of Xew York society. Chambers seemed quite taken with the club. Looked
at the cartoons, to make apparently intelligent comments, and regarded
with interest the group at the bar. But was introduced to none, though one
or two are very like his heroes and might have got points on the 1913 model.
That evening they discussed the visit of the author, and some one
thought they ought to give him a dinner. Some one else undertook to find
out where he was stopping. Returned from the telephone crestfallen.
Chambers wasn't in town. Never had been. The man who looked like
him was a visiting architect. Fine chap. Better give him the dinner. Who
started the story, anyway? Personally, he hadn't seen the architect, but
he bet he'd know him from Robert Chambers. He bet it was some fool joke.
fs:\t the man who discovered the author declared it was not. He'd been
Not like the man who said Major Hampton was and
fooled a lot of his friends, to his mean delight. Doctor Taylor hadn't for
given that, though Major Hampton did his best to be scholarly and British
in their conversation.
The visit of Mr. Wilcox was remembered. Tt was at the old club, a
number of years ago. One of the Round Table knights was forever intro
ducing some stranger as a celebrity. An ordinary New York man was
brought in with a flourish as the duke of Northumberland, or some middle
•western guest was called my friend, William Dean Howells, and so on.
Downey Harvey does- that sort of thing. You get tired of it.
One day the man came in with a stranger and presented "Mr. Wilcox."
the husband of Ella Wheeler Wilcox, the poetess of passion, he explained.
Nobody fell for it. "Just as you say." they replied, and proceeded to call
the man Mr. Ella Wheeler Wilcox and discussed the impassioned poems of
Mrs. Ella with reprehensible irreverence. The man who introduced Mr.
Wilcox insisted, and no one paid the slightest attention to him. He'd fooled
them once too often. But the joke of it was, Mr. Wilcox was really the
husband of Ella Wheeler Wilcox all the while, and very dismayed at his
reception, as those who were present recall.

Just how far the splendor of the ball
will go Is still a~ matter of conjecture.
Mrs. Breeden declines to discuss any
of her plans on the plea that it is too
early to have formulated them. Dame
Grundy, on the contrary, is persistent
with the rumor that the affair will be
unique in the history of local society,
but unique from the viewpoint of the
unusual ratheY than of the beautiful.
Certain it is that the costumes will
be different fro many before seen at a
private social gathering. Beauty will
give place to originality, grace to
grotesqueness and elaboration to sim
plicity. The pierrot and pierrette cos
tume admits of but one general form.
It is a loose fitting garment, compris
ing coat and baggy trousers in one.
Some times the gown is made half of
one color and half of another, and the
trimming varies from black and white
spots to large black buttons or any
other form of decoration that the orig
inal designer can suggest. An elflike
cap, which conceals the hair, will com
plete the costume.
While the costuming will necessarily
offer a smaller field for design than for
mer fancy dress balls the members of
society will vie with one another in
choosing rich and odd materials for
their gowns and in varying the style
of trimming. That the ballroom will
present a pretty scene of carnival the
evening of January 3. no one doubts.
To add to the merriment of the oc
casion the dancers will be masked, and
as the costumes are alike for men and
women the opportunity for fun making
will be increased fourfold.
The ball will be given in the Burlin
game Country club, and the spacious
grounds of the fashionable clubhouse
will be thrown open for the use of the
guests. The decorative scheme will

acter of the entertainment, though

The Left Behind Lady
One beautiful holiday morning early
in the fall—the wonderful kind of day
that sounds the call of the road to the
dullest ears and sets the want to go
eomewhere fever burning in the most
sluggish veins—l happened to drop in
on one of my neighbors at about 9
o'clock in the morning to ask for the
loan of some small article.
My neighbor said she would be more
tljan pleased to lend me the article if
I would just make myself at home and
wait for a few minutes until she got
the children oft for the d»y and then
she would hunt up what I wanted.«
My neighbor has in her housenold
five eons and daughters and one daugh
ter in law. Their ages range from 16
to 30. They were all going off on
some pleasure excursion for the day. so
perhaps you can Imagine the excite
ment that reigned there for the next
David, the youngest, was off to a
neighboring town to play in a ball
game and had to have his mother's as
sistance in finding hie mask at the last
The 18 year old daughter was bound
on an all day canoe trip and her mother
had to help her with the lunch.
The twins had 'been invited on an
auto ride and were asking frantically
were their automobile veils were.
The oldest son and the new daughter
had hired a for a drive into
the country aod mother must come to
the front door and see what a fine rig
The excitement finally subsided when
the twins, who were the la*t to ,go,
whirled away in a big touring car. and
after waving them off their mother
came back from the front door and
sank rather wearily into the easy chair.
"Now what are you going to do this
lovely day?" I asked.
I think the whirl must have tired my
friend more than usual, for she is al
ways a very cheerful person, but this
time her optimism seemed to have
failed her. "Me?" she said very wist
fully and just a little bitterly. "Oh, I'm
not going to do anything: I just see
folks off; I'm the left behind lady."
Now those five sons and daughters
are not unusually selfish children—they
are just thoughtless. It has probably
never occurred to them that mothers
like to go places on holidays just as
much as other folks. L.tke thousands
of other sons and daughters they prob
ably think the older generation stays
at home so much because it prefers
peace and quiet. They are always on
the go themselves, so they have never
experienced that let down, empty, deso
late feeling that comes when, after
seeing other folks off, you go back into
a quiet house.
If young folks would only cease to
look at the older people as a separate
species and would only come to realize
that after all they have much the same
longings for fun and happiness and at
tention as themselves, and that some
times they like to be seen off Instead of
always doing the seeing off, I am sure
the sons and daughters would make a
greater effort to include the older peo
ple in their good times.

American Women Ridicule Sug

CHICAGO, Dec. 9.—Women suffrage
leaders of Chicago ridicule the recom-

Catt, noted English suffrage leader,
who believes that the Chinese woman's
trouser dress garb would be proper and
Ideal for the American suffragist.
"A standard dress for women," said
Miss Jane Addams at Hullhouse, "would
be a good thing, but I am afraid Mrs.
Catfs plan Is very impractical. At
present women are at the mercy of
style creators, but it is hard to say
what can be done."
Mrs. Thomas R. Rhodus was amazed
at the idea.
"We need dress reform," she ad
mitted, "and we ought to discard the
corset, but I do not favor Mrs. Catfs
innovation. In the first place I don't

A BALD-HEADED WOMAN
Shunt of Her Crown of Beauty, Loses
la Love and Marriage
Hair is certainly most necessary to
woman. Who could love and marry a
bald-headed woman? What charms
could one array to offset such a dis
A woman's goal Is usually love and
marriage. Her crowning glory is her
hair. The loss of her hair mars her
beauty, happiness, and success. Yet,
right here in San Francisco, there are
thousands of women who are neglect
ing or injuring their hair to such an
extent that it is only a matter of time
when it will be utterly ruined.
Many women destroy the beauty of
their hair through thoughtlessness or
ignorance of certain facts. They use
curling irons over-heated, or to excess,
which destroys the natural oil <of the
hair, causing It to split, break, and
come out. They do not shampoo their
hair often enough, or too often. They
use soaps or preparations which con
tain ingredients positively harmful to
the scalp and hair.
As a result of such treatment, dan
druff is created, their hair loosens,
loses color, falls o\o and baldness
commences, unless proper and prompt
precautions are taken in time. Then
again, microbes and certain diseases
bring about unhealthy scalp and hair
Almost any woman may rid herself
of dandruff and diseased scalp and hair
if she will but use the right remedy.
We have that remedy, and we will
positively guarantee that it will either
