MISDIEECTED CHA Ml Y.
A recent issue of the Outlook has an in-
teresting- article on "Pernicious Philanthro-
pies." Miss Sara E. Wiltse, the author,
has had a long experience among the un-
fortunate. She speaks especially of the
mistakes made in work among poor chil-
dren in large cities. She commends the
clubs* for beys and girls as a feature of
the charity work of New York city, and
says that there "can be no doubt that thesp
clubs have d6ne and are doing a great deal
to uplift and educate the children of the
very poor. In this city their influence for
r"*od has been incalculable, and they de-
serve the sympathy and help of all." Other
excellent features of the reform work are
noted, after which Miss Wiltse directs at-
tention to the fact that in the domain of
ethics every virtue is in dan:;er of running
into vice, and to illustrate this danger ahe
explains that in "some cases these clubs
have been the means of alienating the chil-
dren who belong to them from their own
parents." Those who organize the clubs
tio not desire this, and. perhaps, are not
directly responsible for it. They would like
to make over the children whom they find
running wild on the streets to the point
where they would become little missionaries
in their sordid homes. That would be a real
reform, not merely for the children, but
for the parents. But, as a matter of fact,
it does not always work that way. Under
the uplifting and humanizing influences of
the club the children grow so entirely out
of sympathy with their parents and homes
that they shun them as much as possible.
This Is especially true. Miss Wiltse says,
of the daughters of foreigners who join
philanthropic clubs or King's Daughters'
olrcles. They soon come to think it a dis-
grace to speak, or even understand their
own languuge. "We want to adopt and
educate these foreign-born children," she
adds; "but we need to take great care not
to make them scornful of home conditions,
speech and occupations. I lately questioned
some attractive Jewesses about their home
interests; and their surprise that anyone
should think they wasted any time there
was rather shocking." Other important
matters are noticed in the article. It is
shown that many children of the poor do
not get enough sleep. If they go to school
they often sit up over their studies until
10 or 11 o'clock at night and get up at 6
in the morning. A well known physician
recently gave it as his opinion that early
rising among farmers is a cause of insan-
ity. Whether or not insanity be the penal-
ty of insufficient, sleep, there can be no
doubt that children especially require plen-
ty of sleep, and many children of the tene-
ments do not get it. "This is a matter
that might well engage the attention of
philanthropists," says the New York Trib-
une. They might also do much good by
teaching the children of the poor to be
provident. Miss Wiltse says that while the
need of instruction on that point is great,
its success would be undoubted. Children
who are in the habit of spending relatively
large sums on candy, gum or pickles are
easily persuaded to save their pennies for
some definite good object—such as a book
or a set of cheap but pretty pictures for
their homes. • * • It is a mournful fact
that it is seldom possible to do any great
good without doing, incidentally at least, a
little evil. This Is probably true, in a
measure, of the splendid philanthropic
agencies that to-day are doing so much to
uplift and regenerate this and other cities.
The work itself, however, should not be
discounted for that reason. On the con-
trary, it should be prosecuted with re-
newed vigor, but in a way to avoid as far
as possible the mistakes which come to the
surface." The greatest charity is that by
which unfortunates are helped to help
themselves. It is not always charitable or
kind to give to a beggar or a sot the money
for which he asks. To cultivate in chil-
dren ambitions and fancies that can never
be realized and which may at length leave
them adrift on a shoreless sea of abortive
effort and hopeless discontent is in most
instances the worst thing that could be
done to them. Misdirected charity has
Mr. S. G. Warner, general passenger and
ticket agent of the St. Louis Southwestern,
writes The News that representatives of
the southeastern lines are circulating re-
ports in Georgia and adjacent territory
that great destitution prevails in Texas ow-
ing to last summer's drouth. The object of
spreading such misinformation is to stop
the tide of immigration toward Texas. The
origin of the reports, it seems, was an in-
terview in the Atlanta Journal, in which
some obscure dentist who .visited Texas al-
leged that the great black land district of
Texas had esp rtence-l an utter ciop failure
and that great suffering would be the re-
sult. This dentist advised all homeseekers
to beware of Texas# The railroads who
countenance the spreading of these falsify-
ing exaggerations should be ashamed of
themselves, and the southeastern press
should not exhibit its ignorance by circu-
lating what they should know is untrue.
Texas had a touch of drouth last summer,
and the crop was not a good one for Texas.
The farmers, however, have raised about
2,COO,000 bales of cotton, which means about
$75,000,000 to be distributed among the people
in the cotton-growing section. The corn
crop in addition to last year's surplus will
be sufficient to run the farmers until the
next crop is gathered. One million head of
beef cattle have been marketed and almost
an average crop of wool. The agricultural
and livestock products will amount to at
least double the money products of Georgia
and South Carolina, although those two
states have in the aggregate a larger agri-
cultural population. A short crop in Texas
in any other southern state would mean an
enormous yield, notwithstanding the vast
sums spent In the southeast for fertilisers.
The drouth in Texas was notable for the
reason that it is unusual for the agricultu-
ral sections to suffer drouth. Texas is still
offering the greatest inducements in the
way of rich, cheap lands'to thrifty home-
seekers of all the states of the union, and
misleading reports by southeastern railroad
men can not change this fact. Despite the
calamity howlers at home and the menda-
cious land agents of other states. Texas
farmers are fairly prosperous, there is no
destitution and the people are looking for-
ward to great times in 1S97. As matters
stand to-day no two southern states com-
bined con equal Texas in its agricultural
results for l&C.

The daughter of an Indian chief belonging
to the Six Nations listened to a theosophi-
eal lecture the other day by Burcharm
Harding and declared that the philosophy
preached was that which in former days
had guided her father. Thereupon Mr.
Harding decided to attend the annual meet-
ing of the Six Nations and hear what the
Iroquois, the Senccas. the Onondagas, the
Oneidas and the Mohawks had to say
about the matter. He told them that ac-
cording to occult philosophy, they were
once possessed of a civilization greater
than that which the white man now enjoys
—if he does enjoy it-and he proposed to
lead them along the forgotten paths to
the position on theosophlcai heights which
they once occupied. "Many persons will be
ready to admit," says the Chicago Chroni-
cle, "that what the Indians need is theoso-
phy and what theosophists need is In-
dians. They have much in common—they
are ancient, pathetic, futile and detached.
If the theosophists will go to the Indians
as missionaries and the indians can get any
comfort out of them, why not? It must
be admitted that the average American is
at a loss in dealing either with theosophy
or the Indian. Could they comfort one an-
other and leave the American alone no one
would gainsay them."

According ti the general impression, the
election will result, it is said, in a rapid
diminution of the gold withdrawals for the
United States, and there Is no doubt that
victory favorably affected the
stock exchange throughout. Consols opened

A leading English stock brotter, 1n an in-
terview with a representative of the Asso-
ciated Press*.-said: "McKinley's election has

The Star remarks: "We in England have
good reason to rejoice at the overwhelming

tithe of the ruin which Bryan's victory
would have entailed. There will be an im-
mediate improvement of business after the
defeat of Bryan, and confidence restored In
the financial honesty and stability of the
United States. The common sense of the
American oeople has saved the republic
from worse than civil war."

United. States Ambassador Bayard re-
ceived last evening from the London office
of the Associated Press dispatches regard-
ing the election. The Associated Press had
an interview with Mr. Bayard. The ambas-
sador said: "The keynote that rises above
the confusion and excitement that rings In
my ear Is that the people of the United
States, guided by the instincts or patriotism
and self-preservation, regardless of past
party affiliations, have unmistakably re-
pudiated repudiation in any form, and In-
structed those who seek official power that
they must at least assume a virtue If they
have it not. and that public and private ob-
ligations must be placed beyond the reach
of the political Jack Cades of this century.
It will strongly tend to re-establish inter-
national confidence in the stability and se-
curity of property intrusted to democratic
government, and harmonize international
interests and assist good relations.

Sutiwfactioii in Germany,
Berlin, Nov. 4.—(Copyright, 18%, by the
Associated Press.)—The result of the elec-
tion in the United States was received
throughout Germany with general satisfac-

A high official of the foreign office said:
"The government is pleased with the result,
and congratulates America on ridding her-
self for good of an incubus and dangerous
financial upheaval. All civilized nations
will profit by the outcome, and especially
Germany, owing to the intimate, important,

To-night many of the papers have no edi-
torials on the election. The stock exchange,
however, was jubilant and keenly awaited
all information. Stocks generally rose.
The Tageblatt says: "A nightmare has
fallen from the breast of the silverltes. Nev-
er before has an election Inspired similar
interest. Bryan's victory would have been
celebrated by the enemies of popular liberty
throughout the world, and McKinley's vic-
tory decides In favor of those who believe
in the ability of nations to govern them-
selves. The American people have again
shown themselves worthy or American tra-
ditions. McKinley means a restitution of
security. It is true that the shadow of his
narrow-minded tariff policy threatens to
darken the victory, but wo hope he will
not repeat them while president.'
The Hamburger correspondent remarks
this afternoon: "Europe, and Germany in
particular, will hall the election of McKin-
ley with satisfaction, since it is sure that
the foundation of regular commercial Inter-
course will be maintained."
The Cologne Gazette says this afternoon:
"McKinley's election will benefit all Europe.

McKinley's success may lead to economic
revisions, for his name is synonomuos with
economic protection, which, with the mon-

that protection will prove more beneficial
now that the greater evil has been averted.

City of Mexico, Nov. 4.—No previous pres-

created such excitement and interest among
all classes as the present one for business
men, bankers and manufacturers, who felt
that Mexican interests demanded the elec-
tion of McKinley, and the Mexican Herald
says for Mexico the declaration of the

many large and important undertakings
for which capital could not have been ob-

the general good of Mexico.
El Mundo to-night points to the American
campaign as an example for all Spanish-
American nations, for the spectacle is af-

most bitter canvass, gracefully, patriotical-

Mexico, which has followed with visible
anxiety the struggle in the United States,
rejoices as It should rejoice on learning of

gold and protection. The American union

these outdoor sports bring is reflected In
the rosy cheeks and bright eyes of the

this aspect of the present "fad" for outdoor
sports, what the men and women of a
quarter of a ceniury ago did in their time,
when the craze had not begun. Dancing is
now at a discount, while hunting, golf, and
cycling are to the fore, but Terpsichore

One of the most successful of New York's
country clubs—the Richmond County club-
on* which has occupied for some threa or
four months past a picturesquely situated
old house on the Clove road, em Staten Is-
land. has so grown as to demand larger
quarters, and Is now about to move to a
commodious mansion on Todt hill, near
New Dorp. The change Is not viewed en-
tirely with favor by some of the members
of the club, as it will necessitate a longer
drive or bicycle ride from New Brighton or
the North Shore, where most of the mem-
bers of the club reside, but the house select-
ed is so great an improvement on the old
one that it is hoped these objecting mem-
b rs will see the advisability of the move.
The view from the piazzas of the new house
over the wide meadow lands immediately at
the base of Todt hill and the blue waters of
the bay beyond, is an entrancing one and
must be seen to be enjoyed. During the
hunting season the new location will be
found to be very advantageous, as the club
holds most of its runs over the flat lands
on the south shore of the Island.
The new Ardsley casino has already

sino has proved that there was need of a
well established central club house near the
east bank of the Hudson river, and with
good management the casino has seemingly
entered on a most prosperous existence. It
has a character and individuality of Its
own. and can not be compared for this rea-
son with either Tuxedo or the Westchester

As MJss Banks Is the only woman who
srcceeued In obtaining an Interview with
LI Hung Cliang while he was in England,
there is comparatively little doubt that she
will attain all her modest ambitions here.
■Jlow did tamanage to get my interview
with LI Hung Chang?" she said. "Oh, that
was simple enough. 1 went to Lord Lons-
dale's house, where he was staying, one
morning at 8. When they told me that he
could not see me I said 1 would call the
next morning at T, and if 1 were too late
then I'd call the third morning at i. So
his excellency saw me that morning, and.
although the interviewing was a mutual
aff.'.ir and not exclusively on my side, we
parted excellent friends. He gave me a
coin as a souvenir of him, and 1 sent him a
yellow-bound cony of one of my books as a
memento of me.
Miss Banks' story of her entrance into
English journalism through the English
kitchen, as it were, is Interesting.
"I had been visiting In London." she said,
"and had spent all my money. I was
'broke.' 1 made up my mind that I had to
get money, and get It quick, and to get
reputation and get It quick." It will be ob-
served that Miss Bank's English expe-
riences have not destroyed the purity of
her American dialect. "So I thought for
awhile and then advertised for a place as
housemaid. I had 1S5 answers. I went to
two places, staying a week in each, and
then I wrote my articles, describing the
English housemaid's life. Some peopje
wrote and said thafi ought to be arrested
for gaining an entrance into houses under
Miss Banks laughed merrily at this view
of her clever device, and went on to relato
the other startling Innovations she intro-
duced in slow-going English journalism.
"I advertised for an introduction Into
the British aristocracy, stating that I was
an American heiress." she said. "I had
eighty-five answers to that, written with
the utmost candor on crested paper, giving
credentials and all that. I have destroyed
all the letters and have never divulged any
of the names. Then I investigated and
found out the cost of a fine English pedi-
gree to a rich American. I swept crossings.
I sold flowers tflul lived In a servants'
home. But for the last two years I have
been engaged mainly in magazine work."
This young woman, who has given Lon-
don some of Its startling shocks. Is a verv
quiet, modest little person. She Is small
and slight. Her brown eyes are frankness
itself, except when she looks out of the
corner of them with the air of one sizing
up a British matron's claims to aristocracy
or the cost of a certain cOat of arYns.
She seems to the casual observer about 17
years of age. l>ut as it is four years since
she first set May fair trembling to think
what she mixht discover next, she Is proba-
bly older. She aeimlts a devotion to poodles

can heiress when poodles were in fashion.

It Amused the Old Man.
The old man came down to the suburban
station leading a most reprehensible dog.
Leading Is hardly the word, for In reality
he dragged the unwilling animal after the
fashion of a sled. With coaxing words he
lured the scraggy beast on. and finally he
got it safely stowed under the bench on the
shady side of the station. He bought a
paper then, and settled down to wait twen-
ty minute? for the cityward train.
Mr. Huffman and Mr. Jodyngs had
marked the approach of the old man and
had smiled somewhat at his trouble when
the dog had pulled back with greatest
"It's funny. Isn't It," said Mr. Jodyngs,
"that an otherwise reasonable and sane
man will take up with such a dog as that
and treat It as a pet?"
Mr. Huffman assented, and said he sup-
posed the old man would go Into parox-
ysms of wrath if anything were to happen
to the dog. That suggested an Idea, and Mr.
Jodyngs nearly burst with laughter as he
thought upon that idea.
"Suppose we steal the dog and put It on
the north bound train, and when the old
man finishes his paper and goes to take the
city train he will be furious." This was
Mr. Jodyngs' idea, and Mr. Huffman came
near exploding, It was so funny. Mr. Huff-
man sal down next the old man, so as to
conceal the workings of Mr. Jodyngs, and
Mr. Jodyngs, with suppressed snorts of
laughter, untied the twine and hauled the
dog around the corner of the station and
into the express office, where he paid a
glad dollar and expressed the sorry beast
to a fictitious John ymith at a station a
dollar's worth up the line. The old map.
continued reading, while the up train stood

CORDOVA AT MIDNIGHT.
Gayety in the Spanish City Is Then
ut Its Height.
Century for September.
In the evening, after dinner, about S
o'clock, we draw chairs out upon our little
balcony above the Paseo. Listless groups
had gathered about Its cafes. Two gypsy
children, as black as negroes. In their scant
white shirts, with persistent hands and
voices, were carrying on Spain's one flour-
ishing business; but it was not a stimulat-
ing sight, and, tired out with the day's
journey, we went at once to bed. It must
have been some two or three hours later
when we were awakened by a loud crash
of cymbals and blast of trumpets. Our first
thought was that soldiers were marching
through the town, and we hurried to the
window to see. Below, a great mass of
people were seated under the palms. Open
carriages were passing up and down on
each side, and men on horseback. Very
smart nurses, with great bows of ribbons
on their heads, had brought wide-awake
babies out for an airing. (Treat trucks und
vans of merchandise rumbled by. Work-
men were about. Half way down the Paseo
a band had just begun to play. The cafes
were abiaze with light, their tables crowded
to overflowing. Cordova at midnight had
come to life.
The air was hot and close, used up by
that vast multitude, and the dust, stirred
by their ceaseless march, choked us where
we stood. It was hopeless to try to sleep
again, and we waited by the window. Of
a sudden a bell sounded loud above the
voices of the crowd. At once the band was
hushed, carriages were stopped, the people
on the chairs under the palms were on
their feet, and not a man but stood, hat in
hand. We looked to the end of the Paseo.
for everybody was looking that way. From
out the doors of the Moorish minaret-
crowned church came a procession of men
in while surplices, with flickering candles
and tall lanterns, and a priest.carrying the
sacrament, under its golden veil, to the dy-
ing. Men who a moment before had been
drinking fell upon their knees, and we
could hear nothing but the tinkling bell and
the murmur of a low chant, as the priest
walked slowly on between the rows of
kneeling people, praying there in the star-
light under the palms. And so In Spain to-
day. as yesterday, does life In a moment
change from fooling to prayer, as the
shadow of death passes by, only to return
to Its folly as readily when the shadow has
passed. Once the priest had gone back to
the church, and the doors were shut, the
music, louder than ever, went on where It
had left off, carriages rolled on, and horse-
men pranced after them.
There was no sleeping any more. We
dressed ami packed our bags, and when In
the first dawn the band went away, and the
last few stragglers were going home, and
a few peasants were coming in with their
donkeys, and cafes were being shut, wa
