Til P. STORY OF 1 11 R MAN OF MARK.
Hut who is Asa Packer ?
A poor carpenter from Connecticut,
leaving his native State in pursuit of
employment; a busy, bustling, pros
perous merchant in the wilds of Penn
sylvania; an enterprising, pushing,
ndventufous operator in new schemes
for tho duvcliipiiiciil of his adopted
Slato; a gnat and successful coal
miner; a founder of banks ; a railroad
king; a man 'of untold wealth, the
result of holiest toil, prudent living,
and a sngacily niisirrpnsscd.
Such is Asm Packer.
A MAN OF THK I'Fnl'l.r.
"Mr. Packer, will you t ide down T"
said the omnibus driver, reining up to
tho sidewalk, as he noticed the great
man with his satchel headed toward

wss the reply.
"Better hurry, then," said the dri
ver ; "time's iu st up."
"Oh, I'll catch tho train j there's ton

snid the pompous country squire, rush

the great innn.
"Ob, no; I cjn enrry it. It nin'l

"Well, pood lurk irt von."
"Judge Parker," siihf I, iiliiindonihe

lavorablo opportunity, "I have made
a diligent search for yon, and run a
long chase after you, but I do not see
as 1 can run you down in priVnto.
Here Is a nolo that will both introduce
mo nnd explain iny visit." And I
handed tlio great man a letter Willi
which I bad been favored by a per
sonnl friend cf the man of mark.
Tho J tide by bo is called "Judgo"
I do not know read tho letter care
fully. He pondered over it. Ilestttd

Finally he seemed to be satisfied w ith
it, and turning a si..iling face upon
me. he said :
1 am in sntnctliing of a hurry to
cnlch tlic 12 o'clock train. It lack
ten minute of the limo now. If yon
will walk to the depot with me, we
can talk on tho way."
Now, the distance from tho centre
of tho town of Munch Chunk to the
depot of the Lchiith Valley road is not
very frvnt. nor i ten minutes much
time in which to discus the pre',
political questions of '.lie day. Put as
"half a loaf is b.-tlrr than no bread,''
I accepted the proposition with thanks,

Judge Parker Por a number of

tho company with which I am con-
nected have assumed un extent and
impiittanco to monopolise neatly my
cntiro time and attention, forbidding
mo the opportunity to devoto to cur

endow tho Lehigh University, was
contributed of the bonds of the Lehigh

state me tho fuels in the case?
Judge Packer That statement ha
no foundation in truth. The Lehigh
Valley Railroad Company had noth
ing whatever to do with the gift, or
wirt my subsequent visit to Europe,
nor was the gift made in tsilrosd
bonds. It was wholly a personal and
cash transaction, but one from which
1 never expected any notoriety or
praise, nor do I now claim any credit
for the act. I was ahout stariimr for
Kurope for my health, and lest home

perfected tho transaction on the eve
