1 i If I With Tea Spoon and Hammer. B 'Slfl Tired of Harry Lehr's monotonous stunts, and B imi il ' tlie desenerate pranks of several other monkeys, B ' llf'l I tne fashionable ladles of Newport have become B I iff if I color blind, and Mr. and Mrs. Pembroke Jones are ill I entertaining Joseph Laftin, a colored gentleman, l I and the white society women are crazy about him. I I It is said that this handsome fellow (for he is B yitll r described thusly) is the center of attraction at B Hi lt' ' every yachting party and cotillion, and that the H -ipf. fl ( ' ladies, marrie'd and single, are giving correct iml- H ,$ .fl j ' tatlons of the village Desdemonas. He speaks B H ill ' a lanS"age or two, and has a personal charm,. B fill i but llis Pnysilue ls hls greatest attraction. With B " ' )? I i ' ' v Newport starting the game, society elsewhere H i 1 1 i ! V must follow. Come in. the water's fine. B ifirrrl s H ? 1 $ II Tliat was a uncli of clever verses in "Truth's" B 1 fill ' society lead last week clipped from Town Topics ,M'1; S i i without credit. H V$ 1 1 ' ! H I II j j An event which has caused a great sensation H L 1 1 5 ' . in society at St. Paul, Minn., was the departure H Hfmll of one of the most popular St. Paul belles, Miss B If II i Mary T. Sturgis, for Washington to b'ecome a Visi- Hj III tation nun at Georgetown. Miss Sturgis is a sis- H t JF i ter of Captain Sturgis at Douglas and belongs to H I 4 j ' a notable army family, her father being the late H ill Gen. S. D. Sturgis. She was a social leader in H f the Minnesota city, a charming and very bril- H life j i llant woman. She has dramatic talent of a very H M high order, and at one time thought of going on B I flM j ' the stase-lit stase-lit Stiil B ill!' Tl ' I More litigation is threatened for the Fair M 'J J heirs, says Town Topics, and no doutit there will B l! In! Ii ! ' e nteresnS developments it the case comes to B'f r! i i trial. Thd alleged will .of the late Charles Fair, B ' If f 1 mailed by some unknown person in San Francisco B r I ' I to the Proa;e Judge of that city, gives the names B J ! !i I of Capt. I. W. Lees, formerly Chief of Police, and B j ji 1 W. H. L. Barnes, once a prominent lawyer of San B I 1 1 Francisco, as witnesses, both of whom are dead. I II The document is dated April 21, 1901, and be- 1 i'8 queaths to Charles Fair, Jr., $800,000, to Joseph 1 Harvey $500,000, sums to charitable institutions 3 , and the remainder of the millions to his wife. Bl!l "ftt was s-a:ed soon ater his ueath by the auto- iSU lJlif v8 mobile accident ia France, that Charles Fair had lit i ' an illeSitimate heir in San Francisco, but who m II f f f v the mother is has remained a mystery. The Nel- B w 1 I sns received $250,000 as a compromise, and now m I I II I ia ey ave threatened another suit, saying iV 1 I ftP i tha" ey dd no recerve enough, this strange con- I'iisil t test has been brought forward. It is believed by l! 'fill " some that the Nelsons know something of the 1 II!! ' threatened suit, for the wife of Fair is named as Hi if ! ' the inheritor of almost the entire estate. The B I ! f ' ' Nelsons are now taking testimony in New York, B:,;,'Wh! and are trying to prove that Fair was killed first, in which case all of the estate will go to his widow, from whom the Nelsons will inherit the $5,000,000. The signatures to the alleged will are remarkably similar to the writings of the late Captain Lees and the lawyer Barnes, The Fair attorneys say that they are anxious to meet the contestants, and will prove that the so-called will is fraudulent; also, that the supposed child, Charles Fair, Jr., is spurious. 5 w O Eastern society has issued an edict against the giving of handsome favors, and it is to bo hoped that people all over the country will follow the good example. The strife to outdo one another in this way is certainly a most vulgar display. Along thes lines, wasn't it in good taste for the Dick-sons Dick-sons to place "No presents" at the bottom of the invitations. There are so many who would like to, and can't, that that is a graceful way to relieve re-lieve the ombarrassment. (f t&v & The Dickson-Schulder wedding is the center of social attraction for next week. It will take place on Wednesday evening at St. Mark's' cathedral ca-thedral and will be followed by a large reception in the Knutsford parlors. Another pretty blonde, Jasmine Youn, has been invited to be a bridesmaid. tv v tv The Sunday Sun of Manila, P. I., in "a recent issue contains a true yet unrecorded account of a Salt Lake globe trotter who soon returns to gladden any number of hearts and incidentally to become a business man under the guidance of the man he used to employ. Under the caption of "Who's Who In Manila," the Sun says: Freed, Ellis C: Ex-Manager of the Union Truck company, who returns to God's country on the S. S. "Ismaila" today. It wasn't very long ago that Ellis was born. The great event occurred oc-curred on November 4, 1880. Scqne: Little Rock, Ark. And great was the rejoicing thereof. Even the tin roosters on the church steeples crowed in honor of the glad occasion, and rumor has it that Freed, pere, bought wine for hie friends down town, a most unusual thing for him to do. Little Ellis had the measles, mumps, chicken pox, and other ills of childhood and emerged triumphantly from the battle to strut about in his earliest trousers and ogle the little girls at school. At the age of eleven he decided that Arkansas did not deserve such genius and removed to St. Louis, Mo., taking his parents with him. Here he attended a private school and learned to chew gum. Even Missouri palled upon the youthful Freed after a few years, and he again struck for the West, finally bringing up with his parents at Salt Lake City. No, is not a Mormon at least not so you could notice it. Finished his education in Salt Lake and went to work in Pa's furniture store. The smell of the varnish made him sick, however, and he left the home nest for Dallas, Tex., becoming connected with a grocery establishment. Tried to palm off a yard of tripe on an old lady who had come in to purchase pur-chase a bath towel, however, and hit out over the truckless wilderness for Chicago. Liked the town, but met with no response. Back to Pa and Ma in Salt Lake again, and struck town just in time to join the Utah volunteer Cavalry. Was unfortunate in not getting farther than San Francisco Fran-cisco and the Yosemite valley. After some further fur-ther time spent in mercantile pursuits came to Manila to accept a position with the Union Truck company, arriving in October, 1902. Ability and energy soon won him the position of manager, and under his regime the company has easily led its competitors. The concern changing hands, Mr. Freed leaves for the United States today to I go into business with his brothers in Salt Lake City. Returns via Singapore, India, Europe and New York. A member of Salt Lake lodge, B. P. O. Elks, and the Elks club of Manila. A clever and enterprising en-terprising young man, who will be sadly missed by the many friends to whom he has endeared himself by his sunny disposition and fidelity while in Manila. The Philippines can illy afford to lose Americans of his calibre. & The French naval officers in port are being rushed by society as they were never rushed before. be-fore. It will be hard for them to break away from this port. Miss Genevieve King is one of the most popular of society girls abroad the Pro-tet. Pro-tet. The Frenchmen like her because she speaks their language so fluently. She has studied several sev-eral languages and speaks them all well," and I believe that she loves books more than society. The commander of the Protet is the most interesting inter-esting of all the French officers because he is a widower and therefore an eligible. The girls have made a great fuss over him, and he likes being H lionized. The above paragraph is from Town Talk, and will be of interest to a large number of Miss King's friends in this city, where she has visited Eleanor Dooly a number of times. t ( That was a nice stunt of Dave Burley's taking a carload of friends to Boise Sunday night, and returning them in time for the ball at Ogden. It is understood that this little party was the first of a series and that suits a lot of people. & & & Ned Greenway has been in town for a week. His only fault lies in the fact that he doesn't stay here longer. He is .such a slave to duty, however, that he has to hurry back to Frisco they can't do without him long down there. & & & The composite function given at Ogden on Tuesday night in honor of the visiting Irrigators was a howling success. With a ball on one floor, a smoker on another, and a banquet mingled with a fizz duel on the third, there was joy enough for every one until the early morn. It was the most brilliant social event ever given in the history of Ogden, and all the credit is due the citizens of that city for I understand that the Senator from Montana, who was supposed to be the host, put up not a penny. & & The Rob Walkers, the Ned Ferrys, the George Topliff and Memmie Read returned from their Idaho invasion yesterday loaded down with relics of the chase. " fc? t v5 Mrs. W. W. Rivers entertained at a delightful luncheon on Monday in honor of Mrs. E. S. Mur- ray. Sunflowers were used most effectively in the decorations, and the place cards were painted with yellow blossoms. The luncheon was a very beautiful affair. w t The wedding of Miss Edith Ferry and Lieut. Merrill will take place October 21st.
