IN WOMAN'S WORLD
The
Smart
Set
romances, red, realistic and terrible, a story of intense pessimism. The early
Victorian gentleman bought it blindly, it seemed, for he' sent it to a young
friend with these lines:
"Oh may this book, in friendship given,
Bring happy hours to you
And lead your thoughts toward peace and heaven
And ail things bright and true."
They may serve for contrast in their amiable misapplication. For the
-in question were delightfully appropriate. It may have been the inspira
tion. That counts so much. Anyway, the nameless poet of Bohemia who
erected Raphael Weill returning wrote clever lines. They are sparkling
with jcu de mtta. \\ ho wrote them is a secret. It was not George Sterling,
whose at"' : !c<s iridescent. Nor Consul Merou. who writes in a lyric
-train ... was not Joe Redding, because he says so, and who it was only
Frank Unger and a few others know. The verses were hand printed on a
card, unsigned. An arti-t sketched the Lusitania on the broad Atlantic above
them, and below the Oakland followed by flying seagull?. Symbols of
return.
On the night of Raphael Weill's arrival they were placed beneath his
1-ortrait in the hall of the Bohemian club. There were speeches and toasts
for the wanderer home again. The Bohemian club may be said to merely
exist while he is away. When he returns it lives again. The chef is on his
mettle and the Red Room lights up. There are dinners for those who have
fasted. It was a certain gentleman of financial prominence who once said he
was always half starved while Raphael Weill was in Paris, because nobody
else in the club knew how to give a dinner.
So the event of Friday evening was one of importance in the club as
well as one of rare good will without, where an independent welcome was
gathered in the street. The verses expressed it. with a thought for Paris in
her bereavement:
"In the sad Rue de la Paix people rue and pay and say:
'Ah! such hole with him away. Ciel! Comprenez vous? Jamais!'
Tears denote Paris in pain. Fevered persons go in Seine;
Legion d'Honneur feels the loss—may confer the double cross!
Raph has gone.
"Market street uncurls its sprne; life once more flows down the line.
AH the Golden Gaited town seems somehow to slip its frown.
Why all this unwonted fuss.-' It is Weil! or woe wfth us..
Hear the owl hoot loud his joy: Welcome home. Eternal Boy!
Raph has come.''
Baroness Eloise de Rosenweig sailed
yesterday from N«w York for London
on the kronprin:': \Vilhelm and will be
abroad the greater part of the winter.

The latest news from Mr. and Mrs.
Andrew M. Moreland and their daugh
ters, the Misses Esther and ataxy More
land, is that the family will pass the
winter in Europe. They have been in
Newport and ir New York during the
summer. It was expected they would
return for the later season, but their
plans were changed.

WHEN a poet of no pretensions
—really an amateur poet—;
writes verses that scan well,
rhyme properly and convey a
graceful fancy cleverly expressed, they
ought to be recorded. The sort of
thing usually written for occasions by
well intentioned but uninspired friends
may be preserved in sentiment, but the
form is best forgotten.
They are not apropos, but the verses
written in a book by a recent poet of
early Victorian ideas recur. The book
was one of the -modern Russian:
The marriage of Miss Constance Mc-
Laren and Millen Griffith will take
place at 4 o'clock this afternoon in St.
Luke's Episcopal church in the pres
ence of several hundred friends. The
ceremony will performed by the
Rev. Edward Morgan.
A reception will follow for a limited
number of quests in the home of the
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Norman
McLaren.
The maid of honor will be Miss Dnra
Winn and the bridesmaids will be Miss
Mauricia Mintzer. Miss Isabel Beaver,

Mrs.JoseF.Borges
Long Hides
Marriage
Jose F. Forges, a photographer, of
2268. Mission street, member of the
Entre Nous cotillon and popular in
fraternal circles in the Mission, Is a
proud and happy bridegroom.
But- he is such a one as did not
believe in flamboyant promulgation of
the fact that he is a benedict and the
fortunate husband of the girl who as
Miss Ruth Reising has been one of
the belles of the Entre Nous coterie for
several seasons.
Until yesterday the pair kept quiet
the secret of a clandestine marriage in
Pan Rafael by Magistrate Magee, al
though their secret was guessed at by
many friends in the Mission.
"We wanted to keep our marriage a
secret for three months more." said
Borges yesterday; "but if it has to
become public, well, I suppose we must
accept the inevitable.''
So it became public.
WORKS I.\DER MAIDEN >AME
Mr,-. Borges is the daughter of
George Reising, a veteran employe of
the Southern Pacific company, but the
bride has not Mved at her parent home
_for some months. When she and
Borges became betrothed she went to
live with Mrs. Ida Borges. mother of
the photographer, in their home in
Mission street, and the marriage came
after the girl had taken up her abode
with the mother of her husband.
At the beginning of the Entre Nous
season, when the list of membership
was being prepared by Sanford Lewald.
the leader of that club, the girl was
entered as Miss Reising, and as the
name has not been altered in the club
list it was not known in the social
circle that the marriage had taken
place.
Mrs. Borges, moreover, to keep sus
picion from her marriage, retained her
position with Wells Fargo & Co., and
her coworkers little suspected that their
associate was a bride. There was no
ri<e sprinkled on her desk and no or
ange blossoms.
In the Mission District, where Borges
and his bride are both well known
among the youug people, it was under
stood generally that they were engaged,
and some acute friends hinted at a
marriage. itlowever, Borges main
tained an enigmatic front, let some be
lieve he was and others believe that
he was not married, and thus, by chang
ing his vocal delivery, he kept the Mis
sion guessing.
CONGRATULATIONS FROM FRIENDS
The guessers grew too accurate yes
terday. It was established that the
young photographer and the handsome
girl were married in San Rafael and
Borges knew that the time of denial
was past and the epoch of affirmation
had arrived.
So he and his bride prepared to re
ceive the congratulations of their
friends, however belated they might be.
Mrs. Borges is just 18 years old and
is one of the prettiest girls that have
contributed to the brightness and gay
cty of the Entre Nous dances. She was
as much surprised as her husband to
liarti that their secret had been dis
covered officially, but graciously ac
cepted the situation, and is now ready
openly to receive the good wishes of
her friends and to prepare to appear
as one of the Entre Nous matrons at
the winter season, instead of as a belle,
to which role the admiring young men
of the club had already assigned her.

Indefinite Bargains Make
Bad Friends
A FRIEND of mine who lives near the high school
has taken a little country girl into her family for
the school term. This girl is going to help her
with the children and the sewing in return for her board
and room.
My friend was telling me about this arrangement.
''How much time will she give you?"' I asked. "Oh, I
don't know." said the lady, airily; ''I suppose she will
help me whenever I need her."
Can't you sec trouble ahead for those two?
I C3n.
If there is anything on earth that makes for dis
satisfaction and misunderstandings any more surely than
an indefinite arrangement like that, an exchange in
which it is not nominated in the bond exactly what each
party gets, I have yet to find it. Usually one party is badly cheated and
invariably both parties think they are.
A young matron who was clever with hep- needle consented to help one
of her young girl friends with her trousseau if the latter would help her in
the care of her two children. The young mother was fond of sewing and
the young girl was fond of children, and both thought this would bring them
a pleasant change of occupation and would be an ideal arrangement. So it
might have been if they had made any definite contract. As it was. each
woman began to go to mutual t friends, complaining that she was giving at
least twice as much time as the other, and through the kind services of the
mutual friends in passing the word along, these two also no longer speak.
Of course, every one who enters into one of these indefinite arrange
ments thinks that between friends there is no need of a definite contract.
In reality, the closer the friendship, the greater the need of definiteness,
because the tie is too precious to risk breaking.
If you are going to make some exchange like thiss why not reduce the
services rendered to a common denominator of time or money value, and
then negotiate a fair exchange?
Believe me, you will run far less risk of heartburning and dissatisfaction
than if you contented yourself with some vague and indefinite arrangement.
OUTDOOR LIFE
TO CURE EVILS
The problems of recreational amuse
ment and supervision were presented
to the civic section of the California
club yesterday afternoon by James 15.
Rogers, secretary of the Recreation
league of San Francisco.
Rogers explained that the solution to
the recreation problem was th<* solu
tion to all social problems of the city
and made a strong plea to substitute
recreation grounds, parks and centers
lar the dance hall and the saloon.
In comparison to other countries.
Rogers said, Americans have ' less
healthy out of door sports, and that the
business which fills our lives has even
commercialized our amufcements.
He urged in particular that San
Franciscans study this phase of civic
endeavor.
