Rich society women of Newport have been robbed this season of enormous sums in money and jewels—the case of Mrs. Goelet being conspicuous.
It is suspected that the robberies were committed by some woman thief who moves in the highest society
Her Husband Never Understands Her

Villain, Who Disappears When
Troubles Loom on the Horizon
It would be pleasant once in a while
:to read; a novel which • had: an ; unmar
ried woman ; for a ; heroine, who fell in
love in the old-fashioned manner and
the end of .the v story a r normal one,
with '"■ "bless you, my " children," at i the
"finish. ;;. f But * that is v out ?of date, ', and
: the modern "novel^begins' where the
old-fashioned one v left v off, and we fol
low _ the heroine j through love affairs
which should \t neverj^be^ and which
usually •" end vaguely or with a recon
ciliation vto £ her long-suffering p hus- ;
band. The .. heroine of ; the ; up-to-date
novel has not i much 'to' do but analyze
her own ■ emotions, which she does [on
every page of a long drawn out story.
She '=. studies . her husband's moods and
discovers in the second chapter that ;he
can . never, ; never understand her. For
1 the ; modem T heroine is . complex, and :
she ' takes herself , very seriously. She
rgardai ; dear John as ' very good, and
oh, ;; so well : meaning, but of course".he.
;, could ; not be expected Jto appreciate so

goodness gets more and more upon her

Everything is going beautifully, and
John is oblivious of the heart-hunger

That 1830 fashions are still in
vogue is demonstrated by many of tho
new autumn models which are mad*
with the long sloping shoulder seam,
: flaring sleeve and full skirt with which
we are familiar. Novel arrangementi
■of trimmings distinguish the latest im
portations from the late spring frocks*
I but jinlo th er ways they are very simi
'i lar. One particularly smart and ~i
Frenchy gown seen \is illustrated.
It is of a plum colored eolienne
over taffeta- of same shade and is
made with ;av fift^nYgb'redJ skirt shirred
over heavy cords at the top to form a
deep, round hip yoke and finished
the bottom with three deep tucks. The
coat bodice is made with' triple shir
ring over cords ? that 'start at the belt
in front, spread out over the shoulders
■ and^foini '*■$& round yqke the back,
t*us giving- the much desired broad
ness to the shoulders. There is a nar-
vest of heavy point de yeniaeJac*.
to the front and stands by when
trouble looms on the horizon. The
affinity usually has business in some
other locality and dissolves into thin
air when things go'wrong, the heroine
drops down to earth with a dull thud
and discovers that John may be a lit
tle plain and" crude, but is an ever
present help in time of trouble.
Then the story ends with the heroine
falling upon the neck of dear John
and wondering how she could ever
have thought that "horrid thing" her
affinity. This sort of thing Is repeated
ad nauseum, with variations, in mod
ern novels, and the book which con
cerns young girls is now relegated to
and a round flat collar of cream-color
ed cloth elaborately embroidered with
black and the lovely new tint of orange
silk and under this is drawn a net
scarf with point de vehise ends. The
stock and undersleeves are of a lighter
plum-colored silk and the elbow
sleeves are finished with wide turned
back cuffs of cream cloth embroidered
to match the collar. Large marigolds
of this new tone of orange, which }s a
shade between bright and burnt
orange, are used to wreath the wide
brimmed hat which accompanies this
costume, and over them is draped a
line black chantilly lace veil with ends
in the back. Orange shades, used
sparingly on both and hats, wllj
undoubtedly be immensely popular this
autumn and already there may be
found at the exclusive shops large
buttonsr narrow bands, etc., beautifully
embroidered in orange arid black silk J
which as trimmings for black cloth
suits will be extremely smart.

A very pretty military wedding took
place in the post chapel on Thursday
evening, when Dr. Samuel Hussey, den
tal surgeon, U. S. A., and Miss Eliza
beth Lugg, of Berkeley, Cal., were
married. The chapel was tastefully
decorated with golden rod and autumn
leaves. Music was rendered by the
Twenty-first infantry orchestra. The
bride was given away by Maj. E. B.
Frick, and Lieut. Joseph Ware was
best man. The bride wore a gown of
white crepe de chene and a large white
picture hat. Chaplain James Osser
waarde, of the Twenty-first infantry,
read the mawfage service and Chap
lain Dallam, of the Twenty-eighth,
gave the blessing. Following the cere
mony a reception was given in the
post hall, wh'ch was decorated with
golden rod, autumn leaves and flags.
All the officers of the garrison at
tended in dress uniform. Dr. and Mrs.
Hussey left for Ohio and will be at

The domestic troubles of a Meadow
Brook colony couple, young in experience
If not in years, have reached a climax.
I am told they are^ living apart. Balti
more, where they were married four
years ago last December, has been as
much interested in the career of this
couple as Meadow Brook, New York and
Newport. He comes of a poor branch
of a well-known Hobdken family, and his
richer cousins have willingly added to
his small income. Madame's fortune is
not much larger than his, but the two
have-managed to keep their heads above
the surface at Meadow Brook and she
has been well supplied with barbaric
looking gowns that suit her brunette type
of beauty. The cause of the trouble is
not so much the absence of the necessary
wherewithal to keep up the pace as the
interest of a young married man of the
Meadow Brook set in madame and her
appreciation of his -attentions. It looks
as if the domestic situation would be
come more serious in a few weeks. The
spouse of the "other man" is not doing
much talking, but, apparently, a power
ful amount of thinking.
Mrs. Hugh Tevie, who in time has
turned the heads of nearly all eligible and
ineligible partis of two continents, de
nies that the Earl of Rosslyn applied
for the position at the head of her list of
admirers. It is true that before leaving
England she was the guest of his sister,
the Duchess of Sutherland, and that the
earl accompanied her all the way to
Queenstown, but that, says Mrs. Tevis,
was merely platonic friendship, as she
was still weak from the attack of typhoid
fever, and not the slightest extra squeeze
of hands marked the auf wiedersehen on
Among the pile of luggage was one
trunk filled with all sorts of moving
things that delight the heart of childhood,
and since her arrival at Manhasset manor.
Shelter island, Mrs. Tevis has spent most
of her time spinning tops and running
"choo-choo" cars for the edification of the
two-and-a-half-year old "curly top,"
who is said to be an exact counterpart of
his father. Fortune has just further fa
vored the youngster, for in addition to
his reputed fortune of five millions, he has
fallen heir to another large fortune by
the death of his little half-sister, eight
years old, a child of the first Mrs. Tevis.
He is a frail looking boy, tall and grave
beyond his years.
There is quite a family gathering at
Manhasset manor, Mrs. Baxter being there
with her other two daughters, Katherine
and Eleanor, respectively eleven and fif
teen years old. With them is also Mrs.
Tyson, wife of Col. Laurence D. Tyson, of
Knoxville, Term., who distinguished him
self as colonel of volunteers during the
Spanish-American war. George Baxter is
still abroad.
Mrs. J. Stewart Barney has at least
reached the goal of her desires. She -was
a guest at Mrs. Astor's latest dinner.
This is the result of two years' campaign
ing with an attractive aunt, an indulgent
mother and lots of cash. So far, Mrs.
Barney has been the only one of the
newer arrivals to be so honored. Mrs.
Philip Lydig takes her position through
her husband, and then Mrs. Lydig is a
very ornamental young woman to have at
any function. Mrs. Van Nest, with her
parure of diamonds and emeralds, has so
far not been able to get into the Astor
camp, but so long as her daughter has
arrived, the triumph is not incomplete.
The story is one of forced marches, start
ing from Lenox, to Bar Harbor and then
to Newport. J. Stewart Barney was not
among the guests.

should be Invested, read '"The Globe's
Paying "Wants."
