THE SUNDAY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 26, '1890.-TWENTY-F(0UR PAGES. II MEN AT PLAY. Fads, Diversions, and Sports That Ease Their Minds of Care. Many Like Poker, but Mr. Piatt Prefers Cats, and Cyrus Field Chickens. Chauncey M. Depew believes that railroad presidents know how to enjoy themselves in their leisure moments after business hours more than any other class of men in the country. He told the other day of a set of them which had solid comfort every evening. This particular gathering like to play whist, and occasionally will take a hand at poker, but always for small stakes. The action of the game smooths out -the wrinkles and wipes out the friction of the day's work. In only one ease did Mr. Depew know where the rum bottle was patronized with, any degree of liberality. ' As for himself, says the New York Sun, Mr. Depew has the keenest and most sincere enjoyment when he gets home after a hard day, and has a chat and a romp with his little son Chauncey, whom he addresses as "Buster." Mr. Depew's son is a fair faced boy of 12, with a complexion of a society bud and the refined ways of a delicately natured girl. Mr. Depew never meets him that he does not bend over and kiss him. He does this whether it is on the street or in his office at the Grand Central station or at his home, and anybody could not see him without knowing instantly that this man who has stood before presidents, kings, emperors, queens and princes, is as fond of this boy as he is of his own life. The applause of political gatherings may be keenly appreciated by this man, but his little son "Buster" is the fondest spark in his life. Ex-Senator Thomas C. Piatt has a collection of cats which he would not part with for a nation. One of these cats is of the tiger breed, big and gentle, and rejoices in the name of Julius. This cat up to a short time ago was the chief point of interest at Mr. Piatt's country home at Highland Mills. Ko meal was taken in that house that Julius was not a favored guest at the table. He had an infant's high chair expressly for his use, and when the meal was announced Julius would put in an appearance and jump into this high chair. He may have been chasing robins on the lawn or lolling on the porch, but he was always the first to the table. He sits op straight and the waitress ties around his throat an embroidered bib. Julius is one of the most polite cats on earth. He is not fond of soup or fish, or entrees and the like, but he knows full well when the course is over and the next should be brought on. He looks around the table, and without a word or suggestion he puts out his paw and by a gentle stroke on the table bell summons the waitress to clear away the course and bring on the next. He waits for the roast, and then his special feast of sponge cake is put before him in a Levres saucer. He eats with better manners than some folks, and does not leave the table till coffee is served.. Mr. 1'laH takes endless delight in Julius and the six other cats on the farm, but Julius is the king pet of them all and could not receive greater consideration if he were the ex-senator's eldest son. Cyrus W. Field, the man who lost $5,000,-000 in 24 hours in Wall street without a murmur, has 1,000 chickens on his farm at Ardsley, which interest him now quite as I much as the great project of the Atlantic cable did over twenty-five years ago. Mr. Field has several acres of this farm planted with thousands of sunflowers, and just about this time his assistant farmers are gathering them and laying them away as fodder for the chickens in cold weather. Mr. Field has one of the finest henneries in the country, and devotes more time to it than to his financial enterprises. Stephen Van Cullen White, the Wall street banker, can be found at his home in Brooklyn on any clear night star-gazing. He has an observatory, valuable telescopes, and often up to dawn this busy man sweeps the heavens with his instruments. He is one of the best amateur astronomers in the country, and at one time president of the American Astronomical society, which has since become a part of the Brooklyn Institute. The theater, opera and society in general have few attractions for him. He would rather discover a comet than make another fortune in a Lackawanna deal, thinker, is as fond of society as a debutante. When he is well he likes to have his home in Lexington avenue ablaze with lights and all the young people about him. He is fond of providing pleasant dinners for them, to be cucceeded by the german, and only a year ago he attended a fancy dress ball at the Academy of Design in costume. It is often remarked by friends of Mr. Hewett, who eee him in his home life that the politicians would scarcely know this man or understand his gentle and kindly ways and his inordinate desire to hare all the young people around him have a happy time. Russell Sage, for the 30 years he has lived in New York, has driven every morning and evening except Sunday through the park. He is an early riser, and is out on the road long before other people have had their breakfasts. He is an expert driver, and his chief ambition now is to learn how to handle a four-in-hand drag. He is constantly on the lookout to secure four horses which will trot evenly together. Then he is to train them, get the drag, and do something which has been with him these many years. Mr. Sage in his drives gives never a thought to Wall street matters. He is in a different world, and says that nothing on earth can please him as much as a fast trotter. Besides the horses and the green trees remind him of the days, now 70 years ago, when he was a farm lad in the Mohawk valley. Jay Gould, it is well known, will not be disturbed by business matters after he leaves the Western Union building in the afternoon; He has three pet ways of enjoying himself, and while he does not exert himBelf to manifest his thorough appreciation of them, it is certain that underneath his calm exterior they bring many happy momenta to him. The first is his yacht, the Atalanta, which in summer time takes him from the city to his home at Irvington. Speaking of these trips to and from the city, it should be incidentally mentioned that a chief source of delight to Mr. Gould is his thoughts as to how many owners of brick sloops and cement schooners will bring suit against him for damages on the following day. If the brick sloops lose a dozen brick or a marlingspike, and if the cement craft lose a barrel of cement as the Atalanta passes, they always bring suit, claiming that the damage was wrought by the powerful wash of the Atalanta. Mr. Gould almost grins at the constant repitition of these suits, as a little investigation has always proved that the owners of the sloops and schooners know when the Atalanta passes, and they fondly believe that Mr. Gould will be bothered defending the suits for modest damages which they may bring against him. The next source of enjoyment, and possibly the greatest to Mr. uould. is flowers. He is an accom plished botanist, and thinks as much of Hovers as the gentlest woman in the land. He has a fine conservatory, and the choicest blossoms are always before him winter and summer. Mr. Gould also thinks that great good can come out of a circus. He is just as fond of a circus as in the day when he stole under the tent-flaps of the old-fashioned circus which visited his native town. Col. Calvin S. Briee, senator from Ohio. and chairman of the national Democratic committee, likes society and a quiet and moderate game of draw poker. Col. Brice's ocietv set is quite as exclusive as the num ber of gentlemen he invites to play cards with him. William K. Vanderbilt will dance the ger man all night until broad daylight. Collector Erhardt, Daniel G. Rollins. Col. George Bliss and Surveyor Lyon believe with Col. Brioe that an occasional game of poker, even if it is for beans, is the quickest " and best method for driving political and business fogs out or tne neaa. inese gen-omor have more intense enjoyment in 1 winning a few beans from each other than . if theyhad secured the presidential nomi- .attin Frederic P.

But at sundown all signs of this friction disappear, and Mr. vhcoii nurnes awav to ins tarm. r tJJ Benedict and other intimates guy him and ask him what he is getting for his hay and potatoes, but the relaxation and diversions of his farm far outweigh the gibes of hid Tnenas. jar. Uicott's pleasure is in contem plating a good Deach - croo. and. while many disappointments in this respect have come to him, the pleasure of anticipation that he will some nne summer strike it resembles, pernaps, the unhealthy expectancy of the young man who has a ticket in the lotterv. dreaming of what he will do with the first prize when he gets it. But not all of Mr. Oleott's joy is in contemnlatinir a crosrjective Deach crop, He has a fine stud farm also, and some ofj tnese days it will doubtless produce a run ner or a trotter that will make the present records hum, and the joy of this anticipa tion, together with the unmcasurable happi ness he has in other parts of his farm, makes this man a most serene and companionable noBt. , Frederic R. Coudert is also Quite a farmer. In the summer months all his neighbors at Metuchen are interested in his doings. ,' He nas a nne collection of ALderncys and other fine cattle, and the sturdy acumen which Mr. Coudert exercises in the purchase or sale of a calf is part of the play spell of his life. CoL Dan Lamont takes it out in trout fishing. In the spring and fall he wades the streams of Central and Northern New York from sunrise to sunset. If there is any harder work on earth than this to the aver-age citizenit has yet to be discovered, but it is joy profound and all pervading to CoL Lamont. This man from a country boy at his home in MacC'rawville has been bored, by display and state ceremoniaL He would rather cast a fly for trout than eat. f " Joseph J. O'Donohue has a fine billiard room at his home, and every night after dinner, no matter what the outside engagement may be, he dons a blazer and punches the ivories with his nephew, CoL O'Donohue, of Gov. Hill's staff. It is in no spirit of captious criticism to remark that Mr. O'Donohue might play for a century and his nephew would go on walloping him with ease, but the delight the coffee king has in his diversion is not burdened with a scrambling ambition to become p.a expert. - Horace C. Du Val will work all day in President Depew's office at the Grand Central station and parade ail night with the Seventh regiment. No institution or organization on the glolo is like unto the Seventh for . Lieut. Du Val. On Saturday afternoons at the skirmishes of his company on the Yonkers hillside, what maddening joy it is for Lieut. Du Val to be dragged through the bushes and brambles! What elysium comes to him when his dandy uniform is ripped and tattered, and his fine face is scratched, and he returns to town battered but still enthusiastic. The regiment is his chief joy and yachting the next. When he cannot do either he writes essays and novelettes for magazines; and when football season eomes he attends every scramble far and near, and only wishes he was in the thickest of the fracas. . And o the story might go on to indefinite length. Judges, clergymen and all the other 600 prominent New Yorkers have their diversions and pastimes. Cribbage, backgammon, the opera, the theater, bowling, Dante classes, driving, baseball for it will be remem be red that the only diversion of Gov. Hill's busy life is watching a slashing game of ball classical studies, paintings and sculpture, devotion to ancient tapestries and numismatics, all these and more absorb the attention in leisure moments of the conspicuous men of New York. LANDING A CABLE'S SHORE E"Dl We steamed off and anchored as near inshore as we could get, opposite the spot intended for the landing place. All was now activity on board. No sooner were we at anchor than a couple of boats were dispatched for the beach, with a party of men and the necessary tools and implements for use on shore. On board, both picking-up and paying-out gear were being made ready for action, as they both played their part in landing the shore end; huge coils of rope and a number of collapsed air-balloons made their appearance from below. - These balloons were inflated with air to their full diameter of some three or four feet, and the quarter-deck of the Dalmatia began to assume the appearance of a giant's toyshop. Meanwhile the shore party had firmly anchored to the beach two large "spider-sheaves," or skeleton iron pulleys. These were placed some two or three hundred feet apart, forming two angles of a parallelogram, of which the bow and stern sheaves of the ship made the other two. A rope was now carried from the stern of the ship to the shore, and, passing round both spider Bheaves, brought back to the ship and taken over the bow sheave to the picking-up gear. The cable was made fast to the rope and paid out slowly over the stern, the picking-up gear meanwhile heaving in on the other end of the rope, and so hauling the cable gradually ashore. The rope was wound four or five times round the big drum of the picking-up gear, steam was turned on, and the drum, rumbling and reverberating, hauled the rope in; aft, the cable was wound four or five times round the paying-out drum, also revolved by steam in order to ease the strain, which, with about a mile of rope out between the ship's stern and her bow. is something considerable. As the cable leaves the stern, the raison d'etre of the air balloons become apparent. At intervals of about 15 or 16 yards one is securely lashed to the cabje, and in this way the cable is floated from the ship to the shore and not dragged along the bottom to run the risk of being damaged by rocks. Another advantage is that, if the cable is sagged by a cross current or tide, it can readily be straightened by stopping the paying-out, and heaving-in at the bows.

There is a well-founded rumor that the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railway is to reach Trinidad, Col., in a few months, in a direct airline from the East, through Kansas.

The claim of the heirs of Benjamin Franklin to the Boston Franklin fund is understood to be based on the legal point that, as the fund was not instituted as a charity, the testator could not legally provide for its continuance for a longer period than 25 j years and that it must therefore revert to the heirs. This removes the awful suspicion that proof was to be adduced that the eminent philosopher was of unsound mind and incapable of making a will. Boston Herald. !

Amelie Rives-Chanler is Studying Art Quietly in Parle. Mrs. Amelie Rives-Chanler is still studying art in Paris, according ,to the last ac counts received, says the Illustrated Ameri can. She is living very quietly, and is trying to avoid the consequences of the notoriety gained by "The Quick or the Dead?" Fame is one thing, notoriety another, she has discovered. One of the consequences of notoriety is that some people seem to think that she has no longer any rights to privacy as an individual that they are bound to respect, and this mistake on their part was productive of many annoy ances at first. Mrs. Chanler's art studies have not yet resulted in a picture that has been exhibited publicly. She made no. attempt last spring to have a picture hung, although it was expected that she would do so. Among her fellow students she is very popular. "She is just as if she had , never done anything," one of them said. "She is simple, modest, and unaffected, and makes many friends. Ji.ven without knowing wno she was rou could not fail to be impressed the first time you saw her."

Old Dutch People The Count of Paris ; JlHugh O. Pentecost, the "' .. - Ex-Minister. New Yobk, Oct. 16. (.Special and Copyrighted. J In many respects this is the most pleasing month of the year in the metropolis. The dullness that pertains to the streets in midsummer has been thoroughly overcome by the return of that lively portion of the community that seeks recreation in hot weather at the seashore, in the mountains or on the other side of the Atlantic. Now is the time when women do their "fall shopping," when politicians make their deals, theaters their opening hits and ail men their plans for the year. October is the month that paints the forest in colors of gorgeous hue. Here in New York it begets the general use of red paint at the clubs and hotels. Of course, it is not good form to return to the city before November, according to the creed of McAllister's band, but the solectoi who linger at Lenox are not New Yorkers. The 400 of this city are a good deal like certain British landlords. Absenteeism has made them aliens and of metropolitan life as it throbs in the pulses of this great town they know nothing. Hi t COSSEBVATIVRB. Speaking of the inner circle of New York society reminds me of a recent adventure that befell me. I had occasion not long ago to make a visit to one of the poorest tenement districts of the East side. On my return I passed through a shabby-looking street, the houses of which had evident! y once made some pretensions to elegance. In fact, there was a time when that same street was inhabited by the aristocrats of the town. It bears a name noted in the historical and social annals of New York. On one of the houses a three-story brick affair, with trimmings of white marble was this sign: 'Myndert Van V , Beilhanger." My curiosity was aroused and I entered the shop of this workman with the old-time name. He was a typical Hollander in appearance. I told him I was Dutch on my mother's side, and he became quite confidential, showed me his coat-of-arms, and finally took me up stairs to meet his father and mother. I learned from them that the family had been in New York for 250 years, that they had always maintained a knowledge of the tongue ot their ancestors and that even the bell-hangers children could speak and read Holland Dutch. They also said that there were a number of old Dutch families in the neighborhood who still kept up many of the customs pertaining to their ancestors in the days of Petrus Stuyvesant. They were all poor, proud, and wholly unknown to the new generation of so called New York society. On further investigation I find that this little colony of decayed aristocrats is the most uncompromising circle in the metropolis. If you have money you may in time get an entrance into the McAllister circle. Unless, however, yon can prove that you possess a pure strain of ol Dutch blood you can never gain the friendship of Myndert Van V , the bell hanger and his immediate neighbors. AST rWCBOWWID KISO. Is New York really a Democratic city? Surely the adulation paid to the count of Paris and his son would indicate that there is a well developed tendency toward monarchical forms among certain metropolitans. Of course, it is all very well to say that the count is being feted because he was a staunch friend of the Union, but is that the only motive for this widespread applause for a man who comes to us tainted by a most disgraceful political intrigue? By the way, the Due d'Orleans had a lively time while in this city. He is fond of high living and is an epicure of precocious but undeniable talent. One evening he took the Spanish ballet dancer, Otero, out to supper. He then went to one of the leading clubs and saw the sun rise before the pot of red paint was empty. His father is very proud of the boy and smiles at the youngster's escapades. The count is an accomplished linguist and speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German fluently. POTJTTCS. The city is buzzing about candidates. Even religious circles, hitherto free of secular politics, are worked up over the situation. Some time ago. when the Municipal league was first organized, I met Hamilton Fish, Jr. The ministers had just held one of their meetings and come to no conclusion. Fish is not a bumorist, but he gave the new movement a title that clung to it for some time. With a quizzical expression on his face, he remarked: "Weil, the clergymen didn't do much, did they? I fear the Halo and Harp party won't be a success." HUGH PENTECOST. Sneaking of ministers reminds me of a little story I heard recently. Hugh O. Pen tecost, who started out as a eaptust preacner. broke away from his church, ran lor mayor of Newark, N. J., and is now editor of that socialistic organ, the Iwentieth century. He married a very prominent society girl of Hartford, Conn., about 10 years ago. Their wedding was a very Bwell anair. Aiter- wards Pentecost accepted a pulpit- in Brooklyn at a salary of 510,000 a year. Everything seemed bright for the young couple. The wife was handsome and popular, tne preacner was eloquent, earnest and successful. A few nights ago some old friends of Mrs. Pentecost, who had known her in the days when she Bhone as a society belle, went to hear her husband address a crowd of workmgmen on the East TO SAVE SVuOSMEY Save Time and Health. Doctors' bills and druggists' prescriptions are heavy drains on thepocket, not to mention days, weeks, and months of enforced idleness in case of sickness. In many instances all this loss may be saved by the timely use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This medicine, taken in smaller doses than would be required of any other blood-purifier, produces the most positive results; therefore it is economy to Use Only Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Moreover, by taking this medicine in season, you prevent the inroads of disease, keep the blood pure, and the system uniformly strong ana vigorous. Remember, Prevention is better than cure. But how, it may be asked, is one to know that he needs this medicine? By various Indications ; among them by that tired feeling, by loss of appetite, lack of energy, dull headache and confusion of memory, pains in the limbs, back, and sides, pimples and eruptions on the face and body, weakness of the eyes, restlessness by night, drowsiness by day, and frequent depression of spirits. These, though not diseases in themselves, are symptoms and warnings, which, if not attended to, may result in diseases of the most serious nature. Begin at once to use Ayer's "Ayer's Sarsaparilla gives entire satisfaction to my customers. My wife vised two bottles of it, which did her more good than anv other medicine. Her sallow face has become fresh and rosy. I feel assured that Ayer's Sarsaparilla has completely restored her health. Our family physician recommends Ayer's remedies." Sam'l Stephenson, Pool, AV. Va. "For years I was afflicted with dyspepsia, having very little appetite and being distressed by nearly everything I ate. A druggist recommended a trial of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, of which I am now taking my fourth bottle. The medicine helped me at once, and has continued to help me. I can recommend Ayer's Sarsaparilla as a great remedy in this distressing complaint." Charles G. Maxter, Farmington, Me. Sarsap The Best Blood-Purifier To all sufferers from liver complaint, I would strongly recommend Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was afflicted with liver complaint for nearly two years, until advised to use Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It gave me immediate relief."

Side. Imagine their astonishment when Mrs. Pentecost came out on the stage, and, attired in a most striking garb, sang to the assemblage a revolutionary song. . She has been a most loyal wife. ' She has supported her husband in every step he has taken and has been of great service to him in his rather peculiar career. Considering her former life as a society woman, her" present career as a singer of socialistic songs is picturesque. '.U , ... .J!.,.- ., .... AFTER 'DINNER COCKTAILS. A great effort is made by bar rooms in the lower part of the city to catch the thirsty business man on his way home from dinner. The arts employed in this regard are varied and peculiar. . There, are. two, saloons that claim recognition on the ground that their picture galleries are worthy of note. Other caravansaries tempt the thirsty wayfarer by their low prices. , Still, others serve up a handsome luncheon as a bait for the home-going gudgeon. There is one saloon where fried oysters and scallops are specialties; another that prides itself on its ham and another gives you a fine salad with your tipple. Is it strange that so many New Yorkers reach home at night with 6trong breaths and weak apiietites? Cvktis Kikolaxb. SCHOOL IX THR O.MING ELECTIONS. To tie Editor of the Tribune : ' M uch has already been said upon almost every possible hade of the coming election. I desire to speak yet a few brief words upon one of ite phasesthe importance of the school question. " " " In political campaigns men are apt to magnify the importance of the office of governor, mayor, congressman, almerman, but to attach bo little consequence to the positions npon our school board as to almost lose sight of them. They keep a careful eye upon the candidates for the first-named positions, scanning critically each would-be incumbent as he appears before the public, while the appointments for the members of onrschYl hoard are relegated to a committee, and the majority of our citizens scarce concern themselves to learn the results of the committee's labor. Why this indifference? The one class of officials deals with the material interests of our city, the other with those interests which to every true citizen are beyond money and beyond price too sacred for comparison with any other feature of nor modern civilization the culture of our children, their development into nohle manhood and womanhood. These are the interents which devolve upon our school board. To elpct to its membership, purposely or through carelessness, men who are narrow, prejudiced or bigoted, would be to jeopardize the hieheet interests of our children and of our city. 1 wish especially to impress thi fact upoD ladie. Whenever the helnles and the weak have appealed for sympathy and protect ion, there woman has ever been foremost. Why should she not be foremost in protecting these nurseries of onr youth our public schools? "Why should we leave the quiet and retirement of our own houses to come into contact with rough men at the polls if" .This is the question which springs to woman's bps in reply to onr aifeal for woman's aid. "But what is the daotrerf ' we are asked. Do women know that the old-tfme custom of placing a non-partisan ticket in the field has been abolished' .. ' If women will work for their schools in the coming election let them remember that they must register, that the afternoon of Taesday next is their only opportunity ; that the certificates of registration most be brought by such voters as have changed their precincts since vot ing last. Let every woman remember, too. that she is responsible not only for her own vote, but for the enlightenment of snch lady friends and neighbors as may twwithin her reach. H. M. S. - WOMEN HAVK BRAINS. Last Tuesday forenoon a pleasant-faced lady and a broad-browed, bearded professor were glancing over the numerous volumes arrayed in a Broadway book store. "My answer," she sa'd, "to the question, 'Have Women Brains?? is: 'Look around.' Why, there must bo here at' least- 100 books by female authors, and many of them are superior to books written by men on the same subjects. . They are not ' all novels, either; but many of .the in deal with the highest, deepest, end broadest themes of thought, from astronomy to psychology. It is foolish in these times to sneer at women's brains, especially when visiting a book shop." The professor freely admitted that the remarks of his niece were justified by the display of books bearing women's names on their title page. ie-York WorUL .. I - r i e m m CHEAP AUIillM'M.
