po litical campaign than in the ooe that is to be discussed in the election No vember 7. "During the present administra | tlon and particularly in this cam paign there has been developed a clear cut issue between the workers? the producers- and those who manip ulate the products of thejabor of oth ers. The issue is represented in the campaign by the conflicting interests represented by labor and Wall street. "During tho present administration the organized labor movement has been able to secure recognition for the rights of human beings and op portunity for nil to participate in the ( affairs of the nation in a degree that has never before been accomplished. "The dignity of human lif<- and the value of the co-operation of those whose work is necessary to the pro cesses of industry and commerce have been given an important place in con sidering all problems that concern tho nation. This recognition has taken the form of legislation necessary to protect the interests of wage earners and in the ideals of humanity that have guided and directed national policies both at home and in our rela tions with othe nations.

Stone street have returned from a hunting trip in Braxton county. They brought bac ka liberal amount of game caught on the trip. man slaughter, yet the chief executive! of our land has been able to managcl the affairs of the nation and the in-j terests of our citizens so that wlth-j out the horrors of war he has estab lished and maintained protection of human life and human right in the' somewhat vagfie domain bf interna tional law. Without involving this, nation in war, he has secured for us' all of the protection and all of the benefits that would have accrued from a successful international war, and by diplomatic correspondence, has achieved the victory of embodying concepts of humanity in international activity, at least in so far as Amer ica Is concerned. "The interests that have been seed ing to plunge our country into war not only with European countries, but also with Mexico are the interests that are represented by the most sel fish and most consciencless element of ' Wall street." After mentioning the eight-hour day act. the seamen's law and the child labor law, the letter adds: "It is impossible to give the full list of remedial and protective legislation that carries its benificent influence into the homes of millions of Amer ica's workers."
