Editor Licini the licht Only n few Days past copied Short article i Rota a Brook Lyn n. Y. Paper which expressed no email Surprise at the that people should starve to death in the City of new York. The Brooklyn paper May possess a scholarly and Able editor and a staff of wide awake reporters but its very expression of Surprise at a Alra Ost daily occurrence in new York shows let tvs familiarity with the crowded haunt of poverty reeking Wotli filth unde. Iti nose. The larger the City greater is the poverty pauperism want and suffering. Employment and work Are More difficult of obtainment on account of n the multitude needing work and this very Circum reduces Tho rate n to a pitiful stipend unhurt Unateny wage workers Haven account in Bank and no property t mortgage when the Wolf crosses the threshold of their rented hovels. Spoil of broken limb from any Accident or a loss of work Briu them face to face with want in it Grimes aspect because they hat no great store of provisions to a Back Money and no Redli once they fall behind hand they Cai Seldom out of debt As it require All their scant earnings to pay Ren and to provide Coal and food. Here in ban Antonio there is i vast Deal of actual want and suffer ing of which the Rich and Wel t do know nothing at All. The self re Are not destitute of de cent and allowable a willing and anxious to earn Thel daily bread in the sweat of the Are willing to seek work of any sort and the will Endeavor to procure Sinai Loans or to obtain credit of sums but they shrink from publicly advertising their object Pov Orty and putting themselves in Thi attitude of beggars soliciting alms nor Are they to be blamed for show ing this apart of honest Pride. Heal by it does them Honor. A poor Man asks a Small loan of who is Worth a Hundred thousand dollars and is Curtly Torii he is very hard up and cannot accommodate sneaks up to Byln nor another Rich Tellow and asks for Small loan and for answer is told to get work and not be bothering people. He goes through the entire Gamut of Rich and Well to do people and is put off and denied by All of them with a manner that causes their blood to Boll in their veins. When to is at the Point of starvation the press will pro claim the fact and Charity will be doled out Tojim in triblets. A poor woman goes around timidly seeking work or possibly a Small loan but everybody is Devilish hard run. Or has a to pay or Haa just paid his taxes or his water rates but several of these very hard run gentlemen god save the will probably Oit or to Purchase her virtue self respect and character. This is not the picture of a teeming Snoy heated by the desire to make a sensation. On the contrary it is the sad and painful experience of a num Ber of men and women in san an Tonio who Are neither tramps nor beg iras neither loafers nor dead beats but who would gladly be bread win ners if they could Only obtain work. When they Are about to starve to death Charity will go Forth a brass baud and drum up alms for them and the names of the alms givers will be published in the papers with a flourish of trumpets and they will forthwith set up for saints and beast of their charitable deeds. Charity in 1892 is a Humbug and a pompous Parade. It sleeps Aud slum Bers till people Are reduced to gnaw ing Bones and then Doles out its help Nurt advertises what it gives in the papers. Ben. Delivered in a forcible Aud impressive Wanner. The paper remarked that the chair Man stated the truth when he Greeley easily the Glrst of journalists it than dawned upon the lady that her Katolly princes was really the editor of the com Panion. A True Host Story. Her disappointment. A lady who was a great admirer of Horace Greeley went one evening to lecture. She had never seen her hero but was a constant Reader of his paper and had her own ideas As to How he would look and act. The chairman of the meeting de sired to air , and introduced the speaker in the following rather Vunie indefinite manner ladies and gentlemen you Wauie very near being disappointed this eve Ning As or. Greeley has been very ill and i Trust that a slight change of programme will be excused on this account. F As i know that you Are anxious for the lecture to begin i will Only detain you to say that i have the pleasure and Honor of introducing to you the facile Prince is of journalism. The lady waited to hear no More but went Home in disgust. Well my asked the hug band who was taking care of the baby during his wife s absence How did you like the i did t Stop to hear was the reply. Greeley was sick Aud they got another Man to take hib place who was such a queer looking old Guy that i would t waste my time listing to him sol came Back who was the Don t she answered still indignant at her disappoint ment. Somebody i never heard of before. His name was family Prin Ces. The lady still More disappointed the next Day when she discovered in the paper a Jong account of Greeley s Jecture which the Grest editor although feeling quite ill had what the phantom or Beech Hill proved to lie after an in Vest Kusion. About a mile beyond the Beech Hill stood Squire Mcdonald s store and one dreary night in late autumn Thore came to bitter first Eory o More and then Baudy hug John and finally Aleo Gillies All in a High state of excitement and asserting with much positiveness that they had seen the ghost on Beech Hill. Now the Squire was As shrewd hard headed and in superstitious a Scotchman As Ever traded Tea for butter or sugar for eggs and he had no Faith in the Beech Hill guest than in the Man in the Moon. But this time the testimony of the terrified witnesses happened to agree remarkably. Tho ghost had appeared to All in precisely the same form namely As a White shapeless thing that rolled along the ground utter ing shrill threat Fng girl Ken. The matter was surely Worth looking into. Hark be said the Squire at last i believe you re nothing better than a parcel of foolish boys and to prove it i la go up to the Beech Hill myself and see what it is that has come so nigh scaring the life out of thus speaking he got his coat and hat and calling upon them to follow set off Tor the scene of the ghost s walk. Eory Aud Sandy and Alec would much rather have been excused but Pride overcame their timidity Aud they followed in their leaders track. Hardly had they reached the foot of the Hill than Tho shrieks they had heard before came to their ears. There it is exclaimed Eory with trembling Lupe. Can be not hear it to be sure i responded the Squire and i m going to see what it is. Come along. The distance Between the Doughty Squire and his followers increased As ii went on while the shrieks grew stronger with each Forward step. When about the Middle of the is cont he saw the ghost. It was As he men had reported a White shape Ess thing rolling upon the ground and from it undoubtedly came the piercing cribs which had proved so alarming. Going straight up to the thing the lure touched it with his foot then Bent Down to feel it with his hand my then burst out into a Roar of Aughter that at first startled the free Farmers almost As much As the Host s shrieks. Come he shouted. Come Here Aud see what your ghost i. In a hesitating Way Thoy Drew near and examined Tho cause of their Bright.
