16 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 the country. 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 ployer’s tastes. 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 family. At the Chinese Legation. The Chinese minister, Sir Chen-Tung Liang, opened his customary series or dinner parties with a large com pany last week. The magnificent new legation of the Yellow Dragon, with its great rooms and unique furnishings, lends itself admirably to the gorgeous entertainments on a large scale which the minister delights in. The minister from the Netherlands. Mr. Forkheer R. de Marees Von Swln deren, who went abroad several weeks ago, has landed in New York. He was a passenger of the luckless Touraine. and had a rough time of It, running out of a regular Cape Horn gale into a severe snow storm. His marriage with Miss Glover, a Washington belle, will take place late this month, and Baron Christmas.. „ AT M™ BEE HIVE N. SCHUTZ, 17 and 19 Broughton Street, East.

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. International Marriages, 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.

(Continued from Page Fifteen.) “Funny, but nearly every person who steps in here and sees that picture will instinctively yawn. In the course of a week or so the thing has become so funny, I am afraid the calendar will have to be placed where people who drop In will not see it, or I won’t get any work out of my clerks. They have started betting on whether the next party in will yawn, and the thing is proving detrimental to the disci pline of the store. But its funny what a subtle spell suggestion has for the average mortal.” A NEW POMPADOt'R EFFECT. For the girl who requires hight, and yet needs softening lines about her face, the hairdressers offer a pretty treatment of the pompadour. It Is first Marcelled all around the front in rather a deep puff, the center of which is drawn slightly down on the fore head and the sides, fluffiing out softly over the e’ars. This first row of puf fing is held In place by very plain real tortoise shell combs, from which rises like a plateau a second and smaller puff of Marcelling, in the heart of which the back hair, Marcelled from the n'ape of the neck up, is drawn In a fiat coll and finished with a but terfly bow, which does not stand up stiffly, but seems to cling to the hair. This may be made of ribbons to match the frock or of chiffon, or, better still, It may be one of the exquisite race butterflies offered In all the shops. SOCIETY OUT OF TOWN BRUNSWICK.
