From a private letter from Mr
Y. A. Pearson, who is in Kansas
City with Mrs. Pearson who is
there for medical treatment, tells
us that the weather there is the
coldest ever known iu the history
of this country; that the thermoßU
eter, at one time, registered 20
below zero, and that in Kansas
coal is $-10,00 per ton. Mr. Pear
son sends us seveial interesting
dippings frotp Kansas City papers
regarding the cold weather, one
of which we reproduce below-
Y our idea com f ort thege
eokl nights probably includes a
warm room, a soft, warm bed with
comforts and blankets tucked so
snugly about you that you can
hardly breathe. Then happy
dreams.
But one does not need to have
all that to have happy dreams or to
be happy. A floor or bench for a
bed and enough warmth to keep
the temperature fairly high is a
combination that is as good as any.
Ask hundreds of men on ihe North.
Side, They have been sleeping in
offices, hallways and on chairs
and tables iu the lodging houses
on the North Side. And they are
happy to have even such accommo
dations.
The fr mt room of the Swan
House, 528 Main Street, at night
resembles a sheep fold, with the
men lying so closely together that
not a hand could be passed be
tween. Last night fifty men slept
on the floor of the room, which is
about thirteen feet square.
In the center of the room are
some small pine tables; men sleep
beneath them and two men lie on
the table. Propped up in each
corner of the room a man is sitting
like a guard. To pass from one
part of the room to another it is
first necessary to ask the men in
the way to sit up to give you foot
room.
A late coiner carefully crawls in
between two sleepers and uses half
of each for his bed. But no one
complains. The sleeping places
are furnished free and the men are
thankful for what they get.
At the Cozy House on East Third
Street, at the Fox Hotel on Main
Street and at other lodging houses
the same rules prevail. But in all
of the houses, even though the
beds are hard, there is one advant
| age. Large coal stores are in the
room and these are gen arally kept
nearly at a red heat.
“These are the happiest men I
ever saw,” one of the proprietors
said. “One out of twenty, per
haps, knows whore he is to eat
breakfast, but that doesn’t matter.
If ever the Scriptural injunction—
‘Therefore take no thought, saying
what shall we eat? or, what shall
avc drink? or whatwithal shall we
be clothed? * * * Sufficient
unto the day is the evil thereof’
—was literally followed, it is fol
lowed here.'’
More About the StarkviKe Church.
To the Church People of the
Diocese:—The letter from Capt. J.
C. Purnell which appears in this
issue suggests in definite and con
crete form a solution of the problem
of the completion of the Starkville
Church.
If the Diocese will only lay the
matter seriously to heart, the
church can be finished before the
elds? of the current session. There
is no question of our ability to fin
ish tliis church. It is p m' 1 " „
question of Nation If "the
.-MOCQ3O. Aviii* finish dr, it will be
finis hen.
ItfM than the $£ a handsome
automobile will complete a church
which means more to the Diocese
than any Mission Chiihch in its
bounds. 1 belief e among those
whom God has blessed with an
abundance of this world’s goods
that there are in Mississippi twenty
people who can and will give
SIOO.OO each. I believe that there
are twenty people who Could spare
$50.00 each for this cause. I be
lieve that there are twenty people
who could spare $25.00 each for
this cause; that there are twenty
who could give SIO,OO each. Surely
there are twenty who could give
&3.00 each and 100 who - uld give
SI.OO each.
-
if thou hast much give plente
ously; if thou hast little, do thy
diligence gladly to give of that
little.”

Man, 92. Woman, 80, Seek Fortune
In the West.
San Francisco, Jan. 13.—Abner
Hammond, aged 92, and his wife,
who is 80, arrived in San Francisco
yesterday from Lyons, Wayne
county, N. Y., “seeking new op
portunities.”
The ferry station Avas stormed
AA’ith the rush of commuters as the
aged adventurers got off the boat
and they were caught in the croAvds.
“I did not think there would be
so many people out here,” said
Mr. Hammond. He carried his
earthly belongings in a battered
suit case and “mother” clung to
his hand.
“We wern’t getting on very
well,” he said, “and Ave thought
we’d come out here and get into
something. We had $l5O in the
bank hut it took it all to get out
here. I know a man in Los An
geles and I guess he can give ns
some advice if we can get down
there, I’d like to have a little
farm.”
The travelers’ aid department of
the San Francisco Young Women’s
Christian Association will assist

Los Angeles.

When a woman wants to marry
a man she frequently—we had al

her purpose. If it suits her, as it

spect, is a humbug. Asa matter
of fact, it has no significance at all.
