THE SUNDAY HERALD, DECEMBER27.1891.
THEY WERE WOMEN.

the Crowded Car GotiiR Up Hill.
The cur wns crowded from one end to the
other, ami to the front and rear platforms
men were banging on. Slowly it climbed tbo
hill past tbo Treasury, the borses strainiug
every muscle. Yet, despite tbo fact tbat not
even standing room could bo bad, two womou
stepped out from the sidewalk just as tbo car
was half way up tho bill and called to tbo
driver to stop. Much against his will ho did

tbo terrible 6traln to which his horses would
bo subjected on starting up. The women,
after a glance at the crowd and a moment or
two of consultation, Anally decided thatthoy
could not get aboard, and told the conductor
. .that they would wait for tho next one.
"That's something Idon'tunderstand," said
bo, as bo rung tho bell to go ahead.
'What's that you don't understand ?" asked
the fat mau.
"Why them women," replied tbo conduc
tor, "couldn't seo tbat the car was too
crowded for them to get aboard before they
stopped it right on a hill like this."
"Well, my dear fellow," chuckled the fat
j man, "I'll tell you. It was simply because
they wore womou. If they hadn't been
Women they would have not only seen tbat
they couldn't get on, but they would also
pave seen tbat it was an absolute cruelty to
itop borses on a hill with a load like this to
Bull. If they had thought of it for even a
moment they would perhaps have never
stopped the car; but as Tom Hood said:
More eU is wrought by want of thought
than by want of heart.' "
DOWN ON BICYCLES.
He Wanted to Got Hurt So As to "Write

Detroit Free Press.
"Bicycles arc a nuisance," he said to tho
city editor, coming up to his desk, after the
manner of a man with a grievance.
"So?" Inquired the editor, who rode one
"Yes, they are. I've just been waiting for
a chance to write them up."
"What's the matter with them?"
"Aw, they take up the street, scare horses,
run people down, and do all sorts of unex

"That's just It. I was coming across the
street this morning and 1 saw two coming
lickety-split from opposite directions. 1 was
going to get out of the way at first, but I
thought I had as much right as they had to
the 6treet, so I concluded to stand my ground
and just make one of them run into me. I
knew it was my opportunity to get even and
I wasn't going to lo6e it."
"And you got run Into, and now you want to
blast the bicycle, do you? " Inquired the ed
itor, shoving a paper pad and pencil over to
"No, I don't," was the disgusted reply. "I
dodged around there for ten minutes trylDg to

of me and didn't touch a hair. That's why I
say they are a nuisance."
GLOVE REFORM NEEDED.
Women's Hands Distorted Out of All
Undoubtedly the portion of a lady's apparel
which most needs to be reformed is her glove.
The fingers are just long enough to cripple
the victim by tying her digits together at the
second joint. The hand, from tho wri6t to
the knuckles, is cruelly squeezed and dis
torted out of all shape or semblance to a hu
Attached to the portion of the wretched
affair already described is a great waste of
material long enough to reach half way to tho
elbow and wide enough to encircle tho neck.
This flabby and useless part, mortally offen
sive to the sight, invariably wrinkles down
about the wrist to complete the woful de
monstration of the enslavement of humanity
to tyrannical and 6en6elesB fashion.

WORLD'S GREATEST PAS
SENGJ R TRAIN.
How Foreigners View tho Pennsylvania
One of the greatest revelations to foreigners
when journeying through this country Is the
luxurious method of traveling enjoyed by
Americans. They are 6taggard with the "Penn
sylvania Limited" and tho conveniences
afforded by this greatest passenger train of
A uniformed maid Is always on this train
ready to do service to ladles and children, and
the observation car Is the sanctum for loung
ing and comfort. Men revel In the cosiest of
smoking and library cars, with dailv and peri
odical literature before them, and bulletined
as wired to the train the stock and business
movements of tho hour, while a stenographer
and typewriter, whose services are entirely
free, is at a desk close by to receive, transcribe,
and dispatch letters and telegrams at their
bidding. These letters may be mailed in a
United States mail box on the train provided
for the use of passengers. The bath and bar
ber apartments are tho greatest of conveni
ences. It is no wonder this luxurious mode
of traveling has made tho "Pennsylvania Lim
ited" famous aud Is such a revelation to our
English cousins. This train leaves New York,
foot of Cortlandt and Desbrosses streets,
dally at 10:00 a. in., Philadelphia 12:30 noon,
for Chicago, Cincinnati, and the West.
They Dissipate on Charlotte Kubsc.
New ltork Recorder.
New York girls who patronize tho lunch
counters call for live times more Charlotte
russe than pie. Even cocoanut-ple has lost
caste, and this generation of rosebuds prefer
a paper full of whipped cream and sponge
cake to anything on the pantry shelf.
There Is talk about a Harrison souvenir
spoon for the Washington trade, with Baby
McKee's sweet little dimpled leg for the
handle and a high hat perched on his foot.
