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 ally.” “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 time. ” “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it is beautiful, but, un fortunately for men who nay millinery and dressmakers’ bills, the Grecian style is a trifle out of date.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 every time. 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 half feet high, while the women are a good deal smaller. These tiny littJ“ men are both brave and cunning.

LEFT HIS BONES BEHIND. A Shipwrecked Sailor Escapes from a Desert Island with a Framework of Dust. 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 a cause. 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. ■ L ~ " r ' ■' 1 ' '■* ’ " 1 ” ' | Lung Trouble* and Wasting disease* can be cured, if pn>|>ei ly treated in time, as shown by tha following statement j from D.

Mixed Ju* ut Htrauaa Of M | FROM A LIVING DEATH. Rescue of a Seaman on the Coast of Siberia. 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. 10 Help come. 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 barren shores. 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. .
