A Story of Righteous Indignation
A Story Which Makes the Heart Sick.
Two Tales from Life.
BY ZttrOßlA, TH» SA MAKITAK.
The days were growing shorter, the winds
were blowing fiercer, and that stearin, known
to the civilized world as the holidays, was ap
proaching. One evening, bleak and dreary,
there landed at an inland station, a damp, be
draggled woman, weary and footsore. She
was lean of limb and still leaner in purse.
Many and varied had been the means, resorted
to by this lone one, to battle with that, rave
nous wolf which was ever prowling at her
door. To-night finds her about to undertake a
project somewhat new, and as yet untried.
With help of friends she has pulled together
some rejected ex costumes and some ex-finery,
the property of a once-flourishing comic opera
company, now defunct. Her thought was
that under the auspices of some benevolent
society to attempt a children's cantata as a
holiday amusement, which, while sailing be
fore the patient public under that most
worthy name, charity, would at the same time
bring to herself good financial returns.
Having in due time obtained the chaperon
age of the much-sought-for society, the next
important step would be to select those chil

suitable for the allotted parts. The leading
role being one in which skilled dancing was
required, two little girls were mentioned as
quite desirable—one Jewish, the other Christ
ian. To the mother of each did the woman
now apply, and having touched the-tender
sympathies of both by her well-told tale, each
in turn (although much against her will) con
sented.
What could she want of two? you ask. I
will tell you. In this material, pot-hooking
age every conceivable thing is crowded into an
advertising scheme. Thus this woman made
all possible haste to the editorial sanctum of
the Daily News where she made this offer :
that would the editor do her advertising gratis
he should have in return the use of the two
names for benefit to hia paper by what is com
monly known as cut coupons, the child re
ceiving the largest number of coupons to be
entitled to the leading role.
When the facts became known it was, of
course, of untold annoyance to both families,
but matters having progressed thus far, it was
beyond recall. In three days' time the vote
was counted which proved the Jewish child a
victor by two majority.
The morning following the decision two la
dies met —one the president of the aforemen
tioned benevolent society and the wife of one
