Dr. William Tod llelmuth made a ery pleasing Impression on the occa sion of his tWt he ic- the other even ing. If Mr. B. II. Pratt patted his hair In the middle all the wa fiom his foiehead to the back of his neck he would bear a very close lesemblanee to the distinguished apostle of home opathy. In fact, Dr. Hehnuth looks eiy much like Lieutenant Greeley, al though the latter is consideiablv younger. The doctor lias such a suave and genial niunner that the allopathic physician who will not take him to his heait must he a. teiy haid-lie.u te d creature. Indeed But It wns Mrs. llelmuth who excit ed the most Intel est. A large poition of the audience In the fiont of the hall at the Albiight llbiary the other night sat In a bias soil of fashion nnd made Itself nearly noss-eyed In endeavoilng to catch a glimpse of Mis. llelmuth, midway down the room, and at the same time pay polite attention to tho elegant gentleman who wns occupying the floor. Xow Ml. llelmuth is a plump, lound-fneed lady of middle height, with a certain grace of caulage and a decided graclousness of manner which people And most attractive. It's a ttlck worth cultivating to bo able to make- each person who talks with you live minutes believe that you aio ex tremely Interested In her. I cheerfully icconimcnd this hint to young men in society, who are rather prone to con duct themselves on tho plan that It Isn't wot th while to be agreeable ex cept to tho fair young girls whom all the fellows want to marry, foi getting that a little haunless civility to the matrons, who chiefly do the entertain ing of tlie season, may have Its com pensation In securing friends nt court as well as tending to provide a miracu lous outfit of loaves and fishes indefi nitely Some young men, you know, seem to labor under the hallucination that tho pleasure of seeming them for a dinner paity or the satisfaction of having them within call when out of town girls are guests in the house, Is as much bliss as any reasonable hos tess has any light to expect in this world, and that there the obligations for couitcsles end. But dear me! Wheie was I at? Oh, Mrs. llelmuth. And hero I nm sajlng unkind things to the young men. win u ung men never lead this column. Well, sho"hasa way" with her, as tho young man said of the lasclnatlng young woman In the balind. It's a nice way and makes you actually bo liete that inside her blessed head ate bomo such Ideas as these, us she greets you. "Oh, heio Is somebody who Is really Interesting. I'm glad I rame. We uro fiultu congenial In thought I do wish the other people would stay In the background und let us talk to each other." Of course, she doesn't say ull this. In fact, sho says very little, but she somehow gives jou tho Impression thnt she'd like to say something of the kind, nnd you leluctantlv pass on, metaphorically patting yourself on the head. It Is so nice to meet people who send ou on patting yourself on tho head. They are the Jugglers of tho world who can transform the hay, wood and stubble of life Into the rich lustra of Jewels and gold by tho magical alchemy of their deftness nnd tact. I know two such women in this city. There are others, but I'm only going to mention theso now. One Is stately und magnificent lu pose nnd queenly In face and form. Sho has always tho nlr of tho great lady she Is, but more than all this, sho has a sweet graclous ness, nn unconscious flattering tone In her very volco that makes you feel warm all around your heart. It Is such a good feeling and causes you to re joice that tho dear .ord mndo some women lofty In spirt, noble nnd pittc of thought, and yet so slender and wo manly, Instead of narrow and earning and critical. This Is all veiy fresh lu my mind because I wus talking with her only yesterday. And the other woman? Oh, I like to speak of her. She Is little und dainty, with a tidiness of mind that a monarch might envy, and a brilliance of wit thnt would make her fortune In almost any sphere. She has graces and accomplishments unnumbered, but better than nil, sho has this same In definite chaim of manner that en thralls the foitunate ones who come within her atmosphere. I wish she would tell her seciet to ine. Some tnuy say It is ton good to be tine; that it Is only a dazzling spntkle on the sur face, and doesn't eome fiom the henit, hut I can't believe Hint, and, anyway, I'd talher have her Just ns she is even If iiipposlng which I am not that she doesn't quite mean It till. It makes my heart warm at any rate, and that Is u blessing 'In this world, vheie theio me so many other people who give me- a chill. But the wnv I do wander fiom Mis. llelmuth! Well, you tan see nt once why she gets to be president of wo men's club nnd Is so much ndnilied' by her own sev. It is that "way" of hois. She Is feminine and dainty and cor dial, and she has a ilelt, Ilatteilng glance that takes you all In. Then she likes people. You can tell that. She Is actually Inleiested In them and their plans. Of eouise, she Is a club woman. She was gileted to Und that Seianton had not ndvanccel mole In that dliectlon, and enthusliistlcalb de e hired that we nie missing n gient deal In not tiylng to do mint- for women in general in one gicat conceited incite ment. She evinced considerable Intel -est In the Green Itldge Women's club, and no doubt could hate been of gieat assistance to that enteipilslng slstel hood had her advice been sought. What did she wear? As If that niat teis. And et you know and 1 know and everybody Knows that ll does mat ter a lot. The woman who dresses well and that may not nn an epen sltely has, ten advantages uter the one who goes about looking fmwsy and dowdy, with a two-ye'ai-uld tut to htr sKlit and a queer bat. Mis. llelmuth wus gowned In blown, diagonally striped with black a ihh and beautiful material. It fitted to perfection and was elegant In cut. The fiont had a pretty silk vt of a ualo color, with an Intricate seiles of lapels of shaded el vet. The little Lonnet worn with It was entliely haiinonlous In hue nnd rested gimefullv on her prettily aiinnged giay hall. It Is said of her that she never makes a mis take in die. which Is inui- than win be said of the average woman m the iim tagt- liiudlste. Dear me! I had a long list uf u semhlnnees routi United bt many liiends, who consider that last week's efforts lu that diiectlon weie most In complete, but the printer mail dec l.iu-s that these lemarKs must come to an end sometime and pathetically Imiulies 'Why not now?"

Would you mind giving a synopsis of tho onera In the "Question Hot?" 1 nm sure thoio urc many besides myself who would bo greatly interested In It. In last Satin day's "Question Box" we left the Gondoliers with Marco and Giuseppe, who wcio to act together as King, cinbatklng on the "Xebeqiie" for tho Hand of Baiatiitla. where all nie- to Jin engageu in me Hiinus oi state.

The Gondolleis ate discovered dl eased, some as1 eourtlet", otllceis of lank, etc., and othets as private soldleis und servants of uni ons degtees. That they aio dellghte 1 with their new stations' Is shown by the following which they sing heartily: Of happiness the teiy pith lu Paralalia jou nnv ce A monarchy that's tempered with Rupilbllial. eciunlltv.

They aie told that that question can not be de cided until the old nurse has been luousht. The matter of special lmpoi t anco now before- the mint Is how to fitly celebrate the honeymoon and they decide to danco tho "cachucha." Hero follow f the danelns of that celebrated Spanish dunce, which Is the most beau tiful featuie of the opera.

It Is llrst danced by the Iloynl nuaititte, the otheis In the meanwhile slimlns, and afterwards all dance to the accompaniment of the orchestra. Tho dance is suddenly Intciruptcd by the unexpected appeal anei- of tho "Clrand Inquisitor," Don AUiambra. who looks on with astonishment. Mar co and Giuseppe appear embaiassed. Tho others mil olf. Hcte follows an ainushur dlulocue between Don Al hambtu and the KIur-, that Is. jratco and flluseppe. The Urn ml Inquisitor was shocked In seeing a footman dnnc liiK. but 1h promptly Informed that It was the "Lord HiKh rootman." Ht then mentions having seen u "com mon littlo (liummer boy," but was told that It was tho "Lord High Drum mer Hoy." Tills docs nrjt satisfy his Ideas of courtly customs and he pro ceeds to enlighten Marco and Oluseppe on courtly etiquette, following it up with a song.

Thin announcement causes a sensation. Tessa and Giannetta now tonu forward, and, upon the Grand Inquisitor asking who they are, ho Is curtly told that they aro tho wives of Maieo mid Gulseppe. Tho young ladles ate new in great dlsttess, Ono of them Is properly married nnd the other Isn't. Now who Is and who Isn't?
