SATURDAY ...August 9, 1873
Bathing at Long Branch
A correspondent of New York Gra
phic has this:
"Woman can invest even a red flan
nel bathing dress with some degree of
picturesqueness, but man is totally
and uncompromisingly hideous from
the moment he emerges, sheepish
and awkward from the bathing
house door, until he recrosses the
threshold, sand-encrusted, and with
seaweed sticking out from his con
gealed toe. The West-enders em
brace Father Neptune with most re
freshing decorum. They wear oil
silk caps surrounded by the usual
straw monstrosities, and stockings.
Yes, stockings; and they are as much
prettier than bare feet notwithstan
ding the "almond pink nails" of
which Private Miles hath sung as,
well, as false teeth are than real ones.
Seriously, though, imagine a reine
du ballet without her silk stockings.
The "West-end belles, then come
down to bathe in blue and white
dresses,, coquettishly made and fitting
to perfection, of a decorous length,'
and beneath, a bewitching pair of
striped stockings. They possessed
the- artistic perception necessary to
enable them to dispense with (hor
rors!) a pair of sandals, and cape
stepping on the sands looking like
nymphs.of Diana, buskined for the
chase. It was, doubtless, very rude
in the. waves to buffet such trim little
models of beauty and decorum, and
knock off their sunhats and beat their
hah-across their eyes and fill their
ears with, bits of floating straw; but
they did it,, and seemed to like it, t.
But. for a genuine Neptunian frolic,
the French and German denizens of
Iauch' s- bear off the palm . Thi s tem
ple of souffiees and ice-cream, than
which no hotel on Ocean avenue can
furnish a more enticing luncheon,
turns out every day scores of dark
eyed olive-skinned demoi-selles for
a bath royal with the waves. These
Gallic water-nymphs are so pretty in
their short-sleeved waists and Zouave
pants, ending at the knee with a co
quettish ruffle, and those indiscrib
able little caps which are at once so
veritably French that one wonders
why Yankee ingenuity has never in
vented some way in which a woman
may look as enchanting in the salt
water as she does in the ball-room or
an opera box. The Flora McFlim
seys, who sit under umbrellas on the
sands, their hands encased in thick,
undressed kids, and heads swathed
in two yards or more of grenadine
veil, gaze with feeble astonishment
at the twinkling heels of these jolly
French girls disappearing behind
some huge breaker. The influence
of nature and health and beauty are
so lost on them that one wonders why
they didn't stay at Madison square,
hoist an umbrella in the bath-room,
turn on the water in the tub, and
gaze across its noble expanse in lieu
of the dancing, blue Atlantic
After all,, the children have a bet
ter time-at Long Branch than any
body else They tumble up and down
the bluff, play horse-cars on the shore
bury their toes in the sand,, and
catch fiddler-crabs- Sometimes tSe
crabs revenge themselves. "When
Moster Bobby's nurse, who with the
placid indifference to his welfare that
characterizes her kind, has left him
to kill time on scientific principles of
his own, hears a howl of anguish em
anating from the plaited bosom of
his white pique, she knows what that
howl portends,, and rushes to- extri
cate the toe of her precious (Z) charge
from the grasp of a rapacious crab.
