K. Vanderbilt and col man. The "poor little Red Cross nurse" was Miss Sally Hunter. daughter of a New York street car conductor. sine Wednesday, when the mar riage ceremony was performed at French Lick springs, she has been Mrs. Herbert M. Harriman. Let any novelist conjure a romance as "far-fetched" as this ene, which actually happened. Miss Hunter Is as pretty as any heroine that ever lived in printer's ink. She lived on New York's East Side. and never mingled with the smart set in which Harriman is a favorite son. The parents of Miss Hunter oc cupy an apartment one flight up at No. 78 East Ninety-sixth street. Sally's best friends, even her rela tives, refused to believe her when, last Tuesday, she announced that she was "going West to marry a millionaire." They didn't believe it, in fact. until it was exclusively announced in the New York American, not as a fact but as a prediction before the fact. Even then they were skepti cal.' Newspapers have been known to be wrong. WHAT HER MOTHER SAYS. But the marriage took place in French Lick Springs. The next step-if this were a novel instead of a fact-would have been stern ob jections from Mr. Harriman's blue blooded relatives. Nothing of the sort. The bridegroom received the best wishes of his kin. Immediately after the wedding Mrs. Oliver Har riman received the bride into her home and wished the pair every pos sible happiness. As for Sally's folks, they took the same stand. Discussing her daugh ter's marriage, Mrg, James Hunter said.

The marriage was a real love match, that had its inception in the war period. While at Camp Taylor as a major of field artillery Mr. Harriman became ill of influena. He was cared for In the post hos pital by Miss Hunter, who had joined the Army Red Cross as a nurse when the United States en tered the war. He got excellent care. Before he left the hospital he had proposed. And the poor little nurse. instead of accepting eagerly, hesitated. RENEWED HIS COURTSHIP. Mr. Harriman went abrjad, and when he returned he renewed his courtship. Sally wasn't dazzled by his Blue Book listing or his Brad street rating. She withheld a final answer. It is the way of woman. the novelists say. The wealthy suitor kept up a continuous bom bardment of letters, telegrams. letters, flowers and other gifts. It was only a week ago that Miss Hunter finally decided to may yes. And so they were married. Three days later. Mr. and Mrs. Harriman are spend ing a couple of weeks at French Lick Springs. Then will come the honeymoon that is dreamed of by many but realized by few-outside of the best sellers. The couple will tour the world. They will go first to Belfast, Mrs. Harriman's birth place, thence to Africa, and later to Japan. On the completion of the honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Harri man will live in New York city. To return to Sally's mother. After the wedding, she said: "Mr. Harriman has got a very good girl in Sally. My only hope is that he proves a good husband. Sally, of course, has never been ac customed to automobiles, but I guess she'll learn. She hasn't cared much for society people, but those who have met her have been very kind." BRIDE AN4 IRISH REALTY. The new Mrs. Harriman is of an Irish type of beauty. She was born in Belfast twenty-nine years ago and came to this country at the age of sixteen. She arrived here with her sister, Annabelle, and later the whole family came along. Her father. James Hunter, conducted an under taking establishment in Belfast. When he arrived in this country he became a car starter for the Metro politan Railway Company. Two brothers and two sisters complete the family. The present Mrs. Harriman is the third wife of the financier. The first Mrs. Harriman, divorced him in 1906. and he was divorced by his second wife last March. The first Mrs. Harriman was Miss Isabelle Hunnewell. of Boston. The second was a daughter of Justice John R. Brady. JN BY P preter, and he looked hard at Mrs. Neale. "Who is Mary?" asked Mrs. Wor rall. "Why. Mary Willcock., who was my servant and left me about a year ago," answered Mrs. Neale. "I'm positive that that is her." "You must be mistaken. She can't speak a word of English. She's a princess from the East, and has told the sailor by her side, who speaks her language, that she was kidnaped by pirates and brought to England. She is the Princess Cara boo, of royal blood." Mr.- Worrall felt certain that Mrs. Neale had made a mistake, but Mrs. Nealo was equally poitive, and she was so cIrcumstantial in her description of Mary Sillcocks and how exactly it tallied with the Prin cess Caraboo that other people be gan to get suspicious and several efforts were made to trap her into admitting that she was an imposter, but without success. It was quite by accident, indeed, that one of the most amazing im postures of modern times was ex posed and the Prinoess Caraboo found to be nothing more than a remarkably clever Devonshire girl in search of notoriety. Her exposure came about as follows: EXPOSURE. One day a very famous linguist, hearing of the remarkable appear ance of the P'rin'ess Caraboo and the strange tongue in which sho spoke. and which nobody under stood, paid a visit to Knole IBall with several friends. As with every body else who had tried, he was unable to make himself understood, nor could ho understand the strange language in which the prin cess spoke. lie offered her an Ori ental manuscript written in one of the Indian dialects. thinkitig p.er haps she might he able to read it. though he hImself could not speak it. i soihet h ea THE WON TO I Virgini S CENE-The Annapos elewi care one early morning reoent ly.

For the Midshipmen were bound for the harbor of the Academy. They had been on a cruise across the pond, spent' the day in Africa, walked on the Rock of Gibraltar, danced with the Queen of Norway. And they had a great time at the British ambassador's reception in Christiani-at least according to the story told by a Middy-whose fre quent "you all's betrayed his Vir ginia origin-to a mere citisen who happened to be penned in the same seat. ."You see when the fleet anchored in Christiani we were much feted. and among the entertainments gfr en us was a reception and ball at the British embassy. Well, we fel lows all arrived on time and as we filed into the hall, we saw a pom pous-looking guy standing at one side. One of the fellows started to shake hands with him, but a boy behind whispered "For the love of Mike, don't-that's only the butler." So we Middles went proudly by giv ing a passing glance at the impos ing-looking personage who appeared to think that he was the whole works, anyway. "After while we formed to be pre sented to the ambassador and when we reached his presence we found we had another think coming-" And the Middy paused. "Why, what was the trouble?" asked the mere cit. "Trouble," howled the Middy as he kicked another boy in the shin. "Oh, nuthin' much-only the man we took for the butler was the am bassador himself' e e " IT sounds too good to be true but it is true. And it happened a few months ago in a little Greek restaurant near the State Depart ment, a cafe where the French dish es are served by an African waiter and the cashier hails from Austria. Two ladies, one of them married, entered the room. Just as they were about to take their seats one of the waiters, glancing in their direction, bawled out through the small aper ture which opens into the kitchen's dark and mysterious caverns, "Two old maids." Both ladies flushed with indigna tion. They beckoned to the pro prietor, who came bowing to listen to a tirade against such treatment.

"That language, like Hebrew," said the lInguist quietly to his friend, "is read from right to left, not left to right, as in English." A few minutes atterwards the fInger of the Princess Caraboo was tracing the manuscript irom left to right, showing that she had over heard the words spoken in English and understood them. From that time she was treated as an imposter, and a few days afterwards she confessed that the whose story had been made up by her and the Portuguese sailor, who had gr-omptly dIsappeared when he saw that the imposture was discov ered. CONFESSION. Hpr confession, given in the broad est West Country accent, revealed the fact that she had been born at Witheridge, a little village in Devon shire, and was the second child of Thomas Willcocks, a cobbler there. She was only twenty-five when she deceived thousands of people by her remarkable story and the way she acted it. but in those twenty-five years she had managed to crowd more experience of life than moet gIrls get. When she was old enough to leave school she became a servant, but she left sItuation after situation be cause she found them so dull, and her mistresses found that they could never rely on her.

"That waiter isn't talking abort you at all, Madam," he gasped, "He is just ordering two cold teas." THERE is one fashionable doeter In town who is persona non grata at the home of one of his wealthy patients and it all came about by the sad fate of the familys pst poodle. The patient-a lady-was as ft as she was rich and her case was quite a lucrative one. Her interest in life outside of herself was an ugly, spiteful poodle, whose lack ed intelligence was only equalled by that of his mistress. One morning when the doctor had just ad ministered a bread-pill and was walk ing quickly down the stately stair way, he stepped forward toward the gorgeous leopard rug which graced the hall. But he never reached it. As his foot was about to descend, the poodle ran beneath him. It was too late to stop-the doctor plunged forward and sat down heavily, his 200 pounds landing with a squash on the top of pet, and when he scrambled to his feet he saw that the dog was mashed as flat as the rug. lie did not stand upon the order of his going.

After she had left Mrs. Neale she went to London, and there became mixed up with sailor., one of whom she married after her imposture. Among the sailors she knew and be came very friendly with was one named Baker who had been on sew eral voyages round the world, and who fascinated her with the stories of his adventures in foreign lands, adventuree which not only had the merit of being to a great extent true, but fired her imagination, so much that she made up her mind to outdo them somehow or other. END OF PLOT. From this sailor Baker she learnt the rudiments of the Malay lan guage, as well as many of the eus toms of the natives, and with him she conceived the scheme of becom ing the Princess Caraboo. The two hatched full details, and when 'the Princess becnme accepted by all the wealthy familieos in GIloucestershire, Baker, posing as a Portuguese sailor, turned up and translated the story as arranged' This knowledge of Malay and the customs of the natIves explained many things which puzaled people who had comec to sen her, and who had been In the East.
