' - No atage celebrity of recent years baa
had a mora romantic career than Edna

unrecornlied amonf the membara of
the ohorua when aha first essayed the
state as a career, taking- London sud

failed, to sea anything out of the usual

and now the bride of the owner of mil

- who was a famous bicycle rider that
la ' the history of Edna May's Ufa In
one sentence. : .
; Miss May's name when aha was a de
mure and unknown little chorus girl In
New Tork was Edna May Petty.' She
was horn in Syracuse. New Tork, where
her father was lettercarxler.. When
aha went Jon the tago.. she was glad to
get a aaJktryof 1 a week. A few
years later she signed contracts for 1600
-and $1,000- a- week, and had scores of
suitors from rajahs , or India to heirs
of British dukedoms, from the chappies
of Piccadilly to bank clerks of Thread
needle street. At least one man , had
committed suicide because of her, and
she has had a house In Regent, street,
it villa in Bt' John's Wood,' and an es
tate In Scotland. --v. ' Nv , t-
' V Karris; BleyoUrt. - :
Fred Titus was the Uttle phorus girl's
first adventure. ; He was a famoua bi
cycle rider in those days,, and when she
met him he had Just won the hour reo
: rd at the Springfield meet They were
married In ISIS and lived In a little
flat In Harlem. Titus opened a bicycle
shop and Edna went to music and danc
ing lessons. She was a singer, and from
singing in church she was led to take
a little part In a show at Hammer
stein's, and later A chorus part in "The
Belle of New Tork" at the Caclno.
' One night ner chance came, and ber
demure beauty made the part of Violet
Grey good enough for . the best' She
sailed away to London and the "Salva
tion Army -Lass" -captured the hearts of
the Britons, and Fred Tltua lost his
bride. Time ran on, and the new life
that had opened to he. was so different
from that to which she had been ac
customed that the bicycle rider did not
seem fit In It She wrote a book and
had teas with countesses and dinners
with dukesv. She drove her own horsea
and w. aumaaoned ' to the. presence of
the king. So the world was not sur
prised- to learn one Way that Edna May
bad applied for a divorce. Her husband
and his family vigorously opposed the
application, 'and the ease - dragged
through the court for years, -being
finally -decided about " two years ago.

Mother and Child. '
i Sometimes , mothers ' feel ' that they
do -not fully answer the childish de
mand for companionship and though
their wish may be sincere enough,'
they are conscious that the eager baby
mind needs more than they are giv
lng of the romance of' fairy lore and
the close bond which draws the child
to nature. Let such a mother not lose
heart for It only requires a little pa
tience with one'a self to grow Into the
child's world and be able to see with
bis eyes. Such books are helpful as
The Fairy Land of Science," and "Sea
side and Wayside." Not to read to
the young child, of course, for his
stories must come at first hand to be
Interesting to him, but the mother by
suon reading may come to a fuller ap
preciation of . the needs of the child's
mind and be able to find a groundwork
xor ner own imagination.
It Is beautiful to see the world
through the eyee of a child. Bo one
gets absolutely original Impressions
and the mother Is losing much of the
sweetness of the child's earliest years
who has not cultivated this point of
view both, for ber own sake and for
his. Everything Is Interesting to the
little philosopher who is trying to find
out what kind of a world this la that
he has tumbled.. Into, and a morning's
walk with a child who has not been
cowed Into servile conformity through
the mistaken notion of some unwise
trainer Is a series of fresh, vigorous
and delightful experiences.
A uttle help from the mother or old
er friend will not be- despised, how
ever, If the older one Is In sympathy.
Let her look at trees, for instance,
from the child's point of view. Here
Is a great oak. Isn't It like a kindly
giant? See how strong It is. Don't
hamper the youngster's mind by tell
ing how useful wood is. He doesn't
eare a snap about wood: he loves the
great strong tree Itself and the birds
and squirrels finding shelter in Its
branches. Then here is a willow droop
ing over a stream. This Is tha fairy
princess, and she Is looking for her
prince who Is a river spirit and who
baa gone away on a long voyage of
discovery. What wonderful things be
111 have to tell her when be cornea
Show the little one the maple Heeds
already showing their form and shape
before the Uttle blossoms have dropped
and the hasel nuts swelling into form.
ready for the chipmunk's winter food
As the child arrows older he will look
and. begin to discover for himself, and
will perhaps .corns upon some truth
which will be of great benefit to the
world. If not that at any rate he will
have always a close and familiar ac
quaintance with the outdoor world and
will . cling to the recollection of these
early walks and talks when all nature
was so fresh and wonderful. He will
always be glad xf the, insight Into na-

Since then Oscar Lewisohn has .dwelt
at will either In New York, London or
Paris. As a man about town, as a club
man and the owner of a crack racing
stable, he became as familiar a figure
to Broadway as his elder brother,- Jesse
Lewisohn. It la said that Mr. Lewi
sohn'a family raised a storm of disap
roval when he t mounced his Intention
to marry Edna May, but as be is now
secure In tne possession of his share of
his father's" millions, the young man
can afford to ignore these protests. It
Is interesting to note, by the way, that
Miss May has followed the example re
cently set by several other famous ac
tresses In marrying a man whd is quite
lew years younger, man herself. ,

Here Is local evidence to prove It: '

ready to recommend them Just as
strongly as I did three years ago." '

Roosevelt's Sarcasm Wins.
When the president could first be so
called at bis home in Oyster Bay the
men who write were there In numbers,
and not one of them was satisfied with
less thsn a column a day about the
Roosevelt children, and It la betraying
no confidence to tell hew the president
put a stop to It He Invited one of the
reporters out to the hill and asked blm
if he would not send out the following
1 called upon tho president today
and lie told me that his oldest son,
Theodore, had gotten op very early in
the morning to gather minnows in the
pond. When be had a bucketful he went
out into the bay and with these se balt
caugni a wnaje. " : r ,
"The next two boys found tbeir
father's hunting guns and In an hour
and a half they killed three mammoths.
As you were leaving -you saw one of the
children setting fire to the rear of the
house, and the baby was tearing down
the windmill," ... . '
As the president was quite serious
about it and wanted the story printed,
it was. Every managing editor in the
country saw the exquisite sarcasm of
the story, and the telling of the doings
of the Roosevelt children stopped. Tele
grams and. letters came to the corre
spondents that they had better watch
the depot and the docks for the coming
and going of visitors of Importance.
It is to be hoped that the president
will not be pestered this summer with
the attentions of too many of the fra
ternity who write of his doings, some
thing that In Itself Is not offensive to
him. It is certain, however, that the
docks and the -railroad depots will not
be left ' unwatched by the enterprising
collectors of the news.
