TIGHT LACING DEFENDED.
A Veteran Artist Upholds the Practice
From the New York Mail and Exnress.
“What kind of a female model do I pre
fer)” repeated a veteran member of the Na
tional Academy of Design, in answer to an
inquiry of a Mail and Express reporter.
“Why, a handsome one, of course.”
“Where do you fine them?”
•‘We don’t find them. They are blessings
not to be searched for like bargains in a dry
goods store. They are discovered accident
“Do the handsomest models wear stays!”
“Do they wear shoes and stockings, gloves
and skirts’ Why don’t you ask me that?”
returned the old gentleman, with good-na
tured petulance. Indeed, they do wear
stays. A woman must wear stays to keep
her shape at all.
“And lace tightly?”
“Why not? Of course, lace tightly, as
tightly as she can, on occasions. Not all the
time, though. An athlete pounds a sand
bag, runs a mile or so before luncheon,
rows, boxes, exercises on the bars, rings and
rowing machine, swings clubs and lifts
dumb-bells. But he doesn’t do it all the
time. This course of treatment develops
his arms, chest, legs, back and alxiomen. It
fives hnn his magnificent physique, but he
oesu’t keep it up five or six hours a day all
his life. He can, once give him the muscles
and form, well trained, lounge around the
greater part of the time, resorting only to
this exercise once in a while to keep him
from corpulency, stooped shoulders and
other evidences of physical neglect.
“So with a woman and her stays,” con
tinued the artist warmly “She must needs
lace herself as tightly as possible just often
enough to preserve her form in its jierfect
symmetry. Say that a woman squeezes her
self once a day or once every other day into
a pair of tightlv-laced corsets, say when
dressing for the street or drawing-room, and
tin n when the opportunity presents takes
off he sta vs an 1 puts on a looser pair. She
is abie to keep her figure much trimmer than
by wearing corsets moderately loose all the
“You don’t believe in the Greek goddess
style of beauty.”
“No one does more so, but how would a
Greek goddess look walking up Fifth ave
nue dressed in modern costumes and leading
a pug dog. Men would turn around and
look after her and ask where that “wash
woman” got her good clothes. The Greek
goddess waist only looks well in Greek god
dess gowns. There it is beautiful, but, un
fortunately for men who nay millinery and
dressmakers’ bills, the Grecian style is a
trifle out of date. The handsomest model
I ever saw, the woman whose figure is near
est perfection of any I know of, comes to
my studio in the trimmest, neatest, best
fitting tailor-made gown you ever sa' •. Her
stays are as taut as strings can make them,
but when she lays them asido for business,
her figure rounds out a little and at the
same time preserves the slender waist and
rounded bust. If she didn’t wear tight
stays, her figure would lie worthless for the
purpose she now so profitably uses it. Yes,
sir, I believe in tight lacing in moderation
Pigmies From Central Africa.
Fom the San Francisco Examiner.
Ronzo de Leo, who travelled many years
in Africa with Dr. Livingstone, was one
who almost stood out alone in the assertion
that a race of dwarfs lived iu Central
Africa. In his lectures in America he told
of a little jieople who fled to tho clefts of the
rocks when the explorers approached. C.
Eugene Wolff, who traveled many years
with Stanley, and who is now in tho city,
gives some queer accounts of these dwarfs.
“On the southern branches of tho C ngo,”
said he to an Examiner reporter, “I have
seen whole villages of these Lilliputians.
They are a generous little psiple, who live
in rude huts amt clear ground, engaging in
various sorts of agriculture. They are also
skilled hunters, and they moke palm wine.
They are as lithe and supple in climbing
trees as monkeys or balloons, although they
are physically as perfect men as any of the
giant trilx-s thereabout, and they know as
much. The men are not ovor four and a

A DREAM OF MAIDENHOOD.
BY An ALINE ROBE.
He must he great: but whether tall or fair
It matters not: the stature of his soul
Shall dignify his body, anil enroll
His heart with sacrei things so pure and rare..
With liquid love that one clear beam from air
Celestial will to rainbows turn the whole
Of his sweet earth-life, and bis thought con
To pity, help, forgive, believe, forbear.
He must be true: no gilt words shall beguile
His lip to trifle, nor his face to lie:
With tender grace iiis hand shall scatter halm
On wounded friendship, and restore the smile
To care-old orphans;—#o hi- shsli- aot die,
But shme, star-crowned, in Heaven’s bluest
LEFT HIS BONES BEHIND.
A Shipwrecked Sailor Escapes from a
Desert Island with a Framework of
From the Chicago Mail.
New York, Sept. SO. —What a fellow
would do and how he would feel without
having any bones to walk around with, to
most people would be rather hard to con
ceive, but to John Hughes, who is now an
inmate of the Charity Hospital, on Black
well’s Island, there is no difficulty about
forming an opinion. He has a bone or two
left in bis system, but taking bis anatomy
as a whole he is about as much Without
bones us any one living. He is not particu
larly unhuppy in his present condition, but
still he does not advise everyone to get rid
of their bones for the sake of enjoying life
as much as he does.
Hughes was cast away on a desert island
in the Southern Paeine. As soon as he
could collect his senses, he crawled to a
sheltered spot in the woodland, which for
tunately was near a spring. After getting
water then came the search for food. It
was a dreary hunt, but finally Hughes
found some birds of large size, feeding upon
a peculiar vegetable or plant having a light
yellow flower, and concluded that he could
stand what the birds could. He ate freely
of this plant and soon there followed a
pleasant sense of exhilaration or stimula
tion. The food was nourishing and he
gained strength. He made trips over the
island, but save the half-sunken timbers in
the sand that marked the burial places of
many a good ship there was nothing to show
that the foot of a human being had ever
trod the desolate place. He varied his vege
table diet by killing some of the birds.
He had hopes, as is natural to the follower
of the sea, of being rescued some day.
There was ever a chance that a vessel might
be blown his way. In order that the atten
tion, of any passing ship might be attracted,
he fastened his red shirt every clear day to
the top of a dead tree. Days, weeks, and
months passed and never the sign of a sail.
It was a monotonous existence, but it was
finally broken by the appearance of a long
black streak on the horizon. This in
dicated that a steamer was passing,
but would it come near the island, was
the question that racked the mind of the
castaway? It did, and the lookout’s eye
caught the waving shirt. The steamer was
stopped, a boat put off to the shore and
Hughes, crazy with delight, was taken
aboard. The rescued man after a few days
recovered the usual tenor of his mind and
worked his passage on the vessel, which
proved to be an ocean tramp, to France.
The day after the vessel got to France,
Hughes shipped on a brigantine for New
York. Three days before the vessel got
here Hughes stumbled over a stool and
broke his right leg It was a bad fracture
aud it was thought strange that such a
serious result should have followed so slight
Hughes was taken to the Charity hospital
when the vessel got to this port. This was
months ago. Both the tibia and fibula
bones in the leg were found to be fractured,
by Dr. Willets, the attending surgeon.
After some preliminary treatment the leg
was done up in a plaster of pans bandage.
It was supposed that the usual result would
follow, and that in a few woeks the patient
would be able to hobble on a crutch for a
while and then leave the hospital. At the
end of six weeks the upper portion of the
bandage was cut away. This gave the
patient the liberty to move the leg, and it
proved decidedly unfortunate. The foot
and lower part of the leg being heavy, the
patient in getting out of bed lot his leg full
heavily, aud it struck the edge of the bed in
the middle of the thigh bone, which
snapped as if it was a pipe stem. This
fracture was thought to bo due to the
weakened condition of the bone and mus
cles from inaction. The pain was so great
that Hughes became delirious and, alter his
entire leg had been bandaged, he threw his
right arm wildly and fractured both the
radius and ulna and the collar bone. These
were put up in plaster. Soon after this the
patient to get relief from the position in
which ht had been so long, threw his loft
leg over the right quickly aud the shock
broke the thigh bone near the knee.
This last fracture was of such an unusual
nature that, taken in consideration with the
others, it was thought to demonstrate some
defect in the organic structure of the bones.
Such a case has never been seen before. In
experimenting with the pressure upon the
injured arm. the ulna was broken near the
wrist. This led to a practical examination
of the bone. An opeuine was made in the
arm aud a piece of bone taken out. It was
found to be very fragile, and crumbled like
calcinedTione. A chemical and microscopi
cal examination showed that the disease
was an extraordinary case of fragilites
ossiunl. The brittleness was caused by an
undue proportion of earthy matter, and the
quantity was so great in this case that the
bone wits in some places but little more than
dust held together by an oleaginous fluid.
The hones of the entire body were found to
be affected. In order to stiffen the spine
and protect the ribs, a chain shirt was put
on the body. This consisted of a tight
fitting network of wire and stiffened the
liotly so that it was the same as if it was all
encased in a solid bono.
Internal remedies were given to counter
act the crumbling tendency of the bones and
the removal of tissue from the body. • A
good result followed, and at the end of two
months an examination showed a percepti
ble hardening of the bones. Fortunately
the skull was The least affected. The frac
tures united rapidly in the legs and arms,
mid the plaster 'as taken off at the expira
tion of tliree months.
In order that there might he no strain
upon the bones Dr. Willets constructed an
ingenious piece of mechanism of steel hands.
Those were fitted tightly to the legs anti arms
lengthwise on both sides, withu movable at
tachment at the joints to admit of natural
motion. The bands were very stiff though
elastic, and took all tho strain of the body
from the bones. The patient could stand
and the harness sustained the weight, and
with this relief there is a possibility that the
bones may, with proiier treatment, be re
stored to their normal condition. It. is esti
mated that two a ears will be consumed at
least in doing this, and it may lie that tho
patient will never get well.
Hughes attributes hi* condition to eating
the vegetable food on the island when* he
was east ashore. He says tliat be noticed
that the hones of the birds be caught crum
bled in his fingers wit hout being subjected
to heat, and broke easily when twisted. Dr.
Willets bus no confidence in this idea, but
thinks tliat the disease was caused by the
repeated attacks of scurvy which Hugh*-*
had in hi* seafaring life. Scurvy Is known
to render the bones brittle in those who have
the disease. The name of the plant Hughes
ate is not known.

New Bedford, Sept. 18.—Word has
reached here of the rescue of James B. Vin
cent, of Martha's Vineyard, one of the crew
of the whaling bark Napoleon, lost in
Behring sea in the summer of 1885, while
coming out of the Arctic. The Napoleon
was struck by an iceberg, ami went to the
bottom immediately. The crew disem
barked in four boats, but had no time to
take any provisions aboard. A night and
a day they were tossed about, when a gale
sprang up and they were separated. Finally,
after four days, the United States steamship
Corwin picked up one boat’s crew with eight
men alive and otto dead. In the afternoon
she picked up another boat with six men
alive and three dead. Nothing was seen of
the other two boats, and it was supjiosed
that the eighteen men who were in them
had perished amidst the ice or had reached,
the inhospitable coast, there to dio of hun
ger and exposure.
Last year letters from the Arctic brought
intelligence that the first mate was supposed
to be alive on the const of Siberia, but
nothing authentic was learned, and it has
since been ascertained that there was no
foundation for the hope. A belief that
some of the missing boat’s crew did not
perish was again revived a few months ago,
when an old Indian came on board the
whaling bark Hunter, and gave the Captain
a rudely carved piece of cedar on which the
hope was based that James Vincent was
alive, and a clue to his whereabouts had
been found. The board, with the inscrip
tion, was sent to the commander of United
States steamer Bear at Port Clarence, A. T.
The inscription was, on tho one side:
188 J. B. V. I Tob
Bk. Nap. | Baco
S. W. C, Nav, | Give.
This was interpreted rightly’. It has been
found that Janies B. Vincent was alive, ten
miles southwest of Cape Navnrin, Sitieria,
and wished the Indian who carried his mes
sage rewarded with tobacco. The Bear at
once prepared to sail for Cape Navarin, to
find, if possible, the unfortunate man or
men, for four indistinct mares upon the
wood led the officers to believe that Vin
cent might not have been the only one
whose life was not lost.
The Bear steamed away from Port Clar
ence on July 11, arriving in the vicinity of
Navarin some six days later. The Bear ar
rived early in the morning and dropped an
chor in a little inlet, when several parti* s
were sent ashore to scour the surrounding
country. It was nearly night when they
returned to the vi>esel. and not a word was
learned of a white man stopping on the
Tho next day the searching parties were
again sent out, and before noon, some miles
from Navarin, in the direction of Cape St.
Thaddeus. an old Esquimau was found who
guided the party to an Esquimaux village at
the south, where Vincent was found. His
health was shattered, and he had nearly
abandoned hope of ever reaching his native
land. The crew had perished, one by one,
and he had lived on with the Esquimaux
with whom he had joined his fortunes on
landing on the bleak coast two years before.
He expected to live and die on the frozen
wash of the Gulf of Anadyn, and his only
forlorn hope was in the rude message which
he carved on the piece of wood, and sent
south with a hunting party. This message
reached friends, and after months of awful
suspense he was saved as by a miracle, and
the fate of the missing crews is ua longer a
secret of the sea.
Three boys went to the Schenectady grave
yard on a bet, but the fourth boy* was there
ahead of them on no bet at all. He groaned and
growled, ami the three youngsters kicked up the
dust at the rate of a mile a minute. One of them
fell ami broke an arm, and a second badly hurt
himself by bumping into a tree.
