SHE DREAMEDOF WEALTH
THE STORY TOLD OF MISS ANNA
PADGETT, OF BROOKLYN
And the Next Morning the Family
Read of Old Mr. Beun’e Millions and
His Will-Miss Padgett’s Mother
Thinks They May be Interested in It
—The Story of Ihomas Bean and the
Search for Heirs to His Estate.
From the Xem York World.
“To dream of receiving money,” says one
of those yellow-colored volumes of alleged
wisdom generally known as dream books,
"is a positive pi-ophecy that your wealth
will be increased.”
Whatever bit of chance truth this produc
tion may contain, it at any rate possesses a
certain amount of interest for a young lady
in Brooklyn, who is anxiously awaiting a
practical test of the witch warning.
The lady in question is Miss Anna Pad
gett, of No. 128 Douglass street Some
nights ago, just after retiring, she fell into
a gentle doze, and. as sleep visions go, the
form of a stranger suddenly arose before
her and announced, in a matter-of-fact but
courteous manner, that she had been favored
with a bequest of *B,OOO from a former
relative. Somewhat incredulous, she asked
for proof, am tho stranger, producing a
number of documents, placed them in her
liands and then vanished. Miss Padgett
took up the papers and was about to read
an inscription on tho back of one of them
when—as is generally the case—she awoke,
and with her slumber went her new-found
The next morning she related her dream,
with all its startling features, at the break
fast table, and while the remainder of the
family were quizzing her, one of them, who
had been scanning the W orld , read aloud
an article headed “Bean's Undivided Mil
lions.” The latter set forth that new de
velopments had come to light in the tainous
Thomas Bean estate matter through the
discovery of a will which disposed of the
property of *2.000,000 in an evidently equit
able manner, *1,000,000 being given to n
aunt of the testator, Nancy C. Gee, and the
remaining million being divided into five
This piece of news fell like a bombshell in
the family gathering.
“Why, my grandmother’s name was
Nancy C. Gee,” exclaimed Mrs. Padgett,
“and the name is so uncommon that 1 am
inclined to think she must be the person
designated in the wilL ”
The article was again gone over with
more care, and this time it was discovered
that it was in the form of a special tele
graphic dispatch to the World from Bon
ham, Tex., where the property is located,
and where the testator, Thomas Bean, re
sided for many years. The latter died in
August last, and after his demise no will
could lie found. More than one cluimaut
bobbed up for the property, the most prom
inent of whom were relatives in Washing
ton. D. C., and a man named J. W. Saun
ders, who asserted that he was a brother of
the dead man, and added that the latter
had changed bis name from Saunders to
Bean forty years ago became he had killed
a man in Tennessee and therefore desired to
hide his identity.
Saunders’ story was believed by many
and preparations were being made to dis
pose of the property by the courts, Saun
ders having given notice that he would
contest for the estate, when the will turned
up last week. It had been dated Aug. 15,
IBS7, and addressed “Smith & Taylor, Bon
ham. T< x.,” and mailed the same day on a
train of the Santa Fe railway. Therelieing
no firm known as “Smith & Taylor” in
Bonham, the will went to the dead-letter
office at Washington, where it remained
until its identity was discovered, and on in
formation it was found to be intended for
Col. Robert Tayior and S. N. Smith of Bon
The document was immediately filed, and
the fact made known that the testator de
sired *I.UUO.OOO to go to his aunt, Nancy C.
Gee, of Washington county, Texas, and the
other million divided equally, one-fifth
going to the churches of Fannin county,
Texas, one-fifth to lie divided among Bean’s
former slaves, one-fifth among the poor
children of Fannin county for educational
purposes, one-fifth to Fannin county, and
or>e-fifth to the executors, Col. Robert
Taylor and S. M. Smith. Accompanying
the will was a note from W. C. Pierpont,
dated Burnet county, Texas, which stated
that the document had been properly exe
cuted by liiin, and was the last will and
testament of Thomas Beau.
The reception of Hhe pajiers only tended
to muddle matters the more, as it cut off
the present claimants entirely and gave
one-half the estate to a person who is not
known to any, although a few persons have
been found who have heard of Nancy C.
Gee a long time ago. Then again, W. C.
Pierpont, who claimed to have executed the
will, could not lie touud. Saunders and the
other claimants have not been deterred
by the appearance of the document and will
appear in court to-day at Bonham to contest
“I feel convinced,” said Mrs. Padgett,
* "that the Nancy C. Gee mentioned in the
wiii is my grandmother, liecause the name
is rather novel and I have never known any
other weson to bear it except myself. My
name before marriage was Annie M. Gee, but
was construed into Nancy. I was born and
always resided in Washington, D. C.\ until
seven t ears ago, when 1 came to Brooklyn.
I enve a brother in the naval service at
Annapolis and a married sister in Baltimore.
None of our relatives to my knowledge ever
settled in Texas and none of them was
named Saunders or Bean. I had an uncle,
however, named Sanderson, who went
away somewhere years ago, and I
think probably he and Bean are
identical and that he, being very old at
his death, either forgot or was not aware
that Nancy C. Gee was dead and willed her
half of his prope ty, and designated her of
Washington county instead of Washington,
I). C'. ft is a very complicated matter and
we would not probably have paid so much
attention to it but for the very vivid and
peculiar dream of my daughter. 1 have
communicated with my relatives in the
South und will institute an investigation,
and. if the facts warrant it, file a claim for
my share of the property. My grandmother,
Nancy C, Gee, died about thirty years ago.”
How They Bake Beans in Boston.
F>om the Poston Saturday Evening Gazette.
A French cook isn’t worth a snap on
baked beans, and if the proprietors of our
leading fashionable hotels are not careful the
priceless, time-honored, hitherto undisputed
glory of “Boston baked beans” will have de
parted. Beans in the leading hotels of Bos
ton, we blush to hear repeatedly, are not
“half baked.” Our good old grandmothers
knew more about cooking our national
dishes than all the French cooks in the
world, and, to the shame of lending Boston
hotels ba it said, a stranger must gain ad
mission to our private residences if lie would
know What “Boston baked beans” really are
and should be. The old ladies aforesaid
soaked the beans in cold water during Friday
nieht. On Saturday morning they changed
the water, and parboiled them gently for
two hours. They then gave them a good
rinsing, and put them in a pot with a good
sized piece of wait pork, with a streak of lean
in it. They then baked the beans slowly
during the day, and suffered them to remain
in the oven through Saturday night, taking
care to have plenty of water in the pot dur
ing the process of cooking. On Sunday,
whether for breakfast, or lunch or evening
lunch, the baked iieans became “a feast for

UNFAIR TO THE BRIDE.
The President Helps on a Joke at the
Expensive of a Blissf.ri Couple.
From the Philadelphia Ledger
A large number of newly married couples
on their wedding tour are among the callers
at the White House tri-weekiy receptions,
and to these, when discovered, the Presi
dent is always particularly gracious. A few
months ago a very amusing incident at
tended the visit of a newly married couple.
The groom was on the editoriul staff of a
leading daily newspaper of Chicago. On
his arrival in Washington the groom called
on tlie resident correspondent of his paper,
who, in turn, called on the newly wedded
pair at their hotel. A visit to the White
House was planned, the correspondent
agreeing to accompany and present t hem to
the President. It was explained that a large
nuni tier of newly married people attended
tbe public receptions, and that the President
had become so expert that In* could detect a
bride at the first gianye. This particular
bride declared that she had endeavored to
conceal the fact from observers that she was
a bride, and flattered herself that her ef
forts had been successful. She was con
vinced that tho President would not be able
to detect her.
“You cannot deceivs the President,”
said tlie correspondent. “He has not
failed in a single instance since he was
A visit was made to the Treasury Depart
ment to occupy the time intervening before
the hour appointed for the reception. The
correspondent seized an opportunity, and
wrote a note to CoL Lamont, informing
that shrewd attache of the result of this
conversation, and that it was his piirpOse to
attend the public reception with his newly
married friends Lamont was requested to
notify the President and request him to
identify the young lady as a bride. The
party reached the White House in good sea
son, and, at the suggestion of the correspon
dent, they seated themselves on a sofa in
the East Room, and watched the other vis
itors pass and greet the President. Taking
their places at the tail of the line, the party
was soon in front of the President, when the
correspondent presented his friend. Grasp
ing the lady’s hand tlie President said:
“Mrs. , I am pleased to see you, and
desire to present my congratulations on
your recent marriage. We have not had
the usuui number of brides among the call
ers to-dav. I think you are only the
fourth: but the scarcity in numbers is
compensated for by the beauty and at
tractiveness of the few who today favored
The young lady was so completely sur
prised with the kindly speech and manner
of the President, as well as by his identifica
tion, that she could make no reply, and
fiassed speechless to the vestibule, where she
mrst into tears. She charged the corre
spondent with revealing to the President
that she was a bride, a charge which he
skillfully combated by referring to the fact
that he had not been but of her sight and
hearing during the entire morning. Re
covering her composure she upbraided her
self* for stupidity in not making proper
acknowledgment "of the President’s cordial
greeting, and expressed the greatest surprise
at the wonderful power of discernment he
exhibited. In this she was not more sur
prised than her husband.
Both Killed in a Duel.
From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
Morrison, Col., Nov. 20. —A desperate
duel, in which both combatants were killed,
occurred on a ranch eighteen miles from
here yesterday. Three years ago Alexander
Gloss" bought a ranch from John Everhart.
He failed to meet the payments, and last
spring Everhart turned the ranch over to
Richard Giiniold, and ordered Gloss to leave.
Gloss refused, and the two men have been
living at swords’ points.
Yesterday they quarrelled over a fence,
and Gloss proceeded to Ginnold’s house,
armed with a revolver. Ginuold came to
his door, and ss he did so Gloss shot him
in the breast. Ginnold’s brother-in-law
handed Ginnold a shotgun, and thus armed
the wounded man staggered out to met his
foe. Gloss fired again, but the shot did not
take effect, and Ginnold, in return, fired
the contents of both barrels of tho shotgun
into Gloss’s stomach. He fell to the ground,
but not liefore, had fired two more bullets
into Grinnold’s body.
The families of both men had been eye
witnesses to the dreadful affair, and when
both men fell they were taken care of by
their respective families. Gloss diel in a
few minutes. Giunold lived a few hours.

SHE MET DR. HOLMES.
A Young lady from the South Who
Wanted to Know the Yankee Poet.
From the Washington Herald.
A Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune tells the following pleasant
story of a lady well known here: “Dr.
Holmes is an immense favorite throughout
the South, as Miss Page, the sister of Mrs.
Thomas Bryau, of your city, once uncon
sciously toll! him. She was visiting another
sister, who is the wife of a professor at Har
vard, and, at a gathering of the literati,
heard seme one sav Dr. Holmes was present.
“Where is he.'" she asked with enthusi
asm. “Do show me.”
"I do not see him,” said the little gentle
man, to whom sue was speaking. He was a
very little gentleman, with a face like a
winter apple, a pair ot twinkling brown
eves and a merry smile, but his name she
had not heard.
“Oh.” she said, “I am so anxious to meet
him. You know he is such a favorite in the
“Indeed,” he answered, evidently greatly
surprised. “I thought Yankee principles
and Yankee literature were just the reverse
She smiled her own hriliiant smile.
“Perhaps you are not altogether wrong,
but of this I can assure you, no Southern
gentleman’s library is considered complete
without the ‘Autocrat of tbe Breakfast
He positively colored up and looked con
fused and just then someone laid a hand on
his shoulder and sail:
But Miss Page, through her blushes, told
“It is all true, and you must accept the
compliment au pied de la lettre, for I did not
know to whom 1 spoke.”
