New York, Dec. 17.—The career ot Hon. Calvin S. Hrlcc, New York millionaire, former United States senator, who dlrd In New York Thursday, presents one of the muni remarkable stories of rapid rise from poverty to riches He Is the name man who, Irss thun twenty years ago, was to be seen hustling about dally on the streets of Columbus, wearing mud spattered rloth.i and generally with trousers tucked Into his high-legged boots. lirlre hadn't struck It rich (hen, hut he was working like mad on one of the curliest of 1'ls schemes—the building of the Ohio Central railway. In his late days he was is particular In his dross as he was then careless. The bringing of the big lawsuit by Thurlow Weed Ilnrnes naturally started all sorts of Hrlce jitorles anew on their rounds. Several are told by Dexter Marshall. In tine or two Instances Jay Onuld Is the other party In the (lories. Vmulcrlilll nml tlm Mi-Unl I'lnlc. One of them—quite possibly apocryphal, hut imiyhe not—runs Hint It was Qould who helped Hrlce and his friends to unload the Nickel I'l.ite ra:lr»ad on to William H. Vunderbllt. The Nickel Plate, It may he explained for the benefit of readers who do not keep themselves thoroughly posted In railroad matters, extends from Buffalo to Chicago, paralleling the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern. It has often been eald that It was built for the purpose of selling out to the Vanderbllts, the notion being that they would buy In order to protect their property. For awhile It looked to Brlce and his friends as if they had overshot the mark. Vanderbllt refused to scare and told Brlce when he called to talk about It that he'd prefer to wait till the IIrat mortgage foreclosure came along and buy from the sheriff. Then Brlce put up a big bluff. "If you don't buy," he said, "Jay Gould will." Gould Goes Ovor the Itnad. Vanderbllt gave Brlce the laugh right In the face and bade him a pleasant "Good morning." Brlce went away sore, but not discouraged. In an hour he was with Jay Qould. "1 know you don't want the Nickel Plate," said Brlce, "but I wish you'd make a trip over the line In a special car. It might Induce Vanderbllt to buy, and I'd pay you well for your time." Gould didn't want to be paid for his time, but It struck him as an exceedingly funny scheme to let W. H. V. In to the tune of several millions. So, in about a week, the wizard started out over.the Nickel Plate. Meantime the papers had printed the news that he was going 1 to buy, and Gould had declined to deny the rumor. His tour was of the slowest, most deliberate sort, and news of Its progress was sent from every telegraph station along the line. Vanderbllt came down from his tree before Gould reached Chicago, and Brlce and his friends netted several comfortable millions. Guarding Gurcloii Putoliim. Many persons have forgotten that Brice was a Union soldier In the civil war, but ho was. He was a student at May the Miami (O.) university In 1801, and he enlisted with a lot of other students. They were stationed In Virginia for about twelve months. A good part of the service of this company was to guard the garden patches of certain unrepentant Confederates. One of these was a typical southern gentleman, "Mr. James M. Johnson, by gad, sah," aa he announced himself at the camp one day. He was kicking because some of the soldiers had been robbing his potato patch. "But," said Johnson, "If any one of yo' boys IB hungry und will come to my house with a basket In the daytime I shall certainly not refuse him a few potatoes, by gad,sah." This tickled Brlce, and the next day THE JiKIVS l\ IUIIKP. The plnnt of (he Acme Hoofing nml flupply company, f'anl'in. o., wits entirety destroyed by (Irr.
