THE SUNDAY HKRALD, AUGUST 2, 1891.
WANTED TO KI3ICP HIS HOUSE.
Tlio Oruol Joke Which Mr. Snrtorln'
Clilonfjo Frloml Played on Hhu.
CI) IcaKO Times.
Crowds of coinoly women filled the halls,
parlors and reception rooms of the Richelieu
yesterday morning. At noon one coufd hardly
pass through the main corridor, so dense
was tho throng. About 10 o'clock a prepos
sessing young woman sout her card to tho
apartmonts of Lionel Sartorls, a brother-in-law
of Nolllo Grant Sartorls. He Is ono of
the wealthy young Englishmen who arc
lanroly interested In cattlo In Wyoming. Ho
received tho young woman In the reception
"Is this Mr. Sartorls 5"' she asked.
"Well, I would like to go to Wyoming
.and keep house for you." If the young for
eigner had been asked to Btand on his tend,
Jlic would nothavo been so surprised.
"What do you moan r" he exclaimed.
"I wunt to bo your housekeeper."
"Well, you can't. I know, this is a queer
country, but when a young fellow wants to
get married, surely ho can pick his choice
'Pardon mo, but I will say good morning."
The poor woman's color waB lobsteresquo,
. and she darted out of the room. Mr- Sartorls
started for tho cafe, but was halted at tho
f oot of the stairs by a large, dark-oved woman
"ThlBioMr Sartorls?" she asked.
"I would like to go to Wyoming."
"Well, for goodness sake, go." "
"But'l would like to go with you."
"You can't, for I am engaged to this girl
' that is so popularnow. Let's see. Oh 1 Anulo
Kooney 1b her name. I'amgotng to marry her
and that lots you out. Good morning."
.The young cattle king was the angriest
vmau In Chicago when no entered the cafo
and ordered breakfast. When ho had finished
I bis meal there were twonty-6even good look
i intr women watting for him. The clerk Bout
i thorn to the parlor, and told Mr. Sartoris that
i some of his friends were in the parlor. He
wcut to tho room, saw tho crowd and ran
(down tho hall to tho office.
"My gracious," he gasped, "what do these
women want of me? I don't want to got
imarried. Is this a Chicago custom?"
"I know uothlng about them," replied tho
clerk. "Tbese women come to the office, ask
ifor you and I send up their cards, supposing
ihat you nro expecting them."
"well. I'm going to my room, and I will
bolt, lock, and nail up my door. If another
woman calls for me tellherl died last night."
Mr. Sartorls locked himself up and re
mained a prisoner all day. But that didn't
stop the fair ones from calling on him. Some
times four or live would.call at a time. The
mystery was not explained until evening.
Some Chicago clubmen and friends of Mr.
Sartoris placed advertisements in various
Chicago papers asking for a good-looking
housekeeper" to go to Wyoming. The tempt
ingtcall concluded by saying, "Call at Rlche
Jtfeu Hotol, Mr. Sartoris.

'The Colonel Commands tho Regiment
ButSho Rules tho Colonel.
: 8t. Louis O lobe-Democrat.
There is ono person in the army, or rather
.connected with the army, whom it ismorenec
.cssary for a subordinate officer to concilllato
ithau the colonel of hls'regiment, and that Is
the colonel's wife, says an ex-army officer.
'The colonel commands tho regiment, but tho
colonel's wlfo commands the colonel. Many
.a. young lieutenant has learned thi3 only after
paying dearly to gain tho knowledge. There
are two errors In judgment of which the lieu
tenant may be guilty. Let him beware of
marrying a wife who Is better looking and
more engaging In manner than the lady of
.the commanding officer, or if he is single let
him be careful to avoid showing particular
attention to other ladles of the garrison to tho
neglect of Mmo. la Colonelle at the little
social gatherings which enliven the monotony
of life at an army post.
The dangers that may be encountered by a
neglect of these two rules are probably not
0 great now as when wo had many frontier
posts surrounded by Indians, who, if not
actually hostile, were liable to break ,out at
.. any momont. Looking back on those days,
, many an old army man can recall instances
. of young lieutenants being sent out 20 or 80
, miles on the prairie with a detachment de
tailed to tho Important service of gathering
hay for tho government mules, with a chance
. of losing their scalps before they returned,
and who were selected for this duty by
reason of tho fact that the superior attrac
tions of their wives had excited the jealous
rage of tho lady who commanded tho colonel,
-and, through him, tho regiment, And even
in these days It not Infrequently happens
that tho young officer who Is detailed to tho
most unpleasant duties is the one who has
failed to win tho good opinion of the colo-
- nel's wife.
AN INDUSTRY IN CORPSES.
How an Express Company ami an Under
taker Wltnalc Up on Consumptives.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Tho Wolls-Fargo Company does some queer
. .things In tho way of business, but the strangest
perhaps la a new lino worked up by one of tho
shrewdest agents of the country at Denver.
Colorado is a sort of last chance for consump
tives, and pretty generally they die thore.
Most of them aro supplied with money from
home in regular Installments, so when they
. dlo not enough coin is found among their
effects to pay an undertaker. Undoubtedly
many of them would be buried by the county,
bnt right horo's where tho company gets in.
It has a contract with an undertaker who
takes charge of tho body, embalms It, and getB
It all ready for shipment. Then the Fargo
agont wires tho agent in the town from
which tho deceased received letters. If any
relatives can bo found it is a sure thing, and
nine times out of ten enough friends can be
found to put up a check for the undertaker's
charges and transportation. When this has
been dono tho body is shipped to the friends
. or relatives by fast train and turned oyer by
the agent. Tho company makes a fat annual
profit out of this melancholy business "the
.corpse industry," they call it It Isagoodsnap
for the undertaker, and this county is saved
just so many dollars. Many a time there have
been threo to four corpses at once in the com
pany's "cooling room" at Denver awaiting
notice from friends in just this way. It is a
cold day when W, F. & Co. can't discover a
new way to turn au honest penny.
Tho Best Snalco Story Yet.
Crawford (Ou ) Heruld.
He and his uncle were sitting by a creekslde,
Jn Kentucky, fishing, and were surprised by
seeing a black snako dash out of a thicket, and,
running to a weed standing near them, bite off
a leaf from it and quickly return. This he did
sovcral times, when, their curiosity being ex
cited, they followed him to see what he meant
by such strange conduct, and found him en
gaged In a fearful fight, with a moccasin sev
eral times his own size. As often as his an
tagonist succeeded In biting him he ran to tho
weed for hla antldoto and was at hltn again.
At length tho uncle pulled up and removed
tho weed to see what tho snako would do. Ho
soon camo again, and, findlnghls remedy gone,
ho looked oagcrly from Bide to sldo, n perfect
plcturo of despair, and fell stone dead on tho
spot. The moccasin, atready badly dis
abled, they despatched.
MRS. FREMONT'S HOME.
The Gonoroui Donation of n Committee
of California Xadla.
Los Angeles Express.
Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont and her
daughter, Miss Elizabeth Benton Fremont,
have taken possession of tho beautiful homo
at tho corner of Hoovor and Twenty-eighth
streets, presented to them by a commlttco of
ladles. Lieutenant Fremont, his wlfo and
child, arc members of tho household for tho
present. Thoro is also a trusted servant who
has faithfully followed tho fortunes of tho
family for twenty-six years.
Tho commltteo of ladles which has made
this vory gonerous donation, consists o Mrs.
J. P. Jones, of Santa Monica, Mrs. John A.
Willis, Mrs. J. S. SIos8on, Mrs. Major Elder
kin, Mrs. Dr. HaganandMrs. C. M. Severance,
of Los Angeles.
Tho valuation of the houso and lot Is about
$5,000; of tho house alono, $3,500. Thero
still remains upon tho property an incum
brance of from $500 to S700, and contri
butions will bo thankfully received by tho
Mrs. Senator Hearst and Mrs. C. P. Hunt
ington, made donations of $500 each, and
several other ladles gavo $100 each.
Tho location of the estate is exceedingly
pleasant, in the midst of an orange grove, and
the neighborhood is ono of'tho most desirable
in tho city.
Mr. Sumner P. Hunt, thB architect, fur
nishes tho following description : Tho house
is in tho Eastern suburban style. The princi
pal dimensions aro 80x50 feet. On the
lower floor is an inviting entrance hall, a
pleasant reception-room, a spacious dining
room, a kitchen with all tho modern con
veniences and a neat servant's room. There
Is abundant space for closets and pantries,
which every housekeeper will appreciate.
Screened porches on tho front ana rear are
very comfortable apartments at this season of
tho year. They face the North and the South,
so that the one or tho other may bo utilized
as a sitting-room at any hour of tho day.
The shade of the orange trees is most
Tho exterior of the first story consists of
redwood, oiled. The second stbry and the
roof are painted red. There aro four com
modious and comfortable bed-rooms on the
second story and a writing or sewing room
for Mra. Fremont. A bath-room is also on
In justice to the architect It should be
statod that he described .the house in the
simplest terms, while Mrs. Fremont and
her daughter expressed their satisfaction in
language of the highest commendation.
They called particular attontion to the
lovely scenery visible from the chamber
windows. They also warmly praised the
ladies of tho committee and the architect.
They are very happy in their new surround
ings. TO KEEPVORKMBN SOBER.
Regulations Which Have Been Adopted
Wo generally think of Germany as a place
where alcohol circulates without restraint, and
it is certain that American ideas of temperance
are generally incomprehensible to a German;
but in Prussia a practical step has been taken
toward preventing tho Intoxication of build
ing workmen while on duty, 'which Is worth
remembering. Not long ago, according to the
Deutsche J3auzeilunff, Herr Franzius read to
tho Association of Architects and Engineers
of Bremen a paper on tho repression of
drunkenness among workmen, which met
with great favor in tho eyes of the Prussian
Minister of Public Works, and the latter soon
afterward issued a circular to the officials in
charge of building and engineering matters,
requesting them in their respective districts,
to take measures for giving effect to tho rec
ommendations of Herr Franzius, not only in
tho Interest of the workmen themselves, but
of the public, which has a right to be pro
tected from the effect of the dangerous blun
ders of which a drunken workman is capable.
As means to this end. tho circular advised: 1.
That all official building inspectors should
be required to set an example of temperance
to the men whoso work they had to supervise,
and that any misconduct in this respect should
bo Immediately and severely punished. Q.
Unsparing enforcement of tho provision,
which Is generally Included In German con
tracts, that drunken workmen may bo im
mediately removed from tho premises, with
out notice to tho contractor. 8. Prevention
through tho police of tho bringing of liquor to
tho building, both by keeping out of the
vicinity tho traveling venders of "schnaps,"
and by laying 6trlct Injunctions upon the pro-
Erietors of "canteens" and inns in tho nelgh
orhood. 4. Provision of hot coffee, or other
harmless stimulants to take tho place of

A medical journal calls attention to the
question so ofteu asked by physicians; "Why
is it that so many persons return to tho city
after a Bummer's outing, and soon are taken
sick with fever?" Iu tho first place, says the
editor, healthy homes are left behind for a
more or less prolonged stay in malarial re
gions. Hotels designed to accommodate fifty
persons are stretched to recelye more than
twice that number, and the means provided
for the disposition of tho waste of the smaller
number are bo inadequate that soil saturation
and water polutlon invariably result. Then,
too. In the closed city homes no provision is
made for the filling of traps, tho water of
which gradually evaporates during the absence
of tho inmates, and when the family returns
it is to a house in which, it may be, the air of
