Bin, NYE IN THE SURF.
HE HAS HIS PICTURE TAKEN IN A
BATHING SUIT AND A SMILE.
Sir George Pullman's Thinks on the
Bright and Shiny Put Coney Island
and Other Fashionable Watery Places.
Who Knows or Van Pelter?
Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
Coney Island this season serins to lie a
good deal improved as to the character
of its natrons. I was told that many of
the tougher class had gone to Tuxedo
and thus greatly increased the haut toij
of the West End. I had quite a little
talk with Mr. Silas Drooler, the artist
and tintype impressionist of the West
End, early in the week regarding this
change for the better. He also says
BY THE SAD SKA WAVKS.
that many of the canaille of Coney
Wand have gone to Ocean Grove for
the summer. Mr. Drooler took a tin
type of me in hathing costume while I
waited; I give it hero with the aid of
Mr. McDougall. who has so kindly
volunteered In-fore this at times to set
me right liefore tho public. Very few
people look real well in a bathing cos
tume, it seems to me, and this picture
would indicate that I am no exception.
Bathing in a hired chemiloon with red
braid on it does not give me that gentle
sense of thorough ablution that I felt
when in childhood I defied the police
and, clothed in nothing but conscious rec
titude and a little bag of assafetida
which I wore around my neck to keep
off the prairio mange and other plagues
incident to a thorough education, I
plunged like a long, buff streak into the
Iwwom of the mill pond.
"Oh, them was glorious days," as Sir
George Pullman says in his Night
Thoughts. 'lTow lean and tieager is the
salary we get today compared with the
joy that came with freedom and health
and fried inuwh and gentle sleep." I was
speaking to Sir George about it the other
day, a ad as he charged up a colored
porter with the loss of a towel on his hist
trip he heaved a sigh, and looked out
at window as who should say: "Ah,
what recompense have wealth and posi
tion for the unalloyed joys of childhood,
and how gladly today as I sit in the
midst of my Oriental splendor and costly
magnificence a titled foreigner with a
ghttering order on my breast, but chaos
in my soul, and thoughtfully run my
fingers through my choice bnt changing
chin whiskers, would I give it all, wealth,
fame, title and position, for one brief,
balmy, breezy day gathered from the
mellow haze of the long ago, when I
stood full knee deep in the lukewarm
pool near my suburban home in the quiet
dell and allowed the yielding, soothing
mud to squirt up letween my dimpled
The West End is not overrun by wealth
and style or russet harnesses or clanging
carriage chains, but it has an atmos
phere of light melody and freedom from
restraint which is real nice, I think. I
won a cane there during the week by
throwing rings at it. It was not an in
tellectual cano, but cheap, and with a
very small development about the head.
The more I go to Coney Island and watch
the ways of West Enders and cane ven
ders tho more I notice that tho gold
headed canes are so wide across the top
that the rings will not bestride them.
The cano I got has a nice red typewriter
head on it, made of celluloid, and the
stick itself is of pnre hide bound Wee
hawken malagga. It only cost me eight
cents, bnt the canes I bought and did not
get cost me $2.85.
Pop corn this year is flavored with
everything as neatly as soda wafer and
is less gummy, as a young lady from
Vassar said to me on tho boat as I was
holding her hand for her a moment while
she was listening to some boat music.
Speaking of Imat mnsic in New York
bay this season, I think I notice a slight
improvement in that regard, several of
the bands having leen shot by maddened
passengers and their places not yet sup
plied by others. One entire loat band
was bitten by a mad dog in June; also
in the calf of the leg, and no one has
been raised up to take its place as I write.
Much good may be dono t times, I
think, by well directed hydrophobia. A
colored quartet who thought they sang
on board tho excursion boat which last
year encircled Staten Island daily now
imagine that they are singing at South
Beach. For the privilege of wauling on
that trip hist year these men had to
pay the boat a small snm. Toward
autumn their wives raised it by lanndry
efforts. Nothing was paid in by passen
gers except once. , An ill guided man
from Poughkeepsio who was deaf and also
absent minded gave them five cents m
t!ie lhlth of July, but ho was observed by
another passenger and the next day the
body of the Ponghkeepsie man was found
far ont to sea with an airtight stove tied
around his neck.
These colored gentlemen are dependent
solely on their voices and their wives for
support. If they were not permitted to
obtain their livelihoods by singing they
would have to work. I do npt ditdike
these musicians, bnt their songs, devoid
of anaesthetics, will kill burdocks by the
roadsido. I like good coon music and
will walk qnite a long distance to hear
it, bnt when it is so Tank that the rest
less oysters turn over in their little oys
ter IkhIh and moan as the lxiat goes over
them I think it is time to call a halt.
Many able prophets said that this year
would see a great falling off in the at
tendance at Coney Island, but I do not
notice it. It was said that other new
resorts would cut into Coney Island
even as the enraged and outraged surf
had cut iuto Briglon Beach; but it is
not apparent. New York needs all the
breathing holes there are, and though
yon go to one and think that the multi
tude cannot be duplicated yon find that
it can over and over again at hundreds
of other places, seaward and inland.
Good food can Iks had at Coney Island
at a moderate price, many articles com
paring favorably as to quality and tariff
with those in the city. Devilish crabs
and lionized potatoes especially are to
le had in great profusion and at reason
able rates to all.
Mr. Anton Seidl is holding his recitals
at Brighton Beach, and amidst the roar
of the surf the sweet music of the
qrpheclide and germicidemaybe heard.
On the day I attended Mr. Seidl was In
real good form. He does not play him
self, bnt merely does the ormpnental
beckoning, and giyes the pleng his
general approval as it goes along.
The programme opened with an over
ture, which is "frequently the casu at
such times, and was followed by a suite
of dances by BrulL It was from the
Ballet La Champagne, and one could
almost imagine that he saw before him
the graceful, lithe limbed and giddy
skippers of the leg-itimate drama. Then
came some soft, easy going waltzes by
Gounod, Saint-Saens and other able
composers. After that Mr. Seidl intro
duced a Hungarian rhapsody by the
eminent but slightly lecherous Liszt.
It was No. 12 of his rhapsodies, and
Mr. Seidl kept good time to it with his
little parasol handle. When the mnsic
was completed the applause of the audi
ence mingled with that of the roaring
billows outside, and then some more
pieces were played with great success,
closing with a selection by Nessler,
called the "Trumpeter of Skowhegan,"
if I am not grossly mistaken. The opera
from which it was taken from, as the
tautologists have it, was laid on the
Rhine, where it was afterward secured
and utilized by Mr. Nessler. Mr. Seif
fert played the trumpet ,solo in this
piece, and was recalled at its close by
red message, he being somewhere up to
ward the iron pier in order to give his
music the right distance.
Mr. Seidl nss only the Chickering
piano at his performances. Ho uses n
by standing it in the pit with a large
monogram tarpaulin over it, learing the
name in tall, gill letters. Thon at the
close of the season Mr. Chickering throws
off this horse blanket or sweater together
with half the price aud lets Mr. Seidl
have the piano.
He also nses the Mason & Hamlin or
gan in a similar way.
I lectured once in a large city for the
benefit of the watermelon sufferers of
Georgia, and on tho programmes I found
that I "only used the Chickering, erect,
overstrung piano" at all my entertain
ments. Somebody did well out of that,
but I was not in it, to use a truism from

Mr. Informal Williams, of Ninth av

this season and along tho ocean drive
many new faces are seen. I frequently
save up enough during tho winter to
stop over at Long Branch between boats
by being economical.
I like to visit the Branch each sum-

there and wonders why I cannot stay
any longer. It is not because I am prej
udiced against the Branch, but because
J I cannot afford it. Now, at South Beach

plunge madly with a glad, gurgling cry

an hour or so and then return to my ate

that I must desist or incur the displeas

I hear some complaint this summer at
the bathing places regarding lack of
proper care of the lathing houses, and
the crying need of more cleanliness.
One lady at Coney Island this snmmer,
whose home is on the east side of New
York, and whose husband made his
money by a judicious system of sanitary
plumbing and unsanitary charges for
same. toM me that her eldest danghter,
Elfrida, came home after utilizing one
of those public bath houses and her cloth
ing was just literally covered with er
mine. People can't be too careful in that
way. A correspondent writes me from
Ocean Grove to know what he shall do
about collecting a slight bill of $500
against the landlord of a boarding honse
there who rented a honse of the- writer
last snmmer for that sum. Toward the
close of the season the guests all assem
bled at the breakfast table one morning,
and while merrily chaffing each other
and such things some one asked, "Where
is Mr. Van Pelterr for that was the
gentleman's name who ran the estab
lishment. He came not till the break
fast was cold, and so several went in
search of him. They went up in the
garret, where snmmer guests had been
in the habit of hanging themselves, but
he was not there. His business had been
profitable, so they did not see why he
should suicide, unless he was leading
what is called a double life, and the two
families had got acquainted with each
However, they dragged the Atlantic
ocean carefully and got a good many
other curiosities, but did not get Mr.
Van Tetter .
It is now over a year and the corre
spondent asks me to kindly montion
through these columns that any one giv
ing him any information regarding a
heavy set and rather wheezy blonde
male, weighing upwards of 280 pounds,
with iron gray whiskers in his ears and a
decided penchant for fried chicken and
revivals, will conf era lasting favor upon
him by communicating ith said gen
tleman in my care. Alsc 'that any per
son interested who will t ike the trouble
to come down to Ocean G rove when Mr.
Van Pelter is brought back can see
some fun by staying around there for a
day or two while he and the tradespeo
ple and others renew thei r acquaintance
with Mr. Van Pelter and unravel his
works for him.
THE GERMAN VETS.
Psveoport feen Honor to Her Battle
Mearred Gneitla - Yesterday'
Davenport was dressed in its best suit
of clothes yesterday in honor of the
Sixth annual reanion of the Gorman
Veterans' Federal association of North
America, and a great many Ger
mans from this city went over
to join in the festivities, and extend
"willkommen"to the battle scarred guests.
The city was beautifully decor
ated, the red, white and black
intermingling with the red, white
and blue everywhere, while the star
ry flag of the republic floated
from every public building and
almost every business block. Many
beautifully ornamented triumphal arches
spanned the street intersections. The
city was thronged with visitors, all
day, the number of veterans present
aggregating three thousand. The at
mosphere was full of "Wacht am
Rhine" and other German airs. The
street parade was a brilliant affair.
The German veterans had for es
cort the local G. A. R. post, while
other military and several civic socie
ties participated. Davenport's splen
didly equipped paid fire department and
police patrol made a grand snowing. both
being admired in a spirit of iriendly envy
by people from this city who witnessed
the procession. There were ten bands of
music in line.
In the afternoon Mayor Fit ke delivered
an address of welcome at Sen tetzen park,
and a prize tournament followed. Ia
the evening the park was gorgeously illu
minated. The festivities continue until
Weege's military band of Chicago,
came over to this side Ibis morning, and
gave the people a taste of music such as
they are not always accustomed to.
Improvements at the Watrrwork.
The improvements which Lave been in
progress at the waterworks building for
some time under the direction of the
waterworks committee of the city council
and Supt. Murrin, are now completed and
do much credit to those wl o have had
them in charge. A new floor has been put
in. also a bath room and other conven
iences such as are needed by tie men era-
ployed there, while the entire i nterior has
been painted, tbe,wainecoatiig a brown
CDlor, the walls and ceiling delicate
shades of blue and pink, and tie balcony
rail bright green. These improvements
with those made from time to time by
Supt. Murrin, have placed "he water
works building in such a roniition that
the council and citizens cent-rally ma;
look upon it with the pride ht coming so
useful and valuable a gift as it has proy
en to the public. The city realizes that
it cannot too well manifest its appre
ciation of its waterworks building and

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an infl imed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forevor. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflam ;d condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh
