The Charming; Scenery In the Neighbor
hood of Stockton Joseph T. Goodman at
Sandy Baldwin's Funeral How Mr.
Whisk TerBdy Was 1'unUhed.
Copyright, 1800, by Edpnr W. Nye.
I have before me, at this moment, a
letter and circulars from, Mr. Charles
Rich Johnson, making queer proposals to
me regarding a forthcoming work of
his. It is a biography of the Millionaire
Men and Women, Dead and Living, of
America. It will cost 40,000 to issue
the book, but as every millionaire will
naturally want a few, and as they will
cost $50 per set, there can be no risk in
printing it. Besides, the subscribers are
all financially sound. The letter goes on
to state that I am on the list and asks
my cordial co-operation.
;I will be willing to co-operate if it
should le the sense of the other million
aires that this step is advisable. I have
always said, and say now, that it is high
time we millionaires should organise and
stand by each other. This is the first
stop. Lot us know who really belong to
our set and then form a society with
signs, passwords and signals which will
protect our lodge against outsiders. A
Bign of distress would also be almost in
dispensable. I think there is nothing
sadder than to see a millionaire suffering
for the comforts of life when there are
other millionaires who might help him
if they knew about it.
Millionaires, as a rule, are kind and
thoughtful toward each other, but they
lack organization. Think what we could
do if we would unite! AVe are really the
bone and sinew of the country. "We are
the producers, as I may say. Farmers
and such people are consumers. They
eat up what we earn. Why do we get
up early and work till late all through
the frosty days, watering our stock and
shearing our lambs? Is it not that the
farmer may have bread for eating pur
poses and clothes to warm his body?
VIEW NEAR STOCKTON'.
Then why allow all other trades and
societies to organize while we look at
each other askance? We need a lodge of
millionaires in every town. It is for that
reason 1 hail with ill disguised joy the
advent of tins look, and as soon as I can
possibly raise the monev will subscribe
Fresno is one of the handsome cities of
the Sacramento valley. One ridi-s for
many miles along the broad, level sweep
of green, with never a break, save where
the purple orchard scents the air, and
then again miles of green, trimmed with
millions of wild flowers, such as Cali
fornia ah ne can furnish by the township
in unending yet blending colors.
me way to t resno one also discovers
a product of the Golden State which he
had not heard about before. It is the
wind mill. All along down from Sacra
mento you discover this rank growth.
About Stockton the wind mill grows to a
great height, and even in the most barren
soil. Some have a bright red blossom,
whilst others are variegated, and still
others are red, white ami blue. A field
of large, double wind mills in full bloom
is a fine sight. I do not know what they
are used for unless it be for purposes of
irrigation. Now, however, after the in
tense rains of the winter, it seems almost
a mockery for this great army of unem
ployed wind mills to stand around with
the water up to its knees and its idle
hands in its pockets.
Fresno is in the heart of a leautiful
grape growing country, but these grapes
are not used to promote the interests of
the flowing bowl. The vine growers
here are all engaged in the raisin' of
raisins. Among tiie horny handed but
wealthy toilers here I found Joseph T.
Goodman. When the angels were en
gaged in naming that rare and radiant
maiden whom the neighbors called Le
nore, they christened Joseph T. Goodman
with the name he has so honorably borne
for over half a century.
Seeing the evils arising from the culti
vation of the grape as a wine producer,
yet fully alive to the great advantages to
be derived from grape growing gener
ally as a source of food supply, he gave
his attention to the cultivation and prop
agation of the raistii. Selecting the
large, fat, early dwarf, maroon pie rai
sin of commerce, and crossing it with
the citron, he soon obtained a hybrid
raisin, with seeds in it, which could be
hardly distinguished from the royal oc
tavo raisin of Spain. He now produces
tons of this beautiful fruit each year at
an enormous profit, and each night as he
retires he can place his hand on his heart
and say: "At least I have never aided in
the great and growing but reprehensible
industry of tilling drunkards' graves."
an. uoouman nas a History, lie ran
The Territorial Enterprise in those early
aays wnen sucn young struggle as
Daniel De Quille, the bright young
Frenchman, and Samuel L. Clemens, the
talented Missourian, worked for him.
He was one of the features of those won
derful days on the Comstock which can
never come again.
It was my good fortune to see a con
siderable of him. Not so much as we see
of our lady friends in society when in
full dress, perhaps, but still I saw him in
his working clothes and in his every day
In San Francisco they told me about
his attendance at the obsequies of Sandy
Baldwin. Baldwin and Goodman were
fast friends, and when Sandy died Mr.
Goodman was asked to act as chief pall
bearer. He came down from the mines
for that purpose, and had to borrow some
clothes of John McCullough. They were
very good clothes, but not long enough in
the sleeves or the legs for Joseph T. Good
man. The Prince Albert coat was plenty
long enough in the skirts, but revealed a
sweep of forearm and flannel shirtsleeve
which came very near giving a tinge of
sadness to the funeral. His trousers also
were of the hydrophobia variety, and in
order to make friends with the tops of
his boots they had sacrificed the valued
friendship that had existed between
themselves and the waistcoat, as it were.
In the midst of all this the master of
ceremonies suddenly decided that Mr.
Baldwin's pall bearers ought properly to
consist of judges and political dignitaries
of the states rather than of his old and
tried friend.;, who might be barren of
titles. This was contrary to the Bald ,
win style, however, and highly offensive
to his" friends, especially "Mr. "Goodman,
who had eaten and slept with Sandy for
many moons, and had even taken him
out shooting on Saturdays, when col
lectors were in the habit of breaking in
on Baldwin's tranquillity of spirit.
So Joseph T. Goodman arose from his
Beat down stairs when the master of cere
monies said that the procession was now
ready to move, and be invaded the room
where the casket stood, Burrounded by its
haughty .double rank of titled pall bearers.
In all the grandeur of John McCullough's
clothes, with his arms extending grandly
beyond the sleeves of the great trage
dian's coat, his legs wandering away be
low the meager longitude of trousers,
and his glimmering head protruding
nobly above his erstwhile hair, he came
with gleaming eye among them, and,
ranging himself fearlessly by the coffin
of his friend, he wilted the weeping com
pany with the grandeur of his own grief
"Gentlemen," said he, "I am here to
act as the pall bearer of Sandy Baldwin.
I shall do it, and those of you who know
me know that I will do Is. He cared lit
tle for the empty titles which the errors
of humanity bestow upon unworthy men.
He knew his friend9 while living. He
knows them still. I was his friend. I
am nothing more than that now. If he
were he would indorse that sentiment."
At that moment Mr. Goodman stooped
and, taking hold of the casket, he gently
jolted it to test its weight. After he had
hefted it he said:
"Now gentlemen," and he looked like
a Numidian liou whose tail had been shut
into the door of the Coliseum by mistake,
or a Royal Bengal tiger, whose own pri
vate martyr had been ruthlessly jerked
away from him by means of a string;
"pride, pomp and circumstance can no
longer reach Sandy Baldwin in that
mysterious country to which" he has
gone. Empty titles and the false gla
mour and glitter of hollow honors cannot
gladden his dead heart now. Your hon
orable this and your judge that cannot
bring the Hash of pride to his pallid clay.
"ltut friendly hands shall be the last
to touch his bier. No stranger shall bear
my friend away to his grave, for, by ,
I will carry him myself."
Then he reached down and put his
strong arms about the casket of Sandy
Baldwin to shoulder it. But letter judg
ment moved the man who had charge of
the services and the original programme
was carried out.
Lawrence Barrett said it was at once
the grandest and the most ludicrous
sii;ht he ever saw. There in the midst
of mourning, on the most solemn and
impressive of occasions, stood a brave
ami detiant man, in a Prince Alliert coat
that tried to be dignified but lacked the
necessary scope, and with trousers which
shuddered at the idea of touching the
earth by a foot or so. With flashing eye
and distended nostril he defied the entire
programme, and threatening to bear
away the Ixtdy of his friend, like a true
gladiator, he won his case, and Sandy
Baldwin went to his grave surrounded
by a little band of plain American cit
izens, followed by the titled but over
awed pall bearers, whose names were re
spectively Messrs. Mud, Dennis and
It was beautiful.
Had I been Sandy Italdw in at that mo
ment, I should have made a superhuman
effort to make a few desultory remarks
at the grave.
Fresno is also noted latterly for hav
ing among its citizens a gentleman named
Whisk, who has done well for a number
of years by attaching the baggage of
various theatrical companies. 1 do not
mention this localise I have any personal
grudge against Mr. Whisk, for I am not
a theatrical company, nyether did he at-
ih rM mm

tach my baggage. On the contrary, he
bought a box and treated me well, but
others murmur, and, I believe, with just
cause, insomuch that the citizens of
Fresno kick with a loud and sonorous
kick, which extendeth even unto San
Francisco and even also unto the sound
which is to the north thereof.
Mr. Whisk married in rather a roman
tic way, I thought. A Fresno gentleman
told me alrotit it. He said that Mr.
Whisk was doing well in his attachment
industry there, and finally formed an
other attachment for a very wealthy
widow. She feared, however, that he
loved her only as a brother, and also as
one who hath his eye on the bank ac
count wherewith she had been blest.
Sj she said to him: "Oh, darling, I
fear that my wealth hath taught thee to
love me, and if it were to take wings
unto itself thou wouldst also do the same."
"Nay, Gwendolin," aaid Mr. Whisk,
softly, as he drew her head down upon
his shoulder and tickled the lobe of her
little, cunning ear with the end of his
mustache, "I love not thy dollars, but
thee alone. Also elsewhere. If thou
doubtest me, give thy wealth to the poor.
Give it to the World's fair. Give it to
the Central Pacific railroad.
Give it to
uny one who is suffering.'
SHE FLEW TO HIS ARMS.
"No," she unto him straightway did
make answer; "I could not do that,
"Then give it to yoqr daughter," said
Mr. Whisk, "if you think I am so low as
to love alone your yellow dross."
He then drew himself up to his full
She flew to his arms like a frightened
dove that has been hit on the head with
a rock, folding her warm round arms
about his neck, she sobbed with joy and
gave her entire fortune to her daughter.
Mr. Whisk then married the daughter
and went on about bis business.
I I .. .-
I sometisae think that, at the be3t,
man is a great coarse thing. -
The widow wept for Mr. Whisk for a
week or two and bought a revolver with
which to kill him, but better judgment
prevailed. She suddenly cane to her
senses, and, realizing what a weak re
venge it was, after all, mervly to kill
him, she packed up her parrot, and went
to live at his house.
Verily, she laughs best who laughs

At the Theatre.
Cleveland's consolidated minstrels
give a satisfactory en ertainment
to a large audience at Harper's theatre
last Dight. The fir.-t part wis new and
elaborate, about $20,000 w rth of rich
hangings and gorgeous Venetian cobs
tumes being displayed. The jokes and
songs were newand enjoyable. ITughey
Daugherty was inimitably funny; Billy
Emerson sang as be alone can, and the
Egytian phalanx displayed a strips of mil
itary manoeuvers revealing novel pre
cision in the war implements of the past
century, but there was not enough of it
There were other features which served
their purpose, and the concluding feats
of the imperial Japanese troupe were the
most remarkable and daring that have
been seen here before, the bamboo lid
der act being particularly thrilling.

Her many and prolonged engtigements in

Chicago, New ork and Detroit have
risen to tue rank of undisputed triumphs
and ovations never yet tqunled in the
annals of the profession. During her re
cent remarkably successful engagement
at the Grand opera house in New York
the conservative Tribune said
In her portrayal of charactt r she trans
lates the audience from real ty to the
ideal. One docs not seem to see the
character as a piece of acting but to see
the character itself. Her acting is an in
spiration a revelation. She moulds her
characters as a potter would a vessel of
clay. Sue seems to hold the character in
her hands and so fully to dominate it, so
completely to permeate it. t tat it be
comes an inspired creation, lo all the
conflicting emotions of a part she is true
to a lofty ideal. She does not convey the
sense of deep passion by incoherent gusts
of words; but rather by a curlied volcano
of feeling which permeates i through
and through, bdi! by some subtle maguet
ism is imparted in tingling sensations to
those who see and hear her. She dis
plays a sublimity of dramatic power such
as is rarely seen on any stage completely
anu entirely tilling and embodying all the
roles she assumes. She is indeed the
greatest living actress of the age.
