HER POINT OF VIEW.
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
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
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

is much discussed. 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

scene of a pavilion In the palace of
Raratnila. Mateo and Giuseppe, m.'ig
nlllcently diossed. nie seated on two
thrones, occ upled In cleunlng the ciown
and tho sceptre. The Gondolleis ate
discovered dl eased, some as1 eourtlet",
otllceis of lank, etc., and othets as
private soldleis und servants of uni

with their new stations' Is shown by
the following which they sing heartily:
Of happiness the teiy pith

It seems that the fact that Maico and

Tint moie than all, Ulanotta and
Tessa desire especially to know which
of them If actually queen. 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. Thcr cott-
tadlno with castenets, the gondoliers
with tomboilnes, accompanied bv tho

ear. 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.
Giannetta and Tessa lp-te enter im
obseiveil and listen to the Gland In
qulsltor's announcement that the
Duke and Duchess of liaza Toro, with
their daughter faslldn, have arrived
In llirataila nnd aio expected anv mo
ment. Marco nnd (Jiilseppe leply that
theio coming Is nothing to them. Don
AUiambra expresses tho opinion that
the coming of the diuiKhtor makes a
great deal of dlffeieiice to them that
is. to one of tliem. and pioceeds to
explain that sho was married to th-i
king of Harntarla when they were both
InfnntH, and that the only thing left
now Is to decide which ot them Is
king. Thin announcement causes a
