An Eccentric Uoutscbold.
Mr. Charles Morrison, it is nut .-surprising to learn, had his personal eccentricities. It was port o�� the aud-
tore system of his life to avoid publicity in any shape, and notwithstanding ihat In Qasilaon Park (which was
the seat of the Fane family in the
IStli century) he owned a large and
beautiful domain, he mixed in society
practically not sit nil. He had no
tar'te for display, and the curious
household at liasildon lived with the
utmost plainness.
It was one of his peculiarities that
he woTe clothes, which, if not abao-
lutely_shabby, were obviously ready-
made; and he kept no carriages 'of
ln.i own, riillns-���when he1 did ride���
in hired cabs.
For all this, he was not mean. He
pave generously in private to charities, and was exceedingly kind to his
employees in 'he city and country,
who are believed co be liberally remembered In bis will.
Interesting details of the 'secluded
iife led by Mr. Morrison are told by a
correspondent. Few people knew
him, and none intimately. A great
reader of books, he kept largely to
his beautiful house, und would often
read until three and four in the mor-
wiiKi's ix comer.

Gould's  room   and that at  one    time,
she remained  in  her room    for    two >
weeks, consuming,during  that     time
seven bottles of brandy.    He said that'
he served cocktails for   her    In    the
morning, whisky at noon ami brandy
at  night.    Itlchards aaid    that    Mm.
Gould   used   profane language to  employees of the castle and once slammed the door of her room In her husband's face,  shouting so    the    entire
household   could   hear:  "Get    out     of
I here,  you  damned little  hound."    He
related  an  Incident when she abused
workmen  at  the   castle,    and    swore
that she was Intoxicated at the time.

Down the old path to the (fate.
