R VOLUTION'ARY MANSIONS.
Ancient Houses Still Standing in Now
The celebration of the contonninl of
Washington's inauguration has stimu
lated an interest among Now Yorkers in
the history of Washington's tlmo , and
especially in the landmarks still oxist-
> ng in the city that wore , associated
with events of the revolution and the
years immediately following , says the
Now York Sun. Of the fpw buildings
of Washington's time which still re
main the oldest is probably the Jumol
mansion in Ono Hundred and Sixty-
first street , near St. Nicholas ivvouuo.
The house , which was then called
the Morris mansion , was built by Roger
Morris in 1767. The main part of the
building was nearly square , two stories
high , with a spacious attic. An exten
sion of octagonal form contained a largo
and stately parlor , magnificently
furnished , with bedchambers ever it.
The central hall , or passage-way to the
parlor , was twenty foot wido. The walls
of the mansion' were of imported
Holland brick , sheathed with nlunlcs ,
Under the on tire building was a collar
dug out of the solid rock. In this
building Washington had his quarters ,
while the Americans wore slowly evac
uating the city. From the porch in
front of the house ho watched the
movements of the oncmy's fleet in the
Long before the revolution ths region
about Illvorsido park was dotted with
country scats and dcor parks , and was
then known as Blootningdalo. Hero
was built the famous Anthorpo mansion ,
originally a nobleman's ' palace , now a
restaurant and boor hall in ox-Alder
man Wondel's Elm Park. Under thereof
roof of this mansion the secret expedi
tion of Nathan Halo was planned Into
on Saturday night , September 14 , } 770.
Hero Washington had his headquarters
when the iutolligonco of the approach
of the British Hoot was brought to him ,
When ho moved further north and the
British occupied the city , Lord Howe
and his staff occupied the same apart
ments in which Washington had slept.
The building will soon bo torn down to
mnko way for a now street.
There are two other historic build
ings , though of a somewhat later period ,
in that neighborhood. Ono , ' 'Tho
Grange , " in One Hundred ami Forty-
seventh street , near Tontli uvonuo , was
built by Alexander Hamilton in 1802.
The other , built about the sumo time by
Dr. Samuel Bradhurst , stands in Ono
Hundred and Forty-eighth street.
Another building of a still later date ,
stands near General Grant's tomb. It
in the Claremont mansion , occupied at
various times by many distingulshod
persons. It was built by Dr. Post. Ho
was succeeded by Viscount Courtonay ,
afterwards carl of Devon , After the
earl came Francis Jamcp Jackson , Brit
ish minister. Joseph Bonaparte , ox-
king of Spain , lived in this mansion in
1815. Now a prosperous rostuurnntuur
occupies it , and dispenses boor and
sandwiches to West Side pleasure
In tl7o lower part of the city , now
called "down town"and then known as
"tho city. " few of the old buildings ro-
niiiin. The old Clurkson house in
Whitehall street was burn'cd in 1770.
In 1703 a three story brick building was
built on the slto and is still thoro. The
row of old-fashibnod houses on State
street is also a rcllo of 1760. The slto
of the French Huguenot church which
was built m lU88is now occupied by the
produce exchange. The Kennedy houao
at 1 Broadway , and an old framb houao
adjoining it , from which Washington
is said to have viewed the fireworks on
the occasion of hia inauguration , wore

DCS MOINES , la. , May 13. ( Special to
TAB Bnc.jlovvn Is getting to bo quite a state
for insurance business. DOS Molncs has
been called the Hartford of the west , it has
so many Insurance companies located hero.
But the interest which the Iowa authorities
have taken in protecting the people against
fraudulent Insurance companies , has given
them confidence to give a good patronage to
companies that nro reliable and worthy.
The Insurance department of the state audi
tor's ofilco is not only ono of the most Im
portant branches of his worn , but Is also
ono of the most Important de
partments of all the public ofllcos
of the state. Its business has grown to such
proportions that it calls for the undivided at
tention of several clerks , and the auditor
himself , gives It personal oversight. Audi
tor Lyons has Just prepared and given to the
printer his annual report on this subject. It
will bo some weeks before the report will bo
ready for the public , but , from advance
sheets , some interesting Information can bo
obtained. Since his last report was issued ,
ho has admitted flvo flro insurance com
panies to do business in the stato. During
the past year ho has revoked the cortlllcuto
of but ono company , which speaks well for
the good character of the business they
nro doing. There are twenty-seven Hfo com
panies , two of which do accident business
ulso. and ono that docs an exclusively acci
dent business In the stato. Of this number
four are Iowa companies , ono Joint stock
company and ttirco mutual. During Ib38
there were thirty-one mutual benefit asso
ciations doing business in the state , and of
this number eighteen wore Iowa associations.
Since January J , 1880 , thirty companies have
been granted certificates , There
nro now lit flro insurance companies
authorized to do business in this state ,
seventeen of which arn Iowa companies.
There are 114 mutual , flro and tornado asso
ciations operating in the state under a special
provision of the code. There are ut present
twenty-nine distinctive life companies au
thorized to do business in th'o state. The
auditor makes some special recommendations
with reference to what uro known as "fra
ternal" associations , that do tin insurancp
business. On the theory that these fratcr-
uals wore organized for social rathtJrthan
business purposes , they have enjoyed an ex
emption from the supervision , which other
associations have hud. Some of these frater
nal associations , like the order of railroad
conductors , Masonic Benevolent association ,
etc. , etc. , have voluntarily reported to the in
surance department the results of their in
surance work. But the auditor intimates
that there is a host of snide companies that ,
under the guise of being a benevolent and
fraternal society , really carry on an insur
ance business subject to no legal control ,
and Quito disposed to swindle the unfor
tunates that are duped by them. So ho
recommends that the law bo amended so as
to require all associations organized under
the laws of the state to make reports to tllo
insurance department , and bo subject to examination -
amination by it , the same as other assess
ment associations aro. And also that the
same requirements bo exacted of all such
fraternal societies that may bo organized in
other states , but do business in this'state.
State Dental Association.
DBS MOISES , la. , May 12. | Special to
TUB BEE. ] The recent meeting in this city
of the State Dental association developed a
good deal of bad blood , over the management
of the dental department of the state uni
versity. The public generally has known
very little of the fight going on between the
old faction and the new ono , among the den
tists of Iowa. The old .men , who organized
the society , and in duo time organized the
dental department of the state university ,
and contributed the money..to support itbo
fore the state adopted it , are very much in
censed over the removal of two of the old
professors at the university. The university
seems to have a porqunial quarrel of some
kind on its hands , and a row had grown up
in the dental department , whoso faculty
failed to agree with each other. The regents
tool : a band , by cutting off the heads of two
of the teachers , who hauponcd 15 ho two of
the old-time friends and strongest support
ers of the state society. Alonjr came the
legislative committee , and it made u report
rullecting upon the man whom the regents
had promoted over the heads of the deposed
professors. So the tooth-pullers had to fight
It out in their association meeting hero. They
took sides for and against the deposed pro
fessors , and for and against the legislative
investigating committee's report. Most of
the older men 01 the association wore for the
deposed professors , and for the committee
report. Most of the younger man , who have
been under the teaching and influence of the
favored professor , in recent years , wore for
him , and against the report. But they were
defeated , after a long and hitter fljrht. It is
probable that the fight may bo renewed next
winter , when the legislature moots , and one
or two regents are to bo elected.

DCS MOINES , la. , May 12. fSpecial to THE
BEE. ] The principal event of public- in
terest in southern Iowa the past week was
the annual meeting of the Muslo Teachers'
State association. This organization is com
paratively young , but already takes high
rauk in the state , and its meeting at Mount
Pleasant was a great success. Its member
ship includes the loading music teachers In
the colloges'and publlo schools of the state ,
together with prominent musicians and pri
vate teachers of music. It devoted thrco
days to Its work at Mount Pleasant. The
programme of exorci.sos was largely devoted
to matters of a purely technical character ,
that chiefly Interested the members of the
association. But Interspersed were concerts
of a popular order by the leading performers
In the association , The association gave
special attention to the subject of music in
the publlo schools , and had an example of
some excellent results that were obtained by
the system taught by Mrs. Jackson , v. ifo ot
the superintendent of the schools of Mount
Pleasant. It is bellnved that a united and
systematic effort will be made to have rnusia
iiitrcdnccd into all of tbo schools of the
state its ft pirt of the regular work of in
struction. It Is now u part of tfio course of
study In many of the cities of ft wa , though
not in all. The next meeting of vfto associa
tion will bo hold in DCS Moines In May , 18'JJ.
Prof. Uommol , the president of the Musical
Conservatory ut Mount Pleasant , was ro-
olcctod president of the state association.
DBS MOINES , la. , May 13. [ Special to

tirely of old so'idlers who are republicans.
It Is understood that they want to take a
hand In politics , us old soldiers , and as they
would not bo allowed to do under tbo consti
tution of the Grand Army. They think that
the old soldiers uro not always getting fair
play in the matter of olllcos , and they bopo
to improve their condition by this organiza
tion. Thnro is some talk that blmllar or
ganisations may bo made In other parts of
the state. But as the old soldiers in Iowa
have generally got what they wanted
heretofore , there doosn' seem to bo much
need of this new alliance.

DOOH Prohibition Prohibit ?
Sioux CITV , la. , May 12. [ Special to THE

The number of federal licenses in this city

Prapn intr Lnnd for Grass.
In preparing the land for grasses it is
not always wisoto stir the soil-very
flcop by plowing , especially If the sub
soil is poor , says the Brooders' Gazotto.
By kcopinp the fertility oloso to the
surface , with shallow cultivation the
young grasj plants have much creator
opportunity for getting a start und
maintaining tlieiniolvcs than if they
are compelled to begin lifo upon burro u
aub-soil fresh turned up by the plow.
Experience lias taught that prairie and
wood lauds can bo converted into line
pastures withoutairring ) the virgin
soil , by scatterngjfeood upon the unplowed -
plowed soil. Oftontl farmers express a
desire to break ujitho' old pasture lot ,
expecting that by resooding the grass
product will bo greatly increased. Wo
think this idea is usually Incorrect , and
urge that the old pastures ho loft undis
turbed. In England there is a saying
that a man can bo knighted in a inin-
ute , but it requires a hundred
yours to inalco luwn. Many of
our old pastures are , better now , after u
generation has passed , than ever before ,
and it would bo a great pity to disturb
thorn in any way , , unless " to fortili/.o by
surface manuring. "An examination of
those pastures will show the soil richest
near the surface , and * this is just w.horo
the fertility should bo. It works down
rapidly enough by the rains to bo util
ized by the grass roots.
Better than to disturb the pastures by
plowing and roseoding is the plan of
'coding thorn with manures scattered on
In the fall , or by feeding bnni and other
Toods rich in fortiliztira to the cuttle
which pasture on 'them , BO that the
ilroppings ho utilized. Manuring land
by feeding the cuttjo in summer is ad
vantageous In Bovornl ways , not least of
which that the manure is disposed of
without cost , and is applied to the field
without waste. Hardened nmesoa of
droppings can easily bo broken up and
llstrlbutod ouch spring by running u
irag ovqr the pastures.

country where I can be safe. Then I will
make some disclosures , which will open the

Cronin indicated that a certain Methodist
minister had caused his trouble , but would
not disclose his name.
James J. Conwoll , a reporter on the Chicago
cage Times , said by Cronin In the Toronto
interview to bo the person who introduced
him to LcCaron , the British spy , denies em
phatically that there is any truth in the as
sertion , Conwoll says he was detailed once
to interview Cronin on some local Irish mat-
tnr , and that the doctor subsequently wanted
Conwcll to have published a long article , in
which Cronin was made to figure
hs n man who was being perse
cuted In certain ways on account
of his religion and nationality. Conwoll re
turned the manuscript. Cronln grew very
indignant. Conwell knows nothing of Cro

doctor , is the person , Conwoll says , through

jected manuscript mentioned above , and
through whom the document was returned

In company with n , lmUbrood who
combined the vocations ot woodtnnn
nu 1 hunter , L atuinbloil suddenly on a
litrgo specimen of the crotnhm rautus
slowly winding Us way nmong the Ion
dobrls of the forest , snys iv writer In
the India Stnlosmnn. For some tltno
it was dlllloult to discern the scnlj
( olds ol the simko through the brown
muss of decaying follngo , but hixvlnp
reiiohcd n olonr spot the roptllo collet ]
nroundn low stump and prepared for
notion. About a yard of the body next
to the bond wns contracted Into numer
ous uhnrn curves not unllko a cork
screw , wjillo the yellow eye gleamed
with u. baleful light.
There was llttlo fascination nboul
thosu orbs and no mistaking the malig
nant intentions of their owner. A
stick brought within reach of that mor
tal coil was struck almost with the
rapidity of lightning , no matter how
swiftly withdrawn. This was affected
by the Instantaneous straightening ol
the short curves Into which this portion
tion of the body had boon contracted.
Kven the wily mongoose would have
needed all of Ills murvolous agility to
avoid tbo deadly stroke if once within
range. The roach was about ayard ,
and the assault was delivered horizon
tally seine six inched from the ground ,
directly toward the astmllant. The
hunter , who had hitherto kept n re
spectful distance , ns ho alleged the
snake could spring , wns eventually
persuaded to approach sulliclonlly near
to strike It with a ten-font nolc.
At the llrst blow the heavy cells re
laxed from the stump and the creature
appeared doud or stunned. The writer
at once grasped the neck about two
inches from the hond und raised the
head partly from the gruund to examine -
ino it. As thonph galvani/.od Into lifo
by the touch , the crotalus scorned at
once to recover Its energies , and slowly
made a couple of turns around the
thigh and right arm of the would-bo
captor. The constricting power exor
cised was such that the hand grasping
the neck began to lese power , and the
writer realized the awful predicament
into which his temerity had led him.
Lllllo could be done with the free left
hand , while the ' 'scaly terror" begun
slowly to withdraw his head from the
relaxing grasp of tno right.
For some seconds the trembling wood
man appeared deaf to entreaty , and
could not bo persuaded to apply a uooso
or liana to the snake's nock , The
largest serpents becomes oaralyzis
when properly noosed , and are readily
dragged along the ground helpless nsit
log. Just ns the snnko's head seemed
about to ooze through the numbo
fingers , the half-brood screwed un his
courage snlllcioiitly to applv the liana
as directed , with the result that the
brute relaxed its coils , and was dragged
down to a neighboring stream , hung
up and skinned. It measured eight
feet live inches , and was about as thick
in the largest part of the body as the
calf of a man's leg.
The fangs , which wore careful ex
tracted , measured ono and a quarter
inches in length , and wore hollow to
within a short distance of the point ,
whore on the inner side lay the orifice
through which the poison was ejected
by the action of the base of the fang
on tlip bag in which it was socrcted. In
squeezing the bag n small quantity of
poison , a yellow lluid , passed down the
hollow in the tooth and ( fathered into n
tiny drop of concentrated death. The
stomach contained two woodrats about
the size of guinea wigs , one partially
digested , the other recently swallowed.
