LONDOX, Feb. JO. (Special.) Ameri
can women are taking time by the fore
lock, aa several of them have already an
nounced what they Intend to do directly
tha season opens. Aa a matter of fact,
sav for a few political functlona which
are on tha tapis, the only gaieties dis
cussed are thoea being organised by
hostesses from tha "other aide." Tha
Hon. Mr. Charlee Lawrence, who waa
Catherine Sumner of New Turk, ao prom
inent a figure In philanthropy and ao in
timate a friend of Prtnreas Christian. Is
to do a great deal socially thla spring
She is quite a grande dame, wears pic
ture hata and wonderful Jewels. When
rirst Princess Christian met her. her
royal highness remarked to a friend that
he waa somewhat "afraid of her grand
manner." But now they are fat friends,
and the other day Mrs. Charles Lawrence
resigned her presidency of the Royal hos
pital at Putney In favor of the princess.
aa she aald she felt "a royal name would
be more helpful for the institution." She
has, however, at the request of the com
mittee, consented to remain on aa the
honorary treasurer. The Hon. Mrs
Char lea Lawrence has given Immense
uma to this pet charity of hers. ,
Mrs. George Gould has been cabling for
news about Interesting houses to be lot
In London, and I hear she is one of av
era! rich Americana who have Stratford
houae under consideration. Only a mil
lionaire could keep up properly this mag'
nlflcent . London palace, which ahould
meet the requirements of Mrs. Gould In
every way.- Her American friends her
credit her with the Intention of giving a
ball for ber daughter, Marjorle, In Lon
don that will aurpaaa anything we have
' ever Been. . Tou have no notion of the ex
citement Marjorle'a coming la causing.
We love an American girl who la up to
fun, who la unconventional and. before
all things, natural If report speaks truly,
Marjorle Gould la up to all aorta of
pranks. Consequently we are Just dying
to see her. ' It waa the pranka of Mar
garetta Drexel which hare made her the
immense success she Is.
Mrs. Drexel's Xtw Hease.
' Mrs. Anthony Drexal's new house In
Orosvenor Square has given her no end of
trouble. It Is alwsys so when people have
to hunt up furniture, tapestries and bric-a-brac
of certain periods ao that they will
not clash with each other. Like other well
known American women ahe has brought
her knowledge of. things artistic to a fine
. point and no dealer or commission agent,
however enlightened, can pussle her In re
gard to what Is genuine and what Is not.
The Dreaels mean to have their own prt
' vate band and propose to have In it only
. picked players. There are numberless ap-
pllcants for the posts available, some quite
distinguished violinists desiring to be ap
pointed. It Is well known that the Drexels
pay magnificently for what they want. One
of the features of the American million
aire's new Groavenor Square . manaion la
the musle room wherein is to be exhibited
a unique collection of musical Instruments.
Cbm priceless specimens no longer In use

'The' musicians' gallery . where the band

be given during the season is the largeat

N one has ever given more beautiful
cotillons than Mrs. Drexel, many of the
figures having been designed by her, while
the presents have been In many Instances
real gems, gold and Jewelled cigarette cases
and the like. She thinks nothing of spend-.
Ing 16.030 on the dainty trifles with which
she presents her friends at these gather
' ing. Is It any wonder that Anglo-American
society Is looking forward with keenest
excitement to ber much talked of balls In
the Immediate future.
? The first la fixed for tha end of March
ir the beginning 'of April and It Is antici
pated that It will be the moat brilliant af
fair of the earlier part of the season. Mrs.
Anthony Drexel has only one fault as a
hostess. She Is Inclined to overcrowd her
parties,, a pardonable weakness .which
merely proves that she is an exceedingly
; kind hearted woman. We are told that
there are crowds of beautiful Yankee de
butantes coming over this season, but I
Ventura to predict that Margaretta Drexel
will hold her own among the lot. She Is
undoubtedly not only the prettiest, but the
moat popular American girl that ever ap
peared nn the aortal horlson of London
since Gladys Deacon charmed us all.
Beaatlfal Charms Girl.
Singing In the back row of the chorus of
one of our musical playa here la one of the
tnoat beautiful young American girls It Is
possible to conceive. She has tha face of a
Madonna, but with more character; her
eyes are, as aa enthusiastic youth expressed
It-to me. "tha only rral violet eyea one has
ever aeen and her lashes are long enough
to swsrp the celling.' She Is ss good aa
She la beautiful and ahe thinks of but one
man In the world, a struggling young artist
with smbltlrn but no name. In most Lon
don theaters he "masher" Is not admitted
behind the ecercs. At one very Important
one, however, Alfred de Rothschild has
rsrte blamhe to ccme and g he plsiea
He is a great patron of the arts and a
genuine lovvr of music as well as of the
hesutlful and he likes to hsve a chat with
aay performer, tr.an or woman, who Inter
eata him. Not Infreq-jently he asks hslf a
dzn of the srtlsts te supper. The other
night he was giving a festivity of the kind
snd hs requested the beautiful young Amer
ican to make or.e of the gathering, after.
be It understood, he had been presented to
her In the moat orthodox fashion by the
manager. But with the air of a queen the
American looked the beat catch In Lonuon
up and down and frigidly declined. It Is
probably the first time In his life the great
financier found himself refused a request
by any woman and It seems the experience
wss novel and will be memorable. "I don't
accept hospital ty from men I do not know,"
aald the Madonna.- "It la perfectly ridicu
lous that you have not a halo round your
head1." was the only comment vouchsafed
by the millionaire.
Mrs. Vaaderallt Pepalar.
No woman la more Bought after on the
Klvlera tlua winter than Mrs. French Van
derbllt. She haa the most extraordinary
vogue, which it la a little difficult to ac
count for. Very pretty ahe evidently Is,
snd dressed faultlessly, but far more strik
ingly beautiful women surround her and
receive no homage whatsoever. Some at
tribute Mra. Vanderbllt's powera of at
traction to her very magnetic personality.
Others say she carries about with her a
Chinese charm which haa the moat extraor
dinary occult power an Influence so great
thst It Is al3 to reach her late husband,
who la credited "with the burning desire to
get his wife back again. All this may be
the purest nonsense, but with many It galna
credence. Cerflln It la that Mra. Trench
Vanderbllt Is. like ber sister. Lady Cheyies
more, a great lover of charms and a be
liever In their Influence. Both have all
sorts of mascots from blrthstones to stat
uettes of salnte.
Will Mrs. Vanderbllt re-marry? This Is
the question on the Hps of all her friends.
She shows, so far. no definite preference
for anyone. She stsnds as a queen among
courtiers, and like all theae. wily American
satiety women ahe la aa carefully chaper
oned as a debutante. Th e fact Is emi
nently amusing to English women, who In
the first Instance, were taught to despise
the chaperon by their transatlantic staters.
Another example of the very much chapcr
or.ed married woman Is the duchess of
Marlborough. Mra. Marshall Field, Jr., too,
before her second marriage, would cot
cross the street with a msn unless she had
a female attendant. LADT MART.

LONDON. Feb. 20. 8peclal "Pauper'a
Paradise" Is the name given to London's
biggest lodging house, which is also the
largest Institution of Its kind In the world.
The English metropolis hss the reputation
of doing more for Its poor than any other
place on earth. Alien "hard-Upa" from all
over Europe flock to London for the reason
that even the English workhouse la better
than many of their squalid homes In their
native lands. 1
The particular poor man's Elysium here
referred to Is situated near the London
bridge, not five minutes' walk from the
Bank of England. Though there are many
common lodging houses In London and the
palatial mansions put up by Lord Row ton
have earned an international reputation for
themselves, the great institution, here de

any other lodging bouse In the world. Here,
for the extremely modest sum of 10 cents,

congregate, bringing with them pieces of
mest, vegetables and other eatables which
they proceed to cook over the great roaring
grille fires, eleven of which are kept con
stantly going. All cooking utensils are pro

CONSTANTINOPLE. Feb. Sfc-In Con
stantinople the other day, before a room
full of English snd American women, a
young Turkish woman living in Btamboul
waa asked to say something about her
fellow countrywomen. No nervousness
was exlbited by the small black robed
figure that rose to apeak to such an audi
ence for the first time.
With yashmak (veil) thrown bsck there
being only those of her own sex present
revealing a girl's pale, delicate looking oval
face, whose fascination lay In the large
hasel eyi-s and expressive mouth, she spoke
without hesitation in the purest English,
her low toned voice having but the slight-
est indication of an accent.
"I feel I should apologize to you ladles
for speaking In your own language." she
.said, "but I hare been commanded to speak
to you by an American lady and I am
accustomed to obey Americans, having
been educated at the American college for
girls in FcutarL
"First the women of Turkey must be
awakened to their need of education,
though thla Is necessary for the men, too,"
she added, smiling, "as they hsve received
slmost as little education as the women.
Then we shall establish head schools In
Constantinople with English and American
teachers, sfter which we shall have our
own Instructresses who will be sent to dif
ferent towns throughout the empire.
"For years the teaching of Mohammed
has been wrongly construed, but now we
shall go forward, giving justice to all as
we are commanded."
Haabaad Established Precedes.
This young girl, who alone among her
countrywomen In Turkey holds a college
degree and who also differs from them In
receiving occasional visits from men at
her home, was permitted by her husband to
spend a night at the house of an American
woman and speak to her friends, the only
stipulation being that no men should be
present. Here Is Indeed an Interesting de
velopment In Turkey's awakening.
But though a few of the women of the
better claaa apesk a little English, and
others, having learned French from their

LONDON, Feb. . (Special.) Horatio
Bottomley. eGUor of "John Bull," the
"Penny Truth," enjoys the distinction
of being Englsnd's foremost "lay lawyer."
He haa many law suits, and Is now Involved
In a gigantic legal scrap, the costs of
which promise to establish a record. Bot
tomley has slwaya conducted his own caaes
and. though pitted against some of the
most dlrt!ngjlhcd counsel of the English
bar, be haa often won famous vlctoilei.
He haa not systematic legal training, but
tnanaie , at eich trUl, to "bone up ' enough
information to win verdlcia from Jurlea
and praise from Judges.
Bottomley la one of the "floating finan
ciers" who promote Jig deals, and. natur
ally, his transactions do not Invariably
pan out according to anticipations. Occa
sionally disgruntled shareholders attempt
to find solace in the law courts, and thus
has Bottomley become the grest "lay law
yer" which, more than anything else, hss
earned his his reputation. Incidentally
he la also a member of Parliament, but In
stead of hia "M. P." being a distinction In
which he glories, he on.'y regards It aa a
trifling asset which enables bim to float
deala and accomplish financial achieve
ments. Bottomley first came Into public notice In
connection with the launching of a number
of big western Australia mining companlca,
and so successful were they that hs wss
sbl to Indulge bis journalistic propensi
ties by founding the "Financial Tlmea."
one of London's most successful Journals
He neat tried hia 'prentice hand at another
newspaper venture "Tne Sun" but It act
somewhat early in the weat and left Bot
tomley a wiser, but perhaps not a sadder
msn. The great and only Horatio la never
saddened by snythlng in particular. No
matter how thlnga appear to go against
him, he possesses ths faculty of "bobbing
up serenely." Though he has lost a num
ber of legal acttuna and has bad to pay
enormous costs, theae dlaasiera have Dot
deterred him from mixing again In legal
battles. Only a few weeks ago he hid to
fin of HJC0 for contempt, ewtag to
rltlctsra la hi paper, "John Bull," of
pending legal proeeedlnga, but a trifle like
this did not avea make aa impreaskm upoa
hia equanimity, much las disturb it. '
' By a singular euioetdeaae, the weekly
paper Bottomley adit aot krag ago pus-
llshed a huge poster which showed the in
terior of a law court, with several long
hosed and bewlgged barristers making a
reference to "John Bull." and praising It
for Its accuracy.
Bottomley Is known to the English rac
ing fraternity as a dead gsme sport. ' He
has won thousands of pounds on the rsce
trsrk, and. as a matter of fact, got Into
Parliament on the strength of hia standing
as a member for racing. After getting into
Parliament, he tried to Introduce a bill
against street betting. The House voted
asalnst the bill without a division,' and
Bottomley took his defeat with his usual
broad smile, which Is of the vsriety which
refuses to come off.
Another famous bill of his which made
much tslk when brought Into Parliament
was ons to compel banking Institutions to
disclose their "unclaimed balances." Ac
cording to Horatio, there are millions. If
not billions,, or even trillions, of dollars
which have been left by defunct depositors
hidden away In the vaults of various Eng
lish banks. If the figures represent sny
thlng like Bottomley's estlmstes, there
would be little use for new taxation In
England for many yeara to come. The un
claimed hordes would supply all the budget
deficits. However, this till has been more
or less quelched. Bottomley's Ideas of add
ing to the national exchequer are unique
If not altogether popular. He haa asked
the chancellor of the exchequer to tax thea
ter tickets, dice, horse racing, betting and
street advertisements, on the plea of broad
ening the basis of taxation, but so far none
of his suggestions have been passed.
