I RETT'S DARKENED LIFJ.
ins Why She Lives in Re and Has Never Married. Letter to Philadelphia Prat*. Garrett is the wealthiest spin litod States. With Baltimore road stock at par she is prob ■ight or ten millions. No one Garrett family really knows iry is worth. She is certainly han her weight in gold, and married. When her father, irrett, died, his fortune was timated at from ,000,000 all to $50,000,000. No accurate s ever made. In fact efforts > conceal the figures from the ;n the gossips and impecuni ngers ceased guessing at the ;h, they began to estimate on -’s fortune. Quite a number cquaintances gloated over the ;iven in the newspapers of her lerties and the estimated ex fortune. What a prize she een in the matrimonial lottery! never in the lottery, so the Baltimore society looked and a. ;t is not a marrying woman, is 20 years of age she had no falling in love than she has , nearly that ago. Though not man, she is a highly educated a the order of the Rose Cleve- Iheis net strong minded, but ge her great wealth and steer business and society without having ainas a magnet. While not a handsome Miss Garrett has a charm ing manner, pleasing way about her that makes one f w e t that she is homely or that sne is rich, a\ to only realize that he is talking to a nsiblo and cultured woman who is intoresi in tbo noble work of elevat ing her sex an caring for poor and suffer ing womanhoci Miss Garretts the greatest of all the Garretts in hoijuiet and unosteutious way of doing goor Her charities are not paraded beforeie public, and she can sel dom he persuaj to permit her name to be published in collection with her generous acts. Nearly (try institution for the in valid or the orphan in Maryland re ceives handsomgifts from her annually. She has endowl an institution for a home where poor cldren taken from vicious parents will fin a refuge. A fine building has been ere. pi, Miss Garrett and her brother Rcberf donating a large sura of money forthisiurpose. She is the patroness of the Socie y hr, the Protection of Children from Cruelty p.i Vice. Though real(l in lux >rv, Miss Garrett’s life has been tiged with sadness. Riches have had no ,arm for her, and had her father taken til advice of her mother and herself he wouhnot have wrecked himself on the shoals ofambition. John W. Gar rett’s wife anddaughter were devoted to him, and he wa no doubt the only great railroad magnatof his time who confided all his financial,chemos to the women of his household, ’ass Mary was her father’s counsellor in eveything. He had a dozen private secretarie, but she was his only confidential aid. After important railroad conferences the poceedings in detail were written out by Hs stenographer aud he then took them hmo for her to read. To gether they conspired what more it was best to do. Her business tact and judg ment frequently sived her father from disastrous battles wth old Vanderbilt. In his private offices at ]is country home and his city mansion she lad her little rosewood desk beside her fathe’s table, and here they often worked and couulted late into the night. She looked ajer all his other inter est* outside of the raixoad, and it is said he never bought a piece rf property or made any important investment without first consulting her. It was this influence between husband, wife and daughter that made John W. Garrett’s domestic life so happy. Mary Garrett seldom appears in society. She nursed her mother in her last illness, and during her father’s decline she devoted herself entirely to him. For months his mind was unsettled, and when the nurses could not quiet him the patient daughter, by her soothing presence, calmed him. Night and day she was with him until death came, and the blow was greater to her than to any of the rest of the family. A few years later, aud just when she hud begun to take a renewed interest in life, her brother Robert broke down and she found herself again the nurse and companion of an in valid. She tleveled around the world with him, comforting her sister-in-law in her troubles and controlling her brother in his eccentric notions. Since their return she continues with her brother in the cottage in Ringwood, N. J. Had she married, her home life would have been a happy one and she a model wife. The dread of marrying a man who would care only for the millions she would bring him has no doubt led her into the lonely life of a spinster. In personal appearance Miss Garrett is of a small but trim figure, dirk hair and eyes, and not resembling either of her brothers. She wears glasses constantly and dresses in black. She has never put aside the heavy mourning robes and gowns she donned at her father’s death. She was never fond of jewelry, and a solitaire dia mond ring is about the only ornament she has ever worn. A SHIPBUILDER TALKS. He Tells When the New Vessels Will be Completed. From the Washington Post. Mr. Charles H. Cramp, of the shipbuild ing yards of Cramp Bros., at Philadelphia, was at the Riggs house last night. Mr. Cramp is building five vessels for the new navy—the Yorktown, the Baltimore, the Philadelphia, the Newark and the Vesuvius. Ihe Baltimore, Yorktown and Vesuvius have already been launched. “The Vesuvius,” said Mr. Cramp, “will be ready for service iu about two months, pbe would have been ready before this had it not been resolved to Increase the size of tier ten-inch dynamite guns. Fifteen-inch guns will be put in instead of the ten-incb, and the designers thus expect to vastly in crease the desti uotice power of the vessel. A lifteen-inch dynamite gun, constructed according to Lieut. Zalinski’s plans, has three times the power of a ten-inch gun, the difference between 200 and '")0, the ratio of increase in the power of dynamite being very great, when the V esuvius is completed and ready for service she will be a very interesting addition, not only to our navy, but to the lighting navies ef the world. She will be the first of her ki m anf * 1 * lO experiments made with her '' ill be watched with the closest attention, r-'en should she be a failure, it will bo ''ortli all the government is paying for her ■o test the capabilities of dynamite in naval action. But I do not expect her to he a failure. 1 think, on tho contrary, that B he Will lie a great success.” "How is tho Yorktown?” 1 !le hfktown will soon be completed, the electric plant is generally the las thing 1,1 go in, and that wo are just putting in now.” * r "And the Philadelphia and Newark?” , frames of both aro up and the hulls tv . advanced. Wo are moving along very satisfactorily.” A' as there really any injury done to the rn-post of the iiaitimore in tae launcn mg?’ ‘None. The newspaper reports were ex aggerated. We took off the plates, made i examination and replaced the ulatos. It 'as a trifling incident, and the Baltimore’s ft ‘rn post is even stronger thou it ever " b'ch will b? the fastest of the five war shlpsyou are building ?” and he Baltimore, I think.” .And what will bo her rate of speod i” ~ .. 1 nat I would uot like to speak of i nots*” r °bably about oighteen liui is the fastest vessel you Lave evor ‘Jay Gould’s yacht, the Ataluuta. She made sevouteeii knots." “What do you think is the lynit of speed in steam vessels}” “Ah, there you are too much fer me. They are building some 20-knot war ships in England, and some of the English tor pedo boats made even better time than that. It is impossible to say what the possibilties of the future are in this direction. You see there must betaken into considerati n a number of c intending and conflicting forces. If we increase the rate of speed we must increase the coal supply and lessen the armament. There is a point beyond which the coal supply cannot be increased if the vessel is to be run any distance without recoaling. Nor can we lessen the weight of armament beyond a certain point. Machinery, of course, does a groat deal. For a time the struggle was to get the greatest speed from the lightest machinery, but the disposition now is to make the machinery a little heavier, so that we have reached and passed the limit of light machinery as applied to the highest rate of speed. While 1 do not believe we have yet reached the limit of speed, I think there is a practical limit to it, though there may not be one in theory. But there is one element in ship building in which we have gone to the utmost ex tremity, and that is in the combination of lightness and strength in the construction of frames and hulls. I don’ see that we can g i any further in this direction.” “Do you think the worK of rebuilding the navy will continue under the republican administration i” “Oh, yes. The e has been no partisan ship in the work so far doue. Republi cans and democrats alike voted for the various bills that have been passed by con gress. lam confident there will be no chock in the work begun.” “What do you think of the prospects of a revival of shipbuilding in the United St-tea?” “It is very good. There was a strong sentiment in the last session of congress in favor of some law to encourage a revival of our merchant marine. All the members of the Atlantic coast states would favor such a measure, an 1 the southern members, too, for there is a prospect of a largo increase of trade along the Gulf coast with South America. I think the next congress is almost certain to do something to assist our shipping in dustry. Look at France. What a splendid growth of their merchant marine during the last few years! The French govern ment has adopted a system of bounties that hai been most successful. They allow so much per ton for every vessel launched from French shin-yards, and then so much per ton for every 1,000 mi'es run by the vessel and so much per kilogram of ma chinery put in. And the Italian govern ment is even more liberal in her bounties than France. Both these countries have reaped rich rewards from their liberality toward their shipping interests.” MME. PATTI’S PET. A Chat with Carli-a Patti, Who is Back in the Creole City. Here is something readable from the New Orleans IHcayune: It is not often in real life that one sees a fairy tale come true, but there has recently returned to a little house on Ursulines street a little maid who for a year and a half has been living almo-t over again the wonderful story of “Cinderella.” Her name is Carlina Patti, and the fairy god mother who summoned her from her quiet little home to be her companion in wonder ful travels, and to share the wealth and splendors of & magnificent castle, is the great singer called Adelina Patti by some and La Diva by others. The rain was falling in the most persistent and dreary fashion yesterday when a re porter knocked at the door of the little house on Ursulines street. In an instant there was a patter of high-heeled shoes across the gallery, and Carlina herself, with her short black hair curling around her face and a smile of welcome in her big black eyes, opened the door. She wore a delicious gown of pink flannel, a trifle open at the throat, trimmed with a quantity of soft white lace. "I have just returned to America,” she said, “and have not had time to arrange things,” with a comprehensive sweep of her hand toward a couple of chairs piled high with feminine finery, dresses and cloaks, fans, slippers, boots, everything that goes to make up the toilet of a woman of fashion. “Tell you something about my trip} Weil, you know that when Mme. Patti was here a year ago sho wanted to adopt me and made arrangements for me to join her when she startod home from her American tour. I went to St. Louis to join her, and since then have been with her constantly on her tours to Spain and Portu gal and South America, and afterward with her at Craig-y-Nos, her castle in Wales. The castle—it is so beautiful you can hardly fancy it. “See,” said Carlina, indicating the rooms, “this is the billiard room and this is auntie’s boudoir. The walls are hung with crimson tapestry, and the furniture is covered with crimson velvet. On the chairs and sofas are draped the ribbons, with the names painted on them, you know, that tied the wreaths the famous people in different countries have sent her.’ And on the walls are the phoiographs and autographs that ail the crowned heads in Europe bavegiven. Next to this isher bedroom. Here the walls are hung with pale blue tapestry und the bed is draped in blue and is of rosewood. There are all sorts of silver aud gold toilet articles, and on the desk is a wonderful paper weight, all set with diamonds and rubies and sapphires. Mme. Patti at the castle has n bowl of broth brought to her before she gets up, then she is dressed and spends the morning writing her letters or her memoirs, which she is going to publish. At noon lunch is served in the winter gar den. The bouse is always full of guests." And the little maiden went over to the table and brought a handful of visiting cards, whereon were written the names of many a house that flourishes in Burke’s Peerage and the Almanach de Gotha. “Sometimes, in the evening,” she went on, “auntie would sing to us, hut sue goes to Craig-y-Nos to rest, and she spends tho time wandering about the beautiful moun tains, or pniuting, or embroidering, or sim ply doing nothing, and always she lias with her her little Mexican dog President Diaz gave her.” “Is the roport true La Diva is going to sell the castle J” “Sell it? No, indeed, <he is devoted to it. Why onlv last spring she bought all the mountains surrounding it so no one might spoil her view.” •‘Will you return to your aunt?” “I harillv know,” was the reply. “Auntie wishes me to come and to lie her comuanion, but I shall not go on the stage. When I left sbo bade me bring only such things as I would need for n visit, to New Orleans, so I only brought a few of my dresses." By and by she brought out, half shyly, a jewel case where almost every article, dia monds and sapphires, and rubies, und pearl, were gifts lroiii the famous songstress. .She took up a strand of pearls as big as peas. "This,” she said, "was the first necklace ever given rfiy aunt, and sue gave it to me. And this,” taking up a portbonneur brace let of twisted gold, “she wore this a long time herself, and gave it to me for luck. The others are lovelv? Oh, of course, but they were bought. These were hers.” And little Carlina wound round and round her wrist tho string of pearls that hud clasped La Diva’s throat when men had only begun to realize that she was the queen of song. Carlina Patti, living here with her mother, is the daughter of the late Carlo Patti, well known as an orchestra leader. Heaven has not given her the voice with which her father’s distinguished sisters are gifted, but it has given her a most generous aunt who will see that she is well educated and lacks nothing this very charming young girl may need.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1888, SOLDIERS WHO STUDY. Col. Bigelow Tells How War la Learned From sSooks as Well as on the Field. Prom the WashinQton Star. As stated in the Star, Col. Bigelow, ad jutant-general of the district national guard, delivered before the officers of the national guard at headquarters re cently, the first of a course of lectures on the “Art and Science of War.” The pur pose of the lectures, as Col. Bigelow an nounced, is firs', to teaca his hearers their duties as officers; and second,to interest them in the business of war. While admitting that ail offl er cannot; become perfectly accom plished in those duties except through ex perience, he maintained that war could not be learned w.thout study. “It is,” he said, “a great mistake in inquiring into the secret of military success during our late war to consider our officers as divided into two classes—the one regularly trained, the other altogether without trainiug—aud to compare the success of these two classes with each other. The latter class should be divided into those individuals that could train themselves and those that could not. We would then have three classes of officers to consider—the ready-trained, the self trained, the un trained” Assuming such a subdivision to bo made, I venture to say that the great names among our volunteer generals will be found in the second class, and that in the third, among the creatures of ins; i ration and luck aud political influ ence, not a single name of good military reputation will be found. TUB MOST BRILLIANT SUCCESS. “The most brilliaut success, if not the highest order of military fame, is attained only by means of inventions, improvements, and innovations, which for a time at least, are the monopoly of their auihor. The e advantages, it is needless to say, can hardly be attained without study, but they have teen attained without previ ius experience. No campaign of Napoleon’s was more brill iant than that upon which he entered at th age of 26, flesh from his preparatory studies and researches at the Fi eneb war department without ever having com manded a brigade, a division, or an army, and Napoleon laid it down ns a special rule that professional stu iy in some form is the first condition of practical success. Well ington, at the close of bis last great cam paign, confessed to a junior staff officer his personal obligation to daily study. Mar shal Turenne, the greatest of h is- great soldiers of the age of Louis XIV, thought that the art of war wap learned more from books than upon battle fields, and his gr at talents were the fruit of tue dee est study. The Archduke Charles, who first showed the generals of Europe that Napoleon could be beaten, formed his reputation as astrate gist uuon emergi g from bis study, where he had spent many months pursuing the theory of war, having previously served ill three campaigns. “The great English art critic' John Rus kin, whose opinion on this subject, though not that of an expert deserves at lea-t our respectful notice as that of a close observer and lofty thinker, in an address delivered to the Woolwich cadets used these words, so admirably adapted to impress his boyish audience; “ ‘No good soldier in his old age was ever careless or indolent in his youth. Mary a giddy and thoughtless boy has become a good bishop, or a good lawyer, or a good merchant; hut no such an one over became a good general. There is no form of science wnich a soldier may not at some time or other find bearing on the business of life or death. Never waste an instant’s time, therefore; the sin of idleness Is a thousand fold greater in you than in other youths, for the fates of tnoso who will one day be under your command hang upon your knowledge; lost moments now will be lost lives then, and every instant which you carelessly take for play you buy with blood.’ “To be sure, Von Moltke has said that great generals, like poets, are born, not made; but he has been himself an indefat igable studaat, aud is reputed to be a walking military cyclop,t lia. Gen. Sher man in his article on the grind strategy of the war between the states uses these words: ‘There may be such men as born generals, but I have never enc <untered them, and doubt the wisdom of trusting to their turn ing up in an emergency.’ SCIENCE, ART OR TRADE} “It was Frederick the Great who said that war is a science for superior men. an art for ordinary men and a trade for ignorant men. I trust, gentlemen, that accepting this dictum as correct, you are resolved that to you it shall boa science. As such it will raise your minds above the narrowing de tails of drill aud save you from becoming a martinet; it will guard you in time of peace against the vices and the follies of a falsa military ideal; in time of war it will assist your higher nature to resist the baneful influences of the soldier’s rough life and horrible work, and if it does not secure to you all the recognition and reward nidi you may think you deserve, it can hardly fail to win for you the houorable esteem of your immediate superior and brother officers, aud what is more to bo prized than that, the loyal affection and fearless devo tion of your men.” The Wolf Driven from the Door. Prom the Macon ( Ua .) Telegraph. When Officer Garfield was on his way to the union depot yesterday morning at 5 o’clock, and when walking briskly along H . zel street, he beard a woman’s screams so shrill and piercing that they almost froze the marrow in his bones. He is not only a good officer, but one of the kindest-hearted men in the world, and no woman can sound the distress alarm In his bearing. The screams prooeede 1 apparently from Mrs. Cave’s cluster of houses, in rear of the factory, in what is known os the tis'i-pond settlement. To that locality he hurried, and at every step the screams grew louder. Visions of murdered women and chil Iron floated upon the murky moving air as he went along, aud a chilling se;isa .ion began to creep over his heart. He found several inmates of the houses getting out, and they directed him to one of the houses near the alley that divides the settlement. Finally he reuehe 1 the alley panting and blowing, and there on the ground attired in her night clothes and on her knees was a nogro woman sreeiuning at the top of her voice. Tho officer stopped her mouth and asked her what was the matter. She said she was happy over the fact that the wolf that bad made life a burden for so long a time had at lust lieen taken from her. For year* she had been the slave of a wolf with claws as long as your arm; that day after day it had hold her in tight embrace, and • with those long, cruel cla vs had cut into her flesh to the very Ixnie. Now he was gone. Harrison got elected and sent 1,000 people with torches and bells and lots of fuss to tier bouse and took tie wolf away and shot him. When she awoke yesterday morning to find that the wolf was not there to faston his sharp claws into her flesh she was so happy that she wanted to pray, aud the house wasn’t big enough for a prayer that was full of gratitude, and consequently she went out doors. The officer left her with the opinion that the woman was either a fit subject for tl o asylum or the fool-killer, he did not know which. Ringing Noises.
