' Mrs. Gait As She Is Known In Washington With the announcement from the White House of the engagement of President Woodrow Wilson to Mrs. Norman Gait of Washington City. Mrs. Gait became the most talked of wo man In America. Every one In a posi tion to form an opinion expects the date of the wedding will take placo In November, rather than early In December, as has been mentioned in print. While Mrs. Gait has, since her resS | dence in Washington City, beon a mean ber of tho Episcopal church, and In recent years a pew-holder at St. Thom as's on Dupont Clrclo, she will, If tho President, so desires. It Is generally believed, be married by the simplest of Presbyterian ceremonies, and at tend tho President's Church, known as the Central Presbyterian, notwith standing Its present location on tho extreme northwest of tho fashlonablo resident district. Mrs. Gait's home. Just off Dupont Circle whole one of the most modost In that region, has for years been noted for Its charming appointments and homedlke atmosphere, Rays the New-York Times, adding: This qual ity mado n strong appeal to the Presi dent In the trying days of tho spring, when ho found in its dainty French drawing room a welcome rest from the cares of office and the lonoly grandeur of the White House. Miss Margaret Wilson and her cousin, Miss Helon Doodrow Bones, who has been practically mistress of tho White House slnco the illness and doath of Mrs. Wilson, have boon entertained J frequently In tho pretty home on 20th street. But rarely were other guests present, as, until the departure of the executive household for Cornish in the early summer, no member of tho Wil son family accepted any formal lnvl tlon. even- from tho closest of friends. Married 19 Years As Mfcss Edith Boiling: of Wythe vtlle, Va., a reigning belle, Mrs! "Gait j married her late husband 19 years ago. Mr. Norman Gait was at that i time associated with his father in the famous old firm of jewelers and sil versmiths. which has been one of the landmarks of Washington City for nearly a century. At the time of his death seven years ago he was the lending partner, while after his death the widow is said to have purchased tko interest of other membors of the family, and is now said to be the sole owner of the business. This Is now managed by one of Mrs. Gait's several brothers, and its disposition is one of the matters that may be ad justed before the marriage of its own er and the President. As the daughter of a loading law yer of her native country, tho Presi dent's fiancee was educated at tho best schools of that region and later attended the Martha Washington school at Abingdon. Va.. and finally the Powell college at Richmond. Many Relatives In Capital The mother, Mrs. William H. Boil ing. and one unmarried sister, Miss Bertha Boiling, have an apartment at the Cordova, on Florida Avenue, in "Washington City, where they now: re side during the winter. Other near relatives, all of whom are now living in Washington City, are Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Gait, the latter a sister of Mrs. Gait, and the former a cousin of her late husband. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wilmer Balling. Julia B. Boiling and John Randolph Boiling. Two other brothers are Rolfe E. Boiling of Panama, and Dr. William E. Boiling of Louisville. Mrs. Matthew H. Maury of Annlston. Ala., is a sister. A woman cheerful by nature, of keen mentality, fond of books, of mu sic. of the theatie. and even of base ball. she Is the ideal companion for a busy man of President Wilson's tastes, and admirably adapted to the difficult role of stepmother to grown daughters. Real Descendant of Pocahontas Coincident with the announcement of the engagement of Mrs. Gait and the ? President, came word from Rich mond that she Is ninth in descent from Pocahontas. Mrs. Gait was Miss Edith Boiling of Wythevllle, Va., and the Boilings are nearest of all to tho In dian maid, enveloped still, though three centuries have passed by the aura of romance. To mention the Boilings Is to bring to mind the words on an historian who saluted them as the "remnant of Imperial line," ev ery member of which had added dis tinction to his name. The son of Pocahontas, christened Thomas Rolfe. spent his earlier life In England, for It was the wish even of his grandfather, tho stern Powhat an, that the boy should stay thero un til he grew to manhood. The son of Pocahontas did not reach Virginia, In fact, until 1648. He was then 33 years of age. He married in Virginia Jane Proythress and to them was born on their estate Varina within a few miles of Richmond, a daughter, Jane, grand daughter of Pocohontas, who was to become the wife of tho founder of tho American house of Boiling. "It is here that the clock is turned backward for more than two centur ies," continues the Times. "The place Yorkshire. Know then, that early in the reigr. of Edward IV., there lived near Bradford. Robert Boiling, Esq., of Boiling Hall, who was greatly hon ored by his king. He died in 1485. ! There was later in London ono John Boiling, whose wife "was Mary Boil ing. So for centuries to come John Boiling and Robert Boiling were the names handed down from generation to generation. The Robert Boiling, with whom this account has to do, was born in York shire in 1645. and at the age of 15 be went to Virginia.

Robert Boiling had attained distinction and property and was suc cessful in many ontorprlaes To him : was born a son, John Boiling, in 1676, and at the same tlmo ho lost his wife. He married Mary Sttth for his : second wlfo and from this marrlge carao a lino of Boilings, entirely Eng lish, although in placoB there are mar riages of cousins and second cousins which draw to two lines more closely ' together. Tho direct line from Poca ' hontas Is from tho oldeBt son of Rob ert Boiling, tho founder, who appears In Virginia history as "Boiling, of Cobbs." A man of parts was ho. He managed his affairs with great prn : dence and gathered about him a largo estate. Ho was a firm supported of tho Established church, a member of tho house of burgesses, and a friend of law and order and yet he had that lovo of llfo which had for centuries has been a strong trait of the Boil ings. As one of tho esteemed chron lclors of the Old Dominion phrases It, he "partook freoly of all tho pleas ures of socloty for which his gay and lively spirit fitted him." Col. John Boiling married Mary Kennon, who had a grant of 50,000 acres from tho crown and lived at "Conjurers Neck." Thore was born to Col. Boiling a eon, John, who became MaJ. Boiling of Cobbs. Justice of peace, a member of the house of burgesses, county lieu tenant of Chesterfield, and command er of the militia. Ho marrlod Miss Elizabeth Blair, the daughter of Dr. Archibald Blair, and nleco of Dr. Jame Blair, who founded the College of Wil liam and Mary. Ono of his sons, Archibald Boiling, saccordlng to tho genealogists at Richmond, was the ancestor of Wil liam Holcomb Boiling, now Mrs. Nor man Gait and soon to be Mrs. Wood row Wilson. Geography of Balkans Serbia is facing: an Austro-Qorman ic invasion in the north, whllo the Bulgarian army is mobilized near the Eastern frontier. The Allied powers are landing troops at Salonlca, a port of Greece on the Aegean Sea, and hur rying them northward. The strategy of the theatened campaign may be found by a study of the map. Tho railroads are the determining factor, with Nish, in central Serbia at tho junction of the Oriental and Maaedon lan lines, as the probable storm cen ter. Ou the map modern Serbia looks like tho Stute of now Jersey, trending northwest and southeast. On the south. Greece separates it from the Aegan; on the west, Albania and Mon tenegro lie between it and' the Adriat ic. On the northwest the Drlna riv er and on tho north the Save and Danube separate itfrom AustriaHun gnry. On tho east is Bulgaria. This latter country extends east ward from Serbia to tho Black Sea. On tho north is Roumania. with tho Danube as Bulgaria's entire northern boundry except for the small Dobrud ja territory in the extreme northeast, which belongs to Roumania. Turkey is on the southeastern corner of Bul garia. Greece and a short coajit line of tho Aegaen eompleto its southern boundary. Near Serbia's northeastern tornor is the "Iron Gate," where the Danube breaks through the mountains which here range north and south. From the Danube theso mountains extend south through Serbia to tho Greek border, where, after curving to tho southeast, they reach tho Aegan and form a barrier between Bulgaria and Greece. Midway betweon the Danube and the mountain system forks a sec ond chain trending eaBt through Cen tral Bulgaria to the Black Sea. ThUB a mountain barrier Is ralsod between central Europe and the Turkish capi tal, notoriously difficult of passage. Nature, however, has laid out high ways to which all military movements must conform. Tho Morava river rises in southern Serbia, flows north and empties. Into the Danube near Belgrade, Serbia's capital. The Varna rises near the headwaters of the Morava, but flows southeasterly and empties into the Aegaen near Salonlca. Tho valleys of these two rivers form the highway between Salonlca and Belgrade. At Nish. on tho Morava In central Serbia, the tortuous mountains open Into another valley running neaily at right angles to tho Morava through central Bulkarla. It takes Sofia, Bul garia's capital, and follows tho Mar Itza valley east by way of Phllllpop olis to Adrianople. Hero tho river turns south, heading for the Ae?aen, but the way east is open to Constan tinople. A railroad which connects Constan tinople with central Europo follows thin Maritza valley. At Nlsh a line from Salonica connects it, from v.'hich point it follows the Morava salley j northward to Belgrade. These rail roads follow the overland rontes by I which Europo has always reached the Aegaen and tho Bosphorus, and by which Europe has also been invaded. It is on this line from Belgrade the Germans must drive to roach Constan tinople. The Allies would try to in tercept they before they reach Nish. Bularia would naturally attempt to cut the line from Salonica, by which sup plies and assistance would reach Ser bia. and at the same time keep the enomy from the main line running east from Nitih.
