rSrECML TELIOH TO THE DISPATCH.!
Atxastio City, If. J., July r. Away from
the counting room and the vt orishop, 2,000 Pitts
burgers, to say nothing of the sweet-raced girls
and handsome women, are Inhaling the bracing
breezes of the saltv sea and loitering about the
thousands of attractive resorts of every descrip
tion which mae Atlantic City a paradise of
pleasure and an clyslam of enjojment during
the summer months.
The excursionists are pouring in from 1 itts
burg with wonderful rapidity. Many of them
are lea vine for home, sunburned and strength
ened by their trip, to mako room for those to
The bathing this summer Is the finest known
lor years. Ihe nater is warm and the breakers
are Just largo and numerous enough to make it
a joy to throw one's seif Into the surf for a few
hours evcrv da. Most of the bathing houses
have a new set of costumes this year, and the
scenes along the beach during the fashionable
bathing hours are as animating as they are
beautiful. These who do not bathe spend their
time in sailing or fishine, others In sight-seeing
and manv in sweet seclusion. Everyboy's hob
bies can be satisfied here and none want for
something to please them.
There have been a number of changes made
In Atlantic City since last year, which add
greatly to the attractiveness of the place. The
blizzard of last winter was a god-send in many
respects. Beside sweeping away the old
rookeries, which have for a number of years
been an evesore to those promenading the
beach and boardwalk, it has brought about the
erection of seven miles of new plank walk, 15
or 20 feet wide, along the coast, and caused to
be built a number of handsome buildings and
bathhouses near the beach.
Probably the greatest improvement and one
of the greatest value to health seekers is the
wonderful artesian w ell water plant which has
iustboen connected with all the prominent
totels and cottages in Atlantic City. The
physicians from all over the country who
have tested the water say it is the purest
in the world, possessing medicinal qualities
wmen surpass anytning ever uiscuvereu m
Europe or America. The water Is to be bar
reled and shipped to all parts of the globe as
Boon as the second well, which is now 1.SS5 feet
deep, is completed. The well which Is now fur
nishing the company's supply, has a capacity
of 40,000 gallons per hour and Is situate on the
meadows immediately north of the city. The
THIS WONDEBFUL BEVEBAGE
Is thought to be worth millions to Atlantic City
as a health resort. The new well will be complet
ed next week. Another improvement is the new
electric railroad which divides the city into two
parts. It runs from the Inlet to the Excursion
House, a distance of 12 miles, and every five
minutes one can take a car and complete the
trip from one terminus to another for 5 cents.
It is the best equipped ana most speedy electrio
road in the United btates, and is being copied
from in several large cities already. The ad
vantage to sojourners is unlimited. All the
hotels have made improvements and the most
of them have been enlarged and completely

Hjorth H. Boyeson, Professor of Germanic

Chautauqua has undertaken an important
an immense scneme, me uu ivciai.jr cucuaiuu
plan. This is, in brief, to give tbe masses
glimpse of a college education by means of a
systematic lecture course. When a town or
city wishes a course of leetures, they form a
local committee, select the subject upon which
the lectures are to be riven, raise a guarantee
fund, and sell tickets for the course. Ibey
then send to the Central Committee, which
supplies them with a lecturer. A corps of
lecturers, carefully chosen. Is controlled by the
General Committee, which consists of pro
fessors in the various colleges throughout the
United States. The lecturer gives 12 lectures
of an hour each, and 12 lessons, for individual
work, of 45 minutes each. He distributes out
lines of each lecture and questions concerning
them. Each student answers these questions
and submits them to the lecturer for cor
rection and comment. He brings with him a
small library which the students are expected
to use as a supplement to their other work. At
the close of tbe course, an examination is held
under the authority of the Central Committee.
The committees are now holding meetings, and
expect to complete arrangements so that tbey
can begin work in the fall.
The glee club bado Chautauqua goodby on
Friday. Thursday night they appeared for tbe
last time, and sang all the songs which had
proved to be the people's favorites. Wednes
uay was Yale night. Forty Yale men, mainly
graduates, appeared on the platform. Among
them was the dignified Prof. Harper and Prof.
Ely. They seated themselves on a fence that
had been constructed on the platform in mem
ory of tbe old Yale fence, ana sang tne college
songs. Two fraternities were represented, and
the two sides engaged In mock struggles over
their banners. They ended with the Yale yell,
given in a most spirited way. and marched oil
to the hotel, where they indulged in a banquet.
Much regret has been expressed over the de
parture of the glee club.
A new idea has struck Chautauqua the
formation of a boating club. Dr. Anderson,
Director of tho Department of Physical Cul
ture, has the project in charge, and tbe pros
pect is that there will be one or moro excellent
crews formed. The fleet is to consist or four,
six and eight-oared boats, one of each to be
ordered at first. All arrangements are to be
perfected this summer, and next season the
club will be in active operation. G. O. F.
CAPE MAT BREEZES.
Some of the Improvements at a Favorite
rErZCIAI. TELEGRAM TO. THE DISPATCH.!
Cape Mat, N. J., July 27. That this old and
popular resort is about to progress rapidly
within the next decade Is a fact that will be
world-widely known in a sharttlme. A great
future Is before the place. About ISM, when
Capo May was first noticed as a resort, but few
alterations or improvements occurred, but
about 1811 boarding houses began to be erected,
and an impetus was given to the
enterprises that has built up a seaside
watering place which stands among
tbe oldest and most favored by nature on the
coast. Charles Dudley Warner briefly describes
Cape May in words something like these: "Na
ture has done for Cape May what she has for
no other seaside or mountain resort." The situ-
atlon on the little peninsular-like cape May
county gives it an advantage over many re
sorts. With the Atlantic ocean on the one side
and the Delaware bay on the other. Cape May
is bound to get all the breezes and advantages
or temperature. While admitting the fact that
one standing on the beach sand when the snn
Is shining brlgntiy win get warmea very mucn,
we can yet say that Cape May's temperature is
considerably cooler in summer and warmer in
winter than tbe inland country. Tbe fact of
tbe sea's water being cooler than tbe air in
summer has an effect upon the atmosphere
which comes in contact with it.
The matter of the encroachment of the sea
upon tbe shores or New Jersey and the gradual
washing away or our beach bv the northeasterly
storms, which rave every winter along the
coast. Is receiving a great deal or attention or
late. A move to discuss means by wbicb the
encroachment will be prohibited to a great ex
tent has been made.
Tbe Joint Committee on Correction or Char
ities finished their business as far as Cape May
was concerned on Tuesday and adjourned to
meet at the call of the Chair in Philadelphia.
While here the committee enjoyed themselves.
The winding-up day of their business visit was
partly spent on tbe water. In the afternoon
they were sailing offshore in the Pennsylvania
pilot boat Edward C. Knight.
Tbe greatest fisherman at the Cape this year
is ex-Governor William M. Bnnn, of Philadel
phia, who follows the art every day. He always
comes back in the evening with a good siring
of fisb, and since he has began to fish he can
tell yams or that sort.
For gayety this week Cape May has excelled.
Tbe bops at the large hotels, which have taken
place almost nightly, have been largely at
tended, and many of Pittsburg's people have
been lookers-on or partakers In the dances.
Tbe town as it appears to-day has a pretty look
about It. The shade or the trees with the
breeze or tbe Atlantic, makes a funny but
pleasant mixture or happiness and comfort.
Two things which go here are tbe famous
euchre parties and "bus" or straw rides
through the country. Several of both of these
pastimes have taken place within the past

It is grateful to be once more in the reach
of the cool airs of the New England coast,
away from depressing city smells and heat,
its ceaseless roar and sleeplessness. Instead
to breathe the bayberry spice and dew of
the sea, to feel the sunshine without infec
tion, after months of weary wakefulness to
feel sleep descend on one's eyelids with tbe
wings of dusk, and to open them at daybreak

Perhaps yon don't know that Boston prides

ports styles direct from fine makers abroad,
and New York importers have told me that
their choicest things are seized directly by
Boston buyers without a chance to open them
in the big city. It always used to be a treat to
run up from New York and see the fine taste
of things In Boston shops, and I kuow you can

other city. They do tell roe kid gloves are

A stylish hat, such as will cost 810 on Twenty
third street, and a private modiste would feel
disgraced to ask less tban $17 for in New York,
was offered for S7 at one of the best milliners
on Washington street, and neither material
nor work could be criticised. Shoes and fine
gloves are cheaper and better in Boston, and I
notice Western ladies find satisfaction in buy
ing unset gems here, and having them mounted
in article devices. They say you get very good
taste without having to pay Union square prices
Good taster Of course you do. Isn't it in
the air, under the very nose or Park street
steeple, brought out in a dozen conservatories,
and anxious colleges, preached in pulpits and
deified at Harvard, that Is L.L.D. 'ified.
Tbe midsummer bonnets, by the way, are
mostly bats, sailor hats In white straw and
white felt for girls, and the new spoon-bills or
poke nats xor women wno Know wnat are Be
coming. THE PEENCH POKES
are very low and small in the crown with a
broad black brim shading the face perfectly
but cut close to the sides which takes away the
cumbrous look of a wide round hat, and is more
dressy for the waterlngplace pier or the casino.
Fine manilla pokes, white, ecru or black are $3
untrimed. The brim is faced in crape, net or
fish net over tbe thin silk, the material coming
beyond tbe edge, or a narrow lace edging sewed
under tbe brim as finish. The trimming is
usually a scarf of bordered crape, black azure
or poppy red, or the new brilliant azalea red,
or black net with narrow lace edge, or white
washing net, of a clear coarse rush, not fish
net, which last is much used on commoner bats.
The scarf or ribbon is tied in two large butter
fly bows in front, that Is bows standing out a
little, not like the meek Alsatian or Black
Forest peasant bow seen on some small bon
nets, and copied from one of the photographs
of last spring's Vienna tragedy, where the
jealous court beauty figures in fancy dress with
this great velvet bow on her head.
It is stylish for small beads with straight
features, which require a close bonnet, still tbe
butterfly or winged bows are becoming in
most cases and most worn. The double stand
ing bow of gauze in front, with one long end of
scarf brought round and pinned carelessly on
the left shoulder, gives a pleasing, summery ef
fect, after the tall crumpled hats piled with
flowers, worn over bare throats, with nursery
frills by way of collars. It Is an ugly sight
these Daked necks, rising from ungraceful
frills copied from a most dowdy period of i-n-gllsb
fashions. A fair throat rising from tbe
guard of an Elizabethan standing ruff or lace
Is artistic and beautiful, but a frock cut lower
In the back of the reck than in front almost,
shows the ugliest line in a woman's neck, and
tbe ugliest women are possessed to wear it. The
high military collar will always be favored by
women who know how to dress. It protects a
good throat and keeps It fair and fresh late in
life, to be shown occasionally in evening dress.
The finest modistes assert their claim to be
known as artists by announcing that they will
copy hats from old portraits, in any style, and
"picture bats," as they are called, add greatly
to the variety of fashions abroad. One may
see the very felt and plumes of a Sir Joshua
Reynolds' portrait on the headof its own great
grand-daughter, or the simpering shepherdess
in the yellow leghorn and pale pluk satin rib
bons, with streamers ayard and a half long, at a
garden party on tbe Thames. By the way, bon
nets are seen at tbe high-priced shops, and
ladies who hare one of these fine old straws
may test their reputation for doing over end
lessly. They come in very quaint styles, with
crape and pongee kerchiefs twisted up for
crowns, ana a huge red rose with very green
leaves ever the face, copying old-fashioned
plates to the life. It is quite certain that we
shall soon see- as rouci- trimming and as many
flowers inside the bonnet as outside, which will
be very trying to complexions.
Vienna now sends some of the most artistic
fashions, competing in general styles against
Paris, as London does In tailor suits and cloaks.

THE BEST BLOUSES, ,
in silk, flannel or lawns, are not shaped to the
waist or gathered in a bolt, but made straight
as a shirt, with half-inch; tucks down the front,
and a belt of material fastened to the middle
of tbe back, to book in front. Hooks and eyes
are on everything instead or buttons; only
sewed alternately, a hook and an eye on the
same side, which prevents coming unhooked at
wrong times. The silk blouses are worn instead
or wraps by young women. The black ones are
best, with tbe finest band-run locks from the
neck, outlining a deep yoke, and tbe fullness
belted In by a loose belt. Tbe Fn-nch surah is
the proper material for these blouses, as it is

enough to form a slight puff, while it may be

becoming to most figures ana should be insisted
on lor stylish dress. In London, women of
fashion wear epaulettes of diamonds, and pas

A TROJAN PRIZE FIGHT.
Vlrull's Description of a Match
' Two Great Staggers.
The first prize fight of which we have any
detailed description, says the New Orleans
Picayune, was specially reported by the great
Latin poet. Virgil, in the fifth book of the
JEneld. When Prince .Eneas was escaping
with his followers from the destruction of
Troy he anchored his fleet off the coast of
Sicily and landed the men and women for a
season or rest. To celebrate the occasion he
organized contests or archers, wrestlers and
boxers, beside a regatta and foot races. The
prize fight was between Entellus, an old
athlete, and Dares, a young champion of the
ring. We are not told If the Marquis of
Queensberry's rules were used or not. but
there were scientiae regulations. Both cham
pions had their fists armed with gloves of raw
hide and lead.
Entellus "stripped of his quilted coat, tis
body bared. compoed of mighty bones and
brawn." while Dari "his brawny back and
ample breast be shows."
Both on tbe tiptoe stand at full extent.
Their arms aloft, their bodies inlr bent;
Their heads from alralne blows thev bear afar,
With clashing gantlets then provoke tbe war.
Before, behind, the blows are dealt: around
Their hollow sides with rattling thumps resound.

Finally the old man grows warm and rushes

HIS NATURAL LIFE.
A Strong Drama, Based on Australian Con
vict Life, at Harris Theater.
An Australian drama that comes highly in
dorsed by the press and public of Gotham will
be presented at Harris' Theater this week,
commencing to-morrow afternoon and every
afternoon and evening thereafter. "His Nat
ural Life" drew many dollars to the box office
of te Windsor Theater, New York, and the
metropolitan press granted it nnstlnted praise.
The play Is founded on Marcus Clarke's novel
or the same name, and illustrates convict life
on Van Dieman's Land. The story, while a ro
mantic on, is within tbe range of human
probability, and, as a drama, does not lose any
or its Interest or force To nse a familiar ex
pression, it is cleverly constructed. Tbe stage
settings, scenery and costumes are all new and
appropriate, and the company is a meritorious
one. "His Natural Life" has in it and abont
it elements that almost guarantee large audi,
ences, and if yon want desirable seats call early
and secure them.

A DOG'S BENEVOLENCE.
He Gives Awar His Own Breakfast to a
A dog In the neighborhood of Manchester
has been distinguishing itself In a marked de
gree. This is not a homeless cur, but a dog in
easy circumstances, and owned by a kind and
indulgent master. Too indulgent the reader
may be disposed to think, when he is told that
every morning at lunch time the creature was
presented with a penny, which It csrried in its
mouth to tbe shop of a baker, and there pur
chased a biscuit It happened, however, that
the baker, meeting tbe owner of the dog, men
tioned to him that it had not been for its bis
cuit lately. This was unaccountable, and the
more so because the animal's master had re
marked that during the past week or so It had
exhibited unusual impatience for lunch time,
endeavoring by caressing and tail-wagging to
obtain Its luncheon money before it was due.
When it at last received it It bad never failed
to run off in a hurry, and after while return
without the coin, seemingly satisfied with its
The next morning after the baker had made
bis communication to tbe gentleman, tbe latter,
after giving bis dog the penny, was curious to
watch it, Andlo and behold! It never went
near the biscuit shop! Without an instant's
delay it hastened to a tripe sellers, and there
boucht and naid for a neat and tempting
skewering of 'paunch." But it was not for its
own eating. With cheerful alacrity it took
the meat in its mouth and made for an empty
house, and to the cellar thereof, and being
closely followed, tbe benevolent creature was
discovered In the act of delivering its precious
pennyworth to a poor, miseranie tyne. a
stranger to the neighborhdod, and apparently
of the "tramp" species. Evidently it bad been
taken HI on the road, and probably would have
died in the cellar into which it had crawled for
shelter, bad It not been for the kind commiser
ation or the other dog. who probably quite by
accident had found it there.

The sights at the seashore are many and

some of whom were strangers In the city.
They had all been In for a long time, and were
taking a final plunge before getting out. The
young man made a dire, and swam out from

man did not hear, and a minute later a woman
about SO years ot age was seen making ber es
cape from the water. It was noticed that she
bad no hair, and held ber arm up over her

though, when he saw that what he had sup

LATINO A GHOST,
Simple Solution of a Mystery That Had
Annoyed Many Persona.
Troy Times. 1
A few years ago a house in tbe central part
ot the State had the reputation of being
haunted, A succession of tenants occupied it
at short intervals, but quickly sought and
found some other abode without a ghostly
occupant. Every few nights, it was said. In a
certain part ot tbe garret of the haunted
bouse tbe wailing of a ghost could be heard:
"Oh, dear! Oh, dear!" as if the spirit was
suffering the most frightful agony. The prop
erty degenerated in value on the owner's hands,
and at length it became almost impossible for
him to find anyone who would live in the place.
Finally a bright thought struck the annoyed
possessor. He would lay that ghost and wind
uplts affairs, or "know the reason wny."
Following tbe noise that night, he came to a
window of tbe garret close to which tbe mourn
ful sound emanated. The mystery was quickly
cleared. Just without stood a tree, one of its
limbs having grown against the side of the
house. Every time the wind blew this project
ing ontshoot would rake tbe clapboards, mak
ing a sound resembling O-o-o-h! when it moved
one war. and d-e-a-rl when it returned. The
next morning a few clips with an ax removed
tbe limb, and tbe ghost returned no more. A
fearless Investigation of this character will lay
ghosts as thistle downs trail with the winds in
the latter part or the summer.
