VERT much mud-bespattered
young man got off a very tired horse. His best friend would not have known him. "Well, we won at last!" said he. And that was the be ginning of the romance of Mary Harriman. She has recently married young Charles Cary Rumsey of New York and Buffalo. He rode her horse that eventful day for him and for her two years ago at Au gust Belmont's race track, Belmont park, on Long island, Just outside the limits of New York city. The races were private. All the young bloods of New York's smartest set, and some of the young woman, had their horses entered, and Mr. Bel mont had given them the use of his track. Among others who had en tered was Miss Harriman, eldest daughter of E. H. Harriman, then very much the master mind of Amer ican railway finance. Twice before had Miss Harriman tried to win a race with this same horse. Twice before had young Mr. Rumsey ridden only to be beaten. This time he won not only the race. Due a Driae. Ana against the pro tests of Miss Harriman, who didn't want him to ride. Why? It was an awful day. The rain was falling and the track was fetlock deep in mud. Miss Harriman sug gested that her horse be withdrawn she didn't want young Mr. Rumsey to take a chance with Fate and per haps be hurt, or even worse. "You don't know him," said some one, when she suggested that she withdraw her entry. If the truth must be known. Miss Harriman's horse was no wonder. He got off last and every minute the big field ahead was kicking up the mnd In the faces of horses and riders. But young Mr. Rumsey kept on the Job despite his handicap of bad horse and rlman's commissions were execntea lust to her liking. And there were- other ones, too, at the same time. Mr. Rumsey did a fountain for one of the. Buffalo parks, to follow it up with ft bronze plaque of his sister, Mrs. Charles Goodyear of Buffalo, on her' favorite horse, with her dog playing in front. He did a bronze of a calf and a colt saying "Good morning!" This was highly praised by the critics.. He did another bronze of a horse and ri der drinking from the same spring on the desert, and this he named "Found." "The Horse Trainers" was his next bronze, a spirited represen tation of two men breaking in a pair of native horses. Then he modeled a "Bacchante," which won high en comiums. He was seeing Miss Har riman almost daily, too. PROOF POSITIVE. Time of Engagement Not a Public Affair. who didn't know very much put down young Mr. Rumsey as just another struggling artist a poor sculptor. But young Mr. Rumsey is not poor. He comes of an old and distinguished Buffalo family, which is wealthy, too. His home, where dwell his father and mother today, is one of the show places of Buffalo. Though in the heart of the city it backs up on a beau tiful private park, with trees and lawns and shrubbery, a lake and a boathouse, which would make John D. Rockefeller's private garden In New York city look like the backyard of a tenement house. His father inherited the heme from young Rumsey's grandfather, Bron son Rumsey, one of Buffalo's leading citizens for half a century. His wealth was made in leather, real estate and railway enterprises. Like the rest of his family, Charles Rumsey went to Harvard and was a member of the class of 1902. Like his father before him, he became a member of the Institute of 1770, the Porcelain club and the Hasty Pudding, the best or ganization at Harvard. Even at college Rumsey, '02, showed his artistic bent. As a Junior he modeled a statue of an Indian on horseback it was entitled "Welcom ing the East" which was accepted officially by the managers of the Pan- American exposition. Buffalo, in 1901. New York Studio After Long Study in Paris. When he was graduated he decided to take up an artistic career instead of going into business. Se he went to Paris and there studied for four years Always a horseman, like the rest of his family, he won the Concours Hip pique. Fond of athletics, he took the gold medal for boxing among the stu dents of the Beaux arts, France's pre mier artistic institution, frequented by so many young Americans. Then young Rumsey came back to New York and set up his studio, All this time Rumsey was riding horses and meeting people, and Miss Harriman was there to see him. The young woman loves polo, and few play that strenuous game better than Mr.- Rumsey, who learned it from his polo playing uncles, Trumbull Cary, Thomas Cary, Doctor Charles Cary, George Cary and Seward Cary, all ot Buffalo. They brought the game to this country more than 30 years ago and are at it still. One of Charles Rumsey's proudest possessions is a souvenir photograph of himself on a team with the sons of John G. Mil- burn, formerly of Buffalo and now of New York, with H. Townsend Da vis, slaving against a team of four of his uncles. It might be mentioned that the uncles whipped the young sters to a frazzle. Occasionally Miss Harriman saw Mr. Rumsey play polo. Newsnamr representatives are not present when youiyt people decide td become engaged. However, it might. have been his polo or his riding or hia sculpture or just perhaps himself ! but, anyway, something was Bald one pleasant day when Mr. Rumsey and Miss Harriman were riding together that Induced Mrs. Harriman to an nounce an engagement. It was a quiet wedding because of- the mourning of the Harrimans. It took place at Arden, N. Y., in the pres ence of the two families, with a few friends. Afterward Mrs. Harrimar. went to Europe. A short time ago Miss Harriman went to Buffalo to visit the fam ily into which she has married. There she saw many new faces. Her unaffected manner, her girl ish ways, her apparent desire to make friends whorever she might be. added to her preailse. Being in mourn ing, she was not able to see Buffalo society. Her visit was a most quiet one. Nevertheless she made a most favorable impression. She was distressed at the publicity given to her coming marriage, as were the family of the young man himself. because of her mourning. At the Rum sey home, where she was staying, all information was refused. It may be said, however, that Mr. Rumsey has three sisters, two of them married and a young brother, Miss Harriman is an executor of her father's estate and is worth perhaps $100,000,000. She has one married sister, Mrs. Robert L. Gerry, and an unmarried one, Miss Carol. She has two brothers, W. A. Harriman and Ro land Harriman. She and her mother have managed Mr. Harriman's estate since his death, and to her has fallen the conduct of the 45,000 acre place at Arden, where she was married. It might happen that some day young Mr. Rumsey might take his wife to his home in Buffalo, there to make their abiding place. It was built before the Harrimans had a pen ny, even if the bridegroom-to-be is just a sculptor. Hix My son must be insane. Nix What makes you think so? Hix He got married yesterday and he only gets $10 a week salary. worse weather. One horse fell; an other quit. Miss Harriman's entry crossed under the wire a nose ahead, thereby gaining great eclat for the horse. And when he came back to Miss Harriman to tell her about the race, Mr. Rumsey was just about as unromantic a figure as x could be. Nevertheless he won the heart of Miss Harriman. Mutual Tastes Knit the Hearts of Young People. The race was two years ago. Mr. Rumsey had already known the rail road man's daughter for two years. . A few - months ago Mrs. Harriman, widow of E. H. Harriman. formally announced the engagement of her daughter Mary to young Rumsey. and Miss Harriman spent some time in Buffalo as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Laurence D. Rumsey. father and mother of the next Harriman son-in- law. The young people met for the first time four years ago at Meadow Brook. L. I-, where those who love the horses best like to foregather. Young Mr. Rumsey. out of Harvard four years before, had just returned from Paris, where he had spent four years at the Beaux Arts, studying sculpture. He had taken a little studio in New York, at 65 East Fifty-ninth street. In a little old-fashioned building, between Park and Madison avenues.

While a child there broke out a red sore on the legs just in back of my knees. It waxed from bad to worse. and at last I saw I had a bad skin disease. I tried many widely known doctors in different cities but to no satisfactory result. The plague both ered me more In warm weather than in winter and being on my leg joints it made It impossible for me to walk, and I was forced to stay Indoors In the warmest weather. My hopes of recov ery were by this time spent. Sleepless nights and restless days made life an unbearable burden. At last -1 was advised to try the Cuticura remedies Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Pills and I did not need more than a trial to convince me that I was on the road of success this time. I bought two sets of the Cuticura Remedies and after these were gone I was a differ ent man entirely. I am now the hap piest man that there is . at least one true care for skin diseases.

"Not at all," replied the genial citi zen. "Wnen we go out evenings my wife wears more than enough hair for two." Among the first people he met were the Harrimans. Mr. Harriman was building his wonderful estate at Ar den, N. Y., and he wanted some one to do a little sculpture for him. It happened that Mr. Rumsey got the billet. He did it well, too. Then Miss Harriman devoted to horses thought that a frieze of bas-reliefs of horses would look well in the library. Charles Rumsey got that commis sion. One of the handsomest rooms at Arden today Is the library. Of course. Miss Harriman often oame to see the young sculptor at work. Then they got to know each other better and it chanced that Mr. Rumsey told of his love of horses. There was a common ground at once. Miss Harri man is quite as much a horsewoman as he is a horseman. Both liked polo Mr. Rumsey has played it ever since he was a youngster; Miss Harriman has always watched it. And so it transpired that he rode Miss Hani man's horse at the private races and after falling twice, finally won. . Miss Harriman wanted a horse mod eled. So she gave the work to young Rumsey. Then she wanted a sculp tured relief of herself on horseback. What was more natural than that Mr. Rumsey should do it? So with her mother or some other relative she visited the little studio In East Fifty ninth street day after day. Mr. Rumsey worked well with his clay and his bronze, and Miss liar- STEPS HASTENED BY LOVE Sight of True Devotion Repaid Gate keeper for His Violation of the Rules.

Far be it from me to interrupt her in such nice little attentions." The train came In. Gibson sort of looked out of the tall of his eye for a chance to witness the happy reunion. Such sights illumine the dark recesses of the dingy old depot. In a moment he caught sight of her. But her husband or sweetheart if she has one or the other was not with her. However, she was not alone. Under her arm she clutched tightly a compact brindle English bulldog with a countenance like a dissipated gargoyle. Cleveland Plain Dealer. Still a Chance.
