GOSSIP OP THE GIRLS.
Alice Confides to Dear Louiso the
Goings On in Washington.
My weak Louise: Tbo spring season is
wearing away, and in a week or so the great
hegira to the summer resorts or Europe will
bo In full tide. The only society event of any
magnitude during the week was tho Country
Club tea. Next Wednesday will sec tho last
mectlns of this kind for tho season. There
liavo been many excursions to Mount Vernon
during tho annual meeting of tho Rogents,
which always occurs ut this time of tho year.
'The members of tbo Presidential house
hold are in tho enjoyment of tho rest from
social duties which the papers arc constantly
assuring us they so greatly need poor vic
tims ! And yet compare their mode of travel
now with what they had to enduro four years
ago, and what thoy will have to put up with
In a couple of years henco. When a trip is in
contemplation by the Whito House family
how delightfully Bimplo it is for them. No fuss
or bother of any kind, only a numerous fam
ily stepping into comfortable carriages and
being whirled to the depot, -whore a magnifi
cent train of cars with "all the comforts of a
homo" bears them on their journoy. And
when once started nono of your slow (stop
pages and weary waits, but swift progress in
tho wake of a pilot engine, overy luxury at
their elbow, from the ncup that cheers" to
strawberries and orchids. No wonder every
politician's wife wants to bo Mrs. President.
What would Goorge and Martha say if their
eyes were opened again and they could con
template the royal progresses and gift collect
ing expeditfons of their successors? And, by
tho way, we are promised a look at31rs. Har
rison's numeroais and valuable souvenirs by
having them on exhibition, at 'tho National
Iu some random readirig I have lately in
dulged in I was much astonished to find that
tne fad 01 silver Don-Don ooxes was in vogue
in tho sixteenth century. On thomorning of
tho assassination of the Duko of Guise, in 1583,
Guizot relates that the Duke of Guiso went
early to the council chamber, and shortly
after "gave orders to his secretary, Puricard,
to go and fetch the sllver-gilt-shell ho was in
the habit of carrying about him witbdamsons
or other conserves. Pericard passed hl&bon-bon
box to him. The Duke took a few plums from
it, and threw the rest on the table, saving, 'Gen
tlemen, who will have any ?' " Who shall say
there is anything new under the isun after
Another curious piece of information I
gleaned the other day from an old book full
of complexion recipes was that "patches on
the face, associated as they aro in modern
days with fashion and frivolity, were once a
symbol of religion. They originated with
Etheldra, the Saxon queen and saint, in the
. seventh century, who, quite late In life, be
came an abbess. In the monastery she gave
herself up to fasting and severe penances of
various kinds, which caused her face to break
out in blotches. Her nuns besought her to
cover these blotches with patches, which
thereby became evidences of a truly religious
life. We all know how imitative human
nature is, and those among tho nuns who had
not blotches adopted the patches without
them. Tho complexion fad of this
fm dc siecle period is to color
the cheeks by means of a beautifying, matter
put under the skin by the agency of a hypo
dermic needle. Just fancy tho penalty of a
few hours' bloom. The needle loaves a small
puncture on the cheeks, and tho woman who
uses it is always compelled to go heavily
veiled in daytime, or her punctured face, In
the clear, true light of day, will reveal the
secret of her evening bloom. I have been
told of two society women of this city who
owe the carnation tint of their cheeks to tho
coloring matter inserted by the hypodermic
needle. It is paying a big price for beauty, is
It not, Louise ? Youth has its own loveliness,
and usually that "fine conceit of Itself" that
will not brook tho idea of borrowed roses. So,
really, in this dangerous practice harm is
only done to back numbers and married
women, both of which classes qptght to know
1 must tell you of a fad of a different kind
that is soing to be greatly in vogue next sea-
. son. Hereafter sealine wax is 'Jo'have a
language of its own. Like all th,p, fads that
have a run here, this one is of transatlantic
origin. A letter containing a marriage pro
posal must bo sealed with whito wax, missives
between accepted lovers with ruby-colored
wax; blue denotes .constancy, and yellow
jealousy, while green wax is the emblem of
hope, and brown Indicates melancholy. All
this Is for lovers. For business purposes tho
common red seallLg wax serves; gray is tho
tint for ordinary correspondence between
friends. Dinner invitations mus,t have seals
of a chocolate tint, while confidential letters
between girl friends should bo sealed with
pink. Do 70U think you'll remember all
this? The indication by color of tho-bature
of tho letter will be a great help to tho in
vestigatlngly inclined domestics who receive
the mail at the front and expend considerable
time and attention in conning over tho super
scriptions. In tho way of engacement gossip I have
heard of nothing so "interesting as that re
ported between Miss Hattlo Blalno and the
now consul general to Persia, Mr. 'Truxtou
Bealc. Miss Hattlo Blaine Is tho only ono of
tho daughters of the Secretary of State with
the slightest pretensions to beauty. She is
really a handsome girl, but has never acquired
tho reputation for beauty and accomplish
ments that she deserves owing to the semi
mourning of the Blaine family over since her
dc'but. After the storm of weddings in April
tho U6uai May quiet In such matters followed
but June is a favorite raarriago month and
no doubt you will hear of some spectacular
ceremonies from your friend, Alice.

THE TENNIS TOURNAMENT.
Tho Most Successful' IUooUhk J3ver Held
Tho open tourney under tho auspices of the
National Lawn Tennis Association which was
begun at tho eoiiits of tho Bachelors' Tennis
Club tho lulu iiiBtant was brought to a close
Prlday. Tho playing of tho visitors proved a
treat to tho devotees of tennis In this city, and
has opened up a now lino of play among tho
local enthusiasts. Tho work of tho Hall
brothers was remarkable for placiug and an
absenco of "smashing." Their stylo of play
was particularly graceful, using tho "back
hand" stroke with equal effect as tho "foro
hand," and thus returning ball after ball
until tho ono or tho other was slightly out of
position, when, with remarkable rapidity, tho
ball was sent Hying past tho opponent, just
out of reach.
Much praise could bo heard on all sides of
tho brilliant game played by Mr. Oscar Wood
ward in tho contest with Mr. Edwaid L. Hall,
in which tho scoro was 0-8, 5-7.
Mr. E. L. Hall, winner of tho all-comers,
and also of the Southern championship of tho
N. L. T. A., was tho hero of tho hour, es
pecially among tho fair attendants. Mr. Hall.
Is not yet twenty, and it is predicted that ho
is tho coming champion of tho United States.
This prediction will bo verified if ho continues
his prosent game, which consists in wonderful
judgment, quick action, and great skill. Ho
will enter tho tournament at Newport in
August, and after defeating tho veteran A. E.
Wright it is reasonable to expect that his skill
will add new laurels to his name.
Tho attendance during the meeting was
over six hundred, besides tho contestants, and
brilliant gatherings were daily features. Tho
tourney was a fiuaucial as well as asocial suc
cess. Following aro tho complete scores:
