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

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

reputation as a clever architect, and

daughter of John Estcs Cook, who 'ias
to his credit a famous history of Vir
ginia, the delightful "Knights' of the

Glxyckn has taken olio of
the funny little Colonial cottages In
Tanzus Row, at' the precnbrlcr White

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
