Mrs. *nn Ham man Rutherword in 1903.
The legacy of marital unhappiness
was passed along to their daughter,
Consuek*. who was married to the
duke of Marlborough, and recently
was separated from him.
There also Is a divorce in the fam-

Of all the Vanderbilt clan, however,

Slave Market Still Active in New York
THAT human beings are still a
salable commodity in this country
is evinced by the way in which of-
fers have been coming in to E. T.
O'Loughlin for the privilege of buy-
ing the man who is for sale. Over a
score of offers have been received.
The man. as advertised in a newspa-
per, is sober, industrious and an ex-
pert mechanic. Unable to obtain
work, he came to Mr. O'Loughlin and
offered to sell himself for board, cloth-
ing and a small amount of tobacco. If
his services proved satisfactory, the
man also desired to bring his wife's
child to live with him, although that
was not a necessary stipulation.
Offers to buy the man came to Mr.
O'Loughlin in many different ways.
Telephone calls, personal visits and
letters brought in the offers. All ex-
press a willingness on the part of the
bidder to give the man shelter, food,
clothing, tobacco, and even in a num-
ber of cases a slight remuneration. A
remarkable fact, according to a
statement made by Mr. O'Loughlin, is
that none of the offers are from fac-
tories or corporations. Private in-
dividuals are the inquirers in every
case, and for the great part, they are
persons with no great wealth.
On the point of his treatment Mr.
O'Loughlin has made up his mind
there shall be no question. The con-
tract of the purchasers will be cast
iron. Ample food, $70 worth of cloth-
ing, good quarters and smoking to-
bacco will all be stipulated.
-Whereupon he instantly drew his

out the United States and has author-
ized them to sell It for the small suji
of 25 cts. a bottle. He says these
pellets contain no opium, morphine, co-
caine cr other harmful drugs, and he
guarantees that they will relieve the
head, throat and lungs almost imme-
diately. He gives this guarantee with
each bottle of biB medicine: "If you
buy my Cold Cure and It does not give
perfect satisfaction, I will refund your
rnoney." Prof Munyon has just issued

A Black Eye for Home.
It is a coming fashion to hire a ball
to entertain your friends, to give din-
ner parties in a hotel, to be married
in a church, to be taken to a bospstal
when you are sick and to an under-
taker's as soon as you die. and left
there until the funeral. The tendency
is to conduct all public occasions
away from home. The home is get-
ting a black eye.—Atchison (Kan.)
A friend of Pat's was caught in a
shower near his cottage and asked
shelter from the elements. Pat opened
the door. One of the first things the
friend saw was rain coming steadily
! through a hole in the roof.
"Pat, boy," said he, "for why don't
ye fix th' hole in th' roof?"
"The hole in the roof, is it?" asked
Pat, spearing for an excuse. "Oh, yis
I would, ye know, but whin th' rain
is comin' in I can't fix it, an' whin it
don't rain it don't need fixin ."
Car Graveyard in Gotham a Busy Place

they are sent to the graveyard, which
I is the swampy land that adjoins the
t Oak Point freight yards.
Lately they have been burning the
j cars there, which has caused the fire-
j men a good deal of trouble, as people
* have turned in alarms on seeing the
burning cars. The roads up there are
not very good and more than one piece
I of fire apparatus has been bogged,

a complaint to Chief Croker about

Fashionable young women who
are members of St. George's Pro
testant Episcopal church have opened
a model flat in one of the most crowd-
ed districts of the East side, the object
being the instruction of the young
girls of the neighborhood in the cor-
rect methods of furnishing and caring
for a home. The model fiat, of three
rooms, is located on the top floor of
a building on Stanton street occupied
by the New York Protestant Episcopal
City Mission society.
Attractive In every way is the little
domicile, from the window box at the
front window to the shining kitchen
stove and tinware. The entire cost
of furnishing was $150.
i The instruction afforded by the mod
ONLY GOT BACK HIS OWN.
The chief thereupon informed the
railroad people that If they wished to
burn cars they must first notify him
and also get a permit from the bureau
of combustibles, which would detail
two Eien to superintend the work and
also watch the fire alarm boxes.
Now after a car is condemned it
is sent to the repair shops and dis-
mantled of all movable fittings. It is
then put aboard a flat car and run out
to the graveyard by the wrecking
train. When it arrives there it is lifted
ofT the flat car by the wrecker's der-
rick and then set afire.
There was a time once when the
railroad gave people living in the
neighborhood permission to chop up
the cars and use the wood as fuel, but
more of the iron went than the wood
and the permission was revoked. The
next morning after the cars are
burned railroad employes sift the
ashes for the iron, which the railroad
Umbrella Had Long Been Absent from
Ita Proper Hall Tree.
"Stories about umbrellas." said a
New York physician, when that use:'
article was the .subject of discussion,
"are as numerous as fish stories, an1
often test just as severely the
credulity of those who listen to them
This is a true one: A patient tele-
phoned an hour after he had been a-
my office one morning that he had left
his umbrella on the hall rack; would I
see that it was kept for him? My
servant found it, and that evening
while we were at dinner he called, got
the umbrella nad came in to thank me
There he told a long story as to how
he valued the umbrella because he had
carried it a long time, and it was jus*
the right weight and showed a dent
in the silver handle which had been
made by his little boy when he used it
as a hockey stick. I saw my wife
smile while the story was being told.
She understood my wink, however,
and we said nothing. But when the
man had gone away with the umbrella
under his arm we laughed, for we had
recognized the umbrella which I had
carried out and never brought back
more than three years ago."
el flat is not merely in the form of
an object lesson. Children and young
girls of the neighborhood are Instruct-
ed in all kinds of household labor, and
are taught the way to do household
tasks economically as well as correct-
ly. The children are taught in morn-
ing classes, while at night there are
classes for girls who are about to b«
married. When the students of house-
hold labor enter the model flat every-
thing is in disorder. It is their task
to rearrange everything, make the
beds, air the rooms, sweep and dust,
under direction of a teacher.
After everything is in order the chil-
dren are then taught how to cook a
workingman's dinner. They then sit
down and eat what they have cooked,
after which they wash the dishes and
put everything away In orderly fash-
ion. This consitutes the lesson for the
Besides the usual cooking, there i9
instruction in cooking for children and
invalids. Laundry work is also taught
in detail. The older girls go througk
the same course of instruction.
But a Change of Food Gave Relief.
Many persons are learning tha*
drugs are not the thing to rebuild
worn out nerves, but proper food is
There is a certain element in the
cereals, wheat, barley, etc., which fs
grown there by nature for food to brain
and nerve tissue. This is the phos-
phate of potash, of which ,Grape-Nu*3
food contains a large proportion.
In making this food all the food ele-
ments in the two cereals, wheat and
barley, are retained. That is why so
many heretofore nervous and run down
people find in Grape-Nuts a true nerve
and brain food.
"I can say that Grape-Nuts food has
done much for me as a nerve renew
er," writes a Wis. bride.
"A few years ago. before my mar
riage, I was a bookkeeper in a larg<?
firm. I became so nervous toward the
end of each week that It seemed I
must give up my position, which I
could not afford to do.
"Mother purchased some Grape-Nuts
and we found it not only delicious bu'
I noticed from day to day that I was
improving until I finally realized I was
net nervous any more.
"I have recommended it to friends
as a brain and nerve food, never hav
ing found its equal. I owe much to
Grape-Nuts as it saved me from a
nervous collapse, and enabled me to
retain my position."
