Private Fortunes in Ancient Times.
Crcrsiis possessed in landed property a for
tune of ,?(X),tM07, besides a large, sum of
money, slues, and lurniture, which amount
ed to an equal sum; he used to say, that a
citizen who had not a fortune sullicient to
support an army or a legion, did not deserve
the title of a rich man. The philosopher
Seneca had a fortune of 2,00 ty.HJJ. Len
tuliH, the soothsayer, had A)0,Q0()l. Ti
berius, at his death, left 2.3, 5 JO, 000, which
Caligula spent in less than twelve months.
Vespasian, on ascending the throne, estima
ted all the expenses of the state at .3,.X)0,0U0.
C;esar, before he entered upon any ollice,
owed 2,u!).3,000; lie purchased the friend
ship of Curias for 500,000, and Lucius Tau
lus for 1300,000. At the time of the assas
sination of Julius (tesar, Anthony was in
debt to the amount of 300,000; he owed this
sum at the Ides of 31 arch, and it was paid
before the Kalends of April; he squandered
147,000. of the public treasures. Apicius
expended in debauchery 500,000; and find
ing on examination of the state of his affairs,
that he had no more than 130,000 left, he
poisoned himself, because he considered that
sum insiitlicient for bis maintenance. Julius
Ciesar gave Servilla, the mother of Brutus,
a pearl of the value of 40,000. Cleopatra,
at an entertainment, gave to Anthony, dis
solved in vinegar, who shallowed it, a pearl
worth 80,000. Claudius, the son of Eao
pus, the comedian, swallowed one worth
8,000. One single dish cost Ksopus u0,
000., and Ileliogabolus 0,000. The usual
cost for a rpast for Lucullus was 20,000.
Misolla gave 400,000. for the bouse of An
thony. The fish from Lucullus's fish ponds
were sold for 35,000. Scaurus' country
house was destroved by fire, and his loss was
estimated at 850,000. Otho, to finish a part
of xNero's palace, spent 187,500.
A man of property, who had for years been
abusing his stomach, at last found his health
on a rapid decline. .Nature could endure it
no longer. He went to consult the celebra
ted Doctor Spring, of Watertown, :Mass.
He stated the symptoms of his case so clear
ly, that the learned physician could not mis
take the nature of his disease. " I can cure
you, sir, said he, " if you w ill follow my ad
vice." The patient promised most implicit
ly to do so. u Now," says the Doctor, "you
must steal a horse." "What! steal a horse?"
Yes you must steal a horse. You will
then be ai rested, convicted and placed in a
situation where your diet and regimen will
be such that in a short time your health will
be perfectly restored."
