Gotham Is agog with theories as to why
the wedding was postponed. There are as
many reasons as there are tongues to voice
them, each of which-ls believed, more or
less, except the one officially given. So
ciety shrugs its shoulders at the rheumatic
rcs.i; and reads the Doctor's bulletin -with

llovrever, the affair Is a tremendous
verification or the maxim that poiton Tor
one is rnmit for another, for the flowers
that adorned tbe Wilson house weredouated
by (be bride-elect to the city hospitals
to delight the sufferers who are not only
HI but poor.
It was a kindly act, to forget her own
trouble long enough to think oftbe troubles
of others, bat society can't find time at
itus immeiuate moment to credit Miss
Wilson for anything, except, of course,
It Is said now that young Vanderbllt is
"doing very well." He is subject to
rheumatism; that was one reason his rather,
who dearly loves blm, opposed his mar
riage. The dampness of the climate at
Newport induced the first attack of the
disease in Its inflammatory form last
September. The Vanderbllt family were
then at the "Breakers," their spleDdH
honse at Newport.
So solicitous was Cornelius Tanderbilt
for bis son, o intense was his anxiety,
that a couch wasplacedintbeyoungman's
room, and there the father slept nntil the
object of his care was on the way to re
covery. Death had taken Cornelius Tan
dertiilt's eldest son, William H. He would
not lose another.
Another story is that Cornelius Vandei
titlt and R. T. Wilson, the parties, met
Wednesday; that Cornelius Tanderbilt
soiemuly assured K. T. Wilson that tbe
moment his son married he would cnt him
off; that he would not give him one single
rjennv: thnf. therefore. CrtmAlinm Vniulan.
I bilt. Jr., would be practically a beggar.
Then came the acute attack ot rheuma
tism. St. Patrick's Church was brilliantly Illu
minated and artistically decorated last
evening In honor of the marriage of Miss
Elinore Blandfcrd and Br. Charles Kneller
Promptly at 8 o'clock a procession ot
acolytes entered the sanctuary, followed
by Dr. Stafford, tbe celebrant; Rev. Father
Gloyd, paster of 8t Patrick's, and Bev.
Mr. John .Porter Lawrence, the organist
of the occasion, changed his theme to the
march from "Lohengrin," and the wedding
party entered tbe church.
It was beaded by tbe six ushers, who
were Br. Marbory, Mr. Stepben B. Carain,
Mr. George Uaslan, Mr. William B. Bland
ford, Mr. Joseph Casain and Mr. P. J. Kel
eber. Preceding the bride came the maid of
honor. Miss Blandme'B. BlJndford, a sister
of the bnde. She was charmingly gowned

Tbe bride, who entered the church leaning
upon the arm of bet'father, Mr. Bweet T.
Blandford, is a graceful blonde of modest,
winning manner. She was most becomingly
gowned in white taffeta, en train, with soft
frills ot 'white chiffon, forming Vandyke
points upon the sleeves and shoulders. Tbe
bigb neck was finished with a stock collar
of shirred chiffon, on which butterfly bows
of tbe chiffon were daintily placed, and a
shower bouquet of white sweet peas andV
green orchids added to the pure effect of a
gown exquisite in its shimmering whiteness.

where she was given away by ber father.
After the services Dr. and Mrs. Koones

ot many elegant gifts that included enough

to equip' the daintiest of homes.
