Sad Life History of a Beautiful Brook
From tlf Brooklyn Time*.
In n little* white frame cottage on Liberty
a inie, near Wyckoff street, in the town
0 f New Lots, twenty-two j-ears ago, lived
1,, mis Hart and his wife, Catharine. They
had four remarkably pretty children.
Three were boys, and the other, the young
est, Marguerite, was a beautiful little girl
but It* months old. Him, of course, was the
pet of the family.
The lather of this interesting family was
a hard-working man, and earned but small
wages, barely sufficient to supply the neces
saries of life. In addition to this ho was
affected with lung trouble. He was a brush
maker by trade.
Next door to the Harts lived a middle
aged gentleman by the name of Edward
Wilder. This Wilder was a rich man. His
East New York residence he occupied only
a few months in summer. His whiter quar
ters were in New York city, not far from
Fifth avenue. He formerly had a butcher
stand in Washington Market, where, after
rears of patient labor, he amassed a com
petence. He then retired from business,
kune lucky investments in real estate made
him a millionaire.
Mr. Wilder, although passionately fond
of children, had no little ones of his own.
He often called upon the Hart family, and
admired the little Marguerite. He had
noticed the struggles of the head of Pie
family to keep the wolf from the door, and
observed with sorrow that the poor mail’s
strength was unequal to the tasks imposed
upon it. The baby antics of the little Mar
guerite had also worked upon his affections,
and a great love for the little ouo arose in
One day Mr. Hart returned from his
work sick in body and mind. Destitution
stared hiui in the face. His rich neighbor’s
sympathy was aroused, and, calling upon
Mr. Wilder, the latter made a proposition
to him. He stated how he had become at
tached to little Marguerite, how he had no
ticed their circumstances, and wound up by
offering to adopt the little one.
The poor man could not bring himself at
once to let the child go, and asked for time
to consider the matter. But Mr. Wilder
had set his heart upon gaining possession of
the little one, and offered to settle an an
nuity upon the boys if his proposition was
accepted. He also offered to divide between
the boys a valuablo plot of land lying in the
northern part of New York State. He
stipulated that when he should once have
possession of the child it should never again
be reclaimed by its parent under any cir
cumstance, and that Marguerite should
never be made acquainted with the fact
that he was other than her own father.
Quite an affecting scone ensued. The par
ents did not want to let the child go, but at
last came to the conclusion that it was the
best thing under the circumstances, and
gave the child into Mr. Wilder’s keeping.
Mr. Wilder immediately took Marguerite
to his New York establishment, and she
grew up to be a very beautiful young
woman, admired by ali. She was of the
blonde type,'with deep blue eyes and golden
hair, and skin like alabaster. Her figure
was superb. She was the belle of her set,
and many were her suitors. But she had
not as yet met her affinity.
In the summer of 1883 her father took her
to Newport, where she was the acknowl
edged belle. It was generally known that
she was an heiress, and that, with her
beauty, brought many suitors to her feet.
Among them was a handsome young lieu
tenant of the United States Navy. He was
a young man with many virtues, and but
few faults. He was a frequent attendant at
divine services. They met at the church.
A mutual reciprocation sprang up among
the young people, and they were often
seen upon the sands of Newport enjoy
ing one another’s society. They were a
handsome couple, admired by all, but
envied by none. Society began to whisper
that it was a match. Society for once was
right. The friendship of the young couple
in course of time ripened into a
wanner feeling, and one beautiful moon
light the young man rose to the occasion,
and the inevitable “proposal” w r as made.
Marguerite had been expecting this for
some time, but, like a dutiful daughter,
asked for time to consider her answer, and
in the meantime referred the whole matter
to her father. Her reasons for so doing were
that she was an heiress and he was com
paratively poor. People would look upon
this as a mesalliance. She was not sure but
that her supposed father might also.
Mr. Wilder listened attentively to Mar
guerite’s story, and at the conclusion he
smiled, and, clasping her to his bosom,
kissed her, at the same time assuring her
that if he found the young man’s character
and antecedents to be satisfactory, his pov
erty need be no bar to the consummation of
That same day Mr. Wilder went out, and
did not return until late. He appeared to
be depressed, and went to bed withdut say
ing a word. The next day at the breakfast
table, he proposed to his little family that
they take a trip to Europe. Marguerite had
noticed his altered manner, and when this
proposition was made, she understood it as
meaning that her father would not give his
consent to her marriage, and her heart
failed her for the moment. There was
something wrong. She asked him for his
answer. Mr. Wilder evaded her question
ing as long as he could, but when she staff'd
that if she did not get his consent to their
union, she would leave her supposed parents
and go to her lover, the old mail was obliged
te divulge the secret of years, and in
formed ner that the man she loved
was her own brother, Frederick Hart.
The poor girl fainted. When she came to
she was delirious. She was removed to her
bed, where she remained for several weeks,
and when she arose it was seen that her
brain was seriously affected. Her lover’s
name was constantly on her lips.
When Mr. Wilder started out to inquire
into the young man’s character, and found
that he was none other than his adopted
daughter's mvn brother, Fred Hart, he was
stunned. The young man was made ac
quainted with the fact of his relationship,
and took it to heart. A few days afterward
his body was found in the river.
After Marguerite had recovered suffi
ciently to bear the news, her adopted parents
told her of the death or her lover. She be
came affected with melancholy, and lias
gradually grown worse, until now it is
thought necessary to place her in some in
stitution where she will receive proper treat
ment, and possibly recover.
With that end in view, Mr. Wilder visited
a well-known medical expert in this city
yesterday, and arrangements were made for
placing her in a private institution in this
Shocking Life Led by Laborers on the
From the San Francisco Examiner.
Hebert L. Knox, who lias been connected
with the Panama railway' for the past six
months, was a passenger on the steamer
Aeapulco, which arrived hero Sept. 16. He
was braking on the railway, and resigned
his position several weeks before sailing.
“I left Ba timore last winter,” he said,
“to look after work. I bad been idle for
sometime, and didn’t care much what I
took hold of. I got an offer to go to Panama
and brake on the railway, and thinking of
what I hail beon told of the elimato, and be
ing glad enough to get an opportunity to go
to work, 1 accepted the offer.
“1 arrived at Panama in due season, and
was about to begin work two days after
leaving the steamer when I was seized with
a terrible fever. The air is thick and un
healthy, and I could hardly breathe. I was
convalescent at the end of a week, but I
hud something of the appearance of a
skeleton, being only a ghost of my former
“It’s not nm-essary to relate my own ex
perience; what was mine was that of every
one who goes there to stay.
"Panama comes nearer being hades than
any place I was ever in. In the rainy sea
ton the colored people die off like a herd of
cattle when disease spreads among them.
On one place on tne line daily funeral trains
are run. The cemetery is fourteen miles
from Aspinwall, and in the rainy season I
have s en five trains drive down there.
“They' have a curious way of burying
[icople there. When the train reaches the
graveyard the corpse is thrown into a hole
~ or 3 feet deep, and the coffin is taken back
to cany some other poor unfortunate to his
last resting place.
“I went down one day to see the canal la
borers at work, and 5 never will forget
what I saw there. About 400 men were at
work iu tills one place. Every nationality
was represented. There was the Scandina
vian toiling in his mechanical way, the Hi
bernian was joking while lie shoveled, the
African negro, the Jamaica negro, Mexi
cans, English, French, Russians, Turks, all
were there, and the John Chinaman, with
his natty' queue, worked in a broken-heart
ed manner, sighing for the Flowery King
dom which he left, hoping to better his for
tunes in a foreign country.
“Where the men were at work the ground
was sofff—muddy you would call it here.
When it is muddy there the ground is like
mush 2 feet deep. It was soft t hat day' and 50
or more fresh colored fellows had been
brought in. In the afternoon the heat and
the air had their effects upon them, and one
by one they fell. I saw one man hit on the
head by the excavating machine. He was
killed. The body' was immediately hoistsd
into the dumping tube, sent through the
machine, and that was the last seen of him.
You can see some shocking sights down
“At nightfall when the men are through
'work for the day they begin a night’s de
bauch on whisky smuggled into camp.
Whisky is not allowed around, but it is im
possible for the superintendents to enforce
the rules. The men will drink. If they did
not I believe they would go crazy. When
they becomo intoxicated nothing will sat
isfy them but a fight.
“If they would tight with their fists it
would not be so bad, but long, sharp knives
are drawn,Qind are red with blood before
sheathed again. Sometimes the most horri
ble butcheries are committed, and while one
man is being stabbed and hacked to pieces,
the others stand off and jeer, and comment
on the beauty of the contest.
“In a big city y'ou can see human nature
in bad forms, but the worst forms of vice
practised in New York, and London and
Paris are nowhere when compared with
what can be seen every day on the isthmus.
“After one of the contractors on the rail
way shot one of the canal-workers who
attempted his life, they are very careful
how they treat the railway hands. The
latter go well armed, and on the first, motion
made by' any of the blacks the pistol is
drawn. If the conductors were not careful
and fearless the trains would be held up
“The American government has not the
name that England has on the Isthmus of
“One reason is that the United States does
not protect her citizens in a foreign country.
If the conductor who shot the native lust
winter had been an Englishman there would
have been less trouble.”
THE CAMEL NOT PATIENT.
He is a Most Grumblesome Beast and
Has an Unpleasant Way of Dying.
From the New York Times.
The eamei is a very' unlovely and unlov
able beast, in spite of the dictum of Mr.
John Bright, who, in the winter of 1884-’BS,
pathetically spoke of the authority of his
inner consciousness, or perhaps of a stray
visit to the London Zoological Gardens,
where he might have seen one carrying
children, of the patient camel in the Soudan
uncomplaining under his heavy load. Not
only does be makes more row about his
burden than any other beast that is used by
man, but whether he is being loaded or un
loaded, lie howls and shrieks with rugo, and
woe betide the man, other than his regular
and feared driver, who is incautious enough
to get within reach at such a time of his
sharp and long teeth, which make as
ugly a wound as a doctor could dream
of. The natural history of the
camel may bo left to the authors of
more or less learned works upon the mam
malia of the animal kingdom, but there is
one of his characteristics which they all,
with one consent, have failed to note. * It is
his supercilious aspect. The one-humped
brute has this look in a greater degree even
than a British duchess in one of Mr. George
du Maurier’s pictures. Probably the car
riage of tlie head; possibly the full and inex
pressive eye; certainly the peculiarly-slit
nostrils account for much of this air of
lofty disdain which only' departs from the
camel under two conditions—when the
creature is grazing off the tender twigs of a
thorny acacia, if that can be properly called
grazing, and when it is dying. Then the
air of supreme disdain disappears. Indeed,
no animal, whatever its ordinary character,
puts on such a pitiful look in extremis as
the so-called ship of the desert. The dying
camel makes one feel, even when one has
seen hundreds of them die, sick with
sympathetic sorrow. Ho does not seem
to suffer pain like an ordinary animal
when he is wounded, for he will
jog along, if the bones of his limbs be not
fractured, as silently as ever, till he drops
from exhaustion. He may have a hole in
his back into which you might put both fists
—a hole first caused by an ill-fitting pack
saddle, and then ulcerated by flies and dirt,
but you will not learn the fact from his
countenance or his gait. When he lies down
on his side it is no use to waste time on him;
you will never get him on his legs again, or
get another hour’s work out of him. In
ten years’ experience of these brutes there
was only one occasion upon which a camel
that once lay on his sido was seen upon his
feet again, and in that case ho died during
the night. When he feels death approach
ing the mute agony of his visage is some
thing to remember, and not a pleasant thing
if memory happens to recall it in the dark
ness of a lonely vigil.
Excellence of Americans in Sports.
From the London Times.
Unfortunately, the result of the [Volun
teer-Thistle] race seems to prove that we
havp not yet mastei-ed the secret of success.
We must try again, that is all, and wo must
keep on trying until we do succeed. A
glance at tho work on “American Yachts
and Yachting,” which lias lately been pub
lished, with copious illustrations, by Messrs.
Cassell, will show what, immense pains and
skill the Americans devote to the art of
building fast sailing vessels. The truth is
that with them yacht racing is even more a
serious and absorbing pursuit than it is with
Englishmen, and when an American devotes
himself to a task of practical skill he is ant
to be hard to boat iu it. Americans have
not so many out-door pursuits as we have,
but such as they have they take very seri
ously. They have given us the best fishing
rods, and their skill in casting the fly would
put our best anglers on their mottle. They
can shoot and they can ride in their own
way as well as the best of us, ns the “Wild
West” has shown. Wo can hold our own in
rowing, but they beat us in sailing. They
are beginning to compete with us in horse
racing, and in trotting matches they have
no rivals. They am nowhere beside us in
cricket, but their skill in base ball, a game
which has a science of itsown, is marvelous.
