GOSSIP OP THE GIRLS.
-Alice Confides to Dear Louiso the
Goings On in Washington.
-Mx uiuu Louise: Wo have hntl a perfect
'Storm of weddings since Juno 1. As a rule,
thoy havo boon quiet nfTatrs, not at nil on the
spectacular order, though even In the most
simple wedding ceremony there Is always, I
think, great care exercised hi the smallest
details for It is the day of the bride's llfo.
No ono seems over to think of tho groom. A
few Washlugtonlans attended the grand mar
riage function of Mr. Harry Lo Grand Cannon,
of Now York, and Miss Elizabeth Thompson,
of Detroit, on Tuosday, in St.Thomas's Church,
"New York. Tho decorations of tho church, 1
am told, wcro disappointing, but tho manner
in which tho house of tho brldo's grandmother
ou Fifth avenuo was adorned was a pleco of
'floral poetry. In tho green-room true lovers'
knots of pink flowers with long streamers of
ribbon, to which were attached great crescents
of American beauty roses, were set on tho
walls, making ono of tho most unique and
pronounced effects among tuomanv designs,
with which tho elegant mansion wa's decked
Among tho princely presents received by Miss
Thompson those from Mr. Cannon easily took
tho lead. Ono, a loving cup, Is made of gold
coins which ho had been for years collecting.
The cup is fashioned in antique design.
Another gift of tho groom's was a set of rubies
of tho rarest kjna, purchased in India by Mr.
Cannon and exquisitely reset by Tiffany. Ono
of tho bridesmaids was Miss Maudo Ledyard,
of Detroit, a great-granddaughter of Lewis
Cass. Of tho Juno weddings tho prettiest wo
have had, so far, was that of Miss Sophie
de Luzzara Verdi and Mr. Alfred Jerome
"Weston, of Now York, and that of Miss Mauro,
of this city, and Lieut. Ryan, of tho Navy.
Miss Verdi's wedding gown of whito china
cropo ombroidered in a pattern of lilies was
exceptionally beautiful. The maid of honor,
Miss Alida Helirlques, presented a most
charming picture in her dainty gown of
white Bilk mull. Mr. and Mrs. Weston will
go to housekeeping in Now York,
whero tho former is associated with
the Bcrlbnor6. "Travels in Egypt,"
an article appearing in tho current number of
Scribner's Magazine, is from the pen of Mrs.
Weston's husband. Tho marriage of Miss
Verdi and Mr. Weston took place tho Oth
instant, In St. Paul's P. E. Church. That of
Miss Mary M. Mauro and Lieut. Philip J.
ltyan was celebrated In Epiphany Church, at
high noon on Wednesday, Rev. Dr. McKIm
- ofliciatlng. The chancel was prettily set with
palms; vases filled with long-stemmed bridal
roses wero on tho altar. The bride walked up
the aislo leaning on the arm of her uncle, Mr.
Lewis Johnson Davis. There has not been
seen hero a prettier wedding gown. It was of
rich white brocade. The broad chiffon flounce
festooned across, the front was caught with
spray8 of oraugo blossoms. The tullevell was
held in place by clusters of the same symboli
cal flowers. Little Miss Isabel Mauro and
Miss May Arms, in pretty white dresses and
'Carrying baskets of La France roses, walked
ahead of the bride. An elegant wedding
breakfast was served after tho ceremony at
tho residence of Mr. Davis, on Highland Ter
race. Tho Secretary of the Navy, Lieut.
Ryan's chief, was ono of the witnesses of tho
The culmination of a Washington romance
was reached on Wednesday evening, in the
niarriago of Miss Tola Arguella, a wealthy
California heiress, to Mr. W. H. Hubbard, oi
New York. Miss Arguella, in company of
her sister, Mrs. Wilcox, arrived in- Washing
ton early in tho winter and the ladies estab
lished themselves in handsome apartments at
the Shoreham. Mr. Hubbard was living at
the samo hotel and tho acquaintance resulted
in the ceremony of Wednesday evening, tho
services being performed by Rev. Dr. Chapello,
of St. Matthew's. It would have been poetic
justice to have celebrated the marriage at tho
Shoreham, but the Arno was tho scene of the
nuptials. Tho brido was richly attired In
heavy whito faille, made very simply. The
future home of Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard will be
in this city.
There arc wedding functions in prospect all
through this month of roses. In tho last week
of Juuo will be celebrated in St. Matthew's,
at noon, the marriage of Miss Mathildo
-O'Toolo and Lieut. Michael Lanihan, of tho
Army. Tho brido is a daughter of Mrs.
Adelaide O'Toole, of thiscity, and a grand--daughtor
of LouIb Vivan, the pioneer French
-chef of Washington, who amassed a fortune
in tbo practice of his profession, one of his
daughters, Mrs. Joseph Redfern, of I street,
being looked upon as quite a wealthy woman.
Speaking of professions, the professional
gentleman imported by Mr. William Corcoran
Eustis In at present out of bondage, and it
Seems to bo a question of "what shall wo do
with himV" with the authorities. Had the
professional gentleman been less haughty, tho
minions of tbo custom-house would probably
have allowed him to pass unquestioned. But
the coachman evidently thought that
'Pationcola the virtue or an ass
That, trots beneath his burden and is qulot."
With-" tho strong English bias pervading
fashlonublo society, you mav Imagine what a
-subject of devouring Interest the baccarat
scandal is. Tho local interest is all tho
greater from tho fact that a younger brother
of Sir William Gordon-Cumming married a
Washington belle, and now resides In Carroll
County on a handspmo estate named "The
Clovers," whero ho and his wife dispense au
elegant hosp!tallt3', always spending a good
pariof tho winter In this city. Mrs. W- tells
mo that Mrs. Alestar P. Gordon-Cumming
was formerly Mies Fannio Eames, of Wash
ington, whoso father was a distinguished law
yer,par ticularly noted as an authority on points
of international law. Her mother, Mrs. Eames,
who has been dead only a few years, was, Mrs.
G says, ono of tho most brilliant and witty
women in society hero in ante-bellum days,
her reputation rivaling in these respects that
acquired by Mrs. Gen. Ricketts since tho
war. Mr. Gordon-Cumming characterizes tho
WilsouB as extremely ordinary people, which
probably means that they are not of the court
circle, which stands apart from tho rest of the
world. It is said that only the Queen and tho
middle classes are shocked and disturbed at
the revelations of the heir apparent's wander
ings and doings In by-paths. Upper circles
look upon these peccadilloes with perfect
serenity. They have read history and beliovo
In heredity. And what a talo is unfolded in
tho story of tho Princes of Wales of the
House of Hanover.
Our prince, Russell Harrlsou, disports him
self very little in Washington society, aud
will not take part in the triumphs of his wife
and sister during their Europeau tour. Mr6.
Harrison has given herself up to the quiet
enjoyments of her home life. She has not any
special day for receiving visitors, but when a
large number of persons desire the pleasure
of calling on ber Mrs. Harrison usually desig
nates a particular afternoon. There is one
Iolntou which the White House family is
very positive, and that is the discouragement
of tbo fashion of Sunday eveuing receptions.
This custom has obtained in Washington
through tho Diplomatic Corps, for foreigners
look upon these Informal social meetings as
no desecration or tho Sabbath. A largo con
tingent of society takes the samo view, but
tho ladles of the Whito House aro never seen
at Sunday receptions.
To go back to weddings. What is loft litre
of military socioty is "all agog" over tho
coming marriage of Gen. Schofleld and
Miss Georgia Kilbournc, of Iowa. Tho
Army and Navy Journal cave last week a 6ort
of ofliclal denial, and thero are many "doubt
ing Thomases" In tho Army circle. As the
date fixed by rumor is near at hand, "wo
shall sco what wo see" About a year ago
Gen. Schofleld's name was coupled with that
of Mrs. Kilpatrlck, widow of tho general of
that name, aud it was said that tho lady was
wining, uuc two uara-ueartcu uaugutcrs ob
jected with such obstinacy to their mother's
rec'ntranco into tho bonds of matrimony that
tho marriago project was abandoned. Mrs.
Kilpatrlck was in Washington only for a brief
visit during tho past season, so tho gossip died
a natural death. Miss Kilbournc was hero all
winter as tho guest of Gen. Schofleld's
daughter, Mrs. Andrews, and wo all know
what a powerful factor propinquity Is. So, my
dear, you may have tho plcasuro of reading of
tho mnrrlago festivities here, although the
ceremony, it Is said, Will bo performed In
Keokuk. Ever yours, Alice.
An Old-Time Colored Uendcr.
Thornton Davis, whoso death occurred last
week, was a well-known politician in tho days
of tho Feather-Duster regime. Among tho
colored race since then ho has led a quiet life,
and was best known to tho lawyers for his
politeness and efficiency as a janitor of law
buildings, and at tho last of tho Webster Law
Building, whero ho died. Ho was one of tho
oldest members of tho Capital City Guard,
tho crack colored corps of tho District Militia,
and ho was a scrgoant of tho corps when ho
retired. During tho oarly days of tho late
war ho was the body servant of Lieut. War
ren Fitzhugh, of tho so-called "Black-horse
Cavalry," but after tho first Bull Run ho con
cluded to cast his lot with thoFedcrals.and so
homado his way into their lines. But it is
certain, that, according to his statements and
descriptions of tho fight, ho charged with
troiuy isurier-B troopers in mo rear or tno
line, when they broke the ranks of the Brook
lyn Zouaves. He served Ave years in tho
Navy on the Tallapoosa. Ho leaves a widow
and three children. Ho was a member of
Pythagoras Lodge of Masons, and of Co. A,
Seventh Battalion, N. G. D. C.
