HE'S NOT IN SOCIETY.
An Astor Who Doesn't rignro In New
That all the descendants of the original
John Jacob Astor are fairly well to do is
taKen for granted
by the -world, but
there is a much
greater di vergenco
between the lines
than is generally
supposed. Even in
New York city
there are Astors
unknown to fame,
and up in Colum
bia county lives
one who is in the
very center line of
of old John Jacob,
brother of the late
John Jacob and nCKRT ASTOR.
present "William, and son of the famous
William B. Astor. His name is Henry and
his history is queer, as well as himself.
When any New Yorker, familiar with
the dazzling society career of Mrs. William
Astor, the late escapade of her daughter,
ilrs. Coleman Drayton, and the promi
nence of William Wal -f Astor, asks
about the collateral branch he gets answers
very much mixed. There is a vairue im
pression that "the other son of William B.
Astor is off somewhere being taken care
of." Sometimes one is told outright that
he is demented and that the Astors care
for him bountifully, as they do for all the
afflicted of their kith and kin. But in Co
lumbia county, and especially around As
torville and on the Copake flats, a sug
gestion of that sort would be apt to start a

GEN. HATES AT HOME.
THE EX-PRESIDENT'S PLACID
AT SPIEGEL GROVE.
A Beautiful Sural Residence Where MIso
Fanny Hayes Presides The Ex-President
Divides BU Time Between His
Books and His Friends.
Fremont, O., May 3. Ex-President
Hayes, more than any president of recent
years, has been able to lay aside the excite
ment and the tension of that high office
and take the role of the unostentatious
private citizen with no disturbance of the
RUTHERFORD B. HATES,
equilibrium of his mind and with a real
relish for dignified retirement and rest
after a long series of years of busy and
eventful lire. No small factor in his con
tentment with a life so quiet and unevent
ful, when contrasted with, the life of the
l""i au mui, region ana uie guaruian i ,. , ... . .. -rr-, r VV . ;.
aneel. as it were, of the bijrm.st familv ; ?mef executive in the White House, is hi3
it. namelv. the Dineharts. And it ,,-, beautiful and well appointed home in Pre
marriage into that family that severed his
relations with the other Astors. He lives
in a big and odd looking house in the town
of Astorville, the house and all its annexes
being painted yellow, with liberal splashes
of red and black, the "toot ongsomule," as
they say in Paris, being quite startling to
one who sees it for the first time.
"He was always queer," say his old com
panions, but at sixty he is a very fine and
intelligent looking man. His conversation
is pleasant, and that and his manner alike
indicate at least average intelligence, if
not more. But he does a few queer
things. For instance, he sells a horse or
cow or anything else he is tired of for
whatever any neighbor offers for it, be it
five dollars or fifty. He also pays the taxes
of those neighbors who get behind, loans
them money at whatever interest they
think they can afford to pay, rents farms
out on similar terms and gives to all
churches and charities whatever is asked.
It goes without saying that he is popular
on Copake flats.
When he was a lad his father sent him
tip to live with Mr. John A&he, who occu
pied one of the Astor farms. He com
menced holding religious services for the
hired help, and when they did not get
religion to suit him he discharged all of
them, but hired them again the next day
at advanced wages. Finally he married
MissMelvina Dinehart, sister of Mrs. Ashe,
and all his relatives were furious about it.
His grandfather, however, had left him
omo real estate, which rapidly increased
In value and he was independent.
Melvma Dinehart was a rustic beauty,
but her father was a common laborer and
had probably the largest family of children
in the county. They are all rich now.
William, oldest of many brothers, managed
Mr. Astor's business for some years, and
now owns throe large farms and much
other property. Delbert Dinehart was Mr.
Astor's next agent, and he is now very rich.
The principal paid them handsome salaries
nnd a good per cent, on the collection of his
rents. He also took his wife's parents to
his house, where they lived in great com
fort till a few years ago.
Mrs. Melvina Astor is now a well pre
perved matron of fifty years, and having
had no children has taken an active part
in managing her husband's affairs. She
holds in her own name the deeds of several
fine farms. In fact, there is a saying in
Copake that Mr. Astor "married the whole
Dinehart family, but he might have done
worse." Although his father left him no
property in fee, he provided a very hand
Eome annuity for him, and present indica
tions are that he will live many years to
enjoy it. Such is the real condition and
such are the surroundings of that Astor
who has completely dropped out of tho
family life and concerning whom the city
tradition is that he is "away off somewhere
tnd beinir taken care of."
Fremont is a thrifty little town on the
I Sandusky river in Ohio, not far from Lake
Erie. It is easily reached from either
Cleveland or Toledo, and is less than an
hour's run by railroad east of the latter
place. Alighting at a little railroad sta-
tion, not different from the stations at
I other country towns, with its platform, a
i bay window for the telegraph operator to
I bit in and bare waiting rooms with benches
' around the wall, one can make his way
through the little town and soon reach the
, outskirts and Spiegel Grove, which is the
j homo of the ex-president. The premises
are parklike, the house being set in the
, midst of a g-ove of noble and lofty old
forest trees elms, oaks, maple, beech,
hickory, etc. The drive is up a winding
carriageway from tho gate to the great
! veranda which extends along the whole
front of the old mansion.
This was the home of the ex-president's
uncle, Mr. Birchard a man of large prop
erty, who left his fortune and his home to
his nephew. It has been his home for
many years, and his family have grown up
in it, and none of them, is ever long away
from it. It is a bountifully and cordially
hospitable roof that shelters the visitor
within its walls, and the occasions are rsre
when the family party at the dinner table
is not augmented by several guests. It is
a place for reunions of a large family con
nection at such seasons of family gather
ings as Thanksgiving and the Christmas
holidays. Here numerous nephews and
nieces and cousins and family friends and
children of them all love to come and look
back upon their experience for months
afterward as one of warm welcome and
good will. It is an atmosphere almost
southern in ts unstinted welcome and in
vitation to all who come.
There never has been such a gathering
at Spiegel Grove and probably never will
be, not even when the ex-president lies in
his last sleep, as that which gathered to
pay the last tribute of love and respect to
Lucy Webb Hayes in 1S89. On the morn-
Eut he is scrupulously averse to any in
volvement in politics a rule he has made
no exception of in any case since he left
the presidential office.
A walk about the place with the host is
one of the treats for a visitor to Spiegel
Grove. There are sunny slopes and glades
and shady dells in the rove. Not far
from the house a tennis court is laid oui,
where young people who are so inclined
may enjoy outdoor exercise. Every tree
in the grove is an individual friend to the
owner. He can name the date when this
one was riven by lightning and when that
one was denuded of a favorite bough by a
storm of sleet and freezing rain, followed
by high wind which, brought down the
overloaded branch. In the great barnyard
are the family horses and some very fine
chickens and ducks. Here was the happy
home into his green old age of "Old
Whitey," the horse that carried General
Hayes during the war and now several
years deceased. There is much, to interest
and entertain on every side.
The head of his household is Miss Fanny
Hayes, his only daughter. The two young
er sons are also at home Rutherford and
Scott. The oldest son, Birchard, is prac
ticing law in Toledo. The second sou,
Webb, is engaged in manufacturing in
Once a year occurs the reunion of Gen
eral Hayes' old regiment, the Twenty
third O. V. L, at the neighboring town
of Lakeside, on Lake Erie. The gen
eral never fails in his attendance upon
these reunions, and his relations to
ward the survivors is almost fatherly
in its nature. Any member of the regi
ment whose memory may become dim
in a point regarding some comrade, is
pretty sure to be able to get it freshened
by appealing to General Hayes for his rec
ollection. It is this intimate sympathy
that endears him to the hearts of the
Grand Army men and to his fellow officers
of the Loyal Legion. The families of com-

rades and brother officers of Rutherford B.
Hayes have something more from him than
letters of condolence when the father is
stricken with death. He i3 often a visitor
at the bedsides in sickness, and a present
mourner with the family and a comforter
when death comes.
It will be remembered that ex-President
Hayes has been an intelligent and syste
matic worker for the education of the
southern freedmen and for prison reform.
He is a trustee of the Ohio state university
and is an earnest and effective laborer for
the prosperity of that institution. He has
given special attention and work to the
subject of industrial education, in which
he is a great believer, and of which he is
an earnest advocate. In these and other
lields of practical usefulness he employs
what might be the idle leisure of his re
tirement. The Birchard library, pictured in the
cut, was presented to the town of Fremont
by ex-President Hayes. It contains a large
collection of books and a museum of his
torical records- S. P. Pais.

Careless People and Lamps.
The two great and very real dangers in
connection with lamps are dirt and care
lessness, and to these two causes may be
safely attributed most of tho so called
lamp accidents. Consult any good lamp
seller, and he will give you any number oi
facts bearing out this assertion. He will
tell you the great sources of danger in
lamps are dirty burners and badly ftttins
wicks. How inconceivably careless people
can bo on these points it is difficult to re
alize without personal observation. Lon
