Bureau of The Bee,
Washington, April 1.
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

Gamble has been visiting in Boston,
Buffalo and in Chicago on her way
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.

Frances A. Barrier.
Sear Miss Fairfax; I am 21 and
am' going; with a young man who la
to my Idea all that a man should be.
He is an ex-service boy and for the
last four months has been unable to
get worK. 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. Why don't
you give him encouragement and
help him to get on his feet again?
Then when he is in a position to
justify it. I think be will ask you to

Dear Miss Fairfax: What would,
you advise a gir to do who baa writ
a mad thing, And gradually the
ruth of the autumn tircrie igalmt
my face, the soothing auiet with
which all outdoor ihingi take liold of
me, and the strain of the median
leal control of the car which 1 w
eserc-itinji brought down my mental
bloodheat to lomclliing approaching
the normal. For the firt time I
thought ol mv little lad and trained
what ! wai doing.
Throci of Conscience.
The realisation nearly precipitateJ
the accident which for mile I had
been miraculously avoiding. A sud
den chill inred me, and 1 began to I
tremble violently. Ihe wheel
swerved in my grasp, and if 1 had
been going at the speed of a lew
second before, the car would havj
gone over the emnaiikment. rut
at it wai I wai able to check the
car Just a it gram! a tree, and
when 1 had brought it to a stop at
one Vide of the road I turned off
the switch key. drew the motor robe
around me, and for several minute
sat ihimed and shivering while re
morse had its way with me,
Kemorse was not the only emo
tion, however, that I found in my
heart My only throes of conscience
were for the rjsk of leaving my
baby motherless, which I had taken.
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
