He did not- comr municate his impressions of what lie saw, but an idea of them may be formed from what followed, for he and his friends began buying New York Central stock. | Dec. 11. 1867, half a dozen gentlemen marched into • the rooms of :the company at Albany, some of them for the first time. At 11:15 Commodore Vanderbilt arose and dropped a piece .of paper in the ballot box and the change was wrought. When the ballot box was opened a solitary ballot \\pis found bearing the' names of 13 [directors representing stock; to the amount o£ $1S,- 000,6i00.'! Such was .Commodore Vandjsrb'ilt's accession to the New York,' Central; He came bringing his directors with him, . elected those) directors, then received through' them the management. It was a signaj^ triumph for a. man 73 years o£ age. Tlie' corisoli dation of the New York Central and the Hudson River Railroads followed not so very, long afterward. 12 YEARS AGO Railroad Story of Commodore Vanderbilt Is Rich in Interest!

This tribute to the founder of the'groat railroad system recalls the story of - how Commodore Vanderbilt, when approaching completion of the biblical span of three score years and ten, became interested In !' railroads. Cornelius Vanderbilt was a builder who could see further into the future than most of his contemporaries. Having amassed a goodly fortune of some dozen millions for the operation of his'steamship lines he looked about for a suitable investment for his idel.capi­ tal. ' . • _ ' j _ In the winter of 1862-1863 he began buying Harlem Railroad stock from an honest conviction that it was a Harlem well in .hand, he began buying ' Hudson New York, May 5.—Appearance of the disease psittacosis among parrots was the occasion for numerous facetious remarks by members of the : newspaper, paragraphers' union recently, but really the malady, .which threatened to become epidemic among the birds was no laughing mat ter. It was demonstrated that the disease was communicable to human beings, a number of persons having died from the effects of it Had the-disease spread throughout the country among the parrot population, the death rate- among birds and liumans as well might have been high. : ' Perhaps many people, ara not aware of what a popular bird the jparrot is in the United ' States. [There are no census figures on ithe parrot population; but it is known that thousands of them are imported annually, and New York authorities estimate that there are 30,000 parrots in New York City alone- Hunters have exterminated all the varieties of parrots native to the territory occupied by the United States. But there are 500 '• varieties of talking birds in the.tropical coun tries, and nearly all these varie ties are-represented in the parrot population in this country today " The \parrqt's history . extends almost* as far back as the.written history.Of man. Alexander the I.Great is credited with having Fn- troduced the Indian ring parrot to the Western world and Nero the Great, the gentleman violinist who! indulged in stringed rhapsodies while his capital city burned, had among liis extravagances parrots in cages of tortoise shell and ivory with silver wires; ( Man's liking for pets seems to have changed greatly. ..
