New York and tho Surf.
Few New Yorkers ever stop to think
that one of that city's chief attractions
is the surf. Philadelphia^ must go
fifty-six miles to the ocean. Though
the fottc of Baltimore and Washington
Uve on tidewater, they must travel for
surf bathing to the capes. Boston ls
the only other large town on the At
lantic seaboard besides New York that
has the ocean at its back door. San
.Francisco and Los Angeles are the
only Pacific coast cities within trolley
ride of ocean beach. None of the Mex
ican gulf cities can be compared to
New York as a seaside resort and' as
to New Orleans, another Mecca of the
pleasure seekers, that lies mor? than
100 milos above the mouth of the Mis
sissippi Bat including Cor^y Island
and Rockaway, a good many miles of
Greater New York are bounded hy the
ocean. This- fact, just to consider the
money mafrtng side of lt, means an
enormous revenue to the metropolis
from the inland parra of the country.
It ls aa advantage other^grelit world
centers, such as London, Paris and
Berlin, do Dot enjoy.-Argonaut
The Short Step Between.
"I was^o? sin ocean -liner when she
ran on the rocks off the English coast
some y?ara ago." -said a traveling man,
"and tn the panie that ensued there ls
one Incident that "stands out In my
memory, illustrating: the slender thread
between tne':tragic and the ridiculous.
We -bad a fellow on board who had
managed to ke ?p pretty well loaded
all the way across, and when we
struck the rocka he was In his usual
condition. When everybody thought
for sure we were going to the bottom
he sat down at the piano in the saloon,
and what do yon suppose he began
playing? Home. Sweet Home.' Some
body .went to him and begged him to
stop. Immediately he switched off
from the doleful strains of the old
song to the rollicking melody of Down
Went McGtaty.' The absurdity of the
thing seemed to strike everybody at
once, and a general laugh followed.
The tension was relieved, and there
was good order ofter that"
The Restaurant Piccolo.
Writing from Dresden, an American
says: "There is at least one thing in
fr German restaurant for which one
would look in vain In our country.
That to the piccolo. Toa may think
that I mean a musical instrument and
that any orchestra In any country
might have one of these, bat you are
wrong. My piccolo, the one at the
restaurant, to a human being. He ls
a boy twelve to fifteen years old, who
assists the regular walters. He wears
the regulation walter's costume and
Hooks funny In his splketall coat. He
to as solemn as a funeral, knows how
to extract a tip and for the high priv
ilege of retaining his place and taking
his first degree as a walter must en
dure much abuse at the hands of the
head waiter and his underlings. He

.who because of his appearance could
never prosper in our country."-New

It was the third Earl Spencer who
added ? word to the language in conse
quence of a wager. The bet was that
by cutting off the tail part of his over
coat he could bring into fashion over
coats so short that the skirts of the
undercoat would show beneath. He
' .won his wager, and "spencer" became
the name both of that garment and of
the feminine one afterward construct
ed In its likeness. The peerage has
added more than one name to the
terminology of costume. Everybody
knows "Wellingtons," and the billy
cock hat is said by some to be really
"Billy Coke," from Coke of Norfolk,
earl of Leicester. But none of these
examples in the sphere of clothes rivals
