She Can Not? Successfully
Chase Them Up Her :
And Like Men She Must Ask
Somebody to Pull Them
Suspenders are becoming more and
more in evidence on the shoulders of
women. Even the stout women are
wearing them. Leaving out of consid
eration, says the New York World, the
cost of material for a very fat woman's
suspenders, it does seem to the thought
ful that they ought not to wear them.
Suppose they should become detached
from their rear fastenings, what would
happen! When, following some great
emotion, or some violent muscular ef
fort, a pair of suspenders, like a runa
way balloon, break loose from
their moorings and rise, to a point
just below any woman's shoulder
blades, it is useless for her to try to seize

them with her own hands. She can
twist and wriggle and make faces ana
thrust her tongue in her cheek and dis
tort herself into ail the shapes of a
marionette, but she cannot grasp those
suspenders. Generations of men have
tried to do it. Ever since the lirst pair
of trousers the stronger sex have pur
.pled their faces and dislocated their
shoulders in the same moc"king. useless,
oath-forcing attempt. And shall women
succeed now in a day?
So what's to be done if a woman's sus
penders break loose in the back, say at
Twenty-third streed and Broadway?
Will she fly to the haven that every
woman seeks when an accident, visible
or invisible, happens to what she wears
—will she go into a shop? It will, in
deed, be a courageous woman who will
walk into a shop with the explanation,
"Excuse me a moment, 1 want to button
my suspenders." But even if she be
brave enough to do that, to endure the
scornful smiles, to face the withering
looks of the salesladies whose suspen
ders are never unbuttoned until they so
wish, here, it she be alone, is she going
to button her suspenders?
Men have been trying to solve that
problem for lo! these many generations,
and, as they give everything they own
and a great many things they don't to
women, women might as well have the
benefit of their experience at once. The
commonest thing for a man to do in
such an emergency is to unbutton his
vest, throw his coat-tails over the back
of his head, walk up to the first man he
sees, turn his back to him and ask his
help. If be knows the other man he
says: "Old fellow, I've busted my gal
lusses. Yank 'em down, will you?" If
he does not know him, he is. ot course,
more distant — that is, in his speech,
lie may say something like this:
'"Oblige me, sir. by drawing down my
suspenders. As you see, they're
broken." And the . other fellow, who
it's ten thousand to one, wears sus
penders himself, has a fellow feeling
Now. there is, perhaps, the simplest
method and the easiest to learn. Any
woman can say: "Oblige me. sir, by
drawing down my suspenders. As you
see, they're broken." It may. be that
the man's hand will tremble a bit, * but
there will be that fellow-feeling still,
and he certainly will oblige.
If a man's suspender buttons fly off
when the rupture between his suspend
ers and his trousers comes he has a last
resort that may be stated at first as be
ing the most discomforting— to a man.
He can take off his suspenders and walk
on the heels of his trousers. But a
woman would hate to do that. That is,
she would hate to take off her suspend
ers, for, strangely enough, she wears
them for show, most -ostentatiously,
proudly, delightedly, with an air that
says plainer than words: "Be kind
enough to observe, 1 have taken an
other step toward the emancipation
of the sex." Some women, indeed,
choose the gaudiest colors for their sus
penders. If a man were to wear sus
penders as loud as theirs he would not
be able to hear himself think. For ex
ample, all Philadelphia was delighted
the other day by the sight of a red-
THE DEUCE TAKE TIIE nORP.ID THINGS!
headed girl wearing red suspenders and
a pair of red shoes. Men, on the other
hand, hide their suspenders. If they
don't wear vests a eood many of
them wear sashes to conceal the
awkward ends of the utrly- straps.
If man does not take off his broken
suspenders he makes an effort to repair
them. Human ingenuity has exhausted
itself in this direction. Men have used
twine since twine has been made and
tied . their suspenders down. But,
then again,* men have had the advan
tage of the fact that their suspenders

.were hidden. What . woman would
.walk down the street with, her suspen
ders tied to her silk dress?*- She'd pin
'em first, but pins would not hold on a
man. Instead of pinning his suspend

nails. But its; doubtful if the ex
pedient of cutting, with a jack-knife, a"
new buttonhole in a §100 gown wilt be
generally adopted by : women. What
ever they do, however, when their sus
penders rise to their shoulder blades
they will find it better than to try to
grasp -them. The woman who pursues
her suspenders up her own back will,
after assuming a number of ridiculous
postures, wind up by standing on her
head, a position repugnant to oolite so
Tere is another important point:
Women may as well come to the same
conclusion as have men, that it is use
less to try to.renair a broken pair of
suspenders when the leather in
the metal ring tears. They niav
be sure that when that leather
attached to the ring in the - back from
which the suspenders radiate gives way
it's all up with the suspenders. They
may sew that leather, they may clamp
it, lh<**y may reinforce it . with steel
chains if they like, but it won't hold
anything thereafter. That's one of the
mysteries of suspenders. Another is
that a buckle from one pair oi sup
penders was never known to tit another
pair. So it will be useless, if they wear
••real, true" suspenders, for women to
preserve their buckles except as curios.
The buckles may be graved like those
old Italian cups and dagger hilts, they
may be heavy with. gold, but they will
never fit any other suspenders than;
those with which they were bought.
The suspender manufacturers lake care
Yet another mystery of suspenders,
lately developed, is, what do a woman's
suspenders support? But, of course,'
that must remain a mystery. A very in
teresting and peculiar fact is that no
woman has been seen with her suspend
ers hanging from her waist. Walk into
a newspaper office, for example— if you
can— on one of these days when the
mercury is soaring. There sit the men,
their shirt sleeves rolled up, their
suspenders kicking around their heels.,
perspiring; there are the women, cool
and imperturbable, their suspenders
where they ought to be— that is, where
they ought to be on the men. But there
must be moments when a woman's sus
penders hang from her waist. Fancy
the graceful sweep of her arms as she
raises them, try to imagine the lovely
curves as she carefully puts them in
The first and most natural result of
the women's appropriation of this arti
cle of apparel is that some young men
are now embroidering suspenders for
their sweethearts. That is almost too
painful for contemplation. But, if they
will do it, the young men should be
very careful in their choice of mottoes
to embroider. Suppose such a weak
minded youth should embroider "I
Love You" in blue silicon his girl's sus
penders,and then the suspenders should
break after the word "Love." That
would double the young Roman's woes,
for not only would she have a pair of
broken suspenders to grapple with, but
also the question, "Whom does he love?"
Perhaps nothing could unite them— the
suspenders. Again, although nlue is

always the color of true affection, the
young man must observe his lady-love's
complexion and her habit of dress be

ery. Thus there will be many who such
symphonies in colors, as that girl in
Philadelphia with red hair, red sus
penders and red shoes.
How Actors Study.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
"Few people realize the study that
some of our actors and actresses give to
their art," said Dr. Amos T. Behrings,
of New York, recently. "I was a hos
pital surgeon during the war, and have
been frequently consulted by actors re
quired to simulate death by gunshot
wounds, sword thrusts, etc.
"Actors required to simulate death
by one of the many, poisons, or by a
particular disease, haunt the hospitals
until they have an opportunity to wit
ness what they are to portray upon the
stage. Those who do not make these
studies frequently amuse the physicians
in the audience very much.
"There is a prominent actor now star
ring in a role wherein he is supposed to
receive a gunshot wound in the head
that proves fatal 'while you wait;' yet
he walks across the stage, retains his
consciousness and converses intelli
gently until he drops back dead.
"I never saw a case of that kind in
real life. A prominent actress, who has
a habit of pressing her hand over her
heart, needs a medical guide-book, as
she does not get within eight inches of
that vital organ."
The Wrong Man Died.
A foreign contemporary revives a
characteristic anecdote of Rossini. On
the death of Meyerbeer, his nephew,
Jacques Beer, composed a funeral march
in his honor. In a moment of weakness
he asked Rossini what he thought of it.
"Not bad," replied the maestro, "but it
would be better if you had died and
Meyerbeer had written the march."

The summer girl has grown so accus

no longer a freak who can demand that

that a word .in her defense may not
come amiss. It may, indeed, be the one

long campaign before her.
For it is a campaign, and, like all
good generals, the summer girl Jays her
plans beforehand. She calls to her aid
various arts, and she devises certain

to lead the thoughts of the average man
into very tender channels. It is more
efficacious even than spring in causing'
a young man's fancy to lightly turn to
thoughts of love.
There are promoters and promoters.
Some are calculated to induce admira
tion, others to help out lagging conver
sations, others to appeal to that secret
pity which, as a near relation of love, is
always so welcome. The summer girl
knows them all, and she uses them with
In the first place, she looks to the
raiment wherewithal she shall be
clothed. Summer is the season where
variety in gowns well spices the visual
life of the masculine "strays" at the
seashore or the mountains. During the
remainder of the year her wardrobe is
limited to a monotonous, if elegant, col
lection of street, house, visiting and
evening gowns, but" 'in -the outing
months she has all these and more. •'
' Yachting, tennis, walking, . bathing,
coaching, riding and as many other cos
tumes as the pocketbook will allow, are
added to the ordinary wardrobe. They
are as different from each other as a
coach from a yacht, and they give one
girl the charms of a dozen.

against all comers.
And she not only dresses tennis, but
she plays it. She practices "dumb"
serving before her mirror all winter,
and she knows just the pose which
shows her lithe figure to its best ad
vantage. She can swine her racket to
good purpose, and she is always the
longed-for partner when when the men
suggest playing mixed doubles.
And she likes to walk. If she doesn't,
she pretends to. She wears good,sensi

and compel her to return, haggard and
worn, after the first mile. She knows !
her tiny slippers will be noticed at the

"Deuced sensible girl, that Miss

for surf-bathing at all, learns how to
swim. She can dive through a breaker
and come up as smiling and as radiant
as Aphrodite. : And if she is overtaken
by exhaustion now and then at oppor
tune moments, who can blame her?
Swimming is very hard work, and, after
all. she. is only a' girl. That is a fact
she never allows you to forget. She is
ready to be a companion to men, but
never lets them forget that she is of a
little finer clay than they are.

TWO FAST TRAINS.
A Contrast Between Recent Trials
in America and France.
In a recent impression we gave par
ticulars of certain high speed runs made
on United States railways. In a coun
try where competition is so intense
and persistent; it is. improbable that
any performance will remain unri
valed. The process of "breaking
the . record'" is dear to the souls
of our American cousins, and so we
shall not feel surprised if report after
report reaches this country of the at
tainment of exceptionally high speeds.
The latest announcement of the kind is
that a new express train has been put
on to run trom New York to Buffalo, to
be known as the Empire state express,
and claiming to be the fastest train in
The distance by the New York Cen
tral & Hudson Kiver railroad is 439.6
miles, and the schedule on time table
time is eight hours, forty minutes, the
train leaving New York at 9a. m. and
reaching Buffalo at 5:40 p. m.
The lirst stop if* made at Albany,
143 miles from New York, reached
at 11:15 a. m., or at the rate of
about fifty-two miles an hour. The train
leaves Albany. at 11:50, ' and reaches
Utica at 1:40 p. m. The distance.is 237.5
miles from New York. The run fiom
Albany is thus made at very nearly
fifty-two miles an hour. The next stop,
for live minutes, is made at Syracuse at
at 2:45 p. m., 290 miles from New York
and fifty-three from Utica, the running
time being sixty-five minutes.
Syracuse Is left at 2:50 p. m., and
Buffalo is reached in two hours aud fif
ty minutes, the distance from Syracuse
being 140 miles aud the speed 52.9 miles
per hour. As there are only two stops
of five minutes each and two of two
minutes each, the actual running
time is 500 minutes, and the av
erage speed is consequently nearly
fifty-three miles an hour. The first trip
was made on Oct. 20, and Buffalo was
reached three minutes late, but tne
train left New York more than one
minute late, and fourteen minutes were
expended -in stops made at Albany,
Utica. Syracuse and Rochester. Tiie
train consisted of one composite bag
gage and buffet car, two standard pas
senger car, a Wagner passenger car,
and a private car of one of the vice
presidents of the road.
*•' The total weight of these cars was 178
American, or very nearly 159 Euglish
tons. The engines used have, for Amer
ican locomotives, unusually large dri
vers, six feet six inches diameter. They
are of the usual .outside cylinder, four
coupled type, and of great power. The
engine and tender • weigh, in
running order, 109 American, or very
pearly ninety English tons. From
Albany to Schenectady, a distance of
seventeen miles, there is an incline
against the train, and -up this it was
helped by a bank engine, pushing'be
'.'. The fastest bit of traveling was done
hear the end of the " run, when, the
train being behind time, a speed of
seventy miles an hour was at
tained. On the - whole, this is a
very good performance, but Jit
will be seen, that ' the -running
speed is not exceptionally high, the re
duction in time between New York and
Buffalo being mainly due to continuous
running little or no time being lost in
stopping at stations.
We may now proceed to compare this
with a trip made on Oct. 10 on the
Chemin de Fer dv Nord. The train con
sisted of twelve vehicles, for
the most part saloon carriages.
It " weighed 141 • tonnes, or 139
tons, and it was drawn by a
new compound engine recently con
structed from the designs of M. dv
Bousquet, engineer-in-chief of the com
pany, by the Societe Aisacienne. The
boiler pressure is 200 pounds on the
square inch. . The grate surface, is 22
square feet, and the total heating sur
face is 1,210 square feet. There are
four cylinders, two of 13j*£ inches in
diameter. The stroke is 25 inches.
There are four coupled wheels, 7 feet
in diameter. Its total weight is about
43 tons, of which 80 tons is on the
coupled wheels. The tender weighs
about 28 tons. The total weight of en
gine and tender being about 71 tons or
nearly 20 tous less than that of
the American engines of which we
have just been speaking. According
to the programme, the train left Paris
at 3:10 p. in., and reached Calais, a dis
tance of 184 miles, at 6:53 p. m. Ada
lay was caused by a hot axle box, and
the actual running time was 8 hours
27) minutes, the actual velocity being
thus over ."i0,." miles an hour.
Orders were given to the driver not to
exceed the maximum normal rate of
sixty-eight miles an hour in running
down inclines. The gain in time was
all made by running. faster than usual
on the level and up hill. The speed
appears to have been got up very
quickly, for at second kilometer post
out of Paris the velocity was over 48
miles an hour. The first 17 miles, in
cluding rising grade, 12 miles long of 1
in 200, was traversed in 22 minutes 12
seconds, or at the rate of about 51.5 miies
The next 14 miles down 1 in 200 were
run at the rate of 03 miles an hour.
From Amiens to Calais, on a level sec
tion, the speed was 55 miles an hour.
Up a steep bank of 1 in 133 about
214 miles long the speed was
52.7 miles an hour, reduced
to 47 miles an hour at the sum
mit. Another incline a little more se
vere was approached at a velocity of 66
miles an hour, which fell to 47 miles an
hour at the top. The maximum velocity
of 67 miles an hour was only reached, so
that the limit laid down was never ex
The whole performance was admi
rable, and proves that the engine de
signed by M.Bousquet is of unusual
excellence. The ratio of the weight of
the engine and tender to the train was
about 51 per cent. In the .case of the
Ajnerican train it was 50.5 per cent,
and at the steepest incline, as we have
seen, two engines were used. '.The
facts go to confirm what' we have often

chosen to represent Milwaukee at the
United States naval academy at An
napolis, Md., by the late Congressman
William Pitt Lynde. This examination
attracted wide-spread attention, and the
rivalry between the several candidates
was considerably increased by the news
papers, which picked their favorites
and discussed their respective merits
from day to day preceding and during
the contest. This was in the spring of
1877. In June of that year, passed the
academic examination and began life as
a midshipman. Graduated in June,
