WATERBUBY EVENING DEMOCRAT, MONDAY. DECEMBER 21,1903.
Jft SOME CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS Iporne People With Money Others Only Looking On. Things looked like the Christmas reason about town to-day. Between shoppers, sightseers and traders tht sidewalks were thronged at times and many .found it difficult to remain long enough at show windows to see every thing, the rush in some instances be ing so great that folks who object to getting into tight places found it con venient to keep on the move. It is surprising how suspicious some people re 'of their fellowrnen. As soon as ft stranger comes within arm's length vt them they immediately conclude tlhat he is up to 'something. If it is not his intention to get hold of their pocketbooks or make off with their i jewelry, he is bound to step on their corns, "which is almost as bad. Then ithere are other reasons. This raorn - ing a haughty appearing young wo man backed out of a crowd that was admiring the display of Christmas jjroods in a show window and hurried ..'11 , PliUAlUg i If t J 1VI ICUJUllUU (ns she went that one couldn't stop to look in through a window without be ing insulted. - Nobody "could see why Ithe lady had thought of such a thing. 'There were about half a dozes respect able appearing women in th crowd, j three or four boys and one little girl. , "What's the matter with that one?"! Inquired the woman who had the tot of a girl in tow. "Oh, I don't know," (replied one of the others, "but I sus Vpect she thought we should have . walk." Probably the old woman hit the nail on the head, although what she said was regarded as a joke and tier companions laughed at it. Many expect the same deference from people , Mier meet on the street that is yield ed to them by those in their employ, ind not receiving it, which they rare ly do, their dignity Is wounded and they imagine folks mean to be rude . towards them who may not have no ticed them at 'all. Are you looking around for . some worthy poor on whom you may have " an opportunity to bestow a little char ity this Christinas? If so, don't say that you have not been able to find . anybody who needed a helping hand. , The office- of the board of charities is w. good plae to get the names of such iiprsone Snnerintenden Doran knows every poor family in Waterbury and will' be pleased to tell you where your offering .will do the most gooff. The pity "Is doing something for the poor, but even so. there is room for others to help out; without fear of anybody re ceiving too much. But does Mr Doran, know all the poor of the city? It is certain that he is quite familiar with the needs of those who, are receiving town am, but how much does Mr Doran know . , I M J 1 1 V. ml udouc struggling lauuueg wxiu uuiu almost starve rather than ask bread . from their closest friends, let.alon ap plying to the town? Whether one de serves credit for being too proud to ac cept public charity when he finds him self and his family In the last ditch, is X question this article is not dealing with, but there can be" no doubt that many suffer for want of the necessaries of life especially during the winter months simply because they prefer to Jet the wolf do a lot or Howling at the door before making up' their minds to . trade at the town store, notwithstand ing that the clerk, Mr Atwood, is a charming gentleman and treats those ' who call upon hl Just the same as if they had the cash for what they want in their hands. How is this class of God's creatures to Ibe reached and made happy on Christmas day? The board of charities has no record of ' them and they are not known to the officers of the Salvation Army or the (Boys' club. iDou you wish to do some thing for such people?, If so, perhaps .vou may be put on the right track by calling upon the pastors of the church es. Catholic and Protestant. It is no I Mi u i t im i w m ir ii mi mi him ir J nn iiiiii himself or herself In need of something to eat or wear, as well as a little fuel, should be backward in making known their wants to the department of chari ties, and while most people do, yet it is a fact that many shrink from the cold hand of charity and In conse quence there ls a broad field In Water bury for well .disposed Christians to light --up homes on Christmas morning which will be pretty dreary places un less some one does a little missionary work outside the regular channels. , CHRISTMAS MUSIC.
