Young George Pullman, age, according accord-ing to the records, 26, born to. the possession pos-session of millions, attended through all his life by the luxurious surroundings surround-ings that were his by right of parentage parent-age and expectation, died recently in California. The cause of his death was given in the dispatohes as acute pneumonia. ' George Pullman, as every one who reads the newspapers knows, was one of t,he twin sous of George M. Pullman', Pull-man', the inventor of the sleeping-car system that bears that name. He and his twin brother Sanger were born on June 25, 1875. The character and achievement of the father are too well known to need exploitation here. Pullman, Pull-man, Sr., from humble beginnings amassed A colossal fortune. The foundations foun-dations of his fortune were laid before his sons were born, and there was never nev-er a time thereafter that his fortune did not prosper. He died very suddenly, sud-denly, as it might be said, without warning. , That is to say, he retired one night in perfect health, awoke in distress, and passed away almost before be-fore physicians could be summoned to lend him assistance and comfort. A day after the newspapers were filled with flattering obituaries. It was only after the publication of the terms of his will that the world became aware of the great and migthy grief that had tugged at the heart strings of the rich man for years before Providence Provi-dence sent the stroke that took him out of the world. In this will he cut off his twin sons with a comparative paltry pal-try pittance of ?3,000 a year, being careful, however, to explain that the reason he did o lay in the total inability in-ability of either to appreciate the blessings bles-sings of business of the value of money. The country rang with the news of the disinheritance of the twins, and the event served to afford excuse for a recapitulation of the numerous and picturesque escapades of both. The bulk of the Pullman fortune of course -imiiirraiw,iW'WitfaMiiBiiiiimuiu,iiiLiiii the lobsters and Welsh rarebits that were to be had for money, and in other ways managed to interest themselves m the industry of burning the candle of life at both ends. These, of course, were wild oats of the more trivial sort. The tragedy began be-gan to darken when the blessed state of matrimony hove into view as a possible pos-sible solution of the destiny of the twins. It was the matrimonial experience expe-rience of both that gave the newspaper historians their best opportunities, and that brought to both brothers a notoriety noto-riety that either, no doubt, would have gladly escaped; The two engagements were announced an-nounced almost simultaneously. Miss Lynne Fernald, the daughter of Mrs. J. W. Fernald of Chicago, plighted her troth to Sanger Pullman. Within a few days it was announced that George Pullman, Jr.,' was engaged to Miss Fe-licite Fe-licite Oglesby, a daughter of the former form-er governor of Illinois of that name. Immediately after the publication of the terms of the Pullman vill disinheriting disin-heriting the twins, both young ladies promptly sought release from their respective re-spective engagements. After their disinheritance, the twins seemed to thrive fairly well, though there was no appreciable diminution of the fervor with which they sought the gayeties of life. Neither seemed to grieve over the loss of his fiancee. Young George went the pace as of yore, and the next piece of news to startle various communities was to the effect that he and Miss Fernald had eloped from his mother's summer cottage cot-tage at Elburn, N. J., where the young lady was an honored guest. The two were married privately in New York, and when Sanger heard of the event he telegraphed his brother his sincere congratulations. Not so long after this Sanger himself him-self was married without parental consent con-sent to a young woman in California, and when he arrived in Chicago to seek his mother's blessing, he was met by his brother George, who gave him "frffmyiffiTlTflllMi'li'l i'lfrtTT 'HilHWHTTTgHllfflT cess, who is the only daughter of the late Prince Rudolph, persists in her choice of husbands, she must give up all hope of ever reigning as Queen of Austria. This is a big sacrifice, but the princess springs from the willful Hapsburgs, and the chances are that where her heart goes there also will go her hand. The groom comes from one of the oldest houses and most illustrious il-lustrious families of Europe. The present head of the house, who bears the name of Alfred, was the first noble in the empire to study law and practice prac-tice at the bar. He was for some years prime minister. MACHINE TO INDUCE SLEEP. Help Ilroaght to Sufferers of Insomnia Jiy a Recent Invention. The alarm clock which may with reasonable certainty be depended upon to awaken, you at any desired time in the mornjiig is socn to be greatly enhanced en-hanced in value by another mechanical attachment. This is a sleep producer. To persons troubled with sleeplessness or sleepiness the new contrivance will undoubtedly prove a boon. It will put you to sleep at night and waken up at the proper time in the morning. The sleep-producing attachment consists con-sists of two horizontal rectangular panels of ebony, eight inches long and one inch high, revolving in opposite directions di-rections on a nickel pivot. The spring having been wound up, the ebony panels, pan-els, one above the other, revolve. Each is studded on both sides by a horizontal horizon-tal row of bright circular mirrors, the j size of a quarter dollar, and maintains a velocity of one revolution per second. sec-ond. This speed will continue for an hour without rewinding. To induce sleep by aid of this mechanism mech-anism you darken your room and allow a bright pencil of light falling from an aperture in the window behind you to fall upon the rows of mirrors In such a manner that they will reflect the rays into your eyes. Concentrate your gaze upon the revolving panels, and not al- ' 'Sl f v .... A fi went to the widow. The two daughters, daught-ers, however, Florence and Harriet, received re-ceived a magnificent share. Both of these sisters are now married, one being be-ing Mrs. Frank O. Lowden of Chicago. Sympathy for the two boys might have been more marked if it had not been for the known intention of their mother, made public very shortly after the publication of the terms of the will, to provide for them handsomely from her own splendid Jointure. She made good her promises In no uncertain way, and since their father's death the twins have suffered no lack of luxury. It was in their doings before and after their father's death that the newspapers newspa-pers of New York and 'Chicago, not to speak of other cities, found the pretext pre-text for biographical sketches that were not always complimentary. One of the beautiful features of this strange modern domestic romance has been the lasting and imperishable affection af-fection that has always existed between be-tween the two brothers. When either one has been in a scrape or in any sort of entanglement the other has invariably invaria-bly stood by him. Sanger Pullman was at his brother George's bedside when he passed away. He was never away from him when he was in trouble. The first trouble came, perhaps, while the parents were in Europe, shortly after the twins had returned from separate schools in the East. Young George and his brother Sanger, Sang-er, handsome as young gods in these days, became the dual center-piece of a rapidly moving coterie of young men of the town, who spilled champagne by the bucket, patronized all the first nights at the theaters, consumed all every assurance of his affection and support. From that time on Sanger and his wife have lived happily. It was to the doomed George that the trouble came. Very shortly after his brother Sanger's marriage he resumed a former friendship with Mrs. Blanche Bowers, one of the playmates of his childhood, and the wife of the composer of several sev-eral popular songs. The two were seen together constantly. George took Mrs. Bowers to New York, and it was while living with her at the Gerrard hotel, on Forty-fourth street, that Mr. Bowers brought suit for divorce against his wife and an action against Mr. Pullman for $50,000 damages for alienation of the lady's affections. Mr. Bowers has since secured a decree of divorce from his wife. The damage suit probably terminates with the death of Mr. Pullman. Mrs. Pullman (formerly Miss Fernald) Fer-nald) secured a divorce from her husband hus-band last December, with balm for her feelings in the way of ?1,000 annual alimony. That balm may or may not cease with the death of the offender. Fourteen days after that divorce Mr. Pullman married Mrs. Brazelle, a sister of his brother Sanger's wire. The ceremony was performed in the Arlington Ar-lington hotel in Carson City, Net. Since that time and up to the day of Mr. Pullman's death, he and his wife lived in California. Royal I.ove Match. prince Otto Windlsch-Graetz is the fiance of Princess Elizabeth of Austria. This is, according to all the gossip that comes to this country from Vienna, a purely love match, and if the prin- lowing it to wander elsewhere about the room, you soon become fascinated by the vibrating glitter. And then you fall asleep. Several other mechanical contrivances contriv-ances for inducing sleep have been placed on the market from time to time. All are founded upon the well-known well-known f3ct that the concentration of the mind upon a single impression produces sleep. The most complicated of these mechanical sleep producers is the ."vibrating coronet," just invented by Dr. Gaiffe of Paris. It consists of three bands of rnetal encircling the head. A branch strip extends to either of the eyelids, and by aid of a spring gently vibrates against it. This is used 'to induce sleep in the patients of the clinic of Dr. Bertillon. A New Alpine Danger. The wire cables used by tourists foi protection and aid in the Alps may, according to the latest experiences, be dangerous. An accident which occurred oc-curred on July 20, during an ascent of the Tribulaun in the Stubuler Alps is a proof of this. Several tourists on that day ascended to the summit of the mountain, which is 3,100 metres high. Near the top, where the ascent had to be made with the aid of wire cables, .the rocks suddenly began to hum when an ice pick came in contact con-tact with the cable, and sparks were seen. Shortly before there had been a thunderstorm which caused all these electrical phenomena. Suddenly the lightning struck the cable, stunning a tvOrist and the guide and hurling them several hundred metres below The other tourists were also struck.
