CHARLES S. MERSICK DEAD.
SUDDEN DEMISE OF PltQMiyEXT
Prostrated by Heart Disease Only Two
Weeks Ago Was Influential In Con
mcrcial, Financial and Political
World Head of C. 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
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
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
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
HUTTON'S DEATH MASKS.
Critic Had Finest Private Collection In
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
The proprietor of the book shop, how-
ever, bought the mask, but Hutton ask
ed the boy where he got Franklin's
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
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
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
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
