Mr. Sully pointed to the sea. whose
waves were roaring over the steep
water front of Watch Hill.
"Over there to the left,” he said, "Is
Block Island. To the right Is Montauk

land is the coast of Spain. That breeze
comes direct from there."
"When I was busy in the cotton
market in New’ York," he went on,
“I found there was no place like this

other place does, and when you’re

Immense Revenue Accrues to That

Jules Heuret, a French writer, as
serts that In fashion France Is still
unrivaled. He has carefully investi
gated the state of affairs in Germany.
England. Switzerland, Austria and
northern Italy, and has come to the
conclusion that France stands first in
matters of tnste. Her jewelry designs
and her models of furniture are the
finest in the world, although England
and Germany are selling well In both
these directions, he declares.
From fashion M. Heuret estimates
the revenue of the French at 150,000,-
POO francs. In Paris there are over
12,000 business bouses employing
from one to 100 working girls. For
the whole of France the total of such
establishments reaches 96,000, to
which may be added 15.000 lingerie
firms, 4,000 houses where embroider
esses and menders are employed.
Thus there are 115,000 shops where
sewing is the industry carried on.
More than a million persons earn
their living In this way. 940,000 women
and 75,000 men. To the aggregate of
a million wage-earners by their needle

business on account
of more business
troubles," Mr. Sully
explained, when he
and the reporter
again settled them-
selves to enjoy the sea air on the ver
anda. "Last fall I went to England to
see about some business matters there.
I Intended to spend the winter either
there or out west or in the southern
"But the plans that I had made did
not turn out well and I decided to
spend the winter right here in Watch
Hill. It was the first time that I or
my family had ever stayed here in
the cold weather. But, when I built
the house, I put steam heat into it,
so we were very comfortable. And
right there the idea struck me, not
only to run this place as a boarding
house, but as an all-the-year-round
boarding house."
In that idea something of the orig
inality of the "Dan" Scully who
evolved a "system” and played the
cotton market to a standstill crops
out again. Up to the present time no
body has ever thought of that wind
swept promontory. Watch Hill, as a
place in which to spend the winter.
Yet, having done it once, "Dan" Sully
was amazed at the mildness of the
air and promptly resolved to make
other people besides himself enjoy It.
In fact, he already talks about Watch
Hill as a sort of future Atlantic City
of New England.
"Out there” —again he waved his
hand toward the Atlantic ocean
"only a short way off the coast. Is
the gulf stream. It’s quite near
enough to keep the weather from get
ting too cold here in winter. Yet
everybody who has a house here or
hires one for the warm weather never
stays later than November, and the
hotels close early in September. I’m
going to show people that this is an
all-the-year-round place."
"Are you doing anything besides
running your boarding house?" asked
the reporter.
"Nothing whatever," answered the
ex-cotton king.
Yet this is the man who. an ob
scure Providence cotton broker, sud-
wage earning only for those occupied
in the business; It resolves Itself Into
a revenue of over 114,000.000 francs

Wealth That Aggregates $365,000,000 Is
Intrusted to the Management
of Four Women.
New York state courts have desig
nated Miss Christina Arbuckle, who
is aged seventy-two, as administrator
of the $35.000.000 estate left by her
brother, Mr. John Arbuckle, the "sugar
kind,” who died intestate last March.
This makes four American women
who have the exclusive control over
enormous fortunes, the other being
Mrs. E. H. Harriman, to whom the
late railway magnate bequeathed
$150,000.000; Mrs. Russell Sage, whose
husband left her $80.000.000; and Mrs
Hetty Green, whose own estate is
valued at $100.000.000. These four
womc.i thus have the exclusive man
agement of property of a total value
of $365.000,000.
The newest recruit to the ranks of

denly appeared In Wall street and
began operating In cotton In accord
ance with a "system” that seemed to
be Infallible. This is the man whose
methods completely mystified the
wisest old stagers in the country,
whose profits ran up as high as 1600,-
000 in one coup—the man whose fail
ure. when announced from the ros
trum of the cotton exchange on
March 18, 1904, caused the wildest
panic ever known in the history of
that institution.
The "Dan" Sully who now take*
people through his house and quote*
prices on rooms to them was one*
worth 13,000.000 He lost nearly 12,-
000,000 of it in two minutes. Accord
ing to him, he announced his volun
tary suspension to the superintendent
of the cotton exchange at 1:45 on the
afternoon of that fatal March 18. It
was not read on the floor of the ev
change until two minutes past 2.
“That delay of two minutes cost
me 11.176.000." Sully said once, in tell
ing the story. "If it had been read at
or before 2 o’clock I might have come
out all right."
As it was. when the smoke cleared
from the field where he had met dis
aster, his liabilities totaled up to
something like 13,000,000. At the time
"Dan" Sully said to a reporter:
"Three weeks ago I was worth 13,-
000.000. Now I’m not worth >30."
Such was he who now runs the Sea

upon the glories of Watch Hill and
its many advantages as a boarding
place. Into all his laudations of the
place he puts real enthusiasm; they
would be creditable to the most con
