New Tork, July 20. The toilets most
interesting just at this moment are yacht
ing and boating costumes. The season
for these sports being now in full swing,
and the dainty rigs Uiemselves more ador
able than ever. Time was when a pretty
girl thought any old wool gown she was
not afraid of spoiling a proper equipment
for yachting. But in these sporting time's
water toilets are as Important as any
in the summer wardrobe second only, in
deed, to wheel clothes and, along -with
materials never seen on the water before,
the great spreading collars and epaulettes
of land gowns may be recognized. They
are made of the brown linens aud ecru
batistes that have grown so popular for
this use. And with them the gown texture
will be blue serge or blue mohair, -which
stuffs 6tand salt air becomingly.

in cardinal red is said to be the latest thing,
and a costume in this tint and texture,
affair one would imagine. On the contrary,
it was of uncommon elegance and distinc
tion, and the girl who -wore it was tall
and slight to a degree gay colors, re
member, are a wonderful counterbalance
to bones, ami she was or the pale, hazel
eyed type that is so adorable in red. -
The costume was in twopieees, a short,
half-fitting jacket, that opened over a
blouse vest of white mull, and a plain
skirt with strapped seams, and a full um
brella effect at the bottom. In contrast to
this frilly edge the top or the skirt seemed
very scant and the back was without the
stiff godeted effect hitherto supposed in
dispensable to all modish jupes. These new
godet pleats, however, four in fact, this
number having superceded the trio of the
spring: but they hung so easily and simply
as a gathering back would have done, the
skirt being unlined and with only the bottom
faced and crinoUned ten inches up.
The jacket had a "ripple" tail and hip
pockets, and was held together in front by
two straps, one slightly above the bust line.
For the rest revcrs were very small
and sleeves the gigot shape and very big;
and in the -way of accessories, tlie red gown
rounded off with a white tailor hat, rather

banded with red, white wash leather

White blond net, by tiie way. is the
very latest importation in the way ol veil

New York, but in Paris fashionable ele
gantes are wearing it and a plain veil with
small fcattered spots is advised as a becom

For chilly moments, a sailor blouse of
the same texture as the skirt, say blue
serge or black bunting could be drawn over
the sweater, which in one shape buttons on

A sweater more becoming to slim women

Striped wool sweaters are seen, however,
and an effective fad is to have the club

woven in or appliqued over the breast,
the sweater in this case being in a solid

and every time the wind blew it was ob
served the little lady wore black silk stock
ings. Her shoes were patent leather pumps
whose flat soles and round toes gave an
easy boyish look to Itersltm extremities.
An adorable young matron in the same
party, whose sunburnt face and whitethroat
were divided neatly by a straightline under,
her saucy chin, wore a plain black cheviot
skirt. The blouse had bishop sleeves and
a big box pleat down the front, a great
sailor collar, under which was worn a
long black satin tie, turning low away
from the throat. Scarlet silk lined the
skirt effectively, and In lieu of petticoats
the dashing little matron boldly declared
she wassporting bloomers.
"Black China silk," she said; and added
that she lx'lieved that she had almos
given up petticoats forever. The time
is pnst for women to lie slaves to clothes,
went on the stylish reformer, settling a
big red thing that looked like a Tam that
hnd lost its pompon on her head.
"There Is no fun in yachting with frills
and lace constantly wrapping around your
ankles; and when I see a woman on a
yacht with petticoats like that and a fixy
cotton frock, I know in a minute that she
hasn't any sea legs, and that directly she'll
get sick and have all the men around her
dosing her with salts and things! Wo
men who know the water always wear
wool and good Halt water colors when they
really mean business. Whito flannel
makes a delicious frock for dressy occasions,
and the right shade of red makes a wonder

sailors all adore red so that is somethlng-to

wise yachtwoman, "if you have a Jacket
it must l)e something that can button right
up to your chin when necessary. Otherwise
it won't iHi the least protection In a chilly
blow, and It will fly around in a way to
make you look a goose generally."
Apropos of the red headzcar, the little
matron declared it was a "bereh," such as
the Paris students wear in the Latiuquarter.
DUCK AND PIQUE.
In the way of linen, duck, and pique
yachting and boating, gowas, three seen
at the Larmont Club house seemed es
pecially effective. The linen gown, which
was in deep flax tint and a heavy butcher's
linen, was made with an Eton body that
fastened down to, the full skirt at the
back with a broad belt ornamented with
three enormous fancy buttons. A yel
low duck had the bottom of tbo very
flared skirt and the rovers of the body
trimmed with several rows of narrow
brown braid. '(
A gray pique was most adorable. The
model was a vastly wide skirt in a single
piece, being cut on tlie length of the goods,
and a short sort of reefer coat with white
linen rovers and cuffs' With it was worn
a white straw sailor with gull's wings,
and the shoes weje while cariTus. tipped

Descended Through a Skylight.

(Special to The Times )
Pittsburg, July 21 Ben Richards, a
desperate burglar, was held a prisoner
for hours yesterday morning at 100 Second
avenue by Miss Hazel Bowman, a
plucky young woman, -with a revolver.
Miss Bowman contemplated going away
on a visit to Atlantic City and had con
siderable money in her room and a valu
able set of diamonds Richards, who is
a professional thief, and has done time
Tor burglary, learned that she was about
to leave the city, and timed his visit
Miss Bowman was rather late in retir
ing ahdon account of the heat did not sleep
soundly About 2 a m she was awakened
by a noise 011 the roof, and after waiting
a few moments in suspense saw the head
of a colored man peeping cautiously down
through a skylight over her head.
Miss Bowman seemingly took no notice of
the man, but getting out of bed went
to another room and returned with some
cigarettes, and she also brought a re
volver along, which she slipped below
her "pillow. Lighting one or the cigar
ettes the young woman puffed away,
After a time she took the weed from
her lips aud made a feint of going to sleep.
Soon the suspicions of the burglar, if ho
had any, were lulled, and alter taking a
survey or the room he commenced to quielly
de.scend by way of the skylight.
When the body of the man was abouthalf
way through the aperture Miss Bowman
leveled her revolver on him and ordered him
to stop. She seemed so determined that
the man saw nothing else to do but to make
a virtue of necessity and obey.
Mis Bowman lit? another cigarette and
calmly smoked, whifajshekept the burglar in
this awkward predicament until 5 a. m.
At that hour Officer Dalton came along
and placed the burglar under arrest. He
recognized Richardsias one of the most noted
criminals in the city.
Icamo along to tho gate of a humble cabin
in a town in Alabama jfist as an old nogro
handed a couple of jugs fo his son, who was
about ten years of pgc, and said:
