All! but the perfect woman! Perfect be it understood, as poor humanity enn muster in this mundane sphere. And it reaches a rather high order when it takes the form of a well-bred, winsome bit of feminine loveliness, with strong muscles and well nourished nerves. Can anything lie moie full of fascination than to watch the supple movements, the graceful pose or the lithe, pliant woman as she goes about her various taskes or takes her rest? How reposeful she is as she plays the role of hosotss and receives her guests with her courteous hand-shake and bend of a well poised head. How bewJtchingly she pours -tea or reclines on lounge or low seat to chat with a new or old acquaintance. Her gar ments flow about her in such artistic folds, her laces have Just the right fall.lier jewels shine. It matters little what she does, be it, some domestic occupation, riding, driv ing, n game of golf or quoits, or on a friend's yacht. She is the poetry of motion or equally of repose, and a delight to the for tunate beholder. "When the bachelor, by any piece of good luck, meets this piece of divinity, let him not hesitate for longer than is necessary to gain her yes, his future, barring accidents, will slow with roseate hues, life will hold for him its greatest Joy. SEHVlNl. KKUIT. Delicious Modes of Prepurins Tempt ing Summer Dishes. Among the various ways of serving fruits in season, a compote is one of the most delicious, yet few cooks understand the art or making it properly, their at tempts to do so resulting in a dish of stowed fr.iit. Firm, pcrrect fruit only should be selected when a compote is to be made. It should be peeled quickly, dropped in alum water, or ice water and lemon .Juice, then into the Iwiling syrup, and cooked slowly until clear. A COMPOTE OP GOOSEBERRIES. Strain one quart of red currant Juice into a preserving kettle. Set in on the lire and add five pounds of sugar to it. Stir until dissolve!; put in eight pounds of ripe, firm gooseberries; let simmer for half an hour; take up, let stand over night, set on the fire and cook until clear; skim the fruit out carefully and put in a dish. Boil the syrup until low, and pour ovor sauce cold. APPLE COMPOTE. Cut up and boll a dozen tart apples in a quart of water. When soft, take from the kettle, put in a jelly bag and strain without squeezing. Put the juice, in a preserve kettle with a pound or sugar and a slice of thin lemon peel. Set on the fire, let come to a boil. Skim, pare and core a dozen good cooking apples, drop into the syrup and let boil very gently until lender. Take up carefully, without breaking, on a perforated skimmer, and set aside to -cool. Boll the syrup to a jelly, pour it over the apples. When cold, serve for luncheon or tea with whipped cream. APPLE COMPOTE A LA FRANCE. (For a company luncheon or tea.) Cut up half a dozen sour apples, put in a preserve kettle with the Juice and rind of a lemon and three cups of water; set over the fire to boil until tender; take up and strain, return the juice to the kettle with half a pound of sugar, and let cook for two minutes. Peel eight large cook ing apples, remove the core carefully and drop the apples into tho syrup. Let simmer gently until tender and clear; take from the kettle, fill the centers with orange marmalade, lay carefully in a compote dish. Boil the syrup slowly until thick. When the apples arc very cold and the syrup cool, pour it over. Set on ice until chilled before serving. COMPOTEOF PEARS. Select fine-flavored, perfect pears. Cut them in halves, core, pare and trim. Make syrup of three-quarters of a pound of sugar, a pint of water and a squeeze of lemon juice; put the fruit in and let simmer until tender, but not folt. Take the pieces up carefully and lay close together on a compote dish, boil the syrup until thick". Drop bits of rinc apple Jelly over the pears and pour the syrup around and serve. Take large, fine strawberries, raspber ries or blackberries not entirely ripe. Make a thin syrup, take from the fire, drop the berries in and set on the back of the range until they begin to boil slowly; take the fruit up carefully and lay on a compote dish; let the syrup boil fast until thick; skim it carefully, let cool and pour over the berries.

There is literally no end to them and they are funny enough to col lect and make up a volume on the subject. Somehow, no matter how much one may bo hurt and braised in a bodily sense by his experience in trying the bike, there is in variably a ludicrous light to present itself even to the person most nearly concerned. On one particular street of the West End there are about a dozen young society peo ple who, having attained varying degrees of inefficiency in riding the bicycle, meet nearly every evening to go for a long ride out into the country. Frequently one or more tandom machines figure conspicuously in the gay turnout. One evening last week the party set out and, after a wonderful series of curves and evolutions executed in the mounting process, wheeled out infinestyle toward the Tonally-, town road. They held out boldly and when the Tenallytown road was finally reached they concluded to lengthen the spin by making for Glen Echo. In this, however, they. reckoned without their host, in more senses than one. Out they flew along the winding road and then suddenly, like the "Deacon's wonder ful one boss shay" tho whole thing col lapsed. In sonic curious manner the road. seemed to be suddenly strewn with fashionable humanity. Whether it was that thoj-jround had suddenly risen up and met the cyclers fairly and squarely in the face, or whether they and tho bicycles together had sudden denly developed tunneling propensities; was then, and still remains, a mooted question. However it was, the entire company, bicycles and all, were strewn promiscuously over tho Glen Echo road. It took some time for the cyclers to collect themselves and their respective belongings together anil, by the time that had been accomplished, all further desire, for cycling, so far at least as concerned that particular evening, had died a natural death. Died so effectually that not even a ghost or its former self was to be detected lurking anywhere. The next thing to do was to secure some means of conveyance back to the city as, while the cars would have been sufficient for the members of the party, they would have been by no means sufficient for the bicycles. Their transportation was v. most important matter of consideration.' It was a wild, lonely spot that had bccji selected for the wholesale heuder. Appar ently, there was not a house within miles, so the cvcl'-rs or the West End sat themselves down by the roadside for a season or prayer " and meditation. It was not long before the nimble ot wheels was heard, and, with one accord, the cyclers were upon their roet to hail tho passing vehicle. When it came m sight it was by no means the stylish article with C springs inwardly desired for trausportn- lion purposes. It was instead the sorriest looking old country wagon imaginable. There was no help for it, however. It was the only one available, and, for all that the driver could tell to the contrary, was the only one likely to pass along that way before sunrise or the next day. That decided it. Tho society contingent srrumt A in as best they might after having tho nuuHTous bicycles carefully loaded, and so rode back to town, Inwardly hoping that not only would none of their friends meet thCm, bat that no knowledge of the niirht's adventure would ever creep out to the knowledge of those same friends. An Item of interest to the social, no less than to the reaJ estate, circles in Washing ton of Into has been the purchase of valuable property on II street, near the corner of Eitrhteenth street, by Miss Howard, whose marriage to the late mayor or Chicago was prevented by his assassination. The property has been encumbered for many years by two small and miserably dilapidated houses. These have now been removed and the property cleared prepara tory to the orectiou of a fine residence. To know what you mean and tobenulcto express that knowledge in suitable words are quite different things. There is a certain class of individual to whom the proper meaning of words never seems to impress itself upou tho mind. Two girls of this description set out for a ride In oneofthesummercars recently. Theywere-,moreover,ofthetypcthatdesires above all things that their conversation shall rage rampant throughout the length and breadth of the car for tho benefit of all other passengers. One of the girls was plentifully bedecked witli rings for the most desirable showing off of which she made sundry and frequent dabs at her back hair, smoothing into place imaginary stray locks. Her companoln was by no means the possessor of as many rings and glittering gew-gaws, but she had a fund of knowledge that was astonishing, taken all in all. Following her companion's lead, site too sought to put in place straggling back locks that had no idea or straying out of place except in her imagination, aided and allotted by he r desire to show of r her hands. With a bland smile, that look in the sweep or the whole car and included every pas Benger in her confidence, the young woman on the front seat burst forth into speech: "I declare, I do have such trouble keep ing those short back hairs in place. I really must get something for it. I think I will try" "Bandoline," suggested her companion, quickly. "No; dear me, what Is the name of. the thing?" "Curlene," again suggests the Trlcnd, com ing Tor a second tiiuo to the rescue. "No, no; I know just as well what the name is, only I can't think or it. Not dennaline oh, yes, I have it how roolish not to re member at one. It Is anodyne." Mrs. Robert P. Bowlor left the city the first of June, accompanied by her family, for Bar Harbor, where she will spend the season in the cottage recently purchased for that purpose. Miss Susan and Miss Julia Delafield have closed their I street house and gone to Now York for the summer. Mrs. Benet has gone to her summer home in Sorrento, Me., for a short stay before sailing for Europe, where she will spend several years with her son, Mr. Laurie Benet.

Fine Dress Parade Given on the White Lot. WITNESSED I5Y THOUSANDS Gon. Ordwny Much Pleased with tho Result of CampTents Struck and Troops Safely Embarked The Last .Night a. Most Qulot Ono Tholr Ilo turn to tho City Yesterday, The soldier boys have marched home. They came ,to the city at 3:30 yesterday uftcrnoou, and an hour and a half later they wore forming for dress parade on the White Lot. Several thousand people were gathered there to welcome them and saw as pretty a sight as they could wish. The column of masses, company rront, extended clear across the circle. The ceremony was per fect and the music inspiriting. "That's the new ceremony The Times has been telling us about," was spoken all, through the crowd as tho brigade in column of companies commenced march ing past the colors. During the parade six men dropped out of tho rank. The march from the wharf and the heat were too much for them. They were not seriously affected. Tho carriages of several spectators were placed at their disposal and they were taken home as soon us tho ambulance corps had revived them. Gen. Ordway lowered tho flag at Camp Washington himseir, as the band played "Hail Columbiu." Tho commands then formed and inarched to the wharf and rapidly embarked on the River Queeu. The brigade band played "Maryland, My Maryland," as tho boatsteamod away. At the Seventh street wharf the boys marched from the steamer to the strains of "Home Again." The last night In camp was a quiet one though it was secured by the utmost vigilance. Co. D, Fourth battalion, which was on guard had, perhaps, the hardest time or uny detail yet, but they did splen didly. About midnight they were called out Tor a blaze near tlio Second battalion color line, but it had been extinguished when they arrived. The boys or the Third battalion were expected to break out, but strict guard was kept over them. Two sentinels par aded each company 6treet all the uight. Gen. Ordwny was prepared for them, t hough, and ordershadbeonissuedtomarch them over Into the fort should any trouble occhr. There they would have been kept all night under guard. Striking the tents began at 9 o'clock. The First and Second Battalions lowered theirs at a signal, but tho others struck tueirs as they dried. A lunch of sandwiches and Ice water was served to each command at noon. The Second Regiment cleaned camp in the most approved style and Gen. Ordway noticed it. . GEN. ORDWAY PLEASED. Iii speaking of the results of the camp Gen. Ordway said to Tho Times representa tive: "I am pleased beyond expression." The hospital tents were left standing and will be teken down by a detail of labor ers undercharge of Major Neumeyer, Capt. Parnieiiter, and Lieut. King. They were in use in the morning. Two patients were in them, Private A. Hogan, Companv A, First Separate Battalion, and Corp. H. S. Tullis, Company A, Sixth. Dr. Foster and Dr. Neoly were in charge. In the city a post hospital was established at the Emergency Hospital and placed in command of Surg. "Woodman. He remained in charge until afterthe parade, but had no patients. The utnbulance corps yell is: "One, two, three, Who are we? Ambulance Cons, I). C, N. G." They are singers, too, and put in the time waiting forslck men by sing ing choruses. Company D, Third Battalion, Is the one other organization, having a call and their's was: "One, two, three, "Who are we? Company D, Third Battalion, D. a, N. G., Cnir Guards." . Major Neumeyer, post commissary, with his family, remains in camp until this even Ing. He thinks Quartermaster Harvey, of the Engineer Corps, one the finest quarter masters in the guard. Capt. Pannenter says Lieut. Gibson should remain as quar tenuaster of the Third. "They spoil him when they put him in as inspector or ririo practice." E. H. Neumeyer, jr., goes it now as "Captain." Fire broke out behind the mess tent of the Third Battalion at noon, Capt. Mattlugly and his company wore making sandwiches at that time. He turned his company out and put it out after a good, hard fight. They heard the man run who set it afire. Tho Third has been subject to considerable criticism during this camp. Yesterday morning one company was bombarding each other with loaves of bread. But the other ofneers claim that this company has caused all the trouble and that everything that happened in that end of camp was blamed on them. Some matters will be brought to the general's attention this week. The camp has been unusually healthy and tho sanitary arrangements were per fect. If possible another camp will be held next year and a great effort will be made to secure an appropriation of 550, 000. If this can bo done the boys will be taken care of. NOTES FROM CAMP BUGLES.
