Atlantic Cut, Auirust3. As the heat
intensifies in the cities throughout the
country the crowd increases in Atlantic
City, trbere the warmest days are welcomed
by everybody. The warmer the weather the
better the bathing. Fully 10,000 people are
tossed abo ut in happy confusion among the
breakers every day, and out of this number
fully 2,000 are from Pittsburg and Alle
gheny. The month of August lias always
been recognized as the month of vacations
among the business men and their
employes in Pittsburg, and this year
promises to be no exception. Mr.
E. D. Smith, the passenger agent
said that the hundreds who came to Atlantic
City on the train were less than half of
those who left Pittsbarg, many of them
coins further East and some stopping in Phila
delphia. The party Is quartered at the differ
ent hotels, and will remain about two weeks.
There are varied attractions and entertain
ments In Atlantic City this year. Those of last
year are doubled. For a mile along the grand
board walk promenade attractions of every de
scription abound on either side.
i As the season progresses fads are becoming
more and more lashionable. The young lady
who does not carry a tliovcl in the morning is
not looked upun with much favor by those who
make and remake the ft vies at the seashore.
From 9 o'clock till 130 the handsomest girls in
the country, who make their summer home
here, can be seen promenading the principal
avenues and promenades of the city with small
shovels mounted on their shoulders a la rail
road style. It Is not a thing of beauty nor a
joy forever, but it is stylish and they must
carry them. Ibese shovels are maae of black
; painted sheet iron about four Inches square,
with a three or four foot hickory handle at-
It tarhed. They are used on the beach by these
.v belles digging holes in the sand tn which they
liury themselves up to the knees and sit for
hours in the blazing sun flirting with some
V .flttsburc or Philadelphia dude who wears a
i bash, smokes cigarettes and sa)s saucy words.
The latest fad amongthe Anglo-maniacs is the
"English smoke." It consists of a sweet briar
. or meerschaum pipe of the most hideous shape,
attached toalongstem and filled with cigarette
dust or coffee grounds, which the dudes swing
.'" from between their expressionless lips as they
stroll up and down the beach, imitating, in
their mind for some of tbem have a chemical
trace of brains the noblemen of England.
, CniXDKEJf 'S DAXCING EXIIIBITONS
are the most fashionable social affairs of the
evening here this year, and many of them are
marvels of beauty. On Wednesday evening
about CO of tho best dancers among the chil
dren of Pittsburg and Philadelphia gave an ex-
, hibition of their accomplishments as graceful
' dancers before 3,000 people at the Mansion
House pavilion. The affair was directed by
Prof. Charles C. Mattel and Prof. Constantino
" Carpenter, and eclipsed anything of its kind
ever ceen here.
Aside from this, the big bops, which are given
nightly ou this grand pavilion, seem to be
owned and virtually run by the Pittsburg con
tingent in Atlantic City. One never feels
lonely here. At the hops in the parlors, on
' the veranda or in the magnificently-decorated
I tind spacious dining balls of the Mansion, Mo-
Glade's 1'ittsburg lriends are to beseon, always
' cnjojlng themselves.
t The arrivals ot this week include many prom
inent and hundreds of less prominent people
i from Allegheny county. Altbougn the young
men who are here are generally the handsomest
going, they are considerably in the minority,
aud always at a premium among the girls.
, Among the pretty Pittsburg belles here this
week are: Ella Wisher, of Allegheny; Mrs.

Cape May Visitors Find FlenUr of
Jorment--Notes and Gossip.
Cape May, August a To-night Cape May
Is in its glory, because it Is the height of the
season, or, at least, one week away from its
height, allowing that one week from to-morrow
will be the blzgest day of ISS9 here. Taking all
in all. Cape May has done fairly well this year
so far, but tho outlook for this month is very
bright, all the leading hotels having their
rooms engaged for the main part of the month.
The season did not commence as early as it
might, but it promises to extend far into Sep
tember, when Cape May is really at its best.
But as it is now. everything is as pleasant as
one could ask. The beach is thronged daily
with pretty maidens. There is also tho casual
observer and the reporter, accompanied by his
sketch artist, who are laying their best plans
and improving every opportunity to capture
a good picture both by photograph and pen.
The bathlngfor the past week has beenall that
could be desired, and everyone that has entered
the water on these days feels Invigorated to a
wonderful degree. The number of bathers,
though not up to the standard, is quite large,
and includes about all the Plttsburgers who
happen this way.
There are more pretty women at Cape May,
and unmarried ones at that, than have been
noticed for several seasons. Of course they re
ceive much attention. '
About the hotels Plttsburgers are more
numerous to-night than at any previous time
during the present season; but taking them as
they come tbey will have to come in Increased
numbers if tbey expect to equal or exceed the
number of last year's visitors.
The pier has a great attraction for Pitts
burgers. Although tbelightoperasgiven there
are very light, they afford some amusement for
those who desire a chance, one or two nights in
tho week, from the routine of dances. One can
enjoy listening to a comic song and at the same
time get a good cool breeze from off the ocean.
COMING TO THE SEASIIOEE
is only a luxury, not a necessity, and, as the
general temperature all over the country has
been cool, the seashore travel has so far been
light. Another reason Is that great numbers
have gone to Europe.
The Advisory Board of the Relief Depart
ment of the Pennsylvania Railroad held its

The Cape May ball team now claims-the ama

The euchre party craze has seized bold of the
hearts and minds of almost everyone here, and

Scene OX one OI mew nappy gaiueriugis.
The bops of Tuesday. Thnrsdav and Satur

The children's ball given in Congress Hall
to-night was one of the great events of the sea

CQA'DTArjQUA, August 8. On his first visit
to Chautauqua a lecturer is subjected to a try
ing ordeal. Ills audience is both critical and
impatient. If he does not succeed in interest
ing them in tho first ten minutes he is doomed
to failure. The people leave until the audience
is scarcely half its original size. To be sure,
time is preciens at Chautauqua, and one cannot
afford to waste It over second rate lectures, but
it cannot be decided in the first few minutes
that a lecture will not be a success, and it is
nnjust not to give it a fair trial. Many good
things are lost in this way.
A twilight concert is given every evening on
the Point Dy Rogers' Band. This is the most
thoroughly enjoyed part of the day. Everyone
is out. It is delightful to walk up and down
under the trees, with that rich, exquisite musii
'floating down to you, and to watch the sunset,
the groups of gaily dressed people, and the in
numerable boats gliding lazily about. Chau
tauqua is quite like a fashionable watering
place at that hour. ,
Mr. Burbank. of New York, gave his first
reading Thursday evening. He is a favorite
here, so the amphitheater was well filled. In
deed, the largest audience that the amphi
theater has held this season gathered to hear
him. He carried the people by storm. The
enthusiasm has not reached such a pitch be
fore this season.
The regard in which James Wbitcomb Riley
Is held is frequently demonstrated in a most
Jileasing manner. At the mention of his name,
nfectlous applause is sure to break out.
People were somewhat disappointed in the
lecture given by Mrs. J. Ellen Foster; of Iowa,
on the temperance reform. It was not as
strone as ber reputation bad warranted them
in expecting, bbe tore theories to pieces with
out giving anything better. She does not be
lieve in prohibition, high license or local op
tion. Her view is that the liquor traffic should
be so restricted as to practically abolish it.

Bedford 'Speisqs, August 3. As a rule
this has been a bad season for summer resorts,
but something appears to have drawn an un
usually large crowd to Bedford. August
promises to Burpass July in numbers, and it is
noticeable that the July crowd are stayers,
some having been here the entire month. The
prominent people here have been un
usually numerous. As the eye wanders
over the lawn at the Springs it is
attracted by the form of ex-Senator
Wallace, sitting talking to ex-Governor
Curtln. Every now and then a peal of laughter
comes from the crowd that always surrounds
them. Judge Hawkins, by the wav. is also
quite a story teller, but he and John Hampton
are trying to see who can catch themost diss or
else explain in the smoothest way why the fish
would not bite. Then there's still another fine
conversationalist who comes to drink Bedford
water and recuperate George H. Weishons. of
The other evening I noticed on horseback a
handsome-looking old gentleman. On inquiry

EVOLUTION OF TASTE
Shown in the latest Window
Shades and Wall Hangings.
SIMPLICITY NOW ALL THE STYLE.

nvBirrxir FOB Till DISFATCH.1
The evolution of taste- in window shades
affords the critic study. From the green
paper still seen well preserved in old farm
bouses, the next step was the buff holland,
now sacred to kitchen premises, then the
gray linen and the dazzling white roller
blind, which still puts the eyes out with its
high light in a glaring room. Next fashion
in the metropolis took a daring flight, and
red parlor blinds shone down Fifth avenue
for a season, and vanished to quarters im
possible to polite acquaintance. They suited
too well the tastes of gambling dens and fortune-tellers.
The sober elegance of the soft,
natural Holland, embroidered in Byzantine
colors on the lower border, was the best
style, and always will be good.
This year the striped linen blinds reflect
foreign taste, and are very pretty for conn
try houses in the leaf-green and flax stripe,
the cool, bright blue and white, or crimson
and mixed white, beside the twilled tape
stripes in unbleached gray and white. The
color stripes give a subdued liveliness to a
long, dim summer sitting room, or, as house
keepers say, they furnish a room well. In
stead of hemming the sides, a narrow silk
binding is stitched on and pressed very flat,
which adds a finish and runs better on the
roller, Plain hems for the lower edge are
preferred to fringe, which curls and looks
TIIEY IiAST WELIh
These heavy linen blinds are sot sup
posed to need washing or renewal nnder
eight or ten years. A pair of unbleached
linen, which had been hanging in windows
for five years, showed no need of refreshing.
Practically, with the attentive care due
good furnishings, they never call for renovat
ing. A soiled curtain or chair or broken fur
niture is a witness against the breed
ing of a family. In English country houses
suits of furniture 300 years old are shown in
good keeping, and pieces exhibited at the Cen
tennial festival, quite as old, were in better
case than modern sets after six years'
use. Perhaps when we can afford things In
really good finish and design we will perforce
learn to unserve them.
The taste for tapestry and luxurious wall
hangings is upon this country, extravagant and
unsanitary and unsatisfactory as snch things
are. In one of those artist dens ot the brlc-a-brao
shops wich educate people into this sort
of spurious luxury, I beard an ambitious lad,
looking at the velvet-lined wills, say to bis
mother. "Why can't we have our house like
this?" Why indeed, can't people on 12,600, to
5,000 a year, cover their walls with green or
purple velvet at $13 a yard? What should tbey
want it for if tbey could afford ItT '
ONLT PIT FOB SHOW.
House decorators do not recommend fabrics
of any kind for walls on any ground except
that of expense and show. Velvet and tapes
try harbor no end ot dnst, and dust invites in
sects. Heavy fabric deadens sound so that It
is next to impossible to have good music In
these padded rooms audit makes the air stuffy,
dead and depressing. Common houses are well
nigh intolerable with tbelr turcoman
curtains and portieres which hold stale
air of yesterday in their folds, and forbid the
tree passage of fresh breath. Fashion by way
of compromise, bangs Its walls with panels of
Bohemian tapestry, woven of dyed cotten in
the panels of old designs, hawking parties, bat
tles, or court scenes, very well represented in
rich dark coloring, whiob would drive a sensi
tive person to suicide with Its somber effect,
however, after our cheerful "home surround
ings. The cotton tapestry is not prey to moths,
does not cast over $50 a panel, or require a man
to watch It all summer for fear of injury by
damp, mold or buffalo bug. as wool or velvet
does. In the large houses of New York trusty
men go the rounds every week, open the rues,
curtains and tapestry and lift the cbalr covers
to brush and beat for moth. Your butler at
f 40 a week and housekeeper at 100, can't be ex
pected to look after such matters and see that
any of the 20 house servants do it.
SOME ABTISTIC EFFECTS.
The new artistic sense rejects these cum
brous follies for simple homes. Tapestry
would do for facing coarse brick and mortar
walls, in times when people of degree did not
mind being overrnn with vermin under their
magnificence. Modern taste fills its panels
with painted tapestry, which closely resembles
the woven, and is free from its disabilities.
The demand is for washable surfaces, on walls,
if not Uncrusta with Its sprawly decorations,
then the tile-finished paper, which washes
with a sponge, or painted plaster In delicate,
cheerful Japanese designs of fruit blossoms,
reeds and filing birds, or at least wall paper of
quality which will bear a coat nt w bite abellao
varnish, like eggshell finish. The finest finish
to any wall, and most lasting, is given by white
of egg. in which the Italian masters painted
their great f mscoes. and found their own eras.

The summer cottages are falling out with the
tesselated hardwood carpets, as they are
called. In our dry, hot air the blocks shrink,
warp and in dog days swell again till tbey aro
outofphfee. Then Bridget's treatment does
not agree with tvood, and the general antique
effect ot grimy Oak and butternut is depressing,
and it Is not always easy to get a man from
town to do the floors every week. So moder
ate, sagacious folk fell back on well laid,
painted floors, in oak-brown, chestnut, Van
dyke brown or terra cotta, done in oil, with a
coating of thin shellac after the last of paint,
for gloss. This gives a floor which will wear
and look as well as a waxed floor, unless
special pains are taken with the latter. The
check matting in tea colors and terra cotta or
olive check, are favored rather than the large
figured mattings, and bamboo, rattan and
splint or rush furniture supersedes all other
for summer, though people acquire a liking tor
these springy, clean, light chairs and lounges
through the year.
The gay Viennese tables and cabinets. In
light color, painted with bonquets and var

other woven tables are the worst. Bright blue
and red linen, twilled or plain finish, is the ma
terial for cushions, enriched with floss embroid
eries and short tassel fringes ot colors ot the
work. Portieres are of linen, crash, gay with
many colored cross stlcbes as a Bagdad bang

views ot life, there is so much of It, and that is
so dreadful. The portable Berlin iron fire

their artistic modeling, in contrast to tho

has a number of little brown moles. A friend
advised the use of nltrio acid, but the
moles come back, and when I tried it on my
face It left a scar, an uglv, pinkish raised place,
which I tried to heal with salt and water and
failed." The acids are unsafe applications on
ordinary hands. The best way to remove
moles is loose, is to draw tbem out between
thumb and flngtr and tie a silk thread around
the neck of the mole. Cut the ends of silk
close and leave it on for three days or more,
then tie again till the mole wears off. A small
blister will remove the mole sometimes when
other means fail. A touch of iodine or lunar
caustic often cures, but care must be taken not
to mistake a "mother's" mark or nature's lor a
mole. Lot the scar alone for a few months,
only coating It with vaseline or carbolic oint
ment if sore. When the skin heals try lunar

will remove a score of warts and moles. Wet

such general satisfaction in "His Natural Life"
last week, will appear at Harris Theater again
