TWO VERY OLD WOMEN.
Ono of the Two Remaining Revolu
A dispatch from Canisteo, N. Y., to the
New York World says: An interesting
monument is Mrs. Phoebe Travis, of Travis
creek, an aged lady who smiles cheerfully
from tho shadow of her 104 years, and
hopes to see. tho twentieth century come in.
She is contemporaneous with the State of
New York. She saw it in its infancy, when
its cities were unbuilt, its farms and garden
patches the'primeval forest, its railroads
undreamed of, its highways few, its streams
clear and abundant and leaping with trout.
Her life has -been an eventful one, and she
remembers it well. Mrs. Hester Ann
Hayes, her daughter, can supply from per
sonal observation tho missing links for the
past 70 years.
Mrs. Travis was born on Christmas day,
1783„in Dutchess (now Putnam) county,
New York.. She was married to Ama'sa
Travis Dec. 14, 1800. In the month of Slay,
1801, they movod to Bergen county, New
Jersey, residing there about five years. In
1805 they moved to Sheshequin, Pa., and
remained there about one year. From there
they proceeded to Howard, Steuben county,
N. Y. Her son Charles, now 81 years of
age, was a babe as they came through
‘•Chimney Narrows,” near Corning, N. y.
the river‘having overflowed its banks and
covered Q>e road so the horses’ feet could
not touch the bottom. For a few seconds
they were in imminent peril; “but,” she
says, “I held my babes, one in each arm -
one a year and tho other three years old—
and my husband reined the horses safe to
Jund.” They proceeded through an almost
unbroken wilderness until they arrived at
Campbolltown, where a small clearing had
been made. They reached Bath, which
contained but very few houses, crossed the
Conhocton river at Kanona, before there
was any evidence of a village, and arrived
at Mr. Vaughn’s, upon the farm now occu
pied by Mr. Chamberlain, near
Kanona, that being the last
••chopping” until they reached Howard.
They occupied a place which had been in
tho possessic nof a Mr. Hovey. He had
chopped about three acres and had put up a
log house, which had only one gable-end
1 warded up; a floor hail boon laid except
around tho fireplace. There was neither
ceiling nor doors. Mr. Travis had to
return for another load of goods, so
they put up a quilt for a door and
rolled a barrel on the bottom of it
to keep it secure. Here she remained alone
with her babies until the return of her hus
band, with no neighbors within milos of
her. During tho night she had the cry of
the panthers for a lullaby.
The couple remained in this place about
one year, and then removed to Howard
Flats, where they lived from 1800 to 1818.
Mrs. Travis was a woman of wonderful
genius and physical energy, and literally
provided for and sustained a large family
by her own labor, while her husband was
felling the forest trees and clearing a place
for a home. She cut and made the coat
worn by Seth Bice, tho first Supervisor of
the town of Howard. Knowing her
superior abilities as a spinner and weaver,
Judge Hornell said to her that if she would
weave a piece of cloth to compote for a
premium at Bath and it took the premium,
lie would make her a present. She made
the cloth; it took tho premium at the fair,
and the Judge gave her a two-year-old
In 1818 she moved into Canisteo and re
mained there nearly four years. They then
went to Travis Creek, in" the southeastern
part of Caniste, about ten miles from the
village where Mrs. Travis still resides with
her daughter. Mr. Travis died Sept. 16,
1858. She was tho mother of twelve chil
dren. Two boys and seven girls grew up to
manhood. She boasts of fortv-six grand
children living and six dead, 115 great
grandchildren living and eighteen dead, and
twenty-five great-great-grandchildren liv
ing and six dead—making a grand total of
Mrs. Travis remembers perfectly the death
of Washington, but she was never his nurse
or his retainer. She travels, like a sensible
old lady, on her own reputation, and it
is no figure of speech to say that she is the
pride of this section of country.
Another dispatch from Washington C.
H., 0., says: There is nothing like n good,
fat (tension to make an old widower attract
ive to the female mind, and there are few
things equal to a good, fat pension in mik
ing the male mind active in recollecting ser
vices that were nevir performed. When the.
government made pensioners of all tho sur
vivors of tho war of 1812, with
their widows, there was a great
lush of youthful women to the
arms of aged survivors, and the govern
ment is still paying the expenses for this
hurst of marital generosity. Everybody
remembers the ease of the fictitious English
vessel which was supposed to have arrived
off the Maine coast, and tho large number
of pensioners who were quickly created bv
the Governor’s call for troops, but this
instance is not nearly so comically interest
ing as that of the widows, who patriotically
joined themselves to the aged when Undo
is.un tied a pension to the aged’s coat-tails.
A ease in point is Mrs. Mary Casey, a
widow of the somewhat late John Casey, of
the Revolutionary war. She is now old
enough to be willing to have nothing said
about her age, but she was only 16 when she
took upon herself the n&hie of Casey and
promised to love, honor, obey and spend the
pension of the 78-year-old veteran of the
When the Revolutionary war broke out
Mr. Casey was living among tho mountains
of Virginia, and was among the first to rush
lorth in defense of liberty and independence.
After the war was concluded Casey set
tled in Kanawha county, Va. Ho lived as
a planter for many years, and became well
known throughout the neighborhood. Mm.
Casey, whose maiden name was Cox, says
that her husband was about TH years of ago
when be came on a trip to Jackson county,
o.,and that upon this occasion they met for
the lirst time, and wero shortly afterward
married. After the old soldier’s death liis
widow returned to Ohio, where it became
necessary for her to toil for a living. One
of her sons is in the regular army, and is
said to be a handsome, well-built fellow.
Mrs. Mary Casey, of Washington C. H..
and Mrs. Tilton, of New Hampshire, are
said to tie the only Revolutionary war
widows now living. Mr-s. Casey is remark
ably healthy, and may live for many year.-,
to come. Mrs. Abigail Tilton, the other
and, it is believed, the only other Revolu
tioimry war widow,'receives a pension from
both the State and national governments,
amounting in ail to about &JOO a year.
A MISER STARVES HIMSELF.
Fearful Sight in the Filthy Garret of
an East Sldo House.
From the New York World.
Amid the most squalid and filthy sur
foundings imaginable the police and health
officers yesterday found a gaunt and hoary
headed old miser, starving hiinselfjto death,
in a garret at No. 123 Cannon street. The
house, which is midway between Stanton
and East Houston streets, is a two-story
white frame structure, ownod by John
Matthews, of No. 12ti Sheriff street, and is
occupied, on the ground floor, by the Old
No. -if Live Oak Association. The second
floor is occupied by Mrs. MeArdle, formerly
the wife of Francis Ciarke, the famous okl
time President of the association. In the
basement lives a Mrs. Grossman, who works
out by tiio day.
The most interesting, and at the same
time most objectionable, tenant is the old
miser, who has boon persistently starving
himself for twelve weeks past, until now ho
is nothing but a skeleton. liis name is Ju
lius Weisbaden. Ho is about 75 years of
are, tall ayd yellow-skinnod, with long and
matted white hair, shaggy eyebrows and
unkempt gray moustache and whisker*.
He tins apparently not bad a bath in ninny
moutiis. The old man lias been the sole oc
cupant of the'garret for upward of two
years, but it is only within the past three
months that his strange und filthy habits
have become noticeable. Only once in the
Must three weeks bus ho boon visible to tho
other occupants of the house, and that was
one morning when ho crawled out to the
hydrant, or sink, in the hall to get some
water to drink. Many a time tho kind
hearted women in (lie house essayed to fetch
him something to t at, but on all occasions
i he would keep the door locked and decline
Naturally his mode of living resulted in
sickening odors emanating from his rooms
and pervading the whole house. Tho occu
pants repeatedly made efforts to get into
his room, but in vain, until at last they
notified the police. Roundsman Flanagan
visited the place Saturday, but was denied
admission, and tho following day ho again
went there, accompanied by several officers.
They were about to force onen the door
when the key turned, a couple of bolts were
drawn back and the old miser stood before
them, looking for all the world like an appa
rition of Rip Van Winkle.
When he beheld the officers in uniform he
quaked from head to foot, whined like a
child and staggered backward towards a
big battered trunk. He fell upon his knees
and hugjjed the trunk, exclaiming, in a
feeble and guttoral voice:
“What do you want here* You can’t
come in here. This is mine, all mine!”
Then he became more composed as lie no
ticed the peaceful intentions of the officers
and fell upon the floor. He soon recovered,
however, and in answer to the officers’
questions said that he was not starving, and
that he had all he wished and money too.
To prove this last assertion he pulled from a
corner of tho trunk a roll of bank notes and
also several bank books, which he flourished
in the officer's face, hut quickly hid them
again. Seeing that the man was not in need
of funds, the officers withdrew and told the
residents that they could do nothing. Last
evening .Airs. McArdle wont to police head
quarters and reported the case to the health
authorities, who will make an investigation
to-day, and the old miser, who is almost a
corpse, will be removed to tho hospital.
The reporter last night visited the place.
Strangely enough the door was open, hut
the room was dark. A lamp was borrowed,
and a strange sight greeted the eyes of the
visitors. On an old chair near the door sat
the man bolt upright and fast asleep. Ho
wore only a filthy shirt and a pair of duck
trousers. The long, gaunt and b!a< ’: fin
gers of his hands were intertwine, i md
restqd in his lap, and he looked as if -n
death had already claimed him. Several
louds calls and stamps upon the floor f ailed
to awaken him, and he only opened his eyes
widely on being rudely shaken by the
“What do you want? Robbers! Murder!
Go out! Leave me alone! It’s all mine!”
he exclaimed in rapid succession. But he
could not move from Iris chair. Beside him
was a board on a barrel serving as a table.
On this were a glass half full of stale beer,
a little old kerosene lamp without oil or
chimney and a few dirty kitchen utensils.
The floor was bare and dirty. The only
other furniture in the room was an old
lounge, an antiquated clock on the wall, and
a huge trunk in which he is supposed to
have his treasure. In a closet was a dirty
mattress on the floor, with a box under it
for a pillow, and this was the old man’s cot.
In this closet was another large trunk that
was locked, strapped and hound many
times with a rope.
When the visitors entered these rooms the
old miser was almost beside himself, screech
ing and gesticulating, and making signs for
them to leave, which they were glad to do
after a hasty glance.
For a number of years before coming to
his present hovel he lived at No. 128 Sheriff
street with a family named Matthews, At
that time he was employed as a salesman in
the coffee and tea warehouse of B. Fischer
& Cos., 183 to 187 Duane street, with whom
he was for twenty two, years until recently.
He made a great deal of money on commis
sions and saved it all. He frequently spoke
to them of his past, saying he came from
AVie.sbaden, Germany, many years ago,
leaving his wife and two daughters behind.
They were all wealthy, as were also his own
family, but he had to leave the country,
why, he would not tell. During the civil
war he ifitimatod that he was a regular
“bounty jumper,” from which souroe he
amassed about $20,000. All this he saved,
and most of it is invested in bonds. Somo
five or six years ago he boasted that he had
enough for life; but of late, becoming old and
not so successful as formerly, he imagined
he was going to become poor, and began de
priving himself of all nourishmtnt. Three
times a week he would call up some chil
dren and give them 10c. with which to get
u quart of lager beer. This lie kept in a
stone pitcher and set it in a bucket of water
to keep cool, and would drink a mouthful
or two occasionally. This was all the nour
ishment that passed his mouth for many
weeks. He always paid his rent, however,
which was $6 a month,'but grudgingly, say
ing ho would move to cheaper quarters,
but was afraid he might lose some of his
things. On several occasions Mrs. McArdle,
and others who chanced to peep into the
room, saw the old miser counting over
bonds and money. They saw him groping
around corners of the room, and under the
trunks and mattress and feeling with a
broomstick under the floor, which had
holes, while he patted tho sides of tho room
with his hands. It is supposed that ho has
money hidden in many little out of the way
places, and those who know him best esti
mate that ho ho has all tho way from
$40,000 to $60,000.
VILAS IN DISGUISE.
Crude Method of Avoiding Recognition
—Concealed With Iron Spectacles.
The Milwaukee Sentinel tells the follow
ing story: R. N. Austin, tho well-known
attorney, and his wife returned yesterday
from a lour weeks visit to Nantucket,
where they had !een taking it vacation.
On tiie same train through from the East
was Postmaster General Vilas, who nrriveil
at his home yesterday afternoon, joining
liis family, who are spending the summer
there. Mr. Austin is an old acquaintance
of Col. Vilas, having several times appeared
with him in the Supreme Court at Madison.
Rut aboard the train tho Postmaster Gen
eral was traveling in disguise—perhaps to
avoid newspaper correspondents and public
attention. So complete was his disguise
i hat Mr. Austin h> sitated nearly twenty
four hours lief ore speaking to his old
acquaintance, loss he should find he was
mistaken, and perhaps be bande I over to an
officer at a way station asaconfld ‘ace man.
S|ieaking about liis trip and the Vilas inci
dent to a party of .friends, yesterday, Mr.
“We loft New York nboard a vestibule
train on the Pennsylvania road at 9 o’clock
Wednesday morning. At suppsr time I no
ticed a man coming through our couch go
ing to the dining car. whose general appear
ance was familiar. He attracted no atten
tion, however, except from myself. I eyed
him and he eyed me. thought to myself,
is that not Col. Vilas? Rut no, there was
something about him that was foreign to
the Colonel. Tiien 1 remembered. It was
the absence of go!d-riramed spectacles. I
had never soon Col. Vilas wear anything
else. This man wore file ordinury specs,
such as I am accustomed to wear,” and Mr.
Austin put on a pair of ordinary glasses.
“I inquired of the sleeping car conductor
if tho Postmaster General was nboard tho
train. He said no. Then I said, if lain
not much mistaken, Col. Vilas is aboard tho
train. ‘But I have been through the train
and taken tho numesof everyonedorberths,
and Col. Vilas’ name is not on the list,’ said
the conductor. Then I became convinced
that I must be mistaken.
“At breakfast time this morning the man
with the specs passed through our coach.
He eyed me again'and I eyed him, until at
last I determined to satisfy myself. I fol
lowed him out into the vestibule and said,
‘ls this not Col. Vilas? If not,’ I said, ‘then
you are his double.’ He admitted his
identity and recognized me. We had a
long chat together. I told him now’l had
piuuy positively satisrted myself us to his
Identity until the conductor threw me off
the track. Ho intimated that he w s
traveling ‘incog,’ but I did notask why. 1
ivas satisfied that it was to escape hews- !
|ia|ier correspondents, or for some equally ,
good reason. Ho said he was tired out. and i
was gums hum i to take a four weeks rest." I
