Cafe Mat, N. J., July 13. At last the rainy
season ecms over at this famous resort, and
hundreds of visitors are flocking here by every
avenne of approach. The Pennsylrania Rail
road Company reports a much heavier traffic
to date than at the same period in previous
years. The steamboats which run from Phila
delphia and from Baltimore have a like record.
The season has begun in earnest, although it
'will be three weeks before the exodus to this
resort will show its full force. Reports from
various hotels, many of which have made an
unusual effort this year to insure increased
comfort and convenience for their patrons,
Ehow that these houses have already engaged
most of their available rooms for the height of
the season, nhicb sets in about the last week
of this mon,th.
Thi. last week the people who have visited
Cape May have rushed into the water like
ducks. The temperature of the ocean has been
unusually high, and the surf so far has been
just the sort to attract bathers. It has not
been b'gh enough to knock them about un
comfortably, for we are proud to say, it never
does get that way. nor low enough to make surf
bathing a mockerv. The beach is crowded
everyday, and especially on Sundays, by either
bathers ur spectators.
The question of taking dogs In the surf is a
topic-olten discussed by those who are fond of
ocean dips. Of late tnere has been a tendency
on tbepart of a few to take their pet terriers
into trie water and wash w elk fleas on of them.
The Mayor will stop this business shortly by
making an example of someone. The dogs can
be,vasbed somewhere else.
Ife at the hotels is a joy this season. At the
htockton and Concreas are two verv pood
orchestras, and clustered about them at per
formance time are crowds of interested
listeners, while perhaps up in one corner of the
porch will be found the summer time gentle
men, wno in winter may earn so per week and
board himself, flirting with a millionaire's
daughter, or what may be worse, capturing her
heart. In the fall they may elope, perhaps.
Cape May contains millions, or, what u bet
ter, the possessors of millions. At Congress
Hall George W. Able, of the Baltimore Sun,
-north all the way from $6,000,000 to r.0,000,000.
is resting w ith his family for the season. Jacob
G. Neane is another millionaire who is there
for the season, lie is a member of the great
Philadelphia shipbuilding firm of Neane &
Leavy, who built the first iron steamship that
ever steamed over water, and some say he is
worth twoor three millions. Edward C Knight,
the big Philadelphia sugar refiner, who has
been in business more than 52 vears, has a costly
cottage on Congress place. He is reputed to
have made two millions in the late spring rise
in sugar, and his income Is fS. 000 per dav. Some
etimate him to be worth tl8.000.0oa William
King, & Philadelphia oil merchant, spends most
of his summer days with his family on Jackson
ftre(t and Beach avenue. He could sjpn his
name to a check for a million, and you could
get it cashed in any Philadelphia bank. Will
iam C Allison, who was once a poor boy, and
Mho learned his trade in the car shops in Phila
delphia, is now reputed to be worth $5,000,000,
which be has earned by sheer bard work, and
is now the owner of a big car manufactory.
He is with his family enjoying Cape May life
in a fcouth Lafayette street cottage. Henry C.
.Lea, the Philadelphia book publisher, and au
thor of many articles, is a man of bright liter
ary attainments, as well as a millionaire six
times over. He lately gave $50,000 to the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania. He spends his morn
ings at bis Grant street summer home at his
Nearly 175 athlete from the athletic club of
the Schuylkill Navy, the Manhattan Athletic
Club, the .New York Athletic Clnb, the Staten

Princeton, Andover. and University of Penn
sylvania took part in the third annual summer
games which took place at the Cape May City
Athletic Park this afternoon, under the rules
of the Amateur Athletic Union, of which the
Cape May club is a member. The Cape May
Athletic Association supports the Cape May
ball team, which Is picked from the star play
ers ot Harvard, Princeton. Andover and other
strong amateur clubs. This club won 23 out of
26 games last season, and has not lost a single
one this year. The club has done a great deal
toward advertising Cape May.
Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore, and Arch
bishop Rvan, of Philadelphia, have been rest
ing here from ecclesiastical duties this week.
They have enjoyed the hospitality of Mr. C.
Thomas, a Philadelphia grocer, and have taken
a drive every afternoon in the carriages of

HOSTS AT ATLANTIC.

Atlantic Citt. N. J., July IS. The first

rived at the Atlantic City depot at noon yester
day. Since then every train from the West
brings a hostot health and pleasure seekers
from the great gas city. ThePittsburgerwho
has never before spent a season at Atlantic

present summer at this delightful resort indi
cates a larger attendance of fittsburge'rs than
On nearly every sailboat that skips the
waters, at every bathing house, In every garden
of amusement, at every depot and nearly every
hotel a Pittsburger is to found. On the surf
one runs up against them as he does the waves.
By the end ot next week the number will be
largely increased, telegrams and letters from
Pittsburgers, for rooms, are arriving every
Everything here seems to have been given

Plltsbarseri Summering nt Chautnuqna
Elesant Structures In the 11 re.
tcoRnr-si-ONDEXCE or TnspisrATcn.1
CnACTAVQUA, July 13. Pittsburg Is well
represented at Chautauqua. Many of our peo
ple have left their city homes for a summer at
this unique watering place. Children are here
to revel in the sand; hard-working people to
recruit and young people to have a goad time
generally. Mr. J. H. Aiken and family are
stopping at the Hotel Atheneum. Other Pitts
burgers registered at the hotel are John P.
Mclntyreand George W. Acklin. Rev. John
H. Miller, Clarence Miller and Misses Laura,
Margaret and Nannie Miller, from Alleghany
College, Meadvllle, formerly of Pittsburg, are
making this "City in the Woods" their home
for the summer. John L. High, one of Pitts
burg's young men, who has been attending
Amherst, is spending the summer months here
with his parents. Miss Anna McCreary,
known to Pittsburgers through her sweet con
tralto voice, is visiting Chautauqua. Mrs. M.
E. Layton and son are to be here until Septem
ber. Also, Mrs. H. M. Wright .and daughter
and Mrs. E. P. S. Wright and children.
Every season, of course, shows some im
provement here fn the way of buildings. This
5 car has not been behind in that respect. The
handsomest cottage on the grounds has been
built since last summer. It is owned by Mr.
Rockwell, of Warren. Pa., who has good
reason to take pride in his summer home, -It
is large, perfect in its appointments, and beau
tifully finished, contrary to the style of the
average Chautauqua building. The cottages
recently built present a striking contrast to
tne ruue. nut-luce structures mat nave stooa
from the beginning of Chautauqua. The fire
two j ears ago proved a great blessing by de
stroyingmanyof these rickety places of shel
ter, but a largo number still remain. They are
huddled together in certain sections, plainly
saying, "Misery loves company," and are
interspersed w ith newer buildings, as though
the fever of improvement had broken out in a
sort ol rash. .Devout Chautauquans pray for
another fire. As it was once neccessary to
burn the but to roast the pig, bo it now seems
necessary to burn the hut to get a respectable
Rev. T. L. Flood, of Meadvllle, has erected a
building for the Assembly Herald, designed
solely for business purposes. It is one of the
largest structures here. An important new
building is the Memorial Hall, built by Mr.
Kellog, of Troy, in memory of his mother, and
used for the Kindergarten, the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, wood carving,
drawing and other special classes.
We cannot but notice the improvement in
public buildings in the last few years. Instead
of the Bedouin tent, under whose uncertain
shelter the normal classes were held uncer
tain, because the wind regularly blew it over
we have the large, convenient Normal Halt
Instead of the whitewashed board build
ing, with its undulating floor and leaky roof,
that served as a School of Languages, we have
the imposing college building of Moorish archi
tecture, standing on a little rise of ground,
where it commands a fine view of the lake, and
where there is more sunshine to the square
inch than in any other part of Chautauqua.
Bishop Vinceat is in California. He will
probably reach here about the 20th of this
month and remain through the season. In his
absence his son George presides over Chau
tauqua, and fills that position as well as anyone
but the bishop himself.
One of tbe new attractions is the German
Cottage. It Is a notable experiment and all
will watch the result with interest. Last sea
son Prof. J. Herman Schmitz, the German in
structor, with that tinge of tbe impracticable
that is apt to characterize a German enthusi
ast, proposed to the management that they build
a large hotel, form a stock company to run it,
engage German servants onlv, and open it to
these desiring a practical knowledge of Ger
man, to be gained by an exclusive use of that
language in the hotel. The management, more
cautious, was unwilling to attempt so ventur
ous a scheme, but thoy were willing to compro
mise. A large cottage has, therefore, been
rented for the same purpose, and the plan is
being put to the test. If it succeed the desired
hotel will probably be built in the near future.
So far the plan is working admirably. A
French cottage is also being run on the same
Tbe railway station, which stood at the north
end of the grounds, tbe flat roof of which af
forded a pleasant promenade, has, for some
reason, been recently removed, leaving a very
unsightly spot a rough road, terminating in
an absurd little building called, by courtesy, a
station, but as the latter provides no shelter,
it seems to have been put there to look at.
Undoubtedly a better arrangement will be
made. In the meantime a person can pass in
ana out at win, ucicei or no ticxeu xne man
agement has carefully provided gates, which
the railway employes as carefully keep open,
and a frcirht train standing on the track leaves
plenty or room for passing on either side. This
makes the perfected ticket system appear
something of a farce.
After all. Chautauquans are ouite human.
Tbe papers containing accounts of the Sullivan
and Kilrain fight sold rapidly here on Tues
day. The Chautauqua College of Liberal Arts,
the Chautauqua Teachers' Retreat, and the
special classes are under headway. Tbe facul
ty are in good humor, which indicatis, beyond
a doubt, that au unusually prosperous season
It is a curious fact that no one from Pitts
burg is registered in the College or Retreat.
Pittsburg evidently takes tho stand that cram
ming overworked teachers andmiulstera during
tbe summer months, If not injurious, is atleast
The lecture conrse is up to the, usual standard.
So far Miss Jane Meade Welch, of Buffalo, has
been tbe favorite speaker. Tbe course of lec
tures by Prof. Adams, ot Johns Hopkins, now
in progress, are excellent for students of his
tory, but do not attract the average person.
Entertainment has been provided in tbe shape
of readings by Prof. Cumnock, an evening of
song and readings by Misses Glenn and 11c
Burry. and a burlesque performance.
Wednesday evening 00 attended the general
prayer meeting, and about 2,000 were present at
the spelling match. People care more for the
construction of the language than tbe welfare
of their souls, tbe world over.
The soloist for July. Miss Isadora B. Smith, a
craauate ot the New England Conservatory of
Music, has appeared once, and has made a
favorable impression. .
The primitive simplicity of Chautauqua is
charming. We have for instance one mall a
day. The advantage of this somewhat ancient
arrangement will be readily seen It saves all
contusion, you have to make but one journey
to the postoffice instead of lour or five. Truly,
it was wise forethought that planned this.

Andrew's began to ring out merrily, the
bridal party arrived at tbe church, when,
to tbe time ot the wedding march, the proces
sion slowly passed up the aisle. First came
the bridemalds and groomsmen, then tbe fair
young bride leaning upon the arm of her
fiance. Attho chancel rail bridemaids and
goomsmen separated to allow the main partici
pants to enter the sanctuary, where at the foot
ot tbe high altar their solemn vows were

In this city. She was beautiful in disposition
as well as in person, and made friends wherever

ding, whereas there is little or no romance con
nected with It unless it be in tbe fact of Mr.
Schaffner falling in love with the noble girl
who accompanied tbe remains of her deceased
relative, bis son, across tbe broad Atlantic.
Tbe numerous friends of tbe young lady wish
her a pleasant voyage to her new home, as

A batheb furious report comes from Paris
to the effect that of a large exhibit of curios
said to have been from Morocco, Tunis and
Algiers, shown at the Exposition, the greater
part were found to be counterfeit products
manufactured In the city. It Is also stated
that the French people engaged in the in
dustrial arts are underselling tbe native Afri
cans and driving them from their domestic
Chbough the medium of the Decorator and
FurnUher Colonel J. A. Price, ot Scranton,
Pa has offered three prizes aggregating the
sum of 8100 for the best designs showing adap
tations of the maize or Indian corn for purposes
of tbe architectural and industrial arts. The
competition for these prizes is free from any
conditions, except as to time, which is limited
to December 6, and designs may be intended
for production in any material in which art
combines with Industry In the process of man
ufacture. i A landscape with sheep and the sheen on
a bridge is a favorite style of composition with
Mr. A. Bryan Wall, and such is the character
of theWrkhe has at present on view at Gil
lespie's. The canvas is smaller than the ones
which he most frequently uses, and this may
account for his having handled tbe work with
an exceptional carelessness. The best points
about tbe picture are the sky and distant hill
side, in which is yerr cleverly suggested a
Seat deal more than is absolutely delineated.
) a strong contrast to the merit ot the
balance of tbe work attention may be directed
to the drawing of the animals which follow
their leader with more than sbeeplike regular
ity and precision, and carry upon their hacks
more than their share of white paint The
work as a whole bears a strong character of
originality, and would form an interesting sub
ect even with the sheep omitted.
A bathes large upright landscape by Miss
Voigtly, shown at Young's, bears evidence of
some ability on the part of the artist Al
though of a slightly muddy tone of color in
parts, and lacking in finish and completeness
of detail throughout still, notwithstanding
these facts, the picture has many points of
merit and, regarded as the work of a student
is deserving ot, considerable praise. Among
the first and leading features of merit may be
mentioned tbe general arrangement and the
completeness ot the work as a whole. The
freedom of handling Is also worthy of note.and
tbe absence ot anything like smallness or pet
tiness is very commendahle. Judging from
this as a specimen ot tbe work one would be
very apt to conclude that Miss Voigtly has
quite a fair share of native talent i and might
be expected ere long to develop considerable
strength in the use of the brush.
Two paintings by W. S. Russell, tbe author
of a still life noticed in this column a few
weeks ago, are shown at Boyd's. One of them,
"An Old Polander," is a study of the head of
an old man, and in the freedom and rough
ness of the handling seems scarcely like the
work of tbe same hand as the still life re
ferred to, which was notable for the hardness
and precision of Its lines. The greatest merit
of this study lies in the free style of its execu
tion, and its worst fault In the Indication of the
eyes, or rather in their lack of Indication, for
these organs, so essential to a complete physi
ognomy, appear to have been blotted out rather
than drawn as leading features of the face.
However, as tbe model is said to have been
blind, this is a fault rather In tbe choice of a
subject than the execution: that is. It was a
fault to select a blind subject for a study of
this character. It it is desired to make a study
of the head ot a sightless person tbe work
sbonld be so bandied that tbe loss of vision
should be clearly expressed and not
left In doubt The second picture rep
resents a barrel of apples thrown upon its side
against an old brick wall from which the plas
ter covering has partly fallen away. The end
ot tbe barrel has been opened, allowing the
fruit to roll freely out upon the ground. This
picture has some very pleasant qualities about
it but it also has its faults, not tbe least ot
which is a certain smoothness and sleekness
about tbe painting ot tbe apples wblcu makes
them look as though studied from waxen mod
els In pUoe ot the real fruit
'The Eteseio Scmo," by C. R. Grant and
"Naming the Day," by Francis C. Jones, are
two fine oil paintings that are worth going out
of one's way to see. They are both on view at
Boyd's, and are of especial interest because
they are the originals of etchings by the same
titles which are well known in this city. As re
gards the technical qualities of drawing and
coloring tbe two pictures, though by different
artist, are of very nearly equal merit but in
the matter of conception and composition
tbe painting by Mr. Grant is somewhat- tbe
finest work. The scene Is one in an old-fashioned
borne, but in spirit the work is one which
is ever new, though at the same time as old as
humanity. In the pose of tbe figures of the
three young women, one seated at the Instru
ment another standing near by with a sheet of
music open before her, and the third seated
quietly to one side an interested listener, there
is a fine expression of grace and beauty ot com
position. The picture is keyed in a low. almost
a cold, tone of color, but there exists through
out a delicate harmony which is not 'disturbed
by a elugle false note. The picture by Mf. Jones
is in some respects similar and in others radi
cally different from the one noticed above. It is
of a warmer tone ot color and filled with a
bright but soft and diffused light which gives
it a very pleasant and agreeable quality. One
would require to know the title of this work in
order to divine its meaning, as the young
couple might as easily bo supposed to be par
taking of a light breakfast in their own home
some time alter marriage as that tbe young
lady was entertaining tbe gentleman on an
occasion previous to that event There is
some fine painting in this picture and the
composition is good so far asltgoes.lt Is of a
pleasant and agreeable character, but it is a
pleasantness such as attaches to many ordinary
works as distinguished from that which Is
great, and it is lacking in that subtllty and
refinement which makes each great work
stand alone and different from all ottters what
soever. If yon have not smoked the La Ferla del

BATES TO THE ENCAMPMENT.
Railroads Refuse to Make Any Farther Re
dactions Thousands of Comrades Will
Stay Away Gossip of the Posts The
Sons of Veterans.
The railroads" leading into Milwaukee are
still obdurate, and trill, in all probability,
remain so throughout. They still refuse to
make a rate at which a large number of
veterans could afford to attend the Milwaukee
Encampment and as a result of this action the
departments of Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illi
nois, Kentucky, Nebraska, Minnesota and
Wisconsin have joined in a manifesto through
their commanders to the comrades of their de
partments, setting forth in detail the action of
the railroads, and calling upon all their com
rades, except their regularly chosen represen
tatives, to refrain from attending the sessions
of the National Encampment at Milwaukee.
The railroads seem to be- standing directly in
their own light which they bare -not yet dis
covered. They appear to be of tbe opinion
that because the encampment is to bo held at
Milwaukee all the old soldiers and their fam
ilies must go no matter what the rate. This is
a mistake. It is a fact that there is no occasion
whatever for any attendance at Milwaukee
outside of tbe National Encampment proper,
which consists of the past and present national
officers, the past and present department com
manders and one delegate for every LOOO com
rades. This makes somewhere between 600 and
800 who alone are compelled to be present at
the sessions ot the National Encampment
While tbe same disadvantage does not obtain
against tbe comrades of the East which pre
vails against those of the West because ot the
limited rate in the East being somewhat lower
than that of the West vet the refusal of the
traffic association to fix a 1-cent rate per mile
will be cause sufficient to keep many of the
Eastern comrades and tbeir families from vis
iting Milwaukee during tbe meeting of tbe en
campment Of course great disappointment
will follow to the citizens of Milwankee who
have made elaborate arrangements to enter
tain a large crowd.

HAPPY NED PBI0E.
How He Left His Gl'rl Wife to Become
Fanny Davenport's Husband Set
Aside for a Later Favorites
A Romance of!he State.
WRITTEN FOE TOE DISPATCH.:
I saw Melborne MacDowell the other day,
He is the latest husband of Fanny Daven
port, and her leading man for next season;
a tall, good-looking fellow, not a great actor,
but by no means a bad one. He is another
example of the good luck possible when one
finds favor in the eyes of the star.
What memories the meeting recalled of his
immediate predecessor in tbe role ot husband
to tbe capricious Fanny, poor Ned Price,
At one time there was no jollier, whole-souled
fellow in the entire profession than he. No
one could relate a good story in such inimitable
style; no one had a keener appreciation of a
lest The brightest people of the twin pro
fessions sought his company. He was a favor
ite with all classes and the idol of bis wife
sweet Kittle Baker.
What a couple they were. Ned was never so
contented as when they werrtogether, and as
for her it was an open secret tbat she actually
worshiped him. Fortune was i.ot as kind to
tbesaas she might have been in those days, and
what sacrifices tbey made for each other. "To
be as happy as Ned Price" was to have perfect
Poor Ned. One day his evil genius led him to
accept an engagement with the Davenport com-
Eany. The star Instantly fell in love with

wish was to bare. She showered favors
upon him, increased his salary, and pro
moted him from a subordinate to the lead

for awhile, bnt alas, he was only a man. sus
ceptible to flattery, as the species always have
been, and finally yielded, he Instituted pro
ceedings for divorce from his wife.whlch, after

became the husband of Miss Davenport But
from tbat day he was a changed man. He
deserted his old haunts, shunned his former
companions, became gloomy, morose. He bad

THE TEAINS HE DOESN'T LIKE.
An Engineer Telia the Kinds of Bans Ho
Doesn't Want Anything to do With.
Savannah H ews.
Said an old railway engineer the other day:
"There are three kinds of trains tbat I do not
want to have anything to do with. One Is the
pay train. You never know when yon will
overtake the section bands. You will be going
at tbe rate of 40 miles an hour, away you go
around a curve and you will dash by the boss
and bands and have to back back to them.
There is always a good deal of talk over the
wages and much time is taken up. The next
unpleasant train to handle is an excursion
train. Everyone living along the line of road
knows you by seeing yon come by every day,
and they think you know them as weH. When
on an excursion tbey presume upon their
friendship to endeavor to ride on the engine.
No other place will do them. The engineer has
to refuse them, as it would amount to docking
his wages from 30 to 60 days if he complied, as
it is positively against the rules ot the road.
The persons denied the privilege always feel
bard about it and look upon the engineer as
unaccommodating. The last and worst of all,
however, is the officer's train. If you run slow
they say you are scared and fear to run fast If
you make good time they say you are careless
and reckless, and want to kill somebody. You
can't suit them."
A STRONG ATTRACTION.
The Streets or New York and Article 47 at
Tbe Kilday Company will be here again this
week, appearing in the "Streets of New York"
for the first three days of the week, and tbe
"Cre ole, or Article 47" for the balance of tbe
engagement. As Badger In tbe "Streets of
New York." Frank'Hilday has no equal, and
plays the part in an easy, graceful and forcible
manner. The play will be produced in an elab
orate style, including special scenery and
realistic mechanical effects. It is a drama tbat
has pleased tbe people for a quarter of acen,
tury, and truthfully reflects life in the great
metropolis. The company is thoroughly la
nullar with the drama, as they have been pre
senting it for several seasons. On Thursday
the "Creole" will be substituted with Miss
Nannie Palmer in tbe title role. It is the play
in which Lillian Soencer raado her last appear
ance here, and calls for tbe most Intense emo
tional acting. Miss Palmer is equal to all de
mands, as be,r rendition of tbe role is said to
compare favorably with tbat of any other
actress who has assumed the role. Tbe
Belasco version of the drama will be used,
which is a better and a stronger play than the
one presented by Clara Morris.

ladies Who Grace the Positions
Held by Their Husbands
IN EKGLAND'S POLITICAL WORLD.
Lady Salisbury, Mrs. Gladstone, Lady
Aberdeen, Lady Granville,
LADY DDFFEHI5 AND A PAIR AMERICAN
tconExsrojtDKNci or the dispatcii.i
Lojtdon', July6. Under the rival leader
ships of Lady Salisbury on the one hand,
and Mrs. Gladstone on the other, all the
more politically minded and officially con
nected of society ladies find a vent for their
ambitions, which in former days would have
cone to the creation ot a "salon." Politi
cally speaking, "salons" are a thing of the
past in the London of to-dav 1 mean in the
sense in which Lady Palmerston held a
salon. The wives of all public men enter
tain as a matter of course, when their hus
bands are in office, but there is no special
honor attached to the invitation of
any particular hostess. Any budding poli
tician of Conservative tendencies is certain,
sooner or later, to find himself shak
ing hands with Lady Salisbury, Lady
Knutlord, or Mrs. W. H. Smith; while, if
he is a Liberal, he will receive cards from
Lady Hayter, Lady Stanhope, and Lady
Uranville, who do most of the official enter
taining in the Liberal interest when their
party is out ot office. I don't think women
care about a political salon in the way they
once did, so many other paths to success are
open to them nowadays. They trade more on
their intellect and less on their looks: and,
instead of buying voters with kisses as did tbe
beautiful Duchess of Devonshire, when she
canvassed for Charles J. Fox. they stump the
country and make speeches with as much
ardor as their male friends.
Nevertheless, there are four posts under the
Crown to which, for social reasons, ambitions
women aspire for their husbands. These are:
Tbe Lord Lieutenancy of Ireland, tbe Vice
Royalty of India, the Governor Generalship ot
Canada, and the Foreign Secretaryship. In
each of these cases the official is held to repre
sent Her Majesty, and his wife, as a result has
an important role to clay. Indeed, the fitness
of the wife is a very important consideration
In tbe selection of the husband. This is partic
ularly the case with the Irish Viceroy, and of
recent years Lady Aberdeen, Lady'Spencer,
Lady Carnarvon and Lady Londonderry, who
have in turn dispensed royal hospitality from
Dublin Castle, owed their positions as Vice
Queen almost as much to their own personal
charms as to the political aptitude of their
lords and masters.
FOKEIGK SECBETAEIE3' WrVES.
The wife of the Foreign Secretary not only
makes all foreign and diplomatic presentations
tothe Queen, but on Her Majesty's birthday
she receives royalty and the whole diplomatic
and aristocratic world in the splendid rooms
at the Foreign Office on Downing street In
London itself her social position is qulta
unique, ana in the last ten years only three
ladies have attended to it Lady Salisbury,
Lady Granville and Lady Rosebery.
Of the three, it is Lady Granville who must
take the palm as tbe nearest ideal of the official
hostess. Tall and graceful, she receives with a
charming manner and a friendly smile for
everybody. She is his Lordship's second wife,
and must be very much less than half his age:
but tbe happiness of tbe marriage Is shown by
tbe fact that Lord Granville, when he was For
eign Secretary. liked to hare his wife and
children in his library while be transacted
State business greatlv to the distraction of
tbe busy secretaries. Lady Granville takes no
part independently of her husband. She does
tbe grande dame to perfection, and is content
to leave more active work to others.
Lady Salisbury is now a stout middle-aged
lady, rather shabbily dressed on ordinary occa
sions, but with a distinctly imposing carriage.
She receives at tbe Foreign Office with stately
courtesy, dispenses sumptuous hospitality in
that most exquisite of ola Enzlish homes. Hat
field House, and. for the rest Is a presiding
genius of the Primrose League. She is very
religious, and a strict Church woman, and may
always be seen sailing np the aisle or st haul's
Cathedral on Sunday afternoons whenever
Canon Liddon's wonderful voice is to be heard
ringing out under the great dome.
Mrs. Gladstone has done as much as any
woman can for her husband'ssuccess. She has
often been laughed at for a certain odd abrupt
ness of manner, and a cheerful indifference as
to personal appearance; but throughout tbe
Liberal half of the nation she is undoubtedly
regarded with a strong feeling ot personal
MB. GLADSTONE'S MATE.
Ih many points hnsband and wife resemble
each other. Mrs. Gladstone has the same re
ceptive and open mind, tbe same faculty for
learning all her life through, which has always
distinguished tbe Liberal deader. Nothing
shows this more than that iu her old age she
has become the active President of the recently
formed Women's Liberal Federation. Like
Mr. Gladstone himself, she seems possessed of
boundless energy, and, like him too, she is in
tensely religious. One other qualification for
tbe post of wife to the Prime Minister she can
boast of: I mean, of absolute discretion. Al
though she has been tbe depositary of manr a
State secret be has never been guilty of a po
litical Indiscretion, and this is all tbe more re
markable as she Is naturally of a chatty and
It is needless to add tbat Mrs. Gladstone is In
tensely proud ot her husband, and she must look
back with amusement to tbe days wben asMlss
Catherine Glyrine, her friends considered she
was making a bad match in giving her band to
tbo unknown younger son of a successful Liv
erpool merchant She watches over his health
with tbe greatest solicitude, personally pre
pares the egg-flips with which the great orator
furtively fortifies himself in the intervals of a
big speech, and has recently given a fresh proof
of her energetic direction by accompanying ilr.
Gladstone on his wonderful Whitsuntide tour
into Cornwall. Tbeir golden wedding, which
the Gladstones will celebrate this summer at
Hawarden Castle, surrounded by all their chil
dren and grandchildren, wUl certainly put the
seal on an exceptionally happy conjugal life.
Lady Aberdeen, when her husbaud was Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland, quite won the Irish
heart by wearing poplin and Irish lace and by
dressing ber children in green. The family
seat is at Haddo House, near Aberdeen, but
the favorite retrcit ot notn ruari ana countess
Is at Dollis Hill, a charming country villa,
some four miles north of London. Here they
pass Saturday to Monday throughout tbe sum
mer, and here the most frequent and favored
guest is Mr. Gladstone. Lady Aberdeen was
the first smart hostess to break through the
social boycott of the Irish representatives
which, nntil recently, has been so strictly ob
served in London.
LADY DUFFEBIX AND OTHERS
A face which has reappeared in London so
ciety this season after many years' absence is
that of Lady Dufferin, who may be seen every
where accompanied by ber two beautiful
daughters, Lady Helen and Lady Hennlone
Blackwood. Perhaps no other woman in Lon
don has had so extensive or so brilliant an ex
perience of official Ufa as Lady Dufferin. She
has not only reigned snpreme as Vice-Queen
both in Canada and Calcutta, but side by side
