Garret exacted tho iribute^diio his station. 1\ sou him go in tho 'groat Baltimore & Ohio Building was like witnessing th entry of some king. Obsequious at/ temlants salaamed profusely, employe removed their hate and overythlug wa hushed mid nttoiition. To.all his cm ploycs he was the samo dictatorial mar A stpi-y that is related almost daily i •Baltimore is this: A laborer went I Mr. Garrott, ivnd, with tears, eoui plained that his wages were not onoug to support liis family, oven in the scan tiest way. "What I get don't even pay for on bread and butter," said the man. "Well, what of that?" asked th President. "A man of your statio doesn't iified butter." But Mr. Garrett had iimny friends Ho was a freo giver to charity and b; his will a vovomio of $5(5,000 a yeav J set apart for benevolence. The fun for-this vo\;omie is the 30,000 shares o the Baltimore & Ohio stock which luiv been frequently referred to in the dis patches about the deal. Eighty years ago an awkward, un gainly country boy was keeping stor for his uncle in Anno Aruiulul County about forty miles from Baltimore. H was shrewd and attentive. Ho mad more money out of the store tlmii hi uncle had ever done. When ho was 2 his uncle asked him if ho would like t go into business for himself. Ho re plied that ho did not have mono; enough. His uncle ollcred to star him. The result was that the youiij man took a warehouse near that of th uncle and succeeded'so well that in i year or so ho was able to. buy his uncl out. His fortune grew .'rapidly. H never misapplied so much as a cent Every penny was precious in his eyes Money-making 'becumo his mania wealth his one desire. Oh a certaii occasion, after much talk, he pei-suadec a man to let him have n. 50-cent nrticl for 40 cents. "Why is it," asked-a friend, "that a man of your great wealth should wan to add a few cents lite that to* his for tune." "The pleasure of possession, sir; thi pleasure of possession," was his reply The shrewd, stingy man was Johns Hopkins. His business foresight was almost an inspiration. He never las money in an investment. He saw the future of the Baltimore & Ohio road He bought largely of its stock. Tlii. brought him in close relationship witl John W. Garrott. The two becaiui firm friends. They were the mono; powers of Baltimore. '—Philadelphia Press. STUART'S CARBOLIC ACID TROCHES certain cure for sore throat, coug colds and hoarseness.
