New Market, N. J. .Jan. ; 21.
When William Smith of Nw Mar
ket, fell heir to $150,000 of the Fair
millions bis first investment was in
fast horses.. . Of these he had three
when he became disgnated with this
manner of - spending his money.
The horses were not last enough so
he gave them away. ; O - :
Smith next purchased the only
grocery store in the town, and for
a time he did an enormous trade,
for be sold goods at remarkably low
prices. ..He said be did this to show
peoplehe was a philantbropiet.
In his em ploy was Charles Thorn
ton, a brother-in-law - A few days
ago Smith in one of bis generous
moods pressnted the store, fixtures
stock and busmees to Thornton.
A World reporter visited the store
yesterday; ' Mr Thornton, the new
proprietor, said bis benefactor bad

ing a trip to Califgrniav-A - whiti
whiskered old iarmer drew " the re
porter into conversation. ; ?v -
"Did -you ever see RU; Smith?'
said he.- - -'-1
"No I never had that - pleasure,"
said woe reporter, - -.
Well, rill bet" my last bard
earned dollar that when ne meets
yon the first gosh-dinged thing he
will say will be 'will you have
arioJtr tie said mat to every re
porter that has come near him in
the last few months. ' He is a free
hearted, neighbor i Bill Smith, and
it makes all us fellows feel mighty
blue-when we think he is going to
leavers and go to San Francisco
andTaris. Some say he is going
after more cash, but I don t see how
that can be for he's got more than
any other man in th;s here town,
Leastwise that is -what Bill Bays
and what Bill ays goes.,r
Just then , smith entered the
store and the , xeporter asked . him
the reason of his generosity to
Thornton. bxiv.:. v" H
"Pardon me. - do you . drink?'?
asked Smith. JNo? Well, will
tell you how it was. Thornton has

Jack, was a pociable dog. For
the amusement of guests he would
turn sbmmersaults, jump through a
flami3 hoop : and play - soldier:
Apparent appreciation of art was
a 6errous side of his character.
When ;sho wrt a-- picture he would
contemplate it with rapt attention
for ai long- time. He said his
prayers before the" family' placed
around him his coverlet at.nightv,i
When Jack was stricken three

did not respond to treatment, and

All the efforts of the officials were
directed to, removing the: insane in

with excitement and so panic-stricken
that not only were they , unable
to help themselves, but greatly im

to save them. ; ; ;.
There were nearly 600 Women in

them were safely transferred to. the

were burned in their beds . and the
charred "remains " of Others .'; were
found huddled together in corners
