Other Important Real Estate Deals
nnd Contemplated Improvements.
Several Important real estate deals
were consummated In tills city the past
few days.
The trlaiiRiilar plot of ground facing'
Illver street on Sixth, avenue has been
purchased from llryee It. Ulnlr by Airs.
John Gnughan. The purclmse price
was JS.t'OO.
The new owner contemplates the
erection of a three or four story build
ing, In the spring. Architects are at
present at work making the plans for
the structure, and they will be com
pleted and In Airs. Gauuban's bunds
by the latter part of this month. She
has not as yet decided whether to use
stone or brick, but In either case the
building will bo u Splendid architect
ural addition to the city.
It will be of the latest Improved
style and equipped with all up to dale
facilities. Airs. Gatighan does not at
this time give out what the building
will be used for, but It Is probable It
will be 11 villa. The building will set
close to the river, fronting on tttver
street, toward the Seventh avenue sta
tion of the Delaware and Hudson com
pany. The lot has been abandoned for
a number of years, it Is a continua
tion or the plot of ground on which

Another deal which has cittlsed much
Interest was 1 lie transfer of the Alof
lltt house and lot on Alain street to
James Cotlglilln, the merchant. The
consideration was' $7,000, which is gen
erally believed to be a good ligure. The
property adjoins Air. Coughlln's store,
and when combined with his former
possession will give him one ol the
linest pieces or real estate In the city.
Another Important business deal was
made this week when Airs. I.. II. Sny

Start a Good Deal of Worry Other
Hospital Cases.
Alartin Jordan, the man whom Pal
rick AlcNulty shot on Sunday, Dec.
!!0, while the former was bombarding
the house ot the latter during tho
early morning hours, Is causing the
hospital staff a good deal of worry and
The leg, which was tilled with bird
shot. Is fearfully swollen and wherever
one f the shot lodged there Is pus.
The shots were rusty and unclean, and
this, coupled with Jordan's lowered
vitality, due to bis dissipation, led to
the symptoms of septic poisoning that
have manifested themselves. Ills tem
perature is dangerously high nnd the
fever shows no signs of abating. I-ast
night It was given out at tho hospital
that there were no signs ot improve
ment and that danger was appre
hended. Willie AloIUtt, the 7-year-old son of
Sanitary Policeman P. F. Alollltt, who
was operated on for appendicitis a

and Is Improving each day. This will

I'roni the Nov.' York Sun,
The first year ot the twentieth cen
tury, A, V. W01, saw many now records
established In odd linos ot human ac
tivity, while It left 11 pathway strewn
with old records broken. To begin at
the beginning: On New A'ear's day
there were thirty deaths from Violent
causes In various parts of Kentucky.
This record set a new high slaughter
mark even In that state of feuds where
firearms and moonshine whiskey, freely
used on holidays, constitute a double
tnenaco to human life.
Kentucky, by the way, eclipsed nil
former records In another direction. On
January 29 a Kentucky firm sold to a
Chicago house S.fiOO barrels of whiskey,
which Is the largest single transaction
In good old red liquor over known. On
this whiskey the United States govern
ment received $300,000 In revenue tax;
tho total amount of cash Involved In
the deal was about $"".0,000; tho quan
tity or spirits was sutllclent to fill 3,
110,000 pint bottles; retailed at "1", cents
a pint the sum rcnllssed would be $2,
CSO.OOO. There seems to bo no trust
worthy way to estimate this total num
ber of jags contained In all this whis
key, or its fecundity In snakes.
The matrimonial mart usually has big
things to show In a year. All nuptial
speed records were smashed on Sun
day, August 10, at St. Joseph, Allcli. ,
Chicago's Orolna Oreen, when twenty-
seven couples from Chicago were deftly
spliced in one hour and three-quarters,
each couple thus having less than five
minutes to go through tho mill.
The minister who In 1f0l claliped tho
record with reference to the grand total
of marriages and funerals, connected
with a long minister's life, Is the Rev.
J. M. Hatighey. ot Allison City, a little
town thirty miles south of Pokln, III.

period of some forty years, he has mar

achievement in former cases in any
part of the United States was twenty

San Francisco couple, In 1900.

through Allchlgan, Indiana. Ohio,

He averaged about 100 miles a day and
