though .we were booked here for only
one concert, we have been so earnestly

concert takes place there, was down at
Cardigan lust evening to get our pro

forms (is that we shall have another
crowded house, and that among our
auditors will be the big man of Mon
mouthshire, Colonel Mni'K'un, of Itu
Jiena castle, member of 'parliament lor
that district, and General Huberts, the
hero of the siege of Carduhau. These,
with the Old Lord Tredeger. who is one
of the three last survivors of the fam
ous battle of iialaklavu, and the other
gentry, who will, of course, follow
their leaders, besides those coming with
the American consul from Cardiff and
Newport, will unmistakably Insure us
a cultured and brilliant assemblage for
our last concert here.
Fishguard, Oct. 19. We gave a good
concert this afternoon and give one
here this evening; as well. Took a drive
along the coast from Cardigan to this
place, and saw some beautiful views of
the sea,- and the hills rising from the
shore. There were some line old cas
tles, too, which we saw on the way,
but, really, we have seen so ninny old
castles that we are rather surlViied
with them; they are not Interesting to
us at all any more. But something
which we did look at with a great deal
of Interest, on the way, was a tall,
slender stone in a churchyard in an out-
of-the-way place, which, from the
hieroglyphics on it, can be proved to he
aver S.uotf years old. The coachman
mopped long enough for us all to get a
good look at It. i
Grand Hotel, Swansea, Oct. 20. We
had a very successful concert at Fish
guard last night again. The Welsh
Ladles' choir had been there only two
weeks ago and given a concert
and the resident manager was not very
sanguine of u big meeting, but was
agreeably disappointed, for' the house
w us crowded. It was a drizzly day and
we all felt as If w would rather, like
the cross-patch of tradition, "sit by the

we ever sang to, nevertheless.

that I'canuot begin to tell half of the
courtesies we have received: I will only
ry to- got lit a few things which are so
Jresh In my memory that 1 need not
try hard to remember. In-. Fairy, who
lias arrived in Wales from his Amer
lean tour only a fortnight ago, as Boon
ti he' heard that we were in his vlcln
lty, wrote a most kind letter about us
to the people, of South' Wales. I had
the honor tonight at the Newport con
cert of being presented to him. When
I told him that 1 was a pupil of his
former pupil, Dr. Mason, of Wilkes
Uarre, he was very much pleased, and
shook hands again for my teacher's
sake as well as for my own.
: The concert tonight was a great and

and socially. All the grandees of the

At the end of the first part of th

with a big, heavy chain around his

a lovely little speech of an appreciative

lhat In compliment of the presence
there of Dr. Parry, the great composer
and musician of all Wales, und one of
the foremost in the world today, Mr.
Anwyl and I would sing the duet from
his opera, "Hloderln," accompanied by
the honored composer himself! My,
how proud w both were! We never
did It belter, I . can assure you, and
though the audience had heard It often
and often before, we were so well ap
preciated that we hud to sing it over
ugulu to his accompaniment. That wus
an event which I shall always remem
ber and always be proud of, and 1 am
sure Mr. Anwyl will be, too, for we
both did our level best, as you may rest
assured we did not wish to sing his own
composition for him and not do It full
Justice. After the concert was over the
stage was Invaded by hosts of lovely
people who came up to meet and con
gratulate us all, -the lord mayor and
his ludy Introducing many people to us.
He is going to be photographed with
us tomorrow, with his furred cloak of
oftlce and all the rest of the funny
things these dignitaries wear over here.
Miss Drlscoll and her sister, Amelia
Dilscoll, who iicuupliM.1 the stage with
us tonight, and who played some of the
nccompanlments, are to be taken with
us us well. Tomorrow afternoon we
are all going down to Cardiff to the
American cosulate, where a dinner Is to
be given for us, 'and some time tomor

attend the military bazaar, to which wer
have been very cordially invited. Then

Stevens to our party Up at Treherbert.
In the Khondda valley. We ladles can
not go to that as we must prepare for
our Journey to London the next day, so
we shall send the gentlemen of the
party to represent us.
Speaking of the military bazaar, I
saw some very pretty soldiers the other
day, marching from barracks down to
it. .My attention was very strongly at
tracted to the regiment of Welsh Hus
sars, the crack regiment of the Wales
province, and the buttons and gold
braid and fur and tassels which they
had on their persons was marvelous to
inc. It must take one of them longer
to dress than the veriest society belle
in the world. Ititt the great sight con
nected with' this regiment was the
goat. This big. handsome animal wau
presented by Her Majesty, the Queen,
to this regiment many years ago, and
since that time has been In many bat-
tics with the regiment, of which it Is a
member.. It always walks at the head

These three wonderful men were all

this fact, and these townsmen, you may
be sure, 1 almost envy the friends of
Mr. Kvans, Mr. Anwyl, Mr. Blackwood

Why s there such n. deen-rnoted

the new boy at Dr. Candy's school, but
at "Weedon Grossmlth. the lean and

exhibition '.' If he did, I think you huve

the other way with enual force? All

his natural dignity by being Kicked

does not Mr. Irving gain in dignity of
manhood when he merges his person

would think, gain in those very rmpects
in which the player of humiliating roles
loses. But the prejudice, old and Im
placable, does not recognize this dis

loss of Identity, and this, us 1 have said,
is the bedrock of the whole prejudice.

euted one reason why Mr. Potter should
be permitted to remain on earth. Of
the other similar reasons there Is one
worth noting. Mr. Potter is good,
ls sincere and modest and gay,
does not know the New Woman und he
does not write about her. Her little
moral discrepancies do not concern
him. She may go Into u lonely corner
half a dozen times a day to pull up her
little enfranchised soul by the roots to
see how it ls growing. Paul Potter no
more thinks of spying cm her than he
would have thought of spying ort the
Duchess of Salisbury upon a memor
able occasion. v
We who are weary, very weary, of
the "New Woman" of the Hop of her

little tongue love Paul M. Potter for

mit a Tunqueruy first, second or third.
Just every day girls; rather foolish,

Mr. Potter is not profound; he ls not
bitter; but he Is gay with the gayety
of the llflles and sixties. Rather thread

And so with a full sense of my re

A singular coincidence of stage com
edy and real tragedy occurred at the
opening of Marie Burmugh's dramatic
company in Detroit the other ' night.
Minnie Monk, as one of the characters,
has these words: "My husband is not
i dead, but mad." She holds the stuge
at this point with u single companion.
j As she reached' these lines her utter-
unce failed, she hesitated twice In the
delivery and went to the prompt side I
for assistance, while the audience tit-j

telegraphic messuge which rend: -"Your .

Make way for a new triumph of stage
mechanics. In James W. Harklns' "A.

sugar cane crusher, full plsse, and a

so as to show the Moors Of the structure,
the elaborate machinery, with- shifting
platforms, murderous-looking cog
wheels and Intricate gearing being
above, while below the motive power in
the shape of two white horses (real)

makes the whole thing move. For the

done with a sugar-cane crusher a vil

for $11 -They Vcre Not Properly
I'ndded ''Where the :iiicf Wear
trttd Tear Took Place,"
Kxhiblt A in Justice John FntterKon's
'ourt, in Brooklyn, next week, will
show why Miss Sylvia Rnuert iult the
ress reformer), and why Tailor Ralph
i. Clark has made his lust pair of
bicycle bloomers, says the New York
Sun. It will show In detail the trouble
between two long guttering people
roubh? thlit caused an !l law suit,
which Miss Hogert says she will tarry
to the I'nlted States Supreme Court If
"If X cun't hae hl miners as 1 want
them. 1 won't have them at all, and no
tailur can make me tako them," is Miss
Miss Sylvia Rogert Is twenty years
Id. She is a pretty brunette, short but
graceful, with lurgc brown eyes, which
shone with anger us bh.- explained her
trials as a dress Tel'Onuer. She lives at
the S.jtiora flats. No. 20:! West Four
teenth street. She bclonts to a lam II v
well known In theutrlcal und musical
Ircleti. When she came out oh u wheel
she found' hers-. If embariasj.ed by llow
Ing skirts. When her dress got eiitiing-
d w ith the spnkes i f her v. heel her
attention was turned to dress reform.
One day lust summer, whll? whirling Up
Flat bush avenue, in brooklyn, she saw
this sign: "Ladles' Bicycle Bloomers a
Miss Bogert stopped the wheel In
i-otit of the sign and tuld Kaph A.
'lurke, the tailor, that she wanted some
"All right." said Mr. Clark, "that Is
our specialty, and we can ill you out.,,
Rut 1 wutit them diffe rent from the
bloomers woru by other girls," suid
Miss Bogert, and then she proceeded to
explain that she wanted these queer
garments .made of navy blue
hcuyy sterm kcikc. She Insisted thut, i
for satisfactory reasons, the bloooiners '
Should be lined with chumols leather,
and that In place of buttons and hooks l
there- should be laces on each side to
hold the bloomeiN to her body. She
wanted ions' strips of broad black braid
on the- sides and four pockets, including
one on each hip. Finally, she was very
particular In explaining that there
shutdd be an extra heavy lining- of
chamois leather in thut part of the
bloomers where the exigencies of wheel
ing demanded extra strength.
Tailor Clark thought thut the con
tract was an easy one, and he told Miss
Bojtert that the bloomers could be made
for $11. .
"Xnw the next step is to get a correct
measurement." he said.
.u uoyei i suiu noiuin. mne uia
not know what to say, because she had
never t'uron measured for bloomer by a
man. When the tailor produced u tape
measure sh tare a quick gasp, but
grew composed when the tailor said:
Vou can just step behind that cur
tain and measure yourself."
fche followed a few simple instruc
tions given by the tullor and went
home, tin August 'i the bloomers arriv
ed at the Sonora Mats. On the next day
the bloomers were returned to the tailor
with this note:
liear Mr. Clark: Kindly note that there
Is an evident discrepancy between my
measurements .and the indescribable
things that youavc sent me. i also call
your attention to the fact that you have
not sufficiently strensthtened the parts
where the chief wear and tear will take
place. Sincerely, Sylvia Uogert.
Mr. Clark changed the measurements
of the (torments nnd added more pad
ding. Hack came the bloomers from
the Sonora Mats with this note pinned
on the hip poeket: ,
Hear Mr. Clark: I object to looking
like a contemporary of llendrlx Hudson.
.Make me look like a modern American'
woman, please. Sincerely,
Mr. 'Clark made one more effort to
make Miss Bogert "look like an Ameri
can woman," but the bloomers wire re
turned with another note:
liear Mr. Clark: 1 am ufriad that you
will think thut 1 urn haru to please, hut
the bloomers are somewhat tight where
they should be loose, and absurdly louse
where no fulness is needed. I am tired of
complulning, and unless you can make
them to my satisfaction 1 shall not take
them, t'leutie look up my measurements
once more. Sincerely,
Mr. Clark Is a patient man, and,
although quite as tired of hearing Miss
Bogert's comolutnts as she was of
complaining, he made more changes
and asked Miss Bogert to men
sure the bloomers for the purpose of
unifying her measurements. , She re
plied by returning the bloomers uguln,
and writing a lot of criticisms about
pleats, g'ires, darts, and so forth. Then
Tullor Clajk got angry. He hud lost
several pounds and aged so rapidly that
his friends became alurmed. He threw
the bloomers in a corner of his sture and
took down the sign from the window.
There would be 110 more specialties In
the line of bloomers at his place.
He then notified Miss Bogert that she
would have to pay for the bloomers
whether she liked them or not. Miss
Bogert wrote back thut Mr. Clark could
give them to some one else; she would
not have them. Mr. Clark consulted
his lawyer, John A. Anderson, and
begau a suit aguitist Miss Bogert to re
cover til. the price of the bloomers. The
papers were served yesterday.
Miss- Bogert told !, reporter last eve
ning that the bloomers were all w rong,
"in the first place," she said, "they did
not tit. They were too tight where--well,
they did not tit at all. 1 suppose
Mr. (Turk thought I would take off my
skirls when 1 made the measurements
behind the curtain; but 1 didn't do It.
Then, again, they were not lined as I
ordered. Vou see. that chamois leather
lining was my own idea. 1 wanted to
wear tlie bloomers in the fall und Well,
1 did not want any more clothes Inside
of them, thut's all. Then the lining was
so arrunged that you see this ls a deli
cate subject- but my letter to Mr. Clark
explains that. But l am going to stick
to Skirts for bicycling, and I am done
with dress reform."
