It has leaked out in Chicago that Mu real, the great French vaudeville singer, perhaps better known as the "Gay Parisian," and Mr. D. P. Phillips, her manager, were recently married in the Windy City. Mr. Phillips is one of the beat kngwn men and managers in America, and is now conducting a theatrical bureau in the Chicago opera house block. He is especially popular among Western profes sionals, as much of his labor has been done beyond the Rockies, and he is a Californian by birth.

Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt's friends hear with much delight that her contribution to the gayety of midsummer will be an outdoor theatrical performance. On this occasion the lawn of Beaulleu, at N'ewport, quite famous for its rare shade trees, will be both stage and auditorium, and the full August moon glowing upon the water be yond the cliff which skirts Beaulien on pleture. Outdoor theatricals have often been talked of here, but Mrs. Vanderbilt is apparently the first person to really ap preciate the novel and interesting possi bilities of such an entertainment. It will be recalled that last year .Mrs. Vanderbilt arranged for a theatrical per formance in her drawing room, which was given up, even after the guests had begun to arrive, on account of the death of President McKinley. Then a sketch writ ten by Miss Caroline Duer was to have been performed by some amateurs, friends of Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt, and it is not improbable that the same author and the same players will assist Mrs. Vanderbilt next month. WITH STILETTOS. Parisian Actresses Fight for the Love of a Man. [Paris Cor. New York W\orld.] One of King Leopold's ballet girl friends, Gabrielle Fison, known on the stage as Nana, fought a regular duel with her rival4 Victorine Giot, who caholts herself l.a Mar quise. Both girls were in love with the same man, but this time it wasn't a case of reve nue, for Leon Bournon, though a society man, has only an income of 500 francs per month. All the girls worship him for his moustache. The two women met on one of the boulevards and addressed each other In about the same words: "Thou lovest Leon. I love him also. He can belong only to one of us. Hence, we must light.. After the theater Nana sent a male friend to La Marquise to arrange the meet ing. As La Marquise had her seconds ready they soon calme to an understanding. Meeting place: 'A corner In the Bois, where Count Boni and other hotheads usually exploit their "affairs." Time : Six o'clock next morning. Weapons: Stilet tos: Dress: Naked to the waist, save silk corset cover or linen shift. The duel came off as provided and lasted go seconds by the watch. It ended when La Marquise stumbled to the ground with a jagged wound in her left breast. At the same moment mounted police guards ap peared on the scene. The manager of the Folies, where the girls are engaged, had given the information. Nana allowed herself to be hustled off into a carriage, but the weapon was forced from her hand only after a struggle. Even then she begged that the blood of her enemy might be wiped off on her handker chief as a souvenir. La Marquise will die. As the duel was arranged with all due formalities, seconds, physicians, etc., Nana will probably get offi with a tew months. "Never mind," she says, "when I come out I will have Leon," Royalty Sings Coon Song. That royalty can sing a "coon" song with the best of them was demonstrated by Princess Henry of Pleas at a matinee performance in the Shaftesbury theater, London, the other day. It was really a wonderful show, because the elite of the Wrest End furnished all the "talent," as the theatrical papers say; but the princess carried off the chief honors. To hear a scion of British and German royalty imitating the accents of your Southern "darkey" and shouting "'Way Down in Georgia" a la Artie Hall, was a spectacle .calculated to make the late Queen Victoria turn in her grave. Twen tieth century too is so advanced l David's Line. I ,When David Belasco and II. C. De Mille wrote "The Charity Ball" there wu a speech in it that did not please Herbert Kelcey, leading man of the company. The words Kelcey objected to were quoted from one of David's psalms. Ignorant of its origin, Kelcey said to De Mille: "I don't like that line. It's bombastic and old-fashioned." "The line is not mine, but David's," re plied De Mille, referring of course to the psalmist. "I thought so " cried Kelcey, triumph antly. "I'd recognize Belasco's style any where." Green &.oom Gos.rip. A vaudeville girl who does not say "you will" for "you'll," will be presented with a rattlesnake belt by applying to the dra matic editor of this paper. Bob Hilliard has given up acting and gone into the stock broking business In New York. The boards lose a good actor, but Wall Street gains a good fellow. The wet season has played sad havoc with the summer parks, and managers who never in their lives were known to use profane language, have had to go into the swearing room. *. Lee Arthur has submitted to Klaw & Erlanger his first draft of the dramatic version of Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn," which, these gentlemen announce, promises a great play and production. May Yoye, the ex-Lady Hope, now Mrs. Strong, is in the country again, and as she has that one note in her voice packed in her trunk, may try vaudeville, if any of the managers want her, which is doubtful, May Robson, the comedienne, has been engaged as one of the principals of the support of Jerome Sykes in Harry B. Smith and Gus Kerker's new musical coin edy, "'The Billionaire," which Klaw & Erlanger will produce on a magnificent scale in October. Martin Harvey will produce in Dublin, Ireland, in September "The Children of Kings," with Ilumperdinck's music, which will be seen later in the fall in New York. Mr. Harvey and his company will sail for this country early in October to begin his American tour under the direction of Klaw & Erlanger. A Chicago museum manager says he tried to get up nerve enough to call on Mary Macl.ane while she was in that city, and make her an offer to try his house for a week, but couldn't do it. Now when one of these gentlemen let down on their cheek there must be a danger signal out somewhere. Maurice Barrymore was at one time leading man of Madame Modjeska, lie showed up one morning at rehearsal in a dress suit, evidently not having had time to go to his rooms to change since the breaking up of the evening festivities, The mamdame said in a severe tone: "Mr. Barrymore, I do not like my com pany to come to rehearsal in full evening dress." "Don't let a little thing like that bother you, madame," said Barry. "I sometimes like to act at rehearsal, and must be in costume." Had the Most Science. (Chicago Chronicle.) In responding to the toast "Science" at a banquet in New York recently President Pritchett of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology told this story: "In a Btoston school the other (lay a te'acher said to a small boy: '\11ho won the hattle of New Orleans?' "'\\\hy, Jim Corbett, of course,' was the answer. "H'ow did that happlen?' asked the teacher, thinkinig to set the boy right. "'lie won,' was the prompt reply, 'be. cause he had more science than the other guy.' " A Severe Test. (Chicago News.) "Johnl," said the alderman's wife, "didn't you tell me some time ago that your elec, tion was due to your personal magnet. isnl ?" "Yes, my dear," replied the unsuspicious head of the combination, "Well," continued the partner of his Joys and sorrows, "the carpets must be taken up tomorrow, and your magnetism will come in handy for drawing the tacks." No Cause for Alarm, (Chicago News.) They had occupied separate chairs in the parlor for some thirty-odd seconds with' out saying a word, when the fair one In the case felt called upon to say some. thing. "I have made up my mind to turn you down," she said. But the young man didn't even look a little bit alarmed. lHe knew she was addressing the gas.

The two persistent cottonwoods were first brought to the notice of the Inter Mountain by a touching incident. A Westsider who, in his childhood days frolicked upon the green and wandered In the sylvan glades of another atmos. phere, was the principal in the incident. While perigrinating in a general direc tion towards his ]xcelsior street home, this Btttc' suburbanite, filled to repletion With" joy juice, descried this pInimeval forest, as it appeared to hinim n the light of 'steen illuminating Martinis, and was knights of Montana will be there In force.

Current Book Chatter nd Quill Comment - Elision in Swear Words. A wrllknown American writer whose nalme is withheld thus expresses himself upon an interesting subject: "Of all the smug and hypocritical pretenses known to modern literature," says he, "the most nauseating to a normal mind is the elision of one letter from a cuss word on the pre text that the evil is thereby mitigated. The modern writer proceeds to swear in prinlt. lie looks at the word, bold and black on the page. 'iere, this won't do,' he says. 'Somebody might be offended.' So he cuts out a vowel, and goes on rejoicing in the consciousness that he's sterilized that setn tence.

The agitation amon g the operators lool. ing toward the formation of a strong na tional union of commercial and railroa.l telegraphers has been a source of much worry to the women telegrapihers. In the big strike which occurred several years ago none of theof the operators were iore loyal to the cause than the girls, anad none suffered so severely. The strike brought about- a classification and reduc tion in salaries until the operators were mnaking barely a living. All these facts were cited in the peti tion, it is said, to Miss Gould. One of the most powerful arguments used, it is said, was the recital of the responsi bilities and strain upon women holding important wires andl the number and char acter of the messages received and de livered hv them.
