New York Mornlnu Jonrna I.)
The past mouth Ims Is-cii one prolilie of
good fortune for many |ieople in the iiiosl
obscure walks of life. It us<-d to Is- a com
mon thing for indigent noblemen sojourning
111 America leading a miserable existence,
to lie suddenly raised from destitution by
the Inheritance of their patrimony. Hut we
don't hear of many such coxes now. The
wealth is not so widely distributed among
the titled nobility of the old world as it used
to lie. The noble lord, duke, baron or
p.• uce, who sees any chance now of ever in
heriting a competency, generally stays
home and looks after it.
An interesting case was made known on
the 3d of the present month. 11l one of the
numerous concert dives of I'iuciniinti there
was eugaged a Scotchman named Warrald
Mackay. He had started as a waiter in the
front of the house, but displaying some vo
cal ability, he was at last elevated to the
stage, where he got $7 a week for blacken
ing his face, singing songs and telling moss
One evening while he was in the midst of
a "song a messenger boy approached ami
handed him a message. It was from a law
yer, telling liim to call IIJIOII him at once, as
he hod fallen heir to an estate in Scotland
valued at $200,000. He threw liis tamlior
ine in the air, and, forgetting that his face
was blackened with burnt cork, Hew
through the strccls like a madman to the
lawyer's house. l"jsn sving him the law
yer xiid tlu-re must Is- some mistake, as liis
client was described as a white man and a
"Hut ain't I white and a Sotchinau?" ask
ed Mackay, bewildered.
"No, you're black as a coal. Get out of
here," said the lawyer.
Explanations followed, and now the ex
miustrcl is riding around in a carriage, and
selling op wine for his old comrades of the
Perhaps the most romantic case of the
mouth was that of little Catharine Fried
rich, which occurred on the 10th of last
month at Lynn, Mass. Catharine is a child
of thirteen years. She came to this country
from Germany two years before with her
parents. Shortly after their arrival at
Lynn, where her fatln-r had journeyed to
obtain work, he was taken ill and soon
died. The mother and little Catharine were
left |ieuiiiless. The mother was unused to
work, coming of aw ealthy German family
and having always lived in luxury and
plenty. She had married against her |>a
rents' wishes and they had turned her from
their door, and, wishing to leave the scene
of her jierseculion, had persuaded her lius
u-'x.t, u e:ir|M*nter, to emigrate to America,
ltut it was ii.veßSrrry ftnr tm u* k u,
jsirt herrelf and child, and she obtained a
position in one of the mills, and the hard
work sH>n kilh-d her.
Poor little Catharine was left alone iu the
world. She was taken care of for awhile
by some of the mother's fellow workwo
The |H*>r child pined under the affiiction,
and ap|x-ared to Is: most miserable, the,
bright smile having gone from her face.
At List she, too, was taken sick, ami hover
ed at the ]K>int of death. While iu tiiis
state a letter was brought to her mistress
w liich was addressed to her dead mother.
The letter was opened ami found to contain
a letter from the executor of her dead fath
er's estate, the old man having died. The
letter stated her presence w :ui desired inGer
many as soon as |sxsil>le, to arrange for the
reception of her daughter's inheritance,
which iticlmh-d the whole of the old man's
estate. The father had did leaving his en
tire property, valmsl at some $1*10,0(10 to re
vert to little Catharine.
No time was lost u]>on the receipt of this
intelligence by Catharine's employers in
procuring for her the very lwst medical aid,
and the little girl was soou restored to
The executor's letter contained a draft
ii]K>n a Hoston banking house, and w itli the
money obtained upon it the girl was taken
to Germany by a friend and is now iu a
Another strange case was that of Louis
Do Beck, the jsst trader at the Boston navy
yard. He received word two weeks ago
that his grand-aunt, who h;ul been dead
some years, had left au immense property
in Java, valued at 1>2,000,000 guilders, or a-
Ismt $23,230,000. This wealth is to l>e di
vidtd between seventeen cousins, and Louis
IK-Beck is one of the fortunate seventeen.
He is the only one who lives iu this country.
The others live in his native laud, Belgium.
De Beck had known for ten years past of
the prize that was coming to him, and has
waitid patiently for the disbursement of
the money. A short time ago he received
the notice that calls him to Belgium to re
reive his share of the property. He will
sail next month witli his family, and will
return in the winter to settle down to a life
of luxury in Boston.
Perhaps one of the most striking cases of
the month vvas that of Bridget who is twenty
two years old. On the 22d of the month,ac
companird by her niece, Catherine Flanna
gan.she arrived at Castle Garden. She w:is
en route for Montana, where a fortune of
$150,000 was awaiting her. Owing to her
straitem-d circumstances she was forced to
take passage in the steerage and had but
$25 on her arrival. This sum being insuffi
cient to buy two tickets to Montana, Father
Rionlan, the clergyman stationed at Castle
Garden, wrote for instructions to Judge
Winter, the executor of the old woman's
son, who had left her the money. He di
m-ti-d to send the woman on to Washington,
where they would be met by a man who
would accompany tliem to their ilestinata
tion. The next day the old woman and her
niece left Castle Garden on their long jour
ney across the continent.
Although printers often strike a "fat
take," in the natural course of "working
the liook," it is never for an amount suffi
cient to raise tliem at once above the incess
ant pick, pick of their arduous life. The
biggest piece of "sheer grease" ever struck
by any printer since Guttenlierg created the
trade was that which fell to Mr. W. H.
Fitzgerald, formerly of Sterling, Neb. ; hut
tip to last Monday he working on the Little
Itock (Ark.) Gazette. Oh that day, while
lie was bemoaning his lot over a take of
"bull markets," a dapper little lawyer's

pliu-e. Fitzgerald held slug eight on the
tiatdte. Immeilialcly on receipt of the
gissl news he put mi a suh ami has not luvli
near the o.'licc since.
One Tliurslay night, John Anderson a
bartender at (ilouster, N. J., recelv*l a tel
egram informing him that by the death of
ids mother in CojMMilingen three weeks ago,
he falls heir to fIOO,OOO. It only took An
derson ten minutes to resign Ids situation,
p:n'k his few |Missesshins, ami witli a Isutud
jinnji from advernity into prosperity. He
took a train for New York, where lie ein

son liad led u hard existence since his ;nl
vent in America, lie had worked, he says,
at anything lie could get—shoveling snow,
carrying a hod, driving a charcoal wagon,
putting in coal ami its a dog catcher.
Michael Griffin, a eoal-cart driver, was
the happy recipient recently of a leg.uy
which, if not euougli to <leliglit the heart ot
a Vandcrbilt, was sutiieient to bring joy to
the struggling workmati ami his family.
Mike hod ls.*eu working like a home all
day in a Philadelphia coal yard shoveling
and carting coal. As lie was working a
way a man approached and asked if he
knew Michael (iritHu.
"Faith, I do," saitl Mike.
"Where is he ?" asked the man.
"Sure, it's tnesif tiiat's the mail."
"S've come to inform you that you have
ialleii into a fortune."
"Into a fortune, is it ? Well, now, what
d'ye mean ?"
"Your bachelor bother in Clonntcl, Ire

"Holy Mother !" shouted Mike. "Is Pat
dead ? Oh, me jssr brother. No one could
iver a say a wurrud agin 'ira. Well, the
money w ill come in g*sl any way for me

The next day, after having visited the
lawyer and completed the legal arrange
ments, Mike was to work in the coal yard
as usual, like a sensible man. "Sure, it's
not SIO,OOO that'll turn my brain," said he.
A San Francisco newsboy was suddenly
raised from poverty to riches two weeks
ago. While selling papers on the street a
gentleman came to him and said that he
wanted him to accompany him home. He
conducted the l>v to the top tloor of a tene
ment, where a middle-aged man lay ujsui a
eom h, evidently in a dying condition, lie
identified the boy as the one be wished to
make his heir. He died two clays after
ward, leaving some $0,006 to the new stscy.

the dead man's will for placing the money

Tile secret reason of the old man was not rtt
Jean Valeur, a young French artist, who
had Is-en struggling for existence in Toledo,
0., for thne years, was l:ust wen-k lifted
from his misery by inheriting a large for
tune. lie was not, like most of those who
have accpiintl sudden fortunes, taken by
surprise. The young man was an orphan,
and having a widowed uncle who was
childless it was certainly that he would lie
the old man's heir. But being of an inde
pendent, ambitious temperament he was
unwilling to remain in France at the ex
pense of bis uncle. In-sirixg to win fame
and independence he came to America, and
finally settled in Toledo, O. He was a
talented painter, but did not have the qual
ity necessary to success—that of selecting
subjects for his work designed to catch the
popular taste. Hem e Ids pictnißS found lit
tle sale. While returning from an unsuc
cessful tour of the picture dealers trying to
disjsise of one of his pictures, he found a
man waiting outside the door of his lodging
who informed hiiu that his uncle had died,
leaving him 750,000 francs. Wishing to
leave forever the scene of his unrequited l;t
--bor, where he had suffered humiliation and
even hunger, he sailed for France four days
A recent and remarkable case, in that the
legatee, a poor laborer, has been almost de
frauded of his inheritance by a priest, has
recently come to light. Timothy Keating,
a laborer on the streets, received word that
an uncle of his had died in Australia, leav
ing him heir to £'40,000. Keating sent a
friend to Ireland U arrange with a certain
priest for the acquisition of his inheritance.
The priest induced his friend to sign certain
documents, and after the former bad n*-
inaincd in Ireland as long as he couhl afford
lie returned to New York, telling Keating
that the matter was still unsettled. Then
Keating himself raised sufficient money to
take him to Ireland. He saw the priest to
whom he had intrusted his affairs, but
could not get satisfaction from hitn. He al
so discovered that the priest was playing a
game. During the time which had elapsed
between the signing of tho paper by Keat
ing's friend and the visit of Keating to him,
the priest had taken steps to defraud the
rightful heir. He had been in comunica
tion with the executors in Australia, had
sent on pictures of Keating and Keating's
wife and children, and was succeeding so
well in his plot that he had'managed to ob
tain |Mss<>ssion of a part of his inheritance.
Keating returned to New York, and the
matter is now in the hands of a lawyer, who
will visit Ireland and Australia and look
after the laborer's interests.
Where Was the White Horse.
This is bow a gentleman got bis
wife. Wben in a tobacconist's shop, he
asked a girl behind the counter, who
happened to have red hair, if she would
oblige him with a match.
'With pleasure, if you will have a
red headed one,' she promptly replied,
with such a suggestive, demure smile
that eventually the red-beaded match
was handed over.—[Kansas City Sun.

How Treasurer Hyatt Hot the Ilpst of
it Persistent Olllec Seeker.
Etersince the Hon, Janes W.
Hyatt, of Norwsllc, wn* A|<|ointed
Treasurer of tin? United States lie has
had no end of n| plications for posi
tions in his department. Quite a
number of Xrwallc gentlemen have
hinted to him that they wcuH- lie
willing lo remove to Washington, hut
at this writing the station tijeiil has
not reported any great increase m the
Male of tickets for tliut city. During
his recent visit to Nor walk, Treasurer
Hyatt happened to get cmglit alone
with one of the most |>ersistent office
seekers he had yet run across. The
conversation was slowly, but surely,
gelling around to the subject nearest
the applicant's bonrt, when the Treas
urer rather abruptly turned to him
aud said: 'Mr. Brown, how would
you like to go into something new
where there is plenty of money V
Mr. Brown could hardly believe his
senses. His eyes fairly glistened as
he hitched his chair nearer the Treas
urer's and signified bis readiness to go
into enything where there was money.
Mr. Hyatt crossed one leg over the
other, took his glasses trom his nose
and twirled them carelessly around tbe
forefinger ol his right hand, and then
be leaned over toward Mr. Brown
aud said iu a confidential sort of way :
'You ccuie to Washington with me,
'Yes, Mr. Hyatt, I'll go anywhere
'You eome to Washington with
me,' repeated Mr. Hyatt, and I'll lot
you go into tbe Treasury vaults where
millions of dollars are stored.*
•Oh ! ab ! yes, Mr. Hy&tt, good
joke ; mighty good joke, Mr. Hyatt ;
good night, confound you, sir, good
night!' ana the disappointed office j
seeker was gone.
Then Mr. Hyatt turned wearily to I

Handling California Wheat.
In no country in tho world can
wheat be handled as cheaply as in
California. During tho harvest sea
son there is no possibility of rain, and
tbe wheat is put into burlay bugs
and stacked up in the field until the I
farmer is ready to ship. When sent
to San Francisco it lies on the wharf
until a ship is ready to take it on
board. No shelter is needed, and
there are no elevator cbarges.the bags
being placed on board ship just as
they come from the fields. In addt
lion to tbe profit resulting from cheap
handling, the owner has his profits
considerably increased by the gain
in weight made on each voyage to
Liverpool. When the wheat leaves
California it is as dry as tinder, and
in exactly the condition to absorb the
moisture of the sea air ; and, conse
quently, on its arrival in England a
cargo of wheat will be heavier by
many thousand pounds than when it
lett California. Wheat is never ship
ped in bulk, but always in bags, as
when loaded in bulk it is about tbe
most dangerous cargo a ship can car
ry. No matter how lightly it may
be packed at first, it settles consider
ably within a short time, and then it
is very liable to shift. When shifting
takes place a ship is as good as lost,
the change iu the center of gravity
throws ber on ber beam ends, and she
is nearly certain to go to the bottom
in the first moderate gale. Many
ships were lost in this way, and now
the shipment of grain in bulk is pro
hibited by law.—[Globe Democrat.
English Naval Dangers.
The Crown Princess of (it-rmany bos near
ly loot her life twice since coming to Eng- :
land, while ninler Ihe fostering rare of the !
British Navy. Soon after her arrival there,
the royal yacht on which she was traveling
with her htisbuud, the Crown Prince, came
into collision with one of the troop ships,
and escaped only by accident, and not by
good m anagement, from Wing sunk. On
An gust 25, the Crown Princess met with
another naval accident which frightened
her even more than on the occasion of the
previons disaster. While on ber way bark
to the Isle of Wight from a visit to the Roy
al Naval Hospital at Haslar, she was per
suaded to embark on torpedo boat No. 79.
It was intended to show the royal party
some evolutions. In passing at full speed
round the stern of the irouclad the Invinci
ble, which is stationed at Gtiardship, off
Cowes, the helm of the little boat xvas put
banl over to starboard, and then the order
was given to put helm midships. It was
found, however, that the wheel had got
jammed ami conld not be moved,and before
anything could be done, the torpedo boat
dashed into the Invincible at full speed,
striking her amidships. Tbe collision
caused a violent concussion on board the
little craft and twisted her stem almost
double,also straining her bow considerably.
Fortunately, tbe barge of tbe royal yaeht
Victoria and Albert was close by, and the
royal oarty was qnickly transferred there
to. The Crown Princess and suite were
naturally somewhat alarmed,but fortunate
ly escaped without injury —3f. 7. World.

Cause of Dirty Flmter Nails.;
People who t tj nice to scriptural
point nbout the care of their bodies,
wonder houiclim-* dcepniriiiglj bow
it in that their finger nails gel no dirty.
Ther may not hare Iteen out of doors
or engaged in ntty manual occ ipation,
and yet n few houra alter a thorough
cleaning of i heir nails they bars s
hlaek at .vak under the |tointn and tbe
hand brush n.ust bo used again.
They w ill lie surprised to burn that
their hair is tbe cause of this offen
sive collection of dirt. There are few
ficrsong who do not often put their
fingers to their hair to replace a stray
lock, if a woman,or if a man to throw
it back from his forehead or ruo his
fingers through it Each time that
the hand touches the hair soins of the
oil adheres to the fingers and tbe sails,
and this attracts and holds the dirt and
dust whose particles float iu tbe pur*
est atmosphere. Anjbody can prors
this statement by watchiog tbe finger
nails for a day after the hair bee been
shampooed, and noting bow much
longer tbey remain clean than tbey
will two days after the barber has
rubbed all of tbe oil out of the scalp.
His Confidence Betrayed.
This story is told of Cbauneey M.
IVepew. the president of tbe New
York Central railroad, who is a very
brilliant lawyer and orator, and is al
so known as a kind-hearted man :
One day he was risited by a lawyer
whom be had known as a reputable
man, and of whose downfall into the
ranks of mendicants be had not beard.
With tears in bis eyes, the man told
of bis wife's sickness and death, and

He IMdat Count m the Fleeter.
There is a younguian living in Cotumbas,
a good-looking fellow, who h• a awnet
heart out iu the country n few miles, and
be spends two evenings in nvery week m
her society. A few nights ago be stnyv*l to
the usual hour, and as he pissed out the
front door he discovered that it was cloudy
and dork. He did not relish the idea at
walking houie alone through the gloomy
uight, ami hinted n good deal to get mm in
vitation to remain, but it was not forthcom
ing. lint the young man was equal to the
emergency. Going down the steps he art
fully contrived to slip and fell gently to the
ground. Thereupon he qnickly set up a
tremendous groaning. The ruse worked
admirably. Tbe girl screamed and the meu
came and carried the young man tenderly
into the house. Then he was assisted to un
dress ami deposited in the spore room. He
had barely begun to chuckle over the suc
cess of the stratagem when the girl's moth
er put in on appearance, armed with a mus
tard piaster a foot square. This she imme
diately proceeded to clap ou the young
man's shoulders, where he incautiously lo
cated tbe damage to his frame. For two
mortal hoars that woman sot by the bed,
and won not satilled until she beheld a blis
ter an inch deep. The young nana is now
reformed.— Coluatbua CounmL.
The Emperor and the Mechanic.
This anecdote is related of Herr Krupp;
That he was once showing the Emperor
William through his works, when the lat
ter displayed great interest ia the steam
hammer ami was told that the workman in
charge of it, named Ackerman, was so skill
ful that a hand could be placed on the anvil
without fear, ami he would stop the ham
mer within a hair's breadth of it. 'Let as
try it,' uiil the Emperor. *1)01 not with a
human hand—try my watch," ami he laid
it, a splendid specimen of work richly set
with diamomts, on the anvil. Down cams
the immense moss of steel, ami Ackerman,
with his hand on the lever, stopped it just
the sixth of an inch from the watch. When
he went to homl it back the Emperor re
plied, 'No, Ackerman, keep the watch in
memory of an interesting moment.* The
workman, embarrassed, stood with out
stretched hand, not knowing what to do.
Krupp came forward and took the watch,
saving : Til keep it for you if you ore a
front to take it from His Majesty." A few
minutes later they again panned the spot,
and Krupp said : 'Now yon can take the
Emperor's present from my hand,' and
handed Ackerman the watch wrapped up
in a thousand-mark note.

The steamship Anchoria of the Anchor
line, recently met n tornado IM miles from
Sarnly Hook. The wind came ou from the
northeast, and in a very short time there
was a tremendous sen running. The rain
came down in such Hoods that the crew
were scarcely able to stand ou dock. The
lightning poured in streams of a minute's
duration from the c loads to the water,while
globes of bine Home played up and down
the rigging and dancing along the yards,
and leaped from the masts incessantly, ter
rifying passengers and seamen alike. Fur
about two hours the wind Mew at t) r
an hours. Neither lookout nor pilot could
see beyond the ship's rail, because at the
solid sheets of rain and dying elands of
spray in which the ship see- to be walled
up as by a fog. Tbe engines were ran dead
slow, and the ship lay to head to the gp&e.
At the end of two hours the pde broke, and
pleasant weather followed. No - I *—gt
was done by either wind or electricity.
