Legal Aid for the Poor

Mr. Frank R. Stockton, in "The Hundredth Man," puts into the mind of that social chameleon, J. Weatherby Stull, the notion "to found a law hospital, where those persons who were unable to pay for legal protection should receive it as freely as the ailing poor receive medicine and treatment in hospitals of the other kind." The idea was intended to be a delightful absurdity, but even while the book was being written there existed in the city of New York a law hospital, ready to succor the poor, downtrodden, and afflicted, deprived of their legal rights, without money and without price. Mr. Stull, in the novel, waxes eloquent about his scheme, and says, among other things, every application that "shall be found to be based on good grounds will be carried through to the very end, to the very end, sir; if it shall be the case of a brakeman against a millionaire, it will be carried through, you may be sure of that."

There are a score or more of concerns in this city which will gladly take charge of negligence cases, and, even by means of runners and of the mails, make strenuous efforts to get them. There is a deal of romance and sentiment about a good negligence case-likewise money. There is no romance or sentiment about an

eight or ten dollar wages case, when the client is odoriferous and has been deprived of the use of soap for some time, and is so ignorant and stupid that he must be asked his name half a dozen times. Divorce and slander cases are unspeakably nasty, but if the defendant is a woman, poor and apparently innocent, she does not come to our Society for assistance in vain. In other words, it is the poverty, the utter helplessness of the individual that attracts them to the Legal Aid Society, and that makes them attractive to us. It is because no one else will help them that we do it.

During the last twenty years $400,000 have been collected for our clients, in small sums mostly. Over seven thousand cases, comprising over thirty nationalities, have been disposed of during the last year.

Does the Society pay? Perhaps, judging merely by the money collected, the query might be answered in the negative. When it is remembered, however, what is most of the good work accomplished-such as reconciliations effected between husbands and wives, and advice given to young women and young men in trouble and almost totally discouraged-then the query may well be answered in the affirmative. The standard of our applicants has been raised as far as we have been able to influence them. We have tried to show by our manner of dealing that a lie is unjustifiable, even to obtain a judgment; that not only is honesty the best policy, but it is to be exercised because it is right.

The spirit of equality before the law, which teaches that the poor man has equal rights with the rich, has been instilled into the minds of our clients. On the other hand, the litigious

spirit has been suppressed as far as possible. Anarchy has been combated, and the whole trend of the work of the Society has been toward the uplifting and encouragement of fellow-men who have been less fortunate than ourselves, by giving them a glimpse of a higher culture and of a higher life, and implanting in them a sincere belief, founded on acts, in the universal brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God. Is it not plain that a similar work should be carried on in all of the larger

cities of our land?

Why Birds Go to the Arctic Regions

The number of birds that go to the Arctic regions to breed is "vast beyond conception." They go, not by thousands, but by millions, to rear their young on the tundra. The cause which attracts them is because nowhere in the world does nature provide at the same time and in the same place "such a lavish prodigality of food." That the barren swamp of the tundra should yield a food-supply so great as to tempt birds to make journeys of thousands of miles to rear their young in a land of plenty only to be found beyond the Arctic Circle, seems incredible. The vegetation largely consists of cranberry, cloudberry, and crowberry bushes. Forced by the perpetual sunshine of the Arctic summer, these bear enormous crops of fruit. But the crop is not ripe until the middle and end of the Arctic summer, and if the fruit-eating birds had to wait until it was ripe they would starve, for they arrive on the very day of the melting of the snow. But each year the snow descends on this immense crop of ripe food before the birds have time to gather it. It is then preserved beneath the snow, perfectly fresh and pure, and the melting of the snow discloses the bushes with the unconsumed last year's crop hanging on them, or lying, ready to be eaten, on the ground. The frozen meal stretches across the breadth of Asia. It never decays, and is accessible the moment the snow melts. Ages have taught the birds that they have only to fly to the Arctic Circle to find such a store of "crystallized foods will last them till the bushes are once more forced into bearing by the perpetual sunlight. The same heats which free the fruits bring into being the most prolific insect life in the world; the mosquito swarms on the tundra. No European can live there without a veil after the snow melts; the gun-barrels are black with them, and the cloud often obscures the sight. Thus the insect-eating birds have only to open their mouths to fill them with mosquitoes, and the presence of swarms of tender little warblers, of cliff chaffs, pipis, and wagtails, in this Arctic region is accounted for.

Or perhaps she declines to be called Mary Ann at all, and insists that her name is Arabella, to his great annoyance and discomfiture. Lurid possibilities of revolt suggest themselves on every side, until the unhappy novel-writer, notwithstanding his detestation of the "feudal ideal," as illustrated by Sir Walter Scott, must sigh occasionally for "les Droits Seigneuriaux," which would enable him to hang a few of his rebellious puppets, pour encourager les autres. It may be worth while, in this connection, to remind him of the absolutely arbitrary manner in which Mr. Anthony Trollope, that true master of realism, disposed of Mrs. Proudie. If ever there was a character in fiction whom we should have trusted to hold her own against her author, Mrs. Proudie was that character.

No reasonable creature will for a moment pretend that an amiable, easy-going, middle-aged gentleman like Mr. Trollope was a match for the Bishop's wife, who had, in her day, routed many a stronger man. She had lived so long, too. In novel after novel she had played her vigorous part, until the right to go on living

Sir Walter Scott on Golf The following letter was written by the great novelist to a Mr. John Cundell, of Hope Street, Leith, the author of the "Historical Sketch of the Game of Golf." It was to this effect: "Sir: I should esteem myself happy if I could add anything to the elaborate account of the game of golf which you were so good as to transmit to me, as I am still an admirer of that manly exercise, which in former days I occasionally practiced. I should doubt much the assertion that the word 'golf' is derived from the verb 'to gowff,' or strike hard. On the contrary, I conceive the verb itself is derived from the game, and that 'to gowff' is to strike sharp and strong as in that amusement. If I were to hazard a conjecture, I should think the name golf is derived from the same Teutonic expression from which the Germans have colb,' a club, and the Low Dutch 'kolff,' which comes very near the sound of
