And the other woman? She is handsome,
but possesses, none of the regal beauty and
the queenly dignity of the wife.
She was at the bedside of the millionaire
when he died: the wife was at Southamp
ton. She wears deepest mourning now; tho
wife's dress has no somber note.
Mr. Lorillard met Mrs. Allien, or Mrs.
Barnes, alter his wife had left his home.
There seemed to be a mutual sympathy be
tween them, for they were close companions
tmtll the man's death. They were abroad
together, and In East Thirty-first street a
house was magnificently furnished and be
stowed upon Mrs. Allien. There the woman
and her father and brother lived, and are
till living, upon the proceeds of wealth be
fctowed upon Jtra. Allien by the millionaire.
It is not to be supposed that Mrs. Loril-
lard was ignorant of this condition, of af
fairs. The Intimate friendship of her hus
band and Mrs. Allien was well known to
her. She knew of the East Thirty-first
street house; she knew of the trips abroad;
she knew ot all that was happening.
There were stories which Mrs. Lorll
lard denies with such emphasis as to
brand them as false that the wife had up-m-alded
the other woman. Mrs. Lorillard
ea s she never saw nor spoke to Mrs. Allien.
There were other stories that It was his
infatuation for Mrs. Allien that led to the
' estrangement between Mr. and Mrs. Loril

bedside when hr died at th Fifth Avenue

that whUo Mrs. Allien was at the side of
the dying millionaire, she was at Southamp

Perhaps the story of Lorillard and Mrs.
'Allien would never have been told except at
clubs and In boudoirs had It not been for the
provisions in his will bestowing Bancocas
and his stables of Una horses upon Mrs.
Allien. Had he given her money, or prop

hers would law 'been left to enjoy his
'bounty. Bat when he named her In his
'win a a'beneflostty, and bestowed upon her
the famous Lorillard place, Bancocas, and
the famous Lorillard stables, there was an
end to effort to conceal the sound of the
rattling ot the family skeleton's dry bones,
and the hideous thing was brought from tho
closet. Mrs. Lnrillard and her daughters
were most bitterly wounded by the discov
ery that the document which contained their
names contained also the name of Mrs.
imn, and their pride was brought to arms
by the attempt to bestow tar-famed Ban
cocas upon one who they thought had no
honorable right to receive the title to It. It
Is for the retention ot Bancocas that Mrs.

Is scarcely less than In Rancocas, and there
is thought to be a certainty that, even
though Mrs. Lorillard should not contest
the will, ono of her daughters, the wife ot
T. Suffern Taller, will do bo. Mr. Taller
has long been desirous ot possessing the
Lorillard stables, as he Is as enthusiastic a
horseman as was his father-in-law. Mr.
Lorillard had no Ioe for his daughter's
husband, and many have been the occa
sions when he has made this tact manifest.
It was not expected that ho would bestow
the stables upon Mrs. Taller, but it is
thought that the Tailers may bo given con
trol or the stables bi mutual consent of the
rest of the family. In the event that Mrs.
Allien is denied the right of a beneficiary
by the courts. j
So far Mrs. Allien has made no effort to
gain possession of Rancocas. Mrs. Loril

Tho first waining of the accident was an
awful Jolt of tho reversing lever held by tho
left hand of Engineer Tom Bole. Imme
diately the throttle was pushed back, and
the engineer's hand grabbed for the air
brake. It was useless, having been ren
dered so by tho breaking of the axle.
The engineer and Tlreman Gehr sprang
for tho emergency brake, and put the air
on hard. But there seemed to be no slack
ening of the terrific speed. Steam was
pouring from holes In the boiler; the de
tached driver, dragged along by the fast
revolving lever, was hammering the engine,
ripping out cattle guards, smashing off the
ends of the rails, and threatening every sec
ond to throw the engine from tho track,
send the train to destruction and the pas
sengers to death.
lard says she is barred from it by the ex
ecutors, and that she has not been permit
ted to set foot upon it since the death of
the man who sought to give it to her.
Friends of Mrs. Allien declare that she has
not attempted to take possession of tho
famous etock farm. Sho is familiar with
the provisions of the New Jersey law, which
does not require executors to turn over such
property to the beneficiary until tho expira
tion of a j car, and, they say, will make no
effort to secure possession in adv ance.
But what will Fhe do with Rancocas if
she retains It? That is a question in which
many persons aro greatly interested.
It is said she may be able to sell tho
famous stock farm to advantage, but the
prediction is made that if site should at
tempt to run it herself she will discover
that tho bounty of Pierre Lorillard has sup- I

and the water streamed from tho boiler,
leaving a pressure 01 1G0 pounds of steam
and a roasting fire in tho furnace. There
was imminent danger of an explosion, or,
at least, a burnt-out boiler. So Boyle and
Gehr began to fight down the furnace fire.
And still tho terrific speed seemed not to
slacken, rive, ten, twelve telegraph poles
had been passed, and lets than two rods
au&y was a high embankment. Pieces of
hteel from tho engine wero flying hither
and on, broken off by tho hammering of
the big driver; splinters from tho broken

Every 3ecord it seemed that tho driver
must break away fiom the rod which held
it and cither go sailing out upon the right
of way or, falling beneath tho wheels ot
tho locomotive, throw it from the track to
pull the rest of the train off with it, and
pile cars, passengers and crew into a mass
of wreckage, pain and death.
Tho sixteenth telegraph pole was passed
and the speed slackened notably: the air
had "taken hold" and tho tightly clinched
wheels of tho six-car train, after eliding
along over tho track for hundreds of yards
by the 'momentum of the cars, were still
held fast. At tho seventeenth polo the train
hid slowed down to fifteen miles an hour,
and the looser-od driver was bumping

consume greenbacks at the rate of $3,000 a
month and result ultimately In dissipating
whatever fortune she possesses.
It is pointed out that the value of Ban
cocas depends upon its prestigo as a Loril
lard croation. the ability of its manage
ment and the performances of the horses it
produces. At present, it Is said, tbero are
about seventy-five yearlings, mares with
foal and stallions on Bancocas, and twenty
on the English turf.
Few of them are remarkable for speed,
and it is not believed that any will emulato
the performances of Iroquois, that Ranco
cas product which won tho Derby in 1S31
and enjoyed the distinction of being the
first American horse to carry off that cov
eted trophy of tho English turf. Not that
alone, but the death of Mr. Lorillard, the
owner and nominator of these horses wb'ch
pass to Mrs. Allien, cancels all their stake
engagements, and thereby greatly lessens
There Is .no trulh in the story that Ran

such things should have happened and the

The conductor, tho brakeman and the pas

them grew almost hysterical. They crowded
about the engineer and fireman and over

the certainty of death If the train had not

to again overwhelm tho blushing engineer

always was a source of great expense to
him, and Mrs. Allien, however much she
may bo attached to the farm. Is not in a
position to expend $35,000 a year for its
maintenance. With the prestige of tho Lor
illard name attached to it and the first
class system of maintenance sustained by
tho millionaire, it is a valuable property;
but with those two things removed it will
fall In value to the level of surrounding
property in Johnstown, the difference in tho
value of buildings, of course, being consid
ered. Mr. Lorillard spent moro than a quarter
of a million dollars on Rancocas, and It is
not worth more than $130,000 to-day.
For a man of tho world Mr. Lorillard was
extremely practical, and ho was successful
In tho general development of Rancocas.
He always looked ahead, and his wisdom
In this connection has borne excellent fruit,
as Rancocas Is to-day without a peer as far
as appointments go to make up a breeding
establishment. Mr. Lorillard spent money
lavishly on his farm, but he had excellent
original ideas In making these expenditures.
It was in June, 1873. that ha purchased
Rancocas stock farm, at Jobstown, N. J.
The estate is located on a branch railroad,
some fifteen miles from Trenton, in a sec
tion of beautiful rolling country, and finely
adapted by nature for farming, with a rich,
fertile soil that would grow most anything.

it was not until the next morning that
Engineer Boyle and Fireman Gehr left

enough to keep the stock Indoors for any

wore leased, making the entire domain 1.C00

and young trees planted nearly thirty years
ago now afford shade and give a setting to
the estate that it did not have before Mr.
Lorillard began to spend his money on the
place. Strips of woodland were planted, and
Bancocas was gradually developed on a
most comprehensive scale.
The mansion where Mr. Lorillard lived
(and entertained his friends is a medlum
eized country house, with all of the home
comforts that could be wished for, and
with rooms easily accommodating about a.
dozen guests. Tho house is partly sur

Mr. Lorillard took a great deal of prldo in

and Judgment in this respect. He had his
own prlvato stable for his harness horses
and pleasure riding, and his stable was

WRITTEN1 TOR THB BONDAT REPUBLIC.
At a friendly little gathering a few days
ago the discussion turned upon odd math
ematical problems, and after many had
been propounded and solved one young
man asked why, when the digits of a two
plaoe number were reversed the difference
between the two numbers was always ex
actly divisible by nine. Several of the
party Insisted that this was not so except
In the case of multiples of, nine, such as
18 reversed to SI, 27 reversed to 72. and so
on, but it was found, after testing various
combinations of two digits, that whether
or not the numbers themselves were ex
actly divisible by nine the difference be
tween tho two invariably was.
Much interest was manifested in this dis
covery, and brains were severely cudgeled
to find the true explanation, but after many
attempts, none of which resulted In a sat-,
isfactory solution, the mystery remained
as 'great as ever when the party broke up.
Ndt being able, after giving long thought
to the matter, to find the true explanation,
I submitted the problem to a friend with
a mathematical turn of mind, and after a
few moments of cogitation he answered
me as follows:
"The number nine possesses many odd
characteristics well known to mathemati
cians and made use of by them in proving
complicated calculations. One of these is
that, when divided into any number that
will not contain It an exact number of
times without leaving a remainder, that

forever In the goldan real of thoroughbred

winning stake events.
One ot the finest builcgs everplanned
for a racing stable waaurned some flva
years ago. It stood qultcose to tho man
sion and had accommojons for about
sixty horses. It had a tie-lap track laid
out Inside of the circulahaped building,
and was protected by an 'erhangtng roof.
A short distance from (iinanslon ax thai
two race tracks, one o; rt and the other
laid out on the tort. , dirt track to a
third of a mile, whilito course on th
turf la a full mile, and,1 a on these tracks
that the produce of Licocas la trained.
The breeding stables j present have ac
commodations for abo260 horses at least
there are that many t stalls. Instead of
having the breeding eiuoted in ono great
stable, the buildings id for this purpose
are scattered over tbsstate, with each,
stable having from S to seventy acres
of land, so that the;esemMe so many
plantations. A featunf the breeding at
Bancocas Is that lnstl of paddocks, tho
customary adjunct of iedlng stables. Mr.
Lorillard was a firm biver in open range.
Mr. Lorillard had tvobjects in view In
the manner in which laid out his breed

tect his stock in hot ather. and ha ac
complished this end bjtantlng trees; and.
secondly, he wanted nty of ranga for
young stock, aa they relop better under
theso conditions than ey would in pad
docks. The barns for alliens were also
put up to stay, and thi construction was
regardless of expense, that to-day they
are almost as good as ti first built. The.
idea of having the bungs separated is
that in caso of fire the, tire outfit would
not bs wiped out.
The stable for yearlings said to be the
most magnificent struct) of its kind In
I the world. It has a grelass roof, with
a floor area almost as rg8 as Madison
