New York Daily Graphic "Girls Day" at the Free Bath is characteristically illustrated by our ar tiBt, Miss Jessie Curtis, from drawing Wade at the bsth located at the foot ot West Eleventh street. This bath is six ty feet long by thirty-five in width, has sixty dressing rooms, and is liRhted in the evening by twenty glass globes. The water is over four feet deep is very clean and clear, and the scene by day or night is charmingly animated. The eood accompusneu 0J vuo iu public swimming baths ot this city is ....

If "cleauliness is next to godliness, and it is assuredly conducive to the latter at tribute, then the public bath ranks nearer the church than other institutions, and the lesson taught within iU walls by a single code of regulations are just those most easily comprehendsd and moot ii naaliri hv the uneducated classes. Among the multitudes who visit these public baths one is bound to be lieve hundreds receive proper training in their own homes; out one is aiau aa.D .u. .vnannAa elm knnw little and hear less of decency in dress and decorum in manners, and to tnem me ruiea -.... . oniioKlo bnthinir attire and a t iLl B 1 " - . Droper behavior toward each other are Simply a surprise, w. v tion, and in many cases an aggravation to be borne patiently if possible, if not, nevertheless to be borne, or a pleasure forfeited in consequence. , There are now two large free baths in operation in this city; one, as before stated, on the east side, and the olher on the west, and it is estimated that on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 000 to 20,000 women and children are -j' in Wh whiln from 12.000 to 25,000 men and boys enjoy the same privilege on eacn oi me omer uajs ui iu i.

On the "Women's Day" two polite feminine at tendants easily manage and.superintend the scores of Naiads that disport them selves in tbe "briny wave," and seldom have .occasion to reprove an individual. In the evening a more difficult class of subjects appear, frisking, diving and splashing about with an energy one would deem impossible after a hard day s labor in July. These require an occa sional "looking after," but, all things considered, are very well behaved. On the other days of the week four police men are present to preserve order among the more boisterous devoteeB of the na torial art, and little boys and big swim about in wholesome fear f those gilt buttoned and starred "lord of creation" watching them with an "eagle glance."

Among the regular habitues of the baths a magnificent blonde is noticeable; of noble figure and commandingcarriage, she, moves queen-like in all her motions amid the throng, and swims with easy, undulating grace. A dark-eyed witch of about eighteen, plays all manner of pranks underwater and above, turning somersaults, diving, floating, disappear ing and reappearing when least expected, and ia in fact as much at borne in one element as the other, being the acknowl edged best swimmer in the bath, where scores are adepts in tbe art. The Rtrikinn contrast presented be tween the grimed faces and drooping forms of the ingoing tide ana the clean, radiant faces and elastic tread of the outgoing tide of women and children, speaks volumes ia favor of the free baths. In a city compassed by noble rivers and sea air, and teeming with wealth, every inhabitant, however obsecure, snouta have the privilege of bathing in the rivers and breathing the sea air in safety. Tbe baths .should increase in number year by year to meet the needs of the hitherto "great unwashed," until that epithet is a term of the past no longer known. If the city government should borrcw one of the precepts of Moham medan religion, which makes cleanliuess obligatory, and furnish the nieans to the lower classes, we shall take a long stride in the path of reform. SCALP DANCE. How the Utea celebrate their Vic tories. Denver Times, July 13.1 About three o'clock yesterday after noon our reporter went over to the camp, situated about four miles from Denver, and about three miles from the Larimer street bridge over the Platte. Already preparations had commenced for the grand scalp glorification, one of the red skins having manufactured a drum by stretching a deer-akin over the rim of a cheese-box. Three other drums were soon manufactured; a frying pan, a tin lard can, and a brass kettle being used for the bodies of the drums. Having cov ered his face with paint, the fellow with the tin drum laid down in his tent and commenced practicing the weird music of the scalp dance. He was soon joined by others, when the scalps taken from the Sioux were brought to the front of the tent, and poles, to which they were attached, stuck in the ground, while the scalps swayed to and fro in the breeze. One by one the braves gathered around, decorated with their best trappings, covered with beads, and painted with red, yellow, green, brown and white. About an hour before sundown, and be fore many chiefs had returned from Den ver, the scalD Doles were pulled up, and the dusky warriors selected a portion of the prairie remote trom any wigwam, where they again fixed the poles about four feet from each other. Then they sat down in a line on the ground with their backs to the setting sun and their faces to the blood-stained swaving scalps, and commenced a strange chant, bent ing time upon the drums with sticks, which had for heads leaves secured to one end with pliant twigs. About a half hour they thus sat chanting, when the squaws began to collect, equally extrav agantly attired and painted. About thirty had gathered around, when tbe squaw of the brave who had killed one of the Sioux stepped in front, took one of the scalp-poles and com mencen to march in a circle in front of the musicians, adding at the same time the shrillness of her voice to make the din unearthly. One by one tbe squaws fell in behind the scalp bearer, until about a dozen were making the magic circle Then up comes another squaw and takes another pole, and starts a preces sion, moving in a reversed direction to that taken by the first. Upon the arrival of Washington, one of the chiefs, who seemed to know just how the thing should be done, three of the oldest squaws in the tribe formed a third procession, moving inside the others, and in the same direction as the outside circle. And now drops into line with the outside circle the third scalp bearer and follow ers. Korakantie, seemingly the oldest chief in the collection, advances in front of the braves who arose to their feet upon the advent of the women and proceeds to dance. A crier also ad vances to the front and commences to harangue the braves. On the open prairie, just as the sun is sinking behind the mountains, ball a hundred Indian warriors, with faces rendered savagely fierce with paint, and garments of flaming colors, are standing in a line, which sways to and fro ia time to beating of drums and the change of tone of the fiendish music of the scalp chant. In front of these the veteran gray-haired warrior of the tribe dances with straoge antics, and the stalwart form of a huge brave is bent in all con ceivable shapes, as he in loud and excited words recounts the circumstances of the capture and exhorts the men. In front of all, the magic circles of squaws move round, the scalps streaming above their heads, being beaten in the dust with re vengeful fury, or held in their teeth, when the savage grin is most intense and chant most uproarioss. Their march is of a limping nature, each procession giving way with the same leg, in strange unison to the swaying of the braves. These things, together with the weird music only known among savages, when at regular intervals the shrill voice of tbe women rises above those of the men, and occasionally the startling war whoops rings loud over all, render the scene one never to be forgotten. About filteen hundred persons roust have visited the camp and wiiu;a ll-o scalp dance, which continued for many hours, and to which Washington, in the name of the tribe, welcomed all white folks, "both braves and squaws,"- as he j expressed it. ' EVENING, AUGUST 3, 1874. FACTS AIVD FANCIES. Motto for the married Never dis-pair. The earth is dirty while the ocean is tidy. What man is mentioned before Adam? Chap. 1st. The thermometer threatens to get as high as gold. Wisconsin tolerates a town called Parkwaukee. Pyrotechnical remedy for crying in fants Uock-et. Music teachers are included among people of note. . Is "stealing a march" woise than "takirfg a walk?" A woman who tells fortunes from a tea-cup is a sauceress. A man who is perfectly natural is gen erally perfectly honest. Collectors should have easy times. Their work is always dun. Miss Lotta has purchased a corner lot in San Francisco for $0000. Methodism is on the increase in Eng land to the extent of 2000 yearly. Woman preachers for women; men preachers for men. No more pastoral visits. A young Keokuk lady set her pa's house on fire because he wouldn't pay her dry goods bill. Who is the laziest man? The furni ture dealer he keeps chairs and lounges about all the time. It is well enough for a small boy to wear striped or barber pole stoakings, because be is a little shaver. The man who went to sleep on the railroad track found his rest was a good deal broken and his leg too. A missionary reports the dying words of a cannibal as having been: "Speak of me as one who loved his fellow-men." Some young infidel says that to put your arm around a girl's waist, when she wants you to, is a heap better than reli gion " I wouldu't have left, but the people kinder egged me on," said a man who was asked why be quit his Kansas home in a hurry.' The strongest propensity in woman's nature, says a cynical editor, is a desire to know what is going on, and the next to manage the job. A singular difference Call a girl a young witch and she is pleased; call an elderly woman an old witch and her in dignation knows no bounds. A lecturer aptly demonstrates the theory that heat generates motion, by pointing to a boy who . accidentally sat down on a piece of lighted punk. A New York judge recently prescribed ginger ale for a female prisoner whose conduct showed that it was dangerous for her to indulge in spirituous libations. A Detroit Judge keeps the small boy i'. something like subjection by threat ening to have him pinned to tbe wall with a crowbar and held until he bleeds to death. In Iceland they have no titles not even the plain " Mr." or " Mrs." A man is simply Siguatd, or. whatever else his name is, and his wife or daughter is In gebord, That was a strictly proper remark that a young lady made recently whilst part iug from her lover in her father's pres ence, when she said to the loved one, " Do write, and fear not." Circumstances alter cases. For in stance, when a Virginian arose in church and said: " Here's a hundred dollar bill for tbe old boss behind the pulpit," no one thought of putting him out. Young ladies subject to nervous de bility in summer ought to beware of tak ing too mach exercise. Tiitj should, as much as possible, lie quietly upon the sofa and suffer their mo'hers to fan thetn. An Illinois paper puts it in this man ner: " Mr. , who has been in retire ment for a few weeks, after marrying and burying three sisters, came np smilingly to the altar again yesterday, having begun on a new family." New York gamins steal the bats off the heads of the passengers riding in tbe horse cars. They puttbeir hand through the open window, seize a hat, and be fore the car can be 6topped, have disap peared round sorce convenient corner. Mount Vesuvius is to have a railroad to the top costing $1,000,000. The up per station will be guarded by a pent house, bo as to protect it in case of erup tion, and the line is to be constructed in such a way that the utmost danger to be apprehended is the loss of a few hun dred feet of rails. A letter from the camp of the Japan ese expedition Against Formosa says: There are two American officers here, CommodoM Cassell and Colonel Was son. Such, at least, is the rank they bear while serving the Japanese. Tbey seem to have had hitherto, in an unoffi cial way, the general direction of the ex pedition. Perkins, of the Cincinnati Times, wants Vasmar put in the next regatta, because Vassar reasons that all fowls should be male ones. Perkins, in his passionate moods, is a bold, bad man. As for us, so pure is our regard for the Vassar girls that we pray there may j never be an o'er-weening puss among them. Let them rudder excel as they are. One of the Athol (Mass.) school ma'ams, says the local paper, adopts a novel mode of punishment. Offenders of either aex, and all ages, are compell ed to lie down flat on the floor, face downward, with. arms stretched out at right angles to the body. The victims are not allowed to glance sideways, even for a moment, and "nosing'' the floor forms their only occupation, And this school is one of the best managed in the whole town, it adds. NO. 134 A ooeer 1.1 HI Yankee Wtnu la the ParlaUallerlea. Parii letter from Lucy Hooper in the Phila delphia Press. I The funniest person I have seen for a long time was a chubby little old maid from Connecticut, who, hearing me speak English, introduced herself to me at tbe salon a few days ago. She had come over to Europe all alone, she told me, and what she came for was a mar vel to me, for a more ignorant little per sonage it has seldom been my lot to en counter, and whatever induced her to come so far to see a country of which she had heard so little was a perfect riddle. She knew nothing of history, had never ever, heard of such a place as Versailles,- and as to the pictures, her delight at finding somebody who would tell her what they were all about was extreme. But when I attempted to ex plain their subjects to her I found the task oue of considerable difficulty, for she knew nothing of tbe subjects themselves. She never had " heard tell" of such a woman as Cleopatra, the mythological subjects puzzled her dreadfully, the historical ones-were no better, and only the scriptural ones seemed to awaken some familiar idea in her mind. At last we came to Ber trand's lovely picture of Romeo and Juliet. "Are tbey dead, or are they asleep, and who are they?" she asked, all in a breath. 1 informed her that the fiicture represented Komeo and Juliet, ying dead before tbe gate of Juliet's tomb. "Ah h hl" she ejaculated, back ing eff to take a better view ot the fig ures. Then, after a long scrutiny, she turned to me again: "French people, weren't they?" she asked. I could bear no more. 1 fled precipitately in the op posite direction, and astonished tbe sober guardian of the Agricultural Depart ment by indulging in wild shrieks ot laughter before a huge drafting of a Grecian temple. SPECIAL NOTICE. Many who are suffering from the effects of the warm weather and are debilitated, are ad vised by physician! to take moderate amounts of whisky two er three times a day. In a lit tle while those who adopt this adviee fre quently increase the number of "drinks,' and in time become confirmed inebriates. A beverage'.which will not create thirst for intox icating liquors, and which is intended especi ally for the benefit of debilitated persons, whether at home or abroad, is Dr. Schenck'i Sea Weed Tonic. Containing the juices of many medicinal herbs, this preparation does not create an appetite for the intoxicating cup. The nourishing and the life-supporting properties of many valuable natural produc tions oontained in it and well known to medi cal men have a most strenfrthening iniluenoe. A single battle of the Tonio will demonstrate its valuable qualities. For debility arising from sickness, over exertion or from any cause whatever, a wine-glassful of Sea Weed Tonio taken after meals will strengthen the stemach and create an appetite for wholesome food. To all who are about leaving their homes, we desire to say that the excellent effect! of Dr. Schenck's seasonable remedies, Sea Weed Tonio, and Mandrake Pills, are particularly evident when taken by those wha are injuri ously affected bv a change of water and diet. Nrt niTHin hmilil leave home without takinff a supply of these safeguards along. For sale DJ ail UrUgglBl. ouu-lrnw SHIRTS.
