H 16 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SUNDAY MORNING-, JULY 31, 1910. 1
I YOUR FIRST NAME I ITS ORIGIN AND THE FAMOUS FOLK WHO HAVE BORNE IT I Sophia, Sophy, Hugh, Hnco and ITu bert, names of wisdom mid thought, have' endured sinco tho da3'8 when Greek was tho language of early Chris tendom nnd tho Teuton nations were forming. Tho first Sophia was a Greek saint. "Sophia," or wisdom, says tho Greek rendering of T.lie book of Uccleshistcs, is the mother of faith and hopo and holy four; nnd probably, with this passage as foundation, there arose a traditional Santa Sophia, who had three daughters, nnd who was so greatly revorcd in tho east that the most beautiful church in Constantinople now a mosque was dedicated to her. The first Hugh was tho Teutonic ra ven Ihiginn, or thought, who sat on ono of tho shoulders of tho supreme god Odin, and with tho assistance of .an other raven, IMiumiin, on tho other shoulder, told Odin all that went on in tho world. The descendants or namesakes of tho wise and shadowy saint nnd the thoughtful - raven have been men and I women worthy such learned ancestors. Though some of them have not been especially noted for their wise and thoughtful lives, they have on the whole contributed much to the wisdom and learning of tho world. Among royal men of the namo Hugh Capet, who founded the Capctian dy nasty of kings in Prance almost a thousand years ago, holds high place. To bo sure, one of the early Capotian kings said that ho had grown gray while trying to capture a castlo with in sight; of Paris, his capital, and charged his son to finish tho co'nauest. But though their power was limited, and though tho kingship they adorned was at first hardlv more than a title, they were among the first' of tho long lino of kings who made France ono of the strongest and most interesting mon archies of later times. 1 Hugh of Avranchcs, Earl of Chester, nephew of William the Conqueror, who gave his uncle sixty ships to help in the taking of England in 30GG, was called Hugh the Fat because he had Fitch a big appetite. He was a great lover of sport, and among some of the people over whom ho had dominion, and who did not liko his savage and boister ous manners, it was said that Hugh ono night stabled his hounds in the church of St. Tyfrydog, in Wales, and the next morning found them all stark I mad. , Humnhrcy, "Duke of Gloucester, called Good Duke' Humphrey ho was really anything but good was the son of Kcnrv TV. of England, and was born in J301. His gracious manner and im pulsiveness made him very popular with liis friends. He used to ask any ono he found loitering in the neighborhood of St. Paul's cathedral, in which locality he lived, home to dinner. Henco the proverb. "To dine with Duke Hum phrey," which means to wait! about dinn'erlcss in hopo ,pf an invitation. In 1-43D Humphrey gave a hundred and twenty-nine books to Oxford, and later added others. And although he himself did net possess enough learning to make tho selection of tho books him self he left that t'o his physician his gift formed the foundation of tho great university's library, Thcro havo been royal Sophies, too. Several early empresses of the cast were named for tho popular saint. An other royal woman of the name was tho seventeenth margraving of Bayrcuth, whose philanthropic nature nnd literary efforts brought, her more than usual fame. Some of the hymns which she HUGH. -I' SOPHIA.

Goorgo I. of England was the sou of Sophia, granddaughter of James I., and married Sophia Dorothea, who diod in 172G. Sophia Charlotte, who died in 1705, was quoon of Prussia as tho wife of Frederick I., and she was especial ly noted for her t'asto for philosophy. Sophie Charlotte is tho wifo of the sec ond son of tho Gormnn kaiserj and Countess Sophie Clioick is tho wifo of tho heir presumptive to tho Austrian throne, and her marriage in 1900 to the Archduke' Francis Ferdinand brought! about his ronunciation of tho right of succession. There is a long list of famous So phios and Hughes who wero not born to the purple. Saint Hubert;, Bishop of Liege, who died in 727, is the traditional patron of hunters. Hugh do Lacy, murdered in 11SG, known as tho conqueror of Ire land, and Hugh O'Neill, Irish chieftain, who defeated tho English at Blackwa tcr in 109S, are two warrior heroes of tho name. Hugh of Evnsharn, English born, a famous physician, was in 1280 invited to Porno to be private physi cian lo tho pope, and later was made a cardinal. Hugh do Balshain, who died in 112S6, bishop of Ely, was the founder of the collegiate system at Cambridge university in England. Hugh Latimer, burned at the stake in 1555, is one of tho prominent' men of tho reformation in England. Hugh Willoughby, auothor Englishman, ex plored the frozen arctic in the same century. Hugo Grotius. born in 15S3, son of a Dutch tavern keeper, passed most ol his life in cxilo, but is known as tho founder of international law. Hubert Van Eyck, who died iu IHandors in 1-126, and Sophonisba Anguisciola. who died in Italy in G2G, and who made herself .blind from overwork, aro two painters of the name. Sophia Arnotilt, born in 1740, and taken to Paris by the princess of Mo den;!, who used to hear her singing at vespers in a little country town, was one of tho most popular French ar trcsses of her day, and know many of the great' men of tho revolution. So phia Germain, born in 177G, was a French mathematician so devoted to her work that during a three days' revolu tion in Paris sho calmly sat at homo and worked out a paper on tho curva ture of surfaces. Hugh Falconer, born in 1808, recommended tho introduction of tea into India, and thereby laid the foundation of an iminensoly "successful undertaking. Last of all, Hugo dc Yries, born in Holland, is ono of the most interesting scientists of the pres ent time. Perhaps tho most interesting of all 'men named Hugh is tho saint who was born in .1135, and who mingled with his scholarlinoss so much kindness and sympathy that ho was one of tho best loved men of his day in England, Ho was a Burgundiau monk, with a repu tation for oxocutivo anility. King John of England, who had founded a Carthusian monastery which was rapid ly fulling into deeuy, sont for the young Burgundiau, and gavo him charge of tho little monastery. Hugh Boon worked such wonders with its ruin and deso lation that, airainst his own wishes, he was elected Bishop of Lincoln. Hugh was fond of tho poor' of his neighborhood, and as aoon as ho was bishop lie. ordered many of tho deer that fed in his well filled park to bo killed nnd givon to tho poor for moat. At nnqthor time, he excommunicated tho chief forcstor for uukindnoss to the poor, and thon dared moot the wrathful, king, who took tho part of the forester. Hugh's posting and wit, fairness nnd honest' soon won the king back to his side. Tho bishop worked with unfailing diligence among the lepers, who at that time were espe cially abundant in East Anglia. Saint Hugh was fond of animals in snitc of his saerifee of tho deer to his poor friends' appetites. His pet was a swan, who know him and loved him. The most interesting Sophia lived somo timo later, about the year 1700, Site was sister of Charles "Vf., emperor of Gorman', and wifo of Prince Alexis, heir presumptive and nephew of Peter the Great of Russia. Sho was known as Sophia of Wolfenbutel, and sho was beautiful and good. But her marriage, a marriage of state, was uuhappj'. and Alexis used, Avith alarming frequency, to give poison to his young wife. So phia was as plucky as sho was charm ing, and as soon as sho understood flint her husband really intended to kill her with poison, sho lookod into the matter and provided herself with num berless nntidotqs. Once, however, Alexis had tho satis faction of success. Sophia was given up for dead, a funeral was held, tho courts of Europe went into mourning and Alexis was happv. But Sophia was only in a stupor, and when sho recov ered consciousness sho made her es cape, with the assistance of a waiting woman, and under the protection of an old German servant, who pretended to be bor father, went back to Paris. Sophia feared recognition, and finally sho and her adopted father went lo Louisiana. There she was happy. She lived simplv, surrounded by friends who loved her for hor beauty and hor goodness, safe from tho intrigues of the "Russian court. Before very long a Russian gentleman, namod Moldask, saw her, and remembered who sho was. Ho promised to keep her secret, and tho two became great friends. When news came from Russia that Aloxis was dead, Moldask realized that ho was in love with Sophia. He did not dare, however, offer himself to a royal princess, even if sho wero in disguise. But when the kind old Gorman father died, and Sophia had no ono to take care of her, Moldask asked her. first, to let him take her back to Russia, and, when she refused, to let him marry her. Sophia had learned to lovo her old friend, thev wero married, and spent the rest of their lives together hap pily.

Wire to The Tribune. , WASHINGTON, July 30. Washiug- f ton society is specializing. In this age of special activities oven tho functions of society aro not being overlooked. During tho past season ono of tho pro nounced chaugCB from traditional pro cedure was tho segregation of tho wom en from tho lower house coterio and their evident intention to mako their own sphere of influence apart from, that dominated by the higher of ficialdom. The Congressional club afforded an excel lent channel for this new stream to flow, and tho entertninments given there made a new epoch in local amenities. Not only did tho real leaders of the L'ongressioual club determine to bring 4.0 their aid' all the philosoph' implied in the conservation of forces, but they also set to work to discover the hidden talent an the club for tho purposes of entertainment and general improve ment. In Mrs, Patrick Francis Gill of St. Louis the entertainment conunitteo found an invaluable assistant. Mrs. Gill began to cultivate hor voice dur i ing her school days at tho Yisitation convent in St. Louia, und she has con tinued hor studies under tho best mas tors that tho Missouri metropolis af forded. For several years after her marriago she was principal soprano in the quartotto of tho Church of St. Aloy sius in St. Louis, l "Naturally, 1 am more interested in I, music than in anything else except my 3onicstic ties," said Mrs. Gill, "and X Have always realised that of all gifts to possess, a love for music and. even a moderate degree of talent is most com 1 pensating for .yourself and confers a I greater degree of pleasure on others.

Indeed, ono of the ,ioys 1 felt in living in Washington was to dis cover how many useful women exist among those who are known abroad as butterflies. In tho Congressional club there are so many flno musicians, wom en who have mastered tho divine art after years of patient study, who havo taught and given their services to choirs and to charitable objects, man', indeed, still continue to labor for love of tho art and for good causes when the neod of earning a living has passed away. The number of lino cooks among the women in officialdom should givo new heart to the pessimists who declare that homo keeping is passing out of exist ence among Amorican femininity. Many times during tho past winter a delicious supper would bo served at tho club, all tho work of tho mcmb'ers. Next winter wo intend to continue lo promote Wie culinary arts and to invito tho law makers of tho nation to bear witness that in their division of society, cooking is in its golden age, and is esteemed above all accomplishments." Society Is .Wondering. Society is wondering how much cro donco can bo put in tho report which came from London that tho engagement of Miss Kathoriuo "Elkins. daughter of Senator Elkins of West Virginia, and Lieutenant Billy Hitt, son of Congress man Hitt of Illinois, exists. According to the vaguo information which reaches me, tho engagement; will bo announced in this eity in October. I doubt it very much, but I doubt oven moro tho latter B:irt of tho report which sa3s that tho ukc of tho Abruzzi will be present at the ceremony. It is possible that tho Italian nobleman may bo in this coun try in Octobor and there is no denying tho fact that tho duko and Miss El'kius were interested in each other. How ever, tho prossuro brought to bear by the Italian count was sufficient to pre clude tho possibility of Miss Elkins joining the house of tho Abruzzis. Mrs. Elkins and Miss Elkins liavo been traveling abroad, as is thoir an nual custom. Senator Elkins has been flitting about in a special train spend ing somo timo at Hot Springs with Pres ident Oscar Murray of tho Baltimore & Ohio railroad, other time at Beverly and New York. Ltmdeen-Prichott Wedding. Miss Mario Lundccn and Lioutonant & E. Pritchott, TJ. S. N., will bo mar ried in Minneapolis August 4. Tho for mer has been greatly feted during her residence in San Francisco. Tho future home of the young couple will be at West Point, where Lieutenant Pritchett is an instructor. Tho wedding will take Elace at tho home of Mrs. Lundeen's rolher William Chandler Johnson, and about sixty guests will be present, in cluding relatives and intimato friends of tho family. Tho bride's gown will bo of whito panne cropo with a chiffon tunic embroidered in roses and trimmed with duchesso lace, and she will wear a long voil of tulle. Her sistor. Mrs. Harry Leo Steele, who, with Captain Steele, will attend from Fort Totton, N. Y., for tho occasion, will bo matron of honor, and her little daughtor, Loo Steele, is to be flower girl. The brido will aalso be attended by her cousin. Miss Hill, as bridesmaid. Miss Hill spent last winter as tho guest of Colonel and Mrs. Lundccn at the Presidio. Tho bridegroom's best man will bo Lieuten ant Bradshaw, retired. Lieutenant Prichctt has a largo family connection in California, where ho is related to the McAlIistors of San Ttnfnel, and to Mrs. Newlands, wife of Senator Nowlands. Taft Again at Beverly. President Taft is onco moro back at Beverly and tho Myopia golf links aro onco more the sccuo of presidential ac tivities. It is pretty safe and certain to say that, while President Taft was at Bar Harbor, he inspected carefully the placo which may, aftor this sum mer, bo tho site of tho summer capital. The golf links at Bar Harbor aro the finest in North America. Club Man Gets Job. When Mr. F. Oden Horstmanu of tho Metropolitan, Chevy Chaso and other fashionable clubs, wont to see his phy sician recently tho gravo und learned doctor niado a soarcTting examination of tho rich young society man. He might havo told Oden to go to Europo and build himself up; ho might havo sont him on a fishing trip to Bar Har bor or the Thousand Islands; ho might havo ordered him on o hiintmg trip into tho Rockies but he didn't do any of those things. In consequence of what he did order, Mr. llorstmann has secured for himself a steady ."job. Mr. Ilorst mann haB said good-bye to tho finely polished furnishings, tho soft carpets, the raro paintings, the whirring electric fans and other alluring paraphernalia thnt go with club life. lie is now a $3000 per annum clerk under tho district government. Tho young man, who had been suffering from that tired fooling called ennui about tho club, has ac cepted a job with the exorcise depart ment. His duties are those of an inspec tor of suloons. Ho is to boo that tho provisions of Dr. Wiloy's puro food act of Juno 30, 190G, arb faithfully ob served. ' Wedding Is Announced.
