NEW YOUK state's total gain in popu'a- , tion in the past 10 years was 899,003, and the figures relating to the towns and cities above 4,000 show a growth of 939,886, Those larger places thus absorbed the whole population increase, and drew 80,000 more people from the rural sections. But the five cities of Now Yoak, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse gained altogether over 721,000, or nearly the whole total increase for the state.

Miss Charlotte di Zerega. the bride, ha* a distinguished air, well suited to the traditional requirements of noble dames.

She is rather above the medium height and has a slight figure, which carried her wedding robes with enchanting grace. Miss di Zeraga is onlv moderately supplied in her own right with silver coinage, so this international match may fairly be described as one of those rare affaires du cceur which sometimes cheer the monotony of matrimonial barter.

The children were dressed as Venetian pages in costumes of brocaded white satin embroidered svith silver and Rhine stones. They also wore white silk stockings and very pointed Venetian shoes of white satin and silver. The wedding dress was made in Paris and will not be worn again until Lady Frankland is presented at court, probably at the queen's first drawing room in February. A beautiful diamond tiara was worn by the bride, the gift of her grandmother, Airs, di Zerega. The four bridesmaids, Miss Mary Barron, Miss Grace Sneliing Miss 'Madge Clarkson and Miss Mamie Furman, all exceptionally pretty girls, wore dresses made in the ancient Venetian style. Tney were of a rare and exquisite shacle of tur'quo iso blue crepe de Chine, slashed with pale pink coral chiffon. They were girdled with sashes of crepe de Chine of the same color, which fell over simple demi trained The hat, collar and muff are of gray vel •'et, ornamented with numerous gray birds with black heads. The hat is crownle&s, and in fact consists of little more than a broad brim and two or three birds. Nothing more chic can be imagined. Ah exqusiie tea gown is of crepe de Chine, embroidered with Hymen's torches in gold. Ottoman silk forms a portion of the gown, and chiffon in soft folds appears about_ the throat. The design, which is more intricate and dainty than usual, was made by the bride. Another bewitching tea gown is of pale coral_crene cloth, lined throughout with rabbit skin. It has a high Russian collar and deep cuffs and is girdled at the waist with a heavy cord and tassels picked out with silver, and altogether is a most sumptuous and comfortable looking garment. Still another tea gown, very original in design, is made of an Arab sheik's cloak. It is of China silk, with a band of woven g^ld^n the bottom and a pointed decoration in the same material on the back, it has long loose sleeves over tight under sleeves. A reception dress- is a combination of turquoise, blue and black. The collar is of point de Venise and the buckle of Rhine stones, An afternoon reception dress is of green and black shot heavy silk, with a design of three feathers in pink, and bodice richly trimmed with embroidery of passion flowers in pink and gold. Skirt of emerald green velvet and shot silk. A dinner dress of heavy bangaline silk, color petunia. It is made with a deep empire sash of cloth of gold, richly embroidered in jewels. The train is plain and very long. Sleeves made to the e'boiv are ornamented with a band of jeweled embroidery. Another dinner gown is of salmon pink and "vert d'eau" brocaded satin, trimmed with silver embroidery and lace. A rich ball dress with train is made of deep salmon pink brocaded damas—the design on damas of crescents. The front is ot pink tulle richly embroidered in silver, and the bodice is of damas artistically trimmed with silver embroideries. A beautiful dinner gown is made of turquoise blue brocaded danias combined with deep salmon pink satin, embroidered with turquoise and gold. A superb dinner toilet is of yellow damas and satin, trimmed with rich lace and embroidered in fleur de lys design. It is made with a high Medici collar of lace and sleeves to match. Around the bottom of the dress is a deep band of lace and embroidery. A very smart street dress is made of the new color, "lark brown." It is of cloth and velvet, trimmed with fur and braided in gold a 1' officier. A superb set of Russian sables is included in the trousseau besides several sets of less costly fur. Mips do Zerega has but one Lonnet in all her skirts finished with u soft gathered rffiae. The very picturesque hats were made with broad brims and were of turquoise blue velvet trimmed with pink ostrich feathers. The bridesmaids carried silver prayer jooks, gifts of the bride. The ushers were Messrs. John C. Furnan, Richard di Zerega, De Peyster Liv- ngstori, Augustus Clarkson, 'Harry Le Grand Cannon and Lloyd Warren. Mrs. di Zerega's gown for the occasion was of electric blue gros grain, combined with blue crepe de Chine. It was embroidered with turquoise and gold and had a bonnet to correspond. This toilet ema- nently became Mrs. Zerega's still youthful face and figure. The following is a list of a few of the wedding presents: A diamond tiara, fleur de lys in design; silver repousse coffee and tea service, a largo silver urn, a diamond brooch, designed as a spray of KSS leaves; a massive oblong silver bowl, u diamond crescent, a repousse silver bowl, tin exquisite miniature pin, set in sapphires and diamonds; a heavily chased and fluted silver game dish, a pair of massive silver candlesticks (old English), a set of royal Worcester coffee cups, a pair of gold salt cellars, with spoons; a large repousse silver writing deek, three silver fruit dishes, open work design; u richly carved George III. pen tray, three silver (repousse) boutonniere dishes, and a richly inlaid ormolu clock, old Dutch style.

The coa to bo worn with the dress is tight fitting and notched on the edge in squares, these squares being outlined with silver braid The turned over collar is of soft chinchillt fur. A blue velvet hat trimmed with fur, and having a loose crown and mediuii sized brim, completes the costume. One of the richest gowns in the trousseau is of gray poie de soie, copied from the old court picture of the time of Loui XV. The skirt has a demi train and is ot plain velvet. The coat is richly embroidered with steel. This glittering metal niurkd the seams, covers tht large pockets and, in fact, spreads over the entire garment. Even the velvet sleeves are dotted in the same manner. The flaring collar is arranged so that it may be opened if worn in tho evening and closed for a day reception. Soft white frills of Mechlin lace fall from the sleeves and gracefully ornament the throat. Another gray dress suitable for carriage wear is of cashmere, with ornamentation of dull silver on the waist mingled with the velvet. Two shades of velvet are em- . jf -la, elaborate warclrabe. As neither bonnets nor hats are worn to the theatre in London and hats are in good form for afternoon receptions, even this one bonnet may perhaps never see the light. Almost the entire trosseau was ordered in Paris last summer while Mrs. de Zerega and her daughter were abroad. The bride is an only daughter, and every luxury has been lavished upon her. The underclothing is of very fine lawn and embroidery or of China silk and lace. Some of the work has been done at the convents during the past few msn/hs. The wedding stockings are ornamented with point lace, and all the textures used are exceedingly.!™ and fairylike. A certain portion of the wardrobe was ordered to be sent from Paris directly to the new home of the bride in London. The newly married pair will spend the honeymoon in Canada with relatives of the bridegroom. Two or three weeks will be passed at the home of the bride's mother before the final departure is made for England. Nearly a thousand invitations were issued tor the church.

That must be the reason that the mother goes with the young until they are nearly two years old.

According to the practice at r,i-R B ent nun. sued it is administered in doses varying for adults from fifteen to forty-five grains.
