H^ene Magnalo Savasta, the famous “beauty” of Paris, thought she uas going to have a nic^ quiet little smoki in among the friendly pipes nnd'airshafts of the steamer Rochambeau, iust before landing' in New IVork. Why did that horrid photographer have to come along and find her out end show her to the great American public ? But Mile. Helene can smHe even when peeved. There are rumors that all the dental creafti companies In the United States are fixing up contracts for that smile. The movie directors are not worrying at all. They know that the^mile already belongs to them. That’s why she came acros the Atlantlo—to put her smile on the silver screen, ^o you see. mademoiselle is much mor& serious than the picture indicates. She wishes to follow an artistic career, as her father before her, who is a well known composer In Paris. Little French Orphans Cross Atlantic Alone A few yeans ago. Miss St. Clalr*ts relatives did their best to tempt her to go to college, but the young Kdy cared more for the practical ShaUs- pere than the theoretical. Romeo and Juliet were corking—on the stage; and If she wanted to read them . . • Wetl, why should she waste her time In a musrty school? She could do it at home j^st as well. The bright lights of Broadway called, and Miss St. Clair's pretty ears didn’t Ignore the summons. Some say thaf*iKer dimples didn’t attract much notice until she appeared on the stage as a specialty dancer in "The Rainbow Girl.” They may bt wrong—probably are;, but J.he fact re mains that the dimples came into prominence the very first night -^ho flitted behind the footlights. A\hen she %mlled—and she did, most of the time— they simply couldn’t keep away. (lets Fortune by Going to College You *know what a dimple's like. Some girls are lucky what dimples are like. Marguerite 18 one of these. When bfauty was given out, she was ftn awful hog-took enough for three or four girls. And the beauty’s going to college. Of course, almost to college to make $75,000. Yes, $75,<J00 is the amount. ' Getting paid for learning! Isn’t It rich! Rich or not, seventy-five thousand ($75,000) Isn’t to be sneezed at. Or sniffed at, either.

Manos, the consort of King Alexander of Greece, through a morganatic marriage, has found that Lupid anibhis crowd have stacked the cards for her. If she can’t be a queen— and that hasn’t been formally decided yet—she’ll be an ace. As far as the King is concerned, anyway. They were married last November, and arc now in Paris.

Before that she was just bNs. Van Valkenburg of'New York. They say* that titles have an appeal to American women and the late Alphonse Duke of Oporto’s title had many appeals. And tb?^ American woman who accepted his title was sai<!^ to be the most “proposed-to” woman in New York a few years ago. ' Now as the Princess of Braganza It is said she Is on her way back to visit America. “Why! I’m of realold New England stock and I love America! And I ve always thought American men were perfectly splendid. A girl runs a great risk when she marries a foreigner.” Thus was she quoted as saying on the night when she was manied to Phllp Van Valkenburg, the New York lawyer and millionaire. Their marital happiness was not long lived. “A nobleman of a friendly power doing relief work near a particularly g.o- tlve volcano rescued ts fafr Amqriclan lady doing similar work from an emba- rasslng situation last week.

At that time the duke'^as 52 and Mri Van Valkenburg SS.Tlils was an extract from a society newspaper of Rome They both denied they were the ones referred to in the paragraph. However, tho romance did follow and Mrs. Van Valkenburg became a princess. The late Duke of Oporto was a bachelor with an lr«''cjne barely able to supply his ne'^as. proud of a line of ancestors that ran ufibrokenly back to the ^ear li>94, expatiated like his ex-king ner’.iew Manuel. She was a widow and a divorcee with a fortune of $10^0g0,000, the adored of a score of notable’suitors. ■=How=‘ Did Collars Originate? It Is Ju’st JOO years since the collar came Into being as ^ commercial proposition. It has been suggested that the necklace of teeth or claws or string of beads with which our early ancestors adorned themselves was the foreirunner of the modern collar. The earliest pictorial proof of the u’se of the collar proper dates from Elizabethan times, when the ruff was the principal form of neckwear. After this gold and silver vellum fringes were the fashion for a considerable period, these being supplanted by collars similar to those worn today, save for the fact that they formed part of the ’shlirt. But this arrangement •was an extravagant one. As soon as a collar was soiled the shirt had to be shed for washing purpose«. ' This state of affairs w&'a changed a century ago by one Hannah Montague, a blacksmith’s wife. She had a bad time with her husband’s washing, until one dfiy she was struck by the brilliant idea of separating the collars from the shirts. The next morning the blacksmith went to work In a collar that tied with strings, Ifistead of being fastened, as before, to the neck of his shirt. From this simple Idea sprang the collars we wear today. \ rresefitlng iht King, and his morganatic wife. This is the first picture of lung Alexander of Greece and his consort to arrive in the United States. His Majesty was caught while strolling along the Parisian, boulevards. However, he was brave under the fire of the camera, and offered no objections to having his photograph tal^n. \ The lady with him, Mile. Manos of Athens, though married to the King, is not recognized by the Greek Parliament. In their marriage, they have both been very brave. Mile. Manos endured the scathing criticism of her compatriots, for the sake of her love; Alexander risked his throne. The young woman is a daughter of the common people; her father was formerly a colonel of the Palace Guards. The wedding took place last November,-and •was the culmination of a lifelong romance. Ever since childhood, they had been sweethearts; ami tlia-klng, in marrying, gallantly offered t'<# abdicate his throne rather than be separated from the wife he 'had chosen. Objections were made; and, in order to escape the storm of criticism, Mile. Manos left Athens and went to Paris, where the king recently Joined her. In Greece, royal blood alone can accede to the throne; but at present there seems to be a remote possibility that tho precedent may be broken. In the city on the Sflne, the tMfO lovers are awaiting parliamentary action which will delermlne whether Mile. Manos becomes Queen of Greece, or remains merely the official consort of the King. “Birds of a Feathejf” Shed Plumage for Gen.

When she said yes, father cried because we must be separated so long—until we ai© grown-up young ladles. We are trying be sad ourselves. Everyone is so kind to us! But New York Is growing very tall and big as our steamer comes up the harbor, and we do not know a soul in America! We will not stay In New York long, for our Journey is not yet ended.

It Is pure science. And it may mean that Ijefare long we shall bo able to e«)lode a mine or fire a battery in Constkntlnople by pressing a button In London. Alarm bells can already .be rung by wireless at a distance of !(» miles, ard the Marconi Company la about to fit Captain Alban J. Roberts recentlj gave an astonl'shlng demonstration at the London Coliseum of control by light and sound vibrations. When this is further developed it may rank as No. 2 of thq new wonders. His invention was used secretly during the war in capturing énemy submarines, and consists of directing objects at a dls- tance by throwing lights on them, projecting 'sounds In their direction. or ships with ths necessary apparatus. Reverting to war devices the Ameri­ can “flying torpedo” sugge'sts the third wonder. It is in effect a miniature aero­ plane, without a pilot, which after It has started on. its journey drops its chassis of its own afcord, presently discards its wings, and' becomes a bomb. Its present range 1« 400 mile’s, and its altitude SOW feet. Before It is launched In the air It can be set •with «nfailing accuracy to any point within these limits. The photographic or visible telephone may be Included as No. 4, When this is perfected it will be possible to telephone to a person at a distance and see Jiim while he la talking to you. Radium will be responsible for another wonder, but one hesitates at this- stage ta predict the precise form. Periodically, one atom erupts five particles In succession. In proportion to the eruption of a fierce active volcano, the radium erup­ tion is a million times more violent. This comparison is sufficlenUy suggestive to show one aspect of radium’s vast possibilities. The old seven wonders Include the hanging gardens of Semlramfs at Babylon. Amorfg the new may be a hanging city, the forerunner of others, in which members of the qvercrowded earth will take up their residence in the sky. It will probably be a development of the aerial station. A bookstall will appear: a shop or two; then offices and houses— l4 Is easy to vVnalize the development. And what should be Included as the sevehth apd last wonder of the future r Harnes^ug the tides, photographing, sound, houses run entirely by pressing button« and pulling levers, mechanical men to work for us? Progress has been made in all of these. At the left—Eva Marks. ^ At the right—Margaret Chapman. At both left and right a basket of red feathers. And Minnehaha laughed no harder than these two Chicago girls. Lots of fun, these conventions. They were 4- right there on the job handing oi|t crimson plumage to supporters of (General Leonard Wood. And they didn’t even hesitate to give them to those who weren’t his supporters. And the general will admit that they were two of the best campaign supporters he had. Electrified Fish FreSh After Seven Years Four pounds of fish for elghtpence 1« a purchase which would make the housewife think pre-war conditions have returned. Moreover, a meal of this fish would be all the more en^yable by reason of the fact that all bones are removed. An Englishman, Frank Croft, has been experimenting in the preserving of fish for yeara past. His systejn embraces the use of elec­ tricity and hot air, and he has now in his possession fish that he cured se%'en years ago, which can be served at table with all the freshness and flavor it pos- dessed the day it left, the zea. Afttr passing through Mr. Croft’s process the fish em®rK«8 as hard as a rock and as dry as a hone, and so long as it Is kept from moisture it remains unimpaired in quality and indestructible. Three days* immersion in water, however, restores Its freshness. Carrying his experiments further*Mr. Croft found that the dqled Qsh can be milled in special appajatus to a fine powder.
