THE GOULD MAUSOLEUM. Two •Woll-Paid Of3ccr3 Watch It Day and The I,nte Millionaire'* Romalnn Ar« In MitH-iivn To:nl> with ni~ IJronl* Uoorn—.iJnnjr VNlfor/i C'omo to S«« It. ;. More than two years a£° the remains y 1 of Jay Could v/crc deposited in one of 'the eataoornhs of tlie mausoleum at "VVooUkiwn cematery at New Yorlc which had been erected under his own personal supervision nine years before. Among the many beautiful and costly monuments in this country the Gould mausoleum is unquestionably the strongest. The most perfect of bank- brcalcinf,' tools would be required to force an entry through its granite walls or double bronze doors, each of which weighs a ton. The Uotilci family, however, are unwilling to take any chances of a repetition of the A. T. Stewart g-rave-roblnn'j conspiracy, and they have caused the massive resting piace of the bones of the (Treat financier to bo elowlv -riinrdeil by day and by ni^ht. The pvuivds are two well-paid special policemen, ex-Police Captain 0. \V. Oastlin and ex-Pol ice man Richard Holloway. Each does twelve hours' duty in tho twenty-four. ]!y mutual agreement the two watchmen exchange watches every month. At the present time IIol- loivay is on duty fit night, and be remains in the immediate vicinity of the the tomb, sheltered in inclement •weather only by the ' portico of the mausoleum. Woodlawn cemetery is regularly patrolled at night by a watchman, who maizes tho complete round once every hour, recording his movements by means of an automatic clock at each of the three gates. This watchman crosses over Central avenuo, which passes the Gould tomb, and part of 1m duty is to note the presence of tho special watchman, of which ho malrcs a report every morning. Watchman Holloway was seen by a Now York World reporter. "There is nothing to tell,"said he, "except that .±ho captain and I arc employed to watch the tomb. It !:•; a little lonesome nt night, and during the winter and on rainy nights it is very uneoinfortablc. l!ul then there are men who have much worse places. The cei:v.;tery authorities would not, of c.oursi-, permit the erection, of a sonlry box, so whoever i.s THE JAY OOULD MAUSOLEUM AT WOOD- LA Wtf. on the night watch has got to .meet tho weather with rubbers and thick overcoats. "The monotony of the watch at night la broken by the cemetery watchman •who comes around every hour. The regular city mounted policeman also rides through, and ho generally stops to bid tho time of night. In. the summer time th'e job is all right. Then I sit down on the stops of tho tomb and smoke and read by tho light of a lantern, "A man gradually learns to surround himself with little comforts, no matter how be is fixed. For instance, 1 carry a little spirit lamp .out there, and when I feel like it I heat myself a cup of good hot coffee. The day watch is as pitas- ant an outdoor berth as any 7nen would want. Capt. Gastlin and I have been in this po.it. for two years, and in all hat timo I have had no adventure worth speaking of. "Xo attempt has ever been made to molest the tomb. Anybody that tried it would get a good game, 1 have the means for sounding an alarm that would be pretty uear general and could summon all the assistance I might need. "U'hen I am on tho clay watch I have to act as a sort of.guicle and tell visitors all about the mausoleum. I have got the story down very pat, and it dou't take me long to rattle it off. 1 "Thin plot is one acre in extent, and is caJled Lake View, because it overlooks AVoodlawn lake. It cost ?."0,000. The mausoleum cost fSO.OOK and was completed in December. ISSli. Mr, Gould stipulated that it should be as, strong and massive as possible, not pretentiously large, and as simply beautiful as possible. "It is built throughout of granite, is S3 feet long, i- foot wide, and SO feet hi"-h to the apex of the roof. The double doors are of bron.-.e, each section being eight feet high and two feet wide, and weighing one ton each. The interior is iOxTxlo feet. Its coiling is a solid slab of granite weighing six tons. The floor is of one marble slab. The eutaeoinbs are twenty in number, ten on each side. The roof of the structure is of slabs of granite. Tho total weight of the entire mausoleum is 200 tons, and it rests on a concrete foundation eight feet thick."

IT WAS WATER. Shu Canitid n French SrhoolmnHtor to Flco to tho forest nnd Siil)«!st on Herbs. A schoolmaster at Amices, France, married, but after a week of wedded life his mother-in-law, who made hoi- home with them, became so insupportable that, unable longer to endure her tyranny, he rosoU'ed not only to desert the conjugal roof but to break with civili?.:itiou and return to savagery. So lie fleil to a dense forest not far from Amiens, ;vnd there lived for three weeks OTA roots and apples, savs the Xe\v York World. IIo said afterwards that whenever the picture of his home and wife rose in his troubled brain there stepped between tho scepter of his implacable mother-in-law, guarding like the angel with the flaming sword the gate of paradise, aud the thought would send him llyiug into the depths of the forest again to escape fancied pursuit and recapture. Atlast hung-er drove the vegetarian to dosirc another roof than thetroesafford- cdi and more templing food than herbs and apples, so he decided to seek refuge with his own mother, and at her homo found awaiting him papers in a suit for divorce brought by his wife on the ground of desertion. Xovr the courts have freed tho unhappy schoolmaster, who deemed conjugal happiness too dearly purchased at the price of such a mother-in-law. Which Was It? Tho mother of two sons, twins, met one of the brothers m the yard. "AVhich of you i-.vo boys am I talking to?" asked the mother; "is it you or your brother?" •'Why do you nsk?" inquired the lad, prudently. ''Because, if it is your brother, I'll bo.\ his ears.'' "It is not my brother; it is I." "Then 3 - our brother is wearing your coat, because yours had a hole in it," "J\o, mother; I'm -wearing my ovrn coat." "Good heavens," shrieked the mother, looking' him intently; "yon are ycr.ir brother after all."—Texas Sittings. Bat It Win tho Brenlh of Experience Which Klevr Over lt« Surruco. "Been at home visiting the folks," said the young man to the tall man in the tweed suit. "Well, 1 didn't stay- long, for the people of Maine object to drinking and my habits are not strictly temperate." "Got a jag, I suppose," observed the tall man. "Kot at all, sir. I don't drink anything but water. It was my first.glass of water at home which got me m trouble. You know that my father is a strict teetotaler. Never drank even a mug of cider. Well, I used to be that way myself. 1 went home after an absence of three years. Arrived at the old house at dinner time. All the old china and silver had been brought out in my honor, and there was a Alaine dinner about to he served that would have made many a housewife envious to see. " '1 trust, Richard,' said father, 'that in all the years that you have been from home you have not touched that which brings SOITOW to so many homes, deprives th and sows broadcast the seeds of misery and-want:' " 'Xot much,' I said. Then, sir, in less than two minutes afterward I raised a glass of water to my lips, blew across the top of it, said: 'Here's luck, 1 and tossed it off with that grace and abandon -which yon know so well. That's vrhat spoiled my vacation." An iKhind for TortVj. It is snicl that one of the West India islands is inhabited exclusively by turtles, some of which grow .to an enormous size.

JITorse, M. C., on tho Conduct of the Tension I»ur*»«- The national house recently had under consideration a hill making an ap^" proprialion for oension examiners. Congressman Morse, of Massachusetts, addressed the house ou the subject, as follows, lie said: ."1 desire, Mr. Chairman, in the three minutos yielded to rnc, merely to say that 1 indorse all that has been so well said 6y the distinguished gentleman from Xew ,Vork. Mr. Daniels, abuut his experience i» connection with the pcnsioi: department iu his district. Mini; has bo«u exactly the snme.

"L-.ist evening 1 saw the great, army of L ii:p!oyes of that office coming out of that establishment at four o'clock, and \voudi-red to myself what they hail bt-en doing, for my ou-n experience rhduccs me to thin!; that tiie employes in the pension otlico, instead 01 atlcndi:iff to their legitimate duties of adjudicating cases o£ applicants fur pension under the law, arc ut present turned into a smelling corn- miltce, looking all over the country for irnuil, or pretended fraud, in the trrantiii^ auc ' payment of pensions; an.l such examinations as they make are, or seem to be, inspired by the principle 'how r.ot to doit,' judged by progress and results. "I want here and now to call attention of congress and the country to another fact, i e., that the postinas- tcr.i throughout the country—uud I want to know by what authority of law the commissioner of pensions is authorised to do su:h a thing—I say, the postmasters of the country have also beer, turned into a smelling cora- miLtoe to hunt for frauds in connection v/ith pensions. Iu a town iu my district the postmaster called luy attention tori communication received from the pcT.i-.ion office asking him to look lifter pensioners, to see if the pensioners were worthy of pensions, etc. Another point: All applicants for increase of pension in my district receive prompt attention, and have an order promptly to be examined by a medical board. ;uul this arrangement generally results in what? An increase, as the poor pensioner expects? Oh, nn: but in reducing or taking 1 away the little pension altogether. "The employes of the pension office should bu confined, to thuir legitimate duties; and 1 repeat that instead ot ai- tending to their legitimate business thev are largely turned jrom thorn in the manner 1 have- indicated, to the great injury of the pensioners. '•I desire to cull attention to one more unjust decision of the commissioner of pensions, which does a groat wrong to brave men who in the war stood"by the suffering, the wounded and the dying, and rendered patriotic service to the country. I refer to the fact that the acting assistant surgeons, who were pensioned under the act of 1S90, by a decision of that department of the government have been dropped from the pension rolls. "Mr. Chairrnan, I nm neither o. prophet cor the son of a prophet, but more than a year ago I stood in this place, where I now stand, and said that when the people were again heard from in a congressional or national election, they \vo"ld rebuke the administration fo^' its ucj'.ist and unpatriotic conduct toward the union soldiers. That prophecy has been more than fulfilled, and prominent among- the causes of the recent overwhelming- defeat of the democratic party in the northern states, in the states that poured out their blood and treasure like writer to save us, a nation among the nations of the earth, was the unfriendly hostile action of this administration and Commissioner Lochren toward these wards of the nation. "1 bid my .Millering comrades be of good cheer, the present injustice is cot to continue, the republicans will surely elect a loyal and patriotic man as our r.oxt president. The secretary pf the interior and the commi*sion«r of pensions will be changed, and with them the hostile and unfriendly attitude of that great department of the government." IN LONDON STREETS. Public Vehicles :uxl Hie XVny They Arc IlntKlIcil. As a rule the carelessness of the driver varies somewhat in proportion l.o the invulnerability of the vehicle he 'drives! The driver of the hansom cab, says the London Spectator, though he often outrivals Jehu in the speed and fury of his driving, is always on Uie alert, and rarely fails to pull up his horse in mideareer and avoid the collision which threatens him. To travel swiftly, to cut in and out of slower carriages, is the life of the hansom. \Ve cng-ap-e ' c for tlla! ' purpose, and its driver seldom disappoints us. But the poor man's -family of oread, | hansom is an <. x ,, rcm{ .]y vulnerable vehicle; even in collision \vith the four- wheeler it will surely fare the \vorse. Hence it comes ahout that t~hc driver of a hansom keeps a sharp lookout for obstacles and prefers p-jlling- his horse on his haunches to running- over the innocent foot passenger. It 5s curious xhut, with all their spaed, both hansoms and butchers' carts— \>y far the swiftest of the \vhceled denizens of our streets, have fewer accidents laid to their account than their slower fellows. The omnibus driver is also of a careful nature. He, too. conducts a. carriage that cannot g-o into aotion with imp-unity. The omnibus canu afford to bully the hansom or the-brdrig-ham, but it dare not jostle the van of its own size. And as regards foot passengers, the driver has a natural tenderness toward ao unprotected race who supply hirn with fares. _i s ' the flower fs Before the" fruit, so is but N OT WHAT WE SAY, what HqcxiVSarsaparmaDpes, ithat tells the story of its merit and success Remember HOOD'S CURES.

Onee a man was begging at the clergyman's carriage window.
