Moore's Estate Shows Paris Manager Held Fifty Divide $1,416,087 The estate of Charles M. Moor, for many years manager of the Paris branch of Tiffany Co., who died In Algiers on March 30, 1914, was valued yesterday toy Transfer Tax Appraiser Charles Hweeney at $1,416,087. One of the assets of the estate was a block of fifty shares of Tif fany stock, which received the highest valuation ever made for the stock, $7,683 a share. The Moore estate contended that the stock was worth only $4,900 a share and Harry H. Treadwell, secretary and as slstant treasurer of the company, said In an nffldavlt that a block of fifty shares could not be sold for more than $5,000 a snare. Tiie par value Is $1,000. The total stock outstanding Is 2,390 shares, of which 183 shares are owned by the company. Mr. Moore's will gave to his wife, Louise Harjcs Moore, $792,151 and $132. 525 each to four daughters, Agnes Moore Alaux. Millie Moore Cauderay, Ixulso and Hilda Moore. A trust fund of $23,000 was left for the benetlt of the widow and two brothers of Mr. Moore. Mr. Moore owned stocks worth $1,369, 601, the largest holdings other than the Tiffany stock being 6.300 xharcs United Stntes Steel common, $333,900; 700 shares United States Steel preferred, $76,630; 2.S60 shares General Electric, $413,270, and 400 shares Great Northern preferred, $40,320. Appraiser Sweeney based his valuation of the Tiffany stock on an affidavit by Secretary Treadwell stating that the total assets of the company nt the time of Mr. Moore's death were $18,923,673, of which $12,171,488 was the Inventory valuo of the company's goods In New York, London and Paris, and $1,007,582 cash In banks nnd on hand. There were deductions of $5,776,212, of which $772, 45u was the dividend declared on 2,207 shares of stock, and $4,402,463 was set aside for depreciation of Inventory, bad debts, losses by theft, Ac The earnings for seven years preceding 1914 were $7,544,319, making average earnings of $1,077,759 a year. The earnings for 1915 were only 610,394, due to the effect of the European war on the business of the Paris and London branches. The Paris business dwindled almost to nothing and the London busi ness dropped off to a large extent. Mr. Treadwell stated that the divi dends paid from 1908 to 1914 were at the following rate: 1908 to 1910, 25 per cent.; 1911, 35 percent.: 1912 and 1913, 40 tier cent.: 1914, 35 per cent., and 1915, 25 per cent.

Tim first suit wns ended to-day with tho receipt nf n check for 14,137 from tho firm of Flood & Vanwirt. which con structed tho Lake George-Bolton Landing road.

I, 1 V 11' a - 6,000 ORPHANS SEE WONDERS OF CIRCUS All Performers Volunteer to Give Crippled Little Onei Special Show. Jl I JO S EI 17 1 svLiurjxj It was mighty hard to tell whether th 0,000 little orphans or the ttlbsi of In teresting folks who mnks up ths clrcua enjoyed yesterday morning's special per formance tho more. In former years th orphans have always been taken to cms of thn regular two a day shown, but there wore so many orphans this year It was decided to give an extra exhibi tion. Do circus people mind rutting on their dangerous tricks early in ths morning Just to make a spring day happier for youngsters whu have too little pleaauraT Tliey do not. When the notlns waa posted up nnd volunteers were asked tor tho wholo circus family stuck up hand nnd hollered "Mo too." "Why, you couldn't have kept us out of that ring with nn axe," said Paul Jerome, the clown with the big feet and funny hair, who spent part of his morn ing holding youngsters on his lup and trying to persuado them that deanltii his terrifying complexion ho was a re iilar man with a heart as big as his feet, nnd that's saying quite a lot. So tho wholo preformance from ths pageant to the races was given, and one, could see by the vim and enthusiasm and the smllcH on the performers' faces that tficy enjoyed every minute of It. Happy? tif course th.i kids were happy; they were so happy they made many an old performer look ns If he wanted to cry. For there were tears ns well as Joy to this show. The crippled youngsters were the tlmt to arrive, dozens and dox ens of them, some with no legs, some, with no arms, a crippled boy nble to walk on crutches, nnd another boy car rying a little girl on his back, the stronger helping Hio weaker stump In to the land of wonders. It w-ns thns who watched them, the men of the show mo'tlv. who dlil not smile. I Ami back of these, camo hundreds and hundreds of boys and girls, healthy, freckled faced youngsters these, crowding In, some of them behind their organization bunds like little soldiers. The. freaks were tho fln.t point of call, und It wan hero that ono of tho nmutlng features of the day occurred. Zip, the What Is It, doesnt llkn to have people point their lingers at him. Il is sort of sensitive about It. So when a crowd of deaf and dumb boys stood in front of Zip and began to talk rapidly Zip took their fin ger chattering as u personal affront and called off work an a freak for the day. He dropped his violin and said things In Zlpese that fortunately no one could understand. And so It went from the time that thy were all settled In their seats at 10 o'clock and the first bandman appeared, to be greeted by a, yell of H.000 kid pe.ver, to the time when tho last chariot dashed ntound some time after "II o'clock. "Was It worth It:" said the big clown with the big feet. "You bet It was." Verdict Against Rddte. Koy. Ti suit of Mrs. Mary A.

Gears Were Only a Makeshift THE men who made the first em car knew that change-ipeed gears belonced in the maehine-hop not on the road. But there were to many problems to be tolred motor, ignition, tirei, cooling, etc. that make-shift mechanical transmissions were retained. Then J. B. Enre, Inventor of the self-starter anil other electric equipment, (rasped the idea that t!ta tttractivi ftrct ittwttn tut magntts it lastly varitdmni ctntrtlltd. Thus came the magnetic trantm'tttnn which dee away with the ptwerjtrh of clutch and gear sets, sub stituting powtr -attaining true elasticity and un belierable ease of operation. Owen Magnetic "The Car of a Thousand Speeds" To introduce this revolutionary improvement to the motoring world the R. M. Owen Company, the) Baker R. & L. Company and the General Electric Company (associated in the production of the Owen Magnetic) have waited until the rush to multiple cylinder cars proved that people are anxious to get smooth, elastic power. So now the Owen Magnetic is offered for general tale and is purchased eagerly by America's most dis tinguished motorists who get keen pleasure from owning and driving "the world's smartest vehicle."
