At Melbourne Meeting

$400 a Vote
It has been costing New York
City $400 for one man to cast his
vote at each election for several
years. And Tammany cannot be
accused of paying it.
Briefly, the case is this. George
Schraeder has lived for many
years at 228 West 38th street,
right in the heart of a ma'nufac-
turing district. At night nobody
lived in this district but Schrae-
der, and just for him the city had
to have a polling booth, a set of
election officials, books, an~d a
lone cop to keep order. And all to
count the one vote.
City officials have worked with
Schraeder for many years, trying
to persuade him to change his le-
gal residence but he proved ob-
stinate until a few days ago when
he moved a mile away. And the
city will be $400 ahead every elec-
tion from no won.
Every evening, around Times
Square, one can see workmen, cov-
ered with the grime of the daily
toil, hot and sweaty from slaving

it to avoid the terrific crush and
heat of the subway rush hour.
Here's the catch. They do not
ride' alone but wait until the
driver has corralled four or five
others, all going in the same gen-
eral direction. Then they prorate
the fare, often not more than 30
cents each, and ride home to their
own doors in style.

"I WAS WRONG"
Like many other business men, I subscribe to a confidential buil-
letin issued by a private news agency in Washington.
It contains interesting comment on affairs both here and abroad,
gathered from official sources and from important visitors to the esp-
ital. No one is quoted by name and hence the writers of the bulletin
can exercise considerable freedom. Sometimes their information is
In a recent number they answered certain questions as to how
they get their news. I quote the following paragraph:
"For example,~ take the Washington predictions as to when busi-
ness will recover. There have been two kinds. First, the formal,
publishable statement of officials, which the newspapers have ear-
ried. Second, the unofficial, private, more sincere views which the
Washington correspondents have known but were under obligations
not to print.~ We have sent you the latter. Our advices have been
less wrong than most, but not particualrly good at that, and this is
one example of why you should not trust our letters 100 per cent."
That made a great hit with me. If the writers had said: "We
misled you a little about the time of the business recovery, but we
are not responsible. The officials deceived us;" or, "While we were
wrong on the business recovery, still our competitors were much
worse"--if they had written any sort of alibi at all, every word of it
would have lessened my confidence.
But when they come out frankly and say: "We were wrong, and
y sh ul never tde end on us one hundred per cent,"r then I begin
I have never forgotten an experience with one of my first em-
ployers, a man who is now at the very top of his profession.
In those days I was getting $40 a week, and he was earning $40,-
000 a year. He lived in a fine apartment on Park Avenue, and I: lived
in one room in the Y. 1 C. A.
One morning early I was called out of bed to answer the tele-
phone. It was my employer. He said:
"After you left the office last night L hunted up some additional
information on the subject we had been discussing. I tried to reach
you during the evening, but you were out. I am calling you now to
let you know that you were right, and I was wrong."
You can imagine what that did to me! I would have jumped off
the roof for that boss, and I never meet him even now without an im-
Little fellows feel that they must be infallible in order to main-
tain the world's respect. It is a badge of bigness to be able to say
frankly, "I was wrong."

For there's Bob, he just will drive and he's on the sunny side of

Then Junior, always an explorer, picks up a locust thorn in his
most prominent muscle--it penetrates half an inch.
And Clarice, fond of butterflies, gets stung on the upper lip by
a new species that she finds buzzing over the horsemint bloom.
Little Mary insists on carrying the lunch basket many times too

from one fat knee.
Tom, the profound, none too energetic and peppy--picks up at
least a pint of chiggers--and they ALL depend on MAMMA for first
aid. All run to Mamma when in distress.
On that day's outing, take along a kit containing, (1) seislsors;
(2) a roll of clean adhesive plaster; (3) a bottle of mercurochrom~e;
(4) clean muslin or gamze for bandages; (5) a splinter force; (6) a
bottle of carbolated vaseline; a can of antiseptic dusting powdet.
Don't rely on liquid vegetable antiseptics--most of them, are power-
less for killing germls. If a cut finger, let it bleed awhile; then pour
mercurochrome into the cut and around it. Dry quickly and apply
adhesive plaster to close wound. Treat "skinned" abrasions much the
.same, except carbolated vaseline on gamze next the wound.
For the thorn in Junior's flesh--pull it out with splinter forcep;
soak the puncture with mercurochrome; cover with adhesive plaster.
Treat the chiggers and sunburn at home. Carbolic soap and cold cream
applied freely. Watch this column for next.

figures; and then, as if spurred
on by a competitive ambition to
capture the applause of the masses
which she philosophically belittled,
she decorated the deductions of
her inexorable reason with a glow
that trenscended them.
I asked for an interview, which
she readily granted.
She received me very cordially
and, as I could not help noticing
the chaotic state of her books and
papers on the table, as if to dis-
arm any possible criticism on my
part, she said:
"I have just been scolding my
servant for tampering with my
books and papers. I can never
find anything after my table is
tidied up and arranged."
"You are quite right," I agreed.
i"Your private table must be ex-
empt from the general principles
of order, by reason of the higher
social order for which you are
working." She laughed.
"I cannot help admiring," I con-
tinued, "you~r deep, your enthusi-
astic affection for the poor, your
wide universal sympathies."
"I am afraid," she said, that
the practical work of committees
is hardening me to such an extent
that I feel pity less and less."
"Your noble motives must have
a strong religious background," I
"!Religion is foreign to my na-
ture. Besides, I am against phi-
lanthropic motives that savour too
much of religion. Religion is due
either to a deficiency or to an ex-
cess of the life-force within us. I
am quite normal. I have just suf-
ficient to live on, and to keep up
a continual zest for living."
"But don't you feel pity for the
poor for whom you are working? "
"No. I am just curing a social
disease, removing it like a surgeon
from the body of the people. Do
you think it would be possible for
me to do iny work calmly if I felt
pity for even a fraction of those
whom I am trying to help? "
Neither love nor religion nor
pity seem to be the motive of her
philanthropic work. What was it,
I searched for some biographical
She had everything--a husband,
three beautiful and gifted chil-
dren, servants, and an assured in-
come. Yet she was restless and
unhappy. She flitted from meet-
ting to meeting, from one relief
committee to another, wrote ar-
ticles on the conditions of the
poor, on vocational training, o
the many ills that afflict the chil-
dren and mothers of Palestine.
She made no distinction between
race and creed, between Jew and
Many people wondered at the
passionate intensity of her social
work. Some said she did it out of
vanity, some in order to occupy
her leisure hours. Some calledqher
a sphinx, some a humanitarian so-
cialist, while she herself in inti-
mate moments of self-revelation
said that she was just a social
I wanted to find out for myself
the secret of this Jersualem
Sphinx. I saw a notice in the
papers that she intended to launch
a campaign for the amalgamation
of all the charitable and philan-
thropic institutions of Palestine
under one central authority. I
eagerly seized the opportunity and
went to the hall where the meet-
ing was to be held. I stood outside
in order to observe the heteroge-
neous audience that flocked to hear
The careless chatter and hub-
bub round the hall suddenly ceases.
She has arrived. A hushed respect-
ful whisper passes among the cu-
rious crowd of sightseers as she
alights from the car. She responds
coldly, almost impassively, to the
friendly greetings of the poor, who
look upon their benefactress with
gratitude and mysterious awe. She
enters the hall and goes straight
to the platform. Her proud, almost
defiant dignity and importance
keeps everyone, including her col-
leagues, at a respectful distance.
She begins her speech by ridi-
culing romantic orators, flaunting
their impassioned eloquence in or-
der to enthrarl the gallery. She
will not speak in the air. She will
base her conclusions on the irre-
futable foundation of facts and
