Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
Every snmmer I lite to ride up to
Irvington and spend a couple of days
with Jay Gould. He treats me well
i while there at his house, and though
nothing is said about it at the time
there la a tacit understanding that I am
to write a piece about him for the papers
when I get home.
It is the pleasantest time always to go
up during the haying season, which be
gins in June and rages with more or
less violence for two days.
L l I. Hi. I . ru
HELPING OOCLD MAKE HAY.
Irvington ia a beautiful little nest of
well to do farmers lite Jay Gould, Cy
Field and such thrifty grangers as Hank
Villard, whose place is a little lower
down tho river at Dobb's ferry. Hank
and Cy Field change workers in haying,
but Jay keeps help enough to put in all
of his grass himself. Sometimes he used
to help Bob Hoe in haying and Bob
would help him in stacking, but Bince
the death of Mr. Hoe Jay doesn't depend
much on the neighbors.
Mr. Gould's place sits back from the
main road quite a piece and has an eL
to it. As you drive in you see four or
five men with sheep shears trimming oft
the side wliiskors on the mall. He has
quite a good lot of tillable land around
the house and he has a conservatory
abont the size of the Paris exposition.
In this he grows quite a quantity of rare
exotics, such as four o'clocks, marigolds,
bachelor's buttons, "sturshons," morn
ing glories and Johnny-jump-ups (or
Johnny-jumps-up, rather). Mr. Gould is
a great floraculturist and raises his own
seeds rather than trust to the gaudy but
prevaricating catalogue of the profes
Across the main road from the house
is the hay lot It covers about five and
three-fourths acres, perhaps, and so with
twenty-seven men, all willing to pitch
right in with enthusiasm, Mr. Gould is
able to get Ids having out of the way in
time to give him a week in town. This
year he was drawn on the jury in
New York just as he was going into the
hay field. For quite a while he didn't
know whether to go down and make sure
'of his little old $2 a day or stick to the
having and save the crop; but finally he
threw his scythe over his shoulder and
said, "Come on, boys. They can get
other jurymen, but you would be a long
while getting another man to take my
place in the hayfield."
Later I saw by the paper that Mr.
Gould was fined $100 for non-appearance
when his name was called.
"Is it tmn," I asked him yesterday at
an equestrian lunch counter, "that the
judge fined you $100 for contempt?"
"Yes," said Mr. Gould, removing a
fillet of Wienerwurst from his whiskers
and speaking in deep, interest bearing
notes, "I was found $100 by the judge
as you say, but I proved by one of my
hired hands that I was a member of the
Tarry town Hook and Ladder company,
and so the judge remitted the fine."
On a bright June morning, when the
wood bird wakes the echoes along the
Hudson and the wren and the thrush
come down to bathe their little beaks in
the beautiful brook which sings along
past the door of Washington Irving'
quaint and queer old home, the quick
ear catches the sound of voices out be
hind Mr. Gould's barn. Following this
sound one comes to a merry group of
"hands" clustered about a large grind
stone which has bacon rinds under the
bearings. A small boy, reeking with
perspiration, is turning the stone, while
Mr. Gould with an old scythe may
be seen riding on the top of it. There
are other men about who could turn the
grindstone easier than the small boy who
is turning it, but no one is hopeful
enough to turn a grindstone but a boy.
It discourages a man, so it ia customary
to secure a boy to do this heart breaking
job, and generally & boy who is abont to
go fishing is selected. He grinds on hour
after hour, while his worms are baking
in the sun and his heart is slowly dying
in his little bosom.
Later on the merry work hands go
joyously afield. A jug containing spring
water and a small straddle bug is taken
to the lot and concealed under a swath
of green grass. Mr. Gould, wearing a
pair of brown linen trousers and bine
Wammus, together with a chip hat,
rolls up his sleeves so as to reveal the
raven pin feathers now slowly turning
to iron gray which adorn his brawny
arms. He then stands his scythe and
swath up where he can get at it, and
polling a large, four pound whetstone
from his pistol pocket proceeds to put a
keen wire edge on his weapon.
It is quite interesting to Mr. Gould
and twenty-seven willing husbandmen
turn loose on a little bunch of grass
and wipe it out in two days. The hay
is a mixture of red top, timothy and red
clover, with ornamental hornets'" nests
made of papier mache in the fence cor
In his conversation Mr. Gould uses a
good many railroad terms of course, to
gether with his farm slang, and most of
his orders are given t a bald headed
Spaniard with an ecrulaatron of Ma
renta whiskers, whose name is Terrance
"Terrance,'' said Mr. Gould the other
morning, as he swung the jug over hia
arm and took a drink, "I do not know
but it would be cheaper next season to
fix up the old mower. You see, it costs
me $108 now to mow this grass. Then,
new scythes and swaths each year, $54
more; $3 for whetstones, $8 for orna
mental hornets' nests, and say $55 for
board of hands. That is $328, or $38 per
acre, say $40 per ton for our grass, and
last year "the stock would not eat it.
Now, the mower only needs new coun
tersunk washers on the reverse shaft
bearing, new tender frame center pins,
new oil cups on waist bearer knees and
new hinge on whistle shaft arm. Am I
'"Dade you air, Muster Gool."
"Well, that will not cost over $33 or
$40, and will give all the mowing hands
two days which they sorely need for
rest. My coachman- could drive Ee
mower, I think, and the handa could
rest or prune the sheeD."
"Yes, we laundry the shape on the
15th, and we could shear them on the
16th and 17th, Tm thinkin ; and, Muster
Grool, ye should get another shape to
associate wid the wan ye have or itH be
lonesome and die wid the augwe, as ye
"All right, Terrance; and I wish you
would see what repairs the hay rake
needs. Then you can couple onto it
and take it to the machine Bhop. My
Idea is that it only needs new crosshead
babbiting, water gauge ferrules, pet cock
tod handles, steam chest gland bushing
and goose neck ring eyes."
It is said that much of the hard
earned money which Mr. Gould
gets every month for his railroading
is spent on his farm at Irving-
ton. He hasn't so much ground as Cy
Field has, but it is nnder a higher state
of cultivation. Mr. Gould likes to en
courage crops, whilst Mr. Field prefer
to see his grounds grow up kind of wild,
as they do in England. Jay has a pecul
iar weakness. It is for having real hor
nets on his country Beat. Ho says ho
thinks it promotes activity, and induces
one to make gigantic strides toward
Mr. Field has quite a lodge or toll gate
at the entranco to his grounds, where
the lodge keeper's wife hangs out her
clean clothes on Monday morning to
scare tho hor3es of the gentry.
Mr. Gould goes up at about 4 o'clock
on the New York Central road, riding
on an annual pass, and it is very rare
that he is recognized by anybody. Quite
often a large railroad hog occupies the
seat with Mr. Gould, and almost squats
the life out of the man who has squeezed
other peoplo so much all his life. Mr.
Gould stands it like a little man, how
ever, and rarely squeals.
The great financier seems quite old
this summer, but he says ho is looking
forward with hope to a bright immor
tality, ne said that he was glad to see
me, for he wanted to tell mo about a
kind act which he did a year ago in
secret, hoping that it would get into the
papers before this, but it had not. He
said that other folks couid do kind acts
in secret somehow, and in forty-eight
hours it would be in the papers, but he
never conld do it.
HORNETS AT THE COOTRY SEAT.
He then gave me a roll of soiled manu
script in his own well known hand,
which had evidently been returned by a
good many editors during the past year,
as it had certain blue marks of disap
proval all over tho back. It read as fol
lows: "As the cold weather set in this year
Mr. Gould feegan to do his butchering at
Irvington. He generally kills three beef
creatures and nine shotes in the fall
with his own hand. He begins early in
the morning to heat the water for scald
ing his hogs, and by snndown he is all
through, and ready to cut np the meat as
soon as it cools off.
"Yesterday was a gala day for Dobhs
Ferry, Irvington and Tarrytown, for
Mr. Gould gave out word in the morn
ing to all the neighbors' boys that they
would be welcome at the killing, and
could help thomselves to their choice of
the various internal organs of the ani
mals killed. Many poor people got their
winter's tripe in this way, and as far
even as Yonkers and Nyack people were
supplied with sausage wrappers free.
"It was a beautiful scene, in the midst
of which Mr. Gould might have been
seen cheerily skipping about, and ever
and anon opening up a fresh creature.
It was an occasion which will be long
remembered by the young peoplo of
Irvington, and fully illustrates the gen
erosity and innate goodness of Mr. Gould.
We trust that he may live long to give
yet more delights and other such things
to the young of the country."
I hope that the editor of this paper
will see his way clear to print the in
closed, for it will not in any way com
promise the paper, and I know it will do
Mr. Gould much good.
P. S. Mr. Gould would like two ex
tra copies of the paper also. B. N.
Deafness Can't t Curad
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous liniDg of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken oat and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free.

Frank Wormley and James Forber. of
Moline, went to Hampton Sunday for a
spree, and they found i: cost them con
siderable before they got through.- The
Republican of last evening says:
It seems that some tine ago Mr. Worm
ley went to Hampton to a picnic and got
into trouble, though we learn that he did
not do any considerable amount of dam
age. But the constable of Hampton,
Charles Peterson, had his eye on him and
firmly resolved in bis ovn mind to arrest

Wormley and Forber yesterday after
noon decided on a cool drive to liana p
ton. Forber had beei on a drunk for
several days. As they entered the city
the eagle-like eye of ye constable espied
Wormley. Grabbing Wormley he gave
him a good shaki ig, - and some
advice to behave himself. Theo he
allowed the boys to. depart. When
Wormley and Forber were passing
through the city later, on their homeward
journey, they are said t have given vent
to their feeling with a loud whoop. This
caused tbe guardian of the peace of
Hampton to be much vexed, and he.con
struing it iuto a whoop of defiance,
rushed out and arrested Wormley in a very
rough manner. Forber then had trouble
with tbe constable and is said to have
taken his club from b m and struck tbe
officer in the face" wit i it. The ofllcer
received an ugly gash on the forehead
and also one on the lift cheek. Then
citizens came upon theicene and the men
were overpowered and cast into prison.

Only a few years aco the Rev. Geo.
W. Que presided over Ae destines of the
First Methodist church in this city. He
was one of the most popu'ar preachers
that had ever occupied that pulpit. This
was ant so much on account of eloquence
or any depth of learnir g as from the fact
of bis wholesouled geiiiality. Mr. Gue
always seemed to be io earnest ia what
be said and did and thut assisted much in
bis work. For the last three Tears he
has been in Rock Islaid, and it will be
remembered that but a short time ago he
raised quite a disturbance among tbe liquor-selling
population of that city. Yes
terday he occupied his old pulpit
at the First church, both morn
iDg and evening and the audience room
was filled to overflowing to see and hear

that he was glad to nee so many of his
old friends and acquaintances and that be

The funeral of Mrs. Josephine McNab
ney, who died at Hampton Wednesday
evening, the 9th inst , took place from
the Methodist church in that village Fri
day at 10 o'clock, an 1 was very largely
attended. Josephine (Burk) McNabney
was born at Hessir, Germany, August 1,
1832, and at the age of eight years emi
grated to America with her parents. They
lived awhile at Clnclr nati, Ohio, then on
a farm in Jefferson county, Iowa. In tbe
year 1853 she was utlted in marriage to
Mr. William J. McSabuey, at Moline,
soon after which they took up their res
idecce in Hampton, where their home has
since been. Deceased united with the
Congregational chiwh in 1877, and had
been a strong believer in tbe gospel of
Christ up to her deat'i. She was patient
and seemed glad for tie time to come
when she could be f roe from this world's
sufferings. Rev. G. W. Peregoy was the
officiating minister. Mrs. McNabney lost
her husband in 1874. She was the moth
er of eight children, live of whom survive
