THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, JULY 29, 1890.
C?fc O C 1 3. 1 B"iii""lli'l!l';i"
Thcro will bo no stated match at the
Country club today, but general prnc
tlco will bo enjoyed by the players
who remain In town. For the next two
or three weeks few matches will prob
ably be arranged, as so many players
nro away. Last Saturday the two
ball game did not come off, us was
expected, and It has consequently been
postponed until a Inter date. Every
day u number of golfers may be scon
clambering on the Green Ridge Su
burban car en route for the links. It
Is cool nnd delightful out thcro these,
The golf craze has penetrated to
lovely Preston Park, tho abode of dea
cons and dreams. Preston Park Is the
npootheosls of a rest cute. You have
such a good time there In doing nnth
ljigaud having everybody else In thovl
cinlty. Including the farmers, to help
you that you cannot avoid resting.
You never have realized what Sunday
is until you spend a Sabbath day on
that ifnlr hillside between th two
lakes. As a facetious Scrnntonlan de
clares, "Not even elder Is allowed to
work at Preston Park on Sunday." No
boat Is ever unmoored from the shad
owy lake side. No flsli ever scuttles
away In fear at the approach of n
footstep on that day. Quail, partridge
and rabbit are unmolested nnd the
horses stand asleep In the stalls until
Monday morning. It Is the land of
heavenly rest. A walk Is the only In
dication of life or exercise.
Now they are to have golf nt Pros
ton Park. Do you suppose the mad
excitement which that game is sure to
cause In the human that In an un
guarded moment attempts It will break
out some Sunday over the silent
downs? Will not "taking a walk" bo
come mote popular on Sunday and
may not the crook of a cane or an
umbrella handle or bent branch of u
dead tree be surreptitiously employed
to hole out a pebble now and then as
the pedestrian comes upon a tempting
green beyond the orchard trees.
The links Just laid out at the Park
comprise seven holes and have been
staked under the direction of Mr. Wil
lis Klrkpatrlek. The beautiful rolling
hillsides sloping to the water and va
ried with numberless hazards afford
an unrivalled spot for a golf course It
may be predicted that In tho next two
years It will be enlarged and Improved
to a condition warranted to delight the
most fastidious golfer.
If you want to take a good book
nwny with you this summer, get
"Richard Carvel," now at Norton's,
. written by the brilliant young author,
Winston Churchill, whose book, "The
Celebrity," attracted so much atten
tion. It Is published by MacMlllan'3
company and exquisitely illustrated by
C. T. Chapman and Malcolm Fraser.
It is the great novel of the hour. No
less authority that Hamilton Mable
declares Its appearance to be an event
of Importance In American fiction and
that will probably take Its place as a
piece of enduring literature. While It
contains many historical allusions, It
cannot be said to add to the already
too long list of historical novels, being
more a picture of the times and man
ners on both sides of the Atlantic
Just as the Revolution was brewing to
Its boiling point. Washington, Paul
Jones, Charles Fox, Horace Wal
polo. Goldsmith, Garrick and oth-'
er notables (lit across its pages
and lend an Indescribable zest
to the story which is as full of action
as Dumas' creations with a hero
us virile as Anthony Hope's men of
deds, or Stanley Weyman's lighting
noblemen. A real hero tells the tale;
there is a real villain to stir
your wrath. You are sure to
like it, especially the chapter where
Richard Carvel rides a vicious and
diabolically inclined horse through
i rowded Hyde Park, In London, as the
r suit of a wager with his rival, tho
Duke of Chartersea. It is the fashion
to have a horse race or a horse deal In
'liooka nowadays. David Harum's
.great success lies mainly In that first
'chapter In which the Deacon figures.
"Prisoners and Captives" fFonn &
;('), by Morrhnan, whose "Sowers" had
Vu h a popular run, Is among the re
c ently revived books. It Is Merriman's
first novel, but was out of print. It Is
n perfectly fascinating story, with a
touch of Siberian grlmness through
out the pages. The hero is perhaps
the most admirable of his kind devised
by a modern author, but the finale
however, read It for yourself If you
did not do so years ago.
A Trooper Galahad" (Llpplncott) by
General Charles King. Is the latest by
that ever popular writer. A double in
terest centers in this story since Gen
eral King's achievements in Manila.
The scene Is laid in the southwest and
depicts life at a frontier fort with the
spirit and charm familiar to admirers
of the, soldier-novelist.
This Is a day of war preference, even
In stories. Tho wonder Is that we are
nut moro deluged with hastily written
rovels pretending to depict scenes In
Cuba and Manila. One of the latest
nnd best. Issued by Harper's Is "Crom
well's Own," by Arthur Paterson,
which Is claimed to be worthy to live
In historical fiction.
Speaking of Cuba, Burr Mcintosh's
now work, '"The Little I Saw in Cuba,"
Is destined to be a favorite. It Is Il
lustrated with photographs taken by
himself and tho book Is mainly about
the pictures, which is always an In
teresting thing about nny book,
L. II. Kvans, the artist and photog
rapher, has recently completed an oil
portrait of Mr. T. J. Foster, president
p the National Correspondence Schools
of this city, which Is attracting much
favornblo comment. It Is tho first
yleco of work finished by Mr. Kvans
since his return to tho city and is an
excellent likeness as well os an artistic
success. Mr. Foster, with hlB pre
maturely gray hair and general
personnel, Is a lino subject, to which
tho artist has done Justice in this por
trait. Mr. and Mra. Cyrus D. Jones gave

ing. H HER POINT OF VIEW
Women have certainly never looked
co well In shirt waists as this season.
It Isn't because wo nro growing accus
tomed to seeing thein, but because they
are prettier than ever nnd aro worn
with much mrre taste and c.re They
used to be horrid, lll-llttlng things with
long linpplng yokes nnd queer collars.
Then women had not solved the prob
lem of causing the shirt waist and tho
skirt to be on friendly terms In tho
back. Now It Is tho exception to see
anything but a nice neat Joining of the
two. No mote untidy safety pins and
sagging skirt bunds. I do believe the
bicycle Is In part responsible for
this. Tho bivrl" girl found It nbsn
lutcly necessary to havo an unmis
takable firmness of purpose In the fas
tening of her skirt and shirtwaist in
tho back ns well ns In guiding her
vtheel. There had to bo no half-way
measures, hence a system of hooks and
fastenings that gradually migrated to
all skirts worn with a shirt waist. They
don't hump up In tho back any more
and they don't sag at tho band.
But the woman who wears a shirt
waist correctly cannot dress in a hur
ry. There are details to giving tho
proper effect that take time, nnd a lot
of It. Unless she Is a millionairess nnd
has an Infinite supply of sleeve buttons
nnd studs, continual changing of these
appurtenances Is demanded. Then there
Is the belt. Of course she does not
wear a leather belt any more unless
she lives somewhere nfar from civili
zation and consequently she must havo
an appalling assortment of ribbons.
The white ones nre most used and
therefore must bo moro frequently re
newed, and there must be many other
shades to match the waists, for If she
wants to secure the, long-walsted effect
now In vogue she must wear a belt as
nearly tho color of the shirt waist ns
possible and not like the skirt. This
means a frequent chnnge of buckles
unless she can afford a dozen sets, and
all this takes time. Oh, the worn in
who dresses In haste shows It when
she starts out In a shirt waist.
It will not be many seasons until tho
men are wearing shirt waists. You
Just wait and see. In fact may we nil
l)o there to see. Poor things, I'm sure
they would bo sensible If they adopted
such attire any hot day. The problem
which agitates the coatiess man Is his
suspenders. Everybody knows he- has
to wear 'em if he wants to be comfort
able and happy In his mind, but some
unwritten law states that they are Im
modest If In evidence, so he swelters
In a coat and If he leaves off his vest
makes a feeble pretense of wearing no
suspenders by donning an expansive
and accordingly hot belt outside of
them and his other apparel.
Now the shirt waist would bo a boon.
He could wear the objectionable sus
penders under the waist which could
drop easily over tho outside, after the
fashion of the old-time "roundabout,"
the band being concealed by ,i slight
pouching of the waist. The said band
could be fastened to the top of his
trousers something in tho style of tho
blouse waists of early boyhood, If so
desired. It wouldn't so much matter
then If he was always uncertain as to
the location of his waist line. At any
rate, the garment would be a Joy for
ever and the wearer could go about
knowing that ho was correctly gowned
I mean wnlsted and still be comfort
able. Of course they could be tucked and
rallied or made up with embroidered
Inserting If so desired. Individually
speaking, I should prefer to sep them
with flat box pleats back and front, but
of course there are men who would
want to wear frills. Tney now ''onfino
their exuberant taste to the handker
chief tie with Its floating ends, but no
doubt they would appear in some ex
tremely giddy shirt waists. Hasten the
There are few things more pathetic In
this world than the spectacle of that
lngersoll family clinging to the dead
man that was the loved husband nnd
father. It Is moro than pathetic; it is
deeply tragic. Other people weep over
their dead, others are reluctant to look
their last upon the silent, unresponsive
face and linger long Indeed by the side
of tho casket dreading tc shut their
darling away from the llgnt and tho
beauty of a world which seems very
real nmld the shadows of an Impenetra
ble mystery. Hut moro real than any
thing else Is the feeling within most
grieving hearts that somewhere, some
time, they shall meet the one who now
refuses to answer when they call, who
will not weep with them nor smile with
them. Mingled with the desolation at
the grave Is the vague consciousness
that the spirit is only Just beyosd tho
reach of the mourner's voice, and that
were not mortal eyes holdon they could
see the fnmlllnr face and the sweet
Hash of recognition.
Few of us can stnnd in the presenco
of death and, impressed with the differ
ence between what Is and what wns a
few hours before, when that mysterious
something wo call life wns still pres
ent, not feel It Is that which bus. fled
which Is the real person we loved and
not the Thing lying Inert and silent
uncaring for our misery and from
which our whole physical being shrinks.
To most of us, those who were dearest
nro still living nnd nro not In the grave,
not In an urn, not lost forever, but
however glorified their condition, still
looking back upon us, and If only per
mitted would bid us check our tenrs
nnd bo glad for the bliss upon which
they have entered,
How painfully different Is the grief of
the Ingorsolls no hope, no light, no
comfort, only an awful darkness, n vust
desolation, an Inllnlto logs. It Is not
wonderful that they should havo clung
desperately to all that was left tho
stiffened, motionless form, while the
real something which, after all, was
their loved one has vanished forever.
It 1h (lifllcult for orw who has hopo of a
hereafter and belief In n continuation
of happiness for tho soul In another
spheio to Imagine actual unbelief and
sincere conviction that death ends all,
It Is not a pleasant thought.
Robert G, lngersoll had a poifeH
right to set up for himself the uufalih
which ho boasted during tho brief years
of liU brllllnnt life. No one can blamo
hint, living or dead, for his honest
doubts ns far n- they affected his own
Individual personality. What ho had
no right to do wns to Insist by tho spell
of his eloquence that tlw world should
think his thoughts, share his agnostic
ism and affirm that It, too, did not know,
that there was anything beyond the
grave, and to doubt that tho spirit la
Immortal. He took away from many
hearts the comfort they nnd known,
frail nnd faint Indeed as their 'little
light of faith may havo been. He guvo
absolutely nothing In return.for tho "re
ligion" of merely living a beautiful un
selfish life, of doing good to others, of
wronging no man by thought, word or
deed, Is not a guaranteed source of sat
isfaction. It Is of little value when tho
lonely soul walks In tho shadows of
death or cannot lift Its gaze beyond tho
dcptl's of an open carket whero lie '
joy of n lifetime.
It Is the Irony of fate that lngersoll
took also nwny from those dearest to
him, for whom he would havo died to
save a greut sorrow, the same consola
tion of which ho had deprived thous
ands who hnd listened to his voice or
read his doubting words.

Wishes to Be Quoted as Heartily Endors

"During and since my term of ser
vice as governor of the state of Kan
sas, I have found great relief from In
somnia, from which I have been a great
sufferer, by the use of Paine's celery

The reason why Paine's celery com

EXCITING BATHING IN HAWAII
Riding tho Surf a Most Exhilarating
Honolulu Correspondent San FrancVco
To experience the true poetr of mo
tion one must try surf riding. There is
something about going thirty wiles an
hour on the crest of a white-foamed
breaker, ever yawning and surging to
overwhelm you nnd give you a battle
for your life, but ever, by the Impo
tence of its own wrath, carrying you on
in exhilaration and safety that makes
the blood tingle and raises the mere
pleasure of physical existence to tho
plane of Intellectual ecstasy. There is
all in It that there Is In coasting or
tobogganing or shooting the chutes
and a great deal more besides; some
thing so subtle thub it can only bo
felt, not described, and yet It Is so real,
so powerful, so embracing Hint It takes
hold of even the most unpoetleul na
ture, fascinates and enthralls it.

quests In an environment which did
not offer many material aids to ad
vancement, proved his possession of
high Intellectual qualities nnd capacity
for attainment In no moro conclusive
manner than when he read In the roll
ing serf this nature's secret of motive
power. Since the waters wero gath
ered together and called sea the surf
has been rolling in in long breakers
upon every shore tho ocean laves. But
It was tho Hawaiian alono of all tho
sons of earth and sea who discovered
Its subtle power and the subtle power
to control and utilize It. Tho art of
surf riding is Indigenous to tho Ha
waiian Islands. To sco a frail out
rigger canoe. Itself a monument to tho
patience and skill which hollowed and
shaped It with rude tools from the
trunk of a koa tree, glide with almost
tho swiftness and grace of nn eagle in
flight before a white-crested breaker,
without a tremor or a Jar from tho
angry waters behind it, Is a sight
worth a long Journey to see. To be In
the canoe, to experience the annihila
tion of tlmo and space, to bo always
escaping, is a sensation worth a life's
ambition to feel.
But just a llttlo moro vivid, Just a
llttlo more exhilarating, Just a little
more intense than surf-canoe riding is
surf-board riding. Which of the two
pastimes is the earlier in conception
prescribed by eminent practitioners for
diseases arising from a. debilitated
nervous system. Prof. Phelps, Dart
mouth's great physlcinn-tencher, gave
to his profession In Paine's celery com
pound a positive euro for sleeplessness,
wasting strength, dyspepsia, bilious
ness, liver complaints, neuralgia,
rheumatism, all nervous diseases and
Idney troubles. For all such com
plaints Paine's celery compound has
leceeded again and again, where
t rcrythlng else has failed.
There Is the same difference between
Paine's celery compound nnd nny one
of Its competitors whether the played
out sarsaparillas and nerve tonics or
tho hnstlly concocted "latest thing on
the market" that there Is between the
product of the highest professional
skill and the work of a smntterer.
And tho peooie have found out the
difference. The old-time nerve reme
dies and blood purifiers have hail their
Kvery person who works beyond his
strength should make up for the drain
and the older In practice It Is impos
sible to say. Tradition is silent on the
subject and both ante-dnte history.
There is reason to believe that the surf
board, being the simpler Implement,
came before the canoe. However that
may be, the conditions which admit of
surf-bont riding are rarer than those
of surf canoeing, and though tho two
have been known and described since
Captain Cook discovered these Islands,
It Is only within the last few weeks
that actual pictures of surf-boat riding
by Instantaneous photography, show
ing It as It Is and correcting erroneous
Impressions regarding it, ns the same
means corrected tho traditional Im
pressions of tho horse's movements In
running, have been procured.
Tho conditions of surf-boat riding re
quire a long, sandy beach, gently and
evenly sloping for a long distance Into
the sea, without rocks or depressions,
so that the surf will roll in long,
jweeplng breakers witli a uniform
speed from the time they form till they
waste and spend themselves on tho
shore. Surf-canoeing does not require
nearly such uniform nor perfect condi
tions, because In the canoe the speed
can be accelerated or diminished by
the use of paddles to keep In exactly
the right position with relation to the
rolling breaker to get Its forward mo
tion For years past there has been no
place nenr Honolulu whero the condi
tions were right for surf-board riding,
nnd It became almost u lost art. Up to
a few months ago thero was only one
native known In Honolulu who could
ride the surf board stundlng upon It.
But within tho last two or three
months a sand spit has formed off tho
Wnlkikt bench right in front of tho
suburban residence of Colonel George
W. Macfurlane, which gives the perfect
conditions. Surf-board riding has, in
fact, become a fad, and a large number
of people, both whites nnd natives,
have become experts In the art.
Tho surf board is II or 0 feet long and
from 12 to 1G Inches wide near tho for
ward end, drawn to a rounded point In
front and tapering slightly nft. In
general outline Is resembles greatly a
cofiln lid. It Is perfectly flat on tho
upper side, hut deeply beveled nt the
edges and front on tho under side. To
rldo It the rider goes out us far us he
can get In tho water on the shelving
beach; then, facing tho shore, holds
the board up In front of him, point up
most, the bottom or under side resting
on his middle. Just as the rolling mo
tion of an advancing breaker reaches
on his or her nervous system by taking
the surest of all Invigorators.
Paine's celery compound Is a nervn
Invlgorator and regulator and nn Ideal
blood cleanser. It takes away tho
"wear" on tho nerves and enables
them to work without tearing them
selves to pieces, and It prevents un
healthy reaction of tired nerves on tho
If you suffer from bad congestive
headaches, felt In the back and sides
of the head, with sharp, twitching
pains, they will quickly disappear if
Paine's celery compound Is used. It
solves the problem of how to build up
the nervous system, ns no other reme
dy has ever done.
It cures constipation, biliousness,
dyspepsia, headaches, sleeplessness
and every sign of Impure blood. Ner
vousness whether In tho form of
headaches, sleeplessness. Indigestion,
or n host of other troubles Is a dis
ease, and as such can be driven from
the system by the use of Paine's celery
him he gives n spring upward and for
ward, bringing the board flat upon tho
water with rather more than hnlf his
body upon it. The springing move
ment gives a forward motion to him
self nnd the board, which he adds to by
kicking against the rolling wall of
water behind him until his speed is ex
actly that of the breaker. From that
point on, when the rider has ucqulred
tho art. tho i oiling motion of the surf
carries him till It lands him high nnd
dry on the shore. There are threo
points in particular to be observed In
surf-board riding: To spring at tlm
right moment, to ncqulre the exact
speed and direction of the breaker,
and to keep both sides of tho board
level. If ono side gets a little deeper
in the water than the other it drags,
changes the direction and the breaker
From this point the next stage In pro
gression In the art Is to be able to rest
one's elbows on the board and one'ss
face in one's hands. To rldo standing;
on tho board, the rider gradually
moves his body forward on It, thou
rises on his knees, and Unally to his
feet, always keeping the edges of tho
board perfectly level. As the break
ers roll In at about thirty miles nn
hour and tho rider cannot go out Into
water much deeper than up ta his
waist, because otherwise he cannot
muke the necessary Initial spring, It
can bo seen that to ride standing re
quires not only great dexterity but per
But tho triumph Is worth tho effort,
Skillful rhleis can ride In conditions'
not perfect by being able to adjust
their speed to the varying speed o
the breaker by using their hand as a,
paddle when thoy feel they are going
slower than the breaker, or us -a drag
when they fell they lire going faster.
Surf canoeing is exactly tho samo in
principle, but tho novice can enjoy It
by going out with an experienced ca
noeist. "During tho hot weather last summer
I had a severe attack of cholera' mor
bus, necessitating my leaving my busi
