One beautiful day in July Ut I floated
along down the hoaom of the Tha men in
brown attidr. l in a canoe that had
trw-d the aunlit waters of nearly every
American rirer lf.r it came to visit
lliia quit! l.ut railier noted English

smoked an American cigar. I iid not

die a birth hark canne so that it will run
straight i-i ii. t an mdii 'r e rer. It
is an art. Punting aetoeaT w bf morn
in my line. Punting lookn m re simple.
Punting on the Thames is c..ndu tnl by
mean of a long lend a flat ittomed
The punt ist rami this pole into the bot
tom of the rirer. and by a dextrous push
sands the boat along at an even and de
lightful mit I had polsxl a raft on lh
upper MisaisMippt. broken a jam an. I been
a director .n a i j- ferry, twenty fire
emra ago, so I kn M enough of aqua
tics to punt. I ohould say. Mr. PUber
said I might punt awhile, an he tielded
hi place to me. I reto my full height,
and as I did a... lairing wj afaai to tits
oft kiss of tie clover scented afternoon,
I was r"-'Vnirei thT Americans who
were assisting; m- last summer in mak
lag fim s easy m pan, and also in bring
ing about an era of prixrity in Loudon.
Around of applanaa greet" 1 me from
along the river bank also, for 1 am al
most as wall know n abroad aa I am in
my own countrv. and in fact all sum
mer lot k- it was nip and tuck between
me and old bouillon Jay to see w hich
would get the moat prea notices.
So I boweii a Delsarte how and spat
on my hand in a languid way. An
wtber burst of applause that echoed
down past the lock and out toward
Hampton c urt swelled mv heart with
a pardonable pride aa I raised the punt
pole high in ah and socked it into tlie
brunette bueom of the uistoiical stream.
The swift and rather stick craft shot
away with its gay and w..lJ dressed bur
den, but I did not join them. I rr-mined.
The punt pole has a tendency to stick
in the clay bottom of the Thames, but I
.1 i a now this, t Itnglng to the fole.
of court I missed my connection with
the boat, and a loud plunk, followed by
a merry peal of laughter, closed the aad
aMDe. I did Ml furnish the laughter. I
supplied the plunk.
A beautiful but rather impulsive dog
belonging to Mrs Sheldon plunged in
and bared bit life. He dragged me out
on the ban bt my clothing, as he
thought, no doubt, but my clothing was
Ms ao thick as he had supposed. That
is if a dog ever aiippostw. Be) I will al
ways carry the marka of that rescue
van to my grave. Dogs are very intel
ligent aniu. .n. I at 1 1.. - gnow al
ways to a dead moral certaintv w hether
on) has his winter or ummer flan
Punting is a very healthful exercise,
but one should have a set of dry clothing
at hand, so that he may change as soon
as he gets his punting done.
But 1 started out to say that among
the face I teemed to recognize was one
that was very English, and yet I thought
1 bad seen it in America. It was the
face of a man of forty odd, I would say.
It was the face of a veTy homely woman
on the shoulders and body of a man.
The features were as plain as those of a
hippopotamus in repose, but w hen light
ed up with a smile they were as beauti
ful aa those of a pariah. The hair was
abundant and about the color of a maple
caramel that has been exposed to the
ataoents all summer. It had evidently
bean worn long, but Mai MM ut off at
the neck by means of a pinking iron and
a set of burglar s tool. His complexion
waa opaque and his teeth hung in rich
clusters .ii th.- outside of his mouth when
M smiled. He wore an Eton cap and
killed back in the canoe while a t&lented
hired man .-a three bob a day and a
shandy gaff paddled the frail bark along
the Thames and exhibited this gifted
curiosity to the w ondering crowd. The
gifted c iriMty tv a Oscar Wilde.
I KAjaiD THE n XT POLK HIGH CT r A Ik.
I met him in the territories twelve or
thirteen years ago, I think. He wore
more of u coiffure ut that time, since
then he has stuffed a sofa pillow with it.
His hair at that time clustered around
a bone's face apparently uu! he wore a
gavuinc store sombrero. It was too new
to look comfortable, as he had bought It
at Tie Siding. Oc. wore a liver colored
cravat and a lik of intense melancholy.
I gave him a large green and gold card
of mine, printed in our new job office by
a bright young artist who had fed two
or three of his most desirable finders to
our large blue job press while trying to
pack a dogder out from among its back
Mr. Wilde said Ah!" I said we have
Art SB .. I
a beautiful climate heru, and then he re
pem fd his former statement.
I said. "You can trust me. Oscar. I
will not betray you. What you say will
be aa between man and man. If you do
not want it printed and would like to
keep it in the background and finally
run for office and give us a safe, Harri
son administration, for inttance, aa free
from turmoil as a great gob of oatmeal
mush in a weary land, I will respect
He again ahed. and producing a large
silk handkerchief, the color of the coat
ing to the stomach of an habitual drunk
ard, he wiped his wide waste of nose.
Then he went in the car and fastened the
door, to indicate that tne interview
at an end.
I OATK HI MT t'K.
Since then I have always regarded
Oscar Wilde a a greatly overestimated
But art is not dead even though - ar
Wilde has had his hair cut by means of
a can opener, and now the great Delsarte
movement or cult is sweeping the coun
try like a besom of wrath. I was going
to say, but I hate to use the word beaom
at this time without consulting some au
thorities regarding its meaning.
We have a Delsarte movement on
Vinegar Hill. I had Msg felt the need
of such a movement, and so heartily
joined it. Karly association with Black -feet
and Flathead Indians, and a course
of training afterward as a farm hand,
had given me a plebeian manner in so
ciety which were sadly out of keeping
with my pregnant mind. The Delsarte
school teaches us to cultivate friendly re
lations between the mind and body : that
good breeding is not shown by an arti
ficial cultivation. Of course we have
only advanced a little in our Vinegar
Hill class, but we are getting on to the
scheme, as you muht say. We are all
enthusiasm and earnestness. We have
got some books, and we can already fall
down two flights of stairs w iih.. it injur
We are also enabled to analyze motion
and physical displacements and muscu
lar disintegration. We can also r. lax."
Likew ise "devitalize" ourselves, and al
though we 0." there are aa
yet no flies on us.
Brow ning says, youknow :

We are engaged now in the analysts of
physical motion. All motion of thetiody
or limbs is eloquent if we will pay atten
tion. Art comes to our aid and lets us
111 on the ground floor. The higher edu
cation opens up a mighty vista in this
direction, all new and untrodden. It
shown us that what we thought, lor in
stance, a court eoui bow. was, after all. m
poorly concealed insult. We see now
that it was a reluctant compliance w ith
an old custom. Instead of meaning "I
acknowledge your worth and lower my
colors to your superiority." ir means that
"I comply with the statutes in such case
made and provided, and I extematlF
bow to you while internally biting my
thumb at you. I simply low in a way
to convince bystanders that I am a gen
tleman, whether you are or not."
That is not true art. That is Elevated
Railroad etiquette a bow w ith a string
to it. The higher education is really a
refined and durable style of Christianity.
It is the kind that teaches us thing
which will not only be of use to us here,
but also aid us in entertaining an angel
What would .uie of our Elevated Rail
road gentlemen do even if only a male
angel dropped into spend the evening,
or if one of them tried to ride down with
him from Harlem to City Hall? He
would step 011 the wings of a seraph and
jab his wet umbrella into the ribs of the
heavenly host if they stood in his way.
We learn here that each organ of the
body has its significance and meaning,
when we come to analyze people and
their conduct toward us frmi day to
day. The head, we will say. is the men
tal division. If I bow the head only to
you I signify that I lower rny wisdom or
mental jag to yours. I say, externally
at least: "You know more than I do. It
may be an inferior order of knowledge,
but we will let that go. 1 bow- to you to
signify that I recognize your wonderful
ability, such as it is."
Youthen return the M M mnga
similar one. which means: "O no,
now, partner. Come off. Come off.
That is a mistake. You are mv mental
superior, and so here is your ld Ikw re
turned with thanks."
To go still farther, if 1 bow more ex
tensively, involving the entire llv or
torso as we call it, I say by tuis action:
"I am highly inferior to you mentally
and physically. Your eyes are as the
diamonds bright, but mine are dull as
lead. I therefore lower my eyes to yours
and douse my ocular Kvik to vourn.
Your hair is superior in quality and
knocks me silly as to quantity. I there
fore lower my hair to you. I also
recognize that my other features, when
compared with yours, look KM a mis
understanding in the house of rei-.-sent-atives.
I therefore make an obeisance
with my other features. My voice also
lacks the timbre and other buildta ma
terial to be found in yours, and so ( kw
my voice. My heart and all us wealth
of rich, warm affection I place at your
feet. I also bow my luggi-ii and in
ferior liver out of respect to your ai-riv
and self reliant liver. I bow mv g i,tr!n
works also, knowing how pop! lu-var
and how unreliable and prone to keep
me awake of nights. I there), re how
entire system of assimilatiti. mastica
tion, digestion, chyliticatioi. . nwnin
cation, lactitication. gastrihYati.in. bilifi
cation, pancritication. deglutition, den
tition, ossification and pbMMMM to
Those are the language of the Map and
earnent bow. If I be the MbjMl of an
irritable monarch whose srtfa) makes
head cheese every fall, sufli tent lo last
through the winter, I how mysCf still
more and become entirely prone, thereby
indicating this: "Your Mfst rfohls And
Royal Corpulency I knock unJer to
your nibs. You are my superior in re
gard to numbers, and I humiliate myself
rather than be in the soup or get my
head cut off while still in :t-sins. I
yield to thee, thou royal, ;.;.piecfic,
polygamous reptile on thy father's side,
because I haven't money enough to raka
me to America. I mot in the sand at
thy august and pocderous feet rather
than be beheaded in irder that thy mul
titudinous wife mr make head cheese
for the neighbors."
All physical action 1 have their signifi
cance if we know he w to analyze them
properly, and our Vi ieg-ar Hill Delsarte
class is gently but firmly getting there,
as Rnfus Choate usee to say.
In a short letter like this 1 cannot do
the subject justice, mt possibly at an
other time, if the puMic demands it and
keeps on clamoring t or it. I may write
more on this all engrmaing theme. How
interesting it is. fir instance, to study
the genesis of a physical movement!
We will say that you come to me
when I am very, v ry busy, and you
forget to go away, oring to a lapse 6f
memory which has a so interfered with
your recollection of the you borrowed
two years ago, and y u talk 10 me about
yourself all the Unit when I want you
to talk about me and merest me, or else
go away and let n e worn. Well, a
thought wave in my -entral oiHce goes
over to the operator an I writes out a
red message which scoots along the
main line of the spin.il coluiuu. flashes
in the eye, tells the I iceps and muscles
of the forearm to open the dxr. darts
along the sciatic nerve and tells the
muscle ami tarsal and metatarsal honej
to be 1 41 hand, or on "oot. rather, and I
then, more in sorro.' than in anger,
kick you down stairs What does this
mean? Why, it mean ,: "I consider my self
your superior. I feel above you. I
dislike yon in mime rpecta. I do this
to indicate it. Sociall.Tyou MM Ml my
equal. 1 take this stp in order toeaH
v. ur attention to it."
This is higher eduia toa '
