much because he had any predilection
for any one except horaeracing but
because he thought that a gentleman in
his position should lead in Buch matters.
Personally, he was rather indolent and
extremely luxurious in his tastes. Per
haps one reason why he succeeded bo
well in everything he did was that he
really didn't care much whether he won.
Sometimes Lorillard's cunning over
reached itself. He was having a game
of bluff at Delmonico's with Mr. George
Osgood about their yachts, Vesta and
Fleetwing "I'll race you to England!"
"Good! I'll sail the race in December!"
"Make it 810,000 a side!" but the talk
would have amounted to nothing had
not Mr. James Gordon Bennett asked
that Henrietta be let in. Lorillard
knew that Henrietta was the slowest
boat, and raised the wager to 880,000
sure that he had at least one of his op
ponents beaten before the start, He
shrewdly Bent Vesta on the southern
passage, to take advantage of the south
ern seas and lighter winds; but Captain
Samuels Bteadily held Henrietta on the
steamer track, and won cleverly, much
to Lorillard's disgflBt. He did not sail
on Vesta, nor Mr. Osgood on Fleetwing,
and cheers were given here and in Eng
land for Mr. Bennett, "the only man
who eails on his own boat."
On one occasion, after a night of heavy
play at "bac" not tobac at which he
had been a big loser, a gayly capari
soned mule, with jingling belle, was
driven by the country club house where
the play had taken place. On the side
of the wagon was painted in big letters:
CHEW LORILLARDS PLUG.
"Pierre!'' exclaimed on6 of the party.
"Here, quick! Here's one of your traps
"Yee," was the slow rejoinder; "if it
wasn't for these traps I couldn't afford

Of late years Pierre Lorillard dropped
almost completely out of sight, so far as
his old friends and haunts knew him.
He was quite aware of the ravages his
incurable disease was making on his
health, strength and good looks, and was
too proud to follow as an invalid where
he had always been the leader of men.
His summers were spent among com
parative strangers on the race tracks of
England, and no one knew exactly when
he came or went. He got the greatest
comfort out of his Florida house boat,
on which, with a few old cronies, he
generally passed his winters. I see
that his fortune is set down at 823.000,-
000. I should imagine that was a wild

and devoted her lite to charitable work.
Her famouB beauty is unimpared, but in
the heavily veiled woman who drives
about in a modest little brougham, and
occupies a very unpretentious house in
Washington square, few of the rollick

today recognize the beauty who ruled
society in the last generation. If Tux

THE COSY CORNER.
By La Touche Hancock.
A little cosy corner
in a tittle cosy flat,
With scimitars and Turkish pipes
and every kind of hat ;
With pictures, guns of various sorts,
and brie a brae galore,
And multi eoloredcarpet
upon a polished floor;
Electric tights, rose-colored lamps,
and everything in trim
To please her spouse's oft-expressed
and comfortable whim.
He wore a quiet smile of joy,
as peacefully he sat
In the tittle cosy corner
In the little cosy flat.
" Of course, you know, you must not smoke,
for tt would be to bad
To spoil the lovely curtains,
which were brought from Hyderabad ;
No drinking either. You won't mind,
for you are sure to spill
Your B. and S. upon the floor.
You won't? Oh, yes, you will!
And off the sofa, you'll take care,
I hope, to keep your shoes,
Now, darling these are little things
Pm sure you can't refuse."
He wore a. sickly smile of joy,
but you'll be sure at that
He "blessed" the cosy corner
in the tittle cosy flat.
