Hoi IB If Social Saunterings Hi (I Aftei' a terrible struggle, but without loss of Hi IT life and without any very serious casualties on Hjlfc either side, a new board of directors for the Coun- H UL try Club to serve during the ensuing year was H IT elected on Tuesday. . H m Following a campaign conducted with all the Hill energy of youth and wisdom of middle age, and Hit! ne in which several makes of motor cars and Hyl1 individual lino telephones were used to advan- HjlP IngP. l"e party of progress won a second triumph, HM; six of the noblest Romans were nominated, the Hf nominations were closed, the six were sustained HIk and it was all over in two shakes of a dead HL lamb's proverbial tail. Hit There was not a dissenting voice not even H-jkf the Avireless from over the seas hurling a protest, Hip or suggesting that it was bad form to hurry. H J vIt was really a meeting of acceptance every H 1 1 body was agreeable, everybody had a good time, M i i and from the personnel of the new directors it M I may be expected that the season of 1909 at the 1 1 Country Club will bo the one best bet. The min- H j utes were accepted, the treasurer's report was M '- accepted, a beautiful golf trophy, which Mr. Jack al . ling had induced Mr. Tiffany to part with, was ac- cepted, and the statement that came with it, to -. the effect that it was to be the permanent prop- B erty of the club, was joyfully accepted. Then a H motion to elect by acclamation was accepted and H tn victorious gentlemen who ran against Colonel H Bogey were found to be D. C. Jackllng, C. W. Whit- H lej , R 0. Gemmel, J. Frank Judge, Sam Neel, and H' S. A. Whitney. H And that's perfectly all right. M & & & Hi, The marriage of Miss Mary Moore to Jasper H . A. McCaskoll took place at the. home of Mr. and Hl Mrs. Samuel Newhouse on Tuesday evening, and H ' the beautiful house, whioh has been the scene of H so many notable affairs, was never before the H setting for such an array of beauty and bril H H In pleasurable anticipation of the event, the H friends of Miss Moore and McCaskoll have for B, several weeks outdone one another in honoring H them at entertainments of every description, and m the interest aroused with the flrst ar uouncement HH came to a most fitting culmination in the cere- HH mony performed by the Rev. Father Kiely on B Tuesday night. m The bride was attended by her sister, Miss M Geoigeida Mooic, as maid of honor; the brides M maids were the Misses Anna and Genevieve Mc- m Cornick and Mrs. Arthur Bird, Mrs. Frank Judge, H Mis. L. B. McCornick and Mrs. J. J. Campbell were H also of the bridal party. With Mr. McCaskell M stood his brother, George McCaskell, and James M Salisbury. m On either side of the great arch of white roses m and carnations, from which hung a wedding bell, H were the relatives and intimate friends of the w joung people, including, among others, Mr. and B Mrs. Moore, Mrs. McCaskoll, Mr. and Mrs. New M house, Mrs. M. A. Stlngley, Mr. and Mrs. W. S. M McCornick, Mrs. Salisbury, Mr. and Mrs. Stingley, M and many others, nearly two hundred friends H being present to witness the ceremony and ex- B tend their felicitations to Mr. and Mrs. McCaskell H The charming bride never looked prettier and H the fact that no particular color schome in dress H was followed by her attendants gave an oppor- H tunily for elaborate costumes that was most of- H fective. AH of the ladies present had seemingly H been limitless in their planning of costumes, and H with a background oi hundreds of American Beau- m ties, the result was very beautiful. H Mr and Mrs. McCaskoll have gone to the coast, H .ind will later sail for Honolulu, returning in the H t-piing to make their ' e in this city. The shocking death of Mrs. L. C. Tuckerman, daughter of General and Mrs. A. C. Girard, news of which came from Chicago early in the week was a distinct shock to the friends of the Girard family in this city. When General Girard, then Major, was stationed hero with the SJxteenth, the Glrards were among the most popular people at the Past, and their home was the scene of many society affairs. The Girard girls, who at the time they were here, were Mrs. Steven son, Mrs. Bush, (Mrs Tuckerman) and Miss Violet Girard, were noted for their beauty and were among the most prominent and popular of army belles. Mrs. Stevenson and Miss Girard lived here with their parents, and Mrs. Bush visit ed the Post on several occasions. The Girards remained at the Post after the Sixteenth ,eft, and for some time after the coming of the Twenty-fourth Infantry, and Mrs. Stevenson married Lieutenant, now Captain I. C. Jenks of the Twenty fourth. The marriage of Lieutenant Jenks and Mrs. Stevenson was one of the largest and most fash ionable affairs that ever took place at the Post, and was remarkable for the fact that it caused a great deal of comment in army circles owing to the fact that theirs was the first wedding or white people at which the ceremony was per formed by a colored chaplain, the chaplain of the Twenty-fourth Infantry officiating. Miss Violet Girard was also married here to Lieutenant Arthur Kerwin of the same regiment. 5 r O Mrs. Tuckerman who met with such a fear ful accident at the hands of George Busse, the brother of Fred A. Busse, the Mayor of Chicago, in the Walton Apartments on Sunday evening was an extremely beautiful woman of the tall blonde tyre. The circumstances of the shooting were particularly distressing as General and Mrs. Girard had gone to Chicago to visit with their daughter, whom they had not seen for some time. They were to have accompanied Mrs. Tuckerman to her home in New York on Tuesday. Mrs. Tuckerman was formerly married to Lieutenant Bush, who was stationed in San Fran cisco just before the Spanish War, during the bujldlng and equipment of the general hospital at the Presidio, most of the work being done under his direction. Later Mrs. Bush accompanied her husband to the Philippines, where she met Tucker man. Mrs. Bush and her husband had not been congenial for some time, and upon her return from the Philippines sho established her resi dence in Reno, Nevada, where she secured a dl vorce, among the charges being that her husband was too religious. Her marriage to Tuckerman followed shortly afterwards. General Girard was one of the most noted of ficers in the army, and after his retirement con tinued in active work for some time, practicing medicine and surgery. He has lately served in the capacity of medical librarian at the John Crerar Library, and Is a regular contributor to the loading medical journals. S & The sentiments of the kiddies are occasionally worth repeating, and two that made their own families merry recently are worth repeating. A young man in a certain Brigham street home went over to make a call on a new baby cousin who arrived recently, and when, he heard that the cousin was a boy, jumped for joy. "That's fine," he remarked; "there's him and me, and now all you need to do is get seven more, and we'll have a baseball nino." Two young misses, slightly older than the youngsters above, were having a lively discussion on marriage. One of them said: "I wouldn't marry a gold man stuffed with diamonds." The other got an inspiration and replied: "I would, and kick) the stuffing out of him." 8 & & P. L. Williams, Jr., will entertain at dinner during the coming week for Miss Geddes, Captain Conrad and their bridal party. Others who will' entertain in their honor are Mr. and Mrs. John C. Niven, Major and Mr 3. Arrasmith, Captain Mc Caskey and Lieutenants Green and Waterman. S & J8 The marriage of Miss Sara Terrell and R. K. Stockwell will take place on Wednesday, Feb ruary 24th, at the First Presbyterian Church, Dr. W. M. Paden officiating. S & S HAPPENINGS AND WHEREABOUTS. In honor of Miss Geddes, Mrs. W.
