The olilcst Inhabitants are griev ing just now over the fast disap pearance of the historic old man sions, the Draper house on K street and the Corcoran house on II street Corcoran home is probably the mont famous in the social history of Washington next to the White House. As the Home of the late William W. Corcoran it was a prominent gathering place for exclu sive society resident, official, diplo matic. During the civil war it was leased to the French minister, M. de Montholou, while Mr. Corcoran was abroad. The ball given by the min ister and his wife in honor of the commander-in-chief of the army, General Grant, in this spacious old house, with the splendid garden at the west side and behind it, in 1866, was recorded then as "the most mag nificent ball that has ever taken place at the capital." Mr. Corcoran purchased the place from Daniel Webster, to whom it was presented by admiring constituents and friends in Massachusetts. lie lived in it during his regime as secretary of state and at the conclusion of his service found it far too expensive to keen uti and felt obliged to dispose of it. Previous to Mr. Webster's ownership it was occupied by a Brit ish minister, Mr, Fakenham. During the recimcs of Mr. Pakcnham and of Mr. Webster the pld house was full of tradition of brilliant func tions and brilliant companies. The Draper house, the home of the late General and Mrs. William F. Draper, the former a member of con gress and for many years United States ambassador to Italy, . It has just been sold by their daughter, Princess Boncompagnt of Rome, Italy, to the Masonic Mutual Life Insurance company, who will erect a modern office building in its place.. This house was built in the early days of Washington's awakening after the civil war by Governor Shepherd, and with its two adjoin iug houses was known for many vears as "Boss Shepherd's Folly." At that time the houses were far up town, at the corner of K and the be ginning of Connecticut avenue, and they were very magnificent for that day, made of white stone and being large and spacious. Boss ohep herd lost the houses, being financial ly embarrassed. The corner one fell into the hands of Senator Cameron of Pennsylvania. Next it was occu pied as the Chinese legation, and when the Chinese removed further uptown to "Stewart Castle" it was taken as the Russian legation, this being many years before it was an embassy. During the regime ' of Minister Charles de Struve the house was the scene of much splendid en tertaining. The next owners of this mansion were the late Mr. and Mrs. Wash ington McLean, grandparents of Ed ward Beale McLean, who occupied it as their winter home. It was in this house that Admiral Dewey waa tendered a great reception by these hosts upon his return from Manila, at which 'time he renewed acquaint ance with their younger daughter, the widow of General Hazen, and it was from this house? they went to St. Pauls church to be married. A wedding breakfast was served to the immediate families afterward in the house. General Draper purchased the house from the estate of Washington McLean. Many famous balls were given in the old ball room during their regime and each season Mrs. Draper gave a beautiful fancy dress party for her daughter from the time she .was a tiny child, the little people meeting together on these occasions each year until they were grownup ladies and gentlemen, the regime culminating in the 'magnifi cent scene-of the wedding of Miss Draper and Prince Boncumpagni of Italy in this same ball room. By reason of the prince's royal blood Cardinal Gibbons gave per mission for the 'ceremony to be per formed in the home, and a temporary altar was built in the ball room and the cardinal came from Baltimore to officiate. He was a frequent dinner guest in the mansion, as one of Mrs. Draper's annual functions when she was occupying her Washington home was the cardinal's dinner. For many years Mrs. Draper held sway as the arbiter of Washington society and to be invited to dine in her house was to be firmly established in smart society. There are no two mansions in Washington around which more tender memories cling than these two. The famous gar den typical of a southern home back of Corcoran house and securely en closed with a high brick wall was one of the most beautiful and stately ground about, hcra My Marriage Problems Amii Oarnaoa New Phase ol "REVELATIONS OF A WIFE iCwriakii Hill The Way Midge Slowly Won Com mind of Htrielf.

Mr, and Mrs. Gamble landed nearly a month ago n New York and Mr, Uamble re timed to Omaha at that time. Mrs. Gamble has been visiting in Boston, Buffalo and in Chicago on her way home. Mrs. Gamble says their most in teresting experience was in Rome, where thev soent the week of the rew pope's coronation. The city was crowded to capacity for the oc casion, and the great church of St. Peters was packed from 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon with people who stood for the entire six hours to witness the coronation cere monies. Many observers went at 6 in the morning to secure vantage points. Mr. Gamble saw it alt, but Mrs. Gamble contented herself with watching the crowd from its out skirts. The spectacle, she said, was brilliant, not only with the cere monial robes of the clergy, but the bright uniforms of the Italian regi ments which were in attendance. The Swiss guards, long the official papal regiment, were lined up at the portals of the church, their magnificent headdresses shining in the sunlight. The Gambles sailed from Naples on the Arabic, touching at Monaco and the Azores on their return trio. rAmong the passengers were a Rus sian prjnce and his niece en route to Hollywood, where the young woman, an attractive girl of 24 who spoke English rather brokenly, planned to enter the movies. They promised to spend a day with the Gambles on their way west later in the spring.

I have been coins? with him for nearly two years. One night he round out I had been out with an other boy. and he foreot his indif ferent attitude and told me that he loved me. I have cared for him ever since I knew him, but have kept him at a distance because of this. Since then he continually tells me that he cares for me and he shows it in many ways. His family treats me as one of them, yet he has never asked me to marry him. His talk suggests it many times, but he has never come right out with it He did say one evening that a man without regular work had no right to claim exclusively the society of any girl. Can I excuse him on that, Or what shall I do? J. F. C, I think the man does love you and his financial condition prevents . his asking you to marry him.

My anger against Dicky was Mill as fierce at ever. I could not for get the brutal words he had flung at me, as he sprang from the car, and I resolved that I would give him ample time to reflect upon them before I went home again. I felt in the pocket of my motor coat, assured myself that my purse was with me, knew mat it contained sufficient funds for a lunch and for any possible minor accident to the car which should demand a garage man. The road on which I was led to Southampton, and I resolved to go on to that town and on through the beautiful Shinnccock hills to the villages beyond, at one of which, as my fancy directed, I could lunch, returning home at my leisure. I ran hastily over atfairs, and was sure that with Katie in the kitchen, and with both Lillian and Katherine in the house, there was no real need of me for hours. And there was enough rancor at Dicky still stirring in me to make me gloat in feminine fashion over the anxiety which I was sure he would feel when I did not return and the explanations he would be compelled to make in Wauneta April S.
