"In Paris, as in London, and in fact
in every great city, the people ivho
patronize the night refuges are of
every occupation and almost of every
class," sa3 the London News. "One
refuge received in the year 980 work
women, 750 chambermaids, and after
that, in their order, cooks, general
servants, governesses (these sent only
a contingent of twenty), lady com'
panions (five), and ' persons for
merly having money in the funds'
(two) this out of a total of nearly
3,500 picked up and cared for in the
one asylum alone. This establish
ment belongs to an association of
a mixed religious and philanthropic
character. Then comes the Societe
Philanthropique, which is purely re
ligious, and which opens refuges for
women under the management of
the Sisters of Charity. This is called
the 'work of the hospitality of labor,'
and its most considerable establish
ment, or, perhaps, the only one at
present, is a house opened atAnteuil
at the beginning of this year. Al
though the police find none of the
money, they cannot exactly keep
their hands but of the management,
and they insist on having a register
kept, just as though the place were
an ordinary lodging-house. How
ever, this is not allowed to become
an ovcuse for a too searching inqui
sition. The applicants for admission
give j- what answers they like,
and wi.jit answers they sometimes
do give ilaxime du Champ will tell
us. Many of them have nothing but
soubriquets, or do not choose to
have any other. 'What is your
name?' They call me La Chiffon
nette." 'That is not a name.'
' Well, I have no other name.'
'What is your family name?' 'I
don't know.' 'Where is your
father? Where is your mother?' 'I
don't know.' 'Did you ever know
them?' 'Never.' 'Who takes care
of you?' 'Nobody.' 'Where do you
live?' 'Nowhere.' In one case a
young girl was asked : 'Did 3'ou ever
hear of any one sneak of God?'
'God?' she said, 'on, yes, an old
man with a long beard.' The ar
rangements here at Autenil are of
the simplest. There is & big reception-room,
with benches and tables,
and with a few religious pictures for
its sole ornament; a bath-room be
yond, and a disinfecting chamber for
clothing, with a wardrobe of cast-off
clothes given by the charitable to
supply some of the miserable creat
ures with a new outfit. The rags, once
off, are often quite unfit to put on
again, and, in fact, cannot be put on.
Some of the inmates look on the
bath as quite a penal infliction, or
refuse to take it because they are
'not ill.' But, as in the English cas
ual wards, all are tubbed remorse
lessly, whether they like it or not.
A good deal of delicacy is shown in
dealing with some of the applicants.
Whatever their ago or status, they
are all termed 'madame,' a title in
tended to cover every trace of irreg
ularity in their past life. To call
some mademoiselle might lead to
awkward revelations when, as it
often happens, they bring their babies
with them. Tho Sisters go even fur
ther, and when a mother is unpro
vided with tho marriage ring they
give her one of brass, so as to put
her, as far as appearances go, on a
footing with the best in this hetero
genous societj. The house at Au
tcuil is more than a temporary ref
uge. Those who most need it are
allowed to stay there for some time,
and many have won their way back
into decent positions by the help
given them in this way. This is in
tended to meet a supposed defect of
some of the asylums, where the
wretched inmates are remorselessly
turned out in the morning, no matter
what their needs, and many of them
to certain and obvious starvation.
Of the 3,500 women received at Au
teuil in one year, over 1,700 found
their way back to modest comfort
under this arrangement."
Griuit ami the Frightened Officer.
An old army officer told me how
General Grant once revived the flag
ging courage of one of his staff offi
cers. The latter, when he was first
assigned to duty under Grant, had
never been in any serious engage
ment. Almost the first day that he
reported to Grant he was placed un
der a fire of the hottest and most
severe kind. The screaming of the
balls, tho roaring of the cannon, and
the sharp crack and rattle of the
musketry, thoroughly demoralized
him. He became absolutely sick
and paralyzed with fear. He was so
v. eak from nervous excitement that
he lost physical control over himself.
Grant came up at tho very climax of
his fright, ana noticing his pale face,
his blue lips and chattering teeth, he
said: "Captain, you are frightened.
That is natural enough. You will
get over it. Suppose," continued
Grant, "I should come to you with a
hat containing ninety-nine white
beans and one black one.andl should
ask you to thrust your hand into the
hat at a venture and pick out the
black bean, do you think your chance
of getting that black bean would be
very good? Well, your chance for
being hit under this fire is no greater
than your chance for drawing the
black bean." This officer at once
took heart, and from then on he
never showed the slightest sign of

A recent medical discovery was at
first thought to be a patent medicine
scheme, but when it was found that
it was purely vegetable and contained
no medical poisons or opiates, and
yet that it promptly cured the most
obstinate cases of cough or lung
trouble, Boards of Health and public
men endorsed it and hospitals adopt
ed it succes fully in their treatment of
wasting diseases. The discovery is
Red Star Congh Cure, and it is sold
for twenty-five cents a bottle.
