Looking for Stolen Clothes In a Pawn Shop-Of Bowling for Women About Pants. [ipeieal Correspondence of Tea INDutwmrseT.] EW YORK, OCT 7.--TRE SCENE o~ racing excitement hba been shbfted from Gravesend to Jerome park. But what is teehnieally knownm as "the racing public" is still talk ing industriously about the extraordinary season on the Long Island track. New Yorkers are again reading aees en tries in the morning papers, for the man. ager of Jerome ,park has not made up his min4 to imitate the tactics of Mr. Phil Dwyer by shutting every avenue of infor mation against the pool rooms. Yet it is diseovered now that there was a sweetness in the stolen information obtained during the Gravesend season. The week of unham - pered observation on Mr. Morris' track has not contained half the excitement furibshed by one day of deteetive-haunted Gravesend. There was a fascination about a horde of Pinkerton men, all watching for some traitors who may be communicating facts to the outside world over or under the fa mous high fence which rosetextremely high but somehow never entirely excluded the outer world. The coachman and his hat are still a source of plentiful gossip. Everybody has his theory about that coachman and the manner of his detection. This much is definite, that the "coachman" was one of the cleverest telegrkphio operators in Amer. ica; that he had a very cleverly constructed electric flash arrangement in his hat, and that this flash, emitted in the dots and dashes of the Morse system, was read through a slit in the crown by another op. erator, armed with a telescope, in a hotel tower 250 feet away. I saw the man yesterday who supplied the refleetor that was used to intensify the brilliancy of the electric flash on the hat interior, for by daylight even electric light emits a relatively mild gleam. The appar atus throughout had been managed very shrewdly by experts under the pay of the Western Union company. There is not such a clear understanding as to the manner in which this most in genious of all the means to circumvent Dwyer and get information to the pool rooms was suppressed. At the outset all the credit was given to Bob Pinkerton, whose lynx eye wee supposed to have caught the gleam of the electric light through the cut in the crown of that innocent looking coachman's hat. But it turns out that Bob Pmkerton did not see the flash, nor ,did anybody else who wasn't expected to see it, until a trusted associate of the filching combination revealed the echemelto Dwyer -for a consideration. This consideration is now stated to have been exactly $1,000. Dwyer was told that a certain system of sending information out of the grounds was in successful operation. He was asked what it was worth to be "put onto" the secret` system. Dwyer, as the story now goes. said it would be worth ten one hundred dollar bills, and he put them down. Then the informer, who was being paid much leess to help the electrical coach man, pointed out the ingenious hat, and the jig was up. It will be a long time before` racing his tory furnishes racing people and the con templative public with another period of such curious events. ColumbfiaMen Training. Columbia college is going to try and make itself famous this fall. It is going to see what can be done with the game of foot ball when brain and muscle get into a har monious partnership. The college boys have started in with their' training at Williamsbridge, in the epirit of liveliest enthusiam. It is said t at the teams now getting together are the strongest the college has turned out for years. The 'varsity eleven is in stunning shape, and the freshmen think they are polishing up a team that will make the rest of the football world very nervous. The seniors and juniors of the college will play on October 27, the sophomores and freshmen on October 29, and the final col lege championship game is set for Octo ber 31. The Pawn Shop.,Rald. This is the season of the year when the buoyant Now Yorker, returning from his summer outing, finds that }is house or his flat has been quietly visited by certain peo ple of the burglarious variety. The dis covery is the more dreadful because, being made, in all probability, several weeks after the event, there is little chance of sucoess ful tracing the thieves or the goods they have taken. I have just been talking ton womanwhose cozy fist (fiats, you have noticed, are al ways "cozy") was looted during her sum mer absence. She bewailed the lose of seven dresses, but is thanking her lucky stars that all the silver and two sealskin sacks were overlooked by the sagacious marauders. "Some people," said this woman, "would let the lost goods go. But I have heard it said that this disoosition has greatly in creased the safety and dating of New York thieves. So I have been heartily engaged in trying to And out who robbed me and and what they have done with my property. "I thought I had influence, and I went to police headquarters, but the central oflice detective who was assigned to the odse very elaborately did nothing. Meanwhile, the quiet, unoffieious ward detective, who start ed in on the case, really did something. He located three of the dresses-with my as sistanoe. Now, I always supposed that you saw most of a pawn shop from the door. But when I went in with the detective and found the upper floors packed with goods I marveled greptly. Three or four of these places were enough for me. As an experi ence the excursion was invaluable. But I know better ways of having actual amuse ment. "Then the detectives traced down a cer tain colored person of the genter psex, who was unable to say satisfactorily where she got the dresses which she had given to an orher colored person of the sane pox to Dawn. They have her locked ip now and I have already made one visit-my first-to a police court. "All this, mind you, is in deference to my theory that we are bound to hunt down the people who rob us. And, of course, I shall be glad to get possession of those dresses again without paying the pawk money which I will if there is a conviction." Bowling for Women. There has been a good deal of bowling at the summer resorts, and people are coining back to town with a new interest in this vigorous sport. But the reil novelty is that women are becoming deeply interested in a form of amusement which they have pre viously sampled with something of indiffer ent caution. Naturally, the chief characteristic of feminine bowling at this - time lies in the fact that most of the pins remain standing after the three balls have been rolled down the alley. In consideration of this tendon ay It Is a fact that at the summer alleys, as well as in the city, a considerable reduction in price is made to women who bowl to gether. 'he presumption Is that a smaller sumber of boys is required to get up the giie bli tlapt hfogbt of oli rmiteaosi , f the wear £4 telr I i .ýrl fematie auim.

More NIw York people would bowl robably if so large a proportion of the i bowling alleys were not assooiated with beer saoons. The most popular alleys in town are the elb alleys, where on ladies' day there are some olever and spirited con tests. When a wise woman bowls she wears a freel fitting glove of buckskin, or some materlal of the same general style. Telegraph and Typewriter. - I watched a telegraph operator yesterday as he clieked on a typewriter the words that I oaase over the wire. The trip-trip of the typyrltier sounded so much like the dot dash of the telegraph instrument that it seemed ourious that no confusion was coona sioned. It seemed inevitable that the two noises must sometimes lead to -a doubt in the operator's mind. But when I spoke to him about this he said: 'There is no real similarity between these sounds so far as the trained ear is coneerned. That is not the chief diffieplty in the combination. The difficulty is in spontaneously striking the right typewriter letter, in turning the lines correctly and in not making a slip that will make it impos sible for you to keep with the telegraphic key. Of course the typewriter is more rapid than the Morse system can be made, but the turning of the lines, the spacing and the hyphenating at the ending of the lines when you neglect to carry over the whole word, bring down the speed very closely to the key. You see, the telegraph operator has to make sometimes five did tinot dots or dasher for one letter, while the typewriter key makes a .letter at one stroke. The Morse dots are made by a very slight motion, however, while the typewriter stop has to have a certain firmness equivalent in expended force to several of the telegraph key motions. "This combination of typewriter and telegraph key has been in operation for some time on 'news' work, but it is only now coming into experimental work on general work. They are trying receiving and copy ing with the typewriter. This innovation advances slowly, because there are difilcul ties to overcome. You see in 'news' work a slight variation in the phraseology might not make a great difference so long as the sense is preserved. In a private telegram there must not be a hair's breadth of varia tion in any particular. "'t first there was difficulty about chang ing %he sheets on 'manifold' work, but now they have invented a 'feeding' arrangement that overcomes this difficulty and leaves the way clear for the suocess of the combina tion." The Word "Pants." I think it was Mr. Charles A. Dana who enunciated the well-known definition by which we learned that gentlemen wore "trousers" while gents wear "pants." This ought to have disposed of the word "pants" forever, but it didn't. They tried to keep the word out of our vocabulary. They tried hard. But it still sticks. "Pants" has come to stay. Of course the word is very vulgar. No body who pretends to be influenced by the canon of good form is caught saving "pants"-when he is on his good behavior. But there is a fascination in the crisp, An glo-Saxonish kind of a word that lead many prudent persons to sneak in "pants" where "trousers" is demanded. As for the profane public it has decided that it wants to say "pants" and it is going to keep it up. "Trousers" don't fit. And what do we discover in New York to day? The town is spattered with signs that are emblazoned with the words pants. You may see "Pants" in letters two feet high, The Excelsior Pants company solicits your patronage through the agency of a most gorgeous and uncompromising sign. The east side in particular is crowded with pants companies, In the street car adver tisements you are assailed by the inquiry. "Do you wear vants?" And they do not mean to thereby ask whether or not you are the "gent" of Mr. Dana's definition. Moreover, to illustrate the fearful and inconquerable democracy of language, to emphasize the popular determination not to submit to any restriction in the use of a fitting and expressive term, and to indicate a certain univeisal craving for euphony. we have the sign I saw yesterday afternoon on East Broadway: PANT BANDS WANTED. Who Are the Funny Hten ? Far be it from me to disparage those brilliant cartoonists, who have given to American caricature so commanding a po sition, but it is worth while asking, who are the men who invent the pictorial fun of the American illustrated periodicals? The inewer might be, that he is by no means always the clever mtist who signs his name to the drawing as it appears in print. Who is he, thou? The inventor of a useful phrase in a cer tain discussion on political economy would say that he is the "Forgotten Man." This world has in it a great many forgot ten men, men whose brains are helping to make the world move, but men who for one reason or another are buried out of sight. Their particular genius does not bring them into the eye of the world. Other mon,witli out precisely shining with their brilliancy, find it feasible to be the medium of placing the product of their valuable but obscure wit where it will do the most good. The Forotten Man of the funny paper, and of the funny corner in the serlous papes, is the man whose head is full of bright conceits, but who hasn't the luck to be able to draw. So le writes his droll dia logues or comments and sketches his no tion of the pictorial situation in such a manner as to suggest to the skilled artist how he thinks the drawing should be done. These sketches are sometimes funnier than anything that ever gets into the printed page, because they represent a funny man's effort to express his funniness through a medium of which he is not a master. Very often the author scrawls va rious marginal notes, and indicates by pointers and other things what he is trying to express. He finds particular difficulty, of course, when the fun of the situation he has con ceived lies in the character of the drawing, and he has to make the draughteman see what he is aiming at. These unknown funny men, who may bd among the editors of the periodical in which the picture appears, but are more likely to be among the contributors, who send in batches of "ideas" from time to time, are very useful people, and they are generally paid with the liberality that is prompted by the service of useful people. Perhaps in some other channel they are Working for glory. 1ut in the picture way they "blow in" their wit for dollars. MATT LAMAn. Copyright. AaIUremtlo amers.
