It was felt that when Madame Anna
Gould divorced her gay expensive little
husband Count Boni de Castellane and
married his hated rival the Prince de
Sagan that she was in for more touble
but it must be confessed no one expect
ed it -would come quite so soon When
this marriage took place not a year
ago Count Boni vowed vengence on
them both for in spite of the damaging
evidence as to his character which the
preceding trial had brot forth he per
sisted in declaring himself a much
maligned and injured man Anna
Gould loves her children and Count
Boni knew he could hurt her most by
taking them away from her so he has
appealed to the courts for the entire
right to them on the ground that
neither his former Countess nor his
cousin Prince Helie is a proper per
Bon to be intrusted with the bringing
up of young children At the opening
of the suit in Paris the other day
Count Bonis attorney M Bonnet drew
a terrible picture of De Sagans charac
ter as a well known roue and of his
demoralizing effect upon the woman he
has married as was evidenced by her
utter disregard of the conventionalities
In her association with him before she
became Princess Sagan The gay life
led by the Prince before his marriage
has been continued since M Bonnet
affirmed and proofs of this coming to
the ears of the Princess have rendered
her very unhappy and determined her
upon applying the second time to the
courts for relief from her matrimonial
troubles The French advocate dram
atically declared that when Prince uene
was taken to task by the Princess on
this score he was overcome with re
morse and prostrated himself before
her offering to become a monk and
spend the remainder of his unworthy
days in a monestery If she desired it
Which is amusing tho of course quite
untrue M Bonnet represented the
three children of Count Boni and
Countess Anna as little physical wrecks
neglected by their mother not allowed
postage stamps to -write to their father
when they were in New York last
year and as being shunned by other
children during their sojourn at some
hotel at Versailles on account of the
behavior of the Prince and Mme Gould
Count Boni prays the court to give him
the custody of the children and the
sum of 60000 a year to create a fund
for them that their Interests may be
protected in the event of other chil
dren being born to the wife of Prince
Sagan It Is his plan to place his off
spring under the care of his mother
Princess Anna on her part has denied
that there is any trouble between her
noble husband and herself emphatical
ly declaring that they are happy and
only want to be let alone Her brother
George has gone over to her and is do
ing all he can to prevent Count Boni
from winning his suit Thru his advo
cate he has declared that altho he was
opposed to his sister marrying Prince
Helie at first largely because he was a
relative of the Castellane family he
afterwards consented to the match and
that he believes most decidedly the chil
dren should be with their mother and
In the de Sagan home which he is con
vinced is a very happy one The
PrinceB lawyers have denied all Bonis
charges with regard to past and pres
nt itifliscrpilons on the Dart of their no
ble client and have boldly affirmed that
Castellanes sole motive in onnging oii
the suit Is hatred or de tjagan gouueu
to Jealous madness by the very thot of
his occupying the superb mansion of
- which Count Boni was once master etc
Hell hath no fury like a woman
corned sings the poet and a man
placed in the same position is no more
forgiving and no less inclined to seek
methods of revenge What Boni
wants first and foremost Is to hurt
the hated Sagan as much a3 pos
sible and separate him frpm the
rcnnirt millions which he found so con
venient while he manipulated them if it
can be done Then he would like to even
up his little score with the Princess by
taking the children away from her and
lastly he wants to get his hands on the
Jtldy little sum of 60000 a year of
which he can have the spending till his
offspring are of age It is a very neat
little plot but Count Boni will hardly
ee It successfully developed Princess
Anna with brother George by her side
will prove tod much for the dapper lit
tle French nobleman It Is believed
If Oscar Hammerstelns Ideas of the
duties and obligations of an operatic
Impresario are correct one would hard
ly think his class would be regarded
by women as desirable for husbands
Mr- Hammersteln is the manag jr of the
Manhattan Opera House and has lately
gotten into a little trouble with a Miss
Lee who haa sued him for breach of
contract Oscar saysa man engaged In
the making and discovering of prima
donnas cannot be judged by ordinary
standards that such a man is obliged
to encourage and sympathize and even
It would seem to make love to his sing
ers in order to perfect their artistic de
velopment He cannot come home to
dinner and luncheon and conform to
domestic rules and regulations like or
dinary men but has to be with his peo
ple whenever they most need him The
management of prima donnas is a very
ticklish piece of business Oscar de
clares and requires a special tempera
ment and infinite tact and patience In
the case of Miss Lee Oscar discovered
her a number of years ago when rfce
rave promise of becoming a very fine
tinger and was besides aj he says
the most charming the most attrac
tive and the sweetest woman imagin
able She did not fulfill expectations
as a singer and Oscar refused to make
her one of the prima donnaj of his
company For this Miss Lee has
brought suit and in the development of
her case she has produced some very
ardent love letters written to her by
the temperamental impresario With
regard- to these Oscar says- he is not
ashamed of them that when he cares
for a person he likes to write sweetly
to them and that it is all a part of his
professional duties and privileges any
way All of which goes to prove that
operatic managers should avoid further
complication by matrimony
Shop In the Moraine
Do your shopping In the morning
Thats the early Christmas warning
Thus it Is you miss the rushing
Crowding Jamming shoving crushing
Kicking scrapping swearing growling
Slamming slapping banging scowling
Waiting tiring sweating mopping
Incident to Christmas shopping
Do your shopping in the morning
Thats the Christmas shopping warning
Thats the message they are sending
Out to all who may be spending
Much or little at this season
Still if all obeyed the warning
Did their shopping in the morning i
Gay wouldnt it be nicer dropping
In of afternoons for shopping

It Is reported that John D Rockefel
ler will soon give 50000000 to the ed
ucation of the poor In China and India
where so little is done for the lower
classes In this respect The newspaper
etory is that the oil king is only waiting
for the reports of Prof Burton who s
In India studying conditions and Prof
Chamberlin who will start at once for
China for the same purpose before he
rives tho money While the richest
man in the world is most generous in
philanthropic purposes he is not wast
ing any of it on tips to -waiters etc It
Is said that recently in dining with some
friends at the Mansion House in New
Brunswick where he ate heartily of lob
ster scallops planked chicken etc he
bestowed when leaving a five cent tip
upon the all expectant waiter advising
him to put it at once in the bank where
it would Wgln to earn interest The
waiter listened respectfully to this bit
of advice but when the ample back of
the multi millionaire was turned freed
his mind to his- fellow waiters and what
he said could hardly be called compli

Two women who have been fighting
for justice in tho courts for many years
have lately each had a decision ren
dered in their favor Mrs Florence
Mavbrlck the American woman who
spent many long years in British prisons
for the alleged murder of her jsngnsn
husband is one of these and the widow
of Bob Ingersoll the other Mrs May
brick with her mother owned valua
ble lands In Virginia West Vir
ginia and Kentucky valued at
2500000 which Mrs Maybrlck
while In prison and in a state of
mind which rendered her irresponsi
ble deeded under misrepresentation
to her American lawyer D W Arm
strong for 10000 the price he set
upon the property For 10 years Mrs
Maybrlck and her mother have been
trying to have the courts declare that
deed invalid and this has just been
done by Judge Grinnell of the Chancery
Court at Richmond Va It Is expected
that the case will not be settled until
the Supreme Court of the United States
has passed judgment upon it In Mrs
Ingersolls suit the decision was final
and therefore more satisfactory This
lady claimed 100000 the fee agreed
upon and promised her distinguished
husband for successfully breaking the
will of Andrew J Davis a Montana
millionaire in favor of some disinherit
ed relatives Only 5000 of this
amount had ever been paid for this
service The case has been long in the
courts and finally the other day the
United States Supreme Court rendered
a decision in Mrs Ingersolls favor
And now it is King Edward of Eng
land who Is blamed for breaking off the
Elkins Abruzzi alliance if there was
really anything to break off Tho af
fair makes one -think of the familiar
game Now you see It now you dont
so contradictory have tne reports neen
regarding it from the first Tho Elkins
family themselves have shown such ad
mirable dignity and reserve that the
public does not know to this day
whether there ever has been Is now
or will be an engagement to marry be
tween these two young people nut
the latest newspaper story is that King
Edward favorable to the marriage or
his niece Patricia daughter of his
brother the Duke of Connaught to the
Count of Turin brother of the Duke of
the Abruzzi frowned- upon tne
Abruzzi alliance and refused to con
sent to a union of the reigning houses of
Great Britain and Savoy unless any
such intention was abandoned This
according to the papers has been done
and the curtain rung down on that little
international romance
Few women occupying a prominent
place in Washington official society had
a better opportunity ior meeting dis
tinguished men and women or for ac
cumulating a greater store of Interest
ing experiences than Mrs James G
Blaine herself a most Intelligent wom
an Her letters edited by her daugh
ter Mrs Harriett Blaine Bcale are
about to be published by a New York
house and promise a greater treat for
those to whom the feminine point of
view on political and other national
questions appeals or course Mrs
Blaines letters touch on other and
lighter matters but she was the close
companion of her distinguished ambit
ious husband sharing all his hopes and
aspirations and keeping herself luny
abreast of the times on all those great
national questions which absorbed him
and naturally her letters rellect much
of this In these letters she gives a
most interesting account of tho shoot
ing of President Garfield and of going
to the White House with Mrs Mc
Veagh wife of the Attorney General
after the terrible news had been brot
to her It seems Mrs Garfield was
away at tho time and as Mrs Blaine
was on very intimate terms with the
Garfields her first thot was to take the
place as far as she could of Mrs Gar
field on this tragic and awful occasion
She and Mrs McVcagh stood in the
hall when the President was brot In on
his litter who when he saw them suf
fering tho he was smiled and patheti
cally kissed his hand Later when laid
tenderly on his bed he beckoned to Mrs
Blaine pulled her down to him and
kissed her again and again begging her
to stay with him Mrs Blaine re
mained by the side of the assassinated
President until Mrs Garfield arrived
To have their functions distinguished
by some entirely new and novel feature
appears to be the aim and object of -life
with many society women who are con
stantly cudgeling their wits and those
of their friends for ideas along this line
A prominent aspirant for this sort of
honor and repujjitlon has lately made a
great hit in New York by her
floor teas Her guests are politely re
quested to take a seat on the floor when
they arrive and in this free and decid
edly unconventional attitude are served
to the cakes dainty sandwiches tea
etc provided by their hostess This
lady claims that under these conditions
she has found conversation to be much
more spontaneous and delightful than
Is usual at such functions when people
stand around or sit on chairs When a
lot of people get on the floor like that
they are carried back to the days of
their childhood and couldnt be digni
fied and stiff if they tried The shyest
and most quiet persons pipe up in a
perfectly astonishing manner and dis
play a charm In conversing previously
unsuspected This original hostcsss af
firms that It is wonderfully restful and
soothing to the nerves to sit on the
floor and that when In that attitude
ones worries fall off like water from a
ducks back and only pleasant thots
and Ideas fill the brain She predicts
that the tea will be a
very popular method of entertaining
from this tlmo on All this may bo very
true but the fact remains that to eit
on tho floor gracefully Is one of the
most difficult things In tho world to do
It la terribly hard on tho back and then
there Is the question of the disposition
of ones feet so disturbingly and un
compromisingly in evidence You may
tuck them under your skirts for a while
but the position soon becomes pain
fully cramped and you have either to
get up and stand on them or stretch
them out for a while to be relieved This
question docs not in the least concern
those women blessed with pretty dainty
feet who are secretly blad of this new
way of displaying them but for the
women with large ugly feet it Is a
poser and the chances are that such
will not be found at any

this has not dampened Carries ardor

Thi German Crown Princess Cc-
cilie has just given a striking evidence
of beautiful tender heartednes and
womanly sympathy by selling magnifi
cent diamond tiara estimated to be
worth 25000 that she might give the
money to the widows and orhpans of
those miners who perished In the ter
rible disaster at Hamm recently The
Crown Prince and Princess havo not
the spending of a creat deal of money
according to personal desire and the
Princess felt dissatisfied with the gift
of 1250 of her royal husband given
for this oblect as her heart was very
much touched by the sufferings of these
poor women and children Some mem1
bers of the court were horrified at the
idea of a member of the imperial fam

money but tho German people gener

with hearty enthusiasm her noble
womanly action
Queen Alexandras book of camera
pictures taken by herself with foot
notes of explanation has nroven to be
one of the Six Best Sellers in England
seriously affecting the sale of all otner
books This places the English writers
In a rather peculiar position since de
votion to their Queen would prevent
them from saying anything against the
sale of the book and yet It has been
something of a trial for them to see a
book of pictures preierrea to tnose oi
real literary merit Pride as well as
the pocketbook has had to suffer on
account of tho Queens charity book
and undoubtedly tho English writers
have devoutedly wished that Alexandra
would stick to her business of opening
bazaars etc and let them furnish the
books for the country
In doing our Christmas shopping it
Is well to think of the poor girls in the
shops who have been working ovjr
hours for weeks and who become more
and more exhausted each day as they
stand on aching feet with tired heads
and backs trying to be pleasant and
helpful to the customer Consider these
poor girls and do your shopping as
early as possible before they have
reached this stage of exhaustion and
thus help to prevent that awful rush at
tho last moment when it is a wonder
these poor girls keep their heads at all
It could all be made so much easier
for both the shop girls and the cus
tomers if women would begin early
when both are rested and normal Yet
the very rush and Jam is what some
women like and selfishly put off their
shopping until the very last moment
when the excitement Is at tho highest
point -

have the best climate the best soil the

Said George F White of Macon
No doubt about it at all What Is
more at the rate we are growing we
will by-and-by have the best politics
for the day of Invariable adherence to
any political party Is about closed with
us We now very often vote our con
victions and not a party name and
that will be the general custom In a
very short time
Said Mr George W Brinson of Sa
vannah We are becoming so impor
tant in business that we forget politics
and when a man forgets politics until
he has to do his voting he is apt to
vote with business discernment and real
patriotic enthusiasm
Said another We have Immense
acreages of land ready for reduction to
production The man of the North who
Is looking for a new home would be
come a Georgian on the Instant if he
could see what the possibilities of cul
tivation are
Mr White added Our vegetables
and our fruits are superior to any grown
in other soils and therefore find a wel
coming market and bring prices above
those of otherwheres and we get the
really desirable markets because while
Florida beats us they have the very
early market leaving the early for us
and we have It without competition
Said the Mayor It dont matter
what you plant around Savannah or
north of it or west of it for a days trav
el what you put into the soil will grow
and yield a profitable harvest You
may plant vegetables or cotton plums
or posies and when you plant you will
know that a good crop will follow
