There is no disposition to revive a year-old

A PLEASANT CUSTOM.
But a pleasanter chase of exclusiveness at
this big residence park over in Jersey may
be given. A girl may eo horseback riding
there all alone, without a groom, if she cares
to. That would be an impropriety in Cen

A new fan carried at a Tuxedo luncheon
simulated a rose. When closed it loeked
like-a bud; unlurled, it exactly resembled a
full-blown rose; and ns they were scented
with the delicious perfume of the queen of
flowers, the illusion was complete. Another
September fact is that the girls often look
like fluffy "lavors" prepared lor a party by
being tied around the middle with ribbon.
The broad sashes, which are more popular
than ever, are now being made of the most
elaborate materials, white satins richly em
broidered and fringed with gold being
very much worn in this fashion. They are
attached, too, on the side with most luxuri
ous fastenings, many of them taking the
iornf of diamond stars or crescents. This
may, perhaps, serve as a hint to intending
bridegrooms on the lookout for novel and
acceptable gi ts for the attendant maids.

of cessation of work, such a change could
not fail to be most inconvenient, but
whether it would be generally beneficial or
the reverse to digestion I am unable to say.
In regard to that important matter there
seems to be room for some improvement on
our present svstem ot meals, for one cannot
but remark the increasing number of people
who appear afraid of their food, and who
look askance at all that is palatable and
tempting. Toung folks especially to whom
for a score of years to come indigestion
should be an unknown terror, are often
quite difficult to cater tor on this account,
shaking their heads with the solemnity of
60, and quoting the doctor's prohibition
over dainties which their more robustly
healthy elders dispose of without hesitation
or stint. This sortof thing isdue in a great
measure to doctors, who have discovered, no
doubt fortunately lor their patients, that
diet is of more importance than medicine,
but who apply the principle rather too in
discriminately." Nobody can truthfully say that the rich
mothers at Tuxedo are careless in the
feeding, or in any other attention, concern
ing their babies. Only last week an expert
medical woman was brought down lrom a
New York infantile hospital to lecture on
nutriment for the youngsters in long clothes,
and the subject is something ot a fad here.

When it comes to the employment and
treatment of nurses, the utmost whimsical
ity is indulged in. and some of the nurse
maids find considerable fortune in their
pretty faces, lor tbey get extravagant wages
if remarkable for beauty, and their occupa

with the babies in their laps. One of the

A Class of Mohammedans Similar to
Honks of Christian Countries.
THE! AKE NUMBERED BY MILLIONS
Olirer Optic Tells of an Interesting
Meeting in Constantinople.
HOW THEY PREPARE FOE PARADISE
I WBJTTEN FOK THE DISPATCH.!
Dervishes in Mohammedan countries
form a class by themselves, though tbey
do not entirely withdraw from commun
ication with their fellow-beings. The word
means "poor," which indicates the condition
in which they are to keep themselves in
working out a state of sanctity. They are
something like monks in Christian countries
and appear to be actuated by the same mo
tives. They are divided into ordeis or com
munities, each working out their own salva
tion in accordance with their ow idea.
Some think they are to dance themselves
into paradise, which even some good Chris
tians would think was an agreeable way to
do it, and others expect to yell and howl
themselves into the kingdom, which maybe
pleasant to the devotees, but not to those
who have not been broken in.
Among the Arabs of various regions who
are Mohammedans is a class of the same kind,
called fakirs. It is said that there are about
3,000,000 of these, of various orders, some of
wnom practice revolting 'rites and ceremo
nies. Oar guide, Dimetri, told me that the
dervishes of Constantinople formerly cut
themselves with knives and otherwise man
gled their persons, precisely as monks and
others practiced various ansterities in the
belief that they were acceptable sacrifices to
the deity. The Sultan lorbade the custom
in his dominions. But the life and devotion
of the dervishes win tne respect and rever
ence of the people, and it is said that some
royal princes aud even Sultans have been
members of the fraternity. Each body or
monastery Is governed by a sheik, or elder,
and he is always a venerable, old man.
These orders date back in their origin many
hundred years. The dervishes re
nounce earthly joys, and devote them
selves in poverty and retirement to their re
ligion, and the principle is the same as that
which actuates the nuns and sisters in our
A CONVENIENT CUSTOM.
The principal monastery in Constantino
ple is in the Rue de Pera, though there are1
others, and it stands a little back from the
street in a courtyard. Dimetri produced
slippers enough to supply the party, and we
put them on ever our boots. The- idea is
that the dirt from outside, or the sole of a
Christian foot, must not come in contact
with any part of a holy place. But the true
believers have to take the same precautions,
and I noticed in. a Tartar city that gentle
men wore overshoes, apparently because they
could bdconvemently slipped off when the
wearer went to church. A porter at the door
takes charge of the boots, shoes, canes and
umbrellas, and exacts a small fee tor the
service, as is done in most of the picture gal
leries, museums and theaters in Europe.
The main building of the monastery was
in the shape of an octagon, and the audience
chamber would have made a capital circus.
A sort of fence inclosed all the space on the
ground floor except a width of about ten
feet next tp the walls. All around the
apartment was a gallery, supported by col
umns, for spectators, as well as the outside
space below. In the rear, upstairs, the
space was latticed off for women, who are
permitted to see, but not to be seen. The
tront of the gallery was for the music and a
reader, for one can hardly imagine that
even devotees would think of dancing with
out music. Visitors were required to seat
themselves Turkish fashion, and be as un
comfortable as possible.
The dancing floor was smooth and clean,
and wonld have been creditable to any ball
room. Opposite the entrance a praver car
pet was spread for the sheik, and he squatted
upon it looking as solemn as though he had
been about to deliver a sermon in St. Sophie
instead of looking after a dance. The der
vishes entered singly or in knots as suited
them, and seated themselves on the floor
until'about 20 of them had gathered. They
were dressed in loose brown robes, reaching
down to their ankles, and were all as solemn
as the leader in the long white beard. The
hat was of the shape of an inverted flower
pot of the same color as the robe.
The venerable sheik began to repeat In a
low and mumbling tone some sentences from
the Koran. Then the dervish in the front
gallery read, or rather intoned, from a book.
Being no theologian, I could not understand
a nora of it The sheik then talked to him
self awhile, apparently; and the dervishes,
beaded by a manager, marched several times
around the circus, halting and bowing low
to the venerable head at the prayer carpet
The bowing and saluting was somewhat lu
dicrous, and recalled the evolutions of a
country muster. Two of the devotees, with
their arms crossed on their breasts, bowed
facing each other. Then they wheeled in
good order and saluted the next couple, and
the process was repeated all along the line.
When the last of the bowing had been
completed the music struck up a monot
onous tune, sounding like a banjo and some
other instrument. The head of the column
of dervishes edged out into the middle of
the room and began to whirl, and he could
not have done any better if he had called it
waltzing. The others followed his example
in good-order and without haste until all of
them where whirling gracelnlly in two cir
cles around the inclosnre. As'they entered
upon the exciting part of the proceedings
they divested themselves of the heavy
brown robes and came forth in . white
spencers and slfirts, the latter reaching al
most to the floor and being dense enough for
a Broadway belle. For half an hour they
kept it up without any break or appear
ance of latigue. There were no col
lisions, not even of the skirts; though they
were ail spread out as in "making cheeses."
The movement is quite as graceful as that
ot au accomplished waltzer, is in perfect
time, and there is no hurry or confusion for
an instant. The devotees are barefoot.
They keep the lelt foot- on the floor all the
time, throwing the right foot over the instep
of the left The arms are elevated a little
above the top of the head, with the palms
of the hands spread out. The whole thing
is rather poetic and very graceful. I have
no idea uhatit all means, though I heard
some one say it was an imitation of the
movements of the heavenly bodies; but I do
not believe it, for I doubt if these devotees
are well posted in astronomy.
THE HOWLING jDERVISHES.
It was not till Sunday, and a very rainy
one, that we found an opportunity to see
the howling dervishes. We wandered a
long distance lrom J'era, ana when we
reached the monastery Dimetri said he had
chosen this particular place to show off the
devotees of this order because their rites
were less repulsive than those of some
others. The building was no better than
an ordinary barn, and not half as good as
many we could find at home. The porter
was there to take care of our things and
take his fee, and he enlarged his occupation
by selling oriental confrcts, which wonld
make an American child sick. Dimetri led
the way to the chapel, or whatever it was,
an unpainted room about 40 feet long and
half as wide. Across the end was a gallery,
where we were dnly installed and seated on
sheepskins, which gave us an ugly vision of
A dozen men were seated on the floor of
the chapel, behaving themselves as though
something was the matter with them. They
wore no peculiar dress, and looked like the
men in the street One wore the tattered
uniform of a soldier. All of them were
.ragged and dirty, and they appeared to be
running me poverty itica lor an it was worth.
Some of them were seated in a group on a
prayer carpet, chanting a monotonous strain,
voning ana ewaying wuaiy as tney sang.
The burden of their song was a perpetual
repetition of the words "laiilah-lllan-Ia."
On the first syllable they bent forward with
ajerlqutthe second they straightened up;
at the third ihey throw their heads back,
and so on. The movements are convulsive,
and as they proceed they warm up and their
tones become wild and savage. Now and
then comes a yell in concert like "Hooi"
but it is really Ta.hu," ''Allah" or "Je
hovahl" with the accent on the last syllable.
As nearly as I could ascertain, this sing
song is a
i task to repeat the name of Allah
s, and the "boo" is the tally mark.
-WORSHIPING IN EARNEST.
Some of the dervishes then ranged them
selves in a' line against the farther wall of
the chapel. Then tbey began to sway their
heads up and down, and right and left, with
a heavy breathing sound,like a man chop
ping wood. It was a sort of desperate
grunt, which they intensified and made
more guttural, while tney swayed their
heads and shoulders with a violence which
amounted to ' fury. The gwnts and the
motions seemed to indicate the most agoniz
ing sensations, and nil tEe devotees became
very pale and ghastly. We were aston
ished that some of them did not drop sense
less on the floor. While the party near the
wall had been going through these gyra
tions another paity had seated themselves
on a praying carpet and kept up the old
refrain, sometimes gesticulating at the more
At last it looked as though tha fanatics
intended to shake their heads off if they
could, and their guttural spasms became
more disgusting. An old man repeated
some sentences, and the others yelled
"Yahu" so fiercely that a couple of ladies
retired in terror from the gallery, though
their guide tried to persuade them that
there was no danger. But the ceremonies
were finished, and the exhausted devotees
dropped upon the floor to recover their breath
and strength. It was a poor cause in which
to waste a man, nut tney believe that para
dise is their reward.
Alter the rites were finished, a very aged
sheik came in, and stood in the middle of
the floor. Then the people came in, bring
ing children with them, to be healed of
their maladies. A little child was placed
on the floor, and the sheik put bis foot on it,
which seemed to afford the mother a great
deal of comfort A cripple then took the
same position on the floor, and the old sheik
actually stepped upon him with both feet.
The patient did not cry out, or make other
sign, and I have no doubt he believed the
medicine wonld do him good. Others were
simply touched, or treated in some other
manner, and all of them seemed to be en
tirely satisfied with the treatment
Our party left the monastery and so did
those who had been on the stage of action.
It was stilbjraining and the poor dogs were
still exercising their ingenuity without suc
cess to warm and dry themselves. If the
Sultan Ib not disposed to abolish or ma
terially change the programme of the howl
ing dervishes, it would be an act of hu
manity to gather up the dogs and "cut their
tails off close behind the ears."
