HE OPENING of the "official sea
son" at our national capital
finds in evidence a most inter
esting group of women as the
mistresses of the principal
homes in the official "foreign
colony. " The foreign colony is
made up , it will be understood , '
of the families of those alien of
ficials who are sent to this
country to represent their re
spective sovereigns or govern
ments. Time was when very
few of these foreign ambassa
dors , ministers and secretaries
of embassies and legations
brought their wives and fami
lies to the United States when
they were delegated to act as
diplomatic agents on this side
of the Atlantic , but with the in
creasing importance of the re-
there has come a change ,
jmblic as a
unusual for one of these foreign
and now It Is very
eign statesmen to take up his abode here with
out bringing his tfntire household with him.
This season the diplomatic corps has a new
dean or leader , and this brings a new occupant
to the coveted post of foremost woman of the
foreign contingent. The new dean is Baron Hen-
gelmuller , the ambassador of Austria-Hungary. A
diplomat must Inevitably remain in the United
States for some years ere he can advance to the
position of dean , but the Hengelmullers have had
an especially long tenure in the land of the free
baying been here for more than a- dozen years.
Consequently Baroness Hengelmuller is well
known not only in most of our large cities , but
in fashionable resorts such as Bar Harbor , Lenox
and Hot Springs. She is a Polish woman and has
become known for some of her fads , such as
unique automobiles , fancy stationery and pet
The second most prominent place in the femi
nine roster of the diplomatic corps is held by
an American woman , who is married to J. J. Jus-
serand , the ambassador of France to the United
-States. Mme. Jusserand , who' is a very handsome
woman , spent most of her early life in Paris ,
where her father was a banker , and in looks and
dress she Is much like the French women. Two
interesting Russian women are to be found at the
czar's branch office in Washington. They are
Baroness Rosen and Baroness Elizabeth Rosen ,
the wife and daughter of Bdron Rosen , the Rus
sian ambassador. Two women also share the
honors at the German embassy. Count von Bern-
storff , alike to his fellow-envoy from France , has
an American wife , and the daughter of the house ,
Countess Luise-Alexandra von Bernstorff , is as
attractive as any American girl one could find in
a day's journey , although withal possessed of .the
splendid complexion that is the common heritage
of so many of the girls of the fatherland.
Yet another one of Miss Columbia's daughters
who has a place of honor in this foreign commu
nity set down on American soil is the Countess
de Buisseret , wife of the minister from Belgium ,
and Senora Dona Alicia Ward de Riano , the wife
of the Spanish minister was Miss Alice Ward , a
beautiful American girl , ere she wedded her
Spanish lover after a long courtship , during which
the comae of true lore did not alivays mm

in the far east. Many people may be surprised to
learn that there is an American woman in China's
headquarters at Washington. She is Mrs. Yung
Kwai , the wife of Yung Kwai , the secretary of the
legation. She is a native of Springfield , Mass. , and
her husband has spent practically all the time since
his marriage at the Chinese legation at Washington ,
so that she and her children have seen very little
of the Celestial empire.
There are dozens of Spanish-speaking women
in the diplomatic colony at Washington , because
each of the Pan-American nations has its embassy
or legation at Uncle Sam's base of operations. Senora -
nora Calve , wife of the minister from Costa Rica ,
and their daughters have been residents of the
United States for more than eleven years now , and
some of the other women from Central and South
America have been here for almost as long. Of the
lesser European countries there are many fair rep
resentatives in the diplomatic circle , but in this
sphere also the American woman has won her way
by her beauty and cleverness , for Countess Moltke.
the wife of the minister from Denmark , and Mme.
Coromilias , the beautiful bride of the minister
from Greece , are both natives of the United States.
Even the secretary of the Persian legation , Mirza
All Kuli Khan , has an American wife , who , like
the Yankee woman at the Chinese legation , hails
from New England.
A Point For Patricia
"I rented the first floor of a palace in Naples
last year , " said a globe trotter , " and the owner of
the palace , a Neapolitan count , lived on the top floor
with his family. Every day I used to see one of
this man's servants trotting up the grand stairway
with a pair of carriage doors on his shoulders.
"Yankee-like , the carriage doors made me cu
rious. I did some detective work , and what do you
suppose I discovered ? Well , sir , I discovered that
the count shared a carriage with three other noble
men , and each owner , when he went driving , used
his own doors , so as to sport his crest on the
"The Neapolitan nobility are great for show.
Every evening , in their handsome turnouts , with
two men on the box , they glide elegantly through
the steep and crooked streets of Naples. These turn
outs used to impress me , but now , when I see them ,
I smile and ask myself how many pairs of detached
doors each carriage in the procession has. "
