LADY MARJORIE MANNERS
BECOMES MARQUIS' BRIDE
Bow low to her?Lady Marjorle
Manners, eldest daughter of the Duke
of Hutland, is
now the Mar
chioness of An?
Arter ton years
of BUBnense this
girl In the king
dom," as Queen
her, was the oth
er day married to
one of England's
has a real $1,000,
000 a year. What la something more,
ho is considered the handsomest man
I In all the house of lords. He has
I been In this country several times,
I always after big game.
London bociety?and this includes
very many Americans?is all upset
about the newest betrothal, quite the
most important of the year. It is the
greatest surprise of the season now
ending. Designing dowagers have
been angling after Anglesey ever
Blnce he came so unexpectedly Into
his marqulsute and his millions in
1905, and all but one of them are now
Anglesey was only a cousin of the
title?and the money?when it all
suddenly came to him. That bejewel
ed young fop, the- fifth Marquis of
Anglesey, was his cousin. Crazy about
clothes, actresses and display, he
knew not how to enjoy the great
wealth which was his. He died sud
denly at Monte Carlo, and his body
was flung into the suicide's patch
awaiting orders from England. Final
ly it was shipped there in a plain
deal packing case, and only a score of
persons attended the quiet funeral of
the young man who had a million a
year and didn't know how to spend it
And so to plain Charles Paget, his
couBln, went the money and the title.
This young chap was cast in a wholly
different mold. Good-looking, clever,
fond of life and people, he had spent
his modest nineteen years in all sim
plicity. He found his vast estates?.
40,000 acres make up his domain?
quite encumbered. Even then they
were worth $400,000 a year in Income
to him, but careful management has
put them back where they were when
his eccentric cousin Inherited them.
Today they are worth half n hundred
million dollars and bring him In two
hundred thousand pounds sterling a
year Income, which 1b the American
equivalent of a million dollars a year.
Lady Marjorle was born In a tent
near Las Vegas, N. M., when her par
ents were spending a vacation there
In 1883. The bride Is two years older
than hor husband.
ACKNOWLEDGES MANY FADS
Mrs. Sherman, wife of the vic<
president, acknowledges many fads,
and says that the
more varied the
has in life tho
keeps. In the past
10 years she has
lelsuro for such
flowers, hooks, pa
triotic and philan
thropic work than
in tho days when
her children were
small a ml her hus< I
band Just beginning a career which
has rounded out with the vice presi
dency of tho nation. One of her chief
Jovr Is In the love of growing things,
and as the years have passed sho has
added extensively to the ? modest
greeneries, ferneries and gardens of
her Ctlca home.
Since her marriage Mrs. Sherman
has managed her end of the dual re
sponsibility of making a home, and
has taken entire control of domestla
matters. It was she who selected and
in many instances planted tho many
choico trees, shrubs and flowers that
fill the well-planned gardens, and It Is
she who attends to the house plants
and their tranafer Into winter quar
For years Mrr. Sherman made it a
habit not to go to Washington until
nfter Christmas, in order that she
might give undivided care to the
plants removed from the grounds and
distributed through her home ano
placed In the greenhouse. For year
also she discouraged her husband In
getting a Washington home, for the
reason that her plants and flowers are
such an essential part of It that she
could not conceive a pleasant environ
ment Without them.
Among the largo and Influential
group of New Yorkers resident In
Washington she Is held In particular
esteem, and is in a way a sort of dean
and arbiter of social affairs for them.
