New York. March 5. The ship's com rany that left this port on January 21, Jn Jay Gould's former yacht Atalanta, transformed into the gunboat Restaura tlor. under Venezuelan colors and equip ped with showy naval uniforms and hope of attaining Venezuelan commissions, t ave returuned home on the liner Phil adelphia. They were gone over a month, although they expected to deliver the boat to the Venezuelan government in ten days. . The yacht was sold to the Venezuelan government, early in January and con stitutes the entire Venezuelan navy. Her armament consisted, when jhe sailed of four six pounder Hntchkiss puns, a three I ounder. and two two pounders, and she vas loaded with ammunition. Captain Jeremiah Merithew was in command. Under him were forty-six men. Slgnor Kebrum went along an the representative of the South American re public. The men shipped under a con tract stipulating that a month's wages would be paid in any event, and their passage back. All that would be re quired of them was to deliver the boat :ver to the government at La Guayra. Then they could return or take set vice In the cause of the republic. The first night at sea the ship ran Into a storm which damaged her consider ably and raged four days. It was de cided to run into San Juan, but the coal :ad given completely out before that ( on was reached. The cabin furnishings, whiea had been in the yacht since the" days of Jay Gould, were iumped into the furnaces; fancy wood paneling, por uers. carpets and tables, and finally the provisions such of them as would burn rapidly into the fires. In tan Juan the Kestaurador lay from January 3 to .February 6. being repaiied and refitted. Mere she was joined by another agent of the government. After departure from San Juan, according to the story of one of the crew, the vessel was ordered to bombard the town of Carupano, held supposedly by the rebels. The guns had been trained on the town when it was learned from a flag that the town had been recaptured by the government. Shortly after this a num ber of prisoners were placed on board the littie gunboat. Among the prisoners ! was the insurgent general commanding in that part of the country. He had been sentenced to be shot, but it had been decided to send him to La Guayra and thence to Caracas, where the sentence w as to be carried out. He was hopelessly crushed and spoke to nobody. As long as the boat was visible from the town 3ms wdfe and daughters stod upon a frigh peak of rocks gazing after him. The vessel ran aground on the island of Coche. in the Straits of Margarita. She staid there until early in the morn ing of the L'th. She was pulled off by a tug and a German and a Dutch steamer that happened along. On the same day the vessel touched at three other small ports, two of which were tVaunda and Cumana. at which the took on more prisoners and soldiers. The ship got inot La Guayra on Febru ary IS. The ship was no sooner in port and the prisoners and soldiers discharged than the government put the skipper, Ids officers and most of the men ashore. They were paid in Venezuelan silver w hich was eventually exchanged bv the authorities at eighty cents on the dollar into American gold. Captain .Merithew said that President Castro inquired of him about John Jacob Astor's steam yacht Xourmahal, and that he learned afterward from the min ister of finance that negotiations were In progress for the purchase of the yacht.

COMING DRAMATIC EYEXTS. One of New Tork's great successes has been a version of Nell Qwytn, two sim ilar versions of which have also captured the London theater-going public. Con sequently, Nell Gwynns of all degrees have sprung up throughout the theatri cal world. One is Alberta Gallatin, who is to appear at the Grand tonignt In an entirely new play, based upon authentic historical Incidents pertaining to the reign of King Charles II. cf England. This romantic drama was written by Cator Heverin, a young Philadelphian of dramatic ability, w ho has given to the stage a work of splendid originality, and afforded Miss Gallatin an opoprtunity of making the success of her career as an actress. Miss Gallatin wears some very elaborate and expensive dresses, two of which are imported French creations, one which is especially striking, having been designed by Felix of Paris. Miss Gallatin's ability as an actress Is en hanced in the popular eye by iier excep tional beauty and grace.

Washington, March 5. The culminat ing event of the inaugural festivities was the inaugurual ball held in the vast auditorium of the pension office with men and women distinguished in every walk of life touching elfcvws. dancing and mingling with the plain American citizen. As a spectacular event it was unparalleled in the history cf inaugural balls, in the sumptuousness of arrange ment, in the splendor of decorations and of marvelous electrical effects, and in the countless throng taking part in the spectacle. When the doors of the great structure were thrown open at 8 o'clock an eager crowd besieged every entrance and lines of carriages stretched into the surround ing streets and avenues. Platoons of police officers, mounted and unmounted guarded the outer entrances, keeping back the rush of curious spectators and bringing order out of the tangle of car riages. Through the long arched en trances hung with bunting and vines, passed -the merry, pleasure seeking throng, the women in luxurious gowns. with the flash of jewels in their hair and at their throats. Soon the vast interior of the building began to take on life and animation. The early comers busied themselves in viewing the exquisite beauties of the scene. The decorations of the ball room had yellow for their predominant tone. No cumbersome effect of light or color was in evidence but above and on all sides stretched wavy, rippling canopy of yel low bunting that covered the walls and skylight, and w as broken only where the lining of the president s balcony at tne west end stood out white in bold relief. Myriads of yellow electric bulbs glowed and blinked like fireflies in the garlands of green that entwined the scores of pil lars supporting the galleries and shone out from the stars and bars of the big American shields which, in the midst of clusters of American flags, hung high up in the center of each side of the im mense crowded hall. This scheme of decoration with yel low as the all-predominating color was a radical departure from the decorative plan at the last inaugural ball, llien three great floral bells, studded with col ored lights, were the most prominent feature of the work. This year the soft light effect given by the broad expense of golden color everywhere was in sharp and favorable contrast. The subdued yellow glow from the thousands of frost ed electric bulbs made- the great hall as bright as midday. The big fountain in the center of the hall had a billcwy mass of the purple bouganillea, the flower of the Philippines. In the midst rose tall palms and ferns burying scores of yellow light blossoms ana around ths border, fringed with the white spire, were placed gilded urna of growing plants and nowers. In the extreme west of the hall stood the president's balcony. decked with groups of Roman wreaths and bunches of American Beauty roses bound wun bright colored ribbons. Above the. ex ecutive's stand flashed a big shield of hand embroidered silk topped with fine stuffed specimen of the great America r. eagle. iiown at the eastern end was the big stand erected for the musicians. It comprised an upper and lower story, the former for the stringed orchestra and the latter for the accommodation of the big inaugural chorus and the brass band. Back of the singers and musicians was a gilded sounding board which threw the strains to- all part3 of the big hall. In front hung a beau tiful design symbolic of the muse of Melody, in the shaoe of a giant green lyre with strings of purple ribbon, and on either side crossed musical instru ments; on the left a lute and trumpet and on the right a guitar and pipe ail fashioned of green lencothe with strings of purple. The balustrades and archways pre sented a brilliant scene. No less than 76 stars formed each of eleven frosted electric globes, were set between the arches on the ground floor and shown radiant through a network of greens against a background glinting with powdered glass. Suspended beneath each star and below draped festoons of smilax, were .shimmering trailers of green and electric bulbs, tipped with a yellow globe. The gilt pillars were en shrouded in vines and greens, and above the blight circlets of light that crowned them were placed invisible boxes of growing tulips, daffodils, aza lias, and jonquils. In the second bal cony the same scheme of decoration was carried out. excepting that in lieu of the stars were hung electric lights in clusters of three, covered with soft yel low transparent paper and producing a beautiful effect. Back under the balcon ies on the ground and second floors, wreaths of green were hung at regular intervals, linked by loops of vines and smilax. Twenty-six additional posts had been placed on the top balconv, each on---surmounted by a glowing bulb of light. Between them and bordering the rail ing of the balcony all the way around, were boxes of cut and growing' flowers In great profusion of color. Two endless chains of light studded green below the balconies looped and swung completely around the immense hall, each loop end a hive of brilliant yenow giooes, each trailing streamer' alive with tiny glowlights. Off to the side, on the second bal cony, were the president's and vice president's rooms, the diplomats' room and the forty other rooms, appropri ately embellished for public reception and promenade. The president's room was draped entirely in white and made beautiful with pink ribbons, orchids and greens. The other rooms held to the all pervading yellow, decorated with flags, flowers and smilax. In the diplomatic room tne nags or all nations were clustered and intertwined, and lent a brilliant background for the gorgeous uniforms and regalia of the diplomatic officials. Alongside the main building had been built a large dining hall, deco rated in red and white and hung with greens. The expense of the decorations entire is set down at about $45,000. The floral and electric decorations came to nearly $20,000. there being no less than 15.000 electric lights involved in the Illumina tion. The United States Marine band ad an orchestra of over a hundred piefes were stationed at one end of the hall. and for an hour before the arrival of the presidential party played patriotic aiis. The presidential party arrived at 10-15 o'clock. They were preceded bv a glit tering array of officers in full uniform, and were escorted to the private office of commissioner fcvans, which had been lavishly decorated. The nresident bowed and smiled as he passed through tne throng, senator and Mrs. Hanna. Lieut. General and Mrs. Miles, several Justices of the supreme court of the United States with their wives and a number of the cabinet circle joined the party upstairs. TJie crowds on the mam floor had been pushed back to make 1 "For Grip and the after-effects like debility, nervousness, dyspepsia and other catarrha. conditions resulting from the Grip, . in the entire Materia Medica I have found no remedy that equals Peruna for prompt action. Dr. S. B. Hartman, President The Hart man Sanitarium. LIKE3 A DEMON grip has crossed our country, leaving behind scores of physical wrecksL Never in the history of medicine has a. remedy received such unqualified and universal eulogies as Peruna. Victims of catarrh of the head, ca tarrh of the throat, catarrh of the lungs, catarrh of the stomach, catarrh of the kidneys, catarrh of the pelvic organs, are to be counted by hundreds of thou sands. Grip is epidemic catarrh, and sows the seeds of chronic catarrh within the system. This is so true that few grip sufferers are able to make a complete recovery until they have used Peruna. A New York Alderman's Experience. Hon. Joseph A. Flinn, alderman Fifth District, writes from 104 Christopher street. New York City, as follows: "When a pestilence overtakes our people we take - precaution as a nation to preserve the citizens against the dread disease. "La grippe haa entered thousands of our homes this fall, and I noticed that the people who used Peruna were quick ly restored, while those who depended on doctors' prescriptions, spent weeks in room for the grand march, and the band was ready to break into the opening strains of the march from "Tann- hauser," but word came that Mrs. Mc- Kiuley was indisposed, and that the president would remain by her side. The march consequently was abandoned. The band struck up Straus' "Blue Dan ube." and the first regret of the as semblage at missing the grand march, with the president and the first lady of the land at Its head, gave way before the whirl of gavetv on the ball room floor. Vice President and Mrs. Roosevelt arrived about the time the president came in. After paying their respects to th nresident and holding an informal levee amid the groups of governors, offi cers, senators and distinguished officials, the vice president and his wife proceed ed to the ball room floor.

A young lady in Corry, Pa., was ser iously ill aa the result of two serious falls, and from overwork, was an inva lid for 5 years. She says: . "It. was im possible to gain strength. I liad to lie down most of every afternoon whether I had company, work or pleasure i wanted ever so much to enjoy. "Two months ago I began using Grape-Nuts Food and experienced a gain in strength at once. In less than a week I did not require more than an hour's rest, and now whe"n I have eati my dinner, of which Grape-Nuts fortes the most part, I am not obliged to go to bed, but go to work or play instead I am alwavs hungry for Grape-Nuts, for they satisfy some craving I can scarcely define.

I suffered with a severe backache, indi gestion, and numerous ills, so I could neither eat nor sleep, and I thought I would give up my work, which I could not. afford to do.

The skirt was veiled in soTt French lace dra peries, caught at each side by graceful loops of satin ribbons. On the low cor sage these same designs were carried out. Strings of pearls were worn around her neck, from which depended a magnificent ostrich tip fan. An aigrette of ostrich tips was worn in her hair, caught in place by a magnificent crescent of pearls and diamonds. President McICinley held an Informal re ception in the upper corridor, Lieutenant General Miles acting as chief of the re ception committee to escort distinguished guests to the president. Mrs. McKinley's indisposition was of brief duration, as she was soon able to join the president and the brilliant as semblage in an embowered box overlook ing the gav throng below. The president occupied a seat at the right near the rail with Mrs. McKinley at his side. To their left sat the vice president and Mrs. Roose velt. Near the -vice president was Gov ernor Odell of New.
