JAY GOULD AND HIS DETECTIVE. ri
& Funny Story About the Millionaire and ti
How Ho Travels. a
(Fomthe News and Courier.) a
It would appear that a fair propor
ion of Jay Gould's hours of idleness o
is spent in the faccinating occupation
Df stock jobbing. In other words, he v
is always himself. Jav Gould only
spent a few hours in Charleston, but if
the report be true, he was even than B
plotting to "unload" to the advantage c<
of himself and his prospective heirs. n
A correspondent d, the New York h
Times, writing from Uha:leston, says:
".Dispatche, were lately sent from
this city representing that he had
changed his plais so far this winter as
to decide to give up his yachting trip
and go on an iIspectioin tour over the
Southern Pacito lines. For the very
reasons that have been indicated al
ready this report was untrue. le
had no thought of miakinig a Southerin
Pacific trip. The statement that lie
hiad was used onliy for a peg to hang a
stock jobbing schemne upon."
The correspond(enit, hiowever', does
not "itemize the bill" and leaves the
pnblic in the dark as to the deOtails of
the stock-jobbin g scheme. The Times
enrrespondenit further states thait Mr.
Gould oni his trip here "brought, be
sides5 his family and his doctor, an
other guest, a iman of ret iring mannier,
who was never seen with the exenr
sitimmsts, but who was, for all that, in
Mr*. Gould's estimantion, aii imnportant,
membter of the trauvelings party. This
man of the retiring manner was a pri
vate detective, a doughty, middle-aged
tellow of experience, who draws a
yearly salary out of' Jay Gould's till."
T1his "man of retiring manner" was
not on exliitition in Charleston, at
least wheni the great multi-milinlre
went abroad in the public places,
whbilre, tundcr ordinary circumstances,
Mr. Goulid might be expected to go ini
tear and trembling.
.The Times discredits the story of
its coirespondent, and iroiially says:
"As for Mr. Gould's carrying a private
detective on his yacht, that does not
indicate that lhe goes in fear of his life.
ile is in no0 danger of attack at sea

DEXTER, TEXAS, March 15, 1885
BLOOD BALK Co.: It i$ a great pleasure
us to state to you that your B. B. B,
ikes the lead of all blood puriflers in this
yuntry, on account of the cures it has
ffected since we have handled it. We had
case of scrofula in our neighborhood, of
ing standing, who had used all patent
edicines w ich were recommended to
im; besides this, he also had several doe
>rs attending him, but everything failed
effect any good. le grew worse every
ay, and had not left his bed for the last
x months. We had seen him several
mes in our little town, though it has been
lore than fifteen months since we last saw
Ii, and we suppose this was the last time
e was able to some to town, as he lives
bout elit miles In the country. His
amo is Servenka, and we got a neighbor
t his to persuade himt to try B. B. B , and
fter using only ONE BOTTLE lie left his
ed for the first time in six months.
To the present time ho has used less
ian three bottles, and lie is walking
round visiting his friends in the neighbor
sod. He has gained strength and flesh
tpidly. All scrofulous sores are healing
nely and you never saw a hap per man
ian i:e s. Nearly everybody for miles
round has heard of this wonderful cure,
id ai who need a blood remedy call for
ie 13. B. 11.
We had a case of nasal catarrh in our
wn family (a little girl of four years old),
ho has been using B. B. B. for about two
eeks, and already seems to be about well.
We have only three bottles left, and
ant you to ship us six dozen bottles.
We take pleasure in recommending
B. B. as a medicine worthy of the entire
mnfidenee of the public. Its action Is
ore rapid than any blood remedy we ever
andled. LIEDTKE BROS.
