A STRANGE WORLD
"Henry Jirncst, nn aged cripple.
who tried to end his life Monday
night by leaping into the river from
the Uurnsidc bridge, was convicted
of disorderly conduct yesterday
before Municipal Judge Hemiett,
and was sentenced to ten days on
the rock pile. Krncst has been
earning a precarious living by sell
ing shoestrings 011 the street cor
ners. He became weary of the
work on Monday and tried to cud
it for all time. The men of the
United States gunboat Yorktown
dragged him from the river before
lie was seriously injured."
The alxvc extract taken from
n Portland daily pa)cr Inst week
would lead one to believe that the
milk of human kindness had de
parted from that city, yet thou
sands of dollars have been raised to
assist a young actress who was un
fortunate enough to have her two
legs amputated owing to her being
run down by n railroad train, which
nlso proves the people of Portland
and vicinity arc generous enough
in some instances. On one hand
wc have an old mnti, crippled, try
ing to ckc out a miserable existence
by selling shoe strings, rather than
go to a county home. I)ccoiulng
discouraged and despondent he tries
to put an end to his life. Upon
being rescued, he is sentenced to
ten days 011 the rock pile by an un
feeling judge. Whnt nn inspiring
picture it must make to sec this
poor old cripple pathetically at
tempting to do a day's work at
pounding rock. Shouldn't we be
proud of such a judge who would
sentence a man in this condition to
the rock pile nud the community
that would permit such an outrage
to be perpetrated? If he should be
punished nt nil, why not send
him to jail, where he would be fed
and housed nud given n chance to
rest up for a short period nt least,
On the other hand wc linvc nil

charming. Unfortunate, it is true,
yet she has a husband living and
Want the Lid Put on.
A petition was presented to the
city council Tuesday night praying
that moving picture shows, poof
rooms and card rooms be ordered
closed on Stiudays. The petition
averred that these places were run
for gain, were demoralizing and n
desecration of the day. The mat
ter was referred to the license com
mittee, and what disposition will be
mr.de of it remains to be seen. The
friends qf these establishments
claim that the petition is discrimi
nating In its character, and there
fore, cannot be granted. Cigar
stands, drug stores, ice cream and
confectionery stores, and even the
contribution box on Sundays, they
say, arc being run for gaiu, and
that if one place is closed, by the
same token all places should receive
like treatment. The church cle
ment, by which the petition was
signed, claim that the resorts men
tioned interfere with attendance at
divine worship, and attract the
younger folks away. Whereas, if
these places were closed they be
lieve the youth would be more sus
ceptible to religious influence. It
11U depends on the angle from
which otic views the situation, and
whether closing would have the
effect the church clement expects
and hopes It would have is a
mooted question, The patrons of
the show and pool room claim they
will not be driven into church by
this method, while the church
members believe they can be led in
that direction if temptation to go to
these places is removed. It is up
to the license committee to settle

The sympathy and generosity 0f tt
large city arc showered upon her,
from which we do not desire to de
tract. It is right that this should
be, ami we ure glad it is so. Hut
at the same time .should not the
sympathy and generosity
same city be extended to the oor
old cripple, ploddiug along without
a ray of hope or encouragement,
weary of life ami carrying a burden
almost greater than he can bear?
On one hund we have a city joitr
ing out its generosity uou an un
fortunate, but popular and clever
young uctrcss. On the other hand
the same city permitting a poor old
cripple to be consigned to the tock
pile without a helping hund, a
cheering word or n crumb of com
fort Iteing extended toward him.
Surely there is something wrong.
We give thousands of doltors to
foreign missions arid believe we
have done our duty. Yet time and
again, right at our own doors, are
poor cripples and worn out ami dis.
couraged individuals beintr turned
away without assistance or without

tian world this is, how cold and
unfeeling. Yet we like to tell of
what Portland has douc for an uu
fortuuate young lady in her hour
of misfortune, while the poor, dis
couraged' old cripple is feebly
pounding away at the rock pile,
Alice Lougworth is making quite
a name for herself as a cigarette
fiend, aud many of the geutler sex
are deploriug her pernicious habit.
Mrs. Lougworth has been iu the
limelight for so long that she is
loath to leave it, and iu order to
keep there she is even willing to
smoke cigarettes in public. Her
example iu this respect will not
likely beemulated to any great de
gree, despite the fears of a number
of agitated ladies who are just now
