"With N this ring I thee wed in I love. and truth for life till , I death do us part." ' wan mis simple declaration of seventeen words, the sole btiidlng vow between man and wife, Miss Maudo R. Ingersoll, daughter of the famous unbeliever, CoTonel Robert O. Ingersoll, was united In wedlock yesterday afternoon with Wallace McLean Probas-co, who came from Ohio to claim his bride. The service was performed by Rev. Dr. John Lovejoy Elliot, assistant to Dr. Felix Adler of the Ethical Culture Society. It was according to the very simple rltjual of the Ethical Culture Society that the great agnostic's only remaining un-irarried daughter was married. Power to perform the marrlageisorvlceg after the custom of the society was conferred upon Dr, Adler by amendment of the domestic relations law more than twenty years ago. In 1902 the law was amended again to permlt"hn assistant leader of the society to officiate at wedding ceremonies. The lrgttllty of the Ethical Culture -marriage Is unquestioned. Thoug the bridegroom Is an Episcopalian, Miss Ingersoll insisted that the marriage rites established by the society, in which she is anenthustastlc worker, should be those used at the wedding yesterday afternoon. Dr. Elliot made a brief address, setting forth the duties and understanding of the marriage relation.1 He spoke no longer than thre. minutes. Then the bridegroom produced the ring, and as he slipped It on the bride's finger repeated, after the officiating assistant of the society the seventeen-word binding clause. Whereupon they klsseiL and Dr. Elliot pronounced them husbamJand wife. Appraises Clothing NEW YORK, Dec. 31. Vice Chancellor Garrison, whose wife is one of the handsomest and best dressed women of Hudson county, New Jerbey, set forth yesterday In the court of chancery, Jersey City, that the following was tlie''utmost extent to which a man could be asked to go !n supplying his wife with outer clothing: A suit $20.00 A coat IS. 00 1 pair of shoes 4.00 1 pair of corsets : 1 00 The utterances was brought out by the application of Mrs. George G. HOlton for alimony from her husband, who Is suing for separation. Her counsel exhibited a letter of credllt furnished her by H.oI-ton, In which it specified that she mltit not be trusted for clothing more expensive than tljat itemized as above, except for corsets, for which she was allowed $2. "It Is common, the court knows," said the vice chancellor, "for women to spend $75 or $100 for a suit of clothes with which to go to bridge parties and cause their sisters to turn green with envy. But It is no part of a husband's duty to provide the means of causing other women unhappiness. "I have seen plenty of suits advertised at $20 In the newspapers and In shop windows. I have seen those suits when worn by women. They have looked good to me and have seemed amply becoming. I havo seen women In $18 coats which looked fine on them. Four dollars will buy as fine and neat a fitting pair of shoes as any woman needs to wear. There Isn't a married man In the world who does not know, that for $1 corsets can be bought which will set off a woman's figure most engagingly. For $2 a really magnificent pair of corsets can be purchased." The vice chancellor said he thought Holton was treating his wife with the greatest consideration. Chinese Girls Arrive. SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 31 Attired In gowns of the latest American cut and wi'th picture hats surmounting their petite forma, the Misses Whang Jun Wha and Whang Lee Shlng, daughters of a Chinese general who distinguished himself in the late struggle for liberty against the Manchu government, were easily the belles on the trip of the Pacific Mall Steamship Company's liner Siberia, which arrived here yesterday. On account or the terrific storm that raged practically all the way -over from the Orient, the passengers had to spend their time In the great salon of the steamer. All kinds of merrymakings were contrived for Christmas by the Chinese girls and everyone took part in them. The sisters are, on their way to Holy-oke, Mass., where they ' will attond a seminary. They plan to stay In this country three years and then return to China to participate in the educational uplifting of the mass of the women there. By dint of close application at home the sisters have already become fairly adept In talking the English language. During the ocean trip they availed themselves of every opportunity to pick up strange words. The storm encountered by the Siberia one day out of Yokohama was one of the worst In years. The Misses Whang never before had been on an ocean voyage, but the other passengers were unanimous in declaring that both had proved rare sailors. Mountainous waves broke as high as the peaks of the funnels, forcing five of the lifeboats from their davits and ripping the sheeting from their slde3. Part of tho rati on the starboard was carried away, while for five days the mammoth liner was pitched and tossed about. The Whang sisters were accompanied by a brother, who will also go to school In this country. Tells .;iHvorce Plot" CHICACJO, Dec. 31. An elegantly dressed woman, much . at ease, recited calmly the details of what! stie termed a "divorce plot'! from -sv witness Btand In a Chicago court yestefday In a legal fight to win back a former husband, a multimfTUonaire, from whom she had ought and won. a decree of divorce. This woman, who seemed to havir a smile for every one the court, spectators, eounuel was Mrs. Grace 'Brown Herbert Guggenheim Wahl. The nmo Bhe constantly referred to as "William" whs William Guggenheim, youngest of Her appearance on the itue. slaud brought to( an end a serins , delays extending over a .period of : years on a p:tltlun of the much married and much T is generally and flippantly remarked that women cannot keep secrets, but every woman knows deep down in her, heart of hearts that she holds dearly many secrets that no one will ever root out. Intakes an intelligent woman to guard another's secret. But there are scores of women who hold m secrets o vital importance to others without a thought of the magnitude of their value. A man pays a woman a compliment when he confides his dearest secrets to her. It is human to sympathize, and generally a mfin tells his secrets for sympathy. Sometimes a man is clever enough to realize that a woman's intuition is better than his hours of reasoning, for deciding some vital question. ' ; There are few women who would divulge a man's secret, knowing the value he placed upon it. I have known women who held secrets that could be sold for millions, yef they would and have done so.. Few men can boast of a like act. , The women who cannot be trusted are the egotists, women who like to be' entertaining, whose, vanity compels them to add another wonder to any remarkable statement made by any one in their presence. Such women are a menace to' society. The dtfjsjforbiddjng members of, the German diplomatic corps to marry foreign women is an insult to Americans, and , suggests more than it expresses. For most oft the German diplomatic corps seek their offices for the opportunity to meet and marry" rich American ,girls, or they are married to rich American women whose ambition and money obtain for their husbands diplomatic positions. ; . That such women cannot keep secretscan well be imagined, for they are light minded, as a. rule,.-and are faithful to no country or family. ,"' ' Nature demands faithfulness.. to ona's native land, marriage demands faithfulness to one's husband; the combination is difficult-rand the beauty of peaceful happiness must be unknown. -. J,. A German woman, married to an American diploma!, would suffer in just the same way; she surely would be true to her fatherland. It's human nature to love your own country more when in a foreign land than you do at home. Do we not se it every day from the invaders who with smiles insult 'us? The keeping of a secret is neither a masculine nor a feminine trait, and I venture to say that a valuable secret is safer in the keeping of a good woman than in the keeping of a good man. K ' When- woman has a sense of honor, and all clever women have, they are adamant and men are not. . The German' decree is a gentle hint to Americans to keep their daughters at home. Ambitious women can dabble in politics here as well as abroad. And as for men? ' Remember: Our good Americans will match the world in honesty, bravery, and good looks. What more can women ask? SCHOOL OF E In an exciting ll-lnnlng baseball contest the senior Giants of the Franklin school managed to defeat the senior Ti gers by a 13 to S score. Yesterday's con-T test puts the nines on an even standing Tor the championSiilp of the school and tomorrow aftprnoon the deciding game will he played. The game yesterday afternoon was replpte with spnsatlonal plavs and the score was a toss up until the last man was out. When the Giants came to bat In the eighth Inning the score stood 8 to 3 in favor of the Tigers. A rally which netted three runs made the score hoard read 8 to 6 In favor of the Timers. In the ninth Inning with two down and one man on, D. .Jefferles slammed one out for a home run, tying up th score. That ended the scoring until the 11th, when tie Giants landed on the ball for five runs. The Tigers made a hard hut Ineffectual attempt to put over a couple of runs in their half of the 11th, hut to no avail. Batteries Giants. Bassett and Brining; Tigers, Boyer and Le divorced wife of the youngest of the seven smelter kings to have set aside a divorce granted her in Chicago In 1901. The chief basis of her contention was that neither she nor her husband was a resident of the state of Illinois. "After my husband left me," the witness began, 'T was called to Lawyer Werner's office. That was In 1900. "Did you meet anyone there?" she was asked. , "Yes, my counsel,' Mr. Werner, Dan Guggenheim and my husband." "What was said?" "Dan Guggenheim told me." replied the witness, speaking in an audible tone, "to go" to North Dakota and get a divorce." "Anything else?" "Well, he said he would not permit me to live "with William." "What did you say?" "I refused. Dan Guggenheim then said: 'Mr. Untermyer will-vtake -care of our side.'

Answers to Queries SUBSCRIBER The first thing I should advise a woman to do who wants to get rid of superfluous flesh Is to look well to her diet. It is hard to reduce one's flesh and few women are willing to give up the rich foods and take the exercise necessary to do It. No dried foods should be eaten V no rich greasy foods, no sweets, and! If you cut out the glass of water at' your meals you will find that you. will not want to eat so much. Eat " only boiled or roast meats, no pork, and, eliminating all dishes containing starchy foods, a distinct difference Willi be felt in welpht ina short time. Vegetables and salads should always form a part of the menu. Lack of exercise Is one of the chief causes of (obesity. A three-mile walk should be "taken every day and a five-mile walk 1s better. Any exercise In the open air Is good. A good exercise for reducing the hips and waist Is to stand on the tips of your toes and stretching the hands and arms up over the head as far nsynn ran and putting all these muscles on the stretch, then bending down at the waist and touching the floor If you ckn with the finger tips. A little practice will make this exercise easy. Rolling Is excellent for reducing the hips. I shall send you a dietary for reducing the flesh and the rolling exercise for redluclng the hips If you care for them and will send me a stamped, addressed envelope. DISTRRfeSEO Why do you neglect your hitlr so that it Is one mass, of tangles? The only way to get them out that I know of is to comb them out. Take a small strand of hair and grasp It as near the roots as you can, then comb the hair from the bottom up, being careful that you do not break the hair. PLANNED FOH With the assistance of the supervisor (St playgrounds, George E. Dickie, superintendent of the Oakland Playgrounds, Is arranging a May-day festival, which will consist of the customary May queen celebration and a demonstration of playground activities. There Wtfrbe championship hasplmll games between the playground teams composed of boys and girls. Basketball contests are also scheduled for the day. Volley ball will be among the sports. 1 One of the plans of Superintendent Dickie Is a general field meet of all the playgrounds, In which track events will be run off by the champions of each playground, hotlt boys and girls participating. More interest Is being shown in folk dancing and several new national dances will be introduced In the playgrounds before May Day, when the dancers will show their skill before the spectators. Another feature which tends to make the May Day fetes more popular Is the extension of the neighborhood movement. There are two large municipal cluba In operation at present one, the first In point of age. In the Mosswood clubhouse, and the other, of later origin, In De FTemery Park. , WANTS BOSTON TO AIDJGRAND OPERA BOSTON, Dec 31.
