A RESTORED CASTLE.
THt ENGLISH l-OME OF THE DUCH
ESS OF VARLBOROUGH.
What American Wealth Hns Hone tnx
One of England's Historic .Mansions.
Hoiv an American Womaa Has Beaatl
fled nnl Improved an Old Estate.
The present Dt chess of .Marlborough,
Bunted to a desc- idant of the Chttrchilla,
is herself the da ighter of a "leader by
sea," her father lit ring been a commodore
of the United .Stat -s navy. As Miss Lilian
Price, when only n young girl her lK-auty
attracted admiration, not only in her na
tive town of Troy, X. Y., bat in the wider
circles of Washing ton diplomatic life. The
duchess, after the death of her first hus
band, Mr. Louis Hammersley, of New
York, came overti England, on her second
piarriage, ami sin se then her energy has
ione not a little t ) restore Blenheim, that
magnificent mem trial to the founder of
the family's fortunes, to something of its
former beauty ant grandeur.
Xo. 8 Carlton House Terrace was for
many years before it came into the posses
sion of the Duchess of Marlborough the
residence of the late Lady Hrownlow
whose hospitality there is still very pleas
antly rememberei and it is one of the
largest of those huge mansions that form
the terrace. The hall and vestibule are
softly carpeted n t a footstep breaks the
silence and warn ly colored, and against
the dull crimson of the wall interesting
trophies ol arms a id weapons are artistic
ally arranged. The wide staircase is
broken hail way 1 y a broad landing, and
in Lady Hrownlow 's time the second short
flight gave immediate access to the morn
ing room, but the laches has altered this
somewhat inconv intent arrangement by
making the old boudoir into a large, square
antechamber, divided from the staircase
by six handsome columns of verde antique
Opening from t lis, down two or three
steps, is a new room built by the duchess
specially for her o vn sanctum, and easily
shut off when desired by portieres and
glass doors. Its proportions are lofty and
pleasing, the wall' are hung in brocade of
soft, brilliant, yet pale green shade, and it
is filled with a ttousaud interesting and
historic souvenirs. Its one broad window
gives access to a miniature conservatory,
with palms and t ropical ferns made gay
with choice flowers. Orchids are her
grace's favorite exotic, and those who are
familiar with tin "Blenheim" selections
can at once realize the gorgeous effect that
can be attained.
In this little sal in the duchess is never
disturbed, and bri jht though it is, it is not
too large to be cot ifortable and cozy. The
decorations are I ouis XYI in style, the
marble chimneyp ece being a particularly
fine example of l'rench workmanship of
that period, and si. owing evidences of Kng
lish influence in d. sign and execution. The
central jamb was taken from one of the
original mantelpieces of Blenheim palace.
The wide hearth h tiled in marble, and on
it burns an old, veil seasoned oak fire.
Above the narrow mantelshelf is a beauti
ful portrait, by Joshua Reynolds, of one of
the Churchill ai cestresses, and on the
walls hang a few rare and valuable pic
tures of Reynold-; and others, ami three
valued on account of belonging to the Em
press Eugenie, with whom they were spe
cial favorites in hi ppier days.
The drawing rot ms form a stately suite
of rooms openingone from the other. The
proportions are ve -y striking and the lofti
ness of the ceiling -, finished in a half cone,
are very elaborate in design, being a re
plica of one of the ceilings of Versailles of
Ix)uis XYI period. The work was exe
cuted by skilled French workmen brought
from Paris special y for the purpose. In
the front drawing room the walls are hung
with rich satin da nask of the shade known
as "bouton dor" md on this background
are excellent old lemfsh tapestries sup
plemented here and there by some artistic
gem in bronze orsime veritable old master
sent from the g; llery at Rlenheim. A
very superior work of art, standing in a
corner on a slentlt r marble pedestal, is a
fine bust in greet bronze of Louis XIV
nnd a large mirrrr of old French work
manship hangs o.-er the mantelshelf in
itself an exceptional specimen of the
Eighteenth century stone carving with
massive candelabra on either side.
That the due he s has inherited her na
tion's love for fl wers is amply testified,
for they hold audi -pitted sway on all sides,
adorning the tab es. growing in pots or
thrown carelessly into antique vases and
great crystal bowls.
The second drawing room, with its three
windows opening out on St. James' park,
is a room full of curiosities over which one
might linger for hours. The walls and
draperies are of a bright flame colored
damask, the color and design being Blen
heim heirlooms, and its resuscitation is
due to the duke l aving accidentally dis
covered an old cl air, a torn fragment of
the original, which so pleased htm that he
had t he pattern fabric copied and repro
duced, i ne pieiu -es ol tins inner drawing
room are for the most part original Ru
benaea brought fnm the lilenheim collec
tion. Whatever may be the attractions of
Carlton house t -mice to the duchess,
lilenheim. nevertl eless, is the home of her
choice, and on the rehabilitation of that
historic spot she has lavished her wealth
unsparingly. This palace, besides being,
from its size and i laguificence and its his
torical associations, one of the most re
markable countrj homes of England, is
most charmingly situated, and there is
hardly another place which conveys such
a perfect feeling o- Knglisli country scen
ery as the genth , undulating hills, the
beautiful woods, and the winding lake,
which form the setting of the gem the
The palace date? back only to the begin
ning of last century, when, by special act
:f parliament, the Royal manor, of Wood
stock, was settled mt the first duke and his
heirs forever, with a pension of o,000 in
perpetuity as a rational recognition and
reward for his ser ices as captain general
of the queen's fort es.
The duke and duchess spend the greater
part of the year h re, coming to town only
a few months in he season, and here, on
every hand in th splendid orchid houses,
extensive conservi tories, the roseries and
flower gardens, as well as in the interior
arrangements of t le great establishment
the hand of theytung duchess is plainly
to be seen. Loiiton Cor. Ban Francisco
