GOSSIP OF THE GIRLS.
Aucu CONFIDIJS TO l,ouisi$ THIS
Goings On in "Washington.
My Dkau Louise: There arc two pros
pective marriages looming up that are
full of interest (o Washington socioty.
The first to tnlco place and the most
important, is that of Miss Lullu Eustls to Mr.
Thomas Hitchcock, jr. The wedding will bo
devoid of all "fuss and fcutbers" a quiet
ceremony performed uccording to the ritual of
the Catholic Church, into whoso communion
tho bride-elect has lately entered. The rela
tives of Mies Eustls and Mr. Hitchcock with
a few very close friends, will bo the only wit
nesses of tho ceremony. All the members of
tho Eustls family aro now gathered at Man-cbestor-by-tho-sca,.
where tho wedding will
tako place late In August. Miss Eustls Is a
person of interest hero more through family
ties and groat wealth than anything else.
Except in early childhood very little of her
life has been .passed hero. From her grand
mother, wife of tho lato W. W. Corcoran,
and from her mother, she Inherited a delicatq
constitution, and tbe climate of "Washington
seemB unfavorable to her health. With her ,
aunt, Miss Celeste Eustls, Miss Lullo Eustis
has mostly spent tho winters at Aiken, S. C. ,
When on this sidu of tho Atlantic, Man
chester has always been her favorite summer
residence. I understand that though the
Corcoran mansion on II 6treet is 'seldom
called upon to open its doors to Its owners,
they do not desiro to rent it, but will have it
kept in such shape that it may bo ready for
occupancy at any time any one of the
three owners should deelro to Bpend a lone
or short period under its roof.
This, to my mind, shows a most
becoming reverence for thp people 'that
are gone, and "the days that aro not." I am
told that tho only time the mansion has ever
been occupied by strangers was 'during the
war, when tbe house was tho French legation,
and Minister and Madame dc MontLolon pre
sided over Its elegant hospitalities. Mr. Cor
coran, who was suppoeed to jiave a certain
sympathy with tho Confederacy, was
then in Europe, and as all large build
ings wero taken possession of for the
Government use, bo requested his friendj
Dr. Montholon, to make the property French
territory by establishing the legation within
its walls. In the union of Mr. Hitchdock and
Miss Lulie Eustis there will bo a-strOng'bond
of sympathy, as both aro enthusiastic lovers of
horse ilesh, and enjoy to the utmost the de
lights of tho hunt.
Miss Mary Lincoln, daughter of the Amer
ican minister to London, is true to her love
and her country. Her's is tho second of the
prospective marriages. It Is to be celebrated
in London in tho fall, and Mr. Charles Isham,
of New York, Is tho groom-olect. The Amer
can eagle ought to flop its wings at this news,
for Miss Lincoln has certainly had her chance
at the aristocracy. I have always thought
Nellie "Grant Sartorls' preference for England
just about showed the calibre of General
Grant's children. She, who had such a bright,
happy childhood and brilliant girlhood, who ,
was the very Idol of her parents, and who was'
so young at tho time General Grant's luck
came to nlm that she can have no early rec
ollections that are not glorified by hlB success,
now turns her back on America and openly
avows her love for England, where she must
have suffered keen mortification and heart
sickness through her husband's conduct.
The Lincoln!, I am told, arovery unpopular
in England as far as their own country people
are concerned. There are no festivities at
the American legation. Mrs. Lincoln Ib only
Been at court functions, as a matter of official
duty. This is natural, considering the great
sorrow that befell Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln In
the death of their only son little more than a
year ago. But to tho gay world, i,is no, ex
cuse. It is argued that the most onerous duty
of a foreign minister In this age of electricity
and peace, is to make a show to keep before
the world tho prestige of tho nation repre
sented, and representatives who wish to live
as exceedingly quiet private citizens, should
retire to the shades of domestic llfei
Julia, who is in England, writes me such
gossip about tho Hon. Robert T. and his wife.
1 answered her that she must respect our two
traditions in Europe Minister Lincoln and
Colonel Frederick Grant, both of whom are
there, because they aro the sons of their
fathers. It is astonishing how little reaches
us of the doings at tho American legation In
Vienna, considering that Mrs. Frederick
Grant presides there. But tho elegance of
Minister Reid's surroundings and entertain
ments in Paris, seem to throw all tho other
American legations in Europe in the shade.
Mr. and Mrs. Held reside in the Comtesse de '
Grammont's house in the Avenue Hoche.
The mansion is imposing in outside ap
pearance, and spacious within. The entertain
ments given by tho Reids match the house and
are in every way calculated to Increase respect
for the stars and stripes.
At Newport there aro prospects of several
notable marriages in tho immediate future.
Cupid asserts himself oven there occasionally.
Miss May Caldwell, after a porlod of retire
ment, is again a subject of gossip, She is said
to have laid aside her great ambition for a
title, having found by her experience with
Prince Murat that such things como very high,
and now sho is going to let "money go to
money" by combining her wealth with that of
a plain American citizen. Should Miss Cald
well complete her arrangements for the pur
chase of tho Bancroft cottage on tho cliffs Bhe
will have built a villa eclipsing in oleganco
and cost any other In Newport Baroness
Zedwitz will soon arrive in Now York, but,
I understand, has said good-bye to the city of
Moxlco. Tho loveliest of Newport's roses in
its "garden of girls," Miss Sallie Hargous, is
to he married during tho prcsont month, and
Mies Marguand's wedding comes oil before
that of Miss Hargous', Mrs. Amelle Rlves
Chauler sailed from France by the La Gascoigne
on Tuesday and is due at Newport, where sho
has a cottage, about August 3, Bhe is going
to assume tho sometimes very disagreeable
role of chaperono. The Missess Chanler are
the young ladles she will Introduce to the elect
"The little rift within the lute" hast just
shown itself in tho society of the Daughters
of America, but Mrs, Flora Adams Darling,
tbe deposed head-centre, doesn't propose to
allow it to makmaer music mute. It will
probably be a fight somewhat after the order
of Phrcbe Cozzens with the lady managers of
the World's Fair. "How beautiful it is to
Bee brethreu dwell together in unity." Why
can't the sisters ? Head me this riddle !
Ever yours, Alice.

Tho law in tho State, of New York by which
criminals aro executed by ,elcctricity forbids
the publication of the details ot such execu
tion in newspapers. Tho law is obviously
unconstitutional, interfering as it docs with
tho liberty of tho press. It was violated by
almost every journal in the State, and tho dis
trict attorney of New York City has taken
proceedings against ono city paper as a tost
case. Tho grand jury has indicted Air.
Charles O'Connor Ilenncssy, the city editor of
tho Now York Daily News, who made himself
especially conspicuous in obtaining tho news
of tho executlou for hU paper. This gentle
man waB known as tho youngest city editor In

new cure for tuberculosis. He says he has ex
perimented with it for the' laBt twelve years,
and that ho Is perfectly sure of his results.
Prolessor Schuller ia a surgeon and conse
quently his experiments have mostly been
made in cases of so-called surgical tuberculo
sis, such as affcctiqns of tho joints, bones,
glands, lupus, etc. He says, however, that
he has treated successfully some cases of tu
berculosis of tho lungs.. His remedy is
"Gualcol," an extract from boxwood, andalso
the active principle of creosote. Ho says be
was the first to Introduce this extract Into the
materia nicdica. He has made numerous ex
periments upon animals and in 1880 com
menced to treat human patients with "Gual
col," which he at first applied In the form of
an injection. Later on as tho result of his ex
perience he began to use the medicine in
ternally in very small doses, and in rare cases
by Inhalation. He uses "Gualcol" mostly in
connection with iodoform injections into the
affected parts. Ho cites 100 cases treated by
him, of which 70 wero absolutely cured, 16
Improved, 4 died and 10 passed beyond his
observations. Among these were 5 cases of
lupus, all of which wero permanently cured;
23 cases of strumous affections of the glands,
of which 21 were cured; 59 cases of tuber
culosis of the joints or bones, of which 37
wore cured; 10 cases of spinal tuber
culosis, of which four were cured and three
improved. The treatment extended in each
case over a long period of time, and allowed
of accurate observation of each patient from

THE "HOIiY COAT OF TRIER."
Tho Garment Supposed to Have IJoon
Worn ly tlie Saviour.
Tiuer, Aug. 1. The "Holy Coat of Trier,"
the garment supposed to have ueen worn by
the SaViour, will be exhibited at tho cathedral
hero for six weeks, commencing August 18.
Fully two millions of pilgrims are expected to
visit Trior during that time. An earnest and
long controversy has been waged regarding
the genuineness of tho relic.
Chaplain Dasbach, Member of tho Prussian
Diet and ono of tho committee for tho exhi
bition of tho Holy robe, thluks there can be
no possible doubt as to its genuineness. It has
been exhibited only twice durinc this cen
turyin 1810 and 1844.
Many miracles aro claimed to hayo been
performed by this robe, and it is said to still
Sossess great merit. Tho relic is said to have
cen given as a present to the bishopric of
Trier by St. Helen, the mother of Emperor J
uonstanune, upon tuo jatter's conversion to
Tho robe itself Js a tunic about live feet
long, cut narrow at tho shoulders and gradu
ally widening toward the knees. It is woven
out of ono peico, wjthout any seam whatever.
The material is supposed to have, been linen,
but its great ago prevents any exact examina
tion. It is inclosed in an outer cosing of
purple and gold cloth, supposed to have been
added some time in the seventh century in
order to preserve the relic, During the exhi
bition extra trainB will be run daily to Trier
from Coblenz and Cologne.
The Xtata'8 Crew.
San Fbahcisco, Aug, 1, Louis W. Mar
tinez, aide-de-camp to General Montt, of the
Chilian insurgents, stated to-day that Marshal
Gard, at San Diego, had ordered Captain Mun
sen, of the Itata, to take all his men ashore
and keep them in lodging until legal proceed
ings are over. The expenso of this will bo
very heavy, and as the machinery of tho Itata
has been uushipped this action is apparently
not necessary to prevent her running away,
General Montt has ordered Munsen not to
obey the order unless Gard brings soldiers to
force compliance, He thinks the Marshal has
exceeded his power in tho matter.
A BABY GIVEN AWAY.
If Its Parents Cannot JJo Found the Police
Will Adopt It.
Millie Harper, a bright-looking colored girl,
was standing at tho corner of New York avo
nuo and Thirteenth street last night when
another colored woman approached and aBked
her to hold a little baby sho had In her arms
while she went and procured some milk for Jt.
Tho girl complied and tho woman disappeared
around tho corner, and that was tho last
seen of her. Tho girl became alarmed at the
woman's failure to return, and for a time
hardly knew what to do with the baby, but
concluded that it was best to turn it over to
the police. Sho carried it to the First
precinct, where Station -keeper Ilollins
turned it over to that humane woman,
Matron Pennyfield. The baby is a little
chubby boy, pretty as a pictnro, and as
healthy a looking baby as one could And any
where. It has the brightest eyes, and last
nleht it ate its supper o"f crackers and milk
in the presence of a number of reporters and
policemen in tho most cheerful manner,
The men of the Third precjnet think seriously
of adopting it in case the parents of the child
are not found.
