His Monument In New York and Why
It It There. (
"Everybody who lives in New York
knows or ought to know by this time |
where the Worth monument Is hut
bow many know what it's nil about," (
said u New Yorker to a group of
friends who were Standing In front of ,
the monument in Madison square.
"I should say," tie went on, "that i
more persons pass by hero every day
than by any other spot In Manhattan, ,
excepting Nassau and Frankfort
streets, yet I'll wager that most of you ,
do not know who Worth was."
"Pooh!" remarked the only non-New
Yorker In the group, who had just
come down from Albany and hadn't ,
been in Madison square but once he
fore in his life. "Worth was with ,
Pope In the Army of the Potomac and
was killed when he was with Sherman ,
In the march through Georgia."
"Oh. you're way off there, John," in- ,
terruptcd another. "I can see near the
base in big bronze letters: ,
"By the Corporation
City of New York,
Honor tlie Brav?." i

One of the onlookers has been a guest
of a nearby hotel for several years.

"That monument," ho said, "was

Worth, who won great fame with Scott
during our war with Mexico. Am I '
"Right you are," said the onlooker
who had started the talk, "but," he con
tinned, "why did the city of New York
take such a special interest In his mem
ory as to build that monument in his
"That's easy." was the reply of the 1
ancient guest of the nearby hotel. "It
was because Worth was born in this
city and the city was proud of him
as one of her distinguished sons."
About this time along strolled a tall
man who was apparently acquainted
with the onlookers and had heard the
last question and the answer. There 1
was n broad grin on his face. He was
a former Inspector of police.
He put lu a question or two, aud in
answering not one of the group could
tell whether Worth was killed in bat
tle or where lie was buried. But all 1
agreed that he was horn in New York
"Just come over to the monument
and take a look at the north side Blab 1
und get posted," said the ex Inspector.
And the group wont with him. This is 1
what they read on the slab, and they
all afterward acknowledged that then
and there they had read it for the first
time in their lives:
Uruior thin Monument
Lies tlie liodv of
WILLIAM JENKINS WORTH,
Horn In Hudson, N. Y.,
March 1, 1704.
Died In Texas
May 7, 1849.
The fact is that not one person In
ten thousand In crossing to or from
Fifth avenue to Broadway takes the
Twenty-fifth street crossing on the
monument side, and therefore few per
sons other than tourists ever stop to
road what is Oil the slab. It so hap
pens, too, that ihc sunlight seldom
touches that side of the monument.
Moreover, as the slab and bronze let
ters on It are very dark, pnssersby
seldom give it any notice.
"If out of a dozen New Yorkers who
have lived nearly all their lives within
a stone's throw of this monument only
one knew lhat Gcnctal Worth fought
in the Mexican war and none knew
that his body lies under the monument,
how few of the millions who pass hv

Hie Qentle Reproof.
The London newspapers used to
make ? distinction between a simple
notice of n denth, for whic h they charg
ed .r? shillings, und n brief obituary,
for which they demanded seven and
sixpence. Ono day Dr. Thomas Hume
called at the oflice of a morning Jour
nal and silently placed upon the coun
ter the announcement of the death of a
friend, together with 5 Shillings. The
clerk glanced at the papor, tossed it to
one side and said gruffly, "Seven and
six!" "i have frequently." answered
Hume, "had occasion to publish these
simple notices, and I have never before
been charged more than ,T shillings."
"Simple:" repented tho clerk without
looking up. "There's an added line,
'universally beloved and deeply regret
ted,' Isn't there? Seven and six."
Hume produced tho additional hnlf
crown and laid it deliberately by tho
others, observing in his most solemn
tone, "Congratulate yourself, sir, that
this is an expense which your execu
tors Will never be put to."
A certain gentleman who Is of a
Jov ial disposition is also very big and
stout, his weight being soincwhero in
IllO neighborhood of twenty stone. On
leaving n friend's house one evening
ho was just about to hlro a cab to take
him home when his host offered lilm
the loan of his carriage. The visitor
accordingly dismissed the cabman, ten
dering at the same time a shilling for
the uncommeneed journey. To his as
tonishment, cabby asked for another
"What do you mean?" demanded ttio
gentleman angrily. "The fare would
only have been a shilling If I had
actually gone all tho way."
"That's right enough," cabby replied,
with an ingratiating smile, "hut just
think o' the fright nio an' the 'orso 'ad
