Decollete Gowns.
An Interesting story Is told showing
how Virginia Pair (now Mrs. William
K. Vanderhllt) happened to become
sponsor for the mode In voguo among
tho lady acrobats to appear before theli
audiences In decqlletc gowns. It wa.
while attending u performance of the
Forepaugh and Sells Brothers Com-
blned Circuses at Central Park, San
Francisco, two years ago, that Mls3
Fair suggested to tho Forepaugh treas
urer, who, by the way, was a life-long
friend of the late Senator Fair, that It
would be far more becoming and of
much greater interest if the ladle3
would discard tho more or less vulgar
bloomero for the ever-popular evening
It so happened before the closo of the
ten days' season at the Golden Gate
City, that Miss Fair had the pleasure
of seeing her suggestions acted upon,
but she never dreamed that they woul 1
create so much contusion and excite
ment in the western metropolis. It
seems that tho several lady acrobat3
with the show, upon deciding to adopt
the evening costume, fell to discussing
the respective merits of the different
modistes, and tho 'fact developed that
each had a favorite. In placing their
orders for fancy gowns each took spp
clal pains to mention the fact that hoi
asociates were naving their costumes
by other modistes, and that she wish
ed, of course to have the prettiest of
Thus rivalry, keen and intense, was
created among the modistes, each of
whom was anxious to design the most
elaborate gown. Of course, the lord
high executioner of my lady's appar
el divulged the secret to her friends
and asked them to be present nnd cheer
lustily when her patron made an ap
pearance. In this, she had lilt upon m
identical plan adopted by her competi
tors. The result was that the young
lady acrobats scored the hit of tnelr
lives. The applause once started, the
strain was taken up by the vast aud
ience, and the acrobats were the lion
of the evening. Prior to that time
their exhibition, which was replete
with difficult feats, had been lost
sight of in the wealth of equestrian,
hippodromatlc and aeriallstic exploits
which characterize the Forepaugh and
Sells Brothers combination.

In a postal card which I placed in tho

Special to the Leader.
Horton, W. Va., July 19. Passengers
on the northbound train of the Dry
Fork Railway yesterday had one of the
most exciting experiences In the his
tory of mountain railroading in this
part of the state. As the train was
slowly making its way around a curve
near an almost precipltlous mountain
side at Carr's Camp between Harmou
and Hendrricks, a huge rattlesnake
leaped through a window into the
coach, almost frightening the women
and children In the train to death,
while the men were about equally anx
ious to secure places of safety.

Recent Wreck,
the hot steam which filled the car.
"The car heaved and tossed like a
bucking broncho as It climbed up over
the wreckage of tender and engine,
with a shower of letters and papers in
my face and with splinters, coal and
water falling on my head and back
I still mannged to retain my hold on
tho rack and when we stopped I was
by tho sr9o of Roush, who was penned
In a corner by the letter case badly
biulsed and shaken. We could l-ardly
see each other for the steam and the
cries of the wounded outsldo were
heartrending. Roush broke a window
with his fist and climbed to tho roof.
I couldn't get through tho hole he made
so I stayed there until he helped me
out. The mall car was demolished to
the side doors, and where I had stood
but a moment before the stove, weigh
ing 2,000 pounds, now lay bruised and

miraculous. I may have been near

mild form, but I surely shook hands
with the real thing this time. A hun
dred bruises and a crippled side gently

Speaking of Engineer Al. Courtrlte,

Prof. Stnrr, of the University of Chi

"Statistics show that students in
Jap.in nre affected more by eye trou

true that our young men are very
studious, but our young women are
not expected to be scholars. They

"I have discovered n very great de

man, "and the defect is univer

very few tables built after my ideal,

"Now, I have what I may call n
mealtime hobby. I always want to
cross my legs under the table. Most
men do, I believe. And why not? It
is a comfortable position. It enables
one to .sit more erect, too. I do not
know what etiquette says about one's
legs and feet during meal time, but I
suppose It goes no further than to
suggest that they should be kept un
der the table, which is correct, I
ween. But I insist that among my
inalienable rights is the right to cross
my legs, and to cross them under the
mahogany at that if it pleases me to
do bo and adds to my comfort.
"And yet It is a fact that one rare

cause of the awkward, grotesque and
unhappy architecture of the dining
table. The tables ought to be differ

roomier, o thnt a fellow would have
ample space in which to cross his

a good deal of the old furniture and

them with his own. Having this in
