MRS. HOWARD'S CHALLENGE TO
ENGLAND'S LADY CHAMPION.
Misses Bennett, Lord and Sutton
and Other Daring American
Women Who Sail Boats:
An American woman did a -very plucky
thing last Christmas. She challenged
one of the most skillful of English jjuMs
women Miss Constance E. Dennett, of
London to sail her a match race this sum
mer lu small boats of -the class that in Eng
land they call lialf-raters. The American.
woman is Mrs. Howard, wife of William
WJIIard Howard, an American Journalist
and canoeist, at one time president of t";3.
Xew York CnnoeClab, who look n canoe to
England, last year, which he patriotically
named the Yankee, and invited English
canoeists, one and all, to try conclusions
against blm.and his lwat.
MRS. HOWAItD'S PLUCK.
His wife lias had the same spirit. Her
challenge sprang from a defeat. At the
meet of the British Canoe club last sum
mer at Snlconibc, in the ladies' race she
was beaten by Miss Bennett. She came
in second nnd considering the fact tha
she sailed over an untried course in an
untried boat, loaned her by a friend and
admittedly inferior in point of speed to
that which Miss Bennett sailed J. Arthur
Brand's, crack hair rater Spruce III the
performance was a highly creditable one.
Extremes will, In the Land of Shade
With "Sap and Trilby meet.
For Xnppy Rot tliere with his head,
And, Trilby with her feet.
But It didn't satisfy Mrs. Howard's am
bition. Hence her challenge. This time it was
Intended to be a case of Yankee woman
In a Yankee boat ugainst a British womwi
in a British boat. Thus it would have pos
sessed all the elements ot an international
contest- And her boat was to be one of the
outand-out Yankee type a true center-
board skimming dish and not one ot the
bjlb fin-keel monstrosities. But, alas .wo
man proposes and man dispises. In this
case the man was L. E. Fry, of Clayton,
X. Y., who had been commissioned to build
the boat. Last April Mr. Fry fell sick,
and as thcre'were several special features
to be Introduced into her, the arrangement
ot which he alone could attend to, the boat
couldn't be got ready in time and thematch
won't be sailed this year at least.
STIMULATING AMERICAN YACHTB-
But Mrs. Howard has established a prec
edent that ought to be kept op. If she
doesn't sail the race next year some
other American woman should step In
and till the brnth. It would be an excel
lent thing (o establish some sort ot an in
ternational trophy to be sailed tor by
women. It would exercise a great stim
ulus on this side of the Atlantic at least
In Inducing women to go in for yacht
sailing. There Is no American woman
that I haveevcr heard of who owns and
sails a racing yacht, meeting men on
equal terms and bcatlng-thcm frequently.
There are several women who do It
lu England, taking the weather as It
comes, blow high or blow low, sailing
dozens of races in the course of a season
and not Infrequently Winning more races
than any man who was opposed to
them. And nobody goes into, raptures
over it on their account, either.
Women in England have exercised an
influence over yacht racing that baa
betfn decidedly stimulating, especially in
the smaller classes. It may stimulate
some American women to go and do
likewise to learn something about some
ot these Englishwomen who thus show
the world what healthy, fresh air and
salt-water loving girls are capable of.
TWO CBACfc YACHTSWOMEN.
One' might begin with the Button sis
ters. 'Miss Maud and Miss Winifred.
Their father, the late Sir BJchard Sut
ton, was a famous yachtsman in his
day, and their brother, who inherited his
,-itbcr's title and was a true chip of the
old Nock, brought the Genesta over here to
try conclusions with the Puritan for the
America's cup. It was natural, therefpre,
that the two, girls should take to yachting.
They began racing In 1601 with the balf
ralcr Eileen. A half rater, I ehould ex
plain, is a llttlo bit of a craft, a ernglng be
tween fifteen and sixteen feet ou the
water-line. But there is no belter sort of
boat in which to lcaru nil the niceties" of.
yacht sailing. Tho two -sisters sailed the
EUoeu between them, but next year they
dissolved partnership and each went In for
yacht racing ou her own hook. Ules Wini
fred gave Herrcshotf bia first introduction
to the British public by ordering from him
a .lull-rutcr, which was felicitously named
tho Wee Win. Win she did from c cry thing
lu her ciuftf, Including the half rater Pique,
which Payne had designed for Miss Maud,
and at the end of the seojonlt was admitted
that she was the fastest boatof her size in
British waters. And Miss Wiuirred fairly
won' her share of the glory, for she always
steered the boat herself, with one man on
board to attend to the sheets.
Miss Maud took iter innings next year.
Being ambitious to hold first place for a
season at least, and being convinced that
tlie surest way to reach that proud cnu
uence was to patronize the Yankee build
er, she gave Htrreshoff an order for a one
rater, which she named the Morwena. A one
rater, lie it understood, is between eighteen
and twenty feet on the water line ana in tho
up-to-date et J le have very long overhangs.
The Morwena answered all expectations.
Bhe was by long odds the crack boat of
her class at the end of h'er first season. Miss
Maud sailed her in all sorts of weather and
incidentally demonstrated that oilskins
and sou' westers can be made to look
A MATRONLY SAILOR WOMAN.
Mrs. A. Ilanlle Jackson next persuaded
her husband to get a Yankee boat nnd
dtin't hare to do much talking either to
bring lim around to her way of thinking
liecause the first experience with a small
British cutter in 181)1 had forced htm to
the conclusion that no man should tempt
Providence In such a craft unless he
wauls his fant-'Jy to realize on a 'hand
some life insurance iiollcy. So he got
Herreshoff to 'build a two and a one
half-rater and as a compliment to his
wife called her the Meneeu which Is Jrish
for "my darling." Mrs. Jackson is a
very pretty woman and she looks her
prettiest in her Jaunty yachting rig.
She sailed witii her huslund in the Me
ueen in all her races and fairly won her
share of the credit which the boat ac
quired as the fastest In her class. Mrs.
Jackson goes In for other sports besides
yachting. She rides to hounds in fearless
FOR ALL ROUND SPORTS.
Another -woman who goes in for hunt
ing as well as yacht racing is Mrs. G. A.
Schenley. She is as clever with a shot
gun or rifle as she Is -with a tiller. She
has owned and sailed several racing yachts
and entered the racing4Iists in 1880 with
the two and one-half-rate Thief. Next
year she went into the bigger class, racing
me iive'raicr valentine. A five-rater is
about thirty feet on the -water line. The
Valentine did not prove a success and the
plucky woman tried it again next year
with the five-rater Windfall, a fin-keel
craft, and reaped the rewafdshe merited,
tlie Windfall heading her class at the close
of the season, with twenty-two first prizes
and twelve others. Thus it will be seen,
that in three instances, -which do not in
clude Mrs. Jackson's half Interest in Mc
ncen's victorious career, the crack boats
in their respective classes in England have
been owned and sailed by women. Tliat Is
a record that tho sex certainly has a right
to feel -proud of.
AN INSPIRING SIGHT.
Last year Mrs. Schenley raced the five
rater 'Flatfish, built for her by Super.
The Flatfish did not prove the most suc
cessful boat in her class, judged by the
number of prizes to her credit, bnt khe
always sailed away from her compet
itors In a good blow, and it -was in such
conditions that Mrs. Schenley seemed to
enjoy the sport most. To see her at the
tiller of the Flatfish in a thrash to wind
ward in half a gale of -wind, with lee
rails hidden by a smother ot foam and
the spray dashing mast high, was a sight
much more calculated to impress the ob
server with proper Ideas concerning the
equality of the sexes than any number
of. speech?.) by the most voluble ot women
suffrage agitators. To handle a boat in
such weather requires nerve and courage
no less than ability and skill. Mrs. Schenley
has a husband who is a member ot (he
Royal Yacht Bquadrnn, bat he takes a,
back seat when it comest racing, pre-
ferrlng to 'take things easy in a crulsUig
Ice'tcb ol? 120 tons.'
No article about .women who race yachts
in England would, be complete without a
reference to Miss Lord. With the one-rater
Fay, last year she sailed no less than
sixty races and all told carried orf forty
prizes. Her fath&r owns a big' schooner,
the Sea Belle, and (the little Fay Is trans
ported from port to port, wherever there
happens to be racing going on, swang from
her davits. Miss Lord has a new Fay. this
year which promises 'to bo equally as
successful as the old one.
But though in. yacht raclrg English wo
men thus far have only entered the smaller
classes there are several who own large
sailing yachts wblcb.,(bey use for cruising
One of the biggett'iielongs to Lady Clif
ford, widow of Sir Jtdberl Cavendish Spen
cer Clifford, long1 iYeonian Usher of the
Black Rod. She may be credited with open
ing up a i ew irofesrn for women, forshe
is the first woman ItcEngland to obtain a
board of trade certificate as captain which
gives- her absolute iCommand of her own
yacht. She has Iongibccn fond of a life
on the ocean wart and being a woman who
enjoys having htr own way, the came to
the conclusion, after sundry experiences
with skippers who-tccasionally let the
wine run in whil their wits ran out, that
the only way to Ret it -was' to have herself
Invested with such authority as would
make dlEobedlcnce to her orders whllt
at sea rank mutiny which the laws of the
realm might punish severely. Bo, belng
already proficent in teamanship, she stud
led navigation, went before the board
of trade, passed a satisfactory examina
tion and is now captain as well as ownerof
tier own yacht. Of course, when she goes
on, a cruise she has a competent .sailing
master and crew on board, but there is no
longer question of divided authority.
On board "nf-tier own jneht, Lady Clifford
is at all times "She who must be obeyed."
Another one of the "grandes dames" of
English society who Is fond of going to
sea In a big yacht of her own is the Hon.
Mrs. MejcelMngram, eldest daughter of
the late Viscount Halifax. She has large
estates in Staffordshire and Yorkshire,
Is a "Lady Bountiful" among the poor,
and a pillar of the church. Bhe was one
of the liellcs ot the season when in 18(53
she married Hugo Mynell, who then put a
hyphen after his uame and annexed the In
gram. He was an M. P. and a fox hunter
of historical, renown, but he never owned
a yncht or had any taste for yachting.
It was not until after his death in 1671
that Mrs. Meynell-Ingrara took to alt
water. Her present yacht, the schooner
Ariadne,, she. purchased in 1880. The
craft is one of the largest two-stickers
afloat, being J 38 feet long, with a beam of
25 feet and a depth ot nearly 15. She .
fs a tplendld easel In a hard blow, and
is large enough to go anywhere. Mrs. Mey-
nell-Ingram has made frequent trips to
the Mediterranean In her and one to the
Baltic. She is rich enough to own a
steam yacht, but she is a true daughter
of a nation that owes Its ascendancy to
its mastery of the sa, and prefers the ex
citement and exhilaration of a wet sheet
and a flowing sea to the comfort and luxury
of slipping on an even keel in a miniature
By deeds and not by words women are
winning their way in the norld lu these
days. Nobody need be surprised if some
day a challenge for the America's cup
should come .from a syndicate of English
yachtswomen, every one of whom knows
bow to sail a boat to perfection.

AN ANCIENT ELM.
It Stood for Outline, nnd Falling,
Hroujit llnln to u Hallway Train.
From the New York Sun.)
For more years than any one can remem
ber an elm tree of extraordinary size has
stood In the village of New Milford, Pa.
It was there when the first settlers ar
rived, and when the woods were cleared
away It was left untouched by the wood
man's ax. Its trunk was nearly Tour feet
in diameter, and lu branches cast their
shade for more than a hundred feet around.
When the Delaware and Lackawanna Rail
road was built through New Miirord,
more than forty years ago, the track ran
close to the old tree, and the station was
erected almost In Its shade. Its great
height and wide spread of branches of
fered a favorable mark for storm and tem
pest, but while other trees were uprooted
from time to time this grand old tree de
fled the elements. It seemed as sound as It
was when the pioneers first saw It, and
was a famous landmark.
One night last week, as the locomotive
of a w e&t-tiound freight train was opposite
it, the great elm fell and crashed the engine.
Not a breath of air was stirring at the time.
The engineer, Timothy Cannon, and his
fireman were buried in the wreck of tlie lo
comotive, and several freight cars were
pitedJup and mingled with the ruins of
the tree and engine. Both the engineer and
fireman were taken from the wreck, and
it was found that neither had received as
much as a scratch. Fred Ban, a brakeman.
Jumped from his car and was badly hurt.
There was nothing revealed In the structure
of the great dm to indicate why it should
have thus fallen without warning. It had
broken iu two half way up the stem. Only
one minute and a half before It fell the
fast New York express. No. 8, bound cast,
dashed by, running forty miles an hour.
"It is not pleasant to speculate on what
the consequences would have been," said
a Delaware and Lackawanna official,
"If that tree had fallen a minute and a half
An Expressive Word's Origin.
It Is curious that the word "blackguard"
came into the language Just about the time
when coal -came into domestic use. In the
sixteenth century colliers were far from
popular, and in great bouses the unliveried
menials employed to carry coals to the fires
werecalled"blaciguards." Putting t wound
two together, as It were, the word "black
guard" soon became a. term of reproach.
The reason why colliers were disliked was
that coals' were for a long time popularly
supposed by the ignorant masses to Le un
wholesome. Thus a man who would carry
coals was easily Judged capable ot any
Indignity. The "knavery of the colliers"
of Newcastle is referred to by Decker

ing over the edge of a mirror it reflects

A unique holder to be filled with a
bouquet of wheat, o-;, and rye Is made
from a large ear of corn. The Interior to a
certain depth is very soft, and is therefore
readily scooped out by means of a sharp
knife. In harmony with Its rustic origin
the finish must be simplicity itself
Either varnish, gild, or, better still,
leave it as nature unadorned. Edge the.
top with a frill made of corn husk and fas
ten a bow of the same at the lower end.
Supend from a fine hemp rope, fastened
at both ends of the corn.
A nod idea in tie use of pn"ssed
flowers Is a window transparency. This
is nothing more than a happy arrangement
of pressed flowers, ferns and grasses
and leaves between two small panes of ordi
nary window glass. The under glass, to
which the bouquet is glued. Is first covered
with a sheet ot dull green tissue paper glued
to the pane with gum t ra gacanth. The two
glasses are Joined together by pasting a
strip of gummed papper along the edges,
which is afterward concealed by a narrow
silk ribbon. Two small rings for hanging
are inserted along the upper edge. Before
joining the two glasses a thin coat of gum
tra gacanth Is washed over the pane to which
the flowers are glued. The other pane Is
decorated with a gilt liorder, painted in any
pleasing geometric design, and a bright
butterfly, seemingly about to quaff the
nectar of the dainty nosegay.
Such a transparency, made of flowers as
sociated with a summer's Joy, is a perpetual
Inspiration for happy memories.
Railroad switchmen wear, or ought to
wear, only Congress gaiters. One lost his
foot In Maine recently for neglecting this
means of escape when a shoe catches be
