Over against tho progress of tlx nfiw attack upon the old slum, nt shown by tho Ghent Congn r, may be put a story (old k few ovi Dings bufore at a IxjikIoii eliib.

Finally tho Good Sarnaritnt decided to Invito tho child to her coun try homo for a weok'H holiday, nu In vitntlun ncceptcd with delight. Tho good woman inndo overy provloion for her comfoit, a pretty bedroom, toys und plnymatou und books, food nud llowerd. Tho child of tho slums could stand It only four days. Sho wanted to go back to London tho second day, sho cried all tho third dny nud neither food nor fruit nor flowers could tempt hur on tho fourth. Sho Invented ex cuses to Indues her bcuofnetor to tuko her back to her tonmnent dwelling sho dreamt hor mother was dead, sho had spralnod her foot, her father had written that hor baby brother was 111.

"They aro nil thu name," said ho who told tho story us argument ugnhiat tho now crusada against tho slum, tov.n-plunnlng for nil tho peoplo, "they aro nil tbo otune; you can do nnthing with them dross thorn, fund thorn, pamper them, It Is nil tho same, they will fnll back Into tho gutter nud regard you na an enomy for trying to lift them out." "It is not nn effort to lift men from thu Blums," cpjlotly replied tho St. An druw's profosHor, "it in nn effort to abolish tho slum, do that no ono will bo born therein. For, If thoro iu no hogwnIlow, ovon tho uwlno cannot re turn to It."
