G FEMININE CYCLISTS "Isn't It dreadful?" said the English man; "so immodest." We stood upon the hotel veranda looking at the sea. "What is dreadful?' "There, don't you see—that woman's bicycle skirt, so shockingly short?" A group of cyclers stood upon the lawn, they, too, gazing at the sea. A long EiruLiSH SKIRT, am wouieu may keep a "pub," or licensed dramshop, and be considered entirely and re spectably feminine. They may smoke cigarettes when and almost where they please and still be real ladies. But let a woman shorten her bicycle skirt by so much as an inch above her an kles and the British constitution is shaken.
