Handsomely Dressed Creations Sent

Wonderful CompoMlte Little One Com

The American Poll and Toy Show at the
Academy ot Music in Baltimore is ntuact
liiK a great deal of attention la this city,
ax a number of our most prominent women
are interesting tlwoisclye in It and lune
bent aolls or doll baby clothes.
Mrs. Oloey, wire of the Secretary of
State, lms sent in the name ot her grund
bou, Frank lllnot, a doll which has ex
tiled the envy ot half the little girls in
Baltimore. It is a mechanical doll and
u heu taken In the arms and pressed throws
Mrs. Lamont eent a large doll, which was
dressed entirely by iier ihree daughters.
Miss Morton, sister of the Secretary of
Agriculture, also has a doll on exhibition,
tlad in snowy while.
On the same table Mrs. John G.Carlislc has
two dolls, dressed like twins, one in pink
and one in blue.
rerhaps what will be the most wonderful
doll at the show is now on Its way rroni
Cloelund, O., sent by- Robert r. rorter
the former superintendent of census, tt Is a
pure blonde, three reet high, with a 16-inch
waist and 15-Inch arm. She will be dressed
as the chocolateirirl, after Jean Etlenne Lie
bird's "La Belle Chocolatlcrc."
The chocolate set which she will tarry
is presented by Mrs. Bellamy Storcr. It Is
or Itockwood ware and conies direct from
Mrs. 8torer'8 pottery in Ohio. The doll's
dress is made by Mrs. Lucretta Garfield.
Mrs. William UcKlnlry furnished its Rhocs
and stockings.. Mrs. Joseph Benson FurAkcr
its white p ttleoat, and Mrs. Fanny Hayes
lis flannel petticoat- Mrs. John Sherman,
Mrs. Asa W. Bushnell and Mrs, James S.
Hoyt are other distinguished women who
have helped to dress this nmarkablejoung
Now that the season is about to begin,
it will lie Interesting to know something
abbat the hostesses who will entertain
largely and on whose inclinations It de
pends whether it wiQ be gay or otherwise
Washington Is particularly fortunate
In having a number of women who have
not only wealth and ilevcrncss, bat are
also prominent oTfiilallj.
Mrs. John B. Mi Lean entertains largely
and In mot delightful manner. 8bc will
be one of the hostesses at the dinner dances
wnu-h were so popular here and In New
York last winter.
The Morgan house, whk-b Mr. McLean
purchased some jears ago. Is efpeclally
adapted for entertainment. It has been
occupied ever since it was first built by
people prominent In society, with the excep
tion ot a short time when it was used as a
boardlng-hiMisc. The charm of Mrs- Mc
Lean's functions Is that there Is alwajs a
stamp ot originality about them and thev
chow care and attention. Mrs. McLean and
Miss SaikvIHe 'West were Instrumental in
organizing the dancing class, which was
so popular sonic years ago, but which now
has fallen into Innocuous desuetude.
The teas and charitable affairs given by
Mrs. McLean on the large square of ground
which her husband owns on Seventeenth
and TJI streets, and where he had a house
put up in "a single night," as a surprise
to liis wife, are also unique. The little
folks, too. come in for a share of her hos
pitality, and the fancy dress balls which she
gives every un minus in nonoror ner young
son. .T. It. McLean. r.. .ire looked forward
to for weeks by the friends of the young
Mrs- Aniebe uhcs-Clianler when first m
WanMnpton said the woman she most ad
mired and wanted to uwot here was Mrs.
John R. McLean. Mr. and Mrs. McLean a re
at present in New York. on a visit, butwdl
return to the city before the new year.
There lias been a decided change in the
decorations of tallies for teas and recep
tions tills year. Where It used to be Hie
custom to have one color prevail now we
have every color ot the rainbow. The pink
and the violet teas lia ve gore entirely out of
fashion. One or the prettiest table? I have
seen, this year was at a reception the other
Down each side of the table nnd across
the end were strips of ribbon about three.
Inches wide of maue. pink and yellow. In
the center ot the table was a huge bowl of
ronei or all hues and dishes of candies of all
colors were placed here and there.
The affect, although a little startling at
first, was quite pleasing, and a relief from
the monotonous one-toned tables. This
mode of decorating Is liable to become very
popular here this winter, and those who
have been on the'othnrsldcsay Paris basset
its seal of approval on It.
The pretty yonng bnde was gowned in
white silk trimmed with lace nnd chiffon
and carried white chrysnntheniums tied
with satin bows.
Among the gifts were n decorated dinner
and tea service, presented !v the ld

Sarah Bernhardt has represented ou the

with which she was favored the other day
by Queen Christina, of Spain. No one
need reel astonished to bear that the. great
actress felt dec-ply impressed as shepaed

palace at Madrid which has been the sccuu
of so much historical drama, and particu
larly tragedy, in. tbe past.
This ls the lirst occasion that I can recall
of a re,gnlng queen according the honor of
a private audience to an actress, atd this
honor is enhanced by the fact that Queen
ChrisUna is very exclusive, since a few
years ago she declined to admit to her
presence a popular English duchess, a
circumstance which gave rise to a gi od
deal of gossip and comment at the time.
Queen ChrisUna received "Dona Sol"
with the most winning kindness, caused
her to sit by her side on the sofa and kept
her talklrur for over an tour before she al
lowed her tu deparf, which she did not do.

Few of tbe Germans in this country who
have laughed to their hearts' content at
those many popular farces, which are con

Like so many German princes, he looked
for beauty and charm, ralher Uian for
rank, in seeking a wife. and. instead ot
marrying a princess, contracted a mor

Yogel von Frlesenhoff, who had been a
peasant girl, but upon whom the Emperor
ot Austria conferred a barony at the
time of her marriage, her children by the
duke bearing their mother's name jnd title.
For the lost twenty days he bad resided
at his lovely country place and chateau,

public. A son of the queen's half-brother,
he entered the English navy at an early
age. and was promoted with unusual ra

He was iu command ot the Ill-fated British
Ironclad Victoria when she foundered off
the Syrian coast a couple of years ago.
carrying almost her entire crew of 600
men to the bottom ot tbe sea. He was in
command of the Sultan another iron
clad, when she foundered near Malta. He
ran another ship wlilth be commanded on
a reef somewhere iu the West Indies, and
has at least three other similar disasters,
though of minor Importance, to his credit.
Indeed, he has sJch a reputation for ill
luck that neither officers nor men .lite to
go t.isea with him.
ret notwithstanding these misfortunes,
which would have long since clrhcn any
less Influential man out or the service, he
remains high in favor alike In society and
at court, and retains his post of equerry to
the queen's second son, the Dui.e of Co

the distinction of being the youngest ad
