George J. Gould, capitalist and rail

City February 6, 1864, the oldest son
of Jay Gould, the eminent financier.
He was educated in private schools
and at an early age began his business
career as a clerk in a banking housf
of which his father was a partner. H;s
active interest in railroad affairs daus
from 1SSS when he became vice pres
ident of the Little Rock & Fort Smith
Railroad company, of which he b?came

Milk on a Stik.
In winter time milk goes to the buy
er in a chunk Instead of a quart, saj
a Glasgow paper. The people In Sibe
ria buy their milk frozen, and for Con
venience It Is allowed to freeze about
a stick, which comes as a handle to
carry It by. The milkman leaves on
chunk or two chunks, as the case maj
be, at the houses of his customers.
The children In Irkutsk. Instead of cry
ing for a drink of milk, cry for a bite
of milk. The people In winter time do
not say, "Be careful not to spill the
milk," but "Be careful not to break
the milk." Broken milk is better than
spilled milk, though, because there Is
an opportunity to save the pieces. A
quart of frozen milk on a stick Is a
very formidable weapon In the hand of
an angry man or boy, a It is possible
to knock a person dowt with It Ir
kutsk people hang their milk on books
Instead of putting it In pans, though,
of course, when warm spring weather
comes oti they have (o use the pans or
pails as the milk begins to melt and
drop down the luxiks.
Wit should be used as a shield for
defense rather than as a sword to
