THE SUNDAY HKRALD, SUNDAY, MARCH S3. 1S90.
SOCIETY lsTEWS AND OIIAT.
Conttnucdfrom seventh vaoc.
There has been no end of speculation anil
gossip In society circles the past week over tho
report that Dr. Ruth, of the Navy, had at last
succumbed to Cupid's wiles and engaged him
self to the eldest daughter of PoBtmastcr Gon
cncral Wanamaker. In the absence of deflnito
Information on this intensoly Interesting rumor,
all tho circumstantial ovidenco tending to es
tablish Its truth was eagerly caught up and can
vassed by the acquaintances of tho gallant
Doctor. As Dr. Ruth is probably tho best
known man in Washington society, it will he
readily understood that tbero has been an ap
palling amount of talk about him and his af
fairs of the heart in tho last few days. Mauy
o thoso who knew him best were very much
Inclined to doubt the truth of tho rumor, as
his reputation as an absolutely arrow-proof
bachelor has been thought to bo established for
years. A piece of circumstantial evidence,
which is strongly against this view of tho mat
ter, however, came to light a couplo of
days ago, and is thought by many to be amplo
proof of the Doctor's final conquest. This
piece of evidence may not seem of importance
to the General, but young ladles "who have
been there" say that It practically settles tho
question in their minds, When a girl, they as
sert, begins to show special attention to tho
mother with whom she has not previously been
on close terms of intimacy, It is an infallible
sign that the son ha6 made an impression, and
a deep one. Miss Wanamaker, It is known,
called with her carriage for Mrs. Ruth, tho Doc
tor's mother, on a recent afternoon, when tho
old lady had been attending a meeting of tho
Garfield Sewing Circle, and conveyed her to her
home. This simple circumstance is said to
have convinced the Initiated that tho report of
the engagement is true, and speculation will
now pass on to the prospective wedding.
The readings of Thomas Nelson Pago were
greatly enjoyed last evening at Professor and
Mrs. Cabell's residence In this city, and a largo
and verv distineuished company testified by

Mr. Tweedale, of this city, read an article by
J. Whitcomb Riley, which was published in tho

Mr. R.'U. Johnson, editor of tho Century, was
present and took a lively Interest in tho literary
features of the occasion. Ho is an honorary
member of the Norwood Literary Society, and
will at some future date prepare a paper for
that society. The musical programme which
followed was a brilliant success. Mario Decca
sang to perfection, and Mr. Whipple delighted
the audience by his sympathetic, full, and rich
voice. The instrumental music was also a great
success, and was highly appreciated. Among
those present were Secretary, Mrs., and Miss
Rusk, Mr. Horatio King, tho Chief .Tustico and

famous Sprague mansion, on tho corner of
Sixth and E streets northwest, gave its annual
children's ball at Edel's Hall on Wednesday
evening, followed by a hop, given to .their lady
members, during the later hours. It was a gala

Messrs. I. S. Fleishman, M. A. Tanzer, Louis
Rich, M. E. Mailhouse, and C. L. Ileilbrun.
A series of tableaux and readings from "Ben
Hur" are being much talked of, and tho proba
bility is that the talk will amount to something
tangible about the middle of April. A series of
this character have recently been given with

Mrs. Bradford, a talented woman, who is now
being besieged on all sides with offers of en
gagements. Lincoln Hall has already boon
spokon for if arrangements can bo completed
with Mrs Bradford, and two boxes contingently
sold at fifty dollars apiece. It adds to the in
terest of these tableaux to know that Low Wal
laco, the author of "Ben Hur," gives them his
approval, and it Is now expected that ho with
Mrs. Wallace will be guests of Mrs. Jerry
Wilson, who is his cousin, at about the time it
Is hoped to have tho readings. All this is being
dono not only to amuse, but to promote tho
material Interests of the National Homeopathic

liET THE PIjAG FliY.
An Object Iiouson In Patriotism Model
Public Dulldincs in This City.
The interesting featuro in tho proceedings of
Congress yesterday was tho discussion in tho
Sonato upon tho subject of appropriating money
for the erection of suitable Government build
ings Ik the cities of tho Union for tho accom
modation of United States officers, Instead of
paying rental for private property to be used as
Government offices. Tho tendency of a few of
tho speakers was to criticlso tho Committee on
Public Buildings and Grounds for not having
exercised due discrimination in passing upon
bills for tho erection of public buildings, and
others, especially Messrs. Ingalls and Dawes,
criticised tho Supervising Architect's Office for
something akin to extravaganco in its archi
tectural work and in tho selection of materials
for public buildings erected in recent years.
Mr. Ingalls said there is a very definite im
pression on thd public mind, and which he had
derived from feadlng the newspapers, that ap
propriations in tho River and Harbor bill, and
in bills for public buildings, went by favor, like
osculation, "and that in various Instances largo
appropriations had been made for which there
was no apparent justification. Public attention
nau oeen called repeatedly to the fact tuat alter
the formal business of tho Senato was over the
session had been continued with far less than a
quorum present; that bills had been taken up
nem. com., read formally and hastily, and
passed without tho reports being read and
without tho slightest discussion, and that mil
lions and millions of appropriations had been
piled up without any reason being given why
the bills should have been passed. The debate
to-day, ho 6aid, had been instructive and ad
vantageous. It justified tho action of tho com
mittee on the pending bill for a building at San
Diego, Cal., in having limited the cost to $300,
000, although tho Treasury Department recom
mended appropriation of !j500,000.
Mr. Ingalls said he believed that tho Govern
ment of tho United States ought never to be
a tenant for the premises it occupied, but that
wherever there was Government occupation
there should bo Government ownership. It
would be, he said, an object lesson in patriot
ism if in every town and village in tho Repub
lic there was a place, largo or small, from which
every day the flag of tho Republic should fly as
an indication that thero was tho visible pres
ence and majesty and power of tho Government.
Ho had beeu always in favor of liberal appro
priations for public buildings, and 6hould be
glad to support a measure that would provide for
a post office building wherever tho Govern
ment had occasiou to hiro a building. Ho con
demned tho practice that had grown up of ex
travagance and costliness in public buildings,
and cited as models of appropriateness tho
buildings for tho Bureau of Engraving and
Printing, for tho Pension Bureau, and for tho
At tho close of tho discussion tho San Diego
bill was passed.
Ool. Warden's Condition.
Col. W.W. Warden Is still in an entirely helples
state and yery weak. After a week spent at
Providence Hospital, under good medical treat
ment, tho kind ministrations of tho gentle Sis
ters of Charity, Col. Warden was yesterday
more easy and resting hotter than at any timo
during the past fortnight, but, upon the whole,
it seems that tho prospects of his ultimate re
covery of health and strength aro very slight.

NATUEE AND CUBE,
A. P. LIGHTHILL, M.D.,
No. 1017 Fifteenth Street Northwest,
Washington, D. C.
Catarrh manifests itself by a discharge from
tho head, sometimes of a colorless, glairy iluid,
butoftonorof a purulent, greonish-yollow mat
tor, which in mauy instances is so copious that
patients fcol as though their wholo head is iu a
stato of corruption. Tho discharge often lodges
bohlnd and above tho soft palate, requiring1
almost constant hawking for its removal. Often
scales or incrustations nro blown from tho nos
trils, in pieces from ono to two inches in length,
either solid or of a tubular form. Tho breath is
offonsivo, and sometimes rovoltlngly fotid.
Sraoll, and occasionally tho tasto, is impaired or
destroyed, tho hearing becomes affected, noises In
tho head make tholr appearance, and tho oyes
aro apt to become Irritated and watery. Tho
head feels full, heavy, and compressed, especially
abovo and between tho oyes, and sovoro neural
glo pain is often oxporienced about tho face and
head. Tho patient coughB moro or less, has a
capricious appetite, looses ilesh and strength, is
depressed in spirits, and inclined to drowsiness.
Tho memory is weakoned and often seriously
Impaired. Cold is .taken from tho least exposure,
and step by stop tho lnilamraatlon spreads until
it readies tho lungs and terminates lu Consump
tion. So frequently has this fatal course been
noticed that Catarrh is now looked upon as ono
of tho earliest manifestations of this dread dis
ease. Dy tho system of treatment which wo havo
originated and sinco carried to scientific perfec
tion a complete and radical curo of Catarrh can
bo effected. This wo havo demonstrated In
thousands of cases, representing tho disease in
every form and in all Its various stages of de
velopment. Our treatment reaches tho diseased
parte iu tho most direct and positive manner, in
stantaneously penotratlng every cell and cavity
of tho head with tho most boneQclal results. So
effective Is this plan of medication that a slnglo
application is productive of immediate and de
cided rollef. The affected cavities aro thoroughly
oloansed and medicated, tho offouslve smell is
removed, and all tho other troublesomo symp
toms gradually disappear. Tho discharge dimin
ishes, irritation is allayed, tho inllammatiou sub
sides, ulcerations are made to heal, until flnallj
a radical and permanent euro Is established.
