A WORK WHICH HAS HELPED MANY
POOR AND RICH FAMILIES.
What "Kitchen Gar!iii Training," Means,
II uw It Was Started and by Whom.
MIhs Huntington' Great Work fur Her
Lea Fortunate Sisters in a Itla; City.
"There is so much ' to find fao.lt with
and bo much to wish for in tuck a great
big, dirty city as ours that Bometimos
the good, 6weet, modest facts connected
with our charitable institutions are over
looked," said a visitor to the Wilson In
dustrial school and mission as she came
away from there the other day. The
building at 125 St. Mark's place was
turned, nearly forty years ago, from a
factory into the pleasant school house
which it now is. This school, which was
the first institution of the kind in Amer
ica, is not endowed and is maintained
entirely by voluntary contribu tion. Mrs.
Jonathan - Stnrges is the first director,
and many familiar names are on the list
The" matron of the school is Mis?
Emily Huntington, the originator of the
system of kitchen garden training, a
branch of work now carried on not
only at the Wilson school and elsewhere
in this city, but in other American cities
and in Canada, England, Ireland, Scot
land and France. Miss Huntington has
made the mission house her home, and
here she watches day hy day the results
of the methods which she has estab
lished. It is with a fascinating interest that
one listens to the tale of how by tho
merest chance Miss Huntington, at
eighteen, just out of school and ready
to be ushered into fashion's pleasures,
chanced to be taken by a friend to visit
a "ragged school," and how the only,
daughter of fond parents put society
and the usual amusements of youth
aside, and not in the same manner, but
with the same motive as her cousin, Fa
ther Huntington, set herself about mis
sion school work.
Nobody could work with Miss Hunt
ington's energy and her. capacity for or
ganizing without developing new ideas
which should bring forth more com
plete work,' so as time passed on and she
gained experience, not only among the
poor, but with her own class, she made
various discoveries ' One was that the
leisure of some of the young girls of her
acquaintance might, readily be put to
good account, and another that kitchen
gardening might with profit be adapted
to the rich as well as the poor.
She obtained the co-operation of some
of the ' mothers and the interest of the
girls, so that a meeting was called for
the purpose of developing a plan of
movement. Fifty girls met at the house
of one of the elder women. This was in
1867. It was proved that most of them,
no matter how well versed they were in
Latin and geometry, knew absolutely
nothing about domestic science, so ar
rangements were made for forming a
normal class which should be divided
into companies, these companies to go
to the mission for regular days of teach
ing. These j-oung women, as their paths
divided, removed to Boston, Chicago
and elsewhere and set up kitchen gar
dens of their own, with the result that
the system has spread everywhere. It
might even be said with tmth that the
other thought, that of the Working
Girls' clubs, emanated from this mis
sion, for Miss Grace II. Dodge was one
of the fifty young women who joined in
the work there, and it was no doubt be
cause of the experience she gained at this
time her idea was conceived and devel
oped. The girls became kitchen gardeners
themselves, and afterward, when mar
riage had placed some of them in homes
of their own, they wrote to the founder
of the system, "You have no idea how
kitchen garden helps me with my serv
ants and my housekeeping," and to
others it gave the means of livelihood
when unforeseen reverses of fortune
made them dependent upon their own
It must be confessed that "kitchen
garden" is a rather misleading name,
for it suggests to many a place where
vegetables are grown for kitchen use.
When Miss Huntington was asked about
the name, she said: "It means a system
by which all the intricacies of domestic
science are taught sweeping, dusting,
washing, ironing, waiting at table, etc.
I thought a little of changing the name
at one time because it was confounded
with the term vegetable garden, but 1
found nothing that quite took its place,
and I soon discovered that the fact that
the name had to be explained gave it
The school hours are the same here aa
elsewhere from 9 to 3. There are about
200 girls, ranging in age from five to ten,
and there are the usual lessons in read
ing, writing and arithmetic,' which come
under the head of study. The training
in the kitchen garden branches is little
else than a systematized form of plajT,
and tins takes up a proportionate part of
the school day. Xew York Tribuue.
Nickel Armored Ships Can't Go Kortb.
The remarkable discovery of the ef
fect of temperature on the density of
nickel steel is likely to have an im
portant bearing on its nee in the con
struction of war vessels. . After this va
riety of steel has been frozen it is read
ily magnetized, and, moreover, its den
sity Is permanently reduced fully 2 per
cent, by the exposure to the cold. It is
stated 'that a ship of war built in the

clad with say 3,000 ton of nickel teel
armor would be destroyed ' by a vkit to
the .arctic rfrkme, owing to. the con
traction of the steel by the extreme low
temperature. New York Journal. '

A Story of the Late A. T. Stewart.
I was a young lawyer at the time.
I about as poor us a home missionary. 1
had to go to the late A. T. Stewart's to
take his signature to an affidavit. He
6igned ami I swore him; then he wished
to know how much there was to pay.
Li view of what took liu-e afterward, I
am justified, I 'think, in saying that
what Mr. Stewart expected me to say
when ho asked "How much?" was "Oh.
that's all right."
But 1 didn't say that; I said. "Seventy
"What?" shouted Mr. Stewart.
"Seventy-five cents," I answered
"I won't pay it," said he. "You've no
right to ask so much. The price is a
shilling, and that's all I'll give you."
"But, Mr. Stewart," I replied, "a shil
ling is the price when you come to my
, office. I've come to your store and I've
a right to charge for my car fare and a
: reasonable amount for my time. Seventy-five
cents is really a very small
' charge, Mr. Stewart, a very small
"I won't pay it," he persisted. "If
! you want a shilling you may have it,
but not one cent more."
I got angry then. I gave him one
look, with which I intended to convey
the idea that 1 held him in contempt.
: Then I said: "Mr. Stewart, you are a
poor man and I'm a rich one. Twenty
: five cents is nothing to me and seventy
' five cents is a fortune to you. I'll make
you a present of that seventy-five cents
. that you owe me.
Then I made my best dancing schocl
bow and walked off. Interview in .New
The Effectiveneiis of Modern Guns.
The prominence given to a lecture by
the German doctor. Dr. Billroth, on the
; wounded in war, has induced Mr. Archi-
! bald Forles to write on the subject.
Dr. Billroth estimates that of tiie cas
ualties at Weisseuburg and Worth dur
ing the Franco-German war, 80 per cent,
of all the wounded were caused by rifles,
13 per cent, by the large guns, and not
quite 5 per cent, by the lance and sword.
Mr. Forbes, however, says that the sta
tistics for the whole of the war on the
German side prove that over 90 per cent,
were due to rifle fire, about 9 per cent.
to artillery, and about 1 ier cent, to cold
. The smallness of the mortality from
the French artillery is explained by the
fact that their artillery was notoriously
badly served. Dr. Billroth believes that
the future will see a still greater pro
portion of deaths resulting from rifle
fire than from shell. Mr. Forbes points
out that, in doing 60, no account has
been taken of the probable use of highly
destructive explosives in the shells of
the future. Army and Navy Gazette.
The IMrst Protestant in Japan.
The first Protestant Christian in Ja
pan was one Murata, a military retainer
of the Lord of Saga, m the southern is
land of Kiushiu. In 1860 he went to
Nagasaki, by order of his chief, and one
evening, as he was crossing the harbor
in a boat, he picked up a book that was
floating about in the water. The writing
rau from side to side, "like the crawling
of crabs," and upon sending it to one of
the Dutch liien settled at Nagasaki, he
learned that it was the Christian Bible,
then a proscribed hook. Curiosity spur
red him on, and ho h:id one of his as
sistants learn the language of tho book
and tran&late it for Liin, sentence by
sentence. nis study was continued in 6ecret,
with a few friends, after his return
home. When a difficult "passage was
found, a messenger was sent to Dr. Ver
beck, a well known missionary then in
Nagasaki, for its interpretation. Murata
was afterward baptized, and his name
now stands first on the roll of Protes
tant Christians in Japan. London
Women Taking the Places of Men.
In Holland men can no longer be
trusted to work the switches on the rail
ways, and women now fill their places.
This is a slap in the face indeed to the
male sex, and a great triumph to the ad
vocates of female labor. But we have
yet to see how the thing works. The
men say that there will now be looking
glasses in the switch boxes, and that the
women will never leave them till they
have smoothed their last hair and settled
the bow of their last ribbon, and that in
the meantime there will be collisions;
that when left to themselves they never
have been in time for the train as pas
sengers, and will not be more punctual
as pointswomen; and, finally, that if they
hear their lover's whistle anywhere in
the neighborhood they will pay very lit
tle attention to that of the locomotive.
If these objections are not valid, con
clude the men, "we are not Dutchmen."
An Old Fashioned Phrase.
There is an old fashioned phrase of
hospitality which consists of only two
words, and I find it a parallel to the
Greek salutation, and like it. a com
mand.' "Sit by," saj-s the comfortable
New England farmer to his guest be
neath his roof. Now compare this com
manding phrase with the more modern
polite question, "Will you partake of
refreshments?" which is as empty and
void as a Chinese invitation, and throws
the choice of acceptance on the guest.
