WILLIAM H. VANDERBILT.
A Talk Vith Him Before His Depar ture--'hy he Goes Abroad The Change ill Rail. road Manageinen't. Wm. II. Vanderbilt took pass age on Sat urday for Liverpool. At the pier he was met by a news paper reporter and asked: "For what reasondo you take the trip, Mr. Vanderbilt?" "I had rather be on water than here. Don't think it is on account of poor health, for it isn't." "Yo'u are to come back by the Britannic on its return, I believe ?" "Yes, I shall come back here in four weeks, remain here four weeks, and then go to Europe again. I am going to spend July and A ugust \\ith my family, instead of spending the time at Saratoga, as I have done. I shall go through Switzerland while there." "Hlow has your health been ? "I have been reported sick nigh unto death several times, but that is all non sence. My health is good as it has been all along. Why [with a smiled, I haven't been kept in my house but one whole day ill two years, and I don't think I look like a very sick matr, do I? The fact is my health is i!t isually good. No, I don't rmake the trip for my health. "While you are in Europe will you buy ainy pic't res?' ' "I am iiiforrmed by telegralph of the pulrchlasie of' one for me in the Paris sal oni. I hope that the Americans who have puirclhased pictures in the salon will be sallowed by a special rtil*ý to remove them, so us to bring them into the country before i July, when the tariff' goes into effect." ''"Your retiremen fr111om the railroads controlled by you has excited a great deal of comment and speculation." "I suppose so [with a smile], but I know that management of the ;roads have been placed in good hands. It is simply a rec ognition of the worth of men who have proved their capacity for the positions in "which they have been pllaced." "Will your interest in the roads abate?" "Not in the slightest." "'And will the control of the roads re main as hitherto?" "exactly." ,,It is said, you know, that you are to part or haive parted wlit i a large portion of your holdings of stock.'' "Yles, I have seenl that story printed, but it is not so. My opinioni ofthe great value of the properties is not diminished in tihe least. 'I'They are thororugily suib stanltial, and there is no pirospect of their prosperity declining.

An Extinct Race-"The Soldiers in the Var of the Rebellion." The approach of )Decoration Day makes the following somewh:at appropriate: At the decoration of the graves of the Union soldiers in the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, General B. F. Butler deliv ered an address on "The private soldier in the war of the rebellion." It was a touch ing theme. There is always a wonderful pathos in a speech or play or story founded on a life that has ceased to exist. This is the charm of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," this is the power in Joaquin Miller's "Danites," this must have lent tenderness and pathos to General Butler's address. The "private soldier in the war of the rebellion." lie is dead. Or lost. Strayed or stolen, possibly. We do not know where he is, but he is not here. IIe has gone away to some place. Perhaps he has ceased to be necessary. Perhaps, if he were here, he would be in the way. At any rate he is not around. He does not go to the Legislature. We do not find him in Congress. lie is not eagerly sought as a candidate for anything. Nobody ap pears to know anything about him. Occa sionally he appears at the l)ension list, with one leg, a wife and seven children; and eight dollars a month. If flour takes much of a rise, lie will not last much longer at this rate, and we will soon be de prived even of the occasional glimpse we have of him. It is asserted, and quite generally be lieved, that at one time he was quite nu merous, and was even considered rather convenient, if not, indeed, quite indispen sable. It was found that upwards of one hundred of him were necessary in order to secure mere line commissions for three eminent and deserving men. When field commissions for three even more eminent and great men, upwards of a thousand pri vate soldiers were necessary. One thous and! It seems an enormous number now, when by consulting the Congressional die tionary we find there are none in all this proud Republic. But twelve or fifteen years ago even that, incredible as'it may appear to us to-day, was considered a small number. There were private soldiers and private soldiers. There were even hun dreds of thousands of them. And they were useful. They dug trenches; and they constructed long lines of breastworks, and then, when an enemy came within sight, they climbed over them and went outside of them to fight. They worked and watched and fought. Co-ope- t rating with great and eminent men who have since passed to their rewards in one office and another, these private soldiers sometimes rendered very useful service in winning great battles. Oh, they were use ful. Some historians have even gone so far as to maintain that without them the war could hardly have been carried to a successful termination. They were really quite useful.-Burlington Hawkeye. Renton Stables For Rent.

A fight is on record in the courts of Pes cadro between a jack weighing 750 pounds and a grizzly bear of about the same weight. The jack is owned by a man named Ipse and is vicious brute. A man named Black, a raiser of blooded cattle in that neighborhood, had been troubled for sev eral weeks by the visits of a grizzly, which I killed and carried off a calf every night, a and all his efforts to capture the bear had r been unavailing. Finally lie advertised t in several papers of the state, offering a rt- t ward of $530 to any person who would kil I the bear. Ipse road the offer and resolved s to take his Jack to the corral and see what the result would be. Accordingly the Jack was duly installed. In the night along came the grizzly, and seeing the l; jack and fancying a change of diet, he I iade an attack upon him; but as no one b saw the fight it is supposed that bruin fi made the first overture. Anyway, next e morning when the corral was visited, bruin lay stark and dead and the jack was quiet- fI ly feeding off the pile of hay. An inspec- : tion of him disclosed the fact that his breasi and sides were feariully lacerated by the bear's claws and one of his fore feet was. dislocated. But bruin was "all broke up.' lie had his lower jaw smashed to pieces; all of his rbyb on the port side were stove inI and one of his fore lg.s was Iractured at the shoulder, ad lie was generally smallsh all over. Ip-e naturally claimed the re ward of $50,, but Black refutsed to pay it. claiming that hlue jack was not a person ;and therefore was not entitled to the re ward. All Ipse's arguments failing, he resolved to have recourse to law and ac cordingly suit has been brought. w A SET NOT TO BE .BROKEN. The iteasont Why lie Hn Away with Three Sisters. A man in Texas was arrested for run ning away with three sisters-triplets-and was placed on trial. "You are a lice fellow," said the judge as a pre]li, uinary. "I know it, judge; leastwise that's what the g'ils said." "Wh«lat do you rll(1an by1) running away' witlh three women, and ruining the peace of a happy f.uaily?" 'L mean to inarr3 1'em, judge.'* 'Insatiate monster! would not one suffice. "Put it a lettle p!ainer, jedge." '"W'oatlld't one have been enough ?" "It Imughll t look that 'ere way to you. j.lIge, and it did to tme at fast, but you set therie was three of 'eiim, kind of one set like." "That d(oeiil't count ill latw." "May he it don't, jedge, bat them gall and me talked it over, and they was might? attached to each other, and said it was a p'ty for nie to take one of them triplets and break tile set, so we jest concluded to hang together, and 1'll be durned if we i. wasn't hanging' right out for Utah, and c no mistake " "The law does not recognize any such 1) Secuses." V "All right, old man, go ahead. There was three again one, and if I h:ave to sailer I can stand it; but I want to say right here, jedge, if an:y fool cuss breaks that set while Iin suffecring', I'll break his durned skull as shore as I'm a dying sinner, and you can bet a rawhide on it. The case was continued. " (Guitar Below Par. lIe bought a guitar, and practiced for six long, weary months. But at the end of that time a smile of joy lit up his wan and weary face, and his brow grew radiant withl joy as he inspected the corns on the thumb of his right hand. The hour was 10 p. m., and lie wandered through the stilly night to the boarding house where she lived, and directly under that window w which had been so often sanctified by her m presence, he commenced to toot; (Twang, til twang, bil) "I wandered b-i-i the book- to side (kling, clang, boo), I wandered b-i-i I1 the mill"-and the sash was raised with a na crash, and a deep bass voickyelled out: tu "I vish as you fall into your brook ofi ui your brookside, and trown yourself in dose II mill, oder I plow my vissil and call a it polizeidiener."

G. BAKER & Co. Womans Friend. Having been troubled for many years with kidney disease, with severe pains in my back and limbs-my ankles were at times very bally swollen-I was advised to go to the hospital for treatment, which I did on the advice of a friend, but found no relief, at least only of a temporary na ture, and I had given up all hope of a cure until my husband was advised to use Hunt's Remedy by a friend that had used it and been cured of a severe case of dropsy and kidney trouble. I procured a bottle, and had not used one-half of the bottle be fore I began to be better, no pain in the back, and the swelling of my limbs com menced to go down, and my appetite was much better, for I had become so bad that all I ate distressed me very much. It was really dyspepsia, combined with the other troubles. I have used tour bottles, and am able to do my work and attend to household duties which before had been a burden to me, and I can only thank Hunt's Remedy for the health and happiness which I now enjoy, and esteem it a great privilege and duty to give you this letter in behalf of my many suffering lady friends in Boston and the country, and can only say in conclusion that if you once try I it you will be convinced as I was, even against my own will, that Hunt's Remedy is indeed a woman's friend.
