HANDY WITH CAMERAS.
aom.thlnK Aboat th. 1-lr Members of
th. Cwm Mabs of th. Catry-K-traoroinary
Ive ly the New York Camera Club.
Ordinary folks who don't feel a profound
concern In such matters, but know that
amateur photoirrapby ha of late taken a
stronger bold than ever on the affections
of many, would be surprised to find that of
the large number of members belonging to
the camera clubs at leant one-third are
women, and that in the good town of New
York alone there are a acors or more of
. IimIIm of leisure who know vastly more
about lenses, plates, print and processes
than old Father Dajfuerre himaelf ever did.
And they are by no means the unintelligent
wtsldern of the handy little Kodak, or do
they content their ambitions Bonis with
mere detective snap shooting, hut they
study the ac If ntiflc branches of their art
and develop tone and finish by many dif
ferent processes, prints of which a profes
sional might he proud.
In 1888 the New York Camera Inb was
organized to satisfy the growing demands
of the amateurs for a common home where
congenial souls might meet to enjoy the
.pleasures of social intercourse, and use the
well arranged photographic conveniences,
and from the very day of its inception, on
the payment of proper fees and dues, all
the privileges of the club were extended to
ladies applying for membership. They
were requested to read papers before the
clnb, submit lantern slides of their own
making with succesnf ul pictures for exhi
bitions, and now and then at the flatter
ingly urgent request of the male members
they have accepted offices of importance.
A PHOTOGRAPHIC GENII'S.
Prominent among the club'a lady mem
bers is Mrs. Richard P. lxunsherry, whose
work, in point of artistic merit and per
fection of finish, is second only tn that of
the most skillful professionals. This little
dark eyed woman, who is busy over her
social duties, has yet found the time,
through her pure love of photography, to
study and practice the bmt methods. Por
traiture In her siieeialty, and for posing
subjects she possesses a positive genius.
With men, women and children she Is
equally suereMsful, and scarcely ever does
she see a lovely baby face framed in curls,
a young friend whose features and color
ing especially seem adapted to reproduce
well on the plate, that the beloved camera
is not produced and a most arbitrary
youngster or shy girl coaxed to sit a second
before the lease's searching eye.
In her studio and laboratory photo
graphs are piled everywhere. Charming
' old ladies in white caps, dignified bishops
in their stately rolies, famous literary,
artistic and theatrical folk who are Mrs.
Lounslierry'M friends look out from group
frame and open albums, and more fre
quently than all does one Hod pictures
of the three small Ijounslierrys, taken at
every age, in all manner of quaint cos
tumes, and in every atage of the day's
duties and pleasures, from peeping out of
the morning's bath till in little white
nightgowns, like three yellow headed cher
ubs, they go the round of family kisses.
At one period in the New York Camera
club's history a discussion arose among the
members which was somewhat difficult to
solve satisfactorily for the entire club.
Many resigned to organize the American
Society of Amateur Photographers, of
which Miss Catherine Weed Barnes is a
prominent member. Though this lady
live in Albany, and her club is domiciled
in New York, her interest In its advance
ment never lags, and, in conjunction with
two clever men, she edits a handsome
monthly devoted to the interests of ama
teurs. SEVERAL CLEVER WOMEN.
Miss Barnes is a gifted musician, and at
one time was an ardent student of art, but
some years ago a camera fell into her
bands and since then all the time a ad
study to be spared from her duties was lav
ished on photography. She is. without
doubt, the cleverest lady amateur in Amer
ica. Ia the grounds of her siwcious home
In the capital city she has built a laborato
ry and studio perfectly equipped with all
the necessary apparatus Fifty lenses,
ground by famous makers, are counted
among her most precious treasures, and
me tnmo ooasts an array of painted scen
ery tnat would stock a small theatre.
One clever little woman, Mrs. Laber, of
Paterson.whose husband was a stock raiser
for the city markets, purchased a small
camera, ana all unaided, except for the
formulas given in a paiier pamphlet,
taught herself to take small but charming
photographs. Looking about to m to
what practical use the easily acquired but
vaiuaoie Knowledge could be put, she de
cided to take pictures of her husband's
blooded cattle. Eventually the same pho
tographs were passed Ix-tween the dealer
and cattle men living at a distance, and In
this manner many sales were negotiated
and satisfactorily closed.
Any woman of intelligence can master

The amount of control which may be ex
trcised over those actions which we are
accustomed to look upon as wholly invol
untary is neither appreciated nor devel
oped as it should be. There was not only
a clever stroke against an annoyance, but
a useful lesson in the means taken by a
clergyman not long since to suppress dis
turbance In his congregation.
It was during the prevalence of the In
fluenza that the Rev. Dr. Blank gave his
congregation a reminder that will not soon
be forgotten. The various forms under
which the epidemic presented itself had in
common the faculty of making people
cough in church, and the disturbance
which arose from this source set all the
sensitive nerves of the divine on edge.
One Sunday morning in particular It
seemed as if half the people in the congre
gation were coughing already, while the
others were rapidly joining in with them
from the sheer force of example.
Dr. Blank was preaching eloquently that
morning, and partly with the interest in
his subject, partly from the necessity of
raising his voice to make himself heard, he
was particularly impressive. Suddenly,
with no warning whatever, he stopped in
the very midst of a sentence and stood per
fectly silent. Surprise held the congrega
tion silent also.
It is well known to physicians that per
sons taken by surprise will stop coughing,
and during the moment for which Dr.
Blank stood regardiug his congregation
not asinglecougli was heard in the church.
The preacher held the attention of the
audience for a space which, although really
brief, under the circumstances seemed
"I paused to remind you." lie said at
length, "that coughing is more largely un
der a person's control than wo are accus
tomed to suppose."
He took up the thread of his discourse
and went on, but for the rest of that day
at least there was remarkably little fur
ther coughing in that church. Youth's
Resistance of Wood Posts to Fire.
The endurance of wooden posts when
subjected to the action of fire has been
strikingly shown in a fire in England,
which occurred in a large warehouse, and
raged with great fury for five hours. The
post was found eventually but little in
jured by the fire. It was taken out, and as
a further test was placed in the midst of a
heap of shaving, light and heavy wood,
saturated with petroleum. This was ig
nited, and burned for two hours and a
half, at the end of which the post was
withdrawn and split longitudinally with
steel wedges in order to ascertain its con
dition. The post was pitch pint and
about the most inflammable wood known
and yet, after an exposure of seven hours
to intense heat, it contained within a
quantity of perfectly uninjured and appar
ently fresh wood, probably capable of sup
porting the whole weight which the origi
nal post was designed to carry. New York
Courageous Twin Tots.
Two tiny tots twins about 6 years old,
were the cynosure of many eyes one day at
the foot of West One Hundred and Fifty
fifth street because of the wonderful
courage they displayed and the antics they
cut up while bathing with their father.
The little ones were dressed in bathing
suits made of striped ticking, and a bevy
of youutc ladies who watched them de
clared they "were too cute for anything."

and then the other would dive headlong
into water ten feet deep, neither of them
being able to swim a stroke, and their
father would catch them as they arose to
the surface, laughing and noxious for an
other plunge. They kept up theirnnticsfor
some time, to the great delight of quite a
crowd of onlookers, who applauded the
tots for their fearlessness. New York Tel

A young couple, conspicuous in the st-t

able quarter of the town and diligently
ape the ways of the English aristocracy,
were dining alone one evening when the
hnshand casually remarked, "By the way,
Honoria, have we not a child aged altout
8?" "I guess we ought to have, but I'll just
inquire," replied the lady. "John Thomas,
is there a nurse in the establishment now?"
"Yes, madam." "Then send her to me."
In a few minutes a daintily attired young
woman appeared from a distant part of the
mansion and informed the anxious mother.
"Why, certainly, you hadachild upto last

The life of a pilot is filled with delightful
uncertainties. He is like a sealed bottle
tossed on the waves of the ocean. He may
be picked up in a day, and he may lie car
ried over the sea for more than a week lie
fore some passing steamer comes to'rescuo
him." A pilot boat left New York pre
pared for a two weeks' cruise. Within ten
hours from the time she left the bay she
was back at Staten Island, all her pilots
ha1ng beau taken off by incoming steam
ers. She put to sea again and started up
the coast. One of her stations is at New
port, and she reached there eleven days
after her second start, having cruised all
over the ocean between New York nnd
Newport without having sighted a single
steamer. New York Tribune.
