IMPERFECT IDEAS OF CHARITY.
A good many finely epun theories
with reference to the "problem of the
pnor" aire constantly promulgated by
students of sociological questions.
While it is a fet that thousands of
dollars are yearly frittered away in
schemes of indiscriminate almsgiving
that are utterly without system or
plan, this fact should not be all wed to
act as a deterrent influence against
yielding to the impulses of benevol
ence. The submerged tenth presents
a condition and not a theory. The
problem thut confronts the charity
agencies of Chicago at the beginning
of every wiDter is how to raise the
means necessary to feed the hungry
and alleviate the sufferings of the un
fortunate. As long as the human
mind is imperfect and the human un
derstanding is not always equal to the
generous impulses of the heart our ma
chinery for the disbursement of alms
will be more or less defective and
much money will bo diverted from
proper channels, says the Chicago
Whiie tiie imperfect character of
our machinery for supplying the phy
sical necessities of the poor relieves no
one from aceitain measure of respon
sibility for the condition of the unfor
tunate, the observations of Dr. Ayres
in his ad-?iess before the Society of
Ethical Culture are worthy of stud
ious attention in that they show how
almsgiving may bo made to confer
.dditional and more permanent bene
fits upon the objects of charitable en
deavor. To make the gift a material charity
of real permanent value to the recip
ient there must go along with it the
gift of personal interest and the de
velopment of kindly relationships.
Thesociil adjustment that is neces
sary to improve the condition of the
poor depends upon good will and
friendly co-operation. A system of
benevolence that does not include edu
cation and healthful social amusement
and recreation is incomplete and im
perfect. The disbursement of things
to gratify material wants accompanied
and moral condition of the beneficia
ries and no evidences of friendly in
quiry into the causes of their poverty
is a charity scheme that begets pau
perism. The benevolent machinery that sat
isfies itself with the mere distribution
of physical necessities is cold and un
feeling and will never eradicate the
causes of pauperism.
The federal supreme court has
found the court of the eastern district
of Wisconsin to have jurisdiction over
tho Northern Pacific railroad, in the
hands of receivers. This is new law
and it may logically follow that the
court of the Nebraska district bo given
control of ali Union Pacific lines and
regarded as the court of primary ad
ministration. In that event tlie in
direct benefit accruing . to Omaha
would be great, as the next step would
ba to regain control of branch lines of
the Union Pacific for which separate
receivers have been appointed. Bee.
The great soldier-statesman, who

The board of trade meeting last
evening was more largely attended
than usual"and quite an interest was
evinced in tho sugar question. There
is little doubt but what the growing of
sugar beets in this state is to be one
of our greatest industries, and if all
that is said of tho new evaporation
process for extracting the sacharine
properties of the beets is true, the
matter of locating a factory of that
kind here is easily done. The ma
chinery in a refiuery such as they
have at Norfolk costs a fortune, while
with the evaporation process the cost
is comparatively s'tight. The product,
however, would have to be shipped to
a refinery before it would be in shape
The Kansas democrats and populists
are endeavoring to get together for
the purpose of taking the state away
from the republicans, though a ma
jority of the populist leaders do not
favor the scheme, as they oppose fusion
for the reason that it is difficult to
blend the principles of the populists
with those of the democrats, which is
no doubt true, or with anything else
for that matter. Some of the demo
crats object to fusion as it would be
detrimental to party organization,
while party princiulcs are not consid
ered any farther than it would take
from the republicans tho state. It is
possib'e that they may fuse, but as it

is an enormous improvement in tele

marine cables in the same time that
twenty words can be sent now.
The invention, the doctor claimed,
would allow of cabling fifty words at a
cost of five cents. IIo dwelt upon the
influence that the invention would
have upon the newspaper of the future,

royalties, to reserve all rights as far

Dot yet prepared diagrams or experi

lined it mentally.
"I would have a pmall storage bat
tery worn in a belt," he said, "with
small copper wires running from it up
through the sleeves and connected with
each hand on tho great or middle linger
with a copper ring the thumb can reach
in the palm of tho hand. When the
thumb touched the ring, an electrical
current would discharge four batteries
loaded with ball behind and in front.
This discharge could take place when
the hands wcro being held under the
threat of an armed robber.
"Tho ring should be placed lioyond
the reach of the thumb excoptinca.es
of emergency, so tho thumb will i;evr
discharge the battery accidentally."
Mr. Carroll is not a practical electri
cian or mechanic, being an actor ly

ried cm the belt, nor is bo adverse to
considering tho advisability of substi

out of sight everything but the tactical
advantage of the lonely pedestrian at

clasped from behind by tho lurking gar
roter. Thus he has not yet figured oiu
how a slim young man is to aoid as
suming Falstallian dimensions when he
braces storage batteries and arsenals
around his waist.
Nor does he forecast the possibly trag
ical consequences that might m i:ie day
result from the clasp- of a loving hnnrt

the potential copper appurtenances he
describes, making inadvertent electrical
contact and producing a catastrophe
