In 1876 two brotliei'S were engaged in busi
ness in W,binjitoii market, this city, as
wholesale bttcbers. By sobriety and atten
tion to their calling ihoy had prospered and
were well to do, but scarcely to bo termed
wealthy. T lien unknown outside of a limited
circle their name has since becoraer as a
household word throughout the country.
They were t m Dwyer brothera, Philip J. and
Michael, of Brooklyn.
A.'l HUMBLE BEOiy.VI.VO.
Being at the Saratoga rai-es iu 1870 they
made their tlrst investment, tmyiuu at first a
third interest from George long-jtaff in the
black colt Rliadamuiitbus, a son of imported
Leamington and rioted even then as a sprinter.
On tho 17tb of August tie started iu their
nauie for u ourse of $.500, riddeu by Barbee,
ami won tho ruco, a dush of a mile and a fur
long. As they were shrewd and bold
isDecti tutors it is safe to assume that the
brothers pi'iifltud by the victory to a much
grenter ex V 'lit than the mere value of tlie
purse. Dol'orc tin close of the sea sou

starting him ut Joromc Park in October,

other of his four starts, his winnings alto

much Jxr.te:- bargain in buying the S-year-old
colt vigil, who hud two valuable stake en
gageuionts at Baltimore, both of which he
won. Tito first was the Dixio stakes, valued
nt f 0,600, a id the second the Breckinridge,
worth J,3J0 more, lie also won another
race that fi ll, swelling his earnings to $15,
100. Iu purchasing Vigil they thus early
demonstrated the pluck which has since made
them fumc'us, for igil cost, together with
the brother to Bassett, $23,000. They came
high, but t io end justified the expenditure.
Their totai earnings with four horses for
their til's t year on the turf was 17,Wk.
Such wes their unpretentious but auapi
cious begii uiug. With the exception of the
following year, when their winnings fell off
materially, they have steadily mounted the
laddor of success, and since 1S)0 have dom
inated the American turf.
During twelve yean of active campaign
ing they have won upward of $1,000,000 in
stakes, purses, matches and handicaps, a
larger sura than was ever won by any turf

In that time they have headed the list of
winning wuers iu 1SS1, ISSIt, 1880 and

4 Lost Scarab Seeorered au ' no

"Talking about coincidences," said a young
man to a group in a hotel lobby the other
evening, "reminds me of something rather
remarkable- iu that line which happened to
me the other day. You have noticed, per
haps," he continued, "that several Washing
ton young gentlemen wear Egyptian scarabs
as watch charms, similar to this one on my
chain. Well, I met one of these young men
the other day on the avenue, and. in course
of conversation, noticing this little antique,
he said: Do you know I have lost my scarab,
and I am mighty sorry, for it, too. It was a
genuine antique, and I can't replace it 1
thought at first that 1 would recover ibr as I
lost it in the sleeping car coming from New
York to Washington, but all my efforts were
fruitless, and so 1 have given it up. Now
here comes the strange part of it,' " continued
the speaker. "The very next day I stopped
on the avenue to have a moment's chat with
a mutual friend, a well known official at the
capitol. Noticing my charm, he said: "What
u this little triuketr I explained, and he con
tinued, 'Well, do you know, I found one like
that the other day, and 1 thought at first it
was a mystical society badge of some kind,
and slipped it in my pocket and never thought
anything more about it 1 found it under
rather peculiar circumstances. I went to
Now York the other night, and I was the last
passenger to leave tho sleeper iu Jersey City.
I made a hurried toilet, but something hurt
my foot, so that I had to take off my shoe,
and tho little stone dropped out I couldn't
imagine where it came from, and was going
to throw it away, but, noticing the carved
inscription, I changed my mind, and slipped
it in my pocket. "
"I think I know the owner," I said, "and
soon had the loser and tho finder talking
through the telephouo to each other, and the
former was rejoiced to hear of the recovery
of lii.s lost scarab. Now, although they were
well acquainted, nothing would ever have
come of it all if both hadn't noticed my
chr.rm and told of the loss and find.
"Now, that's equal to a coincidence that
knew of several years ago," said the colonel,
"and it was right hero in this hotel office.
hud an appointment one evening to meet an
army captain who had just arrived that
morning from New York. Tie was a pretty
liih liver, and was liable to take a little too
much. lie acknowledged to me that he had
bad what he called a 'jag on' the night be
fore, lie was full before he left New York, 1
and got fuller with some friends before he
turned in on the sleeper. In the morning he
was somewhat unsteady, but dressed hur
riedly and came up town, lie was very busy
during the day, and although be walked a
good deal ho hadn't noticed until dinner
that he had been wearing another fellow's
boots, and they were at least a size too large
for him. Ho had just explained all this to
me in answer to a question as to how he was,
when I saw him look steadily at a gentleman
who had stopped in the middle of the office
to light a cigar. All of a sudden be jumped
up, hurried across, and, slapping the other
man on the shoulder, exclaimed: 'Wiy, B ,
old boy, how are youf I haven't seen you
for ten jears.' It appeared they were old
friends, who had drifted apart in the chang
ing army life. He brought his newly found
friend over and introduced him. In the
course of conversation tho latter said: 'A
funny and rather disagreeable thing hap
pened to mo last night, and I am suffering
from it still. I came over from New York
on the night train. While getting dressed
this morniug 1 called tho porter and said:
'Theso aren't my boots.' 'Dcy is de onlist
ones lef, boss; ail de udder gents is gone an'
dey mus' bo youni.' There was nothing to
be done but wear them. Although too small,
I managed to get them on, and have worn
them all day. They seem to be shrinking
every Lour, though, and hurt like tho deviL"
"It was a study to watch the face of my
friend, the captain. He looked from the
boots to the man's face while he was telling
the story, and when it was finished be ex
claimed: 'Well, Til led d if you aren't
wearing my boots!' Explanations and drinks
were in order." Washington Star.
