OW that the, debutantes have
been introduced social attention
will again be monopolized by
the brides. There will be several in
teresting weddings the last of the
month and in January. The marriage
of Miss Marjorie Northup and Sidney
Dean of St. Paul will take place, as you
know, Thursday, Dec. 28, in the Church
of the- Redeemer. Mrs. Northup and
heir daughter' have been in' New York
for several weeks but they will return
shortly. Mr. and Mrs. Northup have
taken the Phelps house, on Park avenue,
as Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Phelps and their
It daughter will go to California next
wek, and so the wedding will take
place in the city and not at the Northup
countiy place at MinWetonka.
Miss Edith Knight has chosen
"Wednesday, Jan. 3, as the date for her
marriage to George K. Belden. The
,wedding of Miss Katherine "Wheaton
and Phillip B. Winston will not take
place until the last of January and
Miss Mary B. Beldeli' and Bichard
Greene Fisher will also be married late
The greatest surprise of the week was
'the marriage of Mrs. Ann C. Semple and
Alonzo T. Rand. Of course everybody
knew of the engagement of Mrs. Semple
and Mr. Rand, for the announcement
hd beeto made at a dinner at the Mini
kahda club last fall and it was generally
known that the wedding would take
place in January. Mrs. Semple and
Mr. Rand kept their own counsel and
not even their intimate friends knew
that they had chan'ged their plans until
they heard that the wedding had taken
place. Mr. and Mrs. Rand will return
from their wedding trip this week and
will be at home at Mrs. Rand's beauti
iful residence on West Franklin avenue.
It will be quite interesting to know
that one of the pretty debutantes just
after having had a taste of the pleas
ures and delights of a bud, will become
bride and probably before summer.
_he formal announcement has not been
made as yet, but her parents will tell
their friends just as soon as the man of
her choice, and it is whispered that his
Viome is in the sunny south, arrives in
Minneapolis. Already numerous little
parties and entertainments have been
planned by the few who are in the
feecret and the debutante will have
things all her own way up to the day of
How much money do you think was
made by the charity ball? The women
who had charge of it cleared $3,500 for
ihe Home for Children and Aged
women. Isn't that splendid! Every
body is still talking of the charming
appointments and arrangements for the
iball and the committees have been con*
gratulated again and again on its suc
cess. "And the best of it is that our
expenses were no more, really not quite
so much, as before," exclaimed one de
lighted member at the meeting at the
home of Mrs. M. B. Koons Friday morn
"We made a lot more than we did
last year, ami the ball was so much
more brilliant and successful."
Have you heard any whispers about
the vandalism at the big receptions
this fall? At least people speak of it
as' vandalism, altho pilfering would be
a term more easily understood. I is
lass hotels and restaurants that
some of the women to go delib
erately up to the baskets and vases of
flowers, pull out a few and walk away
smiling. One of the debutantes com
plained bitterly that several of her
prettiest bouquets disappeared in this
fashion. Can you imagine why a guest
would want to carry away any of the
decorations with her without permis
And, by the way, what did the debu
tantes do with all the flowers that
were sent to them? Seventy-five or a
hundred bouquets would be more than
any girl could enjoy at once and more
than even an extraordinary house could
find room for. So after the debutante
receptions were over and the flowers
had greeted^ the pretty bud and been
enjoyed by everybody at the reception
they were sent to the hospitals to carry
a message from the girl who found time
even in the excitement of making her
formal entrance into society to think of
iffchose who were not so fortunate as her
self. The family and friends who were
in trouble or sorrow were remembered
,rttith flowers that had graced the clebu
itante's first formal appearance, and so
many people who were unable to be
present had a share in the pretty func

fl meats of the week was of the engage
ment of Miss Elizabeth Sherley of
Louisville, Ky., and Thomas L. Shev-
lin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H.
Shevlin of Oak Grove street. Miss
Sherley visited the Shevlins at Lake
Minnetonka last summer and met many
of the young people at the different
affairs which were given in her, honor.
3s Mr. Shevlin is still at Yale, where he is
captain of the football team, and the
wedding will take place shortly after
his graduation in June.
One of the New York papers has this
to say of Miss Sherley, who is the
daughter of Mrs. Brannen Sherley:
"Miss Sherley, while only 17 years
old, is known in Louisville, Ky., her
'home, as one of its prettiest girls. For
the past four years, since the death of
her father, in 1901, Miss* Sherley, to
gether with her mother, has spent most
her time in Paris, where she has
[Studied music and languages, so that
she is both an accomplished musician
Miss Sherley at one time contem
plated going on the stage, but her
mother vetoed the proposal... At the
time of Prince Louis of Battenberjg's
visit to Governor's Island, he said that
he would like an introduction to Miss
rSherley. This was granted, and, as tho
prince left the island, he said, turning
to one of his associates, that he'thought.
Miss Sherley one of the prettiest wom
en he had seen since reaching this
country. Since then she has been
known to the soldiers on the island as
'Prince Louis' beauty.'
