LONDON, June lS.-(New York World
Cablegram Bperta.1 Telegram ) Princess
HatsfelJt gave tonight at her Berkeley
Square residence a party at which the
king's brother, the duke of Connaught, the
duchess of Connaught and the "smartest"
of London society were present. After the
royal dinner party about too people gath
ered In the ball room, where Jeanne Oran
ier, the famous French actress, now in
London, gave a performance. A high plat
form was luxuriously fitted up, with a cur
tain made of real pink rosea. Mr. and
Mra.' J. J. Astor came from Paris tit at
tend the party. They brought Mra. Shaw
with them, and are staying at C'larUlge's,
Intending to remain In England until after
VUS Ascet races. The princess' brother.
Archer M. Huntington, arrived with George
voage of New York In time to attend
The C. P. Huntington fortune has been
divided between the princess and Archer.
The brother Is a talented author, whose
books on Spain especially are clever and
true to Spanish life. Mr. Huntington will
meet the cream of English society at his
Bister's, as she la riding on the very crest
of the social wave In London and alms at
exclimlvenesa In all her entertainments.
Countess FabrlcotU Is still visiting her.
Mad Over Ulgr Parties.
The American colonists have "gone mad"
over the big dancing parties. They now
are concentrating their forces on the next
grand ball, which will be given July 9, In
aid of Charing Cross hospital. There will
be processions of all nations, with America
again In the lead with all the pretty Ameri
can women now here.
The success which attended the big ball
In Albert hall Tuesday night was due to
the American element, which pervaded the
movement from the very start. Mrs.
Arthur Paget was the head and front of
the undertaking. Although she had been
ailing in Paris for two months she man
aged everything slpendldly and htr own
American quadrille was one of the most
magnificent things ever seen.
Apart from the beauty of the American
women the dresses they wore were mostly
Worth gowns, while It is estimated that
at least te.Ouu.OUQ worth of diamonds were
worn by eight of these women. Oladys
Deacon, the only unmarried one of them,
wore a few strings of magnificent big
pearls. The American flag was twlated
around the body of each dancer, falling In
front in a long scarf to the feet. The un
derdresses of all were exquisite white
robes of the most extravagant order of
Mrs. Paget the Leader.
Mrs. Paget led the procession around
the arena with 8,000 eyes fastened on her.
She looked like a queen, with a flowing
white dress of some diaphanous material,
while her neck biased In the most beauti
ful jewels. American sashes were twisted
tight to the figure, forming a corselet of
stars and stripes.
No one was more conspicuous than Mrs.
John Drexel. She wore the prettiest frock
at the ball, with 100 deep flounces covered
with silver embroidery,' the low neck filled
In with row upon row of splendid dia
monds. She wore at least three diamond
necklaces, while clasping her throat was
the highest dog collar of pearls Imaginable.
Across the bust she wore a broad blue
ribbon from shoulder to waist covered with
graduated sun diamonds that gleamed with
the thousand lights from all parts of the
room. Mrs. Drexel Is a capital dancer and
her graceful beauty was commented on by
Lady Dufferln and Lady Craven also wore
Worth dresses with a truly America air.
As there was a mlaslng'lady, Mrs. Avery
was asked to All In the Russian quadrille.
Handsome Mies Padelford, the daughter
of Mrs. Ernest Cunard, was also at the
ball. Miss Padelford Is much admired In
London. She has all the light freedom of
manner so attractive to the reserved,
Belmonta Dine with Rothschilds.
Mr. and Mrs. Perry Belmont had the
honor of being invited to the dinner given
Wednesday by Lord and Lady Rothschild
for the king end queen at their house
in Piccadilly. Mrs. Belmont wore a mag
nificent yellow satin gown, encrusted with
jewels, and on her heud a superb diamond
tiara. The Belmonts, whose connection
with the Rothschilds has been long and
Intimate, were, until a few days ago, on a
visit to them. ' They are now staying at
Nothing gives W. H. Smith of Chicago
so much pleasure an entertaining friends at
"smart" dinners at the Carlton or Clar
Idgo's. Every evening sees him surrounded
by witty, pretty young society leaders. He
Is especially fond of the American colony,
all members of which are on such good
terms with each other. For the Albert
hall, on Tuesday night, he had a huge
dinner party, and on the night previous he
had a dozen Americana dining with him
at the Carlton, where a very special menu
was provided. The party included Mrs.
Laurence Townsend. Lady Lister Kaye. Mr.
and Mrs. John Drexel, Mr. von Andre, Mr.
Hare and Mrs. Httrrlman. The meal was
served at a round table adorned with
La France roses, among which small elec
tric lamps glowed. .
At another table the same night at the
Carlton, Mrs. Henry Slegel had a party
for a number of friends, Including Mrs. W.
P. Ward and Mrs. J. Terrell.
The countess of Oxford, daughter of Dr.
C. Corbin, New York, has returned froni
a visit of some months in the United States.
Other recent arrivals are "Clem" Stude
baker, Franklin Brooks, Mrs. E. L. Oodkln,
Julia Marlowe and Mr. and Mra. Louis
Btuyvesant Chanler. ,
Ambassador Choate, his wife and daugh
ter will arrive next week from New York.
This has been a very Inconvenient time
for the ambassador to be absent, so many
Americans are here and so much is going
on in society. Young Mr. Choate and his
bride are expected to visit London toward
the end of their honeymoon.

spectacle known as the "dancing pro

singular epidemic which caused them to
dance and twist In strange fashion and
then fall deud. The people of Echternach
remembered the good saint Wllllbrod and
made a pilgrimage to his tomb, dancing
and twisting in imitation of the move

tomb, where they deposit some offering.
