iJ1!6! th Unitd States about
100 chfldriwho,Tipon arriving at the
W of matttrity, will come iatott ,
sessioTi of very large fortunes. They will
each have many minions of dollars. In
fact oneixi h of the wealth of the United
States is supposed to be in the hands of
-0 millionaire families, and each child of
each family will some day own the mil
lions that bave been accumnlated for it
oyjr8 Paret ts and grandparents.
The parei.te of the children who will
some day ovn one-sixth of all the wealth
in this country are very careful about
the training and the education of these
fortunate youngsters. They are bring
ing them u3as carefully as ever the chil
dren of the royal families of England and
Germany were brought up. Their teach
ers are sel :cted from the best in the
world, and they are taught, disciplined
and drilled in a wonderful way a way
that many children would consider very
hard, strict and tiresome.
These m.llionaire children must be
well trainf d, because they wil control
many of tl e railroads of America, tele
graph companies, and gold, silver and
oil mines, besides iron interests and other
As a rule they travel a great deal, and

Take thf- Vanderbilt children for ex
ample, Tl ey are constantly on the go.
In the summer they are at Newport.
Later they visit Lenox. Then they go to
Europe in a private steam yacht and re
turn just in time to spend Christmas at
home. Fnm February untilJune they
travel throagh the west in a private car.
Bui duri lg all these trips their studies
are uninterrupted. A corps of teachers,
governess uid private tutors accompany
them everywhere. Their studies are no
more disturbed by a departure for Mexi
co than a i nblic school child's studies are
disturbed by a hailstorm.
Some time ago Mr. Seward Webb and
his wife at d children journeyed to the
World's fidr in a special train. They
stopped to visit Mexico, Texas and Cali
fornia firet. During all this long trip
the Webb children and some little cous
ins who accompanied them went on
with their studies as usual. There was
a special cir just for that purpose. The
car was called the '-Idler," and it was
gorgeously hung with bine tapestries and
fine pictures. It had a blue carpet and
blue chairs, and ull its furnishings sug
gested a daintily appointed schoolroom
rather thai a railroad car.
While oi such trips the children are
taught gee graphy from observation, and
it is easy to Bee that they get a fine
knowledge of the country which they
will some day control to a great extent.
When the W. K. Vanderbilt children
are at home they are taught in a school
room'whit h is beautifully decorated with
Mother Croose melodies and nursery
rhymes. There are also simple- quota
tions fron Shakespeare for the older
children. Nothing is spared to make
the book education complete.
In their daily lives, their goings and
their comings and their play, nearly all
of the little American aristocrats are
brought tip alike. And that is with ex
treme simplicity. They dress with one
half the a egance of other children, and
they eat I lainer food. Such children as
these wear no jewelry at all. They do
net know what it is to have gold rings,
bangle bracelets and necklaces. Nor do
they carry watches.
Mrs. Pa ran Stevens, who is a very rich
woman, sirs that her daughter, who is
f now the wealthy Mrs. Arthur Paget of
London and ew York, went wild with
delight over a eimple little ring given to
her when she was 18. It was her very
first bit of jewelry.
Mrs. Whitney, the wife of ex-Secretary
WhitnT. nsed to make it a point to
take her lanch at the children's dinner
hour, and it was then that she took oc
casion to teach her little ones by precept
and example the little elegances ot man
ner which mark thewel bred person.
Mrs. Flagler, the wife of the rich Stand
ard Oil man, goes farther and often
lunches vith her children in their school
room and devotes many hours to person
But of course the daily life of rich
children is not all discipline. Though
they do not have candy and jewelry and
rich cloties and rich food, they have
luxuries which other children do not
have. They own beautiful horses and
fine dogs, all of the best breeds. A mil
lionaire I oy has his saddle horse and of
ten his tandem team when at his coun
try home, and some of these boys have a
four in Land. When one of these boys
wants a new horse, he buys one or se
lects one from his father's 6tables. Ee
has a kernel of dogs, besides rare birds
and other pets. And if he want to own
a collecti jn of stamps or stones or but
terflies or any other one thing, his father
gives hit a money to buy the best that
can be bought.
When young W llliam Aetor Chanler,
who is now exploring the heart of Afri
ca, was e pending his Bummers at Lake
George not many years ago, he was
seized with a fancy for owning boats of
all kind j. He wanted canoes, duck
boats, yachts and launches.
And ho got them all. But the chil
dren of "he neighborhood used to say
that 'pt or Willie Chanler" was never
allowed to buy soda water or candy.
One day the temptation to buy candy
became too strong for the boy million
aire, and he marched boldly into a candy
store with a company of Lake George
boys at Ub heels.
Give me 25 cents' worth of candy,
aid he, "and charge it to William A."

Story of Their Use aa Belated by the liig
Hairy Man From the Prairies.
"The way you Chicago people look at
things reminds me of my old friend.
Colonel John Phillips."
The speaker was a large, hairy man,
with a big slouch hat and a voico evi
dently better adapted to the acoustic
properties of the prairie than the smok
ing room. He appeared to realize this
as he glanced around and saw every man
in the room looking toward him, some
smiling, some scowling.
"Tell us about your friend, the colo
nel," suggested a real estate agent who
had the hairy giant on the string for a
big cash trade.
"Why," continued the big man with
the prairie voice, "Phillips saw every
thing that belonged to him big and ev
erything belonging to me small"
"That's human nature " the agent
was suggesting, but the prairie man in
"No, 'twant no human nature. 'Twas
spectacles'. He got 'em made in this
town. I believe you people all wear 'em
"What peculiar properties did your
friend's spectacles possess?" asked a cu
"Just as I've said. They made his
property loom up in regular Chicago
World's fair fashion, but squashed other
people's stuff worse'n a Zimri Dwiggins
"How could he do this?"
"Why, the blamed lenses worked on
an axis and showed things telescope fash
ion, you know. S'pose there was a horse
trade up; he'd let you look at your own
horse through the ordinary little end of
his glasses, but when you came to look
at his he'd get at his specks again under
some pretext just flipping 'em over the
magnifying way and you'd see a mag
nificent animal. It was the same way
with houses, tracts of land, wheatfields,
changing money anything. Once you
looked through his glasses at anything,
you were his victim, for you felt as if
you couldn't live until you'd traded just
as Phillips wanted you to. But he met
his reward. He tried a bluff game on
big Buffalo Jones of Arizona, to whom
he had by that spectacled jugglery sold
100 jackass rabbits for burrows, ard
looked at big Jones' six gun through the
little end of his glasses, trying to put
him down email, you know. But, alas,
it didn't work!"
"What happened?" asked the agent.
"Big Jones' gun went off repeatedly
just s Colonel Phillips was adjusting
his grosses. It was as well perhaps,"
continued tho prairio man, dropping his
voice so low that the bellowing of tugs
in the river and lake could again be
heard, "for my friend had acquired
such a habit of trying to talk up to t he
magnifying side of these glasses that his
long enjoyed reputation for veracity
was entirely spoiled. We buried him at
Big Jones' expense, and to prevent a re
currence of such a tragedy I took pos
session of the spectacles, and"
"Whatever became of them?" asked a
hungry looking man who had gone broke
on a World s fair hotel scheme.
"I now wear 'em myself," said the
big, hairy prairie man. Chicago Tril
une. This Frog; Wulnavil u Ton.
The labyrinthodon, a hut'e creature re
sembling a toad or a frog, and which
lived in the earlier periods of our planet's
history, has been found in a surprising
state of preservation in the marl beds of
Huezelweitz, Hungary. All species of
this gigantic frog are now extinct and
are known to the naturalists only through
the investigations of the geologists, who
have often found parts or entire fossils
of the monster in strata of the triaasic
portion of the mesozoic period. South
wick mentions it in a three line entry in
his "Quizzism and Key," under the head
"A Frog as Large as an Ox," and in
Bamett'a "Geological Epochs" tt is con
sidered in a chapter on "Huge Froglike
Creatures of the Mesozoic Age."
The Bpecimen unearthed in the Hun
garian marl bed is entire with the excep
tion of the left forearm and the lower
jaw. The skull measures 18 inches be
tween the eye sockets and weighs, ex
clusive of the missing underjaw, 812
pounds. The bones which have been dis
covered up to date (and there is still
hopes of finding the missing parts), with
the adhering matrix, weigh 1,800 pounds,
almost a ton. St. Louis Republic.
The Jury Suited the Lawyer.
A Chicago attorney, somewhat noted
for his sharp practice, sent his client one
day to watch the case. Word came to
him that his case was next on the docket,
and he hurried over to find the opposing
counsel already beginning. In vain he
looked for his client. He was nowhere
to be seen. In vain he asked for dela,
but the court told him that the careless
ness of a client would not allow such a
thing. At last he glanced into the jury
box and saw his client there.
The stupid man had thought he heard
his name called and had marched in
with the rest. The opposing counsel was
so anxious to hurry the case along that
he neglected to examine the jury. See
ing the thing was in his own hands, the
Chicago attorney turned to the court
"I withdraw all objection," he said. "I
have my client where I want him."
No Uogus Italian Counts.
American heiresses need have little
fear of bogus Italian counts for the same
reason that there is no imitation Italian
wine the real article is too cheap. The
possession of a title in Palermo gives
nothing great of itself, but its indispen
sable accompaniment is a carriage, horses
and driver in livery. To maintain these
on an income of next to nothing a year
it is often necessary to eat macaroni
and thick soup for a regular diet, do a
great part of one's housework in gloomy,
faded apartments and sit about in old
clothes all day long to await the magic
hour of 8 p. m. Then mother and daugh

M'trning Words From a Woman.
Mrs. Jane G. Austin, who has been

would women havo lost todr heads and

When political selfishness and greed

of our community to rise up end come

that women, if they choc so to assert
themselves, can do anything they see fit
to do, from knitting off tao heads of
kings and queens to preventing cruelty

The move cf tho New York Academy
of Medicine for the establishment of a
national bureau of health is a matter of
more than ordinary interest and impor
tance. Th view taken by this representative
medical body of tho metropolis is that
the public health is a national affair, to
be dealt with by the nation rather than
the several states, and a matter which
calls for the services of physicians rather
This view has been embodied in a bill
which takes quarantine entirely out of
state control and politics and vests it in
a federal administrative board of medic
al men. The bill is to be presented to
congress when it next meets, nnd its
enactment will be urged, not only by the
academy of this city, but also by co-operating
medical societies throughout the
Menaced as the nation may be at any
time by cholera or some other epidemic,
it would seem to be but the part of com
mon prudence to have the most efficient
. and effective quarantine system that can
be devised. It cannot be claimed with
any force that wo have such a system
.now. The law passed last winter was a
compromise. The quarantine established
by it is a hybrid affair. New York Her
