Mitchell May fight. Wealthy men and directors fee. The Money making people of Wall Street were startled a few Days ago by a report that Russell Sage had gone away from a directors meeting without collecting his fee of five dollars. Investigation proved the Rumor to be unfounded. A Uncle Russell is a director in about Twenty corporations and he never misses a directors meeting of he can help it. The usual custom is to pay each director that attends a meeting five dollars. Frequently the Money is handed to the directors in the form of a Gold piece As they enter the meeting room. At other times the directors get their Money just before leaving the room. Some Days one Man is summoned to three or four directors meetings. If he happens to be j. Pier Pont Morgan he will attend the meeting of the greatest importance. If he happens to be Russell Sage he will attend them All. Or.

He struck upon his head with Uch Force As to break his neck. He was an old and Well known resident of Toledo and leaves a family. The Large hotels some very costly private mansions and apartments and the j Public bathhouses have their bathrooms i As is the custom in the United states i though the French bathroom is really much larger and is elegantly furnished with rugs lounges dressing tables etc., i the idea being that if one takes a Bath i one must lie Down and take a Nap after it people living Iii apartments costing As High As $1,000 a year and in the new Quarter of Paris in the neighbourhood of i the champs Elysee when they wish to Bathe other than take a sponge Bath in a Small portable tub. Either go to the Public bathing establishments or Send to them to have a Bath brought to their i apartments. Sunday morning one sees a strange looking two wheeled cart like a very High dog cart on which there is a framework built Over Tho wheels. This framework can hold three bathtubs. They Are made entirely of Copper and Are about 5 feet Long 20 inches deep at the end and 1$ inches on the Side. The Driver of this vehicle is perched no High on a Small seat in front is bareheaded and wears a Blouse. On each Giue of him an Iron ring encircles a Copper coloured vessel holding about three Gallons of hot water which rests on a Little shelf. He also carries a Supply of dry towels and sheets. The bathing establishments have these carts and when a Patron sends word that he wants a hot Bath at a certain hour the Bath is put on the cart the Kettle filled with hot water and the cart with its strange Load is rapidly driven to the building in which the apartment is. The Driver carries the Bathtub As an Adirondack guide carries a Canoe on his head and shoulders from the first to the fifth floor As the Case May be and after spreading a Sheet to protect the carpet he spreads also a clean Sheet inside of the tub so that the bather does not touch the Metal. Then he carries up the Kettle of hot water which he has brought from the main establishment. The necessary cold water he gets on the premises either on the same floor with the apartment or in the courtyard. When the bather has had his Bath Tho attendant removes the soiled water by dipping it out wipes out the tub and carries it with his kettles and soiled towels Down stairs to his cart. The charge for All this is about sixty cents with the usual additional tip to the Man. An untaught Diplomat. A you know Nick a said his Mother a a gentleman never asks for things no matter How badly he wants a Why does no the a said Nick opening very wide his round four year old eyes. A because it is impolite and greedy. That is Why it Sannoji me so to have you ask your Uncle John whenever to comes if he has brought you Candy.

He was the Normal Small boy not a Little Angel yet he had been trained a upon Honor a and Felt that a Promise once made could not be broken. This is the Way he kept it. When Uncle John came again his Nephew after greeting him leaned meditatively against his chair and said a you did no to bring anything but yourself this time did you i Uncle John Quot a yes i did Quot said Uncle John with a laughing shout a i brought a whole Pound of Candy and after that i wish it was Young people. 4corroboration.
