"BAB" AT NARRAGANSBTT.
The Narrncnnsott Girl and ECor "Best

Twonty-four Atlilotlc to tho Core of
From our Regular Correspondent.
NAitRAtjANSETT Pxeh. Sept. 0. "Water, water
ovorywhere, and not a drop to drink," is tho cry
of tho younpr woman who Is In tho swim hero.
Before sho goes in sho has a champasrno cocktail
to buoy her up, and just after sho comes out hor
best boy (that's what sho calls him 'nowadays)
has a milk punch strong with brandy and
daintily covered with nutmeR to fetch her up.
Tho Narrat? ansctt girl Booms to bo in continual
need of a stimulant, which, whon you remember
that sho gets about two hours' sleep out of tho
uvuiiij-iimr, is not surprising, aue is athletio
to tho coro of her heart; that is, if sho has a
heart, and not an enlarged musolo in its place.
Sho adores tho young man who can swim out
until everybody thinks he's drowned, and all tho
nervous women are crying, as sho does tho one
who is heard slngiDg a lively chorus about 7
o'clock in tho morainar, when ho presents a most
Sho is very Intimate with one woman, and no
more; and tho two surround thomsolVos with a
sot of men that they beautifully call "our
gang." Slang at Narragansott is as tough as
that on tho Bowery, and tho young woman who
can speak it with greatest easo and Huoncy la
esteemed as being of high intelligence and
culture. There is only ono thing that particu
larly charms mo about tho girls horo, and that
is thoy aro healthy. I think it must bo tho air
and ttio sea, and not tho bad manners and fast
ness that provokes this. Trouvlllo is continu
ally suggested by this place, and yet, whilo tho
French woman is up to all sorts of naughtiness,
sho doesn't vulgarize horsolf as do tho girls horo.
MEN WHO PREFER LOVE TO MARIUAOE.
A young raatrou who is very gay was asked
not very long ago whero hor littlo daughter was,
and sho qulokly answered: "Well, certainly not
hero; I keep her in thn convent all summer. You
d0R.I' suppose I want her to grow up llko ono of
us?" Sho had certainly spoken her own judg
ment, and ono couldn't but wonder If tho
mother's caro of tho ohlld-her protecting it
evidences ot a better nature than showed on tho
surface. Tho young matron is undeniably tho
bollo. So few men caro to marry that thoy ilnd
it more comfortablo to make lovo to hor than
thoy do to say sweot nothings to a youug girl,
whoso parents muy ask him what his intentions
Tho fashionable man of to-day has nointen

young matron Js his boon companion. At a sup

champagne, and then walked home aloue, un

which were engraved, "Would I wore with theo."
Now this was pretty larky, but wo know that tl o
end of tho century is reached when 'tis realized
that this i woman's husband was presont, and
thought it a great Jokol Agreut joke, indeed,
to take thosweetuessandlovollnessof a woman's
character, and niako her lower than tho deml
mondaine, at whom sho casts a look of disdain,
and who in reality is her equal, if not hor su

Tho itfclitsste, tho woman that nobody knows

FASHIONS FOR MEN.
Washington men aro said to havo tho happy
knack of catching fashions on tho fly, adapting
them to themselves and modifying them to suit
our climatic conditions and individual tastes.
Thoy do thfs with a success which impresses tho
outsider with tho Idea that Washington has a
littlo head fashion bureau of her own. Tho fall
fashions for men this year aro not strikingly
odd, and may not therefore bo as closely fol
lowed as thoy wero when bludgeon-proportioned
sticks, twenty-four-inch trousers, and such other
monstrosities wero in vogue. Moderation marks
tho temperament of tho closing decado of the
nineteenth century. Tho women have given up
their bustles and big hats, and now tho young
men aro called on to place upon tho samo fune
ral pyre tho sticks which they havo carried with
so much laborious grace for sovoral seasons.
Sticks this year aro not large, they are unvar
nished, and their ornaments aro not are not at

and within thoso bounds tho tasto of tho con
noisseur of stickwear may havo full sway with
out running against the, to him, inviolablo laws
of fashion. What promises to bo tho favorite is
a stick of dark wood, with nothinc mn t.hnn
a suggestion as to a head. Ono or two littlo
patches of oxidized silver carelessly affixed near
Its upper extremity, with perhaps a coll ring of
tho samo motal circling around it, is all tho or
namentation which will bo tolerated by fashion
"No real gontleman will wear a mado-up
cravat," was what I heard a fashionable young
man say tho other day. Whether or not respect
ability depends to that extent upon such arbi
trary dictates of fashion It Is not my province to
determine. It is a fact, nevertheless, that it Is
a serious Impediment of casto to bo guilty of

as thoy once wero. With an Ascot of pretty do

twisted gold. In four-ln-hauds solid shades will
bo worn to somo extent. Plaids aud stripes
havo gono out of neckwear for tho tlmo bolug,
and small, angular ilgures have taken their
place. Angles, however, aro ontlroly Inappro
Pato to tho general character of tho Ascot.
With Its large, Huffy expanso nothing Is moro in
harmony thau a pretty littlo flowered or vlno
liko figure. At any rate, ouo can feel safo in
-wearing such this season. Ascotscau bo bought
at any prico from one dollar to five. Any color
short of something startling will do, although
light is preferred. Striking colors aud striking
things generally havo been rologated to thoso to
whom thoy belong tho sport and tho Sunday-
In these days of cheap jewelry to bo fashion
able iu that respect demands moro of a drain
upon a porson's tasto than perhaps it does to bo
fashionable In auy other regard. Oxidized sil

buttons can bo bought at all prices aud of all

beauty, tasto must bo used in making the choice.
If thowould-bo well-dressed man can't trust
