His Terrible Time Trying- to Loso
- art Umbrella.
, Young Noodles has often been heard
to say that a gentleman's! umbrell:
should always bo in its neatness and
oven in tho careful manner of its roll
in?;, an outward awg visihlo sign of his
own inward and spiritual grace?that it
should be regarded, in a word, as a most
important articlo of dross. On rainy
days, at all events, the man who is well
hooted and well gloved is im: we il at?
tired, notwithstanding the Fijench say?
ing, unless ho carries a proper pnra
pluie. Noodles himsolf has been moro
than once seen to seek shelter from a
storm in a doorway, in order to avoid
undoing his umbrella and thus spoiling
its walking-stiek-liko symmetry.
The other day, however, while hasten?
ing down E street to meet an important
engagement, ho was overtaken by a

squall, which turned his umbrella in?
side oat and transformed it into a hope?
less wreck in less time than it takes to
tell the tale, says the Washington Star.
He dodged into a shop and wailed there
five minutes until the shower had passed
and tho sun shoab out again. While
thus delayed ho wrapped th?. umbrella
up into some sort of shupo and stood it
conspicuously near top door; then bo
walked back to the rear of the store and
looked over the stock,
"I'll give somebody an opportunity t j
steal it," said Noodles to himsolf. "it
would never do for me to he seen walk?
ing down the street with an umbrella
Rut, to his disgust, the umbrella was
j still there by the doorway when he
I came back, lie took it reluctantly and
walked out upon the sidewalk. A very
pretty girl chanced to pass by at the!mo?

that her oye fell upon the umbrella in

"I must get rid of it in some way,]' he
thought. '"Tho best way will be togo

So Noodles turned into a plxco thai

tho attention of the next customer, who j
picked the utnurclia up and i.:' I p ditcly:
"Is this yours, sir?"'
Noodles gritted his teeth and tecept
cd tho umbrella with pretended thanks, ?
"1 must di?pse of this awful thing,"
bo reflected, as he let fiy the sere :i
door of the saloon behind him. "To j
deposit it in the gutter is not practica?
ble. Perhaps the host plan will be to
abandon it in a barber's t,Liop. 1 have I
missed ray engagements already, and I
may as well get shaved."
So Noodles descended into a "tonsorial
parlor,'" and reposed his graceful person
in a reclining chair, while the colored
man in attendance tucked him in with a
sheet fastened about his neck and a few
napkins, lie had taken care to leave
tho umbrella, as he entered, in the raclj
by the door, believing that, on such a
showery, day, some one would be sure to
walk off with it.
While he underwent tho scraping op?
eration he kept a stealthy eye upon
it, but it remained undisturbed. The
timo came fur the barber to say: "Bay
rum, sir?" but no one had seemed to
'care to appropriate that umbrella.
"Give mo a hair cut," said Noodles, !
The shearing consumed half an hour
more, but sfciil tho umbrella had not j
found anybody to steal it. So Noodles
slid oat of the chahv tipped tho barber
with a silver quarter, was helped on
w?th his coat, adjusted his necktie, paid
his check and had actually opened the
door half way to tro when the colored
razor manipulator touched him on the
shoulder and remarked:
"Don't fcrgit your umbrella, sab.*'
"It isn't my umbrella," replied Nood- j
les in desperation.
"Dis am do one you brought in, sah." 1
"I tell you you're mistaken; I had no
umbrella. 1 never saw that thing be?
fore. I don't want it, and I won't take j
it. To blazes with it, any way!"
"M'sicu is in error, if he will allow :
me so to say," interrupted tho cashier.
"Zat umbroll is ze one 1 .saw him come

Noodles didn't say another word. Ho
just looked remarkably savage, and,
taking the umbrella, marched out.
In the first half block he walked ho |
met three of his friends in succession,
and ho was convinced that each ono of
them took notice of the umbrella. Then
an inspiration seized him, and, stand?
ing the ill-omened articlo hastily and
unobtrusively up against an iron rail?
ing, he strodo swiftly en, not looking
behind. Just as hp vttfis chuckling and
congratulating himself that ho had dis?

Human nature, as Shakespeare knew
so well, was the same in tho sixteenth .

came aware of Lyly's success than they
proceeded to follow in his footsteps,
and soon wo have a whole family of

of having furnished Shakespeare with

In Itself it is a romarkahlo work?re?
markable for tho ludicrous geographical

his owa reputation and laid tho om?

There remains yet one more form of
Elizabethan literature in which wo
must recognize the seeds of our modem
productions, tho picaresque or realistic
novel Tho term picaresque was in- j
vented to discribo tbose novels which
celebrated tho ups and downs of tho '
professional adventurer; it signified a J
book whose pages reeked with the odors
of tho camp, tho inn and tho highway.
It originated In Spain where tho novels
"Lazirillodo Tonnes" and "Guzman do
Alfaracho" represented a certain de- ]
cidedly realistic phase, of literaturo j
which ha i to bo classified. In England |
the earliest writer to work this vein of
essentially popular romance was
Thomas Nash, a contemporary of Sid?
ney Nash has ever been reckoned
among tho Elizabethan poets, but tho
work which especially entitles him to
notice in this place is far from poetical,
a novel called "Tho Unfortunate
Traveller; or the Lifo of .lack Wilton."
Better tli an any thing, Nash was a fa
ruous wit. After bis death it was said
of him in a comedy written by some

Closely connected with Nash in the
history of this time is Thomas Dekker

superbly realistic He and Nash stood
together as the ancestors of Defoo

A Pennsylvania letter to the New York
Times describes an awful experience of
one Frager, a Scranton collier, who was
caught by a falling mass of coal, and
lay in his living tomb for nearly sixteen
Frager was horrified to find himself
shut in by tho great, black mass. As
the "squeeze" continued, his prison
grew smaller and smaller, and from tho
continual ominous cracking of tho coal
overhead, ho expected every moment to
be crushed to death.
By great good fortuno two drills lay
within his reach. Ho seized them and
managed to Bs them crosswise in the
corner of tho chamber directly above
him. They helped to support tbo super?
incumbent mass, and did their work
well, although Frager half expected
them to break under tho tremendous
All about him, meantime, tho great
bowlders of coal kept pressing closer
and closer. Both his feet were caught,
and, as the slow and fearful hours went
by, he felt his limbs growing numb as
the circulation of tho blood ceased
Little by littlo bo had been crowded
into a half-silting posture, and as the
sharp edges and corners of the coal
drove deeper and deeper into his flesh
ho felt as if he wero resting on spikes
In this terrible condition ho remained,
with only the faintest hope of rescue.
The crash that buried Frager alive in
this way, cut oil all communication be?
tween him and his assistant. Anthony
Lavin. Lavin was on the outside of tho
"fall," and immediately ran for help. A
gang of twelve men hastened to the
placo and at once began cutting through
the thick wall that separated them from
the poor man's narrow prison.
The chance of eis being found alive
grew all the time less and less, but the
brave fellows kept at the work without
flinching, though their own lives wero
every moment in danger.
As they mado their way through the
wall itbecamo necessary to proceed with
greater and greater caution, precious as
tho moments-were, lest they should un?
wittingly start a bowlder that would
crush I? rager in its fall.
At last, however, tho wall was pierced,
and the buried man. still alive and able
to speak, though terribly bruised, and
nearly suffocated with foul gases and
coal dust, was taken out and hastily re?
moved to tho mouth of the mine.
Rough men wept for joy, and Frager's

inevitably wrong and right ways of rid?
ing. To thi ? end it may bo well to ex?
plain some! ii;:.-,- of the system of teach?
ing followed at the riding academics.
Tbe firsttbing a novice is taught is
to mount,which wo will dismiss in a
few words, as the process must be fa?
miliar to most readers. She stands on
the ground, or on a stage; with her
right hand she clasps tho pommel; her
left foot she places in tho left hand of
her escort or teacher, whose right arm
is placed about her waist, or under her
left arm. She rests on her right foot.
At one, two, she rises on the ball of her
foot, at thfi e (fives a spring which, if
it is successful, lands her in tho saddle.
In the saddle the reins aro nut into
both of her hands, and her horse, which
has only a snaffle, is led with a leading
strap around the ring until tho rider ac?
quires her seat. She must, sit lightly
and erect, shoulders square, and leaning
neither too far front or back. The rea?
sons aro obvious. If she rides too far
forward, an unlucky stnrablo would
send her on her head; if sbo leans too
far back, she loses something in con?
trol of her horse, Both elegance and
perfect balance demand an upright seat
Her right leg is thrown around tho
upright pommel, and by liyhtlv pressing
tho horse beneath tho pommel assists
her seat. The left log falls at an an^le,
tho knee projecting, and tho ball of tho
left foot presses the stirrups. The
length of the stirrup depends on her
length of log, and Is adjustpd as seems
easiest, which is, of course, best for tho
rider. The length of tho bridle rein,
the first lesson.
which should bo neither too long nor
too short, is regulated alSo by the
length of arm.
Having trained her seat, sbo is now
I given a full bridle, that is to say, a
curb is added to tho snaffle, and sbo
! holds the reins in ono hand. The other
is occupied by her whip?usually a ero33
in which there is no actual scrvico be
| yond that of giving of her hand some?
thing .o do. She is now taught to guide.
Horses in riding schools aro trained to
guido by the nock, but as they arc used
by so many different riders they are, in
fact, more difficult to guide than the
horse of which tho rider is tho fortunate
possessor. To the horso well trained
tho slightest pressure on tho reins is
sufficient, and he is spared that torture
of tho mouth which careless riders aro
apt to inflict, keeping their horses
thereby restive and irritated.
To ride a trotting horso satisfactorily
to ono's self training is necessary. As
in swimming, thoro is a knack which, ,
once caught, makes easy an otherwise
uncomfortable performance. This
knack is embodied in keeping the riso j
in the saddle in perfect unison with tho
horse's forward movement. And it is
clone by pressing the ball of tbo foot
against the stirrups, which gives tho
required riso, and at tho same time
lightly pressing the pommel leg against
the horso to keep the body straight.
Tho amount of rise-is adjusted by the
curved pommol which restrains by its
curve the stirrup log beyond a certain j
The conventional habit Is derived

front around to tho right side in the
back just clears the ground when tho

distance, which includes tho part ovor
tho pommel knee, the skirt is longer.
Tho guide to the length is tho rider
seated, when the skirt should make a
straight line across the horse's body. In
tht old-fasbloned skirt this line Is diago?
nal. When walking this surplus length
is looped up. The skirt has no gathers.
It is fitted across tho back just as are a

Underneath the habit aro worn trous?

ity for the statement that tights warn

trousors. Tho season has introduced
novelties in riding bodies. Tho latest
are jacket-shaped, and aro cut away fe

est danger that the necessity will arise.
About a dozen years ago tho samo agita?
tion was agitated and with tho usual
result. Natureis protty apt to look after
her own. and tho fact that women in
civilized life ride ss they do and persist
in It in the teeth of all the dreadful
consequences predicted by the reform?
ers, is pretty suro proof that it is not
done without a reason. That women in
South America and Japan rido cross sad?
dle is of but little consequence, they do
so unconsciously; the girl in tho pa?k is
self-conscious and that makes ail tho
difference in the world.
As to the physical consequences one
may bo pardonod for drawing somewhat
on personal experiences. At eight years
old 1 was taught to ride as ducks are
taught to swim, by being placed on a
Canadian pony. From that time until
bixteen 1 rode usually twice a day, and
there were few methods of riding, ex?
cept standing on bare back, of which I
have not had some experience. A3 a
child 1 frequently rodo twenty milc3 a
day, and there aro those who will re'
member, witlrout any loss of activity
afterward, and without ever having suf?
fered from any of the ills threatened
thoso who ride as women do.
Here it is not uncommon for parties
to ride to tho athletic grounds at Travia
Island, eighteen miles distant, lunch
and return within four hours without
fatigu?. The experienced rider knows
how, by chango of gait, to jivo rest to
both Irorsolf and horse. After a long
level trot tho brealc into a canter is as
resting as would be absofoito repose.
"Moreover, the aesthetic sense of Amer?
ican women is sufficiently alert to keep
them from riding eross-saddlo. The
English costume designed for these
daring equestriennes oonsists in trous?
ers and a species of nowmarket When
mounted tho coat divides and covers
each leg. To keep In placo aro straps
around tho leg. On dismounting the
coat is buttoned down the front, and a
flap conceals tho division in tho back.
Tho clfect is not attractive. Tho ac?
cordion divided skirt is too frivolous
and no moro tempting to the oye. Tbo
only really pretty sort of cross-saddle
costume is one designed for hunting,
with boots; tights and a jaunty coat, a
costume which looks as it if might
havo been borrowed from tho Grand
Duchess at the Casino.

Wo drew tho boat up on the sandy

as ono could see was boiling and foam?

wo stood thcro looking into the raging

While the rest of us started back aft
