Supplement to the Hawaiian Gazette, Dec. 13 1882.
Bottlit f" Girls.
It has become the fashion for women to im
itate tnea in all respects, even to the weiring
cf their hats and ulsters. It i. oot strange
that the root', reasonable of all the.e imitation!
should come now in the .hapo of bolting
The act of rowing it in fact, one of the most
cplendid of all gymnastic exerciaes in it effect
upon the female figure. Green a light pair of
J -. . r n v...:n v . amnAtT nii
of water, and a man on the ihore who can f
awim, and there can be no better exercise lor
the growieg girls of a family than the rewign
and down for an henr in the morning.
There it almost no danger in it, if the exercise
does not fitigne or came a sndden shortness
of breath. If this comes, ot course the prac
tice mnst be discontinued, for it is erident that
the heart doe not lite it. Bst if the children
retarn exhiliarated and rosy, it maj be p re
turned that the rowing is admirable exercise
for them. It certainly straightens the back,
develops the arms and host, and gives even
those who are threatened with long difficulty
a new lease of life.
Bat as a young lady's beauty is a thing to
be considered, the proper attention to the hands
and the complexion demands that they should
bosh be covered. The head should be pro
tected by a large hat, not a flapping one, but
one that shades the face, and the band by deg
sldn gloves which will not embarrass the free
play of the muscles.
Then, sa the boating children grow elder,
they can well become the fit candidates for a
boat crew vhidi shall, in its way, emulate in
zeal the great dubs of Harvard, Columbia,
Yale, and Princeton. For there are many
young women of clear head, slender figure,
good lungs, steady heart beat, and strong mus
cles who can be trusted to pull an oar with the
best young oarsman of the day.
Feeling thst this amusement as well as
horseback exercise may be utilized to the
health and the benefit of the sex, ne are glad
to see that at some female colleges and at
cany summer watering places the young la
dies are organizing themselves into boating
dnbe, and under professional trainers are
learning to row in groups like the well trained
crews of the various colleges.
Sow this adventure must require some he
roic self-sacrifice. The fair crew must enter
into the plau as a business, give up tho tempt
ation to go away to Newport or Saratoga, re
sign all the engagements which might inter
fere with their training, and regard it as a
conscientious promise. On a certain inland
lake one such crew has been in training for a
year, and the results are admirable. They
have had a " shell " built by one of the best
builders ; they have oars which are a trifle
lighter than those of their masculine compet
itors; ther have secured the services of a pro
fessional trainer; and so far no illness, or
weakness, or neglect of duty has been report
ed. They have all grown better looking, finer
in figure, more robust in health. The brown
of the complexion has been a little trying to
one young lady, but her friends do not find it
It is like a strain of music to tee this fair
.rew as they moe off with the neatest precis
ion. TLeir little coxswain, a fairy-like girl,
with the voice of a cornet-a-piston, rules them
ith a rod of iron, and they obey her with soldier-like
promptness, as they do the noble
captain. Their dress is neatness itself; a flan
nel blouse of navy bine belted in isoseirj a
pair of woollen pantaloons or drawers with a
foot to them (like the tights worn on the stage.)
India rubber soled lawn tennis shoes, and a
sailor hat fastened on with an India rubber
strap, dog skin gloves of bright yellow reach
ing to the elbow snch is the lady crew of this
They have some competitors who disdain
the hat and the gloves. But we do not ap
prove of their disdain. A woman should keep
her hands white and soft, and her faco from
being sunburned and freckled, by reasonable
It is a curious fact, too, that the young oars
women who wear gloves have distanced their
competitors wto have none. These young wo
men commenced cautiously "Festina lento"
is their motto. They did not starve them
selves, but ate oatmeal and cream and a beef
steak, took butahoit court.es at first, and had
a due regard to headaches, (for women suffer
from headache much more than men,) and
these prudent sailors put a cabbage leaf in
their bats on -ery hot days. They began their
practice in early morning and late evening,
and learned to bear the heat of the snn very
As all things slot ly done meet with ripest
and quickest and surest success, their prepar
atory exercises have brongLt them into a
thorough physical training, which makes them
a most reliable crew. Of course the banc of
all the amusements and all the work ot the
world has entered in to their boat and threat
ens to swamp it.
They are now fullof emulation. They want
:o beat somebody else. They have as yet no
':val near the throne of their own sex, so they
are dying to row with Haivard or Yale. Of
. jorse they have beaten the local hatless and
.loveless crew tiroes out of mind. Bat if they
ame in competition with the crew of Harvard
-t Yale, no doubt tho fair Xereids would be
whipped, for women's muscular system is
usually inferior in hardness and durability and
staying power to that of man, and she cannot
do what be can. But she can do what women
can do, and that is a very good thing. She
may not have the superhuman power of a Grace
Darling or a Joan of Arc They were phe
nominal women ; but if by her boating she
gives herself not uuly a delightful amusement,
but a freer development and a more serene
nind. if she make herself mistress of that dan
gerous element, the wate, she is three times the
person that she would be if she could not take
an oar, and row herself over from one honse
to another on the shores of Bar Harbor, or
Vewport, or Xarragansett; or on the lovely in
land lakes cf Xew York or on the Hudson
Eiver, and above all, and first of all, she
should learn to swim.
A woman can, if she is put in the water early
enough, learn to swim perfectly. She can be
come a " perfect duck " in other than the con
ventual formula. There is no 6uch freedom
and stirh independence as this.
On a certain recent wreck nearXew York
one of those steamboat explosions wmcn made
every one tremble a very strong. Dig man
swim. Sue nciu up ma ucau, unojmdgcumui j
to throw out his arms in fact, taught him to
swim, during those horrible hours when death
waited for them. If everything else failed,
she held his hands down behind him, and he j
found himself floating, ucconsciouiiy made .
aware that unless he used Ins arms wisely ne
had better not hive any.
Everr woman now at the summer watering
places, particularly where there is sea-bathing,
can learn to swim; and she can learn to
row on Saratoga Lake, or on any lake or river
near her, if she wishes. The great number of
visitors at Bar Harbor have brought boating
into much reputation.
A woman often after she gets fearless goes
cut alone in a wherry, and to " paddle one s
own cane " has become a fixed fact. We have
no doubt that ladies living near the Hudson
will soca own their own boats, as they now
own their own horses, and they will, we hope,
make a new departure in the way of good
arms, for it is a notorious fact that the Amer
ican female arm is very bad. It is leas, and
skinny, and undeveloped. It shows that wo
men have left something undone which they
might have done to develop this most lovely
Look at the arms of the Venus of Milo
what is left of them that lovely development
at the shoulder. Hetternich said that Grisi
had the arms which the Yenus of Milo had
lost; but what American woman, except our
young boating crew, has Griti's arms?
To undertake the business of forming a
boating crew requires some money, and the
young clubs of nhich we have heard formed
themselves on the model of the Harvard crew,
raising a fund first. They then sent for a
trainer, who, it is to be confessed, laughed on
one side of his mouth. After a year's prac
tice, he now laughs on the other side, and
brags very loudly of his lady crew, who for
punctuality, devotion to duty, and disregard
of hardships, he says, "beat all the beys."
A boat-house, convenient sheds or houses for
bathing and dressing, an omnibus or lath car
riage to take the oarswomen home, a shell and
oars these are the belongings of the success
ful crew which we have seen. Divided
amongst opulent young ladies, the expense his
not been very heavy, and if started at a col
lege, and encouraged as such clubs are at
colleges, it wonld not appall even those of
Meantime, as clubs can not always be im
mediately formed, let each young lady use her
opportunity when near the water to learn to
row of the fisherman or the light draught man
who takes her out cn a little aquatic expedi
tion. She can at least learn the names of the
different parts of the boat, not confound the ;
tiller with the stern, or the bow with the oar,
or the anchor with the mainmast, or the "main
top jib with the jib maintop," after the fashion
of most landswomen, or landsmen, for that
