HE DROPS INTO POETRY: Lawyer Towns Always Mounts His I(moi When He Tackles m Jsry. Like Mr. Silas Wop?, the intimate friend of Mr. Wcnns Lawyer Miraberiu Lomortino Towns of BrooVJyn occaMcr. aUr drops into pot try. In tho trillion of tho literary vorM ja m rally, ix.try does not par, fcut according to al Laureate Tokens his raur? has romo down very handom It with about $200," 000. This appa--rut anomaly ia crplMnel by tho frxt that Mr. Towns never J S writes poetry, II strictly speak : ' iuz, bnt doggerel : or tne yeiow mixabeau i. towns, dog variety. Mr. Towns, who was a member of tho recent constitutional convention of New York ftat, tells a remarkable tale about how he came to cultivate his 200,000 rau.-e. About ten years ago an old man named .Michael Lrooiie, a lineal descendant of the famous Lrian Lorn, who drove the Danes from Ireland, called at hi3 oGice and promised him a case if ho would agree to sum it up in rhyme. To humor tho old man Mr. Towns complied with his request and summed up the case as follows: In July test, alor.t the tiroo That t ninrry mortals like to tlinf, Th? j.r:tiT.twf. in- a iaarritfl woman, VVnt l rth to h r l.Uiband liowun.

Ho then willed tho law yer property said to Lo worth about $200,000. THE TAMMANY CANDIDATE. : j' . . . . ii Nathan St ran .pJres to the mayoralty of New York City. Nathan Straus, tho Tammany candi date for mayor of New York, is one of a very remarkable family indeed. The father began active lifo as a revolution ist in Germany, refused to be a revolu tionist in Georgia and finally became a very wealthy merchant in New York. Oscar Straus was minister to Turkey in tho first Cleveland administration, and Isidor is a member of congress from New York city, while all threo brothers are noted as personal friends and very warm political supporters cf President Cleveland. Mr. Straus was born in Rhenish Ba varia in 184S and was brought thence to America in 1634, when his father fettled in Talbotton, Ga. The father was a stanch Unionist, and when the war came on he arranged to leave, but the people requested him to remain. The NATHAN st::aus. family moved to New York city soon after the war, and Nathan obtained a good busiuos education. His first ven ture was as a traveling saloman for his father in the crockery line. In 1S74 he took charge of the crockery business of IL Maey fc Co., and later became the leading partner. He is also interet ed in other lines and takes rank among the merchant princes of New York. Mr. Straus is noted also as a philan thropist of a rather original kind. Main taining that one of the great burdens of tho poor of New York is the high prices paid in the petty retail line, he lat winter opened coal depots at which the fuel was sold at cost and last sum mer sold sterilized milk at a nominal price. He is a member cf the Hebrew Benefit ascciation and various clubs and is a park commissioner. The rp-' ljtrr l'.gg. The poj e has a curious egg which he received mo Easter from an English woman. The shell is ivory, tho lining is white satin, and tho yolk is a golden case containing a large ruby set in dia monds The whole is valued at $10,000. Nineteenth Century Gold. Eight thousand tons of gold have been mined throughout the world during the present century.

As far as possible it is wisest to select materials for piano covers wide enough to avoid seams. This ia especially neces eary for the cover of a square piano. Fortunately there are a number of fab rics now obtainable which lend them selves particularly well to this special decoration. The Roman or silk sheeting comes in many shades blue, pink, white, gold, green and terra cotta pinfc. It is about 50 inches wide and is ex tremely soft and pliable. Art satin also comes in many shades. It is nearly as wide as the Roman sheeting. Mail cloth i3 a little heavier than tho others, but equally beautiful, although a little more difficult to embroider upon. Especially COVER FOR UPRIGHT PIASa attractive for embroidery purposes are the colored linens, coming, as they do, in the light and darker shades of color. They are not so wide as tho above men tioned materials, but will bo found par ticularly suitable for tho cover of an up right piano, as they form a beautiful background. China silk is always avail able. As an upright piano stands most fre quently out from the wall and is placed so that the back Is toward the entrance to tho room, where it is much seen, it has become necessary to have drapery for tho back as well as tho top and front. A design of orchids, given in an illus tration in Ladies' Home Journal, shows tho back and top for a cover for an up right piano. It may be worked in two sections. The two portions, embroidered as shown, would bo very handsome, but a selection of tho design may be made and simply tho back embroidered, the front and top being left unadorned, making the cover much less expensive. Much of t tho beauty of the tone of a piano is lost by putting heavy orna ments on the top of the case, a reverber ating sound being causeel by them as well as an injury to tho piano by their weight. Carefully covered with a cloth, embroidered in an artistic manner, upon which may rest the photographs of a few of our famous composers, lightly framed, the piano is sufficiently adorned. Grape Jelly and Preserves. For jelly select ripe grapes, free them from stems and mash them thoroughly. Cook them slowly in a closely covered kettlo for 20 minutes without adding water. Squeeze out tho juice, add a pound of sugar to each pint of juice and boil for 20 minutes. Green grape jelly is made in tho same way. After weighing the sugar heat it in an oven previous to adding to the juice. For preserves free tho fruit from stems and skins, put it into tho preserv ing kettlo and cook until the seeds are loose. Strain tho grapes, weigh with their skins and to every pound allow a pound of sugar. Put the fruit again into the preserving kettle, and when it begins to boil add the sugar and cook 6lowly for half an hour or longer. Spiced grapes are fina To 5 pounds of grapes allow 3 pounds of sugar, a pint of vinegar, a tablespoonf ul of cloves and one of cinnamon. Boil the pulps of the grape and strain; then add skins, vin egar, sugar and spices and boil for an hour. IlecJpe I'or Tomato Sauee. Skin, halve and remove the seeds from a pack of large, ripe tomatoes. Then slice, put in a crock with 4 tablespoon fuls of salt sprinkled between and let them stand 4 hours. Put the tomatoes in a porcelain kettle, add 3 sliced on ions and 4 green peppers and boil soft enough to strain. Return the pulp to the kettle, boil slowly, stirring almost constantly, until it is reduced one-third. Then add a tablespoonful each of gin ger, cloves and salt (if the latter is need ed), one-half a teaspoonful of cayenne and C tablespoonfuls of tarragon vine gar. Let boil 5 minutes, bottle and seal. .Sehool Dress. A serviceable school elrpss for a young girl may bo xnado in rough serge of brown hue and trimmed with wide, black openwork braid. A pattern for this elress is suggested in The Household. The front of tho bodice is made in looso blouse shape, which is becoming to the figure, while the back is plain and SCHOOL DKESS l"OK LITTLE GIRL. buttoned from the neck to waist. Below the belt is a deep circular rufiie, trim med with the braid, which is opened in front and gives something of the basque effect Three overlapping caps, trimmed with the braid, are placed over the top of the coat sleeves.
