HAS TO WEAR KILTS
Scotch Costume All He Could Borrow—Liked It Very Much “TANGO BREAKFAST” THE LATEST CRAZE Introduced by Mrs. Cecil Bingham. King and Queen Make Few New Friends Unlike King Edward. News of Society By LADY MARY. London. November 29.—(Special.)—Miss Page tells of an amusing experience her father, the American ambassador, had in Scotland lately. It seems Mr. and Mrs. Page arrived at a country house to learn that their luggage, which had been sent on in advance, apparently had been lost During their long motor drive they were caught in a Scotch mist and were sat urated to the bone with damp. The host ess prompely offered the use of any gar ments in her wardrobe to the ambassa dor’s wife, but it so happened that the men, mostly guests, had with them only one set of evening clothes each and the host never wore anything when in the north but kilts. “A kilt is a fine garment,” said Dr. Page. “Cannot someone be so kind as to lend me one?” “You can have as many as you like,” replied the laird. It was then Mrs. Page chimed in and said the doctor, she was sure, would get his death of cold in a kilt. Everybody assured her that she was greatly mis taken and forthwith a magnificent kilt for evening wear was produced into which the ambassador changed and assured th<* company he never felt so free and easy in his iife and that if it were possible he would array himself in such a gar ment ever more. Lord Durham's Tragedy The King and Queen do not make many new friends; they stick to the old, un like King Edward, who was always ready to tack on an interesting fresh acquaint ance to his circle. Lord Durham, with whom the King and Queen will shortly be staying, Is a man with a tragically sad history. Almost since his marriage his wife has been an inmate of a pri vate asylum with never a hope of re covery. A terrible shock was, it appears, the cause of the calamity and from the very start it was realized she must go on enduring this living death. The story is so pathetic that it is never discussed. Lady Anne Lambton, Lord Durham’s youngest sister hut one—there are 12 of the family—is the "right hand’* and al ways acts as hostess for him. She has spent considerably over 20 years refusing men who have proposed to her. One great party who wooed I>ady Anne said, "You don’t mean to say you are going to be an old maid? Think well and realize the shame of such a posi tion." "Oh," replied Lady Anne, laughing, "didn’t you ever hear of St. Paul, who laid it down that those who marry do well but that those who don’t do better. And if it is a shame for a woman to lead her own life, I’m going t.o be that shame ful woman." Tango Breakfast (he Latest The latest craze is the tango breakfast. Introduced by Mrs. Cecil Bingham, who was Mrs. Samuel Sloane Chauncey; Indeed It may he said that it was Mrs. Bingham* who is responsible for bringing the tango Into the prominent position it now has In society. Before she danced 1t at her own hall last June people would have none of it: they declared it was fit only for a music hall. On the occasion mentioned she staggered the whole room by taking the floor with one of the professional dancers and trip ped it so gracefully that there was an ovation when she had finished and | the future of the Argentine movement was assured. Some of the big hos tesses said no power would induce them to allow It to he danced In their ballrooms. “Wait and see," said the Americans, "they will, as they always do follow us.’’ Sure enough they were right. The latest news is that sev eral of the American steps are being taught to Princess Mary and that the , Queen has fallen a victim of the “one” and "two-step” dances. After that one may expect the heavens to fall. It is no wonder it is rumored that we shall shortly hear of the tango being danced at Buckingham palace. primrose in America Nell Primrose, Lord Rosebery’s sec ond sen, is in America. -It is not, of course, his first trip to your side; in deed, he seems particularly fond of your climate—or is the attraction in another quarter? You will all like him when you get to know him, only, mind you, lik«* other Scotchmen, he does want knowing. Decidedly stand offish at first, when he likes people he soon enough thaws and his heart is most emphatically in the right place. A few days before his departure I was walking up Piccadilly behind him and noticed that he gave a coin to everv beggar on the way. They gave you the Impression that they all knew him and that it was by no means their first attempt at the game. He says his special object in going to the United States is to get an in sight into how things are done in edu cational and public institutions and incidentally to have a look at the girls, for it is high time he was settling down. He is extremely well off, for a wealthy relative on his mother’s side left brim some years ago a handsome fortune and a charming house in Great Stanhope street—the very one indeed that was in years gone by owned by “the Jtimes brothers,” as the late William James and his brother, Arthur, wealthy Americans, used to be defined Besides, his father, Lord Rosebery, is one of the riches peers whose already considerable well filled coffers were further replenished by a Rosebery. Is one of the richest peers of Lord Dalmeny, Neil Primrose and Lord Rosebery’s two daughters. A Misehievious Imp Mrs. Beatty, wife of Rear Admiral. Beatty, a daughter of the late Marshall Field, Sr., had an alarming experience lately when she entered the nursery and found her young Fon witli a pair of scis sors in his hand industriously cutting off j the baby’s curls. The culprit is one of I the prettiest children in society, but like j other daring imps of Ids age has de veloped a love of mischief. For the first time in his life he had a thrashing from bis mother. Having, however, a sailor for a father he has been always kept well under. Although Admiral Beatty adores the boy he has a thoroughly British idea of training children and has always kept him in control. He insists, “to spare the rod is to spoil the child,” an idea which, to his wife, is full of tyranny. When his father is away Master Beatty still drinks “to his mother's beautiful eyes,” a custom Admiral Beatty instituted | shortly after his marriage. On the even- ; ing, however, he had the whipping the youngster said, “If you don't mind, mother, I do not think I can make my j speech tonight. I feel rather too tired to make speeches, and think I'll go to bed.” “That’s a pity,” she replied, “but it I does not matter because your father is j coming home this evening and there’s a j ■peria 1 ice pudding.” j More Than Four Thousand Women’s Coats and Suits I j WILL SELL TOMORROW AT LESS THAN HALF THE MAKERS COST-MR.
