THE WOMEN AS GYM MASTS A Large and Interested Assemblage to Hear William Blaikia THE ATHLETE'S SOUND ADVICE Points as to Muscular Development Comments on the Laxity of Jay Could as to His Health Everyone Ought to Walk Much, Wisner Hall, In which is located the gymnasium for women and children, was well filled last night to hear the address of Wdl-iam Blaikie, of New York, on the subject of athletic exercise and the health! uluess of the gymnasium. Shortly after 8 o'clock one of the young lady enthusiasts arose and introduced Mr. Blaikie, who began by alluding to the story of the man who was out at 4Vie of the New York clubs ra her late one night, and who, when asked by one of his fellow members what he was going to tell his wife, said he would tell her nothing, as he expected she wjuld do all the talking herself. So consequently the speaker ua id he expected to be in that very same predicament himself to niht. Continuing be said, "Devices and the science of the gymnasium have been so perfected as to euable ua to train every body physically even cripples to receive benflt. Twenty one years ago the New York papers devoted only about twenty lines to one of the Yale College boat races, and to-day what a channel Now a boat race has become so popular, as have all pbyfical sports, that the papers all over the iand publisn any vf here from one to several columns of such news thereby showing you that people have learned to believe and be interested in such things. ' Mr. Blaikie also alluded to his ref -ereeship at the Chautauqua races when Courtney an t Hanlon were to row.and showed how haraeoed these men s muscles were. Why yon take our pugilistic Sullivan, ' ' said he, he has so much muscle that by press ing the weight of his hand on the shadow on the wall it would certainly be as mild as the kick ot a mule. Now then the differ ence between these two men Is this, that while Sullivan can fight he hasn' t the science to row a boat like Hanlon or Courtney, and vice versa, all of which goes to show it Is the art of skill and training. Continuing, the speaker said that the young ladies were doing just right by letting peop.e know the advantages of a gymna- of num. I remember once 1 had on of the editors of the New York Tribune, " said he, ' ' who was working hard mentally and was bent over by the duties he pursued, come over to the gymnasium ; and some time after 1 met him on the street, a proud, erect, stout le.low. In fact I hardly reconiz-d him. Said I, 4 my dear fellow what have you been doiog to look so well?' to which he replied 'I have been taking regular daily practice at the gymnasium, as you suggested. This is only one of the thousands of cases we come in contact wuu. ine young ladies by gymnasium practice dyelop elasticity, grace, strength, beauty and health. If you wi.i tell ma of an eierc.se better for the developments of these things, I'll give up. People should not try by overdoing to be champions of what ever l. ranch of muscular development they practice, this is in-dead hurtful. ' He alluded to Mrs. Langtry, saying she was developed by her alti etio practice. This gsve her the becoming and graceful carriage she possesses. And wlaing, too, Is healthful. People when they go to the mountains should walk from tweaty-nv to thirty tudas a day. They should not co Ihete to rest. We A me. lean penpln do not walk half enough. But stld better than ail, la the gym nasium, for it strengthens every muscle and makes strong the weak spots. The spring-board strengthens the muscles of th leg. wt.ile many other apl ances strengthen otLer oarta. In order to strengthen the lungs breathe long and deeply. Inhale th fresh air, aud do It with a wiiL You will gain health in the end. Ladies generally, ' continued the speaker, "have weak arms. The way to strengthen them is to put them to test by drawing yourself up on a horizontal bar. Tueretore, isn't it within the power of each and every one of us to develop ourselves into strong men and women! Yes, indeed, it lies wholly with us. " He alluded to Jay Goul I's nervousness, neuralgia, etc., and said that he can take hardly a moment's comfort. 'Lveryone should indeed obtain muscular and vital development. Inhale ?nd strengthen your lungs- Get a lull chest. All this can be done. Don't neglect to avail yourself of an opportunity. ' Young ladies should not try to practice alone as it is hard work. Get several together and appoint an hour to meet and go through the exercises together. You have in this hall every appliance needed. Meet here of ten and practice. You have also a bathing regalia. Take a bath when you get through and I will guaiantee, with such practice kept up. you wiil coins out strong heathy young ladies. ' In conclusion the speaker said : If your young men would exercise as they should, the student aud book-keeper kink would be taken out of them. ' ' Photographic Section. G. n. Croughton lectured before the Pho tographic Section last evening, choosing as a subject ' The Preparation of Slides for the Magio Lantern. ' ' He said that the first slides made for projecting upon a screen by a mugio lantern, were all made and painted bv band, but the great expense of making them in this wav prevented their general me. Now, the original of tho lantern slide is al ways a photograph, and there is no limit to the size. A part of a large negative may be taken by contact priuti g, or the whole of the negative can bo reduced in the camera. Mr. Croughton illustrated his lecture by sketches on the black board, and by exposing aud developing slides. lbs section will be well represented at the coming soiree, and has laid out ini.ei esting work for the winter prize contests and lantern exhibitions. A number of new members were added and the interest in the section seems to be in creasing. Belonged to Another Family. a man ana woman entered Harned's res taurant last evening, and after enjoying h arty supper the waman passed out and the man refused to settle for the meals. He was arrested by Otfioer McArthur and gave the name or James tslattery, though ne said he wanted it to go on record that he was 'not one of the fighting ones. ' ' Academy of Science. ine committees appointed to arrange for the soiree met at the Academy of Science last night and elected Thomas Dransfield chairman. Matters were then thoroughly aiscusseo, and Tuesday, December 6th was decided upon as the date to hold the soiree. the affair will be very elaborate in its de tails.

When the preliminary business had beeu transacted, Colonel J. 8. Graham arose and asked the privilege of saying a few words regarding an article which appeared in the last issue of the The Earth relative to Mr. Blair's appearance in Roch ester.- The colonel thought it did injustice to Mr. Biaur and said he believed the United tabor Party was doing wrong whan it favored any candidate put up by either of the old parties. Colonel Graham's speech was applauded, and several other speakers i olio wed in a similar vein, holding that no partiality should be given y the paper to anyone outside of the regular United Labor candidates. One of the edi- toiial stall of the paper explained that it was not Intended to show anv partiality or to do anything fur ther thau act for the interests of the club. With this, the matter was dropped. The question of Thursday's mass meeting cam-i up and arrangements were completed for the reception of the speakers. A. large bundle of bttllotsfor the sLa.e ticket showed that the club is preparing for election day. POINTERS. Another United Labor mass meeting is to be held in the city Hail to-morrow evening.

Another meeting will be held next Monday night for the purpose of appointing committees for working at the polls. ENDED HIS OWN LIFE. Suicide of John Arend While in a Fit of Despondency. Yesterday morning Coroner Sharps was awakened by two young men, who stated that a man had committed suicide out in Brighton. That official accompanied the young men and found the body of John Arend lying in the yard of his mother-in- law, Mrs. Schake, at the corner of University and Arbutus avenues, with a bullet hole in bis temple. About ten years ago John Arend married Anna Mack. It is alleged that" his married life was far from happy, and repeated quarrels resulted in a separation. About two years ago Arnd went into the grocery busi ness, and last August sold out to Philip Mack, his brother-in-law. He made over tures to his wife towards reconciliation, and she agreed to live with him if he would give her $ 400. This be did, but it is asserted lhat she refused then to make good her promise. Arend theo wen Into the patent medicine business, where he lost some money. For a long time be bad been despondent, and frequently threatened to take hi life. Sunday eight he took supper at his pareuts home. No. 39 Mason street, and went to the residence of his brother George, on Nassau street, where he stayed all night. About 1 :30 o'clock yesterday morning Arend went to his mother-in law' house and rapped at the kltcben door, but could not gain admittance. He then stepped out into the yard, and, raising his revolver, fired tne fatal shot, which ended all his earthly troubles. Coroner Sharps held an inquest yesterday morning. A large number of witnesses were sworn woo tostined substantially to tne facts given above. The jury returned a verdict that the deceased came to his death by a pistol shot tired by bim?eif.

BE LAID The Regular Meeting of the Fathers Held Last Night City MRS. GRAHAM'S PETITION The Aldermen Adopt the Budget and Transact a Considerable Amount of Other Business The East Side Trunk Sewer Matter. It was something or a surprise, last night, to see the aldermen file into the Common Council chamber at an early hour. It was also surprising to see the way the fourteen city fathers dispatched the business. They did it hurriedly, which showed that none of them were prone to linger longer than necessary. " The gavel had hardly sounded and President Tracy's voice, when he called out the first business, had hardly ceased to vibrate, before aa application from the Rochester Superheated Water Company was presented for the right to lay and maintain in the streets, avenues, highways and public places in the city of Rochester, loaated about in a mile circle, pipes of iron or other suitable metal for the conveyance of superheated water or steam to such public aud private buildings as may require the same for heating, cooking, power and other purposes. The appMoatian further states : ' That the system of central station beating, the right to construct and use which is hereby applied for, Is known as the Frail system. In this system the water Is heated at the central station to the desired temperature, but is not a. lowed to change into steam, the making of steam being prevented by keeping the pipes and boilers full of water. The water thus heated is forced through pipes,' to be supplied from the boiler, baok to the boiler, maintaining throughout the system a constant circulation. ' Actual practice has shown that water heated to 400 degrees, Fahrenheit, can be circulated through one mile of pipe, at a speed of about ten feet per second, and returned to the boiler witn a loss of no more than two per cent, in heat. ' ' The petition waa signed by A. G. Yates, president of the company, and the aldermen voted to receive and file the same. A communication was received from Mrs. Graham asking the aldermen to order the judgment of $2, 000 that she held agains the oity, for the de th of her daughter iit the Court street bridge disaster, to be paid at once. On motion of Alderman Bohrer the matter was referred to the Law Committee and city attorney. The finance budget was next read and adoptod. Alderman Elliott, chairman of the Police and Exo se Board Investigating Committee, reported that several meetings had been held and that a stenographer had been engaged to taxe the evidence, and a constable to serve subpoenas. He stated that the fir.t meeting would oe held in the Common Council chambers, Monday evening November 7th. The report also stated that notices bad been published in all the daily papers, requesting that any persons who could give any information concerning the transactions of either of the boards, would send word to the committee. The lamp question, which appears as vexatious as ever, waa aga n brought no bv Alderman Fee, who presented a resolution to the effect that a man be hired to look after them and report the number that were lighted and unlighted. Every alderman in the board nearly, had a finger in the pie and made his little speech on the troublesome question. Alderman Elliott offered a resolution, which was adopt d, requesting the Police Commissioners, to order the patrol- : men to make a daily report of the number of lamps, lighted and unlighted on their. beats, and these reports to be given to the city clerk who would keep a record. Alder men Fee, Thayer and Kohlmetz were appointed a committee on the reso.ution offered by Alderman Fee. A bill of over $4, 000 for lights was presented by Alderman Fee as chairman of the lamp committee, who said he did not know whether the bill was correct or not. A communication was read from the city surveyor regarding the advisability of mov- ng the West avenue swing bridge, the com munication stating that it would be impracticable. Within a few d xys after October 1st. four com plete leveling parties, -ach consiitius; of four men, were placed iu the held under the nuperr.j.ou of Oscar H. Peacock, to test the levels recorued upon the topographical map ot ihs city, made in lt70; also 'o fully supplement th work then performed by taking a. I nect-s ary additional levels in tha whOie of the Sixtren h ward and parts of the Fifui, Seventn, Tei.tn, Tweirtn Thirteeutn and Fourteenth wards. Nearly the whole of the montii was occupied with this work insiue of the city limits, and the data so obtained may now be plotted upon the map. biiiire finishing their wora within tne city, all cf the four parties have been tmraged in running iimiiar series of levels aud surveys in those por tions of the towns of Brighton aud Irondequoit whici are adjacent to tne eastern and norinern boundaries of iho ciy, in order to obtain sufficient a ai a to exhibit the general toiioraphy thereof. and to define the extent of territory ia said too us which may be drained by the proposea sewer. This part of the work is progressing as rapidly as pos sible and will doubtless be completed in a few weeks. It has also been considered expedient to ascertain, by accurate UiSTumental survey, the extent of the swampy lands and marsnes ar the head of lr.-uoVquoit Bay. in view of the fact that Tuomas Cieen. and other natural water courses whtcn have heretofore been used as carriers of raw sewa e from thecitv. empty into the southern p irtion ot said b-iy, aud the question will arise as to the propriety of continuing the usn of these cree"s fr such purposes. Una of the Meld par. ie has accord njfiy beira assigned to tne survey of this locality, and lias been o ;uu pied there with for several days oast. In the meantime, thirty-one self-rvgisterin.i; ilood-waier gauges for :ci taming tne dfpt'.s of flow in the principal outlet sewers of tne eiit re eastern poi tiou of the city were designed, constructed ana erected at as many nuttabie pou.ts. Two ram-gmiges have al; been made and set up at the Hoches er Hndge VVor-s and the Mun.cipal tiai works, tarougi tne, kind permission of J. F. Alden and J. Y. MClintock, respectively. Willi tnese two new gauges, in addition to those ma n-lained by the United fctatss Signal Service on fow-ers Biock, uid by the tjrecutive tl. ard at Mt. Hope Keservoir, an accurate record of the depth and distribution of any cons.ueraule rainfall in the city wiil be ob-allied. The object-of securing the data desired from the atoresiiid sewer and raiu gauges is to lie erunue. if possible, the relauion between the amount of water whicu falls a ran upon the drainage areas of t"B several seweis and Inst which actually flows oil fr.m sa'U ars as thrUh tiie saner.
