ROSALIE SELFRIDGE WEDS.
Daughter of London Merchant Marries Serge de Bolotoff, Aviator.
LONDON, Aug. 7. -- Rosalie Dorothea, eldest daughter of Harry Gordon Selfridge, American owner of one of London's large stores, was married this afternoon to Serge de Bolotoff, eldest son of the Princess Wiasemsky, member of one of the oldest families of Russia. The bridegroom, who has lived in England for many years, is an aviation enthusiast, and claims to have been the fifth man in the world to fly an airplane.
Owing to the death of the bride's mother a few months ago, the wedding was celebrated quietly in the chapel of the Russian Embassy, only relatives and a few friends of the contracting parties being present.
After a honeymoon in the South of France, the couple will live part of the year in England and the remainder in America.
