New York’s Rich Men.
In endeavoring to arouse New York
to assert its claims to the world’s fair,
the World publishes a list of the mil
lionaires of ths metropolis. The World
says there are at least 125 citizens of
New York whose income equals or
exceeds $*50,000 a year. Its list is
headed by John Jacob Astor, with
William W. Astor second, Jay Gould
third and Cornelius Vanderbilt fourth.
Wiliam K. and Frederick W. Vander
bilt come next. Seventeen ladies are
included in the list, Mrs. Moses Taylor
ranking first. The World also names
no business houses in New York,
each of which is rated at $1,000,000
or more by the commercial aeencies.
This showing presents an aggrega
tion of wealth which is practically in
comprehensible. In no other city of
the world could an equal number of
individuals be found who represent so
much money. The Duke of West
minster is the richest of Englishmen,
and he is rated at $50,000,000. There
are at least ten men in New York
worth more than that. Mr. Thomas
G. Shearman, in an article which will
appear in the October Forum, states
that there are seventy names in this
country which represent an aggregate
wealth of $2,700,000,000, or an aver
age of more than $37>5 00 > 000 eac b
This estimate includes Trinity church
New York, which is worth $150,000,-
000. Mr. J. J. Astor is credited with
the same amount. Mr. Shearman
says the average income of the richest
hundred Englishmen is about $4S°>
000, while the average annual income
of the richest hundred Americans
exceeds $1,200,000. Mr. Shearman
believes that one half of the wealth of
the United States is owned by 25,000
persons. In no other country has
wealth ever been accumulated so rap
idly or .the tendency to its concentra
tion developed so fast.—Telegraph.
the new prize story
is eagerly sought for, read with pleasure or dis
appointment, is then tossed aside and forgot
ten. But ladies who read of Dr. Pierce's fa
vorite Prescription, read it again, for they dis
cover in it something to prizo-a messenger of
Joy to those suffering from functional derange
ments or from any of tho painful disorders or
weaknesses peculiar to their sex. Periodical
pains, internal inflammation and ulceration,
Icucorrhea and kindred ailments readily yield
to its wonderful curative and healing powers.
It ife the only medicine for women, sold by
druggists, under a positive gnarantoo
from the manufacturers, that it will give satis
faction in every case, or money will be re
funded. This guarantee has been printed on
the bottle-wrappers, and faithfully carried out
for many years. 81.00 by druggists, or six
bottles for |6.00.

Bill Nye’s Souvenir of Pocahontas.
Bill Nye claims to have in his pos
session a letter written by Pocahontas
to her father, the great chief Powhat
an. It runs as follows :
Dear Paw—You ask me to come to
you before another moon. I will try
to do so. When Powhatan speaks his
daughter tumbles to the racket.
You say that I am too soft on the
pale-faced Smith. I hope not. He
is a man, and bears a great name. I
see that in the future my people must
yield to the white man.
Our people now are now pretty
plenty and the pale-face seldom, but
the day will come when the red men
will be scattered like the leaves of the
forest, and the Smith family will run
the entire ranch.
Our medicine man, the one we hire
by the month and found, tells me that
after a time the Powhatan tribe will
disappear from the face of the earth,
while the Smith will extend their busi
ness all over the country, till you can’t
throw a club at a yellow dog without
hitting one of them.
My policy, therefore, is to become
solid with the majority. A Smith may
some day be chief cook and bottle-
holder of this country. We may want
to get some measure through thecoun-
And speaking of measures, you (ell
me you have quit drinking in a meas
ure. I am glad of it, if it is that peck
measure you use to imbibe your fire
water from. It is too much of a jag
lor aa old man like you.
As to loving the gander-shanked
pale-lace, J. Smith, I hope you will
give yourself no unnecessary loss of
sleep nor miss your daily ration of
baked dog on that account. He is as
homely as a cow-shed struck with a
club and has two wives and three pairs
of twins in Europe.
Fear not, noble dad. Your little
Pocahontas has the necessary instinct
to paddle her own canoe, and don’t
you forget it.
Remember me to Brindle Dog and
his squaw, the Sore-Eyed Sage Hen,
and send me a new dolman and two
plugs of tobacco. Ta, ta.
