Colonel Catron and son, Catron, and a nineteen-months-old babe sat 'round the garlanded parlor and hall, which were beautifully decorat ed in trailing arbutus and autumn leaves of red and gold, with palms and American beauties, forming a rich coloring for the background.

And mid this blending of age and youth the gay laugh and sbft strains of music were heard by the passer by until dusk bade us enter our car riages and depart, leaving behind a benediction ot peace for 1906. Ruth Wylie On Coronets and Such. Having had occasion to mention the nobility once or twice before, I am sure no polite reader will con sent that bis grace of Marlborough should push through his late notor iety, in company with the com moner class, without a word re garding himself. ' According to Mrs. Morley, a cele brated lady of ages past yclept Sarah Jennings., was married in 168J to Mr. John Churchill, after wards Duke of Marlborough. She wasappointei favorite lady to the bedchamber o Princess Anue, but withdrew in 1711. because her im perious temper was not induce ment sufficient ts retain her hus band in ,t h e good graces of succeeding ' royalty. "Place not your hope on woman." A sad epi taph for the noble house of Marl borough. Certain women are un certain, but be jests at bears wbo never had a coronet. John Churchill's father was the connecting tie between the present heads of the bouses of Marlbor ough and Churchill. Winston, Churchill, who ia so ignommiouslj mixed with the American novelist of similar name, is the son of his churn's wife. Socialistic Mrs. Corn wallis West, the widowed Lady Churchill, was at the beginning' Miss Jennie Jerome, ot New York. The present Duchess of Marlbor ough is also related by marriage to the Ducbea of Roxburge, Miss Mae Goelet before her marriage. Reports of the present Marlbor- oughian head neglectingh is vifeon account of her deafness sounds very undukely. The gentleman is hard to please. He refused to con template any matrimonial proposi tion this side of twenty-four mil lion, and now he is still objecting because the woman he promised to love and cherish is hard ot hearing. What a cause for snarls! The philosopher who sprung that an cient gag on us concerning the recommendation in a wife's being deaf and dumb, is evidently not in spiritual communion with the duke. Considering this British gentle man's late views on conjugal sin cerity and the feminine question, one would conjecture that he doe wrong in not accepting bis wife's malady as a dispensation of Provi dence. Pish, tush! And just as everyone was beginning to believe that they were out of the ordinary. Had we not come to tbe conclusion that Marlborough was a nobleman whose bored ennui would never be allowed to stand in the way of his comfortable ease? How could be so far forget his loyalty to Ameri can Coin! It is terrible to think of his anger as depicted by the Asso ciated Press via the New York Journal. Stirred by the notorious rudeness of that great artist, Sar gent, he had the pouts and refused to be civil for several days even unto his dog thereof. Did not Sar gent smear him in entirely as back ground for that famous Marlbor ough family group? Did not Sargent eclipse, pictorially, the noble head of that ancient house with the faithful representation of a swan-necked American Vander bilt with her two sons at her knee? And is it not Sargent who, try as he may, can but bring out chief virtues on his wondetful canvas. Alack! How sad for the domicile of Marlborough! The Duchess was under the tender care and guidance of her mother, Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont, of Newport, when last heard from, - and this causes a bunch of unnecessary conversation concerning mothers-in-law a la the Countess Castellane. Boni keeps his mother-in-law too much to him self, according to one definition of the verb. Anna, Countess de Cas tellane, always represented with eyebrows en evidence, is always undecided whether she is suffering from an overdose of mother-in-law or one of Boni. Tbe benefit of all tbe advertising of the matter, bow- ever, goes to Henry Woodruff (see Theater Magazine), he of the curly lips and hair. If Miss Gould's lik ing for the matinee hero had lasted only half as long as that of we playhouse fiends, then perhaps the Kuppenheimer looking .Tom Brown of Harvard" would be pres ent enjoying wild-wild-life-in-the-nor'-nor'-west, as our friend in Alice and tbe Eight Princesses re marks. However, there has been no one to build pink trinons for Woodruff, as there was for Boni in the days ot yore. Late develop ments from Paris correspondents speak highly of the hauteur of the countess and publishes her post card messages in full. In the ex citement, however, the indefati gable pen pusher has forgotten to inform us whether the postcards were picture postcards, and also as t o whether the count keeps a souvenir card album. If this is so, then no one can deny that the Countess is not fully justi fied in taking French leave. It is careless for the correspondent to have let such a weighty matter es cape notice. Heretofore, we have always put implicit confidence in the Associated Press and refused to believe that its penetrating pow ers could be equaled by anything greater than the posoffice.
