Act of Courtesy That Paid
James H. Rutter's Simple Kindness
to Sidney Dillon Repaid in a Way
That Relieved Him From
When William H Vanderbilt. son
of the Commodore. resigned the pres
idency of the New York Central rail
road In order to become chairman of
the board of directors, he was suo
zeeded as president by James H. Rut
ter. Mr Rutter began his career as
a railroad employe as station and
freight agent at a little town upon the
Erie railroad. He was promoted rap
idly and at last became an assistant
freight traffic manager in the main of
ices of the Erie at Pavonla, near Jer
sey City. A few years later Mr. Rut
ter became general freight manager
under Commodore Vanderbilt and
gained a national reputation as a rail
way man-a reputation, in fact, as one
of the most successful railway man
agers of his day. His ability always to
mind his own business, and not to
interfere with anybody else's business.
be once said, had helped greatly to
win him success. But there was an
other reason for his success, and that
was his kindness of heart, his affa
bility and consideration for others,.
even for the humblest of his employes.
And it was this trait which brought
to Mr. Rutter unexpected and much
needed assistance in a financial crisis
of his career.
When Commodore Vanderbilt tempt
ed Mr. Rutter away from his service
with the Erir railroad and made him
freight trarc manager of the New
York Central, Mr. Ratter thought he
could afford to buy a house in New
York eity, and he did purchase a mod

the Grand Central station, paying some
cash and giving a purchase money

the vigor he displayed from 1853 to
1857 to apprebending fugitive slaves
and returning them to their owners.
But, lo and behold when Marshal Rhyn

But this is no new experience. Fifty
years ago there were a number of best

At last I said to myself:
"'Senator Seward is down on the
fugitive slave law He doesn't want
to see any fugitive slave arrested. I
will see to It that there won't be any
arrested while I am marshal,. and I
will do it in this way: If I get a
warrant for the arrest of a fugitive
slave. I will cause that fact to be
widely circulated. I will let the fu

they can get him out of the way.
"I pledged myself to do this, and
I did do it. And It is true, as you
have heard. that not one fugitive slave
was arrested in New York between
1857 and 1861. That was the wae I
paid Senator Seward for the kindness
he did me."

writer who has put earnings from

Robinson put a considerable part of
his earnings from his very popular fe

close of the Civil war."
Solon Robinson! I had not beard
that name for so long a time that I
had almost forgotten that he was at
one time deemed a very successful
writer of romances, one of his books
having a sale in excess of one hundred
thousand copies and standing a good
second for some years to "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" in point of popularity.
Solon Robinson was born on a
scraggy tfarm in eastern Connecticut.
and learned the carpenter's trade
when a boy. He gave that up when
he was-aouL man and became a
pedler. That shift strange as it
may seem. was the turning point of
his career, and bow this was the case
Solon Robinson, in the latter years of
his life. used frequently to tell his
friends in these words:
"If I have had any success as a
writer, it was due to the opportunities
which my early carer as a pedler
throughout Connecticut gave me As
a pedler I used to take great interest
in quaint, original characters whom I
met. and I learned in that way the
habit of observation and of discrimi
nating observation. I learned, too, a
great deal about farming, and I began
to write something for the newspapers
descriptive of farming life. In that
way I became acquainted with Horace
Greeley and be offered me a place
upon the New York Tribune.
"Well, the same habit of observa

a pedler I adoited when I accepted
Greeley's offer and became a newspa

things--quaint. humorous and pathe

sketch based upon something which
I saw. It was printed the next day
It seemed to touch a popular chord,
and I was asked to expand the sketch
and did so. In that way my book.
'Hot Corn,' was written and sold In
excess of a hundred thousand copies
within a year.
It was nothing but a little sketch
of New York life as I saw It, and I
never should have written that story,
or, In fact, done any other writing, but
for the happy necessity which com.

Old Taylor House Wi Be Made

been a tenement house, inhabited
principally by foreigners. The lower
floor of the Taylor house was last
used as a butcher shop.
It is quite probable that there is
more interest attached to this Taylor
house than to the home of any other
signer of the famous document. It Is
for this reason that the Easton chap

Revolution are making such efforts to
preserve this once famous building.
This society has purchased the home
and will convert it into a museum. As
a nucleus for the proposed collection,
they already have some relics of Tay
