Notice the "street sign" on the utility pole CORDTS. Frank Cordts was a furniture dealer on Washington Street. His first store was at 76 Washington Street. Later he built a four story establishment at 111 Washington Street. Still later he built a six story "magnificent emporium" at the corner of Washington and Second streets.

In this picture there are the seven tiered utility poles, however, there are no lines running on them. Why?

Francis (Frank) D. Jackson - 28 Washington (pre 1892 number) - wholesale milk - West side of Washington between Newark and First streets

1880: Bloomfield street, east side, Frank Jackson 30, milk dealer, Lizzie Jackson 21 Gertrude Jackson 9m

1883:

F. D. Jackson, Wholesale Commission Dealer in Milk, Office, No. 28 Washington Street. One of the active, enterprising business men of Hoboken is Mr. F. D. Jackson, who is largely engaged in business as a wholesale commission dealer in milk, having his office and depot at No. 28 Washington street. The milk is received direct every day from Orange County, New York, and the upper counties of New Jersey, and is furnished in its pure and unadulterated state to milkmen, grocers, hotels, and public institutions in any part of New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City, and Hoboken. Mr. Jackson, who is a native of the State of New York, has been identified with the business since 1871. He controls a large business in the cities in this vicinity, where he enjoys a high reputation as an honorable and reliable business man, and is highly regarded by all who have dealings with him. Mr. Jackson operates and owns a large farm at Morris town, this State, where he resides. He also owns a creamery at Andover, Sussex County, N. J., at which place he puts large quantities of milk in bottles. The milk is guaranteed to be absolutely pure and rich, just as it is drawn from the cows, and bottled at the creamery. The advantage of this method is the superior cleanliness of milk put up in this way, being kept free from railway dust or city dirt and as the packages are small, render it impossible to be tampered with safely from exposure. The bottles being transparent, the customer can always see what they are buying, as the milk will show an inch of cream on top of every bottle. The milk is brought to the city in locked cases, packed with ice (via Del. Lack. and Western Railroad), and delivered by wagon to the customer in the usual way. Many physicians have examined the method and approved it, and ordered the milk for children among their patients.

1895: New York Times - Francis D Jackson a milk deal in Hoboken said he did not think 32 cents a can was too much for the railroad to charge to bring milk from Orange county to New York City.

1887:

For many years Mr. F. D. Jackson has supplied many of the milkmen, grocers, hotels, and public institutions in and about New York with milk and cream from the best conducted dairies of Orange county, N. Y., and Sussex and Morris Counties, N. J. The milk and cream Mr. Jackson supplies is from the choicest dairies in the counties above named. He is proprietor of the Northrup Farm Creamery which is located in Turners, Orange county, N. Y., and is surrounded by some of the finest dairy farms in the State, and noted as containing some of the best pasture grounds in this country. The Northrup Farm Creamery receives all the milk from these farms, morning and evening, and the proprietor announces his desire to serve the public of Hoboken and New York with pure unskimmed and fresh milk in glass bottles at eight cents per quart. The milk is guaranteed to be absolutely pure and rich, just as it is drawn from the cows and bottled at the creamery. The advantage of this method is the superior cleanliness of milk put up in this way, being kept free from railway dust or city dirt, and as the packages are small, render it impossible to be tampered with safely from exposure. The bottles being transparent, the customer can always see what they are buying, as the milk will show an inch of cream on top of every bottle. The milk is brought to the city in locked cases, packed with ice (via Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad), and delivered by wagon to the customer in the usual way. Many physicians have examined the method and approved it, and ordered the milk for children among their patients. The cows are fed on the purest and most wholesome food, outside of the grazing season, and no starch feed, glucose, or brewers' grains are used at the forty dairies controlled by this reliable dealer, and the large trade of Mr. Jackson in New York city, Brooklyn, and New Jersey cities consumes seven thousand quarts of milk and cream daily. The principal office is located at Hoboken, and orders are filled with dispatch. Mr. Jackson employs a force of fifteen hands in the conduct of his business, and eight wagons are required for delivery purposes. Mr. Jackson established his business in Hoboken in 1870, and has from the beginning maintained his merchandise at the highest standard of excellence. He is a native of Brooklyn, and was one of the first to introduce bottled milk.

Quarter-century's progress of New Jersey's leading manufacturing centres ... By International Publishing Company (New York, N.Y.) 1887

FRANK H. CORDTS, president of the Frank Cordts Furniture Co., the largest retail establishment of its kind in Hoboken, N.J., was born at Schulau, Holstein, Germany, December 20, 1863. He obtained his education in the Birgerschule of his native city. His father being a seafaring man, young Cordts had an early longing for travel on the ocean blue. After a year of service in the employ of the Hamburg-American Line, he was honorably discharged at the New York office of the company. About twenty-seven years ago he landed in Hoboken. He immediately procured employment in a grocery store where he attended strictly to his duties. Deciding to go in business for himself, he next started a bread route. Some six months later an opportunity offered itself and Mr. Cordts became the proprietor of a small furniture store at old No. 76 Washington Street, and through constant attention, increased trade to such an extent that a few years later he erected the building at 111 Washington Street, a store and four floors, which he occupied solely for the sale of furniture and floor coverings. Prosperity continued and eleven years ago the magnificent emporium at the corner of Second and Washington Streets was erected, a large six-story structure. It is to-day the most modern, as well as the largest house of its kind on the Hoboken side of the Hudson River and stands as a monument of honest and straightforward dealings. On May 25, 1900, the Frank Cordts Furniture Co. was incorporated under the laws of the state of New Jersey with a paid-up capital of $100,000. Mr. Frank H. Cordts is president of the company and Mr. Adolph F. W. Matthiessen, born at Oldesloe, Holstein, Germany, April -, 1869, is secretary of the concern.

The plot of land belonging to John J. Devitt, one of the prosecutors, is a little differently situated; but I do not think it can be said that the railroad runs at all along the front of his property. His plot is on the southwest corner of Hudson and Eleventh streets. Eleventh street, running easterly, ends at Hudson street. The track of the road is upon the easterly side of Hudson street, and running southerly, passes on Hudson street 30 feet northerly of the southerly line of Eleventh street if produced across Hudson street, and is, according to the evidence, to be laid close to the easterly line of Hudson street. It can hardly be said that Devitt is an abutting owner, unless it be said that the curve of the load from the street to private property is a view of the premises. As shown by the maps and evidence, no part of the track will be in front of any portion of his lot.

Ernest (Ernst) Augustus WITTENBERG - 110 WASHINGTON STREET - DRY GOODS
Birth:

E. A. Wittenberg-, Dry and Fancy Goods, No. 110 Washington St. One of the popular dry and fancy goods dealers in Hoboken is Mr. E. A. Wittenberg, who has during his seven years' business experience in the city always made it a rule to sell goods of the best quality, at a close living profit, and has received abundant evidence of the just appreciation of his efforts and the confidence of the public by the large custom he controls. He occupies a handsome, fine, large, double-front store, 20x40 feet in size, and always carries in stock a well-chosen assortment of all kinds of imported and domestic dry goods, silks, and all kinds of dress fabrics, woolens, flannels, linens, etc., and also fancy goods, ribbons, laces, velvets, hosiery, gloves, and wools, worsteds, etc. Mr. Wittenberg pays strict attention to the markets, having a thorough knowledge of them, and from pursuing a liberal policy toward all his customers and the public, and being careful in attending to their wants, has gained a substantial reputation and patronage from all classes of the community. He is a German by birth, and a practical, honorable business man.

In June 2016 Rene Wittenberg share the following information about her relatives.

Ernst-August Lorenz Wittenberg was born in Ohsen (near Hamelin; at that time the Kingdom of Hanover, now Lower Saxony, Germany) on 5th April 1841.
In 1859 he travelled to England where he enlisted and in 1864 he married his wife Mary Thornewell Brownhill.
In 1865 they both migrated to the United States. Here they first settled in St. Louis, Missouri, where Ernst was working in several dry goods businesses, before moving to Hoboken at the end of 1875/beginning of 1876.
In Hoboken, Ernst set up his own dry goods business in 110 Washington Street around 1876. I do not know how long he stayed in that location, but I suspect that he may have moved his dry goods business to a bigger location later on, although I have not found any information on that.

Mary Wittenberg was born on 18th November 1835 in Worcester, England and died in Hoboken in 1907. I have not been able to discover the exact date on which she died.

Leah Agatha R. Wittenberg was the niece of Mary, and she was recognised and known as the daughter of Ernst and Mary. Leah joined them in Hoboken in 1878.
Leah never married or had any offspring and so when she died in 1937 she left her estate, some of which ended up being confiscated during WWII, to relatives and friends.

Unfortunately, I do not have any photographs of Ernst Wittenberg or his business to send to you. I am not sure where the personal items including photographs of Leah's estate ended up.

Additionally, a nephew of Ernst's, William E. Wittenberg, migrated to Hoboken in 189 and had a business in Washington Street.


William was born Wilhem E. Wittenberg on 22nd April 1873 in Colenfeld near Hanover, Germany.
After moving to the United States, William initially worked with his uncle in the dry goods business in 110 Washington St.
Some time before 1902 he set up a carpet and furniture business called "Spohn & Wittenberg" with Henry Spohn, who was a former employee of Ernst Wittenberg. The store was located in 224 Washington Street (please see attached advertisements).
Sometime between 1906 and 1910, William left Hoboken and moved to Easton, PA where he died on 13th April 1913. I am not sure if Henry Spohn remained in business after William left.
William married Barbara Bauer in the late 1890's and they had three daughters who were all born in Hoboken.

Rene is looking for information on:

  1. Ernst-August Wittenberg,
  2. William E. Wittenberg, his sister Dora Wittenberg (b. 1876 in Nienburg) passed away in October 1900 in the United States.
  3. Julius Wittenberg (1851-1888; worked in his uncle Ernst's dry goods business between 1877 until 1886, when he returned to Hanover, Germany). He married Louise Schultze in 1878 in Jersey City and four of their children were born in Hoboken.
  4. Carl Wittenberg (1862-1941; worked in his uncle Ernst's dry goods business between 1887 until 1889, when he returned to Hanover, Germany).

This class of goods has been carefully selected for a first-class trade and the prices will be found lower than that of any other house in this section.

    1908: In 1908 Justice W. C. Budenbender of Hoboken New Jersey was reported to have married Anna Gould, formerly Countess de Castellane and subsequently Princess de Sagan, to Prince Helie. He later denied that he had married them. Anna Gould had been divorced from Count Boni de Castellane and married his cousin Prince Helie de Sagan.

    It was said that he twice married Lillian Russell and failed to report the marriage until she told him to. It may have been his partner, August Moller who married Miss Russell.

    1909: November 21, New York Times

    ACCUSED OF FRAUD JUSTICE A SUICIDE; Wm. C. Budenbender, Hoboken's Marrying Magistrate, Shoots Himself to Escape Trial. TOOK $75 AS LAWYER'S FEE But Was Not a Member of the Bar - He Was Said to Have Married Prince de Sagan and Mme. Anna Gould. William C. Budenbender, the Hoboken Justice of the Peace who was arrested on Friday on the charge of obtaining money from a woman under false pretenses, committed suicide in his home at 315 Hudson Street yesterday evening. He was the Justice, who was supposed to have married the Prince de Sagan to Mme. Anna Gould before they sailed from here last year."
    Mrs. Lillian Fitzpatrick of Jersey City Heights accused William Budenbender of representing himself as a lawyer when, in fact, he was not a member of the bar. Mrs. Fitzpatrick was seeking a divorce. He took a $75 fee. He was arrested and bail was set at $500. He was said to ba a popular man with many friends in Hoboken. On the morning he was due to go to court he shot himself in the head. He lived at 815 Hudson street, was 53 years old, married, and a native of Germany.

    In August 1888 the wife of Louis Budenbender junior "a popular member of the the Hudson County (N. J.) Fat Men's Club" complained in court that her husband was mistreating her and had deserted her. They had been married at the Fat Men's Club on April 26th reportedly against the wishes of his family. The couple went to live in "humble apartments in Hoboken". Mr. Budenbender forced his wife to work to support him. He forced her to sleep on the floor while he sahred the only bed with a "boon companion". His family gave him money to leave her and he headed west.

    In 1889 Louis Budenbender real estate agent of Hoboken, New Jersey testified in the murder trial of Dr. Patrick Henry Cronin. Louis Budnebender stated that he had lived in Hoboken for 29 years except for a period between Aug 1888 and May 1889 when he had lived in Chicago.

    "An alibi for Dinan's white horse was furnished by Louis Budenbender, who had been brought all the way from Hoboken, N. J., to testify. His story was, that he was standing nearly opposite the Conklin residence on the night of May 4th, that he saw the buggy drive up and Dr. Cronin driven away; and that, having since seen Dinan's white horse, he was certain that it was not the same animal. The horse in the buggy according to Budenbender was a dark speckled gray with white legs and very different in appearance to Dinan's nag."

    The Murder of Dr. Patrick Henry Cronin

    1889: Louis Budenbender, who testified at the Cronin murder trial and the son of a well known coal dealer, "became enamored of" Frances Hilliard a variety actress in one of the Hoboken beer gardens. He spent all his time with her lavishing gifts on her. They were secretly married in Jersey City at the Fat Men's Club. They kept the marriage secret for a while until Frances Budenbender appeared in court and charged Louis Budenbender with non support. Louis fled to Chicago retuning to Hoboken late in 1889.

Residence of Frederick J. Drescher: History of Montclair Township, State of New Jersey: Including the History of ... By Henry Whittemore

RESIDENCE OF FREDERICK. J. DRESCHER.

It would be difficult to find a more beautiful location near the centre of Montclair for a suburban residence than that of Mr. Drescher's home on the corner of Park Street and Claremont Avenue. The view selected as shown in the accompanying illustration is from the southeast looking up Claremont Avenue, with the mountains in the distance as a body guard. The style of architecture is a combination of the Queen Anne and French chateau. The underpinning and first story is of rough faced brown stone. The framework above is sheathed and painted light cream or ivory color, giving a strong contrast to the stone work. The interior arrangements are complete and all the space utilized to the best advantage for convenience and comfort. Hardwood trimmings are used in all the rooms on the first floor. On the south side is the library and dining room, communicating by sliding doors. The library has a paneled wainscot of walnut, and the doors and window trimmings are of the same material. The fire-places in both rooms are of glazed tiling, with elegant hardwood mantels, mirrors, etc. The dining room is finished in antique oak, with furniture to correspond. There is a centre window of stained glass, which sheds a soft light over the whole, giving a pleasing effect. The hall is trimmed in oak, including the staircase, which is lighted at the landing by a large stained glass window of elegant design, representing a pastoral scene. A large antique clock of elaborate design stands in the rear of the hall, near a large open fire-place. (A smoking room and toilet room opening out of the hall complete the arrangements on this floor.) The parlor, on the north side, shows a beautiful blending of colors, the walls and ceilings being in ivory and gold, and the trimmings and furniture all harmonize both in color and finish. The whole interior arrangment evinces excellent taste and good judgment.

Mr. Drescher, to whom Montclair is indebted for some of its finest dwellings and other improvements, was born in Philadelphia, near the Schuylkill River. October 12, 1839. His parents were Germans. He removed with them when quite young to New York City, where he attended the public school and afterward took a commercial course in Goldsmith and Renwick's Business College. Like most boys he tried first one place and then another, and finally, having arrived at a suitable age, leased a stand in Washington Market and started in the provision business. He was successful in this and subsequently ran two stores on Eighth Avenue, both of which yielded a fair income. He sold these to good advantage and formed a partnership with John K. Lasher, wholesale produce merchant in the same business. This he afterward sold out, and for some time carried on an extensive business on Washington Street. About 1872 he disposed of his New York business and in the meantime his father having erected a large building in Hoboken, he decided to go into the business of fancy groceries, both wholesale and retail. From the beginning of his business career he made it a point to buy and sell strictly for cash. He watched the market closely and bought only the finest grade of goods in large quantities, all of which underwent his personal inspection. His methods of doing business prevented the possibility of failure, and success has attended all his efforts. Desiring to enjoy the fruits of his labors he sought a country home. He was favorably impressed with Montclair, and in 1885 he bought a place on Claremont Avenue, near Valley Road, where he resided for six years, and in the meantime bought other property, built and sold, realizing a fair profit on his investments. He began the erection of his present home in 1889, which is acknowledged to be one of the finest residences in Montclair. Through his investments and improvements he has added over $150,000 to the taxable property of the township. While taking no part in the public affairs of the township, he has been in hearty accord with everything tending to its social advancement. He was one of the early members of the Montclair Club, and when it was determined to enlarge its field of usefulness, and erect a building suitable for the purpose, he zealously supported the movement, and subscribed liberally to the stock. He is a stockholder and director in the Montclair Bank, a member of Montclair Lodge, F. & A. M., of Pentalpha Chapter, No. 11, R. A. M., of Hoboken, to all of which he has given his generous aid as circumstances required. He was an officer of the Ninth Regiment National Guard, State of New Jersey, and also formed Company F of the same regiment. Honest and upright in all his dealings, a man of unimpeachable integrity, honored and respected in business and social circles, he well deserves the success he has achieved.

He was married in 1865 to Miss Eleanor Eliza Compton, daughter of William H. Compton, a descendant of an old Jersey family. Her great-grandfather, Job Compton, was Lieutenant in a Monmouth County, N.J., Regiment, which rendered important service in the War of the Revolution.

"Enclosed find proofs from New York dry plates, taken on a hot day—no ice water—no monkey business; simply alum in hypo bath. Seed and Cramer plates treated same as these acted like butter on a hot night. The portrait of the young man did frill like fury, because I was reckless and used no alum. I soaked him in wood alcohol and all is O. K. except that the picture is hard.

Please excuse pencil. I wanted to show you what I can and am doing with the New York dry plates in Yankeedom, and have no time to hunt up a pen. Give me your opinion of the work. Yours truly, Herman N. Lay." Norwich Conn Juen 21, 1899

Schlesingerville Wisconsin is now called Slinger. Their web site was it was founded by "state senator Baruch Schleisinger Weil in 1857; it was renamed on December 22, 1921"

AKA asBernard Schlesinger Weil, he was one of the earliest Jewish settlers in the State of Wisconsin.

But Julius Schlesinger was in Schlesingerville as evidenced by Slinger (Wisconsin) Centennial Committee/Schleisingerville to Slinger, 1869-1969: historical album and centennial program book (1969)

"SAINT JOHN'S CHURCH

St. John's has survived through 120 years of both difficult and fruitful times. The forefathers of Slinger came almost entirely from Germany. In the midst of their work of getting settled in a new country they felt the need for spiritual guidance. With just such enthusiasm the present congregation was established on its present sight.

At first some religious meetings were held in a log house on the hill in Slinger. Then in 1854, a log church was built upon a piece of land which the congregation purchased from Julius Schlesinger for the sum of one dollar. At this time the congregation adopted the name of St. John's United Evangelical Lutheran church."

Cremation:

"Hundreds followed the procession that bore the body of Eugene Lievre to the squat building on Long Island, where on December 4, 1885, the fires had been made ready for the first cremation in New York".
The process at the Mount Olivet crematory took several hours. His remains - five and a quarter pounds of ashes - were placed in a Japanese tin can which was given to his son, Adolph Lievre.

Eugene Lievre was said to be a well known philanthropic atheist who stated in his will his wish to be the first one cremated in the new crematorium. He had died the month before and his body had been kept in a vault in Greenwood [?] cemetery.

A hearse and a long line of carriages came from Hoboken by ferry across the East River to the crematory. No prayers were offered but the Arian Society did sing. His sister and two of his children wer present. Admission to the building was by ticket and only 100 "invitations" had been issued.

The cremation was carried in newspapers as far away as Tucson, Arizona with gory detailed descriptions of the procedure.

The New York Times reported that Leivre used to keep the old Chamber's Street Hotel but recently had been keeping a hotel in Hoboken. He had been born in Austria but left "because of uncomfortable political affiliations".

As with many things there were two sides to the story, some calling the cremation an unqualified success while the International Record of Medicine and General Practice Clinics, Volume 42 stated newspaper reports claimed the "ashes' included a six inch long piece of the forearm "still so firm when the residue was withdrawn that it could be broken only by the sue of two hands".

Ohio and Missouri Wines: German immigrants to Missouri established vineyards along the Missouri Rive as early as 1837 and by 1848 were making large quantities of wine. Some Missouri wines won prizes at the worlds fairs in Vienna in 1873 and in Philadelphia in 1876. Ohio started producing wines in 1823. By 1860 Ohio produced more wine than any other state. Prohibition stifled the wine industry in Ohio and Missouri.

"Joseph Fickler took over the Shakespeare Hotel in New York from Eugen Lievre and boarded refugees for seventy five cents a day."

1902: A rudely constructed infernal machine was found at the lumber yard of H. H. Hankin at no. 605 Washington by the superintendent of the yard. The macine was placed so that when a gate was opened it would come in contact with the machine and force it to explode. The superintendent fortunately noticed the machine before he opened the gate.

"Next door to the lumber yard at No 6-3 Washington street, is the gunssmith's shop of William Noelte. It was Mr. Noelte who sold a pistol to Mrs. Vincedora Chartrand just before she shot and hilled her husband, John Chartrand, the manager of the Hoboken skating rink"

Mt. Noelte's wife recently received an anonymous letter saying that if Mrs. Chartand were convicted Mr. Noelte would be driven from the city. Mr. Noelte said today that he feared the bomb might have been intended for him and his family. Mr. Hankins son took the infernal machine to the middle of the river on the Barkley street ferry and threw it in. The story was covered by several local papers and the New York Times.

1894:
Jacob Ritter, 461 Eighth Ave., New York, and Hoboken, N. J., is offering a compromise. In response to a call sent out by Hays & Greenbaum, as attorneys for Ritter, a number of the creditors met at the offices of the law firm, 170 Broadway, The creditors present who represented merchandise indebtedness amounting to about $12,000 out of the total liabilities of $16,000, were made an offer of settlement at 40 per cent.; 25 cents cash and the remainder in two notes due in four and eight months. The acceptance of this offer the creditors unanimously agreed to recommend, and papers embodying the proposition are now being circulated. Ritter owes $550 to his bank and also owes for cash lent by his wife and sons. The last two, it is said, -however, are willing to waive their claims if the settlement can thereby be accomplished. About two weeks ago an attachment was issued against Ritter for $200 in favor of Isaac Smith's Sons. This was paid, and Ritter then removed his stock to Hoboken.

In the 1881 Stephens' Eccentric yearbook : Charles G. Am Ende - apothecary and manufacturing druggist - pure chemicals, ready prepared wound dressings, chemicals or batteries, mineral waters in syphons or bottles sodas and selters (sic)- The antiseptic wadding arrests or prevents festering on burns, wounds, cuts etc and affects very rapid healing. It should be kept in every machine shop. - 268 Washington south west corner of 7th

1883:

Charles G. am Ende, Pharmacist and Manufacturing Chemist, No. 268 Washington Street, Hoboken. One of the best known pharmacists in Hoboken is Mr. Charles G. am Ende, who has been established about fifteen years. A native of Germany, he enjoyed the full and rigid apothecary's training required by the German Government, graduating from the University of Jena with the highest possible and very rare mark of excellence, and then continued yet the study of analytical and physiological chemistry. Some of his contributions on the researches made were well received by the press. Brought up with the old-school idea that the important part of a pharmacist's business is the correct filling of physicians' prescriptions, and the necessity of examining and often analyzing the drugs and preparations which enter into their composition, because there exist of almost every preparation and drug, the same as of every other article in commerce, the most different grades, Mr. am Ende perceived that many of them were supplied to the dispensing pharmacist of inferior quality, and occasionally grossly adulterated. He therefore commenced manufacturing full strength fluid extracts, among them the chemical pure salts for his mineral waters and other chemicals, at first for the requirements of his own retail trade, but soon also for some wholesale dealers. The devotion, further, of leisure hours to original investigations yielded some not unimportant, now patented, discoveries, especially in the lines of salts for preservation of food and of wound dressings. The Regalin Salt, for preserving fruits and vegetables, enjoys a constantly increasing reputation on account of the delicate results obtainable, and was awarded a medal and diploma at the Centennial in Philadelphia, the medal of superiority at the American Institute, and others. The borated and other medicated cotton dressings, also the gauze, catgut, etc., received, there being no opposition, the medal of excellence at the American Institute, with the other articles, a silver medal from the State Sanitary Commission, at Waverly, and others. They soon attracted the attention of the surgical and medical authorities in New York and elsewhere, and with their approval and commendation a most extensive application. We now find them in all large cities of the Union, from Boston to San Francisco, in the medical stores of the United States Army, in Canada, the West Indies, etc. Exceedingly convenient and cheap, also much cleaner and more efficient in use than salves, and replacing these, they are kept in many families for cuts and sores, or as a primary dressing until arrival of the physician. These facts, together with the constant supervision of the thousand-and-one necessities of the retail drug store, the compounding of prescriptions, the selection of drugs and merchandise, secured Mr. am Ende the confidence and esteem of all those in the community of Hoboken really able to judge of drugs, and who care for the conscientious fulfillment of the duties of the pharmacist to the public.

Chas. P. Kaegebehn, Importer of Wines, Brandies, German Beers, Deutsche Delikatessen, Whiskies in Bond, Nos. 314 and 316 Washington Street. In a review of the commercial enterprises of Hoboken it will be observed that some houses possess great advantages over others in the same line of business, the result in some cases of longer experience and in others of a greater natural aptitude for the particular trade in which they are engaged. In the business of the importation of wines, liquors, and German beers Mr. Chas. F. Kaegebehn, of Nos. 314 and 316 Washington street, has obtained an enviable reputation for the unrivaled qualities of the merchandise handled by him. Mr. Kaegebehn has had long and valuable experience in this line of industry, and is an expert in its every detail. A native of Germany, he came to the United States in 1854, and in 185- founded his business in New York city, where he continued with success until 1876, when he removed to Hoboken. The spacious premises occupied consist of two stores, each 25x70 feet in dimensions, and well fitted up for the business. They are heavily stocked with a well-selected assortment of champagnes, ports, sherries, brandies, Rhine and Moselle wines, and German beers, all of which are guaranteed to equal in quality and excellence to those of any other first-class contemporary firm. Mr. Kaegebehn also deals heavily in bonded whiskies, and has extensive transactions in this line. In November, 1886, he added a new feature to his business by beginning the importation and sale of Deutsche delikatessen, and keeps a large variety of the choicest goods in this line constantly on hand. The characteristics which regulate the business policy of this house are such as to entitle it to universal consideration, and the extent of its operations has made it a very prominent one in Hoboken. Both a wholesale and retail trade is carried on and the equitable manner in which the business is conducted, as well as the admirable quality and purity of the goods, are guarantees sufficiently obvious why dealers and consumers would do well to place their orders with this reliable establishment.

G. B Brandt Druggist - 700 WASHINGTON STREET (new number) corner of 7th and Washington

1898: Gustav J Popper a recent graduate of the New York College of Pharmacy was a new clerk at Brandts's Pharmacy at 700 Washington street.

1899: Julia A Morris died under suspicious circumstances on November 20, 1899. Her doctor asked for an investigation on the grounds that a mistake had been make by the drug store of G. B. Brandt at 700 Washington street.

"Mrs. Morris, who was seventy-nine years old, died at the home of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Taylor, at 620 Broomfleld street, Hoboken, where she had been visiting for about a month. On November 8 she had a bad fall, injuring her ankle, and was generally upset. Dr. Atwell was called in. The woman complained of pains in the stomach and Dr. Atwell prescribed sulphocarbolate of soda, to be taken in doses of half a teaspoonful in water every few hours. The prescription was filed at Brandt's drug store. The medicine did not act as the physician had expected, and when the woman died, some twelve days later, he blamed the druggist and called for an investigation."

Concerning his action in the matter, Dr. Atwell said to a reporter of this journal: "I do not know whether the druggist Is guilty of a mistake or not. It appears to me that a grievous mistake was made somewhere. I gave a prescription for sulphocarbolate of soda. After taking one dose the patient suffered from violent pains in the stomach, nausea and vomiting. She complained that as she swallowed the medicine it burned her throat. The family sent for me again immediately, and when they showed me the medicine I told them it was wrong. It was a heavy, metallic powder, and in solution was of a yellowish color; it should have been white. The woman's symptoms were those of arsenical poison. I did all that I could for her, but she became gradually worse, and finally died.

"I went to the druggist as soon as I saw the effects of the medicine and asked him what he had put up on the last prescription I sent him (I did not know whether I might have made a mistake). He said he had put up sulphocarbolate of soda. I told him that was right, but asked if he was sure no mistake had been made. He showed me the bottle from which he had taken the powder and it was labeled right at any rate. Mr. Brandt has a good reputation in this city, and I have never heard of any mistakes being made in his pharmacy."

At the pharmacy of G. B. Brandt, 700 Washington street, Hoboken, the clerk who put up the prescription said to the Era reporter:

"I am perfectly sure that I did not make a mistake. I have put up the same sort of prescription before. I took the powder from the stock bottle, and after Dr. Atwell complained about it I made a test of some of it from the same bottle. The reaction was the right one for sulphocarbolate of soda. When the prescription was brought to me I thought the directions called for a pretty largo dose, and I said as much to the woman. It appears to me that if anybody made a mistake it was Dr. Atwell. The sick woman was eighty years old, and the doctor himself said she was suffering from blood poisoning. The newspapers quote him as saying the woman was poisoned by arsenic. I think that is ridiculous. After taking the medicine the woman vomited every time she tried to swallow anything. If the medicine had contained arsenic there would have been no vomiting, and she would have died probably in a few hours. She did not die for nearly two weeks."
The clerk said further that after the woman's death Dr. Atwell took the prescription away from the store. Mr. Brandt did not know this until after the doctor had gone. Mr. Brandt said he was positive his clerk had made no mistiike. The drug was exactly as it had come to him from the wholesaler. (The Pharmaceutical Era, Volume 22)

1899: A jury rendered a verdict that the cause of death ofJulia A Morris was medicine sent by a clerk in the employ of G. Brant of 700 Washington street. The medicine was sent to be chemically tested at two different labs and found to contain "both basic and acid sulphate of mercury". The clerk at the drug store swore he had taken the medicine from a bottle labeled "sulphocarbonate of soda". He was positive he had not made any mistake. The bottle was no longer in the pharmacy. Brandt did not testify.

1900: DRUGGIST DISAPPEARS

A Hoboken Druggist Has Been Missing for a Month

Gustav Brandt, a well known druggist of Hoboken, N. J., who conducted a store at 700 Washington street, disappeared December 3, leaving no explanation behind. He wrote a letter several days following his disappearance to C. O. Hildebrand, who held a mortgage for $400 on his store, telling him to foreclose as he would never “come to Hoboken again.” His wife and two children were practically destitute, but through the kindness of Mr. Hildebrand they will be cared for.

Since Brandt's disappearance all sorts of stories have developed concerning him. It was alleged that he had eloped, but this was proved entirely false; also that he had been gambling heavily and that some of his creditors were pressing him. Lehn & Fink had a judgment against him for over $400 and it is said he had outstanding bills amounting to nearly $4,000.

Mr. Hildebrand has taken charge of the store and Fred. M. Eggers, who has been in Mr. Hildebrand's store at Third and Garden streets, Hoboken, for some time, has been made manager. It was rumored that Brandt had opened a store in New York under an assumed name. (The Pharmaceutical Era, Volume 25)
