IN WOMAN'S WORLD The Smart Set wedding, of course. Miss Alice Poorman, who will be the bride, is to wear white. But Lieutenant Hoyt, who will be the groom, is to wear the uniform of an officer ef the United States cavalry. This is a splendid and impressive costume. Blue cloth, braided with yellow, epaulets fringed with gold and gold rc*T>es laced across the coat. An effect of yellow a...* gold at the saber's hilt and a cap (removed for the ceremony \ shoeing the cavalry colors again with more gold. All the ushers will be similarly splendid, and the be-, man. Not that this splendor is extraordinary for a military marriage. Other grooms of the cavalry (bridegrooms, of cot.rse) have introduced like magnificence at weddings'. The unusual thing about the Poorman-Hoyt wedding ■vrill be the insistent, brilliantly pervading yellow of the whole affair. Yellow roses, gold of Ophir and gorgeous yellow jonquils; prirarses, gladioluses and marigolds, and whatever else in yellow Jure floriculture offers. Also yellow gowns for bridesmaids. This is the point at last: The cheerful sacrifice of Miss Poorman , s maids, at least one of them, who has never worn yellow before in her life and knows she will look her worst. It is sheer courage—the courage of her devotion to the bride. Deliberately she is doing what other girls have declined to do. Some one asked Louise Blank if she was going to be one of Alice Poorman's bridesmaids, and she said: "Not for a minute. Can you see me in yellow? - ' Which was a conclusive answer, in spite of interrogation. It might express the sentiment of any girl with ash blonde hair or certain shades of red in regard to yellow. ♦here have been tragedies of green at weddings, and vivid pink has had its victims. Bridesmaids are inured to these. But yellow is so unusual and so altogether hopeless when it isn't becoming. Perfectly one understands Louise Blank, to wonderingly admire the girl who dares yellow for friendship. * * * * * * In notes sent yesterday to Uie friends of both young people the engagement •was announced of Miss Marion Miller and Bernard Ford, both prominent in the. younger sf><ial circles of thie city. All plans for the wedding are indefinite and it will probably not take place for more than a year. The bride elect is tIM daughter of C. O. G. Miller of this o.tty and is a sister of Miss? Leslie Miller" Her mother was a Miss Tucker. daughter of one of the pioneer families of Oakland, and her maternal aunts are Mrs. George TV. McXear, Mrs. Augustus S. MaeDonald and Mrs. Edward L. Bray- Ton. H. ML A. Miller is an uncle, and her cousins are Mrs. John Jerome Alexander Jr., who was Miss Albertine Detric , '; Ml(?s Elsie Detrick, Miss Ernestine MoNear, Miss Flora Miller and Christian Miller. During the last winter Miss Miller entered into training as a nurse at the Maternity hospital, where she remained three months. It was hinted at the time of h-er resignation that the three years of hospital duty, which Is prescribed for a ourse who is really in earnest, would interfere with the Impending announcement of her betrothal, but Miss Miller steadfastly refused to admit that any romance existed. Bernard Ford is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Ford of this city and is a brother of Sidney, Arthur Xorman and • Jeffrey Ford. He is a nephew of Mr?. «»eorge*A. Moore and is a cousin of Mrs. Arthur Geisler, Duval Moore and Kenneth Moore. * * * Mr. an* Mrs. J. A. McGregor have started for the east to be away several week?.

CN.Lathrop Ties Knot at "The Pines" In Qaremont OAKLAND. May 29.—Hiram W. Johnson Jr., eon of Governor Johnson, and Miss Amy Bowles were united in marriage thie evening at 9 o'clock, the ceremony taking place at the P. E. Bowleg home. "The Pines." in Claremont. More than 20» guests witnessed the wedding. The Bowles family is representative of the pioneers m California, the bride's grandfather, the late George W. McNear, being prominently identified with the iarly history of the state.< Among the close connections of the bride are George McNear Jr., Seward McNear and John McNear, who are uncles, a»d Miss Elitabeth McNear, who is an aunt. The bride's father is well known in financial circles. Two years ago at a reception at the Fairmont the bride made her debut and since has been a papular guest at the affairs of the smart set on both sides of the bay. Her education was finished in a seminary in New York. She has had the advantages of travel both in the United States and abroad. Johnson i 3 a graduate of the University of California and a member of the Chi Phi fraternity. He is established in law offices across the bay. After their honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Johnson will live in San Francisco. The extensive grounds surrounding the Bowles mansion were transformed into fairyland tonight by the placing of hundreds of incandescent lights through the trees and shrubbery. The spacious rooms were made into bowers by the wealth of flowers, which carried out a color scheme of pink. The bridal party descended the broad stairway as the clock chimed the hour, taking their places upon the lower landing, where their coming was awaited by the bridegroom; his brother. Archibald Johnson, who served as best man. and Rev. Charles N. Lathrop of San Francieco, who read the marriage service. The bride was given into her husband's keeping by her father, P. E. Bowles. Her gown was a combination of white satin and rare lace with pearls used 1n the trimmings of the bodice. The skirt was ftnished in a long train. Orange blossoms held in place the lace veil. Orchids were used in the shower bouquet. «. Preceding the bride were two pretty flower girls, Miss Sally Havens and Miss Mignon Wilson. Miss Gladys Wilson was maid of honor and the trio of bridesmaids were Miss Harriet Stone, Miss Anna Peters and Miss Ernestine McNear, a cousin. Miss Wilson's gown was of a paler shade of pini. than the other attendants, but similarly made. Pink crepe was used in the foundations of the robes, the paniers being of chiffon. Short pink tulle veils falling over the left shoulder were worn, a broad band holding them in place. Each of the quartet carried an armful of pink roses. Miss Marian Miller, who was to have been numbered with the bridal party, did not arrive from the east in time to take her place, although she was among the evening's guests. The uehere were George Bowles. Harry Coegrave, Laurence Lyman and William Dibble. After the ceremony an elaborate supper was served before Mr. and Mrs. Johnson left on their honeymoon. They 1 will spend the summer abroad. Four Personalities Joined in Marriage IF ONLY marriages could be contracted between two parties instead of four, how much more chance there would be for happy What do I mean? Let me answer your question yankeewise by asking if you have ever read what Oliver Wendell Holmes says about the confusion and misapprehension which are likely to occur among the six, when any two people are talking together. The "breakfast table" was as startled at his statement as you were at mine, and he hastened <o prov-c his sanity by explaining that these six personalities were: 1. The real John; known only to 3. Thomas' ideal John; never the real John, nor John's John, but often very unlike either. 1. The real Thomas. Three Thomases: 2. Thomas' ideal Thomas. 3. John's ideal Thomas. Now I think that the four personalities which join in every marriage contract are: (1) The real woman; (2) the woman the man expects to marry; (3) the real man; (4) the man the woman expects to marry. For instance, two young people who have been living for some months in the glamorous Maytime of engaged life, finally take their marriage vow?. By her hopes anil dreams, and by the glamor of engaged life, she has been led to think she is marrying — A being whose greatest delight, will always be to listen to her woes aivi tribulations and comfort her. A man who will never tire of telling her how much sweeter and more desirable she is than any other woman in the world. A man who will always consider her caresses and her approval the greatest happiness on earth, and her society the most blissful excitement. A proxy money maker who will remove all necessity for her ever worrying any more about things financial. , , •, , ( The man on the other hand has no doubt that the dutmil creature he is swearing to cherish is— _ - - I A woman who will always admire him above all other men, no matter how commonplace he may really be; who will see him tall, though he i-j short; handsome, though he is ugly; clever, though he is the most stupid of mankind. A listener who will be always eager to hear him talk about himself A housewife whose highest earthly ambition will be to have his food prepared just the way he likes it and keep him in every way comfortable. A manager who will make his income cover the needs of two a little more easily than it compassed the needs of one. And when you consider that after all, he is marrying an average woman md she an ordinary man, is it not strange that these four personalities do not come to grief more often? Is it not truly remarkable that we do not have more divorces instead of leys , Ruth Cameron I RTTTH CAHEKOH > 7 |9nVMHirHX LKADINC I Mason ™»eB MATINEE SATURDAY. Last Time Saturday Night.
