Ever since her debut Miss Gilbert
has been, anidealjst. A year ago, to
some friends, she laughingly con
fided her. conception of an ideal man,
whom she announced she would
marry some day.
"He must 'be six. feet tall and fond
of .athletics. He- must be. smopthr
shaven, a brunette and a good' rider.
He must be 'fond of animals; have
a .firm jaw, be an Episcopalian, a Re
publican and a money-maker," she
"Hp must have thick,- curly hair
over his, left, ear, wjth; no red in it; a
straight nose, large and intelligent,
but not stoulful eyes, and the must
have , decided ideas about RAISING
PGS and POULTRY.
"He must 'like lemon; ir) his tea,
eto ice. cream .with a fork-and must
wearhis, clothes, like John Drew."
That was the ideal she described
a year ago. Yesterday Miss Gilbert
walked happily up to the chancel rail
with her ideal; a man who is almost
wholly different from the one she de
scribed. He is fond of outdoor sports, horses
and motoring, but otherwise ft is de
clared he does not meet'with one of
the rules set down by his fiancee af
