A large blue hat of the same shade, with nodding blue plumes, was exceptionally becoming. She carried white carnatons. Mrs. Burns MacDonald Mac-Donald was matron of honor in a rich gown of panne velvet, and wide hat of white lace and roses. Her bouquet was also of white carnations. Frank Owen acted as best man, and Rev. William Kirk Guthrie of the First Presbyterian church officiated. of-ficiated. t(5 Ov t5 A merry time followed as the wedding party enjoyed the delicious repast which was served to all, and Mr. and Mrs. Hart departed in a shower of rice and good wishes. After the honeymoon they will occupy apartments at a down-town hotel. Those present at the wedding were: Colonel and Mrs. William MacDonald, Mr. and Mrs. Burns MacDonald, Mr. and Mrs. A.

Herbert Younger and Frank Owen. tv 3v tV A sample of metropolitan humor which strikes us as rather flat, is this story told in a recent issue of Town Topics, purporting to have a local interest in its telling: Were the origin of the word "bridge" not known, one might easily suppose it came from the game being used to "bridge" over the Lenten season, sea-son, for never has it been more rampant in New York society than it is at present. Now and then a little humor is introduced to relieve the seriousness serious-ness with which it is taken by its devotees. For instance, last week a woman's bridge club held a meeting at a fashionable house, and the thirty-nine women present were told by the hostess that Brigham Young, being in town, had asked the privilege priv-ilege of playing with the club that day. A few of the women thought it best to put in a modest protest, pro-test, so that they might go on record as anti-poiy-gamists, in case their husbands heard of the affair. af-fair. But when, soon after the game was started, Mr. Brigham Young was announced, they forgot all about their prejudices and began to take an interest in-terest in the very good-looking, small, slight man who entered the room. The interest was increased when they discovered he was an excellent player; indeed, he played so well and coolly that he won a prize, although he could not help but feel that the whole time he was under the fire of forty pairs of female eyes. & Brigham Young made so pleasant an impression impres-sion that even the protesting women came to the conclusion there might be some good in polygamy for other women. It was not until the game was over, when, surrounded by the forty women he was taking "a dish of tay," that it was discovered he was not after all the son of the late Prophet of Salt Lake City. One woman thought she had Bj cn Mm beforo, and ho owned up tkat ho had B passed himself off as Brigham Young because ho m wanted to see how a club of women played bridge K wj1St, whether it was true they fought and pulled Hi hair. The plot having been bared, he further K confessed that he belonged to the New York Whist B Club and had taught bridge to the Londoners. Hi Francis Dana Winslow, of the. University Club, B wag the culprit, and his hostess was particeps H criminis. B J 5 B The esteemed lodge of Masons has a good one Hi on the poor old Tribune, and incidentally, funny Hi enough for those outside of the order to laugh B about. For some reason the name of Goodwin Is H obnoxious to that broad-minded journalist, P. H Heath, and orders have been given to the Tribune H staff to the effect that the men in a certain Good- H win family shall not be mentioned in the Tribune H columns, a highly appreciated compliment. There H happen to be two Judge Goodwins in the city, H hut the reporter who attended a certain meeting H of Masons was not wise to the fact, so In his morn- B ing story, the evjnts which transpired at the meet- H lnS wer0 recIted in order, but the speech by Judge B Goodwin was omitted. H But it was the wrong man, and the Masons K and one or two others grow mirthful when tolling H of the error. H to to to K It is understood that the engagement of that K pretty young lady on Brigham street to that Hj young mining operator is soon to be announced. H It Is thought that the announcement has been H withheld on account of the old man's objection to B his son marrying a Mormon and the objection of B her father to the suitor being a Gentile, but the B little god who fixes up these things connubial has B won out, and the marriage will be one of the early B events of the summer. And they're the cutest B looking couple you ever saw. B & & & B Back-stairs gossip is always interesting to those B who must employ the village domestics, and 1 B neard a lovely story the other night. A certain B sreen effect in kitchen ware is employed at a B fashionable home on the Bast side. The day be- B fore the departure of the Twelfth, the door bell B rang suddenly, and the verdant one answered the B call. Someone entered, and then the cook lady B bellowed from the bottom of the stairs: "Say, B M,ss , there's a fella' here t' see you." Then B she retreated toward the dining room, where the B young lady's mother was waiting. B "Who is Daphne?" she asked. B "A fella t' see Miss ." B "Where is he?" "In the parler now, but he come in a hearse." Subsequent developments proved that it was K Daphne's first sight of an army ambulance, and there was a limit to her primitive knowledge of vehicles. H $ & & Miss Jasmine Young has returned from her vis-H vis-H t to Miss Ruth Kirkpatrick, Zinkand's, Techau M Tavern, The Poodle Dog, Bab's, The Palm Room M of the Palace, and the place where Hildebrand M brings in the long shots. Miss Kirkpatrick was hostess at a number of entertainments given in her honor, and she has roturned with many a California rosebud in her cheeks. to to to Miss Elizabeth Buford, who has been variously entertained during her visit here as the guest of Mrs. Babcock, has returned to her homo in Nashville. Nash-ville. Miss Buford is a charming girl, and one of the most popular visitors who ever came from the "Soouth." But like most visiting girls well, will there ever be one who isn't already engaged before be-fore arriving in these valleys of the mountains? & t That the Sunday dinner at the Kenyon is becoming be-coming more and more popular all the time with the swell set, was demonstrated again last Sunday Sun-day by the large number of people of that class who partook of the principal meal of the aay at this hotel. The dining room was crowded from the time the doors were opened until they were closed, and among those present were many of the best known people of the city. The efforts of the management to make the Kenyon as popular with the home people as it is with travelers and regular reg-ular patrons of hotels are meeting with great success. suc-cess. The Kenyon dining room is one of the best in the city and its popularity is the result solely of merit. ' & t & Who was the beautiful stranger in the box with the Jake Moritzes on Thursday evening? She was the subject of more than one pleasing comment. com-ment. & t " Evidently Miss Eliza Curtis does not confine her efforts to the creation of original valentines, her latest work being a handsome portrait in oil of Neill Officer, the little son of the Robert Officers. The picture Is on display in a window of the Ley-son Ley-son company. & Col. and Mrs. Wall celebrated their silver wedding anniversary the other evening, entertaining entertain-ing half a hundred old friends at their hospitable home. t8 je & The Russell Schulders are at home to their friends at the Knutsford.
