Gilbert, who was Miss Bessie Ryan before she was married In New York City Sunday evening at the Hotel Belmont by the Rev. H. M. Warren, the Hotel chaplain, returned to her home In this city this evening and received the blessing of her parents. "I have always been fond of romance," said Mrs. Gilbert, "and the fact that I adopted a method of getting married a little out of the usual or A WORD FOR THE Society to be quite perfect must show deference to the older women, must pay Its homage to the grandmother. She can give It what no one else can treasures of experience, a fund of Interesting memories and the dignity and benignity of well-spent years. In one of James Lane Allen's delicately sympathetic romances of Southern life he Introduces three charming figures, each beautiful In its personality, each dowered with a surpassing loveliness. The three women stand together outlined by a master hand. There is the debutante in soft and tender unfolding of the bud; beside her the mother exquisite In a fuller bloom, and next her the grandmother with silver hair and un-marred grace, the consummation of the rose. They who fancy that society may safely be given over to the care of immature youth, they who ignore the exquisite charm of beautiful age, have not well learned the lessons of letters or of life. Society at its best must be a reproduction of the world. In the world three generations are always moving together, interweaving, Interchanging, taking a hand in the game, That Is an Ideal society in which we Cnd each In its proper place, as the page of the poet dreamer the debutante, the mother and the grandmother. 4 CAW YOU TELL IF A GIRL WEARS SILK ) I u CTrkrifiMszc dm tuc hiiiv cue mrni ire (r i " CHICAGO, June 13.--The question of whether a man may Infer the presence of silk stockings and French lingerie from the swish of an obstreperous petticoat became a paramount issue yesterday In the trial of Mlsa Mary Wlghtman, accused of embes-kllar $1100 from her former employers, the Hapgoods employment agency. W. Foster Burns, manager of Hap-good a' Chicago office, testified early In the trial that Miss Wlghtman, who bad worked for the firm as a cashier at $10 a week, had spent the amount h la said to have taken In 100 days.

"I have traced comm inicable diseases from one 'darling' to another. Some time ago influenza swept through the school like wildfire. Every student had it. Only the men teachers and workmen escaped. "I warned every mala instructor that symptoms of Influenza In him would be cause for instant diaoharge, because I knew that his illness could coma only from the osculation which had apread the epidemic among tha girls. "With theaa faota before us, I offer tha following resolution, with the hope that where my endeavors to cheokthe practice proved futile tha action of this powerful aasociation may destroy it: "Resolved, That it ia tha aenaa of the American Medical Aasociation that kiasing in female opllegea ia responsible for the spread of many' diseases, and should be discouraged." "This action, if it should be taken," said Dr. C. H. Iron, of New Orleana, with a smile and a drawl, "would have no perceptible result. You can't change tha course of affection nor its customary expression by resolutions. Tha little love god will laugh at all we can do to atop kiaaing. Let's be sen sible, and confine our efforts to methods of crusading' that have a chance for auocess." In' the laughter and applause that followed tha resolution waa lost. der Is simply a realization of my desire to do something romantic. When I left home I had no Intention whatever of getting married, but when I met Mr. Gilbert in New York a mutual desire to marry overcame us and we consummated the deal In short order." Mr. Gilbert did not come to Allen-town with his bride, having returned to Bridgeport, where he is engaged in superintending the erection of a gas plant.

"He admitted under erees-examination that he never had seen her underwear or her hosiery. He eaW he had been disturbed by tha rustling of her silk petticoat.

Cupid's germs have been located In the Alameda County Receiving Hospital, a place that seems Immune from ail germs with the exception of those directly pertaining to emergency cases of painful injuries. The quiet, innocent looking Institution run by the county down on Franklin street, between Fourth and Fifth streets, Is the home of the germ that Sets the heart throbbing and creates business for the house on the same block, where the marriage licenses are procured. The poor self-respecting looking building presided over by Steward Harry Borchert can hardly be held for such a horrid thing, but it is really, so and the genial steward himself cannot deny it, for Just yesterday afternoon he stood up for his friend, John J. Sherry, and Martha Davis, whose courtship began about four years ago In the little hospital on Franklin street, where Sherry called on his beat when policeman in that neighborhood and his bride was there as a nurse on cases that required special attention. MEET AT PATIENTS SIDE. , The little meeting in the hospital at the side of an injured patient appeared unsuspicious and probably the nurse aad the police officer thought nothing of It at the time. As days and months grew Into years, pretty auburn-haired Martha Davis was frequently called to the bedside of the Injured and Officer Sherry dropped in as usual. The pair became fast friends and lit j tie beknown to the hospital attend-ants, their friendship developed Into such a mutual affair that soon suspicions were directed toward them, and bye and bye the stewards and matrons began to think the germ had originated in the hospital that some day would prove effective. Their forecasts were not mistaken, however, for yesterday the culmination of the Cupid germ really happened when the Sherry-Davis nuptial was celebrated at the groom's East Oakland home. Rev. Sanborn tying the knot that made the nurse and her officer sweetheart man and wife. Just a few friends of the family were present in the pretty home that was profusely decorated with flowers and an exceptionally beautiful bell of roses that hun over the site of the wedding ceremony. Steward f'HaiTy I v Borchert of the Receiving HopItaU was the best man, while Minnie Suth erland, an old chum of the bride and a sister graduate from Kast Bay Sanatorium, was the bridesmaid. LEAVE ON HONEYMOON. After the wedding a bountiful dinner was ready for the few family acquaintances and immediate friends who were present. At the conclusion of the dinner, Mr, and Mrs. Sherry left for the Vickey-Bartlett Springs, where they will spend a honeymoon of about two weeks before returning to their East Oakland home. "Jack" Bherry. as he Is always call ed, Is a deputy Sheriff under Sheriff Frank Bar net. Sherry came under the list of new deputies that was allowed the sheriff by the . new County Government Act passed by the last Legislature. Since his appointment he has been acting . as a night Jailer with hours from midnight until I:t0 o'eloclf in the ; morning, but now that he Is married, Mrs. Sherry will probably see that Sheriff Barnet gives her husbandJ a position where he will have his entire nights at home, j - -;7 .r :' ., The groom is also a popular member and vice-president of the California Tacht Club which he has been connected with since .
