Washington Soeiety Interested'
This marriage is one in which the peoplj
of Washington have taken a deep interest.
Ever since her debut here several years
ago she has b-n known s one of the
handsomest of the fair daughters of the
national capital, and to the graces of a
lovely person were added unusual acc m
plishments and an amiability that made
her one of the most popular of Washing
ton belle. Miss Mitc-bell'sdevotion to her
mother was a striking characteristic, and
her reward comes in the successful con-s-.iTiimation
of a courtship that extended
ovtr several years, and was atteuded with
much more than the ordinary, amount of
that p. o-ition which doubtless gave rise
tithe old adage that "Tine love neer
Didn't Kun Smooth at First.
When the young folks first togun to be-,
tray an interest in each other further in
timary was discouraged by the young
la ly's paients, Sena'or and Alr. Mitchell,
who preferred that their dauhtr shouid
wed an American. " They were naturally
f earful, in view of the constantly increas
ing number of undesirable international
marriages, that Miss Mattie's happiness
might be jeopardized by an alliance with
one ot loreitfii iiii-t h, whose tastes and in
clinations, the result of generations of
training and environment, wonkl varv so
w idely from her own. The feelings of t he
parents were iullv made known to Ali.-s
Mitchell, and a perfect understanding ir
rived at between i hem.
LOYAL TO HER PARENTS.

am i'le Senator Mitchell's Statement.
Loyany aevoteu to the ohiect ol her
young ' affections, she yet gave abundant
prcof of strong filial love, and promised
that she would wed no one without their
cousent. Mrs. and Miss Mitchell returned
to the United States about this time, the
parents hoping that the daughter's affec
tions might by ahst-nce and change of
scene bp withdrawn from the
young Frenchman. "We kept her

-Our opposition to the match bad al.-.o
another element the attitude t.f the do-wag'-r
duchess. She had not met my
daughter during Mattie's first visit to
ria:;ce and earlier acquaintance with her
son. A family alliance between the duke
and a cousin had ls-en planned by ids
mother, and until she should express a
desire to have her son wed our daughter
we would not consent to an engagement.
Last year Mrs.- Mitt-hell was ordered i-v
her physician to a famous French bath, if
siie would regain her health, and Matt
went with her. Shortly after her arrival the
duke called mid renewed his suit.
It Was the Dnke or Nobody,
"Mattie wrote a letter stating the facts,
and saying 'I will be perfectly frank with
you. Frank as she called him has been
to see us, and the old question is before us.
As I told you, I will marry no one without
your cousent; we are old enough to know
our own minds, tnd if Frank and 1 may
not marry each oilier, we have determined
that we will never marry nt all.' It came
then to be a question of my daughter's
happiness, and I determined no longer to
be a bar thereto, and to give my consent to
the marriage ishe had already won oer

The Durhess Was Agreeable.
"So I wrote asking what she thought of
the matter. In the meantime, she had met
Mattie and become enthusiastically in
favor of the match, urging it upon Mrs

known to me there was no lunger any
leason for holding- out against it, and niy
consent went over. The dowager duchess
fou will see, gave the diner de contrat
tfter the civil marriage, at her Paris resi

on a wedding tour. .

America are patriots like Davitt and
Rossn, who have had no reason to suppose
that they were unwelcome in acountrv
