HIrani Kimpten'M Varied Adventures. —A L.tfe with a tJold«n Mornfnfr Endv in Ruin at Mid-Day. Beginning with Mount Hope in the vil- lage of Ticonderoga, and running north for about three miles, between the lake shore and the mountains to the westward, is a crest, or convoluted ridge of land. At the northern extremity stands a large two story farm house, with broad and inviting piaz- zas. The extensive out-buildings surround a well kept plaza. To the eastward for a half mile or more tbe land falls gently away to tbe beautiful Champlain. To the- >rth and east it drops abruptly in to the- ,lley of an ancient water coarse or bay. | It is a farm of 450 acres, every foot of which ay be seen from the home of the owner. was the birth-place and early home of thplace and early home of Hiram Kimpton, and mignt have been his now, with the added wealth of $100,000. Instead, at 45, he lies in a beggar's grave, his father and mother lie neglected in an- >ther small burial lot, and his only sister s an Incurable in an insane asylum. The* father was bound up in the son. As he made improvements about his home he often said: \This is all for Hiram.\ In a will made before financial ruin swept ovei them, he bequeathed to Hiram all his property, estimated at $75,000. A PBOMIBIKG FUTTJBK. Young Kimpton entered Yale college,. Jass of '62. Joseph Cook was a classmate; also one Chamberlain of South Carolina, who afterwards became the governor of that state. After graduation he studied law, and throagh a mutual friend, County Clerk Wm. E Calkins, he was offered a. law partnership with Judge Hale at Eliza- bethtown. He refused it, and the young: man who did accept so tempting an offer- is now the Judge of Essex oounty. Kim- ton chose the dazzling bat Inglorious path which led to his ruin. When urged by the- friend, above named, to settle down at 1 home and use the wealth he would inherit I in doing good and in winning a moderate increase, he replied: \I know where I can make more money in a year than here in a lifetime.\ He became a broker in Wall street. He induced his father to sign- open notes for him to fill up. He persua- ded his father and many other friends to put into his possession all the United States- bonds in which they had invested their savings. He promised them great returns. I The promises never were kept and the bonds never returned. His father then mortgaged his farm until its value was all mortgaged away, and he was pennilness. The mortgagee, Mr. L. J. N. Stark, was compelled to take and now owns it. This point was not reaohed without times of. apparent prosperity. OBOOKED DEALINGS IN SOUTHERN SBOCBITCSS* It was reported that certain railway trans- actions in the South had yielded Kimpton. large profits. He became Hie financial agent for the sale of South Carolina bonds. He was suddenly rich, and reputed to b» a millionaire. Suspicions of crookedness began to take shape. The people of South. Carolina aconaed him of fraud in manip- ulating notes before the bonds were issued 1 and when they were sold. Officers were- put on his track. He became a fugitive, hiding in his own state, New England and, Canada. His fortune melted away, and when he oould return to New York in safe- ty it was to be one of the great and huogry> crowd of curb-stone brokers. Once only after this did fortune smile upon him. B y a lucky speculation he became pouessedt of $10,000. Mr. Stark urged him to re- deem the homestead and quit New York. He refused, and again passed one of those turns in his life beyond which there was no return. From borrowing of friends he> came, to begging; from begging be slipped) into vagranoy, for which he was sent to the island, where he died. Last Tuesday he- was buried away from father and mother,. a wreck at mid life.— Albany Journal,, Aug. lst.^ He«Unf of tne Village Boartf.
