All that Hie plutocrat American who
yearns to be poor needs lo do Is to sub
scribe to the famous and dignified Lon
don Times, and then to proceed to nssl.it
all the folk mnd an uncommonly queer
etowd they are), who advertise their
needs or alleged needs In this Journal's
lenowned "Agony Column "
In no other Journal In the wide world
that one wots of do people In all walks
of life so persistently advertise their
necessities or, In some cases, their niero
whims. In, apparently, the fond belief
that titter strangers will be moved by
their appeals and proceed to "cough up"
the necessary whoiewllhnl. So unblush
ing and. freiiuently, amusing are these
agonies, that the present writer recently
tosolved to collect u few of the choicer
specimen for the delectation of Ameri
can leadeis, Including chailtably disposed
American millionaires, should this happen
to meet the eye of any such.
Hole Is a highly typical "appeal"
which appeared fairly early in the holi
"Vlcnr for many yeats of a large par
ish and ids wife, utterly unable to af
ford such a luxury, intensely desire a
holiday abroad, free from work, free
from cost, free from other companion
ship thnn their own. Will any one who
npprecintes Mich a longing and is rich
enough to gratify it provide means for
this happiness? Write llevereiid () 1H1,
The Tinie.i Office, !;. C."
For sheer "nerve" It would be hard to
beat this any many others of the per
sonnls, and one freiiuently wonders If
the ingenuous folk who insert them ever
get any replies, to say nothing of dis
covering philanthropist' rendy to "part"
ns they Miy over here. Kvidontly the
Hrst appeal of the "Vicar of n Inrge
parish" wns disregarded, for a couple
of weeks afterward it was repeated with
the pathetic query, "Or does no one care?
No reply to former advertisement."
Clergymen, by the way, are arrant beg
gars. Here Is anothei of them, a "coun
try gentleman" this lime, "who would
be exceedingly grateful for loan of mo
torcycle with side car." "I Irentest eaio."
ho adds, Ingi atlntlngly 'A very real
kindness. Cannot nosslbly buy, or would."
There has boon -in seipiel to this "ad,"
so we ne or shall know whether the
vicar ever got his motor btks or whether
hi still is pedaling on "ordinary."
Folk who have gotten tiled of working
and yearn to be adopted by some afflu
ent person are thicker than blackberries.
Here is the heart-cry of one. of them:
"A young gMitlemnn, ln-io, unhappy
through family misfortune, would be ever
grateful if some one really kind and
generous would tnko a deep Interest In
him or even adopt him. Write X V '.. '
O 2,1', The Times Office, K. C."
And here that of another:
"Will wealthy lady or gentleman adopt
or Interest themselves In young man with
artistic and literary abilities? ltefeicnoes
gladly given. Genuine. Do pleuso re-
use lor II, linn iiiuir me II ( II I OW

I of tho former:
"Young piofe-sloiml man, too shabby to
obtain engagement. Will any ,p pmvid,.

Then there Is "Alpm megu," (,o ad
"'A slacker': nothing. w lll-evoi'..como-of
him; abilities, lucking application; no
vices save Indifference, emivliicpd ho can
lie useful, desires lliinnclnl help."
Of course he doe., and so does "P 2'ki "

The sheriff of Washington enuiitv i not
