John Jacob Astor appears to have in
herited tho quality of thrift from bis'an
cestors. The stories told about him in
tho vicinity of his office at Twenty-sixth
street nnd Broadway are scarcely credi
ble, in view of tho enormous wealth of
the present head of the Astor family in
America. The general idea of a hundred
millionaire is that when he gets shaved
nt n nnblio barber shon he trlves the
barber a tip. Mr. Astor, however, is not
misled by nny false idea of pride
