In 1837 or 1838 Mr. Williamson, who was
satisfied with the fortune be had accumulated,
retired. Be was then worth $000,000 and
was 85 years old, and the richest young mer
chant in Philadelphia who had made his
money by his own exertions. In those days
he was a social linn. I ie had a wide circle of
acquaintances and had the entree into the
elect society of the town. He attended the
assemblies, fashionable balls and theatres,
and was quite a beau. He spent money liber
oily upon his dress and was not inclined to be
charitable at that time. He txk a notion
that ha would like to see the world and took
passage on a packet ship for England. He
remained abroad for two years, and visited
the principal countries of Europe, including
Russia. He returned to Philadelphia, in
tending to remain about six mont hs and then
go abroad again, but he got interested in
tome investments. He began to speculate in
coal lands in Pennsylvania and in other solid
securities and was very successful.
ClXtBACY AND BOIJTCDK.
In less than ten years after his i urn from
Europe, the then farmer's boy of Bucks
county was one of the four millionaires in
Philadelphia. Ha became engrossed in money
making eutlrely, and withdrew gradually
from the social pleasures w hich had formerly
been his delight. The dead millionaire, whose
fortune is estimated at from $12,000,000 to
$15,000,000, never married. For many years
be seldom visited his relatives. After he had
made a miflion hkiife lieau to change and
be bad no time Tor anything except money
making. The days and nights were not long
enougn ror him. Air. Williamson began to
be careless of his dress, and his bead became
white with age and care, and he developed
uw a character ana became verv penurious.
Whether thore was ever a love affair in his
life is not known. Until he was 40 years of
age be sought the society of women in a so
cial way. In his younger years dauciug was
a great nobby with him. lie was oue of the
best dancers that ever appeared ut Saratoga,
where be went every summer for several
years. He frequently led the grand march
at the bops at tbo fashionable hotels. Ho
learned dancing from the liest masters of
Philadelphia, Before the change came in his
ure ne was never known to lose his temper.
He was always affable, obliging and polite,
uma oi a goou story, a gooi laugb and a
good dinner. He never kept house, although
he was one of t he most extensive owners of
Ity dwellings in the tax list Ha passed his
Ufa In boarding houses and hotels until be
was assailed with feebleness, wheu he went
to board with his niece, Mrs. Ihnckln.
or many years he walked wherever he
went to save car fare and hack hire. While
be was giving largely to charity he was prac
ticing an economy that in most men would
nave been said to have amroached meannesa.
It is related of him that a few years ago he
bad a room in an upper story of a bouse on
Chestnut street, above Nineteenth. He dis
covered that others were laying less money
for atmilor privileges. He said nothing, but
be packed bis trunk and, like Longfellow's
Arab, stole silently away. He afterward in
dulged in the luxury of summer boarding at
Bryn Mawr. A coach plied between the
railroad station and the hotel Mr. William-
aw umbo n lor a weeic. men a bill was pre
sented to him for coach fare at the rate of
ton cents a ride. The old man glanced at the
bill in mild surprise. He iwid it without a
word of expostulation. The next day the
driver of the coach bowed otsoquously and
nung open nis door as soon as the bent form
at bis millionaire customer alighted from the
train. It was raining at the time. Mr.
Williamson raised his blue cotton umbrella,
from which be was never separated, and
without even a glance of recognition at the
astonished coachman, trudged on up the
muddy road to the hotel
HIS CORNS AM HIS BARBER.
In the memory of the oldest inhabitant Mr.
Williamson never appeared in a new suit of
clothes. Generations of bankers on Third
street were accustomed to see a little, thin,
bent, shabbily dressed figure making its way
painfully along the financial thoroughfare
wun eyes seeking th9 ground and bands be
hind the back clutching the blue cotton um
brella. A second class tailor, who had a shop on
one of the alleys bisecting Third street, re
paired and cleaned Mr. Williamson's suit of
clothes. With him the director of a dozen
powerful institutions and the possessor of mil
lions of securities would haggle for a quarter
of an hour over the charge of repairing a coat
In his later years Mr. Williamson suffered
so much from corns that he found himself
compelled either to give up pedal locomotion
or to submit to an operation at the hanis of
a chiropodist. On the recommendation of
the officers of the Glrard !ank Jre called on
ChiropodisU2flUW.tr i-rr--r.-i m
Chestnut street, and submitted to the excis
ion, v. bfn Ooldberg presented his bill Mr.
w uuamfcm paid it willingly and remarked:
-lou are the only man who ever cave me
worth or my money.
Mr. Williamson never missed a dav at his
omca, which was for many years located at
80 Bank street. He went there rain or shine,
in summer and winter. Early in last year,
when his infirmities began to tell upon him,
be was reluctantly compelled to provide him
self with a horse and cuiTinge and a coach
man. He bought a plain one horse carriage
and a very tame horse, and surprised bis ac
quaintances by planing upon the panelsof the
carriage, "L V. Williamson, private."
For years and years he was shaved in
Blank's barber shop, on Elbow lime. Barber
Blank, in speaking of his millionaire cus
tomer, said :
"He was generally the last customer of the
' day to come in, and no matter how hot the
day might be be would insist upon having ull
the doors and windows shut tight. I believe
be would have even stopped up the key holo,
so great was his dislike and fear of a draught
While being shaved Mr. Williamson never
talked, nor did ho encourage it in his barber.
He was never guilty during the eight years
that be patronized my shop of a hair cut
His niece, he told me, always cut bis hair. I
was always sure of my ten cents for my
nave, but no more. And he never remem
bered me at Christmas, but I suppose ho never
thought of it One evening uixmt 7 o'clock
be came into the shop and was more feeble
than usual I had to hang bis rout and vest
up for him. As 1 placed the vest on the peg
I saw a fiat wad of greenliacks sticking out of
the upper pocket, and there sturing me in the
face was a thousand dollar bilL He must
have bad a very large sum of money on him
that day. When he left and went bito Elbow
lane it was pitch dork, and I thought how
easy it would have been for even a boy to
bave robbed him then." Philadelphia Times.

A Xewnpaper'ss Defiance-.
The Dubuque Daily Timet has been
sued for $10,000 for libel, but from the
following way it comments upon the pro
ceedings, it don't seem to be veiy badly
Yesterday service wus accepted on be
half of this paper in a suit for $ 10.000
damages alleged to have been ctused to
the "reputation" and "business" of Lnd
lord Remington of the Barrett house by
an article published last Saturday in the
It would naturally be considered a
somewhat difficult thing to slander the
devil or to say anything libelous in re
gard to the infernal regions. Just what
Mr. Remington Hods to object to in an
article which simply charges his house
with being a resort for disreputable and
degraded women, it is hard to see. No
one will doubt the truth of the state
ment. But undoubtedly he dislikes to
hear disagreeable truths. However, if
he expects to stop the mouth of honest
criticism by making a f 10.000 bluff, he
will find that he is plsying in a game
without a limit. The Timet has node
sire to cloy its columns with any further
account of Mr. Remington or the disrep
utable females who patronize bis resort.
But if, Mr. Remington, you continue
to make your place a menace to public
morals and a disgrace to the good name
of the city, the Timet will not hesitate to
state the facta in as plain and vigorous
English as it can command. Either, sir.
you must reform or get out of the town.
There is not room here, at the same time,
for a disreputable house like yours, and
a fearless newspaper.
It would be a much better policy for
you, Mr. Remington, to grin and Bar
rett. By bringing a libel suit you have
made yourself the laughing stock of the

By dyspepsia is scarcely worth the liv

puzzling nervous symptoms, increased
action of tbe heart after eating, sinking
in the abdomen between meals, and
flatulence after, are among the scccessive
indicia of tins harrassing complaint. Two
things only are needful for its removal.
A resort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
and persisU nee in its use. These reme
dial measures being adopted, a cure is
certain. Tiken immediately before or
after meals, this great stomachic' pro
motes secretion of the gastric juice, the
natural solvent of the food. The nervous
and bilious symptoms consequent upon
chronic indigestion disappear, as the
complaint i;radually yields to the cor
rective and invigorating influence of the
Bitters. Appetite returns, sleep becomes
more ref resiling, and as a consequence,
the body is efficiently nourished, muscu
lar power ir creases, and the mind grows
sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and
fever, and rieumatism.

Hood's Sarsaparilla Is prepared from Sarsa
parilla, Dandelion, Mandrake, Dock, Juniper
Berries, and other well known vegetable
remedies, by a combination, proportion and
process peculiar to itself, and by which the
full medicinal value of all the Ingredients
used Is secured, nence It possesses superior
and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made It a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, because I know it purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, called
'spring fever,' will never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never
failing remedy." W. n. Lawrence, Editor
