    THE CITfBEN, FIUDAY, MAY 3, 11)11. ,
The Dryans' Younger Daughter
Expected to Be a June Bride.
' ft
neon n matter of moro public interesi
had her father bceu president. Every
ne felt sorry for her, and particularly
for her parents, when the marriage
:urncd out so unhappily. Certainly the
pounger daughter will have- the best
n'tshes of the American people In her
lew life.
Although so prominent, the Brynns
lave always insisted on keeping the
particulars of their private life from
:ho public. That their daughters are
jood looking, healthy and wholesome
morlcnn girls Is obvious. They arc
ivcll educated without being represent
ttlves of the modern higher education
lor women. Miss Grace attended a
ichool for girls In Virginia and after
ward studied In Germany. She'Is roml
)f dogs nnd horses, a lover of the out
loor life and In most respects a thor
nighly typical American girl. She Is
:hu last of the three Bryan children
:o marry, her brother, William J., Jr.,
aavlng married Miss Helen Uerger,
laughter of a wealthy Milwaukee busl
less man, about two years ago.
On their recent return from Europe
:ho Bryans brought many handsome
:hings for their daughter's trousseau.
When June comes around with its
roses there will be another wedding In
the family of the great commoner, and
Lincoln. Neb.. Is delighted, since It
means the keeping of tho younger of
the popular Bryan girls with them.
Tcrhaps tho Bryans are delighted, too,
for Miss Grace, the youngest child, Is
to marry no stranger, but a young man
who has always been known to them
and whose parents have long been
their friends. Richard Lewis Har
Breaves is the prospective bridegroom.
The young man Is only a few years
elder than tho bride to be. who Is
bout nineteen.
Presumably the wedding will take
place at Falrvlew, the family home on
the outskirts of Lincoln, or else In one
f the local churches. Miss Grace Bry
an resembles her mother In appearance
and has the same charm of face and
Banner. That she Is clever goes with
out saying, for the children of such
parents could be nothing else. Her
special talent Is music, as that of her
elder sister Is literature.
Tho Bryan girls have always been
great favorites with the American peo
ple. Like their mother, they are slm
pie and democratic and put on no un
due airs, although their father's great
position in the world would excuse
them for so doing. When Miss Ruth
Bryan was married to W. H. Leavltt in
1003 tho marrlago could scarcely have
j xvevcr plant shrubs or flowers or Any
, Ihlng else In the center of the lawn
It dwarfs the place and spoils nil nrtls
J dc effect.
I Where the house foundation meets
, the lawn Is n harsh line. Plant shrubs
iround the bouse close to the founda
I lion to bide it. The view under the
! front porch is not pleasing, so plant
lomethlng to hide that The weekly
wnsb and other things occasionally
i icon In tho back yard nre not beauti
ful, so plant a screen of tall shrubs
from the back .of the house to the
ttnee on either side. Tho division
fences nre not handsome, so shrubs
amy be planted to hide them, at least
partly. Square corners are not pleas
jig, so plant shrubs In the corners to
round them off.
If there is anything unsightly about
which can be hidden by plantations of
ibrubbery plant It out. Use shrubbery
for all these purposes, because, while
Bower plants arc dead seven months
In the year, shrubbery partly conceals
' and has pleaslug forms even In winter.
Do not make a circle in the lawn
I around every shrub you plant Plant
the shrubs In borders and plant them
fairly thick, since If you get them too
j far apart they will suffer from drought
and winter winds.
The Polite Chesterfield.
A nobleman of questionable veracity
told Lord Chesterlleld one day that he
had drunk six bottles of champagne.
"That Is more than I can swallow,"
remarked his lordship.
Chicago Girls and Boys With Rakoa
and Brooma Make Dirt Fly.
An tinny of forty Chicago "regu
lars," armed with rakes, hoes and
sticks with sharp points, are waging
n liurco warfare on dirty, blowing pa
pers and rubbish that may be lying
around on vacant lots. And maybe
you will find n crowd of "rookies"
who have hopes f some day belong
ing to tho "regulars."
Tlio "regulars" nre the bona tide
members of the Junior Civic league
and nri all pupils in the eighth grade
of the Park Manor school. They arc
the only ones eligible to the organiza
tion. Tho undergnulcs can only come
In as "recruits" or "volunteers."
Every Friday the members of the
league go Into executive session. A
plan of the day's campaign is then
outlined. The general draws his
maps, nnd the lieutenants are assigned
their duties. Tho army, girls and all,
then marches down to the school
nrsenal In the basement, where the
artillery of rakes anil brooms and lines
Is stored. There Is a final command,
and tho battle begins.
The league has been organized for
two years nnd Is declared to be one of
tho most effective organizations of Its
kind In tho state. In fact, there Is
not known to 1mj any similar organiza
tion in the country.

"Noses Which Suffer."
The latest organization for public Im
provement in France bears tho name
of "L' Association des Ncz Qui Souf
frent," or "The Association of Noses
Which Suffer." Its object Is unceas
ing warfare against unpleasant odors,
and In this category are placed not
only gasoline fumes and such nui
sances, but also musk and other pene
trating perfumes.
The name of the society will strike
tho outside world as a most valuable
asset. It Is much more appealing than
the blunt businesslike appellations of
most of our reform organizations. It
is a recognition of the power of Im
agery even In the everyday affairs of
life. We might well adopt the label,
"Les Nez Qui feouffrent" lu some of our
own reforms.

many of them have not heretofore en

with each other for years.
A Big Drawback.
A man was praising the Improve

"Your house looks a lot better now
that It has been painted."
"Well." tho man who had been re

Bonnets are far more becoming to
young girls than older women, for
whom, presumably, they aro Intended,
and some of the quaint bonnet effects
of this season make charming frames
for girlish faces. On young girls these
captivating bonnets are babyish and
picturesque, and the fresh, pretty face
b all the more lovely because of the
quaint bonnet that surrounds It.

It has been computed that if the

were spread out on the ground edge

Experience Teaches.
"I wonder what has happened to Mr.
Green?" said Mrs. Brown to a lady
friend. "He seems so dismal now, and
he used to be a practical Joker!"
"Ah," was tlie response, "he pro

She accepted him, nnd he says he will
never Indulge In n Joke ngain."
