' Dr..Arthur J. Wallscheid, for
mer pupil of the Mayo brothers of
Rocheste, Minn., told the mother
there was only one chance in a
thousand that the chilH would live

1 .WEDDING BELLS RING
We note with pleasure that
Mrs. Emilie Emerson, of Balti
more, divorced wife of Capt. Isaac
E. Emerson, announces the mar
riage,, at Reigate, Erig., of. her
daughter, Mrs. S. HoUins Mc
Kim, divorced wife of Dr. S. Hol
lins McKim, to Mr. Alfred
Gwynne Vanderbilt, divorced
husband of Mrs. Ellen French
Vanderbilt. It 'is also cabled
from London that-the bride wore
a gray dress.
There had been much anxiety

fortunes and the court records

quivering social circles to know
that it was not a red, or yellow or
green dress, but just a quiet, lady
like gray.
We are also informed that it
was a' "pleasant wedding." This
is cheering, too, some weddings
are such "riotous, throat-cutting
affairs. Altogether, Era Emer-
son, is to be congratulated on this
match having been pulled off in
such fine" shape.
