Oystkr Bar, L. I., Jan. lU.-Tbe little
old-fasliloneU bouse in .which flbe aged
Townsend couple were so brutally assault
ed presented a dreti r appnaranoe to-day.
Tbe little knucker on tbo dooi was wrap
ped I ocloih and tied fast. The curtains
were olosely Urawu and passers by walked
softly over froren vround. Mr. Town
tend remained uncoussloui the greater part
of tbe Digbt aud only at intervals would re
cognliu tbose about ber ami
repeat tbe name of t)T as
sailant, "Uappalee did It; Kappaee
did It." A 'ter saying that she would drop oil
in a stupor. Mr. James C. Townnend ud
deoly revalued coDdounet at 4 o'clock
tbli a, m., but It was only for a moment.
He opened his eyes and then dropped off
to sleep. In the old-fabloned kitchen
many members of the Townsend family
were seated in front of tbe spacious fire
place, built deep Into tbe wall, with lbs
old ksttle-botilt still remaining. Not a
word was spoken. Tbe Utile pool of blood
on tbe carpel had been washed away.
BUT TUB CRIM80M STAIN
still remained visible. In the little room
next to the kltcben, stretched upon a low
couch, lay old Mr. Townsend. Nesr by
stood a little table containing a few simple
stlmulauts, which were adininis SHd from
timet time. Uii face bore a p'artd look,
a If in deatb. On bis left cheek, extend
Ing from the car far down, was a dark,
abraded spot, a deep gasb covered bis ore
beau, and tbe back of bis rltfht
band bore a deep cut, evidently re
ceived as he raited bit band to ward
off the a-saMliTt blows. A oloter exam
ination made by tbe Doctor revealed a Jag
ged deprcsHlon shaped like the hammer
head whUh was found near by. It wai
deemed wise to refrain from making an ex
tended examination of Mrs. TowDtend's
Injuries, as ber condition was considered
too precarious. Only a tasty diagnosis was
made In ber case. From tbe contracted
condition of tbe pupils and their failure to
respond to light, Dr. Sandt considered
that she was suffering from a severe shock,
that might terminate fatally at any moment.
He expressed himself more favorably for
CHANCES OF RECOVKRT.
Tbe old gentleman revived under tbe doc
tor's treatment and was able to lake a
little nourishment. It It believed tbat even
if be should recover be will never regain
hit - mental vigor; the patt Is perfectly
blank to blm. Late In tbe ifwnoon ht
ipoks for tbt first time, when he faintly
begged to tee bit wlie, wblon request of
course bad to bt denied. At about J: JO
o'clock Mrt. Townsend was taken with
violent oonvulilont, and, though the tub
lequeotly recovered somewhat, Drt. Frye,
Sands, Fallon and Whitney declared her
condition to be very critical. It It doubt

TUB CHIEF TOPIC Of DISCUSSION
In Wall street, in business circlet, la clubt
and in hotels it tbe ditappearance of
Charles Deimonlco. Although he was not
t public man or even a prominent man in
the legitimate sense of the word, bis busi
ness brought blm In frequent contact witb
tbe leading men in politics, finance, society
tnd commerce, tnd it is ntturtl tbat all
those men should take tn Interest in tbe
fate that befall bim. Apart from bit bus
iness position, however, Charles Delmonico
rendered himself popular in bis younger
years among til sorts of men by certain
personal characteristics seldom to be met
with in persona In bis walk of life. He wai
genltl and liberal to a ftult. His courtesy
and cordiality were almost boundless:
More than tbat, be was t man of iutelll
gence tnd no mean intellectual aspirations.
3nin eight or ten years ago be devoted
every hoi r of leisure
TO LITERATURE AND ART.
He brought every picture be could spare
the money for, frequently to give tbem to
bit trends; be over missed a good ex
hibition and finally started one of his
nephews in the picture dealing business.
He stole nightly an bofir or two of his rest
to read some new book and tbe book was
usually something more solid than a novel.
One day be found a friend reading Herbert
Spencer's voluim on elocution. He took
it away, read It through several times,
and was full of it for months afterward.
Tbe reading of tblt book induced bim i ven
to try tbe other works of Spencer, at well
as those of H. T. Buckle. He knew some
of the brlebtesi son oef Berangertnd Mux
set by besrt. Painters, writers, actors,
musicians were always welcomed at his
bouse. Some of the newspaper men were
bis chums fur years, and be took even t
pecuuiary Interest in several literary ven
tures, notably among tbem tbe Arcadian.
By tod by, however, ts the business of tbe
Hit 1NTETBST IN IT INCREASED,
he began to lose tbe taste botb for litera
ture tnd trt. The movement of the firm's
up-town establishment from Fourteenth tn
Twenty-iixtb street, seems to btve ended
bis Intellectual aspirations. He gave up
both books and pictures. Business and
ttock special atlo n were til be teemed to
care for. The dally newspapers, and once
t week the Real Estate Record, satisfied
blm thoroughly. Finding bim one day ab
sorbed lu tbe Record, t friend asked bim
whether tbat was bis Bucklo and Spencer
now. "Yes, "was the answer, "and I'll
tell you why. Because, If I find here that
you or anybody else took out a chattel
mortgage, I put a stop to his account at
tbe office, and d -d quick, too." Step
by step tblnge grew worst and worse witb
Charles Deimonlco. He became
DESPOTIC WITH HIS EMPLOYES,
and abusive toward some of his oldest
frtendt. After bit Uncle Lorenzo bad
g veu him half interest in the whole busi
ness of tbe firm, be seemed to care for noth
ing but money. He gave up social games of
cards, of wbicb be btd been very tond.
He began to be t big speculator. Stock,
grain, pork, oil, cotton, everything tbat
could be bought or told In speculation be
came tn object of deep interest to blm.
He btd open accounts tn more than adoxen
offices down town, and never teemed to
know bow be stood. . He made t great
deal of money in tbe boom of 1880, and the
subsequent death of his uncle made bim t

re-elected, and tbat I didn't like tbe prac

and Capt. B. spent the day running back
wards and forwardi explaining and apolo
gizing, greatly to our amusement. Of
