WHERE TV/EED WAS HAPPY.
His Country Place In Greenwich and
How He Lived There.
From the Feu- York Evening Sun.
William M. Tweed is best remembered.
And as he would most wish to he remembered,
by the people of Greenwich. If there were
two sides to his character, it was the kindly,
sympathetic, and gentle one which was seen
here, and never any other. There will be
completed this week a beautiful structure of
freestone and granite, exquisite in it- pro
portions and most pleasing in its arrange
ment of colors. It is built on the site of
Tweed’s old home here, and
for the residence of a New York family of
great wealth, and yet in a certain sense it
will always suggest the memory of Tweed.
For it is so striking a building, and is so
charmingly situated on the biuft facing the
sound, where Tweed was so fond of spend
ing summer afternoons, that strangers, ask
ing what place it is. will be told: “Oh, that
is the new million dollar house, built on the
spot that Tweed passed his happiest hours
That is the way it is already spoken of.

but thev may say wliat they like of Sir.
Tweed, but we have never seen one like him
This tender and grateful recollection of
one who was known in the whirl of New
York activities as the Boss, is due wholly to
his hearty sympa thy with the poorer people,
his charity, which was as unostentatious as
it was great, the simplicity of his personal
life here, and his willingness to listen to any
appeal for aid.
It was by accident that Tweed found his
summer home in Greenwich, and arose out
of the selection of a grove <>n Greenwich
harbor for the Americas Club House. Those
■who knew Mr. Tweed best were aware that
he was most keenly impressed with quaint
or striking bits of landscape, and it was just
such a bit that struck lus fancy as he was
riding through the then little village of
Greenwich, it was the farm of Alvar Mead,
that was bounded on one side by the old
Boston and New York turnpike, doped away
to the southeast, and terminated in the
bluff known as Put's Hill, and hardly a
ston-'s throw distant from the alleged spot
where bluff old Putnam dashed down the
precipice with British bullets grazing his
coat and cutting through his hat. Prom
the bluff a fine view of the sound and of the
white sands and green hills of Long Island
was presented, and at the foot of the lank
curled a little inlet from the sound, back
from the old tide mill pond. This quaint
old shingled mill, where thp tide furnished
the power Pi grind grain for Washington's
array, stood in the vista, and tig> whirr of
its wheel could be heard.
Tweed was charmed with the spot at the
first glance he had of it, and decided to
possess it that he might make it the place
for peaceful retreat for himself and family.
But he found it not so easy to possess it.
The farmer who owned it knew the value of
uidney . but land was even more than money
tttß Mtn, and he refused to sell. Tweed jier
stated and asked Parmer Mead to name a
priwf without avail. One morning he met
.tihßp-rmer in the depot, and in a bantering
ttuMpn- said: “Now, I don't believe you

Sown to a gently undulating lawn, and the
rough farm lot when; eorii and potatoes
bad flourished for a hundred years became
a tiling of beauty. At the easterly end,
next adjoining the present residence of A.
Foster. Higgins, a long lane, shaded by elm
trees, led to the farm house. Tweed set
competent professional arboriculturists to
work upon this lano, and they converted
it into what many now regard as the
most perfect approach to a residence in this
country. Tlicte is only one public street
that can compare with it, and that is Temple
street in New Huven. The elms are set near
together, the branches were carefully
tmmned, and no church nave is more regu
larly ami jxirfectly arched. Of course, in
Tweed’* day it had not reached the beauty
of to-day, as the elms were not so well
grown; but he saw w hat eould lie made of
the lane, and what it is to-day is due to
Tweed's thoughtfulness. Whether he can
have a more enduring monument than that
or not. in this community he can have none
There stood and still stands a very large
elm tree on the ground near the house—
which, by the way, stood some "SKI feet back
from the highway—und when Tweed saw it
he said he would' have a roust in it. The
contour of the lower branches was such
that a lurge platform could lie easily built
to rest upon them, and the carpenters were
instructed to put one there. Thus Tweed
had iu this higolm a charming little chalet,
approached by a winding staircase around
the trunk of the elm, and here it was his
great delight to tain; his guests on
Lot summer afternoons, where the
cooluess was most grateful. Many a time

■Many distinguished men in jtoiitica) or busi

in the big elm ti-ee, but while there he would
permit no serious business or jiolitical con

that relax the mind.

structure, painted blown, very comfortable,
but wholly inadequate to Mr.'Tweed's needs.

TT hat Tweed would have done for the

to make it the most beautiful suburb of New

and presenting it to the town as a park. His

MISS CLEVELAND'S PORTRAIT.
The Difficulty the Newspapers Had In
Describing the extraordinary efforts which
were required to obtain the first portrait of
Mis- Cleveland print**! in the newspapers,
the art manager of the American Press As
sociation said the other day to a New York
Mail write*: “I made arrangement with
the <irap'n ic. and we conjointly engaged a
clever lady art;st. Miss E. L. Sylvester, living
a! the time in Washington, to sketch Miss
< 'levektnd at the liret < p.pirtuiiity. The man
ner in whi'-h she performed her work would
have done credit to a veteran newspaper
man. Mi— t 'leveland attended Sunday ser
vices in Ir. Sunderland’s church, anu our
art.-t managed for two consecutive Sundays
to obtain a -cat in a pew adjoining liers. It
was admirable vantage ground for taking a
sketch. Miss Cleveland was absent the first
Sundav, but on the second she was there,
and Miss Sylvester made three splendid
ski -tches of her. How she accomplished this
feat in a crowded church without
attracting observation i.s a miracle.
I am sure if a man had lieen delegated
to the task it would never have been suc
e**ssfully accomplished. Perhaps she shaded
her o|x-rati"ns with the cover of a Bible.
When th -• sketch'-.'* were received we se
lected th" b~st and had a fine crayon draw
ing made from ii. Being somewhat uncer
tain of a likeness taken in this surreptitious
manner, we determined to make assurance
doubly sure by submitting it to the criti
cism of Miss C. Hallowav. the editor
of Miss Cleveland's forthcoming liook. I
caught her by surprise. No sooner had
her eyes rested on the picture then she ex
claimed with unfeigned astonishment,
"Where did you get it f I knew by this
that it was safe to publish the portrait.
Miss Hallowav immediately telegraphixi the
facts to Washington, and Mr. Cleveland
wr<'te a personal letter to the Graphic ask
ing them not to publish the jxirtrait. You
may tie vrv sure that the letter was
ignored. The outcome of the affair was
that we published the likeness and Miss
Cleveland withdrew the plate of her
picture from her book. The likeness of the
President's young wife was not so difficult
to obtain. 1 always manage to be a trifle
ahead of the times, ami when I heard of the
President's probable marriage to Miss Fol
som I made tie-greatest efforts to procure
her picture. By making inquiries 1 ascer
tained that she bad numerous relatives in
Folsomdale. From one of them I ob
tain'd a photograph taken when
she was about 10 years old. [t is a beauti
ful picture, and was taken at the time she
gaimd the prize for lx auty at the church
fair ill Folsomdale. This was the first like
ness of her we publish'd. After she came
from Euroi*' k-r pictures were plentiful
enough. The President has always been

A Manly Dude.
From the Bouton Transcript.
The Listener observed [the other morning]
a printer's boy who had trundled an over
loaded w heel-barrow into Cornliill, over the
street pavement and had essayed hi got it up
from the gutter upon the sidewalk. The
barrow was laden with unbound books,
evidently on their way to one of the book
binderies on that street. It was a very
big harrow anda very small boy; and w hen
the little fellow attempted to get his load
upon the curbstone, he was quite unable to
do it. Here he had struggled, it seemed,
he had become quite discouraged, and, see
ing a little crowd gathering to look at his
vain efforts to move his stalled vehicle, the
boy liurst into tears.
J ust at this juncture there came up a dude
of the most extravagant type; an exquisite
fellow, with quit*- an English Derby hat,
you know, straight-brimmed and low in the
crown; spotless light fawn-colored overcoat:
pearl-gray kids: nicely bagging trousers
with the crease down the sides; [jointed
shoes, with gaiters over them; and carried
level in one band a big cane. It seemed to
take this exquisite specimen but an instant
to take in the situation. Then he stepped up
to the curbstone in front of the wheelbar
row, daintily and dettly removed his kid
gloves, gave them and the cane to the
weeping boy to hold, seized the dirty wheel
of the barrow with both hands, ana, lifting
it clear of the gutter, set it fasrly upon the
“Now, my little man, give me the stick
and the gloves, and then vou can trot along
with it, don’t you know:'* said the dude to
the Imy, who, though looking grateful, put
his hands to the barrow, after he had hand
ed over the articles, and moved away with
out a word.

A Drayton Street Growl.
Editor Morning News'. We are certainly
very fortunate in having t!u> services of
Alderman Thomas, the very active chair
man of the Street and I.ane Committee.
The improve! condition of our streets and
parks are so apparent that we have reason
t o feel proud oi our beautiful Savannah. It
is necessary, however, to draw the imme
diate attention of our honorable Board of
Aldermen to the terrible condition of the
Drayton stroot pavement, the only street
that is used for driving from the most ex
treme north to the south side. The pave
ment through its entire length is in a most
shameful condition. Let it either lx? taken
up mid properly repaved, or paved with
asphaltum. lam snre the property hollers
would favor an asphalt pavement. 1 trust
the Aldermen will take immediate action 111
the matter. K.
