"There is a belle gracing society at
present who enjoys tho distinction of not
only being the very prettiest of fair ones,
but the youngest. This winsome one is
Just E years old, and her name is Miss
Emeleen Bate Childs. She comes from
far-awaj' Los Angeles, Cal., and seldom
has a little lady created so much inter
est or admiration. Wherever she ap
pears, on the streets or in the drawing
room, adulation is hers. Emeleen is
tho blue-eyed, golden-haired little
daughter of Mrs. O. W. Childs, whom ev
ery one admired in Tennessee as Susanne
Bate, the youngest daughter of Senator
Bate. Mrs. Childs is the same charming
woman and with her constant little com
panion has been a most delightful acqui
sition to society. Mrs. Childs is a social
leader in her western home, which ex
tends her popularity now ail over the
country. Besides Emeleen's pretty
baby face, her frocks are the admiration
of the women. When she is calling she
ls attired in a white silk coat with a
very broad collar of ermine fur. From
under a Marie Antoinette poke bonnet
of white silk and ostrich plumes peeps
out the pretty face. She wears white
corduroy leggins and white kid gloves
and carries a very dear little muff of
ermine. Her shopping costume is equal
ly as attractive. The coat is golden
brown silk, with a broad collar of Honi
ton lace. The poke bonnet is of brown
velvet, trimmed in bows of blue ribbon.
Which match her eyes. With this she
wears a very handsome set of stone
martin furs, and a dress of white muil
nnd lace over blue silk."
