A Sociable Gentleman I'nts an Too

agreeable fellow whose face is a perpet
ual indication of good nature stored
within and sat down beside a little
girl whose mother was on the other
side of her, says the Detroit Free Press.
Vossibly he might not have fallen into
trouble, had he let the child alone, but
his congeniality got the better of him,
and he said:
"So you are going down town, are
The child moved closer to her moth

"I wish I had such a nice little girl as
you are," was his next smiling re
"Mamma," whispered the child, "is
this a bad man oer here?"
"Hush, Nellie," replied the mother, in
"But I'm afraid he's a bad man, mam
"Xo; keep quiet."
"But you said bad men talked to
strange ladies on the cars, and
thought he was one. I wish you'd
move that way."
But it wasn't necessary. The good

Over $1,000,000 a year is spent help

Another part of this educational help
for the colored race is famous old ay

occupies one of the most desirable
building sites in the city in good times
worth $250,000 at least. It is now under
discussion to sell thn old seminary, add
the proceeds to Union university en

A soeoial statement to Congregation
al churches tells of the educational
work of tbe American M ssionary as
sociation among the negroes and poor
whites of the south and tne Indiana oi
the west, says tbe New York Evarjge'iat
Post. In tbe south tbe association
maintains seventy-six schools in twelve
states, fifty-seven of tbem being for
negro children caring lor iu,(W pupiis.
tbe other nineteen being for the
whites of tbe mountains, 2405 of whose
children are being 'educated, many of
them to become future teachers among
their people. Tbe aim of tbe associa
tion is largely to provide
local teachers. Of the fifty-seven
schools for negroes, only twenty of
them are what are Known as "common
schools." Wherever tbe elementary
instruction provided by the state or
county for the colored children becomes
adeauate. the association removes its
primary schools to more needy districts,
or diverts tbe funds to the normal of
training schools. In the work of train
ing teachers and preachers for the In
dians, the association maintains twen
ty-one schools, with oZU pupils, it nas
been found necessary to cut tbe appro
priation for the Indian work during
the last four years from $57,800 to $35,-
The fire department has been
changed from a lonesome, dismal place
to a place of amusement and recrea
tion. This has all been brought about
by the chief issuing orders that any
fireman caught about a saloon wouia De
fired. Asa result tbe fire boys now
stay at tbe department and others go
there and play billiards or cards and
amuse themselves in every way possi
ble. At nights there is music and
mDT people call there and spend a
pleasant hour. The boys themselves
acknowledge that they are better off
for tbe new rule and mucn loneliness
that formerly prevailed in the depart
ment is now gone. Besides this tbe
firemen are taking more pains and
pride in tbeir work and are always
ready for an emergency.
Frank, tbe extra fire horse, seems to
be worrying his life away because he
cannot work. Frank is probably retir
ed forever from the service as he baa
been suffering for some time from a
large lump in his throat that will pro
bably eventually cause his death, un
less some efforts are made to cure mm.
Otherwise, he is as sound as a dollar
and can out run anything in the de
partment. He is a perfect pet and win
not leave the department.
Harry Cbarman is in trouble. He

From the World.
FOR AFTERNOON SERVICE
Many Events That Occur During a Day
are Told Promptly by th Herald.
Much News of Interest to the Read
ers of this Paper.
The Philadelphia Collectorship.
Philadelphia, June 25. Within
the next two weeks President McKin
lev Is expected to appoint a collector of
the port of Philadelphia, and there is
a red-Ht interest in the personnel of
the successful nominee, from the iact
that the appointment will probably
determine the future attitude of Sen
ator Quay toward tbe administration.
There are but two candidates State
Senator Wesley Thomas, of this city,
whose interests have been made a per
sonal matter by Senator Quay, and
Judge Thomas J. Clayton of Chester
county, who was one of the five Mc
Kinley delegates from Pennsylvania
to St. Louis, and is tbe distinct can
didate of the McKlnleyites. From a
personal standpoint the contest is of
national interest from the fact that
Judge Clayton is a brother of ex-Senator
Powell Clayton, of Arkansas,
President McKinley's appointee as
minister to Mexico, and of William
Henry Harrison Clayton, appointed by
President McKinley as United States
attorney for the southern district of
Arkansas. There were originally four
brothers, one of them having been
killed in Arkansas as the outcome of a
political feud ten years since, and
with two of the survivors already pro
vided for, the Quayites are sarcastical
ly asking whether it is really neces-!
sary for the president to do anything
more for the Clayton family. 3enator
Quay has made a characteristic fight
for his friend, and if the plum should
fall to the third of the Clayton broth
ers, it is predicted that he will be-
heard from in his usual vigorous fashion.
Intercollegiate Boa Race.
Potjghkeepsie, N. Y. June 25. In
the history of American intercolle
giate athletics, there never has yet
taken place a boat race that has at
tracted S3 much interest in aquatic cir
cles as the triangular meeting of the
crews of Yale, Harvard and Cornell,
and which will ba pulled off on the
Hudson river this afternoon. The
course is four miles and the race will
be rowed in the middle of the afternoon
down stream, with the tide. All three
crews have been doing active trainin g
for weeks past. The contest will set
tle the rival claims of nearly a quarter
of a century to the inter-collegiate
championship, as, since the year 1876,
when Yale defeated Harvard by twenty-nine
seconds In four miles and Cor
nell defeated Harvard by four seconds
in three miles, the crews from New
Haven and Ithaca have not come to
getber. An immense throng of visit
ors is here. The boats will be follow
ed by a train of forty-four observation
cars on the New York Central which
skirts the course.
J ust as report of boat race was com.
ing in the wires refused to work and
further particulars were stopped.

assured, wordly air seen in so many
modern maids. She seems like the old'
fashioned flower like girl eulogized by
poets a decade ago, but to this great
charm are added the interest of modern
culture and tbe spice of independence.
Tbe family say that she makes her
friends according to her will, and Is as
staunch to them as ber uncle was to his
duties as a soldier and to bis political
convictions. Her relatives give her the
pet name of "Snnshine." She is slight,
fair of skin, with blue eyes and gen
uine McKinley profile.
Mayor Harrison has a plan for the
relief of Chicago's unemployed. He
declares that something must be done
for the hungry men who daily throng
the city hall begging for work. In
their interests he has a suggestion
which be will make to the civil service
commissioners at once. The mayor's
idea is to extend the list of 1,600 eligi
bles on the laborers' list to 6,000, and
give every applicant at least ten days'
work a month in rotation. He believes
working tbe men in squads or shifts
will not violate the law. Laborers now
permanently employed must share with
their comrades. He is alio confident
the plan will stand between many fam
lies and absolute destitution. Chicago
