BLOOMERS IN ENGLAND AHK INNKBBPEBB BIGHT I* HE. PI'SING TO gBRVB WOMBS SO DRESSED LONDON MUCH AGITATED A Jury Ueoitl*-* in Favor of an Inn keeper Who Refwed to Take in n Hlooiiht WoariT, lint the Secu. Inr and Cycling l'rt'MS of Great Britain In in n Hot War of Words <i\«-i- Hie Occurrfnc*. lias a hotelkeeper the right to discrimi nate against a woman cyclist because she wears "rational" ;ittire? Tliis is the question which has been agitating London ami indeed the whole of the cycling public in England for the last few weeks, and, although it has re- Bulted in a court trial and a verdict has been rendered by a jury, the question is far from being settled. The jury was in structed that it was not to pass on the Question of bloomers or cycling at all; that it was to concern itself solely with the right of an innkeeper to dictate to a B4 eker for refreshments what room she tOiall be served in. The jury determined that the innkeeper had that right and the against whom the was brought l>y the cyclist was dis charged. But the battle is not yet over and is si ill being hotly waged in Engllsn journals, both secular and cycling. The fact that it was a member of the l- rage, Lady Harberton, who was sub jected tn the Indignity of having the cor rectness of her costume called into ques tion by an Innkeeper may have had a great deal to do with the interest dis played in the case. Had the complain ant been the wife of a mechanic or tradesman it is every way possible that the public would not have become so much stirred up over the question. But Lady K&rberton! That was a very dif ferent proposition, and the matter soon assumed national proportions. Lady Harberton, to begin with, is treasurer of the National Dress Reform league, and lt.s members on all possible occasions wear what is known in England as "ra tional" attire— that is, loose bifurcated skirts reaching to the knees or perhaps a bit below— much the same as the ordi nary divided skirt which so many women cyclists wear in this country. REFUSED TO ENTERTAIN HER. In October last Lady Harberton was on a cycling tour in Surrey, as she is an enthusiastic rider and has covered more than 4,000 miles in the last two years. At luncheon tide she went to the Haut boy, an inn kept by Mrs. Mary Jane Bprague, at Oekhum. Mrs. Sprague mot the cyclist at the door and told her that she could not be served in the coffee room in that costume, the coffee room being set aside for the use of women. Lady Har berton was told that she would have to eat In the bar parlor, where several men were smoking and drinking. After tak ing one look at that room she refused and went on to another inn, where she was served without question, and afterward she instituted proceedings against Mrs Sprague for refusing to serve a traveler seeking luncheon. Last week the case came to trial at the Surrey quarter ses sions, Lord Coleridge, Q. C, represent ing the petitioner, which legally was the Tourists Cycling club, that body having ?VUl P ~ hC fight f ° r Lady Harberton. LADI Harberton went into the box cool and determined, to tell her story' She was dressed irrationally— If that ie the opposite of rational-just like any other lady. When the time came she produced a photograph of herself as she was on the day of the incident. The fea ture-or features-of the costume were long and wide, after the principle of the divided skirt. She said that on Oct. 27 she was out cycling, and she went to the Hautboy for lunch. Mrs. Sprague came to the door, and said she could not be admitted In that dress. "But," said witness, "I have come from London. I am hungry and I must have some luncheon." Then said Mrs. Sprague. "you must have it in another room. You cannot nave it In the coffee room." DEMANDED HER RIGHTS. "I said I didn't mind what room I had it in, but as I was a member of the C T C. I expected to be served on the usual terms. 'In that case," said Mrs. Sprague you must come into a room on the other f=Kle of the bar. 1 I »aid I didn't care* where I went, so long as I had luncheon, hne replied that she must serve me if I insisted, but she would much rather I went away. "When l had placed my bicycle In the yard Mrs. Sprague opened a back door and took me through a bar where work- Ing men were drinking, into another room where two men were smoking, and there I had lunch. It smelt of tobacco and Bplrits, and all the horrors of a drinking bar. and I am certain that if the Jury had been there that day " But the Jury were not anxious to hear •what would have happened. 1 s;iid I could not stay there; the men were smoking pipes. Mrs. Sprague did not offer me a table; she did not stay for ciders. I came out and saw her, and B.i id I could not possibly stay there. She said It was the cn!y room she was bound # to give me, and it was all I should get I said I would write to the C. T. C, and ehe replied that she did not care. I rode off to Cobham and had lunch there in the- coffee-room without the slightest trouble." Mr. Avory began his cross-examination. Had Lady Harberton any particular ob ject in visiting the Hautboy that day?— None, except it was a nice run. No idea of finding a test case?— None whatever. Yes, but she was the treasurer of the Rational Dress league, and the Rational Dress Gazette was Its organ. The Gazette BaM that, "beyond sending out test cases to obstreperous landlords, the league can Oo but little." But she had nothing to do with the statement; and hers was not designed as a test case.

Eever been to church in it?— No. The theater?— Now, why should I?— When I go to the theater I go in evening dress. Well, why not go in evening dress made on "rational" principles? They would not admit you. I thought not. Well, they would not ad mit me, dressed as I am now, to the stalls. If you wore knickerbockers and an evening bodice would you expect to be admitted; I do not see why I shoula be refused. Would you be surprised if they did re fuse?— Well, I never tried it.

She admitted that the Rational Dress Ga zette advised members of the league who attended court that day not on any ac count to wear rational dress. ' Why? "Well,"" said Lady Harberton, "I sup pose they thought it would not be quite ARTISTS SAT THAT A GIRL WHO IS NONE TOO PRETTY CAN BE MADE POSITIVELY QUAINT AND ATTRACTIVE BY DRESSING THE HAIR IN AN ODD.

Mr. Avory tried to counter, but his remarks were lost in laughter. The whole dispute was as to whether you should be served in the public coffee room? —No, it was as to whether I was to be served in a dirty, reeking, bar parlor or a decent room. I never saw a respectable woman sitting In a bar-parlor. What kind of treatment does a lady in rational costume expect at a hotel?— E xactly the same kind of treatment as a lady in ordinary dress. Lord Coleridge came back to the theater and Lady Harberton said she would as soon think of cycling in a theater dress as going to the theater in cycling attire. '•There would be no sense in it!" said her ladyship with decision, and so left the box. The secretary of the cycling club fol lowed my lady on the witness stand, and allowed that the bar-parlor of the Haut boy was no good place for a lady to lunch, and after some skirmishing over the rules of the club and "test cases" Mr. Avory, counsel for the defense, asked for dismissal on the ground that no case had been made, holding that Mrs. Sprague had not refused to serve Lady Harber ton, but had exercised her right to say in what room a guest should be served. "But," interjected the chairman of the sessions, "suppose the Innkeeper said, 'I Mr. Avory thought that was reductlo Mrs. Avory thought that was reductlo ad absurdum and let it go at that. He declared the Dress Reform league was simply looking for advertisement in bringing the case. Mrs. Sprague, the Innkeeper, was called and declared that Lady Harberton had stated the main in cident correctly, but, she went on, she of fered a private room, but Lady Harber ton refused to pay extra, and so she placed her in the bar proper, where la dies had often lunched before. It was In no sense a common room, nor were the men working-men. One was a retired architect, another a gentleman of Inde pendent means. She had admitted ladles in rational dress to the coffee room when they brought skirts with them and put them on, but on no other condition. Had Lady Harberton been in ordinary dress she would certainly have admitted her to the coffee room. "As an inn keeper I have no right to make a remark about the dress of my guests, but I have a right to consider my business. Lady Harberton and her friends are beyond re proach, but I cannot make one rule for certain people and another for others. There is a class of people in the Ports mouth road who would ruin my busi- FASHION SATS THAT CHILDREN'S HAIR WILL BE DRESSED IN UNIQUE STYLE, REVIVING THE GRANNY CURLS AND THE POMPADOUR WHICH WAS FASHIONABLE FIFTY TEARS AGO.

Therefore, I draw the line at rationals In the coffee room, unless covered by a skirt." AN UNFEELING JURY. The waitress said Mrs. Sprague In structed her to serve lunch for Lady Har berton; the chairman of the parish coun cil save the hotel an excellent name, and said the bar parlor was as good as need be. He had seen girls having tea there, and they preferred it, because it was cozy. A photograph of the room, handed to the jury, showed it in the light of a very comfortable apartment. At last the speeches. Mr. Avory said this was not a case as to whether a lady should or should not be allowed to wear rational costume. Lord Coleridge quoted the law which compels an innkeeper to # serve all who can pay and do not behave in "improper and indecent manner." The chairman made it plain to the Jury that they have nothing to do with bloomere, although the public would not submit to an innkeeper dictating what dress customers should wear. "Many people do not like rational dress. Many people think it ugly and unbecoming. But this is not the issue in this case." The only questions were: Was there a re fusal to supply, food in a suitable apart- ment, and was that refusal given with out sufficient cause? ; The Jury considered the problem for ten minutes, and found Mrs. Sprague not guilty. "Then," said the chairman, "she is discharged." There was applause In court, the gallery being on the side of the Innkeeper. The representatives of the Rational Dress league do not look upon the ver dict as a reversal for their cause, as the main issue was not before the Jury— that Is, whether or not "rational" dress is en titled to the same treatment as ordinary dress. ARE NOT DISCOURAGED. •Miss Edith Vance, the secretary, said: "We are not cast down— far from it. Of course we would rather have won. We think that on the real faots of the case we ought to have won. But although we lost the verdict that is all we have lost, and the decision of twelve Surrey Jury men on the facts as placed before them will have about as much effect on the rational dress movement as had the for mer prejudice against ladies who rode on bicycles or even in hansom cabs. "We shall continue to send out mem bers of the league, decently and properly attired, and for whose behavior we can vouch, to every inn against which we re ceive a complaint. All that I hope is that some inkeeper will misread the result of the case— as it ha 3 already been misrepre sented in one newspaper— and Imagine that he has the right to refuse accommo dations altogether to a lady dressed in knickerbockers. "The case was really determined by the photograph of the bar parlor handed to the Jury. That photograph was quite misleading, as it was not a photograph of the room as it appeared at the time Lady Harberton went~~into It. If I had never seen the actual room, and had to form my Judgment by the photograph I should have said the room was certainly fit for any lady to lunch in. "So far as the costume and Its rights are concerned, the position is pretty much as it was before. The case will, however, teach the Mrs. Spragues one thing, and that is that they are bound to serve ladies in rational costume without pre suming to insist on the addition of a skirt. The only result of the case Is that they may please themselves where they do It, provided the room is 'suitable.' Of course, we don't expect any special drawing room or nonsense of that kind. All we say is that we must be treated as other cyclists, irrespective of sex or costume. What Mrs. Sprague meant by women in skin tights I cannot imagine. If any woman careered through the streets in skin tights she ought to be ar rested by the police. That argument re minds me of the method adopted a few years ago by a fashionable west end costumer. Afraid that the advance of the 'rational' movement might injure trade, that costumer supplied a number of the women who walk about Piccadilly with bifurcated garments In order to bring ridicule on the movement. "You might as well try to sweep back the Atlantic. It is an open secret that the majority of women are clothed ra tionally nowadays with a covering skirt for most kinds of work and exercise. The movement advances more slowly with cy clists than with any other class, because of the refusal of some innkeepers to serve them. The trouble is chiefly in Surrey. There is a smaller proportion of rationally attired cyclists in London than in any other part of the country. "But the day of refusals was doomed by yesterday's trial. The bolder cyclists will Insist on their rights, the more timid will lose their fears, considering that the worst that can happen to them is to be put In another room, which must be suitable for the purpose." FOR CHILDREN'S HAIR. Full Bang; No L.oiiK«r Fault ionable for a Child. What a wise thing it was for some wise woman to change the style of chopping off her daughter's hair as soon as it was any length! They used to keep it short all through the schol days, so that the debutante's "crown of glory" would be thick and beautiful. These cropped years were supposed to Insure this result. Now the girlies are allowed to retain the soft little baby curls, which grow around the seashell ears and brow, and ■which never grow again so prettily after being cut. The watchful mother brushes her little girl's hair carefully every day, which brings out all the glossiness and makes it soft. Then the beauty points are care fully trained, the "widow point," juat over the middle of the eyes; the two points Just over the brows and the two just lower. If the hair is scant there, then a little cocoa oil is rubbed wel] in. ' Another thing to be careful about is not to keep to one ' style too long. If parted the part becomes . too wide, or when the hair is not parted at all it is found difficult to find a part. A' little change like this rests the small nerves as well, and girlie is better for it. For wee girls the "granny curls" are almost exclusively used. The hair Is parted, and narrow, pink, blue or white ribbons tie two curls to fall forward over the ears, so>that when the bonnet is put on they are-, tied in front of the strings. Sometimes these little butterfly bows are tied high above the ears, that is, if the hair is not too long. For dressy occasions a narrow bandeau of silver or gilt is worn, ending with the two little bows and held by an elastic under the hair, j An older girl wears her hair in a full, pompadour, not unlike her mother's, tied with a colored or black bow and then braided down and tied again. The boys wear the cropped hair that has been diseartled by the girls, and a great many rubbings of cocoa oil encour age a regular mop of hair. Tawny or black haired lads look very picturesqua with this style. The heavy bang is parted after a few years, so when he- enters the athletic team for the inters.cholastic games he has a "football head." Sometimes there is an "ugly duckling" among the little girls that can be made to appear charming by dressing her in -a quaint style. For a portrait of a girl by Boutet de Monvel a very odd style of dressing the hair is seen. Over a short, full bang is a large rolled puff of hair, pinned securely on the top of the head. The rest of the hair is simply curled at the ends. An artist will often Start a becoming style of children's hair, which' will be taken as a model. The. little son of Mr. George de Forest Brush is always painted with the heaVy bang cropped squarely | round the baclc, just missing the low round coUaj;, The dry point etcher, Mr. Hellen, has: a little sketch of his daughter. Ellen, with, a dull, loosely tied pompadour. Mrs. Rosina Emmett Sherwood's wee girl, painted' by Cecelia Beaux, has her hair parted pr^ the side,, boy fashion, and tied with a y pink ribbon. Mr. Chase's romping Alice has her hair .drawn back from the brow. It shows a ribbon on the crown of her dainty head, as does also charming little Beatrice Goelet in Sar gent's painting. It is a pleasure to see the little flower faces not shaded by the heavy bangs any more, and to know that soft ringlets and dainty ribbons are the fashion for chil dren's hair. Ringlets and curls it must be up to a certain age. The old-fashioned curling sticks are coming into use again, so by "fair means or foul," as the little victims of crimpers and tongs may think, girl and curl are synonymous at the present day. There are said to be ways of controlling the color of a child's hair, if taken early enough, but experiments have failed to prove this a success. Strong tea deepens the color of' hafr that is too vividly red, and the application of oil darkens ana subdues hair that is neither black nor brown, but' ls' Dust a dull, rusty color. Taken all in all, though, it is better to leave a chit* 1 * hair as it is, and to make it pretty by; ways of dressing it rather than by heroic" means. A very qufaint fashion for the summer is that af gathering a child's hair up on top of the »«ad 'and tying with a ribbon. The ends are then allowed to float loose and are sligihtly curled at the tips. This style is cool'aTid very becoming to small, plump faces.' \s i Another cool! =style is that of parting the hair down the back and drawing it each side to the front, where it is tied just over the ears with a small ribbon bow. A child's hair is never pretty braided, and you see very few braids, even in the most fashionable portraits of children.

There are enormous fortunes in singla pearls. Individuals and great potentates have Jewels of this sort which are literal ly worth a king's ransom. In all the worid there is no more famous pearl than the Tavernier, now in the possession of the Shah of Persia. This remarkable gem came to this Eastern king by descent. It derives its name from having been sold THIS BROOCH IS CALLED THE "MILK WHITE PEARL." IT CON SISTS OF A FAULTLESS RUBY SURROUNDED BY PURE WHITE PEARLS, SO CLEAR THAT YOU CAN SEE DAYLIGHT THROUGH THEM.

The urtco then was $500,000. It is now worth more than $630,000. The Imam of Muscat has a pearl worth $135,000, weighing twelve and one-half carats. Through it the daylight can be seen. Princess Yousoupoff's finest gem is wonderfully beautiful. "Valued at $180, --000, it was first heard of In IC2O, when Georgibus of Calais sold it to Philip IV. of Spain. Eighty thousand dollars is the figure that it is approximated the pope's pearl would bring. One of Leo's predecessori became possessed of It, and It has de scended in regular course to the pope. There are many remarkable pearl neck laces. These necklaces are made up gradually, pearl after pearl being added to the set. On the whole, pink pearls are not espe cially valuable, black ones bringing far higher prices, and pearls that are white being sought next after them. Queen Victoria, of England, has a necklace of pink pearls that is worth $80,000, and the Dowager Empress of Germany one made of thirty-two pearls which would bring $125,000. Tha Rothschild women have, however, gems of this sort that far exceed in val ue those of royalty. Baroness Gustave de Rothschild possesses one made up of five rows of pearls, the whole chain valued at ?200,000. Baroness Adolphe de Roths child owns a circlet that would fetch $250,000. Even more brilliant, because it has seven rows, is the necklace of the Dow ager Empress of Rus3ia. The casket of this royal lady is the most famous in the world from a gem point of view. Hardly second to it is that of the Em press of Austria, whose black pearls are noted throughout Europe for their ex treme beauty and rarity. What has become of the white pearls of the Empress Eugenic, sold at the close of the Franco-Prussian war, has never been made known. The value of these was some $60,000, and they were gathered together in a very beautiful necklace that frequently graced the neck of that unfortunate queen. The largest pearl owned by an individ ual in this country belongs to Mrs. W. K. Vanderbllt Jr. The pearl was a gift from her husband upon their wedding day. It Is a pearl shaped like a pear, and is said to have cost $78,000. Daylight can be seen through it. It Is hung from a big ruby, whose rays have a wonderful blue tinge, shining, as It were, through red. Mrs. Potter Palmer's pearls have made her well-known photograph famous. There are six rows of perfectly gradu ated pearls, all of purest white. Mrs. Yerkes is said to ha^e some won derful pearls, which are tOe shown to Nev/ York society this coming wintor. And in the CSouid family the finest ara said to belong to Mrs. Haward, formerly Miss Clcmmons. Thft Countess Castellane, besides own- Ing the Esterhazy diamond, possesses the Isabella pearl. This was formerly the property of the Queen of Spain. In 149-5, when getting money for an expedition to the new world, the royal coffers were drained, and this pearl, with a few others, were sold. Years after the death of the queen the pearl was purchased by a descendant of De Soto, who had amassed great wealth in Mexico. The pearl was all that was lacking to complete a remarkable collec tion of these gems. For many yearn afterward the pearl remained in this country, but was finally sold abroad by a younger son of an American family, where it was purchased by Count Cas tellane for his wife. -•" DINNER WITH VEGETARIANS. Vegetable Oyster Soap, Nut Beef steak or Stewed Nat Lamb, There is a vegetarian cafe In Detroit, Mich., and another in Salt Lake City. One of the first customers of the new restaurant was a flesh-eater, who wan dered in by chance. He drew out a chair and sat down. A waiter hurried to him. "We have panned and broiled vegetable oysters, sir. And clam boulion cf nuts and ox-tail soup made from fruit." "Fruits! Nuts! Jlmmimy! What have I struck? What place Is this, anyway?" "This Is a vegetarian restaurant, sir. '"You can have a complete course din ner, beginning with the vegetable oysters served in any style, and the boulion. "For meats I can give you nutmeat pie or nut English stew. Our nut-beefsteak is smothered in onions like the ordinary beefsteak you eat for a cold morning's breakfast. Our stewed nut lamb is sur rounded v-ith green peas like the spring dainty you pay such a price for in other restaurants. Nut lamb comes at fifteen cents. You would pay half a dollar for spring lamb at a flesh-eating restaurant. "Then there Is a black walnut roast, sir, whlc.h our patrons consider delicious. With this we serve a rich vegetarian gravy. Some days we serve also a nut beef loaf and a nut-meat pie. "Our roast nut lamb Is garnished with mashed peas, a vegetarian Idea, and served, of course, with mint sauce. Nut lamb is nothing without mint sauce. A portion will cost you ten cents."' "What relishes can I order?" "Nut chicken croquettes, croquettes of ripe olives mixed with rice. Macaroni with nut paste. We don't \ise cheese. It is an animal product. Then there is nut chicken salad cold, and delicious served with our own mayonnaise. Rice we serve with golden sauce. "We make a specialty of salads. Ap ples and tomatoes we mix and prepare with a dressing of mint, oil, vinegar and salt. We have a" curly cabbage, salad, too, that is much liked. It is dressed with a sauce made from tomatoes. Sun flower salad is another favorite, and wa keep It when seasonable.'" "How about eggs?" "Not the real eggs, of course— an ani mal product— but we have vegetarian eggs. These are prepared from cereals or nuts. They are made In half a dozen ■styles, poached on flakes or on zwieback, boiled or curdled, scrambled, plain, with cream. witK lemon, etc. 'tome of our new dlahes are nut cake* _ •with gravy, potato hash, broiled mock oysters and stewed cantaloupe In orange j Byrup. Our baked peanuts are rendered tasty by hygienic catsup. "For dessert I can bring you almost any variety of pie— apple, peach, cran berry, grape, nut, etc.; prunes stewed as they should be stewed; steamed pudding •with fruit sauce, or macaroni pudding with grape marmalade." The flesh-eater unfolded his napkin. "Well," he said, "give me a vegetarian course dinner. It sounds as if I could get a good square meal out of all that." KANAWHA FOUNDERED. SAN JUAN DEL PORTO RICO, April 29.— The steamship Kanawha. of New York, Capt. Evans, which left Newport News on April 2, with coal for Bermuda, sprung a leak, broke her rudder and foun dered 150 miles from Bermuda on April 6. Her officers and crew, fourteen men in all, took to the lifeboats, leaving all their effects on board the steamer. They were rescued by the American brig Atlanta, Capt. Darling, bound from Philadelphia for San Juan, with coal. Before being picked up the men from the Kanawha suffered greatly from hunger and thirst. The Atlanta arrived here with the ship wrecked sailors at 6 o'clock last evening. The crew of the Kanawha are now fully recovered from their hardship?, and en thusiastic over Capt.
