The yachting girl may keep In stays,
The hunting maid havo killing ways,
The golf girl play for tho long green,
Tho bathing miss by son be soon,
Tho dancing mold float like n dove.
But the tennis girl is tho glH I "love/
Right in Training.
"I'll climb the highest peaks," she said,
??With alpenstock In hand;
I'll leap the darkest gorges, too,
And scale tho summits grand. ?
Quoth he, "But have you trained for such
A strenuous summer font7" .
"Cortes," sttlfl she, "I've lived four years
On Forty-second Street!"
Oh, the Difference.
Hatnfripck most Inviting,
Mtidgo so sleepy, tool
Bit ot Frenchy writing,
Love note?, cntrc nous,
O, for this sweet hour,
Swinging 'noath tho trees!
Fragrant ns a flower,
Charming as you please.
Sudden call to lunch. Oh!
Sudden writhing* strange,!
Gown all in u hunch-oh,
Bless mo, what a change!
Temper tip, hnlr snarling,

Like love, a cinch to fall In,
But out again, yo godsl
Spice of Life.
In courting this Is over true,
For nn une but ft drummer
Would have the nerve to shin up to
Tho girl he loved last summer.
Soclc.lv, in so far as Richmond Is con?
cerned, Is out of town. Tho midsummer
days havo brought arousrl the usual
exodus nnd Franklin nnd Graco Streets
begin to look somewhat deserted.
Tho stnv-at-homn contingent, arranged
in comfortable whlto frocks, is seen on
tho piazza In the evening, out of door
living after sundown being once again In
Street car parties, with n promenade
on the board-walk nt the Reservoir and'a
peep into tho gay' lllllo Cnslno there, tiro
popular forina of dlversion greatly en?
joyed by the young people.
Llfo Is very gay Indeed nt the Vir?
ginia seaside resorts, Virginia and Buck?
roe Beach. Ocean View, Wllloughby
Beach, Cape Henry and Old Point all
having their full quota ot guests. In the
mountains, the eeason haB fully opened

Old Sweet Springs, tho Virginia Hot
Springs, the Warm, the Rockbridge Alum,
tho Cold Sulphur, the Alleghany, the
Blue Ridge, the Brandon, the Jefferson
Park and other equally well liked ro
sorts. * ? ,
Golf links and tennis courts aro dotted
over with pretty girls, and their beaux,
.who are Indulging In pastime, and flirta?
tion with equal dexterity. Mountain
walks and drives are alive with gay
laughter and with the presence ot spirit?
ed equestriennes and their escorts. In
the evening the rhythmic sound of the
walks and the stacato notes of ihe contra
dance keep time, with the graceful tap?
ping of the dancers' feet, amid the bril?
liant lights of the ball-room.
For the tide of midsummer life is nt Its
flood and the hearts of twentieth cen?
tury maidens and men respond to its
Norfolk and the Beach.
Social life in Norfolk and its vicinity

A rnco of slnves! Ho sols, and his last beam
Falls on ft sjavo!?not such ns, swept along'
By the full tide of power, the conqueror loads
To crimson glory- and undying fame;
But base, Ignoble slaves?slaves to ft horde
Of potty tyrants, feudal despots, lords,

Strong In some hundred spearmen?only great
In that strange spell, a. name! Each hour, dark fraud,
Or open rapine, or protected murder,
Cries out against thorn. But this very day,
An honest man, my neighbor?tho.ro ho stands?
Was struck?struck like ft dog?by ono who wore
The badge of Urslnl! because, forsooth,
He tossed not high his ready cnp in air,
Nor lifted up his voica In servile ahotita,
At Sight of that great ruffian! Bo.we men,
And suffer, such dishonor? Men and wash not
The stains away in blood? Such shames are common,
1 have known deeper wrongsi I that speak to ye,
1 had. a brother once, u gracious boy,
Full of nil gentleness, of calmest hope,
Of sweet and quiet joy, there was the look
Of heaven upon his face, which limners give
To tho beloved disciple. How I loved
That gracious boy! Younger by nfteen years,
Brother at once and son! He left my sido, .
A summer bloom on his fair cheeks, a smile
Parting his Innocent lips. In one short hour,
The pretty, harmless hoy was slain I I saw /
The corse,.the mangled corse, and then I cried '
For vengeance! Rouse, ye Romans! rouse, ye slaves!
Have ye brave sons? Look, In the next.fierce brawl,.
To see them die! Have ye fair daughters? Look
To see them live, torn from your arms, dlstalned,
Dishonored! and If ye dare call for justice,
Be answered by the lash! Yot this is. Rome,
That sat on her seven hills, and from her,throne
Of beauty, ruled the world! Yet we are Romansl>
Why, In that elder day, to be a Roman
Was greater, than a king!?and once again?
Hear me, ye ?walls, that echoed to the tread
Of either Brutus!?once again 1 swear

?\*r*>h .inly comes the first real rush for the
shota nnd tho first real surrender to the subtle
fascination always found In tho sea. During
Juno wo talk and plan for an outing that
shall mean deep brcathB of old Ocean's tohlo
?all, dips Into the strengthening sea and nil
sorts of hatiny times spofit Oh Its surfaco in
ynultta, sail boats and what rot, but It Is
In July that we aro npt to atari forth In
oatnost nnd are. consequently, quite suro . to
ponder on what should bo taken, what lott
nt home. It IS then that'trunks nr6 brought
forth and questions of suitability, of this
need nnd ot that arise.
Any ono who knows tho shorn well and hai
studied tho crowds who yearly throng lit
boaches hns had reason to wonder if any
forethought whatever wns exorcised by the
groups gathered there, Not tho Inland sister
alone, who might be pardoned Cofr Ignorance
ot conditions, but Oothamltes themselves, who
suroly ought to know tho sea, make all sort*
of absurd blunders and don costumes as un
sultod to ths damp, moist nlr as may be.
For oxamplo, feathers wero fashionable last
In spite of tho very general knowledge that
fog means tlielr ruin, I saw dozens of well
dressed wom?n at tho nenr by resorts wearing
picture hats with curling plumes, apparently
unmindful or unknowing that cnoh stop made
theni moro iind moro absurd, that the glory
of their feathers wns ns nothing,- that In Ita
stead - they presented a curiously bedraggled
and sorry aspect.
? Thnt a fnr mora chlo appearance would
havo boon maintained by foregoing feathers
nlogothcr, nnd selecting ornaments less enslly
rohbed of' all beauty seemed not to have re?
membered nt nil. yet any glnnco nt a mirror
should, have brought tho truth home nnd any
study ot the toilet at an evening's end should
have, been moro IliSn sufllelerrl.^Betng well
drossod Is being suitably dressed, wo all know,
The sea, In Its very nnlure, sets certain re?
strictions. To heed them Is to be comfortable
ns well ns smart, lo disregard them Is to bo
inlfnrablo both In mind and body.
* Shirt-Waist Suits.
For morning wear nothing Is "so satisfactory
ns tho shirt-waist1-and coat suits made with
skirts that clear the ground. Tho former may
be of llnon, of batiste, or madras, of dimity*
n( elmmbray, the latter of l|nen or any ot the
materials of tho sort In vogue, but. both al?
ways should be simple In' cut nnd smartly
mnde. In them one can stroll nn the'beach,
walk over rough places, row, sail, fish,, enter
Into.whatever sport may bo afoot,
When fresh they are dainty, charming, nil
that a morning costume should he, when soiled
they enn bo Bent to the laundry and trusted to
eoma forth none the worse for the service
they have done. Morning and afternoon* ere
the warm hours of the day, therefore, some
shirt-waist sulta, or extra waists, ot lawn,
will ho found welcome bjv suffering from he?t.
although, let me add, /jhey also are apt. to
?nienn sunburn, and the .slightly heavlor ma?
terials servo better as a .rule.
Shoes and Hats.
With these gowns whl,'e canvas or brown
leather shoes/and both'-, the now broad
brimmed. Mow crown sallor^hats .and the
soft ones of felt are correct. Tho shoes take,
n number of fofcn*. the regulation Oxford, the
new. garden slipper, the thrje hole tie-and
a number of others, hut always show exten?
sion soles and military or flat heels,' So far
ths Louis variety has not Intruded Itself Into
this realm., and It Is to be Ironed that good
sens/i will keep It barred. With the white
shoes, stockings also nre white, with the
browiwjf makllng- color, but here all regu?
lation ends. They may be of silk or Hsl?.
plnln or embroidered. Tho Fuller bat* ore
simply trimmed, preferably with a .band with
bows and quills. Tho felt model* are light In
tho extreme, nnd can be bent and shaped
to suit the wearer nnd tho exigencies of the
hour. Gloves for the most part are eschewed,
Bnd not many parasol* are carried, exposure,
being one of the. outdoor fnds not yet wholly
forgotten, hut when liked, are white, the
gloves, lisle -jr silk; the parasol, plain and
simple In coaching style and, preferably, of
linen embroidered.
Second False Alarm.
Shortly, before noon yesterday an alarm of
fire wns turned In from the Trigg ship?

hard by. On It lay Bed Wull.
"Git off ma ?oatl" the boy ordered,
angrily, marching up. But the gro?v
dog never Mlrrett; ho lifted a Up to show
a fence of while, even teeth, and

head on his paws, his eyes In his /ore
"Come and Uke It!" he seemed to esy.
Now, what between mailer and dog.
David had endured almost more than he
could bear that day.
"Yo' won't, won't yo', girt brute!" h*
?houted, and, nonding, snatched a corner
of the coat and attempted to Jrrk It
away. At that, Red Wull rose, ??lv??
Ing, to his feet, and with a low gurgle
sprang at the boy.
David, quick as a flash, dodged, bent,
and picked up an ugly stake, lying.at his
feet, Swinging round, all In a m'pifienc. j
he dealt Mb antagonist a mighty buffet ,
on the sldo of the nead. Dazed with tho ,
blow, the great dog fell; then, recover- /
Ing himself, wltn a terrible, deep roar j
he sprang again. Then It must have |
gono hnru with the boy; fine-grown, mus?
cular young giant though ho was. For
Red AVull waa now In. the Hrst bloom of
that great strength which earned Uim
afterward an undying notoriety In tho
As It chancod, however, M'Adum had
watched tho scene from the kitchen. And
now ho camo hurrying out of tho house,
shrieking commands and curses at tho
combatunts. Ah Ited Wull sprang, ho
Interposed between tho two, head back
and eyes flashing. His jmuill person're?
ceived the full shock-.'of the.charge, Ho
staggered, but recovered, and in an im?
perative voice ordered the dog to heol.
Then ho turned on David, seized the
stako from his hand, and began furious?
ly! belaboring tho- boy,,
"I'll teach ve to ?trjke-a puir-dumb?
harmless?cre'etur, yo?cruel?cruel?lad!"
he cried. "Hoo dam* yo strike-mu-Wul

M'Adam's?Red Wull?" Ho was panting
from his exertions,, and his eyes were
blazing. "I ?U up as best 1 cud wl'
all manner o' disrespect to. masoi'; but
when It comes lo 'tackln' ma'pulr Wullio,
\ canna thole it. Ha' ye no heart?" he
asked, unconscious of the Irony of tho
question. .? ,.
"As much as some, I reek'n. David
"Eh, what'a that? What d'ye aay?'
"Ye may tlirosh me till ye'ro blind;
and It's nob'but yer duty; but if ony one.
..aura ho much as to look at yer Wullio
yo're mad," the boy answered bitterly.
And with that he turned away defiantly
and openly Jivtho direction of Kenmulr.
"M'Adam mode a step forward, and
then stopped, ....
"I'll seo yo agin', ma ind, jM* .cvenin ,
he cried Willi cruel algnlucance.
"1 doot but yo'll -be too drunk-to see

James Moore and Parson Leggy accom?

disappeared irito the summer night.
"Yon'a a good lad,", said the Master
half to himself.
"Yes." the parson replied; "I always
thought there was gopd In tho boy, If
only his fathcr'd glvo him a chance Ana
look at the way Owd Bob thoro -follows,

"Jio docs," acquiesced tho other. "And

David slipped up Into his room and Into
bed unseen, he hoped. Alone with the
darkness, he allowed himself, the rare
relief of tears; and at longth fell asleep.
Ho awoke to find'his father,Btandln* at
his bedside. The little man hold a fee?
ble dlp-candlo in his hand, which lit his
callow face In crude black nnd'while, in
the doorway, dimly outlined, .was-'the
greV figure ot Red Wull,
"Whaur Im yo been the day? the lit
llo man naked. Then, looking down on
Die whlto, stained face beneath him, he
added hurriedly; "It ye Ilka to lie. I'll
believe ye."?*'
David was out of bed and standing up
In his nlght-shlrt. Ho looked at his fa
ihor contemptuously.
"1 im1' hln at Kenmuir. HI not lie for
yo' or your llkes.'Mia said proudly.
Tho Utile man shrugged; lvs Bhouid?rs.
?"Toll o lee and sljcfc'.lo ?It,* Is my

The candle tremhled and was still

The boy looked scornfully down on his
father. Standing on'rils naked feet, he
already towered half, a head above \M
other and .was twice' the n\gn, -
"D'yo' think I'm fear'd o' a thrashln

"Why, I'd as lief let owd O'ammer Mad

a reference to a certain strap hanging in
the kitchen. "I'll gee If I can warm ye,"
David turned and stumbled down the
unlit, narrow stairs. The hard, cold
boards struck like death against his nak?
ed feet. At his heels followed Red Wull,
his hot breath fanning tho boy's bare
So Into the kitchen and back up the
stairs, and Red Wull always following.
"I'll no despair yet o', teachln* yo the
fifth commandment, though I kill mane!'

the strap from the boy's numb grasp.

When It was over. M'Adam turned,
breathless,. away. At (ho threshold of,
the room he stopped and looked round;
a little, dim-lit. devilish figure, framed
in the door; while from the blacknoss be?
hind, Red Willi's eyes gleamed yellow.
Glancing back. Urn-little man caught
such an expression on David's faco that
for once ho was fairly afraid. Ho bang?
ed tho door and hobbled actively down
thy stairs.
M'Adam?In his sober moments, at taa*t
?never touched David again; Instead, ho
devoted himself lo the moro congenial
exercise of the whiplash of his tonguo,
And ho was wise; for David, who was
already nigh a head tho taller of the
two, and comely and strong in propor?
tion, oould. If he would, havo taken his
father In tho hollow of his hand and
crumbled him like a dry leaf. Moreover,,
with hits tongue, at least, tho little man
enjoyed the noblo pleasure of making thu
hoy wince. And ?o the war waa carried
on none the less vindictively.
Meanwhile another.summer wass pass?
ing nway, and every day brought fresn
proofs of the prowess of Owd Bob. Tain,
mas, whoso stock of yarns anent Rex,
son of Rully had after forty years' hard
wear begun to pall on the--, loyal oars
of even old Jonas, found no lack of new
material now. In the Dalesman's Daugn

Jn Ihe Daleland, And the confidence of
the Dalesmen (n Owd Bob was now ln?
vfnolblB. Sometime*" oh market days, he
would execute some unaccountable ma-,
tietivre, and a strange shepherd would
ask: "What's the ?ray dog at?" 'lo
which the nearest.Dalesman would reply!
".Nay, 1 carina, tell ye! But he's reet
enough. Yon's Owd Bob o' Kenmulr."

He pronounced tho whole article's "basa
and baseless production, tending to hurt

"That I should favor both a crlmlnnV
and a brutal prize fight," he said, "no

could Imagine." Early Saturday morn?

written to Mayor'.?Weaver, Raying that
again, as a Christian minister, ho was
called upon to thank tho Mayor for the
action taken.
In the/alleged interview he referred to
the; exclamation; "You don't say so," ns
one that "no cultivated gentleman would
use.:' and a "rattling good boxing con?
test" as one thnt no clergyman of stand?
ing would employ.
During his statement Dr, Tupper's volca

cluded his statement with tho words:
"Father, forgive them, for they know not
