Chairman (Somes Tru$
Miss Jane 'A. Delano Galls
T call myself tha hen.wlth S.&M chick
ma," Miss Jane A. pelano,-" chairman of
the national committee, on nursing serv-Ice-for
the American Red .Cross So
ciety, who made the recent appointment
of thf Washington nurses '.for service
- in Vgra. Cnfx., said, to me "yesterday.
"But seriously, now," she. continued.
"I fia eel as If- each -one of the.Ii.Q00
nursepl have'cnrolied'ln. the Red Cross
servleeuOhfe United States' was. my own
child. . I feel a, tender motherly' love . for
them, and a great sense of responsibility
for tbelr wen-being.
"I 'was terribly affected when I' said
good-by. to the three nurses last Sunday,
ard If anything should but there, now,"
she Interrupted herself. -"I will not let
myself Think that any harm could come
to those three noble girls."
"Do you fear their Injury In battle or
by the enemyr I asked her.
An Danicer from Bullets.
"No, It Is jiot that." she replied, kind
ly disregarding my . Ignorance. "Red
Cross .nurses usually are assigned to base
or evacuation hospitals when in the zone
of operation and there they are perfectly
safe, but the climate, of Mexico la very
treacherous and 'the only fear we have
Is that our nurses .may be taken with one
of the native fevers."
The three nurses who were dispatched
last Sunday. Miss Nannie Barclay Hardy,
Hiss .Lulu T. Lloyd,, and Miss Katherlne
Donnelly, had been under 'severe physi
cal treatment and had been vaccinated
and received anti-typhoid serum before
commissioned, accbraing to Miss Delano.
"We take every precaution possible to
prevent Illness of the nurses," she said,
"and before, they are sent out for work
they must have a physician's certificate
of good health."
Then Miss Delano told me much of in
terest about the American Red Cross So
ciety on which she believes the general
public is uninformed.
Paid liy Government.
"Contradictory to general belief, the
Red Cross Is a neutral society, meaning
that il it were necessary in the present
Mexican situation our nurses would give
their attention to the Mexican wounded
as well as to the American this they sig
nify by their flag, a white one showing
neutrality, with a red cross In the cen
ter Id designate theoc!ety." Miss De
lano' explained.
."A Red Cros 'nurse receives no allow
ance, from the society, as many -think.",
said Miss. Delano. "And when she Is
called into service under the Red Cross
her pay Is the same as that provided by
law to the Army Nurse Corps CO a
month in the United States and J60 else
where, with proper maintenance, travel
ing, and laundry expenses.
"I have thirty nurses In the District
who have, passed the requisite medical
examinations and are eligible in every
way to -go to Mexico. These can be sent
at a moment's notice from the War De

cles and branches which' keep lists of all
available nurses, whether enrolled In the
Red Cross or not," Miss Delano. added:
"Only a trained nurseican understand
what it would mean to go to Mexico at
thla time, and is it any wonder that I
love my 5.000 noble and unselfish 'chicks'
and am wounded deeply at the thought
of any possible barm coming to them?
Miss Delano, before she gave herself
wholly to the American Red Cross work,
which she does gratuitously, was-a prac
ticing trained nurse, having graduated
from Beileview Hospital, in New. York
"1 have always dreamed of a proper
nursing service lor our country," she
said, "and I am glad that I can lend my
services for it in the way that seems
most fitted for Its greatest, use."

This is owing chiefly to, the' fact thaf

DleUosi ifamllv knew of 'the attachment
between the .-American 'heiress, 'and, the
fifth son, of Prince RospiglioiL.
The announcement has also, caused a
number- of" young, sbblemen to cease, vis
iting the Grand Hotel, where Miss Stallo
has been staying; and leave for' the
Riviera awing to alleged sudden attacks
of 'Illness." ' . . ,
When Miss Stallo arrived at- the hotel
with tho Duchess of Torlbnla as her
chaperon,-, nobody suspected her" hand
was already- pledged to. the 'young son
of the commander of the- Papal loble
Guards. "

.Prince Carlo called, as did many, other
bachelor members -ot 'the fashionable" fox
hunting club, and all .wooed the Ameri

.It was particularly, noticed nthat Miss
Stallo was so cordial to alL that' nobody
could accuse her of showing any partial
ity In favor of Prince Rosplgllosl. The
bethrotbal was announced so unexpected
ly 'that local society folks are keenly
curious to know how It was brought
There Is no doubt, however, that the
Duchess of Torlonla is responsible for
endowing Rome with another charming
American hostess, destined by her wealth
and accomplishments to take a prominent
place In local society.
With the marriage of Miss Stallo to
Prince Carlo de Rosplgliosl. the family of
which Is one or the oldest Roman houses,
will hold the record for the largest num
ber of alliances with American women.
Miss Stallo will be the fourth American
to marry a RospIgllosL First was Miss
Mary Reid. the divorced wife, of CoL
ParkhUrst. ot Boston, who married the
late Prince Joseph RospIgllosL Miss
Ethel Bronson. of New York, next mar
ried Prince Globatta. and Miss Mildred
Haxeltine, also of New York, married
Prince Ludovico.
Of the three marriages only one so far
has proved successful that of Miss
Bronson to Prince Globatta.
Prince Joseph's marriage to Miss Reid
wss purely a love affair, but the dashing
American widow was never recognised as
Rosplgllosl princess, nor wss she ad
mitted to local society on account of her
divorce, which precluded a religious mar
riage with the prince.

Medievalism la by no means dead, but
sleepeth. And It Is not sleeping sq very
soundly In all quarters, at that. ,
Came 'to thla country not lone, ago one
William Caspar, whose' home post-office
address s Sofia, Bulgaria,, and his boss
is ho less a'personage than her majesty.
Queen. Eleanora of Bulgaria.
Medievalism has shown that It can
come back, and it Is coming back per
sonally conducted by William Caspar,
who has been commissioned by the Queen
.to arrange for her comfort, so far as her
stay in. the united elates is concerned.
So Mr. Caspar Is here medlevalllng
around as hard as he caru and from re
sults already apparent he Is .some me-dlevaller.
For from the time Mr. Caspar left the
boundaries of Bulgaria, he began to
make arrangements. He arranged for
every step his Queen should ' take be
tween Sofia and the Colden Gate and re
turn. Crossing Europe he arranged for
steamship accommodations. Tie landed
at New York and came to Philadelphia,
thence to Washington, making medieval
arrangements all along the line. He has
Instructed raaltres .dTiotel. porters, bell
hops, elevator striplings, and all manner
of other hotel attaches In their duties
when the Queen makes her appearance.
He haa consulted with railroad officials
and mayors of cities and towns, paving
the way for the Queen.
At Washington he has arranged for all
these things, and In addition, for the re
ception of the Queen at the White House.
This Is to be a gala event.
The Queen of Bulgaria Is coming to
this country for two reasons. She wishes
to spy out the land; to see the great.
American cities about which Arnold Ben
nett and some thousands of others have
told her by word of mouth and by print
ed page. She Is curious to know what
manner of people the Americans are. She
wants to Inspect the skyscrapers: she
wants to find out Just how hard the wind
blows around the Flatlron Building cor
ner In New York. She wants to know
why we think Niagara Falls so wonder
ful; she wants to see a real, live member
ot Congress; wants to taste a Lynn
Haven oyster, a Boston baked bean, i
Lake Michigan bluefish. a Rockford can

Georgia corn pone, and one or two other
Deeply gratful to a land which has
given generously of Its substance through
the medium of the American Red Cross
and by direct subscription. Queen Eels
nora desires personally to convey the
thanks or battle-scarred .Bulgaria for the
aid and comfort which citizens of the
United States have given it In the dark
est hours of Its existence.
It hss been some time since a royal
visitor has' come to' our shores for the
express pcrpose of visiting. The Duke
of Connaught was the last caller: Prince
Henry of Battenburg visited, this country
some years ago; and his perhaps was the
last purely social visit. In ISfiO the Prince
of Wales, afterward Edward VII of Eng
land, paid a social call to this country,
and In 1831 came the Spanish Princess
Eulalia. to visit the Columbian Exposi
tion at Chicago.

Is believed they will take a strong stand

brilliance, like royal lilies, now that the

With them Is usually a black belt, some
times a black bolero. Not Infrequently
the garniture of the robe is black passe

to buttons, display it in profusion.
The latest novelty In the form of a
complete costunie Is one composed of
striped crepon, with the stripes running
horizontally In the upper skirt anil ver

There Is a white linen vest with long
sleeves, the ends of which are- buttoned
and flounced. A black velvet ribbon is
tied In front, giving the impression of a

a long departure from those that we
