How Mrs. Hearst Dispenses Her Immense Fortune la Charities. In One City Twenty Kindergartens All Ualntnlnod by lifer Generosity—Her . Magnlfloent Homo »ud Bare nnd Costly Collection*. • [corvniauT. 18960 Washington, D. C., J une25.—Far more than merely a factor in the fashionable world of to-day is Jilrs. Phoebe Heuxsf, sho is an active agent in the betterment o£ the world. By reason of her vast fortune she has been enabled to carry out her ideas of philanthropy and charity upon a scale rarely attained by private geucrosity; and while'in the-ultni-fash- ionable society of Washington, where sho now makes her winter home,-sho is known mainly us one of the most charming members, there is another side ot her -character, knowledge of which is studiously kept from the acquaintances of the gay world. Her c'nlossal charities are conducted so quietly that their extent is scarcely re- alixed even by her intimate friends. It is well known tha.t the dispensing of hospitalities from the handsome house at tlie juncture of New Hampshire avenue and Twentieth street is one of the most prominent factors in the success and brilliancy of u Washington winter. But it is' not known to many that at the very time when tho fashionables are feasting in.her winter residence, there- go up daily from ten of the poorest houses in the city prayers of thankfulness that th-e million's of the late sonalor from California, have u-s Uieir almoner this gentle, thoughtful, (Mlicient woman, to whom the i>oor of Washington, no less tha-n those of San Francisco, owe a debt of gratitude feu- food and shelter and clothing. Many a poor family -Mrs. Hearst literally supports each winter, paying their rcn-t and 'supplying t-hem with food arid shelter. All such e;isi-s are under the supervision of her housekeeper, to whom Mrs. Hearst necessarily intrusts the task of personally investigating the worthiness of such cases of destitution, as nre broug'ht to her attention, , . , Three kindergartens, two for white and one for colored children, are -entirely supported by Mrs. Hearst " irf Wn.shing-ton. The kindergarten forcol- ored children is at. prcse-nt in what is known ns Snow court a neighborhood gold', inintf property ifro'm ,whichv ; the greater .portion of- her'-wealth is drawn', nnd because the late .pcnaf.orwns among the first to rnake the place what it-is today. One ol her giftr. to I/ead City is a free library which at present has 3,000 volumes a fine building.will be given Inter, Another free library lias been g-iven at, Anaconda,. Mont-., where also Mrs. Hearst 1ms gold miuir.g interests. But by far the most extensive charities in which MTH. Hearst is actively in- terested'ore in Sun -Frnncisco." The largest of these is the Boys' club, which during- the five years of its existence has accomplished n woodjerful amount of practical go'nd in the way of teaching poor boys bookbinding-, carpentering, priuting, nnd other industrial pursuits. The boys run and edit a paper of which the institution has cause to be proud. A fine gymniisiuin hns.bocn furnished and otlier arrangements for entertainment and rewention. It'is situated in one of the poorest localities in San F.rnncipco. The dirts' union, nlthougb not altogether s-upported by Mrs. Hearst, is l. : b- erally helped by her. It is?, place where the working girls board for n nomiunl sum, arid when out of employment can remnin until work is obtained. Then tbeve is thfi Boys' and Girls' Aid, to which for years Mrs. Eonrst. has been a peneroiissubRcriber.nsvell ns to theOld 'people'.-; home and' the Mercantile library. To the Ybiyiff Woman's Christinn ussocintion the sum of $50 per month i? regularly pnid. This is a place where the factory girls can get n wnrm lunch, with the privileges of a well furnished reading room. This year Mrs. Hearst will extend the sphere oT its usefulness by leasing ti large building,. • which will be fitted up with bnthroorns and the, latest sanitary improvements. Last Christinas, in memory of the lute Seuntor Hearst, the widow gave to each of the six lust nnmrd charities, nnd to the Protection njid Uclief Society for Children and to the Free Clinic tlie sum of $i.00f> each, in all.$-10,000. This was in accordance with the dying wish of her:Jnisband. A fovm of charity nlmost unknown in eastern cities, with the extwptior^of Xew York, is the system of university settlements, yet an incalculable amount of good is accomplished in this rmmner. The plan is to len«e a building in the poorest neighborhood, furn.isli it. comfortably, supply it with a library and other means for the enlightenment and amusement of the people, vdio gradual- VIEW OF MUSIC -ROOM-MRS: HEART'S WASHINGTON RESIDENCE. ly come to make it their headquarters g-ivcn up almost entirely to a colored population of the very poorest class. It will, however, soon be moved to a larger building in another locality, in order, to secure a Bite with sufficicnn: grounds for the..starting ol a kitehen garden and flower garden in which tlix- children may be 'taught .to work. To the Columbia: kindergarten, now in op-, eration in one of the public schools, Mrs. Hearst is one of the largest contributors. . In addition .to these kindergartens in Washington she maintains no leas than £0 in the city of San Francisco. These -have been established for 13 . years, and accommodate in a-11-from; 3,000 to 4,000 children. Each has a principal and six teachers, with average classes of 150 children. .,-.'. Though primarily growing out .of love for children, Mrs. Hearst's deep interest is due'to the fact that the experience of'many years ,1ms \ fully con- 'vinccd her that it is impossible to hope ; for much In the way of permanently reclaiming criminals and.. confirmed drunkards. She believes that the hope for the future for the whole human race lies in educating the children. The efficacy of her system wns demonstrated in the case of one of the first kindergartens established, .located in the vei-y worst sections of. San Fran-. Cisco. At first the parents would not "allow their children to attend the school—hid tliem away, in .fact, when, the teachers went in search of the poor little waifs. Gradually ..'however, 1 the children were brought into school, In; about two y'oars-it was noticed that there was a very perceptible'fnlling off in the attendance. • Investigation d> s -i .closed, the fact that the parents .of .the pupils, insensibly . influenced by : the; teaching given to1 their ..children,^ were moving away'from'the 'sink-hole of in-, iquity in -the inulst of which 1 the school had been started, diisiring-.to have their, children brought up in better, neighborhoods. .... 'T,he Methodist un'iversity of Washington is indebted'to Mrs. Hearst for'a: recent.gift of $10,000 foi : the-College of; History. This gift was made'.-ln memory.^of .the late senator's-.mother, who. was a Methodist.-• , For the building of .the girls'.school 1 thc ; Epi8cdpai cathcclrnl':in Wa«hlng- _j ; Mrs. -Hearst'has glveri the' sum of: {175;000. -This will Tw^'paid .-In/fnatoll-.' •ments; of ,$35,000 a year/Ior.^ve^con-; secutiye; yeais,:,a» the estatejts not:at[, present in such cpnditign as to..allow;p-t "V,,entire, .sum belng'given'atpne tiine.' of ton 1 for Instruction, recreation and entertainment The house is generally pre- . sidetl over by,u student, sometimes by a man and .w'ife, .who for a period of si.s: months or. a year give themselves : up to the work of thus counseling and ; helping the'poor.

The apartment in which she takes especiui delight is the dining-room, nh idyllic nineteenth century realization of a wealthy Holland biirgoineister's living rooms. Mrs. Hearst's grnndinother was'a-native of' Holland and' many' of the curioiis'old delft platters along the shelves about the rooms are heirlooms. There is a rare collection of antique English silver. Oue of these pieces is a curious thumb bowl, foi-merly used by r old English noblemen; it was passed around after n feast, filled with rose water in which the guests dipped their fingers. There are also four extraordinary old English candlesticks; The banquet ball on tlie lower floor. used on occasions of large entertain- roents, is.finished in California redwood with 3. flooring of white mosaics. The walls, ceilings and ilooi-s of the kitchen are of'white satin tiling. The-range : looks as though a whole ox might be roasted therein in greatest ea.se. Mrs. Hearst's sleeping room is a sym- pbonj' of gold-color. The bed of satin wood is eJa-borateJy inlaid with mot.h- cr of. pearl, as a.re the wardrobes, .dressing table and writing table. The bathroom u.tttuehed to tb.is sleeping apartment is finished in satin tiling of straw , color; the rims of the marble tub and wnslistand are of Mexican onyx. The room at the south front immediately-over the library on the first floor, -a bright, sunny apui-Uneiit, is Airs.' Hearst's private library, the room in which every morning she .spends several hours with her private secretary: looking over her mail nnd attending to the vast business, every detail of which she so perfectly understands. The average number of letters written by 'Mrs. Hearst in the course of a month reaches the stupendous number of• 200; and a. much greater number are written by her stxretaries. A portion of a male secretary's work is to catalogue all books, not only in the Wasliingrtou house, but wherever Mrs. Hearst has presented a library. All necessary typewriting- is done by this assistant secretary. In; the music room-Mrs. Hearst keeps her almost priceless collection of miniatures, many of. .which are historic," once the property of Napoleon. Here, also,:is kept the fan collection, about which so much 1 'has been written. Then, there is a collection of lac-es, gathered, fi-bia nil- over the world, some veritable antiques,' othera quite modern. This. colloctTon of fans, and laces, when sent. last'year to thesafe-depositduring-Mrs. Hearst's absence in Kurope, were insured for $5,000. With a preference for opr.is, °f which she hss some fine speci-. irw-ns, Mrs. Hearst's jewels consist of rubies, diamonds and pearls. • Mirs.'Hearst spends the present summer in California, where, she will remain' until. December on her ranch, "Hacienda del Poso de Verona," near 'Sari Francisco/. Latterly her mother has 1 been ill, and this'fact has made Mrs. Hearst give up her plan of going abroad for a. tour of tlie world. ";• - ' . ' KATHBRINE THOMAS. IMPROVING A BAD MEMORY.
