THE QUEEN'S ROYAL ROBES
wsttT THEY LOOK LIKE—STRICTLY
HOME MADE
A Bllillil Descriptlen al the Attire la Which
La Fiesta's Oases Will Daizle ths Multl
•aie—What Her Majesty Has te Say-The
Meatfly et the Prime ninliter
Tha one absorbing topic of the day and
en that haa kept society and tbe general
public on the gui vive as to who waa the
sjiMcn.oaa submerged into the pleasant
leaHty that Mrs. Mark B. Lewis will fill the
exalted position, and if there be a "doubt
ing Thomas" among the populace as to how
ah* will look, or if there be a question aa
to a lack of royal splendor in the queenly
vestments, all dubious thoughts would be
dispelled by a peep into a spacious room
In tha rear of the home of the queen's pa
rents, where three women, under the di
rection of one of the leading modistes of
tha oity, are working with unceasing vigi
lance to complete robes of Buch magnifi
cence and beauty that they will stand in
favorable comparison with queens of for
eign climes, who have reigned longer, but
not so happily as will our Reina de la Fiesta,
whose one supreme injunction is to cast
dull oare away and let all pay homage with
happy hearts. Her majesty has guarded
the royal secret well as to her identity, and
it was not until publicly announced by the
committee would she give even the vaguest
idea of her connection with the coining fes
tivities, but when the cloak of mystery was
thrown aside and the command of secrecy
annulled, her maiesty has been most gra
cious in allowing the public a description
of her gowns. When seen yesterday at her
home the queen expressed her entire satis
faction in regard to all the arrangements
the committee had made anil the great
consideration they had shown in every de
tail for ber pleasure. She said she fully ap
preciated the honor that had been bestowed
npon her, and realiisd the mutual obliga
tions that were imposed in accepting the
position, and with becoming modesty ex
pressed a desire to reign with satisfaction
to all. An error that has annoyed
ber roynl highness and one "lie i ''»•
LA REInA DE LOS ANGELES
MRS. MARK B. LEWIS
airous of correcting is the statement I
that, her robes are coming from abroad-
Sbe said she "deemed it a duty |
as well as pleasure to extend her patron
age to home merchants and talent. La
Fiesta being strictly a local celebration,
then the money expended should be con
fined to our own city." So all the mate
rials have been bought here and will be I
fashioned into magnittcant creations by a
local modiste.
The two former queens were discussed |
and highly extolled by her gracious majesty |
for the dignity and grace of their reign,
but the queen who will take possession of
the city iv so short a time will be every inch
a queen, with her modest yet stately hear
ing, surrounded by her brilliant
ccurt. and appearing in robes of
such splendor that all will involun
tarily bow before such royal mag
nificence. Her majesty will appear before
the public six different times. Six white
steeds will draw her carriage. On all occa
sions she will be attended by her court and
prime minister, T. K. Gibbon, whose attire
of white satin antl (jolt! lace will be in keep
ing with the occasion. The first appear
ance of the queen will be at the pavilion on
Tuesday evening, when she will be form
ally presented with the keys of the city
over which she is to reign with absolute au
thority for four tlays. '
The gown to ba worn on this event is of
brocaded satin; Ihe ground work is pink
with a scattering of gold chrysanthemums.
Tbe court train, whicli is several yards
long, is of solid yellow bordered by «rmine
and held to the shoulders by jeweled
clasps. The decollete bodice will be
trimmed in jewels, and from the back will
rise a Marie Antoinette collar of gold late:
the elbow sleeves will be metwith long suede
gloves; a jeweled girdle will encircle the
waist and fall to the hum of the skirt. The
golden crown will complete the magnifi
cent appearance of a queen that the citi
aens of Los Augeies may justly feel proud
of.
Another work of art is a robe of heavy
white silk, through which is a dash of em
erald green and delicate pink, the green
predominating. The bodice of this is cut
high. Extending across the front of the
bodice is a diamond buckle and from each
aide are long tabs of emerald green velvet
that reach to the bottom of the skirt. The
court train is of emerald green, with a band
of ermine, and lined with pink brocaded
satin. The puffout sleeves with be banded
with jewels. The whole is enriched by a
handsome jeweled girdle.
For the sports at Athletic park a white
mousseline de soie over white satin will be
worn. Although this is the most simple of
the garments of the royal wardrobe, it is
most effectively cbic and has a dash about
it that is wonderfully fetching. The skirt
of this is walking length; just above the
knees is a band of Nile green roses; the
bodice is high and covered with a billowy
mass of lace; the sleeves are eibow length;
a Jeweled belt will confine the bodice at the
waist. This is the only gown with which
the crown is not worn, and in its place will
be a large picture hat of white lace and
Dresden chiffon, caught up at the side near
the back with clusters of Nile green roses,
and dotting the dainty capot will be glitter
ing jewels. A white silk parasol with a
C union of lace will shield the royal head
s tbe warm sun's rays.
Tbe splendor and grandeur of tbe ball
■own cannot be described, and only those
fortunate enough to see it when donned by
the radiant queen can realize tbe symposi
um of beauty produced by the ensemble.
White duohsss* satin is the material, and
ia fashioned on tbe Empress Josephine
style; th* front of the bodice will be ablaze
with jewels. The court train is of yellow
*atia, brscadsd In gold carnations. Jsw
ased clasps will secure it to the shoulder,
th* ilntm being elbow-length of the same
material aa the train, and held snugly at
tbe elbow with bands of jewels. The plain
severity of tha front of the skirt will be re
lieved by an immense gold butterfly, em
broidered near the edge and just a little to
one side of tbe front, tha jeweled girdle
will fall to the ham of the skirt, and a glit
tering crown of jewels will complete the
costume. A gown so gorgeous and a
woman so beautiful, will leave a lasting
impression on those wbo may have the
privilege of being present at tba ball that
promises to exceed anything over wit
nessed on the I'aclflo Coast. Vive la
Keina!

years to grown men. were on hand at 8
oclock iv the dressing raomi of the Y. M.
C. A. on Broadway and Second. Gymna
sium suits were donned by all and at 9
oclock the jolly crowd left the building for
the depot of the Pasadena cars on Fourth
I street. At the city limits the crowd left
j the cars and in single file started for
Devil's Gate, the goal of the walk. After
climbing lulls, wading, pushing brush
and walking tnrough orchards, the thirsty
crowd arrived at their destination. After

weary, but unanimous in their desire for
another trip in the near future.

TODAY'S EASTER SERVICES
THE GREAT CHURCH FESTIVAL WILL BE
GENERALLY OBSERVED
Elaborate riuslc and Beautiful Decoratlene at
the Catholic and Eolscopal Churchee—The
Maaenlc Service at Simpson Tabernacle
This Afternoon -A Day of Exultation
The great religious festival of the Chris
tian churches will be celebrated to-day
with becoming ceremony. Music of an
elaborate character will be a suecial fea
ture of the services, while many of the
Catholic and Episcopal churches have been
beautifully decorated. The musical pro
grams of the principal churches are given
in the musical column, and special efforts
have been made by thechoirmasters at tho
cathedral, St. Vincent's, St. Paul's, St.
John's, Christ Church, the Simpson taber
nacle, the First Methodist and other
churches to mane the music worthy of the
great occasion.
At the cathedral pontifical mass will be
said by Bishop Montgomery at 10:110 a.
in., and Professor Stamm has prepared a
beautiful musical service. There will he
the usual vespers at 7 :.W p. m. Father M.
McAuliffe will preach the sermon at the
morning service.
There will be five services at St. John's
Episcopal church—low celebration of the
holy communion at 7 and f) a. m., full
choral morning prayer, choral celebration
and sermon by the lit. Rev. Bishop John
ston at 10:110 a. m., and the usual evening
service. The church has been beautifully
decorated, and owing to Ihe limited accom
modations of the building, admission to
the morning service will be by ticket only.
The sermon in the morning at St. Paul's
church will be preached by the rector, the
Rev. John Gray, ana in the evening full
choral prayer will be sung and the confir
mation service held, the Rt. Key. Joseph
H.|Johnston, D.l>.,offleiating. J.C. Dunster,
the organist and choirmaster, has been at
particular pains to prepare fine musical
services.
Chriat Church, Episcopal, on the corner
or Flower and Pico streets, having been
handsomely decorated during the recent
enlargement, it wis deemed proper by the
committee in charge io concentrate in a
few places only the ornamentation for the
high festival of Easier day. The handi
work of the women of the church is rather
neat and tasteful than gaudy or over-elab
orate. As one enters the church the eye
rests upon the garlanding of the alcoves
with lilies, roses and other flowers flanking
it on either side. The large memorial win
dow in the west wall comes in for a large
share of attention. On the choir floor
large pyramidal baskets, trimmed with
smilax and holding large bunches of carna
tions, fresias and other choice flowers give
a beautiful effect to this part of the edifice.
To the right, on the wall space, is Been
baskets of marguerites, and on the left
vases of lilies hiding the organ from view.
Approaching the chancel, where the highest
act of Christian worship is rendered, the
grandeur of the decoration arrests atten
tion. The altar in the center is vested in
white, with rich gold embroidery. Above is
the burnished cross and tbe polished brass
vases, with choice white roses.
The dark red dorsal back of the altar has
received an elaborate network of tlower
decorations extending across the entire
width of the chancel. At the base of the
windows, for a space of twelve feet, rows
upon rows of lilies mark the dividing line
between tke reredos and upper wails of the
sacrariura. Tiie lilies rise until they meet,
and seem to blend with the elaborate Ve
netian-Gothic arabesque of the frescoed
wall. The sides are banked in great masses
of flowers, the color scheme heing entirely
white, forming a dado of exquisite pattern.
It is conceded that the church never looked
more attractive and inviting. The rector
of the parish. Key. Alfred S. Clark, will
preach the sermon, from the text. 11 Timo
-2:8: "Remember that Jesus Christ, of the
seed of David, was raised from the dead
according to my gospel." As usual, it
will be extemporaneous. Rev. W. D. IT.
Shearman of Monrovia has kindly con
sented to assist in die service. The church
will be free and open to all comers, no
change being made from the usual custom
of the parish. The two hundred additional
sittings will be none too much for the ex
pected congregation.
A special festival service will he held in
the evening for the children of the Sunday
school, with carols and addresses. The
classes, aB usual, will build up a floral ob
ject lesson in the presence of the congre
gation. There will be also a presentation
of a handsome silk banner. Mr. Win. B.
Shaw is the excellent superintendent. Ap
propriate Easter presents will he bestowed.
The Easter service at .St. Vincent's will
be very grand and imposing. The decora
tions of the sanctuary and altars have
been in the hands of the young ladies of
the parish, and will be very rich and bcau
tif til; rare flowers and golden candelahras

After Years of Patient Hope and Seeking.
John J. Morven Is Restored to
Health and Happiness
A Home Blighted by Disease—Where Teara
Fell Like Rain-A Pathetic Tale With
a Moral for Us All
Klght years ago I was a prosperous merchant at Springfield, Matt, I bad the resptct anil i
confidence ol every soul In that illustrious New England city. With a devoted wife and chil
dren about me, the world all seemed sunshine and everybody was my friend. During the
municipal campaign of 1858 1 worked day and night for the success of our mayoralty candi
date, and just as success rewarded our efforts I was taken down with "la grippe." Three
months later I left my bed a weak and broken man. The disease had left my liver and kidneys
in a terrible state, and my physicians ordered me into the mountains. Three months in the
Adirondacks found me even worse, aud I set out with my family for Florida. A winter at
Jacksonville seemed to improve me somewhat, but I was atlll an invalid, and all my other
organs began to share In my great debility,
'Jhe following winter I spent at Ashevllle, N. C., and my condition improved so much
that my friends advised me co return home and quietly pick up my business again.
It's a sad story—how I tried to regain my lost ground and found myself drifting month
after month into mv old helpless condition. Hope lied from our little home, and at last we
took up oar journey to Southern California to find whatever a merciful providence might tend.
"While there is life there la hope," and there was still a little spark of each left to guide me to
what proved my final rescue.
to persistent was my wife, who had heard from neighbors so mach about the rtmarkablo
cures made by the English and German Expert Specialists that I agreed to give medicine one
more chance.
The«e careful. Intelligent Specialists me thoroughly, and told me that my
chances for recovery were not encouraging. They made arrangements for me to go Into tho
foothills, where I would be above tne fogs and fronts, aud there began my restoration.
I have just completed my tenth month of treatment under these skillful specialists, and
today lam fuily recovered. No one who saw mo journeying over the desert a year ago would
believe I am that pale, worn invalid they helped out of the train at Los Angeles.
The sun shines on our little home again, and gratefully I recommend all sufferers to
these skillful Spec ialists, who have done so much for rce and mine.
