THE CREDIT MOBILIER STORY.
Some Things that Citizen Train Did When the
Demons Had Control of Him.
Here are some more solid facts about
Credit Mobilier and Union Pacific
Dillon, a Director, had one-quarter of
the track laying contract with Gen. Case
ment. Tony Drexel declined to be Di
rector when I cffeied him the chance,
He was then busy buying the Ledger for
' Child". I put in Augustus Kountze, the
banker, instead of Drexel, who, later on,
begged me with tears in his eyes to make
a place for him. It was too lae.
Tae day before Dix and Cisco were
chosen, I offered Moses Taylor the Presi
dency of the Union Pacific. Having no
idea that I held the power, he declined.
I then offered it to A. A. Low. He, too,
failed to take in G. F. So by a vote of
$190,000 000 out of $220,000 000 my ticket
killed Cvden. Aek Tilden if I didn't run

dred million capital.
At that time Jay Gould was buying 100
Bharee of stock through his Tioga county
friend Bush, to whom I showed the list
of Pacific directors that would be elected
next day. And they were.
What astounding changet! I offered
the Oakes Ames contract to Jay Cooke,
Clews, Duncan, Sherman, Uelmont, Je
rome. Garrison, Vanderbilt, Stewart.Gar-
rett, Morgan, William B. Astor, and half
a hundred other capitalists of my ac
quainiance. They all declined. They all

And where am I ?
To show how little faith Bhrewd busi
ness men hod in my Pacific Railway
sheme in 1804, let me mention that my
father in-law, as trustee for his daughter,
sold $12 000 Credit Mobilier stock which
I gave her for a Christmas present, for
eigi.ty cents on the dollar. The pur
chaBers must have received $200,000 in
dividends.
I discovered then that our railway
kings were as small as our statesmen.

I hawked $50,000 000 first mortage

these first mortgage bonds as collateral,

Melliss, financial editor of the World
$20 000 on telegraph stock to enable
Marble to buy World Bhares of Belmont
and Cranston.
In order to boom the bonds we paid
Shattuck $25 000 salary to spend half a
million in bribing the press; and so we
succeeded in getting stars pa enough to
build the road. It was curious to see how
anxious the Republican j urnals that
had been abusing us were to be seduc

THE FAST OF MARTHA TERHUNE.
SPINSTER.
A Woman Said to Hare Lived 11 Weeks on Almost
Nothing and 7 Weeks on Nothing.
Martha Terhune, spinster, fifty-nine
years old, was buried from her house in
the queer, old fashioned hamlet of Lodi,
N. J., a few days ago, having died of the
effect of a fast, which her friends say
lasted eleven weeks. On September 8th
last, Mrs. Gertrude Terhune, her mother,
was stricken with paralysis for the third
time. MiBS Martha was then in good
health but was terribly shocked by the
occurrence and took to her bed and
thereafter refused all nourishment,
though she did accept nnder semi coer
cion a very trifling amount of food dur
ing the first four weeks. After a few
days she left her bed and went about the
house part of the time, but never fully
recovered. The shock occurred precisely
eleven weeks before her death. Four
weeks afterwards she tasted, as her rela
tives avouch, the last food that passed
her lips, and the remaining seven weeks
or forty-nine days, she fasted absolutely.
Dr. John Soper was called in but she
would have no medicine. Mrs. Stephen
Massey, a neighbor, who is an airateiir
homoBjpathic physician, did induce the
patient to take a few of her pills to allay
s fever brought on by the loDg-continued
fast.
Miss Terhune was not quite sound of
mind. One of her peculiarities was an
aversion to Bleeping on beds. The Ter
hune family removed from Paramus to
Lodi about forty years ago, when Martha
was nineteen years old, and while the
furniture was In confumon the family

Mrs. jonn lernunu, n.ow-
in-law, said yesterday to a World repor
ter; . . ..
' From the day her mother received
the stroke Martha wanted nothing to
eat. I made her up all sorts of dainties,
hut it was no use, she refused everything.
For the first three or four weeks she did
take a few spoonfuls of nourishment
sometimes, days apart, and a little water.
One day Bhe ate a nine -nnnix j.
for her not an ounce in all, though. She
answered all our entreaties with 'I can
not eat,' and she didn't. At first she took
a little of Mrp. Mascey's medicine; final y
she refused that also. She lost very little
flesh and usually had a bright red spot
on each cheek.'
'Could she not have procured food
without your knowledge?'
'She couldi.'t have done it, sir. I was
about constantly.'
'How much should you say she ate
during those eleven we ikfe?'
'Well, sir, I couldn't say, but not more
than a few ounces altogether.'
And nothing whatever in the last sev
en weeks?' .
'Not a sup. It was just forty-nine days
when she died since she had taBted food
or medicine; she took a very little water
now and then very little.' ,
"How do you account for her living so
long without food?'
'La, sir, I don't know, except she lived
off her fat.'
'Now, Mrs. Terhune, one thing more;

death' .... , i
'She was, sir. I think if she could
have been persuaded to eat anything

a notion she couldn't eatj and she didn't;
that was all.'

RESCUED IN MID OCEAN.
A TRUE TALE OF THE STORMY
SEA—HOW THE CREW OF A
SHIPWRECKED VESSEL
Were Saved by the Cunarder Parthia—An Episode
of the Recent Gales.
On a certain Saturday the well kntwn
Cunard steamship Parthia ras between
400 and 500 miles distant from the west
coant of Ireland, having sailed from the
nort of Boston on the previous Saturday
For some hours a low barometer had
iriven warning of a coming gale. The
fury of the wind raised a tremendous
sea. The Parthia ran for a time; Dut run
ning is not the remedy prescribed to
captains who are caught in a circular
storm, and shortly after 4 o'ciock tne
helm of the steamer was put down and
her head pointed to the seas. The pas
sengers were below, considerately bat
tened down by order of Captain Mc
Kaye, the commander of the vessel, bo
that they should not be washed over
board or drowned in the cabins, for now
that the steamer's bow was pointed at
the sea she was i list one smother of
froth from the eye to Ihe rudder head.
Her curtseying might have looked grace
ful at a distance; but it was a tremend
ous experience to those who had to keep
time to her dance. Every now and
again she would 'dish' a whole green
sea forward taking it just as you would
dip a pail into water a sea that imme
diately turned the deck into a email rag
ing ocean a high as a man's waist.
The Parthia lay hove to for six hours.
At 10 o'clock at night the gale broke.the
wind sensibly moderated, the steamer
was brought to her course and went roll
ing heavily over the immense and pow
erful ocean swell which the cyclone had
left behind it. Sunday morning came
with a benediction in the shape of a
warm, bright sea. But the swell was
still exceedingly heavy. It was shortly
after two bells (9 o'clock ) when the look
out man reported a vessel away on the
lee bow, apparently hull down. As she
gradually hove up by the approach
of the Parthia, those who had sailors'
eyes in their heads perceived that the
was a vessel in distress, and that if any
human beings were aboard of her their
plight would be moBt miserable. She
was water-logged, and so low in the wa
that she buried her bulwarks with every
roll. She had all three masts standing,
but her yards were boxed about any
how, her running riggiuu in bights, with
ends of it trailing overhoard. Her can
vas was rudely furled, but she bad a frag
ment of a foretopmaBt staysail hoisted,
as well as a storm staysail, and she look
ed to be hove to. Her aspect, bad she
been encountered as a derelict, was
mournful enough to have set a sailor
mudiiig for an hour; but when it was die
covi red that there were living people on
her she took an extraordinary and trag
ical significance. No colors were hoist
ed to express her condition; but then no
colors were needed. Her story wanted
no better telling than was found In the
suggestion of the small crowd of human
heads on her deck watching the Parthia;
in the dull and deadly lifting of the dark
volumes of water against her sides, in
the gushing of clear cascades from the
scupper holes as she leaned wearily over
to the fold of the tall swell that threat
ened to overwhelm her, and in the slug
gish waving of jer naked spars under
the sky. Twenty-two people could be
counted aboard of her. All these had to
be saved, but it was very well under
stood by every man belonging to the
Parthia that they could only be saved at
the risk of the lives of the beat's crew
that should put of for them; the awell
was still violent to an extent beyond
anything thai can be conveyed into
words. As the Parthia, with her pro
peller languidly revolving, Bank into a
hollow, a wall of water stood between
hor and the bark and the ill-fated vessel
became invisible, then in another mo
ment hove high, the people on board the
steamer conld look down from their
poised deck upon the half-drowned hull
a-id the soaked, clinging, and pale faced
crew as you look upon a housetop in a
valley from the side of a hill. The seri
ous danger lay in lowerintt a boat. But
Jack is not of a deliberative turn of
mind when something that ought to be
done waits for him to do it. Volunteers
were forthcoming. The order was given.
Eigot hands sprung aft and seated them
selves in the lifeboat, and the third otll
cer. Mr. William Williams, took his
place in the Bteroebeete. It was one of
those moments when the bravest man in
the world will hold his breath. There
swung this boat's crew at the davits; the
ends ot the falls in the hands of men
waiting for the right second to lower
away. One dark green hamless swell
in whole, huge mountains oi waier, iubo
and sank below; too much hurry, the

quick as mortal hands can move, the
blocks were unnooaea out. umy judv w
time. Then a strong shove drove her
clear, and in a moment she was heading
for the wreck now vanishing as though
she had been wholly swallowed up by
the tall, green, sparkling ridge that rose
between her aad the steamer, then
tosted like a cork upon a mountainous
pinnacle, with half her keel out of wa
ter. She had been well stocked with
lines and life bin y, for it wt s clearly
seen that the pouring waters would nev
er permit her to come within a pistol
shot of the bark, and the suspense
among the i BBsengers amounted to an
agony as they wondered within them
selves how those sailors would rencue
the poor helpless creatures who watched
them' from the foamy ducks of the al
most submerged wreck. They followed,
the boat vanishing and reappearing, the
very pulsation of their heartb almost ar
rested at moments whn the little craft,
made a headlong, giddy swoop into a
prodigious hollow and lost to view, until
pieseutly they perceived that the men
had ceased to row. It was then seen that
the third mate was hai.ing the crew of
the bark. Presently they saw one of the
shipwrecked sailors heave a coil of line
towards the boat; it was caught, a life
buoy bent on to it and hauled aboar
the wreck. To this life buoy wat attach
ed a second line, the end of which was
retained by tbe people in the boat. One
of the men on the wreck put the life
buoy over his shoulders and in an in
stant flung himself .nto the sea and was
drugged smartly but carefully into the
boat. The Parthia's paBsengersnow un
derstood how the men were to be saved.
One by one 'he shipwrecked seamen
leaped into the water, until eleven of
them had been dragged into the Par
thia's boat. This number made a load,
and, with a cheery call to those who
were to be left behind for a sh-.rt whi e,
Mr. Williams headed for the steamer.
The deep boat approached the Parthia
slowly, but, meanwhile Cap'ain Mc
Kaye's foresight had provided for the
perilous and difficult job of getting the
rescued men on board the steamer. A
whip was rove at the foreward-arm, un
der which the rising and falling boat was
stationed by means of her oars, one end
of the whip knotted into a bow-line was
overhauled into the boat and slipped
over the shoulders of a man, and at a
signal a dt zen or more of the Parthia's
crew ran hi u up and swayed him in. In
this way the eleven men were safely
landed on the deck of the steamer. The
boat then returned to the wrec k, the rest
of the crew were dragged from her by
means of the buoys and lifelines and
hoisted, a'ong with six of the Parthia's
men, out of the boat by the yard-arm
whip. But not yet wasthis perilousand
nobly-executed completed. There was
still the boat to mn np to the davits. All
the old fears recurred as she was bro'l
alongside with Mr. Williams and two
men in her. But Jack has a marvelous
quick hand and stoady pulse. The
blocks were hooked into the boat and
soon she soared like a bird to the davits
under the strong running pull of a num
ber of men before the swell that fallow
ed her could rise to the bight of the
cham plates.
To appreciate the pathos and pluck of
an adventure of this kind, a man must
have served as a spectator or actor in
some such scene. Words have but litt'e
virtue when r'eeds are to be told whose
moving powers and ennobling ins ira
tions lie in a performance that may as
fitly be described in one as in a hun
