Commodoro Vanderbilt, at the ape of 80, was the greatest railroad auto crat this country has known. Nowa days railroad "ownership is a compli cated affair; Vanderbilt made it a one man affair. " He managed his properties, spent many millions In (heir reconstruction, ond manipulated their securities with absolute independence of all .minor ity stockholders. That the public had any legitimate" concern with his rail roads would have struck the commo dore as absurd. Once. ut;on the wit ness stand, ho repeatedly replied: "None of your business," to a regular ly authorized inquisitor who was .' at tempting to get certain first-hand in formation concerning the Central's af fairs. Before he obtained control of the Central its official reports were fairly complete; afterward thy did not furnish the most rudimentary In formation. He had tho utmost con temp for the law and its representa tives. "Law!" he once roared, 'Jwh.at do I care about the law? Hain't I got the power?" Once observing that a Central director had not voted for a certain proposition .which had been under consideration he asked the rea son why. "Don't you know, commo dore," his friend replied, "that each and every one of those transactions Is absolutely forbidden by the statutes of the state of New York?" ."My God!

David Garrick was the part best loved by the lato E. A. Sothern, and concerning his acting in this play an amusing story is told. lie was ac corded a "benefit" one night, and se lected "David Garrick." In th!a com edy, it will be remembered, Garrick feigns drunkenness, and In the drawing-room at Ada Ingot's he disgusts the guests at the tea. table, and plays havoc with the tea service. Just be fore this scene It was discovered that the stage manager had forgotten the necefs:ry crockery, and a messenger was dl?ratcbed to a neighboring house to borrow some teacups, etc. The worthy lady applied to had heard of the fame of the great actor, and, anx ious to display her treasure, sent back her best china tea service, a family heirloom of great value. That night Sothern was playing with unusual en ergy, and very soon the precious por cebin was smashe.1 In fragments and ratfercd r.bmit the slage.

Purchaser of Old Material Fcund Really Good Investment. John Roberts of Watkins, Schuyler county, a well driller, recently pur chased of Angelo Dupreo, a junk deal er, an old pump for ten cents. It was apparently of no value, b'U he thought there might be some parts that he could use in 1.I-; business. When Mr. Roberts and hia assistant took the pump to one of the wells they were drilling and started breaking it up, they were greatly surprised to see i;old coins drop out of the holes they made. They at once finished the job, and found $1,000, neaily all In $20 gold pieces. Whom tho pump belonged to at the tine the money was hidden, or how lornr it had been there, is a mystery. The la est date of one of the coins was 1ESS. Mr. Roberts at once deposited his find in the Farm ers' and Merchants' bank at Watkins. lie Is willing to surrender the find to anyone who can .prove ownership, but no claimant has jet appeared. The junk man v. ill mako a memorandum to examine the inside of every old pump before disposing of it at any price. Utica (N. Y.) Press. An Unsavory Charity.

Benefit cf Gymnastics to Golfers. On the subject of gymnastics and golf ('apt. HutchlFon, who holds a gymr.astJc, appointment In the Cold stream Onafds. reports: "While act ually going through five hours' daily work in the gymnasium I found that tho heavy work was certainly detri mental to golf. Hut I think that it eventually pioved of the greatest as sistance, us it rtnngMicned the mus cles of the wrist and forearm, which play such an Important part In all golfing frjroke. I found It necessary to r hoi ten my swing a little, and took to the overlapping or Vardon grip, two changes that ceitainly improvod my game." London Standard. Disciplinary Measure Adopted by Woman of Sense. "Above my desk," said the woman who does not lie about her age, "I icep an uncomplimentary photograph of myself. I keep it-there as a dis ciplinary measure It prevents frivol' lty. My present photographic mon itor makes me look about 70 years )ld. I am not 70, but I am more than half that age, and I look every day .if my actual years. Rut I don't feel that old. Gay and giddy exploits still lttruct me. Pleasures, diversions, flirt it ions that for a young girl are' per 'ectly legitimate, appeal to me, also, yet if I should rush into those gay cties as a girl does my behavior would be characterized as foolishness. Rvc-ry day I hear the actions of wom en younger looking than myself so de scribed. "'Just look at that old thing.' the critics say. 'Doesn't she act idiotic?' "Then I come home and study this ' hc tograph. That destroys whatever nelination I may have had to behave like a lG-year-old.

There Is a singular story In con nection with a coin of the third Napo eon. While Louis Napoleon was rince president of France, Just leforo he made himself emperor, a !ecreo was Issued ordering a flvo-franc leco to bo coined bearing his 'mage. The dies were made, and one coin was struck off as a sample and sent o the prince president for his ap proval. Rut some time passed before ie examined it. When at last he gave t his attention he was annoyed to find hat he had been represented on the coin with a love lock, or hooked lock f hair on the temple, which he act ually did wear at lhat period, but Thich he thought unsuitable to so dig nified and permanent a reprcsenta- ion of himself as an effigy on a coin. The prince president sent for the Urector of the mint and ordered him to remove the love lock. Then he found that his silence with regard to the piece had been taken for approval, nnd that the stamping of the coins had begun. Thejyork was Btopped and the imago deprived of its undignified lock. Rut the 23 coins that had al ready been struck off were not de stroyed and are now regarded as of great value. The Public Eye. In a little more we came to an open st ace, very thronged. "The Public Eye!" shouted the megaphone man of our party. There were some curious people within the space, but even more curi ous were those Just outside. Of these latter we though! certain women especially Interesting they were bually neglecting their families In order to get into the Public Eye. A pathos attached to another group of women who had been in the Public Eye and could never be happy out of it, though they couldn't in the least tell why. Positively funny were a few men who kept trying, by a variety of droll .devices, to break Into the Public Eye. "Vice-presidential candidates!" our megaphone man explained. Puck. Three Sabbaths Every Week. Morocco is a country of many Sab baths. The first three days I spent in Tangier were all Sabbaths. Arriving on a Thursday night the next day was Friday, the Mohammedan Sabbath, which was followed by the Jewish Sabbath the Hebrew element in Tan gier Is considerable and strict in re ligious observance and that in turn by the Christian Sunday. Subsequent comparisons, however, revealed little difference between any days of the week. On tho Mohammedan Sabbath a'black flag is hoisted on the minarets at the prayer of dawn, Instead of the white flag that announces the time of devotions on other days. It re mains up until the middle of the fore noon, by which time everybody is sup posed to have found out what day it is. N. Y. Post The Better Part. A delightful little story is told of Prosper Merimee, the French author. He was once guest at a royal hunt, when hares, pheasants and other game were driven before tho emperor and his followers, and the servants picked up the victims of the sport. Among all the members of the hunt ing party, Prosper Merimee alone had no trophy to display. "How docs this happen?" asked some one. "Where game is so plenty, the mer it of a marksman seems to me to lie in hitting nothing," replied Merimee, with grave courtesy, "so I fired be tween the birds." Youth's Compan ion. Ups ard Downs. "Matrimony has Its ups and downs," remarked the scanty haired benedict. "What's the answer?" queried the confirmed bachelor.

Extreme busyness Is a symptom of deficient vitality; while a faculty for idleness implies a catholic appetite and a strong sense of personal identity. There are dead-alive, hackneyed peo ple about, who are scarcely conscious of living except in the exercise of some conventional occupation. Bring these fellows Into the country or set them aboard ship, and you will see how they pine for their desk or their study. They cannot be Idle. Their nature is not generous enough, and they pass in a sort of coma those hours which are not dedicated to furi ous moiling in the gold mill. When they do not require to go to the office, when they are not hungry and have no mind to drink, the whole breathing world is a blank to them. -This does not appear to me as being success In life. Robert Louis Stevenson. Fled from Hoodoo Cat. Deserted by her crew at the very moment of sailing for the north, the fishing schooner Edrle, due to leave at two o'clock Friday afternoon, still lies at her moorings and all because of a cross-eyed black cat. Friday the crew was making final arrangements to sail, when a yell resounded out of the hold. A sailor burst through the hatch, scrambled over the side and made off before anyone could stop him. While the others were gazing after his retreating form a yowl came from the darkness below and a black cat appeared upon the deck. One look at the stub-tailed, green-eyed feline was enough. Every man of the crew picked up his bundle and silently de parted, nor can the captain by any means lure any of them back on board. San Francisco Chronicle. Melba and the 8lck Child. Mme. Melba once told a pretty story about a sick child who lived on the same floor that she did at the Savoy hotel. Mme. Melba used to practice every now and then, though it may be remarked parenthetically that great singers do not practice half as much as small ones, and the little one ly ing in her cot used to listen to the Australian nightingale with the live liest pleasure. When the little girl got well, and was rnnning about the corridors, she saw Mme.. Melba en tering the room whence had come the music. The child rushed up to Mme. Melba and said: "O, please take me in and let me see the bird that sings so prettily." Deau Broadway, in New York Telcpranh. . Posterity's Awards True.
