A mite of a girl, with a scrap of a shawl over her head and a dress of faded, tattered print draping her attenuated little form, waited onteide a quaint, old fashioned black doorway on Third avenue, with a small, shining bras door knob and bell. Presently she was joined by a pale, anxious woman, with a puny baby moaning at each fesblo, flutter ing breAth on her shoulder. Another woman, with a sick child in her arms, had her sleeves rolled above the elbow, and her shining, braided hair unbonneted. One or two mora children stood there, and a refined looking man, with a well worn, patched suit, which. in spite of its shabbiness, had an appearance of gentibty, and an expression of mingled tenderness and despair on his thin, careworn face as he look! down into the face of little sick child in his arms, whose rings of brown hair shaded dark eyes wide and wild with fever. An old decrepit woman, with a crutch in one hand and a pail in the other. hobbled up to the little group, and a ladylike looking woman with a sad face waited quietly with the tears dropping on the dish sue cameo in her hands. Presently the little brass door knob, that was as shiny as daily scouring oould make it, turned briskly, the door swung back, and the neatest, cheeriest, dearest of gray haired women, wich a strong motherly face full of sunshine, appeared in t he whitest of caps and aprons, and exclaimed: "Bless your hearts, it's only 9 o'clock now, whatever are you in such a hurry for; but come right in, every thing is all ready." Dov.. through the long, cool passage into the tidiest of kitchens she hurried them. where every board was scoured as white as sand could scour it, and every dish re fleeted her own bright face as she bustled about pouring ont quarts of milk and pints of beef tea, dishing up bowls of delicious cooked oatmeal and rice, and pressing into the hands of the woman and children dusters of fresh daisies and crimson roses, faint with fragrance and blushing at their own beanty. "And how is the baby today T she said to the man with the sick child, "and isnt her mother any better yet. Well, keep up your courage, this beef broth will bring her up if anything will, and the man went away com forted with the hopeful courage in her voice. And to the woman who stood apart with toe tears in her eyes she had some sympathetic inquiry for the consumptive husband at home as she filled the pitcher with beef broth and tucked an extra large bunch of roses through the handle. While to the children a smile accompanied the daisies, and a pleasant mes sage to the sick mother at home or some kindly interested question about the sick sis ter or father or baby for whom the food was given. For four hours this brisk busy ladling out of fresh milk and wholesome nourishing food went on almost uninterruptedly, and when it was finished the white apron was whisked off, the tidy dress turned up ow the stuff petticoat, and the boards and benches and tables were subjected to another scrubbing and scalding before she was ready to go up stairs and tell to whose bounty those most wretched of all the city's poor were indebted for so welcome and practical a mtuificenee. "Sow," said she as she tucked up he sleeves above the hard round arms, TB tell you all about it, but, if you dont mind, Til keep on washing up my dithea. I hate to have them aettin' Yound. This is one of the five diet kitchens where nourishing food is given to the sick poor, free of all cost, on re ceiving a certificate from one of the doctors at the dis?nsiuis with which our kitchens are connected. One kitchen is on Thirty sixth street and Ninth avenue, one on Third avenue near Twenty -first street ; one on Third street, in the German quarter; cme it connec tion with the New York dispensarv, among the Italians, and a new one was established this spring, in April. "The first kitchen was opened fifteen yean ago, through the efforts of Mrs. Gibbons, who is now our president, and one of the best and kindest women that ever lived, doing ever so much active charitable work, though she is 86 years old. As soon as funds were raised, another kitchen was opened. Then rooms were offered free of rent in the German quar ter if they would establish a kitchen there, and that was opened. Rooms have been of fered in other parts of the city free of rent. but from lack of funds the society has de clined them. "How are the kitchens supported?" "By voluntary contributions from people, churches and societies. " "What kinds of food do you give the peo ple?" Whatever the doctor orders. We buy the best and purest milk there is; milk that cannot be bought in the shops or of the milk men that go into the teiiemeiit districts. Our beef tea Is made of the best beef in the mar ket, and I get up at 4 o'clock in summer to make the tea fresh every day. In the Italian quarter a great deal of rice is given out, and there arc oatmeal, farina, barley and mut ton broth, all given subject to the doctor's orders. The Flower mission sends flowers for us to distribute all summer, and wealthy people send in jellies and dainties. At Christ mas toys are given to the children, and cloth ing is also sent to us for distribution among the needy. At present we are expected to receive orders only from the physicians con nected with the dispensaries, but in extreme cases we do supply orders from other doc tors, through the district nurses." "When is your most busy season r "Well, in the summer; for so many chil dren are sick, and then work is scarce, so that we have a different kind of people coming to us; nice, respectable working people, clerks, teachers and mechanics, who are out of em ployment ana cannot ouy tne noiinsnrng food they need and are so grateful to us for it" Do you find people grateful, usuallyr Yes, really needy people are almost al ways grateful The idle, indolent, worthies. people that come are very independent, and take things as if they belonged to them, but the unfortunate sick people who have known better days and are in real distress, are very thankful. A great many Irish come to this kitchen, and they are profuse in their grati tude, saying over and over: God bless you, lady 'the saints keep you,' and ail that, but I tell them they needn't bless me, but the Christian men and women of New York who supply the funds to help them in their need.1 In the past year u,m people navereceivea food from the kitchens, and $7,178.79 have bean mid out in the various expenses attend ant upon keeping them supplied with food and service. The articles of diet most largely dispensed are milk and beef tea, of which 137,542 pints of the former and 27,155 pints of the latter have been distributed among the most helpless of all sufferers, the sick poor. New York Nun. Several Habits Which Should Be Avoided. Three Types of Readers. But you see that the object of reading may be not only to learn, but to prevent you from learning too much. By reading in one chan nel we are in danger of becoming worshipful rather than judicial You may be surprised at the statement, but there are at present a great many books that have more ardent be- i lievers and devotees than the iienrew scrip tures. I should not like to estimate the num ber of bibles that we have and are liable to have. There is also a had habit of reading, of the opposite sort, that only runs a book through the head, without assimilation of any part of it The reader is simply reading for mental intoxication. I think of all bad habits of reading the poorest is reading into a book your own emo tions or hobbies. I know readers of a good grade of Intelligence who can read out of a book anything whatever, either favoring or antagonizing themselves and their favorite views. Is it any wonder that it has come to be a common saying that a preacher can prove anything he pleases with the Bible! 1 lately sat down in a reading club. The reader came on this passage: "Is the Golden Rule yet a workable rule of average human lifer and the author argued that we had not yet reached the evolution essentially of that sort One person, and a bright, keen mind she has, promptly protested. The hour was filled with argument to show that "the Golden Rule is a just and righteous rule; that "we ought to be perfect;" that "we can obey that rule if we will" All which, as you see, was wholly to miss the purport of the author, who desired to show that man kind is not yet willing to obey any such rule. I believe the average reader fails 'at this point he does not undertake accurately to determine the meaning of the writer. My lady friend believes in perfection. Bhe promptly read herself into the book. I have three bovs who are readers. One of them uses a book as be goes to a fish pond. He lets down his attention as be drops a line into the water. In fnct, he is bobbing for ideas that rait him. What does not suit his purpose he drops back. He is in danger of being a specialist of an extreme sort I he second uses a book as be eats an apple, to eujoy himself. It is a feast be is after. He is in danger of too much discursiveness. The third quarrels witb his books. He bluntly gives an author the lie, when they transcend his experience, lhey grumble and growl to- ter, and that boy is a natural agnostic. Books, you see, are not quite the safe things we used to suppose them to be especially good books. Bad books are every year more powerless, society ill outgrow cowboy literature as it has popular lectures, and for the same reason we can do better. "E. P. P." in G lobe-Democrat.

Her- is a truly remarkable letter: I have been troubled with rheumatism for two years; had gotten so I could scarcely walk, and was in pain nearly all of the time. At night 1 could not sleep for the excruciating pain. The bone in one of my legs was very much enlarged. and 1 feared amputation would be neces sary. After trying many different patent medicines claiming to cure rheumatism and other complaints, I was almost dis couraged until about two weeks ago. when I bad to give up business. Mr. W. J.

On occasions when we misjudged distances and were obliged to pass about twenty hours, mostlv of great exertion, without food, our anxiety alxmt our companions was met by the polite assurance that "they had eaten. They even contrived to turn the sympathy the other way bv saving, "We are used to hunger, but the white man will faint" Ihe white man might endure hunger nearlv as long, but the native has this ad vantage: when food comes he has an enor mous capacity for quantity; he is a dreadful eater, while the white man can scarcely taste a morsel. The natives can also endure tbe burning thirst of this land. On a long day's march they pass all tbe streams in the morning without drinking; it is not till a or o clock in the afternoon that they become thirsty. But the white man may drink by the end of the first Lour, and then he becomes "de moralized" for the day. In lin tint mnvr-Vi trtnir'Tipe Viia t-iiTct.

There has been no darkness since we have been in Nor way. Not once have we lighted the candles in our bedroom, and though among the mountains as we have been, we never were able to see the northern horizon, yet toward tbe north there was always light, and whether the red clouds signified sunrise or sunset could onlv be determined by looking at the watch. Tbe voyage to too North cape Is not often a darigerous one, however, being. like the one we have taken from Bergen hither, almost entirely within the island belt Seasickness Is rare from the same cause. Ouly twice were we out npon the main ocean in goingaround the promontory of Stadtland and that of Btcmbest but at both these points the sea was fearfully rough and tremendous storms sometimes occur. The fishermen say that the waves are often 150 feet in height btadtland in particular is so dangerous that it is proposed to cut a canal for steamers and coasters through the neck of tbe peninsula. The celebrated Mael- stxoTi lies about half way between Trond jem and the North capo, and is not so formidable as Poe and other fancuui writers have de scribed it, and is easily avoided by passing It is caused by tbe rising and fall ing of the tide in the narrow straits between the lofty Lofodeu Islands and is only danger ous at certain hours of the day.

Word, of Atlanta, Ga, dis cusses this subject He adduces cases to show that, to all intents and purposes, the brain is a dual organ; that, though the two brains ordinarily act as a unit, they may act separately. And then Dr. Word advances as a theory that, under certain peculiar cirQ cuinstances, one side of the brain may con verse with the other side. In fact he thinks it possible, in some exceptional cases, for one side of the brain to be electro-pesitiva and the other side electro-negative. Under these otot instances the link which ties the two brains together Is in some mysterious way severed, or for the time being deprived of its co-ordinating influence. In this condition the electro-positive side may ask questions which may be automatically answered by the electro-negative side. Under these circumstances any incident or memory latent in the brain is liable to be revived, and to be automatically and unconsciously re produced by the medium; and when thus presented it comes witn au tbe force and conviction of a communication from a third or an outside party. Thus the "slate writer" gets messages from his or her own brain; or if brought into rapport (nervous relation or connection between parties) with another party, he may get mental impressions from him also.
