My informant i proved to be the man wI In
WHsintiu tiii with the premises in Mr Davis
ailonce and he politely agreed to show me
tlio house I would be able to see Mr Davis
in New Orleans
So we walked 1 through the pines along a
roadway ankle deep in white sand arouiut
Aha angle of a scuppernong vineyard of sev
eral acres the only cultivated spot on the e
itato of 80J acres of sand and long leaf pine
The road leads straight on t the beach of
the gulf between Beau voir and a smaller hou > e
on tho right owned by Mr Davis sister
both houses facing the water The approach
is from the rear and entrance to the large
ya d of Beam oir is through a gato at the
side The yard is a broad stretch in front ol
and on either side of the house t the beach
densely shaded and bare of grass or other living
the white sand of the

soil between the drifted wimows
soi showing up bcween dte wimowl
of dead leaves and decaying twigs scattered
under the stunted trees like black worms

from their branches their round umbrella I

short but ckau trunks outlining pleasant

out to the blue waters of the gulf There is
Clothing scrawny gnarled or gaunt in these
shapely little trees n in the black jack and
scrubby abominations so familiar in the land
scape of southern por lands and they make
a pretty grove but besides the live oaks
thero ore cedars water oaks with their

hickory a tree rarely found in such impov
erished soil A largo number of orange trees
w ei o killed in the severe weather of last win
ter and boino of their denuded stumps are
still standing As the visitor passes through
the yard ho is more than apt to strike his toe
against an incipient growth of cactus which
seems t be fighting for existence in the bar
i en sand
A few mernosbeep nrorningtbrougb the
yard keeping themselves for the most part n
near the unpainted fence which separates the
grounds from the beach n possible for curi
ously enough the fresh breeze w hlch is con
tinually blowing from the water hardly stirs
the loner limbs of the trees in tho rear of the
yard though still perceptible at a little distance
tlC above tho earth At the station house
the other side of the pines no breeze is felt
J whatever and the heat during the summer is
intense
i The house itself placed in the rear center of
the yard is elevated some eight feet above
the ground on biMc pillars inclosed with lat
f tire work It is one story above these broad
and flat with slab roof white painted weatherboards
I boards and green blinds a broad veranda
or gallery as they a called here extending
i the full breadth of the hoe front and
rear and led up to by a wide flight
of wooden steps flanked by two stunt
esquo vases one of which has been thrown
down from its pedestal and never replaced
A small wing extends from one corner in the
S rear it end projecting a little over the side
wall of the man house The exterior is of a
t tyj > e ordinary enough in this latitude though
smart above tho average in s About
thirty pace on either side a little in advance
avanco
of the line of the main house are two outlying
cottages oddly and picturesquely built but
conforming in style wit each other and the
nlaeon and completely mrrounded by

wooden galleries One of these i occupied
by Mr Davis n a office where he does all
his writing The other i devoted t guests
and in the slimmer i occupied by a daughter
Mr Hayes whose husband was of Memphis
at the time of his marriage but i now 1
banker in Colorado
Colordo Springs
Upon the front gallery are wide seated and
broad armed rocking chairs reclining canvas
seats benches and in one corner a hammock
blackened by exposure t the weather i
swung temptingly The main doorway open
ing upon this gallery i of plate class set in
tho woodwork in graceful curves and elabor
ate floral figures in Frenchy fashion It
opens into an immensely wide hal running
the length of tho house unobstructed by the
staircase which would disfigure it in a two
story house and giving full sweep t the
breeze from the gulf which pIns through it
with delicious coolness This hall i the liv
ing room of the family It is full of wide
soft lounges and round divans in cool up
holstery with tables covered with books and
pictures cabinets crowded with iaro pottery

vases and pots tilled with wild flowers por
traits in oil and crayon I bronze but of
Father Ryan the southern poetpriest
and innumerable articles of artistic
or reminiscential value many of them bar
ing pathetic reference to tho period of the
rebellion others with stories of distinguished
people of tho old and new worlds met a
guests in this famous house or in travels
abroadin short a place where one could
spend whole days ip delightful interest with
one of tho family to tell its stories The
double parlors t the left are much the same
filled up with quaint and old time furniture
the walls and mantles literally hidden with
pictures and souvemrs of great men and great
events but the whole produced with the
order of womanly presence the coherence of i
cultivated taste and the magical touches of
instructive interest which time and distin I
guished associations alone can give Her i
a bust in marble of the boy child killed in
Richmond during the war by a fall from
a gallery and here again a crayon
portrait of young Jeff Davis Jr
who died in Memphis during the epidemic
1878 whither he had gallantly hastened to
nurse his sister Mr Hayes sick with yellosv
fever She recovered but her faithful
brother wa taken with the fever and
died and with him tho last male offspring
of the president of the confederacy Tho
r parlor i also a library and there the
books which overflow into every room in tho
house are crowded into the shelves two and
three rows deep Hero is pointed out the por
trait of Mrs Doisey the New Orleans woman
whoso will left this fine old place to Mr
Davis for tho passage of his declining years
Here also conspicuous upon an easel in the
center of tho room is an oil portrait of
Stonewall Jackson Early and Ewell in
council of war upon tho battlefield
The rooms across the hal are the
sleeping apartments of tho family
the dining room is in the wing at whose foot
close to tho ground i a small outvin
kitchen its rude wais and pent roof com
pletely covered with a luxurious growth of
roses i full bloom Numerous outhouses in
cluding cribs barns and a carpenter shop a o
set in the background hidden by tIm trees
Two horses some few cows hogs and poultry
and the merino sheep in the faimyail con
stitute the live stock of tho establishment
The condition of the soil doesnt admit of any
farming at Beauvoir though Mr Davfs

some lots on the Mississippi Gulf const near
Beauvoir which he bought before the war
and was intending t improve upon the out
break of hostilites and afterwards but was
not able t do s This List he told me him
self when I saw him in New Orleans the day
following my visit to Beauvoir
My conductor proved himself a most in
telligpnt and agreeable guide He has lieen in
M Davis service for two years and told me
more probably of the life at Beauvoir than I
could have gathered in convcitation with the
family themselves He extemUd me the
courtesy which he said was not shown to all
of a introduction into Mr Davis oCce in
the outlying cottage This plao i truly
curious The room is very small and the
space is further limited by an even greater
crowding of books in doubled and ti iplnd
rows on shelves than in tho lilaar of the
main house A large center table is strewn
with books papers and stationery in the
greatest disorder piles of letters and manu
script tied in packages and addressed to the
southern chieftain in the hands of many
famous men are thrown carelessly in heaps
upon the floor A swinging tray full of huge
volumes of American archives takes
volume trchhes tkc up
much room and the few spaces on the walls
left baro of books are covered with
faded engravings of old cathedral towers mid
the like Her Mr Davis wrote his history
and here ho does all of his literary work
Who can tell the value and interest of the let
ters and papers which are scattered so reck
lessly about What contributions they will
be to tho work of the future historian what
nourishing pap for political roaring and sectional
tional reciimination they must contain An
enterprising newspaper man would have
been tempted t steal when surrounded by
this invaluable material for sensation and in
terminable controversy over dead issues and
the scratching of healing scabs
I sat down on the gallery surrounding this
odd literary den of this most famous living
figure of a most momentous struggle of the
past and looking out on the blue waters of
the Gulf of Mexico conversed with my guide
about the life that goes on at Beauvoir He
was thoroughly imbued with the sympathies
and sentiments of the family and exhibited a
discretion in referring to dell w subjects
touching it which suggested the caution of
experience in dealing with men of the press
They arc very frequent visitors at Beauvoir
but they are received my guide informed me
with invariable courtesy though their de
scriptions and attributed utterances are not
always read with pleasure or approval
But the correspondents are not the only
people who visit Beauvoir There are troops
of day after day A
people coming nftr young
man had preceded me by a few hours who
said ho had come all the wny from Iowa ex
pressly to see Mr Davis Parties of people
from the north sometimes come n far as the
gate and stop there peering over the fence
with gaping curiosity afraid t enter
It makes me mad sometimes said my
guide when I go out t them anti they ask I
if Mr Davis will see people from the north
The idea of asking such a question 1 he exclaimed
claimed with a disgusted expression Of
course Mr Davis receives everybody who
comes to see him with r
cme 8 Wi politeness
They come from north and south some
times in bodies of fifty or more during the
year of the Exposition in New OrJeans the
visitors were very numerous and one party
of 15 commissioners and various t repre
sentatives made a sudden descent upon the
place It taxed the resources of the estab
lishment but all were entertained at him I
Indeed no visitor is allowed to t1 t MU
out this meal a there are no hotel accommo
dations within five mil of the place One
would imagine it a eel e lh am un the re

where light bread or Joe Seldom

is proffered upon application instead of the
less palatable Johnny Constant or com

i not pretty a her widely published pictures

stamped upon her face and upon the occa
sion referral t I heard her talk in tho low
well modulated voice of polite women with
perfect ease and savoir faire to a host of la
inous men who surrounded her
Mr Davis does not rise till late in the day
10 or 11 eating a light leisurely breakfast
and tuning attie exercise when at humuotoo
little my informant thought Eight years of
the climate of the Gulf coast have been very i
favorable to his health though in the two
years of his residence at Beauvoir my inform
ant had observed the growing effects of ng
mot observable in the infirmity of his walk
He has an asthmatic affection and after h

better since then He makes frequent trips
to New Orleans always stopping at the house
of his cot on factor and life time friend Mr
Payne and still personally visits his cotton
plantations He receives a very heavy mall
and maintains great interest in public affairs
My informant again declared h indigna

ofMr Davis at the precinct polling place ex
ercising a predominant influence over local
politics
Reference wa made t tho fact that The

BEAUVOIR HOME OF JEFFEH3 ON DAVIS
As the hour for the arrival of the train
for New Orleans appi cached some people of
the neighborhood gathered at the station and
I heard references t the revival of the old
war controversy about the ultimate Confed

resulted in a complete estrangement between
Sen Beauivgard and Mr Davis who opin

avoiding topics which they had rather not

The rivalry between the newspapers of tho
city just now reminds one of the nock and
neck speed in the last quarter stretch of a race
between thoroughbreds It la probably most
intense between The Herald and The World
Both print mammoth sheets and multiply
supplements until they make the carriers
tired and both evolve sensational effects that
are startling if not sublime hi then audacity
The standing novelty of The World Is its
pictorial illustrations of men and events that
of The Herald is its elaborate cable corres
pondence and domestics telegraph service hi
which as usual money la no object The
Herald however is for the moment a neck
ahead in the race its business jockey having
let out another link in the shape of the most
queerly arranged head lines ever seen hi 8
newspaper One day they will DO arranged
across the top of the paper the next across
the bottom on the third they compel yon
to begin reading from the center and
on the fourth if you hold the paper at a
distance you may see a Maltese cross
or some other design The effect is unique
and many persons buy The Herald just
to see how far the Ingenuity of man
can go hi this direction without running
to seed but the poor foremen who have to
contrive and arrange this banner with a
strange device are hi a chronic state of
lunacy
The New York Star and Morning Journal
come next in the field of rivalry but as the
former is only a filly it is for the moment a
one sided contest Recently there have been
two new entries in the race one The Even

The other candidate for honors and one its
promoters hope to make a formidable rival to
The Morning Journal is The Penny Ledger
It is not altogether new to the public being
the outcome of The Wall Street Ledger
under which name it had a prosperous career
and it is believed to have substantial backing

figures indicate their growth In 8 Russia
sent u 7577 last year 23987 Austrias
contribution ha grown from 2707 to 15772
Hungarys from 13160 to 18135 On the
other hand Germany sent u 1934C8 in 8
in 8 but 176691 in 8 141922 the next
year 98111 and last year only 73099
and Ireland which sent 52768 In 8 lat
year sent but 36416 Of the newcomers the
Russians present rather the best appearance
being tall vigorous and with an air of reso
lution They are chiefly from the grain
growing regions of the Black sea and the
Danube and many of them are not Russians
in blood1ps people of other races have long
been located there
In 1847 Castle Garden was set apart for immigrants
and of estab
migrants a system registration estb
lished and thence t April 1 of this year
8450279 have landed there The Irish immi
gration which was notable a early a 1830
reached its maximum in the years following
the famine and in 200000
faie one year raarly 20
Irishmen landed at American ports And
strange t say tho immigration t Australia
ind Canada was a large in proportion
Hence the startling effects on the island In
1841 Ireland contained 8196597 people in
only 1851 5174836 6574271 in 18715412377 and in 1881
Before our war it was a subject of frequent
remark that only 3 per cent of the immi
grants settled in the slave states and it waf
only natural t expect that emancipation
would bring a change tho foreigner shuns
the competition of the freedman more than
he did that of the slave a only 2 per cent
now go south Last year 300887 immigrant
registered their destination and only 6126
went t the south Connecticut received 8023
Illinois 25502 Minnesota 12317 Wisconsin
9145 Pennsylvania 42103 many miler
among them and New York 109554 Not
only do they go north but t tho extreme
northern belt Of tho 116000 Swedes who
have landed at New York in five years
threefourths went directly t the far i
northwest and of the 21905 who registered
their destination last year seveneighth
went northwest of Chicago Tho census o
1880 snowed that while tho center of total
population was nine miles southwest of Cin
cinnati the center of colored population waf
as ta southwest of Macon and that of for
eign just southwest of Toledo That of ISOi
i likely t place it even north of that paral
lei for the Scandinavians I
Sndinavia go where then
neighbors and kinsmen have already gone
The immigration from England is singnlai
even varying but little either way from 40J
000 I year Last year it was 46215 These
are mostly middle class farmers and artisans
The Scandinavians are very much of the
same class and the Russians and Austrian
hut little poorer but the Poles Hungai ians
Bohemians and Italians are from the pooiest
of the poor in those lands It is a serious
question how far this sudden addition of
1000000 people will affect the labor market
and i the influx continues whether we shall
ie shall b able t work them over so Cat
into good American citizens
