The Cookes.—Jay Cooke and his
brother Henry D., are just now talked
about by the people generally—the one
as a very prominent but latterly
successful banker, and the latter as Ex-
Governor of the District of Columbia.
The latter used to be editor of the Ohio
State Journal, and it was while occupy
ing that position that Governor Chase
took a fancy to him that led to his being
transferred to Washington, and to
brother Jay's being put in charge of the
government loans. Henry was a rather
&ill editor and Jaya prosaic banker, but
under the management of their patron
both acquired name and fame and be
came wealthy. Chase had a habit of
gathering round him men who wou Id
not become his rivals, and it was in pur
suance of this idea that he took up the
Cookes and started them on careers that
for a time caused them to tower high
above their fellows.

After chewing and smoking tobacco

flattering expectations that a "treasure" ,
of that kind will be dropped into our lap

proper to surprise us with such a token of
his regard, we will not decline to pocket
the paper and look grateful besides.

with a plume shaded to match *velvets. The face
trimming was very simple yet eery pretty,.. : p -

Another was a rich bronze velvet, with it wreath
of autumn leaves for a face trimming. The ockt -
side trimming being handsome ostrich feathers of
the same and contrasting shade of the veirt.
