Each sea Washington run» over with heireasesa and pennllcaa girla, and widow, who come to Washington aa to a great matrimonial market, and wear themaelvee half out in the straggle to get Into and keep in society Rich men never come to hunt « 1 res In thia modern Smlthfield, and „hen a New York millionaire did take a I Washington bride It waa a pretty girl In straitened clrcumatancea, who had never been known in the society of army and nary germans and legation ball«. Y oung army and navy officer, are the most mercenary lot of all, and they Invariably save up their leaves of absence to spend them in Washington during the winter months. One miscreant in epaulets once horrified some married ladies by saying: "It pays us poor fellows on short com mons to pass a season in Washinton send ing bouquets and spending nil our money on the girls; for all the rich girls go there, anp their fortunes are only equivalents for the social positions that we can give them." Sometimes the gay speculators get terribly sold, as not every paper that pass es for a millionaire is really one, and heiress is a name very easily ticketed to a girl who dresses well. Recently there has been a notorious case of one of these uni formed fortune hunters getting the sup posed heiress aftei a long siege, only to find, too late, that the fortune was all in the air, vanished, gone up like smoke. To balance this there is the case of another young officer who, although engaged to a great heiress now in Europe finishing her french and buying her trousseau, longs tobe released from those golden fetters to marry a penny less orphan employed in one of the department» here. People who believe in the old fashioned love stories ad mire and sympathize deeply with this crooked course of true love, but his brother sfficers think the distracted youth a plain and simple lunatic. A joke is often told on one very punctil ious army officer, who in the course of frontier experiences found his ex-laundress the wife of a Congressman. The laun dress' rise and the growth of her husband's fortune could not bring the ladies of the fort to recognize her, and this particular officer, although now a General, could re member some stormy scenes, when, as a poor young lieutenant, he had scored and upbraided the laundress about matters of stirtch, buttons and plain mending. She fell in his way next at some celebration or event where her husband, the Congress man was in one of the front carriages of the procession, and she, the gorgeous figure, on the platform crowded with the distinguished people of the day. The Gen eral in his uniform was introduced and her voice and face sent his memory chasing backwards. Just about as the identity was becoming clear her talk went on to the winter that she had just passed in Wash mgton. Her comments on society and people at the capital wound up consolingly with this: "O, yes! I found, too, that army officers go in quite good society at Wash ington.' When this got into army gossip >t turnished as much amusement as a re mark that once rose above the hum of voices at a dinner party here when the ••me woman, who looked sixty and wore * raven-black wig over a face »earned with * hundred wrinkles, simperingly said: Yes, I mean to wear baby blue until I •m thirty."—Washington Cor.

Gladstone, with the courtly, old-time manner which distinguishes him, ex claimed. "Give me the honor of shaking your hand." Then continued, ou thank me for what I have done. I have done but little, but, with the help of God, I hope before long we shall have done much more."
