STORIES OF OELRICHS
Club Man's Anxiety Over Gift
of a $75 Bouquet.
DEVOTED TO ALL 0UTD00E SP0BTS
Trgnaatlantle SMPfJ Story of One
of the Noted Athlete's Swlmmlag
Fcjtta Suceeaaful Culinary Experi
ment In Making a. Welsh Rarebit at
a Rettanrant-Ilia Offer ConcrminE
Man ESatlaa Sharks.
TJie late Hermann Oelrichs, who was
a famous athlete, club man, steamship
manager and society man, some time
ago tolda story on himself of rather
an expensive bouquet, says a San
Francisco co-respondent of the New
York Mall. There was a charming
young Woman out In San Francisco
from New York, and a dinner was
given In her Honor. The wine was
capital, the music good, the conversa
tion wrfa witty, and the flowers were
l?aiftlful. Great masses of American
Beauty roses were piled upon the table
with an (Extravagance that to the New
York girl seemed ruinous. She won
dered if the hostess was going Into
bankruptcy and made an observation
to that effect to her companion at din
ner. "Oh, no," eagerly explained Mr. Oel
rlchs, "flowers are absolutely without
value In California flowers, fruit and
"Is It possible?" answered the girl.
"What a jolly place to live in! I love
"Do you?" answered Oelrichs. I
stated that the wine was good. The
lady was also lovely. So be added:
"Tomorrow morning I. shall give my
self the privilege of sending you some
of" the prettiest flowers I can find.
Which are your favorites?"
"Orchids," she answered coyly, and
murmured, "How nice of you!" .
Oelrlchs felt that at that moment the
young lady should have all the orchids
the florists could supply and told her
bo. When morning came he had not
forgotten his promise, and he strolled
from his club to a florist's. lie select
ed a few dozen orchids, penned soine
thiag pleasant on a card and sent
them to her hotel. Thm he asked, for
the bill and found that his dinner
promise had cost him only $75. Of
course thut was nothing to an heir to
the Fair estate, but still he could not
help being cognizant of the fact that
the-young lady would be grateful. So
he" waited for her message of thanks.
Afternoon, evening, one day and two
days found him still waiting. He
caHed up all the servants of the club.
No message bad arrived. Finally he
wont'totiie florist. The flowers had
been received by her. She left town
and went to Mexico. "After nearly
three "weels of. waiting Mr. Oelrlchs
receivod Mils message from the City
"It was so nice of you to recollect to
send me the flowers. You are really a
curiosity a man who keeps a promise.
"Now," said Mr. Oelrlchs, "do you
think women are grateful?"
TALKS TO MONKEYS.
Professor Garner- Holds Daily. Coa
verse With Them In Jansle.
That Professor Garner Is still Insist
ent In his belief that animals converse
with each other was learned in Balti
more recently when his son, Harry E.
Garner, received a letter from the pro
fessor, who is buried in the jungles of
Africa. Garner has been laughed at
ever since he built a cage and talked
with or pretended, to talk with mon
keys in the African forests.
In order to develop his theory that
monkeys talk like human beings the
professor has built a house aliout 150
miles inland from the iort of Fernan
Vax, In the French Kongo, says the
New York Tress. He is the only white
man within many miles of the spot.
Ho is a great favorite with the na
tives, who call him "God of the Gun."
In the letter just received the profess
or writes Interestingly of his life in
"I recently, lost the dearest little girl
monkey that I ever saw," he wrote.
"I called her Dinkle. I bought , her
when she was about two days old and
reaped her by hand. She was very
affectionate, and never left me for a
minute when she could avoid it.
"I learned more of the speech - of
monkeys from Dlnkie than I ever
learned from any other specimen.
"If you will come here and sit down
In my Jungle you can hear some voices
without going Into the Jungle. I have
stood h'ere at my door perhaps a hun
dred times and shouted to chimpan
zees and monkeys In the bush and had
them answer me as often. Not an hour
of the day passes that I fail to hear
them talking In the forest as I sit
"I have done little shooting for the
last eighteen months, because there
are no good plains near by, and hunt
ing In the forest Is hard work. I have
shot a good many of the wild peacock
and hornblll toucan, because I needed
them to eat."
Lonely life in the Jungle has made
a philosopher as well as an Investiga
tor of the professor. Here are some
quotations from the letter:
"Bad health Is a misfortune; bad
luck is a misnomer. The latter Is the
npeloglc name of indifference or Ina
bility. "The man who tries to do things too
big for him falls. He calls It bad luck,
whereas It Is only bad management.
It Is better to be a good thinker than
a poor philosopher."
Mr. Oelrichs was devoted to all out
door sports, but was particularly fond
of swimming, says the N-ew York
Some . of 'the transatlantic skippers
used tosay jokingly that upon nearing
tne American coasi xney wouiu iook. lor
Hermann Oelrichs ' and would then
know that they could not be very far
from Jand. The skipper of one of his
own steamers, who once had gone two
or three, miles ont of his way to pick
up what he thought was a man strug
gling fos life in the water only to find
Hermann Oelrichs coolly passing the
time of day and refusing to be taken
aboard,' was. quoted as saying:
"Dot tani Hermann! I schtop no more
anudder timea for him."
Once, while in a boat off. the house
of a boating . club, he surprised his
companions by leaping into the water
and "swimming two miles against a
swift carrent, and when the boatmen
picked him up he was as fresh of wind
as at the start.
Hermann Oelrichs, with a party of
friends, among them being several well
known citizens, after a theater party
one Bight some time ,ago adjourned to
a well kaownBroadway restaurant In
New York to enjoy a repast of .Welsh
rarebits and the usual liquid concom
itant. After the Inevitable delay the
waiter brought the rarebits, and after
Mr. Oelrlchs tasted of - the steaming
saffron dish he turned to his com
panions and said:
"Gentlemen, I, for one, don't like this
rarebit, and, as I already know yon
have just as fastidious palates as my
self, I move that we pass them and
that y,ou allow me to make an Oelrichs
The party consented, the chafing dish
was brought, with it the cheese and
other necessary elements of the pop
ular dishy- and Mr. Qelrichs began his
culinary experiment It was a success,
so much so that Mr. Oelrlchs was en
cored and obliged to respond with an
other all round.
Mr. Oelrlchs had great confidence in
his own opinions. On one occasion
while speaking In public of swimming
In the tropics he made the assertion
that there were no man eating sharks
north of Cape natteras, says the New
York Sun. To back this up he offered
a reward of $500 to any man who
could cite an authentic case of a man
who had been bitten by a shark north
of that point- He, received thousands
of letters from persons who utterly
disregarded the geographical qualifica
tions demanded In the reward, but no
one ever .won the money.
