A Wonderful Flower Garden
A reporter lately visited Jay Gould's
conservatory at Irvington, on the
Hudson, which was to replace the one
destroyed by fire over a year ago. Mr.
Gould's hobby is horticulture, and with
limitless means at his command he
pursues it with the same enthusiasm
that other men bestow on fast horses.
Last winter a list of new plants, cov
ering almost every variety of vegeta
tion, was made out, and this sp.ing
an enormous collection was imported.
It is Mr. Gould's intention to have at
least one specimen of every flowering
plant known. The main building is '
over four hundred feet long It has ,
several wings eighty feet long, the .
temperature in ca h of which is regu-!
lated independently of the adjoining .
sections. By this means fruit and
grapes can be insured all the year !
round, as the vine can be kept in dif-'
ferent stages of devJ'pmcnt. The
conservatory contains over four thou-!
sand variety of plants. Th re is room
for twice that number. The gardener
estimates there are from six to ciht
thousand plants in the conservatory '
and on the grounds, which are five i
hundred acres in extent. Th majority j
the Kuropean conservat ri., especially
ot tne plants have been brought lrom
from Belgium. In one room there are uo Ja "inu "J"
one hundred varieties of double gc rani- &old bncks worth over $n0
urns in full bloom. Ones ctionighty The extreme western boundary of

this year one hundred thousand dol

millions have already been spent to
make the place what it is.
The Majority Crazy,
Dr. Ball, in a lecture before the Paris
Faculty of Medicine, argu d that the
number of persons perfectly reasonable
on all points throughout the entire
period of their existence form but a
minority of mankind. The world
abounds with.peopl', he tells us," whom
a strict scientific diagnosis would con
demn as mad, or more or less "touched;"
yet at no time of their life would it be
permissible to put them under restraint.
And the lecturer gave numerous in
stances of what he calls "the tyranny
of a fixed idea' a nong persons ordina
rily rational and supposed to have full
control of their faculties. One sufferer,
he says, feels an unctuous sensation all
over his body, and takes it into his
h-ad that he has been dipped in grease.
Another, a stiuUous, iate 1 gent young
man, is oblig d to give up reading al
together, because each time he turns
over a pago he imagine ? he has skipped
a leaf. Back he is obliged to go again,
aga.n the fancy returns, and so he
never makes progress. Dr. Cabade had
once a patient whom hj described as an
excellent man of business, who never
theless found himself unable, though
free from the slightest phsd weak
ness, to perform some of the simplest
cast of daily Lfe. He could not cros3 the
threshold of his doer without being
pus'ied from behind. He could not
rise f i'om his char without calling for
help. In the street his progress was
liable to be stopped at any moment by
some imaginary obs acle, which no ef
fort of the will woidd enable him to
cross. Every one numbers among his
acqua'ntances some one who never
tires of talking of imaginary ailments
from which he is suffeiintr. Many a
medical student has baen driven hali
crazy from fancying that he had him
self the symptoms of the different dis
eases which his books described.
Perfectly sane people suffer from
hallucinations of one sort or other.
Lelorgne de Savlgny was afflicted with

painful a character that he at last shut
himself in a dark room and passed the

failed of obtaining relief in any other
We read in the Church Union that
a gentleman had his boots blacked by
one of two boys and gave the shiner a
f 2 bill to get changed. After waiting
some time he said to the other boy.
Where's your partner?" "Oh," said
the youth, with a grin, "he's bust up,
and I'm his assignee."
