Mrs. W. Seward Webb 12,000.000
Mrs. William H. Vandorbilt has no for
tune in her own name, contrary to the gen
eral belief. She has an annuity of $300,000.
When William H. Vandorbilt died he left
a fortune, in round numbers, of $200,000,000.
It is remarkable how it has Increased In the
three years that have elapsed since his death.
Old Commodore Vanderbilt left his grandson
Cornelius $5,000,000, and his other throe
grandsons $2,000,000 each. William K. oper
ated extensively in the stock market five
years ago, anil, it was generally understood
at the time, lost his entire fortune, which he
hud increased to $5,000,000. He was reported
to have received an allowance of $70,000 a
year from his fathor for his personal expenses
thereafter and until the death of the latter.
About the time of or shortly boforo the ter
mination of William K.'s disastrous expe
rience in Wall street, Cornelius began specu
lating, and was reported to have lost about
$H,uOO,OOOof his fortune, which had, however,
growu to $3,000,000. Tho fortunes of Fred
erick and Ueorgo Vandorbilt had also appre
ciated ui value, though not to the same extent
as tlw others. Frederick had been very suc
cessful in stock speculations and George had
niado highly remunerative investments under
the direction of his father. Altogether, there
was iu the family, outsido of William H.
Vandorbilt's personal fortune, $12,000,000.
Deducting that amount, the wealth of Will

adaptation is going on.
A Pennsylvania newspaper lately reported
a very clever piece of work by a pair of those
