, An appraisement has been com
, pk'ted of the art property of the
. late Airs. 2Iary J. Morgan, of JTer
York, and it reveals tlie most as
tounding frauds perpetrated upon
that monomaniac purchaser of
pictnies, china, jewels and other
decorative objects. The executors
f?nd that she expended a total sum
of quite $.",000,000 for ornamental
things, including great extravagance
in orchids; and the rareful estimate
by experts of the amount likely to
be realized through auction sales is
only $500,000. Taking into account
the difference naturally expected
between auction price3and those
fairly charged by retail dealers, the
calculation is that Mrs. Morgan
fooled a,vay not less than $2,000,000.
The disclosures are wonderful. She
seems to have been crazed by her
passion for beautiful articles, and to
nave exaiiea ner desire in propor
tion to the sums demanded for them,
quite regardless of intrinsic worth.
Agents took advantage of her weak
ness to impose upon her. Suits to
recover some of the money thus ob
tained from her are to be instituted
in the instances where false repre
sentations can be clearly shown and
the sellers are financially responsi
ble. A favorite method" of duping
her was to represent that ceramics,
of fine yet not unique character,
had been bought at enormous trouble
and expense from the private col
lections of European or Asiatic
aristocrats. In that way she was
induced to pay $5,000 to $10,000 a
piece for china not worth more than
as many hundreds. For one small
vase she gave $15,000. Another
vase. fiEtirincr at $8,000. in nro1v
worth $500 in the market She spent
a round $1,000,000 for paintings
which possess only a fraction of that
salable value. Sometimes the gain
ers by her gullibility as to pictures
were the artists and sometimes
dealers. But it was in precious
stones that she suffered the heaviest
losses. On the averago she paid
double prices, for, while some were
regularly purchased at the counters
of honorable merchants, many
were foisted upon her bv rascally
operators. Still, certain "Broadway
firms are inculpated. The executors
are willing to sell the entire collec
tion of jewelry at one-third the sum
that Mrs. Morgan paid out. Instan
ces of downrightswindlinghave come
to light. A gambler, reduced to his
last diamond a big one, worth
about $1,000 had it curiously set in
an original manner, took it to her,
related how the gem had been
brought by him from Brazil, where
it had been the property of Dom
Pedro, and thereby sold it to her for
$0,000. A hoop of gold set with
three diamonds is offered for sale
at $30,000 less than she paid for it.
Mrs. Morgan had an incurable
malady, and was aware that she
would inevitably die soon. Site
aimed to get as much pleasure as
possible during her remaining days,
and her reckless expenditures were
for that purpose. "While lying in her
invalid chair, she would have a pict
ure, piece of pottery, or some other
beautiful thing, placed before her
for contemplation; and they were
usually changed every hour as long
as she found diversion in trazing a!
them. When her disease arrived
at a stage that threatened to confine
her to her bed, she gave orders for a
sumptuous decoration of a chamber
and a couch, with furniture and
walls set with jewels and painted
with the fineness of a Meissonier can
vas; and this work, which would
have cost $100,000, was barelv be
mm when she died more suddenly
than she had expected. She was the
widow of the founder of the Morgan
line of steamers, who left $7,000,000
to her. The estate is not now ex
pected to yield more than $3,000,000
Equal to the Emergency.
A short time since a gentleman
who lived in a small town not far
from Buffalo went the way of all
flesh, and the burial ceremonies to
be performed over his remains were
committed to the charge of a local
undertaker. The funeral was quite
an important one, for the gentleman
was prominent in his own town and
a number of his friends from the
city were present. The services
wero hold in the church, but just as
the time arrived for taking the re
mains to theceraetery,a severethun-der-storm
came up and it was consid
ered best not to start until the worst
of the storm was over. The wait
was rather an embarrassine one, bat
the undertaker was equal to the
emergency. Standingon thecbancel
steps he shouted so as to be heard
in the choir loft at the other end of
the building: "The organists will
please give us a little music to while
away the time." Even the mourn
ers smiled. Buffalo Express.

I The Burglar' Christmas Ere.
Tony Flash could scarcely remem
ber when he was an honest man. He
didn't think, indeed, he had ever
been anything but a thief ever since
he was a boy. But he never liked
to think about his boyhood. He
swore terribly if anybody spoke
about his mother to him.
And so midnight, this Christmas
eye, found him engaged in his profes
sional duty of "cracking a crib."
He wa3 in a house that belonged to
and was occupied by another citizen.
That citizen and his family were
sleeping the sleep of unsuspecting
innocence. But Tony Flash did not
waste the lone, starry hours in sleep,
love. That was just when he made
his best time, right on the midnight
stretch. He had been pretty thor
oughly through the citizen's house,
and his canvas bag was full of swag,
silver spoons and tea things, silk
dresses, costly furs, some watches
and little articles of escritoire and
bijouterie and such little parterre.
He is about ready to depart, but
pauses near the fireplace, wondering
if he had not better step into an
adjoining bedroom, and knock the
party who is snoring in the head
before (s)he wakens some of the fam
ily. The bell in the spire of Saint
Mammon's tolls twelve.
What was there in the vibrant
tones of the midnight bell that fell
upon the burglar's callous heart
like a voice from long ago? Some
thing that awakened echoes long
silent; something that touched a
chord long vears unresponsive. His
hand trembled. "What's this?" he
whispered to himself. "Am I a
woman?" His eye3 fell upon a row
of wrinkled, dimpled little stockings
hanging beside the fireplace. The
shape of the little feet was still there,
thoiipll th ctnolrincra Vmlornrl nTld
bunched with the little toys thrust in
them. The robber looked at them.
"This is Christmas eve," he said
under his breath, "I had forgotten."
Ay, long years had he forgotten, but
it all comes to him now. lie presses
his brawny hand upon his heart to
still its beating, and his eyes are
chained to the little stockings. In
the next chamber he can hear the
soft breathing of the little ones who,
in sweet, childish confidence, had
hung them there. He was once a
child himself, innocent as they; had
he forgotten it? He had children of
his own, young and fairas they. Did
he forget them? His heart gave a
bound like like a frightened hare.
His little ones 1 In that moment he
passed through a bath of fire.
"Good enough," he muttered
hoarsely, "just the thing for the
And with one quick movement of
his muscular arm the robber swept
the whole line of stockings into hi3
treasury pack, and, hurrying noise
lessly down-stairs, stepped lightly
over the prostrate figure of a vigilant
policeman asleep on the front stoop,
and disappeared in the direction of
his favorite fence. Brooklyn Eagle.

Over in England in a great house
thirty or forty servants is no unusual
number, and when there is a house
party, as many as 100 arc often as
sembled,foreachguestbringshisown servant, and the various valets and
maids, the extra coachmen and
grooms, make up a company that
rivals the array in the drawing room
for pretension and p?ide; for all
these especially the uppor servants
must be placed according to the
rank of their masters. The servant
of a duke, of course, precedes the
servant of an earl, and the valet of
an ambassador naturally goes before
the gentleman of a mere envoy.
They are usually called by the
names of their "masters, so as to
settle at once this point of prec
Smythkins is very superstitious.
