New York, Dee. 30 When Charles T. erkes, the capitalist, who died yester day, made his will several years ago he announced that he had left his col lection of Rictures and objects of art and his two. houses at Fifth avenue and Sixty-eighth fetreet in this city to the Metropolitan Museum of Xft. This property is worth about $5,000,000 The houses themselves are a veritable art museum. It is said among his friends that this provision of his will remains unaltered. Among M,r. Yerkes' most treasured possessions is a collection of Oriental rugs that is said to be the finest and most costly in the world, even exceed ing in value and beauty the collection of the shah of Persia or that in the British museum. These rugs are 3 in number and are hung upon the walls siiiciy mat. jvir. xerkes had built especially for them. . Several years ago he had the designs copied in their original colors and re duced to book form. The paintings are comprised in a set of 10 volumes, one of which was to re main in the Yerkes collection and the nine others to be presented to the most famous museums of the world. Each rug was copied separately and each painting is about two feet long. Among the rugs is the "Holy Carpet," for which Mr. Yerkes paid $60,000. Some of the others are represented as almost priceless treasures. In 1897 Mr. Yerkes purchased and re built the large mansion at Fifth ave nue and Sixty-eighth street. In this he put his collection of painting's, said at that time to be the most valuable pri vate collection in this country. He also bought the house adjoining his in East Sixty-eighth street and made the two into one. The architect described the first and main house as costing $600,000, its furnishings $500,000 more, which with the,cost of the lot made the total nearly $1,500,000. Mr. Yerkes' paintings at that time were valued at $1,500,000 and have been greatly added to since. SOUTH TOPEKA. (Leave Items for this column with Kim ball Printing Co.. 912 N. Kansas ave.
