S. Merslck & Co., President of Merchants National Bank; Also Former State Treaanrer Respected and Esteemed in All Ave nues of Life Funeral on Monday. The community has received a shock and a large loss in the death of C. S. Merslck, one of Its most prominent Cit izens, who passed away very suddenly at his home yesterday afternoon, from an attack of heart disease, which had prostrated him about two weeks ago, but from which his friends believed him to be slowly recovering. Charles Smith Merslck was the son of John. C. and Sarah (Daggett) Mer slck, and a younger brother of the late Edwin F. Merslck, who died in 1898. Mr. Merslck was born in New York on the 18th of December, 1840. From early life he had been identified- with the hardware and the Iron and steel bus iness, having at first been connected with the old firm of English & Atwater, well known merchants of their day, and afterwards forming an alliance with Nelson Hotchklss, under the style of Hotchklss & Mersick.' At - a later period he succeeded these older houses as the head of C. S. Mersick . & Co.; known to-day as one of the largest and most prosperous mercantile firms In the state. ' , - - In 18S9 he was made president of the Merchants National bank of this city, a position which he held at the time of his death. ' " ' - - T v Always Interested In the politics of his city and state, he was honored with an election to the state treasuryshlp, the duties of which he discharged with marked acceptance from 1899 to 1901. . He was a member of the " Union League, the Quinnlplack club and many other organizations of a social or civic character. In his church connection he was identified with the' Center church of this city, of which he became a member In 1876, serving also on Its society's com mittee for many years, and with hiB daughter contributing one of the mem orial windows which adorn its house of worship Mr. Mersick was married In 1865 to Ellen Louisa English, a daughter of George D. and Mary E. (Cannon) Eng lish. Mrs. Mersick died in 1894, leaving one only daughter, Miss Mary E. Mer sick, who has since been a faithful companion In many travels, both in this country and abroad, as well as the brightness and comfort of his home. , Endowed by nature with marked ability, Mr. Mersick has risen by the force of personal Industry and fidelity to duty in the various channels which have opened before him till he had at tained a commanding position In the community, commercially, financially, politically and In almost every relation into which a busy life had placed him. Of a somewhat quiet and retiring dis position, his sagacity and good - judg ment combined with that ' quality which may be characterized as a genial reserve, '.had given him a personality which surrounded him with many friends and made him much sought for as counsellor and active participant In numerous public and private enter prises in which he became an influen tial and leading factor. His funeral will be attended on Mon day afternoon from his late residence, 1215 Chapel street. The services will be conducted by Rv. Dr. Smyth, pas tor of Center church, assisted by Rev. Newell M. Calhoun, pastor of the Sec ond Congregational church of Wlnsted- The interment will be In the Evergreen cemetery. HUTTON'S DEATH MASKS. Critic Had Finest Private Collection In the World. Laurence Hutton, whose death occur- ed recently at Princeton, N. J., had a collection of death masks of famous men which was said to be the finest and most remarkable private collection in the world. The second floor of his former residence in New York city, 229 West Thirty-fourth street, was assign ed as a museum for these portrats In plaster. The collection Is now in the library of Princeton university. Mr. Hutton began collecting death masks of established authenticity and pecu liar historical significance over forty years ago. - Early in the sixties he was a clerk in a New York store. One afternoon he left the store early to buy a book for his employer In a little book shop up town. A boy came Into the book shop with a death mask in his hand. 'Say, boss, Is this worth anything?" he asked Hutton. "That's a mask of Benjamin Frank lin. I'll give you 50 cents for it," said Hutton. The proprietor of the book shop, how- ever, bought the mask, but Hutton ask ed the boy where he got Franklin's death portrait. Oh, over on Second street, near Sec ond avenue, in an ash bin. There's a lot more there." Button's curiosity was aroused- He went up into Second street, near Sec ond avenue, and made a house to house exploration until he found the house where the death masks were. "There were a lot of those masks down in the cellar," a woman told him. No one knows where they came from. I got tired of seeing the horrible things around, so I had them thrown into the ash bin." Mr. Hutton dug in the ash bin and found there another mask of Franqltn one of Oliver Cromwell, one of Words worth, one of Scott and casts from the skulls of Robert Bruce (as supposed) and Robert Burns. Mr. Hutton secur ed these and became so much Interest ed In the subject that he forthwith started a collection. In the collection which he presented to Princeton university a few years ago were more' than seventy masks. In this collection, for which Princeton provided a special room in the univer sity library, are the death masks of Napoleon, Washington, Lincoln. Thack eray, Daniel Webser, Queen Elizabeth, Dean Swift, Coleridge, Laurence Sterne, Keats, Professor Richard Owen, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Sir Isaac Newton, Dion Boucicault, John McCul lough, Barrett, Mary Queen of Scots, Henry Clay, John G Calhoun, Edmund Burke, Sir Thomas Moore, Oliver Crom well, Aaron Burr, Edmund Kean, Da vid Garrick, Frederick the Great, Mira- beau, Robespierre, Murat, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Haydn, Wordsworth, Na poleon III., Charles II., Goethe, Luther, Dante, Franklin, Edwin Booth, Pope Plus IX., Sir Walter Scott, Tasso, Mrs. Siddons, Louise of Prussia, Schiller, Curran, Disraeli, Count CavoUr, Tom Paine and Lord Palmerston. Death masks also of noted men who died In very recent years were added to the collection. , r Many of the death masks were se cured by Mr. Hutton by accident in odd circumstances. The mask of Dean Swift, the only one in existence, was picked up years ago In a London curi osity shop. Mr. Hutton gave a shilling for it. Count Cavour's mask caught Mr. Button's eye in Rome one day while he and Mrs. Hutton were on their way to dine with the American consul. He jumped fro'm the carriage, got the mask for a song and took it to dinner with him. The death mask of Thack eray Is the only one in existence Washington Times. THB FLASHLIGHT FIEND. Former Tintype Artists of the Country Who Have Invaded the City. ; "Has it ever occurred to you," asked a New York photographer, "that the tintype artist, as he called himself, is passing out of business? Here and there you will find him, at a resort like Coney Island or Far.Rockaway, and not long ago I found one in the vicinity of Grant s Tomb. "But the tintype artist of the small er country town is a memory, you ask what has become of him? Most of them, I think, have' become Itinerant flashlight artists. "; ' ' ' , "And for real battlefield nerve they are ahead of the Japanese soldiers. They will walk Into an office with their outfit and announce that they have come v to take a flash, ot the room, and before the occupants'irealize it the ap paratus is at work, rthe flash Is made, and the chaps who ' do It there are generally two of them fold up their tripod and vanish. "Then the occupants of the room be- gin to wonder what it was for. They And out within a few days. One of the Itinerants returns with mounted pic tures, which he offers for $1 each. "Strange to say, the people who have been flashed buy the product, but I am of the opinion, that they often do so to keep the pictures from being exhibited elsewhere. In other words they buy up the circulation. If a b6ok agent or canvasser gets &c- cess to your office you show him the door, but one of these strolling flash' light fiends can walk in upon you, dls- tract you from your business, fill your room with smoke walk out, come back in a week, and sell you what he calls a picture, and you submit it quietly as a young one who comes in contact with a nursing botle. And the funny thing about it Is that this chap comes to the city to do his business. You never find him In the country town." New York Sun.
