ENGLISH FADS AND FANCIES.
How the Women of England Find Ex
ercise and Amusement.
The prominent place which women
have suddenly taken for themselves in
all forms of healthy outdoor exercise is
of such recent growth that it has not yet
had time to form itself into clubs and
associations. We in London have not
yet seen women able to form coteries
and ''Ladies' luncheons," as the sex is
said to do in New York and Boston, into
which no intrusive male foot may enter.
Whatever they may do across the At
lantic, it is certain that the fair Yankee
visitor does not here show such aggress
ive femininity, and is glad enough to
take her pleasure in company with de
spised man —when the man is English !
No form of recreation, to a well-horn
Englishwoman, can, of course, compare
with riding. Tine, in London, that is
only to be obtained in the Row, but
under no circumstances does a well born
girl look more fascinating than when
"turntd out" for the midday i ide.
Time was when a tall hat and the
most perfect and severest habit were the
strictest essentials of tiding in the Row.
During the last year or two, however, a
considerable relaxation has come over
full riding dress, and a round straw hat,
a covert coat and cotton shirt were
often, indeed, most frequently—worn.
The types and conditions of womenkind
to be seen here are unending. The
titled daughter of an M. P. H. is at In r
cisc here just as she will he in 11 c
evening at a dance, or later on exchang
ing friendly greetings with her father's
tenantry at the covert side. Her Brays
water in charge of the riding master,
aud thinking that being on horseback,
is an overestimated pleasure; here is
the stout and heavy lady, who hopes
that violent exercise upon a weight car
rier will allow her to have her dresses
made an inch or two tighter in the
waist, and there is the professional
rideress with a showy horse to sell.
Yes, the Row is certainly the tirst place
of "recreation" for women in London.
The past season has seen driving jump
to a great height, of favor among fashion
able women. A smart pony and a little
ralli cart are what they have chiefly af
fected, but it is dangerous to the safety
of humbler citizens that every woman
believes driving to be the easiest thing
in the world. Only those who can and
do drive well recognize how line an art
it is under any circumstances, and that
in London it really requires a great
amount of skill and nerve not to endan
ger either one's own life or that of other
Compared with what it has done in
the provinces, 'cycling has made small
progress in London as a lady's pastime.
It is, however, now becoming more
popular, as several well - known
women are adopting it. Mrs. Hawies,
anu.ng others, is an enthusiastic tri
cyclist, and can give many useful hints
to other ladies about the wisdom of tak
ing Irain out beyond dreary suburbs and
reserving strength for long runs among
the hills and pretty scenery which can
be reached so easily from London.
It is ceitiin that the prejudice which
once existed regarding ladies riding B
tricycle is fast dying out, and many
women now, who are leading sedentary
lives in offices and schools, look forward
to a Saturday afternoon's "run" as a
restorative and tonic after the week's
work. —London Times.
A USEFUL LIFE ENDED.
The Death Yesterday of Hon. Henry
Henry C. Carr died yesterday at noon,
at his residence, at 150 Twenty-third
street. Mr. Carr was born in James
town, R. 1., 1889, where he lived for
twenty years and received his early edu
cation, and he graduated at Brown
University in 1882. He studied law in
New York city in the otlice ol Judge
Chancy Shaffer, and was admitted to the
bar in 1884. He moved to Tipton, lowa,
in 1807, where he resided twenty years,
engaged in the practice of his profession.
He was president of the school board of
Tipton, and was also mayor of the town
for six years. He served his district as
state senator, in which capacity he held
a high position in the esteem of his con
stituency and fellow senators for his
sterling qualities and legislative ability.
He came to this city in 1887. and has
been engaged in the practice of law up
to within ten days of bis death, which
resulted from heart trouble and diph
theria. Since coming to Los Angeles he
has made for himself many friends
among the legal fraternity, which uni
versally regarded him as a man of more
than ordinary ability, and in whom
complete confidence could be placed, for
his character was above reproach, and
his plain, straightforward way of doing
business won for him the highest
esteem of his clients.
He leaves a wife, two grown daugh
ters and a son of 12 years to mourn their
loss. While the chimes oi Christmas
were ringing at high noon he peacefully
and quietly breathed his last. The
warmest sympathy of a large circle of
friends is extended to the family in this
their distress. The funeral takes place
today at 2 0.m., and the remains will be
taken to Rosedale cemetery.
Cotree and Chicory.
It has been noticed by nearly every
one that for every two men who'say col
fee keeps them awake o' nights there is
one man who drinks it late at night,
and takes it to allay nervousness and
headaches. This is due to a difference,
not in the men, but in the coffee. In
most eating houses and boarding houses
chicory is added to coffee to give it a
rich color. It is this chicory that
destroys men's nerves. The average
"black coffee," even in stylish restau
rants, is usually made of the German
prepared "kali'e essenz," which is all
chicory. Pure coffee does not look so
black and rich, but it leaves the nerves
alone after all.
Talking about coffee and nerves, there
is a rich Bowery restauranter who is
said to have made himself a physical
wreck through his pride in serving good
coffee to his customers. In big restau
rants the coffee is put in a sieve or bag
inside an urn, and then steam is turned
on to boil it. The cooks are apt to begin
to serve it before the beans are well
steamed. The restaurant keeper in
question tasted every brewing of coffee
in his place for years, and allowed none
to be served until it was rich and strong.
Of course he always added the usual
two ounces of chicory to each pound of
coffee. He nearly killed himself. He
shakes like a leaf in a gale.—[New York
The Wlnter Girl.
The winter girl ia going to be as Rus
sian as possible. Her glove-fitting gown
will have a band of fur about it, and
she herself will be wrapped up in furs
from out of which her pretty face will
look like the I'resh rose that she is.
The girl of today has lost the rather
dried-up look that the girl of ten years
ago had, and the reason for it is this:
Knowing that her home is kept at sum
mer heat all through the cold days, she
dresses as belits that, and only' when
she goes out does she assume the very
heavy furs and the warm long wraps
that she knows are desirable as well as
becoming. Walking out in the fresh
air, slip gains all that is good fram it
and doesn't grow cold, and when she
comes in and throws aside her coat she
is not too warmly gowned for the heated
air in which she exists. She has learned
that while tbe room may he warm, it is
also desirable to have ie well ventilated,
and the consequence is that, her eyes
are brighter and her skin clearer than
ever before.—New York Star.
An KxpcnsiTe Subscription.
Several years ago an agent of the Kei -
nebec Journal, while in the town ol
China, met a gentleman, the father of a
large family. In the course of the con
versation, the gentleman remarked that
he ought to have the Journal free for
one year, in consideration of his being
the father of so large a family of thriv
ing children. The agent replied with a
laugh: "When you can look with
parental pride on your twentieth child,
you shall have the paper free for one
year." The Journal yesterday received
a letter from the happy father saying
that the twentieth child is born,"and
mother and child are in the best of
health. That father's name will be
placed on the Journal lists free oi charge
for the next twelve months.—Kennebec

When medical science shall have iso
