THE WASHINGTON TIMES.1 SUNDAY; MARCH 2G7 1916.
S tjRAN ELlOTtS .. LETTER-' BU8AN DBAn: Juat nQW we're busy Tvandcrlnsc whether Col. Joseph T. Dick man will come to Kort Myer with the third squadron of the Second CaValry, which has been ordered here-lt ahoutil have gotten In thin morning, by the by, and probably' did. It all depends, of course, on 'whether the regimental headquarters will bo moved from Fort Ethan Allen, and tlila Is doubtful, Inasmuch ns the Fifth Cav alry Is officially only on temporary duty on the border, and Is still In per manent establishment at Fort Myer. However, at the post they are dis cussing the possibility of a change In this order, which would fneun that the families of tho various officers of the Fifth would have to give their quarters to allow the Second to move In. Would Meet Scant Approval. This would meet with scant approval in Washington, as glad as we'd all be to see the DIckmans back, and we're all hoping that tho Jaunt to the border IU continue to be "temporary duty." Colonel Dlckinan, who Is In command of the Second Cavalry, Is, of course, very well known here, and likewise his attractlvo family, for they were sta tioned here only a year or two ago. His daughter, Katherlne, who married I,teut. Harrison Knauss, of the navy, la still living here. The colonel "was one of the original members of tho general staff, and Is legarded In the army as one of the most distinguished officers In the ser vice, Several Well Known Here. In, any case, the arrival of tho third squadron Is of considerable -social in terest, as there are' a number of offi cer attached thereto whose faces are familiar here. Capt. J oaepli Horron, who commands Troop K. and will be at the head of -the squadron, If the regi mental headquarters remains "put" at Fort Ethan Allen, "was attached to the military Information division of the ad jutant general's department for several years before the formation of tho gen eral staff, and has hosts of friends In the.clty. Then there Is-Frank Andrews, one of the first lieutenants, who married Jean nette Allen, Colonel Allen's daughter I wonder If she will come with him to Washington? Other officers of the squadron are Capt. ifobert B. Powers, Caut. Edward L. King, and Capt. Jo seph A. Baer, besides Lleuts. Robert JIcC. Beck. Jr.; Oeorge H. Brett, Ed munds P. Duval, and Henry McE. Pen dleton. - Best Riding Instructor. The second squadron of the Second Cavalry was stationed at Fort Myer shortly after the Spanish war, and It was Troop F. under Capt. Lloyd Brett he's colonel now which first brought to perfection the exhibition drills in the riding hall, .which have become so cele brated. Colonel Brett, who Is now In charge of the Yellowstone Park reservation, Is rated the best riding Instructor In the cavlary, and certainly his troop .wax a crackerJacV. Indeed. I'm told that no Important new feature has been Introduced since his day. He used to go to cotillions and ballets for the express purpose of picking up new figures for his drills. Since the detachment of cavalry at Fort Sheridan has gone to the border wltb, the Fifth, and Lieut. Victor Whlt sldo with it. Mrs. Whltslde. I presume, will' stay on with tbc Iteesldes, and vrMI not Join her husband until things are more eettled. It's hard en her, for In spite of the uncertainty of their plans tho -was preparing to go out; to htm right away. A Brilliant House. Not since the gala performance of the opera at Stockholm during the Olympic games have T seen so brilliant a. house as came out for the first night of the "Bally Ituss." The King and Queen of Sweden were there that night, nearly four years ago, the house was packed with visiting roy altiesand American college boys and most of tho women were strung with Jewels from top to toe. It was all very gay, and I was glad enough to tako advantage of the con tinental fashion of standing up and turning my glasses upon the boxes and the people Sn the parquet. Then, too, there was the promenade between thu acts, and everybody prome naded, with the chance to see who was who and mott Important to a woman what thoy had on. At the Ballet Ilusse the promenading was confined to tho men. who did a bit of visiting from box to box, but I caught more than one opera glass turned on tho audience, and no wonder. The Jeweled headdresses worn by thoso who went on to the Russian ball cer tainly made tho audience worth looking at. There was a certain "flail" to the whole entertainment, and next to tho riot of color and grace on' the stage, I thing the tpectators,' enjoyed the visit of Mr. do Dlaghlleff and certain other dis tinguished foreigners to the Russian ambassador's box and the Impiesalve manner in which they kissed Madame Bakhniotcff's hand. Most Picturesque Figures. I never saw so many pretty women in Washlncton as were at the ball that night, and I wondered how much of It was due to the bccomlngness of the kakoshnlk, the charming Russian headdress. It made the. homely women look pret ty, and as for tho pretty ones they were ravlshlpg. Madame Gregory W1I enkln and her school girl daughter, OTga, In really truly court costumes, were decidedly the most picturesque figures In the picturesque gathering, and truly little Olga Is a beauty. Her "boyarln," tho headdress which Is worn by the llttlo Busslan princesses, of blue and pearls, was Intensely be coming. Moreover, was Immensely take. with her ar of perfect unconscious ness and urise as she sat In tho box nt the theater with the Ambassador and Madame L'akhmelerc. That few American, women know how to carry themselves on parade was painfully evident that evening when most of the handsome and bejewelcd women In the boxes wero slouching Eoandatot sly, Mrs, I.loyd Roweis was another shining exception, also young Mrs. Slater, who looked too lovely for waftfa, and Mrs. George Howard held A Chronicle g" zjoctety" Vmmm"immmmf,t7aF LJ J JMBWPt VUBw aiaw tV' ""'JKbbbbbbbbIbI bK. m bH LH AS a CuWnffl. b1 k id ft & .

WILLIAM BURR HARRISON and daughters, MARY BUTLER WASHINGTON HARRISON a( left, and SARAH POWELL HARRISON at right. herself very straight and with a good deal of dignity. Some Innovations. Xo lgn of host and hostess. This was the flrst Innovation of the Mann's dinner dance and then they began dan- 'clng before dinner! You see it was a masquerade party and to carry out the Idea there were no greetings. The guests as they ar rived simply Joined tho group of dancers, with Mr. nnd Mrs. Mann somehow among them. And then when It came to dine, places were found by number. It was so pretty to come up the stair way nnd find the .great hallway filled with a colorful group of merrymakers, some of them pretty, many of them amusing, and all with a touch of orig inality about their costumes. The house, too, was gay In its dress of spring flow ers, and there were two great tablea for the sixty guests. They danced before and after dinner and In between the courses oh, It was all great fun. May Adams, In a fetching black and white Pierrot costume, had everybody quite mystified, and somebody gave a fillip to the Interest In her identity by spreading the report that she was a Baltimore woman rich, beautiful, and twice divorced. It was only near tho end of the even ing that the others found out who she really wbb. nnd there was one veiled lady, an Indian princess, who retained her Incognita to the end. I think It was Mrs. Victor Blue, but nobody was quite sure. Come as Twin "Dinahs." Mrs. Theodore I!ald,win and Miss Judge came as twin "Dinahs," with their faceH blacked, and made u moHt Impressive entry, running across tho room nnd fcwlnglng their dusters. Then there was Mrs. Hampson Gary as a nt tie girl, her glorious hair hanging way below her wulst. Mrs. George Hunlop was also a llttlo Ktrl, and Mrs. Horace Weat:ott. a won derful "Sis Hopkins," her lovely red hair binlderi In tight braids ad wired, tf you pleas The hostess had n charm ing cosjume of vorl-colorcd chiffons. Let me pe who else was there: Well, the Richmond Nuvlses, Captain and Mis. Schlndel, Ridley McLean, Walter llflls you hnow tho crowd. It was a beautiful party anil a jolly parly, and all week 1 vo. boon hearing echoes of what m good lime everybody hnd. Fianclse Williams !b the happiest per aon I know. RlEht now sho Is rejoicing In the pcsscstiir.n of a smart Utile Cadlllai: loadfter. which her father gave her for a birthday present and which th drives herself with considerable as surance. To be sure, ho has driven her moth er's electric for yuus. so It was no task nt all to Ic.irn. Sho also Iisih a duudy mount, ho she spends most of her time saddle or n the open, either In the running her new car. except when sho was driving her spec tacular white roadster. Sho usually wears with It a small and decidedly chic hat of black and white leather. - -Bags, bags, bags, and then some more bags! And all for the Red Cross sale at Kausch6r'aon -.March 13. I, marvel at the beauty, the variety, yes. the. origi nality, or the collection which MlM lioardman and her able corns or as sistant have gathered together. One Jeweler from somewhere In New Kng land hps donated a number or dainty silver mesh bags, nnd there aw stun ning silk and cretonne beautleji from all over the country. No End of Novelties. Sewing bag's and traveling bags, the frllliest of opera bags and laundry bags whose every capacious like be speakH utility; quaint cretonne reti cules designed to be carried on the arm with summer frocks, and sand baga to hold open a door of all these there are s-tunnlng examples, while there are no end of novelties such as the stunning long cretonne cases to hold one's daintiest and most per ishable parasols. Truly the peep which I had of them the other day made my mouth water. An for the dances which are to be a feature of thevball In tho evening, they are shrouded with a delightful mystery. There's a "Bag Dance." with Gladys Ingalla and Frances Hoar as leaders! a divertissement dubbed "The Bag What's In It?" which Includes a pas eeul by Manuela de Penal a "Bag dad Dance." with Frances Hoar as solo dancer, assisted by Franclse Wil liams; Eleanora Morgan, Fiances Moore, Helen Wolcott. Elizabeth Harding, and Mrs. William A. Slater, Jr., and a "Bag Pipe Dance." by Kntn erlne McCllntock, Cora Barry. Caro line Ogden-Jones. and Mr.s N'ewbold Noyes. The only part of the program Into which the famous "bag does.not en ter In some way Is the "Minuet," which will be given by request. This will be tho same charming dance and by the same' graceful dancers that we sawat the B,eaux Arts. ball. Louise Delano, Grynga Raybaud, Carolyn Nash, Evelina Cleaves, Lieut. Edwin Watson, Morris Volck, Alva1 Bemhard, and Montgomery Angell. A Lion in Washington. fin promised the chance to meet up with a Hon one of these days, David l.ubln, founder of the International In stitute of Agriculture, who has been in Washington during the past week. The International Institute of Agrlcul tuie has a very Impressive sound, and 'it Is doing a very impressive work in tho world, but after all It's the man behind the woik who nppeals most to one's Interest. Let me tell you some thing about him. Mr. Lubln went to Cnlirornla soma forty-live years ago, starting with noth Ing, and Is a millionaire. But that's tho Leather Coats Herp. The smart leather coats which wo have been rcelng In the shop windows for somo ueeUs are coming to their own with the first breath of spring, nitd several Important personages among tho girls are standing sponsor for them, Only yesterday 1 met Boatrlce Clover, out for stroll, wearing a brown leather coat, with collar and cuffs of some checked wool in tones of brown and a short well cut skirt of the same .wool stuff. Margaret Kannestpck, ton, Is wearing a blown leather coat,-which has a lilt of beaver fur about the. collar and ciitr. The kind ol skill Hint goes with It I don't know, for I have never seen her wear tills very good-looking garment least interesting thing about him. He 'anw California trying to raise wheat and fruits and get them transported to the distant markets of the world, and saw the effort fall because the cost of tran sport was more than tho value of the crops would bear and leave a living price for the producer. Got the Idea First. lie started around the world to learn why It was, and his Investlgatlons-ln the wheat pit In Chicago, the Produce Exchange In New York, the worlds central grain market in Liverpool, con vinced him that there was something radically wrong with marketing systems. everybody knows that nowadays, but air. i.umn got the Idea flrst. iie ligured that a central bureau of "Kricuiiure.ana information, represent ing the whole world, would .stabilize prices and block, speculators from hoist ing them by reason of possessing ad vanced Information about crop condi tions. He tried to get the British, the American, the French, and other gov ernments to take up his idea, and failed. Xlien he went to Rome. The Italian historian. Ferrero, heard nis lecture aoout His plan; believed It was gbod:,lntroducd him to tho Italian prcmlolrwho In turn' took him to King Victor Emmaifuel. Mr. Lubln talked his big Idea right down the royal throat, to the horror or the attendants, who had never be fore seen an enthusiastic American saw the nlr and shake his finger-afterward his list-under a roynl nose. Royalty Backed Hint. The King decided that It was the real thing. He signed his royal name to a call that Italy issued to all ihe nations, asking, them to send delegates to Rome to stait the International In stitute Idea going. Most of .them fifty or more, I behove responded. The King donated one of his palaces at Rome to bo headnunrtem nt ti, in stltute. Now It s (Irmly established, is! iicok i.iS uni- uuy in oo a sort of International department of agriculture, and Is doing a wonderful work. The war, I am told, has Interfered somewhat, but after tho war there is going to be groater need than ever for sucn co-operation nnd co-ordination among the producing factors of the na tions; and the idea that Dav,i Lubln conceived In San Francisco and talked Into the willing brain of a democratic King, promises to be one of tho direct Ing forces ln the rehabilitation of the social and economic structures of the world when peuce comes back. - A Lovely Bride. Hpnry Holcombe positively radiated pride and contentment as he came down the ulslo of St. Thomas Church with his bride on his arm, and of a truth Dorothy Brooke made a lovely bride. Her color came and went so prettily, and, ln spite 'of the constant round of festivities (n her honor preceding tho wedding, she managed to look fresh .as a flower. Then, too, her veil with Its little cap of lace was most becomingly arranged, and I've seen more brides spoiled by their veils than I caro to men tion. Her bridesmaids ranged In size from wee Mary Irwin, Dorothy Adams, and Antoinette Hay, who are not much big ger, to Henry'a sister, Kugenla Hol combe, and Marie Peary, both tall girls, and were paired off quite beautirutly nil fame like" steps. Their pink frocks were monstrously becoming and, after all, there Is no color so satisfactory as pink for a wed ding. .5. Lieutenant Holcombe is fortunate Jn being stationed at the barracks, where the quarters are "ever o desirable. As second lieutenant he rates half a house only, but It's half a fine, large house, and everything Is most conveniently and charmingly arranged. Indeed, when her pretty things are Installed her wedding presents are love lyDorothy will have a charming nest In which to net up housekeeping. They probably will be stationed In Washing ton n-year longer, unless the engineers should be drawn Into the disturbance In Mexico, - "The Corps" at Reception. There was a liberal representation of "the corps" at the reception at the Washington piub, frdm Mrs. Marshall, wife of the former chief of engineers, and 'Colonel and Mrs. Walcutt to the bachelor officers on duty at the post. Moreove-. Jbere were enough ushers ln the wedding party for their brave uni forms fadd a picturesque and colorful toucb. U waa to one of these tall young meithat I neani an om lady say: -ahu to what branch of the acrvlce do you bt.ongV" Then, npyli-rHe famous castle of the Engineer Corps on his collac, "O yes, I see; a chapel. You're a chaplain In the army. Isn't that Interesting!" A flash of originality greeted me on my way down the receiving line, for to my perfectly banal remark about the pretty girls ln the wedding party, one of the ushers camo back with: "Ves, it makes me ambitious." His only trouble. It appeared, with so many charmers about was to know which way to direct his ambition. - Hnnna Taylor and her nance, Clay Bayly, were particularly Interested In all the details, for their marriage on May 8, at the Taylors home In O street, will also be followed by a reception at the Washington Club. There will be out a few guests for the ceremony, but ever so many more will be asked to the duo. It Is to be an evening welding, by tne way, and the reception will wind up with dancing. Fortunate in Weddinir Day. Margaretta Morse, whose marriage to Carlos Grevemberg. of New Orleans. followed tho day after Dorothy's, was I much more fortunate In her selection of a wedding day. Instead of angry skies and veritable thunder showers,' she had a lovely sun shiny afternoon, with the llrst hint o" spring In the air. Which made the ride out to Valley View Farm for the recep tion particularly pleasant. Margaretta was a sweet bride, so pret ay and Just a wee bit serious, and 1 fell In love with the brldemalds' frocks, pink taffeta, with such picturesque puffy skirts. There was an overdress of violet tulle In the front, which changed Its mind half way and disappeared In a cascade of frills down the side of the wee point ed train. Nannie Ryan was one of her sister's attendants, of course, and the other waa her cousin, Corbella Sharp, who Is by way or oeing a beauty. where Mr. Kccne had established n, reputation as a clever architect, and thoy havo made their homo In Twenty- first street In a dear little house which belongs to Mrs. William, Haywood. They arc ever so popular here. Mrs. Kccnc was a Staunton girl nnd n daughter of John Estcs Cook, who 'ias to his credit a famous history of Vir ginia, the delightful "Knights' of the dolden Horso Shoe." Glxyckn has taken olio of the funny little Colonial cottages In Tanzus Row, at' the precnbrlcr White Sjltphur Springs, for the month of April, nnd la expected to put In her ap pearance before very long. Miss Anno Morgan, with her fidus Achates, Miss Elslo DcWolf, nnd Mlsa Maude Wet more are among tho. interesting folk who are established at tho Greenbrier for tho spring, and Miss Morgan spends most or her time In the saddle. Also the Llttleflelds Pay Director nnd Mr. Charles Llttlefleld who spent tho winter at Palm Beach, aro to bo at tho White to remain until Easter. They will be at Bradley Villa, Manchestor- by-the-Sca, as usual during tho summer. "The Thing" to Lose a Gem. Actresses are no longer using thestory of lost Jewelry by way of advertising these days; they aro leaving It to so ciety folk. Particularly In summer tlmo Ifa "the thing'" to lose a gem or two, and Newport and Narragansett can scarcely get through a season without some spectacular Jewelry robberies. Comes now from Philadelphia word that Mrs. Oliver Eaton Cromwell, whoso younc husband has never quite gotten over" being a Washlngtontan, although he has lived ln Philadelphia since his mother became Mrs. E. T. Htotcsoury, Is out several thousand dollars' worth of gems. Wnen the to youngsters wero mar ried ln November, Mr. and Mrs. Stotcs- bury presented them with, their rest dence In Locust street, and Installed tho the furnishings. There they havo been making their home, nnd ft was on their return from the horticultural show the other day that they discovered Indica tions of the first disaster which has ever overtaken them. A Jewel case with a broken lock lay near the door, and a taking of stock dls ctosed the loss of a splendid solitaire diamond ring, valued at I3.UW; a llcxlblo gold bracelet set with diamonds, rings, bar pJns, a lovely diamond pendant, tho gift of Mrs. Stotesbury, end a number of lesser trinkets. Rather a startling loss. It would seem at llrst blush, for a young married couple Just starting out In life. .-.j.-White House Filled With Flowers. "How I do envy Mrs. Wilson." this ln a charming voice from a very pret ty woman at the last White House muslcale, nnd then "not for her place and position, but for her ability to keep her house always filled with flow ers." She voiced my thought exactly, fbr I -know of nothing that would give mo more pleasure than an opportunity to raid tho Whlto Houso conservatories. The state drawing rooms were abloom that evening and particularly lovesV wero the tall American Beauties lit tha East room and tho great sheaves off lilies In splendid contrast with th'u I crimson .walls of the red room. I must confess to a bit of a dlsanr polntment when I first looked at the program. I had Just come from hear Ing the Incomparable Gogorza with the Philadelphia orchestra, and the wish was father to the thought that tie might sing at tho White House. How ever, I soon discovered that I had a teal treat In store In my Introduction to tho two artists of the evening, Ver non Stiles, who possesses a fine robust tenor voice, and John Powell, pianist. "Powell a Talented Pianist. They are both comparatively unknown, but In the case of Mr. Powell It de velopsIn tho classic language of the "ad" that there's a reason. Ho Is a Richmond boy, the son of one of Mrs. Wilson's old school masters, and It may' bo that her wish to glvo him a bit of a boost for tho sake of auld larig syne had something to do with his se lection. He has been studying abroad. whero he mado his debut , nnd has played at several of tho European courts with notable success. Moreover, he plays thrllllngly. t Margaret Wilson camo In with Sena tor and Mrs Newlands and the three sat together by tho door Into the cor ridor, while Just outside gathered a lit tle group of late comers, among them the Mnrshalls end the Daniels. While naturally too well-bred to talk during the music, they wero apparently having a Jolly time, and managed to inject a deal of laughter and chatter Into the Intermissions. Miss Wilson and Secretary Daniels had a bit of a tilt and she went off highly amused at his sal lies. Mr. Daniels in Jolly Humor. Mr. Daniels pulled a long faco whlln we wero nil watting for our conveyances and grumbled that there was discrim ination 'against thoso who rode ln "chaises." "They make us carnage cempany wait," he said, "until all tho automobiles have gono by. It's llko the old story of tho stage driver who got stuck on a hill and commanded 'flrst class passengers to get out and walk, second class passengers push.' With that his number was called, so he gathered Mrs. Daniels under his wing and they departed posthaste, followed by a salvo of chuckles. The Frank Polks and their guests, Mr. and Mrs. Leopold Stpkowakl, formed one of the most Interesting groups of the evening and held converse with most of the notables present. They are a good-looking pair, tho Polks, he with a young faco which belles his gray hair, and she with a fluff, of blonde curies atop a face that Is both bright and pretty. She had on a pink and silver frock, with a' deep purple girdle (Continued on Pago Fourteen.) Keenes Popular Here.
