JOHN JACOB ASTOR.
HOW THE HEAD OF A GREAT
FAMILY SECURED HIS CAPITAL.
Th* Butcher Brother of the Great lv
Trader Gave the Pioneer of the West
•SAO to Be Bid of a Poor Relative—A
Princely Fortune Has Been Made Since.
Let me step back a hundred years and
tell you about the As tors. I may toll
you somethings yon did not know.
When John Jacob Astor worked his
way down the Rhine to the sea and
shipped to England away from his sloth
ful, lazy innkeeping father, he stopped
in London and went to work for his
brother, a successful manufacturer of
flutes and pianos, and unless lam very
muoh mistaken, junior partner in what
is still the greatest piano making house
in England, though there are no Asters
in it now.
John Jacob was on his way to Amer
ica, and only went to England to stop
awhile and learn English—a feat which
he had not accomplished when he died.
When he reached New York city, not
very long after the close of the Revolu
tionary war, he had heard about the fur
business and had determined to embark
in it. It does not matter whether he
peddled a little before that any more
than it matters whether Jay Gould sold
rat traps before he became a railroad
operator.
In time John Jacob apprenticed him
self to a fur dealer and learned all the
tricks and secrets of the business. But
in the meantime he had come to this
city for the same reason he had gone to
London—he had a brother here. This
brother was Henry Astor, and in those
days nobody questioned which would be
tho more successful of the two, for
Henry was a mighty and a cunning
man in business.
He was a butcher in the Bowery and
lived above his store there. He had
married a chubby, rosy German wom
an, of whom he used to boast, "She was
der pootiest gal by der Bowery."
THK TWO BROTHERS.
Now the Bowery was no ordinary
Btreet, and Henry was no ordinary butch
er. The Bowery was the southern ter
mination of the old Boston post road,
and down it came the bulk of the
produce of the countryside which was
eaten in and shipped from New York.
Amtmg other tilings all the cattle came
into town on that road on the hoof to be
sold to the butchers. Henry knew that
and so did all the other butchers, but
Henry put his knowledge to practical
use. He drove out of town twice a
week on market days and met the cattle
on the road up in the country. There
he bought the best of all the steers and
cornered the market. It was he who
thereafter set the prices and sold to the
other butchers. His young brother,
John Jacob, was just as instinct with the
speculative spirit, but he had no money
to buy with and so he used to borrow of
Henry.
Henry did not like that. He distrusted
his brother's shrewdness, or else he was
close with his money. At any rate he
loaned it to John Jacob unwillingly, and
finally he met a request for a loan with
a bluff "No." He said he would not be
bothered any more, but this is what he
would do. He would give John Jacob
the sum of $500 outright as a gift if John
Jacob would sign a paper promising
never to ask for the loan of another
penny from that date forever. John
Jacob jumped at the offer. He took the
$500, and perhaps that had more to do
with the foundation of the great Astor
fortune than any other sum he got in all
his life.
THE SPLIT IN THE FAMILY.
I have heard that there are some
Asters descendent from Henry living up
the Hudson river, and that the great and
rich Asters have nothing to do with
them. Ido not know whether that is
true or whether there are such Asters,
but if it is true it is all right, for Henry
unquestionably parted with the rest of
the family deliberately and in cold blood
when he paid that sum of money to John
Jacob so as not to be bothered by his
then, poor relations any more.
John Jacob Astor prospered amazingly.
He made millions when it was something
that nobody else unconnected with roy
alty appeared able to do, except the
Rothschilds in Europe. With those
millions, made by putting the entire con
tinent under a tax for its furs, he estab
lished not only a landed estate, but a
family with a principle, with a fixed
purpose.
He was of incalculable service in the
development of New York, because he
went to districts the city had not reached
and built dwellings for persons of mod
erate means. He built them very well,
to last as long as possible, and he rented
them for a fair return, thus establishing
a moderate system of rentals with all
the landlords of the city.
In another generation an unfortunate
split occurred, and the estate and the
family have since then gone forward in
two parts, much the larger part (nearly
two-thirds, I believe), going to the de
scendants of the elder son, and the small
er part to the descendants of a second
son. William Waldorf Astor now rep
resents the bulk of the estate, and the
little baby, John Jacob, is heir to the
smaller part.—John Ralph in Providence
Journal.
Asbestus Three Thousand Year* Old.
Asbestos differs from nearly all other
minerals in being fibrous and textile,
dividing into fibers resembling in deli
cacy those of flax and silk, and can be
spun and woven like any other textile
fiber, giving a yarn or cloth entirely
fireproof and acidproof. Although
known in Egypt and elsewhere 8,000
years ago, the practical use of this ma
terial in considerable quantities has been
delayed to the present age.—lndia Rub
ber World.
A Reflective Mind.
Professor Greatmind —Have you ever
reflected on the mysterious wonders of
electricity?
Sweet Girl—lndeed I have, and I don't
know yet why my bangs come out of curl
during a thunderstorm.—Good News.
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
Advertising That Pays—How to Make
Money.
On the sixth page of the Herald ap
pears a list of classified advertisements
which should be read by every one.
Persons wanting situations, help, or
who wish to rent, buy or sell property,
will do well to advertise in these col
* . I
umns. Desirable opportunities for the
investment or borrowing of money
appear daily. Other features are cheap
eastern excursions, business chances,
educational cards, professional cards,
personal notices, special notices, ex
change advertisements, stock for sale
and a fnll record of the amusements of
the city.
Sage's Scouts Out of a Job.
A class of persons who have suffered
/greatly by reason of the bomb throwing
! tragedy have hitherto escaped the notice
of the press. Mr. Sage was doing a
large business in options or puts and
calls, spreads and straddles. He was
{not so greatly absorbed in this specialty
as he was in 1883. He was caught in
the panic of that year and lost a good
many hundred thousand dollars, and
wince then has been more conservative
Khan he was before. Still, this business
[has amounted to a good many thousand
dollars some days and has afforded a
I number of men an opportunity of get
ting a living.
, These men are typical Wall street
[creatures. You see them hustling here j
,and there, buttonholing men and whis- '
Ipering in their ears. They are tireless.
! They know everybody who is likely to ;
[take a little flier. Sometimes as many :
as a score or more of them used to go to
Russell Sage every day and ask him
what he would charge for options on va
rious stocks and securities. Having got
Sage's terms, they scoured the streets,
'professing to give tips, and in the course
of a week would bring in many cus
tomers to Sage. Their usual commission
was one-eighth of 1 per cent, and the
smartest of them could make from ten
to twenty dollars a day.
They brought Sage a great deal of
business first and last But these men
have been sad eyed enough since the ex
plosion. This part of Sage's business
life is ended as much as though he had
been killed on that day, and it is a seri
ous question whether he will ever re
sume it. This has thrown these scouts
and commission agents upon their up
pers.—New York Cor. Philadelphia
Press.
He locates Oil Wells in His Dreams.
Butler county has an "oil smeller"
who can give points to persons who
bring out the power of the hazel rod.
Some months ago Cunningham & Co.
were drilling a well on the farm of Ira
Stauffer. One night while the well was
drilling Casper Keichner, a crippled jew
eler of Zelienople, dreamed that the well
was dry, and in the same vision he saw
a spot on the farm of John Shriver,
near the Stauffer farm, where a well
was flowing 1,000 barrels per day.
Keichner related his dream to Cun
ningham & Co., but a smile was all he
got for his trouble. When the well on
the Stauffer farm was completed it was
a first class duster. In their adversity
the owners of the well went to Keichner
and asked him to show them the spot on
the Shriver farm where in his dream he
had seen the coveted 1,000 barrel well.
He accompanied them to the place and
a well was started on the spot. A few
weeks ago the pay streak was reached,
the well actually flowed 1,000 barrels a
day and the place is the richest oil farm
in Butler county today.—Pittsburg Cor.
I Philadelphia Times.
A Woman's Strange Bequest.
i A very aged lady, Mme. Guzman, who
died on the 30th of June last in Pan,
was deeply interested, especially during
her last years, in the descriptions of the
planet Mars and the theoretical possi
bility of communication between our
planet and the neighbor worlds. Further
more, expressing in her will a desire
peculiarly astronomical, she made the
following legacy:
A prize of 100,000 francs is bequeathed
to the Institute of France (science sec
tion) for the person, no matter of what
nationality, who shall discover within
ten years from the present time a means
of communicating with a star (planet or
otherwise) and of receiving a reply.
The testatrix has especially in view
the planet Mars, upon which the atten
tion and investigation of savants has
been directed already. If the Institute
of France does not accept the legacy it
will pass to the Institute of Milan, and
in case of a new refusal to the Institute
of New York.—Cor. New York Herald.
Two Historic Ships.
i Out in the bay stands the "dear old
Hartford," and by her side the heroic
Nipsic. It is to be hoped that both these
historic ships may soon be repaired. All
the world associates the Hartford with
the exploits at Mobile bay, but besides
this interesting fact she is one of the
few remaining and one of the most
beautiful of her type. Hers is indeed
a heart of oak. She is not "dead, "as an
old sailor lately said with a sigh. She
only sleeps.
' The Nipsic is still stanch and sound.
A ship that could make her way home
| (half around the world) with a storm
'twisted propeller such as brought her
up from Samoa after the tempest of
j March, 1889, is not a ship to be set light
ly aside. —San Francisco Cor. Augusta
Chronicle.
Mot So Funny After All.
i A supposed practical joker ■went into
the Staten Island ferry slip on Saturday,
and exhibiting a black bag declared it
contained dynamite and that he intend
ed to blow up the building. Everybody
made a break for the door except a po
liceman in citizen's clothes, who knocked
the man down and captured the bag,
which was found to contain nothing
dangerous. The practical joker had his
jaw broken by the policeman's blow.—
New York Letter.
A Striking Jury.
Without doubt the most unique strike
lon record was that which interrupted
the trial of the Jones versus Gordon debt
lease at Burlington, la. The jury had
'arrived at a verdict but refused to re
port till paid their fees. The plaintiff,
iwho had demanded tbe jury, was anx
ious to learn the verdict and paid the
! fees. Much to his chagrin the verdict
was against him.—Cor. New York
World.
A Beeord Breaking Tear.
Eighteen hundred and ninety-one
seems to have been sort of record break
ing year. Horses have trotted faster in
the same time during 1801 than ever be
| fore; trains have run faster and further;
ocean steamships have made quickei
| trips; crops have been bigger and mam;
: facturers have prospered as never before.
