"Richest Man in the World" Believed
He Had Inherited a Vast
From London Awwcn.
Just as every slave is descended from a
king, and every king has a slave among his
ancestors, so the very poorest of us is more
or less related to possessions which it '?
not hard to convince us are wrongiy he.d
by others. Every Tamlly has its tradition
of this sort, which accounts, perhaps, for
the readiness with which any Improbable
story is accepted telling of miraculous for
tunes suddenly thrown at heirs grown sick
with hope deferred.
The latest example of this sort cons.sts
In a "will" which tumbled from the back
of an old picture which Its owners were in
duced to believe would bring them property
worth ?1,000,000.
That is a modest sum in comparison with
some which have recently occupied the
minds of fortune seekers. Not long ago
K.isha Corey of Omaha. Neb., arrived in
London, armed, as he thought, with ?'1'
v.r.e.ng proof of bis title to the ?W,0Uo.uX)
Corey estate, which has been for sixt>-tive
yeais In the court of chancery, and con
sists of stocks, bonds and gold.
In spite of the inosi praiseworthy zeal
Mr Corey could make no progress toward
the realization of his claim; so he invoked
the aid of Mr. Choate, the American am
bassador in i-ondon. Mr. Choate took up
the matter and wrote to the court of chan
eery with the result that he was inform d
that'the Corey estate of ?40,000,000 had no
existence in fact.
Undeterred by so chilling a precedent as
the foregoing, there came to England a
month or two later Dr. J. P. Blackburn of
McKeesport, Pa., to claim certain portions
of England once owned by his ancesiois,
who had sailed in the good ship Maytlowe..
His researches brought to light coliaterai
branches of his family in the old country.
They cherished the same traditions vmn
himself and clear'iy showed that part of
the "family estates had comprised the sue
of what is now the prosperous cotton man
ufacturing town of Blackburn. Alt?fiel!^
a sum of ?15.000,000 was at stake. All thit
*Dr Blackburn was able to achieve was the
redemption of his family coat-of-arms from
the College of Heralds. 1 he rest of the
Blackburn possessions had all been leg.il!>
and properly disposed of. and the due or
der of succession unimpeachably ooservid.
A Michigan lumily had as boot esi3 a chase
after a smaller lortur.e, and in the end
they had to take criminal proceedings
against the man who had Instigated the
hunt and caused expenditure of the sum in
which they had been involved. Similar re
sults attended the -windfall- of a young
man who produced a will endowing him
with ?40,CCU down and ?10.000 a >ear. On
the strength of the forged document he had
proceeded liberally to " raise the wind.
The Sheffield Millionaire.
Another such ruse placed "the richest
man In the world" in a felon's cell, where
he languishes at this moment. This was
James Albert Marston, "the Sheffield mil
lionaire," as he was more generally known.
At hl? trial for obtaining huge sums of
money by false pretenses it was represented
that he really believed in the story of Ins
having inherited from a deceased unc'.e an
estate in Ontario half the size of IrelanJ,
upon which were gold and diamfm.i m'nes
galore, making him. as the papersset forth
at the time, the richest man in the world.
He lived in the greatest luxury on the
money borrowed on the strength of hi
great expectations, kept fast horses wore
the richest of garments, boasted of >achts
and palaces and royal invitations and went
always armed with some half dozen revol
ves " In reality he was a draper s assistant
earning 30 shillings a week. Now he

Wills Long Lost.
Of course, wills do turn up in out of the
way places, and bring about startling cli
maxes In the lives of unsuspected legatees.
One nobleman's will lay hidden for years
In ti e leg of a bedstead: another came to
light years after the ship Schiller, in which
? t was being carried from New Zealand to
England, foundered off the Sciily Isles Yet
another last testament was discovered en
tered among the ordinary Items of a day
ledger?a place in which it was as little
suspected to exist as that which came in
spirits from Egypt, to prevent the spread
of the plague raging in the district where
the will had been drafted.
The late Duke of Sutherland left ovei
fourscore of wills: while the one and only
instrument settling the affairs of the late
l.ord t'heylesmore was stolen by a bag
gage thief on the railway.
Post mortem tangles often result froan
the caprice of the testator. This happened
to be the case of a wealthy IJverpool mer
chant recently deceased. It was known
that everything that he possessed at deatli
would go to his only son, with whom he
had not been for years on good terms.
When the will was sought it could not be
found for a long time. At last it turned
up accidentally, hidden In a Bible. Sur
prise succeeded surprise. The testator had
left his "all" to his son, but that repre
sented nothing but a little furniture and
loose cash in the dead man's pockets. He
had secretly dispo!<ed of all ills wealth dur
ing the last years of his life. That was
his way of preventing his unloved son
squandi ring the fortune which the father
had worked so hard to accumulate.
The seireh of this disappointed legatee
for his phantom fortune was no more futile
than that which is every day being con
ducted whe? the legatee, and not him
that bequeaths, is the one In whose bon
net the bee buzzes.
Now Being Taught to Philadelphia
School Children.
From the New York Tribune.
Inspired by Gov. Pennypacker, the some
what eccentric executive head of the Key
stone state, the school teachers of Philadel
phia are organizing "kindness to animal"
classes, and are teaching the boys and girls
under their care to regard cats, dogs and
horses as creatures to be ministered to by
superior beings of the two-legged variety.
This teaching is diametrically opposed to
the ideas of the boy half of the school
world, which has always regarded a stray
dog or a suffering cat as legitimate game
ar.d a heaven-sent target for any handy mis
;siie By degrees, however, this deeply
rooted idea is being eliminated from the
minds of the school boys of Philadelphia,
and in Its place is being planted a Good
Samaritan feeling toward domestic pets of
ail kinds.
It does not take long for a new Idea to get
possession of the active mind of youth, if
it is fostered in the right way, and already
bands of boys may be seen searching the
alleyways and vacant lots In the vicinity of
t.he public schools of (he QuuKer city In
search of not a trembling victim of their
unerring aim, but a cat or dog that is in fit
condition to be transported to the school
house for care and attention from the Kind
ness to Animal Accident Brigade.
The boys and girls are being taught how
to handle a wounded or sick kitten or a
stray dog that has tried conclusions with a
trolley car and come off the worse for It.
If a doormat can be procured, the Kindness
to Animals boys or girls are told to use this
to carry the animal to the relief station.
If no mat ts obtainable, then the boys or
girls Improvise a stretcher by using their
coats or a piece of burlap nailed to two
broom handles.
The teachers are appealed to when the
sick or injured animal Is brought to the
school house, and usually a session is held
for the purpose of showing the boys and
girls how to proceed in relieving the suffer
ing of the patient. Frequently it happens
that the cat or dog is sultering only from
starvation or thirst, and Its troubles are
speedily alleviated by a little milk or some
provender from the luncheon baskets. If It
is injured, however, the boys and girls are
shown how to administer first aid to the In
jured treatment, and the patient is then
sent to the nearest veterinary for expert
As a result of this crusade In favor of
kindness to animals there have been pro
vided Innumerable drinking troughs, at
which homeless cats and dogs may assuage
their thirst. Outside the houses of the boys
and girls who are learning to regard home
less cats and dogs as creatures appealing to
their sympathy drinking receptacles are
now found, and these are filled daily by the
members of the family. No cat or dog
needs now go thirsty in Philadelphia, and
if it will only life up its voice loud enough
in protest no animal need lack a square
Monument in Their Honor Suggested
by Southerners.
From the Baltimore Jewish Comment.
A writer to a local paper suggests that
the Jewish soldiers of the confederacy
ought to be honored with a monument as
well as the>se of the federal army, a me
meirial to whom was lately unveiled in
New York. That there were many Jewish
soldiers who served In the southern army
is well known, though it is not so well
known that, according to a speaker at the
memorial exercises held lately at the Jew
ish cemetery in Richmond, Va., Gen. Coop
er had said that there were between 10,000
and 11MXH) Jews who wore the gray, and
this statement was made during the war
in explanation of his refusal to grant them
leave to observe the fall holidays. The
army could not spare such a large number.
Ten or twelve thousand may be an exag
gerated estimate, but it shows conclusive
ly that they were s> numerous that the
commanding officer had notice of their
numbers. Jews were well scattered
through the south during the civil war,
and the communities at Richmond,.
Charleston and Savannah were quite large
for those times. They bore their share of
the battle, fought with bravery, died on
the field and suffered the loss of their
property along with the impoverished of
other creeds. There is absolutely no
graund for the statement lately made in
an illustrated New York weekly in an arti
cle telling of the development of the south
that the war left all southern people ex
cept the Jews poor.
In nis address at the meeting in Rich
mond John S. Eggleston said that there
were twenty-four Jewish staff officers in
the confederate army and eleven officers
in the navy, and the first surgeon general
of the confederate army was a Jew, Gen.
David de Leon. So the Jewish soldier of I
the south has a right to recognition, and
though lie fought lor a lost cause his
memory should not be lost, too. It is
quite possible that when the records are
made up the southern Jewish soldier will
have quite as proud a record as Ills
brother of the north, whom prominent men
took pains lately to honor. Wherever the
Jew heard the call for duty he answered,
and it is a wonder that in the south, where
old-time loyalty and consideration still
hold sway, some attempt has not been
made to do justice to the memory of those
men who took the field at the call of their
From +he Lancet.
When left alone to its natural functions
nitrogen pursues a perfectly peaceful
course-, but when man succeeds in captur
ing it and combining it with other elements
it becomes a dire potentiality for evil, as is
obvious in the recent events of the war in
the far east and in the crime in the streets
of Moscow. The love of freedom, so to
speak, characteristic of nitrogen, is terri
bly exemplified in the explosion of the
bomb in which it is imprisoned and bound
to other elements. On the slightest provo
cation?a spark, a shock, a fuse?the nitro
gen suddenly expands from seemingly noth
ing, as regards the space which it occupies,
into infinity. This is, in reality, what hap
pens when dynamite, lyddite or other un
stable nitro-compounds explode when hurl
ed in shells in warfare and in bombs in
desperate attacks on human life. Nitrogen,
against its natural disposition, is locked up
in an uncongenial space In these com
pounds, from which it is set free by very
simple means In an enormously expanded
gaseous state with deadly effect, returning,
in fact, to its normal peaceful mission once
more. It is the analogue of the sword and
the ploughshare; in the nitro-explosive ni
trogen is the modern engine of warfare
and crime; In the free state in the atmos
phere it ministers directly to the quiet and
peaceful needs of plant and human life.
The Power of Resolution.
From Success.
Poverty and failure are self-invited. The
disaster peop'.e'dread often comes to them.
Worry and anxiety enfeeble their force of
mind and so blunt their creative and pro
ductive faculties that they are unable to
exercise them properly. Fear of failure or
lack of faith in one's ability is one of the
most potent causes of failure. Many peo
ple of splendid powers have attained only
mediocre success and some are total failures
because they set bounds to their achieve
ment beyond which they did not allow
themselves to think that they could pass.
They put limitations to their ability; they
cast stumbling blocks in their way by aim
ing only at mediocrity or predicting failure
for themselves, talking their wares down
Instead of up, disparaging their business
and belittling their powers.
Thoughts are forces, and the constant
affirmation of one's inherent right and
power to succeed will change inhospitable
conditions and unkind environments to
favorable ones. If you resolve upon success
with energy, you will very soon create a
success atmosphere and things will come
your way you will make yourself a suc
cess magnet
The Lateran Holy Table.
From the Tablet.
Like so many other relics, doubt has
sometimes been cast on the authenticity of
the holy table at St. John Lateran's. But
It would seem as If the doubt rested on no
stronger foundation than the mere absence
of detailed historical proofs. It is probable,
though not certain, that the holy table was
brought to Rome by the Empress Helena,
together with the holy cross and other me
mentos of the passion, and it Is quite cer
tain that in the tenth ce?tury the table had
already been long preserved In St. John's
It used to be kept at th.> high altar, whence
it was transferred in tne tenth century to
the chapel of Sti Thomas, and from there
In the eighteenth century to the loggia In
the apse, until It w$s finally moved by
Pius IX to its present shrine over the altar
of the blessed sacrament. The table (or
rather the large part of it which is still pre
served) is of cedar; It measures about five
feet square and Is over an inch In thick
Pittsburg the Typhoid City.

Prosperity and typhoid go hand in liana

Influx of outsiders, and these whose stom
achs are unaccustomed to the dilute sewage

aspiring receptacle for bacilli, like Wheel
ing, W. Va? may take advantage of local
conditions and wrest the banner from Pitts
burg for some particular year. Since 1900
Pittsburg's typhoid death rate per 100,000
inhabitants has varied between 124 and 144.
By way of comparison, let us consider a
foreign city of about the same size, obtain
ing its water under the same conditions.
Dresden, drawing water from the dirty
Elbe, has a death rate of 4 per 100.000. This
contrast is worth consideration; Dresden, 4
per 100,000; Pittsburg, 124-144 per 100,0(H).
Thus it appears that Pittsburg wastes only
from .HI to 36 times as many lives as need
be given to the 'modern Minotaur,' as
Osier terms this disease.
"Whence the disparity? Easily answered.
The German city being situated on a huge
natural sewer, purifies the water it draws
from that sewer; the American city, sim
ilarly situated, gulps down the sewage Just
as it comes. Pittsburg draws its water
supply from two sources of equal contam
ination; the Allegheny and the Mononga
hela rivers. Typhoid Is always present on
both thickly populated watersheds. Pitts
burg receives this water through intakes
above the city, and distributes it, unpurl
fled, with all its bacilli in good working or
Immigrants and Names.
From the New York Sun.
The Sun recorded yesterday the fact that
many Immigrants to this country change
their names to make them easier of pro
nunciation by taking the title of the street
In which they live. Thus It has happened
that many new Americans are called after
the streets on the lower east side. The
principal interest in this new tendency Is in
Its topographical limitation of a custom
which earlier had a much broader scope.
The cities of Europe used to provide the
names by which the families of so many of
our own Immigrants are known. Thus
Berlin, Strassburg and other cities with the
addition of a syllable provided names, but
these. It seems, are now giving place to the
New York streets In which the foreigners
settle. In most cases these street names
are the patronymics of noted American
families. The Ludlows, Clintons. Delanceys
and the like were first among New York's
noted citizens of the past. Probably none
of them ever Imagined that Its former
fame was to be carried Into the future
through other means than their own de
scendants and the streets named after
Most Expensive Whisky.
From the New York Pres?.
A man In Cincinnati bought a barrel of
whisky thtrty-five years ago and kept It
In a third-story dry-room, well ventilated,
and In all the Intervening period used only
one pint for testing. There remain today
only one and four-fifths gallons of the
original thirty-four, the rest being lost
through evaporation.
A celebrated physician says: "One small
drink of whisky contains more electricity
and rejuvenating: properties than any med
icine that can be prescribed."
As to quality, connoisseurs agree that
this whisky, considering: its pure distilla
tion and great age. is the finest in the
world, and that no king or emperor, tlie
Rothschilds, Morgans, Vanderbiits, Astors,
Carnegies, Beits or Clarks, with all their
enormous wealth placing at their will all
the luxuries of the world, can command
such. A careful estimate of the cost of
storage and a computation of interest and
insurance for thirty-five' years prove the
cost of this whisky at tiie present time to
be $4S9.01 a gallon.
