Compton, a prominent -Chicago pub lisher, put a quietus for the m ment on a constantly recurring rumor. Mtas Wilson and Miss Bones are the only members of the Presi dent's household who hae not availed themselves of the opportunity of being heroines of White House ro mances, and the public is loath to be lieve that they are going to let the chance slip' by entirely. As a matter of fact, while there was no astonishment at the rumor, nor yet at Its Immediate contradic tion, neither would there be any sur prise at an official announcement at any time. The denial of any engage ment means absolutely nothing except that it is not yet to be announced, even if true: and it may be remem bered that Eleanor Wilson's engage ment to Secretary JicAdqp was denied in an official statement signed by the White House social secretary and emanating from Mrs. Wilson twenty four hours or -less before it was offi cially announced. ..

Sullivan Loan Chatham For an Interesting Occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Mark O. Sullivan, of New Tork and Virginia recently loan ed Chatham, the historic estate over looking Fredericksburg, which is their home now for the greater part of the year, for a singularly interesting occa sion. This was the fiftieth wedding an niversary of Mr. and Mrs. Richard BI1 ton Lawson. ho until lately were own ers of another of the show places of the Old Dominion, Brookland: near War renton. I'll never forget the pilgrimage Evelyn and I made to Chatham with the UV11I vers and "the Major General" one mid summer morning last year. Unwarned of our coming, the Sulllvans were "from home"; but an amiable gentleman rated a caretaker, but perfectly qualified to ! be both curator and historian of the J magnificent old mansion and the treas- ' ures it contains, thon ed us about and 1 entertained us most amazingly.

The Junior Maury Doves hive It now Major Helberg was stationed, in Washington for several years, but was ordered away before the little house, in whose planning he took so much pleasure, was completed. He was on border duty for a while, and was or dered to Home as military attache to succeed Col. George M. Dunn, In Feb ruary, 1916.

She ought to make a strong candidate.
