A few weeks ago agoawomaunud five chil
dren arrived here from Kentucky. The
woman whs entirely destitute hadn't five
cents in tho world, and tho children worohulf
uaked, sick and hungry. It was noblo
charity that suggested their prompt relief.
Thy were fed, clothed provided with a
rough home, and a low days ago were pre
sented with a sewing machine, with which
they can if they are not trilling and shiftless,
earn their own liviii". ,
It is a strange infatuation that poi-'-usso
some families who are at the point of starva
tion, that they cuu lwlter their condition by
going to tho cities. 'Phi, OI. ,n,i ,U( t trll0.
but It Is only one sin'ee-.ful ease lor a hun
dred that have come and gone poorer If pos
sible than ever. If widows und children can
not live among their relative, and friends,
in the country, whore provisions and fuel aro
cheap, whuro a littlo industry in the summer
will provide food for the winter, what can
they hope lor in tho city, whuro all the noees
suries of life aro costly aud can be hud only
for the cash? Xine times out of ten, y.js,
nineteen times out of twenty, families thu.
exchanged their country homo and chance
for a livelihood, for the uncertainties of tho
I city, come to more pinching poverty, sullbr-
inif, sicklies, ami ilmith. U e mlvite all very
poor people, therefore, and particularly
widow, with large families of nmull children
to remain among their acU:tIntanoo aud
friends, and to carefully avoid tho cities. The
coldest charity of the world Is that of cities.
In tho rush and scramble for tho almighty
dollar, the paupur, although under foot, 1.
scarcely semi; and the cry for bread that Is
kindly ministered to in the country, in the
city fall, upon deaf ears. Keep away, then,
poverty-stricken women and children, keep
awiiy from thocltv.
