A WORK WHICH HAS HELPED MANY
POOR AND RICH FAMILIES.
Wht "Kltehen Ciardeu Training," Means.
Hew It Waa Started and by Whom.
Miss Huntington's Great Work for liar
Leas Fortunate Sisters la a Bis; City.
"There ia so much to find fault with
and bo much to wish for in such a great
big, dirty city as ours that sometimes
the good, sweet, 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 waa
turned, nearly forty years ago, from a
factory into the pleasant school house
which it now is. This school, which waa
the first institution of the kind in Amer
ica, is not endowed and is maintained
entirely by voluntary contribution. Mrs.
Jonathan Storges is the first director,
and many familiar names are om the List
The matron of the school is Mist
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 by 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 the
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 j'oung 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 young 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 truth that the
other thought, that of the Working
Girls' clubs, emanated from this mis
sion, for Miss Grace H. 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 I
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 play,
and this takes up a proportionate part of
the school day. New York Tribune.
Nickel Armored Snips Can't Go Nortli.
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 use 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 full' 2 per
centT by the exposure to the cold. It is
stated that a ship of war built in the
temperate climate of ordinary steel and
clad with say 3,000 tons of nickel steei
armor would be destroyed by a visit to
the arctic regions, owing to the con
traction of the steel by the extreme low
temperature. New York Journal.

When the horse comes in from hla
work rub him all over from his ears to

possible. To make this wash take one
part alcohol, two parts pure witch ha. l
and three or four times as much noft
water as the combined quantity of al
cohol and witch hazel. Every mu.se le
should be rubbed thoroughly. Throw a
medium weight blanket over the liore

put the bandages on.
Use the same wash for the legs as for

Throw the blanket back from the ,
head and scrape out all wash that re
mains, most of it will have entered the ,
pores of the body; cover up his shoul- '
ders and scrape the rest of the body;
take a clean, dry rag and rub him all
over lightly, always rubbing with the
hair as much as possible; now put a
light hood on him and an extra blanket '
over his loins, and after looking at his
heels again walk him out for about five '
minutes, then bring him in, and should
he have broken out any while walking
scrape him again lightly, after which
give him another light rubbing for say
four or five minutes, when he should
again be walked for about ten minutes, ;

after which put on lighter blankets and ;

A Care far Laalmesa, '
A traveler in the course of. a morning ;
walk in Amsterdam came upon a group :
gathered around a well, into which a ,
strongly built man had just been let f
down. A pipe, whose mouth waa at the
top of the well, had been opened, and a
stream of water from it was flowing into
the well and gradually filling it. The
man below had quite enough to do. if ho
did not want to be drowned, to keep the '
water out by means of a pump which
was at the bottom of the well.
The traveler, pitying the man, asked
for an explanation of what seemed to be
a cruel, heartless joke.
"Sir," replied an old man standing
near, "that fellow is, as you see, healthy
and 6trong. I have myself offered him
work twenty times, but he always al
lows laziness to get the better of him,
and will make any excuse to beg his
bread from door to door, though nj
might easily earn it if he chose.
"We are now trying to make him real
ize that he must work. If he uses the
strength that i3 in his arms he will be
saved; if he lets them hang idle he will
be drowned. But look," continued the
old Dutchman as he went to the edge cf
the well, "the fellow finds out that h
has muscles already: in an hour we shall
let him out with better resolutions for
The traveler watched until the mai.
was liberated from his watery prison,
and felt sure that at least a temporary
cure had been effected. Youth's Com

The other day a politician of nation!
prominence sat in "the amen corner,"
as it is called, of the Fifth Avenue
hotel, where Republican big guns go iu
batteries. Across the corridor sat a
keen eyed, swarthy life insurance agent.
Presently a newspaper man, who uiaket
his headquarters at the up town hotel -entered
and nodded familiarly to both
politician and life insurance agent. They
were both under obligations to him.
In the most natural way in the world,
from talking to both at almost the same
time, he introduced them. Soon after
ward he 6trolled on. Now this particu
lar life insurance agent had been watch
ing for months for an opportunity of
making the acquaintance of this particu
lar politician. He was not slow to im
prove the opportunity, now that he had
it, and he wrote a L.j policy of $25,000
as the result. The next day the journal
ist who so innocently introduced the
hunter and his prey received by mail a
check for $400. Now this shows a great

mous profits life insurance agents must

When Did the "Glass Age" Begin?
So far as research has been able to de
termine, glass was in use 2,000 years be
fore the birth of Christ, and was even
then not in its infancy by any manner
of means. In the Slade collection at the
British museum there is the head of a
lion molded in glass, bearing the name
of an Egyptian king of the eleventh
dynasty. This is the oldest specimen cf
pure glass bearing anything like a date
now known to exist. The invention now
known as "bleezing," the mode of var
nishing pottery with a thin film of glass,
is believed to date back to the first Egyp
tian dynasty. Proof of this is found in
the pottery beads, glass glazed, found in
the tombs of the age above referred to.

Music That Is Seldom Sung.
The raising of an umbrella in the
theater is a bad omen for the business.
Where i3 the man of fearless heart who
will sing the music of "Macbeth" or
"Meg Merrilies" other than at the re

Should he attempt it he will be "sat

pany. Of all bad omens the singing of
that music is among the worst. Chicago
