JUST GOSSIP ABOUT PEOPLE "
Nancy Wynne Tells About St. Francis's Home for
Convalescents' Market Day Fair Other
Fetes Discussed and a Tale or Two
NOW that tho Sporting Carnival i nvr
we havo tho Navy Day Fete to look
forward to on, rrtday of this week and
tho Fair for Convalescents out In Darby,
which Is bolnjr gotten up by tho Sonlor
And Junior auxiliaries of tho home.
Miss Florence Sibley Is president this
year, and cortalnly makes an able ont.
Sho Is go used to good works sho could
not pass ono by, It seems to mo, tor sho
has been for jears Interested In tho
I'onnsylvanla Association for Women
Workers, which was started hero somo
yeais ago by Miss Laura Watt, who was
tho first president. Then Miss Sibley
becamo Interested In St. Francis's Homo
ftnd sho added that good work to her
already full calendar, and there Is llttlo
doubt that tho homo will benefit by her
knowledgo and well-guided energy.
Tho Fair, or Market Day. will open on
Friday morning, and last alt of that day
and all of Saturday. Thoro will bo all tho
Usual things for salo, only that every ono
is making a special effort to mako tho
things prcttlor than over, and tho "eats"
better than over, and to mako moro
money than over, and that will be going
some, bellovo me; for these ardent work
ers for tho Homo for Convalescents havo
accumulated quito a bit of money at thoso
annual market days.
THE homo was started about five years
ago by a number of women, prominent
among them having been Mrs. Charles
Emory Smith, a sister of Mrs. James
Francis Sullivan. Mrs. Smith had long
beon visiting tho sick and poor at Block
ley with tho Children of Mary, attached
to tho Convent of tho Sacred Heart, In
this city. Sho saw how of ton tho patients
dismissed from tho hospital wero really
Unablo to take up their work at home,
and that many returned to tho wards
Within a few months after dismissal,
down with tho same Illness again, becauso
they had no tltno nor place to convalesct.
Sho interested Father Wastl, tho chaplain
at Blockley, and sho interested tho other
women who visited with her, and finally
from tho llttlo seed so quietly sown tho
houso at Darby was founded. All of tho
women who had visited tho sick at Block
ley felt tho need of suclv a placo, and lot
mo tell you there aro many women who
havo and do visit that hospital, full of
sick and sorely tried humanity, and thoso
very Chlldien of Mary, headed for forty
years by Miss Julia Randall, have visited
thoro for nearly half a century. They
all know tho need and wero moro than
glad to help. Ono gentleman gavo $500,
another a thousand, tho Sulllvans gao a
horse and wagon; furniture poured In
from all sides and tho idea becamo an
accomplished fact. In tho few years 2100
patients havo been encouraged back to
health and happiness once more.
It was In tho heart of many for many
years and Mrs. Smith but voiced tho de
sires of her associates. Sho did not re
main hero to seo tho success of tho un
dertaking, but a year later entered a
convent in New York, whore sho has
Blnca dovoted her llfo to helping the poor.
fANY glrl3 of tho younger set of West
Philadelphia havo turned their at
tention and thoughts from parties anu
dances to interest themselves in, this com
ing Market Day and Fair. A bunch of
them aro busy making hats and bags,
which will bo a part of their costumes on
thoso two days. Tho hats, aro stunning;
they are fashioned of black tulle and
made with squaro brims and crowns of
ribbon to match each ono's pet particular
Bweater. Tho bags are of black and white
cretonne, with a largo K stenciled on one
side. Now, you might guess that tho K
was destined for Kitchen utensils, or
Kits, or even Klttons, but it isn't; it
stands for tho most ordinary thing In tho
world theso days, and that Is Knitting.
And all of theso aides will bo attached to
the knitting table", which Mrs. Joseph
Isiael has In charge. The table Itself will
be trimmed In black and white, so I think
tho costumes will be qulto fetching. A
gypsy kettle hung on a tripod and used
as a melting pot for old gold and silver
will bo another attraction at this table.
Among tho aides, who will certainly
look very cunning in these smart cos
tumes, will be Ruth Israel, Katharine
Slater, Katharine Burns, Anne, Elisabeth
and Mary Strain, Helen McNlchol, Sophia
and Ida Songer, Sophie Henderson, Caro
line Farren, Agnes Kelley, Agnes Hag
gerty, Rose Froney, Mildred Butcher and
MrTlHEfW small fire companies are all
L right growls Mr. City Person, "but
something always goes wrong Just when
they are needed most." And that, in a
word, is the moral of my little tale.
You tee, a certain nearby suburb, had
always prided itself on its very efllclent
fire service, and every once In a whllo
, you would seo the shining red engine,
with all its paraphernalia, charging down
tho roads, slren-whlstle shrloklng and
small dogs following along and barking
their heads off. Nine times out of ten'
tho engine would only be taking an air
ing, but what of that? It certainly did
Well, one night not long ago a stable
caught Are and immediately the dear,
bright engine chortled with Joy, for at last
It would be pressed into service. But
good night! Here It had been priding
Itself on its brand-new bell rope, and
when the man on duty In the fjrehouss
Went to ring tho bell to summon the rest
of the firemen, in some unaccountable
manner (the engine simply couldn't under
stand it) It refused to ring. At last, how
ever, he sot the men together and they
dashed madly down the street. But when
they reached the burning stabJo tho)
found they would have to go back, two
blocks to attach the flro hose. So back
they went, and can you blame them if
they lost breath and patience before it
was flxod? Then these gallant men
started to drag the hose along the road
(picture the stable all this While burning
nwrrlly on, with flames reaching higher
and Wfar), They tugged and tugged,
wbR suddenly oh, WHY: oh, HOT
t-aMild tt hjin7 FrWmJ How sprm a
through that awful torront they would
have boon absolutely and forever
drenchnd. Needless to say, the unoffend
ing fhemen wero that already.
And alas, when finally the hoso had
been mended and arrived at tho scene of
disaster, tho poor little stnblo had grown
tired of waiting and hod already allowed
itsolt to bo all buined down.
T HEAR a bit moro of tho Midway Car
x nlval's plana now and ngaln and they
seem to bo cry olaborate. Marjory
Tajlor has gathered a goodly numbor of
aides about her und both stile entrances
at tho ends of tho street will bo well
guarded on October 17; for there will bo
Nancy Sinjtho, Emlyu Shipley, Holou
Moore, Martha Henderson, Mary Dcrcum,
Met Jannoy, Mary Law, Margaretta
Jcanos, Eleanor Verner, Mrs. Jacob Diss
ton, Jr., Betsy Davis, Kathryn Cox,,
Nancy Dunning, Mabel Reed, Margaretta'
Myers and Galnor Balrd.
Tho latest plan Is to havo motors to
give tho klddlcrf rides for flvo cents,
besides tho rides In tho pony and donkey
carts and on tho saddled small beastles.
Mrs. Morgan Churchman Is to havo a
booth dqvoted entirely to sporting at ti
des, und Mrs. Charllo Wlstcr will havo
tho llngcilo and embroideries.
T)ID jou seo Ellso Hopkins Yarnall at
XJ tho Sporting Carnival with U.ut nice,
big, brown, good-natured dog? When I
saw her bho was vainly trying to mako
him prick up his cars and look ulivo U
have his "plcturo took," but Samson had
no.lntcrest for anything but disc's hand.
Every time sho snapped her Angers at
arm length, to mako him look Inter-J
ested, ho wagged his tall and smilingly
walked over to got acquainted with tho
fingers. Ho wa3 In such a wondoiful
humor that you couldn't bother him oven
by trying to tako his picture. I heard an
awfully amusing story about the same
dog recently. Ho is an Important part of
tho Hopkins possessions, and Eleanor
Jones had him down South with her this
car. When everybody was on tho porch
Samson was ALWAYS on tho porch, too,
waving his long tall in hugo satisfaction
if thero wero any guests. Ho is no small
pup, as you may havo seen, and his
friendly advances became a bit too fro
quent ono day for ono of Eleanof's
guests. Tho guest was a large oung
man with a concspondlngly largo bass
voice, und as Samson camo grinning ovor
to start tho fourth or fifth conversation
tho largo young man suddenly diopped
to his hands and knees on tho floor of the
porch and barked straight into tho faco of
his astounded vis a-vls. Samson backed and
tho joung man baikod. Tho process con
tinued until Samson, baffled and cm
barrasse'd, was barked completely off thu
porch. Thereafter all that tho guest, who
was a frequerit ono, had to do to get rid
of tho dog was to lean over and bark at
him and ho would immediately retire In
undignified haste. NANCY WYNNE.

This rcctlon In tho Thirty-eighth Ward

large number of young men of this section
