THE tPJP£U MS .MQlNJS lO WA» WEDNESDAY, JULY 12, 1891 FOURTH AT THE FAIR. A Crowd Unpnrnlelled in the History fo America. The fourtli of July at the world's fair was a marvel. What a day it was for the exposition and for America! Where in the peaceful history of our country can be found another celebration so majestic, so picturesque and so inspiring as the one in which over 300,000 men and women participated in Jackson Park Tuesday night? The crowd was itself perhaps the most interesting exhibit on the grounds. Not a drunken person was to be seen and that the crowd was made up of the better class of people from all sections of the country could be no better told than by observing its good nature. Even with such a vast assemblage every person had plenty of room Until it came time to go home after the fireworks display. Then, for the first time, the transportation companies were baffled. It wns 2 o'clock in the morning before the last person got aboard the last train leaving the grounds. Although women fainted, unfortunate children cried, etc., etc., everyone felt the necessity of keeping good natured, and they did as they lelt they should.

TROUSSEAU OF THE DUKE OF YORK'S BRIDE. It Includes Eighteen Bonnets, Sixty Parasols and an Incredible Number of Gowns—Wealth of Pretty Lingerie Trimmed with Lace—Boudoir White and Gold.. (London, July 0.—The marriage of the duke of York and Princess Victoria May of Teck, took place at 12:30 o'clock today in the Chapel Royal, St. James palace. The Avedding was attended by a large gathering of the members of the British royal family, continental sovereigns or their representatives, and many members of tlie highest nobility. A more splendid day has seldom been seen In (London. The occasion Avas made one of national rejoicing, and a partial British holiday. Tlie .royal party left Buckingham palace in four processions, the first conveying the members of the household and distinguished guests. The next procession Included the duke of York and his supporters, the prince of Wales and «ie duke of Edinburgh. The bride cine iu 'the third procession, accompanied by her father, the duke of Teck and.he'r. brother, Prince Aloplras of Teck. The last procession was that of tlie queen Avho, accompanied by •the duchess of Teck, her younger sous and the grand duke of Hesse, drove in state to the ceremonial. The archbishop of. .'Canterbury, assisted by the other dory performed the ceremony, the bride being given away by her father. The bridesmaids Avere the Princesses Victoria and Maude of Wales, Princesses Victoria Alexandra and Beatrice of Edinburgh, Princess Margaret Victoria Patricia of Conuaught, Princess Victoria of Schles- AA'ig-Holstein and Princess Eugenie. After receiving congratulations, the duke and duchess of York left Buckingham palace, driving through the Mall to the city and thence proceeded by the Groat Eastern railway from Liverpool street to Sandringham. The lord mayor and sheriffs met the neAA'ly Avedded pair at St. Paul's cathedral and their progress through the streets Avas .i most triumphal one. Princess May is about 25 years old, the groom being about three years her senior. Ten years from now today's bride will probably, in the ordinary course of events, have taken her place as the Princess of Wales. And twenty years from noAV, unless the Prince of Wales happens to be as long-lived a.s Queen Victoria, the Princess May may be installed as queen consort on the throne of England. The Princess May does not belong to a Avealthy family. Her mother, Mary Adelaide of Teclc, enjoys an income of £5,000 a year, or $25,000 of our money. But this sum is largely used in the visits that tho Teck family have to make every year to Windsor and in journeying to and fro, when there are state draAving-rooms, memorial services, corner-stone layings and weddings which require tlie presence of all the royal relatives at court. The AA'ork of getting np a trousseau out. of the family funds has been a serious one; quite as serious as is experienced by many an American girl with only a feAV hundred to spend, instead of the Teck thousands. Nevertheless Princess May's trousseau is really as fine as Avas that of Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein, about which there Avas sucli a fuss made two years ago. There nre eighteen hats, caps .and bonnets. The hats are sailors, shade hats nre looped Leghorns, to wear Avith light summer dresses, and are designed only for the A'isit which the Princess May will have to make upon the queen during her August stay at Grassc and for the little trips to White Lodge, where May Avill, no doubt, often go to spend a quiet day or tAvo Avith her mandate, these shade hats, sailors aind mother. According to the latest Paris fancy straws are all of a tint to match the goAA'ns. For example,, there is a straAV hat of fancy braids. It is entirely of mauve, and its trimming is a very large Ixnv of mauve ribbon figured in gold and mixed AA'ith yellow satin rosettes, Another hat .is of pale pink straw, AA'hich is to be Avorn with a pink-figured satin jacket, made in what English modistes call "Tudor" style. A light blue straw, a pale green sailor and a deep green folt hat, looped with rosettes of cardinal, are among the prettiest of what may be called the negligee hats. By far the most numerous of tlie head coverings are the bonnets. It is not considered good form for a royal princess to appear in public in any hat [ess dignified than a bonnet, no matter whether the season bo winter or summer. Like the princess of Wales, Princess May has chosen very tiny little bonnets to Avear on all occasions Avhen she appears .before the people. And though they make her seem a little older, she has added velvet Strings; AA'hich sho ties in a matheinati- isally precise- little bow right under the dimple in her chin. The bonnets are of different colors to match different dresses, But they are all veiy tiny and are worn well back of the "half-bend baas" which distinguishes the princess of Wiiles from all the other royal ladies. The 1 •'ncess May is very fon'd of mauve jT'id violet. She is just blonde enough to wear these colors well. In her trousseau there are twelve mauve gowns. One is what dressmakers call "a lily gown." A lily gown is a dress made of soft India muslin. It has si great many ruffles around the shoulders and sleeves and a fine fall of lace. Tlie shoulders of a lily gown look vorj broad and the waist very small. The other mauve gowns are of more substantial material, though all are, as far as possible of English make. The Princess May considers her new India shawl, her India silks and her India wrap to be of English make, because Inidia is tributary to England and all Will be in her domain some day. Five very fine velvet gowns have court trains. These were ordered on account of the expressed wish of Queen Victoria, that May would provide her self with court dresses, so that she could assist at the drawing-rooms at which the Princess of Wales has of late been too delicate to be present. The Quet'u desires that the healthy young princess shall bear a part of the burden of royal entertaluUag, and, with that end in view, has herself presented the wedding gown, so that May might have all the more money to spend upon court dresses. Princess May's boudoir In her apartments in St. James palace is furnished in Avhite aiud gold. As tlie young bride Avill receive the wedding calls of her royal'cousins in tliis room, she has, AVitli rare taste, provided herself Avith half a, dozen very lovely hou.sc dresses Avhich are half tea, gowns and half negligee. There is a. little rumor afloat among those Avho knoAV the Teck household, that like Miss Alcot.t's Amy In Little Women, the Princess May has used the arts of her paint brush upon ordinary black kid slippers, transforming them in turn into slippers golden, silver, bronze and tinted. All the slippers Avere on exhibition one day to the princess of Wales, and the next day the sunny-tempered May carried a load of them in her little pomycart over to the duchess of Fife, who has been an Invalid ever since tlie birth of her last baby. The Princess May has a great deal o. A lingerie, and it is all trimmed with lace. Much of the trimming she has done herself. Before "Lady Aberdeen's girls" left Ireland to Avork in the. Irish village at the Avorlds fair they helped in the making of a large piece of Irish linen, which Avas. to be soiut to the Princess May for tlie fashioning of tlie dainty underclothing and lace-trimmed house Avaists, of Avhich sho is so fond.. Along Avith the gift Avent 500 yards of line lace. The lace was of the kind known as presentationi lace, and is, Avith the Limerick lace, the finest that comes .from Ireland. Both of these gifts are meant as Avedding presents to the Princess, and are given in this form because the imVustrions Irish girls Avho made the lace are not, Avealthy and haA'o found it. easier to give in this Avay thain any other. The people of Wales have presented a gift Avhich, Avhilo not exactly a part of the trousseau, plays an important part in the AvcddiuR. It. is a Avedding ring of Welsh' gold, from the Merionethshire mines of Wales. Prince George has receiA'ed the gift, with thanks, and thft nuptial knot Avill be tied AVitli it. From Australia, there has been sent to the princess a. great lump of sold, out of Avhich sho is to have cast a parasol handle of "solid" gold, and also the stick for a feather fan. The one all-black coaching dress is relieved by sleeA'es of black and Avliite A r eh r et,AAath a deep fall of pearl dotted lace. And the two AA r hite gowns arc giA'en a street appearance by having sleeves of a heaA^y material and a fichu of silk, which is brought around the neck and crossed upon the bosom in Marie Antoinette style. There are three summer silk carriage, dresses which are provided Avith cloth capes heavily embroidered In colors to match the dresses, Alnd with each of these is one of the small bonnets, which match the goAvns in color. In the matter of parasols tlie Princess May is very rich. "The Avomnn Avho has the largest Avardrobo In the world,' .according to a gossipy report, has forty parasols. The Princess May has sixty. All of these, or nearly all, AA r ere made to order, and are coA r ered with tho some material as the goAATis. The lighter of the parasols are cwered with silk Avhich is then draped AA'ith lace, of chiffon, or loops of ribbon. Tlie women of the 1 northern part of Canada 1 • asked permission to give as a Avedding present a large number of fancy pins for the hair. These are set with jewels, and each pin will be in- closed in a fine velvet box of its own. The Scotch linen mills turned out one hundred of the) finest handkerchiefs, which are so gauzy that six can be draAvn at one time through a lady's Avedding ring. And from India there came a case of silk stockings and another of silk petticoats of almost priceless A T alue. In the center of one of the largest rooms of tho Princess' apartments in Rt James' palace there has been built a large case for holding the wedding presents. The case has a wooden foundation, Avith glass sides and a glass top. Into it will be put the wod- diner presents that are not In use and certain pieces of the wedding trousseau which are so valuable as to be real curiosities too fine for every-day wear. For example, there is a handkerchief of linen and lace which is valued at .$500 of our maney. THE GAME OF WHIST. History of a Pastime Which Has Developed From a Small Beginning. Like all gomes of tha intellect, whist has gradually developed from small beginnings. It had its origin in triumph or trump, sometimes called English "ruff, and honors,'/ a gam.e so early as tUe sixteen^ century I N EVERY Re- *ceipt that calls for baking powder use the "Royal.'* It will make the food lighter, sweeter, of finer flavor, , more digestible and wholesome. "We recommend the Royal Baking Powder as superior to all others."— United Cooks and Pastry Cooks' Association of the United States. PEOPLE OF PROMINENCE. Young John Austin Stevens, Jr., «f New York, has apparently lost no taste by LIs remarkable claims for conipen* satlon in connection with the duke oft frequently, mentioned by the writers of the time. The word trump is derived from triumph, meaning simply a triumphing conquering curd; and in the simple form in which tlie game lirst existed it was natural to give it this name expressive of Its most salient point. Afterward, as it improved and developed, demanding closer attention on the part of the player, it came to bo called Avhisk or whist from the old English word meaning silent. We lind tlie word, for example, in Ariel's sour' in "The Tempest." Como unto these yellow sands And then take hands; Courteied when you leave, and klsscd- Tho wild waves whist. A more appropriate name .could scarcely be found for a game which requires an unusual amount of calculation and reflection, and'which must' therefore be played in absolute silence, j Though very popular throughout Eng- \ land during the sixteenth and seven-1 tcenth centuries, wlilst had not attained any degree of importance and was rather scoffed at by Hie Hue folks; being considered a country squire's game. In 1728, however, a number of gentlemen, who were in the habit of assembling at the Crown coffee house In Bedford How began a scientific, study of /the> rural amusement and soon discovered its latent possibilities. Then a few years later .the famous Edward Hoylo published bis "Short Treatise on Whist," and the gajne speedily became established in Hie favor of the fashionable world. The London coffee houses adopted it to the exclusion of >the old favorites, quadrille, spadille and piquet, and it was the rage at Bath and Tumbridye Wells. Eighteenth century literature gives us delightfully amusing pictures of the gay society of the day, in all of which whist plays Its part. In "Tom Jones" we lind a description of a rubber; and in "Three Weeks After Marriage," a bright little farce whicll was produced ••• iin- whole, plot turns-upon a -"»nite quarrel between a .newly made husband and wife about the correct play at a certain critical point in a game of whist. The lady insists that "the diamond was the play;" the gentleman declares that "the club was the card against the world," and the discussion waxes so hot that the romance of the honeymoon is entirely destroyed and oven their wedded happiness seems in danger. We can only hope that the modern interest in whist may not be productive of such dire results, and would therefore advise all young married people, as they value their domestic peace, to eschew the game until they have thoroughly tested each other's tempers. The present time may bo considered the renaissance of whist. I-Ioyle, after having been the supremo authority for more than 100 years, is now superseded by "Cavendish," who Is also an Englishman, and who has adopted this imposing noin do guerre to conceal the less stately appellation of Jones. U. B. Trast Is an American authority of no small importance; and the American leads have been incorporated by Cavendish with, the English game, so advantageous does he consider thorn. | In his book, "Whist Developments," I these leads, as well as the unblocking' system, are thoroughly explained and are necessary subjects of stiidy to the! player who has already mastered the fundamental principles of tlie game. So intricate is the modem system of signals and leads many of them being profoundly logical and others purely, arbitrary, that one needs to exercise, the memory and reasoning faculties to '< an unusual degree in order to become 1 a player. For this reason Avhist is 1 rapidly coming to be considered almost' as necessary a means of mental discipline as the classics and higher mathematics, and is taught with equal seriousness in some eastern schools. Would it be fair to suggest, however, Uiat dame fashion perhaps gives a keener • impetus to the pursuit of this special branch of knowledge than pure love of intellectual development? (.Masses in whist were first formed in Boston (of course) some ten or twelve years ago, when Miss Maud Gardiner, daughter of the, ex-governor of Massachusetts, took pupils in the game, at the suggestion of some friends, in order to help her family through linancial diidiculties. Her enterprise proved successful beyond her wildest hopes, and she kept up a busy and lucrative practice until her marriage with one of) Boston's millionaires. Since then teachers of every grade- of ability have! cropped up In different cities and, for' the most part, have found the profession a paying one. It is not yet overcrowded, and certainly seems to hold' out many inducements to women who I are thrown r upon their own resources, j 08 \t involves no panual Jabor a: " Insures -' " ture, faculties, and an inexhaustible fund of patience are the requirements. i As a solace for old age which is said to bo nm-qnalal, grandchildren are generally supposed to be the props for one's declining years, but I believe it is conceded by old AVhist-lovcrs thitt their favorite game is more satisfactory; it is quite ns interesting and absorbing, and is lacking in certain disturbing characteristics peculiar to tho young of tho human race. "You don't nkow Avhist!" cried Talleyrand to n young man who cxpiessod conteinni. for tho game. "What a sad old a-o is in store for you." Yes, the sore and yelloAV leaf is not Avhmt it once Avas.

Remains of the Dead Actress Will Rest Beside Those of Her Father. New York, July 0.—The remains of Mrs. Gcorgie Drew Barryinore, the famous actress who died Sunday in Santa Barbara, Cal., will be brought east for interment. Maurice Barry- moro was in Long Branch Sunday. He was notified by telegraph of his wife's death and came at once to this city. He went at once to tlie Sturte- vani house, where he met Mrs. John Drew and Air. Sidney Drew, the mother and brother of the deceased. After some consultation it was decided that Mr. Barry more should' go west to meet the remains, which friends in Santa Barbara bad been instructed to have embalmed and sent cast. Mr. Barrymore left for Kansas City. It Is probable that the. interment will be in Philadelphia, where Mrs. Barrlymore's father is buried. This point, however, had not boon definitely decided'. Mrs. Barrymore's death, while it was not .unexpected, was sudden, and the news caused mainy expressions of regret among members of the dramatic profession, by whom sho had been greatly admired and esteemed. Mrs. Barryinore was with 1 William II. Crane for a number of years before she AA'as engaged by Mr. Frohman. Her first apearanco under Mr, Froham's management was in Mr. Wilkinson's AVidowsi, Avhcm that piece was lirst produced in the fall of 1S90.
