THREE WHO LIVED TO GET MARRIED. AS LIKE AS PEAS IN A POD. Miss Ethel Cryder, who was mar-' ried m New York on December 1 to Mr Cecil Higgins, formerly secretary of the British Embassy at Washington, is the last of the famous "Cryder triplets" to become a bride, says a New York paper. The three figured m New York society for years as one personality, because of their resemblance to one another. They were christened Edith, Elsie, and Ethel, and all are tall, blue-eyed, and strikingly handsomer Their parents were sometimes unable to tell them apart, and frequently at social functions one was mistaken for another. Mrs William Astor, m making, a list for her annual ball, once ;old her secretary to invite Miss Cryder. "Which one?" asked the secretary. "Why, all three of her, of course," answered Mrs Astor. The daily walk of the triplets along Fifth-avenue caused them to be followed, as were the famous Gunning sisters m London over a century ago. Identical m stature, features, colouring, and dress, they kept everybody guessing as to their identity. On all matters of taste the three were a unit. They road the same books, followed the same fashions, and enjoyed the same amusements. Later, when the resemblance began to have embarrassing consequences, the triplets had to dress differently. The first to marry was Edith, who became the wife of Mr Lathrop 'Ames, of Boston. Then Elsie became the bride of Mr W. Woodward, of New York. Mr Higgins, who is to marry Ethel, is a son of Mr Henry V. Higgins, of London, by his first wife, a lid a step-son of the present Mrs Higgins, who was Mrs William B recce, of New York. Mr Duncan Cryder. father of the triplets, is very wealthy and highly connected.
