While they were still in the cor- .ridor a man in the crowd was heard to say-to his companions: "But why arc you applauding so much? Ho has always beaten us!" This was very true, and the question seemed a natural one, but the answer was charming: "Yes, but he has always beaten us like a gentleman!"

ICOPTRIGHT. 1695.1 EE first request made of all frirls who go into a gymnasium i s the surrender of corsets. This request is supported oy physicians, who declare it utterly impossible to do good "gym" work in corsets. Dress reformers tell how injurious to health the corset is; how the action of the intercostal muscles is prevented; how the floating ribs are crushed, how the lower portion of the lungs is paralyzed, but here is a fact thut they will find some trouble in explaining satisfactorily. The champion women acrobats, equestriennes, trick and bareback riders, equilibrists, aerial specialists and trapeze performers wear corsets. They do their most wonderful acts in corsets. Contortionists are the only class who habitually work without them. These women are the most energetic of their sex, noted for their endurance, activity, fine physical development, and especially for length of wind. Now, if corsets are such deadly articles, why don't they take effect on the queens of the sawdust ring? Imagine being introduced suddenly into the dressing-room of Barnurn & Bailey's circus, where fifteen stellar performers of whom you had intended to ask: "Do you wear corsets?" had just reached the corset stage in their toilets. Every one of the fifteen had either just clasped on a pair or was about to do so. The sight was convincing. Xo questions were necessary. "Oh, you do, 'don't you?" was tho natural exclamation, "Do what?" asked a young woman in lavender tights, The wardrobe woman, who was tho intruder's chaperonc, made a speech. "Ladies, this newspaper woman wants to know how many of you wear corsets when in the ring, and if the most difficult feats can bo performed in them." Then Lavender Tights, who was recognized as Linda Jeal, who flies through paper hoops and does daring bareback hurdle act, said: "Everybody that I know of wears them. I'd have a broken back if I didn't, and I guess all the others would. There's nothing the matter with corsets if they aren't laced to death. If I left them off I'd never be able to do a thing." "Don't they disturb the action of your heart? Can you use your inter- costal muscles?" "Well, I've been in the business over twenty years and I fruess I'd have ,been dead before now if corsets affected the heart, and I've got the use of about every muscle there is in ray body," and the girls all joined in Miss Jeal's merry laugh as she turned to them for confirmation. "Of course, ypu can't use tho lower part of your lunsrs in breathing. No corsets' to 'soc tn'o r.oies in :in arguments. Thero'b -Jury Wentworth. Ask her." jliss Wentwcyth C3":o over from her dressing trunk. •Tni dressed now for a. jontortion act, nnd haven't rn_T corsv^s o::. I dou't any contorloiiisi of (irsl ruuk . in every- who does wear them. thing else I Co I wouldn't thir.'.c of going without them. Yes. I practice in them as well as perform. I always wear them in trapeze acts." Miss Wcntwcrth is one ot the all- around performers, who :s considered to have a long career ahead of her, and she expects to wear corsets to the end of her days. Just then along came a little woman in pink, simply one bunch of e::quisite muscles from neck to heels. "Come here, Miss Juliette. Yon always wear corsets, don't you?" called Miss Wont- worth. "I never go without them. But what's all this about?" "Why, you know there are folks who are trying to get women to stop wearing corsets because it injures their health," explained Miss Wentworth. "Injures the health? Look at me. How could I do mv tricks if I wasn't healthy? I've teen training since I was three years old, and have worn corsets ever since I can remember. Do I look as if they hurt me? See that,"' and Miss Julieua threw up a muscle on her arms like rock, and took a couple of deep breaths that were like filling a balloon. "Why, I can do anything in corsets," and the muscular little woman hurried to her corner to change her dress, and in a few moments was saying good day.

He said I looked 'delicate.' So I let out my breath and then, while he held a measure, .1 inflated my lungs. The doctor said I was 'very deceiving.' In this business a woman has got to have as much wind as she can get. If she don't, sho can't work. I can do anything in corsets I can do without, and for that matter, I can't do some thing's at all without the corsets." The insurance company accepted Miss Jeal at a very moderate premium, because they decided she was an exceptionally pood physical risk. "Doesn't corset reform ever get into the circus?" "Sometimes, but not much. My niece has been riding for six years, and she got an idea she couldnt perform with corsets on. Her mother and I have always worn them, but she had her own way. I saw she was getting a stoop in her. back, and last fall .1 told her she must come out in corsets. She did, but she was sure she never could bend this way nor that" (drifting 1 backward and forward). "But she did. One day when the corsets burst she insisted on stopping practice to take them off. I said, 'Go ahead.' .When-she came back she couldn^t get along without them, and now. she's converted to corsets. I read everything I see in the papers about dress reform and the evils of corsets, but It'is only necessary to see what acrobatic feats -women performers do in and as sne' appearedMiss' jearcaliea out: "How do you do, Miss Pink Cheeks? Do you wear corsets?" "Miss Pink Cheeks," who is one oi the flying Dillons, looked surprised at such a question, and dropped into her dressing chair. "Do you wear corsets in your act?" "No, 1 don't." The girls looked surprised as she went on. "I never have worn them while performing." "Why, you look just as if you did when you walk into the ring." "I know it; that is because every muscle in my body has been developed, vvnen nslcca to account lor LUC ciscrep ancy between her idea of the shape o: a:!woman's waist :ind that tho Venus exploits, sho said: "Why. Venus didn't tako any exercise. If she had used her muscles as she ought, she would have lost tha' lumpy look about her waist, worked of some extra flesh and had a respectable shape instead of looking- like a dowdy.' Miss Dillon's act is exceedingly daring. She works on a high trapeze, anc after exploits that make timid women wish she wouldn't do so any more, she takes a dive from the top into a net below. Mme. Catroni, who had been listening to her side partner, Miss Dillon, said: "I didn't take to wearing corsets until I was twenty years old, but I think youll find that most women performers, unless they are contortionists, wear a corset into the ring. There may be a little fondness for making a good appearance, and nobody would want to A DASCE ON TBX SLACK BOPB. and the body has got its natural shape." • , Miss Dillon has an idea that will delight women who are so tired of having the Venus deMilo and the Medici lady's waist : -hdif'np 'to; them ** models.' FEOM THE BDfGS. se« a woman without them unless she was very slim and compactly built. I never heard of a woman's being- injured by a broken corset steel. I got my head smashed and a rib broken in a .four-horse tandem hurdle race a year ago, but the corset steels didp't even scratch me. Even the lady clown wears corsets, and she can turn somersaults, backward flips and handsprings. She doubles herself up and rolls around the ring', and all those things that dress reformers would say were impossible." The Meers Sisters, who perform four times within eight hours what would seem to.be most exhausting bareback acts, and at the end of each number still are able to go into the dressing, room smiling and joking, looked scornful at the mere idea of not wearing cor- •ets. "What a silly notion!" one said. "We never could do without them," another exclaimed. "Corsets give the hack support. Sometimes a steel smasnos, i>ut tn;« never stops us.- As to asking about injurious effects on their three hearts, it was useless, after seeing- the trio make standing] leaps from the ground to a running: horse's back, then perform an acrobatic dance and more feats on horseback without a breathing space apparently. Which all goes to bear out the speech of Dr. Mary Green, of Detroit, sprung on the dress-reform session of the National Woman's council. Ix. Washington, when she declared that corsets, when properly worn, were not injurious in any way, and that she had even prescribed them. If DC.
