If rxni.-et, the 'Paristain couturier, was able to amass so valuable a collection of art treasures of the eighteenth cen? tury that in; realized no less than j I, 100,000 by its recent sale at the Hotel DrUOt, which.

He halt! plenty of opportunity of "spotting" articles of vertu when making profes fional visits to his clients' houses, either to devise, freMi "creations" or Id some finishing and toiling touches ;.? a costume. Having expressed his willingness, to accept some art object in payment of a bUl, ho would never offer any price, but would Insist on referring that ques? tion to a couple, of experts, one of them ?being his own nominee, and they would settle the value between them. This won for him a repuwion for fair deal? ing, and .is. moreover, his customers iic-IteA'cd him to 'be extremely discreet, they often recommended him ro old families of provincial nobility In finan? cial difficulties. In this manner nis art collections be? came year by year more famous, and helped to advertise his dressmaking business. Why he. should have wished I to gei r;.| of his treasures is some? thing of a mystery. According to some the sale was merely prompted by a de j sire to unload at a propitious moment. I slnco just now there is a craze forr eighteenth century art. Others insist that the lo.-s of a fair friend to whom he, wad devoted le.fi him with an intol? erable sense, of loneliness amid his once so cherished a-rt collections. Whatever the cause may foe. however, he has re? tained some of his ChOJCe&t places? enough to fill d. good sized salon, and he proposes to dovote a portion of the ?Tlch proceeds of the sale to the Im? provement of hi'> already famous I library.
