Oct. 13 (Special).— The ba zaar given to-day by the women of Nassau Coun ty In aid of the Nassau Hospital was a success. In spite of threatening weather every train brought visitors, and many drove in and came on bicycles. The bazaar proper was held in the main build ing in the fair grounds. At the entrance the first thing to attract attention was a mammoth Rotter dam cheese. A mouse presided over the cheese, diving into its depths at 10 cents a Dibble. There were a surprise table and two Klondikes. A dain tily appointed tearoom occupied one corner and a palm reader another. A special feature was a •'country store," which dealt in a little of every thing. The receipts are probably In the thousands. Several of the women's clubs in the county had tables.

Webster, which was filed for probate yesterday, oisposes of an estate of J107.000, which is given to the testator's widow and children. The widow receives the horses, car riages, jewelry, household furniture, plate, pictures and books absolutely, and the property at Greene and Clinton av.-s. fir life, ::nd after her death it goes to the children. The executors and trustees, who are the widow and the sons. Frederick H. Webster and William A. Webster, are authorized to take in trust the testator's share in the real estate of the firm of X <; Webster A- Son. which is three fourths of the real estate of the tirm. the income to go to the Widow for life and afterward to the chil dren surviving The personal property of the testator in the firm is left absolutely to the sons, George A. Webster. William A. Webster and Hawley T. Webster, In equal shares. The widow is to have the residue of the estate for life, and ai in r death the estate is to be divided Into sevenths, one-seventh to go to Fred erick and two-sevenths each m George, William and Hawley Webster. In explaining the apparent discrimination against Frederick, the testator says he has a one-fourth int. rest in the business, and he requests that his widow may have from the profits of the firm a sum that will give her an an nual income of B/sNL COKEY ISLAXD CHEEK FILTHY. TEN MEN ARRESTED— INDIGNATION AT DEPART MENT OF HEALTH. On a warrant issued by Magistrate Voorhees ten men employed on the dumping grounds in the neighborhood of the Harway-ave. bridge were ar rested yesterday on a charge of violating the health laws. After the men were arraigned in the Coney Island court the case was adjourned. It is said that Coney Island Creek is now in a filthy condition, although the health officers declare that only pure ashes are being dumped in the vicinity of the Harway-ave. bridge. Complaint has been made that unpleasant odors emanate from the stuff, and recently Coney Island business men held a meeting and denounced the action of the De partment of Health. The contractor, Charles Hart, was arrested not long ago on a warrant charging him with violating the law in dumping garbage on the meadows. He pleaded not guilty, the case was adjourned, and, on his being arrested again and arraigned in the Coney Island court, no one appeared against him. The next day the grounds were disinfected by the Health Department. BEAUTIFY ISC, THE PEXITEXTIARY. WORK OF THE PRISONERS. WHICH WAP COM MENDED BY THE GRAND JURY. The September Grand Jury complimented the management of the Kings County Penitentiary on the beautifying- of the grounds by the labor of the prisoners. The nature of the work was not men tioned in the report, and a Tribune reporter went to nee what had been done to win such a compli ment. One who had never before visited the prison would not appreciate the Improvement, which is nearly all outside the walls. It consists in terrac ing the space between the sidewalk line and the outer wall around the entire block, and in the lay ing of a concrete walk. Until this year the walls of the penitentiary were surrounded by rude paths worn In the weeds and fennel inside the curbstone lines. There was flagging only on the Nostrand-ave. side and so much of the Crown-et. side as lay between the ave nue mentioned and the main entrance to the prison. This has been taken up and a well constructed concrete walk has replaced It, while the space be tween the wall and the new walk has been formed Into a terrace and well podded. The work has been completed on all sides of the inclosure, except a short distance near the northeast corner, and a gang of prisoners, guarded by two keepers, was buey on that part at the time of the reporter's visit. While a penitentiary can hardly l>e legitimately classed among things of beauty, the manner iii which the time of the prisoners in the Kings County institution has been employed ha« made It certainly less gloomy in exterior aspect than for mexlv. Concrete hap been substituted for the old Seeing Inside the walla. Orooklnn OVbncrtisemcnte. Brooklyn Furniture Co.

TORPEDO BOATS HIGH AXD DRY. VISITORS TO THE NAVY YARD TAKE MUCH INTEREST IX THE LITTLE FLKET. One of the sights of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in which visitors show a great interest is the fleet of torpedo bo.its hauled out of the water and rest ing on stays. The centre of interest is generally the Winslow, which was an active factor in the Cuban war. but the Foote, the Dupont, the Ericsson and the Cushlng also receive a large share nf attention. The Mackenzie, on the other hand, gets but a passing notice from nearly all. For some reason she has never acquired the prominence of the others in the public prints, and many of the visitors seem surprised that Uncle Sam owns a torpedo boat of that name. In the illustration the. boat in the foreground Is THE KINGS COUNTY PENITENTIARY, Showing the new walkß and terraced borders. the Foote. the next Is the Win«tow. and the Du pont, the Mackenzie, the Ericsson and the Clashing are beyond In the order named.
