On tho vessel, young Astor had mado tho
acquaintance of a German, who a few years
beforo had emigrated to Amorica, and had
mado considerable monoy in trading furs.
iVttor became Interested, learned all ho
could pertaining to the trade, and resolved
to engage in it. His first thing to do on ar
riving in New York was to find employment
in a fur-dealing house, and thoroughly mas

dollars a week and his board. Hero ho be
gan to amass new knowledge about furs, and
tho habits and retreats of fur-bearing ani
mals, tiuestloning all who camo iu with
skins to sell, as many of tho hunters did in
no only staid with his omploycr until ho
had mastered tho busiuesj, and then began
for himself. Ho had during this time, how-
ovor, mado ono voyago up tlio Hudson, and
across tho unsettled country to Lakes Oeorgo
and Ghamplain, and finally to Montreal,
where ho proved more than a match for tho
shrewd Indians, and brought back a repu
tation for "driving a hard bargain," which
ho always retained.
In 17S6, in a small storo on Water street,
Mr. Aetor's first ontranco into business took
place. His storo was furnished with a few
toys and notions which would provo attract-
vo to Indian eyes, and there ho began
"dickering" for skin?. His ontiro capital
consisted of only a few hundred dollars,

A laughable incident occurred on her ar
rival at Canton, She had touched at tho
Sandwich Islands to tako in fresh water and
provisions, where tho captain took aboard a
largo stock of firewood. Tho firewood was
noticed by a mandarin at Canton tho moment
ho came aboard and ho inquired
"What ts tho price of that?"
Tlio captain smiled to himself at what ho
thought an absurd quettion, but finallyVaid :
"What will you givoV"
Oh, I guess it isvorth fivo hundred dol
lars a ton."
Every splinter of it was sold at that price.
It was sandalwood.
Tho traffic in sandalwood was monopo
lizod by Mr. Astor for nbout seventeen years,
no other concern In England or the United
States knowing the secret. Nor was It finally
discovered till n shrewd ship owner of I!os-
ton detailed a ship to follow ono of Mr. As
tor's and observe every event of the voyage.
In 1830, Mr. Astor began to withdraw a
little from active business, and then took the
first steps toward building tho hotel which

Mr. Astor was a peculiar man, and in

So out from beneath tho parental roof
