Atchison, formerly pas tor of Grace Church here, who Is a fine ly educated musician and organist as well, is now In charge of St. Luke's at Du buque, la. Before leaving the city Ellers piano house accepted his old piano here in part payment for a new Weber Grand to be delivered at Dubuque, la. The fine new piano was duly delivered and in a letter Just received from Mr. Atchison, he speaks most highly of the new instru ment, as follows: "Dubuque, la., Dec. 12. Our beautiful new piano, the Weber Grand, number B, arrived last Thursday, and is a thing of beauty and a Joy forever. All who see and hear it are charmed with its I perfections. This Is a very musical city, j and we expect to make good use of our beautiful new piano this Winter in the way of musicians and little 'at homes.' Permit me to thank you for the courteous and honorable way In which you have treated ua throughout this transaction. You deserve to prosper. Mrs. Atchison Joins me in thanks and good wishes.

Mr. Ellers has for many years been prominently connected with leading piano manufacturers as wholesale traveling- representative and is personally ac quainted in nearly every city in the United States, and hence It Is a simple matter for them to agree to deliver pianos at long-distance points.

Not So Common Here as In England, but Well to Have. Although "5 o'clock tea" is becoming a recognized institution In 'many American homes, as it is In England, the "cozy" Is not looked upon here as an essential part of the outfit as it la on the other side of the Atlantic. The English mis tress of the teatable considers this cover of embroidered cloth, velvet or silk as necessary and lmportantiaisthe tea pot Itself. It Is claimed that .three brewing of the stimulating, fragrant leaves 13 not alone improved by the use of the cozy, which prevents the precious vapors from escaping, but it serves to keep the pot at a high degree of heat, and connois seurs agree that this popular beverage should be served very hot, whether the accompaniment be cream or, following the Russian fashion, a slice ot lemon and sugar. The most familiar form of cozy adapt able for various styles of pots, says the Brooklyn Eagle, is made with two pieces, each shaped like a half-circle, joined along the rounding edge, the seam, being concealed by cording to match or har monize with -the outside material and lin ing. This style of cozy may be adjusted to fit any kind of tea-brewing receptacle. Cloth, embroidered In gold or sliver and lined with delicately tinted silk, velvet and silk combinations, and fancy bro caded silks and satins, are suitable mate rials for the construction of this useful adjunct of the tea table. Particularly good effects are secured when the cozy matches the coloring of the tea bet, for odd cups and saucers are no longer the fashion on the afernoon tea table, and it should always harmonize with the general color tone. For tea pots of particular shape, cozies of special shape are made, a bell form be ing excellent for the fiat, squatty teapots that are fashionable Just now. The bell snaped cozy Is made by joining several triangular sections, making the circular base a couple of inches broader than the teapot It is Intended to cover, so It can be easily dropped on or removed. An in terlining of sheet wadding, carefully cut and fitted In, is placed between the out side material and the silk lining. If the outter fabric Is lined before combining with the wadding and silk, the cozy will be better shaped and retain Its form a longer time. Properly made of attrac tive material, the cozy is an artistic ac cessory for the modern tea table, with its dainty appointments. Virginia Is experimenting with the dis pensary system of selling liquor, on ac count of the state and town. Franklin having been selected for the experiment. The commonwealth gets one-fourth of the profits and the town, the remainder. Under this system the liquor Is sold In original packages and must not be con sumed on the premises. And fools who came to scoff remained to pray. Goldsmith, 'The Deserted Village."
