The "students' ball" to be given Feb ruary 12 at the New Willard promises to be one of the most brilliant events of the season. The object of the ball is one that appeals to all hearts?the care of the sick and suffering. The Columbian i'niversity Hospital was started a few years since in a very small way; a year ago the pressing for a larger building demanded greater el fort on the part of those having the work in charge, and the present hospital was erected. It contains private rooms and free wards for the poor, but receives no aid from Congress or the District government. The board of lady managers assumed the responsibility of furnishing the new hos pital, and it is under their auspices, and to aid them In meeting their indebtedness the ball is to be given. Mrs. Charles J. Bell. Mrs. C. W. Richardson and Mrs. Yarrow have the immediate charge of all the ar rangements. with the assistance of the board of lady managers, the faculty of tli" university and the students, who are deeply Interested and who will add to the evening the attractive features and enthusiasm that belong exclusively to a college ball. A number of prominent women will act as patronesses, and a number of the army and navy officers stationed here, with civilians, presidents of classes and students, will act as a floor committee. Again the request Is made that- the evening of the 12th of Feb ruary may be set aside for this entertain ment. To Cure Grip in Two Days. Laxative Bromo Quinine removes the riu*.
