Speaking of poverty among school children, a l'hiladclphia teacher is A Pathetic Ca.e OX Poverty. Jiecord to have ately fim] the cases that need help the most are those which are hardest to find out about. Last year a strike iu my section threw a good many men out of employment, and, of course, the children suffered. For a numbev of days I noticed that a little girl with a very sad face did not go out with the other children during the noon recess. Most of the children bring their lunch and they generally eat it out in the hall. But for sev eral days this girl remained in her seat and busied herself with, her school work. One day, when I re mained in the room during recess, she brought out her little lunch bas ket and I saw that she did not open it. I then discovered that for over a week that child had carried an empty lunch basket to school, rath er than let her schoolmates discov er she could not bring anything to cat, and I found that most of this time she had had nothing all of each day after the stale bread Goaked in hot water, which was the best break fast her mother could provide for her." Public dinners are so rarely re munerative to the waiters, who in the flow of post-prandial oratory are apt to be forgotten, that where the tips do not come in as they should the wait ers have adopted a scheme for bring ing absent-minded diners to a sense of their obligations. Between the dinner and the oratory at several recent feasts a glass with a collection of small sil ver at the bottom has been passed along the tables as unobtrusively as possible, with the whispered comment that its contents were for the men be hind the chairs. So plain a hint has never yet failed. There are several res taurants where so plain a hint would not be tolerated, but many others are not so particular, and the practice shows how the waiter's tip is develop ing from a gratuity to a charge. Some time ago a militia regiment in North Carolina decided to have a Latin motto on its flag, and a wicked wag persuaded the committee in charge of the matter to adopt the fol lowing: "Xunquam animus, sed ignis via." For the benefit of those not fa miliar with Latin it should be ex plained that, though these are good Latin words, the sentence as a whole has no meaning, but the words literal ly translated, "Never mind, but fire away," makes a fairly good regimental motto. One of the most prominent Baptist Ireui'hers in the vicinity of New York has made it a practice in all his pas torates to write his resignation with in a week of his entrance upon a new, field, sign, seal and deliver it to the proper official with the remark: "There, now! Never ask m» for inv resignation. Whenever you want me to go just break open the envelope, write a date to the document and offer it to the congregation." It is estimated that fully 10,000 "laws" will have been enacted before all the legislatures adjourn. That is to say, the 30 lawmaking bodies, ex clusive of congress, that assembled this winter will have passed and the governors will have signed that num ber of good, bad and indifferent bills. Last year there were 13 legislatures in session and they enacted 5,772 new laws. What lie Did. Kentuckian—He called me a liar, •ir. New Yorker—And what did you do? Kentuckian—I went to the funeral. Vvtrolt Free Press. A YALPABLE BOOK. Government Issues Beautiful Work Descriptive of Eskimo Life. The Work of Mr, NPIHOII, IYIHMC KX- plorjilii)])* ilnvp IU'CII AlmuMt He* yonil Valnp from Wonderful Versatility of Knowledge. By far the most beautiful and elab orate publication over produced by the government has just been issued by the bureau of American ethnology and is a minute study of the lives of Uncle Sam's curious Kskimo childeu about llehring strait. The work is that of Mr. Edward William Nelson, whose explorations for the govern ment have been almost beyond value from the wonderful versatility of his scientific knowledge, without which an explorer is of little benefit, to man kind There are hundreds of the most beautiful illustrations in Mr. Nel son's work, made by Mr. Wells M. Sawyer, illustrator of the bureau of American ethnology, telling in pic tured story the art* anl crafts of these curious Indians. The writer gives a most minute detail of the house life and social customs of the Eskimos, their moral character, curi ous religious and mortuary customs, totems and family marks, wars among the various tribes, and even a close study of the games and toys, music, dances, feasts and festivals, wihile the literature is rich and fascinating with folk lore tales and mythology. He makes one know this semisavage race as though they were right here on our own soil instead of thousands of miles away over a trackless waste of frozen country. In order to further his work Mr. Nelson had to enlist as a private ip the regular army, and in connection with this comes a tale of the snobbish side of army and navy life at the capital. Upon his return to Washing ton his name was proposed as a mem ber of the famous'Cosmos club, which is composed principally of the best* known scientists of this and other countries, some of whom are army and navy officers. These men object ed to the famous explorer and sci entist upon the ground that he was a pyivate in the regular army. The old scientists of the club got wind of the matter, and had it come to a contest they would have made it lively for the snobs. Luckily tne matter was not brought up, and Mr. Xelson never knew how near he came to being os tracized on account of his enlisting In the army in furtherance of science. The present volume on the Eskimo is the first, and another and even more elaborate work is still in the hands of the printers and binders, and will be itMied in the next few months. TO SEARCH FOR WINDWARD. Etaamer Whli'li Took Mri. I'enry and Hl»» Peary North to Be Looked l'j. The Peary Arctic club held its an nual meeting the other afternoon and reelected President Morris K. Jessup, Treasurer Henry W. Cunnon and Secretary Herbert L. Hridgeman. and referred to the executive com mittee the work of the coming sum mer. It is likely that a steamer will be chartered and dispatched to find the Windward, from which, since its departure from Godhaven, North Greenland, August 20, 1000, with Mrs, Peary and Miss Peary, nothing has been heard. Ihe instructions to Capt. Bartlett, of the steamer, were definite not to remain north except upon express orders of Lieut. Peary, and the inferenoe therefore is that the party have wintered at his head quarters, where abundant supplies are stored, and would be likely with the opening of arctic navigation to return. The club, however, prefers to be on the safe side and to leave nothing doubtful, though the only promise to Capt. Bartlett was that if the Wind ward did not return during 1901 a steamer would be sent to his relief in 1902. It is not likely that the Peary club's steamer wiil take nny passengers, either scientific or sports men, the cruise being restricted to t^e urgent business in hand. Th« club is confident of the com plete success of Mr. Peary's under taking and holds absence this winter Indicates his sure return next sum mer, after having visited the pole. When the dove flew out from the ark it brought back to Noah an olive leaf. When King Solomon was settling accounts with the workmen who built his temple he gave 160,000 gallons of olive oil as wages. In southern Europe, for hundreds of years the olive groves have been the for tunes of their owners. It is said the gnarled and kfiottcd olive trees in Geth semane are the same trees under whose branches Christ prayed. It Is said Italy's olive crop Is worth 1120,000,000 a year. In one year an olive tree will jrield 100 gallons of olives, and they sell from CO to 78 cents a gallon. A young tree gives »5 profit a year, and in California, where the olive tree has been transplanted, it begins to yield fruit much sooner than in its original home. One oounty in California has a grove of £00,000 trees. TOM.11V AS HIIJIIT. Teacher—Now, Tommy, how many months have 28 days? Tommy—All of 'em.—Chicago Intel Ocean. 1" 1"»1» Culture in Canada.

Sent to PoNtiuaitvr General Smith from Colorado—Made of Ca» i'«led l'OHtnice Stamps. Postmaster General Smith has re ceived a unique walking stick, which is known as the. convict's cane. It was made by tin inmate of the penitentiary at Canon City, Col. The cane lias been placed in the museum of the post of fice department, it is made of thou sands of canceled postage stamps, wound round a thin steel rod, subject ed to heavy pressure, and then highly polished. The convict who made the cane scut it to the postmaster general with the following letter: "I ship you by express, prepaid, a cane made from canceled stamps af fixed to a three-sixteenth inch spring steel rod, at the same time being sub jected to a high pressure, and then worked down into its present form, polished and finished. I have been a year in making this cane, working at it during my leisure time, and have taken great care and pains to make it durable. My purpose in sending this cane is that I am shortly to be dis charged and will try to live honorably in the future. 1 am serving a tevm for my first offense and am heartily sick of the life. I leave the penitentiary in the dead of winter and it may be some time before 1 can find employment. 1 am trying to raise some money to en able me to live until 1 can obtain em ployment. If, after you have exam ined the cane, you would like to keep it, whatever amount you will send mo will be greatly appreciated and I will be truly grateful for your assistance. If you do not want the cane you can return it at my expense. Respectfully, "Number 4,598." Upon receipt of the cane the post master general wrote to the warden of the penitentiary and inclosed a check for the convict. THE GOVERNMENT FARM. In Bad Shape (or Exparlmantu Owing to Laud Belnir I'aed In To bacco Culture. Secretary Wilson has a oorps of men at work at the government farm adjoining the Arlington national cemetery, but it will be probably a year or two before the place will be in shape where experiments in farm ing can be conducted. In tnlking about the government farm Secre tary Wilson frankly said it was un doubtedly the worst piece of land he ever saw. It needed grading, drain ing and fertilizing, and it will be some time before the land will be in shape to grow grass. This land has been used for the production of tobacco for so many years that the fertility has been com pletely exhausted, hence it will be necessary for the agricultural de partment to fertilize it to put in shape for farming purposes. The secretary has not outlined a plan to be conducted in connection with this farm, but will wait for con gress to say what must be done. There is an annual appropriation of $10,000 for conducting the farm, but in addition to getting the land in a fertile condition buildings and out houses must be constructed. It wiil be a long time before the farmers of the country wiil gain any practical benefit from the govern ment farm at the national capital, but in the meantime the experi mental stations throughout the coun try are at work making experiments which will ultimately result in finan cial benefit to the farmers and will lessen their work.

Compulsory pcluo.'iiion of the Imliar.s Is advocated by the superintendent ol Indian schools, WIID shows that, only half of the 40,000 Indian children at tend school. "Civilization only conies to a people by the slow process of edu cation," says the report of the super intendent of Indian schools, "and unless we educate and civilize the majority of the children the down pull of the ig norant will be greater than the uplift of the educated. "The government Is endeavpring to prepare the Indian for independence and citizenship, and to confer this boon tipon a people without first requiring their education is the greatest unwis dom.
