Trilby's morals have been dis- uased from the pulpit to the stage. Mrs. Crannis, president of the ciety for the Advancement of Social rity, has had her say about Du itouricr's heroine, and :is to whuther profession is a leg-itimato one for I women. Women models have always been a (ttlc sensitive about, their profession, , since Trilby has buori the favoi'itu opic of studio gossip, some of the best them have felt that Koasitive!n''KS acreaso and have declined to pose for D nudo. Child mod'jl.s who have been the profession since before they nld walk have been forbidden to itcr studios, while women who have lupportcd . their families by posing avo refused to mount tho model stand Miss Ara'nclla Gold, who is known as i famous figure model to tho best crt- its of New York, has recently sent in a lublic resignation from tho profession. Ihe wrote to ono of tho leading 1 Xcw (fork papers requesting that.it publish faot that she would never affain i for tho fig-lire. Miss Gold'a resig-- ;ion Is n. decided loss to the artists, i is said to have one of the most ex- Inlsitely formed figures in the world. B-nho has boon posing for n nnm- If Sarony's livin™ pictures.

Many models whose forms have hero- foro been.promincnt features in tho ortrait exhibitions declare that they i will renounce the business entirely. is not that they object to posing they claim, but tho notoriety vhlch embarrasses their profession has become Intolerable since tho publi- | at ion. Tho majority of models Interviewed tave not read tho book, but claim that ilby, whoever she was, has seriously for tlmt and for having to discuss It, with people who can never understand it, I should not feel at all bad. I don't know anything about Trilby, but if she Is a woman artist, I don't want to pose for her. You never can make a woman understand the profession. They always look upon models as something beneath contempt, and cannot believe that we are good honest women and work hard for what we earn. Do they suppose that we stand on one foo; in a badly heated studio all day just to amuse ourselves? "Nobody knows what we have to put tip with. The minute people find out •what our profession Ls they become suspicious and want to know why we arc in it. It is almost impossible for a woman to live in a boarding house, and have her profession known. I lived in a place a long time once, and nobody knew what I did until one day an artist came to tin; house to engage me, and let the eat out of the bag. Of course he did not do it on purpose, but then he did it just the b^me. Well, tho result was the landlady wanted my room; she said she only kept respectable women in her house, and I had to go. The same thing- has happened twice since. That is why we all us fictitious names." Little Annie Gray, who is cclebratec throughout the studios for her beauti "I have not read "Trilby" and cannot say whether it has influenced models against their profession or not. All 1 know is that I wouldn't give the cs.me or address of a model. for publication for anything- under the sun. If J did I'd lose some of the best of my living pictures." HER HALLOWEEN EXPERIMENT.

"Trilby is worse than Mr. Comstoek," a little fourteen-year-old, who for ome time has been making her broad ad butter by posing for photographs bf living pictures. "U'hy, she won't let ns go into the studio nt ull. Mr. Coin- used to stop me from going, but nnmma went, just tho same." Tho innocence of this child could bo gnaled only by Trilby's. She lias scd from babyhood upward. As au Infant she had an exquisite little Cgure, ad began her profession when in the us of her mother. Her mother refuses to give cither her own or tho bhild's real name, and they are known Ihrorig-hoiit tho studios by half u dozen litlcs. Until lately the little girl has ecn- known to many of her employers ."Annie," but, owing to her purity ad innocence, some of the nrti.sts have okingly termed her "The American Crilby." When the name was first her, she took it good naturedly; do is a pet in the studios nnd used to cing nicknamed. I>ut when she told her mother that tho artists called her Trilby, the mother became quite angry, tid took it r.s a personal insult to tho thild.

"Tho people think we nro nil like Trilby, I suppose," she said, as she snapped her little black eyes, and threw a shawl around her shoulders. "I think she was a bad woman. I am sure the models in this country don't act like she did. It is all well enough for her to make believe she was mesmerized, but 1 don't believe it. People always have to have some excuse for being bad. I3ut she is dead, and I won't, say anything about her, poor little thing. I • know lots of girls who pose, and their mothers don't know it. They don't dare tcU; because they would not be allowed to do it any marc, I often pose for what Trilby calls the altogether, and don't mind it nt all.

Two of the New York libraries and several of the Uoston and PhiUicU'lphia libraries have received requests not to circulate "Trilby."

A cycling romance was easily spoiled, nnd so was a C3 - cling costume, in one of Lhe plcasantest suburbs of South London. One Sunday morning ns a gentls- man was wheeling bis way along his favorite country lane, he gradually overtook a lady bicyclist attired in the rational costume which, for a wonder, jccr.tno her well. Elegantly cut, fiyult- .essly finished, tho fair rider's attire, rom hat to gaiters, spoke the lady—so 'ar, at least, as style went—nnd the untied spectator was fast becoming a jonvert to the aesthetic claims of the fashion, when the fair rider wob- >led, hesitated anil was lost in a ditch at the side of tho road.

"Doj-ou know that the 'hold-iip'of a train in Virginia recalls to my mind a similar occurrence that took place when I was a young man in -the business up near Pittsburgh at a station named Oreen^burgh?" said a well- known railroad detective. "The details are very similar. The train was successfully hold up; the express car robbed of a good round sum. and the robbers made a break for Pittsburgh after crossing the Conemaug-h river, near vv'hich the robbery occurred. 1' received the details of the robbery in Pittsburgh from my superior oP.ictr a short time after it occurred, and something told rue they would use the Conemaugh to cover up their tracks. "I had an assistant at the time vrho lived on the outskirts of Allegheny City, at one of those little summer places. There was a telegraph ollice at tho place, and I at once telegraphed him to bo on the lookout for the men. and that I would sec him in the mor.a- ing. At the same time f took another route so ns to cover as much ground as possible. The details c,( my assistant's movements that night 1 gathered from him two years later in the Conk county jail, Chicago. "It secins that ho was in tho telegraph otlicc when my message was received, and ir. n few minutes was on bis way toward the river. It wns pitch dark, but ho kept on until he readied a point in the road that led through a considerable stretch of woodland. He had stopped to take his bearings when he heard a -wagon coming up tbe road at a furious rate of .';pccd. He left, the road and sought refugo behind a good- sized tree. The \vagon came up and passed on but only about ador.cn yards. He made out the forms of five men as the w:igon went by, nnd he was i:i the act of following them when the wagou stopped. Again he darted back into the woods and savr the- robbers, for so they proved to be, lug out a good-sized bo." and drag- it isto the woods. Hastily digging ahole they buried tho box. nnd, after marking several surroundin/j tro.es, hurried back to tho wagon and continued their rapid driving toward tho city. "My assistant, after assuring himself that the men were well out of tbe waj', hastily dug that box up and loaded himself with currency. On reaching- home he found he had something like seventeen. thousand dollars, and the temptation was too strong for him. He decided to keep it. tic lived in his old home for nearly a year, and was shrewd enough not to use any of the money. Then he left for Chicago and shortly afterward bought quite a farm in southern Illinois. About the same time I arrested a man for breaking into a freight car. "This fellow was far gone with consumption and I took him to the hospital. There ho confessed to me that lie was a member of the gang that had held tip the express messenger a year and a half before, and the result of the burying- of the treasure in the woods.
