R. fi., who died recently at his magnincent mansion. "Lockley," in thla villaKe. At the time of hla death be waa in his 80th year, a veneratie tlgar; with a long white beard, and to all tht countrj'�lde he waa Jinown as a lonely bachelor of very eccantrlc ways. 8lnc� May. 1907, he had lived regularly �vould gradually accumulate, until by the tlm� the old gentleman came again ataeks of letters would be a-Watting him. Naturally tho flue old mansion deteriorated by his constant neglect ot It. The small sta.ff employed could not keep such a vast estate In good re pair, and it Is by no means certain that Mr, Oering would have appredat' ed their efforts, even It tl had been possible. When, in 1907, he took up his residence again at Lockley, he certainly did not encourage the activities of his servants. He lived almost entirely i" one room-his bedroom-and he would never allow it to 'be cleaned. Dust settled on everything, but he seemed only to rex-sl m it. By bis orders at least one room in the house had not been Interfered with for very many years. That was the apartment in which his mother died. It was his desire that It should be left In esactly the same state as when she passed away, and consequently the door was kept locked. Not the least remarkable of Mr Derlng's whims was his fancy for late dinners. His favorite lime was at ? o'clock in the morning, when, ot course, tho household staff wanted to be in bed. But even though he had t.ii; dinner in the early mornin.i;, ne always insisted on having his bi'eal;i":-ist punctually a I 7 o'clock. With such ii short rest one can luiie 'understand that he did not lilie to MAJESTIC THEATRE PHONg e4t. W. B. SHERMAN. Mflnanef. GEO. B.
