A SOCIETY ROMANCE.
HOW THE VANDERBILT FAMILY FEUD
BEGAN AND ENDED.
nemarkaUle Omlnrai and Social
Suc.eiie o( tlie PialuUerltcd Son
and Ills Brilliant Wife- Reconcili
The rocont anuouncemcnt of the end
ing of the feud between Cornelius Van
derbilt and the other members of his
father's family caused a sensation in
social circles on both sides of the At
lantic. The estrangement between the
Vauderbilts began six years ago, when
young Cornelius, disobeying his fa
ther's command, announced his deter
mination to marry Miss Grace Wilson.
The announcement so infuriated the
elder man that the next day he sum
moned a lawyer and made a new will,
cutting off his eldest son with a few
hundred thousands and leaving the
bulk of his fortune to Alfred (iwynne.
his second son, whom he made head of
the house. A few days later Cornelius
seiior was stricken with the attack of
apoplexy which caused his death about
two years later.
At the cost of $50,000,000 and the os
tracism of his family young Cornelius
married the girl he loved. She is
several years older than her husband,
and this is said to have been the cause
of the objection to the match. She
is, however, a young woman of un
usual brilliance and of a family noted
for its good connections. One sister
had married Sir Michael Herbert, now
British ambassador at Washington: an
other Ogden Goelet, and Mr. Onne Wil
son, a brother, had married an Astor.
Alfred Gwj-uue Vanderbilt, the broth
er who becau; . head of the house and
who inherited the $r0.(X0,000 that Cor
nelius would have received, was chicly
responsible for the reconciliation. The
opportunity came last winter when
Cornelius was desperately ill. Alfred
made overtures for a friendly under
standing, which he had long desired to
His efforts were not successful until
all the Vanderbilts had made it clear to
Cornelius that they were willing to re
ceive his wife. His mother signified
her acceptance of this condition by
calling on her daughter-in-law last
February, just previous to the depar
ture of Cornelius and his wife to

nelius' Gancee was scorned by the hit
ter's family, have made it easy for the
Vanderbilts to reunite. Her social suc
cess has been as marked and biilliaut
as has that of her husband in business.
No Vanderbilt since his grandfather
has shown more solid ability and pluck.
He is credited with having doubled the
fortune he received from his father.
Young Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt has
outshone all the other Vanderbilt wom
en in a social way. She and her hus
band became the recipients of marked
courtesies from Emperor William on
three different visits to Germany. Re
cently at Kiel no Americans attending
the naval regatta there were shown
such special attention by the kaiser.
Young Vanderbilt sailed with him on
his yacht, the kaiser called on the
young couple and dined them and they
were at receptions which he and Prince
By special request of the emperor,
Prince Henry, -when he was here last
year, dined with Cornelius Vander
bilt, the only private function of the
kind which he enjoyed. This occasion
was one of the most brilliant of its
kind in New York society.
While at Dantzic recently on their
yacht, the North Star, Mr. and Mrs.
Cornelius received further evidences
of the kaiser's good will. Their visit
was made at the suggestion of Emper
or William, who directed the provincial
governor and commandant of the port
to show them every courtesy.
During their recent stay at St.
Petersburg Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt re
ceived marked attention. They were
dined by Grand Puke Boris at tha im
perial palace and were also enter
tained at dinner by the. Grand Duke
Michaelovltch. They in turn gave a
luncheon to Grand Duke Boris and
other members of the imperial Busslan
family on their yacht. North Star.
The reconciliation of the Vanderbilts
brings to an end a most romantic fami
ly quarrel and one which has attracted
more widespread attention than any
ever known in New York's millionaire
Public evidence of the reunion will
be given as soon as Cornelius and his
wife return to this country by a happy
family gathering at his mother's home
at Newjort. Here for the first time In
six years he will meet his brothers and
sisters, and here for the first time will
his wife be received as a member of
the family circle. It will be a crown
ing triumph for the younger Mrs. Vanderbilt.
A BIT OF PANTOMIME.
Max O'Rell'a Opinion of Foar Peo
ples Given In Gestures.
"When Max OTtell came to Montreal
some years ago," said a man from that
city to a Detroit Journal contributor,
"we fixed up a little joke on him." We
had noticed how gracefully he could
unite a caustic criticism with a compli
ment, a faculty that enabled him to
say the sharpest things without offend
ing the people he was criticising. We
were going to put the faculty to a test.
"We had him lunch with us, and
there were at the table besides himself
an Englishman, a Scotchman, an Irish
man and a French-Canadian. When
we got our guest oft his guard we de
manded an honest opinion of the differ
ent raws we represented. As the opin
ion had to be given in the presence of
all four, the situation for him was a
rather delicate one. But it never seem
ed to trouble him, and he gave his opin
ion without a moment's hesitation.
"The Scotchman,' he said, and he
clinched his right hand tightly and
pretended to try to force it open with
his left. 'The Englishman' and he
went through the same performance,
opening the hand at the end after an
apparent struggle. 'The Irishman'
and he held out his hand wide open,
with the palm upward. 'The French
man' and he made a motion with
both hands as if he were emptying
them on the table.
"There was not a word of explana
tion, but we all understood thoroughly
and had a hearty laugh. Max O'Kell
had maintained his reputation."
A Lincoln Joke.
One of Lincoln's visitors in the early
days of his administration says:
"He walked into the corridor with
us, and, as he bade us goodby and
thanked for what he had told him,
he again brightened up for a moment
and asked him in an abrupt kind of
waj", laying his hand as he spoke with
a queer but not uncivil familiarity on
his shoulder, 'You haven't such a thing
as a postmaster in your pocket, have
" stared at him In astonishment
and I thought a little in alarm, as If be
suspected a sudden attack of insanity.
Then' Mr. Lincoln went on: 'You see, it
seems to be kind of unnatural that you
shouldn't have at least a postmaster in
your pocket. Everybody I've seen for
days pist has had foreign ministers
and collectors and all kinds, and I
thought you couldn't have got in here
without having at least a postmaster
get into your pocket. " "The True

A curious instance of the wonderful
force exerted by growing vegetation is
related in the Gardeners' Magazine.
This force seems all the more remarka
ble when exerted by light and unsub
stantial mushrooms, but does not ap
pear so extraordinary when caused by
the expansion of a hard wood tree.
Some half hardy annuals were sown in

In the gardens of an English park and
the lights closed to hasten germination.
Some days afterward signs of cracking
were observed in the brickwork, and
gradually a block weighing in the ag
gregate one and one-half hundred
weight was pushed out of position.
After cutting out several bricks a mass
of mushrooms was found 3 pounds 3
ounces in weight growing in the center
of the wall. The mycelium had run
freely in the mortar and on the inner
face of the bricks.

IJavMIi'n Comet, Which Is Speeding

BorelH's . twin tailed comet, which
for the past four or five weeks has been
receiving the attention of astronomers
all over the world, is now visible to the
naked eye, although its long diaphanous
tail is not discernible without the aid
of a telescope. Scientists are particu
larly interested in the remarkable pho

were obtained by the astronomers at
the Yale observatorj
The Borelli comet is said by astrono
mers to be the finest that has been seen
in recent years. It was discovered by
Borelli, after whom it was named, in
Marseilles on June 21. Since that time
it has increased in brightness about
seventeen times and now has the bril-

The comet is traveling toward the sun
at a speed of about five degrees a day.
According to the measurements made
by the Yale observers, its head is about
500.000 miles iu diameter, and its dou
ble tail is at least r,0iHi0 miles long.
The Borelli comet is thf only impor

when the Itordame was discovered,
and is the brightest since Smith's
comet, which appeared altout twelve
years ago. It is now in its most bril

For several weeks, -however, it will

The photographs taken by the Yale
observers show a long tail that is not
visible to the naked eye. The nega

say that the comet is passing the earth
at a distance of about 2rt.OV.00O miles
and is traveling at a speed of twenty
five miles a second.
The comet is in the constellation
Draco, half way between the bowl of
the little dipper and the handle of the
