Central Park, X. Y.. contains 862
acres. 400 acres being in woodland,
wherein half a million trees have
been planted. There are nine miles
of roads, miles of walks and live
miles of bridle paths. The park was
begun in 157.
It is reported that Count Tolstoi
intends to visit the World's Fair and
will briny over with him a party of
young Russian nobles who are to in
vestigate American agricultural
methods and the systems of irrigation
in use in the west.
The-Aldine Sw indle.
It is doubtful if a more outrageous
swindle will attend the World's Fair
at Chicago, involving so many vic
tims and causing such widespread
indignation as that of which the pro
jectors of the Aldine installment ho
tel have teen guilty. The company
was incorporated last fall, ami was
to be operated upon somewhat of a
co-operative plan. Reductions in
rates were offered if the applicants
would advance a portion of the money
to become due for accommodations
for a specified time. These were to
be scaled according to the time of
occupancy and character- of service
required. The people who made the
advances are the ones on the anxious
seat. After having advanced money
on certificates entitled them to the
benefits of the alluring plan, they
received circulars announcing that
the company was bankrupt, unable
to proceed with the building, and
that the outstanding eertiiicates
would be accepted at ;' cents of their
value. This started an investiga
tion and the thousands of victims are
clamoring for their money. Indig
nation meetings have been or will bo
held and an effort to recover the
cash will be made.
A 12-age pamphlet was issued,
wish an elegant picture of the pros
pective hotel on the lirst page, a map
of Chicago on the last, and the inter
ior adorned with pictures of the of
fice, the parlor, dining-room, map of
the fair grounds and of the president
and general manager. On every
page were rose-colored descriptions
of the exhibition of Chicago, how to
come here, and the advantage to ap
plicants for rooms who, by sending
cash in advance, would be given
greatly reduced rates:

Thousands of these pamphlets were
sent all over the Union and in a short
time money began coming in with
applicants. Then material was pur
chased, work commenced on the
hotel, numerous contracts were made
by the president with solicitors, and
from $50 to fl00 cash was advanced
to each one. They started out to se

Abner Davison, of Davenport, on
of the victims writing home from
Chicago, tells of an interview he had
with Mr. Gano, of Chicago, the man
who now poses as president of the
Aldine Hotel company, under the
new regime. Mr. Davison's inter
view, from the tone of his letter, was
quite racy and interesting. Ho
writes that he remarked to Mr. Gano
that the whole affair looked to him
like a big swindle. Air. Gano replied
that without a doubt it was, on the
part of the Aldine Hotel company.
Mr. Davison assented to this, and in
timated in a direct manner that it al
so looked to him as though Mr. Gano
were a party to it. Mr. Gano de
murred to this, but Mr. Davison says
he told the gentleman that it would
be a hard matter for him to convince
a court or jury that he was not im
plicated. Mr. Davison adds that the Aldine
company was a complete swindle
from start to finish. The company,
he savs. never had a dollar, doing
business entirely on the money paid
to it for entertainment by these hun
dreds of people whom it has duped
and wronged in a manner that every
day shows more strongly to have

There is more catarrh in this sec

diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be in
curable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced it a local disease,
and prescribed local remedies, and
bv constantly failing to cure with lo
cal treatment, pronounced it incura

be a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires constitutional treat
