had born rilling for lifly years since lie
was eight years of ngo To-day ho is a
well iireservetl , nllhble little innn of sixty-
two. In his day ho was a uuher. ally
popular favorite , and though now a rein-
inisceueo , it is lint possible that his name
is not familiar. I in result's on a farm of
liis own on the Krie railroad not far
from I'nlcrson , in moral and mental eon-
tontmuiit amid fruit trees and grassy
lawns that are hU iiriilu.
"Goint ; on fifteen years ago , " ho says ,

and became 1 could n lib re I to. When 1
was a lad of thirteen 1 was getting $150

to think of tlio future. 1'or thirty years
Commodore Vamlerbilt used to takeearo

the late William 11. assumed llio

\ \ illiam K. to coutiiuu ! keuping
it for me. J hove a good deal invested
in veal estate. Unco I uwued 4 BQQ acres
iu ditVoront parts ot tlio country. Tlio
way I got into , or rather went into , real
estate was on tlio solicitation of friends
to assist them by taking mortgages on
their property. An old friend would
come to mo and say'Now , Eaton , you
must have a good deal o loose cash to
spare , getting alt your money in cash
from tlui public , mull want you to let mo
have so much on my real' estate , as 1
need it in my business. ' To help them
I'd comply with their request , and never
charge them interest until the bond was
due , and then , it'they could not pay I'd
lot it run on for one or two more years
at interest , giving them every ehaiico to

1 got this pjaco in that way , and , besides
the extension granted. I gave an ad
ditional sum , as 1 fancied tlio place for a
residence , being determined in my in
tention to retire. It was thought 1 had

I think it is. 1 always go to sec Mr.

in Now York. He has been my life-long
friend. Mr. Barnum onoe gave me a

thirty years ago , containing the signa
tures of all the prominent editors of this
country and Europe.
"Barnum and Forepaugli are the only
in ana wealthy circus men ol
to-day. I should say they are equally
wealthy , Koropatigh having the advan
tage ol being alone and getting all the
prolits , while Itanium has to divide with
his partners. Both are in the habit of in
vesting all their surplus in real estate ,
Barnum owning a section of Bridgeport ,
while Foropaugh has numerous houses in
Philadelphia. In the olden days more
money was uiadu in the circus business ,
because tlio expenses and risks were not
so great as now , especially in tlie mallei
of ground rent and license. A dozen 01
so horses , four or live cages of animals ,
one elephant , one camel , ami twenty
people all told constituted the outlit ; there
were no double mammoth toutsno droves
of elephants , no herds of camels , or studs

MILD FORMS OF IDIOCY.
SoHIQ Specimens > f Several Varlnttc
FninlHiu- Most People.
San Francisco Chronicle * : In the more
offensive forms of milel idiocy , there is
always this disregard of the well being of
others. This is tlio preipatetio iehot , who
is always slopping to talk to someboely
else in the nueldlo of the .sielewalk or on a
frequented corner , taking pains to eto
this when the streets are fullest of pedes
trians. There is the dramatic idiot , who
sits buhinel or in front of you at Ihe the
ater , and keeps telling his companions
what the actors are going to elo next.
There is a female species of this genus
who may bo the supposed intellectual
\vifo e > f n husband of well authenticated
stupidily , to whoso enlightenment she
elovotcs during llio progress of Ihe play
all her attention. Her volubility esxceoels
that of a thousaud-dollar-a-ycar commer
cial traveller , and her voice ofjis that
carrying. F-iu-alt , kinel that aggravates
thejistencr moro lhau llio filing of a saw ,
or a pine splinter vibrating in the winter
wintl. Let it bo said to the dis
credit of ils sex that the musical
idiot is usually a male _ . If you have
an car for music anil it is a favorite
opcr.i , he takes puins to sit beside you.
ami when the marvelous voice of the
great tenor or the astounding organ of the
wonderful soprano is going up like Shed-
ley's skylark , he beats time with iiis feet
ami emits harsh , guttural sounds that he
thinks resemble the air of tlie singer.
The exquisite joys of muMc are evanes
cent at tlie best , ami the musical soul is
sensitive lo the slightest discord. Noth
ing can be elono wan a pachyderm of this
species. There are fools mid ieliots so
strangely constituted that thesy will not
believe Ihoy are fools and ieliots oven if
you tell them. His is one of that kind ,
and the law , alas , eloes not allow you to
kill him , nejr can ho bo put in a dark cell ,
like the prisoner ot Cliillon , and fed on
moldy broad anel ttiintcel meal till his dis-
cnrdanllifc fitly ends in a lingering death.
Tlioio are oilier forms of musical idiocy
which are displayed in acrobatic feals ut
untimely hours on the piano , in tamper
ing wilh that exquisite instrument , tlie
violin , anil iu eliciting ear-piercing sounds
from the iluto. But the types are too
commonplace for scientific classification.
So , also , are those types of idiocy that
open all the windows in midwinter and
insist on having them closed in midsum
mer.Once in a crowdcel thealro Ihe orchestra
ceased its efforts with a great crash and
an abrupt silence , and a shrill voice was
borne to the uppermost part of the audi
torium , which said : "I like mine fried
in butler. " The incident is mentioned in
all the histories of the period. It was
one of those idiotic persons , a female in
Ihis nibtanco , who , when they get to talk
ing , can bo stoppeel by neither a stoam-
brake nor the side of a mountain. It is n
much numerous class , and il < j represent
atives travel much on the street cars ,
and often visit theatres nnel concerts ,
whore 'hejy insist on relating their pri-
VfttO amurs in loud , nerve narrow ing
tones. Ihoy have the kind of voice ,
which hoard behind you in the streets
everjpursucs you , maintaining its pene
trating quality in the universal din lone
after its owne1" Had been distanced anel
engulfed in the heedless crowd. They
have ncuto form of the initially trans
cending anodynes and anusstliotics. and
demanding heroic treatment. Nothing
will suilico but to extirpate llio prosonl
generation anel slaughlcr Ihcir children.
The idiocy of the average boy is of an
cxaggcratetl kind. It can hardly b :
clashed as kinel. Ho miirUtp're > porly be
called a howling JtiTot except that , neit
having years of eliscrotion ho is paiti-
ally excusable for the mental iiDerration
which causes him to violate all the pro1
priistlcer A liltlo later ho becomes an ael-
JjleSeont , when his idiocy takes a senti
mental form , less disagreeable , Ihougti
equally selll-m. The mala bipeel JHstfcu-
lorlng manhood imagines Unit ho is tin
center of the solai' system and that about
him revolve all the planets and theii
moons. Ho is not quite certain about
