Kiist Htnto tmir Providing For Their
Cnre, Mnlntcnnnco and Education.
During the sessions of thti Inst
Legislature no bill created ruoro In
terest or enthusiasm than that
known ns the Blind Baby 13111. In
troduced In the Assembly by Assom
'blyman Speaker, of St. Lawrence
county, anil In the Scnato by Sena
tor Coats of Franklin county.
Not long ngo, this paper publish
ed a short Item stating that tho only
Institution In the United States giv
ing proper caro to blind babies from
tho day they aro blinded, was estab
lished and Is maintained by tho In
ternational Sunshine Society, a phil
anthropic nowspapor association, of
which .Mrs. Cynthia Westovcr Alden,
writer and publisher, Is president
general. 'Now the Catholic Institute
will caro for tho Catholic hllnd.
Several years ago, Mrs. Alden, In
tho rounds of her nowspapor work,
discovered that there was no pro
vision for blind babies in the State
of Now York under tho ngo of eight
years; that is, tho Commissioner of
Education could not appoint a blind
child under eight to any educational
institution for caro.
On further investigation sho
learned that children blinded In In
fancy could not live to the ago of
eight without special caro and not
becomo hopelessly idiotic or feeble
minded; that children of tho poor
blinded In early infancy were rele
gated to the Idiot departments or
public Institutions, or to the poor
house in county districts, where
they picked their eyes with their
lingers, bumped their heads against
the wrll, pounded themselves with
their little lists, until some injury
would result In the baby dying. Or,
if the child lived, It met a worse
fate mental blindness. The queer
actions of the child led tho general
public to jump at tho conclusion that
It was an idiot, when it was simply a
little soul trying to find Itself, and
no friendly hand extended In help.
Little Hacnel was taken from
Randall's Island when a tiny little
thing, where sho had ibeen sent 'be
cause of having had spinal menin
gitis, also measles, which left her
blind. From tho hospital thero sho
was taken by tho International Sun
shine Society and put with other do
pendent blind children that could
be collected, all thrown away by the
public as not worth saving.
Eighty-two of these little folks
were given the best possible nursing
under graduate nurses, the best
training under graduate kindergart
ners. with tho result that only two
failed to respond mentally one was
a little boy who had bumped his
head against the wall until he got
it out of shape.
The next thing was to get the
world to understand that it should
at least give its blind babies tho
care that it was giving dumb ani
mals. The Society got a bill
through the Legislature in 1908
which provided for the dependent
New York City children. That was
four years ago. Hut the blind bab
ies outside of the city had no pro
tection, so the Seaker-Coats bill just
signed by Governor Disc gives tho
State Commissioner of Education
power to see that blind children aro
educated and cared for from the
day they are blinded, appointed, not
committed, to an institution for
Little Rachel is only one of eigh
ty or more children who have 'been
educated in the Blind Rabies' Homo,
demonstrating the fact that they
needed only care to prove them
selves bright, normal, healthy
Tho story of Rachel Askenas, ten
years old and blind, and how she
lobbied for the Blind Babies' Bill
probably has no parallel In Interest
and sentiment in the annals of tho
State Legislature.
It appealed with additional force
to the people of Troy for the reason
that a Trojan, Seymur Van Sant
voord, the Governor's legal adviser,
figured consplcuusly in the stops
that marked tho progress of the
measure. In fact, tho little blind
girl selected Mr. Van Santvoord as
her special champion, and a Btrong
attachment sprang up between them,

photographs sent to him by Rachel
from time to time that he values

Every country newspaper publish
er has more or less experience with
the tramp printer who comes from
no one knows where and leaves Just
as suddenly when the roving spirit
again .seizes him.
Marguorito Miller, associate editor
ot the Rochester (Ind.) Daily Re
publican, philosophizes on this mys
terious clas.- of wandering mortals
in a recent issue as follows:
"There Is no greater mystery than
that of ifc. and nnnn more inconi-,
prehenslble than man. Why one is1
born to wealth, another to poverty
and another to mental greatness, no
system of theology has yot explain
ed or philosophy disclosed to the
satisfaction of the devotees thereof.
Why do some rlso to great heights
of mental, financial and perhaps
spiritual progress without apparent
effort, another go down In dofeat
lighting their destiny overy Inch of
the way. whllo another drifts up and
down as clrcumstanres forco or fancy
dictates. Can all men bo good men
in splto of birth or environment?
Aro men bad becauso thoy must, or
drift becauso it Is their lot to drift?
From time to tlmo ono of this latter
class visits this print shop, asking
for a job, nnd thoy of all men make
ono ponder on tho mystery of llfo.
Usually tho hobo printer arrives
dirty, unkempt, ragged and palo but
never discouraged or sullen. Ho
works quietly and every move counts
Ho can explain any part of tho work
if asked; ho is a living dictionary
and encyclopedia combined, and af
ter working hours, if ho can bo In
duced to talk, you find ho Is versod
not only In tho events of tho day,
but is also a student ot history and
In close touch with tho world's groat
poets, great authors and talks with
equal grace of tho drama, music or
art. And thero ho Bits In his filthy
rags, a genius in mind, a master In
Intellect, a purveyor of knowledgo
far superior to thoso who employ
him. Nameless ho cornea and name
less ho goes, making no apology for
his appoarnnco, asking no favors, un
obtrusive, yot affaiblo and kind. No
douibt but he has a besetting etn,
but why has ho? Tho Christian
would say ho needs conversion, tho
mental scientist would say ho must
strengthen his will whllo theosophy
declares ho is following tho star of
his destiny, and can rlso only
through rebirth. Who Is right?
Religion has not solved tho problem
or lessened crlmo. Tho greatest
crimes, carefully plannod, cold
blooded murders, aro committed
among tho clorgy and highly educat
ed, thoroforo education will not re
move penal institutions or poverty,
so the only thing that remains is for
tho man to study himself and learn
tho why of his own naturo and
learning, his future will tako caro of
Religious Toleration In Japan.
Very significant, as an indication
of tho increasing friendliness with
which tho ancient East now views
Christianity, was tho rccont confer
ence of religions held in Tokio, Ja
pan, Kays tho Christian Herald. It
was tho first occasion on which
Christianity was formally and ofll
clally recognized In that country as
entitled to equal rights and privi
leges with Buddhism and Shlntolsm.
At tho conference were fifty-six
Buddhists, thirteen Shlntolsts and
seven Christians (tho latter repre
senting .Methodist, Presbyterian,
Baptist. Congregational, Episcopal,
Catholic and Greek churches), and
the Imperial government was repre
sented by four members of the cabi
net and several chiefs of bureaus.
It was a very dignified and exclusive
assemblage and no outsiders were
admitted. All the delegates united
In a joint resolution favoring co-operation
in politics, education and re
ligion for the Improvement of social
and moral conditions and tho de
velopment of civili7ation, " each re
ligion, however, strictly observing
its own provinrp of operations."
Harmonious relations wero declared
to be the nation's prosperity." It
would bo dllllcult to over-estimate
tho Importance of this recognition of
the Christian faith in .1 country
where it has been under a ban. It
will greatly assist In removing tho
prejudice which has existed even
among the more intelligent Japanese,
for government approval goes a long
way in Japan. What the emperor
and his ministers sanction or permit,
no loyal son of Nippon will call in
question. Hence great results may
flow from tho conference, which
should mark tho beginning of a
new forward movement in Christian
work in that country.

" Tho question Is often asked as
to why our natlvo birds aro becom
lug rare, and it is often answered
by the absurd statement that it is
because women aro uslnc them for
millinery purposes," said Prof. H
ouriace, state zoologist. In an
interview In his ofllco at Harrlsburg
recently, lie continued
The chief reasons why birds arn
becoming rare aro that their natlvo
haunts and places of concealment
are gradually being destroyed, and
ineir natural roou is disappearing,
mis is particularly truo or many
species 01 oirus that teed upon wild
iruus 01 various Kinds. It Is really
unbelievable by many persons ns to
what a largo number of wild seeds
and fruits aro taken as food bv
birds. For example the seeds of
tho poison Ivy would never bo
thought odlblo 'by mankind, yet sev
eral species of hlrds aro known to
eat them.
" In tho efforts to clean tin thick.
ots and fonco rows tho various kinds
of shrubs, hushes, vines and trees
tnat rurnlsh food for birds at differ
ent times of tho year havo been de
stroyed, and It Is but natural that
theso feathered creatures will not
continue to llvo In abundanco In re
gions whoro their food Is scarce.
About all that Is necessary to ro
storo tho blrdB, especially of many
interesting kinds, Is to bo suro that
thoy aro provided with natural food
and adequate protection.
"To provide tho hirds with rood
it Is best to arrango that this bo
dono by natural moans, and wo in
turn must plant for them thoso
plants which will furnish thorn tholr
most deslrod fruits. Among theso
aro such as tho following: June
borry, shad berry or aorvlco borry,
scientifically known as nmalanchlor,
tho mulberries (both English and
Jtusslan), early sweet varieties of
strawborrlcs, sweot early cherries
(like tho Governor wood), haw
thornc, viburnum, first grape, fox
grape, grcenhrler, Juniper or cedar
apple, holly,, barberry, mountain
ash, English Ivy, Vlrglnln creeper or
Ilvc-leafed Ivy nnd hackborry.
" Theso aro among tho plnntB that
furnish natural food for the birds
during the cntlro year, oven while
tho snows lay deep on tho ground
'birds of Bovoral kinds will feast up
on tho grapes which thoy seek on tho
wild grapo vines, and In tho spring
time ns tho robins nnd other birds
end tholr wearying flight from tho
South, thoy will quickly bo able to
find tho berries of tho Ivy on somo
old wall, or tho hardened berries of
tho hackborry treo still clinging to
the trees where thoy grew nnd ripen
ed last summer.
" Such a list of food plants as giv
en nbove Is Naturo's menu served In
courses, giving food that will lie
taken hy tho birds of various Tdnils
during tho entire year. Among the
birds that have been known to feed
upon the fruits of tho plants men
tioned aro such as tho follwing:
Cuckoos, bluebirds, flycatchers, 'blue
jays, bobolink, brown thrasher, cat
bird, cedarbird, gracklo or black
bird, kingbird, downy woodpecker,
hairy woodpecker, and wood thrush."
How to Destroy .Mosquitoes
Prevent tho mosquito and tho fly
from breeding and you will put an
end to both. Flies breed principally
In decayed flesh and manure. They
like tho dirty alleys where garbage
and refuse are scattered about.
Keep your streets and your back
yards clean and you will deprive tho
lly of Its breeding places and it
will cease to multiply.
Tho mosquito breeds in stagnant
water. The rusty old cans that, half
filled with water, lie on dump heaps
and in back alleys are what the mos
quito likes. Tho barrels of rain wa
ter that stand under the eaves 01
some houses, tho stagnant pools in
meadows, swamps all of theso aro
excellent breeding places for the
The varieties of this Insect that
infest this part of tho country will
not, as a rule, breed In running wa
ter. Thoroforo drain your swamps
and stagnant pools. If you can't
drain them pour crude oil over them.
This will kill the young of tho mos
quito. Clean up your towns. Don't
allow cans and barrels to Ho about
where they can collect rain water.
A clean town will 'bo Hyless and
mosquitoless. Don't give either of
these pests a chance to "breed and
you will not bo troubled by them.

Locomotive engineers evidently
believe that to him that hath tho
highest wages should bo given the
greatest increase. But few peoplo
realize how well these men are paid
in comparison with other workers
possessing similar skill and training.
Tho Interstate Commerce Commis
sion reports show that In 1910 tho
average daily pay of the enginemen
was 4.55, as compared with ?3.83 in
1902; and the Bureau of 'Railway
Economics shows that their compen
sation made a further advance of
5.2 In 1911. thus raising it to
$4.78. Just how many days per
year the men work it Is Impossible
to say, but wo have hero shown
their yearly compensation figured at
300 days In comparison with the av
erage annual pay of other male
laborers in the United States.
This average of other laborers Is
based upon the wage payments of
tho Steel Corporation, together with
statistics published iby the Labor
Department and the Census Bureau:

1907 1,290
1904 1,230
NOTE Tho enginemen's pay has
Increased 24.5 , while that of oth
er workmen has Increased 20.9.
Chief Stone has been quoted as
saying that it is tlmo to teach tho
public tho lesson that freight rates
should bo advanced In order to per
mit tho payment of higher wages.
Tho public, however, by which is
meant tho great mass of our work
ing population, is very poorly paid
ns compared with engineers, and Is
In no position to mako further con
tributions to tho latter through tho
payment of higher freight rates.
Moreover, tho enginemen are em
ployes nnd not partners, and what
thoy should bo paid has nothing to
do with either freight rates or net
earnings, and Is purely a question of
what they aro worth. Indeed, were
thoy to base tholr argument upon not
earnings, thoy would apply for a re
duction of pay, since tho railroads
are now earning only about 4.58
on their capitalization, as compared
with 5.54 In 1907 and 5.38 in

The manner In which boys of tho

is shown by the fact that in tho last
nine weeks, 22,500 boys havo re
ceived badges from the headquarters
of tho Boy Scouts of America. Jas.
E. West, Chief Scout Executive of
tho Boy Scouts of America, who
mado this announcement points out
that in other words tho average has
been about 2,500 badges a week. Of
tho total number 1 7,000 boys won
Tenderfoot badges, 4,500 won Sec
ond Class Scout badges and 1,000,
First Class badges.
Tho number of Tenderfoot badges
awarded to the boys shows that In
tho last nine weeks tho boys through
out the country havo been qualifying
as Tenderfeet, which Is the first
state of scouting, at tho rate of about
2,000 a week. Of course, tho boys
who got Second Class and First
Class scout badges have been engag
ing in scouting activities for several
months, and already havo obtained
their Tenderfoot badges. In tho last
nine weeks scoutmasters or tho men
who have charge of the troops of
boy scouts have been Joining tho
scout movement at the rate of about
90 a week. There aro about 24 boys
in a patrol so that It is clear that the
applications for commissions as
scoutmasters and the orders of the
boys for badges are in about tho
same ratio.
Reports coming into National

the continued growth of tho scout
movement. In Philadelphia, Leo T.
