VERY YOUNG woman in society goes in for athletics in some form or other. Just at present golf is the . all - absorbing attraction—at New* port, Southampton, Islip, Cedarhurst, Tuxedo, Yonkera and Westchester. All the swells have invested in golf sticks and stunning golf costumes, and every day they take a turn or two around the links. The bicycle, too, corncs in for a share of attention from society folk, and possiblv in time it will be quite as popular here as it is in France and England. Newport has set the lead and many of the very heavy swells, indeed, own wheels and use them with commendable regularity. blue, covered with yavt lace. Tho sleeves are puffed below the elbow, and the Swiss-shaped waistband is in pale blue, covered wlttf lace. The skirt is kilted, the length being about four inches below the knee. Dark blue stockings are worn with this suit.

LATESt SERMON, in t« SW fees* *o* thft — "Atlse, te, and id frot t<Stt* K*sfc."--*&rt Silent £ I X. ffctt to* ffoafl MKS. YZSAOA. One of the pretty women, one of the belles of society, in fact, who believes in paying 1 good heed to her physical condition is jVirs. Fernando Yznaga (uce iJabel Wright). She lifts always had a reputation as an expert, swimmer, an art which she acquired when a mere slip of a girl. There is a story that when she was spending the summer at Narrusjansett Pier, before her marriage, her popular appellation was "Venus," a title bestowed upon her on account of her beauty and for the fondness she eyhibited for the water, MRS. LUCY CATSNF.GIE. ful wife of the electrician, is devoted to riding and driving and bowling. She belongs to the Orange Athletic club, which boasts of the fact that nearly a fifth of the total membership is composed of ladies. The club house is open to them every day until .'! o'clock, and all day on Monday and Thursday. Bowling and tennis are the sports in which women to.ko part At her charming home, Gleninont, Llewellyn Park, Mrs, Edison has a tennis court for the use other two stepsons. Her own two children are rather young yet to understand the mysteries of racquet, net and balls. Mrs. Edison occasionally plays a game over the nets, but saj's she considers the exercise rather too violent for warm weather. She rides a great'Jdeal about the picturesque country near her home, and drives every day, sometimes accompanied Toy her husband when she can persuade him to leave his beloved workshop, which is but a short distance from his house. She always stops for him at noon, when on her wa.y home, but she is not always successful in pursuading him that he needs his luncheon; in fact, unless his wife took such good care of him, it is more than likely that it would never occur to him that he needed either food or sleep. As to horses, he does not share Mrs. Edison's fondness for them.' He considers tJiem poor motors BROOKLYN, N. Y. s Aug. 26.—Rev. Dr. Taltnage, xvho is now in Australia on his globe-girdling tour« has selected as the subject of his sermon for to-day, through the press, the wot-ds, "Ever* lasting Life/' the test being from Micah Z: x: "Arise Ve and depart^ for this is not your rest" This was the drum-beat of a prophet who wanted to arouse his people from their oppressed and sinful Condition 1 , but it inutf just as properly be tittered now as then. Bells, by long exposure and much ringing, lose their clearness of tone? but this rousing bell of the gospel strikes in as clear a tone as when it first rang on the air. AB far as I can see, your great want and twine is rest. From the tiine we enter life a great many vexations and annoyances take after us. We may have our holidays, and our seasons of recreation and quiet, but whore is the man come to mid-life who has found entire rest? The fact is that God did not make this world to rest in. A ship might as well go down off Cape Hatteras MISS the foam of the sea having FLORENCE RQCKWELI* been the first cradle of the Goddess of Beauty. Mrs. Yznag-a lias by no means neglected her first love in the pursuit of other athletic pastimes, and during the summer, when at Newport, she takes a daily dip in the old ocean. Jler bathing costumes are works of art onipared with electricity, and says le would, never use one were he not obliged to, One of the best all round athletes— such a favorite expression nowadays —in New York is Miss Florence Rock' well. She practices almost daily in a yiunasium during the winter, she rides a bicycle, and she is a famous edestrian. One part of the program it the "gyro" she attends is a walk ol bwo miles, taken twice a week, This doe? not sound very formidable until explained that it is not walking exi aotly, but sprinting, a branch of ath' letics which has not as yet received much attention from the fair sex. Eight young ladies, under the advice of their instructor, and accompanied by his wife, have been accustomed, duping the past winter, to start from jrifty-nintu street, and to run from there up to Eightieth street an<J back, ^topping for a two minute rest only, if you please, before starting on the homeward stretch- They ran briskly and wore >no waps, A more logical statement wpuld, be that they wore np wpaps, a» d consequently, were oblige^ tp run briskly, "Of course, every pne turned to Ipote at us," saW ]$iss. Rockwell, in. describing the exercise, ''but »o one, said '.alotoUunatios let loose,' only 'why, th e y we girls! JustlP-ok!"' 'JL'he r«u wp tife§G for the benefit of their }ung-f, #84. as it fe ajwftys the fashion to hiyp lungs, au4 lately to have healtey pnes, it isvgry to find smooth waoer as a man in this world to find quiet. From the way that God has strewn the thorns, and hung the clouds, and sharpened the tusks; from the colds that distress us, and the heats that smite us, and the pleurisies that stab us, and the fevers that consume us, I know that he did not make this world as a place to loiter in. God does everything successfully, and this world would be a very different world if it were intended for us to lounge in. It does right well for a few hours. Indeed, it is magni- ficentl Nothing but finite wisdom and goodness could have mixed this beverage of water, or hung up these brackets of stars, or trained these voices of rill, and bird,'and ocean—so that God has but to lift his hand, and the whole world breaks forth, into orchestra. But, after all, it is only the splendors of a king's highway, over which we are to march on to sternal conquests. You and I have seen men wio tried to rest here. They builded themselves great stores. They gathered around them the patronage of merchant princes. The voice of their bid shook the money markets They had stock in the most successful railroads, and in "safety deposits" great: rolls of government securities. They had emblazoned carriages, high-mfUlcd steeds, footmen, plate that confounded lords and senators who sat at their table, tapestry on which floated the richest designs of, foreign looms, splendor of canvas on the. 1 'wall, exquisiteness of music rising among pedestals of bronze, and dropping, soft as light, on snow of sculpture. Here let them rest Put back the embroidered curtain, and shake up the pillow of down. Turn out the lights! It is II o'clock at night. Let' slumber drop upon the eyelids, and the air float through the half-opened lattice drowsy with midsummer perfume.. Stand back, all care, anxiety, and Inouble! But nol they will not stand back. They rattle the lattice. They look under the canopji-. With rough touch they startle his pulses. They cry out at 13 o'clock at night, "Awake, man! How can vou sleep when things are so uncertain? "What about those stocks? Hark to the tap of that fire bell; it is your district! How if'you should die soon? Awake, man! Think of it! Who will get your property when you are gone? What will they do with it? Wake upl Riches sometimes take wings. How if you should get poor? Wake upJ" Rising on one elbow, the man of fortune looks out into the darkness of the room, and wipes the dampness from his forehead, and says, "Alas! For all this scene of wealth and magnificence—no rest." I passed down a street of a city with a • merchant. He knew all the finest houses on the street. He said, "There is something the matter in all these houses. Jn that one it is con' jugal infelicity. In that one, a dis» sipated son. In that, a dissolute father. In that, an idiot child. In that, the prospect of bankruptcy." This world's wealth can give no per» manent satisfaction. This is not ypup rest You an.d. I have seen men try ,,n another direction. A man says, * l lt*l could only rtee to such and such a place of renpwnj il I could gain that office; if J could only get the stand and have my sentiments met with Qi»e good round of band«ciapping applause; if T could o»ly write a book that would Uve, op moke a speech; that would thriH, OP do an aotipn that would pe* .sound!"

You have read of the Crusaders—how that maiiy thousands of them went off to con* quer the holy Sepulchre. I ask you to join a grander crusade—not for the purpose of conquering the sepulchre of a dead Christ, but for the purpose of reaching the throno of .a living Jesus, When an army is to be made up, the recruiting officer examines the volunteers; he tests their eyesight; he sounds thoir lungs; he measures their stature; they must be just right, or they are rejected. But thera shall bo no partiality in making up this army of Christ Whatever your moral or physical stature, whatever your dissipations, whatever your crimes, whatever your .weaknesses, I haVe a commission from the Lord Almighty, to make up this regiment of redeemed souls, and I cry, "Arise yo, and depart; for this is not your rest." Many of you have lately joined this company, and my desire is that you may all join it Why not? You know in your, own hearts'experience that what I have, said about this world is true—that it is no place to rest in. There areliun- dreds here weary—oh, how weary— weary with sin; weary with trouble; weary with.- bereavement 'Some of you have been pierced through and through. You carry the scars of a thousand conflicts, in : which you have bled at every pore; and you sigh," "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove, that I might fly away and be at rest!"

You have chased Pleasure through every valley, by every stream, amH every brightness and under every'.; shadow; but just at the'moment when you were 1 all ready to put your hand upon the rosy, laughing sylph of the wood, she turned upon you with tho glare of a fiend and the eye of a satyr, heir locks 'adder's and - 'her breath the chill damp of a grave*. Out of • Jesus Christ no rest No voice to silence' the storm. No light to kindle the darkness. No dry dock to repair the split bulwark. ,: Oh ye whose locks are wet with the dews of the night of grief; ye whose hearts are heavy, because those well- known footsteps sound no more at the doorway, yonder is your rest! There is David triumphant; but once : he, moaned Absalom. There is Abraham enthroned; but once he wept for Sarah. There is Paul exultant: but he once sat with his feet in the stocks. There is Payson'radiant with immortal health; but on earth he was always pick. No toil, no tears, no partings,, no strife, no agonizing cough, -tonight No storm to ruffle the -crystal sea.

Suddenly the fatte'ft multitude noticed that in the' center of one of tho great tings the end of a rope, which was dangling too high to be reached, had taken fire. The flames mounted rapidly tdWard the canvas. Amid breathless silence someone jerked the other end of the rope, which ran over a pulloy at the Very ridgepole* with the evident intention ol drawing it ovei? so quickly 'that the firo could not be eomtntlni* cated. But when the blaze went through the pully sparks were scat" tered in every direction, and pres* ently the Watchful crowd saw that a spark had ignited a little spdt in the canvas at the top of everything. Then restlessness became manifest in the crowd, and a quidk whisper, "Shall we run?'* ratt over it. , The Transcript says of the eVent: •'Things lobked very serious; for a panic among those movable chah's, with the great throng still blocking the doors, must have meant death for some." The burning spot above was grow* ing rapidly. The manager of the show came forward and commanded the people to sit still. At the samo moment a man bega,n to climb the great center pole by means of a swinging rope. "Hand over hand, up he went— not hurrying at all, for if ho had hurried he could not have accomplished his groat task. Up, up. ho wont, deliberately, surely. '-The 1 burning spot grew and grew, and /the llama flashed up. Before he reached tho top tho tent would be all ablaze! The crowd was ready to break; but now the man was at tho top; he crept up through the canvass, where it was gathered at the pole, and disappeared; then tho quick depressions in the cloth showed that tho man was creeping on all fours toward the bursting flame, and then his two hands came through the hole in the cloth, and were gripping, the flaming edges all airouhdi 'add in an, instant the liro was all out." Then tho audience broke into a loud cheer. Finally ho. came . do.w,n- -.through the hole and began to ."descend 'the rope.
