The Frenchman eats almost twice as
much as the American, Englishman and
German. He also likes meat, consuming
about a pound a day.
The South American has developed a
sweet tooth. He likes bonbons better than
hot tamales when he can get them. He
was paid Just before his ship sailed, and
what he did with his money could easily
be guessed when it was observed that a
small-sized confectionery store had been
added to the supplies.
"Give a South American sailor a box of
bonbonst" said a merchant who 'has often
como in contact with the tars from the
Houth, "and he'll do more for you than
could be expected from an Eskimo who Is

They drink a lot of coffee, those Bouth
Americans. So do the North Americans,
the French and the Germans. But not so
with the English. Only sixty pounds of
coffee aboard II. M. S. Inflexible . during
the month of September, which was Just
two pounds a day for 7TO men. During
the same period there were 668 pounds of
tea consumed and 670 pounds of chocolate.
The Americans each drink one-eighth, of
a pound of coffee a day. They also drink
as much tea and chocolate as the English.
They excell particularly in the meat line.
Here Is an excerpt from the official table
of ration components, which shows that
their tastes are not confined to any one
kind of meat: '
Fresh beef, beef lver, beef hearts, fish,
hamburger steak, mutton, pork loins, pork

The American tar lias acquired that
dreadful Coney Island habit of devouring
frankfurters, too. He differs from the
German In that be persists In having them
red hot. On holidays aboard the American
ships out at sea It Is not uncommon, say
the officers, to see an American tar hold
ing a frankfurter in one hand and a sau
cer of ice cream In the other. And if you
tell him that sort of mixture is likely to
play havoc with his digestion, he'll come
back at you with the retort that "it's fit

a vote of thanks for ' the excellent work
she has done since coming to Omaha.
Good Report from Secretary.
Some Interesting facts and figures were
presented in the first annual report of
Miss Jontx. The report shows that a deficit
of $677, existing from the previous year, has
been wiped out, that expenses to the
amount of 3,210.35 have been met and
that there Is a balance in the treasury
October 1 of JM.48.
Tho Income amounted to 3,973.52, of which
all was donated except $78. returned by
people who helped temporarily., Kent was
paid for needy families to the amount, of
$440.36. and transportation was furnished
to the amount of $55.63 for sixty Individuals.
The vacant lot gardening cost $33.90 and
.Of, the 1,604 families helped during the
year 606 were old ones on the list of the
organised and 898 were new. The total
number of cases handled was 3,366 and
1.436 calls were made. The applicants
calling at the office numbered 1,390.
"What Has Ileea Done.
'During the ten months of Miss Jonts's
incumbency much work has been accom
plished. Through her efforts all the chari
table organizations of the city, of every
denomination, were federated, with the re
sult of greatly increased efficiency. The
expense of relief work baa been lessened
by this closer organization! A bill was
pushed through the legislature to compel
the support of families by those properly
ohargeable with such support A legal aid
department has been established, to which
many local lawyers give their assistance
without pay, and great benefit has resulted
to many people who knew not where to
turn for competent advice. ' Vacant lot
gardening was Initiated the past summer,
with good results far beyond the expecta
tions of the promoters, and next year this
feature of the work Is expected to develop
into a broadly helpful proposition. It
teaches self-reliance and has stirred ambi
tion for self-help In many people who were
discouraged and almost ready to give up.
Need for Social Workers.
The monthly conferences of ail the char
itable organizations, represented by dele
gates have proved to be well worth while,
says Miss J on is. From them and from
the Increased growth and needs of the
work a training school for social workers
Is developing in Omaha.
"We are taking these workers from the
local field," said Miss Jontz, "and we are
hopeful that enough will offer themselves
and that we ahull have what assistance is
needed to give them a very fair measure
of training, so they can assist in effective
fashion. The new Industrial home, at 1231
Park Wilde avenue, will also be of great
value In our work. It is now being fitted
up, as already noted in The Bee, and for
the present mill be la charge of Mr. and
Mrs. E. D. Gepson. That this department
will develop Into a leading feature of our
work we feel very confident.
"Our work in this city and in South
Omaha, and among the colored people, has
been growing so rapidly that we need vol
unteer workers badly, and we are in hopes
that those who can give us some of their
time for - social and preventive work will
come forward to assist."
Delea-ates' Reports Heard. ,
Rabbi Cohn, Mrs. Harriet H. Heller and
Miss Jontx gave interesting accounts of
the papers read and the action taken at
the national conference In Buffalo, in June.
They held the close attention of their
coufcres throughout their recitals.
Miss Jontz also went into detail about
the work being done at the new Industrial
home, and asked all present to make known
the fact that the home needs mattresses
and furniture, as well as coal. "I believe
that If charitable people will search their
attacks and look over their spare furni
ture," said Miss Jontz, "we can hWve here

where needy men . and women can find
work, but also where friendless women
can have decent shelter and care tem

Noted American Minstrel Paaaoaa for
His Diamond Head.
Tha cabled announcement of Oeorga W.
Moore's death gives him six years more of
life than a abort biography of htm pub
llshed In the seventies in T. Allston
Brown's "History of the American Stage."
The dispatch says he was 90 years old,
but In this old biography his birth date
Is placed on March 27, 1823; this would
make him 84 years eld. As his years were
ripe In either case and he had been before
the public as an entertainer as long ago
as 1M1, It would not be surprising If
some of his neighbors and friends made
him out older than he really was.
Moore was born In Mulberry street. In
New York City. At 12 years old he was
so small that he was spoken of as a
recond Tom Thumb and was dubbed "the
little pony" possibly as a "pony edition"
of General Thumb. The name stuck to
him, and even In the days of his widest
notoriety as an "Ethiopian comedian" he

quitting the sawdust and attaching him
self to a traveling theatrical company. He
remained for several years at this busi
ness and made a reputation as a panto
mlrnlst. He was at one time with Fran
conl's Hlpol drome. His burnt-cork debut
was made In 1844 at the Half Way house,
In Broadway. He went to London to
join the "Christy's" in 1S50 and stayed
there for ten years, returning here in
1S69 for a visit to friends and relatives.
After several weeks he went back again
to London, and thereafter his home was
In England, although he made several
visits to this country. On one occasion or
moro he came over here with his son-in-law,
Charley Mitchell, the pugilist.
He prospered In England and In 1870
was comanager with Crocker of the Christy
minstrels at St. James' hall. He was also
the founder of the Moore-Burgess min
strels. He was an lrasclBle chap at times
and once while on a visit here got into
a scrap with a street car conductor, whom
he punched so hard after the conductor
had struck him that, aa he put It, he
made a spectacle of him by causing his
nose to bleed. He was arrested for this,
and thought that It was a great shame to
get Into court for a little thing like that
His son-in-law, Mitchell, was on the car
on this occasion and was laughing at him
while he was having the argument with
the eonducWf, who had objected to the
way In which Moore was carrying on some
conversation and told him that be couldn't

and two separate watch charms as big as
$10 gold pieces. He liked diamonds and
sometimes carried around with him stones
worth $1,000 to $2,500 apiece. He said that
he hod received one diamond ring from
the prince of Wales (Edward VII) and
that he was a friend of the prince. "I
am the only one In London," he said here
once, "who can dine with a lord, drink
with an aristocrat talk to a mechanic
and go Into a thieves' den and be cor
dially received by all. How? Well. I
never allow any talking in my place on
these points religion, nationalities or pon

ORIGIN OF FAMOUS SONGS
"The Ninety and Nine" Clearly the
, Result of a Sodden. In
The religious faiths of the world have
produced many remarkable and beautiful
lyrics, such aa Newman's "Lead, Kindly
Light," the "Neater, My God, to Thee,'
of Sarah Flower Adams, and Cowper's
"God Moves in a Mysterious Way." Many
of these were written under peculiarly dra
matic circumstances, as was particularly
the case with those by Cowper and John
Henry Newman alluded to above.
But wide as has been their use and their
application among Christians of all creeds
and sects, there Is one hymn that over
shadows all others, whether we consider
its widespread popularity or Its wanderful
evangelistic power. This . hymn is "The
Ninety and Nine," by the late Ira D. San
key, long the musical associate of Dwight
L. Moody. These two men together were
the greatest soul winners ever known, and
the success of their united work was un
doubtedly largely traceable to Mr. Sankey's
songs In general, and to "The Ninety and
Nine" in particular. Its unique origin has
often been described, but will bear repeti
tion. "When leaving Glasgow for Edinburgh
with Mr. Moody, Mr. Hankey bought a
penny religious paper,
tney rode on the cars, pis eye fell upon a
few verses In the corner of the page. One
day they had an unusually impressive
meeting In Edinburgh, In which Dr. Bonar
had spoken on "The Good Shepherd." At
the close of the address Mr. Moody beck
oned to his partner to sing something ap
propriate. "At first he could think of nothing but
the Twenty-third Psalm, but that he had
sung so often; his second thought was to
sing the verses he had found in the paper,
but how could it be done when he had no
tune for them? Then a thought came to
sing the verses he had found in the paper,
anyway. He put the verses before him,
touched the keys of the organ, and sang,
not knowing where he was going to coma
out He finished the first verse amid pro
found silence. He took a lone breath and

wondered If he could sing the second the
same way. He tried It and succeeded. After
that It was easy to sing It. When he fin
ished the hymn the meeting was all broken
down throngs were crying and ministers
were sobbing all around him."
Hundreds were converted then and there,
while In subsequent years other thousands
of souls were gathered In through the sing
ing of "The Ninety and Nine."
Glancing over It as4- Clearly the song was the result of a sud
den Inspiration so far as Its musical set
ting was concerned, and It may be doubted
If there was ever a similar case of spon
taneous and subsequently successful com
position. "The Ninety and Nine" literally sang its
way around the world. The simple para
phrase of the scripture parable appeals to
"all, sorts and conditions of men," and the
world's hymnology Is the richer for that
