The secret of unfading loveliness has
been discovered by an American woman,
says a writer in The London Mail. She
had become weary of the monotonous
process ot applying an artificial bloom to
her cheeks day after day, so when in
London she went to a "fashionable tat
tooist"and asked him if he could tattoo
"a nice, healthy color that would stay
there all the time."
The artist in pigments was startled,
but said he would try, and proceeded to
experiment on his own ankle with a pig
ment about the color of rouge, and after
a week of close and careful observation,
he succeeded in obtaining the exact tint
for facial application. He furthermore
discovered that it was necessary to grade
the coloring, and by repeating the pro
cess over the pigmant already inserted,
he was able to secure a perfect imitation
cf the glow of health.
The American then returned, and to
her great delight was informed that if
she was still determined to go through
with the operation, tne tattooing could
be successfully done.
"Even then," said the tattooist after
ward, "I was very nervous about it, for I
knew that if it was a failure nothing on
earth could ever remove the evidences of
the blunder. However, I yielded to per
suasion, and set to work with the finest
needle I had, and some carefully pre
pared color. How closely I watched the
effect of every insertion ot the pigment
and what a state of anxiety I was in un
til the second tattooing had been fin
ished, I shall always remember; but the
result was a success beyond anything
that either of us expected. The Ameri
can looked at herself in the glass and
went away delighted beyond measure
with the cleverness of her own idea."
One of the fads at eastern resorts is the
affectation of announcing brilliant func
tions, where the most elaborate prepara
tion possible for the size ot her house or
her purse has been made by the hostess
for her guests, as little affairs. A "small
dance' means as many hundred guests
as may be crowded into a ball room, and
a "little dinner" includes at least one
One of the recent fads of society wo-,
men is to have gardens made upon tables
in dining or drawing-room. These gar
dens are not merely collections of flowers
in pots, but consist of exquisite minute
living models. '
The trees employed are the wonderful
dwarfed Japanese oaks, yews and maplee,
which at the age of fifty or sixty years
frequently are not more than a foot in
height. Tiny Alpine flowers of various
species are used to till the two or three
inch flower beds, while the turf lawns
and grass walkB are represented by bright
green Liliputian moss.
In many cases owners of parkB and
gardens in the country are having sec
tions or tnem duplicated in miniature for
the drawing-rooms of their London resi
idences, a costly proceeding, and one
necessitating unlimited care, as the de
viation of an inch from the plane would
throw the whole garden out of propor
tion. Waterfalls and streams two or
three inches in width may be made to
meander under 'four-inch bridges and
through towering six-inch bamboo plan,
tations. The only item in these minia
ture gardens in which the sense of pro
portion is lacking is the HBh which swim
about in the streams and lakes. The
smallest fish available is a goldfish an
inch in length, but this in accordance
with the scale is much larger than a mac,
a state of things which, despite fishing
stories, does not exist in the fresh waters
of Great Britain.
The marriage of Miss Pauline Maude
Oakley to Mr. Frank King Clark at HoI
Trinity church on Thursday evening,
brought out the smart set in large num
bers. The young and th6 not so young
were out in force, wearing modish gowns.
The bride was regal in a French gown of
lace, and the bridal veil was of the same
beautiful material. The beautiful ma-tron-of-honor,
Mrs. Thomas W. Griffith,
the four bridesmaids and the flower chil
dren lent a pictorial effect to the scene.
The ushers were men with grace and ease
of manner, and their courtesy contributed
greatly to the enjoyment of the occasion.
The color scheme was white and green.
The chancel and altar were banked with
palms and white carnations; the rood
screen also was covered with ferns and
white carnations. On the screen were
hung wedding bells of white carnations,
while on every pew was an immense bow
of white ribbon and a wreath of aspara
A pretty reception followed at the
home of the bride's parents. Above the
hign. green hedge surrounding the
grounds were hundredb of Japanese
lanterns enclosing electric lights. The
bride and groom received the guests
under wedding bells of white carnations
surrounded by a bower of green. The
walks and driveways leading to the
house were canvased in white, and here
many of the guests danced to the strains
of Hagenow's orchestra, which was
stationed on the upper balcony. From
this balcony, amid the strains from
"Romeo and Juliet" the beautiful bride
threw her shower bouquet to her girl
friends below. The bouquet was caught
by Miss May Burr amid 3houts of ap
plause. At the rear of the lawn was a
tent in which the bride's and groom's
cakes and ices were served from an im
mense round table laid with lace and
garlanded with green. In the centre
ot the table was a tree of asparagus fern
surrounded by bride's roses. The table
was lighted by Eix silver candelabra, and
the tent by Japanese lanterns. Coffee
and lunch were served on the lawn in
bowers made in the shrubbery.
The wedding gifts were displayed in
the dining room on tables covered with
white velvet. The gifts were numerous
and very beautiful, consisting largely of
cut glass, real lace and silver. Tho
groom's gift to the bride was a magnifi
cent ring of diamonds. Mr. and Mrs.
Clark will sail in a few days for Paris,
where they will make their home.
Mrs. and Mrs. J. W. McDonald gave a
luncheon and porch party Sunday even
ing in honor of MisB Oakley and Mr.
Clark. The table decorations were of
La France roses and the ices were in tho
torm of pink hearts with a small cherry
on each. Champagne punch was served
later in the evening. The guests were
Miss Oakley, Mr. Clark, Mr. Whedon of
Chicago, Mrs. Griffith, Cadet Owen II.
