tion to Aclvertiso Tlmsa 3Ir. Kendal's
Opinions of American Women.
The Kendals are on American soil again.
They opened in New York not long ago in Pi
nero's play "The Squire," -which was writ
ten for them, and ware received with open
arms. Of all the artists England has sent
across tho sea probabl the Kendals have
as warm n corner in American hearts na
any. Though America is a country of di
vorces and tremendously jumbled mar
riage laws, particularly among stage folks,
still it can appreciate the beauty of holi
ness in wedlock and its commercial value
as u means of advertising. For thero is no
question that the virtue and fidelity of the
lives of the Kendals have been as valuable
to them as the most sensational divorce to
the average professional.
The Kendals are an charming off the
Btago as they are before the footlights.
They are frank, unaffected and genuine.
Mr. Kendal is the avenigo well dressed.
vell bred English gentlmian. .Mrs. Ken
dal is the breezy, bonny, genial gentle
woman, the play of whose speaking eyes
and expressive hands one finds most fas
cinating. She clip all her "g's" in most
approved Anglo fashion, and has a cunning
schoolgirl way of speaking of every object,
animate and inanimate, as a "thing."
Thus her son is "this dear old thing," tho
new bonnets are "tho drollest, funniest
little Hat tMngs," and "The Old Home
stead" is "tho sweetest thing."
I had a charming chat with the lady tho
other afternoon in her apartments at tho
Victoria. "Came in here," she hospitably
cried, and led me into her bedroom, where,
sitting in the cushioned window seat, sho
called my atx;ntion to the view. "Sec
that," she wild enthusiastically. "Oh, if
jou could know how I enjoy looking out
upon this view! Fancy, if one were to
look from a London hotel window one
would see nothing but fog. Oh, this atmos
phere is delightful!''
She wore a dainty tea gown of peach
gray cashmere besprinkled with white
polLadots. The lront was of soft white
India silk, and fastening her collar was an
American flig of red. whito and blue
"1 am very proud of this," she said, tak
ing it off and handing it to mo for my in
flection. "1 havo never seen one like it.
I had it made in London. Of course 1 am
glad to como back: that goes without say
ing. Ilad I not wanted to come bock I
ehould not be here. We shall just iloublo
the time of our last season's engagements.
For example, we arc to play eight weeks
in Now York, when last season we played
"In Chicago we shall be a month instead
of -a fortnight. My gowns? Oh, well, my
frocks are never much to look at, you
know New in 'Tho Squire' I wear only
tbep!aint,simple&tlittlocotton frock, but
son etimes I tbinkthosebimplelittlcthings
are more effective than tho most superb
costumes. I will show jou some of tho
very latest PanMiui things in trimmings,"
ami from t he recea of her dressing table
fcne brought forth things indescribably
beautiful Gold bands studded with tur
quoises, aori wonderful girdle-, of moon
light lieads with hhiniug clasps of bilver
and irklecent bugles..
TJicse girdles can bo worn at one side,
arrosa the waist, or are fastoncsl from
shoulder to shoulder. A most exquisite
one Is aligned to wear with a beautiful
grein brocade dinner gown.
The g iffii vvhicli Mrs. Kendal wore to
tli theatre on n.ht list week was of
brown cashmere, a plain skirt bordered
w ill n Iwml of brown velvet, headed with
giid puhscmpnterie studded with mock
tiitquoikCR. The bodice has a vest and
back piece of turquoise silk laid in lino
plana, and full gathered s!eees of tur
quoise silk. With this lovely Truck a light
blue bonnet was worn.
.Mrs. Kendal spoke approvingly of the
great opportunity for work which women
hae "in thv ttatc "
"1 am glad thoro is so much chance for
womeu hore," bho said, "it is much more
formation lien than with us Of course
In England ladies utke more of an interest

go in for pol.uo to a great extent. Bnt
now take your work the newspaper busi
ness Why, it's uinaxuig how much you
Amctican women arc accomplishing in
journalism. It's very gratifying, I think."
Mrs. Kendal was very enthusiastic over
cert.uu American womn who have made
arustiu and social successes in London, and
especially cited the cases of Agnes Hunt
in loji and Ada Italian.
'The great charm of Miss Hunt ingdon is,
1 th:ik, her jiorVc t modosty Here is this
beautiful girl who takes the role of a man
on the stage, and who never once by word,
look, walk or action reminds you that a
woman Is musqucrading as a man.
Miss Huntingdon has everything youth,
beauty, talent in her favor, but to
my mind her greatest charm is
her modesty But Ada Italian it is not
possible to exaggerate the immense success
artistically and socially of that young
woman. The verdict was unanimous for
her f he newspapers columns of praise
one nover heard the like bofore. She is so
very clever, and that fascinating voice
bho deserved it alL 1 admire the Duchess
of Marlborough immousoly. She is a very
eenutiful woman, and has boon much ad
mired in London.
"Mine. Valda, the opora singer, who is
Mrs. Cameron, wife of a very well born
Scotchman, is very good sort, too We
know her husband's family well. Oh, tho
Anienoan women are clever enough to
bold their own and more in London.
"1 have so enjoyed this last week," she
continued. "I have been every night and
mutiuce to tho theatre. Shall" 1 tell you
whura 1 have seon 'The Old Homestead'

'Maiatur of Woodbarrow,' which is a pretty
play 1 had a beautiful week."
Though tho mother of fivo children, de
spite the fact that she has scon society and
the gay world thoroughly. Mrs. Kendal is
yet as enthusiastic and impulsive as a girl
in her teens. She is not repressive, bat
npontsneons. She doas not believe it is
jrood form to conceal all one's emotions
and constantly wear a mask, but on the
contrary speaks her mind freely and gen
erously and beenir. to get about all thero is

On a through uistern train of the Penn
sylvania railroad one day all tho seats in
the car were taken except two. A lady sat
in one, and a man from tho west with a
big sombrero occupied the other. He was
a fine looking, manly fellow, and was taken
by those around him for a lawyer. At the
next station an unattractive drummer got
on the car. He sired up the situation at a
glance. The lady was pretty, and that set
tled it. Without even asking her he sat
down by her, and at once commenced to
make himself agreeable.
She tried to avoid him, and looked out of
the window, but the fellow's gall was im
maculate, and he maintained the one sided
conversation. The western man was calm
ly matching the proceeding, and stood it as
long as he could. Going up to the lady he
said, "Madam. I see that you arc annoyed.
Wouldn't yon prefer to have my seat?"
"Oh, thank yon." she replied, "certainly,"
and the big man helped her to transfer htr
valise, while the other passengers tittered
at the drummer's discomfiture.
The latter was boiling over, but kept
down liis wrath until he got to Aisooaa,

England's ralars ara making ready for a
ceremony at Plymouth to coramemorata
the beginning near that seaport of tea
ever memorable struggle sgniost the Span
ish Armada. Tho Daks of Edinburgh is
to nnveil the memorial column, and ones
more for tho tercentenary was In fact cel
ebrated in 18SS the United Kingdom will
rejoioe in that great deliverance.
As the faction called "Jinsoes" have
lately sought to create alarm about tho
weakness of tho fleet and the danger of in
vasion, the other party feels impelled to
make this ceremony peculiarly brilliant,
Rnd glorify greatly orcr the ruin of the
Spanish Armada. It was, indeed, a great
deliverance Ccesar, the Danes, tho Saxons
and William of Normandy invaded Eng
land successfully; but Miice the kingdom
was thoroughly established all such at
tempts have been defeated, and tho Span
iards of 1588 suffered tho most disastrous
defeat of all.
It is one of tho stock falsehoods in popu
lar histories to say that the Spaniards
wanted to conquer England for rligion's
sake. Philip II had many good reasons for
warring against Elizabeth. She had en
couraged depredations on the Spaniards
by men who would now be treated as
pirates. Philip, therefore, employed all
tho resources of his then vast dominions to
conquer England, and early in 1-8S com
pleted "La Felicissima Armada," though
another word was popularly substituted
for "most fortunuto," and tho fleet wa3
styled "The Invincible Armada."
It was a queer collection. It is not easy
to realize that only SU3 years ago galleons
of 700 to 1250 tons burden were classed as
"enormous war vessels;" that smaller ves
sels were rowed by galley slave, aad actual
ly went iuto action with the hapless wretch
es chained to their benches as described in
Lew Wallace's "Ben-Ilur." Yet the Span
ish record tells us that there were "sixtT
galleons of hugo size and strength" (the
largest 1,230 tons), some Levantine gal
leons carrying soldiers, four ships of tho
class called "galliasses" carrying tho heavy
cannon, and smaller war ships and vessels
carrying stores. And on thij fleet wero
18,000 Boldicrs, 8,000 sailors, 2,000 galley
slaves, 2,000 suns, of caliber from A to 32
pou rulers, and the commandnrs, with quite
n retinue of younc noblemen and ISO priests,
the whole supplied with six months' pro
visions and a very lavish outfit of small
arms and ammunition The Prince of
Parma also had in the Netherlands 30,000
infantry and -1,000 cavalry, picked men,
ready to cross as boon as the Brituh fleet
was put out of the way.
The British hud ample warning, and
were thoroughly aroused to tho need of r.c
tion. The Fca commanders usually spoke
of the Spaniards with nndisguUed con
tempt, but the land soldiers took a very
serious view of things, for Spain was then
admitted to bo tho greatest power in
Europe, and Spanish infantry had done
terrible work wherever engaged in that
generation. So a commission of noblemen
and gentlemen was convened, and ordered
beacons to l set on every commanding
point on the sea coast, ready for lighting,
and continuous signals across tho king
dom, that tbo yeomanry might gather at
instant notice. Tho national spirit was
roused and swelled Ligh. The pooreat la
borer provided himself with n weapon, if
nothing better than a stake hardened in
the flre, and the contemporary dasenptions
tell of men walking the coast with picks,
scythes on poles and long handled axes.
But in tho navy thero were experienced
men and sensible preparations, though
both wero sadly hindered by a corrupt and
inefficient administration, and, as it turned
out, the sailors wero forced suddenly to
fight when but half ready. Sir John Haw
kins was treasurer of tho navy, with gen-
eral control, and f him more than any
other man probably Ercsl-nd owed her
victory. Sir Francis Drake wan high In
command and did much to inspire other
seamen with courage, Irot thre W Ktill an

Lord Howard was taken by surpris,
only a small part of bis fleet ready; to ha
stood oil and maneuvered a day for pea
tion. Sunday, July 21. he opened th
ball with a shot at tho Spanish flagship.
To any seaman of experience the event ws
determinod as soon as tha relative actios,
was seen; the English ships sailed twice as
fast as the Spanish, passed the latter'a
front, delivering a galling flre as thsy
went, then steered around and attacked
the rear. All thin time the Spaniards wctsj
making awkward efforts to close and.
board, as their young chivalry wers ae
customed to fight t close quarters with
the sword, but that was to be as the En
glish chase, and just then they did not
choose it. The Spaniards suffered severe
ly, and got two ships disabled that night
On Monday thero was occasional fighting
all day, with moro loss to the Spaniards.
On Tuesday the wind favored them, and
they attempted to close and board, but the
English marksmen shot the galley slaves
from their benches and defeated that
scheme. Tills was Frobishcr's day of tri
umph. Then the Spaniards turned and
sailed up the channel, and from every port
camo every kind of vessel, even a fisher
man's catboet, to annoy r&KU. Wednesday
both fleets drifted. Thursday there was
another battle and aaotber gain for tbs
Knglish. Friday sinlo Spaniih ships bo-
gan to leave for the French coast, and on
