winter, but the death of the Czar threw
the legation Into mourning.
Mr. Botkin, the first secretary of the

and the ardent lover did not mind so much
waiting half an hour, but w hen the little

began to be a bit impatient.
A full hour had passed before the sweet

room. "I'm to sorry," she said, "I know
you must be cross, but dear papa has been
so very ill" and the mouth of the greatest
woman on earth took on a pathetic droop

Mrs. Pedigree went to a dinner in New
port last week given to the foreign bride ot
one ot the plutocrats. She Is a dear, charm

the seas, and has two ambitions to speak

leaned across the table and said archly:
"Cousin George, why is It you such n bore

and the husband explained to her the differ

remark to Cousin George.
A young woman fresh from a visit to
California, who sat on the top steps, said
at the next pause in conversation. "I have
seen Lady Sholto Douglass." "No? Tell
us about her," cried everybody at once.
"Well, she sang at a great theater where
they charge no admission fee, but where you
are expected to pay for your entertainment
by ordering drinks. Of course, Mrs. Gold
Mine would not hear of my going, but I
was determined to see the woman who may
one day be the Marchloucss of Queens

Fancy our chagrin when we found that Lady

But we waited, and drank countless sweet

there was a grandUrnnsrormation scene.
"Somehow, the red, satin gown slipped

Poor Luck, and Now She Ilaa
Gold to Spnre.
New Tork, Bcpt. 10. The World's Gua
temalan correspondent telegraphs that
Friday night in that Central American capi
tal there was a weddirg so splendid every
one is talking about it. The bride was an
American actress, Charlotte Neilson, and
the bridegroom, J. H. Nclll, many times a
millionaire. He gave his bride a $EO,000
pearl necklace as a wedding gift, besides
settling an independent fortune uixm her.
Less than three months ago Charlotte
Neilson was living obscurely in New Tork
city, looking for a position on the stage.
She went on the stage three seasons ago,
getting a place In "The Crust of Society"
company, rather becaute of her beauty and
her graceful manners than because of any
ability as an actress. Two sensors ago she
was playing in a stock company In Louis
ville. Thcro the met T. D. Frawley, the
theatrical manager, in a purely casual way.
But she was so pretty and had so much
personal magnetism that Frawley remem
bered her. It was this chance that made
One day lost spring she read in one of
the dramatic papers that Manager Trawley,
who had a stock company In San Francisco,
wanted a young woman to play small
society parts. As a desperate last chance
she telegraphed offering to come if he would
send her the money.
If Frawley had not remembered her name
he would hati never taken this chance.
But, reinembi ring the name, he telegraphed
the necessary money. Miss Neilson, not
a little astonished at the change of luck,
packed a few belongings and set out and In
due lime arrived. She went strlaght to
Frawley, and tbenher troubles began again.
The main point was that Miss Neilson,
In order to play the various society parts
properly, must have many gowns. Now,
she had practically no gown3 at all.
"I cannot afford to pay for costumes,"
said Frawley. "It seems to me I have
done enough for you."
So they could not agree, and Miss Nell
son, sick at beart over the scurvy trick
fortune bad played her, telegraphed to all
her friends In New York and managed to
Just raise the money for the return trip.
Near her In the sleeping car sat a man
whose skin had been tanned almost black
by Central American suns. But It seems
that the same fire had also melted his heart,
ne watched the young woman with the
pretty, sad face, and finally offered ber
some respectful attention.
He was J. II. Nelll, and until ten years
ago he spent all his time in getting used
to the frowns and curses of fortune. So
when Miss Neilson told him her story be
understood perfectly. The first day he
was admiring, sympathetic. Interested.
The second day he was in love. The third
day he was so far gone that he tol3 lher
about it nnd asked her to marry him. She,
too, had been touched, for kindness of the
sort he showed her had not been very usual
In bcr life.
And so the whole car these tlirough
passengers across the continent get well
acquainted was delighted to see the
happy outcome of the flirtation that had
."leu progressing with such hot haste.
And then it came out that Miss Neilson
had fallen Into a fortune. For Nelll had
spent tho last ten years In Guatemala, and
fortune, weary of sporting with such a pa
tient man, had smiled from his first landing
In Central America. Mines anil plantations
had come Into his hands, and he was rich
and would be richer. They went straight
to Guatemala that is, as soon as Mr. Nelll
had ransacked the big New York shops for
gowns. Jewels, furniture everything to
make Miss Neilson comfortable and happy.
They went by way of San Francisco, and
Frawley and the stock company were daz
zled and overwhelmed as Miss Neilson, smil
ing, trulmphant, gorgeous, passed through.
The days and months of heart sickness over
money matters, of tramping New York's
cruel streets, of waiting patiently and
fruitlessly in theatrical agencies, were
gone forever. All that had faded like a
dream. Tho poor little actress is the
A few such days as yesterday will com

There Is something ery pretty and effec
tive In the dainty combinations of lace and
ribbon and sheer materials, but the sum
mer girl herself is apt to betray the dis
comfort of over heated days. Laces suc
cumb to the dampening influences, and
no amount of persuasion will keep the
rebellious locks in the conventional curl.
This fact is often a bar to tho summer,
girl's enjoyment of the passing, hour.
With the cooler days the refractory locks
assume a crispness. and the Jaunty tailor
made girl feels more confidence in herself
and in her appearance as she lakes her con
stitutional. Then, too, her face doesn't
assume such a deep Vermillion hue, and al
