DR. DEPEW'S NEW MANSION.
The Summer Home Selected by the K»t«d New Yorker. Doctor and Honorable Chauncey Mitchell Depew, president of the New York Central Railroad company, popular DEPEW'S SUMMER HOME. speaker and prominent Republican, will not go abroad this year according to his custom. He is needed in the campaign, say his friends, and so he has taken up his residence at a beautiful place on the Hudson, midway between Irvington and Dobbs Ferry. Of course the genial Chauncey is not afraid of ghosts, or at least such is to be hoped, fot the place has a history and a very, very sad one. When Cyrus W. Field reached the topmost round on the ladder he declared that he wanted all his family about him and in the finest place on the Hudson. He bought a large tract, named it Ard», ley Park and got a residence to suit him. His son, £. M. Field, built a $400,000 residence, and his daughter, Mrs. David Lindley, also made her home there. The situation, overlooking the loveliest part of the Hudson, was lovely in itself and wonderfully improved, and all around it lived the most cultured of New ork's millionaires. Then came a series of misfortunes which almost force a belief in the old Greek notion that the god3 envy unbroken success. Mrs. Field died, the daughter. Mrs. Lindley, soon fol lowed, and E. M. Field became a bank rupt and defaulter, saved from being a convict only on the plea of being a lu natic. So all the lovely tract passed to stran gers, and the Depevvs have taken the house of Mrs. Lindley. It is a mansion in the most modern style, of wood, with wide piazzas on three sides. In it are twenty rooms, finished in hard woods, with all the modern improvements, in cluding bells and electric lights. All the first floor is occupied by handsome parlors, large library, dining room and stately halls. A large part of the second floor is given up to the children, and the lively youngster, Chauncey M. Depew, Jr., has a very handsomely furnished room near his mother's. He is wonder fully like his father, is well informed for a boy yet in his teens, and is so popu lar and democratic that he is generally known as "Buster." The Misses Haegerman, three nieces Mrs. Depew is rearing, have a fine suite of rooms. The stables and other appur- "BUSTER DEPEW. tenances are all in keeping, and no coun try gentleman in the state is better fixed for the country gentleman busi ness than Dr. Depew. Architecturally the dwelling is described as a three story gothic on a stone foundation, facing the south, on which side is a broad drive way extending from the main road. A hall in oak eighteen feet wide extends through the house, dividing it into two equal parts, and is itself divided by por tieres. Of the furnishings it is only necessary to say that they are au fait and cost $25,000. Here Dr. Depew will take his rest only, for it is no secret that lie is to be a working man in his party this year—the great worker, one may say. He will be in New York city frequently and go elsewhere when needed. "Buster" doe? not conceal that this arrangement suits him. He expects to enjoy unbounded liberty in the lovely woods about the mansion, with his famous St. Bernard dog and his little girl cousins. Alto gether there will be princely doings at Ardsley Park. EihMit Pipes for Oil Tanks. Judging from the reports from the oil regions, few of the tanks have pipes at the bottom of the great receptacles so arranged that the oil can be drained out*of a burning tank from below, thus reducing the loss from fire to a mini mum. The great fires at the Point Breeze refineries brought about that re form in our local oil works, and it has proved of great service ever since it was put in operation.—Philadelphia Press. A Mighty Feast. At Fiachhausen, in Germany, a wed ding feast of Homeric proportions re cently took place. The 168 guests got through one ox, three pigs, four calves, eighteen chickens, ten geese, and ducki and pigeons in proportion. Four hogs heads of beer, forty quarts of rum and fifty of other liquids served to wash down the solids. The shade of Gargan tus should rejoice at this noble feat.— London Globe. An improved traction engine has late ly appeared in Missouri. It is run with relatively small amount of fuel, car ries a heavy load and is provided with means for changing its speed without altering the stroke of the engine. GALLANT JOHN PAUL JONES. A Movement to Erect a Monument Ills Memory. The introduction by Congressman Amos Cummings of a bill to erect a monument to Commodore John Paul Jones is a fresh reminder that America has many heroes whose graves are still unmarked. The grave of Baron De Kalb remained unmarked for forty-five years and the rare visitor had some difficulty in find ing the 6pot in a large cornfield. In 1825, however, a modest monument was erected. John Paul Jones had a very peculiar history. His name was not Jones and he was not an American he was born in Scotland and died in France his en tire service for the United States cov ered but five years and he expired in poverty and neglect. The exact causes of these paradoxes in his career have never been searched out, but it is likely that his peculiar temper had much to do with it. John Adams detested him and it is easy to understand why the bold and bluff sailor, the man'of san guine temperament and unwavering selfconfidence, who always spoke his mind with freedom, could gain no sym pathy from the cold and courteous diplomat and statesman. John Paul was the son of a gardener and was born on Solway Frith, Scot land, July 6, 1747. He went to sea at the age of twelve, landed in Virginia soon after and declared at once that America was the country of his fond election. He made money in trade, and in 1773 located at Fredericksburg, Va., to settle the estate of his brother, wh® died there. He then added the name of Jones to his original name. His career in the navy is known to every American schoolboy, especially that wonderful fight between his vessel, the Bon Homme Richard, and the Serapis, com manded by Captain Pearson. The so called "assistance" given by the Alliance has never been explained, as she fired indiscriminately on both vessels, or, as the old song says: The Alliance bore down and the Richard did rake. Which caused the heart cf bold Pearson to quake. Jones entered the service of Russia, but quarreled with the admiral and re tired, receiving no pay. He went to France, but could get no employment. He appealed to American agents, but John Adams refused to countenance him and spoke of him as ambitious and intriguing, "a foreigner of the south, arrogating to himself merit that be longed to New England sailors." For all his services to the young republic he received but a gold medal and a sword, a complimentary letter and a neglected srrave in France, where he died in 1793. One Year's Work. At the twentieth anniversary festival of the Provident Surgical Appliance so ciety in London, Dr. Bond in the course of his speech said that he knew of only one case dealt with by the society in which any dissatisfaction was given. A young woman was fitted with a Roman nose, but the boys of the college, notic ing the change, made her life unbear able. She besought the society to help her, and was supplied with a pretty little retrousse nose so attractive that all her companions were made envious, and several offers of marriage were insured. Dr. Bond's society last year distributed no fewer than 6,223 artificial arms, legs, teeth and noses.—London Letter. Stopping a Customer En Route. A Maryland farmer who was waiting for the train to leave for New Vork was accosted by Detective McDevitt, who finally learued that the gentleman from the rural districts was going to New York with $400 in his pocket to buy "green goods." The farmer said that the agent of the green goods man would meet him at Summerville. Mc Devitt sent the farmer back to his fam ily and saved him the loss of his money and the expenses of his trip. He says that men may be seen at the* depots every day on their way to deal in green goods.—Washington Star. An Klectric Launch. An electric launch on exhibition at the crystal palace, London, is thus de scribed: The Lily, as she is named, is 28 feet long and has a beam'of 5 feet 6 inches, a deptn of 2 feet 10 inches and a draft of 2 feet. The electrical equip ment consists of a two horse power mo tor, supplied with a current from thirty "Epstein" cells. Her weight complete is 2,500 pounds, she will hold frojn twelve to fifteen passengers, and with one charging will run at her full speed of seven miles an hour for five hours. va* In old Trinity churchyani, New York city, in the most obscure corner, a flat stone bears the single word "Watts." Under john Paul jones. that stone lie the remains of heroic Phil Kearny, who was a son-in-law of Mr. Watts. There is not a mark to indicate that he is there, and on the last Memorial Day nqt a flower was laid on his grave. The burial place of General and Pres ident William Henry Harrison is scarce ly to be distinguished from that of any other prominent citizen of a neighbor hood. The present generation thinks of him chiefly as grandfather of the present president, but he was really the leader among the founders of three north western states. He aided General Wayne in the famous Indian campaigns of 1798-7 and received a special letter of thanks from his commander. He organized the territory of Indiana, prac tically founded the city of Terre Haute, won the battle of Tippecanoe, drove the Indians out of Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, and defeated British and Indians at the Thames, where Tecumseh was killed. He was soldier and senator, governor, judge, diplomat and president, but as yet he has no national monument. vmmhwuI as a Vermifuge. The cocoanut has been used as vw mifuge in India for generations by the beef eaters of the country, and is so well known there as a means of expelling the flat worm that we cannot understand why the information of that fact has not reached us before. When properly and intelligently administered the cocoanut is equally efficacious with male fern oil, koosso, pomegranate root or turpentine, while it is as pleasant to the palate as they are offensive and in no way injuri ous.—Goldthwaite's Geographical Mag azine. Couldn't Stand It Longer. At the dinner given by Mrs. Anson Phelps Stokes, the Olympian, clear, ab solute, indisputable, manly beauty of one man was set in high relief by a cos tume. It was an authentic Bysantine costume, with its accessory weapons and jewels, and cost at the lowest estimate $10,000. The man wore it with perfect grace for five minutes, and then he re tired.—New York Times. How His Heart Wh Won. When Colonel Van Wyck was run ning for congress many years ago in the Fifteenth New York district, there was a certain Irishman who steadfastly re fused to give the old soldier any en couragement. The colonel was greatly surprised, therefore, when Pat informed him on election day that he had con cluded to support him. "Glad to hear it, glad to hear it," said the colonel. "I rather thought you were against me, Patrick." "Well, sir," said Patrick, "1 wuz, and whin ye stud by me pigpen and talked that day fur two hours or worse ye didn't budge me a hair's breadth, sir but after ye wuz gone away I got to thinking now ye reached yer hand over tlie fence and scratched the pig on the back till he laid down wid the pleasure of it, and I made upme mind that whir a rale colonel was as sociable as that I wasn't the man to vote agin liim."—Ne braska State Journal. Natural Paint. Twenty miles from Newcastle, North umberland county, New Brunswick, a deposit cf natural paint (96 per cent, oxide of iron) has been discovered, and so pure that it does not require refining or even manufacture, since it is ready for mixing with oil in the proportion of two pounds of paint to a gallon of oil.— Exchange.

The investment of £4.000,000 made by the British government in the Suez canal shares will in a year or two, ac cording to Mr. Go&chen. be worth £19, 000,000, which proves it to have been an excellent stroke of business as well as of diplomacy.—New York Times.

This is the opinion of a man who keeps a drug store, sells aH medicines, comes in direct contact with the patients and their families, and knows better than anyone else how remedies sell, and what true merit they have. He hears of all the failures and successes, and can therefore judge: "I know of no medicine for Coughs, Sore Throat, or Hoarseness that had done such ef fective work in my Coughs, family as Boschee's Sor* Throat. Hoarseness, at my store, who was suffering from a very severe cold. She could hardly talk, and I told her about German Syrup and that a few doses would give re lief but she had no confidence in patent medicines. I told her to take bottle, and if the results were not satisfactory I would make no charge for it. A few days after she called and paid for it, saying that she woula never be without it in future as sfew doses had given her relief." WANTED!
