AVonltli Oivneil by u Utile l'ntroliuaii
of Xcvr York,
Tlio most ttuly lemurkublomnn
ou tbo Now York police foioo wuh
an insignificant - booking littlo
patrolman who nightly patrolled
post 33, us tlio beat on tho oast
Bide of tho Sixth avenuo, from
Fifty-fourth to Fifty-ninth street,
is known. Ho is an Irishman,
undorsizod, but 8tockily,built, and
from n distance looked liko a very
young man. But ho is not n young
man, is Pulrolmnn Thomas 0'
Itourko, huTiug lived through
forty-four years. During h:s
twonty-ono years of service
O'llonrko bus boon shifted from
product to precinct with tbo same
regularity that nil patrolmen are
changed about. But, unlike his
companions, he took advantage oi
tbeso shifts to look about for real
estate bargains. Ho hud a littlo
money when ho joined the force,
and with bis savings ho wns able,
ti do a little profitable speculation
in leal otatu before he had boon
tbreo yoara in the department.
Year by year ho increased his
cipital, until now there uro few of
his suporior oflicors who nro any
thing liko us well to do as he.
Today O'lljiuko owns eleven
houses and four lots, und in ad
dition liu- tuo rows of housos in
course of completion. Ho per
sonally uttonda to all of Ins own
business, beanies doing his pulico
duty, and tho story of how ho has
worked himself up to his present
condition in IMo irom a jienniloss
boy, as t"ld by liiniMjIf, is a most
interesting one. A. Sun reporter
found O'ltoiirke ou his bout and
asked him to talk about himself.
"Talk ubout myself?" said
O'ltourko. "What can I say about
Thomas O'Uourko that's interest
ing? I'm a plain man, und for
twonty-ono years the papers let
mo alone That satisfied me. But
now, beoauso somebody mudo a
complaint against me, and during
tho hearing of that complaint it
came out thnfc I was possessed of
' more monoy thun patrolmen uro
in tho habit of having, ovorybody
wants to know just how muck I
kavo got. Of courso, 1 in a rich
man. I ought to bo, ufter twonty
ono years of constant work. An'
man who keeps a good paying
pluco that long and has any busi
ness ability ought to bti Evory
ponny I've got in tho world was
honestly oarnod, and, let me tell
you, it represents yours of untir
ing oilort. A Now York police
man has nouo too much time to
himself, but what littlo time
I bavo hud away from my
duties 1 bavo spont in building
up my prosent fortuno. It is not
u large ono, and somo papers
have grossly exaggerated it. I
don't hositato to say it$100,000,
or may bo !?150,000, bocmso it's
just ubsut that muck, but every
dollar of it u as honestly eai-ned,
and, lot me toll you, fow Irish
men who have adopted America
have done more for their country
than I have. Consequently 1 fool
entitled to every cent I can mako
out of it.
"1 got ray first start by taking
a wagon load of merohaudi&o to
Mexico in partnership with a man
named John Banner. My sharo
of tho profits was $1800. It was
on that capital und my savings
from my pay tkut I spooulated
and accumulated tho fortuno I
have today. It seems impossiblo
that a man could do so muoh on
so little, but if any ono doubts
that I did it, I will willingly show
thorn roo rds of my every trans
action. As a policeman I had
different boats all the time, and I
kept on tho oonstant lookout for
bnrgains in real oatuto. I was
left up town a great deul, und
property up town was cheaper in
tknso days than it is now. I
imagined that things would go
just as they huvo, and 1 bought us
oxtensivoly us 1 could with my
limited capital, selling again us
soon as I could with reasonable
"Tho first kouso that I bought
was .at 436 East Eighty -fifth
Btreot. I paid $6500 for it, and a
few months luter sold it to Thomas
Acton, a brother of Police Com
missioner Acton, for S'JoOO. Then
I purchased 303 East Sevonty
Wr'Olreet for $11,800, selling it
for $16,400. Next I bought tho
kouBBB at .439 and 441 First ave
nue for $30,000 and later 1 sold
thom for $36,000. Then I bought
a block on Prospect avenue, be
tween Fifty-fifth Hiid Fifty-sixth
etreots for $9000, all but two lots
of which I sold for $18,000. I
doubbd my money in this tran
saction, and 1 still own two lots
thero. In addition to doaling
with othor people, I have built a
number of houses niyeolf.und even
now have c m-lo of block in
the couise of construction. You
can Bee yourself how I've worked
for all this, and ,et there uro a
whole lot of peoplo who don't
think that I ought to huvo so
mi oh monoy." Now York Sun.
Conclusion nntl Otlier Tar Trnublr to
Which Hntticr Are Llnbln.
Concerning somo of tho aural nils
hapi which occnr to tlioso who indulgo
m sea buthiug whoro thoro is concussion
from tlio surf, Popular Soionco Nowh
qnotei Dr.A. H. Chcadlc. Ho says that
tho common accidents to tho car ar
ncuto iiiilnuunntiou of tho middlo ear,
diffnso inflammation of tho external
oar, tho lighting up of an ncuto condi
tion in a chronic suppurating otitis mc
dla, simplo deafness dim to swolling of
n crrninitions plug. Besides this thero
aro occasionally troubles from diving
such as concussion of tho labyrinth and
rupturo of tho membrana tympaui.
In order to avoid theso accidents Dr.
Cheadlo says that persons pnfforing from
middlo car dischargo should never batho
at all, and that thoso who havo had
middlo ear dischargo and whoso mem
branes havo hoalcd should novcr batho
without somo oflloicut means for pro
venting tho wator from entering tho
cars, such as firm plugs of cotton wool
with an oilskin cap fittiug tightly over
them. Water remaining in a healthy
ear should bo let out as soon as possible.,
Acuto otitis seems to bo occasionally
caused by water which lias entered tho
naso-pharyns ; hcuco tho noso should bo
protected. Somo adviso that cvory ono
who bathes should iutrodnco n plug of
cotton in tho car.
A Good Fnce Lotion.
A woll known lotion that will not
injuro tho most sensitive skin consists
of a half pint of sour milk and half an
ounco of grated horso radish. Lot it
staud from 0 to 13 hours and wash tho
faco several tlmos a day. This simplo
romedy is usually effective. Washing
the faco in n saturated solution of borax
in rosowater is a very pleasant treat
ment and equally beneficial.
"Look this prisoner up in Brad
street's," said tho Judgo. "May
I ask why your honor gives such
extraordinary inBtn ctions?"askod
the proouting attorney. "Cer
tainly," said the .hidge, "I wish
to ascertain whother ho is a thiof
dr a kleptomaniac" Hnrpor's
