William K. and Frederick have been,
so to speak, join t regents, ihu heir ap
parent, the Crown Prince of the Van
derbilt dynasty, is Cornelius.
1 lie future railroad monarch is now
about thirty-live years of aire. Hi.s per
sonal ap)earanee is deeidtdly prepos
sessing. He is very tali, and has an
erect, slender and jf:iuefnl liirnre. His
hair and his eyes arc very dark and his
face, which is clean shaved, with the ex
ception of small, closely cut side whis
kers, shows strength and decision in
every line. He began his commercial
education as iv clerk in a broker's oilieo
in limad street, and after being thor
oughly grounded in the principles of
business was transferred to ono of the
clerical departments of the New York
Central Railroad in the Crand Central
Depot. There his position was bv no
means a sinecure, as he was obliged to
perform exactly the same duties" his
fellow clerks, whoso futures were less
brilliant, liy steady application and
natural business ability, without ono
particle of favor being shown him, ho
gradually rose sum bv tei. iias.sinrr bv
degrees from ono department to anoth
er and mastering successfully every
detail of railroad management, "until ho
had thoroughly fitted himself for tho ex
alted position he now holds. It is prob
ablo that no ono in this country is more
thoroughly conversant with" railroad
methods than lie is.
At his father's abdication Cornelius
became chairman of the board of direc
tors of the New York Central and pres
ident of tho "Nickel Plate." In addi
tion, he i.s a director to countless other
roads. When quite young he married
Miss (Iwyn, of Philadelphia. He has
now four children, the eldest of whom
is about eleven years of age.
The second son, William Kissani Van
derbilt, tho head of the Lake Shore
Road, somewhat resembles his eldest
brother in personal appcaranee.without,
however being able to lay claim to tho
same amount of good looks. Ho seems
to have a wonderful jinwer of grasping
the mo.st dillicult business problems. Ji
was said of him tho oilier dav bv a
prominent railroad man that the "rapid
ity with which he could analyze ques
tions involving tho consideration of a
half dozen conflicting interests and al
most instantly arrive at an unerring
conclusion was simply marvelous and
made it really a pleasure to do busmen
with him. He is an indefatigable work
er and devotes almost the whole of hi,
time to railroad affairs. Like his grand
father, he is a great lover of eanis and
hor-es, but his taste in lnu-srllesli, is un
like the Commodore, very Kngli.sh. He
is a strong supporter of the turf so fur
as running horses arc concerned, but
cares nothing f,,r trotters. Ho married
a Miss Smith, of Mobile, and has three
children. Of late years hu has gone
much into fashionable society, particu
larly among the Knglish set, his wife
being a relative by marriage of Ladv
Mandeville. His house ut Islip is man
aged after the fashion of uu Knglish
country home. In fact, he seems to bo
a strong supporter of the prevailing

rector in most of the roads controlled
by the family, but holds no executive
position and does not take a very active

Wonderful Instinct in Bees.
Manv interesting accounts have been
written of the wonderful instincts of
loncv bees -sonic, in fact, which would
ilniost tend to prove that they possess
ed reasoning facultie.s. An Australian
dceejier contributes to the Una m-
'amkr the fo)ouinr intere-iin ' inci-
ent, illustrative of the sagacity of these
oiiderful little insect,: "A iieighhorof
mine w ho l.c -p., bees m bar-frame hives

plus store, but noticing a few davs af-
rward tne honey running from the en
ance to the hive, and tins bees (dogged

the came, when he found the bees in so
woful a plight that he knew not what
to do, and was quite disheartened. He
mentioned the mailer to me and I went
to hi.s assistance. I found the hive in a
dreadful state; the frames were Very
large, and the weight of honey propor
tionally ei-cal; hc combs had fallen
down, and the honey had been set free.
Thousands of bees were suffocated and
smeared with the honey, and it was a
work of some diliictilty to set matters
right. On the floor id the hive, and
floating in the escaped honey, were
dozens of white grubs, which had evi
dently been forcibly drawn from the
colls by the bees, and the reason they
sacriticed their progeny appears to b"e
that, linding themselves overwhelmed
with the disasterthat had befallen them
and having tilled every available crevice
with the overflowed 'honey, they had
found it neccsary to empty the ec!l of
tho young brood 'in order to tin I space
to store the balance until the wreck
could be repaired. There was reason,
certainly, for what they did, an I the
fact has not, perhaps, been noticed be
fore because the people who kept bees
for observatory purposes would never
