BARMAIDS IN LONDON
SOME VERY RESPECTABLE GIRLS
CHOOSE THIS VOCATION.
One or Them, a ricautlfnt Irish L&sa, Ex
plnlim Why Many of Them Do So They
Ar? Looking For flood Matrimonial
Catches?Titles Wanted Usually.
Under tho title "Feminine Types In
Loudou" Jesse Francis SUeppard gives
in Lo Nouvello Kevuo an ncconnt of
tho London barmaids.
"They are recruited," he says,
"among the hniirgooise as well as among
tho lower classes. Sonic of tho most in?
teresting types can be found in the bars
or public houses of tho west end, close
to the fashionable theaters. Among
them are very many perfectly respecta?
ble girls, who have chosen tho career of
11 barmaid in order to make a living
and, especially if they arc pretty, to get
a chance to catch a rich husband.
"A public house, situated at tho angle
of one of tho principal thoroughfares, is
both a gilded palace and a mine of gold.
It exercises a strango fascination upou
the poor country bumpkins who have
just enough to pay for a drink, but tho
dude coining out of a theater, the coun?
try greenhorn, the fashionable snob and
tho frequenter of tho music halls are al?
ways to bo found there. It is among
these that tho barmaids hunt for u hus?
band. If there is one class of London
society morn stupid than another, it is
that one which includes the frequenters
of the public bouse.':. With a pipe in his
mouth and a glass of beer or whisky in
front of him the young Euglishmnn, 1
dressed in fnshionablo stylo, with a
slight and elegant figure and regular
features, remains standing for morn than
an hour paying pretty little compliments
to one or several of theso ladies.
"Tho barmaid judges her customers ?
by tho cut of thoir clothes. If you want
to attract her attention, yon must pre- I
sent yourself with a silk lint and a
handsome cane in your band and n suit
cut in tho latest fashion. The high hat |
is dn rigueur. Without that there is no j
possible chanoe of success.
"It was not without difficulty that I I
managed to get an interview with ono
of these young ladies, whose intelligence
was equal to her beauty. At first I was ?
astonished nt finding so much intelli?
gence in an English girl, hut I learned
thut she was Irish, and that explained
the mystery. Her father was dead and
her mother was left without resources.
So she was determined to come to Lon- j
?Ion and look for a husband by posing
behind a har in Piccadilly.
" 'I was hardly more than three days
here,' she said with an amiable and
roguish air, 'when I understood why if.
was that so many pretty English girls '
don't get husbands. When they are ]
beautiful, they aru generally stupid, j
When they are intelligent, they are oold, |
masculine and ugly. Englishmen travel
n great deal and meet in thoir rumblings ?
through the world very many sprightly j
women, and they do not care for pretty j
girls who don't know bow to chat with I
" 'But in this mixture that comes hero
to drink and chat,1 I said, 'how do yen ,
distinguish tho men of the world from i
" 'I recogni/.o them by three things," j
she said boldly, 'by their figure, by |
their clothes and by their complexion. !
For the must part they ore tall and thin,
dressed in tho latest fashion and hnvo a '
complexion more or less bronzed. This
last trail is the surest sign.' Seeing that
I looked astonished, she added: 'Noth- ?
iug can bo inure simple. All English
gentleman, if he bus a fortune, passes
I threo-fonrths of his time hunting and
iii other open nir exercise. Tho chaps
who remain always in London have a
paler and more delicato complexion,
and, moreover, the expression of thoir
faces is quite different from that of the
'"Noticing with what attention I was
listening to her, she continued: 'Tho
gentlemen that I refer to have nothing
elegant about them except their clothes,
for their conversation lacks novelty.
How can a man who understands noth?
ing but hunting and cricket interest an
intelligent woman? The conversation
that goes on hero in tho name of wit
makes mo tired, but these gontlemcu arc
tllO easiest, of all to deceive. They aro
great big children in everything except
sport ami politics.'
"'Hut you are always engaged,' I
snid, 'and it is difficult to get an cippor- j
tnnity to chut with yon. You must nl- '
ready have hail several offers of mar- !
" 'I have been only one month here,
and 1 have already bad three. Two
were from vory rich sportsmen, but
riches alone won't do for mo. What I
am after,' she added, laughing, 'is a
title. You know, 1 must have a title.'
"At this moment tho play in one of
the neighboring theaters was over, and
tli(\ public, house was invaded by a
-e-wwd of nu n, more or less stylish. Tho
beautiful Irish girl kept herself some?
what aloof and only served customers
that had the appearance of gentlemen.
"Well, I left London. A few months
afterward, on returning there, I wanted
to sou once morn my beautiful Irish bar?
maid, She was gono. Another lady wus
in her place, and she told mo thnt Miss
(Mara had left to marry the second son
of it prominent nobleman."
Addition to Yellowstone Park.
Captain Anderson, superintendent of
the Yellowstone National park, say
that all effort is being made to secure
legislation from congress which would
add the Jackson's Holo country to tho
park. Tho area which it was proposed
to lake in is about fit) miles square an?1,
contains Jackson's lake and the Throii
Tut on mountain peaks. It is rich in
natural scenery and would, in tho opin?
ion of the captain, add materially to
the park's attractiveness. Senator Car?
ter of Montana has drafted a biil for
that purpose, which has tho indorse'
mi nt. of tho senators from Montana and
Idaho, but the Wyoming senators have
not yet been won over.?Omaha Eeo.
WIND SPLIT TREES.
now These niajr Be Saved by Aid of Bolt
In a publia park in ono of onr largo
cities a magnificent specimen of tho
white ash which had bcou long famed
for its magnificent size and fine propor?
tions was ordered taken down by tho
park superintendent because it bad been
wind shaken in some such manner as
indicated in tho sketch, and it was re?
garded as dangerous to life in that con?
dition. Tears wore actually shed by
sonic tender hearted tree lovers over the
fallen trunk. Meohuti's Monthly after
citing the foregoing has the following
to say concerning the treatment of wind
It does not seem to be generally known
that such injuries may bo assisted by a
bolt and nuts, as
shown in the
sketch. A half,
inch rod is quite
and inch nuts are
all that is need?
ed. The nuts
will becomo com?
by the t r o e
growth in a few
years, with no
bad result. By
the help of ropes
on the upper
portion of the
braue hos and
help from tho osr. WAY
wrench on tho
nuts the (deft, can be drawn together so
closely that tho wood will eventually
grow together again?that is, tho new
growth will cover the cleft, for old
wood is dead wood, and that cannot
Bauds connected by chains have been
sometimes used to provent further sepa?
ration of a cleft, but these prevent the
growth and act like girdling, tho final
result being tho death of the portion
above the hand.
A Unique Stable.
A contributor to The Couutry Gentle?
man gives this illustrated doscriptiou of
an Ohio stable as an example of making
good use of common, cheap materials nt
hand in producing harmonious results:
The log first story is 1(1 by in in clear.
The upper story projects 1s inches on
??ach side and :i foot at tho front, giving
space for stairway outside. The upper
AN i IIIIO t on STAHbK.
story is shingled and stained light,
brown; roof, mossy green. There is a
roomy haymow ami bran bin above, tho
bran being drawn out of shoot below by
post shown in sketch. It is "daubed''
inside with lime mortar, ami makes nil
? scoodingly comfortable, stable for two
horses, or three sometimes.
The curve in roof is given by having
main rafters end at plate, and short raft?
ers for eaves' projection are then nailed
on at less angle. A piece of I by 4 across
the splice holds all solid, and by cutting
off the angle helps round out tho curve,
which, after sheeting and shingles are
on, is as regular as could bo desired.
Hoof is half pitch; eaves and gables
project 514 inches. Thocosl is about ?ioi>.
No carpenter was allowed on tho ground.
Logs are not plentiful everywhere.
These wero some from which tho butts
had been sold and were only valuable
for firewood. Hark is on and creepers
planted round, li stands in the < tlge of
Muriate ..! rotasb.
It bad been observed thai crops grown
t n the experimental pints at the xuassa
chusetts station which bad received ap?
plications of ninriato of potash for a
numhor of years in succession wero un?
healthy in appearance, and it was bus
pected that this condition was due ma
loss of limo from the soil, five hundred
to (100 pounds per acre of lime "was ap?
plied broadcast early in die spring and
subsequently plowed under before pre?
paring the soil for immuring and seed?
ing. The succeeding crops of oats looked
healthy from tho beginning to tho cud
of t ho season.
The conclusion is reached that a lib?
eral use of muriate of potash should be
accompanied by periodical applications
of lime, and that it is safer to use this
salt on a deep soil with a permeable
subsoil than upon a shallow soil with
compact subsoil, since in the latter case
harmful chlorides are likely t<> accumu?
late near the surface to the injury of the
roots of the. plants.
