GOULD’S READY’ MONEY.
He Can Create a ,Panic Any Time by
How mU'fli' is Ja; w-m Lj*
Hisconfcempora ries, associates and crit
ics put him down at about $150,000,000. I
suppose it is not much exaggerated. We
know, who are brokers and in the bank
ing business here, the influence of his
ready money. He has got the best mon
ey in the country; it is all liquid money.
What do you mean by liquid money?
Money which flows like a liquid—like
quicksilver, according to tjie inclina
tion, up or down. The Astors, for ex
ample, do not have liquid money;Their
money is in real estate, upon which they
could not realize in tight times as well
as in easy times. Dut Gould’s money is
here in time of panic as readily as in
Almost any time he can withdraw
from the market $12,000,000, or can keep
it loaned. Now, the bank surplus is
only $10,000,000. So you see the pro
digious power’ that money his t in the
mere ebb and flow of it. When Mr.
Gould withdraws it, as he is said to do,
though 1 have no knowledge on the sub
ject, the times are terribly tight here.
Up goes the rate of interest. Men with
obligations are ready to pay almost any
thing. This money com’es to him in the
nature of his property.
His property is always earning money
in cash, if he resolves to purchase soiqe
costly piece of property, like the Union
Pacific railroad, he may put his money
out to let interest accumulate upon it.
He is not, however, a money lender in
the sense of Russell Sage, who lends
money to earn money. Mr. Gould lends
money with an object in view, in the
nature of a large merchant. Yet he is
without the conditions of such a man—a
A friend of mine not long ago bor
rowed $1,000,600 from him in the midst
of the panic. This man did not concedl
his temporary necessity, but said to Mr.
Gould, or rather wrote to him, that
whatever interest he was minded to ask
would be satisfactory. He says that
Gould said to him, “Go along until you
get through, and we will see about the
rate then.” When they came to settle
all that Gould asked him was otdinary
interest-Ml per cent. Such things he
does quietly without further remark,
and hence many persons who are not
very intimate with him, but have had
exchanges of that kind to take place,
think of him with as much respect as
they speak of him.
It must’be remembered, however, that

of respect for the cliffs and precipices of
the Matterhorn perished. For there 1
heard the story,of the fat German hauled
like a log up the peak by four guides, the
rope tied around liis waist and fastened
to Ins feet withaslip knot, and he swing
ing from rock to rock, suspended thou
sands of feet in the air and they never
bothering to look at him; and of the
Italian count who made the ascent with
seven guides in front, seven behind, and
one man to keep his legs straight against
the rocks; and of the boy of fourteen fol- ’
lowing in the train of the conqueror; and
of the woman reaching the top, and then,
as the guides literally ran her down,
quietly sleeping all the way back from
the lower hut until the bells of the little
church in Zermhtt awoke her.
And yet even the cynics who laughed
at these tales could be stirred into a show
of enthusiasm, and more than once were
we roused from our first sleep by the
ringing cheers with which the men at
the Monte Rosa greeted the return of the
last hero of the Matterhorn. And, after
all, there are certain perils which the ex
ploiters of the Alps cannot wholly coun
Ostentation at Funerals.
It is a sad commentary on a Christian
community, which takes that distinctive
title from- a religion whose founder is
called the Consoler because his word
plucks the sting from death, that it sur
rounds death with every circumstance of
woe and gloom. The distinctive minis
try of the faith seems to fail at the very
point to which it is especially addressed.
The natural Christian tone at the burial
of the dead would seem to be the cheer
that springs from the thought of immor
tality—a sublime hope, '* tender resigna
The Christian thought in that hour
should instinctively dwell upon the soul,
not upon the body, and the simplest and
most unostentatious rite of burial would
seem to be the most truly Christian. But
the ostentation of Christian funerals has
become so great that burial reform asso
ciations are formed, both in this country
and in England, to relieve the poor of
the painful and needless coat which,
from mistaken respect for the dead, they
will not spare so long as ostentation is
the custom.—George William Curtis in

Every now, and then I see an old man
■ walking down Pennsylvania avenue with
lus head bent in thought, paying little
flttentibu to the people he passes, but
stopping now and then to look into a
store window, or to look at the portraits
displayed in front of toe photograph gal
leries which abound on that street. At
fii’st glance there is nothing particularly
striking in his appearance. He is slen
der and not above medium height, and
dresses in clothes of a sort of brownish
gray color. A sandy gray beard hangs
in a point over his shirt front, and he
always wears a derby hat.
But if he turns his face full toward
you your attention is at once attracted
by a mass of blue spots thickly pepper
ing his cheeks, eyelids and forehead,
which indicate that he has literally
smelt powder—smelt it in close quar
ters. Big grains of the deadly explosive
have been driven deep into his flesh. It
was a bursting shell from the ram Mer
rimac that so marked him for life, and
the mouth of the gun was not far from
his face, for they fought in close quar
ters. Probably not one person out of a
thousand who pass him on toe avenue
knows who he is; he is almost lost to
sight and perhaps little thought of, but
he is among the very last of the great
commanders of the war who still linger.
He is Admiral Worden, who com
manded the Monitor, defeating the Mer
rimac, which threatened the destruction
of the United States fleet a.t Hampt&n ' /
roads. The shot that scarred him/ was J
fired fairly against the peepholy'in the
turret of the Monitor at which he had n
his eye watching the course of the ves

to get him to say* anything about him
self or about the battle in which he won
distinction. He eschews all articles of
dress which would indicate his profes
_ Gazelles and Unman Sentiment.
In the Jardin des Plantes, at Paris, in
a fine grassy inclosure, is a group of tiny
animals, the smallest antelopes known.
They will come, about the size of so
many cats, close behind their low wire
grating, and stand and doubtfully gaze
up at yuu with enormous liquid eyes.
And such is the effect of their littleness,
their timorousness, their almost absurd
delicacy—so small, so delicate, tihose lit

those fragile fawn colored sides,
little humid twitching muzzle; so small.N
and yet so keenly, tremulously per

bigness of their eyes. (

A Soap for Metal Work.
The soaps used for cleaning metal
work usually copsist of mixtbeas of vase
: line, oleic acid and fat, mixed ’.With a
small quantity of rougo. When freshly
prepared they leave nothing to be de
sired. But unfortunately such mixtuf-rsL ■
soon turn rancid, and become unfit for
A soap for metal work, which is stated
to be free from this objection, is made
from cocoanut butter in the following
way: 2.5 kilogrammes of the butter are
melted in an iron vessel together with a
little water, and to the mixture is added,
with constant stirring, 180 grammes
of chalk, 87.5 grammes of alum, 87.5
grammes of cream of tartar and 87.5
grammes of white lead.
This mixture is then poured into
moulds and allowed to solidify. The 1
soap so obtained is made into a paste
with water and rubbed over the metal
to lie cleaned, and finally removed by a
dry rag or'cliamois leather. —Manufact-
Court Room Fright.
A. genuine case of fright was devel
oped a few days ago when Charles Darr,
of Colerain pike, entered the court house
for the purpose of testifying in the case
of Thomas 8. Strahan versus Isabella ,
Watson before Jtfdge Bates and a jury.
Mr. Darr thus made his first appearance
in court. When he reached the large
entrance to the building, and the great
stairway loomed up before his startled
gaze, Mr. Darr’s teeth rattled like casta
As he slid up stairs on the elevator
several buttons dropped from his clothes,
so hard did he shiver and shake. As he
traveled the long corridor leading to the
court room poor Darr was completely
rattled, and a series z of shrill screams
issued from his lips. In order to prevent
the man going insane from childish
fright he was excused, and he made
tracks for his country home at a rate
that would defy the best efforts of a fly
ing machine. —Cincinnati Enquirer.
The Oldest Epitaph.
The oldest epitaph in English, which
is found in a churchyard in Oxfordshire,
and dates from the year 1370, to modem
readers would be unintelligible, not only
from its antique typography, but from
its obsolete language, the first two lines
of which run as follows, and may be
taken as a sample of the whole: “Man
com & se how schal alle dede bo: wen
yow comes bad & bare: noth hav ven we
away fare: all yewerines yt ve for care.” p
The modenj reading would be: “Man,
come and see how shall all dead be, when
you come poor and bare; nothing have,
when we away fare: All is weariness that '
we for care.”—Comhill Magazine.
