K-vtHt lie Siijh the Yonns? Men Are
Improvident mill the Girls Too Am
bitions Advice From the Pnlpit.
SHAMOKIN. Pa., March 5. Rev. Father
Joseph J. Koch, pastor of St. Edward's
Roman Catholic Church, in this city, and
vicar general of the Harrisburg diocese,
is heartily in accord in many respects with
the views of Rev. Father McEnroe, of
South Hcthlehem, upon the marriage ques
tion. He thinks that maniages are falling
off woefully, but that the young women as
well as the men are at fault
Rev. Father Koch says: "Father Mc
Enroe is right. In the first place mar
riage is necessary according to God and
nature. In St. Edward's Church, which
embraces a membership of about 500 fami
lies, there aro 200 young men and 300
young -women who should be weddsd. I
occasionally from "the pulpit and frequently
in person advise the young folk of my flock
to become married, for It makes better
men and women of them.
"To demonstrate how marriage has fall--n
off in my pastorate, records show that
in 1S70, when I presided over a congrega
tion of 400 families at Locust Gap, and at
this place, there were 48 marriages. L2St
year in 500 families there were 40 mar
riages. There should be at least 12 mar
riages annually to every 100 families. A
large percentage of the young men of my
parish are improvident. Today they have
scarcely one dollar to their names. Some
of them earn from $30, $40, $50, and JGO
per month, and a few earn more than that.
"But soon after pay day their salaries
are consumed by foolish expenditures. The
young men are lured to the dance hall,
saloons, and other places where vice ex
ists. They indulge in the pleasure of the
hour, never heeding what the future may
bring forth. They ape the customs of the
wealthy and float along on the waves of
so-called enjoyment until in the end. when
they get out of work or become ill, they
are cast high and dry on the shoals of de
spair. "The young women first of all do not
marry because they want to step into
places where their mothers left ofT. Un
derstand, their mothers cultivated the
sweets of home after years of endeavor.
Why should not girls of today also be will
ing to undertake so bright a task? They
are not to be blamed for refusing to en
courage the young man to marry when he
cannot take care of himself.
"The young men of my parish are not
too bashful to propose marriage. They
simply associate with the girls for the so
ciety of the hour, feeling that if they were
to persist in their attentions they might
fall in love. with the maidens and in the
end be refused their hands in marriage.
"The young men think they should have
a house and interior fitted up like a man
sion before they feel sure the girls will
accept them. The girls expect to adopt a
style of living which they know my young
male parishioners cannot afford. Of course
there are some of the young women who
will marry even though the man be poor.
But he must have health, an honest heart,
be generous and industrious. Such a man
I say. is good enough for any girl in my
parish.
"Young men should not become married
until they are twenty-one years old.
Young women should not think of enter
ing the matrimonial state until they are
from twenty to twenty-two years old.
They should be willing to make home a
paradise for their ambitious husbands."

NEW YORK, March 5. Andrew O'Dwy

week, left a fortune of JCO.OOCf. He was
seventy-five years old and always went

He was taken sick two weeks ago with
pneumonia and sent for Charles A. Web

ed him the old man was too ill to make
a will. Several distant relatives here and
In Ireland have employed Mr. Webber to
settle the estate for their benefit. Mr.
O'Dwyer had often spoken to Mr. Webber
about the disposition of his property, and
the lawyer was the only one who knew
that the ragged man was wealthy. Mr.
O'Dwyer often said that he wanted to
leave the greater part of his money to
educate young men for the priesthood.

for Roanoke a suitable hospital, but it was
not until the Norfolk and Western Rail

became an assured fact. Several months
ago the railway company was induced to
take the matter up and with the private
assistance offered they concluded that the
plans suggested were most feasible and
the association at once knew that their
efforts would be rewarded. The building
which was started In "boom" days, near
Crystal Springs, for a hospital, hut which
was never completed, was at once consid
ered and it was decided to complete it. The
building will be large and commodious
and the contract for its completion has
been let to John P. Pettyjohn, of Lynch
burg. Work will begin at once, and fhe
requirements are that the building shall
be in readiness within ninety days. When
the job is completed the railway will at
once furnish it.

NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 5. Pauline
Kitz Gerald, seventeen years of age. who
is strong and vigorous, has been lying in
a cataleptic state nt the New Haven Hos
pital for six weeks. During this time she
has only spoken twice.
Her eyes' are closed and she apparently
Is sleeping peacefully. The physicians
have given her food by force, and she has
digested it and gotten nourishment from
it. They have not been able to discover
any cause for her condition. They sent her
yesterday to the insane ward of the alms
house. At the almshouse the physicians tried
hypnotism on the girl, and in this way got
her to speak. During the first four weeks
the girl was in the hospital her condition
was cataleptic. During the last two weeks,
however, this condition has decreased. In
response to numerous questions, she would
often smile, but that was all. Such cases
as this, it is said, are rare, and are usu
ally due to some powerful hereditary men
tal" disease. The girl was born in Ireland.

A FAMILY DISAPPEABS.
The Home of Dr. Diiiiiifriine Deserted
by lllnmelf and "Wife.
NEW YORK, March 5. There is much
speculation in Bensonhurst over the dis
appearance from that place of Dr. Duping
nac and his family. The wealthy retired
physician and his young and beautiful
wife and their retinue of servants have
completely vanished from Bensonhurst.
their friends are ignorant of their where
abouts, while $30,000 worth of silverware
and bric-a-brac lie .scattered about their
unprotected home.
Dr. Dupingnac is seventy years old. He
recently retired from his profession and
purchased the McAllister homestead, con
sisting of a handsome villa and several
surrounding lots, from Andrew McAllister,
chief engineer, retired from the naval
service. The wealthy physician placed his
wife, who is more than thirty years his
junior, in charge of the new home. It was
handsomely furnished throughout. He
brought several carriages to Bensonhurst
and made extensive preparations to win
ter there.
Mrs. Dupingnac left the house with all
the servants in October, but Dr. Duping
nac remained. He said his wife was trav
eling. He suddenly left Bensonhurst on
December 1 last, and has not been seen
since. Twelve letters await him.
Mr. Hemtng, his neighbor, has a key of
the house. Believing that some mystery
surrounded the long-unexplained absence
of the wealthty physician, a party of his
friends entered and searched his homo a
few days ago. They half expected to find
the old man's body there. No trace of
anything wrong was found.
Dr. Dupingnac, when in this city, was
said to stop at the Savoy or Plaza hotel.
Some who scoff at the "mystery" created
by the Bensonhurst search say that the
doctor has probably gone abroad.

HEffl HART'S CAREER
The Former Third Avenue Presi
' dent Saved From Poverty.
Jnine R. Keene, the AVnII Street
Bear, "Ward Off IlnnUrnptcy for
the ArciI Financier Formerly
" Worth ?10,000,000, He Una
Seen Ilia Fortune lhh Away.
NEW YORK, March 5. Two years ago
Henry Hart, the magnate of the Third
Avenue Railroad Company, was worth $10,
000,000. Within the last week he has seen
this wealth thp sayings of sixty years o
hard toll disappear. A judgment ot
$2,500,000 might have been hanging over
his head today but for the deal made with
the active bear of Wall Street, James R.
Keenc. Some friends ot Magnate Hart
claimed that Keene's support of the prin
cipal owner of Third Avenue Railroad
stock In the hour qf adversity was a char
itable act. Financier Keene has made a
fortune for himself and has saved Hart
from absolute bankruptcy. Henry Hart
is now eighty-eight years old.
This sudden change from nfflucnce to
comparative poverty makes onc'of the most
romantic stories of New York's rich busu
nrua mon Ilpnvv Ilnrt Ktnrtpil parlv la
j life to become rich. He was born in Uut
, gcrs Street of poor parents. He worked
in a clothing store on unatnam square auu
was thrifty. He was watching at all timeo
tor profitable investments, and before ne
was twenty-one years of age started to
buy railroad stocks.
He foresaw the rapid growth ot the city
and also the enormous value of a franchise
to operate a street railroad forever on the
streets of New York. Every dollar nf hU
earnings he placed in the stock ot the
Third Avenue Railroad Company. In 1S53,
after years of hard work. Henry Hart be
came the controlling factor in thi3 com
pany. For nearly fifty years this railroad has
been his mania. He has spent night and
day working to make the road u success.
In the early sixties Henry Hart became
president of the company. Every detail
was personally 'supervised by him. He
rode in the cars hour after hour watching
the conductors and the horse car drivers
to see how they were doing their duty. If
a conductor nctcl insolently to a passsa
ger or a driver whipped the car horses to3
hard. President Hart would dismiss him
from the service.
This was long before the period of pat
ent bell punches and fare registers. The
company had to depend on the honesty c'
their conductors, and President Hart saved
hundreds of thousands of dollars by wa'clu
Ing his men himself, and discharging h -m
for the least violation of the company's
rules.
Every share of Third Avenue Railroad
ctock placed on the market which Presi
dent Hart could buy was put in his strong
box. His faith in the road was absolute. He
would never sell a share of stock. This
constant accumulation of stock for twenty
five years was making President Hart a
very wealthy man. He was ranked with
the great financiers of Wall Street. He
would borrow large sums of money by
putting up Third Avenue stock as security
and then go into the open market and pur
chase some more thousands cf shares, thus
boosting the value of the stock on the ex
change. The top price of Third Avenue stock was
210. reached about three years ago. Then
Henry Hart owned over CO.OOO of the 1G0.
C00 shares of the stock of the company.
Mr. Hart was one of the first railroad men
to see the advantago of the cable system,
and equipped the road with that motive
agency at a cost of 54.00O.C00. As soon as
it was demonstrated that the underground
electric system was superior to the cable
he set about undoing the costly work of
seven years before.
President Hart watched the formation
of the Whitney syndicate and their efforts
to get a monopoly of the street surface
traffic or the city. To block this plan Hart
adlsed the Third Avenue directors to pur
chase the Grand Street and Forty-second
Street line and also the Union Railway
Company, in the district nbovc the Har
lem. The Whitney syndicate offered large in
ducements to the Third Avenue system to
consolidate. Henry Har.t refused all offers
and said he was convinced that the Third
Avenue system would in time to come be
as powerful as the Metropolitan company.
Henry Hart was forced by old age to re
tire from the presidency of the Third Ave
nue company six years ago. He. however,
looked after affairs as vice president.
He kept aloof from politics, but was al
ways thought to be a Republican. His
friend and confidant is Edward Lauter
bach. who has for years acted as counsel
for the company.
Henry Hart has been for half a century
a picturesque figure in the financial cen
tre. Ho is undersized about 4 feet 0
inches in height. Slight" of figure, but
with quick, nervous ways. His eyes, large
and bulging, make him look like one of the
little marionettes used by ventriloquists
on the stage. He would drive down from
his home on Madison Avenue in a rickety
old coach drawn by old grey car horses
veterans of the car line. At first the old
coach was drawn by a single horse, but
in later years two were rigged to the odd
vehicle. " It seemed for years as if this
old coach would fall to pieces on the street.
It was mended with hay wire, was scratch
ed and battered so that even an old night
hawk cabman would hesitate before look
ing for people to ride in such a vehicle.
Henry Hart was a friend of Horace Gree
ley. He had a suite of offices in the Tri
bune Building for many years.
He is a bachelor and lives with a niece
in the large house, 739 Madison Avenue.
It is furnished very simply. There are
no costly pictures or bric-a-brac about the
parlors. The furniture is of the old
fashioned kind, worn and ragged. On the
second floor of his home Mr. Hart has a
library and sleeping rooms.
lie has been very economical all his
life. He belongs to no clubs, does not care
for society, has few friends, and takes no
interest in politics.
During the last fifteen years Mr. Hart
hag'developed a peculiar habit. With the
going down of the sun he retires to his
sleeping apartments and goes' to bed.
Winter and summer this routine has been
kept up. He will receive no visitors nor
will he talk about business matters after
he retires.
The ordeal through which Henry Hart
has passed during the last two months
has made no change in his habits or ap
pearance. He has become a little more
nervous, and that is all. He does not
lie awake nights thinking about his mis
fortunes, but sleeps from nightfall to sun
rise as if he were still a millionaire.
The men associated with Henry Hart
iu the affairs of the Third Avenue Company
blame him for forcing it into the hands
of a receiver. They wanted to issue and
sell stock to meet the obligations of the
company because of the change of motive
power from cable to electricity. Mr. Hart
formed another financial scheme He
wanted no more sto:k of the Third Avenue
sold because he had not the ready money
to buy it in. Ho was confident that enough
money could be raised without letting the
public get any more stock. This plan
failed, and through mismanagement the
Tammany contractors have piled up mil
lions of charges against the company and
wrecked it.

SEEKING BBIfrHASE'S MILLIONS.
A Divorced "Wife Milken Claim to a
I.nre Utate.
BOSTON. Mass.. March 5. Mrs. Frances
Brlgham, of New York, will make a deter
mined fight for part of the millions left Dy
her divorced husband. She has presented
a petition to the Supremo Court of a sen
sational character.
Robert Breck Brigham left the bulk of
his fortune to establish a hospital for in
curables, and his divorced wife, in making
her appeal from the decision of the Pro
bate Court, asserts that his brother com
pelled R. B. Brigham to marry her, and
that before her marriage Brigham com
pelled her to sign papers waiving all title
to any share in his estates. She says also
that after marriage R. B. Brigham shame
fully abused her and was continually plot
ting to ruin her character and her health.
Mrs. Brigham declares that the divorce
nhciin.wi iiv R. n. Bricham was secured
. , . , ....,,, nnoc iwitli In hrr and to
j the General Court. She says she was of
I -.i 1....0.A onmc nf mnnpv to leave her
itriwu iiiku m.m- w. -.- -
husband.
The petition rehearses the details of an
alleged scheme by which Brigham tried to
get her to bring suit against him for di
vorce, giving her $10,000 for doing so; that
.. . ... .. I.. l.n n illlAflL' U'3Q
she UlU uie ine suit, uwi ..-. ,
made out for the amount and turned over j
to a supposedly disinterested party, and ,
that she was then induced to retract her j
divorce libel and the check was destroyed.
Brigham, according to the petition, then
threatened to prosecute cer iur jjuijui "
she made any attempt to recover the $10,
000 or stand in the way of divorce, which
he then brought against her.
The petitioner alleges that the hearing
of the case was made prviate. thus pre
venting her from obtaining much evidence
that she needed, and that false evidence
was presented in an underhand way.
Robert Breck Brigham's fortune was es
timated at $3,000,000 at the time of his
death, on January 2, 1900. He was identi
fied with many Boston real estate opera
tions, and at one time was one of the own
ers of the Hollis Street Theatre.
