FIFTY BLOOMER GIRLS. They Gone In For Radical I)re Ite- r form Ed Maam. The bicycle has been one of the most potent aids of dress reform. Thousands of women ncnv ride their wheels in dividel skirts, bloomers and KaitPrs that reach to tho knee, and in New York and Brooklyn the bloomer girl is so often seen ped aling her bicycle along the streets and in the parks that she no lon ger attracts spe cial attention. With such an opening wedge in evidence, the news that 50 San Francisco wom en have promised to wear a reform costume when FOtt kaixy days. the weather is stormy and wet does not cause the sur priso it would havo caused a year or two ago. The San Francisco dres3 reform suit is designed solely for wet weather, when skirts, conventional hose and shoe3 afford very unsatisfactory protec tion against tho rain. The costume has a cutaway jacket that resembles the popular outing jacket, a short skirt and dark wool bloomers that reach to the knee. Below the knees are rubber leg ging?, and tho boots are supplied with ordinary rnbber sandals. An alpine hat serves as headgear, and there are collars, cuffs and a very mannish waist coat that has a satin back and straps and buckles to tighten it There aro two rows of gilt buttons and small pock ets for money and a watch. The jacket has revers, pockets, gaunt letliko cuffs of the dark wool, and tho front opens without any sign of fasten ing over the waistcoat Tho vest also has rolling revers and is cut low. Tho skirt is made in largo plaits, tho front being smooth and gored, and tho length in inches may be regulated according to the taste of the wearer. The popular skirt, however, seems one that reaches about two inches below tho knee. Un der the skirt and well concealed from view are the revolutionary bloomers, which are of a decidedly baggy charac ter. They are hold in at the waist and knees ty rubber bands. "MY COUNTRY, 'TIS OF THEE." IVer. Ir. Smith, Vlio Wrote "America,' Is Now Elghty-clx Years Old. Rev. Dr. Samuel F. Smith, the au thor of tho national hymn "America,' recently celebrated his eighty-sixth birthday, and despite his advanced ago is in excellent health for one of his years. lie was a classmate of tho late Dr. Oliver Wendell llolmes and is tho Smith immortalized as follows in tho autocrat's famous poem, "The Boys:" And tbeiv m nice younirt r rf excellent jlth.

Boston, July 4, 1&32, and at onco attracted wido tJ- i:ev. rn. samuel f. smith. tcntion. In a very few years tho words were familiar all over tho country, and "America" took rank as a national air with "The Star Spangled Banner." During the war the northern soldiers found inspiration in the song eve n while bullets were flvincr. and on Feb. 22, WJ, Bartlttt's entire brigade of the, Army of the Potomac celebrated Wash ington's birthday by singing "Ameri ca" in chorus at Camp White Oak church in Virginix Five martial bands played the air, and 2,o00mcn composed tho grand chorus.
