PLAYTIME IS ENDED.
Ordinary Mortals Must Now
Resume Their Routine of
Cut Lucky Lads and Lasses
Still Continue the Round
two Gowns That Are Models
to Be Studied by the
Dress Reform Propagandists
Elucidate Their Ideas at
Special Letter to the Globe.
Ni:w Yokk. Aug. 22.— For the major-
It*, of summer travelers the season is
about at an end in these last days of
August, and playtime must soon give
way to the ordinary working routine,
hut the favored few to whom
life is one long holiday and duties
are fewer than pleasures, will take
good care to keep away from the city
until the mellow Indian summer lias
drawn to a close. * and the first fall
weddings summon them home. And for
their use at Newport, Tuxedo, Lenox,
and wherever else these fashionable
colonies elect to sojourn, the
modistes are now preparing some
pretty lightweight wool costumes which
will appropriately fill in the interval be
fore the first fall novelties are due.
These gowns are but little different
except in material from those which
have been in favor since June. The plain
hell skirt witiiout drapery seems to be too
firmly established in popular favor to be
abandoned yet awhile, and the long
■waisted effect, basques with skirt at
tachment and sleeves full at the arm
hole, bid fair to retain their vogue
•until the new year at least.
In this gown of Kedfern design
all these details are noticeable. It is
made for one of the Lenox ' cottagers
for morning wear and informal recep
tions. Cream serge is the material, and
the skirt, which just rests upon the
ground, has a foot border composed
of diagonal rows of white and
gold-mixed braid, above which is
a design braided in white and gold
cords. The waist is a full blouse con
fined by a braided girdle, and the some
what full sleeves have narrow braided
cuffs. The high straight collar, braided
to match, rises from a rolled
shawl collar wbicb is trimmed
like the skirt. A soft silk tie
of light canary yellow is carelessly
knotted beneath this lower collar. This
_T 8 i^wC^l $'"*""' t x ?\l^
other model is a new Eedfern walking 'j
gown, which may be used for calling. j
It is of very light weight cloth, a I
light grayish green in color. The
back of the skirt hardly more
than touches the ground, while
the front has an odd box-pleted flounce
of bengaline, overlapping Vandykes
braided in dark green and silver." and
caught with large, silver-rimmed but
tons at the top. The basque is cut with
sharper points over a silk ruffie which
is deep enough to cover the hips, It has
braided cuffs, a high braided collar and
A' plastron, the latter set between
draped folds of the silk which meet
below the bust and conceal the fasten
ings. The hat is a Tuscan straw of
the same color as the gown and
it is trimmed with ribbon and
velvet and a large silver butterfly
which stands up like a cigarette in
front. Apropos of the white gowns
mentioned above. Can women who
have passed their first score and ten
years continue to don white gowns and
appear suitably appareled? is a ques
tion that is often mooted — un
necessarily one would think when the
answer is apparent on every side, in
their general adoption by a vast number
who are no longer in the teens or twen
ties and who have divined the art of
dressing becomingly and well. White
is no longer exclusively worn by juve
niles, though, of course, each one will
study her individual coloring and
affect the tone of white she
has discovered is most becom
ing, whether ivory, cream, blue the J
new oyster, which has a gravis)* shade
|ii its folds or pure white. She would, '
however, do well to give her preference j
to summer serges, nun's veilings and !
similar soft fabrics, avoiding white
silks. Mohairs or anything that has a'
glossy surface, unless veiled . with a
softer and duller material, such as crepe
de chine or chiffon.
NEW DRESS SYSTEMS.
Propagandists of Reform in Ap
parel Have Their Say.
ony's scholastic still
ness has been broken
by ths intrusion of
the dress question.
For some weeks past
propagandists of the
most radical school
of dress reform have
been quietly at work
there, and the Wom
en's club decided to
devote a day to the
discussion <of the
subject in its every phase. The mere
announcement of the fact by bulle
tins brought together a big crowd
ol men and women. Tho discus
sion was quite lively, for Chautauqua
had no less than four systems of dress
in full sweep among the ladies. First,
there is the regulation style, repre
sented by the old-fashioned skirt, of
which the Delsarte teacher is the ex
ponent. The second class are
the followers of . the divided skirt;
the third class consists of the
Zouave uniform young ladies, who
spend most of their time in the gym
nasium and devote five yards of broad
cloth to each limb, and the fourth class
is made up of the extreme radicals, who
wear no skirts and imitate sctresses by
wearing "tights." The interest in the
meeting was so lively that the ladies
determined to hold another session and
probe the vexed question to the bottom.
Men were to be excluded, and the meet
ing was to be very secret. Fully 1,000
ot the "faithful" crowded into the tem
ple when the doors opened.
Mrs. Frank Stuart Parker, of Chicago,
had bronght with her the latest and
most improved style of ladies' clothes
for exhibition purposes. She rapidly
changed her outer garments in full view
of her audience and showed the beauty
of the new styles of dress. She de
nounced, in turn, high heels, narrow
shues, high collars, seamless gloves
and all kinds of corsets and
garters, and told the audience that it
was a greater sin to deform and abuse
the body than it was to tell a lie. It is
absurd to say that a French dressmrker
can improve upon what God has cre
ated. The speaker recommended her
hearers to supply themselves with
photographs of the Venus di Mi'.o
and Titan's nude figure, and
study them until their beauty
was literally felt. Then came a long
discussion, and it seemed hard for many
ladies to renounce the garters, particu
larly the one honored by Edward 111.
of England. One lady said it was a
shame that women disfigured them
selves so much as to compel their hus
bands to go to see actresses in
order to behold a beautiful
form. It was simply disgraceful
to have brothers and husbauds go to a
theater to admire the female figure.
Another lady said that the reason why
so many women are ill-natured is be
caused "jhey are clothed so badly.
Women were certainly superior to men,
if the doctrine of "the survival of the
fittest" were true, for a man could not
survive in the garments that most
women wear. Altogether it was a great
day at Chautauqua.
One of the speakers on dress reform
at the Chautauqua convention, in com
menting on the changes which had taken
place in the past six centuries.remarked
that GOO years ago men wore attires al
most identical with those of women, and
that when reform began to creep in
a shortening of the skirt was
the first step toword improve
ment. Then she remarked " with
a deal of commendation as a remarkable
coincidence, that the first change advo
cated for women was a shortening of
the skirt and she put the subject for
ward with a considerable satisfaction.
The amusing part of this is that two or
three years ago. when the dress agita
tion swept with renewed vigor
over the country fashion did com
mand that women should shorten their
skirts, and for several seasons the short
dress prevailed in walking dresses, and
many ball costumes did dot drag on the
floor. Now, it is a pity that this reform
was not a virtuous change instead of a
fad, but the truth will prevail. Already
the decree has gone forth. Already street
dresses dust the pavements. Already
house dresses even for informal occa
sions lie a bit on the floor, so that the
apparent step which women anxious for
the reform of their sex fancied they had
seen made toward the desired result
was only a false promise. Indeed, the
strong-minded woman who is sincerely
anxious for the reform of her sex has a
hard lot. for it is woman herself who
always handicaps her.
If the Chautauqua dress reformers
are right in asserting that the feminine
line of beauty should be revealed from
the sloping,^shoulders to the dainty
feet, why is J*?*____"-_.s Kate Field's sug
gestion good that men should wear knee
breeches and long stockings? In waging
war on the unnecessary and shape
concealing trousers she is simply apply
ing to the distinctive apparel of one
sex the same principle that the Chau
tauquans apply to the distinctive, un
necessary and shape_.concealing dress
of the other sex. But how the kodaks
will snap Yvben-a band of reformed lads
and lasses parade Broadway for the first
time in the new limb-revealing habili
ments, the lads in knee breeches and

A Mystic Shrine Where the
Poppy of the Pipe Is En
Votaries From High Life Come
Down to Luxuriate in
Camille's Secret Divulged at
the Hour of Four in the
Paris and St. Paul Singularly
Mixed at an Opium
Camille was reading Belot's "My
Wife," which is very bad reading at the
best. The night was too hot for living
or love. I restlessly threw myself off
of the lounge on which I had been
groaning, and, looking into her blue
eyes, asked my lady:
"Did you ever 'hit the pipe?' "
Of course she had not. No woman ad
mits or confesses to her lover her secret
pleasures. Her 'positive intent is to
preserve in him his ideal conception of
her. The more she becomes to him an
actuality the less he will love her. This
is not alone feminine reasoning but the
truth. Monsieur Daudet might confirm
it if he were only living. Since he is
dead and dust read the de Maupan's
I continued my research after Camil
le's secrets. When she became volu
ble in her disclaimers of any knowl
edge of the opium vice, 1 knew that 1
must be near the truth.
"Come," I said, "take me to where
you have been and I have not.''
She moved reluctantly. Griselda was
not more loth to go forth than Camille.
Still I insisted. St Paul is so singularly
free from hidden vice that the finding
of an ulcer spot, which even the police
have not pricked. is a pleasure to a novi
tiate. We went out of the house and
came upon the heated street. It was so
stifiing'one might have thought that the
heavy-faced moon was giving forth
heat. There was no one about to
spy upon us. The hour was close
on to 4 in the morning. The night
roundsmen were leaving their beats.
Over on a store step we saw one of the
merchant police, full to the gunwales,
with 'concealed happiness.' A friendly
city official was vainly trying to get him
UDon his pedals. Camille turned her
head away in disgust. Her gesture re
minded me of how school girls Hed from
the drunken de Brissac.
We came down West Third street,
which in the early morning is like unto
a way in the City of the Dead. There is
nothing on or about it but memories of
once prosperous days, lt is given over
now to the rack of the fruit venders and
small shopkeepers." The street is so sad
and silent that the stones of the ancient
buildings seem to have voices and to
cry out against their shame. Streets,
like men and women, outlive their use
fulness. But, unlike the humans, they
cannot extinguish themselves.
We were a few doors above* the ven
erable Metropolitan hotel when Camille
stopped. She would not look me in the
ice, but put out her hand to mine and
"We go in here— if you wish."
I looked up at the number. it was
119)4, double doors, opening on to a
dirty staircase, above that darkness.
The place is oue of the old stone build
ings (and brick, too,) that forms the row
running west from the Metropolitan.
On the windows of the door entrance
the worn legend runs "Furnished rooms,
1 took the outstretched hand, and we
weut in and up to the first floor and
then along a . nasty-smelling hall until
we came to a room numbered No. 100.
No one was moving about the Place,
while the chill in the hall made it seem
like a charnel house. Camille knocked
very feebly at the door. Then 1
heard the slipping of bolts and
the creaking of hinges. Some one asked.
"Who is there?"
To which my companion replied:
"I have a card."
In the voluminous folds of her gown
she found a pocket, and out of this pro
duced a card that read like this:
: "THE ORIENTAL," :
• No. 119U YY'est Third Street, :
i Room 106. :.
■ ' ........
The showing of this appeared to have
a satisfactory effect on the party behind
the door, for it was thrown open and
we were invited to come in. Afterwards
1 learned that entrance was very difficult
unless one knew the proprietors or came
with a posted party.
When we found ourselves inside Yve
were in one large room, whose rear
windows faced the court of the Metro
politan, Boara partitions had been put
up so as to secure some privacy
for the different patrons. These
partitions formed little bunk rooms,
which were curtained. Inside the
bunks were mattresses, new and
clean, and covered with linen
that was spotless. Everything that
needed paint was fresh with it. The
furnishings were on the tasteful order,
showing that some money had been
spent on them. Everything was in "ap
ple-pie" order, strange contrast to
"Jumbo's" old den, once so notorious
in another end of town.
While I was making these observa
tions the young man who had let us in
was conversing with Camille. For the
keeper of an opium den he was de
cidedly a surprise in appearance. He
was young: pinky checks, soft-skinned
and bright-eyed. Camille introduced
him to me as Mr. Hoe, one of the pro
prietors of the place. He was very
pleasant in his manners. Afterwards
Camille said to me of him:
"He's only a boy Yvho is hard up on
his luck and doesn't want to work. He
is from New York and his people are
dead, and I judge that he has grown
discouraged of making any headwayin
i he world except by this way."
"But who is his partner.*"
"Oh. they call his partner .limmy
Doyle, and he loks for all the world like
an Irish comedian. He has such a
funny, little round head."
The little fellow with the red cheeks
asked us if we wanted to smoke, and
Camille said we did. So a Chinaman
came in and we were shown to a bunk
and left to ourselves. The Mongolian
cooked the stuff for us, and our intoxi
Camille" was no longer ashamed that 1
knew her secret. She chattered like a
**1 have been here many afternoons,
but it is usually best to come early in
the morning, for then the danger of the
police raiding the place is less.. Still,
the little fellow told me that the ser
• geant of this beat kneYv what Yvas going
on and was not likely to make trouble,
It is the best opium resort in the city,
and now that it is becoming known will
have a good run. Why, 1 met two mar
lied ladies here yesterday and an up
town girl on Saturday. It is so cool and
nice here, and then you can have every
thing just as you want it."
"They send over to the Metropolitan
for our lunches and also for our drinks
if we care to drink. Then, too, you can
have the opium served in liquid form if
you wish it. Some prefer it that way,
but I don't, lt makes me shake all over
and lam very sick. But with the pipe
it is different. I smoked twenty pipes
the other day and felt first rate after
"Camille," I asked, "what is the law
against this sort of thing.
"Oh," she replied, "1 guess there
isn't any law against it in this state ex
cept public opinion."
. "Well," I put iv, "if auy one wishes
to they can reach this case, or any
other opium joint, through the medium
of paragraph 281 of the penal code,
which prescribes the punishment of
offenses agaiust "the peace, comfort or
decency" of the state or city. I think,
too, that paragraph 319 of the same code
would reach it.'.'
By this time Camille had fallen asleep
and 1 took the opportunity to look
around the place as well as I could. All
of the bunks were filled, many of them
with young girls of questionable char
acter. At one bunk two of these were
gaily chatting with a well known man
about-town. "1 thought the hour favor
able to engage the Chinaman -in
conversation, but his tongue was tied.
He could only assure me that every
thing was "belly good." I had a sneak
ing suspicion that I recognized in him a
lormer laundryman of mine who held;
forth on Wabasha sireet. But the,
almond eyes were not betraying that
So I hunted up the young gentleman
with rose cheeks and gently inquired of;
"You have read 'Zillah?' "
No, he had not. 1 ventured then to
quote: .'-." ■
"In 'Zillah' it is said that woman toys
with vice, but has no actual intention j
of embracing it until she has been en
ticed so far that return is impossible.
Your resort has only been open a week
or so. but do your patrons return?" '
"Invariably," he replied.
More I could not get out of him: I
went back to my bunk and roused Ca
mille. There were dark circles under
her eyes and her hands were shaking as
if she were palsied. She had never
drank that seductive article known as a
cocktail, so 1 ordered one. I could but
shudder as I watched her gulp it down
and then fall into my arms help
less. She is yet young and the
opium is strong. We went away, out
into the street. An officer passed us,
but he did not know where we had come
from. I left her at her apartments and
went to my own. I had spent an hour
in the best-equipped opium den ever
opened in St. Paul, and I still
lived. Naturally I blessed the
stars and pitied the women who
through its hidden doors are going the
dark way that lias but one end. Per
haps after all the nepenthe they thus
secure is the best for them. The law
says not, but the law has never been

ARE YOU A FLIRT?
If You Are, This May Be of Some
Somebody wrote and asked me to de
fine a flirt. It seems unnecessary when
the dictionary meaning is worded in
such terse Saxon terms. There has
been some degree of fascination tossed
about the word by a perversion of its
meaning, but it is quite time to apply it
only in its true sense, and the applica
tion is far from being a complimentary
Do you want to act a lie? Then flirt.
Do you care to lose (he modest charm
of manner which is woman's best herit
age and man's too infrequently found
attribute? Then play at love.
Do you want your future life imbit
tered by memories which will stab you
when your heart is beating with hap
piness? Then cheat some one into giv
ing you true regard for falseness.
If you would be womanly, my woman
reader, or manly, my unknown ques
tioner, give your esteem to all who de
serve it, your friendship to those who
are your true friends, and your heart's
warm, earnest love to one man or to one
woman, and let it be unsullied by the
flirtations which many count in triumph
on the lingers of both hands.
Some of the Essential Points in
Grace and Beauty.
A pretty woman must first of all have
clearly cut, regular features.
She must have full, clear eyes.
She must have a skin that is above
reproach, untouched by rouge or pow
She must have glossy hair, that has
never known the touch of bleach or
She must have a good figure, plump
enough, yet slender enough, though
never suggestive of an angle.
She must have a white, expressive
liana, preferably a small one, but not of
necessity, if it is well kept and white.
She must have small ears and a
throat that is like a marble column for
She must know how to put on her
clothes, or she loses halt her beauty.
She must fully understand what best
suits her in the way of hair dressing,
and cling closely to that.
A woman may have all these attrac
tions, and unless her own personality is
charming, unless she has tact, it dawns
on you, alter you have seen her once or
twice, that she is not a pretty woman,
but a pretty doll.
Cheap and Wholesome.
"You cau tell your readers," said a
physician the other day, "that when
they come home tired and worn from
shopping, if they be women, or from
their professions, if they be men, not to
try anything of an alcoholic nature
as a remedy for heat and fa
tigue, as liquids of that nature
will only increase after a time both
sensations. The reaction of such tonics
always comes. Take instead a glass of
chilled lemonade and drop in it a raw
egg; shake all quickly with a little
shaker and drink slowly. The feeling
which is the result of this cooling and
nutritious egg lemonade will be found
simply delightful, and will bave per
manent effect, as well .as a temporary
refreshing one. It is very palatable,
and altogether it is, in my opinion, the
prime summer drink."
MEN DON'T ADMIRE
Music and Drama.
A selfish woman.
A peevish woman.
An ill-natured woman.
A Yvoman who is continually falsify
A woman who talks disagreeably of
A woman who shows him she knows
more than he does on a certain topic.
A man may think he admires the
manly girl, but after all he loves the
"womanly woman." (

A WOMAN'S HATE.
"I hate you, I hate you!'' the maiden said.
And her eyelids drooped and her face grew
And she turned from her lover and hung her
The flush creDt up to her rich brown hair,
And she plucked to pieces a rosebud fair,
as she stole a glance at her lover there. .
And he. these men are so full of guile;
His eyes a-glistening with mirth the while.
Looked calmly on,, with a doubting smile.
'•1 hate you, I hate you !"' she said again.
And she tapped her toe on the carpet then
As if each tap were a stab at men.
Her lip was a-qnlver, her eyes in mist.
Her cheek and throat, as the sun-gods kissed,
YY'ere bathed iv the essence of amethyst.
And then her love, with a startled look.
Grew serious, quite ami his face forsook
The confident look which it erstwhile took.
And. "Oh, very well," as he rose to go;
"And if it please you to have it so,
YY hy, so it shall be, as you doubtless know."
He look one step, but a sudden turned;
Oh. much the sweetest Is bliss unearned;
And looked in the tear-wet eyes that yearned.
No word she spoke, hut her arms entwined .
Around his neck. Oh, a woman's mind
Is a puzzle to which no key you'll find.
Upon his shoulder she laid her head.
And he- kissed her cheek, which was still
"You know l hate you'" was all uhe said.

CAX THIS BE TRUE?
Gordon Cramming's Wife Alleged
to Be Unhappy.
A correspondent writing from Lon
don says that it is an open secret that
little Lady William Gordon dimming
is already reaping the whirlwind by an
impetuous, ill-assorted mind. Truth
to say, she is very unhappy,
and her letters to her in
timate friends reveal a state of
disillusionmentand regret quite pathetic
in its intensity. The baronet does not
make the most congenial or agreeable
of husbands; his temper, never good,
has deteriorated sadly, and even the
prospect of a little son and heir in
the near future, to most young
mothers a vision of delight that
compensates for all lesser unhap
piness, in her case proves only an addi
tional cause for sorrow. The heritage
of disgrace and shame which must be
one of the evil fairy's birthgifts, weighs
more with poor "Fly" Garner than all
the broad Scotch moors and the old bar
onetcy that come along with it. It is
only a new reading of the old saw—
"Marry in haste and repent at leisure."
