Bloomers la Chicago
A prephet has appeared in Chicago.
It was time that one came from some
where. The rights of man were being
assailed, and the morals of the country
were being endangered. ' The badge of
masculine supremacj was being stolen
by women, and they were actually to be
seen in public riding bicycles without
long skirts to denote their feminine in
feriority. That was an outrage which
threatened the 6anctity of the home and
the established order of society, and,
worst of all, shocked the modesty and
delicate sensibilities of the men who
lined themselves op along the roadsides
to catch every possible glimpse of the
passing figures, and make themselves
expert witnesses as to the brazen nature
of the exhibition. -
A large part of the community were
unaccountably callous to this new out
break of depravity. But Chicago has a
citizen who realized the danger, and was
equal to the occasion. "Bath House
John" knew the insidious evil wrought
by the new bicycle costumes. He has a
finger on the moral pulse of Chicago,
and is quick to' notice any disturbance
He has penetrated the secret motive
actuating the offending women. They
pretend that they are anxious to take ex
ercise, that bicycle riding is more pleas
ant, more healthful and less dangerous
on a wheel of the diamond-frame pat'
tern, which forbids the use of long skirts,
They make various excuses tending to
give the impression that ' they wear
knickerbockers entirely from utilitarian
motives. But "Bath House John
knows better. ' He understands that
they are seeking to invade masculine
rights and take unto themselves male
attire, which intention, as he says, "is
disguised by the friends of tfiis raging
craze by the name of bloomers and
knickerbockers." : Moreover,- Chicago,
being a particularly staid, modest and
virtuous town, feels quickly the evil
wrought by a demoralizing habit, and
"Bath House John" says that "the craze
has assumed such proportions that it
menaces the public morals of this good
city." Accordingly, he proposes to stop
it. Being a city legislator, he believes
in doing it by passing a law, as was
done several years ago in a city which
objected to the Mother Hubbard, and he
has drawn up a bill forbidding "any
female person" to appear on the high'
ways of the city attired in "bloomers,
knickerbockers, baseball attire or
We hope that the Chicago common
council will give this subject serious con
sideration. It should not be referred,
as lias been suggested, to the committee
on smoke, though the bloomerclad
woman may soon be caught smoking,
but the question raised should be settled
with Chicago's nsual directness and good
taste. After having decided that a
gentleman should not tuck his napkin
in the armholes of his waistcoat in pre
ference to tying it around bis neck, and
settled the controversy whether or not
"a gent in full dress at the opera in a
Fedora hat is in line and dressed
proper," Chicago may well go on to de
termine more points of etiquette The
status of the bloomer costume is still un
settled. It is fashionable in Paris and
London, but the world waits for Chicago
before giving approval. Besides, let the
questions of morals not . be forgotten.
These foreigners are a depraved lot, and
their woman have little sense of pro
priety. It is high time that some trne
Puritan and - American . like "Bath
House" John Coughlin came forward to
protect the virtue and dignity of Ameri
can womanhood. New York Tribune
Died at Hosier.
Death has again visited our vicinity
and removed one of our best and most
honorable citizens ; one who was re
spected most by those who knew him
best ; one who in actions, and not words
only, was ever ready to help those in
need; one who- ever tried to make his
word good without counting the trouble
"R. H. Hunter was born in 1843, near
Lone Jack, Jackson county, Missouri
where he lived until the breaking out of
the civil strife. After the war he re
turned to Missouri, where in 1867 he
married Nancy A. Vestal, who survives
In 1872 they moved to Nevada, where
be farmed in the Paradise valley
While there he did some prospecting,
After residing in Nevada a few years
they moved to Reno . county, Kan.
where he farmed for eleven years, then
he and his brother went to contracting
grade work on the railroad. They quit
this and went into business in Colorado
After a j ear's business there he removed
to Los Angeles, Cal., where he was in
business for two years. In 1892 be
bought a farm on Mosier creek, where
he resided until the time of his death,
June 9, 1895, being nearly 52 years of
age. . : ' ' '
.They who mourn the loss of a loving
husband, a kind and gentle father, have
the heartfelt sympathy of the entire
community. . v, .
Any one who has ever had an atack f
of inflammatory rheumatism will rejoice I
wun mr. j A. oiumm, zzv uoyie
Heights, Los Angeles, over bis fortunate
escape from a siege of that distressing
ailment. Mr. Stumm is foreman of
Merrian's confectionery establishment.
Some months ago, on leaving the heated
work room to run across the street on an
errand, he was caught out in the rain.
The result was that when ready to go
home that night he was unable to walk,
owing to inflammatory rheumatism. He
was taken home, and on arrival was
placed . in front of a good fire and
thoroughly rubbed with Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. During the evening and
night he was repeatedly bathed with this
liniment, and by morning was relieved
of all rheumatic pains. He now takes
especia pleasure in praising Chamber
Iain's Pain Balm, and always keeps a
bottle of it in the house. For sale by
