Curtis in Chicago Record-Hlerald.] tGing up Riverside drive in New York the other day, a friend pointed out what is usually called a "palatial" residence at the corner of Seventy-ninth street, and re marked : "I wish you could see the inside of that hoase. It is fitted up in the most extraor dinary manner. In the basement as a bil liard and smoking room finished exactly like the smoking room on the steamer Kaiser Wilhelm der t;rosse. The dining roomt is an exact imitation of one of the Iapartments in a famoustt London restaur ant. ''here is a bedroom in which the arrangements and the decorations of the chamber of the Empress Josephine at u:ontainbhau are reprodeed in the great est dktail, and other rooms in the house have Jaeen copied at great expense from fam.ousn apartments in the palaces of EI'.ope or those which have attracted the fancy of the owner in hotels, museums, rsstaurants and private houses that he has visited. ".\ii even greater novelty, however." c',mtillned nmy friend. "is an extraordinary collectiion of toys, perhaps the most costly saIl remarkable in the world. No museum has, anything to compare with them. The ow..llnr caires very little for .other orna lniti. :and every tible, mantel, shelf and :cabinct in the house is filled with nov rltiier and mechanical toys that are worth foCtcttncsc : hundreds of the most curious and exlpensive ever made. 'The last toy he brrght home from E'urope was a wire cage of gilded silver containing a goldenI lird a-tort the size of a canary, in which is contealed a mntsic box. When it is woueand up by a key it will give an imita tionl of a ranary singing so perfect that no one wouhl ever sutspect that the bird was not alive. This novelty colst the owner several thoitusaitl dollars." "W\ho is ie?'" I askedl. "1i*I i:nalnl is Edgar Ilhnman. a Jewish ammillionaire. who for Inaly years peddled toys on Fourteentlt street. Twenty-third street and aMloig tlroadway arnd Sixth aemnue and other parts of the shopping district. Fifrta~ei cars ago he was a famiiliiar figulre to the sh.oppers of New York City. lie wandered up and down the street with a tray filled with toys hangitng by at lecather strap around lhis neck, anld onil his arm was a basket filled with surpllis stock. lie now practically controls ti'e toy trade in New York City, and is also largely interested in the fur businesg. ' anlt call inlfer fronm the size anll style of his lhoiusl that lie is nlot compelled to peddle liany lonlger. "A.nd what is the story?" "lehmnana is now aloult i6o years old. lie was born in the London ghetto, was brolught to the United States by his par ellts when a child, and raised in the I lelrew quall;rter of Newark. When he was about i years olaf and a schoolboy in that city-for every Jewish boy must go to, sclhooal until he is 14. no matter how poor his parents are-l.ehman dis covered in some way that the tobacco imanufacturers of that town would pay good money for tithe little square sheets of tinl foil in which they wrappled plug tobacco, and whlich are always thrown away bly the buyers. With this knowledge that little Jewish boy organized a syndi cate of other boys in Newark, which afterward extended to New York and Jersey City. for the purpose of gathering the wrappings of tiat foil which were cast away Iy people who chewed tobacco. The boys entered into arrangemenlts with hotel porters. janitors of buildinlgs. women who sweep o)ut ofice., clerks in grocery stores and the slopmelne of saloons to save the stuIT for themt, anld they brought it to the l.ehlnat rchihl. who disposed of it secretly to the tobacco mlanufacturers for about twice the price he paid the other baoys for it. "This was the heginning of a remark able husiness career. In the meantime he peddled hot, collee and sandwiches to the skaters in the Passaic river at New ark in the winter, and lemonade, ice cream and cake to boating parties in the summer. I1e acjluir-d two or three new,lpaplwr routes and engaged in other little enterprises, all of which were profitable. until wheni he was IS or z6 years old he had several hundred dol lars in the hank and was loaning money to grown men in the Newark ghetto at high rates of interest. "Onle day when he was not yet 16 he was passing a store in New York where a stock of toys which had been damaged at a; fire were being sold at auction for the henefit of the insurance company. Young Lehman's business kastincts recog nizedl an opportunity for speculation, and he purchased nearly all the stock for a trilling amount of money, perhaps I or a per cent of its actual value. He paid cash from his deposit in the savings hank and had the goods shipped to a store house in Newark, where he opened the eases from time to time and instructed his mother and sisters, and his father who was a peddler by trade, how' to re pair thois' that were broken and restore those that had been damaged by water. In the meantime lie sent his father out ill one direction, while he went in another to peddle the toys to the public. He also employed other Jewish boys and men as agents. Giving each a tray full of. toys lie would station them in the neigh horhood of schoolhouses and parks where children caine to play. When the trade of Newark was exhausted he invaded Jer sey City, New York and Brooklyn, and being able to undersell the toy stores made a large profit. The stock of toys which he purchased for a few hunidred dollars at that auction lasted him for a dozen years, being replenished fromn time to time with novelties that would attract the attention of purchasers. "As he accumulated money he invested it in toy stores and manufactories and be eanme involved in a fur estahlishmeniut by loaning money to a friend. Now he lives in one of the grandest houses on River side drive and has the finest private col lection of toys in the world." Really a Very Busy Man. [ Yonkers Statesman.)
