" . Fashion has decreed that ocean-bathing Is
'j ' , no longer "tho thing" to do. Tot so hcalth-
1 fnl and Invigorating a custom will be long In
! ; , wholly dying out.
j Hero at Shelter Island , where two liun-
< > * dred cottages and two largo hotels people
I - -this little paradise with at least eight liun-
, dred souls during the "season , " the beach Is
' well crowded with merry bathers every fore
noon.
Bitting In the pavilion and watching them
sport In the briny wave , I could not help
wondering why Mrs. Urundy , who Is so par
ticularly critical In some things , should have
v so long Ignored the vulgarities of the ocean
* < bath. Here men and women , young girls
j and youths half nude , and with the covered
portions of tliair bodies plainly outlined by
their clinging wet robs , mix and mingle and
Indulge In familiarities which would not bo
tolerated on land.
A pretty younit lady svfam from the beach
out to the diving pavilion yesterday. Then
she clambered up on the pavilion with ten or
twelve others of both sexes. Here , In full
light ot all the spectators on shore and all
her companions , she lilted her short skirts a
trifle and adjusted the elastic of her long
Stocking , which had become loosened with
the effort ot swimming. Shu did this with
tbe utmost nonchalance ; yet Just imagine
the sensation It would cause If she should
perform this same harmless little toilet act
on the veranda , lu presence of the same
audience I She would be cut dead by every
woman , and quite likely requested to leave
tbe hotel. Yell doubt It nny one beside
myself noticed or commented on the little
performance It Is such an overy-day occur
rence. 1 do not wish to seem hypercritical ,
and 1 belicvo 1 have never been called over
particular or prudish , hut 1 can't help won-
faring why the same act Is deemed proper In
one plnce and -vulgar lu another.
Only last week , I heard a young miss de
claring she would not dance with any man
, unless ho were n relative or very dear trlond.
i "I don't like nnd won't tolerate any man In
such close proximity to me , " she said , "un-
i less he Is a relative/ '
I Yesterday , 1 saw her swim to tbe shore
I with a male escort who was not a relative.
and it seemed to uio the situation held a
deal moro of unpleasantly familiarity
tgood any waltz ever contained. She sat
down In the sand , and her escort leaned on
his elbow close beside her. Ho wore a single
f very thin garment , which exposed his
brawny arms nnd bony neck and uulovely
> ankles aim feet. The single garment clung
i elose to his body , and displayed his entire
anatomy with unblushing distinctness. Her
' pwn pretty arms were bare to the shoulder ,
and as she sat curled up In the sand , ono
could train a very pleasing outline of her
graceful limbs and rounded shape. But
again 1 fell to making comparisons.
"Suppose. " I said , mentally , "that young
j lady should meet that young gentleman In
tbe halls of the hotel arrayed precisely as he
Is now she would run screaming to her
fc room , Indignant nnd alarmed. It he should
approach her In that attire on the lawn and
i attempt to sit down beside her , she would
, call a policeman to arrest him. Queer , Is
> not UT"
Some of the young ladles who have heard
that bathing Is not as fashionable ns It used
to be unwilling to be Independent , yet
/ more unwilling to abandon the delight of a
[ v dsliy swim choose an afternoon hour when
other people nre napping , and paddle about
In pretty costumes with no male spectators ,
or at least only an accidental one.
[ These were the young ladles who declared
they would not be Introduced to or dance
with any strangers at the hop given In honor
of a Yachting club recently.
v This led n happily married matron to discuss -
* cuss the proprieties with me.
"I like to see girls prudent , " she sald"but
It snoms to me young people do not have
quite as good tlmrs as they used to at these
. resorts. No matter how well recommended
< A a young man may bo , some ot these very par-
tlcular girls declare they will not dance with
any one save an Intimate friend.
"it Is commendable no doubt and yet , "
he added , with an arch laugh "why. I
/ shouldn't have been John's wife to-day It 1
had been so careful. I danced with him the
'first night I met him , and we found we kept
stop s nicely we concluded to glide through
life together. I am sure young folks had a
better time In those years than they do now ,
and 1 really don't think any moro misfor
tunes befell them than In those conventional
flays. "
Last evening the children wore dancing
and 1 overheard an amusing conversation
between a trio at the parlor door. A tiny
young gallant In long stockings was begging
two smaller belles not over ten years ot ago
to let him Introduce a friend of his a nlno-
year-old boy , who had arrived that day with
his parents.
' "Oli. but we couldn't think of dancing
With him , " said the two haughty young
misses. "Wedon't wo don't know him at
all , you seel"
"Oh pshaw , now I say come let's make
up a set and nave a good tlmo , " pleaded the
boy. "He's a good dancer , and lie wants to
get acquainted you know. .Let me introduce
Elm. "
. "Woll but really wo cannot dance with
tuch a stranger , the girls insisted , and Iwent
> - to my room to ponder over the wonderful
prudence and decorum of the growing gener-
r ftlon. ELLA WHEKLEU WILCOX.

The directors of the Omaha base ball elub
held their regular weekly meeting at Penroso
tc Hardln's sporting headquarters last evenIng -
Ing , nnd from all reports had a regular mon
key nnd parrot time. It seems , ns the BKK
has previously spcclllcly stated , the manage
ment Isn't swimming along as hrrmonlously
ns It might. It now turns out that the con
stitution and by-laws ns well as some of the
books have mystcrlonsly disappeared , and
that some undeslraqlo trouble must be ex
perienced In straightening out the financial
condition of things. Who Is to blame Is not
deflnntely known , but there Is no doubt of Its
pclng a case of too much management.

Now York Irishmen Talk.
Nr.w YOIIK , August 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the BIE. : | The news from London
that the government has nt last proclaimed
the Irish National league created intense
excitement among the different classes of
Irishmen In this city. They say that the gov
ernment plainly sees that a majority of the
English voters have turned against them ,
nnd they might as well have the satisfaction
of doing as much as they can against Ireland
while they remain In ollice. The same ob
servation applies to those whom Gladstone
refused to call unionists , but persists In callIng -
Ing "dissident liberals. " One thing seems
certain from the collective opinion of those
whom your reporter talked with from
fcnlan nnd dynamiter down to conserva
tive members of the parliamentary fund
association , li'licro never was a proclama
tion of a national organization issued before
in Ireland which will meet with such de
termined resistance as this one. They say
that it will bo simply impossible to put down
the national league ; that If money flowed Into
Ireland before from this country in thous
ands , it will bo certain to do so now In In
creased volume.
Michael Giblln , vice-president of the Homo
mile elub , said : "As them Is no reason to
doubt that the government Is determined not
alone to put down the league but to put It
down with an iron hand , you are certain to
see bloothhed nnd slaughter more horrltylng
than what wns witnessed during the worst
days of the Forster regime. The result will
bo a more determined and general resistance
to evictions. The stubborn tights all around
to keep the nationalist mpctlncs < golnff in
si ) I to of the well appointed armies of Great
Britain will be terrible. "

Ibo Wonderful Development Which
TtatB Thriving Hoctlon of Town
Is Now Maklfi/c.In / Excellent
Style.
Very llttln has bean said nbout Uio
work that is actually progressing ut
South Omaha at tlio present time. So
many now enterprises are being brought
forward and so many largo establish
ments from the cast are socking loca
tions there , that thu minds of the people
are tilled constantly with what is coming
and they lose sight of what is really
being dono. Aside trom the work being
carried on in the packing houses already
established , which includes the slaugh
tering of from three to ilvo thousand
hogs per iltvy , besides cattle , and in the
other manufacturing establishments ,
such as the brewery , carriage and sleigh
factory , etc. , there is a great amount of
work going on which receives but little
attention. One of the first things to at
tract the attention of the visitor to South
Omaha , is the long procession of
teams tiling by the Exchange building ,
A little inquiry will gain the informa
tion that these teams , 100 in number , are
employed to grade down the hills west of
the exchange building , and to 111 ! in the
low grounds adjoining the railroad
tracks. Over $0,000 willbe expended in
this grading alone. The removal of the
hills is to make room for the extension of
thu yards , and packing houses , and the
filling in of ths lower ground is to pro
vide moro room for trackage facilities.
This work is under the superintondoncy
of Mr. Dorrnncc , a woll-kiiown railroad
man , and the plans which hu is now
carrying out include twelve miles of side
tracks. The laying of these trucks will
cost an additional forty or fifty thousand
dollars. This docs not include the cost
of the three mogul engines which are
now being built for the stock yard com
pany , to bo in readiness by the time the
tracks are completed , in sixty to ninety
days. Besides the grading being done
by the stock yards company , many teams
are employed by the city and county au-
theritios and by the different railroad
companies , malting a total of about 300
teams engaged in grading within a
radius of'about a milo from the exchange
building.
Another big enterprise , and one which
usually calls forth from visitors the
exclamation , "what's that ? " is the sewer
which is being constructed from the little
lake , near the exchange building , to the
river. Beginning at the lake it extends
south along the old creek bed for a dis
tance of about half a mile. This part of
the sewer , ton feet high and eight feet
wide , is made by the driving of a double
row of piles , drivenfouf feet apart ,
heavily timbered and covered with plank.
When the grading Is completed it will be
entirely covered > from view. This
section of seJwen is already
nearly finished. . _ At a point
a short distance south of the Swift pack
ing house it will connect with the tunnel
which is being constructed through the
hills to the river. A large force of men
r.ro already at W9tk qpon the tunnel ,
having started in at the , river , it being
necissary to begin at the lower end to seas
as to lurnish an outlet' for the water ns
the wont progresses. 'iuo tunnel itself
which will bo constructed of brick , will
be five feet in the clear , and at tl.e high
est part of the hill-will , bc eighty feet bis-
low the surface. 'I'ho-total length of the
sewer will bu about22,000 feet , and will
furnish drainage for the stock yards and
all the packing houses. < .
Swift & Go's packing house is well
under way , there being a force of 150 men
employed on the work at the present
time , and as soon as the work has pro
gressed a little farther this force will bo
doubled. The beef house , to bo completed
so as to bo used in October , is 250x289
feet and four stories in height. The work
men are now engaged on the second
story of this building and push
ing forward as rapidly as pos
sible. The foundations for the
other buildings are being laid ,
The tank , oil , bono and fertilizing house
will bo 75x300 foot and four and five
stories higo. The hog house , which will
bo situated close bv the beef house , will
bo 200x2-10 feet.
a four-story building , -
The foundations for the engine and
boiler houses are already laid , the size of
the former being40x70 feet on the ground ,
and of the latter 40x05 foot. These build
ings will be of brick , with the exception
of the beef house , whoso upper stories
will bo frame. A car and repair
house will bo added as soon
as the other buildings are completed.
Altogether there will DO an expenditure
of from a quarter to a half million of del
lars.
lars.Armour
Armour & Co. have already com
menced work on the extension to their
packing house , and there are now about
150 men engaged in making the neces
sary excavations. As lias already been
mentioned , this now addition will have a
capacity for the handling of from 3,000 to
4,000 hogs per day , and will be the
largest house thus far located here.
There is a great amount of work in
progress of minor importance to that
mentioned , but which , in the aggregate ,
would ronko a big showlnff. Among
other thinirs , the stock yards company
have a largo force of builders at work
upon a barn which will bo 150x30 feet.
It will bo of brick , with iron roof and
doors , and lire-proof throughout. This
will bo used for storing the hay and feud
needed at the yards , and will have cost
when completed § 0,000. Workmen have
just put the finisning touches upon a
stand pipe that is 20 feet in diameter and
75 feet in height , and that cost ? 0fiOO.
Two companies are engaged in putting
down artesian wells , one at the Fowlur
packing house , and the other at the pnmp
house near the exchange building. The
latter has already reached a depth of 700
feet , and a good ( low , of * water has been
obtained , but the bcfrwg will not be stop

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.
Destruction by Fire In the Western
Suburbs Last Night.
At about 11:30 : last night during a lull
in the thunder storm a bolt of lightning
struck the barn in the rear of the
promise.1 ! occupied byV. . D. Sloan ,
( of Sloan , Johnson & Co. ) at the
corner of Catherine and Mason
streets. The ( structure Instantly
broke into flame and the tire wns almost
immediately communicated to the car
penter shop of George Woodard adjoin
ing. The fire ruado a great display
against the low-hanging clouds and in
the apprehension of a considerable con
flagration , a double alarm was turned
in. The locality , lying ns it does ,
two blocks west of llanscouio
park is attainable only , by way of Lcnv
cnworth street , but was almost utterly
inaccossablo last night , owlnp to the
heavy ram which had churned the un-
pavcd roadway into an impassable strip
of quagmire. Several pieces of appa
ratus responded to the alarm , but
the now chemical engine was alone able
to finish the trip and that after such
painful and delaying efforts that the lire
had burned itself out when the scene was
reached. The remaining apparatus with
drew after sticking fast and falling into
ruts a few times. No. 4 hose cart was
pushed on , however , until within n half
milo of the lira when the wheels sunk
over the hubs and the floundering horses
could move their load no moro. The
mon and horses waded out , leav
ing the truck until morning.
Mr. Sloan's barn was stored with a
number of wagons and a largo Quantity
of furniture and implements so that his
loss will reach $3,000 covered by nbout
$2,000 insurance.
Woodard's carpcntor shop shared the
total destruction entailing upon the
owner tin uninsured loss of about $5,000.
Mr. Sloan's residence narrowly es
caped the flames and was saved only
through the devoted efforts of his neigh
bors who faced both the fire and storm to
form a bucket brigade.

A PARACHUTE CRAZE.
Qulncjr , III. , Unno Daft , or Nearly So ,
Over Baldwin's Great Feat ,
Chicago Herald : Quincy is a veritable
city of parachutes over since Tom Bald
win made his great leap on the Fourth ol
July from a balloon at a height of 5,000
feet. Parachutes are in everything , even
dangling from the telephone and tele
graph wires , new brands of goods are
called "parachute , " and tno grand army
of cranks is engaged in cudgelling their
poor brains wherewith to cast Baldwin's
unparalleled performance completely in
the shado. A consumptive-looking black
smith , Bartholomew by name , is re
ported to have sold out his business
in order to devote his time and
moans to the building of u balloon
from which ho intends to jump at an
altitude of two miles , as nearly as ho cau
guess. A physician nam Ifonney has
also caught the craze , and is now design
ing and constructing a balloon and para
chute , which are to bo built , as ho claims
on. strictly scientific principles , ant
wherewith ho hopes to show in midair
not only his own shapely form , but the
difference between luck Haldwln and
science Ills owu achievements. Many
others are engaged upon similar schemes ,
and there H sincere talk of founding a
xirauhuto club , some of thu enthusiasts
relieving that pnrachuts will furnish
eventually the first stop toward aerial lo
comotion.
But "parachuting" is by no moans confined -
fined to the solcnttols and cranks of the
city. Every other boy in the city has the
craze , nnd it is no uncommon thing for a
i > oy to jump from the roof of a pin/.zn or
an upper window by the aid of a huge
umbtolla , which occasionally turns inside
out and lets the youth down with a speed
that is not enjoyed by by the infantile
cronaut. Then the boys have invented
toy parachutes , some of paper , others of
jloth. These are caught at the corners
by strings which converge to a
muill weight. By throwing them
into the air they spread out and sail
smoothly down. So general has this
practice become that parachutes hang
on wires nnd trees nil over the city. Of
course there have been numerous ncci-
lents and there will bo moro broken
limbs and heads before the youth of the
town emulate Baldwin. Perhaps before
the surgeons cease reaping their harvest
among the boys the undertakers will be
gin reaping theirs among she adult para
chutists.
Baldwin has been the lion of the day ,
weekend month in Quincy , and is now
in Chicago arranging for another jump
to bo mauo hero. Ills Fourth of July
plunge did him up for a week , for , al
though ho appeared all right , ho was
dazed and so sore that locomotion was
difficult. In tao meantime honors wcro
flying in noon him. Society friends dec
orated him with a medal , and others out
side the veil on Saturday presented him
with another medal-tho size of a silver
pad. This latter was studded with diamonds
mends , nnd in case of necessity will bo
highly respected by his "uncle. " To cap
the climax another "set" of friends on
Thursday presented him with a check
for f 100. In presenting the money a
prominent attorney of this city said
among other things :
"The most casual observer cannot fail
to catch a glimpse of the great Held of
research and discovery lying In your
pathway. The countless ships that shall
sail with electric speed through the
trackless air of the twentieth century ,
laden with human and commercial
freight , may owe to the discovery of
Thomas S. Baldwin the principles that
shall insure their triumphant success.
Their hosts of passengers may pursue
their aerial voyages with the ever-present
restful thought that Baldwin has pro
vided a safe descent to mother earth in
times of accident or poril. No man who
has given thought to the progress of
physical science in our day can say with
knowledge or truth that hero or there is
a point or line beyond which human in
genuity may not go. The limit may
seem to be hero or it may seem to bo
there , but it over recedes with each now
discovery , and beckons us onward , and I
was about to say upward , with Bald
win. " _
JESSE JAMES' PHYSICIAN.
Dr. Redding Tolls flow the Desperado
Lived and Died.
Chicago Mail : Dr. A. J. Redding , now
a resident practitioner in Aurora , with an
office on the island , was the family physi
cian of Jesse James during the last two
years of that desperate outlaw s life.
James was known in his St. Joseph homo
as Mr. Howard , and there wcro probably
not a half a iloz.on men living in or near
the little city who knew that Howards
nnd the famous desperado wcro one and
the same person. Dr. Redding , who is a
heavy-sot , shrewd-looking , middle-aged
man , braced back in his chair yesterday
afternoon when talking to a reporter for
the Mail and said : "lean recall Howard
now just aa ho looked when I hist saw
him. I think that was about three years
apo. A slight man of your build , who
would not turn the scale at 140 pounds ,
quick and miile , and the last person in
the world I would have taken for the
desperate Jesse James of whom j
had read. 1 was physician for thu
family for nearly two years , and I
knew him as 'Mr. Howard. ' Ho lived
just two blocks from my place , on the
top of a bluff , in a one and a half story
frame houso. From his house he had a
good view of all parts of the city , the
surrounding country , and clear over into
Kansas. My house was at the corner of
Eleventh and Lafayette streets. The state
ot Missouri , through the governor , had
oil'ored a heavy reward for Jesse James ,
dead or alivo. Bob Ford went to James'
house and stayed with him two months
without getting a chance to kill him.
Then Boo sent for his brother , and
ono day when the two wore in the
room with James , my 'Mr. Howard1
was led into a trap. Bob remarked to
Jesse , who was in his shirt-sleeves , that
he'd better take oil' his belt of pistols , as
there were people passing on the street
who might see them and think that all
was not right. Jcsso complied , and
climbed upon a chair to brush tliu cob
webs from a picture , when the two Ford
brothers covered him with tholrJW-caliber
Smith & Wesson guns. Jcsso James fell
dead , a bullet entering the head at the
base of thu skull , through the occipital
bono , and coming out through frontal
bone at the forehead. A neighbor flow to
ray ollico nnd announced that 'Mr. How
ard' was shot. 1 ran to my patient's house
and found him dead , there being a hole
in his head that admitted my linger.
The Ford brothers , after telegraphinz to
Governor Cnttonden that they had killed
James , went to police headquarters and
gnvo themselves up , saying they had
Tdllod Jesse James. ' City Marshal
Craig , who had heard of thu murder n
few minutes before , did not believe that
thu dead man was the far-famed desper
ado , but the prisoners insisted that the
otlicers would find all the marks on his
body to tally with the description sent
out , the missing finger and the scars.
When the truth was known the wildest
excitement prevailed in the city. Mrs.
James broke down in the presence
of the otlicers and said : 'Yes , this
man is Jesse James , my husband. ' Un
known men patrolled the town on horse-
buck during all that night , and a largo
force of olllcers guarded the jail in which
the Ford's wcro. The next day the carpet -
pot on which James was killed was cut
into little chunks by momonto-liunteru ,
and weeks afterward traveling men and
theatrical people visited the house. The
woman who owned the house kept it as
a show , and charged 25 cents a head to
show the room whore thu outlaw full.
She made a lot of money out of thu show.
James' friends would have killed
the Fords if they had got at
them , for the outlaw had many
admirers among those southern people.
James dressed in a neat business suit of
clothes , and I took him for a railroad
conductor. Ono day I asked Mrs. James
if her husband was not a railroad man ,
and slio said : 'No ; wo are hero from thu
east looking for a farm ; we expect to go
into the cattle business. ' A peculiarity
of the man was that ho went to Sunday
school with his family every Sunday reg
ularly at a little Bapilstchurcli at the foot
of the lull. Abbott , the horse breeder at
St. Joseph , know who Jcsso Jutncs was
from the time ho settled in St.
Joseph. Ho frequently missed
his fastest horse , but Jumes left a sign
tolling him who had called for the ani
mal in the nights. James was with thu
Younger brothers when the woven made
a raid on the Northtlold ( Minn. ) hank
and shot down the cashier in daylight.
The citizens killed two of thu desperadoes
in the sticcts of the town , but Jesse and
Frank James got away , making their es
cape into Missouri , whore thus Know they
were safe. The Younger brothers tire
now doing lifo sentences in the peniten
tiary of Minnesota for that crime. ' ' '
