of An Eternity He Professed Not to Be
Nev York, Special. Col. Robert G.
Ingersoll died at his home, Walston-on-the-Hudson

day. His death was sudden and unex
pected and resulted from heart disease,
from which he had suffered since 1896.
In that year, during the Republican
national convention, he was takem ill
and had to return home. He never ful
ly recovered from the attack of heart
disease and was under the care of
physicians constantly. For the last
three days. Col. Ingersoll had not been
foe-ling well. Thursday night he was in
better health and spent a portion of
the evening playing billiards with
Wal?ton II. Brown, hi3 son-in-law, and
C. P. Farrell. his brother-in-law and
private secretary. He seemed to be in
better health and spirits when he re
tired than he had besn for several
clays. Friday morning he rose at the
usual hour and Joined the family at
breakfast. He then said he had spent
a bad night, but felt better. He had
been suffering from abdominal pains
and tightness about the chest. He did
not think his condition at all danger
ous. Colonel Ingersoll f pent the morn
ing swinging in a hammock and sit
ting on the veranda with the mem
bers of the family. He said he was bet
ter and had no pain.

turned into his wife's room. Mrs. In
soll was there. Together they discuss
ed what they would have for luncheon

rat much, owing to the trouble
with his stomach. He se?mei in good
spirits then. After talking for a few
minutes, he crossed the room and sat
down in a rocking chair, leaning hia
hoad upon the back of the chair. Mrs.
Ingersoll asked him how he was feel
ing, and he replied: "Oh, better."
These were his last words. A Eecond
after they were uttered he was dead,
The only sign noticed by Mrs. Inger
soll was that the whites of his eyes
suddenly showed. There was not even
a siigh or groan as death came. Doc
tors were hastily called, but their ver
dict was that death had coma instantly
The interment will be in Sicepy Hol
low Cemetery, at Tarrytown.
Mrs. ingersoll was tne only person
in the room with him when he died.
Death came to him as he had recently
expressed a desire that it should. He
of tciii, in old times, caid wished to
die slowly with a full consciousness, so
he might tell those about him how it
re!t. Recently he experienced a change
of desire to die painlessly and without

from horn for two years. It Is taid
that a srttir.g hen never fts fat. but

nally got her off, though the tra(n llkel
to have left her while she was raying
goodby ami kissing all the little grand
children. One of the girls wat mith
her. but I was to rcatter around t
home. Two weeks was the time nhe
gave herself, for she says that tt Is as
long as anyJody ought to stay any
where on a visit, for xome times folks
wear out their welcome and don't
know it. In fact one week is the saf
est. She went to Rome where our old
est boy and his family live and whre
she lived for twenty-seven years. Som
of her early friends are still there and
they came to see her, of course, and
talked about the dear old times until
ther eyes got teary and they drew
tneir chairs a little closer and were
merry and sad by turns as they talked
of the living and the dead. On Sunday
she went to our same old church and
sat In the same old pew and drank In
music from the same Hd organ, but the
preacher and the choir were eftanged.
After service she was forced to hold a
reception in the vestibule, where old
friends and their children and grand
children gathered around her, the
friends to greet her and their children
to look upon the matron of tho olden
time of whom they had heard. Yes.
this wonderful woman who so gently
dominated her lord and master and
kept him so sweetly subdued that h.-?
liked the subjugation.
She spent a delightful week and the
program for another was already ar
ranged when cn Saturday some bird of
the air told her that I was sick and she
could hardly wait for the evening train,
I had been eick, very sick but the crisis
hiad passed and for fear she might hear
it and cut short her stay I wrote her
that I was getting well and to finish
her rest. She i3 not that kind of a
woman or wife, and sure enough about
6 p. m. I happened to look out of the
window and saw her coming up the
lawn like she feared I w( ild die before
she got here. Then I had to tell her
as how I was taken down on Wednes
day for my same old kidneys got bel
ligerent again and wrestled with me
and threw me and I had vertigo and
lumbago and embargo and my eyeballs
ached and how the doctor treated me
heroically and scandalously and do6ed
me with something every two hours
afi different and nobody can tell what

course an old wauon will break down
ever and anon and has to be patched up
and kept greased, cr it can't go. By
and by it will all collapse and turn' to
dust like the one-hoss shay.
And now here comes the Philadel
phia Record just to dslurb my tran
quilcty and aggravate me itno using
more language on these yankee editors.
I have already used up aU my adjec
tlves on Boston and never dreamed '.
would need any for the Quaker C'ty.
The Record pretends to be a demo
cratic paper, but lt has got a whole
column about tne Ancersonville prison
and Its horrors, which it saj s have cre
ated a sentiment that will last as long
as time, and how the poor creatures
were shot down like dogs and stared.

deep with their hands and scraps of
shells In a vain effort to act water to
drink, etc Well, it's awful to read,
but I would like to know where those
shells came from must have fed the
boys oaa oysters.
Yes, Blaine charged all those horrors
upon us in a terrible speech, and Ben
Hill replied to him In one of the
greatest speeches of his life and refuted
every charge anct did it from the war
lecords and proved to the world that
Grant and Stanton and Lincoln were
responsible for every death and aU the
distre33 that occurred at Anderson-
vllfie. They ntterly refused to ex-
chansre prisoners witn tn whii Impor
tuned to do f o for the sake of human'
ty, for Grant said that our men in
north rn prisons would go back to
fighting again. We begirt them to
send us rations and medicines for their
men and told them that both might be
distributed by their own officers and
Fnr.fOijs. They refused Hurf ir.d. of
coure. ihfir men d'ed liki she?p. for
we had no medicines and our owa ra
tions wrt corn neal and salt pork.
P-nt tberc trisoners had Jast what
their guards had. Ask the guards who
still live. Ask Captain Hudson, of
Marietta, one of the best of men, and
he will tell you that the prisoners had
everything that be did and there was
no inhumanity, but pity and sorrow

lessness of their govern menL Read
Percy Gregg's chapter on this Ander
sonville and ydd will wonder that such
indifference to the misery of their own
soldiers could be found in any govern
ment upon earth. Mr. Gregg declares
that If the great powers of Europe had
have known it they would have ben
horror struck that the authorities at
Washington were really the murderers
of their own soldiers and they had to
appease the kindred of these soldiers
by making a scape goat of poor Win

The last of the works of the murh-
mallgned George IV. to be mentioned
here Is the enlarged and Improved
royal kitchen (at Windsor cattlej. It
stands perhaps the larpcfrt single
kitchen in the world on ground where
royal kitchens have t-to-xl from tlm
immemorial. Georpe IV. it was who in
1S2S gave it its lofty roof and top-light
ventilators. Its splendid clo-k lt Into
the stone walls, and Its generally me
dieval aprearance. At tbe other end
of the kitchen Is fixed hi immense
and venerable smokestack, whore or
igin is lost in the mists of antiquity.
One of these annually has the honor of
roasting her majesty's baron of beef.
The hot-plate table in the renter of the
kitchen measures no less than 11 feet
by nine feet. The batterie de cuisine.
in its brilliant array of glittering cop
per, is large enough to cheer the hearts
of a small army of gourmands; and to
show its office Is no sinecure, one may
mention that it has to make an annual
visit to the manufacturer for restora
tion and repair. Lady Uloomfield says
of this kitchen in 1842: "Tbe fire was
more like Nebuchadnezzar's 'burning
fiery furnace than anything else I ran
think of now; and though there is now
no company at Windsor, there m-erc at
least 15 or 20 large joints of meat
roasting. Charles Murray (comptrol
ler of the household) told me that last
year they fed at dinner 113.000 people.'
