Every day some im posing home is dismantled of its'burglar hoards which ought to be useful to make up for their being so hideous and a. por tentious major domo occasionally takes an attitude somewhere on a lawn or in a doorway to give an eye to some lesser being who cuts grass and prunes vines that, human-like, arefso riotously given to going the way they should "not go. Peo ple whose two weeks' annual vacations come around as regular as pew rents and taxes "have gone and come back and the streets -are alive with men, women, and children on whose faces the country trip has asserted itself In its various phases of rounded cheeks, double chins, freckles, bright eyes, and tan. The President and Mrs. McKlnley have fixed upon the 10th of next month as the date of their departure for the West, and by the time they have returned society will be here In full force to welcome them home. Society, indeed, has an unusually good reason for hurrying home just now on account of the October weddings. very own. It is said that Its interior Is a duplicate of a certain medieval palace In Venice with modern improvements, of. course. Tapestried walls, llutod columns and antique atmosphere aA beautiful ad juncts to up-to-date domesticity, but If the tourists who have lodged In certain Venetian palaces -can be relied on, even the doges would have been heaps more comfortable if they could have had the benefit of plain American water spiggots, shower baths and gas. So, though no body has said a word 'about it in the pan egyrics over the new copy of the old pal ace, the modem improvements must bo understood.The,. draperies are to be. crimson velvet and cloth "of gold and .scattered around in artistic abandon will be other priceless fabrics also In crimson and gold. The bedrooms and boudoirs are in ebony and Ivory, and everywhere are quaint Venetian mirrors with gorgeous golden frames. Some one has suggested to "Mrs. Fish to give this Winter In this magnificent pal ace, the-cost of which is over $1,000,000, a fete like unto one of the Venetian nights. This would be a fancy dress ball which would far surpass The "Bradley-Martin af fair In extravagance, and New York is on the tiptoe of expectation as to whether this hope will be realized. If it were .not for rules there would be no exceptions, and exceptions are some times desirable things. It has been said that England's age-limit law, governing her foreign representatives, knows no modification, which makes it all the pleasanter to learn that the British for eign olfice has relaxed its rhadamanthan decree so far as to extend Sir Julian Pauqcefote's stay among us until next Spring. Perhaps that distinguished body may have been influenced by other and weightier considerations, but is looks like a special favor to the social world, for the- present British ambassador and his family are among the most popular mem bers of the diplomatic corps. The embassy, with its vast rooms and wide halls, i splendidly adapted for en tertaining, Lady Pauncefote and her handsome daughters are charming host esses and at no house in the whole social realm of the capital do they give more magnificent dinners and receptions, and such enjoyable balls. Sir Julian is thoroughly English in his love for walk ing, but for several years past has pre ferred to do his daily constitutionals on his tricycle. And very picturesque does the ambassador look on these occasions in his small clothes, top boots, short jack ets and derby. Sir Julian's study is a large airy room on the right of the grand entrance hall. It is furnished with substantial elegance and adorned with photographs of former ambassadors, which, framed and un framed, meet the eye at every turn. Over the mantel hangs a largb steel engraving of the queen in her robes of coronation. Lady Pauncefote was something of an invalid last Winter. Many of her social responsibilities devolved upon her eldest daughter, Miss Pauncefote, who presided over the embassy with the gracious hos pitality for which her mother has been famed. The Summer embassy,-at New London, will not be closed until the middle of next month, when the ambassador with his family and official household will re turn to Washington. Miss Skerrett, the daughter of the late Rear Admiral Joseph Skerrett, who is about to make her debut upon the New York stage, is rather petite, is below the medium height, with large gray eyes and brown hair. She has passed much of her life abroad, during her father's foreign cruises, is bright In conversation and tasteful in her dress. She has been popu lar in Washington society, the many ac quaintances of her father and mother, especially in army and navy circles, hav ing paid her much attention. Mr. and Mrs. F. 03.

Miss Emma Ordway, of Boston, is vis iting her sister, Mrs. Albert Ordway, at 1740 M Street. Miss Elfrieda Sellhausen has returned from Europe, where she has been study ing music for the past sixteen months. Dr. and Mrs. IT. H. Arnold liave taken possession of their new home, 1439 Stough ton Street. Dr. F. B. Loring is home from his Cana dian trip. Senator H. D. Money has returned from ,his Summer trip abroad. Announcement cards have been received of' the marriage of Mr. Herbert Bouton Lazell and Mrs. Nell Eveline Tompkins, which occurred Monday, September 5, at Ionia, Mich. Chief Engineer' and Mrs. David- Smith announce the engagement of their daugh ter, Helen Saunders, to Mr. Charles Hew itt Wright, of Plttsfield, Mass. The mar riage will take place In October. Ms-s. Agnes Capron, widow of Capt. Allyn Capron, Battery E, and her two boys. Paul and Webster, will reside per manently with Capt. Capron's mother, Mrs. Vinsen, at her home on Fort Myer Heights. There is a blessed theory that Provi dence never exacts suffering without be stowing strength to .endure, and it must be so, for it does not seem possible that mere human fortitude could enable even so brave a woman, as Mrs. Capron to bear the successive sacrifices that death has demanded of her -within the -past eighteen months. It is scarcely so long ago that her son, James Capron. who had enlisted in the infantry and successfully passed an examination for commission died at his post at Plattsburg, N. Y. He was twenty-one years old. Her gallant soldier son, Capt. Allyn Kissam Capron, has passed into history as the first officer of the regular army to fall In the war with Spain, and her husband was laid to rest at Arlington only a few days ago Mrs. Allyn Kibsam Capron, her daughter-in-law, who was at Fort Sill, Okla homa when she received intelligence of her young husband's death, is now at tho Washington Barracks, but has not as yet decided upon her plans for the future. Mrs. Vinsen, the venerable mother of Capt. Capron, Sr., has been an invalid for years, but apart from the natural prostration consequent upon such repeat ed shocks, is bearing up bravely as befits one who has the blood of Revolutionary heroes in her veins. The Capron family has figured promi nently in every war since the days of '7G. There was a Gen. Capron who fought un der Washington, and his sons to the pres ent generation have been identified with the American army. The Capron homestead is one of the most picturesque of the many handsome homes at Fort Myor, being separated from the straight walks and trim lawns by a winding bit of country road with golden rod and rosemary blooming along its cages. Though the marriage of Miss Grace Da vis and Mr. Arthur Lee was celebrated with simple impresslveness at a mountain chapel and in the presence of only rela tives and near friends, it is said that the bride's wedding gown was the hand somest ever imported to this country, with but one single exception. That was worn by Miss Anna Gould at her mar riage with the Count de Castellane. Mr. and Mrs. Lee are on their way to a cruise in Asiatic waters, and while on, their travels will visit Manila, China, and Japan. Lester M. del Garcia is a new society novelist, who is about to make his lit erary debut In a romance entitled "Two Washington Belles." A New York critic, in reviewing the book, says: "The story shows a careful study of Ouida, and has a trifle too much of the servant girl's ad miration for titles and high-sounding names. All the characters are painted in the most lurid colors, and all move on a top-lofty plane, and in a 'light that never was on sea or land."

Miss Mabel Wheat and Mr. George P. Vandergrift were married at the resi dence of Mr. E. M. Wheat, No. SIC E Street northeast, September 14, at S p. m. Rev. S. M. Hartsock performed the cere mony. Mr. S. M. Craft was best man and Miss Anne J. Branson was bridesmaid. The bride was very prettily attired In a gown of white with lace trimmings, and carried Bride roses. Miss Branson wore white over yellow and carried yellow roses. The wedding march from "Lohen grin" was sung by Misses Ella Lawren son and Emma Houchen. After refresh ments were served, Mr. and Mrs Vander- o...i. ol Posfoffice Box 503. Office Si9 Fourteenth St. Mr. and Mrs. George Winthrop Folsom, of New York, have within a few months announced the engagements of two daughters. The first was that of Miss Margaret Winthrop Folsom to C. Sidney Haight, son of Charles Coolidge' Haight, of New York. Recently the engagement of Miss Helen Stuyvesant Folsom, their oldest daughter, to the Rev. Churchill Satterlee, of Morganton, N. Y., has been made public. Mr. and Mrs. Folson lived abroad for several yeHrs prior to last Winter. The impression is that the Sat-terlee-Folsom wedding will not be long delayed and that it will be an event of the Lenox season. Bishop Henry Yates Satterlee, of Washington, will, of course, be called upon to perform the ceremony uniting Ills son and Miss Folsom. SOCIETY SECRETS often leak out The secret of the beauty of society ladles has leaked out. It has been given to the public by some of its own members. The Misses Bell, of 7S Fifth Avenue, New York City, have given to the general public not only the secret of modern feminine beauty, but have offered to all those who wish -to avail themselves of the opportunity, the means to become beautiful.

BON MARCHE, ' 3 $ ? THE MAGAZINE MANIA. Tlicy Accuiiiuliitt nml Arc Too Fn.s rluntiiiK' to Dixunrri. In these days of cheap and well-Illustrated magazines the soul of the good housewife is torn with conflicting emo tions. Her orderly instinct demands the removal of the dust-collecting piles of books that accumulate so rapidly and take up tho space so precious in most city apartments. She energetically goes to work and determines to dispose of every book before nightfall. The first one she picks up opens at a story she read some time ago. It appealed to her strangely, that story. She had reread it and dog eared the page. No; she won't throw that book away. She will put it aside to look over at her leisure. The next magazine bristles with pictures of famous buildings, palaces and cathedrals and schlosses" and chateaux, all of historic and poetic inter est. Now, if the good housewife may be said to have a fad outside of her kitchen and her drawing-room it Is a love of ar chitecture, of fine houses and stately buildings. She puts that magazine aside, too. The next one Is full of soldiers and sailors who have become famous of late; tho fourth blooms with stage beauties; tho fifth has exquisite reproductions of modern masterpieces oT French art, and a sixth has portraits of men whose books make up most Of th6 small talk of the day. The conscientious housewife sighs and gives up her idea of sending the magazines to the hospitals or the waste paper man. A week later the piles have grown high er and dustier and more unsightly than 'ever. The Illustrations grow more "keep able" every month, she thinks. One mag azine is publishing a series of articles on women artists, with pictures of their work, and another has started a round robin novel, the writers and the illus trators all being well known. She can not bring herself to throw these interest ing things away.- But the question of spaco is Important, and she yearns for an old-time attic and even considers the ad visability of taking a country house in order to be able to keep these magazines. But unless she has leisure and ingenuit she probably parts with them after all. One woman, whoso sprained ankle made her a prisoner for weeks, in that time evolved a most interesting and nove' library from old magazines, Each short story, illustrated article or clever essay she cut out, binding the pages neatly with the little wire clips used by bookbinders For each article she made a coyer of stout lfnen paper, fastening It at the back of the pages by a narrow ribbon laced through small holes. As she had time and talent, she painted little water-color sketches on the cover of each, to illustrate the titles, and these covers have heen as much ad mired as her library Itself. Of course, all the stories or articles or essajs she cluse to preserve In this pretty fashion were quite worthy of the attention. Many will probably never be published again, and she will thus have an Interesting well to dip into when the easily-bought things to read have become dry and tiresome. Another woman whose store of maga zines is out of all proportions to the size of her apartment has a frieze and a dado of pictures clipped from these weeklies and monthlies. The pictures are framed in narrow oak or cherry frames, with a wide white mat. Famous musicians are ranged over the piano, and Sardou, "Dau det. de Maupassant, Zola, Lotl, France. Mendes, Flammarion, Sarcey, Bourget," and other French writers of note are placed on either side and over the top of the low bookcase, where her French books are kept. A motley collection cf authors, from Marie Corelli to Thomas Hardy, cover the walls and the top of the hook shelves holding the other books, in a narrow frame, just the size to fit in the space beneath the mantelpiece she has placed her favorite actor, author, art ist, hero, and musician. These last five are photographs, but all the others were taken from American and English maga zines. The effect is very odd andi charm ing, and. as the occupant of the room says, it is quite impossible to be lonely wlth the companionship of so many clev er people. 200 Ladies' Grenadine and Brilliantine Skirts best make, well lined, worth -$2.00, QO. for J.
