That he had some social Instincts is
Indicated by the fact that ho was a

Eventually Schrank sold his business.

affection, died in 1911, and about the
same time Domlnlck Flammang died,
leaving Schrank worth 136,000.
MOVED TO BROOKLYN TO BE
(trhrank lived alone In the Elghty-firot
treet house, shut up and brooding
again. He disappeared one day. None
of his old Tenth street acquaintances
heard of him after that until the news
came of hla attack on Col. Rooaevelt
ehrank, however, only went to Brook
lyn and took lodging at the 'Old Home

Centra streets, convenient to the ceme
tery, where he still spent hours at his
aunt's grave. He lived at '.he "Old
Homestead" until last January. Shortly
bsfore leaving he asksd Edward Lurln

collect the rents at the Eighty-first

letters from Germany, but never di
