Beautiful Women in Wall Street.
Curiously enough, it is in Wall street that
one is eertaiu to see the most stylish und
beuutiful womeu who are now to be met with
in the streets. They drive down the four
streets that inclose the brokers’ offices and the
Stock Exchange in delightful little victorias,
lolling ou the cushions as lightly as if their
bodies were really the mere clouds of gauze
that their drapery makes them seem like. A
liveried man drives each wagon and a gaudy
parasol shielda^each haughty beauty. Always,
as each lightly balanced victoria approaches
Trinity church, at the head of Wall street,
the teams are reined up until their pace is the
very next thing to a standstill, and one sees
the brokers lifting their bats on either side of
the street. Here and there a victoria is seen
to stop as a young speculator in white flannels
stejw into the street to greet the fair lounger
on the cushions. Yet you cannot help but
notice thut such sights are infrequent and ex
cite a great deal of comment from the on
lookers, just as you also are sure to noth?«
that most of the polite men who lift their bats
do so very hurriedly, with apparent awkward
ness ami without looking fairly at tho car
riages. Their manner is exactly what you
would look for in a man who expects to be
guyed for his behavior if the people around,
him chanced to see what he was at.
The truth is that those who bow to these
daily apparitions of lieauty are very awk
wardly placed, for “the street” is greatly dis
turbed over the victorias, and their occupants
know it so well that many do not halt until
they are at least a couple of blocks away,
where the more timid brokers, having seen
the slow moving carriages pass their doors,
have gone hastily, by back alleys aud short
cuts, to meet them out of sight from Wall
street For these women are adventuresses
roiuing down to speculate with their lightly
gotten incomes, ami their daily presence in
such great nunil^i-s as now come there has
scandalized t he mo-e circumspect operators

An Engineer on Steam Whlstlen.
“There is something almost human about a
steam whistle,”said a will known engineer to
a reporter. “When you cross the river to
night pay particular attention to their various
sounds, ami see if I’m not right. You will hear
the *look-out-for-me-I’m a-big fellow’ whistle
of the steamers that run up the sound, and
tho little steam launch, hugging the «lock as it
dances over the water, will give answer in its
‘don’t-forget-me-I’ni-a-sti'anier-too* style. As
you ride in the cars on a rainy day the loco
motive whistle seems to say, ’I’m sorry it
rains!’ The short, sharp screech indicates
clearly that something is wrong ahead.
Whistles that announce low or high water in
the boiler have a threatening sound that
makes the engineer jump to his feet. Steam
whistles at times sound mournful ami at
other times gay. You can hear angry whis
tles and good Matured whistles. To the un-»
employed meebanio the 7 o’clock whistle in
the factory has a despondent wail, and the
thrifty workman lays aside his tools with a
light heart when 12 (»’clock blows. The sound
of many steam whistles adds greatly to the
effect of a public demonstration or celebra
tion. The ooarse whistle, with afrogin lta
throat, can lie heard onco in a while; am! tho
jolly whistle, which seems to say, ‘I’m as
happy as a clam!’ is ever with us. A disabb d
boiler gets sympathy from its whistle, and a
cracked whistle tells you to use it gently, for
it isn’t strong. I have made a study of steam
whistles, and—ami, well I tell you they’re al
most human."—“R. W. S." in The Safety
