Makes a Manly Confession.
I am a masn and I should dress like;
a woman, if I were not such a cow
ard, a writer in Life says.
That is, I should revel in velvets, t
in silks and satins, in plumes and ruf- S
fles, in rich or delicate colors, in dar
ing and dashing modes, in endless va
riety suited to my whim, to the weath
er or the occasion. It would be
great fun. It would be an artistic! i
gratification. But I don't dare. t
In the days of knighthood, when I
men were really brave, they out
dressed the women; but in these de
generate days we do not venture our C
fancies beyond cravats. No hnan in f
modern times has dared to dress as
he pleased except Oscar Wilde, and
we buried him with craven hisses.
We men rail at women's fashions,
but in our hearts we know ourselves
to be the slaves of fashion; of one
dull, deadly, monotonous fashion,
which we bate, but from which we are
too cowardly to free ourselves.
