THE ORIENT TRANSPLANTED.
An Entsrprlslna- Hotel Proprietor Gives
Els Gues'a a Taate of Eastern Luxury.
A new idea In the way of hotel luxury
has just been introduced by E. N. Anable,
of the Westminster, Sixteenth street and
Irving place. New York. It consists of a
beautiful little smoking room furnished In
true oriental fashion, to which the guests
of both sexes repair to sip tiieir after din
ner coffee or liquers, thns permitting the
inveterate smoker to enjoy the company
of his fair companion while indulging in a
post-prandial cigar or cigarette. About
this inviting little salon there hovers all
the languorous charm of the Orient The
sensuous enjoyment of the hour, the per
fume of the cigar, the aroma of the coffee,
are increased by the subdued harmony
and richness of the surrounding!. The
room is softly lighted by tiny lectrio
globes, whose red silk shades suffuse it
with a warm, roseate glow which blends
harmoniously with the rich Turkish drap
eries and exquisite colorings ot the soft
cushioned divaus and luxurious arm
chairs. Low tables carved in Egyptian
pattern are scattered about, holding
match boxes and ash trays of polished
brass. At the farther end of the room
small standards supporting candles, whoso
soft light shimmers through scarlet silk
shades, are half hidden among palm trees,
giving a graceful finish to the artistic
The innovation has meet with the en
thusiastic approval ot the guests of the

ment is the gathering plsce of all who are
socially inclined, and the scenes presented
are gay and charming to a degree, and
unlike anything found in any other hotel
in New York.

Of Primrose and West's minstrel per
formance, which will be seen at the Aca
demy of Music tonight, the Beading
Herald says: "The good-looking colored
people, arranged in two rows of chairs,
opened the entertainment with their own
orchestra. Tichnor, Dixou, Weathers,
Hunn and the Knickerbocker quartet were
all clever, and the scene of the 'Old Ken
tucky Home' was pathetic. The transfor
mation was a magnificent picture, show
ing the entire organization arranged in
tiers from the footlights to the top draper
ies of the stage, and handsamely attired.
Professor Carmichael's orchestra played
exquisitely. W. H. Wlndom, the remark
able alto, sang with much feeling. Harry
U. Castle was also fine. Jimmy Wall, Lew
Sully and Johnny Whalen were funny
without an effort. George H. Primrose
made numerous original catchy re
mark, was in good voice and
dauced with as much ease, grace and ef
fect as he did 20 years ago. In fact, be
was better than ever before. An exbuber
ance of humor pervaded George Wilson
from his big toe to the top of his head and
be made a great bit. The most accom
plished and distinct lnterlooutor in the
profession is William H. West. Thomas
E. Glynn touched the strings of the banjo
artistically. Howe, Wall and McLeod are
unequalled as icstrumeutal musicians, and
their humorous incidentals were extreme
ly funny. On triple bars Uice and Elmer
showed wonderful agility and caused
roar of laughter with some ludicrous ef
forts. An old time sketch ot negro life
gave the colored people a chance to show
all kinds of dancing, which thev did as
only that claim can do it. A troupe of
Arabs, in tumbling and balancing, con
cluded the great performance, which is, In

above another the East Side theater goer
approves it is to see virtue triumphant
and villany squelched. And so it was last
night when the heavy man, 'Squire Man

was called before the curtain, the actor
who played the part was received with a
shower of hisses by the godson high in the
gallery; and then when Con Reilly, the
rolicklng young Irish gardener, full of the
milk of human kindness, was called forth
he was cheered loudly."

ABOUT WELL KNOWN PERSONS.
The golden wedding of Captain George
W. fiimpson and Louise Harris Simpson, of
nantiooke, was celebrated, at tbat place
Saturday. The affair was attended by
twenty-one grandchildren, one great
grandchild, four sons and four daughters,
a number ot whom live in this city.
Captain and Mrs. Simpson are 73 and 67
years of age respectively . Both were born
in Mauoh Chunk, where they were mar
ried, and later removed to their present
place of residence. Of the ten children
born to them eight are living and all are
married exotpt John, who lives with his
parents; the others are: William T., of
Scranton; Harry, of Peckvllle; George, of
macticoke; Mrs. mma uobsrts,of Wilkes
Barre; Mrs. Mahalla Davenport and Mrs.
Anna Detweilsr, of Scranton; Mrs. Laura
Good, of Sugar Notch. The great-grandchild
is Louise Armbrust, granddaughter
of Chief of Police Simpson, of this city.
Aside from tbe immediate descendants
the anniversary was attended by numer
ous relatives who contributed toward the
large family which enjoyed a sumptuous
dinner at 3.30 o'clock and paassdtheday
in pleasant reminiscences and impromptu
vocal and instrumental musical entertain
ment. Captain Simpson received his military
title in tbe Civil war, during which he
was confined for eighteen months in Libby
prison. Both he and Mrs. Simpson are in
excellent health and apparently have many
years of happiness in prospect.
That nature has dealt kindly with tbe
Atherton family of which Dolph B. Ather
ton, secretary of the board ot trade, is a
member, was Illustrated yesterday when
four generations sat for their pictures in
the studio of a well-known photographer.
Four living generations are not unusual,
bin the Atherton case is peculiar and in
teresting from tbe fact that all are males
and each is a father or a son, no uncles
being included in the quartette. Another
striking feature is tbat each has lived for
a term of years in Scranton and all but
one were born here.
Jonathan A. Atherton, as be appeared
with three of bis descendants about him,
looked hale and hearty for a man born
eighty-four years ago (1810) on a farm
where tbe West Side of the present city is
located. During his boyhood what is now
Scranton was known as Slocum Hollow,
on a grassy knoll of several hundred
acres, surrounded by a cordon of swamp
laud, the whole nestling in an extensive for
est. He had been brought here from New
England when a child, and when in after
years he removed with his family to a
farm near Montrose, he sold bis Hcranton
land to- Dr. B. H, Tbroop for a nominal
sum. The property was later discovered
to contain large deposits of coal.
Jeremiah L., sou of Jonathan, was born
87 years ago on the West Side farm and
has since re.ided iu the city, excepting his
residence ou a farm adjoining his father's
near Montrose. He has been in the em
ploy of the Delaware and Hudson Canal
company thirty-two years and is at pres
ent the assistant superintendent of the
Dolph B. Atherton was born SO years
ago on a Susquehanna county farm adjoin
ing tbe present homestead. He came to
Scranton with bis father in 16G5 and has
since resided bare.
The last, but by no means the least im
portant, Atherton of this sketch is R. Nel
son Atherton, the 11-year-old son ot
Dolph B. Tbe little fellow was fully
alive to the sentiment attached to his im
portance as one of the group. He was
in high glee in view of tbe proposed sit
ting for tbe picture and displayed an af
fection for bis great-grandfather, which
was toqchingly reoiprocated by the old
man, tbe two proving the old adage that
"blood is thicker than water."
