WITH GIFTS TO EACH OTHER
AND A FAMILY DINNER
The President and Mrs. Roosevelt Celebrated
Their Eighteenth Wedding Anniversary.
Washington. D. C., Dec. 10.—The
President and Mrs. Roosevelt cele
brated their eighteenth wedding an
niversary in quiet fashion by a family
dinner party. As always they ex
changed gifts between themselves and
were the happy recipients of many
presents from relatives and friends,
besides numerous congratulatory let
ters and telegrams from all parts of
Mrs. Roosevelt, fresh and charm
ing. In a morning gown of
"baby blue,” looked scarcely out of
her teens. Looking at her closely it
is difficult to believe that she has
been eighteen years a wife and is
the mother of a strapping college boy.
Early in the morning she received a
basket of beautiful pansies, and an
other of valley lillies bordered with
mignonette. As everybody knows
heliotrope is the President's favorite
flower, as the red carnation was Mc-
Kinley's favorite. Every morning a
few fresh sprays of heliotrope in a
small vase of water are placed on
President Roosevelt s desk before he
comes to his office. On the morning
of the anniversary the whole place
was fragrant with the modest purple
flower, the top of the desk, the win
dow sills and tables bearing great
bowls and bunches of them, provided
by the White House attaches who by
this time are well aware of their em
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Goelet, of New
York, spent Saturday and Sunday in
the White House, and a smaller din
ner party was given for them on Sat
urday evening, followed by a musicals.
The table decorations were of brides
maids roses and Roman hyacinths.
The guests of the musicale included
many young friends of Miss Alice
Roosevelt, who received them in a
girlishly pretty gown of white mouse
line de sole embroidered in pink
rose buds, a half blown natural rose
low down in her hair. Among the
male guests were Lieut. U. S. Grant,
Third, Viscount de Chambrun, Count
Sala and Representative Nicholas
Longworth of Cincinnati, whose name
\ still persistently connected with
that of the President’s daughter al
though no betrothal announcement
has been authorized.
Eleanor Hooeielt' F.nßngement.
The engagement has just been an
nounced in New York of another of
the “Roosevelt cousins.” Miss Eleonor
Roosevelt. She is daughter of the
late Mr. and Mrs. Elliott Roosevelt
and niece of the President. Miss
Rooseveit was introduced to society
two years ago at about the same time
as her cousins, the Misses Alice,
Dorothy. Christine and Elfrida Roose
velt. all of whom are very nearly the
same age. Her mother was the beau
tiful Miss Anna Hall, a daughter of
Mrs. Valentine G. Hall, who died some
years ago. Miss Roosevelt now makes
her home with her cousin, Mrs. Henry
Parish. Jr., who was formally Miss
Susie Ludlow. Her father was the
President's only brother. Young Mr.
Roosevelt'S half niece married Mr.
Theodore Douglas Robinson, a nephew
of President Roosevelt's, last June, in
Hvde Park. This engagement is na
turally one of wide interest, owing
to the various family connections and
to the prominence of the Roosevelt

Major anil Mr*. Campbell,
Maj. and Mrs. Colin Campbell, who
were married last week Tuesday, with
extreme simplicity and in the presence
of only eight witnesses, came back
from their brief wedding trip on the
following Saturday, to be the guests
of Mamma Leiter for a short period.
They will spend a few days in Chf
cago. at the Leiter residence in Rush
street. The bride will meet all her Chi
cago relatives at a family farewell
dinner, to be given by her aunt, Mrs.
Victoria C. Thompson, who resides in
Dearborne avenue. Maj. and Mrs.
Campbell will sail for England next
week, en route to India, their home
for some years to come. Mrs. Levi
Leiter is still in Washington, and so
seriously indisposed that she has made
no plans ahead.
Of course, being in the deep
est mourning, the family, now
narrowed to the widow and her young
est daughter, will take no part in
Washington society this winter, even
should they remain in the magnificent
white stone house on Dupont Circle.
It is understood that Mrs. Leiter is
trying to sell her Washington proper
ty, with a view to living permanently
abroad. Miss Daisy Leiter’s well-known
preference for England, and the fact
that two of her daughters are already
"British subjects,” so to say, lends
color to the report.
The Earl of Suffolk, who is
now a guest of the Leiter
family and whose attentions to Miss
Daisy Leiter have led to the common
belief that she will be the next Ameri
can peeress, is the nineteenth Earl of
his name, which is one of the oldest in
England, the title dating from 1603.
He was born in 1877 and came into
the title in 1898 on the death of his
father, who was the eighteenth Earl.
He is a captain in the British army,
and as aid-de-camp to Lord Curzon in
India during the visit of the Misses
Leiter to that country, he naturally
saw much of the American heiresses,
and, like Maj. Campbell, has been a
long and persistent suitor, for whom it
is confidently predicted success will
not be much longer delayed.
Speaking of international marriages
—the troubles of some of our girls who
would wed titled foreigners certainly
bear out Shakespeare’s statement
anent "the course of true love.” Miss
Elizabeth Howe of Pittsburg, for ex
ample, has had considerable difficulty
in the purchase of her future coronet
and arrangements are not yet safely
concluded. Count Cini of Italy, the so
called "man” In the case, demands an
exorbitant price, altogether out of pro
portion to his true value, from the
American point of view. He came
over to this country with Miss Howe,
and her family several weeks ago to
make definite arrangements for the
payment of his vast debts, and the set
tlement of a liberal sum upon himself
before he would consent to a betrothal
announcement. There was a breezy
discussion whether the count should be
allowed his modest demand of $70,000
cash with which to pay his debts and
$15,000 a year for "pin money,” or sub
mit to Miss Howe's figures of $50,000
down and SIO,OOO a year. The Count
declared he couldn’t exist on so penu
rious a sum, and finally left the council
in a huff, imagining that the glitter
of a receding coronet would bring the
would-be bride after him in a hurry.
But he was mistaken. Fortunately the
Pittsburg heiress has a mind of her
own, and she decided that, though
counts come high we don’t really have
to have them, and that their market
price should be decidedly under that
demanded for dukes and earls and the
larger fry generally. So she turned
her back on the Italian title and pre
pared for a two years' trip around the
world, with a party which should not
include Count Cinci. Finding himself
thus practically Ignored and realizing
that his matrimonial prospects for any
futu*e wealthy alliance in this land of
heiresses might be seriously impaired
—shop-worn, so to say—he hastened
back to Miss Howe’s side and submit
ted to her figures with what grace he
could summon. It is now announced
