N INTERESTING bit of gossip
floats out from the region of the
playhouse occasionally. For in
stance, there isn't a maiden devotee of
the player world who will not bo inter
ested in Idah McGlone Gibson's recent
references to the beauty and worship of
"Kyrle Bellew Is, perhaps, the hand
somest man of this age. Added to per
fectly regular features of classic mold Is
an exquisite voice and a grace of ges
ture rarely seen In masculine personnels.
It Is very probable that more women have
sighed for Bellew than for any other man
on the stage. In the years gone by, when
he was the matinee idol of New York, he
was the recipient of bushels of notes from
fond and-foolish females of all ages and
degrees of pulchritude and pneumatology.
But there has only been one woman in the
life of Kyrle Bellew. Her unique per
sonality has made every other woman
seem banal to him. He simply does not
know that any other woman exists on this
earth. Ladies who have been with him
In his company say that while he is very
polite to them, he really does not know
that they are pretty women, to whom ho
might pay the little attentions a man
usually does to a woman.
" 'You might faint on the stage said
one young woman petulantly, 'and if you
fell against Mr. Bellew he would give you
all the assistance in his power; but if
you fell In a heap out of his direct vision
he would never know that you were

manner when visiting. Mrs. Potter in the
Summer. He treats her as a loyal servi
tor would his queen. When she enters
the room he rises, and for her is his only
attention and thought.'

"Didn't that hurt you, sir?" The clerical-looking

just been stepped on by a portly man who
was leaving the car.
"Yes, sir; It hurt very much." he said
"I thought so." said the' clerical man.

The closing function of the official sea
son at the White House, given TharBday
evening. In honor of the Army and -Navy,
was the most successfull levee of the
season. Nearly all of "the 3000 Invitations
were accepted, and the scene was a gay
one. with the uniforms of the men vlelng
In brilliancy with the evening gowns and
Jewels of the women, and gaily capari
soned diplomats here and there giving a
foreign touch to tho tout ensemble.
Tho blue flag with Its single white star,
which has been adopted as "tho Presi
dent's own," was gracefully used In the
scheme of decoration, with the emblems
of the Lieutenant-General of the Army
and the Admiral of the Navy, and the in
dispensable Stars and Stripes, also con
spicuously In evidence. A tropical air was
given by the cut flowers, ferns and foliage
plants that were arranged in convenient
nooks and corners, and a myriad of elec
tric lights gave the final touch that made
the effect in striking contrast to similar
occasions In the years when the Republic
was young, and the now beautiful East
Room was used as a drying-room for the
Adams' family laundry, while the Na
tion's guests were shown to the only fin
ished parts of the White House by means
of torches held by slaves along the line
As the evening progressed, Mrs. Fair
banks, wife of the Vice-President-elect,
found herself the center of an admiring
group, and quite unconsciously received
an ovation rarely accorded to any lady
In official life. She looked unusually
handsome in a blue embroidered crepe de
chine, garnltured with white lace and
diamonds, and ever and anon the careful
observer would see her old sweetheart,
the Senator from Indiana, cast admiring
glances in her direction.
Whisperings anent the coming Daugh
ters of the American Revolution election
are heard wherever Mrs. Fairbanks is
seen. These are coupled with the wish
that the laws of the society and her per
mission would allow her name to come
before the Continental Congress as her
own successor as president-general of the
National Society of the Daughters of the
American Revolution. The hall for which
she has devoted so much time during her
presidency is building well. It is ex
pected that the next congress will be
opened within its walls, unfinished though
they may be. The local chapters of the
society allow scarcely a week to pass
without being marked with at least one
entertainment for the benefit of the hall
fund, and frequently several entertain
ments are on for succeeding days.
In order to maintain their record and
Improve each shining hour, the Daugh
ters haye bought the grandstand on the
old Department of Justice site, nearly op
posite the White House, for the inaugural
parade, and will sell the seat tickets for
their building fund.

Tne German Embassy was the scene
of much activity on Monday afternoon,
when society was given Its first oppor
tunity to greet the Baroness von Stern
berg, since her return, from a trip to
Europe with the Ambassador. The Bar
oness Is a favorite in all circles, and
despite a slight lameness which neces
sitates the use of a cane, she is an In
defatigable hostess. She is also a much
sought chaperon, since her protege
made the most brilliant match of the
season last year.
She now has as her house guest her
younger slster. Miss Violet Langham,
of Kentucky, and, according to Dame
Rumor, anothor international engage
ment is on the tapis, with Miss Lang
ham as the central figure.
A fire of indignation has smouldered
for many moons between the dowager
chaperones and the young matrons of
Washington. The large number of dances
given during the season to which the old
style cbaperone is not expected, has add
ed fuel to the flame and now. comes a re
port of the stand taken by Emperor Will
iam 'concerning the proper chaperoning
of his son's fiancee. This royal encour
agement, promises to be the spark neces
sary to cause a social conflagration. Ef
forts are being made to have the matter
blow over until the beginning of Lent
when dancing events will be few and far
between, but at least one prominent ma
tron Is for open hostilities, and where she
leads others are sure to follow. Her young
daughters have already declined invita
tations to several house parties where
the only chaperon besides the hostess was
a matron of 20 years, and in other ways
the young chaperon is being frowned
