A SOCIETY MARRIAGE. The Four Hundred," of New York, are in a state of pleasant excitement anent the forthcoming mar- riage of Mr. Harry Lehr to Mrs. Dahlgren, a wealthy and beautiful widow. Mr. Lehr is drummer for a wine agency, and Mrs. Dahlgren is reputed to be worth 10,000,000dols. But Mr. Lohr is, despite his wine business, the pot of society, and practically reigns in the place of the late Ward McAiister, who placed the Four Hundred on the present dizzy height they occupy in the eyes of New York's popu- lation. Mr. Lehr covered himself with glory by paddling through a fountain-pond with a society beauty, and later on added to his never-failing laurels by dragging a rag doll through the streets of Newport in company with two ladies who are regarded as the creme de la creme. When he rose to be secretary of the Mrs. Astor it was felt he bad reached the very apex of ambitious desire, and he was looked upon as just a little short of a divinity. But Mr. Lehr has been proved to be a mere man, and he has succumbed to the fascination of the handsome widow with a handsome for- tune. And Mr. Lehr is going to the sacrifice nobly. His ushers," as they are called, are to be six millionaires, and they include a Vanderbilt, a Gould, and a Mackey. Presents to the bride and bridegroom are to vie with those usually given to royalties, and you may be sure that oceans of that particular brand of cham- pagne for which Mr. Lehr has drummed with so much praiseworthy persistency will be quaffed on the auspicious occasion. The only feature of unpleasant- ness in the romantic story is that the "yellow journals" will publish the' portraits of everybody concerned.
