the unhappy marriage of Consuelo,
Duchess of Marlborough, daughter of
WUlic K. Vapderbilt and the woman
who Is now Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont.
The papers gave a page to the descrip
tion of the wedding. It was one of the
largest society events ever known In
the United States. Some of the head
lines read, "Hands Go With Hearts,"
and the orchestra played "Oh, Perfect
Love" during the ceremony.
When the sew American duchess
went for the first time to her new es
tate, the servants who had been in her
husband's family through years turned
out to give her. a hearty greeting. The
nobility of England received and loved
her. She was soon famous for her en
tertainment and her charities. But
-there was no denying It—her marriage
was not a success.
The duchess looked and was unhap
py. Her father tried to adjust the dif
ficulties of his daughter with her hus
band even while be was undergoing
difficulties with his wife which led
eventually to divorce. The king of
England is said to have tried! to bring
the two together. But It could not be
done. They are now living separately,
with the two children in the custody
of the duchess, except for a brief
period every year.
When her father married Mrs. Ruth
erford in London, after obtaining his
divorce more or less sensationally,
the duchesB attended the wedding,
kissed him and wished him happiness.
When her mother married Mr. Bel
mont, that most democratic of million,
aires, she did the same. Nobody
knows how she felt, however, while
they were getting their divorce.
Differences in Taste Striking.
Mrs. Vanderbilt waB originally Miss
Alva Smith of Alabama, and 8he was
of restless and ambltloiiiTnature. Her
husband's tastes were quiet. She said
to her friends that he was provincial.
This made some smile, since she came
from Mobile and he from New York
Mr. Belmont was of a temperament
different from Mr. Vanderbllt's. He
was vivacious and fond of pleasure.
A divorce from Mrs. Belmont, who
soon after became Mrs. George L.
Rives, seemed to depress him not at
all. He and Mrs. Vanderbilt became
warm friends and even confidants.
This was while the woman was still
married to Mr. Vanderbilt. He oblig
ingly went to Europe. He lived in
Paris the life of the fashionable bache
lor. He drove In his liveried carriage
with a woman of the demimonde.
"How unlike Willie K.," exclaimed his
wondering wife. Later she mentioned
the woman's name in her suit. After
that Mr. Vanderbilt dropped her, and
the world then knew what "the game"
Marie Vanderbilt Allen is said to
have been baptized at birth in her
mother's tears. It was not a good
omen. Her mother died of a broken
heart. She had several successors,
none of them happy women. Marie
grew up capricious, beautiful, fasci
nating as her father, and lacking tike
him character ballaw. Her marriage
with John Wllmerding was one of the
memorable weddings of Grace church
in New York, hut it did not hold long.
Her husband threw a plate of Ice
cream In her face In a burst of rage
against her for her airy behavior. Mrs.
Wllmerding for a time was kept in an
asylum. After that she led a gay life
In New York, and sank to the usual
sordid life of the unfortunate.
The marriage of young Elliott Shep
ard was one of the same sort. He
saw a pretty woman, fell in love with
her, married, repented, and was di
vorced. There are others—so many
that one cannot think of going into
their ramifications. Perhaps they have
no particular significance now. But
still they will rise to mind on such a
happy occasion as the one of few
weeks past, when the young heir to
all of this love and romance and
money runs away with a chauffeur. Is
all that has gone before In the way
of unhappy marriages In the Vander
bilt family but a mere foreshadowing
of what is yet to come? Maybe ,so—
and then maybe not. The only happy
marriages of the long history of the
family are those that have been
deemed unfortunate by the connection
at the time they have taken place.
The preparation of the bread is a
long and interesting part of the proc

reader will be to detect the joke, then

tons of sugar a year. Of this amount

tons produced at home. The home

the guise of "protecting" the American
sugar raiser the sugar consumers are
taxed about 250 million dollars a year.
Sugar is retailing at about $117 a ton.
We could buy the home product and
give It away, paying the price now ob

it away, and save 170 million dollars

Feeder Sheep and Lambs Are
GOOD MONEY IN 'PROSPECT
A Self-Evldent Proposition.
Good growing stock of any kind that
is selling below the cost of production
Is always a safe investment, if the
purchaser is prepared to take good
care of it.
He who buys and develops such
stock Is almost certain to make a
good profit in doing so, because pro
duction will not long continue at
loss, while consumption of staples
must go on steadily.
Not many others are buying such
stock, or else it would not be selling
so cheaply, and it follows logically
and consistently that when it has
been grown and finished for market,
there will then be a comparative
scarcity of such finished stock' and
such goofl prices will be realized for It
that a handsome profit will result from
This reasoning is self-evident, and
applies with especial emphasis to the
present situation in feeder sheep and
Last year's conditions are now re
versed. Then nearly everybody wa«
crazy to feed sheep and lambs, and
an immense number^were sold and
shipped to the country at about'the
highest prices on record. This to
gether with an enormous corn crop
of high feeding value, a world of
perfectly cured Voughage and a splen
did winter feeding season were fac
tors that combined to produce a heavy
supply of fat sheep and lambs for
market during the early part of this
year, while retailers of meats held
up prices to consumers, so that con
sumption was limited, with the nat
ural and logical result of low price*
and feeders' losses In most instances.
In consequence of last year** un
profitable experience and present
scarcity of grass and hay, most farm
ers and many professional feeders .of
sheep and lambs are now avoiding tba
market, and very few are being ship
ped to the country, while prices are
the lowest since 1904. In fact, feed
er sheep and laooibs are selling on tb«
market today for less than the cost of
These facts mean that early next
year there will be* a scarcity of fat
sheep and lambB at market, and.com
paratively high prices will prevail
Those who have the nerve to go cone
trary to the crowd and Invest in good,
thin but thrifty feeder sheep and
lambs at the present low price, will
have no cause to regret their enterpris
ing independence when they come to
market them in finished condition.
The concensus of. opinion of the
best minds 1q the trade Is that sine*
both prices for feeding stock and proa-.
pects for fat stock'are much better
than they were last year, therefore the
opportunities for profit are corre
spondingly better. In fact, the whole
situation is the reverse of last year.
Now is the time to buy, because
range conditions ere such that moa*
of the sheep and lambs will come to
market from the range regions ready
for slaughter, while fewer of the feed
er classes will be marketed during the
remainder of this year, and the supply
will not equal the probable Fall d»
mand, so that prices are likely to bt
materially higher In October and N»

PHYSICIAN SAID ECZEMA
CAME FROM TEETHING
"When my little girl was about eight
months old, she was taken with a very
irritating breaking out, which came od
her face, neck and back. When she
first came down with it, it came to
little watery-like festers under her
eyes, and on her chin, then after a few
days it would dry down in scaly, white
scabs. In the daytime she was Quito
worrysome and would dig and scratch
her face nearly all the time.
"I consulted our physician and
found she was suffering from eczema,
which he said came from her teething.
I used the ointment he gave me and
without any relief .at all. Then I
wrote for a book on Cutlcura, and pur
chased some Cutlcura Soap and Olnt*
ment at the drug store. I did as 1
found directions in the Cutlcura Book
let, and when she was one year old,
she was entirely cured. Now sbo la
three years and four months, and she
has never been troubled with eczema
since she was cured by the Cutl- Sp
cura Soap and Cutlcura Ointment.
