REQAL WEDDING AT HOME
OF LORD AND LADY PLAYFAIR.
Lord and Lady I'layfalr, who spent
last winter at tho Moana Hotel recent
ly married their daughter tho Hon.
Lucy Playfalr to Captain L. Soltau
Hymons and the following Interesting
account has been sent:
Tho marrlago took place on Thurs-I
day afternoon, at tho Minster Church,
Wlmborno of the Honblo Lucy Jessie
Lyon Playfalr, the only daughter of
Lord Playfalr, C. V. O., Mcrley House,
Wlmborno, and Capt. Llonol Culmo
Soltau-Symons, Royal Warwickshire
Regiment, youngest, son of Mr. and
Mrs. George Soltau-Symons, of Chad
UUiwood, Devon. Although Lord Play
ititr has only recently come to reside
In tho neighborhood Immense Interest
was centred In the event, tho church
being filled, whilst a number of pcoplo
awaited the arrival and departure of
the bridal pafty from tho outside.
Tho Interior of tho church had been
most tastefully adorned; on either
Bldo of tho Btcps to tho altar were
grouping of chrysanthemums, lilies
nnd maidenhair ferns, overhung by
drooping palms'; the choir Btalls were
also bordered with whlto blooming
plants, culminating In groups outside
tho altar rails, whilst tho attar vases
wero flllcd with masses of whlto
chrysanthemums and arum lilies. Dur
ing the assembling of the many guestB
Mr. A. E. Wiltshire (organist) played
the Bridal March from "Lohengrin"
und Mendelssohn's "Corncllano," and
ut tho conclusion of tho marrlago
ceremony Mendelssohn's Wedding
March. Tho officiating clergy wore
tho Rov. Fcnwlck Fisher (Vlcnr of
tho Minster), The Borvlco was fully
choral, and tho hymns sung wero,
"How wolcoinu was tho call" and
"Pralso tho Lord," whilst tho 28th
I'snlm was chanted. Thd bride was
given away by her father (Lord Play
falr), and looked most charming,
wearing a beautiful gown of whlto
natln, embroldorcd with centre panel
of pearls and paste, tho skirt and
bodlco being trimmed with frills and
flounces of old Brussels lace, and tho
Court train, which fell from the
phouldors, with orange blossom and
a bordering of lace, Falling over the
crescent wreath of orange blossom,
made by having scores numbered with
tablo and couple, one set for tho men
end tho other for the girls. Thus
each Individual gets a score with
"Tablo one, couplo two," or "Tablo
two, couple one." Each person has
n partner, finds him or her, and to
gether tako their places at tho table.
Handing around the scores Bhould
always bo tho signal for beginning
play, so continued talking or "visit
ing" among tho other guests should
After tho game has begun each
player Bhould remember that even
though ho'or sho may not caro for
cards ono's partner may bo a keen
player, and It Is oiio'b duty to play
well, always showing the utmost. cour
tesy, under no circumstances allow
ing oneself to bo drawn Into n dis
cussion of any play or game.
A "progressive" evening Is better
than keeping tho tables unchanged,
for by moving on when winning the
guests seo more of one another.
Refreshments may be of tho light
est sandwiches, a salad and Ico
cream and cake being qulto sufficient
Tho cakes and sandwiches may o
baked or cut In card forms, hearts,
clubs, spades and diamonds. Little,
inexpensive cutters of tin nro made
tor the purpose.
The supper may be served cither
In tho dining room or brought Into
tho apartment where the guestB have
been playing. In tho latter case small
whlto covers should bo placed over
the tablo tops. Tho men may do all
tho Bervlng, no maid being necessary.
This will bo quite simple If every
thing Is ready to bo brought In.
To have expenslvo prizes Is qulto
unnecessary. Two or threo for girls
ond two for tho men aro enough un
less ono has more than four tables.
A llttlo party such as this requires
a call afterward from each guest,

Totty was a little miss of five. One
bright day In December she sat In
tho big bay window of the library
looking at a picture book, from which
her grandnfumma had just been read
ing a fairy talo to her. Just a min
ute before grandmamma had gone to
mamma's room to seo how mamma
and the new baby brother were get
ting on, and had told Totty to stop
there in the sunslilno till she should
Hut Tolly's heart was a bit heavy
'on this beautiful day. The stork had
left new baby brother nt their house
the night beforo, and Totty felt that
sho no longer held tho place In her
parents' hearts undivided. Even papa
had hurried from the breakfast room
to see how "Bulger" was getting on;
and grandmamma, too, was so much
taken up by the new arrival that she
went to mamma's room every little
while to see tho usurper In his cradle.
Totty had been allowed to see the
new baby brother as soon as sho was
dressed that morning, but she bad
not been in tho least demonstrative
over him. The fact Is, Totty could
not understand at all why there was
such a fuss over that tiny thing, or
the bald head and wrinkled, ugly
face, no larger than a little puppy
and not half so cute. Why, the new
baby brother didn't even open his
squinting eys, and he held his fingers
all wadded up Into little fists. Now,
had ho been fat, laughlngnnd crow
ing Ilka the Browns' baby boy
Totty would not have mtndcd his In
trusion Into tho family so much, for
she could huvo amused herself with
him nt times when she had nothing
olse to do. But this tiny thing, that
didn't even know when he was spok
en to won her condemnation rather
than her admiration and affection.
As Totty sat thinking over the new
comer and feeling herself ousted from
her rightful place, as supreme being
In that household, her eyes fell on
n picture In one of the Idly turned
pages. It was of a fairy princess,
leading a little golden-haired girl
liko herself through flowers and
vines. All about them were winged
fairies flitting through tho air, and
a magnificent golden castle roso
majestically on a mountain top In
the distance. Toward this castle the
fairy was leading the little girl.
Wish I could go homo with a
fairy princes and become her little
girl," mused Totty. "And I guess
nobody would care, either, If I wero
gone. That teen tsy-ween tsy thing
upstairs takes my place now, and
papa and mamma, and even grand
mamma, wouldn't miss poor Tofty."
Tho aggrlovcd little miss got up,
went to her own little room which
opened into grandmamma's room
nnd got her hat und coat: she also
bethought herself of her muff and
tippet, for the weather was cold, and
phe might have a distance to go bo-
fore reaching her destination.
After putting on her wraps down
s-talrs, watching that no one might
see her doing so, Totty stole softly
out at tho back door and made off
through tho snow-covered garden to
ward the back gate. Once outside
her own yard tho little miss' feet
fairly flew down the alloy toward the
big -road which led Into the country.
"Thert's where tho fairies live,"
sho said, pointing toward a bluish
line of timber in the distance.

Mrs. Harrington Brown (Charlton

Mrs. Goodden Chtsholm (Ferndown)
was In grey velvet and Bilk, with hat
to match and Illumes. Lord Ischcster,

is as follows:
In commemoration of tho marrlago

a ball to tho tradesmen and the ser
vants on Monday ocning, the Invl

and employees, of tho various county

For a long time tho little one went
on and on, but the bluish lino of
timber seemed to become no nearer.
The road she choso soon after reach
ing the "big road" led her off over
hills and through hollows that wero
covered with last year's grass nnd
brush, now dead and hanging full of
recently fallen snow. Iter reason for
taking this .unfrequented road wan
to nvold the many people who came
Into town by wagon or on foot over
the "big road," as the main thor
oughfare was called.
Pretty soon Totty began to feel
very tired, and she then realized that
her hands and feet wero quite numb
from tho cold. Her no6e, too, felt
stinging, and she put her muff over
it to thaw It out.
"It's a long, long way off to where
the falrless live," Bhe murmured.
Then she began to feel some uneasi
ness. Suppose sho should not reach
the castle of the Fairy Princess be
fore dark? "It'B all New Baby

phatically to herself. "He came and

having first accorded a kindly we!-:

Tho ball took place In tho dining

served at 1:30 n. in. In another largo,

Bought out a fallen log, on ono sine
