THREE FOR ADMINISTRATORS

Exaonton of Oreicbton Estate,
TWO CHERISHED f LANS MAY BE PERFECTED
ill te Renctt LJssltatloa from
Hospital HAldlnaV Will Make
Codicil to Will Ceaforsa
with Statatee. -
Though th will of the lata Count John
A. Crelghton has not ben opened, so far
aa can he ascertained, a friend who waa
very cloae to tha count any he understand
tha administrators of tha estate will be
John Bchenk, John A. McShane and J. M.
Daugherty. These men were Intimately as
sociated, aoclally and In business, with Mr.
Crelghton; In fact . Mr. Bchenk waa hla
brother-in-law. a member of hla household.

closer to him than any other man. Mr.
McShane and he were associates In mors
than one business enterprise and also re
lated by marriage alliances. Mr. Paugh
arty baa been In Mr. Crelghton's office for
The will was drawn by tha late James
M. Woolworth. The question of Its lega
cies to St. Joseph's hospital continues to
be one of Interest. Inasmuch as the present
law forbids any hospital holding property
In Its right to the amount of more than
1100,000. It was understood some weeks ago
that a codicil provided additional benefac
tions for BL Joseph's hospital exceeding
the taw'a limit without a knowledge of this
technique. When this point waa called to
mind It waa decided beat to secure an
amendment to the law removing that limi
tation and legalizing the bequeeta which
tha count had made, since there appeared
no valid reason why such bequests should
not be made, and every reason why they
should. Forthwith two bills were Intro
duced In the legislature, one In the house
and the other In the senate. It waa hoped
to get one through and signed by the gov
ernor with an emergency clause before Mr.
Crelghton died, but that proved Impossible.
Tha bill decided on for passage Is past one
house and well on Its way In the other with
no chance of being obstructed, so the de
crees of the. codicil are likely to stand.
Two Cherished Plans.
From Intimates of Mr. Crelghton It Is
learned he actually gfieved because he was
tkot able to perfect at least two benefactions
In addition to tha large number that shall
ndura aa stable monuments to hla name
and blesalnga to humanity. These-two, as
' Tha Beo has mentioned before, were a home
for deserving young, women of meager
circumstances and a home for Indigent
elderly women.- It seems he had all tha
details of these . enterprises mapped out
In Ma own great mind and waa but waiting
for tha return of vigor and health to set
about launching them. He conceived the
great good they would subserve and waa
enthusiastic In his agitation of them. He
wanted to afford to that army of young
women thrown out upon their own re
sources some place f decency and comfort
they could call their home, and to the old
women whose course of life waa nearly
spent with their material means a similar
place pf residence.
There la a strong belief that as soon as
matters can be ao adjusted those In charge
of the estate will see what can be done
toward carrying out these two projects
which the count cherished so foundly.

control. Mayor Dahlman this evening, will
attend a fistic exhibition advertised to take

After being thrown from the platform

as he can now calculate the time, when
he awoke. For almost five hours he had

this then. All he knew waa that he suf

his hands and feet stuck to the snow.
Even the side of his face was frozen to

He shouted, but nobody heard him. The
cars were so close that he had to bend
his head very low to keep them from strik
ing him. Even then he wanted to sleep,
and he bit his lips until the blood came in
struggling against the drowsiness.
When the train had gone he started to
ward the signal tower. It was a repeti
tion of the climb up the embankment ex
cept that the level footpath alongside the
tracks, trodden bard by the track walkers,
was an easier road. It was so smooth in
places, to be sure, that one could ptuh
himself along as though he were a sled
and that was less trouble than pushing
one's knees through soft snowdrifts. The
hardest fight harder even than forcing him
self forward, waa the fight to keep awake.
The drowsy feeling could not be driven
away; It must be fought every second; he
could not afford to forget It to rest for to
rest meant to sleep, and sleep meant death.
But the "Love o' Life" conquered. At
the foot of the tower he suffering man
summoned all his strength and shouted
for help. Already he had called several
times In vain, as he crawled toward the
tower, but this time he put Into the cry
all the power that was left In him. The
towerman heard him and soon appeared
with a lantern.

happened after he reached the tower. He
has only a blurred recollection that the

him on the floor beside a stove and that
there he remained until morning, when the

Old-Tine Carl Skates.
- Few of the present generation of skaters
ever saw a pair of old-fashioned "curl up"
skates or know whst they are, but If they
are native born tholr parents or grand
parents can probably tell1 them all about
these old-time appliances for skimming over
the ice. The boys and girls of today have
quick fastening, light and handsome skates,
and In many cases keep them attached to
shoes that are used only for skating and
are put on at the pond side.
In the old days straps for the "curl lips"
were unknown, leather thongs or stout
strings being used with a sort of "harness"
to keep the skates on the feet The term
"curl up" comes from the maner In which
the forward end of the skate Iron . were
curled, extending over the toe of the foot.
Doubtless many of the old folks can re
member when the cheapest skates constated
only of a wood bottom for the foot and a
strip of metal for an Ice surface. These
were Vcheap" Indeed. Hartford Times,
