Morosini.
(lUisoppe P. Morosini, the custodian
of Jay Gould's secrets
dian of the latter's
and the guar*
private papers, is a
great practical joker. If he stuck a pin
in Mr. Gould's chair. Gould did not let
on, but Morosini is no respcctor of
persons in bis fun. Once when there
was a Union l'aciiic meeting at Gould's
oid office, at No. 80 Broadway, Moro
sini found time hanging heavily on bis
bands. At last a happy thought
to llim. lie cut a pile of newspapers
in strips and stuffed the bands of tlio
astute directors' hats with them. When
Sidney Dillon, F. L. Ames, and tho
other gcntlemeu came to put on their
hats, they found them too small. Each
man tried on every hat in the lot, and
confusion and wonderment prevailed
until Morisini t s little pleasantry was
discovered. When Morosini

no tire was built and that the windows
were opened and nailed so that they
could not be closed, lie went out to
see if he could raise so ae money, ami

experiment was a success.
Morosini has a hobby. It is the col
lection of antiques of all kinds, and es
pecially old arms. He has the finest
and most complut« collection of an

Shortly afl«*r 1 * o'clock last night

from the Dclmonico restaurant, on
Seventh street. The boy from tin* ex

Hi W l'n«* Dio»l.
A Now York "tribune ivportcr culled
at the Fifth Avotuus liotel to
physician in who.'«* can* Kdgar A Foe
was when he breathed his la-t. 1 1«*
Dr. John >1. -\ oran, of Falls Church,
Y r a., who was in this city by invitation
to attend tin* e erci-es of the unveiling
of the Po«: memorial and to refute the
tale so long circulated that the poet
«lied from excessive drinking. It
understood that a statement from Foe's
alii uncoil wife and one from the under
taker who buried him corroborate the
doctor's testimony. Dr. Moran said
the reporter:
"1 was the physician in charge
Washington College University hospi
tal for some seven years, from early
1849 until 18ô(5. i was quite young
the time. Mr. Foe was in my charge
when he «lied, and not in an out-of-the
way hospital, as his early biographers
stated. The Washington hospital had
over two hundred beds, it lias been
stated by his lirst biographer, the Rev.
Rufus R. Griswold, and became part
of the accepted public understanding,
that Poe died in a tit of delirium tre
mens. 1 most emphatically declare
the falsehood of this statement. 1 can
establish by living testimony the fact
that Poo did not «lie under the influ
ence of any intoxicant, nor were in
temperate habits the causeof bis death,
as he had not for four years allowed
anything stronger than coffee to pass
his lips. In his younger days lie par
ticipated with those who «{rank, and
at long intervals was overcome, but
his organization was so sensitive that
he could never have become a dram
drinker. That was his own language
to me. Poo was brought to the hospi
tal on Oct. 5, 1849, at 9 a. m. He was
in an unconscious state, but rallied and
became conscious for the greater part
of the sixteen hours that intervened be
fore his death, llis disease was, tech
nically, encephalitis. It is a disease
a part of the brain. His death, how
ever, was the immediate result of ex
haustion and exposure. He had lain
out all night with his face to the hea
vens in an October atmosphere. Wiien
awake he was rational, answered all
questions put to him, and gave in
structions about writing letters, one
being sent to his affianced wife, Mrs.
Sarah E. Shelton. In reply to his in
quiry as to his condition 1 told him
that death was near. He cried out pa
thetically: 'Oh, God, is there no ran
som for the deathless spirit?' and short
ly after died.

Now that General Grant is getting
better bis doctors will be laughed
the world over. But the laugh is fool
ish, for no doctor of any merit pre
tends to know all about diseases. He
simply claims to know something, and
admits cheerfully that the known
small compared with the unknown.
The Garfield ease was a bad oue bo
cause, there, the surgeons made
weak, imperfect diagnosis, and failed
to learn what was the course and place
of the bullet. They mistook the en
tire cavity of the bowels for the open
ing made by the ball. And yet some
doctors resemble some lawyers, some
preachers, some farmers, and some
people in all pursuits in the matter
having no sense. Good sense is not
universal in any profession. The den
tist who recently killed a lady
chloroform would not have been bril
liant in any profession which implied
trust. As a railway engineer, as
switchman, as a sea captain, as a sen
tinel, as a nurse by a sick-bed, as
compounding druggist, as the keeper
of a lighthouse, lie would have been
great a failure as he has suddenly be
come as a medico-dentist. Careless
