JUST GOSSIP ABOUT PEOPLE
Nancy Wynne Spends Week-End in Cape May Most of
the Girls Have Bobbed Their Hair.
Mr. Myers's Hikd
Y DEARS, I went down to Cape
MHy, over the week-end and believe
me that 'sand crab hasn't told me the
half of,, the goings on down there this
season. Will foh believe It when I tell
you there's scarcely a girl down. there
from sixteen to twenty-five whoso hair
is not .bobbed? Honest to goodness,
that's-the tmth. And while they look
very cute ori the bathing beach and In
their gammer organdies n6 the' Red, Mill
dancing something tells me they won't
look so cute In winter and street cos
tumes. It's all. very well for Banning Grange,
for Instance) she's only about sixteen
nnd looks a. peach with her hair bobbed,
but really after nineteen It's better to
put the hair up on the head than to
Wttrlm It like baby "sister's, don't you
Howevfer, It depends on the counte
nance that goes with the "phyBog," and
when I think of that I almost belle my
words, 'for I'll say I've seldom seen
as pretty a bunch of girls as there were
ou the beach at the bathing hour on
Sunday, for instance.
DID you know, by the way, that Mona
Crozor has been very 111 and has
been taken down to stay with some rel
atives In ono of the Carolina? while she
Jlcr father and mother, Mr. nnd Mrs.
Ned Crozcr, took her- down and have
been away nearly twq weeks. They ex
pected to return today, however. Flor
ence stayed In Cape Mny. Mona nnd
Florence ore very, very nttractlvo girls
and will be even prettier when their
debutante, year comes nlong. Mona la
about sixteen now, and Florence Is fif
teen years old.
LET me see if I gleaned any other
bits while I was there. Oh, yes,
I went to the contest dance at the Red
Mill' and It was won by I,ysbeth Boyd
and Charlie Balrd. And they certainly
did win it, too ; they danced beautifully 1
YOU'LIj forgive me If I say that It
was hot-on Sundny, won't you? Hut
what do you think of Mr. Myers taking
the boys off on a hike through historical
Philadelphia that afternoon? 'Well, he
did. Mr. Albert Cook Myers, of the
Historical Society. I told you before,
I think, how he takes the men In the
fcervlce every Sunday nfternoon.
I asked him yesterday where they
hiked to, and he gave mo n most Inter
esting account. They start oft every
Hnnrlnv from the steps of the 1. M. O.
A. and go over to the community war
nmn tnfnrmnHon in City Hall and have
their pictures taken and from there down
they go to Independence Hall and all
through tho buildings there and then to
Commodore Barry's statue. Then he
takes the men to Carpenters Hall,
which is opened specially for him at that
time. From there they go to Christ
Church nnd sit in Washington's pew.
and thence to Betsy Ross's house, and
on to the old Quaker Meeting House, nt
Fourth and Arch streets. There they
sit for about half an hour, as by that
time every man -Jack of them is pretty
tired nnd, as I remarked, there was some
heat this Sunday afternoon. While nt
the meeting house tho sixty-four men
who hiked this week were "initiated
by Mr. Myers in the degree of H. H.
What on earth might that be? ques
tioned this inquisitive person. "Well,
if this way," said Mr. Myers. "When
we start out, they are Husky Heroes.
As we go along visiting the historical
places they bacome Historical Hikers;
as they get to going round to the
churches they become Holy Hikers, and
by the time they've hnd their swim in
the Central 'X' pool they are Hungry
Hounds, while after they have walked
to the Ship and Tent Club nnd arc fed
with all the good eats provided there
for them they become nappy Hounds.
So H. H. seems to cover them all after
noon," After they hnvc their half hour's rest
they go on to 520 Market street, where
Washington lived for several years,
thence to Seventh -nnd Market, where
Jefferson drew npthe declaration, and
. on to the swimming pool. On the way,
Mr. Myers tells them all the historical
points of interest nnd makes the walk
extremely interesting. The men walk in
twos most of the time.
This last Sunday after the swim at
the "TC," they walked over to Twenty
third nnd Christian streets to the Ship
and Tent Club, where Mrs. George B.
Evans was hostess and provided some
wonderful "eats." She bad a number
of young girls helping her, nnd Miss
T.n r.rantham. who often assists in
entertaining the men at the Historical
Society, was also were, xae evening
finished up with a vaudeville entertain
ment. ... TT XT
I wouldn't mind being an H. n. my

If n thing is good it is worth while
waiting for, nnd that is Just what has
happened at this theatre this week.
Other plnccs have seen the beauties
of this Orlentnl play, but local theatre
goers were repnld for their wait
ing when the screen disclosed what is
probably the most beautiful Chinese
photoplay ever shown here. For those
who appreciated some of the stories In
which Scssuo Hayakawn appeared,
there will be added pleasure In the
wonderful characterization of a Chinese
girl by Alia Nnzimova.
Superb is the way to describe her
playing, nnd when it is taken Into

Tragedy is found in the motivation
of the play, and tho sympathies of the
spectators arc aroused when their im

tale unfolds. The conflict of emotions
comes to the daughter of Caucasian and

hood and is called upon to follow her
belief in being n fatalist. She meets
nnd loves a young missionary, who
knows of her parentage. She nlso Is
loved by nn Eurnslan, who Is 11 member I
of the Boxers. The uprising forces her
to lead her lteople, ns the Goddess
the Red Lantern. In fenr for the
safety of the mission she goes there nnd ,
meets her father. The story ends somo-1
