New York. Romance, tragedy and
then more romance have filled the
life recently of Miss Mildred Colh
ton, war bride, war widow and now
war bride again.
Miss Colliton, heiress of Wilhman
Uc, Conn., married by proxy Lieut
Leslie Montagu Cowan of the Oxford
shire Light Infantry, after he was as
signed to duty m India and was made
widow when later Cowan fell in
the French trenches. Iow Miss ("JoIU
ton is going lo take another saldier
husband. He is m command of the
alien detention camp in Jamaica, and
he is no other than the man who did
the honors in the proxy marriage for
his fnend, Lieut Cowan. Miss Colli

veritable "wings" this season. Wing
draperies, sometimes called "sail"
draperies, appear in the newest skirt
models. The "wings" or "sails" are
not wired and they fall gracefully in
place at the hips until a slight breeze
wafts them into motion, when you
get the impression that somebody's
going a-sailing or a-fiying.
A CASE OF FREEZE OUT
Six Eskimo and the explorer had
heen playing poker all night six
months. The explorer yawned.
"The game's not worth the can
dle," he exclaimed and, feeling the
need of a snack, aB they say in that
dear Lunnon, he ate the aforemen
tioned candle, causing gloom among
the players. In fact, they were com
pletely in the dark as to his motives.
