At that time there we Are assembled a number of theatrical managers newspaper n in and friends of the area Street company nil awaiting the arrival of the famous actress. At Twenty minutes past two a Carriage drove up to the door and Bernhardt mile Jeanne Madame Girard Sarah a cocian ion and mrs. Henry e. Abbey alighted proceeding at once to the third Row on the right in the parquet. Sara sat with her Sisler on her left and mrs. Ash by on her right. Shortly afterwards. Mile. Colum Brier messes. Soudan Angelo Laynie Jarrett and Abbey entered the first Thiee seating themselves directly behind the actress and i he others remaining in the rear of the House. The a Demoiselles Bern Hardt were dressed in Black silk with becoming afternoon hats and each wove ?. Cluster of marshal Neil roses below the left shoulder. They removed their Sac us immediately after reaching their seats and appeared ready to enjoy the entertainment right . h not iuhj.-, in \.,, for the curtain in. Raised in a minute disclosing the Quot big four Quot who Brgan their rollicking business at once. Sara watched the contortions Ana changes with amusement starting a Little Whu a the cymbals dashed and the comedians shouted. Charles Heywood then appeared in female costume and impersonated a Prima Donna at to a e opera. A a that a Sara a a ex1"1 rented mile. Jeanne to or sister when the gorgeous apparition Al r1 advanced but seeing her mistake contradicted the St Ltd Orient. As Heywood stepped before the lights and said a Jaime la opera give us some a son Nampula a the actress laughed merrily i placing iter programme in Iron of her lace. She seemed to enjoy eve a feature of his singing and applauded Urtu or came Back and added Ano her vese. A cd re Man delivered a lecture a his usual sedate manner but Sara evidently wars puzzled to catch his jokes although she a Riecl very hard. Her knowledge of English proved insufficient however but seeing How hugely everybody else enjoyed it she laughed and clapped her hands like a girl. The familiar face of George Thatcher and his humorous make up fairly convulsed the visitors and when he began singing a song commencing a have you seen Sara Isnit she a bearer a the subject of the song laughed i moderately increasing her mirth when the words were translated to tier. As Thatcher continued Sara lost entire control of her Riabie Muscles swaying backward and to raid with laughter leaning on the seat in front of her and tapping mile. Jeanne several times on the shoulder causing the latter to burst Forth in another mercy peal. And when bulk Carroll sauntered ion presenting an Irmen in pair of shoes to the eyes of the audience the parisian a Avor Iier so Cha a Quot Wra heard above All the applause. There was a Piu of Ltd a Nomen before the burlesque began daring which Saia scanned the pm Ramme and when the arrival of mrs. Stdutters red her Tive children upon the stage gave warning that Sira heartburn would shortly follow j Bernhard looked to blushing she Lviv As she perceived an enormous pair of Glass bottles levelled at her in place of Opra glasses by the Cork Fernde. Every Eye in the audience was riveted upon the woman whose characteristics were to be burlesque and the appearance of Rice was scarcely noticed for the second until Sara herself showed her appreciation of the caricature by bursting into a fit of uncontrollable laughter. The agony displayed by Sara heartburn and her Tumble on the stage Only added to the merriment of Bernhardt and it grew apace with the presentation of the works of Art by Ryman As specimens of the burlesque a Handiwork. The bust which the audience was informed represented a Well Rowan As a Moses m the bulrushes did not please the artist half As much As the Daub depicting Weaver and Sparks fighting which was intended As a a a Takeoff on Sarah a paintings. The fun continued and Reache i its Climax when Rice and Ryman impersonated Camille and Armand. The imitation of Bernhardt s stage attitudes and gestures caused Sara to laugh to an extent almost painful. She seemed unable to Stop although she placed her handkerchief Over her Mouth and leaned Forward in the Effort to restrain herself. She abandoned All attempts however when the death scene ensued and heartburn threw herself upon the Sola a Ter the manner in which a diver starts for the Bottom of the sea. Looking first at Jeanne and then Back at Angelo Sara gave vent to her sense of the ludicrous until her eyes were full of tears. Being genuine drops of Salt it was inter Esing to note she absorbed them with her Dainty Cambric by delicately tapping each individual tear much after the manner of a society Belle who is afraid of removing some of the Rouge adorning her Cheek. 1 Here might have been danger of hysterics hid not an attack of coughing interfered a it a it. Aad not George Thatcher made himself known As Victor heartburn s son blowing a Horn and crying lustily. This burlesque on the social charac or of the �?Tcrtss cd i of seem to please her and she sober so Down considerably for the it me. The concluding scene however again amused her and she clapped her gloved in is right Hen Lily seemingly sorry the curtain finally descended. While the visitors were preparing to leave a it hat was had with mile. Bernhardt concern 1 the performance. She expressed Mck As delighted with the entertainment and confessed that she liked hey Wood s operatic imitations Best of All. A it was More hire a woman than the others a a Trad. When the conversation refer red to Thucher she observed that the Imen Crino thought the French As she in part Cigar talked very rapidly but she a or adhered or. Thatcher a More rapid talker than herself. A is it not so ? asked meeting with a modest Acquin .rear� la was red to say what she thought of the reference to her son. A i do not think it was the proper thing a answered in French with gestures and a n to n of r. Vmncj which in Dica id that she de inv i it somewhat of an offence. On the whole she was highly pleased however and requested that Ryman a stump speech thatchers song about herself and his poem concerning Quot Little Wilher might be copied and sent to Paris for publication. It seems that Thatcher already has a considerable reputation in h Ranee having had a Good offer to appear at the cafe 1�?T ambassador in the champs hey sees the place where the Prince of Wales invariably stops and dines when in Paris. The male portion of the audience ranged itself on both sides of the aisle while Mademoiselle passed out and she ran the Gauntlet of scrutiny with a smile and a complimentary phrase in her own Tongue. Quot i hence she went for a drive. Sherman talks of War times. His recollection of burning buildings in at last a reminiscences of rebel commanders. Shetland ponies i�?Tic 1,0�?Tu Jum a. The ponies Are not a agricultural but a Domestic necessity. In Shetland As in parts or Ireland every family depends for its Supply of fuel on peat and As the peat �3 Seldom f und near a it a can re where the houses stand but on the Hill behind them there is always a Hill in the rear in Shetland every Island consisting mainly of Hill with a Patch or two of a a smooth land in a few snug nooks by the Shore As it often is at a distance of several Steep and Stony Miles each House requires several ponies the number depending on the distance and the character of the Road a Hrnily living a a convenient to the peat May require Only two peat carriers and it Mother family May require half a dozen. The Materia after it has been dug and dried in the usual manner is carried Home on the backs of the ponies in baskets called �?Ocassies�?� it is obvious that the Back which has to perform this kind of service should be Broad and Strong. The Shetland Pony is a striking example of development for generations past he has been bred and reared and trained with a uniformity which could not have been secured in any other part of the United kingdom hence his physique and general character his hereditary instincts and intelligence his Small size and his purity and fixity of Type. A Pony belonging to a Breed which has had to pick its Zigzag War Down a Steep Declivity during Many generations must be sure footed. By the same Rule a Pony whose grooms and playmates include a Dozer juveniles the children of the neighbourhood who Roll about underneath him or upon Nis backs must be gentle and the same Pony living on the scat hold on air sometimes rather than on herbage must be Hardy. The Pony of the Shetland Isles is in fact the offspring of . Ile is the pet of the family gentle As the Arab s Steed under similar training. He wiil follow his friends in doors like a dog and lick the platters or the children a faces. He has no More kick in him than a cat and no More bite than a Puppy. He is a Noble sex Uncle of the Complete sup ice sum of these vicious propensities that some of i kind exhibit when they Are ill treated and of the intelligence and Good temper that May be developed in horses by a kindness. There is no precedent for Bis running away nor for his becoming frightened or tired even when he has carried some Stout Laird from Lerwick to his House Many scotch Miles across the Hills. He moves Down the rugged hillsides we Ith admirable circumspection loaded Pannier fashion with two heavy a Cassie so of Pcit, to taking his Way step by step sometimes sideways. In crossing Boggy spots where the water is retained and a Green carpet aquatic grass might deceive some steeds and bring them headlong to grief in the spongy trap he carefully smells the surface and is thus enabled to circumvent the danger. In the Winter the Shetland Pond wears a coat made of felted hair and especially suited for the season. His thick Winter garment is Well adapted for protecting him against the fogs and Damps of the climate. It is Acrediugiy v. Ami Tad comfortable fils close to the wearers Dapper form and is not bad looking when new. Cut when the coat grows old toward Spring at the season when t be new one should appear it becomes the Shab Biest garment of the kind that you often see. Its very amplitude and the abundance of the material Render it to the More conspicuous when it peels and hangs for awhile ragged and worn out and then Falls bit by bit till the whole of it disappears. No horse looks at his Best when losing his old coat and the More coat there May be to lose the worse he looks. General Sherman has been talking to a correspondent of the Atlanta Constitution about his doings in War time about that City and he said Many things that Are interesting to the boys who joined in the March to the sea. A a i he City of Atlanta was never burned As a City a said the general. A a i notice that the Headquarters i occupied All the houses about it and the Headquarters of j the other officers were All standing when i j revisited the place a year or two since. The residence streets were not burned at All�?� a it was your intention then to Burn Only the heart of the City a a my intention was clearly expressed in a written order to general Pope. It was simply to Burn the buildings in which Public stores had been placed or would Likely be placed. This included Only four buildings As i recollect not Over five or six. One of these was a warehouse about the depot in which or under which were a number of shells. From this building a Brock of business houses took fire and the destruction went beyond the limits a tended. Tho old Trout House was burned by some of the men. Who had some reason for burning it. I ordered the round House burned. I wanted to destroy the Railroad it could not be used. I then wanted to destroy the Public buildings Sothat Atlanta could not be used As a depot of supplies. I ordered As i say four or five houses set on fire but As far As burning the City in the sense of Wanton destruction i never thought of such a thing. I shirked no responsibility that War imposed but i never went beyond my Duty�?� a How were you received when you visited Atlanta a year or two since a a with unvarying Courtesy. I travelled Over the whole state and i never heard a disrespectful or insulting word. The people seemed to be hospitable Happy and Busy. It was very Gratifying to me to see How the scars of War had been rubbed out and the waste places made glad once More. The recuperation Shewn on All sides especially from Rome to Atlanta i considered wonderful. But if those people can Only work As Well As they fought i need have been astonished at nothing. At Cartersville i was talking while the train Man a vv�?~t1 sex attorney general Aker around and finally a Frank looking fellow said a Well general done to you think behave built up pretty Well since you left us a a yes a i replied Laughry Jlyo a a and done to you think i left you plenty of room a at which there was a laugh All round. So 1 found the people All through Georgia Bright cheerful and Busy�?� a it has been reported general that when Hood succeeded Johnson you said heretofore we have been fighting where the enemy pleased now we fight where we please�?T is this True a a ooh i done to know that i said that. I first heard of the appointment of Hood from one of my scouts who had gone into Atlanta with a lot of cattle and had brought out a morning paper. As soon As i saw this i asked two generals who were his classmates at West Point what manner of Man he was they both described him As a bold headlong fighter and said that we would have to be prepared All along the line for warm work. I replied that that was precisely what i wanted that i did not care to Rush on to breastworks but that whenever we were attacked we must fight if we could Only put fifty men against a thousand. By the Way i met Hood afterwards in new Orleans and we became warm friends. I am now the custodian of his papers. He was a Brave and Gallant Man�?� a when were you convinced of the Success of your movement into Georgia a a when i saw Hood moving up towards Tennessee i Felt that the confederacy Coula not survive. After sending Thomas Back to meet Hood i had 60,000 Good men and i knew that no government could sustain itself with such an army As this marching about through its territory Vrh Ere it pleased. When i left Atlanta for the March through Georgia with no army in my front and Hood watched by Thomas in my rear i Felt that the end was approaching. As i looked Back on the City the heavy smoke made from the burning of the yellow Pine Hung like a pall Over the Scene�?� a did not that Long March through Georgia Breed a Strong sense of comradeship among the men who made it a a that it did. It was a splendid army too better even i believe than the army of the Potomac. It was Well disciplined and orderly and i think the people suffered Little from depredations. I remember when we struck Howell Cobbs Plantation the boys Laid it waste. They Felt As if they had a Chance at one of the chief rebels and they improved it. But generally they were orderly and abstained from Wanton Ness and plunder. It is strange but when i sit on a stand now in front of a crowd i can often pick out the faces of the men who were with me in Georgia. There is a Quick affectionate look of recognition that Speaks to me As Plain As words. If i am making a speech and happen to allude to any Lite thing that happened on the March i can then Tell the face of every Man in the crowd who was in Georgia with Me�?� dissipated dogs. Of All the rakes whose principal pleasure is to turn night into Day none Are More inveterate than two characters Well known to that portion of Paris society which repairs during the Small hours to Peters the Helder Etc., for supper and Gay Converse. The hardened roues in question Are two dogs a poodle of extreme Wool Ness and a nondescript who is generally clothed round like a Blanket with mud As Sancho Panza was with sleep. This pair of constant comrades Lead an existence of the most regular irregularity. Every night at about 12. They May be seen always quite master less lounging about the boulevards and earnestly seeking for some person with the air of a till having made a Choice after much deliberation they follow their victim like his Shadow until he has reached some restaurant with intent to sup. If the canine Confidence is misplaced and the passer by goes sober y Home those rostering Blades the dogs make their Way along up the Broad Marble staircase of Peters where being Well known to the freq enters of that establishment they Are cordially received and plied with All the delicacies of the festive Board. At the hour of two they disappear from Peters turning up a moment afterwards at the Helder on the other Side of the Boulevard and they top off the evenings excitement at a Distant a a in crates to abolishment near the Central Market bar Attens by name when the Light of Early morning peeps in upon the scene of their revels they disappear with the last of the night Birds and Are beheld no More till i a. M. Has again come round. Those who have made the personal acquaintance of this remarkable pair state that their grave enjoyment of their nightly dissipation is most edifying to witness and that their general Demeanour reminds one strongly of that character in a novel by Murger we believe whose pure and patriarchal face was never seen but at some pot House in the deepest hours of the night beaming complacently at the Drunken revellers around him. Country books. It is mighty embarrassing to a Man who has some religious friends staying with him to have his do which has been very quiet during week Days begin right after breakfast sunday to run to the gun in the Corner and then to his master and wag his Tail and then run Back to the gun again. A love of the country is taken i know not Why to indicate the presence of All the Cardinal Virtues. It is one of those outlying qualities which Are not exactly meritorious but which for that very reason Aie the More provocative of a pleasing self complacency. People Pride themselves upon it As upon fabits of Early rising or of answering letters by return of Post. We recognize the virtuous hero of a nov i As soon As we Are told that the cat in in Dively rec his hand t0 stay its tottering Steps. To say that we love the country is to make an indirect claim to a similar excellence. We assert a taste for Sweet and innocent pleasures and an indifference to the feverish excitements of artificial society. I too love the country a if such a statement can be received after such an exordium but i confess to be duly modest that i love it Best in books. In real life i have remarked that it is frequently Damp and rheumatic and most hated by those who know it Best. Not Long ago i heard a worthy orator at a country school treat declare to his Small audience that honesty sobriety and Industry in their station of life might possibly enable them to become cab Drivers in London. The precise form of the Reward was suggested i fancy by some edifying history of an Ideal Cabman but the speaker clearly knew the Road to his hearers hearts. Perhaps the realization of this High destiny might dispel their illusions. Like poor Susan at the Corner of Wood Street they would see a Bright volumes of vapor through lol Bury Glide and a River flow on through the Vale of cheap-side�?� the Swiss who at Home regards a Mountain As an unmitigated nuisance is or once was capable of developing sentimental yearning for the Alps at the sound of a runs Des caches. We All agree with Horace that Rome is most attractive at Timur and vice versa. It is the Man who has been a Long in populous cities pent who. According to Milton enjoys a a the smell of Grain or tended grass or Kine or Daisy each Rural sight each Rural sound and the phrase is employed to ill trate the sentiments of a being whose enjoyment of Paradise was certainly enhanced by a sufficiently contrasted experience. I do not wish to pursue the Good old moral saws expounded by so Many preachers and poets. I am Only suggesting a possible ground of apology for one who prefers the Ideal Mode of rust cation who can share the worthy Johnson a love of Charing Cross and sympathize with his pathetic remark when enticed into the Highlands by his Bear Leader that it is easy a to sit at Home and conceive rocks heaths and some slight basis of experience must doubtless be provided on which to rear any imaginary fabric and the mental opiate which stimulates the sweetest reverie is found in chewing the cud of past recollections. But with a Good guide one requires Small external Aid. Though a Cockney in Grain i love to lean upon the farm Yard Gate to hear mrs. Poyser give a bit of her mind to the Squire to be lulled into a Placid doze by the humming of do Lecote Mill to sit Down in Dandie Din month a parlor and bestow crumbs from his groaning table upon three generations of peppers and Mustard or to drop into the Kitchen of a Good old country inn and to smoke a pipe with Tom Jones or listen to the simple minded philosophy of Parson Adams. When i lift my eyes to realities i can dimly Descry across the Street a vision of my neighbor behind his looking Glass adjusting the parting of his Back hair and achieving triumphs with his White tie calculated to excite the envy of a Brummell. It is pleasant to take Down one of the magicians of the shelf to annihilate my neighbor and his evening parties and to wander off through quiet country lanes into some sleepy hollow of the past Homes of the poets. Nine silhouettes of the Homes of american authors. From the Liston Herald. Thomas Sailey Aldrich. Or. Aldrich lives at Pon Kapok a part of the town of Canton in Massachusetts. Although a very charming place Pon Kapok was never noted for its Enterprise and a the location of a Railroad some two or three Miles Distant has left it very much in the condition of Bailey s four Corners described by or. Aldrich in his Story of a miss Mehetable a Son�?� the House is an old fashioned two Story House built at the beginning of the present Century and is partially screened from the Road by Cherry Trees and a hedge of Arbor Vilic presided Over by two ancient and shiftless looking Buttonwoods. Back of the House the grounds fall away gently to a Stream and an old Mill Pond on which stands a deserted and decaying Mill which was utilized during the late War for the weaving of soldiers cardigans. Along the margin of the Stream which after wandering All around the grounds finds its Way out in the Neponset Meadows and so to the Ocean great quantities of water dresses and curious wild Flowers grow the cowslip and the Pitcher Plant among them. Elizabeth Stuart i Hells her summer Home in Gloucester is a two Story Brown cottage with doors and windows opening out upon a Piazza facing the sea. Upon the Interior miss Phelps has bestowed much of the artistic taste which distinguishes her. The parlor is a Long narrow room tinted with a delicate Green Shade not a sea Green but the Green our Eye catches in the Opal of a wave As the sunlight touches it. In other rooms of the House the same taste has directed that one should be Rose tint another Robins egg Blue another delicate shades of Buff and Brown another the native colors of the Wood. The House is filled with the remembrances of those who love her and with the books and pictures that she loves and with the constant society and sympathy of friends the lady whom you know As the author of a Gates ajar and Quot the Story of Avis Here draws into her quiet Days and invalid life the courage and the Calm of the summer sea. Nora Perry miss Perry a Home is in Providence in Little Rhode Island though she was a Massachusetts girl and is so much in Boston that Many persons have an idea that this Home we a of up Ovis. Thor a to up nah Tifful Hills for which Providence is noted and entering a quiet Street Stop at last before a modest Little House shaded by two branching elms. But it is not the exterior it is the Interior in which we most interested for it is there that Nora Perry a individuality has Opportunity to express itself. Admitted to this Interior we Are shown into a charming room of which we take fascinated observation while we wait the coming of its fair mistress. The heavy drapery of the windows gives the room a soit subdued Light but quite sufficient to enable us to discover its artistic arrangement. It it is Winter a Bright open Wood fire is burning before us. On the Walls All about Are pictures pictures everywhere bits of painting Beautiful engravings and Choice specimens of photographic Art. In a Corner stands a wide writing table and close behind it a Book Case filled with books. This Corner is our lady s work shop the Nook where our Sweet singers songs Are penned. Mrs Harriet Prescott Spofford the dwelling is one of those grand old fashioned farm houses built to last As Long As the Island and when folks had plenty of Timber to put around it. It used to be a tavern also and it actually seems to laugh As we come up to it with memories of the jollity it has seen in Days gone by but there is a different air about it now. It has been remodeler somewhat without and within and while there is no Lack of laughter around it it stands with a quiet and stately Grace. There is a store of Joy there now but it is different As the song that steals out into the hushed night from the poets lattice is different from that which makes the rafters ring Over the bowl of cider. The staircase is Broad and quaint and above it is open Clear through the House giving it an air of spaciousness and grandeur. Below too it is wide and Cool a most delicious Retreat in the heat of the Day a perfect Temple for quiet unspoken worship in the hush of evening. To the left of the Hall is the parlor and once within it is hard to get away there is so much to feast the Eye and so much to Charm the mind for Here the family sit and make the Home. Mrs. Celia Thaxter. The cottage at Appledore Island is perfectly Plain. No Bay windows balconies or other pretty appendages no fanciful Gables or gothic Points no newness of paint no vines or Trees. Only a Plain two storied House with Dormer windowed attic. A homely House built on the Rock and perched in severe Relief against the sky. At the foot of the cottage is a Small Vard enclosed by a picket Fence. It is full of Flowers. I do not mean Prim and decorous Beds and Flowers staying where they Are put within their Well clipped Borders. But a Yard full of Flowers full to the Fence top and covering every Inch of ground with their glad Luxuriance. No Weed anywhere quite crowded out by these burning glowing starry Gladsome creatures. Somehow by reason of the soil and air the Flowers Here have a Freedom of growth and brilliancy of Hue not else where found and intense loveliness. Mrs. J. J. Piatt and s. M. B. Piatt. The Piatt House itself is built at the Center of Many Beautiful landscapes the Ohio River being the commanding feature. The cottage stands on the River line of Hills on the Northern Ohio Side nearly 300 feet above the River level. Ever window of the House gives charming River views the Ohio Southeast and Northwest the great Miami to the northward while from the Heights above the House there is a Lovely glimpse of the meeting of the Whitewater with the Miami reminding one of Tom Moore a song of Quot the Vale of Avoca where the Bright Waters meet. These Gay sunny Waters encircle in their gleaming arms the More Green and Fertile of valleys. In summer the whole country below the dark wooded Heights seems one vast unbroken level Corn Field. Across the Ohio to the southward there Are some delightful Kentucky views Rich and extensive Bottom lands with farm houses Orchards pastures wheat Fields and Cornfields bounded by a line of wooden Hills the scene from the upper windows is a delightful mingling of the idyllic and the romantic. Mrs. A. D. T. Whitney. It is a Sweet sunny place in Milton Midway Between the Mill Village and the Center and the pleasant South windows look away to Blue Hills which bound the horizon. It is a Brown double House with an l and a veranda at the Back a Broad Piazza in front Woodbine climbing luxuriantly around its pillars and up to the Side of the House a Root of Woodbine which her children brought from Milton Woods years ago and planted Here. Roses grow about the place in summer and the place is very Green. Gnarled old Apple Trees and Dwarf pears abound at the Back and plenty of singing Birds have their habitation among the branches and in the Bird houses which Are perched High up above the tree tops for their accommodation. Lovely old elms gave the place a name Elm Corner. That quaint old House across the Road is where Quot Faith Gartney used to live. J. T. Trowbridge. The Home of j. T. Trowbridge the poet and the Story Teller is a neat Brown wooden House two and a half stories High situated in a Garden of fruits and Flowers on pleasant Street in Arlington mass. Close behind it Arlington Lake the spy Ford of historic Fame winds like a Broad River for a distance of a mile or More a drawing room furnished with elegance and taste occupies the front half of the House behind which a Large dining room overlooks the Pond. From the East window in the upper Hall Bunker Hill Monument and the City of Charlestown can be seen with a glimpse of old Boston itself. From the Southeast window of the study mount Auburn the City of the dead Cambridge Observatory surrounded by the Hills of Brighton and Brookline form an interest ins Prospect. Arlington Lake which can Ever changing variety. Richard Henry Stoddard. The Stoddard live in new York in an a pretending Little House in East fifteenth Street. If we were to attempt to characterize their Home in a few words we should say that it was nearly such a Home As All authors ought to have. It is plainly furnished but is full of Good books and Good pictures most of which were painted by their artist friends. The books Are All English of course for the Stoddard have Only such education As they have Given themselves but they Are All Good Quot books which Are books a As Charles Lamb used to say. The Rob Borhild a promised Bride. Mlle. Perugia the affianced Bride of Baron Leopold Rothschild is the sister of mrs. Arthur Sassoon. She brings her husband Little or no dowry but she is of remarkable Beauty and is endowed with unusual talents. Brought up in Trieste where their father had a banking House the two Sisters spent their Early years in that City but in consequence of difficulties the Bank was broken up. Their father died and the two Young girls with their Mother being left comparatively speaking poor went to Vienna where they lived with a Rich relative. A photograph of the elder sister somehow found its Way to London and fell into the hands of or. Arthur Sassoon. Struck with the Beauty of the likeness or. Sassoon undertook a journey to Vienna in search of the original. It was at mrs. Sassoon a House that Baron Leopold met his Bride. Thus both ladies owe their successful marriage to the Charm of a photograph which should henceforth be treasured As an honoured Possession and handed Down As a Lucky heirloom. Newspaper waifs.
