LAST AUGUST SUNDAY
DRAWS USUAL SWARM
OF VISITORS TO SHORE
Crowd Thought Larger Than
Corresponding Day Last Year,
Although Quarantine Keeps
Many Children Away
FINE WEATHER ENJOYED
ATLANTIC C1TV, Aug. 28. Tho last
Sunday In August kept up this city's rec
ord for forging ahead this year as the
crowds hero yesterday were undoubtedly
greater than tho corresponding day last
year. There was a slight fulling off In tho
number of one-day excursionists, tho health
restrictions keeping Juveniles nt home, but
the spending capacity of ndults being thnt
much greater, nil lines of business, with tho
posslbto exception of certain amusements
appealing strongly to children, fared ex
ceedingly well on a day that was Ideal for
seashore enjoyment. With strong breezes
direct from the ocean tempering tho rays
of the sun, promenading was a delight and
bathing wns enjoyed by overy oho. A few
clouds In the nfternoon gavo promtso of
a storm, but these soon blow over nnd noth
ing marred the enjoyment of countless
thousands who wero taking their last fling
at this city's pleasures for tho year.
Tho amusement question seems to havo
been satisfactorily settled, 2 o'clock now
being tho official time for opening on Sun
days. Screens In front of the nmusoment
places Instead of keeping peoplo out acted
as a lure In many Instances and they did
a larger business than If they had been en
tirely open to tho view ot the pnssers-by.
Tho suppression of tho bare-legged fem
inine bnthcr was rigidly enforced ytsterday
nnd tho same rule will be applied during
the rest of this senson. On Saturday many
of tho regular bathers whoJiad been taking
their dally dip with the nether extremities
devoid of covering wero notified that such
costumes would not bo permissible, and
when thoy camo for their morning bath
they had obeyed tho order Sheer llslo
stockings, so gauzy In texture that It took
an expert to decido whether the limbs wero
covered or bare were worn by many of
these dally bathers, but In every enso the
fair devotees of aquatic sports raised their
voices against tho men who had mnde them
ndd something to their costume which they
asserted would Interfere with the pleasures
of a bath. A few who had not been noti
fied on Saturday camo to tho beach with
short socks reaching half way to the kneo
and others with naught but high laced
shoes on the lower limbs. Policemen quick
ly detected this Infraction of the new law
and ordered them oft the beach.
Bathers, who had been violating the city
ordlnanco by promenading the Boardwalk
while attired In ocean costumes, were
brusquely ordered to tho beach by officers
and Informed that they would be arrested
for the second offense. So many complaints
have been mnde about costumes ruined by
contact with wet bathing suits that this
order was popular with the majority ot
Equal franchise received n b'g boom yes
terday when tho first gun of a vigorous
campaign for congressional recognition was
fired at a meeting on tho Steel l'ler.
MAD AT WHAT?
Dear Children I wont to draw a word picture for you and ask you a few
questions. Out in the garden is a little boy with a wagon. Close your eyes and see if
you can picture the little boy and his wagon.
Having the picture thus far, I want to tell you that' the little boy is very
angry at the wagon. Perhaps I should say tho little boy is ANGRY and not
say he is very angry at the wagon.
Let us see,
The two front, wheels of the wagon are so twisted that' they will not
straighten out. It appears to me that the little boy is mad at the wagon be
cause it will not run will not straighten out. Is the wagon mad?
It is not.
Poor wagon! It is a dumb thing and does not care whether it goes or
stands still. It is a dear, patient, kind sort of wagon, doing the little tasks put
upon it, but it cannot THINK.
The little boy CAN think.
I ask you this: Do you suppose the MAD, the angry feeling was in the
little boy waiting to come out? Do you suppose the wagon getting all twisted
was an excuse? Do you suppose the little boy would have been angry at a wheel
barrow, a cat, a dog, a rubber ball or his mother, if they had done something
he did not like at that particular time?
Let us go back to our picture. The little boy has a wagon and he is mad
Who caresj The little boy, The wagon may be laughing at him. I never
heard of a wagon laughing, but strange things happen.
Now, I ask you, what do you get mad at?

ITN THE beglnn.ng, almost with the echo of
JL tho first blow, there had come the sound
of many feet splashing hurriedly over the
sodden ground within the Inctosure, together
with shouts and demands for Information.
A. voice wnrnid us to desiit, nnd I remem
ber thinking that Greer's watchmen were
acting out tho roles ho had written them,
with rare nrtfutness.
Hard upon these camo nn Interruption
I caught a stern nnd terso command of
"'Ere. now! Wot's up?" followed by a
command to "Clear out, every man Jack of
There was authority In thoso tones. I
turned, and saw n constable pelting across
tho street toward us, hetmct shining,
truncheon brandished over his head.
Ho enmo on with a rush, and fell without
mercy upon the outor fringe of our men ;
I saw the truncheon strlko out onco or
twice, nnd heard the sounds of Its Impact,
followed by hearty nnd fervent cursei from
the recipients. And then, abruptly, thero
wns a little gust of laughter shaking the
group A list, big nnd heavy, had shot
out nbovo the shoulders of the crowd and
caught the bobby sqUarcly on the chin.
He went down llkean log, knocked uncon

Sevrnnco swung about with a cry of
Impatience, nnd Just In tlmo to sco tho
"Hush that laughing!" ho ordered tensely,
adding. "Ong thnt man, tie his hands, nnd
bring him along with us."
A voice responded heartily "Aye, aye,
sir!" And I could sco thnt his directions
wero being carried out
But I stared nt Sevrnnco In whole-souled
admiration. Here wns a transformation
for your consideration: n stendy-golng,
rnsy-llving, nblo British bnrrlster, tho
possessor of an assured Incomo nnd Bworn
to uphold tho laws of his land, abruptly
transfigured Into n lawbrenkcr as bold, ns
resourceful nnd as unscrupulous as any of
our nssoclnte rapscallions.
Ho was admirably In earnest at that,
and quite nbsorbed In the execution, the
successful consummation of bis project. 1
saw him throw n hasty glance to the farther
Bide of the street, nnd, following his ox
nmplo, was nwaro that tho patrons nf tho

nnd without favor,
"Keep together, men!" he cried, raising
his voice. "Kick thoso fellows out of the

some of you put a shoulder to these gates !"
In response a dozen sprnng forward and
hurled themselves against the stout oaken
barrier. There was n crash, n chorus ot
shouts from within, and tho mob of us
surged through tho opening, Sevranco and
Truly, Greer's hopo that tho affair would
seem tho work of a rowdy band of thieves
wns being realized to tho last degree. I
caught myself thinking that never a more
disorderly rabble had nssembled In the
streets of Barmouth than this which I was
heading with Sevrance, my friend !
Tho next Instant, however, that happened
which gave a now color to my thoughts. I
heard a snapping report ahead of us, saw
a flash of flame, athw'art the darkness, nnd
felt tho cold brenth of a bullet that winged,
hissing, past my cheek.
"Good Lord!" I gasped, aghast. In

I got no reply and deserved nono ; for
tho truth of that observation wns mo
mentarily becoming self-evident We en
countered In tho course ot the next few
moments a sturdy nnd unyielding resistance
from tho yard watchmen.
To this day I believe that Greer's heart
had failed him at tho last moment ; thnthe
had concluded to let tho nffalr take Its
courso without further aid from him. Cer
tainly, his Instructions for submission, If
actually Issued to the watchmen, went
totally disregarded, The men stood their
ground nobly, according to their conception
of their duty, nnd gave us battle without
tho least hesitation.
But tho fellows behind us were not of
tho sort to bo deterred by such nn obstacle,
nnd, moreover, they outnumbered the
watchmen six to one. Thoy rushed upon
them, growling with rnge, evidently without
n thought of retreating before that show of
Fortunately, for the tlmo- being, they
themselves were without arms ; else, I fear,
more than one of thoso worthy nnd loyal
watchmen had been shot down that night
As It was, they put up a resistance stiff
enough to cause a considerable delay, and
were only overcome by force of numbers
and nt the cost of three of our men, who
were slightly wounded In the welcoming

Things to Know and Do
Conundrum What is the oldest tree la
ing Into the yard In momentarily Increas
ing numbers. By good chanco tho firing
served to dismay them somewhat! they
shrank from exposing themselves to a
danger which did not, In the first place,
concern them, nnd for n tlmo loitered nbout
the broken gale, either undecided 'as to
what had best be done, or else waiting for
n re-enforcement of the constabulary.
That camo In time, too, and at n moment
too early to be entirely ngrccablo to us of
tho nttncklng nnd Invading party. We had
no more than disposed of tho wntchmen
before I recognized the pollco whistles In
As tho one who knew the lay of the land,
my capacity was that of guide. I led by
dead reckoning, most of tho tlmo entirely
at n loss as to our whereabouts, but blun
dering on somehow In an approximately
nccurato course for tho river's edge. In
this I may have been aided, In a slight de
gree, by a fairly good and Instinctive bump
of location. At nny rate, I made a pretty
fair cast for the spot whenco Greer and I
had surveyed the Ctymcne found, without
a delay positively damning, the ship In
whose lco we had Rtood the previous morn

other crnft by reason of her peculiar build,
were vaguely discernible, nnd wo wero

But. ns to the boats?
Too late t realized that i had forgotten
to make Greer point out the exnet spot
whence we wero to embark. I'll confess
that I began to entertain n pretty poor
opinion of my own executive abilities, nnd.
Indeed, I had not the spirit nor the fnce
lo resent Sovrnnce's scathing criticism when
I hastily explained to him the truo stato
of affairs. It seemed for tho moment as
though wo had cast tho fnt Into tho flro
without taking ordinary common-senso pre
cautions ngalnst burning our fingers: we
had come thus fnr only to bo balked by
Fortunately, t remembered that Greer had
vaguely Indicated the position of tho boats
as "somo distance upstream." I quoted this
to Sevrance. Callahan, who had Joined our
hasy council of war, overheard, and slipped
off Into tho darkness.
From tho outer, landwnrd Bcctlon of the
shipyard now camo a terrific clamor. Wo
gathered from tho din that a considerable
force ot constabulary had nrrlved upon the
scene, nnd thnt an Intelligently orgnnlzcd
hue nnd cry was being raised.
Our men clustered about us, grumbling.
I found tlmo to nolo that somo few had
been drinking rnther heavily! but I was
somewhat reassured by tho fact that tho
majority seemed clear of head, Bober and
ready: their morale was lllto to steady tho
Sevranco turned to them, briefly outlin
ing tho situation. I was grateful to hlln
for sparing me ; he said thnt wo had missed
tho boats, through no fault of nny one
concerned. Slight patience would bo re
quired, thon nil would doubtless bo well.
In the meantime ho gavo directions for the
sequestering temporarily of tho unconsctout
constable In a nearby tolshed. "And If
nny others' came to bother us," he ordered,
"glvo them a doso of tho same, boys."
At tho moment of his peroration Cal
lahan reappeared. "'TIs mesclf." ho an
nounced, "that has found 'em, aor. If yo'll
bo good enough t" sthep this way,
We wero good enough to follow him, you
may bo sure. Wo slipped out of tho Il
lumination furnished by the nearby electric
arc, and shambled on through mud nnkle
deep, In total darkness a compact body of
men, and silent I lost reckoning there,
even ns I lost touch with Sevrance. Our
crowd wns closo about me, nnd I surren
dered myself to their guidance, content to
follow tho general direction. After sev
eral minutes, enlivened by a momentarily
Increasing racket of pursuit, wo camo to
tho water's edge. There wo enmo upon
a number of email boats, some apparently
seaworthy, many worthless, according to tho
statements of thoso around us.
Without more ado, however, and as cir
cumspectly as possible, we got Into them
six to ten to a boat. Callahan's votco was
to be heard, Indicating an adjacent boat
house ns the spot whero oars were ob
tainable. Several dozen woro npparently
brought out and thrown upon tho ground
for selection, with n clatter that brought
the pursuers down upon us In short order.
Finally, however, something like order was
resolved out of that chaos. I heard Sov
ranco calling to me, evidently from a boat
nt some distance upstream, and I answered,
reassuring him ns to my safety,
A mob of men charged across a lighted
space some dlstanco Inland, with a chorus
of yells, apprising us that wo were dis
covered, Callahan, In tho boat next mine,
raised a shout to push off. There were
some seconds of furious splnshlngs, varied
with profanity and the bumping and scrap
ing of boats; the darkness held about us
Intense and unrelieved.
Abruptly I was aware that the boat In
whose stern I sat was afloat. I fancy It
was the last to get off.
Hardly had the men found tho oars and
tho blades caught tho water, ere the fore

3IISTEH JAY BIRD'S SNEEZE
By Farmer Smith
Mister Elephant looked up. and
above him he Baw Mister Jay Bird.
"What am I to look out for?" asked
Mister Elephant "You troublemaker!"
"I am going to sneeze." replied Mister
Jay Bird. "It Is bad luck to get In the way
when a Jay Bird sneezes. Do you hear?"
How kind you are ! Ahem ! Ahem ! Walt
until 1 get away before you sneeze Pray,
shall I go a mile or two miles? How far
does a Jay Bird's sneeze go."
Get behind a tree and will count one,
two. three! .Then I will sneeze, see?"
Mister Elephant flopped his ears and
wiggled h's tall. Then' he squinted up at
Mister Jay Bird. "Are you ready?" he
"Heady for what?" asked the bird,
"Iteady for me to get behind the tree,
ready to sneeze. Do you have to catch
cold before you sneeze?"
"Well, well!"' replied Mister Jay Bird.
"Vou know everything you should "
"Who said I knew everything?" began
the big fellow "I don't know everything,
and I know that I don't know everything.
You think you know everything and- "
"One. two," went Mister Jay Bird.
"Cheer-choo !" went Mister Elephant,
and he blew Mister Jay Bird so high In the
sky It was half an hour later when he
sailed back to earth
"What did you sneeze for when I counted
one, two?" aaked Mr, Jay Bird, trying to
smooth down his feathers. "I was the one
who was to sneeze."
"You don't tell me I" exclaimed Mr. Ele
phant "It was funny, wasn't It? Js'ext
time let me count."
"You had better sneeze with somebody
your own SIZE," replied Mr. Jay Bird, as
he flew away.

us. Thero wns scuffling about the riows; It
was too dark for me to' ascerlalrt precisely
what was going on, but t surmised that
some more audacious ones had seized the
oars and the s.de of the boat.
It swayed and rocked perilously, to my
mind, who sat, expecting every moment to
find myself floundering In the shallows. The
fighting seemed to Increase rather than to
lessen ; It began to appear as though we
alone wero to suffer detention perhaps a
permanent one. I could see tho other boats
slipping by, b'ack blurs ngalnst the more
dense blnckness of tho river's surface, their
occupants encouraging us with shouts nnd
advice mostly unintelligible.
From ashoro thero came n pistol shot Its
flash seemed to cnl.ghton the Wholo situa
tion. I drew my own weapon, stood up
between the thwarts, nnd opened fire aim
lessly, trusting to the moral effect
It proved n success most complete and
grntlfylng. Without pause, 1 pulled the trig
ger until tho six chambers of tho cylinder
wero empty. Some one shrieked, "My God
I'm murdered I" and there was n furious
splashing us his fellows sprang back, fight
ing with one ancther to be the first to escapo
from harm's way. In nn Instant our oars
Somebody stuck nn oar Into tho mud of
the river's bed nnd shoved oft quickly.
Others poised their oars, nwaltlng n gen
eral signal to give wny. The boat Bwung
oft Into decpar waters ns we scrambled for
our seats. Presently It censed rocking! wo
were nil In place. I took upon myself tho
duties of coxswain little as I knew them,
nnd raising my volco In nn Interval of
quiet, shouted: "Glvo way!"
Thero was rrnro contusion before the men
finally got tho stroko ! then they pulled with
n vengennce. Wo shot out Into tho murky
obscurity of the river's fnrthcr reaches; I
groped for tho tiller ropes, found them, nnd,
nfter two or threo miserable blunders, got
somo of tho hung of the business nnd man
aged to steer a tolernbly straight courso In
tho wnko of th other boats.
Gradually tho din and clamor ashore
stilled. I gathered that the constables were
manning a bott to set oft after us, but bo
fore they had actually settled down to the
work of rowing, I fnncy, wo were floating
at tho gangway of tho Clymenc the last of
our boats, even ns I myself was tho last
man to board the yacht.
As I did o. tho fellow who had been
holding tho boat In position with n hook,
let It slide, It slipped oft Into the darkness
nnd he sprnng on up the lndder, I followed
moro lelsurclv, though Intensely excited.
Sovrnnco greeted me with n silent, reas
suring handclasp nt the top of tho gang
way, and Immediately that I had set foot
on deck, n number of men sprnng to unship
the ladder. I stood aside Sevrance having
gono about his duties and watched them
working nwny In complete darkness, but
with Intelligence and spirit
it seemed remarkable to nie tho genius
for organization whtch my friend had dis
played In putting through this affair. Every
man seemed to kliow his plnco nnd business.
In later talks with Sevranco I hnvo learned
of the Infinite enro with which he chose his
crew, and how painstakingly tho details
wero plotted cut, to cacli man being ns
slgned his place nnd duties which ho wns

quite marvelous to me to stand there. Idle
as I had to bo for tho time, and watch

Evangelist at Ocean Grove Sas
He's Tired and Will Aban
don Meetings Unless
DILATORY DEACONS HIT
ASBtmY PARK. U. I., Aug. It. Camp
moetlng attendance records al the Ocean
Grove Auditorium- that Had stood for 20
years nnd more wera smashed yesterday
during the three meetings addressed by
"Billy" Sunday. Moro than thirty thousand
persons heard the evangelist at tho motiv
ing, afternoon and evening services. The
religious enthusiasm was the greatest ever
manifested during a camp-meeting in Ocean
Innovations wero Introoucea by Mr. Sun
day that In nny other person would havo
been regarded by the Methodists s hjghly
undignified, but no protesting volco was
heard, Tho atmosphere was close In the
big structure, and Sunday In the heat ot
his nrguments ngalnst tho devil tfirew bit
his coat ad talked In his shirt sleeves, soak
ing wet with perslratlon. Staid old m ulsters
gasped at the spectnele and a rlppla of sup
pressed surprise spread through tho struc
ture The popular belief that It Is un
dignified and wrong to applaud nt a re
ligious meeting on the Sabbath also wan
dispelled, for tho nudlenco frequently
broke out In enthusiastic handclapping.
Today tho evangelist explained why ha
had voiced, no opopsltlon to tho practice
of many In his audience on Saturday of
shouting "amen" and "hallelujah" during
tho sermon. "If you are an 'amen' Chris
tian," ho said, "shout It out, but don't
shout It any louder than you live It : and If
you talk about your neighbors keep your
CIS HIT TRAIL.
Trall-hlttcro wero called for at nil three
of the meetings nnd a total of 615 per
sons responded, .105 nt the morning meet
ing, 42 nt tho nfternoon servlco and 135 at
night Whon the call first camo nt tho
morning meeting thoso who wished to pro
fess conversion wero stow to respond. Then
Felix Letts, of Brooklyn, n gray-halrcd
man, advanced to tho platform and others
quickly followed, At the evening service
Sundny caused general surprise by leaping
to the top of the pulpit at tho front Of tho
platform nnd delivering his nppeal while
standing astrldo tho Bible.
Sunday's sermon last night was based on
tho Ten Commandments. "Tho man or
woman who does not llvo with tho Ten
Commandments ought to bo In tho peni
tentiary," was his Introductory remark.
"Homo of you mnko money your god,"" ho
said, "and pray to a $100 bill beforo going
to bed. You are making money In bucket
fuls, but going to hell In carlots. God
pity tho man who has nothing but money."
Ho emphasized tho commandment upon
honoring parents and delivered this shot
at the young women who look down upon
their mothers, "Tako It from me, sissy,
sho was once ns good-looking ns yob n-e,"
Ho drew an eloquent picture of tho sac
rifices parents make for children, anil tiler o
wero many tear-dlmmed eyes In the -audience.
On tho subject ot stealing h- waxed
sarcastic. "So many steal 'thousands now
adays," ho asserted, "and gof off vlth light
sentences, when others stonl hundreds and
nre sent to tho pcnltentlnry, that many be
lieve the commandment should he changed
to read. Thou shalt not steal on a small
Covetousness wns nlno richly scored with
Invectives. "Don't covet your neighbor's
limousine" was the modern )vny In which
ho put the commandment "If ho has a
Packard and you a tin Lizzie, forget It"
Tho peculiar custom of Ocean Grovo
audiences ot getting up nnd leaving tho
building while services nro being-conducted
ovldently annoyed Mr. Sunday. Ho declared
with some heat thnt he would not stand
for the practice. "I nm too tired," ho de
clared, "and I'll pack my trunk and go
homo If It continues."
