Death of William B. A.tor-III, Last Bays A
Kortaiir Kstlmatedat More than One Hundred
New York Son, Not. 3S.
On Saturday morning lat Mr. Attor went to
bis cffice in bis carriage its usual. His Ui-alih
duruifr tbe ek had been excellent, though lie
had a alight cold ; hut it did not truuble bim
oiucli. He gave the necessary directions to the
assistants i:i his office in the cuslumurv way.
transncied his own business with bis ordinary
regularity and promptitude, and nobody suspected
that be was sitting at bis desk for the last time.
Shortly after 12 o'clock he walked out on the
slep9 in front of his office, and 6tood for a few
minutes without an overcoat looking up and down
1'riuce street. He drove home, and soon after
he had reached his bouse the cold that he had
supposed to have been almost cured began to
give him more iuconveuience than he had yet
experienced. Ho retired early, (fed passed a
somewhat feverish and restless night, being
troubled by a cough that became hourly niorei.e
vere. Towards morning it subsided, uud be slept
for a few hours. On Sunday morning he awoke
with a sore throat, and bis lauiily physician was
summoned. The doctor found him coughing vio
lently, and suffering under a slight attack of bron
chitis. I)r. IJarker arrived soon afterward, and
Tound the symptoms growing more and more un
favorable. Most of his immediate relatives were
at the bedside, but they did uol anticipate any
great danger until Dr. Barker told them that, al
though the dieease might be successfully com
baltud in the case of a younger patient, iu u man
us old as Mr. Aslur there was great danger of
bronchitis developing into pneumonia, whiuu. un
der the circumstances, would almost certaiuly ter
minate iu death.
THE DEATHBED SCENE.
Realizing hi peril. Mr. Astor'8 sons remained
by bis bedside all day. and. in the afternoon, it
was clear that his lungs were becoming affected.
He breathed laboriously, and coughed with iu
creased violence and frequency. Still his strength
was wonderful. " Had be possessed less vital
ity," said Dr. Barker, " be could not have lasted
so long." His indomitable will, which had con
quered so many obstacles in his long lifetime,
supported bim to the last, and, despite the unfa
vorable symptoms, he was in good spirits, and
seemed confident of ultimate recovery. " You
pulled me through one sickness, doctor," he s:iid
cheerfully, to the family physician, '-and I urn
sure you'will pull me through this." He was
sneaking of a dangerous attack about four years
ago, when he suffered, and almost died, of infln
mation of the veins. His confidence was not
well founded. He was very restless during Sun
day uight. yet Monday morning be was still san
guine. But the end was rapidly upproaching.
Monday evenins a marked change for the worse
was noticed. His respiration became painfuliy
oppressed, and his cough more und more violent.
A sleepless night left bim exhausted ond failing
on Tuesday morning, and when the physicians ar
rived it was evident that the dreaded pneumonia
had set in. and that all hope was gone.
Mr. Astor faced death ns calmly as he had the
day previously looked upon his prospects of his
recovery. " 1 might," he said, " have lived for
another year if I bad not caught this cold ; but 1
am satisfied to go now. 1 am 84 years old.
long past the allotted time of man, and at my
age life becomes a burden." In the afteruoou a
lethargy gradually crept over him. and by siotv
degress he lost interest in what was going on
around his bed. As night approached, symptom
unmistakable to the practiced eyes ol the physi
cians in attendance proclaimed lliul bis last mo
ments were drawing near. His cough increased
und his pulse grew more and more leeble. He
breathed with greater difficulty than belore. and
it was evident that bis powers were last failing.
His mind, however, was little clouded, and he
spoke rationally to his friends and relatives. One
of the physicians remained with bim all night. but
Mr. Astor was unable to sleep, and at 8 o'clock
yesterday morning his death was momentarily ex
pected. He was still conscious, und sufficiently
intelligent to recognise bis friends. Soon ufter
8 o'clock I lie Rev. Dr. Houghton, pastor of "The
Little Church Round the Corner," having beeD
summoned, prayed beside the bed of the dying
man. Mr. Astor partook of the Holy Commu
nion, and then repealed the Lord's Prayer aloud.
Dr. Barker left bim under charge of the other
physicians, supposing that be might live perhaps
for two hours, and immediately after he sank into
a stupor, from which he did not awake. Almost
precisely at 9:30 o'clock he died so quietly that
those around him hardly knew that he had passed
away. All the members of his family and a few
old friends were at bis bedside.
William B. Astor's three surviving sons aro
John Jacob, William, and Henry Astor, and his
two daughters. Mrs. John Carey, and Mrs. Frank
Delano. He also leaves a granddaughter, the
wife of Hon. John W. Chanler.
For twenty years Mr. Astor was a member of
Grace Church, but as his uge increased he found
the fatigue of traveling so far to service inoro
thau he cared to undergo, and recently be termi
nated bis membership. For some weeks prior
to his death he contempluled joining another
church, nearer bis residence, but had cot fully de
cided which one to connect himsell with.
John Jacob Astor. the father of William B.
Astor, was born in Heidelberg, and, coming to
this country in early life, embirked in the (ar
trade and amassed a fortune. William B. Astor
was born at 149 Broadway, on the I9th of Sep
tember, 1792. There bis father carried on his
business as a furrier, and lived with hi family
in the same boose. Six years after the birth of
the future millionaire, the elder Astor. having ac
cumulated between S200,000 and $300,000. hire J
a house at 223 Broadway, the site of the existing
Astor House, and moved into it with his family,
retaining the premises in the lower part of the
city as a place of business only. From an early
period of bis life, William B. Astor was his fa
ther' principal ossistant. He learned the fur
business thoroughly, and acquired, too, those hab
its of industry, perseverance, and economy which
finally made bim the Rothschild of America.
His father entrusted the trade be bad built up so
well almost wholly to the management of his
son, so that the latter may be said to have him
self accumulated much of the fortune accruing to
bim when John Jacob Astor died.
After some years the old fur-trader began to
send bis wares to China, receiving in return con
signments of tea. a business that soon became
enormously profitable. John Jacob Astor
doubled his already large fortune in a very short
Hitherto his son had received no book education
beyoDd what he htd been able to give himself
in the few hour snatched from the pursuit of his
business. But now bis father realizing that tba
falure management of bis increasing business
must, to continue successful, be entrusted to one
possessed of a belter education than be had been
able lo give bis son, lent him to the university
of his native town, Heidelberg. There toe young
sli dent made excellent use of his opportunities,
learuing fast, and obtaining numerous honors in
college. He became a thorough Oerman lingnist,
a branch of knowledge whioa subsequently was
of inestimable service lo him. He was also an
accomplished musician, and, like all (Jermrn stu
dents of that day, and indeed of oar time, he be
came a skilful swordsman. He remained in Ger
many several years, and returned lo America only
when his father fell his presence indispensable to
the management of bis business, now swollen to
William IS. Astor had not lost his taste for
business, and after traveling entirely over Kurope.
which at thai lime was by no means the journey
of to-day. be returned to Xew York, and once
more entered the fur store. His uncle, Henry
Astor. in whom was the same aptitude for amass
ing money thai seems to characterize every mem
ber of the family, bud accumulated a vast fortune.
He was greatly attached Lo his nephew, and on
bis death he bequeathed to bim $500,000. This
legacy did not tempt William B. Astor to forsake
bis father's business. He invested the money
and carried on the fur trade with greater energy
than ever. Hit father's increasing age and in
firmities rendered his attention to the business
uncertain, and finally almost the eotire manage
ment fell upon the son. Out of the profits of hii
trade which John Jacob Astor had purchased the
lite upon bis dwelling in Broadway was built, and
in 1835 he built the Aslor honseon it, and trans
ferred the whole property to his son. Soon after
ward he gave bim the residence in Lafayette
place, adjoining the Astor Library.
In 1848 John Jacob Astor died at the age of
83 or 84 years, leaving an estate valued at up
ward of 920,000,000.
THE GREAT LIBRARY.
The institution with which William B. Astor's
name is popularly identified is the Astor Library.
The original fund for fouLding it was $400,000.
of which 8100.000 was for the tile, building, and
purchase of books, uud SlSO.OOU was to be used
from time to lime lo increase ibe Library. The
remainder was to constitute a reserve fund.
Since the institution was founded upwards of
$900,000 has lieen expended on it, and William
B. Astor, out of his private hinds, gave Mr. Cojs
well a former Librarian, an nnuuily of 85.0IK).
The first gift was made in 1859, when the first
building was furnished. Afterward Mr. Aslor
gave the Trustees a silo 150 feet deep by 80 wide,
upon which a second and better building was
erected. In I8C6 he gave the Library $50 000.
of which $20,000 was invested in books. Among
the original Trustees of the library were William
B. Astor, Washington Irving, Joseph C. Cogs
well, and Fhx Greene Ilulleck.
Mr. Astor wus a much more liberal man than
was generally supposed, but he gave unostenta
tiously, and many of lha charities benefitted by
his benefactions never knew the giver of the
most liberal gilts.
RECOLLECTIONS OF ASTOR.
William B. Aslor lived for n long lime in La
fayette place, in a mausion adjoining the Aslor
Library. He owned 3000 houses and building
lots in this city, the total value of which was re
cently estimated at 8150 000,000.
Mr. Astor bad more improved real estate than
any lour men in the city, excluding Willium
Hhinelander, (he Goelels. A. T. Stewart and the
Uet-kmans. Most of the large tenement booses
around Tompkins square and along First avenue
aud Avenues A and B belong lo the Astor es
tate, as also do whole blocks in Sixth avenue, Irom
Sixteenth street to Fortieth street. The old
Bowery Theatre and the old 1'ark Theatre were
on his land. He was ready lo buy real estate
where he could get it cheap. It was bis rule
never to sell any of bis houses or lots. He leused
the most of his lots for tweniy-onn years, with
the stipulation that the lessee should build on
them. On Ibe expiration of the leases the bnild
iugs reverted lo bim with the lots. The Astor
House was the only instance in which he ever
parted with bis real estate. For some unexplained
reason he sold this place to his son John Jacob,
None of William B. Astor's property was in
sured. Ho believed like Mr. Stewart thut the
cost ol insurance would be greater then bis loss
es. The terms of bis father's will prohibited the
building of brown-stone houses, us they were too
extraragiint. He strictly abided by this rule,
and ihe brown-stone house that he owned he
bought from other, as they reverted lo him on
the expiration of leases. The most of the resi
dences that he built on Madison and Fifth nve-
I nues and Thirty-third and Thirty-fourth streets in
reient tears were ol Is ova Scolia Iree stone or
brick with stone trimmings. Mr. Astor attended
p r.-onally to the reutul of bis real estate, and was
assisted by his sons and ugeuLs, Mr. Hullock uud
Mr. Bruce. His office was ut No. 86 PriDce
street, and he went to the nffico every day unlil
very recently. Ho retired Mr. Bruce on a pen
sion. In 1870 Mr. Astor paid two million dollars
taxes on bis houses and lots. Among the places
that he owned outside of Now York is Green
ME ASTOR FAMILY.
Mr. Astor never held a public office. His
whole life was spent in the management of his
fortune. He leaves three sons, John Jacob.
William B., aud Henry. Neither of ibem has
any business pursuit.
Henry, the youngest son, inherited the estate
oT his uncle. John Jacob, six years ago. He mar
ried the daughter of a poor farmer in barrytown,
Dutchess cnanty, against the wishes of his rela
tive. Since his marriage be has retired lo a
place near Hodson, and he rarely comes to the
city, although the most of his properly is here.
I be Astor estate decends to John Jacob, the
eldest son of William B. He is about 60 years
old. and has one son. William.
It has been the custom in the Astor family for
Ibe generations to deposit 8100.000 in bank at
the birth of a son or daughter, the money and
the interest to be given to the child when he or

Mr. William B. Astor had three daughters,

A Perilon Feat at Men by Klondin.
A gentleman, who was passenger on board the
P. and O. steamship Poonah. sends ns the follow
" The P. and O. mail steamer Poonab was on
her first voyage to Calcutta, ufter the completion
of the alteration and improvements which have
been made in her, and at 5 o'clock in the ulternoon
of the !9ih October, when the ship was between
Aden and Galle, Bloudin announced that he was
ready lo try the teal of walking on the light
rope in a seaway, and undertook to walk" from
the mnin to the imzz uun.s'. ai d back. A seven
inch hawser luviugbeen made last to the mizzrn
lop and rove through a heary blotk in the main
lop, and hauled taut by the steam-winch on deck,
lateral motion was prevented as far us possible
by guys made fast to the aides of the ship ; but
the motion of the vessel herself could not be
avoided, and the main dfficully was the long,
slow, couldsed swell which at the change of the
montooue seem in those sens to come from diffe
rent q iatersalonce. When B ondiuslood in the
maintop, pole in hand, he hesitated iong enough,
with one fool on the rope, to make many think
he hud repented, lor the task was difficult enough
to try even his ntrves. The mizzen is. of course,
lower than tho main, the steadying guy bad
pulled toe ropy down in the centre, so tli.it he
had to start down a rather sharp incline. Blondiu
is accustomed lo guide and 9teady himself by fix
ing bis eyes on tbe rope, uboul Iweuiy feel ahead ,
but what witb the rolling of the ship und the
vibration of tho powerful engines, the rope he hud
now to walk on was drawn into such contortions
that he described it as looking more like s snake
than a rope. Before he hud gone five yards he
was forced to sit down lo steady himself, aud
avoid two or three rollers which came in succes
sion. He rose on one leg. and it was worth
much to see the great muscle on the outside of
his thigh spring into bold relief. Twice again
he sul down, and then reached the mizzen mast
amidst hearty applause. This part of the journey
was made more difficult by ihe sun shining direct
ly in his eyes. His return wus quick and easy
nil be bad passed over three quivers of the dis
tance, when a swell caught the ship. He had to
stop, und sway from side to side '.ill beseemed to
be quite out of the perpendicular ; the lact being
that the masts and funnel by which lha eye was
guided were themselves out of the perpendicular.
Tho pole wavered violently, and once or twice
appeared to be held utmost straight up and down.
Much anxiety was felt, not only by the pussen
gers, but by Captain Angrovo aud the officer of
the ship. Blondin never lost his nerve, but
coolly waited till the troublesome rollers hud
passed, walked on und reuched the main mast in
safety. He says that his t.i-fc was a most difficult
one, and thai he could not have gone through uny
of bis usuul performances on such a rope as that.
Cuptain Augrove. who had cased the engines and
varied the course of the ship from time to time,
so us lo keep her a steady as possible, congratu
lated Bloudin warmly upon his safe descent.
I he whole thing wus gratuitous. Blondin'a only
recompense for having doue what no man did be
fore, being a unanimous vote of thank from the
passengers. Sydney Echo.

Go to bed ut regular hours. Get up a soon
as you wake of yourself.
Cruelty to faithful and sagacious animals is
one of the meanest and cowurdiest of crimes.
Any kind of fluid largely taken at a meal, or
soon after, is postively injurious to health.
Reader, study the laws of health and life, and
obey them, and you will soon be able to snap your
fingers at tbe doctors.
Let every man watch over bia habits : culti

which in tbe end destroy both body an soul.
A good wife is the greatest earthly blessing.
A man is what hir-. wife makes him. It is the

Cool off iu a place greatly warmer than the
one in which you have been exercising. This
simple rule would prevent incalculable sickness
and save millions of lives every year.
Soon after a meal is eaten the temperature of
the stomach is slightly increused, digestion goes
on healthily and well, and in four or five hours
the stomach is empty again.
A palatable and safe Summer drink for out
door workers is water of tho natural temperature
Bweetened with molasses. All root beer are
pernicious, for being without appreciable nutri
ment they cannot add to tlie strength of the body,
and their value is deceptive.
A clean tooth does not decay. Acids, sour
fruit, always injure the teeth instantly. Sweets
never do ; without them, children would die,
bence their insatiable instincts for sugar. If a
tooth-powder was never used tbe teeth would
not be ao white ; but kept perfectly clean, would
last for life.
If we eat just enough, both mind and body are
invigorated. If we eat too little, both become
weak and taint the body trembles, tbe mind is
insufficient ; if we eat too much, the stomach
cannot eliminate the material which is to give out
a pore carbon, and it then givea out an impure
article, and mind and body aro oppressed tbe
former loses it activity, the later its vigor.
Sleeping rooms should be selected in socb
parts of the house as hare the most benefit Irom
the rays of the sun. The bed and bed clothes
should be thoroughly aired and kept in tbe sun
a loog as possible every day. Many of tbe sleeping-rooms
in our hotels are so situated as never
to feet the influence of the son's rays, and those
who occupy socb rooms for any length of lime
are simply committing suicide.
Why a Haua .feeds a Wife.
It is not to sweep tbe house, make the bed
darn tbe socks and cook the meals chiefly, that
a man wants a wife. If this is all he needs,
hired help can do it cheaper than a wife. If this
is all, when a young man calls to see a young
lady, send himioto-the pantry to taste the bread
and cake she has made, send bim to inspect the
needlework and bed-making, or pot a broom into
bis bands and send him to witness its use. Such
things are important, and the wise young man
will quickly look after Ibem ; but what tbe true
man wants with a wife is her companionship,
sympathy and lore. The way of life bat many
dreary places in it, and man needs a companion
to go with him. A man is sometimes overtaken
with misfortune ; he needs some one to stand by
and sympathize. He has some hard battles to
fight witb poverty, enemies. and with Bin; and
be needs a woman that, when be pals bis arm
around her. he feels he bag something to fight
for ; she will help him to fight, that she will put
